I began my day with going in for routine lab work. I met with a nurse afterwards to go over my test results. Today I found out my numbers were low enough to have to take shots. I received one shot today and will go back the next two days. Apparently the nurse didn't get the memo that I don't like to hear about side affects and proceeded to tell me all the negatives that come along with the shots. Satan loves to knock us down when we least expect it. I struggled throughout the day with fear of what "might" happen to me. It's kind of strange now that I'm writing this blog to think I let taking shots scare me after what my body has been through these past four months. I know lab work is very important for the doctors and nurses to treat, but I also know Who's in control of everything that my body deals with. My faith, hope and strength will continue to be placed in the Lord. I know I am fearfully and wonderfully made and God is still sovereign over everything in my life. I was told to stay away from Wal-mart and eating out these next few days. Thankfully, I've never have really enjoyed going to Wal-mart, so that won't be an issue for me. I will continue to listen to my body and let it rest if I am tired and I will also continue to remind myself that "greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world." I was looking for a verse to share and opened the pages to my bible and this is the exact spot it opened to. This verse was highlighted from Susan Goss. God is so in control of everything in our lives even the small details of Him reminding us of how much He is control. Susan calls me everyday and tonight she called and prayed with me and together we prayed about rebuking lies from Satan about fear. In the margin of my bible beside this verse she wrote; "Janet, you are a great example of fear not! Love you, Susan Goss" Isaiah 43:1b-3a "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." If you ever doubt Who's in control of your life, remember Jesus is the answer and He is the One in Control.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
