A Secret I Learned Today

Today is the kind of day that you just want to open up all your windows and let you house air out! So that is what I did! It is 76 degrees out there at the moment and sunshiny. I have cleaned my carpets - that really needed it. And in the midst of vacuuming and cleaning my carpets - I came to a realization.

First to explain that I got a comment on my post about Promoting Health - that encouraged me to use the principles in that post to help me through the stress of my sons recent job loss. And as I thought about it I realized a wonderful secret that I think is just what I need to do.

Yes my Son's job situation adds extra stress - but hopefully it will be short lived stress. Something that seems to give me stress - is fear- fear that the cancer will return. I don't know if you really understand it unless you have been diagnosed with cancer. Once you hear those words- even after treatment, even after you hear that all clear, there is fear that the cancer will return. It's not like I think of it all the time - but here and there that fear arises. And so as I reviewed the quotes given in the post Promoting Health and then I realized the secret. Every time that I feel that fear rising up in me - I need to remind myself that Jesus Christ is in control. And that NO matter what happens I can depend on Him to get me through. Hopefully the more I practice this secret - the less often I will experience the fear.

Maybe you, too, have something in your life that causes you fear - and maybe you can use this secret to ease your mind and to strengthen your believe that God is in control and that He will be with you no matter what!

Hope you are all having a great day! :o)
