Today I had my top wisdom teeth taken out. To say I was anxious about it is an understatement.
You see, ten years ago I had my bottom two out and the experience was horrid. I’d given birth to my first born five months earlier and although the procedure of having my teeth taken out was fine the healing afterwards was awful. This dreadful experience left me fearing having to go through anything like this again, so a few months ago when my dentist told me my top wisdom teeth had to go I was not a happy bunny.
But…..Thank God that He is GOD!!
Today I had the procedure and it was NOTHING like my experience 10 years before. My God hears and answers prayers. I prayed for the dental team to be guided by His hand and they were so kind and considerate to me. I prayed for protection during the procedure, limited pain and a speedy recovery and let me tell you friends I had virtually no bleeding, swelling or pain!! Hallelujah to my King!! He is so very faithful!! Even in the midst of my sinful worrying and despair, He steps in and shows me He is God and He is able!!
I don’t know why, but I’m forever doubting that God has got me, so often I allow fear to overtake me, yet time and time again my patient Father whispers to me that He is for me, He is with me, I am His!!
Jesus I thank You for never giving up on me, I thank You for stepping into my circumstances in the midst of my unbelief and demonstrating who You are time and time again. You continue to astound me every day and today I wept tears of joy as I marvelled at Your loving kindness all over again. You truly are and always will be the one and only true lover of my soul.
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”
2 Corinthians 4:7-9 KJV
