Under Pressure? God Is In The Business of Making All Things Well

The past two weeks have felt like some of the most stressful two weeks of my life. I found myself in the midst of yet another outrageous allergic reaction that has kept me from attending school, church, and a host of other things that I’ve added into my weekly routines. As a result of this allergy, I am on medication that doesn’t seem to allow me to sleep more than three hours at a time, and to top that off I had three major finals due this week. Two of those final projects have presentations attached to them.This is not even mentioning the writing deadlines that I have been assigned. My sporadic new sleep patterns made it extremely difficult to get work done, I could barely focus on anything. On top of not being able rest, I just didn’t feel like myself. Just as all of my deadlines seemed to mount up in front of me and I felt anxiety creeping up behind me, I somehow found rest. I was finally able to lay down and got the best sleep that I have gotten in the last three weeks and a peace that I probably haven’t felt in a long time. Two of my three finals are still not complete, but something tells me that this will all work out as well. One of my finals was already post-poned for the entire class (which almost never happens). Now that I’ve had rest and I am able to think with a clear head, I can reflect and say that there has never been one time that God just left me hanging, so why would this time be any different? Now that I am off to tackle the mountain of work that I have before me I have something else to hold on to,

When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. (Psalm 94:19)
