A few nights ago, I had a panic attack.
I decided to skip the gym and I wondered if that was God punishing me. I went home, had some leftovers, showered and for the life of me I couldn’t keep still. I paced the room but I felt as if something bad was about to happen and I couldn't stop it. I was emotional and of course the tears came. I sat on the edge of my bed in complete bewilderment because I couldn’t believe what was happening. I I cried and I thought I would be okay, but, nope.
I watched an episode or two of the West Wing to keep my mind off of whatever it was but again, nope. It was almost 12 and like the old lady I am, I needed to get my sleep!
The last resort, that should’ve been the first option, the only option, I read the Bible. I opened the Bible application on my phone and Exodus 14 to 20 put me to rest. I laughed when I got to Exodus 14:14.
“The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace”
You would not believe, the stillness that fell over me. The rest was God delivering the children of Israel from Egypt.
Be still my child; trust me. He could’ve given you the easy way out. He took the children of Israel the long way. They complained, and he still provided for them. No questions asked, all the time. If he delivered them, why do you think he’s going to leave you in the place you are in? Be at peace, child be still.
