Truth, the enemy of fear

February 15th, 2010

My midwife stopped by this morning to drop off the paperwork I will need to take to the big appointment tomorrow, and told me it’s not necessary to go in to her office tonight for the prenatal visit.  She also wanted me to know the specific challenges and pressures the specialist is likely to give me tomorrow, so that I could be prepared with answers.

Immediately my mind began to work on good responses.  But after she left, my thoughts were swirling and I had an overwhelming sense of weakness.  Fear began to creep in, but so did Scripture.  I think the wrong kind of fear comes from believing a lie.  Here is the Truth God took me to (from Psalm 71):

“My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits.  I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;  I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.  O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare Your wondrous works.”

Joe is not able to be with me for this appointment, and my midwife said she may or may not be able to meet me there, depending on whether she is needed to attend a delivery.

This afternoon, a friend called me to tell me about her experience with these specialists.  She said that one seemed to make more of an attempt to be friendly than the other one, but to be prepared that they will be cold.

I emailed a few friends this morning to ask them to pray for me tomorrow, and my dad wrote back this afternoon and asked if he could go with me!!  What an answer to prayer!  See, O self-of-little-faith?  Your Father has everything under His control!

Share it!
