Psalm 27:3 – “Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear. Though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.”
Currently, it feels like my body is the thing that’s at war against me.
The last few days, it has seemed like my mind has been.
Both are equally as distracting from the confidence and strength I hold in the Lord. When I feel sick/my body decides to hate me, all I want to do is crawl into a ball in complete silence. Responsibilities of school, work, friends, among other things definitely keep me from that enjoyable fetal position.
The Lord has reminded me to rest in Him and be confident. Once I recognize these things yet again, I understand that a) He still loves me beyond my conditions, environments, and failures and b) no matter what, He is still in control. He doesn’t have to work to get control back, He has it.
So whether than army is myself, my broken body, or this fallen world – may the Lord be glorified and may he be seen in the wholeness.
