Exam Anxiety

Got exam anxiety
Afraid something not good will be discovered
I’ve been having symptoms that give me reasons for concern
And I also need to replenish some meds
I’m anxious to have exam at all
But I know early detection is better than too late

When Dr says “Now let’s talk about this”
I go uh oh, this the area where the symptoms were
So anxiety goes way up, thinking how am I going to take the news
I look at the X-ray
But can’t interpret what I’m seeing

Every time doctor says “that looks good”
Not only does anxiety decrease, but thank You Jesus increase
Relax, everything is not only in God’s hands, it’s in a His will
Jesus is able to comfort and heal

When doctor says everything looks good
There’s a deep gratitude that comes over me
Thank You Lord for your mercy
Thank You it was no disease
Just from time to time I experience discomforting
Thanks that one more time I’m healthy
And there was no reason for exam anxiety.
Scripture References:
Matthew 15:30-31

15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

Doesn’t God Love Me?

Doesn’t God love me?
Those words are easy to say
When your problem worsens
And out of it you can’t see a way
And there’s no support like it used to be
You could also ask the question easily
Is God punishing me?

But it couldn’t be
Because God said as far as east is from west (Psalm 103:12)
Our sins He’ll forget
And Jesus died for our sins
So I shouldn’t be getting paid back for what I did

Is it just a storm I’m passing through?
If so, when will I see sunshine again?
I keep in mind EVERYTHING has to end
Even heaven and earth shall go away (Matthew 24:35)
So, my problem has to end too
Because God’s love is true.
Scripture References:

Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from
thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Psalm 103:12
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us

Revenge

I picked the date and time to execute the message of revenge
Had the email ready just needed to press send
But before the revenge time came,
I heard God telling me to refrain
Cause even though I felt deceived and disrespected
This is a relationship that’s got to be protected

He reminded me that it seems you don’t need this person now
But life can change in seconds
And if you caused a rift due to revenge
On this person you may not be able to depend
So for now the email you should rescind

Refrain? This is so hard to do
When someone you trusted has so disrespected you
You want to tell them a thing or two

I was reminded to hold my peace, as they’ll come to me again
Will it be with deceit? or will an apology they extend?
Whichever way, at that time get it straight
But revenge right now don’t initiate, just cool off and wait
Vengeance is the Lord’s , He’ll repay (Romans 12:19).

 

Insight

It’s our human nature to wanna strike back at someone who does us wrong.  But striking back can lead to the end of a relationship. This can be significant if the relationship is between close friends or relatives. So before striking back, consider the permanent effects of enacting revenge.
