After waking from my nap the question of, “Will you face you trials with fear or with faith?” crossed my mind.
My mind’s eye saw my body and it occurred to me that I know what it’s like to have extreme swelling; what having the worst monthly “lady time” of my life is like; how being morbidly obese feels; not being able to say more than two words at a time because of being greatly out of breath; the feeling of walking a very short distance and yet having my heart beating hard and not being able to catch my breath; feeling like my body is falling apart; thinking, “I’m going to die”; feeling scared.
I also know what it’s like to have peace like a river in my soul and to feel the Lord comfort me and calm my troubled mind. Truly, I choose to face my trials with faith. When feeling sad or afraid I come to myself and my frame of mind is alright after letting scared and sad feelings go.
