Just a quick blog tonight…er…this morning. We just returned from attending our nephew’s graduation. It was wonderful seeing family! Unfortunately, my body betrayed me again, and I ended up with a doozy of a panic attack. These things usually happen in social situations — maybe I secretly don’t like being on my best behavior? HaHa! Seriously, there is a link between them and PMS. I can go and do and be social — and then all of a sudden I’m bodyslammed with chest pain, tightness, stomach cramps, nausea, trouble swallowing, and the kind of panic that makes my knees knock.
My husband was a great help. I kept my feelings to myself but privately told him so he could pray for me and hold me. As we walked into the auditorium across the long parking lot, the press of his arm around me sustained me.
So it is with great interest that I read this passage in Proverbs 3:
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
For the record, I don’t have all the answers. I don’t even want to have all the answers! I like the fact that God doesn’t share everything with me. I just wish he would make this chest pain go away so I can get some sleep tonight…I’m holding on to that promise of “health to my body and nourishment to my bones!”
