Fear Of The Future

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” ~Psalms 27:1~

Diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder and having diabetes, my future is filled with grim reality. I understand diabetic complications and am regularly reminded with erratic sugar highs and lows. As my neurological disorder is rare, prognosis is not clearly understood. Having lived through some very difficult times, it is easy to take stability for granted. Good times can make me spiritually complacent.

My SPS kicked into overdrive for a couple of days, rendering me to the distant familiarity of painful crawling on the floor. Fear took over and worry followed. Consumed with future negative ‘what ifs,’ I lost sight of who holds my future…whatever it may be. Turns out, it was just a couple of bad days, but a necessary reminder.

The Lord is my salvation and strength. Why should I fear?
