Things and Stuff – All Things

I am way off schedule due to dental work yesterday and more first thing this morning! I’ve shared before that dental visits overwhelmed me. It’s the shots that bring anxiety to me!

Yesterday was rough. It seemed like stuff just kept coming at me! Ever have a moment where you entertain a negative thought that sends you spiraling down memory lane?

My last root canal was tough! I was not prepared mentally for complications! For a brief moment, old doubts flooded me like a ton of bricks! It’s interesting when we entertain one wrong thought and the emotions that creep to the surface. My day got worse, especially when pain and discomfort hit my face. I was starving and needed to stop to the store. The lines were long and this too added to the day that kept on bringing.

As I was standing there waiting, thinking 2013 had some very rough spots and Thank God, the year is about to end when I remember all things. Romans 8:28.

This made me smile and remember that God can use good and bad things to grow and keep us moving forward. On my way home, I realized that I was being tested and decided to sing my 🎶🎶going around the mountain, one more time 🎶🎶🎶 song! Retesting is in my future!

Today was much better! Thank God. I had an abundance of grace today. Many times when we are going through stuff, we can feel like we’re all alone but we’re not. Let’s keep the faith and stand on Romans 8:28.

As 2013 comes to a close, let’s be thankful for those things and stuff that helped us grow and family and friends in our life.

Have a safe and blessed Happy New Year!
