The Thought: This morning I had an adrenalin rush when Terry came into the bedroom as I was stretching awake and he said, "I will always be here to protect you from bad things." Immediately my brain jumped into high gear thinking in a panic mode...what happened for him to say this to me?
Seems like when the ground shakes for an earthquake folks begin to panic seeking protection and a safe place. I read a story about a little boy that was swinging in the yard as the earthquake hit and his mom hurried outside to bring him inside. He told her "I am moving like the earth, I can't feel it."
Seems like he side stepped the natural order of panic that follows scary things or bad news.
In the bible David felt fear when King Saul tried to kill him. He wrote Jonathan, his best friend of the heart and poured out his fear that death was stalking him. David cried out to the Lord and it was here he found God to be his rock, his fortress and his stronghold.
Where do you go in times of stressful events? As a survivor I go into panic sending myself into a clear thinking mode to handle what is laid upon the table. I truly wish I could tell you my first thoughts are to pray, but they are not. It is still something I am working on. God is our only stabilizer.
Be anchored in Him always.
"In my distress, I called upon the Lord." Psalm 18:6
