Yes You Can My Child
Well, my Neurodermatitis is daily getting worse. The rashes and itching are popping up constantly throughout the day driven by my nerve pain. It’s definitely getting on my nerves and leaving me very uncomfortable. But, I’m learning something the devil doesn’t like. I’m learning to be proactively prepared for the pop ups. I know it’s just another switch he is hoping will make me feel so tormented that I ultimately flip out.
With God’s help I’ve chosen a different approach. I will not let it get the best of me. I will keep get the appropriate topical lotions nearby to immediately ease the itch. I will look for ways to prevent what I can. I will keep praying to a God who I know hears and answers prayer. I will not let it just send me tumbling into further distress.
God has given me the will power to fight through this madness and itching all over. He has given me the discipline to do whatever necessary to keep pressing forward. He has given me the faith to see beyond my fears of wondering what might happen next. He has given me the ability to calm down and not just go crazy every time I feel crazy. I’m totally relying on the Holy Spirit to keep stabilizing my mind, heart, response to whatever life throws my way.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
