So it’s exam season…
I feel as though its not just my academics that are being tested but this is a test of my faith in God. This past week I have been having serious panic attacks and my mind has been clogged with very dark thoughts of fear and anxiety. Its been so bad that I couldn’t open my books and when I did it just got worse. I’ve had occasions where I’ve been scared but not like this! This has been a serious battle to say the less, but nevertheless God has been constant. At first I felt reluctant to pray because I felt as though i was only calling on God in my time of need. BUT I had to break that lie that God won’t help me. I realised I was operating from a mindset that I had to be “perfect” before God could help me – LIES YOU TELL! Fortunately God doesn’t work that way – unconditional love is real y’all! I see this as an opportunity to go deeper in God, this is where the sacrifice of praise comes from.
I’m writing in the midst of this battle to say that I know God has a plan for my life and that I own the truth that I AM VICTORIOUS because I know who’s daughter I am. My song of the week – no longer a slave is literally my song for this season.
I choose to own my truth –
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 2:7
“11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13
“15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
