I am also scared of all the unknowns... Will I experience side effects? Will I get sick? Will my liver and kidneys be able to process all these drugs? Will my blood cell production be able to keep up? Will I be really tired (I'm so tired of being tired!)? What will it feel like?
All these thoughts swirl around my head. And then I remember a Bible verse I memorized years ago.
"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5
That's it! I need to take every thought captive to Christ, make every thought obedient to Christ!
Instead of just letting these thoughts swirl around my head causing anxiety, I need to grab hold of each one, look at it, and compare it to the truth of Christ. And if the thought doesn't measure up to God's truth, then I need to throw it out.
Will I experience side effects?
"In the world you will have trouble; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
Will I get sick?
"I will bring health and healing..." Jeremiah 33:6
Will my liver and kidneys be able to process all those drugs?
"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens." Psalm 68:19-20
Will my blood cell production be able to keep up?
"You give me a shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me..." Psalm 18:35
Will I be really tired?
"The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people." Psalm 68:35
What will it feel like?
"My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Exodus 33:14
Please help me to continue to fix my eyes on You, Lord, and to take my every thought captive to You!
