My Anxious Thoughts

Anxious is the word for the day. A little later this morning I go in to see the oncologist then head right over for my chemotherapy treatment. I try to keep things in perspective, keep telling myself I’ll only feel lousy for about a week then things will start looking up again. One week. I can do one week. It’s like having the flu, right? Sort of. Except it isn’t.

Maybe I think about it too much. I know I do. I need to focus on the weeks I feel good, keep my eyes a week ahead and my thoughts on the good the chemo is doing and reign in this anxiousness.

My prayer for today is Psalm 139:23, “Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts.”

And my mind is on Psalm 33:20-22, “Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in You.”

Here we go . . .

  1. Lord, Please fill Mike with peace. Heaven-sent peace that will surpass human understanding and blow away anxiety. Peace that will replace “anxious” as the word of the day. Jesus, we also humbly ask that you minimize Mike’s side affects from today’s treatment, even to the point of non-existence. You are mighty and awesome, Father!


  2. Lord we ask in confidence as we know you hear our prayer…where two or more are gathered………. we lift Mike before you..


  3. Susan J. Reinhardt

    Isaiah 26:3 – “He will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee.”We’re praying, Mike.Blessings,Susan


  4. Mike, you have come so far. You have run a good race, letting us all see your struggle and see God’s comfort as you’ve traveled forward in this uncertain time. God will take you through this battle to the finish line and we will all rejoice together when the chemo is done.
