Anticipation Anxiety

For he sows seeds of light within his lovers, and seeds of joy burst forth for the lovers of God!
Psalm 97:11 – TPT

Today is full of anticipation and anxiety as I await on a couple of answers. As I thought about this post, I began to see the number three showing up in my life. Let me explain.

The first answer I am waiting on is the results of my MRI. This was the third test to find out what’s causing my pain. I had an X-ray, an ultrasound, and finally the MRI. (3) The first two tests discovered I had kidney stones, but they are on the opposite side of my pain. The results of the MRI will directly contribute to the decisions leading to a possible back surgery, which would be my third one. (3)

I am anxious, but am prepared to accept the terms of relieving my pain.

My husband and I are anticipating an answer on the offer we put in on some property on the coast. This is the third property we have tried to buy. (3) We are truly hoping that ”the third time is the charm!”

I have been a wreck lately. The pain has prevented me from doing anything more than sitting in my chair. So everything is getting behind on my writing. Which doesn’t make sense because I can sit when I write. That tells me it’s more my stress level that is preventing me from writing.

I even put off writing this blog for that very reason. All my stress getting poured out on the page may help me feel better, but does it help anyone out there in reader land? I have my doubts.

I came to the scripture about the seeds of light and the seeds of joy as I tried to catch up on my reading of the Psalms. It stuck to me. Sometimes what gets sown into our lives is just a seed. It may not look like much, but when it comes bursting forth there will be joy! That is what I anticipate!
