TMJ

After two different antibiotics and three weeks of no relief I returned to the doctor Friday to find out I have TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome, not a sinus infection. I now refer to it as Too Much Junk. I have been carrying around way too much stuff. I was on ibuprofen around the clock for three weeks and Friday I began to pray specifically about the stress (sin) that I had been toting around. God never intended that I carry around the stuff that I had in my bag this month, so I unpacked and repented of overstuffing my bags. Today I have not had any ibuprofen at all – Praise the Keeper of my bags!

I found this description of stress, I would include the entire description, but you might mistake this for a new age blog and take me off your blog roll or your favorites list, so I will spare you and me. "Stress is simply a fact of nature—forces from the outside world affecting the individual." Stress may simply be a fact of nature, but it is a not a principle of God. He tells us to be anxious for NOTHING, cast ALL our cares on Him, PURSUE peace…I could go on and on and on. So, I must re-focus and turn away (repent) from my stressful (sinful) ways and seek His which are higher than mine. I step out of chaos and into peace; if not in reality than by faith.

Ha ha! I'd love to hear the entire description!!! I've been involved in witchcraft before being saved and know a lot about "super spiritual" things and spiritual warfare. You won't scare me away!!!
