A Simple Dentist Visit

Wow!  I recently moved to a dentist that is closer to me to travel and made the first appointment.  They did the usual x-rays and checkup which revealed something interesting.  I have been grinding my teeth at night.  Not to a headache or jaws hurting type grinding, but a habit that is slowly working on my big teeth in the back of my mouth.

Concern! Go to the store and based on the dentist's suggestion buy a mouth guard.  Yikes!  This looks like something a football player uses.  I need to get on this right away because the check up revealed that I need few crowns as a result.  Enough of the Personal Dental Visit....right?

Well, I realize that I maybe kinda sort of have a stressful job as most people do.  Shocker, I know.  At night I seem to be restless and awake because I am thinking of the multiple things that need to be done tomorrow or during the week or month.  Can we all say the magic word....ANXIOUS!

I read Philippians 4:6-7 and "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."  but WAIT!!  v7:  "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

I realize that I am humanly trying to handle all this stuff without God.  Yes, I believe in Christ as my Savior and Redeemer.  Then, why am I ANXIOUS?  Because I am not submitting and surrendering to Him in prayer.  I pray daily but normally for forgiveness of my sin and everyone who has a prayer request and some other things.  That's not good, because in my life I need the peace of God that will guard my heart.  So, now I pray before bed thankful to the Lord for the day and it's wonderful blessings and for PEACE so that I may stop being ANXIOUS.  Grace and Peace to you, Sleepy Disciple
