Well my husband and I showed up and unknowingly to us the test was 3 hours long and I would have to give blood 5 times. 5 TIMES! Which wouldn't have been such a big issue if my husband didn't have to leave for work but unfortunately he only had time to stick around for the first 3. The first 3 went fine but each time I told him he couldn't leave me...but at 8:00a.m. there I was reading "Uninvited", actually, dreading 9:00.
As the time approached I took the last 5 minutes to pray. I prayed for peace, strength, courage, calmness, and a nice nurse. And although I was nervous, I sat down like a big girl, and you know what? God delivered on all my requests. I explained to the nurse I was anxious and this was actually my first blood test I had ever taken alone. She was extremely nice and told me to talk to her about anything in order to get my mind off of it, which I proceeded to do...in Spanish. 3 seconds and it was done and she told me I was very brave :). Now I only had one draw left in an hour and after another quick prayer I was given the same nurse, and after now being basically a pro at giving blood, it was all done. I felt very accomplished and thankful to my God and my nurse.
We all have fears, big and small, but so many people struggle with praying to God for the small things in their life, thinking God does not have time to deal with their minuscule problem when there are other "real" problems happening to the other 7 billion people in the world. But one thing a professor told me during a Pentateuch class struck me about how God works in the details. During one of our class discussions our professor mentioned how the Jews believe that God takes a role in everything in life, big and small. I thought this was so beautiful and how we should all live. I've held on to that same belief because I know 1) God is almighty and can absolutely handle anything I throw His way, and 2) He loves me and cares about what I care about. God even answered my prayers today so faithfully and obviously about a simple blood test because He knew I was scared. He will certainly do the same for you as well.
