You Know It
by Cher Wandell
“Anxiety in the heart of a man causes depression,
but a good word makes it glad.” (Proverbs 12:25)
Preparing for exams was always hard for me.  I tended to over study so much that I would get a major case of the nerves on test day.  
In college I had a teaching buddy named Marc that would coach and test me before our finals.  I had tons of notes and note cards that he would grill me on come test day.  Each time I aced them and he would say, “You know it.”  Marc would hand me back my notes and I would test him on his stuff.  When we were done, he would put his notes away, lay down and take a nap.  I would continue to drill myself on the notes up to the time of testing.
Finally, I asked Marc,  “How can you just lay down and take a nap?”  He basically would say, “What I know I know.  I`m not going to get upset over what I haven`t learned yet.”  Anxiety over possible failure kept me from seeing what I already knew.  A good word from someone finally helped me see that I too could relax, because I did “know what I know.”  The stuff I didn`t know was less than what I did know, and getting a grasp on that was what got me through each test.

We love and pray for our military.  God bless you and uplift you in times of despair.  He will never leave you or forsake you.  Call on the Holy Spirit and He will guide and direct your path.
Pray for all our soldiers currently serving in the military.
