As I approach another on-call shift, I find my belly aching more and more. I am fearful of what I might face. Will I know how to handle the situations that arise? At a Level I Trauma Hospital, there is no end to the variety and difficulty of situations that come up. I worry that I will freeze when faced with something new. My stomach knots with each buzz of the pager. I know that this fear is not healthy, nor is it a sign of faith. I am reminded of my own posting a few short weeks ago.
Lord I believe; help my unbelief! Amen.
