Early one morning, on my way to work, I stopped at our local convenience store. It was very obvious to the cashier why I had stopped that morning, and she did not have to ask how my day, or days ahead of me, were going to be.
On the counter in front of the cashier I laid my plan of attack against my head cold.
I had nasal spray, multi-cold medicine, pain reliever, cough drops, and a can of pop, intended to give me a lift and energy for the day.
When I got my billfold out of my purse, I noticed I had some Kleenex to assist my runny nose, as well. I now was set for a day of challenge!
I did manage to thank the cashier with my scratchy head cold voice, and gave her a little bit of a smile.
I hear this sickness is going around, from one person to the next. It simply, presents frustration within ones day.
The head cold affects your mind, making it fuzzy, causing you to not think straight. Your eyes water, you feel pounding in your head, you can’t properly breathe. Then comes the hardy cough, where, in time, your sore ribs speak back to you.
I put my pen in my hand and actually thought I was going to write a story. I chuckled to myself, laid my pen down, and told myself, “There isn’t going to be a story today, the way I feel.”
I felt pretty handicapped from the head cold. A blank sheet of paper was all I could offer for the day. It’s amazing how sickness can prevent us from doing what we should be doing, and enjoy doing.
Then, I thought about how Jesus put spittle on the people’s eyes and made them see again. How he touched them and made them well again.
The key to receiving your healing from God is to have faith. Healing was not a side issue with Christ; it was one of the main issues with him. Jesus often said to those he healed, “Your faith has healed you.”
What about today? Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
I would have loved to have seen those healings done I would have been in the healing line myself.
As the medications are starting to work, along with proper bed rest, and prayers, I’m sure I’ll be on the mend shortly.
That is why we should feel blessed each day we are healthy. It’s one of the greatest gifts we should be thankful for in our journey in life.
