Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. – James 1:2-3 NIV
God loves us in sickness and in health. Sometimes we don’t know why we have had to endure periods of illness, but we often end up appreciating what God does for us even more after experiencing hardships.
When we are healthy, we can praise Him. When we are healed, we can shout for joy.
Good health is precious and we can be grateful for it. When we take responsibility for our health and deliberately plan nutritious meals, exercise, and pray continually, the Lord rewards us with more energy and thankfulness. Amen.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. – Psalm 34:17
Sometimes we just have a bad day, like the one I had yesterday. Maybe we “got up on the wrong side of the bed.” I started the day with brain fog, and drinking caffeine didn’t help matters.
Maybe we prioritized others before ourselves. Maybe we needed to make healthier choices for ourselves.
It’s okay to focus a little more on self care, proper diet, and well-being in order to serve others at a higher level.
The Lord knows our troubles, and He hears us. He listens attentively. He cares about us and wants us to make healthier choices.
Jesus may not have lived a long life on Earth, but He spent many of his days healing. He lived in fulfillment of His divine purpose. Amen.
