And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
Oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all had perfect health?
No more cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, autism, mental illness, viruses and the list of so many more attacks on the body, and yes, even the common cold.
The gift of perfect health isn’t something that we can all have. No matter whom you are.
Everyone on this planet, humans and animals alike, will not escape having some type of illness that will cause us to stop and think that we could have been free of sickness and death, had not Adam and Eve obeyed God’s instructions when they lived in the Garden of Eden.
I know, I know. Some reading this post think that the Garden of Eden story, Adam and Eve, and yes, God is just an overblown fictional piece of crap that should have long ago been discarded from the hearing and reading of mankind.
But, the story is factual and I will just leave it at that.
So, here we are once again in the midst of the over-eating, over indulging, and over spending of the November to January holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s).
But think on this.
Imagine waking up one day having no more aches, pains and sickness.
What would you do if you found yourself, once going on a regular basis to see your doctor, no longer in need of the visits, or, prescription drugs?
Or how about the thought of once being bed ridden and housebound and it is now over with? You can now go about your days without needing a private nurse or caregiver.
The gift of good health is possible but reality is that good health is not the perfect health that God wants us to have.
Good health is fine…but I prefer perfect health and that will come soon…but until then, let us be mindful that we still have the opportunity to treat our body and mind with love and care.
1 Corinthians 10:31 – Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
