On October 23rd I took a sick leave from my employer and I'm embarking on a journey to wellness.
Over the last two years I've had cellulitis three times, osteo-arthritis has taken up residence in one knee and the other foot and bursitis came for a visit in my right hip and elbow.
For over three weeks I've been battling an ear infection and I'm ready to get well...I think.
Most important, I want to be spiritually alive and vitally connected to my God and Savior Jesus Christ.
I'll be posting during my 30 Days to Wellness and trust that my reflections will be an encouragement to you.
We serve an awesome God and we're trusting Him for good things.
Theologically I believe that God can and does heal His people according to His will and purpose and that before sin entered the world it was God's intention for everyone to be well and whole. Since the fall we have inherited sinfulness. Sin was dealt with at the cross. Atonement was made for every sin. Some people believe that the atonement provided healing for every believer in Jesus Christ and that it is our birthright. I don't hold that view. I believe that God allows sickness in the lives of some of His children to work out His purposes. I'd rather be well and that's my prayer but until then I will rest in the knowledge that the Father knows what's best for me.
Whew...I was preaching there.
