Our Health

Dear God: It feels so good to be in good health! Last month, when I had that flu bug for almost a week, and was so miserable, I couldn’t imagine or even remember what it was like to feel good. But I promised myself that if I ever recovered—okay, I love getting pity but I was pretty sure I wasn’t about to die—I would remember to give You thanks.

I guess most of us feel like wellness should be the default mode, and that we have a divine right to just feel wonderful and bouncy for eighty-five nonstop years. But illness and pain and death are an inescapable part of this sinful, broken world. Every day where we experience the abundance of good health is actually You overturning the natural, shattered order of things.

I hope that when we finally reach heaven, and enter into an eternity of vibrant health, we don’t forget how great that is in contrast to Lucifer’s universal not-health plan down here.

Thank You again.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
