Image result for sickness

I've been thinking about mortality and what it means. As I get older and begin to lose more friends to natural causes it makes me think of my own health. I am not living the best healthy life that I should be. When things get rough I drink. I smoke cigarettes daily, and even though I know that these things are unhealthy I still do them. That is my physical health issues. But what about my spiritual?

Spiritually I'd like to think that I am as healthy as I can be... but in that sentence lies the problem. Complacency in being as spiritually healthy as you can be is a setup for backsliding. I'd like to think that in the weeks gone by I've prayed diligently. I have in certain occasions, I mean I have prayed for others more than I've prayed for myself. That's all that matters right? Not quite. The instructions given to me on how to pray has lain opened and unread. Available but ignored. Although I am not spiritually dead I am spiritually sick and just like physical sickness I can feel it in my body. I can feel it in my head as my thoughts race and run together, lacking the peace I had when I was diligent in ready The Word. I can feel the sluggishness of stress and the restlessness of unfulfillment.

Pastor once referenced the scripture above paraphrasing "church is for the sick" I have to disagree. Although the sick may attend to get well it is also to maintain the health and strength of those who may find themselves coming down with a spiritual cold. Today I feel convicted, I've made time to do everything g else but take my daily dose of medicine (reading my bible). Sometimes I feel lost when I pick it up. Flipping through pages just to find something that sticks out to me. That, however, is not the best way to study the bible. If you are not being spiritually fed than you are spiritually sick, If you are being fed spiritual lies you are being spiritually poisoned.

One sign that you are falling under spiritual sickness if the sliding back into your old life and old way of doing things. For once you were spiritually healed "you took off your former way of life" The evidence of falling ill is less prayer, less bible study, missing church, leaving everything up to you and your worries instead of putting things in God's hands. If you step back and look at your life before Christ and compare it to your life now you can always spot when you have come down with a spiritual cold. So tell me, how will you get your spiritual cure?

Get Ready

I was walking at work one day when I heard a small still voice say "get ready". It stopped me in my tracks because there was no one else around other than myself. Get ready? Get ready for what? "Get ready". In my heart, I knew what it meant but I was and somewhat am not so much reluctant but anxious about what was ahead of me. 


How many of us have prayed for financial deliverance? How many of us have had faith that the Lord would give us that deliverance? As Christians, I am certain that we all have. "God, why do I struggle so much financially? X amount of dollars is not enough to live off of. Lord, I need financial deliverance!" Those are all things I've cried out and prayed before. I'm also the one who takes what little I have and puts it into the offering bucket, praying desperately along with pastor to press it down and shake it up so that it will be returned unto me tenfold. To what avail?  The truth is, I have done absolutely nothing to change my financial situation. Week after week, month after month, year after year I have prayed desperately for increase, and like so many others, yet I have been left wanting.  As I read the scriptures above I suddenly remembered The Parable Of The Talents ( Matthew 25:14-30 ). This passage is about a man who decided that while he was off

Mental Health Pandemic

This is more or less an impulsive post. After many years, for the first time, I decided to watch Good Will Hunting. Of course, I'd seen it referenced in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but I'd never once actually seen the movie. I was quite shocked to see that Robin Williams was in this movie. Although the movie was an award-winning drama and was meant to play at your emotions, the entire time I couldn't help but feel saddened by the absence of Robin Williams in real life.
