So often I take my health for granted. Just under two days ago I suddenly came down with a nasty stomach virus. Within a few hours I went from being strong and healthy to waking Jeff up so he could lift Abby out of the crib for me. I was that weak. I am so grateful that I recovered quickly and today feel normal once again.
"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." III John 1:2
It's simple enough for us to realize we are physically ill, but what about the state of our spiritual life? How healthy is our soul? Are we dehydrated from a lack of filling up on the Living Water and Word? Have we exposed ourselves to a virus or parasite by not suiting up with the protection offered us? (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Spurgeon said "The great test of your soul's health is, What think you of Christ?"
