A Feverish Reflection
Greetings Dear Reader,
So I avoided the illness that has been sweeping my coworkers for over a month. It has finally found me and forced me to rest. Since I love what I do missing it for the sake of a fever and the sniffles seems an intrusion.
The truth, however, is that I probably am pushing myself too hard. I probably need the rest. So a couple of days of hot soup, hot tea, and rest are in order. I like that it gives me time to pray. I like that it lets me catch up on my reading.
I hate feeling that I have to nap. I hate naps. When I am sick I am always glad I did. I think that following Christ in all of this is a lesson in yieldedness. It is a reminder of how little I control. It is a call to follow in faith that I cannot be everything I want to be without taking care of my health.
Even in the obedience of rest I can follow. So that is what I will do.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
