The Flu

I’ve never believed in getting a flu shot… until today. The flu has swept through our family. Three out of five are down, me included. I’m thankful you will not be able to get my germs through the internet, and I can still write, though at 6:30 this morning I didn’t know if I would even feel like doing this. Thanks to modern medicine, though not healed, I can function.

Healing, disease, prayer…It seems this conversation will not leave my mind. Feeling awful for a few days always reminds me of my friends who have chronic illnesses and feel bad every day. Where’s the healing? Have we lost some of the authority and power the early church had?

New paragraph:

Purpose. Sitting around my house because I can’t function well enough to do anything really makes me question purpose. How we all need it. I know this flu will pass, but after that, what’s my purpose? Am I just thinking too much these days?

Rather than giving you a discourse of all of my wisdom or lack thereof on these two topics, purpose, and the healing power in the church, I’m wondering what your thoughts are.

But I will leave you with this excerpt from “Jesus Calling“. I know some of you need His peace today. Actually, we all do.

Peace be with you! Ever since the resurrection, this has been My watchword to those who yearn for Me. As you sit quietly, let My Peace settle over you and enfold you in My loving Presence. To provide this radiant Peace for you, I died a criminal’s death. Receive My Peace abundantly and thankfully. It is a rare treasure, dazzling in delicate beauty yet strong enough to withstand all onslaughts. Wear My Peace with real dignity. It will keep your heart and mind close to Mine.

John 20:19,21; John 14:27

You’re in my prayers.

Much love,
