I hate being sick. I hate not feeling 100% healthy. I despise it. I don’t believe it is the way we are supposed to live. I constantly proclaim and profess health over my life and that of my wife, and those around us, our loved ones. It is the way are meant to live. Without going into too much detail, let me just say that a healthy lifestyle is a given right to each and every person on this planet, a very expensive price was paid for us to have this (amongst other things).

So, what to do when you indeed get slapped by a flu or a stomach bug and it refuses to let go? This is what I’ve been dealing with the last 3 weeks. From being man-down for 3 days to feeling better, to feeling bad again. Feeling drained and sitting with stomach cramps, to feeling better again. It’s been this yo-yo ride of good and bad. As a true believer in health I can claim all I want, if I feel crap I feel crap. This is the dilemma I am sitting with. What to do? Normally I ride the flu or whatever sickness that I get out with eating healthy and supplementing cleverly. This has worked for me for quite some time now. I am not a big fan of strong medication, or antibiotics.

But… do I have to reach the point eventually and say, ok ok… I need to just lay down my pride, (or is it arrogant boldness?) and take some antibiotics? Will it help?

I dunno…

All I know is the mind is willing but the body is not. This is the Dilemma. Would we all not love being in a position where we can truly buffet our bodies like Paul does in Romans? Would we all not love to be in a position where our minds are strong enough to say to our bodies ‘get better!’ or ‘be healed!’. Is it this easy? Is it dependent on our will power, or that of Jesus? How does it work? I do not know how healing works. All I know is it is a given right! We deserve it, and we are destined to live inĀ  perfect health. I believe it IS possible to be in a position where our minds can truly be the master of our bodies, our minds CAN say to our bodies ‘I am not tired’, ‘I do not have a headache’, and ‘I am not sick’.

But, until then… perhaps I should scamper down to the doctor and get my dose of antibiotics in shame…
