I got sick a couple of days ago. Started with post nasal drip, then sneezing, coughing, runny nose. You get the picture.
I reread portions of Merlin Carothers' books on praising God for EVERYthing. Good or bad. The result of practising what I read? God is really healing me.
That's not to say that I don't take my vitamins, or pray for healing... but the simple process of acknowledging God's love, his total control and that the cold was permitted for a reason... mentally saying "Praise God" when I cough... has resulted in me feeling SO much better today than yesterday!!!
The catch? You don't praise God with your eye on the result...you praise God with your eye on God and what He wants to accomplish.
