Often the cure to what ails us is not easy.
Losing weight takes self-control and lots of sweat.
Wounds must be cleansed to heal properly.
Sometimes surgeries are required.
And often there is pain that comes with the cure.
No wonder Jesus asked the man who had been lame for a long time, “Do you want to get well?” (John 5:6)
We fight hard against what will cure us because it may cause pain right now.
It can mean hold our tongues when we prefer to lash out.
Or waiting when it should be our turn.
Or accepting the fact that God did it all and we just have to accept.
But once we are healed we know the truth. The cure was worth it.
What cure are you fighting today? I pray God helps you accept the cure that you may be whole.
