Dr Jesus Makes House Calls

I am thankful for Dr. Jesus. The Bible tells us that Jesus went about, doing good, and healing all who were sick and oppressed of the Devil. 

Jesus even made a house call at Peter’s home, and healed Peter’s Mother-in-law who was sick with a fever.  Then she was able to get up and prepare a nice meal for her guests.

It seems these days that there is a lot of virus and illness going around.
Understand this is not the only reason, but one factor that might continue to cause a person to be sick is unsettled arguments. Also bitterness, resentment, and holding grudges are detrimental to your health!

When I was a little girl, my brother, sister, and I would get into arguments, and our mother would insist that we say, “I’m sorry,” and apologize to each other.
Then mother would require the other person to say, “I forgive you.” 

Oh how I hated that, because sometimes I was so angry that I did not want to apologize or forgive.

But you know, after doing something many times it becomes easier on the next occasion.

The Bible tells us, Not to let the sun go down on our wrath, and it is a good idea to get things out of the way quickly, and not allow them to fester.
So if you sense sickness coming your way, examine your attitudes, and get anything that is old business out of the way.  Then rejoice, sing and praise the lord, for cheerfulness is like medicine from the Lord.

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.
Just a little after thought -
Let me share a little secret to keep a happy marriage. It is for us ladies to learn at times to simply Shut our mouths. You may laugh at that, but it is true.
Being quiet when you want to reply angrily is difficult; I can certainly tell you that! But in the long run it will keep peace in your home!
The Bible speaks in the book of Proverbs thusly: It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

Such wise advice, Hazel, as always. Yes, it's hard to tame our tongues!! I am constantly asking the Lord to give me the courage to speak up when I should, and the discipline to keep silent when words would not be wise or kind.

I'm a work in progress!!



Very True Hazel! Knowing when to 'Shut Your Mouth' is great wisdom.
I love the time you take to prepare these stories. I really do appreciate them.
Thanks for the linkup too.
Kindest Regards.

Excellent advice, Hazel! It is so true that anger and bitterness can suppress our immune system and leave us prone to illness. And even if they didn't, the spiritual scars they cause are even worse. Thanks for the great post & for hosting, & God bless!
