“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.” Psalm 119:67 (KJV)
A friend said he was glad he had been sick because he learned so much about healthy eating and eating according to one’s bloodtype. It’s great to feel some power and sense of achievement in gaining strength, overcoming an illness. Also, when God helps us. And there’s that proverbial silver lining you can find in any cloud.
Oswald Chambers, “My Utmost” August 20th: “It’s the sick person who really knows what health is.”
