The Tenant

I am a wimp. I avoid doctors and medical tests. I cancel appointments and take forever to re-schedule. I rationalize when I don’t feel well. Yes, I am a medical wimp.

Recently, while gearing up for an appointment that I didn’t cancel, I began thinking about caring for the body God gave to me. Somehow, remembering WHO my body belongs to gave me a whole new perspective. Suddenly, it wasn’t about MY fear, MY pain, and MY discomfort. It was about caring for the body God chose as my ‘house’ here on Earth. I felt like a tenant ‘renting’ a living space, and I realized that it was up to me to keep it in good condition. That means making repairs when necessary. Also, as my ‘structure’ begins to age, I try to remember that God put the ‘real’ me safely inside – so, even when my ‘house’ falls apart my soul will emerge whole and strong.

Am I still a bit wimpy? Well… yes, but I’m learning and trying to be a better tenant. How about you?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This was truly inspired by the Lord. So short but packs a lotta punch!!! I felt like my name could've been put into all those "I"s. Well done!

Grrr... I guess I'll make that appt with a stomach specialist that I've been putting off for months. I've been getting all the "little" stuff taken care of for the last few months and leaving the "big" stuff for last. But made to think about it, I suppose it's true.... I'm just being a wimp about it, not looking forward to the tests that I've needed far too long. But this isn't my body at all, though I'm the one responsible for it. Okay... I'll make the phone call. You're an awfully good friend and faithful tenant of the body you house. Love you!

Great word! I need to take better care of my body. I eat lots of garlic and drink a few table spoons of organic vinegar. After I started doing that my health started improving but I still could use some improvements. Thanks for the reminder. God bless you.

You know Peggy, I never thought of my body as being the house that God has chosen for me to live in. I am not good about making or breaking appointments! Thank you for this very wise reminder of just who owns this body. I love you, Sharon

Sis. Peggy, thank you for this reminder. You are not alone. I've procrastinated seeing my doctor, and when I did, I didn't follow his advice like exercising, and eating right. My health suffered. But God is good. He reminded me about taking care of this temple of the Holy Spirit, and now, I am back to a healthy lifestyle. All it takes is a simple obedience and trust that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. I like the title, "The Tenant." God bless,Gloria
