(Good morning! Coming a little late today, and no post yesterday due to a busy out of state weekend. )
Our bodies. We think we have so much control over them don’t we? We believe if we eat right, wear helmets, stay away from risky behaviors, and do everything just right we can have long lives free of diseases, sickness, accidents, etc. NOPE. Our bodies are clay…moldable, changeable, and imperfect. They will break despite our best intentions. God made it very very clear that the power of life and control of our bodies is HIS, not ours. He breathes life into us. HE heals us. He blesses us with talents and gifts suited to His plan for who He designed us to be.
Our bodies are a treasure and it is right to care for it as such. We should do everything we can to treat this clay as if it is more precious that gold in honor of our Savior and Creator. But we also need to give credit where credit is due, and trust that His plan for this vessel is the perfect one.
