Cold season

I’ve been battling a cold for a week now. I’ve increased my vitamin C and D intake, increased hand washing, used Vicks, taken medicine and tried all the tricks and I still feel horrible. As I was driving the kids to school today, I was thinking about all the things I was doing to fix the problem and to prevent spreading it to others.I started thinking of things I could have done better to prevent it. I don’t drink water (I know, I know, its horrible but I struggle so much with that one), I have vitamin supplements on my nightstand that 50% of the time I fall into bed without taking and probably a million other things that if I actually kept up with I could’ve avoided this cold all together. Then I thought, how often I do this in my spiritual life as well. If I lived daily the way I should, was in the Scripture, hearing from God, praying, and stopping to think before I acted or reacted. How many times could I prevent the pain and hardship? All too often we wait until we are in the midst of something to take action and by then it’s too late. Just like with my cold, the pain and symptoms are already there. Already have to be lived with and dealt with. Some can leave permanent, lasting damage or weaken us to other things. Already can be passed to others around us and make those we love and care about suffer. So today I ask you, are you doing everything you can to prevent those Spiritual colds?

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11 KJV
