Very often, what we need most in life is what we save for "emergencies only".
Got a cold?
Pop a bunch of Vitamin C (even though you've been eating McDonald's drive through for a month straight and not taking care of yourself).
Got a problem?
Rush to the ER (even though you could have prevented it by caring for yourself for the last 5 years).
Got a crisis?
Better start praying...
What if instead of using the best things in life as our spare tires, we began to use them as the tools they were designed to be - the steering wheel/ guiding-force of our lives?
Caring for our bodies through regular rest, managing stress, nutrition, and hydration can prevent so many needless ills. Caring for our spirits by talking with our Creator and applying what His Word (the Bible) has to say about how to live our lives could save us so much misery.
Believe me when I say that I am preaching to the choir. This gentle reminder to me, and to you is something we shouldn't ignore. As the saying goes, "A stitch in time, saves nine." So don't put off caring for yourself another day. Don't put off taking to God. Just begin, without trying to know all the answers or be eloquent. Daily sincerity and good habits, even if they are small, are worth more to you than occasional panic-driven obedience.
