Dr Jesus Makes House Calls (repost)




Jesus Heals Peter's Mother-In-Law

I am thankful for Dr Jesus. The Bible tells us that Jesus went about, doing good, and healing all who were sick and oppressed of the Devil.

Jesus even made a house call at Peter’s home, and healed Peter’s Mother-in-law who was sick with a fever. Then she was able to get up and prepare a nice meal for her guests.

It seems these days that there is a lot of virus and illness going around.  Understand this is not the only reason, but one factor that might continue to cause a person to be sick is unsettled arguments. Also bitterness, resentment, and holding grudges are detrimental to your health!

When I was a little girl, and my brother, and sister, and I would get into "word fights,"my mother would insist that we say, “I’m sorry,” and apologize to each other.

Then she would require the other person to say, “I forgive you.”

Oh how I hated that, because sometimes I was so angry that I did not want to apologize or forgive.

But you know, after doing something many times it becomes easier on the next occasion.

The Bible tells us not to let the sun go down on our wrath, and it is a good idea to get things out of the way quickly, and not allow them to fester.

Let me share a little secret to keep a happy marriage.  The suggestion is for us ladies to learn at times to simply Shut our mouths.

You may laugh at that, but it is true.

Being quiet when you want to reply angrily is difficult; I can certainly tell you that!  However in the long run it will keep peace in your home! The Bible speaks in the book of Proverbs thusly:

It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

So if you sense sickness coming your way, examine your attitudes, and get anything that is old business out of the way.

Then rejoice, sing and praise the lord, for cheerfulness is like medicine from the Lord.

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.

  1. Certainly our spiritual health affects our physical health! And in marriage as in so many relationships, silence can be golden. Thanks for these reminders and for the insightful, well thought-out post!
    Love in Him,

  2. So true. Similar to the old saying, "You are what you eat," so it is with our minds. We are what we focus on. This is good old fashioned common sense... which isn't so common anymore...
