I went to the Lord’s Clinic to have my routine check-up and it confirmed I was ill.
When Jesus took my blood pressure, He saw I was low in tenderness.
When he read my temperature, the thermometer registered 40º of anxiety.
He ran an electrocardiogram and found that I needed several “love bypasses” since my arteries were blocked with loneliness and could not provide for an empty heart.
I went to orthopedics, because I could not walk by my brother’s side and I could not hug my friends, since I had fractured myself when tripping with envy.
He also found I was shortsighted, since I could not see beyond the shortcomings of my brothers and sisters.
When I complained about deafness, the diagnosis was that I had stopped listening to Jesus’ voice talking to me on a daily basis.
For all of that, Jesus gave me a free consultation thanks to his mercifulness, so my pledge is to, once I leave this clinic, only take the natural remedies he prescribed through his words of truth:
Every morning, take a full glass of gratitude
When getting to work, take one spoon of peace
Every hour, take one pill of patience, one cup of brotherhood and one glass of humility
When getting home, take one dose of love
When getting to bed, Take two caplets of clear conscience
Do not give in into sadness or desperation for what you are going through today. God knows how you feel…… God knows exactly and with perfection what is being allowed to happen to you in your life at this precise moment.
God’s purpose for you is simply perfect. He wants to show you things that only you can understand by living what you are living, and by being in the place you are now.
May God give you… For every storm, a rainbow, For every tear, a smile, For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, A faithful friend to share, For every sigh, a sweet song, And an answer for each prayer.
