A couple of weeks ago my ankle gave out for the millionth time. The pain was enough that I couldn’t simply walk it off, but the damage didn’t require crutches either. Having my body betray me can be so frustrating, but this time around, I was reminded of God’s faithfulness.
If one part of the body isn’t working well, the rest of the body is strained and going about every day activities becomes more difficult than normal. That is why our bodies needed such a detailed and perfect design that only God could have created. Our body, His temple, needs to work as perfectly as possible, because if one part of the temple is off, the rest of it is off as well.
I didn’t ask for weak ankles, nor do I appreciate the pain that comes with having them. But even when I’m laid out on the couch with an ice-pack on my foot, I am reminded that God reveals His strength in our weaknesses. I am also thankful for His sweet healing and I don’t take my body for granted because it only stays together because of God.
2 Corinthians 12:10
