Ouch

If you have ever stubbed your toe, or hit your finger with a hammer, or got something in your eye, you are well aware of the word, “Ouch,” or its equivalent.

Depending upon your religious persuasion or social grace you might not restrain yourself from using a stronger phrase; for one word might not express what you feel!

Ouch, is a normal response to physical pain and we do whatever it takes to stop the pain, from rubbing the hurt to using a drug. The level of pain dictates the level of response that is needed. It has been said that pain is our best friend, for in the absence of it, many have found out too late they have a disease that has gone too far and can not now be treated.

The older I get, this tool of pain, is used more often to inform myself of something that needs attention. Trying to maintain what is considered “a life” is occupying more of my time now, and it is getting more difficult to accomplish some things that were once easy and simple to do.

Many Bible scholars believe that GOD’S original plan was for man to live forever, his body rejuvenating itself on a continuing basis. There is still inherent in man some of this process, for our body reproduces new skin, blood, and new cells. However, because man now lives in a fallen state, the process doesn’t fully complete itself and we get old and die.

In the Biblical account of Creation, we are told that GOD created the heavens and earth, and our original environment and then He said; it was good. But there was a fly in the ointment and man sinned. The only protection GOD gave man to keep him from sinning was to obey what GOD had told him to do. When they failed to obey, they became subject to the aging process and to death.

GOD values HIS word very highly and does not take kindly to anyone violating it. Some might say; I don't believe that! And that is your right to have an opinion! The simple fact is that, not believing it - - doesn’t make it NOT true. You may say I don’t believe in God, but your not believing in Him doesn't mean He doesn't exist. His existence does not depend on what you believe!

It is a mistake to think you can control reality by not believing in it, whether it is GOD, sickness, poverty, or any other reality.

Psalms 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Psalms.14:1The fool has said in his heart there is no GOD
