Bearded Dragon, Beets, Baby, Brother, and Boils
OK, I know boils may sound like a strange thing to be thankful for. After suffering from MRSA Staph since I was nine years old. It wasn’t until I was 27 that I was diagnosed with MRSA Staph. I had been seen by several different specialists over the years that had no clue what was going on. All they would say is that I would eventually outgrow whatever it was. In August of 2010, one popped up in the back of my neck. In turning to the Bible for answers after my chiropractor suggested I look into bitterness, I found in Isaiah 38, King Hezekiah had a boil that almost killed him. It was the bitterness in his life that caused the boil. In verse 17, we see the reason for the use bitterness; “Behold, it was for my welfare that I had great bitterness; but in love, you have delivered my life from the pit of destruction, for you have cast all my sins behind your back.” Bitterness is the band-aid for emotional wounds. It doesn’t heal them, it just let’s the fester until it comes out in some physical ailment. Once I understood it I started dumping it all at the foot of the cross and saw a reduction of the outbreaks.
