What Our Sick Souls Need

She's sick in the night. 
The 5th to succumb to this stomach bug that is making it's way through the family. 
The birthday girl. 

Weak and in need.
I have been up for long hours each night. 
It's been years since we've had a stomach bug. 
Now the youngest. 
Aren't we all sick?
Spiritually sick? 
Our bodies inching towards death each day? 
Our weary souls sick with sin?
The deep dark place. 
In need of redemption. 
A daily walk to the cross. 
Being washed anew. 

Psalm 51:7
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, 
and I will be whiter than snow.

The darkness shattered. 
Stepping into immeasurable light.
Practice in putting others first. 
Setting our desires aside to seek God's will. 
Seeking truth in matters before us. 
When our sick souls are sanctified, aren't we a new creation? 

2 Corinthians 5:7
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: 
The old has gone, the new is here!

Ah, to be made well. 
Soul cleansing well. 
Big deep breath well.
We'll pray for the wee one to be physically well. 
While living to be spiritually well. 

Hebrews 13:21
equip you with everything good for doing his will, 
and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ,
 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
