Smite Thee

Wow, I'm feeling better. I had one of those things the body does that makes you feel miserable for a while however resolves itself quickly and when it does, thanks be to modern medicine, I feel better.
I have known what it is not to feel better, but wow, now I really do feel better. Hmmm?
What I do believe is that God is not up there saying Smite thee...and flinging a lightening bolt of chaos or harm down on us...just because.
Rather God is saying, oops somehow you got smited, Here I am.
Wow I feel better. Isn't that what the faithful person is supposed to do. To realize that indeed they feel better because they know what it is not to feel so good.
I remember one of our children responding to a fever reducer so fast I couldn't believe it had happened. Again yeah...for that help when fevers could kill 100 years ago. But they went from that limp and sweaty on the bed to OH MOMMY! I'm HUNGRY!... John's sister was visiting and amazed with the change.
So, if the smite thee thing hits, Remember God is right beside you saying...Ok here I am...Let's get up together.
"We fall down but we Get up...We fall down but we get up...For a saint is just a sinner who fell down...And got up."

God abides
