When you have a headache most adults know just what to take and where to go to get relief. When you fall or injure you know you should apply ice to reduce swelling. But what about the injuries what affect you the most? Those spiritual bruises, that attack of the mouth from your co worker, the stress from a long hard day at work, what medicine do you need to cure those things? It is called your spiritual medicine cabinet and it will help you more and last longer than any drug out there!
HOW TO CREATE YOUR SPIRITUAL MEDICINE CABINET
this can be done the old fashioned way or it can be "high tech". I use a shoe box for my medicine cabinet. However, what you use does not matter nearly as much as what you stock it with. Another thing to use as your medicine cabinet is your computer. You can store "medicine" on your computer instead of a box. This comes in handy if you travel a lot or are on the computer a lot.
How To Use:
a shoe box
a small pretty storage box (bought at a store)
WHAT TO STOCK YOUR MEDICINE CABINET WITH
I would recommend stocking your medicine cabinet with:
verses written out on a piece of paper
Those things will give you a good start.
Your spiritual medicine can be as small or as big as you need it to be. Put anything that you feel will be useful to you. You can buy a small journal or note book and stash a spiritual journal in there. Or you could collect some blogs/posts which you have found helpful here on Sparkpeople copy them and keep those in your medicine cabinet as well. Have fun and get REAL relief when you need it the most!
A little note from Glitter:
I have been thinking about doing this for about a year and just recently started to create mine. I need to add some christian music, and a few books, as well as some verses from the bible. What 1st got me thinking about this was many months after talking to my friend Griff on the phone. She was telling me when we are upset, angry, or hurt we must praise God. she said it is the quickest way to start to feel better. Then she told me about a time when she had just done it and what a difference it made. As she began to sing all the unhappiness lifted off her. many months later I started to do it as well. I thought to myself, I should create something to put praise music in, then when I want to praise or need to praise God it will be right where I need it to be. I just wanted to share my idea with you. Sometimes God speaks to me throguh Joyce Meyer. many months ago I hear her talk about gathering stuff togrher to help you when you are hurting. It was like to me, God saying, Shelly when are you going to get that spiritual medicine stocked? So, anyway, just wanted to share woth you. Hope everyone has a good dy today.
