Good post,love the idea. Its like, i have a small bag packed and ready to go, to the hospital, if i need to go. I have CKD, so i keep this ready, one reason Hubby wouldnt know what to pack, in this bag is a list of my meds. So the idea of a spiritual box is so good. Bobbie loved your answer also.

I really like this idea because it reminds us we are sick and in need of help. Too often, we go on wallowing in our misery, thinking this isn't something Lord concerned over. Bruised feelings, someone steps on our toes, pain to the heart or broken-heart, too often we nurse our hurts like Shelly said with food or some other stuffer. When what we need is to go quickly to our medicine chest and find the right medicine for our hurt. A merry heart doeth good and we can restore that heart with worship music, Scripture, or some good old-fashioned words from Joyce Meyers or our other favorite writers.
Be prepared, trials will come but being ready puts us in a much better position to get over the hurts and move on too victory. emoticon emoticon
Thanks again Glittergirl, your truths are golden.

Its a really good ideal i haave the music set up and now i have to put the bible verse togetheir in 1 place this will help when the battle is going on

Job: 22 v 21
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.

We are living by this for are family:
Ephesians 3 v 20

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

I believe what God has put in me

So glad that you all like this idea. We need to share with each other the things that work for us. It is together we stand when we are not alone. Through our thoughts and prayers, through good times and bad. Being in a group with merely numbers is NOT what uplifts us. It is when we are held embraced by another person's words, cared for when receiving a goodie, and loved by when a caring friend sends you an email. Let's do these things for one another and be known as the team with a heart behind their words!

Just a word from the old and the wise emoticon

Be very careful about the secular music emoticon A lot of the secular music is the music that some of us listened to when we were in the world. It can bring back bad memories, good memories, evil memories, lustful memories, and just like any other addict, even secular music can cause a Christian to fall. emoticon We have to be careful, the enemy is everywhere emoticon

Great Idea Glitter,

I have quite a few CD's of Jeremy Camp, Jennifer Knapp, and Sherry Youngward.

All of these are awesome musicians.

I do have a bookshelf of different books I occasionally read here and there. But most of all the music is the best in helping me get through something.

Sometimes even secular music helps that positive and uplifting.

Great idea. emoticon

This is a great idea Shelly and I basically use my computer for it.

What I do is I have created a folder in my Yahoo email and every night or every day during work I write a letter to God and I send it to my folder in my Yahoo. This way I can access it from work on my computer or from home on my cell phone. I am never without my medicine cabinet.

We also have to remember that anytime we are in need for even the smallest things we can call out to God and we have our healer, our protecter and our Father by our side.

Hallelujah !!! emoticon

This is a really good idea. Instead of grabbing a box of something unhealthy to stuff in my mouth when I am stressed, I can grab my spiritually uplifting medicine box.
Thank you for sharing! emoticon

I love this idea! I have all of those things but I love the idea of having a special box to keep all of it together for easy access!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart!

I love this one. This really is so true and so needful especially in these last days. That devil is mad as a hornet and throwing fits all over the place, so we had better have a plan and a medicine box, cabinet, bag or what ever it takes to with stand every on slaught of the enemy. he hates us and who we are in Christ Jesus and he will do what ever he has in his tool box to bring down our faith and to kill us deader than a door nail. But, we have our spiritual weapons of warfare and have them all over the house, in my heart, in my head, on my computer, in my drawers, in my many purses all ove the place when you look through where I live and what i use you will find the word of God staring back at you from somewhere, in the most unexpected places because that is where that enemy jumps on us is from the most unexpected places. he loves to pounce on us when we get overly tired. So, one big tool in our tool box arsenal should be to get enough sleep and rest all the time, excellent post Shelly. emoticon emoticon emoticon

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 bag
a small pretty storage box (bought at a store)
your computer

WHAT TO STOCK YOUR MEDICINE CABINET WITH

I would recommend stocking your medicine cabinet with:

christian music
spiritual books
verses written out on a piece of paper

Those things will give you a good start.

Other Suggestions:

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. emoticon emoticon
