Ever since I moved to Arizona I have been relatively healthy.  I’ve had the occasional allergy problems and a little cold here and there, but overall I have felt great. Then earlier this year I woke up on a Monday morning with the flu. I can't even remember how long it has been since the flu hit me. I was knocked out for the entire day. Thankfully it was just a 24 hour bug and I was back to myself. Then over Christmas break I developed a cold and sinus issue that I couldn't shake. It was miserable and just kept getting worse. Working around high school students for the last 24 years has given me a great immune system, but this time I couldn't fight it off. So last week Wednesday I finally went to the doctor and found out I had a sinus infection. Later that day I started taking an antibiotic and felt much better within a couple of days.

Why is it I am so stubborn about going to see a doctor? I get that I am healthy most of the time, but when I am sick why do I want to put off seeing the doctor when I know he will often give me what I need to get better? We do the same thing with our sin. We try to fight it off; we often deny it is a part of us. Sometimes we think we can do the whole thing on our own. God has the cure for our sin. All we have to do is ask for forgiveness and we are made new and whole. Don't hesitate, go to Him daily for the cure, and be made new in Christ each and every day.
