Do You Want to Be??

John 5:6 NKJV
When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?

Almost as soon as my eyes opened this morning, I heard those words and I was quickly reminded of a conversation that a dear sister and I had almost two years ago.  I had been struggling with a particular thing.  It seemed to always be a hang up for me.  I never even told her about it.  We had scheduled a girls day.  I am always so excited when our schedules allow us to be together.  She is very wise, but she's very down to earth.  Meaning, she hasn't forgotten when she was my age.  She makes no excuses and she can relate to me in so many ways.  The thing I love about her most, is that she holds no punches either.  She's not rude or mean, and she salts her words and does not speak without the direction of God, but when He gives her a word, she speaks it.  

So there I was with our tea, chicken salad and croissant rolls and an expectation of just an amazing day.  Well, little did I know she was bringing food for me.  But it was food for my soul.  She skipped all the usual catch up talk, she even skipped lunch and she did as Jesus did with this man, and she told me You can ..... if you want to.  She went on to share with me how she had the same issue when she was younger, but that when she made up her mind that she wanted to be made well in that area, she gave it to God and allowed Him to keep her.  

This morning I say to you.... Do you want to be made whole?  Do you want to be well?  Do you want to leave this thing that has kept you in 2019?  Then give it to God and at His word, get up and walk.  I'm walking today... will you join me??
