34"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
Reading the word of God often triggers my mind in other directions. The words remind me of others words He has said and speaks to me to help me live on this earth the best I possibly can. I admit I'm not the best at taking care of myself. I've always taken care of others and still do. The thing is, unless you take care of yourself, you can't take care of others or most importantly, you can't do the will of God and as the scripture above says, "finish his work".
Several weeks ago I found myself in a mess physically so I went to the doctor who promptly asked if I were taking care of myself like I knew I should. Embarrassed I told him I hadn't been taking my medication. When he asked why I had no answer. Needless to say, I came home with resolve to take those meds like I should and do all the other things I need to do to stay healthy.
This is the same thing that God asks of us. He has given us all we need and it is left up to us to use all He has given us to finish the work He has given us to do. If you don't know what work it is that He has given you to do, you can find out by talking to Him daily. Listen with new ears. Watch with new eyes. Feel with new senses. Take a deep breath and feel the power of God.
