There is an epidemic in our land.
You’ve heard the news. But it’s not a virus or cancer. It’s not the flu or pneumonia epidemic. It’s a sickness of the soul that comes from listening to the enemy. God has been talking to my heart. He’s been showing me my mind has been infected with lies from the enemy, faulty beliefs, and wrong mindsets. I’m ready to be healed and walk by faith, because I’m sick of it.
Sick of it.
I’m sick of worrying about what others think.
I’m sick of trying to hide.
I’m sick of trying to be dark when God calls me to be light.
I’m sick of being sugar when God calls me to be salt.
Sick of small living when God calls me to live large.
I’m sick of safe-ing myself, entertaining myself, and amusing myself to death.
Because giants must fall, walls must crumble, and oceans must part.
Get unsick of it.
Father, you are Jehovah Raphe, the One who heals us. Help us to be sick enough that we will do what ever it takes, (get up early, turn off the TV, get off social media, put down our phones) and come into your Presence and ask to be healed. Sickness is not our legacy, but life and life abundant. Amen.
The woman gets unsick.
25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
You’ve got to be close enough to touch Him. Admit you’re sick, reach out your hand, and take His healing to heart. Your faith in Him will heal your soul.
If you’re are sick of it too, leave me a comment. I’d love to chat with you.

Great advice!! I too am sick of it!
So what are we going to do about it? I had a great conversation today with the owner of the 11th Harvest Cafe in Niles, Michigan. She has a vision for how to use her gifts, and talents. She is walking out this thing called faith! She asked me to join her working with her soup kitchen. I said yes and can’t wit to get started! Following Jesus is so much better than being Sick of It! I am praying for you Cheryl!

I am sick of it as well!! I am excited to hear you are going to help with the soup kitchen! I have been volunteering at ours for 7 years. Following Jesus is so much more rewarding than anything else we do!!
A little bit of our Father’s love goes a long way!! We have to resist the world and lead others to Jesus!! Stop the negativity, don’t feed it or by into it…be the light, spread the positive!!
Great to hear from you Renea! This is the first soup kitchen we’ve ever had in Niles, Mi., that I know of. I can’t wait to help! I’m glad you are sick of it too!
Maybe we can start an “I’m sick of It” movement. I’m trying to think of an opposite phrase to “I’m sick of it.” Any ideas?
Jane VanOsdol says
Amen! I am sick of it too. Sick of the horrible,disrespectful way Americans treat each other. I have been praying for unity in our country. And praying that we can agree to disagree without being disagreeable. Change our hearts, Lord!
