I noticed that I was having a hard time praying. It was not depression. It was a lack of focus. My mind would wander. I would stare at the walls. I could not think of anything to write about. I finally realized it was happening and it was because I was sick, physically, not mentally.
It is amazing how our bodies and minds are connected. We will do better if we put them together. I really did need more naps and foggy mind time.
Christian theologians debate the ways in which the mind and body work together. Actually they have a third and fourth element, depending on what verse you are quoting. I go with four based on,
(Mar 12:30 KJV) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.The debate is not so much on how many but on whether they are a unity or separate. I go with unity. I don’t think you can really separate them even though they have different roles. I think that is consistent with the resurrection we will have into some type of physical body.
So I am recovering a bit. I look forward to the day when death and the grave get put in their places and we emerge with our incorruptible bodies.
See you there.
