Healing Through Pampering


Ahhhhhh.  One of the ultimate luxuries of vacationing at some resort might just be the famous “couples massage.”  To be pampered in such a way was something totally foreign to me for most of my life.  Most of the back-rubbing I received was when I just worked to hard, and had a cramp or something.  A quick 2-3 minute rub-out was as close as it got to something that might be called “a massage.”  I’ve done the “real” massage thing a few times in the last ten years, but even now, I can’t imagine this activity as fitting into my normal schedule or routine.  I know how good it feels.  I just don’t do it that often.

Now, imagine if there were an activity in which you could participate, that would have the same net effect on your mind and soul, just as a good massage does for your tired or aching body…

Such an activity would be sought out, would be pursued relentlessly, right?


Proverbs 3:5-8

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
            And do not lean on your own understanding.

      In all your ways acknowledge Him,
            And He will make your paths straight.

      Do not be wise in your own eyes;
            Fear the LORD and turn away from evil.

      It will be healing to your body
            And refreshment to your bones.

Do you need pampering today?

Where will you go? To whom will you turn?
