Do You Listen When Your Body Talks?

Our bodies communicate with us in so many ways, but oftentimes, we never listen to them. If we will only make it a habit to listen carefully to what they are saying, then we can save ourselves from lots of troubles. For example, our bodies communicate to us when we are hungry or when we are already full. But no, we let ourselves go hungry when we are so busy and try to push the feeling of hunger out of our mind's perception. The result, sooner or later, we develop ulcers. Or our bodies tell us that we are already full and fully satisfied, but no, our mind still wants to gorge on the delectable fares on the dining table. And the result? Sooner or later, we develop unwanted fats that can lead to full blown obesity.

Pains, fevers, dizziness, neuralgia, and other bodily symptoms are the ways our bodies communicate with us. We must be very sensitive to their messages if we want to live a fully healthy and longer lives. A nagging pain in the neck and at the napes could mean a high blood pressure. This could be accompanied by dizziness and a feeling of nausea.

For most part of my life, I have not been to doctors. They only make me more sick and panicky. I just listened to my body talks and I responded to them accordingly. Of course, I am not recommending what I am doing to others. I can do this because I live by faith and not by sight (senses). My complete trust and confidence in the goodness of God and His faithfulness to His promises plus the unmistakable language of my body have kept me relatively healthy and alive all these years although I was diagnosed to have life threatening diseases a long time ago. When your body talks, please listen it attentively, then do whatever necessary things you have to do and live a relatively healthy and trouble free life.

The other night, I just saw on TV the most mesmerizing sight I ever beheld in my entire life. There in the National Geographic documentary, I saw the miracle of the incorruptible body of St. Bernadette of Lourdes. Scientists in various parts of the world are baffled by this most strange and unique phenomena. When St. Bernadette died, her body was not mummified, yet when her body was exhumed several decades later, church and medical authorities found it to be perfectly intact and had no visible signs of decomposition. The body was exhumed twice more, the last at 1925 when her body was finally brought to a church for public showing. Written below is an excerpt of the life of St. Bernadette culled from Wikipedia.

"Saint Bernadette (born Marie-Bernarde Soubirous, January 7, 1844- April 16, 1879) was a miner's daughter from the town of Lourdes in Southern France. From February 11, to July 16, 1858, she reported eighteen apparitions of "a Lady." Despite initial skepticism from the Roman Catholic Church, these claims were eventually declared to be worthy of belief after a canonical investigation, and the apparition is known as Our Lady of Lourdes. After her death, Bernadette's body reportedly remained incorrupt, and the shrine at Lourdes went on to become a major site for pilgrimage, attracting millions of Catholics each year. On December 8, 1933, she was canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church, her Feast Day is celebrated on April 16."

In my heart I know that the Lord has granted a great miracle to arouse the faith of people around the world and to show His great love and care for this little girl who had been faithful to Him. He showed the world the future of His children when their corruptible bodies will be transformed into incorruptible and glorious bodies to meet Jesus Christ in His second coming.
