DIS-EASE. When I first heard the word broken down like THAT, it made SO MUCH sense. It is the opposite of EASE. It is DIFFICULT. It presents problems and challenges and removes EASE.
DIS-EASE. DIS-STRESS. DIS-INGENIOUS. DIS-TURBED. DIS-LIKED. DIS-APPEARED. DIS-PLAY.
It is interesting that all of these “DIS’s” do not function the same way. However, an interesting sentence can be constructed here:
Disease causes distress. When it is displayed it is disturbing. I will not be disingenuous when I write that disease is disliked.
In the case of AUTO IMMUNE DISEASE, we are creating antibodies that DISLIKE our own bodies and target them to DESTROY them. DIS-TURBED? Me too.
I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto disease. This is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid.(check out Gena Lee Nolin’s website: Thyroidsexy.com for more info.). It is frequently undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and being diagnosed has been eye-opening to me. I have struggled a lot with my emotional health and mood swings. It seems that this is part of the disease. Auto immune disease leaves me to believe that DIS-EASE leads to disease. I would imagine ESPECIALLY in the case of Auto immune disease.
DISTRESS leads to DISEASE? Do you agree?
Father, what is causing us DIS-EASE, whether it manifests physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually….What is the cause? Show us what it means to be at EASE….relaxed……Oh Lord, may we learn to rest in YOU!!! May we know true and complete healing from the healer HIMSELF. We ask for HEAVENLY WISDOM to lead us to answers we’ve longed for. Help us to be willing to make right choices in what and how we think, speak, eat and move. IN YOUR NAME JESUS!!! JESUS YOU ARE OUR EASE!!!!!
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
