Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing

Cough Drop Wrapper Theology


This morning I felt a cough coming on so I unwrapped a Halls Cough Drop popped it in my mouth looked at the wrapper and read, “Get back in the game.” How did a cough drop wrapper know what I needed? Lately because I’ve been living life as a bench warmer because shortness of breath, chest pains, an enlarged prostate, the need to baby my hips when walking at times life has benched me. And much to my surprise a little cough drop wrapper theology provided me with just what I needed so I immediately took it to task to help me get back in the game!

There are times when it is easier said than done! Getting back in the game is not as easy as it sounds. Perhaps that would not be the case if it weren’t for the power of our memories. Personally whenever I get ready to get off the bench my memory kicks in and says, “Remember your lung capacity is 52%, you better stay right where you’re at.” So guess what? The spirit it willing but the flesh is stronger (I know that’s not what the scripture reads but sometimes things don’t always work out the way they should).

While the cough drop put an end to my cough the wrapper theology continued to pursuit it’s agenda to get me back in the game, “Don’t wait to get started!” and “Fire up those engines!” the chastisement continued. “LORD,” I prayed, “I will supply the engine you supply the fuel and the spark and let’s get off this bench!” And that’s where God comes in because even though I may be a “ninety pound weakling bench warmer” He is the Original “Fuel’em up, Fire’em up Re-Starter!”

Got a cough? Watching life go by sitting on the bench? If you answered, “Yes, and Yes.” Then get a Halls Cough Drop with a “A pep talk in every drop!”

Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
