Healing for our Bones

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. Proverbs 15:30

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Bodies have “bones.” Each of us has a framework upon which our muscles, nerves, and circulatory systems rely for support. The bones of our bodies are necessary for stability.

Buildings have “bones.” Each of our facilities has a framework upon which the walls are attached and the decorations beautifully adorn. The bones of the building are necessary for stability.

Businesses have “bones.” Each successful business has mission and vision upon which the framework of the business is founded. The bones of the business are necessary for stability.

What are things that strengthen bones? The writer of Proverbs informs us that “good news gives health to the bones,” and gracious words are “sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” Words have the power to bring healing to our bones…good news and gracious words bring health and healing.  As we invest our lives in healing, health, and healthcare, may we continue to speak graciously and to speak words of good news and positivity. May our bones be nourished and may our bones be glad today.

Prayer: O God, You created us with bones for our framework. Truly we are amazingly constructed. We thank you for our supports and framework of our bodies, our buildings, and our business. We pray for health and healing for our bones. Align any bones that are in need of repair and healing today. May we speak with gracious words and good news for the health of our bones. Amen.
