Mind Over Body
The ChantWhen we got back to the bunkhouse, Ms. Terri was sitting on the floor waiting for us all.
“Hi you guys.” She looked at all of our mascara-streaked faces. “Are you okay?”
We all knew what she meant. I just laughed.
“That was fun. We had a great time. They did my favorite song.” I smiled.
“So I know I’m not your youth leader, but I want to know if God spoke to you tonight, and if he did what did you learn?”
They all shared their stories, until
“Well, I guess God showed me that I’m not sick anymore.” I started getting a little more confident. “Yeah. I’m not sick. I’m just NOT sick anymore.”
“Good. Keep telling yourself that. You’re only sick if you treat yourself like it.”
A few of the girls in our row started chanting “Annaleas not sick! Annaleas not sick!” The next thing I knew, our whole bunkhouse was chanting! I really wasn’t sick! I didn't have to be! And they all agreed.
