NYQUIL SHIVERS

NYQUIL SHIVERS

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

I don't get the shivers and take Nyquil,
I see the Nyquil and get the shivers.

Nyquil bothers me in a substantial way, dear Reader.
The mediciny, syruppy texture, smell, and taste gives me the shivers even in the recording of it.
Like a child's body responding emphatically and resistantly to a bad case of the spinach set before him,
My whole body emphatically says "No" to Nyquil.
-----
What brought on this vehement charge, I have no idea.
I have no recollection of a forced inducement in childhood or a suppressed memory requiring "Nyquil therapy."
I just don't like Nyquil.
End of story.

Portions of the word of God can give us the "Nyquil shivers."
We can find ourselves, almost unconsciously, steering away from therapeutic, truthful soul remedies out of a simple dislike or distaste for them.
We can "cross the aisle" and be quick to turn ourselves away from truths which lead us into conviction and conscience, and reroute our minds by turning toward the truths which make us feel more comfortable.
We can tune our minds out of our own sinful realities and hone in on someone else's.
But I feel, dear Reader, that a worthy exercise lies in a concrete understanding of what truths about ourselves might be inducing and producing the "Nyquil shivers."
Deep revelations exist in this undertaking;
Don't refuse it.
Consider, record, rehearse, reread every passage that gives you the "Nyquil shivers."
They are a message about "you" and to "you" from the Father.
The remedial effects to be discovered and recovered in His powerful and grace-filled word are simply one truth away.
Try the medicine.
