Allergic to ourselves

Bill Flick, a columnist for The Pantagraph, reported the case of a man in England who, for thirty five years, had been robbed of restful sleep because he sneezed several hundred times each day. Over the years various doctors had him tested for all known allergies, but with no luck. Finally they gave up and told him he was allergic to himself. Fortunately he later saw another doctor who didn’t bother about the usual allergies but just examined his eating habits and discovered he simply had a reaction to the porridge he’d been eating for breakfast since childhood.
Now some of us have come to the conclusion we are hopeless cases too – alergic to ourselves and unable to find peace. But we have a great physician of the soul, Jesus, who still says: ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…’ and a new life.
