Look upstream

God supplies your health.

It was a striking sight: a clear, cold stream suddenly emerging out of an otherwise dry hillside. According to some locals, this spring at the base of Mt. Shasta in northern California is the source of the Sacramento River. Right at this source, right as it comes out of the ground, the spring isn't muddied, polluted, changed, or stopped, because fresh water is constantly renewing it.

To me, this is like the relation of God to each one of us. God's children, made in the image and likeness of their creator, are always right with their source. God's children aren't subject to contaminants such as fear, pain, or inharmony, because the pure life and love and perfect goodness of God is their source of being. The Bible poses the rhetorical question "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?" (James 3:11)
