The poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning was an invalid; she couldn’t even sit up in bed. But then, she met Robert Browning, another famous poet, and they fell madly in love.
On the first visit from Robert Browning, Elizabeth sat up. She hadn’t done that before. His love for her made her able to do something she couldn’t do before. On another visit from Mr. Browning, Elizabeth got up and walked. Before long, the couple married and settled on the coast of Italy, where she was completely restored to health.
The amazing love of Robert Browning for Elizabeth Barrett got her out of bed. She sat up, walked, and was never an invalid again! She met someone who cared for her; someone who loved her out of her problem.
That’s what Jesus does. He loves us and lifts us out of our infirmities. He gives us health and joy and true love.
