When we hear that someone we love is unwell, how many of you (like me!) tend to immediately pray for healing and just assume that God blesses that prayer?
I wanted to share another example, one about my own health crisis rather than one I merely witnessed.
When I was sick recently, the Holy Spirit showed me something new about healing. Turns out God was after relationship while I was after miraculous healing.
Life is the stage set for our intimate knowledge of God, a rich knowing of the Most High.
Quiet was never intended to be an occasional gift from God; it is a necessity. And when I am forced to wait for Him, I am forced to be quiet.
The work to believe may be the hardest work we’ll ever do, but the rewards for a job well done are beyond our imagining. Here's a story of work rewarded.
I am tempted to hate the person who pokes at my open wounds, wounds that are only open because I lack forgiveness in that place. Once I forgive, I'm free.
