Healing The Heart by Tammy Vice

“As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.”
‭‭John‬ ‭9‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I am so grateful for this walk God has given me with Morgan. Through it, He is continuing to help me grow in my relationship with Him each day. He is forever teaching me what I thought I knew, But Didn’t. 

Recently, our pastor presented a message about serious faith, like that of the centurion in Luke chapter seven. He sent his request to Jesus, “I’m not worthy to come to you or for you to come under my roof, but JUST SAY THE WORD and my servant will be healed.” His faith even Amazed Jesus. The centurion returned home to see his servant healed.

This brings me to a situation I’ve faced on more than a one occasion. Someone, who is very well intended, tells me if I had enough faith, my child would be healed. A while back, when I brought this up to my pastor, he said “Well, bless their heart.”  ❤

I don’t say this to offend anyone. It’s something I’ve had to reconcile with myself, my understanding of faith and trust. I remember in my early years of parenting, someone telling me an issue they were facing with their child. I flippantly said “I just pray.” Now I realize how that may have come across, that maybe I thought they weren’t praying enough. Wow, as believers, we really have to be thoughtful about our words.

In Hebrews chapter eleven, we are told “without faith, it is impossible to please God”. I know and believe the importance of faith. God’s ways and thoughts are higher than ours, so I trust He is always working in ways I cannot see. It’s not just about Morgan, or me. It’s about a plan that’s So Much Bigger than any one of us. And yet, it’s about His Love for each and every one of us.

I do believe in miracles, BIG and small. Over the years, I’ve prayed for others and myself. I’ve felt the prayers of family and friends. I’ve seen the physical results of prayer first hand. I have no doubt when it’s God’s will to heal, He does.

I’ve prayed countless times for hard things to be removed. Still do. The truth is, no matter how fervent our faith is, sometimes we don’t get the physical results we long to see here. We’re told Jesus prayed for a cup to pass, but trusted His Father’s will. What if He didn’t? What if He hadn’t gone to that cross? Where would we be? Jesus knew His Father’s Love for Him. I know God’s perfect love for me. So therefore, I TRUST His will for me.

There was a time when my number one prayer was physical healing for Morgan. I still pray against the things she struggles with, but now I understand, it’s our hearts that need healing the most.

Until Next Time,

Know The Hope!
