In the midst of pain comes healing….
Sitting in my chair, I was reading my devotion and Bible reading for the day and there were the exact words I needed to hear from Jesus. He does send healing and that is what I need to focus on. When I focus on the pain, I forget that His healing is in the future. Actually I know better than to focus on the pain, but I have not been doing a good job of that. I can focus on the task in front of me during the day, but in the evening I have a harder time doing that.
I need to read the words of Jesus and his promises and let his love wash over me and fill me with his blessings.
I don’t know if other people have trouble with this, but I tend to forget in the midst of the pain and yet I know what to do. Silly me.
Another thing I know that I often overlook and that is asking for prayer and for help. It makes all the difference in the world.
As I left my house today and pulled the car out of the garage I saw the lilac starting to bud and the new column in front of my house which was installed yesterday and I was overcome with the love of Jesus for me and the blessings I receive each and every day.
I will keep my focus on Jesus for healing and forget the pain.
Father, I come to you so much for relief from the pain and I forget your promises and your healing touch. Let me focus on the goal ahead of me and not on the pain. Amen.
