  1. I once was told to take off the supermom cape and put it in a drawer. I needed help but was (and still am) very much a control freak. It was a lesson to be learned and I always remembered that day when I get overwhelmed with what I think I need to do by myself. It is hard for me to accept limitations and ask for help but I now see it as a gift I can give by asking for help and accepting it. The older I get the more I find myself at the receiving end of being unable to do things I have always taken for granted. Thank you for the reminder that it is ok to humble ourselves and be human.

  2. How wonderful to gain spiritual truths through physical injury! No wasted molecules in God’s economy! Thank you for sharing. Now if I could retain the lesson & not have to keep repeating the course as my body ages! LOL!

    • You are not the only one taking this course over and over. But, being able to look back on life experiences and growing from/through them is a blessing and a healing in itself. Thank you, Lucretia, for reminding us of this lesson through sharing your story.

    • Hi Ruth!
      “No wasted molecules in God’s economy!” I LOVE that!!
      I am glad to know that my story resonates with you. We live in a tough world; the need for healing is inevitable. But I pray that we don’t resist what healing requires of us and wants to offer us.

      Thank you for reading.

  3. Oh, sister. Your words hit deep.

    ” As a finite being, communing with His infinitely reparative nature is necessary so I can fully lean into the hope of wholeness.”

    Take care of that knee and take it easy. So much love for you.

  4. What a wonderful message for today.

    It can be difficult to ask for help but that’s exactly what God wants us to do. Every day we are to take our petitions to Him. He already knows what we need but we still have to ask. When we ask, believing, He will take care of us. His ways are not like what we may think. His timing is precise. He does not come to our rescue early but He is never too late.

    Our lack, weakness, limitations and inabilities cannot stop Him. Faith in our Creator is our driving source of power.

    Praying for guidance from the Holy Spirit is the key to strengthen your soul. Allowing safe people to listen to your story is therapeutic. God chooses how to provide your healing. You have the benefit of total reliance on your outcome !

    Thank you Lord for teaching me to wait on Your timing.

    Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching me the truth and for correcting me when I am heading down the wrong path,

    Glory to the name of Jesus !

    • Hi Brenda.

  5. Lucretia,

    Your story resonates to me especially your statement that one part of the body is healed, the whole body benefits.

    I suffered from shoulder impingement syndrome for a year plus, movement is restricted even caused insomnia and lost weight. Like David, i cried out to God, how long Lord? Healing needs time and always is His timing. Once healed, the whole body benefits.

    Thank you for your story, it is therapeutic.

  6. Lucretia,

    God allows trials or injuries in our lives to grow us emotionally, spiritually & physically. It is during those times that we tend to call & depend on Jehovah Rapha more & more. We learn to trust that He knows best for our lives. My aging dad needed healing from geriatric psych issues. I was definitely out of my comfort zone with that. After 1 month of hospitalization God healed my dad. He grew my faith & trust muscles immensely. Now when a trial hits I don’t panic. I know that God is in control & will make a way in the desert.

    Blessings 🙂

  7. Beth.
    I am glad to know that my story resonated with you. Thank you for reading and commenting. Yes, I agree that when we spend time with Jehovah Rapha, we are healed in all kinds of ways. We grow significantly from allowing healing to have its way in our lives.

    Let’s continue to grow.

    Shalom
    Lucretia
