Re: miracle healing TO NutMeig Ima

First, Dear NutMeig -

Welcome to Psycho Babble Faith!

How many times have I asked myself, others & God Himself the very question you've asked!

Healing is such a great mystery. Yes, it seems that Jesus did heal everyone who asked Him to (& some who didn't ask). But, everyone who asked, was healed; & yes, He often told them it was attributable to their faith.

But faith is a gift - it's not something we can drum up with will power or concentration. God gives us the very faith we need to believe in Him, & as we exercise that faith, it grows.

I've known people who were miraculously healed. I've known those who were healed through the use of medicines (both natural & chemical). I've known others, even those with "great faith" who were left in their illness - some of whom even died.

I suffered with severe bulimia for 21 years - everyone else had given up on my ever getting better. But God healed me. I searched for that healing for most of those two decades, & tried many things to bring about healing. It seems, that when I was ready, when I was prepared to face the "root" of it, & for reasons & timing which only God Himself knows, I was completely & miraculously healed (that was three years ago). I still cope with depression - that hasn't been healed - & there are other areas in my life which still need healing (I don't believe we're ever completely healed this side of heaven).

I love everything that you, Ima wrote, & I'm in agreement with you on all of it.

The bottom line is to continue to trust God with all parts of our lives, trusting that He knows what is absolutely the best for us each step of the way. And, if you know Jesus as Savior, you have the promise of a perfect body one day! (maybe because it falls apart we will appreciate it more!)

Again, welcome to both of you - I hope to hear more from you!

Shalom, Dena
