In this broken world, the need for healing is abundantly clear. I believe the majority of people, myself included need healing in some shape or form, whether we are willing to admit it or not. Even if the only thing that we need healing from is “the disease of self’ as the DC Talk song In The Light refers to the sin nature; we still all need healing. The hurts of this fallen world seem so overwhelming that it is hard to know what to do. It is very comforting to know that I can pray and talk to God of the universe who loves each one of us more than I can fathom. Another beautiful thing is that He can use each of us to encourage and build each other up. There is healing in a kind word, or hug, or a listening ear. God, please open my eyes to those around me that could use a word or encouragement today.
