Heart Strings

Do we know He is God?

     Today a hug would hurt.  I sit here wondering about healing.  I hear that if I have enough faith I would be healed. I wonder if I just don’t have enough faith to be healed.  I hear others say that in life some people suffer because they need to learn something.  I feel that if God wanted me to learn something He would tell me instead of making me suffer. The enemy is the one who destroys.God gives life. ( John 10:10) I wonder is faith really what is missing?  If so that hurts.  I have been following the Lord toward wholeness a long time.  Today what I need is a reminder of His promises.  I need to think less about what I can do to have more faith and believe in the One I have faith in.

      I have had miraculous healing in my life before.  I wonder what I did then to be healed.  Nothing.  I just trusted I couldn’t do it and God could.  So today I trust God can and will heal my brokenness.  Heal my heart with layers of hurt upon it.  Heal my body that hurts every day and is tired every moment. Heal my mind where it is set on the wrong things.  I find comfort in His Word…..this small word….”still ” I have heard all week:.

Be still and know I am God Psalm 46:10……….This intrigued me so I investigated that word “still”. Here is what I found it means:
