There was a time when I felt the walls closing in on me. I needed to help a family member who was going through incredible pain and heartache. I was overwhelmed. I felt helpless and incapable of doing what needed to be done. I knew this person needed great healing and comfort but how could I possibly do it? I didn’t have the skills, the knowledge, the wisdom to even begin.
As I was praying, begging for help, I felt the following words cross my mind, “Monica, I am the great physician. Healing _________ is my job not yours. In time, I will heal him. For now, you can do what I know you know how to do. Teach him about me. Teach him where to find me and I will do the rest.”
This experience was an incredible relief to me. I was so humbled to know that God heard my prayers and to be reminded that he was the healer, not me. Thank goodness. What comfort those words gave to my weak soul.
God is real. He does hear our prayers. This I know.
