HOPE & HEALING - Introduction
BlogFam, if you have been following this blog for the last few months or even for the last year, there is one thing that you know about this space... I like to keep it real. And this NEW series will be no different. I know that I have not written as often as I have previously committed to doing so and I ask that you would forgive me. At the same time, I am praying for a renewed energy around my blog such that our BlogFam in this space will continue to be inspired moving forward. I look forward to hearing from you!
HOPE & HEALING.
BlogFam, I do not profess to have the gift of healing but I do know that my words have power. Your words have power. GOD'S WORD IS POWER! And recently, one of my best friends has experienced a traumatic occurrence in their body and everyday for the last week or so, I have been reading the same Scripture over and over. I actually heard this text preached the day after I received the news about my friend and it has been a source of HOPE as I believe God for their HEALING. And now, I feel compelled to share my reflections with you in this space.
I am praying for any one of you who need to experience God's healing power in your life or in the life of someone you love. I am praying that this series will give you HOPE as you believe God for your own healing or for the healing of another.
As usual, in the coming days, we will walk through this passage verse by verse, but today, I invite you to read the passage in its entirety as an introduction to our NEW series and as an inspiration for your situation.
Luke 8:41-42, 49-56 NIV
Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him.
While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the
synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
BlogFam, GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Now, Arise and Walk in the Hope of Your Healing!!!
