Memory Monday – Week 15

I’m continuing on the theme of verses over healing. This verse is short, but is packed full of meaning. 
  • The verse acknowledges that the Lord is my God. We don’t serve several God’s. We just have one, and He is ours!
  • The verse acknowledges that we cry to the Lord for help. When we are in the middle of a trial we may get to the point where we don’t know what to pray, but God is there when we cry out to Him. This doesn’t say we cry to our husband, friend or family member, but we cry to our God. 
  • When we acknowledge Him as our Lord and Savior and cry to Him, He heals us. The healing does not come from clean eating, acupuncture, vitamins, or any other fertility(IUI/IVF) or medical treatment. It comes from the Lord our God, who is the great physician. He created our bodies and He is the same one that heals our bodies. Is it bad to do the things above or seek medical attention? No, of course not. But, we must remember that healing is not because of the physicians’ talent, but the Lord’s talent used through the physician. The healing power flows from the Lord as a gift He blesses the physician with. When we begin to place our trust or hope in anything or anyone other than Him is when it becomes an issue of idolatry. 

    Seek Him! He hears when you cry out and He will heal you!

      This is so true- so often we put all our trust in the physicians.. when in reality we should put all of our trust in God and thank the physicians for the work they are doing through Him!

      Thanks for the verse! I am really not a very religious person (lapsed Catholic after K-College Catholic education) and your blog is the perfect dose of spirituality to dip my toes back in 🙂

      Love this verse, as well as the last point you made–I’ve been ruminating over similar thoughts with our latest SA. All the amount of healthy foods, exercise and other health related things will make you stronger, but only GOD has the power to heal and restore. Peace, sister and have a happy week!

      I love this verse too. God has a way of speaking to so many in different situations. I know that leaning on Him helped us be more at peace through the struggle of infertility. I pray the same for you guys. He does hear us and His plan is in place for you. Prayers your way.

      “When we are in the middle of a trial we may get to the point where we don’t know what to pray, but God is there when we cry out to Him…” I LOVE this…. oh so true and exactly what I needed to hear. I am dealing with WHAT to pray right now. THANKS friend! :)))

      So true. That is what R and I were clinging to: even though we are pursuing treatment, the end result belongs to the Lord.

      Praying for you!
