My Everyday Healing

If you missed it, I’ve started a new link-up called Everyday Testimony (read more here). I hope you’ll join me every Friday in cultivating thankfulness in your life!

Add your link at the bottom!

runningThe morning started in the usual way. I made my way down our country road to begin jogging. As I broke into a run, I noticed my right knee giving me trouble. After fewer than thirty seconds of running, I had to stop and walk because it was hurting so much.

What happened? I stretched before I started, I thought to myself. I tried several times to continue running, but each time I could only go a short distance before I had to return to walking.

Suddenly, this mighty man of God who believes and trusts the Father for everything (hey, I want this to be true) had a thought. I can pray and ask God to touch my knee!

So I did. I prayed for strength and healing in the knee then tried to test it out. I made it about as far as I had been making it before I had to stop again.

I prayed again. I made it a little further.

I prayed again. This time it felt like it was worse!

I had prayed three or four times and thought it probably wasn’t going to happen today. It’s not a big deal, I thought. I can still walk and it will probably be better tomorrow.

As I’m reasoning with myself, I feel a gentle nudge from Holy Spirit, “try one more time.” I prayed the same prayer. I didn’t get louder. I didn’t add any special words. I’m pretty sure I had less faith instead of more at that point, but the moment of truth came. I had to try running again.

To my amazement, I took off and no pain! I was so excited and thankful for my miracle!

It was then God reminded me of something that was made so real because of this situation. I thought about how because of my knee my entire body was in pain. Besides that, functionality suffered. I desired to run, but I couldn’t because of the pain.

Sometimes we rush past members of the Body of Christ because we don’t like to face the pain. Sometimes we try to push our own pain away. Their pain or your pain affects the entire Body.

Believing for your miracle or someone else’s is not just “a nice thing to do.” Every personal breakthrough is a corporate breakthrough.

And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. –1 Peter 2:4-5

I’m thankful for healing in my body. I’m thankful and more motivated than ever to believe with others in my own local church body. God’s faithfulness is limitless and beautiful.

What do you think? What are you thankful for this week?
