Heal – Five Minute Friday

Today’s prompt is heal. Let’s see where this takes me . . . START

heal

Heal. An active word that we really have little to no control over. To heal generally is assumed to mean that there is a wound that is open and needs to have the body’s systems take over and cover it and get rid of or keep out an infection. That is not something we can control. Much as we might wish we could.

When someone is injured they need to heal. Sometimes that take a whole lot more than our body can do by itself. Sometimes, to heal requires a deeper or different kind of would to be inflicted first. I am thinking about surgery here. Sometimes to heal an injury surgery needs to be done. Once that is done, then the injury can actually begin to heal. Until then, though, the body cannot heal that.

Our emotions have the same sort of need. When we have an emotional wound, it cannot be healed without help. That help, most often, comes from above. God alone can heal what humans have inflicted. God works through other humans sometimes to help in that healing but looking to God will do the most to assist in the healing.

Heal.

Time is required. Patience is required. Often, forgiveness is required. Without those, healing may never occur. Forgiveness is the hardest. When a major injury has occurred, by accident or on purpose, it can be hard to forgive. But without that forgiveness, we remain injured even if the physical wounds have healed. Forgiveness allows the remainder of the healing to happen.

Heal.

God alone give the final healing.

Rambling but maybe when I come back and read it later it won’t be a disjointed as it seems right now. May each of you find healing for whatever afflicts you now. Please visit the linkup to read what other wrote regarding the word heal.

    I appreciate the reminder that God may use various means to heal, including our fellow humans, but ultimately HE alone is our healer and we must cooperate with HIM in the healing process. Visiting from FMF. Blessings.

    These words are so true : Time is required. Patience is required. Often, forgiveness is required. Without those, healing may never occur.

    I love your statement about how God alone can heal what humans have inflicted. So true. Only HE can truly heal the brokenhearted. I also love how you mentioned how He can use humans to help with His healing. So true.
