‘ you have been healed by His wounds. For you were like sheep going astray, but you have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭24-25‬ HCSB)

Hello, Healing-child,
The name heals:
Jesus.
Jesus.
Jesus.
The Shepherd and Guardian of your soul heals you.
We all need healing, don’t we?
Spiritual.
Physical.
Mental.
Emotional.
Relational.
I was talking yesterday to a friend, Mr Lowe. A month ago today, he and his family were carrying on like normal, with no clue what the next few days would bring. They were very different from today … The Great Physician was preparing them for a journey through the pit of the unknown that would change them all.
In the span of a few hours he and his sons went from “typical – normal – ordinary day” to looking at their wife and mom unconscious,
unresponsive,
and on a ventilator … life-support.
The Almighty poured miraculous healing to her body. She visited with us at the office yesterday.
She is a walking miracle.
The God of the Universe had other kinds of healing in mind for her man and her sons during the early days of being held at bay, in the unknown at her bedside.
Grace.
Grace that brought release,
Grace that brought the fullness of the Savior near,
Grace that took them beyond their ‘self-ness’, uncommon Grace.
The Healer came to them during those dark days, as raindrops beating gently on a tin-barn. In the steady-on rhythm of heartbeat thunder, a pattering of grace fell, changing them … the Lowe family’s anthem is what they know to be true:
“When faith and hope were the only things we had left, it was all we needed”.
The Guardian of your Soul is near.
In the most terrible ordeal in Gethsemane, and then on to the cross, total surrender came in the darkness of love.
Boundless.
Immeasurable.
Unfathomable love …
through the most atrocious suffering so that He could, through purest grace, birth a new creation in you and me.
Mmmmm.
All-consuming: That’s how His grace flows.
