Do you want to be healed?

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.”  Ecc 9:10

Listen for the whatever, and then watch the how fall into place.  Get involved.  Get into the practice of putting thoughts into action.

Read what happened to the man who had been paralyzed for thirty-eight years in John 5:1-15.  Do you want to be healed?  Do you want to be healed?  It’s going to involve looking closely at a lot of things you’ve taken for granted.  When you’re no longer paralyzed, you’ll have to change some old routines.

Take a look at your habits.  Many of them interfere with some healthy self-nurturing and cause shame.  Some of the oddest things are self-destructive, and they usually involve “killing time.”  List your three most unsavory habits.  What do you accomplishment by them?

Some disruptive habits are very subtle:  not enough time for solitude and meditation, or to exercise, always helping others at your own expense of time and money, and associating with people who belittle your dreams.  Identify three of your chimeres.  What do you get from these forms of self-sabotage?  Be truthful and specific.

There is an evidence of the Great Mystery that Carl Jung called ‘synchronicity’.  It can be defined as a fortuitous intermeshing of events.  We christen it ‘Divine Coincidence’.  It is Spirit-led intuition, acting and reacting in love.  Think of at least one time when you’ve experienced the impossible.  You might have even called it a ‘miracle’.

God knows the sky’s the limit.

Possibility is far more frightening than impossibility, and freedom is far more frightening than slavery.  Remember how God protected the tender, fearful hearts of the released slaves on their exodus.  Have you ever asked YHWH to protect and guide your heart?

“Be on guard.  Stand true to what you believe.  Be courageous.  Be strong.  And everything you do must be done with love.”  1 Cor 16:13-14
