Clean

I have experienced a healing, in the past few weeks, that cannot be explained by anything short, of the work, God is doing in my life. I have experienced pain on a daily basis; the pain is due to the abuse that happened to me as a child and teenager. Pain I thought would never go away, something I would always live and try to be content with.  It had become so common each and everyday, that I quit mentioning it to anyone. The pain occurs various times a day, and from various activities. My feeling was always, “What’s the point, no one can do anything about it anyway.”

Over the past two weeks, in therapy, my therapist and I have been working together and purposefully praying for the answers to this chronic pain, as well as the intense, rapid occurring, migraine headaches. I have migraines, but these particular ones are so abrupt, it takes me out immediately. Within seconds it would hit and I would be trying to find a place to lay down.

I believe in the power of prayer. Believing in God is to believe that He answers prayer.  To believe in Him means that we also trust in Him and this trust in His answer is always better than what we think or might expect and in His timing is frequently different from ours.  Never take the silence of God as God ignoring you.  Often God waits to answer our prayers for His perfect timing and in many ways His answers are better than what we had originally asked for.

God has never promised to heal everyone in this life nor has He promised to answer every prayer to what we ask for.  God’s will is supremely higher than what we know because God’s will is always better for us than the will we have for our own lives.  Trust God, believe in Him, wait patiently on Him and He will answer your prayers.

When we pray for the things I mentioned above, we are told in the bible to pray in Jesus’ name, with the authority He has given to us. Jesus gave all believers the authority, in His name, to heal. When we pray in Jesus’ name, we have authority over sickness, and therefore we can exercise our authority to bring about healing in another person’s life! Matthew 10:8 says, Heal the sick, bring the dead back to life, heal those who suffer from dreaded skin diseases, and drive out demons. You have received without paying, so give without being paid.

I realize that it requires great faith and trust in God, believing that His will be done. That even if He doesn’t answer when or how I want, my hope is in Him alone! I’m especially grateful for a therapist who exhibits this great faith and trust in God; for answers, direction, and guidance in regards to my therapy.

God has answered our prayers and has used my therapist to bring healing. I have not had any of the pain, I mentioned above, for two weeks. The quick forming migraines have stopped as well. It is amazing and mind-blowing at the same time! I cried, tears of joy, just thinking about waking up without pain. God is intentional, loving and compassionate; He cares about each and every part of me. He is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. AMAZING!!

I recently heard the song Clean, by Natalie Grant. Actually, it was the day after my therapy session, in which this healing took place. I was stepping out of the shower and the DJ on the radio was introducing this new song…click the song title for the video.

Clean

I see shattered
You see whole
I see broken
But You see beautiful
And You’re helping me to believe
You’re restoring me piece by piece

There’s nothing too dirty
that You can’t make worthy
You wash me in mercy
I am clean

What was dead now lives again
My heart’s beating, beating inside my chest
Oh I’m coming alive with joy and destiny
Cause You’re restoring me piece by piece

There’s nothing too dirty
that You can’t make worthy
You wash me in mercy
I am clean, oh yeah

Washed in the blood of Your sacrifice
Your blood flowed red and made me white
My dirty rags are purified
I am clean
I’m clean, ohhh I’m
I’m clean, oh I’m clean, I’m clean

Oh You made me
You wash me
Clean
Oh You made me clean
