Healing and Refreshment...

I've been feeling well these last few days.  Really well.  For the first time in a really long time.

Those of you who know even a little of my story know this to be a true blessing.  I am so thankful for it.  I'm almost afraid to tell of this priceless gift lest it evaporate before my eyes.

But right now I feel really well.

Last night I was reading my favorite Bible passage, basking in the comfort of the words, know that my Lord is trustworthy and true:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
   and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
   and He will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6.
For the what felt like the first time ever, I kept reading:

Be not wise in your own eyes;
   fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh
   and refreshment to your bones
.
Proverbs 3:7-8

Could this really be the first time I read this passage?  Healing and refreshment.  I kept looking:

...be attentive to my words;
   incline your ear to my sayings.
  Let them not escape from your sight;
   keep them within your heart.
For they are life to those who find them,
   and healing to all their flesh.
Keep your heart with all vigilance,
   for from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:20-23

Be humble, fear the Lord, turn from evil, keep my heart... pondering healing and refreshment with these revealed treasures in mind this week...

Be well, dear ones!

So happy to hear that you are feeling good. Don't you wish you could just hold on to these moments and enjoy them for a long time? I've been doing a word study on the name Jehovah Rapha - the God who heals. It's really been interesting. My prayers are with you, my friend.
