Healing Isn’t Particularly Beautiful

“All who have been graciously, sovereignly, compassionately touched by the Savior and received the healing blood of his cross, we can see. Yes we all, like this guy from Bethsaida, have some blurriness of sight. But, don’t look away discouraged. See the Savior touch again. See him dip his finger in the great ocean of his blood and reapply. We are seeing better. We are loving more. This is due to the Savior’s powerful and gracious compassion.” — Erik Raymond

Jesus’ ministry here on earth in human form was short (around 33ish years, to be exact). But a major part of that ministry was physical healing. These miracles weren’t identical — He didn’t have “one perfect way” of healing a person. Just as we are all individuals, His miracles were exactly what that person needed at the exact time and in the exact way they needed it.

There was a blind man who Jesus led away from the crowds, spit in his eyes, laid hands on him, and then asked him if he could see. At first, his sight was blurry, so Jesus laid hands on him again — and his sight was completely restored!

“So, how much longer?”

“So, when will you be done with treatment?”

A friend on Instagram posted this FAQ she gets when talking to friends or family about her natural and alternative treatments she’s doing for her cancer. Her answer was so spot on, I needed to make a post in agreement and add my own two-cents.

“I told my husband, Mike, I don’t typically know what to reply. He said, “The answer is when you don’t have cancer.” Even then there will always be things I do, including IVC therapy (just less often), to keep my body functioning as properly as possible to keep cancer at bay.

So, the short answer is I won’t be “done with treatment” any time soon. My particular cancer journey isn’t a short one, but that’s ok because Mike and I are trying to make lifestyle & treatment choices for my long term health for a longer term life!” — Jenny, @ShrinkTheMutant

And that’s the BIG picture right there. Making lifestyle and treatment choices for long-term health, for a longer-term life. I LOVE that. So much truth in that statement that resonated with my spirit.

Fighting with Figs

“Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the LORD God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal youI will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria…Then Isaiah said, “Bring a lump of pressed figs.” So they brought it and applied it to his infected skin, and he recovered.” – 2 Kings 20:4-7

 

King Hezekiah was sick. He was going to die. He had an enemy army coming to capture his city, and he was out of options. But through the fear, pain, and anguish, he faithfully turned to God.

And God not only told Hezekiah He was going to heal him, but He also gave the king the tools to do so — in this particular case, using figs to heal whatever the wound was that Hezekiah had, which could definitely be cancer since figs are very high in cancer-fighting properties!

I find myself once again searching for options better than what my current surgical oncologist is pressing to do; preventative, invasive reconstructive surgery followed by multiple rounds of radiation. Because I’m “young” and still have my “whole life to live”…as if there would be much quality of life after losing yet another half of my tongue, enduring that hellish surgery for the second time (and this time, so much worse), and recovering mentality, physically, spiritually…

No, thank you.
