Spiritual Healing of the Body

Updated on March 31, 2014

The Process

This healing thing is a process
that takes place over a period of time;

I've learned that in order to heal the body the journey must first begin in the mind.

I was not usually eager to step
into the path that is necessary.

Before facing my emotional baggage,
I enter my own garden of Gethsemane.

Issues stemming from my childhood
enveloped me in deep-rooted, binding fears.

Due to medical traumas experienced,
I used to deny illness and run scared.

I determined if anything serious happened I would not let anybody know.

I would keep it to myself and find some distant place to go.

At times, with all I'd been through,
I'd become anxious about what I feel.
My body has suffered so much,
I didn't understand and didn't want to deal.

But in the year 2000,
God lead me through the painful and challenging task
Of enduring medical procedures,
I could hardly wait until that trial had passed.

No more hiding, it was confrontation time,
God wanted me to be my best.
He is forever teaching me new life lessons
through the passing of each test.

I continue healing in this process
and am at peace to know He's there;
Instead of shutting down from fear,
I now rest in His word, love, and care.

I AM doing the work and through strength in Christ,
I AM victorious and have overcome.
I continue to press forward until
the Father says, "My daughter, a job well done."
