Let the Healing Begin!

Sam is home from the hospital. Let the healing begin.

Anyone who has had surgery knows that physical healing takes time. The healing can be painful and the waiting can be irksome. But they are necessary parts of recovery.

Similarly, anyone who has experienced an emotional blow knows that the road to recovery travels through a healing period. And it can seem like a long and winding road at times. We want to hurry the process, take shortcuts, cut corners. But true healing follows a predetermined path through denial, bargaining, anger, depression, and acceptance before we can successfully climb out of the pit of despair.

If you are still struggling with depression over an emotional blow you experienced long ago, it's possible you missed a step in your path to healing. Perhaps you need to go back and complete the process. Talk with a Christian counselor, join a support group, and take it to the Lord in prayer.

Help is out there. Let the healing begin!
