Asking for Healing

"If you listen carefully to the Lord, your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am Lord, who heals you". Exodus 15:26

Many of us suffer from one disease or another and we often question- "Why Me"?, "Why God"?   Why have you forsaken me?  Why not ask the question- "What is it you want me to do"?  "What are you asking of me"?  

After reading the scripture from Exodus, I thought about those last few words- "for I am Lord, who heals you".   We all want to be healed from our diseases and a friend once told me that our healing may not necessarily be the healing we are looking for, maybe our healing is within a relationship- a family member, a friend, an enemy, or even with God.  When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I didn't get mad at God, I asked what is it you are trying to tell me.  As I listened for the answer, I heard him say... Relax, take time for yourself, you are giving too much of yourself to others.  Help others who are in your situation.  Come back to ME and you shall be healed!
