Master Healer is my Lord

The year had been a really rough one. Divorce, that I never dreamed would happen, did. I ended up doing what secular counselors would say was terribly unwise.

After prayer, I felt that the Lord was leading me into short term missions, which meant moving away from my good friends and church home, leaving the job I had worked at almost 10 years and going to Texas, where I didn’t know a soul. I began Youth With A Mission, Discipleship Training School and a most incredible time of healing in the Lord.

There I was with a group of people who were, for the most part, about 10 years younger than I was. We were having a meeting at the house of the married leaders of our group. It was a wonderful time of seeking the Lord and prayer. It was my turn in the “hot seat”. As various members of the group laid hands on me, I closed my eyes.

While my eyes were closed, I saw a picture of a heart,not the anatomical one but a heart shaped like a Valentine. There was a bench seat on top of the heart and Jesus was taking a seat there, the heart had a jagged crack running diagonally across the whole “Valentine”. As they prayed I realized it was my heart. I felt impressed that if I kept Jesus enthroned in my heart that I would be healed totally. As Jesus sat down, the brokenness disappeared from top to bottom.

Psalms 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

In the situation my heart was broken and the Lord moved in. He put my broken pieces back together better than they had been in the first place.

He was enthroned in my heart and did His most incredible work in me during the ensuing weeks and month.

Psalm 22:3
Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel.

Psalm 29:10
The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.

Through this trauma, I came to know the reality of these scriptures and God’s most incredible faithfulness.I have assurance that He will be there for you also, if you just let Him!

By the way, that was in 1983. I Met a wonderful man at Youth With a Mission and we have been married for over 24 years now. The Lord restored the years of the locust and canker worm in a most beautiful way!

This is a great article that should help bring healing to many. I do have a couple little "picky" things. I would use a comma after mission, and would eliminate the second "that", and use a comma after "heart" Just would make a little smoother read, I think, (but what do I know?) :)

HE has graciously given me more than double the locust and canker worm years in my marriage with a precious gift of God, my hubby, Mick! Thanks for your encouragement! Marijo

Lovely disclosure Marijo… and to point to Jesus as the healer of all… what a testimony. I wouldn't want to give up my years of the locust just because I can compare to here and now, and recognize the outrageously gracious touch of God. Thanks for sharing openly. Love, Lesley-Anne
