Many of us look for healing throughout our lives. It could be physical, mental, or spiritual healing we seek. Often times, as I have found, these are all connected. The food we feed our bodies does not just affect us physically. Our mental and spiritual health are also impacted. And what we feed our souls and mind also impacts our physical health.
I searched a long time for physical healing and was so frustrated when I could not find it. No matter how perfect my diet was I could not achieve it.
The problem, I discovered, is that I was missing the big picture. When our stress levels are through the roof there is no way we can heal physically. When our mental health is not in check, and we struggle with anxiety and worry, and don’t get enough sleep or take the time to rest because we are in a vicious cycle, our bodies cannot heal. And when we place our trust in ourselves instead of God, we drown.
I believe without a doubt that the Lord want’s healing for you. It hurts him to see his children suffer. But He doesn’t just want to heal us physically. He want’s to heal us completely. Fully. Mind, body, and soul. And most of all want’s your heart.
It doesn’t happen overnight. In fact we will search for all sorts of healing throughout our lives. I don’t think we can ever get enough of it. And His way may look different that yours. But we can simply start my inviting Him into the process and taking care of the bodies, minds, and souls gifted to us.
And as we do, the “knots” in our lives will come undone.
Unknotted was inspired by the Our Lady Undoer of Knots devotion. Ask for her powerful intercession.
“The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied by the obedience of Mary; what the virgin Eve bound by her unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosened by her faith.”St. Irenaeus
