As I sit here and listen to “Healer” by the amazing Ms. Kari Jobe I am so moved by how simple yet powerful the song is. Her voice is so beautiful but the words are where the real beauty of this song lies. It is something that every single person can relate to. We all have dealt with some sort of pain in our lives, whether it is physical or emotional. When that time comes, where healing is needed, it is so important to fully rely on God to get us through. It easier said than done, I know. I myself sometimes have a hard time letting go of my own issues and giving them to God. I forget that He is the ultimate healer and that through him I will find peace in my life.
I myself have been struggling with some emotional pain in my heart because of some hurtful things that someone said to me. Words can cut really deeply, and I have been harboring some anger and holding a bit of a grudge. This song has challenged me to let go and let God take over. It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone, then to give it to God. As much as I wanted to pretend like I wasn’t holding a grudge against this person for the hurt they caused me I can’t hide that from God. Holding on to this anger only makes it worse. Every time I sing the chorus I pull so much strength from it, and I am feeling a sense of peace towards that person that I could never get on my own –
“You hold my every moment
You calm my raging seas
You walk with me through fire
You heal all my disease
I trust in you, Lord I trust in you.”
No storm is too big for God, and even though we may not be able to see through the rain God will lead us and never leave our side. Whether you are dealing with physical pain, disease, anger, heartbreak, insecurities, doubt, whatever it is God wants to help you through. He is ALL we need.
“Lord, You are my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in You, and I am helped. Therefore, my heart greatly rejoices and with my song will I praise You. You, Lord, are my strength, and You are the saving strength of Your anointed.” – Psalm 28:7-8
With love in Him,
