Jehovah Rapha...Our Healer

I write with a heart full of blessings beyond measure as I enjoy my final night at She Speaks. I can't even to begin to articulate the work God has done during my time here this short weekend and I am committing so much to prayer in the days and weeks to follow. It is my prayer that the work He is doing in and through me may be a blessing in some way to each and every one of you ladies that He has set before my path because of our shared experience of loss.

The word I have to share with you tonight comes from the precious quiet time I have been able to enjoy with the Lord in the prayer room here at the conference...

Jehovah Rapha ~ Our God Who Heals

The God of the universe is called by many names in Scripture. I will focus on just this one, Jehovah Rapha, our Healer. Ladies, we all need healing, don't we? I was overwhelmed with the Scripture that God brought to me tonight as I spent some quiet time with Him in the prayer room. Psalm 30, verses one and two cry out:

I will exalt you, O Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
Psalm 30:1-2

He healed me....first, by lifting me out of the depths and the pit of sin I was in, saving my soul. He healed me in that ultrasound room when the doctor said, "Your baby is going to die." He healed me in that hospital room when I was too scared to even look at my dying child, giving me a peace I couldn't possibly understand and a strength to hold her every precious minute of her life. He healed me those countless nights I laid curled up in a ball on my living room chair, clinging to Chloe's blankie. He healed me one year ago when I realized the dream of another pregnancy that quickly shifted to a nightmare of loss yet again. He healed me just a few short months later when in that same ultrasound room where I met Chloe, the sonographer had to utter these words, "Teske, I'm so sorry...I don't see a heartbeat." He heals me now, bringing me a joy in the shadow of loss that my human heart cannot comprehend. Our God, our Healer, desires to meet us precisely where we are in life. Amen!

Have you embraced His healing touch? It is my prayer that His healing bring you a comfort and a peace so profound that you can only attribute it to our Jehovah Rapha...Our God Who Heals.
