Hi all sometimes we need a different kind of healing, sometimes it's not a physical pain or desease sometimes it spiritual;;
(Bill if you feel this does not belong here you may put it where you think it does belong I will understand)


One day a while back, a man, his heart heavy with grief, was walking
in the woods. As he thought about his life this day, he knew many
things were not right. He thought about those who had lied about
him back when he had a job.

His thoughts turned to those who had stolen his things and cheated
him. He remembered family that had passed on. His mind turned to
the illness he had, that no one could cure. His very soul was
filled with anger, resentment, and frustration.

Standing there this day, searching for answers he could not find,
knowing all else had failed him, he knelt at the base of an old oak
tree to seek the one he knew would always be there. And with tears
in his eyes, he prayed:

"Lord- You have done wonderful things for me in this life. You have
told me to do many things for you, and I happily obeyed. Today, you
have told me to forgive. I am sad, Lord, because I cannot, I don't
know how. It is not fair Lord, I didn't deserve these wrongs that
were done against me and I shouldn't have to forgive. As perfect as
your way is Lord, this one thing I cannot do, for I don't know how
to forgive. My anger is so deep Lord, I fear I may not hear you,
but I pray you teach me to do the one thing I cannot do: Teach me
to forgive ."

As he knelt there in the quiet shade of that old oak tree, he felt
something fall onto his shoulder. He opened his eyes. Out of the
corner of one eye, he saw something red on his shirt. He could not
turn to see what it was because where the oak tree had been was a
large square piece of wood in the ground. He raised his head and
saw two feet held to the wood with a large spike through them.

He raised his head more, and tears came to his eyes as he saw Jesus
hanging on a cross. He saw spikes in His hands, a gash in His side,
a torn and battered body, deep thorns sunk into His head. Finally
he saw the suffering and pain on His precious face. As their eyes
met, the man's tears turned to sobbing, and Jesus began to speak.

"Have you ever told a lie?" He asked?

The man answered - "Yes, Lord."

"Have you ever been given too much change and kept it?"

The man answered - "Yes. Lord." And the man sobbed more and

"Have you ever taken something from work that wasn't
yours?" Jesus asked?

And the man answered, "Yes, Lord."

"Have you ever sworn, using my Father's name in vain?"

The man, crying now, answered - "Yes, Lord."

As Jesus asked many more times, "Have you ever"? The man's
crying became uncontrollable, for he could only answer - "Yes, Lord".

Then Jesus turned His head from one side to the other, and the man
felt something fall on his other shoulder He looked and saw that it
was the blood of Jesus. When he looked back up, his eyes met those
of Jesus, and there was a look of love the man had never seen or
known before.

Jesus said, "I didn't deserve this either, but I forgive

It may be hard to see how you're going to get through something, but
when you look back in life, you realize how true this statement is.

Read the following first line slowly and let it sink in.

If God brings you to it - He will bring you through it.

When Jesus died on the cross, he was thinking of you!

sunny My healing prayers to all in need of whether its physical, emotional or spiritual..Love Lynnxxxscorpio53 flower
