Our Healing

“And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds, you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (New American Standard Bible)

My mother tells a story of when I was a little girl and she took me to the doctor. He told me he was going to give me a shot to make me feel better. One look at that needle and I leaped off the exam table, running away down the hall. No one could catch me and administer that shot, but that didn’t stop the doctor from charging my mother for the medication he had not administered.

The cross reminds me of that experience. Jesus suffered, taking on ALL of our sin. According to the word, we are healed by His wounds. But instead of us having to pay for that healing, Christ paid it for us through His death. Our healing was provided for us over 2000 years ago. All we have to do is accept it. That’s it. Nothing more. There’s no payment plan, no checks to write. All we have to do is say, “Yes, Lord. Thank you.”

This story also reminds me that Paul wrote, “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” (1 Cor. 13:11 New Living Translation) I am no longer a scared child. I no longer run from healing. I run TO healing! Praise God, our healing is here!

Thank you, Jesus, for providing our healing on Calvary. We fully accept your gift of grace. There is no one who is as good as you are! We praise you and lift your holy name in thanksgiving for all you have done and continue to do for us!

Maya Angelou once said, "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them." This statement resonates with me. My past experiences have made me a stronger person eager to use my story to inspire and help others see that regardless of who they are or where they have been, there is always hope and to know the ability to rise above circumstances lies within. Each day, I strive to walk in faith and hope surrounded by my family and friends' love and encouragement. I am blessed to have a life full of experiences, some good, some bad, and my ambition is to use those experiences to enrich those around me. I am a local business owner and church Executive Assistant in Highland, Arkansas. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and student. My passion is to help those in need who are ready and willing to do the necessary work it takes to help themselves. Assisting individuals who have experienced trauma, loss, stress, grief, and various life changes are the drive behind attending Southwestern Assemblies of God University to obtain my associate degree in Human Services. I plan to further my education in this field by getting my bachelor's degree in behavioral health. I hope to use my experiences and knowledge to encourage, strengthen, and facilitate assistance to those who are in need. I am also working alongside my husband in the community as an Automotive Collision Repair Facility owner. It has been a great privilege to assist my husband in pursuing his lifelong dream. We enjoy our work together, and it is an exciting experience for me to learn his field of expertise and engage with so many phenomenal people in our area. I am a fun-loving individual who thrives on living life and pursuing dreams! I am an avid chess player, a lover of all things feline, and a big fan of essential oils! At the age of 50, I decided to return to school to earn my GED. Since then, I have become a member of Phi Theta Kappa and a Notary Public. I have completed credentials for ministry, became a certified grant writer, trained in hospital chaplaincy, and certified in Christ-Centered leadership. Additionally, I am a member of the North American Christian Social Workers Association (NACSW), where I have been trained in "The Role of Christian Faith and Spirituality in the Grieving Process" and "Suicide Prevention for Christians in Social Work." I am an active member of the Spring River Chamber of Commerce and the Spring River Car Club. My faith is a huge part of my desire and passion for helping others. I strive to always be, as Christ, a light in this world and in the lives of others. In John 8:12, Jesus says, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." I endeavor to help others see the light in the darkness. About Beautiful Feet: Romans 10:15 (NIV) And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" "For every circumstance and season of life, God has promises that offer direction, peace, perspective and wisdom. "Bible Promises for You" is a collection of promises taken from the New International Version of the Bible and is categorized by topic for easy reference." God led Jimmy and Pam Fair, in 2015, to partner with Highland Assembly of God, to GIVE Bible Promise Books, Devotionals, and Bibles to anyone who needs direction, peace, perspective, and wisdom.
