Ask for God's Help with Healing

Daily Devotionals blogger Julia Attaway

I’m typing one-handed. The other hand is on an ice pack applied to my cheek; I have a fractured upper jawbone because of a freak accident. It’s painful and annoying, and has required reorganizing my week.

I asked God to help me view my situation in a healthy way. After I sent up that prayer, I realized that a month from now my life will be pretty much where it would have been without the break. A year from now I probably won’t remember the date of the fracture. Five years from now this probably won’t even make my Top 10 list of Bad Things That Have Happened to Me.

Bones heal, if we give them time. Other kinds of injuries may never even form, if we ask for God’s help in seeing events from his perspective. Remember to ask. It helps.
