Words of Healing

Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart. —Jeremiah 15:16

When I was newly married, my husband worked for a Christian television network. Everyone there looked like they were ready for primetime, which made me extremely jealous.

My mind got so crazy that I scared myself, so I went to a Christian counselor. At my first appointment, I just talked and talked about how I was so jealous. When I was done, the counselor sweetly said, “Dámaris, I rebuke you! It’s obvious you are not a woman of the Word.”

Oh, my goodness! Only God can “hit” you with love!

The counselor was right; I wasn’t a woman of the Word. Then she gave me her prescription: my husband and I were to start reading the Bible together on a regular basis.

The result of this simple act was amazing. As I began to “eat” the Word of God, He healed my mind of jealousy and insecurity! God’s Word is still changing me, and it’s still changing you. It’s showing us every day to seek Him.

Make it Personal

Are there areas of life where you need to be healed? How could seeking God through His Word help that process?
