If you could ask God for just one thing, what would it be? I’m sure most of you reading this, if you’re unwell, would say healing. God appeared to Soloman in a dream and asked him this very question. I wonder what he would answer if he only had 6 months to live or if he’d been ill for many years?

Today we’re going to look at how wisdom is the key to our healing. 

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom.” 

Pro 4:7

Praying for healing is not our principle thing, it’s wisdom! When we’re ill, we need God’s wisdom more than anything else! Even if Soloman had been very unwell, asking for wisdom was still the higher choice. In the message translation it says this: (more…)

Healing has no shortcut

When I was at University I was the Queen of shortcuts! I was studying for a German degree, so reading the English translations of set texts was the ‘shortcut’ for me. So much quicker than reading in German!! Yes I know it defeats the purpose, but it meant I could read the book in a much speedier way! giving me more time to do what I wanted.

Let’s admit it, there are times in all of our lives, especially where healing is concerned, where we want the quick MacDonld’s fix. We want someone to lay hands on us so we can instantly see the physical results in our bodies. This is wanting the shortcut and it’s not always God’s best for us. Healing has no shortcut; there is a hidden formula in Scripture we just can’t ignore. A formula which takes time….. (more…)

We crave connection and to be understood. It starts when we connect with our mothers the moment we’re held for the very first time. This gives acceptance, love and security. When illness happens though, we sense the lack of understanding by others so this connection

Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem to be important to you. C.G Jung

We also feel different because we can no longer join in with ‘life’; the activities we once enjoyed with others have now stopped and it feels like the whole world is going on without

If you’ve been struggling with illness for any length of time, you’ll be no stranger to guilt: ugly, miserable, hideous guilt. 

Guilty for not working, guilty for relying on others, guilty for not serving in church, guilty…guilty…guilty… Aargh!! Every time we fall short of the standard we, others or even society have set, the misery of guilt has the potential to start knocking. 

Other times we analyse our lives and ask ourselves ‘was it my personal sin that caused this sickness?’ ‘Is God punishing me?’ Even though in your conscious mind you know this isn’t true, deep down, somewhere in your innermost being, there’s that doubt.  (more…)

Hey everyone

“Shame is like traffic…and traffic has a memory…” Ps Sophia

I’m so excited to share with you this week’s message by Ps Sophia on Shame, something that resonates with all of us. That awful deep rooted feeling that you’re a bad person because of the things you’ve done wrong. She takes us right back to be beginning when Adam and Eve knew no shame in the garden. Then they took from the wrong tree and everything changed. They no longer relied upon God for their worth, they took control and rejected God. Whether we’re aware or not, we do the same thing! (more…)

To be content in life has little to do with external circumstances, but rather our internal belief system. When we’re in a wilderness season, it’s easy to focus on what isn’t right, the pain we’re in or how great our life used to be. We feel justified for being unhappy because we’re suffering, as though we’re entitled. All this leads to even more discontent and misery!

Surely it’s normal to be unhappy when illness strikes? Isn’t misery expected  when an illness has continued for such a long time?! (more…)

Hello lovely people

Happy Friday everyone, and for those who are new to the group – Welcome!

In today’s message, Ps Glyn teaches us on the importance of being content in our circumstances. This particular preach, was part of our financial wholeness series a couple of years ago. However, the keys to being content that Ps Glyn refers to, can be transferred to a your healing journey. (more…)

Hey everybody!

Today’s message is one of my favourite topics. Bible Hope! This isn’t a worldly wishful thinking type of hope where we just hope for the best. Bible hope is certain!! Yay! This is awesome news for all of us who are believing God for breakthrough in our health. We can be confident in Jesus and in the Word of God.

In his sermon, Ps Paul Garner explains that the hope we have in Jesus is not a psychological type of hope based on feelings, but a theological one. (more…)

So how do we recognise perfectionists and why is it damaging to our health? Depression, anxiety, OCD, low self esteem…..all common amongst perfectionists.

A few weeks ago, I was lying in bed with a thumping headache. I’d been writing an essay which I had finished at tea time. Instead of putting the essay away, I went through it again…and again…and again! I put in extra quotes and rewrote sentences. I did a bit more research to include in the essay, it had to be the best it could possibly be! Finally, it was past midnight and my essay was perfect! Yay! The problem though, was I ended up with a thumping headache. This is the result of perfection driving me. Can you relate? Writing an amazing essay gives me that feeling of success and achievement. Have I been behaving like this my whole life? How many times have I been late to church because my outfit just doesn’t look right? How many times have I felt bad about myself because i’ve said something wrong to someone? I’ve replayed a conversation in my head and wished I’d said something different.

It’s time to change. (more…)
