As you may know, my daughter, Taylor, has a rare terminal illness, MPS. On Sunday, I felt especially blessed when I posted this photo and note:
We serve a healing God. He makes all things new and will restore and redeem what is rightfully his, everything in Creation and every story since the beginning of time. God has a very special plan for Taylor’s life, terminal medical diagnosis included. I’m not privy to all the details at this point, but man, when we get to heaven, what a time that is going to be!
Healing Bible Verses
Today I wanted to share with you the healing Bible verses I often pray. Not long ago I received an email from a reader who is battling illness herself AND her mom has cancer. How my heart goes out to people enduring suffering! God’s Word contains the words we need for healing. Every level of healing- physical, mental, emotional, spiritual… the list could continue. Grab on to this Scripture for healing today!
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer;
you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’ Isaiah 58:8 &9
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity,

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars;
he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. Psalm 147:3-5
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; Ecclesiastes 3:1-3
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14

Matthew 13:15&16
