The journey to health can be long, hard, boring, adventurous, rocky… It can have peaks and valleys, it can spin you around many different ways. The body is masterfully made and is still a beautiful mystery to most people who study it. No matter how many degrees one may have, no one can claim to fully understand the human body.
We are a society of people who for the most part, come into world already carrying “baggage” in our cells. This baggage can include toxins, pathogens and even emotions. Then depending on the way our parents and caregivers choose to feed us and raise us and our individual life experiences, our bodies will either thrive or struggle. (Hopefully a lot of the former and a little of the latter.) No two of us are exactly alike so my journey may not be anything like your journey and my health goals may be very different from your health goals. Thankfully, God knows that His people are extremely diverse and He made it so that there are quite literally thousands of ways to do the same thing. We can unload all of the baggage and repair and restore our physical and emotional health. Every one of us can heal if it is what one truly desires!
Over the years as I have observed and guided many people through their healing journeys, what I have found to be paramount, is that one must keep God in the center of all of the activity. One must stay close to The One that created each of us. The One who knows us best. The One who knew us before we were even created! By leaning on God and seeking His guidance and inspiration, the healing journey will always be bearable. God will keep you propped up in difficult times and in the quiet moments that you spend with HIm, He may actually let you know what your next move should be.
You should not try to make your own trail when working toward health, especially since God already knows the way forward. I do not at all mean to imply that one should neglect good food, good supplements and the therapies that will help us along the way (that would put me out of business!) These are all gifts and they should be utilized. However, if you are struggling to reclaim your health, it is mostly likely due to the fact that the “trail is eroded”. The path is not clear and we need help to clear the path. When one asks God for help He most certainly will send it for “Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread…” (Matthew 7:9)
May God be the guide of your soul, your spirit, and your life.
