Making Way for the Light – Jasmine’s Journey of Healing
Last week I was in Maine for my nephew’s wedding. I had a wonderful time with my family and friends going from one event to the next. A lot of people asked me about Jasmine and her progress. I told them what I knew at that point and was anxious to get home and see how she was doing.
Jasmine went to the beach this past weekend with a group of friends and I was praying that she would have the strength and health to enjoy her time with them. I praised God as she shared with me yesterday that during the two days she was there she walked a total of 5 miles and swam a total of 2 hours. She was tired as she talked but had a glow on her face as she continued to tell me how much she and her friends laughed and enjoyed their time together. That’s huge. I wish I could communicate on this blog just how huge that is. She’s getting her life back. Prayer by prayer. Answer by answer. Her days of watching on the sidelines wishing she could enjoy life like a healthy young person are becoming a thing of the past.
But that’s not the only miracle that we are celebrating today. Chris and I both noticed something very significant yesterday. As we walked down the hallway and glanced in her bedroom we saw a picture of hope. Her long curtains that for years have obstructed the light from her two windows had been pulled back. Jasmine is beginning to embrace hope as she makes way for the light.
Let there be light. Those are the four simple words that God spoke and everything began to change. I wrote a powerful Scripture in Jasmine’s healing journal today. It’s from the Passion Version, “Her pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of ‘I Am’, meditating day and night in his true revelation of light… The Lord embraces her path as she moves forward.” (Psalms 1)
It’s time to pull back the curtains and let God speak light into our darkness. Today His power is revealed in our lives as we speak His Words out loud in prayer and in faith.
How high. How wide. No matter where I am healing is in Your hands. How deep. How strong. Now by Your grace I stand. Healing is in Your hands. (“Healing is in Your Hands” by Christy Nockels)
