When Healing Doesn’t Come


Laying in my bed alone at 3am, I found myself questioning God. This is not something I typically do. I actually have a plaque in my home that says, “Let God Be God!” But on this occasion, I was at the end of my rope, wondering why God would allow my husband’s colon to burst, requiring emergency surgery and a long road to recovery.  This happened just seven months after a tumor was found on his adrenal gland, which required surgery to remove both the gland and tumor. 

God answered my question, as only He could. The next morning I opened my Bible app to find the scripture of the day. It read:

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” – Psalm 139:13-14

I believed that was put there just for me. It didn’t answer the question, “Why,” but definitely gave me peace of mind.
I thought this article, When Healing Doesn’t Come, by Rick Langer posted on EFCA Today digs a little deeper on this subject matter and was worth sharing. My prayer is that for those possibly asking this same question, receive some peace as well. Blessings.
