[healing and prayers]

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

    Your faith is not broken.

    I had a pastor tell my ministry class that it is first wiser to ask God for permission to pray for healing, before praying for healing. Faith should never be the question. EVER. The question should always be, how will God use this?

    You are absolutely right that God may not heal at all, or may heal in ways that are unexpected. Our faith should be in God's love, not God's healing.

    thanks for the feedback and encouragement, Ian!

  • Thanks for sharing this. I can't imagine being a sermon translator. I've heard worse than this, and having to put it into a different language and assume a certain amount of agreement with it by saying it again would probably drive me to insanity.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with your perspective, IMO. Too many folks assume the "knowitall" position regarding faith like this, and I'm not a fan.

    • thankfully for me i wasn't translating up front (did that too a lot of times, but thankfully not that time)… i was just whispering the translation to a few friends of mine who sat next to me… otherwise that would be a BIG problem… for all involved.

      thanks for stopping by!
