Letter from the Editor

Spring/Summer 2016

Dear Healing Line Family,

My seasons are getting all mixed up here in Florida this year! We had temperatures in the 90’s during winter and we were having freeze warnings as we got closer to spring. My plumbagos were blooming in January and the azaleas started budding in February. Even the plants were confused with this weather! We do not always get what we expect.

As I started on my healing journey, I found the same thing occurred. When I first went in to Christian Healing Ministries I was expecting prayer for physical healing (I started out in a wheel chair). After all, our son had a profound physical healing during our first encounter at CHM. I found that God wanted to heal my heart that was full of pain and fear first before He healed my body. I was actually annoyed when my prayer ministers asked “What would you like Jesus to do for you today?” I thought that the metal chair I was sitting in made the answer quite obvious. Jesus had other plans. I have learned to go with the flow of the Holy Spirit. He blows in different directions and we are not always privy to where He wants to blow next. If you have been the “persistent widow” asking God again and again and again for something, consider asking this: Lord, how do you want me to pray for this situation? If we can hear and listen to His answer, sometimes we find ourselves praying something quite different than we expected.

As you look at your calendar, please consider joining us at one or more of our CHM schools, conferences, or retreats this year. If you are not able, please pray for us during these events. We appreciate your prayers too!
