Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Heal.

I have sat multiple times with family members and heard the news of a challenging diagnosis. Hearing the process of surgery and then treatment which would follow, the question would go through my mind: Would this heal them?

Would they be whole again?

The healing process was not easy, the treatment often brought more difficulties and hurdles to be crossed.

We had to push forward, and hope healing would come.

This past week, I have wondered once again. How do these families and communities find healing after the horrific tragedy they have experienced? How do they move forward? Can healing even occur? How do they go through the pain of such loss and horror, the depths to which I cannot even fathom.

But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.” (Malachi 4:2, NLT)

Therein lies the hope, the way forward, the path to healing.

The Sun of Righteousness will rise. With righteousness comes justice. And with the rising, the sun will bring healing.

And so we pray for the Sun of Righteousness to rise.
Come, Lord Jesus, Come.
Rise and bring healing.
