Do You Want to be Healed?

“Do you want to be healed?” he asked, immediately following my run-on statement of

 

grievances

disappointments

sins

exterior problems (eloquently stated, of course)

worries

irritations

injustices…

 

all of which are contributing to my current, toxic state of mind.

 

I didn’t even have to wait a full second for the offer, “Do you want to be healed?”

Hmm.  Such a poignant question.

 

He didn’t say, “Do you want me to fix all your problems?” and to be honest, I might want that more.

As if I could just… be fine.

I even created some of these problems.

 

Very likely, I will still have to exist with these conditions that pull at me, derail me, exhaust me, grieve me; but I could be filled with the fullness of peace… and general “all-shall-be-well”-ness.

That doesn’t sound like enough.

I might just rather complain about things.

 

Do I want to be healed?  What a question.

I shall consider it.
