Do You Need Healing for your Soul?

What about healing the soul of a man and a woman?

You and I are made of a body, a soul, and a spirit. Your soul is comprised of your mind, your will, and your emotions. When you believe in Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit that comes and takes up residency within you. The Holy Spirit redeems, restores, and begins to prompt your soul towards the Will of God and the path of Righteousness.

Before that convergence, we have experienced all kinds of gunk and junk. Our minds, wills, and emotions have been warped and pattern after the world's beliefs. We may have even experienced deep trauma and wounds within those areas that need to be healed. Otherwise, we walk around day in and day out with a form of mental dis-ease, a breakdown between thought, emotion, and behavior, and never fully healed heart.

  • Can a man and a woman who has been deeply hurt by life's circumstances be healed, heart, and soul?

  • If they have been wounded by someone they loved and trusted, can they love and trust again?

  • Can someone who has endured years of abuse, abandonment, and betrayal by those closest, be restored to wholeness?

The answer is with a resounding, "yes!"

Many today are searching for a solution to heal the hurting and longing of their soul. They may try it by extreme exercises or experiment with different forms of spiritual practices. They may try all of the tips, how-to's, and 21-day plans found on the pages of self-help books and ascribed by YouTube gurus. Unfortunately, soul wounds cannot be mended by bandaids, over the counter prescriptions, and sometimes not even time.

There is only one who "restores the soul" (Psalm 23:3) and gives us "beauty for ashes" (Isaiah 61:3).

Soul wounds heal by an introduction to the great Physician, the Comforter, and the intentionality of someone willing to seek the One that the Bible reveals is Jehovah Rapha.

Throughout the Bible, God reveals different elements of His character and nature. The origin of Jehovah Rapha can be traced back to two Hebrew words, which in combination can mean "God who heals."

"Jehovah," which is derived from the Hebrew word Havah can be translated as "to be," "to exist," or "to become known." The Hebraic translation of Rapha (râpâ) means "to restore" or "to heal."

· Sickness and infirmity (Psalm 41:3)

· Healing from mental affliction (Jonah 2:5-7)

· Spiritual fatigue (Psalm 23:3)

· Emotional suffering (Psalm 147:3)

· Anxiety or worry (John 14:27)

In my book, The Single Heart, I share my journey of walking out my healing and finding a sense of wholeness. Each chapter transparently guides you through whatever obstacles may be holding you back to find your true destiny as God's beloved.

It is an invitation to come fragment, crushed in spirit, and broken-hearted, and allowing God to heal all pain.

Let 'The Single Heart' be the first step you take toward the beautiful, joyful future God intends for you.

Here are 6 Scriptures to help you begin to heal from your past:

1. Jeremiah 17:9 - 'The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?'

Often we don't even know what needs to be pruned or healed until God's Spirit highlights it and brings it to our attention. We don't even know there's a root of bitterness and resentment until we're confronted by it. This can be hard because He convicts us of sin, shines a bright light on the area, and then keeps working on it until that thing is wholly pruned from us.

2. Psalm 51:10. 'Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.'

As bold and scary as it might be to confront our brokenness and insecurities, it's vital to pray daily while going through this pruning and healing process.

3. 1 Peter 1:7 - 'So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.'

Even though we have hard times, face losses, and heartaches in this life, this verse is a reminder of God's great mercy and the great hope that awaits us when we experience wholeness through God.

4. John 15:1-2 - 'I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.'

God promises in this verse that if we allow Him to prune us of everything that is unlike Him, we will be able to bear more excellent fruit.

5. Job 23:10 - 'But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.'

This shows we will come out on the other side of the pruning process better than what we started, like pure gold.

6. Matthew 7:11: 'So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.'

How much more will a Perfect and Heavenly Father protect and provide for me, if even my dad, who was still flesh and flawed, would not have let any harm come to me? 'How much more would a Perfect Father desire to heal, set free, and do good things for me when I trust Him?

Until next time,
