Healing Body and Spirit

Her inspiring recovery helped her realize that Jesus healed her—a daily devotion that reminds us we’re always cared for.

Roberta Messner

“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.”—Matthew 9:12

A team of doctors removed a large tumor from my head, and my eyes were bandaged for days. I couldn’t see anyone, but I felt love by the prompt response to my call bell, the compassion of a touch, the kindness of a hearing heart. The nurses were competent, to be sure, but it was their caring that drew me to them. When I recovered, I made these characteristics the standard for my own work as a nurse.

I can’t help but think of Jesus, the Great Physician, who not only healed the body, but the mind and the spirit as well. I keep in mind that He is always with me; a doctor who still makes house calls.
