“…line upon line; here a little, and there a little.”
“God, I’ve been praying for healing for a very long time,” I reminded Him this morning when I went out walking.
“I know. I’ve heard you,” God answered.
“Are you sure? Because you haven’t really healed me,” I said.
“You’ve seen improvements, haven’t you?” God asked.
“Yes. a few things are better. But I want real healing,” I insisted.
“What do you think your improvements are?”
“I don’t know. But they don’t feel like they mean I’ll improve more,” I said.
“Each improvement is a step towards greater healing,” God said gently. “Appreciate each step in the process for what it is. Enjoy what healing you have to date, and expect more to come.”
“I’ll do my best to be grateful for the steps that have been made thus far,” I replied. “And I’ll expect more healing in the future when the time is right.”
“There you go, Sparrow. Step by step,” God said.
