About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

I am probably about to open up a big can of worms here, but that is OK!  Sometimes it's good to make people think about what they have been taught.
I just feel that I need to share what I have learned.

I have been a follower of Jesus for about 11 years? Maybe 12.  I grew up going to a Lutheran church, made my first communion and confirmation and never knew who Jesus really was until I was in my thirties. Pretty sad reality.
Anyway, For about 10 years, I had no idea that it was God's will for us to be healed. I mean physically and mentally, here on earth yes.
I had always heard " IF it's God's will" Or when people would pray they would say, " Lord, if it's  your will for this person to be healed, please heal them".

Three years ago I had cancer. I had wonderful support from my church, lots of love, they came around me and my family and they were the church! However, I do remember some of them praying, " IF it's your will for Amy to be healed"
Or " God, if it's your will for Amy to have a feeding tube". 
I didn't know any differently.

In the last year I learned that it IS ALWAYS God's will for us to be Healed.
I know it's a huge discussion and some don't believe it, and that's OK, I'm not trying to start a debate, but there are people who actually don't know this, who have never in their life heard this! I was one of them! 

Sometimes we  need to search things out for ourselves. Sometimes we don't care enough to do that, until we get sick, or someone we know gets a life threatening illness. They you start asking questions and wondering things.

I am healed of my cancer. But when I had it, I didn't know he wanted me healed.

Let me share something with you.

If you look up a passage, say this one~

Romans 10:9

New King James Version (NKJV)
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Then you go to this website.....


and you go to the Interlinear bible on the side and click on it. Put in the verse.
You will see it there, and you can click on the word "Saved". Do that.
Guess what it says?

This is what SAVED means........

  1. to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction
    1. one (from injury or peril)
      1. to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health
      2. to preserve one who is in danger of destruction, to save or rescue
    2. to save in the technical biblical sense
      1. negatively 1b
    3. to deliver from the penalties of the Messianic judgment 1b
    4. to save from the evils which obstruct the reception of the Messianic deliverance
 Translated Words

Is your head blowing off yet?  

What does this mean? Jesus didn't just die so you can be forgiven of your sins and go to Heaven. 
He also died for you to be Healthy. Whole. Well. Restored.

This was quite a shocker to me. A good shocker!

Here's a little tid bit I found on another blog ~

The little Greek word sozo in the New Testament means three things at once: to save, to heal and to set free. Depending on the context it is rendered as one or the other. But we miss out in the translation the fact that all three are part and parcel of the same deal: namely that Christ purchased all three for us by His blood shed on the cross.

This is consistent with what Isaiah says:

(Isa 53:5 NIV) But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Sozo appears 120 times in the New Testament. Here are a few examples:

(Luke 19:10 NIV) For the Son of Man came to seek and to save (sozo) what was lost."

(John 3:17 NIV) For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save (sozo) the world through him.

(Rom 10:9 NIV) That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (sozo).

(Mat 9:21 NIV) She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed (sozo)."

(Luke 17:19 NIV) Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well (sozo)."

(Luke 18:42 NIV) Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed (sozo) you."

(Luke 8:36 NIV) Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured (sozo).

(2 Tim 4:18 NIV) The Lord will rescue (sozo) me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

(Jude 1:5 NIV) Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord delivered (sozo) his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe.

Give credit where credit is due for that........

So, when you are sick, don't accept it as God's will. It's NOT. He wants you well. He wants you healed. It is ALWAYS his will for you to be healed. :)
Pray knowing that it is his will.

Praise Jesus for his body and blood!!!!! :)
