There is hope within your deepest struggle that won’t let go.

Mark 5:18-20

As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed pleaded to remain with him. But Jesus would not permit him but told him instead, “Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.” Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed.


Sometimes you have to go through troubled times before you are able to help others.

The term “wounded healer” was created by psychologist Carl Jung.

The idea states that an analyst is compelled to treat patients because the analyst is “wounded” also.

So it is with the possessed man in today’s scripture who is healed by Jesus.

The healed man, who had been suffering terribly and separated from his community, was whole again.

He can now share the story of his unmerited healing.

As it says above, “the man went off and began to proclaim…what Jesus had done for him.”

And the result?

“All were amazed.”

What struggles have you been through?

What struggles are you going through now?

Be present to what’s happening.

Do not let your mind tell you gloom and doom stories with depressing outcomes about what is happening.

They are all stories!

Not true!


Be present.

Trust in the healing power of Love which is always sustaining you.

Healing and new life are just ahead.

You will have quite the story to tell…and quite the service to provide.
