This Is the Year

For the bulk of 2010, God continually asked me this question:

"Do you want to be healed?"

When Jesus saw him stretched out by the pool and knew how long he had been there, he said, "Do you want to get well?" John 5:6, The Message

I have to decide: is it enough for me to understand why my heart is broken, why I'm afraid and anxious, why I think and act with this bent frame of mind?

Or do I want to be healed?

I want to be healed.

My first verse for the Siesta Scripture Memory Team is a passage I've been impressed with for the bulk of 2010. It took on literal meaning for me on September 28 when I tripped over a hidden box at church and fell full weight on my left knee on the worship center's cement floor. 
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. "Make level paths for your feet," (cf. Prov. 4:26) so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
Hebrews 12:11-13, NIV

I start physical therapy this Thursday. I've been in spiritual therapy for quite awhile.

This is the year for healing.
