"Do you want to be healed?"
These words echo in my mind today. When gifts I have prayed for come to be, I come face to face with whether I really wanted them in the first place.
Jesus asked this before he healed the man who couldn't walk.
I wonder if there were more to the dialogue.
You sure you're in?
Because I can fix this.
But a miracle requires mobility in response.
Sometimes it's easier to expect the worst - and receive it -
than to keep my heart soft enough to acknowledge the healing.
