In today’s gospel from Mark (Mark 1:40-45), a leper approaches Jesus with the statement of faith “If you are willing, you can heal me.” God is always willing to heal and provide us with absolute health and wholeness.
The question remains: How willing am I to be healed?
- Am I willing to set aside my perception of how God ought to heal?
- Am I willing to let go of obstacles that prevent my healing – grudges, resentment, unforgiveness?
- Am I willing to allow God to act in His time?
Let us pray for the grace to open our hearts to God’s desire to heal us.
