Healing in progress

“There’s another one!” my friend exclaimed as we passed a small metal sign that read: “Healing in progress; stay on trail.” We were hiking in Arizona, and the sign was a reminder to be aware of the fragile desert ecosystem. 

To me this sign served as a metaphor to remember that each and every prayer is heard by God and is answered—but that we must stay on the trail of deepening our spiritual understanding and growth to let healing happen. This can be challenging when we’re praying about something that, on the surface, doesn’t seem to be changing.

We'd love to hear from you!
