On the Way to Healing

A child going for a ride may ask, soon after the car has left the home driveway, "Are we there yet?" And the question, with variations, may be repeated many times before the destination is reached. But this same child, a few years later, may begin to enjoy the scenery, pointing out interesting formations of hills, rocks, trees, or clouds, colors in the sky or the earth, or man-made wonders such as bridges, power plants, or road construction equipment.

One seeking healing through prayer may, like the immature child, always want to know when the healing will come. Or he may recognize the grand views of spiritual reality along the way and lose himself and the disease that claims to be a part of himself in what he is discerning. The difference is not one of human psychology but of truth.
