A few years ago, I had a healing that deepened my understanding of God’s creation and my place in this creation.
I had observed many warts growing on my hands but wasn’t aware of what they were or that I could pray to find healing. When I showed them to my parents, we talked, and they let me know I had the option of handling the situation through medicine or prayer, but that it wouldn’t be right to ignore the problem. I decided I would choose prayer because it had been effective for me before.
I started praying by thinking about God’s entire creation. I struggled with the question of why God would create a wart, something ugly and so unlike the good His creation is supposed to be. Did He actually create something ugly? The answer came in an epiphany that, like in so many other healings, reintroduced an idea I already knew, but in a fresh way.
