Finding healing and home after college
When the pain in my heel started, I tried ignoring it at first. Honestly, I hoped it would just go away on its own. That didn’t happen, though, and I was soon in constant discomfort and walking was difficult.
At the same time as this was going on, I was moving back home after a year at college. I hadn’t been home long when the pain became unbearable, and I realized that I needed to deal with it rather than just ignore it as I had been. In the past, I have experienced many healings through prayer, and I knew that this wouldn’t be an exception.
When I sat down to pray, it occurred to me that I had been feeling very restless about my sense of home. While I was happy to be with my family again, my suitcases were still not unpacked and I didn’t feel as if I was settled back in. In some ways, even though home was the same as always, it felt different—almost as if I didn’t belong. Although this concern didn’t seem directly related to a painful heel, I trusted that God was telling me what really needed to be addressed, and I focused my prayers on home.
