Every year I get this way for a day to a week where I just don’t have the Christmas spirit. It takes me a day or more to figure out my problem. It’s source is my grief from those who are no longer here to celebrate.
So I was reading and found Exodus 15:26. In English it says, “…for I am the Lord, who heals you.” The Hebrew there is Jehovah-Rapha.
That was my mom’s favorite title for God while she was sick. She liked to think of God this way during her illness. He played a big part in her during that time, but she still died. Then again, in Heaven she’s been totally restored, healed. He still is Jehovah-Rapha. I like to think about that, that she’s not sick AND she’ll have a new body.
Do you ever get “down” during the holidays? How do you “snap out of it?” Or don’t you? How can I pray for you?
