If You Had Faith Your Child Would be Healed

“If you had faith God would heal your child.”

Some of the most heartbreaking and gut wrenching words I’ve had to wrestle with over the last years.

There was the person who prayed over my child at the super market, but their words brought condemnation.

There was the time someone contacted me to tell me step by step what I should do to heal my child— as if God’s healing was a result to be reached from a daily exercise program.

There was the question— “why hasn’t God healed your child?” Which felt blatantly like an accusatory finger pointing back in my direction.

If my faith was enough, God would heal my child.
