22Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.
23Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; 24but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. 25Therefore he is able to save completely[c] those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
26Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. 27Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. Hebrews 7:22-27

I can't describe in my own words why I picked this song this week, so I encourage you to go to this link and check out this video before listening to this week's song. It will say it all.
We serve a mighty God who heals and fixes broken hearts.

Several years ago, I clearly felt God was calling me to speak to others about the wondrous and miraculous things He’s done in my life. So, being the organized, methodical, take control person that I am, I began to research how to become a speaker.
Several training opportunities were available, so I signed up for them and off I went to learn how to become a speaker. One such opportunity was the She Speaks Conference which is part of Proverbs 31 Ministries. I attended the conference and was blown away by the teaching, encouragement and inspiration I received. The women who are part of the Proverbs 31 team share openly about their struggles and successes and offer friendship, advice and encouragement to the conference attendees. I came home and quickly put much of the information I learned to use, not only in speaking as part of a group I am involved with called Epilepsy Advocates, but sharing my testimony in many churches and women’s groups.
Then, life happened. Just as things were going really well, my son who has epilepsy (you can read more about his story here) began to have a great deal of health challenges. He made a trip to the hospital for about 17 months in a row with status seizures, so everything else sort of stopped. My speaking engagements stopped. My writing stopped. But, my desire to do those things didn’t.

He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you." Exodus 15:26
O LORD my God, I called to you for help
and you healed me. Psalm 30:2
Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion Psalm 103:1-4
He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.Isaiah 53:5
In case you have fogotten, we serve a mighty God who heals.
I pray for healing today for those who need to feel a touch from the hand of God.
