It happened that there was a man full of leprosy in one of the towns where Jesus was;
and when he saw Jesus,
he fell prostrate, pleaded with him, and said,
“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”
Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
And the leprosy left him immediately. (Lk 5:12-13)
We are all wounded people.
We all feel, at times, like lepers — pariahs — people separated from others.
We are separated for many reasons.
We all have one desire: to be whole.
God has that desire for us as well. “I do will it” is a phrase that Jesus uses a number of times. He wills for us to be made whole, to be healed, to be reconciled, to be at peace.
His healing awaits you this day.
FAITH ACTION: What, in your life, feels out of place? What healing do you need? Go to the Lord and ask Him to make you whole. He does will that for you.
