Healing from God

Ezekiel 47:12
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.

There have been so many times in the last few weeks that I have thought about blogging.  I just couldn’t think of anything to share except what I have been going through lately.  I finally decided I should just write about my journey.

For many months I have had headaches, some migraines but some other types as well.  I have had blood work done several times, made the adjustments necessary, would have temporary relief and then once again face the same thing.

I tried everything I could think of—changing my diet, keeping a food diary, supplements, medicine, etc.  I felt at the end of my rope.  I prayed that God would either reveal to me what I needed to do in the natural or that he would just heal me.  I didn’t feel I could continue like I was. 

That same week, I went to my Nurse Practitioner’s office to pick something up.  At this point I had a headache for two days, and nothing had helped.  She gave me a sample of an oil blend to rub on my head and neck.  Forty-five minutes later, I was completely out of pain, and the headache did not come back.  The next day I felt like my body was detoxing. 

This experience really got my attention.  I had to know more about these oils.   I started doing some research and discovered a whole new world I didn’t know existed.  I have heard story after story, much like mine of how people were helped.  

It all makes sense now.  Even Jesus was given frankincense and myrrh by the wise men shortly after his birth.  There are so many healing properties to these oils.  I just started a Bible study on essential oils.  I don’t know a lot yet, as I am just beginning, but I will say, I feel I have finally heard from God about my healing. 

The difference between these oils (which are certified 100% therapeutic pure) and medicine is that medicine treats symptoms.  Essential oils bring healing.  Could it be that God created plants not only for our eating but for our healing?

I’ve ordered a few oils myself, and have seen other miracles in my body since I started walking on this path.  I used to have large painful breast fibroids until I applied frankincense.  Now I can’t feel them. 

In the past when I read about the oils of the Bible, I never considered them as something that enhances healing along with prayer.  I wonder why God gave specific recipes for anointing oils.   Could their therapeutic properties help with healing? 

I don’t have all the answers, but intend to search it out.  Please comment.  Maybe you know more about these things than I do personally.  I would love your input.
