Spiritual and Emotional Healing
Sin, abuse, neglect, rejection, betrayal all cause significant emotional and spiritual pain that hurt just as physical pain does. God, our Great Physician, can ultimately heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds, healing, and making us whole. Spiritual and emotional healing is often a process with steps that we need to put action behind. Use these scriptures to guide your heart and mind toward full recovery.

The Season of Healing (Time to Mourn and Dance)
To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck [what is] planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
God’s time is measured in seasons, and they are not numbered in days; they are prophetic. We can not see the time of God, but He reveals His Will in His Word. There is a time for mourning; what we call sorrow or deep regret or sadness is based on emotions. We feel emotions in our soul, not our spirit. When we mourn, consider why we mourn; what is the cause of mourning, personal or spiritual? When God gives us a season, we have to consider what He shows us during this season. How are we to consider the dance? Is this a physical dance, a stomping of the feet, rhythm, or pattern that lacks spiritual context? What makes you mourn and dance?
El Hayyay, God of My Life - Psalm 42:8; we thank You for being the God of my life. We praise You for giving us a time to mourn and a time to dance. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who mourn in the Spirit, so that; we who dance will dance for His Glory. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
