Healing Thoughts 

He sent out His Word and healed them;
He rescued them from the grave.  Let them
give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing
love and His wonderful deeds for mankind.
Psalm 107:20-21

About Healing Thoughts

Healing Thoughts is a Central Florida based Christian newsletter that has been distributed locally, nationally, and globally since 2008.  Over the years, we have been blessed to have wonderful clergy and lay guest writers join us.

In 2008, when we created Healing Thoughts, our goal was to produce a newsletter that had a conversational tone reminiscent of President Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats.  The whole idea was to have the writings feel like a conversation between two (or more) friends just sitting around talking about what Jesus was doing in their lives. 

Moving Healing Thoughts to an online venue enables us to bring you the same writing, audio, and video you’ve come to love in a blog format. Our hope is that Healing Thoughts Online will be a place of comfort, hope, and healing for all who visit.

I just finished watching the episode “Shabbat” from Season One of The Chosen.  It reminded me that God created the Sabbath day for us to rest. Over the last year, I had begun to think of the Sabbath as kind of a reset button for the first day of my week. It was my...

Recently, I sold a painting as a Wedding Anniversary gift.  I ordered the canvas and frame from a company that prints all my artwork.  Usually the shipping time is between 2-3 days from the time they receive your order.  We ordered it on the 10th of June and their...

My Provider

My Provider

I know I shouldn’t be surprised when God provides for me, but I am always blessed by His provision.  During this pandemic, things got hectic and many people panicked which led to shortages of several items.  All stores were out of everyday items like toilet paper,...

No Evidence of Disease (NED)

October 10, 2019 is the day it started.    Complete happenstance, that night, caused me to realize something wasn't right.  It felt like a problem.  I called the doctor the next morning and was seen that day.  Fast forward through scheduling several tests, lots of...

To be honest, unfogiveness only hurts ourselves.  We are the one holding the porcupine not the person who hurt us.  The tighter we hold onto the offense…
