How To Be Healed

 11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions andtemptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
 12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
 13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.

The above scripture is my favorite scripture on the Atonement.  It is where I first learned that the Savior can heal us of the pain in our lives through the Atonement.  The Atonement is about more than repentance!  Healing of the Soul can only come through the Savior.
The following are elements he lists that are necessary to be Healed:

  • Read the scriptures
  • Pray
  • Ponder
  • Repent if necessary
  • Be healed with the peace and joy of his Spirit
For each of us, this journey will look a little different as we progress on the journey, but God, our Heavenly Father, will guide us and lead the way through inspiration, personal revlation!

My journey has so far met with success in healing!  I feel so much more peace about my daughter's birth and my upcoming birth!  I am excited to approach it with the peace and joy I have felt, and with faith in my Heavenly Father and in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

I have prayed to seek help, now knowing which direction to go.  When I attended the temple last, I received direction on what scriptures to read, and as I have pondered it, I have received the peace that comes from healing.  So much so, that I have been able to put the pain out of my mind and just focus on the joy that comes from having children! My journey is not complete, but it is has begun!  And that I am grateful for.
