In summary, Jesus was an influential intercessor with God, the one and only healer . Jesus ‘ role was that of a folk healer who acted perfectly in accord with folk traditions of his Middle Eastern culture. The results of Jesus ‘ healing activities in each case were that he indeed did restore mean- ing to people’s lives.
Healing the paralytic at Capernaum appears in Matthew 9:1–8, Mark 2:1–12 and Luke 5:17–26. The Synoptics state that a paralytic was brought to Jesus on a mat; Jesus told him to get up and walk, and the man did so. Jesus also told the man that his sins were forgiven, which irritated the Pharisees.
God quickens and renews us by the Living Word, through and by Jesus himself, who came to heal the brokenhearted through His payment of His own blood on the Cross. Our lives would totally be broken if Jesus had not put His own life on the line and took our own place for our sins.

Jesus exercised the ministry of healing , and the gospels are littered with examples of him curing the sick : “At sunset, all who had people sick with various diseases brought them to him. He laid his hands on each of them and cured them” (Lk 4:40).
According to all four gospels, Jesus was brought to the “Place of a Skull” and crucified with two thieves, with the charge of claiming to be “King of the Jews”, and the soldiers divided his clothes before he bowed his head and died .
Ways to Mend a Broken Heart Don’t Let Your Emotions Rule. Do Take Care of Yourself. Don’t Get Stuck in the Past. Do Appreciate the Good Memories. Don’t Deny Your Needs. Do Reevaluate Your Needs. Don’t Jump Into a “Rebound” Relationship. Do Try Again When You’re Ready.
How long does the healing process take ? ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ sang The Supremes, and sadly, you can’t hurry getting over it either. One study claims it takes around three months (11 weeks to be precise) for a person to feel more positive about their break-up.

Miracles do happen everyday , all day long. Because around us, life bursts with mysteries – a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. The universe is big, it is vast, complicated, and yet simple.
