The women of the Relief Society founded the Deseret Hospital in specifically to provide quality health care in an environment of faith and healing. I have shared before my memory of the first day I set out to practice healing. It was not quite 50 years ago—but close. I could hardly sleep the night before my first day as a nurse. I remember it so vividly. The spring air was cool, and the sun seemed unusually bright. Two conflicting feelings left my heart pounding. He responds to their treatments and drugs.
Student nurses have actually killed him a few times!
Consequently, they also learn how to resuscitate him as well as any doctor on TV can. That first day I carefully pulled on my support hose, little white nylon dress, and ugly prescription shoes. My crowning glory was the starched white cap that held my long hair tucked tightly beneath. I wanted to cure. I wanted to care. I wanted to heal.
I have learned a lot about healing since that day. I have learned that healing is a process of restoring and becoming whole. Healing Hurts First, healing hurts. Life hurts. Healing really only begins when we face the hurt in its full force and then grow through it with all the strength of our soul. For every reward of learning and growing, some degree of pain is always the price.
Author M. I think you would do without dating, graduating, getting married, or having children. Sometime in your life you will know a crashing crisis or heavy heartache that will threaten all sense of logic or hope or certainty—from which, no matter how you emerge, nothing will ever be the same. Hurts come as unique losses, unwelcome surprises, fading hope, or grief. This semester you may not get the 4.
Maybe this is the best you will ever look. Perhaps someone in your past hurt you deeply.
I know that pain. Also, I live a little of every day waiting for heaven to see my son and mother again. Last semester two of our nursing students lost their fathers. I imagine that no success in school or career or life will be quite the same for them. Some of us suffer the wrenching consequences of sin or just poor judgment.
Some of you may now be entangled in activities with others—or perhaps on the Internet—that you wish you had never started. Or you may have fallen into a trap of debt. We hurt when we see our own failures or helplessly watch the unwise decisions of others. Our lives are changed forever not only by the pain but by facing our need to heal. Pain is part of living. Pain brings us to the source of healing. Elder Jeffrey R.
Holland warned: The world around you is an increasingly hostile and sinful place. Occasionally that splashes onto us, and perhaps, in the case of a few of you, it may be nearly drowning you. You can change. You can be helped.
You can be made whole—whatever the problem. Your friend or your husband or wife or your mother cannot do it for you. You have to face the problem and the pain. My mother once told me of an experience she had one winter morning as she drove down to check the cattle in the lower pasture. She noticed a car off the side of the road. Inside she recognized a young mother and three children.
When my mother asked if they needed help, the woman tearfully reminded her that this was the place of the accident two weeks earlier that had killed her husband.
I have learned they are not the same. Healing is not cure. Cure is clean, quick, and done—often under anesthesia.
The antibiotic kills the pathogen; the scalpel cuts out the malignancy; the medication resolves the distorted chemistry. Healing, however, is often a lifelong process of recovery and growth in spite of, maybe because of, enduring physical, emotional, or spiritual assault.
It requires time. We may pray for cure when we really need healing. Whether for cell reconstruction, for nerve and muscle rehabilitation, for emotional recovery, or for spiritual forgiveness, healing needs work and time and energy.
Healing cannot happen in a surgical suite where the pain is only a sleepy memory. Cure is passive, as you submit your body to the practitioner. Healing is active. It requires all the energy of your entire being. Healing Is Private My third lesson is that healing is private.
Elder Neal A. Maxwell taught: There is, in the suffering of the highest order, a point that is reached—a point of aloneness—when the individual as did the Savior on a much grander scale must bear it. Even the faithful may wonder if they can take any more or if they are in some way forsaken. Those who. It is something we must bear ourselves in order that our triumph can be complete. Private healing is not healing by abandonment.
