Hugs Heal

hugs heal

Hugs are a beautiful thing to experience when they are genuine. They can bring healing to the heart, comfort to the soul, and peace to the mind. Love is exchanged, worry is left behind, and God’s creation comes together to celebrate their love for each another.

To embrace someone with affection, and to share this experience with another, can be very comforting. It soothes the turmoil within you, lowers your defenses, and gives you moments to relax. You feel safe and secure, as you enjoy the embrace of the other person, and come to realize just how much you are loved.

Today, if you are needing a hug, may you feel the warmth of God’s embrace. Call out to the Holy Spirit, for He is your comforter, and let Him come and bless you. He is very gentle and very kind, and He will never overwhelm you. He knows you very well and loves you abundantly, so ask Him to come and be with you.


Holy Spirit,

May each person who invites you to come experience your presence. Make your presence known to them in a way that they can receive you. Speak your words of life, show them your tender care, and let them marvel at your wonderful love. You come to represent Jesus of Nazareth, whose perfect love casts out all fear, whose peace calms troubled minds, and whose presence stills all storms.

Thank you, Holy Spirit for coming and being with each person who desires your presence. Amen.

(Thank you to my wife, Lisa, for the title of this post)

    So true. I love hugs! I ha a friend who was a professional speaker, and one of her sessions was hug therapy. Nothing like getting corporate people hugging one another It was always such a fun seminar. She has since passed away but I will never forget the hugs she always gave. Thanks for the reminder!

    Be blessed!

    Thanks, David! Yes, hugs are harbors in the storms of life. I’m grateful my Shepherd hugs me through the testimony of His Word and the indwelling Holy Spirit!
