God created our minds and bodies, which medical science seeks to understand. A health professional’s work is in understanding and aiding the healing God’s wonderful creation. Here’s a secret – health professionals don’t heal anything. The body, mind, and spirit that God gave you are all that will ever be able to heal you. A healthcare professional’s work is not healing you, it is mitigating the things which are hurting you, things of this Earth, so that you can heal yourself. Some of those things are obvious, like in an accident. Others are more subtle, such as with diet or mental health. In all cases, the only way forward is with the patient’s help and the healing power of God. Faith in God and medical science are natural complements, it is through science that the beauty of God’s work in creating each one of us is revealed.
