How Healing Happens It has been said that time heals all things. That just is not so. Many people never reach acceptance. For people of faith, a more accurate way to understand how healing comes about is – God will heal us in God’s time, if we are willing to live in reality and to walk in faith. Our responsibility on the journey of grief is to find that willingness so that we might, with God’s help, experience the grace to embrace the changed reality of our lives.
