Healing in Your Hands: Christy Nockels

From Christy Nockels, via Chris Tomlin/FQ Worship.  “Healing in Your Hands” is the 5th song on the new CD from Passion called Passion Awakening. The CD was recorded live at Passion 2010. The following was written by Christy Nockels describing her journey in writing “Healing in Your Hands.”

Healing In Your Hands…

“Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all things we are made more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35 – 39

Several weeks ago I set out on the Glory In The Highest Christmas tour, ready to spend a few weeks of worship with great friends, celebrating the amazing season of Advent. I set out on the journey having just recovered from a terrible stomach virus that 11 of the 15 relatives at my parents house experienced first thing Thanksgiving morning! When I headed out on tour, I was so grateful that all of that was over and I was ready to get well and enjoy my travels…

First night in, we had rehearsals at a church in Florida and the next night would be the first concert. That evening, after dinner, an all too familiar pain in my stomach came over me. For most of the night, I kept my plight to myself, thinking surely this was just my stomach trying to get back to normal and it would be gone by morning. By morning though, I was in the local ER, writhing in pain! I stayed there most of the day and the tour left me behind in a hotel since they were only driving 150 miles or so to the next town. The next day, I arose and was able to rent a car and get to the next concert. Again, thinking, “whew…glad that’s over”…I sang that night, but as the night continued I found myself having to talk myself into staying on stage for the next song. I made it to the end and pretty much ran and collapsed on the bus in pain. This landed me back in the ER that night and the tour had to leave me, this time driving hundreds of miles away.
