A MIRACLE HAPPENED TO ME TODAY!!! This is true and it happened today:
My Testimony – 9-8-02 Today the Lord Jesus Christ as Healer and Helper visited me. I am standing in awe, right now, tears of joy and gratitude running down my face, that MY LORD should visit me – let me tell you what happened. He is good, folks, and He is real – He is a Person and He is awesome. Words cannot describe.
As some of you might know, for the past 11 months I have suffered from a very severe, extremely painful rectal condition that just has not been healed. I have had prayer, etc., but lately have had to rely on strong painkillers and a very restricted diet to get some kind of relief. There has been none, and I have really been suffering. But this is not a complaint — this is all background.
Well the time came the other day when I said, Lord is this it? And He seemed to tell me in my spirit that, yes, the time had come for surgery. Nothing else has worked, so I went ahead and made the appt. with the surgeon, the third I have had with him; he has always said, well, let’s try something else. NOTHING has helped so surgery is scheduled next Thursday on the 19th of this month. This is not bad surgery, not MAJOR surgery, but as you may know I am in my 60’s and as we age, our bodies don’t bounce back as quickly and of course there are always complications that can happen at any age, like staph and blood clots, arrythmia, etc., so surgery is not a fun thing, not a thing to be taken lightly at any time. But this is still background.
In this extreme, severe painful state I have suffered every day for the past 8 months, every morning with about 3 hours of debilitation, where I am laid flat out from pain and have had to take narcotics for the last four months to get rid of that pain. Not a good thing! But this this is still background.
So picture me in this situation — nothing of course compared to the suffering of many others who have it MUCH WORSE than me with other conditions MUCH graver — but still enough to strike fear and trepidation in my heart at going to the doctor and having to undergo another digital rectal examination. The last time it hurt so bad, I cried. Carol, the nurse can remember that and said she felt so sorry for me. I apologized for crying but it hurt so bad. They were very nice and understood but needless to say, this morning I was very, very much in dread – but knowing of course that the doctor had to examine me and I couldn’t complain and tell him not to, for heaven’s sakes.
I had been praying of course, calling out to the Lord in my mind, asking Him to be merciful to me, to lift me out of this and help me. I arrived into the exam room and had a few minutes to wait for the Doctor. It was there as I sat with my head in my hands in anguish and dread that a calm came over me – no kidding – it was like a lovely cloud settling on me and I was able to relax. Then I began thinking about the Lord Jesus and how dreadfully it must have hurt Him to have those nails pounded into His hands and His feet; I wept and told Him to give me just a little bit of that grace He must have had as he let US (yes, you and me, we are human you know) pound those awful things into Him, Our God and Savior and that if He could do that for me and for us, I certainly could stand up to a momentary hurt from the Doctor that He had obviously provided to help heal my body.
Then THE MIRACLE STARTED. I climbed up on the exam table with a heavy heart and laid down and the Doc started to examine me. I knew he was doing the exam because I felt a touch. The nurse said, Does that hurt? And I said NO IT DOESN’T HURT ONE BIT; IN FACT I CAN’T FEEL ANYTHING!!!! DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT MEANT – I COULD NOT FEEL ANYTHING, HONEST. THE EXAM FELT LIKE A FEATHER BRUSHING OVER MY SKIN, I COULD NOT BELIEVE THIS AND I JUMPED OFF THAT TABLE, PRAISING MY LORD, TOLD THE DOCTOR ABOUT THE MIRACLE, THANKED HIM, THANKED THE NURSE, TESTIFIED TO THE OFFICE PEOPLE as I made arrangement to schedule the surgery.
The LORD JESUS HAD VISITED ME IN THAT DOCTOR’S OFFICE AND TAKEN AWAY MY PAIN DURING THE EXAM TIME!!!!
OH, FOLKS, PRAISE HIS NAME, HE IS MIGHTY AND GOOD; HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER; THOUGH HE SLAY ME, I MUST SAY WITH JOB, YET I WILL TRUST IN HIM! THERE IS NO ONE WORTHIER OR BETTER TO TRUST WITH MY LIFE AND MY FATE. THANK YOU MY GOD! MY TIMES AND MY LIFE ARE IN YOUR HANDS. YOU ARE MIGHTY AND JUST.
AND HE ACTUALLY VISITED ME, A NONE-ENTITY IN THIS VAST UNIVERSE, AND YET ONE THAT MUST BE IMPORTANT TO HIM.
AND THAT MEANS YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO HIM, TOO.
God bless you for reading this and listening to my testimony. Scripture tells us that when we receive the bounty of the Lord, we must tell it in the midst of the people. That’s what I am doing!
