It is hard for me to know where to begin,
since there has been so much that God has shown me, and revealed to me,
over the years. However, the first miracle that God showed me, changed
Back in the late 1980s, I had a lady that
worked with me, who had three children. She was also a very good
My friend became very ill. The doctors
told her it was a stomach flu. After several days of this, and not
having any improvement, she was taken to the hospital where test after
test was done, until it was discovered that she had lost 6 pints of blood,
and that she had stomach cancer. I was blown away. How could
this happen to such a young woman.
God, and Believing
I had a line to God, and I knew He was
real, so I began to pray for her. I kept asking God to heal her.
Even though the world kept saying it could not be done, I knew that I served
a Living Loving God and He wanted us to commune with Him about everything.
So why could He not heal my friend of her cancer?
I remember her being in the hospital,
and going to visit her. I kept telling her to keep her Faith, because
I was praying to God for a healing, and I believed that He would hear me.
I tried to get anyone that would listen
to pray. Most people just looked at me like I was out of my mind,
but a few would listen and encourage me. I tried to get the pastors
in the area to help me pray, but again, I felt that it was just me and
I kept telling my friend that it was OK,
God was going to heal her. I had never had this feeling before, but
I knew what I knew, and God was going to do what He promised, and what
I was praying for: A miracle, a healing, and for her to be cancer free.
My God is big and He can do anything that we Trust Him for.
to Build my Faith
I remember telling everyone what God was
going to do for my friend. That I was praying for a miracle.
I never strayed from my prayers, and looking to God for what He was going
to do. It was just me and my friend, and anyone who would say they
would pray with me, to believe that God was going to do this.
As my friend was growing weaker and weaker
from the loss of her blood, I was scared, but sure that God was still there
I am sure I had doubts many times, and
sank low, but God would always give me what I needed to believe.
My friend needed blood, and her husband
did not want her to have just anyoneís blood, so he gathered together anyone
he knew that would give blood for his wife. I was tested, and I had
my friendís blood type. I would have given her all 6 pints that she
needed, but that was not possible, so I gave a pint of blood, for her.
God knows that His children are weak, and
that they need Him. I probably was really growing weak in my faith,
and I began to ask God for a sign that He was really going to heal my friend.
I had no idea how it would happen, but God always comes through for His
Through all of this, I know that I had
doubts, but God would always give me just what I needed at the right time.
As I went to visit my friend at the hospital,
she was getting ready for surgery in the next few days, and was receiving
the blood that she needed before the surgery. A nurse was leaving
the room as I came in, and said to my friend, "you have a GLOW."
She asked the nurse, what bag of blood she was being given at the time,
and it was mine. Praise GOD. That was all I needed to continue
to stand in my FAITH, as GOD in His special way said, this is your confirmation,
and your friend is healed. I was flying. GOD is AWESOME, and
we need to know that.
Perspective: It's Bad
[worldly "tunnel" vision is always
limited, because it ignores what God sees]
The day of the surgery, her husband, children
and myself gathered in the waiting room. I went to the hospital cafeteria
for something. I ran into a nurse friend of mine. (I have known
her since she was a little girl, and I trust her.) She pulled me
aside, and told me that she had seen my friend's charts, and that it was
bad. They had only given her 3 months to live. They were going
in to clean her up as best they could, so she could get her affairs in
order, and she would be out of here.
I looked at her with a boldness from my
GOD, because it could have only come from GOD, and I said, "I am
sorry, but my God has told me different. So in just a few hours,
after the surgery, I will run up the stairs, because the elevators cannot
carry me fast enough, to tell you what MY GOD HAS DONE."
I went back to the waiting room to be with
my friend's husband and children, and we all stayed together until we could
hear from the doctors. I know that it was several hours that passed.
Finally, the doctor did come in.
He told us that he did not understand it, and that it had to be a miracle,
but that my friend was going to be fine. She would require no Radiation
or Chemotherapy, but that she was going to be fine. Praise GOD, Amen!!!!!!
Her husband looked at me with tears and
said, "You knew!! How did you know???" I said, "GOD told
We serve such an awesome God, yet we do
not look to Him for the little things in life, so how can He possibly show
us the big things?
It has been 19 years since my friendís
miracle, and she is such a pretty, healthy lady. She has had nothing
but healing love and joy.
