This is a bit different than my ordinary posts…but I felt compelled to share a story…and to say thank you.
I wanted to pass on a huge praise report!
I was to have surgery yesterday morning for a growth found in my leg ….it had become badly infected in December and I’ve been on multiple courses of antibiotics. The infection was severe and stubborn. And it had set my entire body into a state of chaos. At its worst the growth was as big as a man’s hand and deeply imbedded in my thigh. I have been greatly blessed at all the prayers that have been said for my healing. And I had received anointing of the sick twice. Yesterday morning before surgery I told the nurse that others had been praying, and I didn’t think I needed to have surgery because I felt that the growth was gone. I am usually not that bold, but I had such a confident spirit. I’ve never had anything like this happen before, and it was as if the words just came out with conviction. She looked at me a bit like I was crazy and told me she would get the surgeon. He came in immediately and I told him the same thing…others had been praying for me and I felt that the growth was gone. He said he wanted to examine me, and as he did his eyes got big and he said, “you are right….it is gone!” He seemed shocked as he had been monitoring it all along. I smiled and told him God is good and there is power in prayer. He left the room with a real skip in his step and I heard him go tell others the news.
God IS good and cares about all the details in our lives….yes even something like a growth in our leg. I pray this story blesses each of you…there were many known and unknown who shared they were praying for me through this blog, and perhaps others in the silence of their hearts as I shared on my blog that I was “under the weather”. I had other prayer friends” locally and across the states praying as well. I believe God smiles on His children coming together in prayer for a common intention. We can never discount the power of our prayers or think they are insignificant. God is the God of all details…and His love longs to free us from anything not of Him. I may be the recepient of this miracle that kept me from the trial of surgery and the subsequent recuperation…but anyone who prayed…known or unknown…too are a part of this story, and from the bottom of my heart I say thank you.
Our faith need only be as big as a mustard seed…God takes care of the rest. To BELIEVE is to allow God to act in our lives and in the lives of others. And as for me….I truly heard those words of Jesus echoed in my heart and I pray they are branded there so I may never forget…”Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.” Mark 5: 34
“I will always hope in you and add to all your praise. My mouth shall proclaim your just deeds, day after day your acts of deliverance, though I cannot number them all. I will speak of the mighty works of the Lord. O God, I will tell of your singular justice.” Psalm 71: 14-16
Amazing story, thank you for sharing, May God bless you with continued good health.

And have you ever seen how very little a mustard seed is? All God asks of us is such a little bit and He takes over! God Bless you.
Great story and praise God!
Thank you eof737….God is good…and heals today just like over 2000 years ago. Blessings!
Thank you my dear Sister J for sharing that wonderful healing from God and like you have experienced the same, I was Miraculously healed of two life threatening illnesses which are Medically documented although Doctors have no explanation how they suddenly disappeared and there have been a few other healings over the years as well, and a few signs and wonders witnessed by those close to me and not possible to be done or explained by man, so are not counterfeit . I am not Pentecostal and they were something I did not seek for, although Christians were praying for me …. do I think I’m more worthy then others, no in many ways I have sinned greater then anyone I know personally but I believe The Lord knows what we can handle and gives us the strength to endure and He knows what we need.
I am still disabled with a condition I was born with thankfully it has progressed slowly but I’m content in knowing I’m being upheld, and with every part of me I do not want to hurt my Lord or anyone else again in anyway, I Love God so much and I know this is only a fraction of how much He Loves me and I have deep Joy in my heart even if I’m not always happy clappy and so I also sometimes have a tear in my eye, but I know without a doubt my Spiritual Husband Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour will never forsake or abandon me as others have done…. I wash His feet daily and anoint them with perfume, not because I have sinned greatly over the years and I’m trying to make amends but just to bring Him Joy.
Where am I now… Philippians 3:12-14 but I press forward and will one day like Paul and many others be able to say 2 Timothy 4:7-8
Christian Love Anne
What a beautiful comment Anne…thank you for gracing us with this. And perhaps my favorite line is….”just to bring Him joy”:. Imagine if all we did we did for Him….Just to bring Him joy. Joy is such a misunderstood word isn’t it? It’s not the happy clappy that you mention but that deep abiding peace within…that peace that surpasses all understanding….that contentment you speak of in knowing that we are upheld. Blessings, Blessings, Blessings!
Thank you, from the heartofj, what a wonderful witness to Gods healing hand at work, you have a great testimony to tell now, I have seen similar wonderful healings in Anne`s life. There are some who say miracles are not for these times ?? I cant believe that after your story.
Maybe that’s the problem Ron? We all have forgotten that Jesus still heals today just as he did over 2000 years ago…we have become sof miracles. But they happen, as you have witnessed yourself. God is still pouring forth His healing touch! Have a blessed weekend.
Thanks for sharing how the Lord healed you. Your testimony gives others faith to stand for their healing. Jesus heals and does miracles today. He loves us, is alive and moves on our behalf. Praise God!
