This week something really "Incredible" happened to me. Maybe I should start at the beginning.........
About a year ago I went to see the doctor and they sent me for an ultrasound of my thyroid. They have always said they think something is wrong with it because it is enlarged. But, nothing ever shows in the blood work. So I went to have the test. They said there was nodules but they were so small they couldn't test them. Wait a year and come back. So now the year has went by and I had another ultrasound. The call comes from the Dr. telling me they don't like what they have found, it doesn't look good, and I need to see a specialist. They did say that where there used to be two or three small nodules there is now a growth of a considerable size. The appointment for the specialist was going to be in two weeks. I was a little nervous about the whole thing. I told some friends about it who are all Christians and they were praying for me during the time I was waiting to see the Doc. So the two weeks pass and I have the appointment. The Dr. tells me yes there is a growth. What I had before has now tripled in size on the left side. They made an appointment for me to have a biopsy. Well during this time the friends I had told about it were all praying that it would just be gone when I went to see about it. I thought this was a great idea. Having God take it out versus a surgeon taking it out seemed like it would be a lot less painful and a lot less stressful!! I was all for that. However I have to tell you that I was preparing in my mind for either way. I did believe God could take it out but I also know that He doesn't always do those things.
So the day comes for me to go the hospital for the biopsy. I admit I was feeling really stressed. On my way there I just prayed that God would calm me down and just take the growth away. Just like He normally does, when I finally ask Him to help me, I'm calm! They checked me in, I laid down on the table and they said...We are going to check one more time before we start so we can see exactly where to put the needles in. The tech started doing the ultrasound and asked me what side it was supposed to be on. I told him the left side. Now remember, they have all the reports from before and the Dr.'s report. He said he was going to check the other side because maybe they wrote it down wrong. He said no it's not there either. He checked for a few minutes and said he couldn't find it. I told him well if you can't find it then it must have been a miracle because it was there. I could feel it on the inside and I could feel it with my fingers on the outside. It even made it hard for me to swallow. The tech went and got the doctor and he looked for it also. He asked me why I was there and I told him again. He said someone must have made a mistake because there was nothing there. I explained to him one more time that it was there before. They just told me that they were sure it was a mistake and that they weren't going to biopsy it because there wasn't anything to biopsy. They told me this about four times. They just kept saying that they wanted me to understand why they weren't doing it. I told them I understood that it was gone, it had disappeared. They kept saying it was a mistake. I couldn't convince them that it had been there before even though they had all the tests. But you know what? That's okay. I know it was there and I know where it went. What happened was a "MIRACLE". Look at Matthew 21:21 & 22
21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
God still does miracles today. All we have to do is pray and believe. He will always answer. Sometimes yes, sometimes no and sometimes later. But whatever the answer, it's the right one for us and His plan for our life.
God IS the Great Physician. He IS the Healer of our sicknesses. He wants to do things for us. He has already paid the price when he took the stripes on His back. The bible says:
Isaiah 53:4-5 (King James Version)
4.Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5.But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
God performed a miracle in my life!! He took the growth out. Praise God!!! I don't know if it was cancer or not. But you know what? It doesn't matter. What matters is that He took it out! People prayed and in faith believed and God answered!! WOW What a miracle. It is hard for me to even know what to say except,
PRAISE GOD!!! HE is GOOD!! HE is AWESOME!!
I feel like I don't even know how to thank Him enough for all that He has done for me in my life. All I can do is just live for Him everyday and tell everyone I can about Him. Really that's what He wants from all of us. To just be obedient and do what He asks of us. I believe that if you're a Christian that is what you need to do. It's what you are called to do. When the opportunity arises, take a chance, and tell everyone you can about the Lord. If your not a Christian you need to change that. You need to give God a chance. We are all sinners. The difference is that some of us have decided that we couldn't make it on our own. We asked Him to come into our heart and life and help us to live for Him. We are all just saved by His grace and mercy. It's nothing that we have done on our own. We all go through a lot in this life. Sickness, divorce, death, financial problems all kinds of things. It's nice to know that when you are going through things that there is always someone there that you can talk to. Someone that cares more than anyone else. He is never too busy to listen to you and to help you when you need Him. Make the choice right now to let Him help you through the rest of your life. You won't regret it. Just ask Him to come into your heart and forgive you of your sins. Talk to Him like you would talk to any friend. He will listen to you and help you. Then live for Him. Pray to Him everyday, read your bible and find a church. You'll never be sorry you did.
