In April of this year I found out that I had a tumor in my stomach that needed to be removed. Then after the surgery I had to stay in the hospital for five days to recover. Praise God that the tumor was non-cancerous! My husband and I started to prepare ourselves for the bill that we knew was coming. I called the hospital to ask them how much was out to insurance. The total bill came to just over sixty thousand dollars. We knew that it was going to be high but that was more than we were thinking. We prayed about it and we were continuing to trust the Lord. He is the one who provides, it is a promise! I am so happy to shout it from the rooftops he did provide! After all the bills came back from insurance we found out that we had nothing left to pay. I even called to make sure it wasn’t a mistake. We stand in awe of the way that the Lord has provided for us!
For several years I have had severe pain in the joints in my hands. The pain also caused weakness to the point that there were days when I could not even grip the lid on a bottle of pop tight enough to open it. Even picking up small a item was very painful if not sometimes impossible. I work in an auto body shop so I use my hands constantly and many days I would have to take several Aleve to make doing my job tolerable. Two Sundays ago I came to Lifepointe like any other Sunday other than my hands were bothering me more than normal. Through out the service I found myself rubbing the joints in my hands several times. I thought to myself as I always have, Its just the price of getting older and being so hard on my hands my whole life. I never thought the pain would go away and sadly I never prayed for it to go away. Near the end of worship Drew prayed for healing and in that moment the pain instantly disappeared. I have full strength back in my hands and the pain is completely gone. Jehovah Rapha!!!
