30 Days of Faith: Day 13
It was thirty five years ago and I had just given birth to my fourth child. Her father was an abusive drunk so I was going it alone. When she was a month old she started having problems. I walked the floor with her day and night. She screamed all the time.
The first thing on TV in the morning was Praise the Lord show (before satellite) and I was so frustrated that I couldn’t wait to turn it on. Also the last show on at night was Praise the Lord. I wasn’t a real believer but I followed that show every day and night.
At first my doctor told me it was my nerves, but finally when she was six weeks old he sent her to a specialist (she had gone down to five pounds).
The doctor found four major birth defects and told me she would need several major operations.
I called those people from TV. They led me to the Lord and then she asked me what I could believe for? I told her that I could believe for no surgery. She prayed that way and then prayed for me. Such a peace and comfort came over me.
Moments later the doctor came in and said they needed to wait until she was stronger to perform the first operation (Praise God). They put cereal in her formula to thicken it so it would stay down in her stomach. She had to sit up at all times in a car seat. They sent her home.
When she went back at six months her heart had repaired itself. Her stomach was working properly.
Her bones were not growing properly and he was worried about that and her kidneys were not working right but she had improved.
Over all it took about a year and a half for everything to be healed but she didn’t need to have major surgery. God was so good.
Through my daughter’s healing my entire family was saved. I have had many wonderful miracles but that has to be the greatest.
