For a couple years back in the early 2000s, I suffered from stomach pains everyday. It did not seem to matter what I ate or did not eat, I would have pains that progressed through the day. Trying to sleep at night was the worst! Sometimes eating a snack sent me to my bed. I would stay standing on the floor while bending my top half onto the bed because it was more comfortable than fully standing or lying down! I went to the Doctor and was prescribed a antacid that had to be taken everyday one hour before eating. It helped but I was only in my early twenties and stubbornly thought I was way too young to need a pill everyday just to eat without pain. So that stopped even before my sample pack was done.
Deciding to deal with the pain, it just became part of my life. I ended up figuring out that the pain was lessened if I did not eat anything past 5pm. That is until one night at Bible study with friends and I mentioned that my stomach was hurting and could not eat. One of my friends said, "You've been having stomach issues for a while, do you want us to pray over you?" I said yes so all of them gathered, anointed my head with oil (a symbol of the Holy Spirit) and laid hands on me while praying for my healing. After that, my long struggle with that relentless stomach pain was GONE before I reached my car to go home that night! I have not felt it since and it's been over a decade! Praise God for His grace and mercy on us through His Son Jesus!
Now you can scoff in disbelief, thinking that it was just a coincidence, but those that knew of my pain back then realize something miraculous happened. God healed me that night! I am sharing this because I do not give testimony nearly enough. God loves us so much! I am one of many living proofs!
