Neck Injury - March 2022
A few years ago I was on a trip and my whole hand inexplicably swelled up from carrying the hand luggage. I went to the doctor when I got back home and he said it was due to a pinched nerve in my back neck from a car accident when I was younger. He basically said that I would have to live with it and it might cause neck pain and decreased mobility as I got older. Of course, I went to God in prayer. He said there was nothing I could do about it so I was not to worry, just continue to pray, do my exercises, and that He would take care of me. Little did I know just how He was going to take care of it but it was one of the most outrageous miracles I’ve ever heard of, and it happened to me! I faithfully followed the Lord’s instructions. As a result, He kept me out of pain and my hand from swelling again. One day last year, while we were on our beginning-of-the-year fast at Liberty Life Center, I went to the park with my grandchildren and daughter-in-law. I was pushing them on the swings and making faces at them. In the process, I lost my balance and got in the way of the swing. It was a new design on the swing with a plastic piece that comes out in front of the child. That plastic piece came forward and hit me with infinite precision directly on my chin. I could hear the grind as my skull was moved into the proper position for my neck. It sounded like half an inch (or more) and I had excruciating pain from the base of my skull into my ears. My daughter-in-law looked at me while I stood motionless, blinking, wondering if I needed to go to the emergency room. After a few dazed minutes, the pain subsided. I moved my neck this way and that, and then I moved it in every way! Right away I could tell that I had a freedom I didn’t have before with absolutely no pain! Praise the Lord, I am healed! And I stayed healed! No problems at all! I don’t even need to do the exercises anymore! I always like to tell people that God will go to ridiculous lengths to heal them (like Jesus taking the whip marks and dying on a cross) even when they least expect it—so you might as well expect it!
