Christian healing

Healing happens! I wanted a place to share the sweet stories of God's grace and power that people send to me. Lift up your heart with joy to the Lord! Rejoice, be glad, and praise God's wonderful works to the children of men.

Shoulder healed

We had a visitor to the church. He was a self-described atheist, very Bohemian in nature with a degree in Psychology and a belief in Buddism. He has lived a large life, with a lot of self hatred. He told me he currently works as a general handyman doing repairs and was having tremendous physical issues especially with his shoulders and knees. He had recently read a book entitled: “A Course In Miracles”, and said that it had led him to Christian Science.

I began by illustrating the two records of creation in Genesis, over and over until he seemed to understand that the mist of materiality (2nd chapter of Genesis) was obscuring his true identity as a perfect child of God (1st chapter of Genesis). We talked briefly after church and sometimes on the phone for a week or two expanding the concepts, and I tried to hold the perfect image of man for him during the week.

Then he told me that he was experiencing almost a full range of motion in his shoulders without pain for the first time in years. The progress physically has continued so that he can now work on his knees, and I continue to work trying to expand his views away from that of the materially mental, manacled man that he had accepted. Last night after Wednesday evening service, he told me that he had never felt God’s Love for him, but he had that morning!
