Lorna has just come home from work and has started to tell me about her day, she is pretty excited…. here is the story in her words.
Today I was
working at Nexus Church on reception;
I received a phone call from a lady called Fran.
She said, “I am here to get some food from Nexus Care, a food parcel and I don’t know where to go.”
I said to her,” drive up to the top car park and you will see some chairs, park there and I will meet you out the front and take you down to Nexus Care.”
She got out of her car and walked over to me… clearly in a lot of pain and dragging her leg.
She said, “I am Fran,” I could see she was not a Christian and was really struggling to walk.
I said, “what’s going on with your leg Fran?”
She said, “I
have a spur in my heel and arthritis in my back which goes down my leg.”
I said,” Would you mind if I pray for you Fran?”
She said,” yes, that’s ok.”
I bent down and prayed and asked Jesus to heal her and to take away her pain.
I felt heat go through my hands; I said to Fran,” can you feel that heat?”
She said,” yes I can.”
I told her to try and walk.
It was then…I saw a miracle begin before my eyes.
Fran was in shock and disbelief she kept saying,
“GET OUT OF HERE – GET OUT OF HERE – HOW CAN THAT HAPPEN,
I COULDN’T WALK BEFORE?”
She said,” I
couldn’t do this; I was in so much pain, now I’m walking normally!”
There was still a sore spot so I said,” lets pray again.”
I felt something physically move in her heel… she did too.
She was completely set free from pain and could walk normally..!!
She was so excited looking at her reflection [as she walked] in the glass doors of the auditorium saying;
“GET OUT OF
HERE – GET OUT OF HERE!”
She walked and walked and walked and walked some more, up and down, up and down!!
It was so exciting; I was amazed myself.
She told me she just came from the doctor’s and asked him to increase her pain medication!!
I said, “You won’t be needing that any-more.”
I said,” God loves you so much Fran,” she became overwhelmed and started to cry.
I said,” today you got a lot more than your food parcel, I bet you weren’t expecting that,” and she cried happy tears as God was working on her heart.
“But how did this happen?”
I said,” it’s a miracle, Jesus has healed you. He loves you so much Fran.”
I left her with the Nexus Care team and she had to fill out a form and it asked if there were any disabilities which would stop her doing things and she started to think and began to write,
I have arthritis in my back and then said,
“NO… I used to have arthritis in my back,” and smiled the biggest smile.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw her carry a huge carton filled with food to her car, I almost ran over to offer assistance and then thought, no she’s fine, she’s been healed.
A member of the staff at Nexus Care also carried a carton for her filled with delicious fresh fruit & vegies.
She came over to me after Fran had driven off and said,
“Lorna, Fran had crutches in her car, isn’t God amazing?”
We have such a lovely Jesus!!!!
Praise him! Praise him! Praise him!
