I want to take the time to tell you about a few miracles I personally experienced. This is the first one. You may think it vain of me to put this all out here like this, the only reason I am writing this is the feeling that someone else can be helped by this story.
Birth, Miracle I personally experienced
When I was born I was 3 months premature, this age of birth most often results in the babies lungs being under developed. Now beginning with my lungs being under developed, I was 3 months old when I contracted pneumonia too. This with the under developed lungs was a disastrous combination, needless to say I could have died.
My mom had 2 other sick, very sick people at home at the time. She was really trying to cope with all these things going on when she thought I was getting better, rather than worse, and that’s why I had stopped coughing.
My pastor on his way past our house felt the Lord say, just stop in here something’s not right. He came in and picked me up. He said I was cold and blue. In Zimbabwe in the middle of summer, it’s almost impossible for a body to be cold. As temperatures soar to 40+degrees celsius.
My pastor, a very down to earth, lovely man. He really loved the Lord and worked his whole life for His people(God’s). Took me in his hands, lifted me up to the Lord and prayed. He said it was a miracle and I started breathing and came back to full health.
Naturally he and I enjoyed a life-long closeness not really understood by most. In fact when I was a teenager even I didn’t understand it. Our family had moved away from that town to live hundreds of kilometers away. I hadn’t seen him in many years but my parents would always tell me about him. How he was and how his family was. I never really could understand that. He would always tell me about the miracle of my being healed.
Only when I saw him face to face again, and, he recounted that story for me himself, that I remembered why we were so close and we enjoyed each other so much.
I hope this helps someone out there, if you have your own stories of miracles it would be lovely if you shared them with me and let me know if I can share them to encourage others, much love!
If you feel, as I often did when I was struggling with life itself, that’s great for you but how would that affect my life. There are, few to no, miracles I have personally experienced. Believe me God has them all in-store for everyone. Look for Him. Call to Him, and He will answer you. He promised in His word. Please contact a local bible-believing, God-fearing church. They will be more than willing to help you find His love and acceptance. If they make you feel at all unwelcome, unloved or unaccepted, they are not who they say they are, try another church. We are all human, many people make mistakes in their efforts. Please try another church and pray ask God to show you the right place and time. He will, as He did for me.
Other Miracles I personally experienced
I think I will weekly update this list of miracles I personally experienced. There have been many miracles at various different stages of my life. I will list some and come back to this list and write the details as necessary.
- My hips were healed.
- My back was healed at church one day.
- 2010 car accident.
- The miracle of my daughters birth.
One of my favourite authors, Pastor John Piper has a full sermon on miracles and said the following regarding the subject:
Miracles surround our lives, physical miracles that we can see, hear, touch, and taste. But what is the point of those physical gifts and visual miracles that abundantly surround our lives? It’s a theme Pastor John took up in a sermon earlier this year titled, “God’s Peculiar Glory: How We Know the Bible Is True,” a message delivered in Houston.
