Blessing Bits for Miracle Monday
Welcome to the first full week of 2015, brothers and sisters! It's our pleasure to kick off the first Miracle Monday in January with a special theme. This month, we're featuring the top 10 Blessing Bits from the Gospel News!
The following is from Sister Betty Azzinaro, Simi Valley Branch, CA.
I was getting out of a truck, and as I slid down off the high seat and landed on my feet, I felt a sharp pain shoot through me from my ankle to my shoulder. I was in much discomfort afterward, and pain medication didn't relieve the pain. My doctor took X-rays and I had no broken bones. He gave me more pain pills, but they didn't help much. The pain was very sore right on my hipbone. On June 24, 2012 I went to church, still enduring the pain. Before the meeting, Brother Sal Azzinaro anointed me. The meeting started, and as we were singing the hymn "He Touched Me," I felt like a warm ball was rolling out of my hipbone, and the pain stopped immediately. The Lord has always helped me with my needs and pains I've had through the years, but I never experienced a healing like this. Praise God and His Son Jesus!
From Brother John Straccia, Sterling Heights, MI
With blood pressure (BP) readings of 180+ over 120 my doctor said if you don't take these pills you will die. Taking the pills home, I agonized knowing that once taken, they would always be taken. That evening I prayed for God's healing and no pills. That night I awoke and was unable to sleep. I prayed for my healing when the Spirit stopped me, realizing I needed to pray for others. After praying all night I was awakened by the sun. Soon I went to the place where the bottle of pills was and asked God if there was any other way. I heard the Spirit then say, "You don't need them, I am here." Within a few weeks, returning to the doctor, my BP became normal. The doctor was happy until I showed him the full bottle of pills, not having taken one. After seven years, my BP is still 118 over 72. "...pray one for another, that ye may be healed" (James 5:16).
Baptism Miracles for February
Next month's Miracle Monday theme is baptism. Did you have an experience regarding your baptism? Something that prompted you to give your life to the Lord or perhaps a special confirmation at the water's edge? We're looking for any testimonies related to baptism in any way! Please share them with us.
