God's Speedy Response
Today's Miracle Monday is an answered prayer (with uncanny timing) that comes to us from Brett Rozzelle.
I woke up one morning with a great deal of pain in my mouth. When I looked in the mirror, my cheek was quite swollen. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with an abscess. I was given antibiotics for the infection. After a few days of taking the antibiotics, I still was in a lot of pain. The pain had increased to the point where I had to call out of work for a day.
While I was home from work, I called Brother Jerry Valenti and asked if I could come to his house to be anointed. The first thing I did was gross everyone out by showing them a photo on my phone of the infected area. (It was all white with a lot of pus.) I was then anointed for my condition, and then we sat down and began having a discussion.
Within two minutes, I was forced to interrupt the conversation because I noticed an unusual taste in my mouth. I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe what I saw. The abscess had burst and was draining! When it was done, I took another photo, and all of the white was gone, and the area had returned to its normal color.
By the next morning, my cheek was no longer swollen, and I was able to return to work without missing any more time.
This truly was a powerful testimony that I was eager to share with the congregation at the next Sunday meeting. The ministry, as well as the members of The Church of Jesus Christ, have always had a great way to show the power and evidence of what our God does for us, and I’m blessed to be able to add a testimony of my own!
Have You Ever Received a Speedy Response?
Does today's story remind you of a time in your own life when you prayed (or got prayer) and shortly after God's answer came (and you just couldn't chock it up to coincidence)? We'd love to hear about it and share it on a future Monday here on the Gospel Blog.
