Bumps, Bruises, and Blessings

by | May 16, 2016 | Miracles | 1 comment


For today’s Miracle Monday, we’re sharing a testimony from Brother Jim Sgro. Enjoy!

When my son, Jimmy, was a young boy, he had an accident falling off his skateboard. He hit his head very hard and passed out. That night, when I got home from work, my wife, Lynda, told me what had happened. Jimmy had a small bump on his head, so I anointed him, and everything seemed to be all right.

The next day, I went to work and, during the day, Lynda called me and told me that the bump on Jimmy’s head had gotten bigger and that she was going to take him to the emergency room. I told her that I would meet her at the hospital.

Lynda said, “Why don’t you wait, and I’ll let you know if you need to come to the hospital after I get there.” Some time passed, and I continued to pray while still at work.

Then, I got the second call from Lynda. The hospital said the bump was getting larger and they were very worried and wanted to do a CT scan.

I left work immediately and said I would meet them at the hospital. While in the car, I was scared and prayed to the Lord. In my heart, I said the words, “Oh, Lord, not my son.” When I said those words, I heard the clear, audible voice of God speak to me in the car saying, “Why are you worried? I healed your son last night. Just go home.”

Instead of traveling to the hospital, I went straight home. When I got to my house, Lynda and Jimmy were pulling into the driveway at the same time. Lynda said the test was negative and that Jimmy was fine.

We praise God for the healing power of Jesus in our lives.

    Sin duda el gran poder de la oración, realizada con fe, puede lograr cualquier milagro. En estos tiempo, lo que mas cuesta es desarrollar la fe en lo que hacemos y pedimos. Felicitaciones por los artículos.
