God’s Got My Back

Today’s Miracle Monday is a testimony of miraculous healing sent to us by Sister Dianne Maddox.

A few months ago, I found a lump on my back. I ignored it for a while, hoping it was nothing serious and would just go away. I was speaking to a sister who is a registered nurse, and the subject of my lump randomly came up.

She strongly encouraged me to see my doctor, which I did. The doctor said that it was a cyst that needed to be removed since this type of cyst could cause very serious issues. She referred me to a surgeon whom I saw later that week.

I prayed that God would take the cyst away and that I wouldn’t need surgery.

During the week, I could no longer feel the cyst, but I kept my appointment with the surgeon. The surgeon looked at my back and said there was nothing there and asked me if I had surgery. I said no, and he asked if I was sure because it looked like I did. Once again, I told him I had not had surgery. I said, “Maybe God took it!” after which he laughed a little.

The following Sunday, I wanted to shared what happened, so I asked the ministry if I could testify from the pulpit to make sure everyone could hear me. As I was testifying about this miracle in my life, a sister saw a glow around me and also saw the name of the church behind me flash and turn to white.

I believe the experience that our sister had wasn’t just for her and me. I believe it was given to her to show the power that God and His church have. I can’t help but wonder who am I that God looked past my shortcomings and chose to heal me.
