Today’s Miracle Monday comes from Sister Naomi Hopkins from the Pinetop-Lakeside Branch. It happened a few years back but was related in a recent testimony meeting.
I was losing sight in one eye, and my doctor said I had to have surgery. He assured me that it would be painless and that it would help me see better out of that eye.
I had the surgery, but afterward, it was most definitely not painless. My eye hurt terribly. What’s worse, my eyesight did not improve. It actually got worse until I became totally blind in that eye. It was very discouraging to me, and I had to learn to live life with only one good eye.
A while later, I started losing sight in my other eye — the only one I had left!
My doctor told me I should have the same surgery on this eye, again assuring me that it should be painless and result in improved eyesight. I didn’t want to have the surgery, knowing what happened last time, but my eyesight was getting so bad that I decided to go ahead with it.
After the surgery, my eye started to hurt, just as the other one had after the last surgery. I was scared that the same thing was going to happen and I’d be blind in both eyes.
Brother Emil Palensar drove to my house to anoint me. During the prayer, I felt the pain go away. I started to cry hard. After the prayer, I stood up and praised Jesus, crying, “I know it’s healed! The pain is gone!”
Sure enough, the sight in that eye improved, just as it should’ve. I can see out of that eye, and I’m so grateful to the Lord for healing me and letting me keep my sight.
