A miracle

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
Hey, just thought I would share this event to show how my faith had increased over a certain event in my life.

About 4 years ago (when I was 17) I discovered something on the side of my body, it looked to be a discolouration on my skin but was really itchy and flaky, a patch just a few shades darker than my normal skin tone, doctors couldn't really decipher what it was with certainty. Whatever it was it was about the size of a 20c peice. Anyway it grew and grew till it was about the 5 times the size to what I found it. It grew that much over a period of 3 and a half years. It would occupy my thoughts alot because something that was not meant to be there and that was not normal was sitting on the right side of my body. Doctors told me it might be a form of preliminary skin cancer because it grew in oddly similiar pattern. I was not allowed to treat it with anything until the skin specialists found out exactly what it was in case a reaction might happen with my skin. I was scheduled to have an appointment the specialists after exams in '09.

I came to a complete stop nearing the finals of my university exams. I said nothing will heal this, its been 3 and a half years; so I said the most simplest prayer to God, "God, please heal me of this thing. Have mercy upon me, a sinner, in the name of Chist. Amen". (That was the first time I had ever being vocal with God about it).

A week later after exams I came to casually check it (because I had to measure it every week for the specialists and record it in a notebook to help them with their diagnosis), checked, it wasn't there, thought to myself maybe I'm checking the wrong side, checked the left side of my body, then my right again, rubbed my eyes a few times. It was gone, no trace of it. This was about 5 months ago and still is no trace. My faith jumped a few miles ever since that because it showed me how intimate God really is, and cares about me with my small skin abnormalities even when He Himself had been scolded until His skin was in ribbons down His body for the sake of our sins.

Glory be to God Forever.

  • that is so neat! thanks to God.... the God who made the stars and sun can heal a skin trouble, when we humbly ask Him. He cares for us in the little things, too.

    praise God for this miracle, and your increase of faith! the Lord is our Shepherd, and Healer.
  • Glory to God forever and ever!

    If you have a miracle you want to share, please post! :) because I know that I am the last person on this earth that God would want to make a miracle for!  :D

  • with so many people including you in their prayers  Im actually surprised it came back; but then again, you expected it to....  But since it has demonstrated that it can subside, that tells you there is a remedy, and since the Lord is mightier than any dis-ease you must keep the faith, Jamey, because if it happens at all it is sure to happen again; maybe even permanently on one of these fine days.  My thoughts and prayers are with you daily, as Im sure many others are.  So expect a miracle  Be well.
  • Thats really nice

    Im in the medical field, that isnt by chance i can tell you that!

    Glory to God

  • Glory be to God forever and ever.

    I was wondering, try to meditate on it. like the color of it, the place where it was, why it got bigger.

    Like if that happened to me, I can think about it as it is my sins, with the color black, growing and growing everyday, hidden under my shirt where no one can see them but God...but once I pray, God can heal it and take them(my sins) all away.

    Everyone can look at it different or different event in their lives.

    Pray for me
  • Hey,

    A3anii, yeh of course I had that thought about that. It helped me understand alot of things, almost stands like a metaphor. I thought if this was a result of a disease on flesh; its almost identical to what happens with diseases of the spirit (like sin). But whilst we can see what happens to our skin for example and feel the pain of an aching stomach in order to see physicians and doctors, we cannot see what is happening to our spirits especially when we have spiritual lows, it could be dirty, it could have leprousy, it could be cold, could have a flu or could be even on its deathbed unless we come to God, the lover of our spirits, the creator of our spirits and the True Light through prayer, the scriptures, repentance and confession and Eucharist. Just because we don't see it doesnt mean it doesnt exist, in exactly the same way we cannot see infared light or UV light unless we use special technology.The thing is the spirit is eternal, the flesh is finite, better to spend more effort and time refining the spirit as it will last all eternity, way more than the flesh which doesnt last as long as we think.

    Well those are my thoughts about it anyway. Pslam 51 helped me see this:

    PSALM 51 (50)
    Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your
    loving-kindness; According to the multitude of Your
    tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash
    me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me
    from my sin.
    For I acknowledge my transgressions,
    And my sin is ever before me. Against You, You
    only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your
    sight—That You may be found just when You speak,
    And blameless when You judge.
    Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in
    sin my mother conceived me. Behold, You desire
    truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part
    You will make me to know wisdom. Purge me with
    hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be
    whiter than snow.
    Make me to hear joy and gladness,
    That the bones which You have broken may
    rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out
    all my iniquities.
    Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a
    steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away
    from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy
    Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
    And uphold me with Your generous Spirit.

    Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And
    sinners shall be converted to You. Deliver me from
    bloodguiltiness, O God, The God of my salvation,
    And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
    O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall
    show forth Your praise. For You do not desire sacrifice,
    or else I would give it; You do not delight in
    burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken
    spirit, A broken and a contrite heart—These, O God,
    You will not despise. Do good in Your good pleasure
    to Zion; Build the walls of Jerusalem. Then You
    shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
    With burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then
    they shall offer bulls on Your altar. Alleluia.

  • hey Selah, that was beautiful
