Stories of a good God

Posts tagged ‘Foot healed’

“Pain leave now…” a flippant prayer answered instantly because…God is Good!

The last few weeks have been frantic … and the entire family have been stretched to accommodate more … hence, I love dinner times, especially  when they are quietly enjoyed by us, as a time to chat, laugh, bond and generally stop for a moment near the closure of a day …

Tonight, we were having dinner after another very busy day.  We were enjoying each other’s company around the dinner table .. telling each other what the day had held – there have been many, many triumphs and we were discussing these, when my daughter got off her father’s lap from a cuddle, went to sit on her chair, and as she did she started complaining of a really sore foot …

To be honest … I was irritated! 

I was not feeling really sympathetic, I wanted to feel sympathetic, but really I was feeling I just wanted an uninterrupted dinner and so I felt mildly irritated at the complaint … I did not want to have to deal with another “issue” …

I sat down at the table, put my hand on her arm and said somewhat ungraciously …

“Pain leave now … in Jesus Name” …

To my surprise and delight … my daughter instantly smiled and said:

“Mummy … as soon as you touched my arm and said “pain leave now” the pain left” …

I said “oh … that’s good” feeling somewhat guilty for being irritated and a bit shocked since I felt nothing as I did it.  in fact it was a rather flippant prayer … more out of irritation than anything.  I had felt I had to do something and so pray I did … without much expectation at all … and the pain had instantly gone!

At bedtime I was tucking her in and started to pray with her.  She lay there in the soft light and said “Jesus really is amazing you know … “

She then went on to recount all the amazing things He was doing in her life … and went over many of the amazing things He had done in her life …

I sat and listened in awe and said “yes, He truly is amazing”

She then said to me “He really does love me you know …” and I agreed … and, as I sat and listened, I thought to myself …

God is Good!
