In 2010 I was suffering from extreme pain when walking. I went for an MRI, which showed that the ligament from the upper spine was affected from L2 to L5. The doctor said that the condition started 10 years ago. He recommended an operation or else one day I would sit in a wheelchair. I was scared, so I went for an operation in 2010. I stayed in the hospital for about a week.
The operation wound healed well but the nerves from the back of my neck to my feet were affected. After the operation, I had no more pain, but I could no longer squat. Thereafter I joined the Lighthouse Evangelism Brisk Walking group to exercise, I was athletic in school but somehow, I always ended up the slowest. I realized that I had not yet mastered my walking technique. Frustrated, I cried out to God and called His name again and again, and suddenly, I heard an audible voice, saying, “Go for bone alignment”.
I went for Miracle Service that night and told a gospel lighter about my situation. After a short prayer, he asked me to go to the side and perform what I usually cannot do. Our captain, Catherine, came to test my walking, and she exclaimed that I was walking correctly! Next, she tested me on my hip rotation, and I was able to do it on the 2nd try as well!
In my next exercise with the Brisk Walking Group, I did better than before! But while we were doing cool-down exercises with a squatting movement, I remembered that I couldn’t do it previously and decided to try it. Praise God! I was able to squat as I did before!
I thank God for his mercy and grace, and for healing me. To God be the glory, amen!
