I went for a run tonight in the wild misty rain that was blowing into Falmouth. Near the end of my run I noticed a bus shelter advert which said. Back pain? Spinal surgery.
It reminded me of 2010 where I was involved in a minor car crash which completely ruined my back. I had to take time off work and ended up changing jobs. I wasn’t in a good place for around 2 years during which time I took a youth group to Soul Survivor.
During one of the sessions we were encouraged to pray for one another. The youth prayed for my back and I felt a cool sensation run up and down my spine. It wasn’t an overnight healing but ever since they prayed I got better and now am back to 100%.
I still advise proper lifting technique and regular exercise but one thing remains.
God still heals and restores
Tonight seing the advert of spinal surgery reminded me of Gods goodness to me.
By his grace and love I am restored. By his stripes we are healed.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed”
