God can do ALL things!

By Abigail Samuel

To say that the past two months have been challenging and  trying for me would be an understatement. I had a migraine that persisted for 21 days. They termed it migrainosus, it was quite debilitating, and as a result I had not been able to attend school, or do much of anything. I had been in and out of emergency rooms at Sick Kids, Centenary, and North York General including many appointments with various doctors and specialists. The migraine I was getting came with a light aura, dizzy spell, left side numbness and severe headaches. The only treatment that seemed to work was IV treatments with strong meds. I still remember when the migrainosus ended; it was a Friday and we celebrated! However, within two days I started having severe stomach pain, with headaches also flaring up at times. My parents put me on a special diet and gave me other medications prescribed by the doctors. Despite me carefully following the diet and taking all these medications for more than three weeks, my stomach pain didn’t get any better, it was actually getting worse.

The Friday before last at Youth, the pain in my stomach was at about 8 out of 10 and my headache was at about 7 out of 10.  Everyone stretched out their hands and prayed. As they prayed, I felt electricity running through the left side of my body (where it would normally be numb due to the migraine), and I felt a huge hand on top of my head. I also felt the warmth of God’s presence. At first, the pain in my stomach went away and then my headache was gone. Last Wednesday, I was able to go to school in person, normally I get really bad headaches from the lights and noise at school, however, I was able to get through the day without headache or stomach ache. I want to praise and thank God for this incredible healing. God can do all things. This healing is a sign and a wonder. We serve an awesome God! He is the same yesterday, today and forever. I also want to thank everyone who has been praying for me.  To God Be All the Glory!
