I was a Quality Assurance Specialist in the United States Air Force. Soon after retiring, I awoke one morning and was trying to get out of bed. I feel to the floor and could not get up. My wife asked “why are you down there?” I was taken to the doctor. He stated that I was paralyzed from the waist down and would probably never walk again.
I did not allow his words to discourage me, for I knew that God’s Word stated that by His stripes we are healed. After going to various hospitals for testing, it was determined that a blood clot was located at the end of my spine. I consented to having surgery for removal, yet I was not given much chance of walking again.
After surgery I was sent to a convalescent home for about thirty days. There I received therapy. I began to get some feeling in the lower part of my body. On my return visit to my surgeon, he ran to get other doctors, stating the marvels of surgery. I know and wanted them to know that this indeed was the Lord’s doing and it was marvelous in our eyes. I am yet praising God for having mercy on me and healing my body and adding years to my life and life to my years.
