I’m so overwhelmed by the mercies of God. What a year this has been and so much to celebrate! Everything I am able to is because of His Amazing Grace! Praise God!
Towards the end of 2010, I was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition with no medical cure and I had multiple issues with my back and legs; all from a fall at work. There were many moments during that struggle when I wondered if I could ever live life without being confined to bed on so many medications.
But God miraculously healed me in an instant on January 23, 2011! No medications, no treatment, no pain ever since! My health and life have been completely restored!
My family doctor, medical specialists, and many of my friends who witnessed the progression of the nerve condition and injuries, and what my life is like now after my healing, are amazed over my complete recovery. (I’m still in shock over all that I’m able to do!).
The Search For Answers
The one topic that has come up repeatedly in my conversations with friends following my healing is the existence of God. Friends of mine who are either on the fence about their belief in God or uncertain about faith altogether have been at a complete loss for words over my healing.
Lots of questions like:
Who is God? Is God real? Does God really care about me? Where is God in my situation? Can God really resolve my hopeless situation?
And so I would like to share with you what I have shared with them:
Absolutely – without a shadow of doubt – God exists; and He lives. He loves us so much.
He is a Holy God, and humanity was separated from Him as a result of sin and disobedience. So God sent His only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for us and redeem all of humanity from the consequences of sin – the greatest consequence being that we would have otherwise been eternally separated from God.
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, we can now boldly approach God’s Throne of grace and mercy and have a relationship with Him.
For everyone who has questions about who God is and whether He exists, the answer is that you can find out this very day!
God answers prayer. Prayer is nothing more than having a conversation with Our Heavenly Father. All you have to do is ask. There is nothing that is impossible for God.
If you want to know whether God exists – whatever your circumstances and/or situations may be – all you need to do is ask! It’s as simple as that.
You can ask in your own words, or pray this simple prayer:
God, I want to grow in my understanding of who You are. Please reveal who You are to me and speak to my heart. I want to know You and experience Your Love. Show me Your Power. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Believe that this prayer will be answered with all your heart, and God will reveal who He is to you as He has in my life and in that of my family.
If you are open to acknowledging – like my friends have – that you too are on this search for answers, please feel free to connect with us below or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and share your name. My husband, Quinton, and I would love to pray with you.

The best resource that I could ever recommend to you that has helped me in indescribable ways is the Bible.

O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. (Psalm 30:2)
