Just went up to Joel for our ‘goodnight’ visit. Met in the ward by some very happy nurses….here is the story.
Joel had woken enough to eat his dinner. While eating (being spoon fed by the nurse) she thought he was looking a little uncomfortable, this is what happened.
Nurse: “Joel what is the matter? Talk to me Joel”

Joel: “my leg”

At this the nurse nearly fell over in shock!

Nurse: “what is wrong with your leg?”

Joel: “it’s painful”

Nurse: “which one?”

Joel: “my left one”

The nurse continued to feed him after moving his leg…then asked
Nurse: “Joel for pudding do you want custard or jelly and ice cream?”

Joel: “both”

He got both.
When we got there the nurse said to Joel “mum is here, say hi to mum”

Joel: “hi mum”

Mum says, “say hi to Dad”

Joel: “hi Dad”

Then he drifted off to sleep.

In the nurse’s words “it is a miracle!”
Much excitement. Thank Jesus for answering our prayers.

Praise God, He is SO good. We keep praying, believing and trusting for Joel's total return to perfect health. It has been said that miracles are instantaneous, healing takes longer. So keep your faith up for however long it takes. Stand on the promises of God, make positive confessions of your faith, and draw your strength and courage from Him daily. God bless you all
