Six weeks ago our 3 year old son fractured his foot. Today I was at the doctor having his foot re-x-rayed. The report said it is “well healed”. Our neighbor, an orthopedic doctor compared the x-rays from 6 weeks ago to now. He is amazed how it’s completely healed, and even more amazed that our son didn’t have a cast on his foot for 6 weeks and there isn’t even any indication that it was ever broken! Praise the Lord! We were able to share our son’s testimony with the orthopedic doctor; telling him about how he had asked Pastor Sarah Marie to pray on his “boo boo foot” and within 4 days he was walking like nothing happened. Completely healed!
God is so faithful!
About two years ago my family and I had noticed that I had scoliosis. At first it was no big deal. As time went on I noticed a lot of pain and the way my body was deforming. My family & I went to a doctor in Florida who said the condition could get where it would crush my heart and lungs and I would die from internal bleeding. Last year I went to another doctor, this time in Michigan. I had an x-ray taken. My back had a 52 degree turn in it, which had increased a lot within a year. While we were at that doctor, he said that people no longer did spinal correction and I thought I would be in pain for the rest of my life. I thought I knew how I was going to die…and I had even had suicidal thoughts because it would hurt so bad I thought dying would be easier. After some time, one of the leaders prayed and the next day a doctor showed up who was certified to do the surgery and would do it for me. While I was happy that God had sent someone to fix it, I still had pain. Last night at Troy campus, the pain was unbearable. A young girl from TURN Youth Ministry offered to go up to the stage with me to get prayed over for it…and it worked. I cursed the pain, thanked God a thousand times and I cried…A LOT. I was overwhelmed with great relief and knew everything was going to be okay. Today there still is no pain.
I wanted to share my market place testimony as Pastor Sarah Marie had encouraged us to minister out in the stores!
The owner of the dry cleaners that I do business at was going into the hospital for tests on her throat.
I asked if I could pray for her. She leaned toward me over the cash register counter and I laid hands and prayed on her for healing. Two weeks went by and I went to pick up my dry cleaning and she said to me, “you prayed over me, my doctor said the lump is gone!” Praise the Lord! Lay hands on the sick and they shall recover…even in the market place while picking up your dry cleaning!
The confession that Pastor Sarah Marie has us confess became even more real to me that day after hearing that praise report! We are the extension of the Lord Jesus Christ to take dominion on earth that the glory of God will fill the earth. We speak on His behalf, We heal on His behalf and we do great miracles on His behalf.
I had begun to experience all of the symptoms of a bladder infection on Thursday. I prayed over myself right away but the symptoms persisted, I continued to stand on faith that I was healed. Sunday morning during praise and worship I pressed in and while worshiping placed my hand in the lower area of my abdomen at which time I felt a sudden warmth and within moments all of my discomfort was gone. From that moment on every symptom I had was gone. I am so thankful for the faithful, loving God that I serve. All the Glory and Honor is to you, My Father.
I am testifying about how faithful God is to doing his word.
Right after Christmas I was watching TV when I had a prompting from God to watch a program that was teaching on First Fruit for three days.
First fruit is a seed that requires you to sow the first of every thing to God and this seed can be sown at anytime. However, when a first fruit seed is sown at the beginning of a new year on top of your tithes and offerings it sets the tone for the favor of God for the rest of the year.
I learned that this is a seed that has to be sown out of Love for God, out of obedience to his word and out of expectation for a harvest. After the program, I sowed my seed silently with no one knowing but God a lone. While my family was visiting I kept looking through my wallet, multiple times and I did not know what I was looking for. I know all I had in my in my wallet was 36 cents cash. Three days after I sowed my seed at Wednesday night woman’s bible study I found the exact amount of my seed in my wallet. After every three days on four different occasions I found a total of 4 times the exact amount of my seed in my wallet or purse. After a week, I found 5 times the exact amount of my seed. In total I found 9 times the exact amount of the one seed that I had sown. Each time I found that my seed I will call my sister and tell her I keep find money and I don’t know how or where but God did it. I am so amazed. We serve a God that is able to do more than what our minds can imagine.
Back in April I went in for my annual mammogram, and it came back with results that no woman wants to hear, a 2 centimeter mass was found. I went in for a follow-up ultrasound and with those results they referred me to a surgeon’s office. The surgeon ordered another mammogram, a more detailed one, to get a better look.
Between the first mammogram and seeing the surgeon, I had two dreams. I went to you to get prayed for and standing behind you while you prayed for me was Pastor Tracy. I knew what I needed to do, and that was to get hands laid on me.
I prayed and said that when I go to church on Sunday, I am going to ask Pastor Sarah Marie to pray for me and when hands are laid on me I will be healed. Well, that following Sunday Pastor Anton preached and after service he was at the altar praying for people. I was a little hesitant that is was Pastor Anton, because I knew what I dreamed, but then quickly corrected myself and said I will receive my healing no matter which pastor prays for me, because they are in agreement with Pastor Sarah Marie. After he prayed for me, I told him that I would let him know that I have been healed once I had received confirmation of my healing.
So I went to the surgeon’s office, had my test, and then waited for test results. When the results came back it showed that everything was clear. What was on the first mammogram was not on the second mammogram!!! The 2 centimeter mass that was clearly seen on the first mammogram was gone!!!
God is an awesome God!
My right thumb has been in a lot of pain off and on for the last month. I was at a Life Christian service last night and after praise & worship Pastor Anton announced that they would be laying hands on people after the service. I knew I would go up for prayer. The teaching started and my thumb was hurting. Pastor Sarah Marie was talking about how the enemy legally can be here on earth until the lease runs out and legally sickness & disease can be here, BUT legally sickness and disease has no right in our bodies as God’s children. I took that! I was listening to the teaching and became eager for the time of prayer at the altar because I knew I would be healed because that pain in my thumb was illegal. Right at the end of Pastor Sarah Marie’s teaching she said something along these lines “I believe in the God of the Bible, Who is the same yesterday, today and forever, so I believe in miracles!”
Right as she spoke the word “miracles” I had a sensation in my thumb and all the pain left! I could freely move my thumb 100% free of pain! I still went up to the altar, but for another need…because my thumb had already been healed!
At my daughter’s cheer banquet her coach speaks about each of the girls and how they have impacted the team. She shared on how each of the girls impacted the team by their cheerleading abilities, but when she got to my daughter, she didn’t talk about her cheering skills, but about her character.
She talked about how my daughter always has something nice to say about everyone, she is encouraging to the girls and when things seem to go wrong, she turns it around to look for the good. At one point she even said, we know why she is the way she is, she has Jesus in her.
Her coach is a Christian as well, and talked about how my daughter’s lifestyle and integrity would convict her as well when she didn’t talk right or her attitude was wrong.
TESTIMONY ON MY OLDEST DAUGHTER’S CHARACTER
So, I wrote a paper about you for school..its not as good as you really are but I thought you would like to see it ~ A FRIEND
Some storytellers are not good at telling who the characters are and only allude to who they are. Right now, I am going to tell you a story about a girl that I know. This story is not like many others and simply tells who she is. This is not to be obnoxious but truthful and insightful. Her integrity is one that cannot be put down or said negatively about. Some people’s motives are hard to fathom, but her’s are always clear and pure. Because of her clearness, it is rare that someone should misconstrue anything she does. When she worships the presence of God is potent. Whenever she sings, I feel placid and free to worship as well. I know that I can trust her to placate any issues she see’s in me. She is an exemplary role model and overall person! All of those who are around her can see that God has an amazing itinerary for her life.
~ Yeah…I just wanted to let you know that I am so thankful for you in my life!!! I love you so much!!!!!! you have no idea how much the simplest things you do bless me, so please never give up on yourself and always know that God is using you for great things!
This is what God can do in your family too. I hope that this note/blog helps you see what God can do in your family as well! This isn’t bragging on my family, but more of being a big mouth for God as Pastor Sarah Marie always says.
Once again, I am in awe of what God is doing in the people’s lives here at Life Christian Church. His power is real, His Power is active, His Power is NOW… Read this testimony and see how God is moving today in the life of one of our congregants at our Howell Campus.
I attended an appointment for what I thought was a routine vision exam. During the exam the optometrist noticed some irregularities in my vision and ran some additional test. After all of the tests were completed the optometrist recommended that I see a specialist as he suspected that I had a brain tumor or a brain disease. The next week I went to see the specialist and he confirmed a diagnosis of a brain disease and stated that vision loss and blindness were likely to occur. After this diagnoses I began experiencing symptoms such as headaches and my vision began to weaken. I began declaring my healing and knew that the word of God said that healing was already provided for me.
During a Sunday service Pastor Anton laid hands on me. I saw light coming out of his eyes and going into me, I knew that I was healed. I did not experience any more symptoms after he prayed on me. I attended another appointment for a vision exam to determine the progression of the disease. When the tests were completed the specialist was speechless and had multiple staff check the accuracy of the results. There was no evidence of the disease in the brain and my vision improved!!! The doctor said that this doesn’t happen and that it had to be a miracle.
Aren’t you in awe that God still does miracles today? Glory to God in the Highest. (Luke 2:14)
When I came down to the front of the sanctuary to receive the Communion elements; during the Communion part of the service, Pastor Sarah Marie was standing at the front row shaking everyone’s hand that passed by her. Pastor Sarah Marie shook my hand as well and touched my face. As her hand went onto my face, I felt a rush of heat passing through my face right where she touched me.
I picked up the communion elements from the table, walked back to my seat and began to worship God with both of my hands stretched out. As I was worshiping, I felt goose bumps flowing all over my body and within the same moments, I felt like someone was holding my right arm. It was like a power holding my right arm up in the space with the communion wafer still in my hand. This surprised me greatly, because I never could hold my arm up for that long. It encouraged me to look, to see who was holding my arm; I found out, it was Jesus, standing next to me and with His power, my right arm was still held up.
At the same time that this was going on, Pastor Dino was praising God and calling out the different healing manifestations as the Spirit of God was leading him. Then he asked us to receive the bread. I felt the power that was holding my arm, lift my hand and usher the bread into my mouth. Immediately, as the bread got into my mouth, I was pulled with some sort of force and was following Jesus. I don’t know how. I know I was pulled out of my seat very fast. I was following Him as He proceeded forward from where I was standing, to the right wall of the sanctuary. I then followed Him all the way around the outside of the sanctuary seats until we came to the front of the sanctuary. The next thing I knew, we were both standing next to Pastor Dino as he was still praising and worshiping God. Jesus was standing next to Pastor Dino and I was standing in front of Jesus, facing Him. Jesus was very happy in that atmosphere. I can not even begin to describe His Happiness. When Pastor Dino finished praising and worshiping God, I found myself back at my seat.
Then, Pastor Sarah Marie asked Pastor Dino to pray with her over the cloth pieces. As they both stood next to each other with their hands on the clothes praying, Jesus appeared again. This time Jesus was kneeling on the first step of the alter. Near Pastor Sarah Marie and Pastor Dino, as they were praying, He was praying with them until they finished.
When the service ended, this woman conveyed her experience to Pastor Sarah Marie. Pastor Sarah Marie requested that everyone, still in the sanctuary, stop where they were to hear the experience that just happened in the Church. After hearing this woman’s testimony, Pastor Sarah Marie invited people to come and receive the cloths that had been prayed over.
