A few weeks ago I wrote about my granddaughter, Zemirah's, birth and how her little arm was broken between her elbow and shoulder during delivery. They did not cast it. The doctors just said not to put her arm through her sleeves and try to keep it immobilized against her chest. Every once in a while she would move it and it would make a popping noise. It was quite nerve wracking!
few days before Easter I was talking to my brother, Stephen, about it.
I was stressed about work, the baby, bills - about life in general. He
prayed with me and gave me some good advice about allowing God's peace to prevail within me. He said he would have his
healing team at church (which he is a member of) pray about Zemirahs arm the following Saturday morning which
also was the day before Easter.
That Saturday morning
Stacie was getting the kids ready to go to Sarah's home for our annual
Easter egg hunt and family get together. While she was tending to Zemirah, she stretched the broken arm out and up over her head! Without a
broken arm that is pretty unusual for a baby to pull her arm above her
head and especially a broken arm! I would like to remind you that her
name means joyful songs of praise to the Lord.
little bit later Stephen texted me and said that while the prophetic and
healing team was praying God revealed that the enemy was coming to make
our joy weaker. He encouraged us to stand firm and do not receive this
from the enemy. If we did so we would see the impossible happen before
our eyes. I knew without a doubt that Zemirah had been completely
healed that morning.
The following Monday she had
another appointment with the orthopedic doctor. He took new x-rays of
her arm. He told Stacie that he could not explain it but the x-rays
showed a completely normal bone with no break at all! Praise God!
Ezekiel 37:1-7 (The Message)
God grabbed me. God’s
Spirit took me up and set me down in the middle of an open plain strewn
with bones. He led me around and among them—a lot of bones! There were
bones all over the plain—dry bones, bleached by the sun.
He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Master God, only you know that.”
He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones: ‘Dry bones, listen to the Message of God!’”
the Master, told the dry bones, “Watch this: I’m bringing the breath of
life to you and you’ll come to life. I’ll attach sinews to you, put
meat on your bones, cover you with skin, and breathe life into you.
You’ll come alive and you’ll realize that I am God!”
I prophesied just as I’d been commanded. As I prophesied, there was a
sound and, oh, rustling! The bones moved and came together, bone to
With God, all things are possible!
