On this particular Sunday, the larger denominational church wanted to bring its smaller outreach churches back for a large service all together, but some people from one of the church outreaches knew that people wouldn’t be able to travel and they didn’t want to close incase they missed anyone turning up. I happened to be one of the people roped in to keep the place open. So as we turned up, there was already signs put up, stating that the church was going to be closed that morning, and as I was just about to take the sign down, I noticed this lady limping up to the church doors and her face just dropped as she read the sign and threw her arms up in the air, huffing and puffing. I opened the doors and told her that I was just about to take the sign down, and the church is open. To which she replied that, "for me to walk all the way here and see that it was shut!! I thought, typical, nothing ever goes right!"
It turns out, that this lady hadn’t attended church for some time, through “church hurts”, but that particular morning she felt God tell her to come to this one in particular. I felt the Holy Spirit lead me to minister to her, into forgiveness, and letting go of criticalness, bitterness, staying in love but discerning religious spirits. After the service she shared with me that she was an unwanted child and her father had actually thrown her of a cliff to try and kill her, which was the cause of her twisted leg to which she’d had for over 45 years! How sad. So I shared with her some testimonies from rejection and physical healings too, and as I prayed for her twisted leg, God straightened it! How Awesome. Not only did she receive a physical healing but a spiritual healing from rejection too, you could see the peace of God in her face, fantastic, praise God. On the right is the text message I received from her the following day, without names as she wanted to remain anonymous.
