"I don't really feel it anymore." - In Jesus - 09-08-2014

I was initially planning on doing a fast today when I went to work this morning so I didn't bring any food with me. Once arriving at work and finding that I had been placed in the coldest spot on the whole office floor (they sit us in different spots), and anyone who has fasted before knows how your body temperature drops when you do, I thought to myself *Oh dear, this is going to be a chilly day.* A few minutes into my shift I had the thought to reach my hand inside one of the pockets of my backpack. I wasn't even sure why or what I was looking for. As I unzipped it and slid my hand in, I felt half of a Bounty coconut chocolate bar, my favorite bar. Score! haha. I decided not to fast and eat the bar to bring up my body temperature so I wouldn't be so cold. Thank You Lord!

During my lunch break I decided to stop at the Forks Market to pick myself up a coffee and maybe a dainty or something. I ended up buying a coffee and a nanaimo bar. The nanaimo bar was so yummy. While I was walking out the back of the Forks Market, I was approached by 6 young adults and one of them was holding out an Apple iPhone toward me asking if I could take a picture of them all jumping up at the same time. I said sure. We tried 3 times and finally on the third time, I got an acceptable shot. The last time they jumped up, the one guy who had asked me to take the photo, had swung his arm back and accidentally swiped one of the girls on the nose. She was standing there holding it and mentioning about how it hurt.

I figured this was definitely a divine appointment so I decided to ask if any of them had any pain or sickness in their bodies. The girl who was hit said "My nose hurts." I walked up to her and asked what the pain level was at. I believe she said it was a 3 or 4 out of 10. I said "Watch this. Let me touch your nose for a second. Don't worry, I won't hurt you. Just watch." She was a little nervous but let me do it. The others just stood by and watched. I reached out my right finger and put it lightly on the tip of her nose and then said "Pain go. Leave this girl's nose, right now, in the name of Jesus." I stepped back and asked her how it felt. She giggled uncomfortably and said "I don't really feel it anymore."

I smiled and was about to say something then the young man who accidently hit her spoke up and said something along the lines of "I have pain in my foot right now. Can you do that for to me?" and he put his foot toward me. I asked him what the pain level was at and I think he gave me the level also at a 3 out of 10. I said "Ok, watch this", and bent over and put my hand on his right foot and then spoke to it and commanded all pain to leave in Jesus' name. I stepped back and said "How is it? Where's the pain? It's all gone, right?" He said "Ya." with a bit of a surprised look on his face and started to move it around. I said "Crazy hey? You see. That's Jesus, man. He's real. He really is the Son of God." As he was moving it around he found that he could still feel it slightly and mentioned so, so I bent over and laid my hand on it once again and commanded the pain to go one more time.

I stepped back and explained who Jesus was to them all, why He came and why they all needed Him as Lord and Savior. They all listened as I explained the gospel to them. Some more intently than the others. I quickly shared how they can go about asking Him to be their Lord and then the one who had his foot healed, the one who seemed to be more of the leader of the bunch, said "Well, we should really hurry up and get going. We are already late. But thank you for sharing with us and taking the picture and also for helping me." I let them go and thanked them for listening to me and for letting me pray for them.

Thank You Lord! Grant each one repentance to life, eternal life, and knowledge of You!

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
