I am really late on posting this because this happened almost a month ago now but it is really cool and I want to get it out there.
My youngest son Dillion has had ear problems his entire life. Since he was about four he has had tubes put in his ears. I think that has been done a total of 4 times plus he has had his tonsils and adenoids removed. All in the hopes that his ear infections would go away. But all it seemed to do was damage his ears even more. I will admit I was young and stupid and just believed what the doctors told me. I mean really they were the doctors who am I to argue. Looking back at it I would have gotten a few more opinions before starting to do all these surgeries on him.
The funny thing though when he would get his ear infections he would not complain at all about them it would just be coincidence that we would find out about them. At least until he started getting tubes in. Once that started the way we would know he had infection his ears would start to bleed. OUCH!!!
Every time that would happen I would get so scared I mean it can't be good to have your ears bleeding can it? Anyway it has been at least three years since Dillion has had an ear infection and it has been great until about a month ago.
I was sleeping in my room and I heard a knock on my door, it was Dillion. This kind of startled me because he never knocks on my door then the next words out of his mouth just shocked me because I had never heard him say it before. He said his ear hurt. I told him to take a couple ibuprofen and then if he wanted he could come and lay in my bed with me for the night. (Mommies just know how to make you better). So he went and took the medicine and then came to back to my room and layed down. He was in there tossing and turning and whimpering so I knew it had to hurt. I was just waiting to see blood. But he got up and left my room for a couple minutes and I could here him in the living room just saying ow,ow,ow over and over. Then he came back into my room and layed down beside me, he was still wiggling a lot and whimpering from the pain so I rolled over and put my hands on him and started praying to God to heal him or at least take the pain away. I was praying for about ten seconds and all of a sudden Dillion was asleep!!!! Now this was only about 3 minutes after he had taken the ibuprofen so I know it wasn't the pills. But this is not even the best part the next day I went to work and I called him at home to see how he was feeling. He said to me he was fine. I said how is your ear, He said it feels a little funny but it does not hurt. So I just let it go for the day. I continued to ask him for a few more days and every day I got the same response it doesn't hurt.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!!! I mean I know God answers prayer and it is awesome but I honestly think this is the first time I have seen an answer that fast. He literally healed Dillion in the first five seconds of my praying. He is the most Awesome God we could have.
I have always been a believer in prayer but after that it just strengthened my belief. Sorry it took me so long to tell you that story but at least I got it out there now.
