Randy's Story

When I was in college I developed a pretty major back issue from playing basketball. I have a slight curve in my lower back that caused a stress fracture in a couple of my lower vertebrae during my sophomore year. I played the final two years in tremendous pain and was told it might be something I would deal with the rest of my life. It doesn't always hurt but several times a year it will flair up and be very painful for a while.

The week of the worship night I was having one of the most painful weeks I've had in a while. I remember driving to the church on Friday night thinking we might have to leave early because my back was hurting so bad. When Bob gave the word for people to stand with back issues I stood up. Isaac was praying for me, and just as I was about to tell him the problem with my back was that it had a curve in it, he started to pray that God would straighten my back. His hand that was on my back as he was praying also felt very warm. I was kind of laughing to myself about how cool it was that God was telling Isaac what to pray for me when I realized my back wasn't hurting anymore. I bent over and walked around some and had no pain. On Saturday I decided to test it out and intentionally did some work that would have had my back hurting for days in the past. Still no pain. It's been a few days now and I've not had any issues. Honestly I'm still kind of stunned. God is so unbelievably good!
