In light of my son’s healing, one of the first times he and I waited at the Train Depot for the Zoo Train, he jumped up and down with pure joy. The conductor, an elderly gentleman who had a precious smile, punched a whole in my special needs son’s ticket. He jumped up and down excitedly patting me, “urry! Mom! Icket!”
My eight-year-old little special needs boy half drags me, and half runs ahead to get on the train. As I scramble to catch up to him, he quickly shows his ticket to the conductor at the gate, and then makes sure I show mine. He picks the closest seat, talking the whole time about the conductor and looking around him, anticipating the ride.
That day showed me a perfect picture of how much God healed my son.
My son did not even walk until age 3 and was not potty trained until age 4. It took me years to not fret over his chewing and swallowing, not to mention the many times he came down with a simple cold and ended up with pneumonia.
So, to see him run with excitement over a train, give me directions and all without illness, gave me great joy.
Do I regret all of that? Actually, no. I was terrified of making a mistake and not knowing what to do about my son’s health. In my former life, I was a public school teacher with no medical experience. To say that I had some sort of instinct about all this was completely wrong.
When, I discovered his allergies, thanks to one young doctor, I felt freed, to be honest. Not all of this medication was about my son’s genetic syndrome, in fact, I discovered, almost none of it was. His low muscle tone showed up in his gut, his digestion and his ability to breathe, sure. But, to say that he would keep on like this for the rest of his life, was untrue.
Like my son, I glowed ecstatic. I mean, for God to hand me some ideas to help my son heal and for them to work? That was a miracle.
Vitamin C became my son’s friend, and now he rarely gets sick. The Lord was right, of course, and the Holy Spirit train took us all the way through our journey.
He wants to heal your child too.
It is possible, and He will carry it out. Will it take several years? Maybe. While God healed my son of immediate symptoms within about 1 month, the smaller signs took a bit longer. Then, once I got my son’s gut healed, we were home free.
As you can imagine, ecstatic doesn’t even come close to how I felt.
Ask Him to heal your child. Won’t you follow the Holy Spirit Train today? I pray for health and healing in your family.
