A Total Setup By God
It’s been over 9 hours since I heard the news. Since God showed up and showed out on my dad’s behalf. I’m still wondering when I’m gonna wake up from this dream. No matter when I think of what God has done. I just keep shaking my head. I’ve never felt more awe struck and speechless in my life.
Earlier this evening I had a conversation with my dad by phone. Him and mom were home playing cards. In some ways it feels like dad has totally bypassed the healing stage. After all he was just one month into what we knew would be at least a six to nine month chemo journey.
Dad said the doctor just kept saying “I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.” Dad didn’t know if that was good or bad in the moment. Then, she said “Mr Crosby you won’t be having to take anymore chemo.” Once again dad’s heart dropped figuring all hope must be lost. He’s like what do you mean I’m all done with chemotherapy since I just got started.
That’s when the doctor tried her best to explain this miracle. That somehow all his cancer numbers had changed. In fact, they went from really bad to really good seemingly overnight. We’re talking after nearly a month of absolutely no chemo treatments. She said “According to these numbers you’re cancer is in full remission. I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.”
Dad said him and mom just looked at each other teary eyed and speechless. Both of them in total disbelief of what was being said. Mom asked “So you’re saying no more treatment is necessary? That his cancer is in full remission?” No wonder mom still sounded like she had seen an angel when she called me. She was startled, amazed, and overjoyed all at the same time.
I have no doubt that I will never forget this day the rest of my short life. Today God revealed His great power. Today God set things up where only He could get the glory. Today God answered a lot of prayers and extended my daddy’s life. I will be forever grateful for this miracle.
“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.” John 9:1-3
