God is Still doing Great Things

I have had a mole for around 6 to 12 months. I went to the Doctor in August to have several moles checked to make sure they were not cancerous. The Doctor wanted to remove this one mole. I had a appointment tomorrow to have the mole removed.
The nurse called me last week and told me to get some numbing cream to apply before the procedure. I normally do not wait until the last minute for things. I did on this cream and I could not find it. I called different Pharmacy's and nobody had the cream. I called my Doctor to find out how necessary the cream was. The lady told me that I did not have to get it, but that it would help the pain from the needle going in. She said with out the cream it would hurt some. I told her I guess I could handle it. I hung the phone up and felt sad. I thought to myself that I wish God would move on this mole and take it off and that I would not have to have the procedure.

As soon as I thought that, God spoke to me and said "You have not asked." I wish so bad you could of been in my shoes. God spoke to me so strong that it seemed like God was right in the room talking to me.
I was like, "I have not asked??? I really have not asked."
I started praying and asking God to move on the mole. God started giving me scriptures. I will not share them all with you.
One scripture that God gave me was Matthew 7:7-8 "ask, and it shall be given to you, seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Matthew 21:22 And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing ye shall receive.

God was speaking to me through his word. God was giving me all kinds of thoughts. I thought that I could have my pastor pray for me at church, but I knew that if I canceled my appointment that I might get charged for not giving a 24 hour notice.

I did not let that hinder me. I just kept praying throughout the day. Courtney saw the mole and she was like, "That is gross looking Mom."
I told her that I was praying that God would remove it. Courtney and Brooke wanted to pray, so they got down on their knees and Courtney prayed that God would remove the mole.
I kept checking and feeling to see if the mole was gone, because I felt very strongly that God had spoken to me.
The mole did seem to feel different and it seemed to have shrunk. I was getting excited thinking that God was going to remove this mole. I kept thinking on good things, and was determined if God did not move today that he would by tomorrow.

Several hours passed and God moved. THE MOLE CAME OFF. PRAISE BE TO GOD.

I was so excited and rejoicing for what God did. I yelled for Courtney and Brooke and showed them what God had done. Courtney's eye's got big and she said, "if God can do that for you in just a couple of hours then God can move on my tooth and make it come in so I don't have to have braces."
That is another story. Courtney has a tooth that will not come through because there is not enough room. Her dentist is sending her to a specialist and he said she would have to get braces. Courtney has cried and ask us to pray that she would not have to get braces. I saw the X-ray and I know that God will have to move for the tooth to come in, but I have to say my faith is encouraged that God can do this for Courtney.

I called my Doctor to cancel my appointment. I told her that I had been praying and that God had moved and the mole had came off. She kind of laughed and said, "Well I will tell the Doctor, but she will probably want you to come in later and let her make sure it is O.K."
I said, "There is no reason. It is gone."

I know there is many unbelievers who feel this mole that I had just fell off. You can not convince me of that. I have had it to long, and there is no way it would have just fell off the day before my procedure. I also know how God spoke to me today. God is still doing great things. Praise be to God.

Denna, that is AWESOME! That is the best post I've read in a long time!

(I almost never use the word "awesome" but this news truly is!!)

It's amazing the "morning time" and "sixth seal" type miracles that we hear about so often. It's so awesome to know that God is still working just as strong now as he ever has. The devil often tries to tell us that all of God's workings are in the past or are going to happen in the future. But, God proved him wrong because God did a miracle TODAY!!!

All I could say when you testified is, "Wow! That is so amazing!"
I'd be ridiculous to think that you've had it for so long and it just happened to come off the same day God inspired your faith!
All praise to God!
