Miracle Mile

The last time I ran was in March 2009. Shortly after that my body started shutting down. For the last ten years, I have basically been fighting for my life. The dream of running again was just that. A dream. The mind was willing, but the body was not.

Then on November 3, 2019, I experienced a beautiful miracle. During a prayer and healing service, several people prayed over me. I instantly felt my body was being healed. Being Restored. I was able to eat and speak again. Could I possibly run again? Could that dream become reality.

Yesterday 11/30/19, I went to the store to buy a new pair of running shoes. I wanted to see if this dream could become reality. Later that day, I decided the time had come. I needed to see if I could truly run again. Below is the video of my first run in over ten years. God is still the God of miracles. Never give up praying and believing. ~OC

A New Chapter

As many of you know, I experienced an incredible miracle on November 3,2019. After not being able to speak without the assistance of a voice amplifier and being on a feeding tube for several years, I experienced healing at a Prayer & Healing Encounter. I have not had to use my feeding tube or voice amplifier since that night. God is good!

I have shared before, that I used to be a long distance runner before getting sick again in 2009. I ran my last official race in March 2009. I literally have not run since that day. I have always had a desire to run again. I even buy new running shoes once a year, in anticipation of running again. Yesterday, I officially signed up for my first race in ten years. On March 21, 2020, I will be running a 5k. I guess I better buy those gold running shoes and start training. See you at the finish line. ~OC

Running The Race

Back in April, I wrote about how God shared my healing would not come on this side of Heaven. I must admit I was a little disappointed, but at the same time I was filled with tremendous peace. Then a few weeks after that 1am discussion with God, I visited Heaven for a few minutes during a surgical procedure. During that amazing experience, God allowed me to see my new body. There was no feeding tube or device to help me speak. No, I was completely healed and ready to run. When I glanced down, I noticed I had a new pair of running shoes on. During that experience, God shared He was not finished with me yet. There was still things for me to accomplish here on earth. So, I will continue to put on my running shoes and run the race God has prepared for me. I encourage everyone to keep running the race God has designed for you. ~OC
