Years of Pain Stopped in Its Tracks

Tim Smith - 700 Club Producer

CBN.com Tonya Kimberley was a running enthusiast. “I always enjoyed running, since I was in my twenties. I acquired what was a runner’s fracture in my foot, and the doctor had said I’d actually been running on a broken foot for at least two years. Unfortunately, one of the things along with that was that I got arthritis in that same foot, in my right foot.”

“They said it was something I’d always have to deal with, and I received a cortisone shot to try to deaden the pain. But that was only a temporary fix. In total, (I had) about 12 years of pain, just consistently - never one day without the pain.”

“One day, (I was) just watching The 700 Club, and Terry had a word of knowledge. She was praying. Every time I would hear them start to pray, I would sit down. And they always say, ‘Grab that area of the body that you need prayer for.’  So I did, and I grabbed my foot, and I put one hand over my heart.”

“She said, ‘Your toes are hurting, and the Lord is taking that from you right now. You have a foot problem. It’s with the bones in your toes. God’s healing that for you. You’re not going to have that pain anymore.’

“I just opened my eyes all of a sudden, and I looked at the TV, and said, ‘That’s for me!’
And I just started thanking the Lord for it right away. (I) stood up, believing that I was healed, and I didn’t have any pain.”

“So I even thought to myself right away, ‘Oh, it’s mind over matter maybe. But I am like, ‘No, I really don’t have any pain for the first time in 12 years.’”

“Now, I can actually move my toe, which is something brand new. I could never do that. That’s probably the main thing that Bill was able to see – evidence. When I told him, he was kind of like, ‘Really?’

Tonya’s husband Bill could see the proof. “She took her shoe off. She was moving her toe freely, and I didn’t see this redness, and swollen, with veins popped out on top. That was all gone.”

“It’s wonderful to be able to run. I like to run a few times a week, about 5 to 7 miles. So I’m really very thankful that I can get back into a lifestyle of doing that.”

Bill was encouraged with Tonya’s healing. “I was just amazed, that, ‘Wow, these things really do happen.’”

Tonya concludes, “God is not just a big God. He’s a little God too. He cares about the big stuff, but He loves us enough to care about the little stuff. That is truly amazing.”
