Hey people! 😁 Hope you had a satisfying day?
Today is another day to be thankful. And on this episode of Thankful Thursday, I’d be concluding my testimony from last week.

Indescribable is how I will decribe the pain my father felt that night. Can you imagine the weight of a full car on your hand? Can you imagine how incredible the pain would be?
My mum struggled as she attempted to lift the car off of my father’s hand all by herself. She was distraught, seeing him in such a position yet unable to relieve him of his present suffering. Still she tried frantically.
My dad with his hand still stuck beneath the rim repeatedly confessed, “He took my pains, He took my pains, this pain is not my own”. And at intervals he’d plead the blood of Jesus.
Suddenly, two men appear by the car, One tall and hefty, the other short and stout, both dressed in white Senegalese and cap (like Hausa men). They made their way to the spot my father was bent. The tall man lifted the car so my dad was able to remove his hand. Then the short one took the spare tyre and replaced the flat. In no time the car was ready to move. My parents turned to thank the good samaritans but they didn’t see them. That was very strange because the road was a long stretch, and no matter what, they should have atleast been able to see the men walking off. But alas, they were no where in sight.
. . .
Now the skin on my dad’s hand had come off to the point where the cartilage was exposed. So my mum took over the driving. My dad put his left hand over the right to stop the bleeding while he continued to confess “He took my pains. This pain is not my own.”
Once we got home, my mum quickly made her way to administer first aid to my dad’s severely injured right hand, but as my dad lifted his hand, there was no sign of an injury! Not a scratch! Not a swell! Nothing! His hand was completely healed! Indeed Jesus took his pain and healed his wound!
Jesus will always be there, in the moments where we need Him the most. All we have to do is believe.
Do you believe?
