answered prayers and Miracles
It was February 15, 2017, and my mom and brother had come up for the weekend to visit BSU. We had planned to go shopping Saturday night, then go to a movie. The movie was called, “A Dog’s Purpose.” We told Julia and Sara we were going to do this, and Julia’s relatives had come up too, so they wanted to come. We were running a bit late to the movie because we were shopping. We were in the checkout line when I said we weren’t going to make it unless we left now. We put our clothes in a place where we could buy them later, then took off towards the theatre. We arrived and walked up to buy our tickets. The movie started at 7:20pm and it was about 7:18pm. The lady told us the movie was sold out. There weren’t any other movies we wanted to go to, so I just called Sara and told her what happened and that we were just going to go back to TJ Max. As we were walking into the store, two homeless guys that were standing on the sidewalk called us over. My mom said, “no thank you,” which I am not sure why she chose those words, but I walked right over to him and asked what was going on. He asked me for two dollars to go buy a coffee for himself and his other friend. I looked at him, and pulled out my wallet. My mom and brother were standing behind me watching. I pulled out a ten and said to him, “I’m going to give you ten dollars.” He was surprised and asked why I would do this, he had just wanted two dollars. I said, “I will give you ten dollars if you promise me that you will spend it on coffee, not anything else you don’t need.” He nodded his head and said, “of, course.” Before I gave it to him, I said, “I also want you to thank God for everything you have, even if it is small, like this gesture. I want you to thank Him.” He said, “yes, I will.” I then asked if I could pray for him, he said yes and his friend walked over. His friend had a limp that I noticed, so I asked him what happened. He said he had arthritis. I said ok we will pray for that. I put my hand on his knee and asked Jesus to come into him and heal him. I still do not know if the guy was healed yet, or if he even felt anything in his leg. I prayed with them both to put all their trust in God, even when their lives are hard. I then told them God loved them both and gave them a hug. As we were walking into the store, I just looked at my mom and said, “That’s totally normal around her.” She was so surprised at what had just happened. I just told her and my brother about healing and how we should show love to everyone. My mom said she was proud of me and my brother asked how I knew how to do it. We talked about it a little longer, then continued shopping. I had felt a lot of power that night when talking to those guys. I knew God was with me, and that the homeless man with arthritis was going to be healed.
