I have a testimony about the mercy and healing power of God. I've been praying for healing in myself, family and pets and I've been healed of depression and food allergies! Praise God. But I've seen more healing miracles in my dog and cat.
One day my cat began to have trouble going to the bathroom and began to pass blood in her urine and she began to pee everywhere. I took her to the vet and found out that she had bladder stones and the operation would cost $600! I prayed for her healing, but also asked God to help me get a job to pay for the surgery (I got the job), but on the day of the operation I got a call from the vet saying that her ultrasound was clear and she didn't need the operation. He sounded puzzled and thought perhaps she'd passed the stones (he sounded like he didn't believe what he was saying). I wasn't surprised! In fact, I was expecting his call. God heals cats, too!
This condition came back a few months later, but this time I didn't bother to call the vet. I just prayed! Maybe a week later, my four-year-old announced, "I know that God has healed Princess and you don't have to keep her locked up anymore!" She spoke with such authority that I believed her. Sure enough, the cat is fine now. Thank you, Jesus.
This last miracle just blows me away. It may seem silly to most people, but this is a miracle that has gotten the attention of my disbelieving family. I have a little Pomeranian who had horrible breath! When she opened her mouth I could smell it a mile away. YUK! I've lost my job because I am standing in faith for healing of my eyes, so I didn't have the $250 for teeth cleaning. I prayed for her general health and clean teeth. What seems so amazing is that I don't remember exercising faith. I just prayed and God answered. Yesterday, the dog was in my face and I realized that I didn't smell anything. I even had to pick her up and bring her closer to smell --nothing! Today I made my family smell her breath and they had to admit it was a miracle!
Isn't God wonderful? He even cares about little, stinky dogs. What a merciful God.
P.S.: I've also prayed that God keep the fleas off both cat and dog and I haven't had to use any flea medicine this summer!
