Sunday, I had an amazing experience.
First of all, you should know that I was raised Southern Baptist. My experience with SBC is that you sit still, act interested - but not TOO interested - in the minister's sermon. You air kiss folks around you before and after the service. I'd never dream that I'd go to a hand raising church or a church that believes in the "laying on of hands". We just didn't do that.
We started going to our church in June and joined in November. I love it and the kids love it.
So Sunday, the pastor had an altar call for folks that had physical problems. I went up.
I have had problems with my back since I was 17 years old. I have had therapy, injections, all kinds of tests. Chiropractic has helped the most but I can't always afford to go as often as I should. So I went to the altar and a very nice man laid his hands on my back and started praying.
I don't know what I expected. But what happened next BLEW MY MIND.
My back started heating up. It didn't hurt but it felt hot - not like a burning kind of heat but like when you chew spearmint gum or put Icy Hot on something. He and others (I don't know how many others actually) touched my back and prayed for about 10 minutes.
Y'all my back didn't hurt any more. Hasn't hurt since then.
