"Hand of God" -Vanity Prayer request for FReeper
Real Life ^ | 4/15/2012 | STOCKPIRATE VANITY

Posted on 04/15/2012 4:05:41 PM PDT by stockpirate

This morniing Freeper Stockpirate had a massive heart attack, first one! God was with me the whole time.

There was a mircle during this that I wouldlike to share.

My son-in-law was outside on a ladder working on the house, meanwhile I was in the basement having my very own heart attack. No one could here me yelling for help, I asked God for help then got onmy cellphone and started calling our various cell phones in the house.

My oldest granddaughter ansewered her's I asked her to tell her mom to come to the basement fast....she told me her dad had fallen off the ladder a couple of minutes ago and mom was calling an ambulance.......

As it turned out he was okay but the ambulance took me to the hospital......

I was 100% block in one artery and 90% inn the other....

My son-in-law said it felt like someone had kicked the ladder out at the bottom, which would been been about the time I asked God to help...

SOrry if my spelling is bad, I am in CCU amnd wanted to share....

PS please pray for me....if you find it in your heart to do so..

Thank you for sharing that miracle with us. We should all share stories of our miracles, and I just told my husband about your miracle.

More prayers for you and your family!

Someone up-thread wondered why God didn't just keep your arteries clear so you didn't have to have a heart attack in the first place. Well, I hope you know that God works in ways we don't always understand but, as I shared your story with my Mom and husband, both were uplifted by it and many people here have been as well. Could God have prevented you from suffering this? Sure, of course, He could. But, then, how would you know - how would any of us know - that the hand of God was strong on our behalf? Or how many times HAS the Lord protected us and we will never know?

It's been said, "If you never had a problem you'd never know that God could solve them.", and, "If you had sunshine all your life you'd be a desert.". I can assure you from personal experience just how true that is and I pray that, as you recover, you will become more and more assured just how much God loves you and just how much He has yet to bless you with in this life. Thank you so much for taking the time from your hospital bed to praise the Lord for what He most clearly DID in your life with us. Keep us in the loop! God bless you.

Thanks to all of you and your prayers. When I was posting the thread the tech came in to draw my blood, I asked her if she would mind waiting while I finished, I told her the story,

She then prayed for me before leaving.

Had my son-in-law not come off the ladder, the ambulance would not have been there for me. Even though I didn’t know if I was having a heart attack I took 2 asprins.....

During the time after I osted this, people who worked at the hospital would come to my room to talk, when I mentioned what happened they said they already had heard the story and please share it with them...

It seemed to me there were too many techs and nurse’s checking on me then there should have been.....

I have had several mircles in my life over the years, God is great, his plan for me may be nothing more then the fact that I shared the story of what happened to me on Sunday.

Again thanks for the prayers I know they helped, and I was proud of my fellow freepers for not correcting my bad spelling as usual :-)

God bless America
