Any testimonies regarding creative miracles.

I was recently watching a conference on TV that was being held here in England and one of the guest speakers was backstage being interviewed. He started to share about a healing he had done on a woman's hand. This particular lady had no hand and he prayed for her to recieve full restoration of her hand. After about two months or so he bumped into her at a meeting and she asked him if he recognised her, to which he replied no. She then told him that he once prayed for her hand to be restored and that God had done it and she now had a new fully functioning hand.
The guy who he had shared this incredible testimony with didn't bat an eyelid, infact he didn't hardly respond. It was as if he sees this kind of thing happening often and to him this was just another example of what God frequently does.

For some reason I have no problem believing God still heals our illness and disease but when it comes to replacing a major organ or restoring a limb my faith becomes more sceptical. Is this wrong? God can raise the dead and I'm still having hard time believing He can restore a limb

Am I the only one who starts asking myself questions like who is this woman? why hasn't she contacted the local media to testify about the power of God and the miracles He performs? Why hasn't her family testified and spread the word about their mother, daughter etc.. having her hand fully restored. What about the surgeons and doctors who knew her before she had the healing where are they? etc...

In this media savvy age we live in surely these kind of miracles would be headline news, wouldn't they?

Has anybody ever experienced such a healing or know someone who has?

Testimonies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Ok I'm speaking up.... this isn't from my personal testimony but it happened to a girl in my church. She, for whatever reason, had one leg significantly shorter than the other...so much so that she required orthopedic (?) shoes and recieved physical therapy for the back pain, etc it caused her. I had seen her walking around church before. There was a healing seminar at my church and someone got a word for someone with a leg problem. This girl got prayer for her leg. She went to the doctors later that week (the same one she had always gone to before), he measured her leg and found that unexplainably there was only a few cms difference between her leg lengths-something that was totally normal. A girls leg just can't "grow" like that unless God had a hand in it. I regret this is something that hasn't happened to me personally but rather someone in my church, but it did truly happen.

I have seen tremendous healings...

Probably the most amazing was when I watched a college student who had been born severely clubfoot be healed. I saw the bones in his feet re-arrange themselves in front of me. His special orthopedic shoes would no longer fit, as they were now about an inch too narrow.

Creative miracles-- I know this sounds amazing, but I watched as the bread for communion materialized in my hand from nothing. That has only happened once, but it is something I will never forget. It still messes with my mind every time I think about it.

Creative miracles

For 26 years I have experienced miracles, seen them happen when others prayed and have seen them happen when I prayed for someone.

Perhaps it's not 'creative', but these miracles are just so amazing to me:
My father had stage 4 breast cancer that spread to his spine, brain, lungs, and liver (he eventually died from organ failure, but not until living four times as long as they said he would!).. What amazes me about his final two years was that he walked the entire time! After he died we found out he had been walking and functioning miraculously with 9 spinal fractures! Fragments of bone were all over, but NONE of them even touched his spinal cord. and neither did any of the innumerable tumors(over 40) that grew on his spine. THAT is a miracle to me.

He also came out of comas by the power of prayer. And he was on full life support and the doctors said he would die that night, but he was brought back overnight and could live without any support the next morning. The docs couldn't explain that one!

THat's amazing! I don't know how anyone would be able to walk normally with 9 spinal fractures-unless it was from God!

I consider this a creative miracle. My grandson was born premature, and only weighed 2-1/2 Ibs at birth. A shoe box was bigger then he was. He was in the Neo-Natal Intensive care for 4 months, and I watched God miraculously take each obstacle that came up, and deliver him from them. He is almost 2-1/2 years old now, and doing great. He has one more mountain to cross with his liver. The Hyper Portal Vein is collapsed, and he is on meds for this, but you would never know that anything was wrong with him. He is supposed to have surgery for this when he is older, to have a shunt put in his liver. I'm not worried, because we serve a big God who has brough him safe thus far.
