My Test is now my Testimony

Praise God! My CT Scan came back showing absolutely nothing in the "area of concern"! Not that I am surprised by that because I already had peace that God was going to heal me. I just think it's awesome to actually have physical proof in a cd full of MRI images that showed something in the "area of concern" and now I have a CT report that says "I got your back (literally)" from God. Many thanks to my prayer warriors out there. God has heard you Loud & Clear! But I do know that my testimony is not for me. I already know the healing powers we can obtain through Jesus Christ. This is for those out there who need "proof", for the non-believing believers. Those who worship God but are not convinced of the healing powers of prayer. This is for them. God has used me as a vessel to show off which is All Good with me.
Just to humor me, God added some fun in the trip to get the scan. The night before I went to a baby shower and won a prize from playing "baby bingo". It was a set of lotion, wash and linen spray from Bath and Body Works in a fragrance of Magnolia Blossom. I remember commenting on how I wasn't sure what Magnolia smelled like. On the way home from the shower God spoke to me and told me that this prize wasn't for me. That I was to let this blessing pass through me and give it to Lorraine who had taken me under her wing at the clinic and made sure I got my authorizations for my tests (not an easy task, I might add). So in obedience, the next day I presented Lorraine with the goodies. She was so delighted and thanked me several times, then she looked at the fragrance and got a puzzled look on her face and said, "how did you know that Magnolia's are my favorite flower?". I responded with,"I didn't, God did". She was a bit baffled but thanked me at least a half dozen more times. Then said, "You didn't have to do that!" and I said, "Oh, yes I did!"
I truly believe that my obedience was rewarded when I got a phone call that afternoon, rather than the following week, telling me my scan results. I already knew what they would be but didn't have to wait over the weekend to get them.
I shared my testimony at church today and I hope that who ever needed to hear it was there. God does hear our prayers, And God does answer them!
