Just a quick post here because I wanted this to be read by as many people as possible. Last night during practice, we were going back over the Last Supper Scene. Each one of us brought our very best to the table and could really feel the loss the Apostles had to be feeling when Christ said he would suffer, be betrayed by one of them and that he was going to leave us for a season. The whole experience with my Brothers was awesome, emotional and spiritually uplifting.
However, what I write about today doesn't relate to the scene. It is something that happened between runthroughs of that scene. The leader of our group, Spenser Waters, has been in a lot of pain lately. He has been experiencing major back problems. As we stood outside of the room where we were practicing waiting for another runthrough, Spenser sat down on the ground in pain. We noticed it just as we had at other times, but this time something was different. A number of us surrounded him, laid hands on him and began to pray. We put the promises of Mark 16:18 into practice. We prayed and believed. We got ready to go back in to practice, but one of us noticed that Spenser wasn't with us anymore. He had run downstairs and gone into the church where Pastor was speaking. He went up to Pastor and told him what happened. He had been healed. God healed him. Our faith and practice of the scripture worked. Because we believed and we were in a place spiritually to let God move, one of our brothers is pain free today!
This is not the only thing that has happened this year during Above All Practice and it certainly won't be the last. God is moving and He wants to move on and in all of us. We don't have to be cast members of an Easter Production, or pastor or anything "special". We just need to believe in God and believe in His Word. I look forward to sharing more testimonies like this as the Above All Season progresses.
