Christian healing—still going on

I was a typical mom, taking my kids to the doctors for ear infections, strep throat, and so on. Then my oldest son was diagnosed with a permanent, progressive hearing loss. After extensive testing by different specialists, I was told that at some time he would probably be totally deaf and that I should be grateful that he had learned to speak before it happened.

Devastated, I told an acquaintance about the diagnosis. She told me, "Jesus' healings are still going on." I said, "Yea, sure," but I knew it didn't apply to me. I was taught as a child that God chooses everything that happens and He does it for a reason; He decides who gets well and who doesn't.
