Godwinks Galore

Godwink #1 – On Sunday I shared a story I “happened upon” the week before. The story of Duane Miller, who experienced a miraculous healing in 1993.
Godwink #2 – On Monday, I was trying to order copies of Duane’s book from his organization. When I dialed the service number it re-directed me to Duane’s personal cell phone in Houston, Texas. He was as surprised as I was to have a conversation.
I had pleasure of hearing his crystal clear voice share more of his experience. The back story for Duane is this: In 1990 he prematurely retired from pastoring because of a virus which penetrated the myelin sheath around the nerves in his vocal cords, reducing his speech to a raspy whisper. On Sunday January 17, 1993 he was asked to lead an adult Bible class. Teaching the class that day with a special microphone resting on his lips, he reaffirmed his belief in divine healing by referring to Psalm 103. Listening to the tape, at times you can barely understand his weakly spoken wheezy words. The miracle happened at verse 4 when he said, “I have had and you have had in times past pit experiences.” On the word “pit” his life changed—the word was as clear as a bell, in contrast to the imperfect enunciation of the preceding words. He paused, startled; began again and stopped. He said a few more words—all in a normal clear tone—and stopped again. The class erupted with shouts of joy, astonishment and sounds of weeping. God completely healed him as he was declaring the truth in this psalm.
Godwink #3 – Duane shared over the phone that he had over 200 doctors that were familiar with his case. His physician was the Head of Medicine at Baylor University. His was a well-documented miracle. He has since appeared on Oprah, 100 Huntley Street and traveled the world sharing his story.
I will share what he told me was the best part of his miracle this Sunday at North Pointe – 9:30 and 11AM.
Godwink #4 – Maybe Sunday will be your Godwink.
