A Mind Made Whole
So that from his [Paul’s] body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. — ACTS 19:12
The mentally handicapped sister spent four years in the mental institution in Oklahoma and another three years either shut up in her bedroom or outside when the weather was good.
This woman at my meeting shared with me, “Before my sister lost her mind, she and I seemed closer than any of our other sisters. But after she lost her mind, I couldn’t even visit her at my youngest sister’s house. If she saw me, she would jump on me like a wild animal and start tearing my clothes off. The only time I could ever see her was from the other side of the fence when she was in the backyard.”
Then she said, “Brother Hagin, I want you to lay hands on this handkerchief.” I said, “Okay, I’ll lay hands on it tomorrow night when I begin ministering to the sick.” After I laid hands on the handkerchief, she came and got it, thanked me, and left.
A few weeks later, this Methodist woman stood up in the congregation and asked if she could testify.
She said, “I took that handkerchief to my youngest sister’s house. I said to her, ‘I want you to pin this handkerchief to our sister’s clothes every day and let her wear it.’ She wore it for ten days, and, suddenly, her mind was all right! My sister called me and I rushed over there. When I went into the living room, instead of jumping on me like a wild animal, she hugged me and told me how much she loved me. She was just as normal as the rest of us.”
Confession: There is nothing too difficult for God. No matter how long it has been or how impossible it may seem, God can turn the situation around!
