Walking Was Nearly Impossible

“It hurt, constant. The pain had never let up. In fact it got worse.”

For years Sharon dealt with pain in her right knee.   

“Some of the worst pain was if I had to walk, or taking steps. And I would have to plan out every step within my home,” Sharon says.

Both of Sharon’s knees were damaged in a 2007 car accident, and her right knee never recovered.  “The doctor said that it was because there was no cartilage left.
My knee would feel like it was separated, like the lower of half of the joint wasn’t connected at all.  So wherever it pushed down it would send sharp pains.”

She took pain meds just to get through the day. Sharon had to stop doing many things she loved, and eventually had to quit her job.   “And just every portion of my life had changed, from being an active volunteer and always hosting parties and things, to pretty much just surviving.”

After several years of living with the pain, Sharon struggled to believe that she would ever be healed from her condition. “I knew I still believed, but I wasn’t where I used to be. I just doubted everything. I doubted I could have new cartilage, I doubted I could feel better. That God would even want to do that for me. It affected my faith completely.”

In 2014, Sharon and her husband saw a story on The 700 Club about a women who had been healed from headaches when Gordon gave a word of knowledge. “She said she didn’t believe. She believed that it would happen for other people but why would God heal her? I realized He did it for somebody who was asking just like I was. And who wasn’t believing like I wasn’t. So then I’d still ask the Lord well, but I need new cartilage, I need a whole new knee.”

“And it was only a few days later that I was watching and Gordon and Terry were praying.
And then Gordon started talking about that this is for somebody whose knees hurt.”

“Someone with degenerative knees on the left and right. It's difficult when you stand up and difficult when you sit down and pain is constant. God is healing you…”

“And I’m still thinking in my mind though, but I need new cartilage. And then right then I heard Gordon say, ‘and he's able to restore cartilage and he's able to put back everything that joint needs.’

And I thought oh my goodness, I felt both my knees just tingling like a cool running water feel. And I got up and I went to take my coffee cup to the kitchen and I took about 5 steps and my right knee popped very loudly and almost pushed me forward. But it didn’t hurt at all. And I just started laughing and I realized that it was my knee being healed.  And I just raised my hands and thanked the Lord and I was so excited and I just kept telling Him thank you and thank you.”

Today, Sharon is still pain free. “The pain was over 7 years, and after that day of prayer, and accepting the healing from the Lord, it was healed. It was gone. I could walk, I could garden again. I could cook. I could host parties. And lift my grandchildren. So it was God. It was only by God.”
