The 700 Club

Woman's Daily Encouragement Becomes Her Saving Grace

Julie Blim - 700 Club Producer

Lorna is one busy lady. A navy wife and mother of five, she’s holding down the fort while her husband is stationed overseas.

“I tried to just keep going because I knew I had to keep strong while my husband was gone,” Lorna explains.  

She’s also a home health nurse to a three-year-old, special-needs child. When she took the job in 2018, she knew it would take lots of energy and trips to the gym.

“I needed to stay fit cause I knew I’d have to pick him up. He has equipment that we have to carry with him to his school.”

Lorna was using the elliptical machine one evening, and pushed a little too hard.

“I really have to do well on this job and I need to increase my speed,” she remembers thinking.  “But I was using my arms instead of my legs to keep up quickly and then I hurt my arm by pulling too hard, too tightly.  The elbow started to get tight and I couldn’t open my arm.  So, I started to pray about it and asking the Lord for healing.”

The pain and tightness continued for weeks, making it tough to do her job, or care for her own family.

“We’re a military family and I needed to be able to work to help make ends meet while he was gone,” she says. “I was having trouble lifting my bag to get in the car.  And folding the clothes, I’d just have to let it rest because I couldn’t straighten my arm and lifting something up, I had to ask my sons to please carry these things for me.”

Just starting a new job, Lorna didn’t want to take time off to see a doctor, so she tried ibuprofen and muscle creams.

“But it didn’t really stop that pain and I couldn’t straighten my arm.”

Lorna had worked through the pain for nearly two months. Then one morning, she was watching The 700 Club.

“Oh, I love 700 Club – every day.  I love to stay encouraged,” Lorna says with a smile.  “I was doing dishes and I wanted to have relief from this pain,  and so, I was asking God for help.  I just heard a word of knowledge from Terry.”

(Terry Meeuwsen) “There’s someone else, you have clicking in your right elbow.  It is painful and so annoying.  God’s healing that for you, that whole joint is just being completely reconfigured.”

“I said, Lord that is for me, I’m receiving that.  I felt my arm just release and it straightened and I could open my arm, and I said, Lord, thank you! I was able to pick up my bag, able to put it in my car, and then able to do the things I do every day.  No pain. There was no pain,” she recalls.   

And it’s been that way ever since.  Lorna is grateful for her family, her work, and God’s mercy.

“When we cry out to the Lord in our trouble, He saves us out of our distress,” Lorna concludes.
