It was on a Friday this year, January 6. My son (SCOTT) works at a plant bottling juices for Walmart, Sam's Club, ect. He has an asthma condition and uses inhalers. He attends most every Bible meeting we have. On that day, not thinking, he ate some almonds at work, but he happens to be highly allergic to them. Somehow he had a reaction and was having a hard time breathing. So with permission he left work early to drive home (about 7 miles). As he was driving, it was getting harder & harder to breathe. As he neared home, he was gasping for breath, and decided to head for the hospital on down the road. Thank God for angels!!! He was driving and blacking out over & over for lack of oxygen. He pulled up to the ER, jumped out of the JEEP, walked into the ER and said "I can't breathe", and immediately fell on the floor. He was in the ER for 3 or 4 hours. At one point he stopped breathing and they used paddles to revive him. He is very husky and they had to sedate him. All this time I knew nothing about it. I had been trying to call him, but his pay as you go cell had expired and he hadn't renewed it yet. Someone in the ER that knows us called his brother, then he called us, telling us that Scott was in critical condition and they were putting a tube down his throat. My wife started crying so I headed for my room to prepare to head for the hospital. As I was grabbing my hat, I said, "NO DEVIL, this is not going to work. YOU GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY SON, NOW!! in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth."
We went to the hospital and waited until he was in ICU, then me and my other son entered the room. There he was with a tube in his throat pumping air into him (a ventilator). I continued praying all along for him, then me & my other son went to the parking lot to see where his JEEP was parked, and we found it. Within 20 minutes we returned to the room. They had removed the tube from his throat and he was waking up. What a quick recovery! He was released and back home in 2 days. His job gave him a week off to rest, and was back to work.
This is a true testimony I wanted to share. God is good, and looks out for His own. Have faith in God. Never submit to circumstances! Fiery trials do come our way, but "we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us" Philippians 4:13.
