Someone Needs To Hear Your Story, Tell It! – A Word by Bill Yount
Email: th[email protected]
I never tire of telling my story – as someone may need to hear it and lest I forget. Here are some highlights…
On April 25th I will be 72 years old, yet still twenty-five inside for I have eternity in my heart. Ecclesiastes 3:11
“If they found a fountain of youth, I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth, funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet.” ( Alan Jackson )
So far, I have survived a brain tumor at age seven when it disappeared on the last x-ray before surgery, a blood clot in the artery of my heart with a 50/50 chance of living when I was fifty-four. Three days later, my heart stopped on the table during a heart catheterization and they jumped it back to beat again. And recently, a heart murmur became a false report. The doctors tell me I’m a lucky man. I love doctors but I’ve learned to never allow them to number my days. Our times are in God’s hands.
I will never forget what God spoke to me when my life was hanging in the balance. “Son, if the enemy can attack you, I can outdo him.” I know now that I’m being attacked by healing and that healing runs in my family because of those stripes across His back. Never fear the sickness or disease that ran in your parents and grandparents lives. As a believer royal blood rushes through your veins and has taken care of that.
Healing Started On My Mother’s Side
I believe when Mom was contending for her healings and miracles she was fighting to pass them on to us children. She found the key to long life. Twice cancer couldn’t kill her. The first time cancer spread through her body, the doctors gave her five years to live. That was forty-five years ago. At 87 the second cancer died through surgery. They got it all with no chemo needed. Years ago doctors witnessed a tumor disappear on her thyroid before taking a biopsy.
Ten years ago doctors wanted to amputate her foot. She told them, “Whenever I go to Heaven, I’m taking my foot with me!” Later they changed their mind. She kept her foot and walked fine. Most doctors who told her she wouldn’t live long are gone. She kept out living them. Her famous prayer when she got attacked was: “Lord, if I get weak and sick, how am I going to help anybody and reach the lost?” That’s it! Then healing would come upon her.
Be Careful Who You Hang Out With
After receiving a five-year death sentence with cancer, mom felt led to visit a different church in town. She went with Aunt Sophie. Aunt Sophie has been healed so many times, people thought she was crazy. ( Be careful who you hang out with.) They arrived early and sat near the front of the church before others arrived. As soon as Mom sat down, she felt a hand touch her shoulder, shooting a bolt of electricity down through her body that burnt the hairs off her arms. “I just knew God healed me of that cancer!” she said. They found out later that church didn’t believe in healing. I think that’s why God healed her before the service started.
Mom lived to be ninety years old and loved to tell people of her healings and miracles. Then she would stop and say, “But you ‘gotta’ repent!” as conviction fell on them.
** Where the devil tries to take you out is where the Lord will often send you back with bragging rights. I’m back!
I know your prayers have been major in keeping me alive and my wife too. Thank you so much
Whispers From My Darkest Nights…
* All my past scars are releasing a sweet anointing.
* When I am afraid, I have learned to say, “I’m excited!”
* “Son, when your heart stopped on that hospital table, I put some stuff in you, because you were out of the way.”
