When a Cough Turns Deadly

A nagging cough sent Tim to the doctor where he received devastating news. With his life in the balance, Tim trusted God for healing. Read Transcript


HE ALWAYS FELT HEALTHY SO

WHEN HE

DEVELOPED A COUGH IN THE FALL

OF 2007,

HE THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT EVEN

WHEN HIS

FAMILY NOTICED THIS

THANKSGIVING.

I FELT GREAT.

UNTIL HE NOTICED HE WAS

HAVING

TROUBLE BREATHING.

I TOLD HIM, MAKE SURE YOU

CHECK

THAT OUT.

FINALLY HE WENT TO HIS

FAMILY

PHYSICIAN.

HE WAS HAVING SOME COUGH

AND

CONGESTION AND SAID IT HAD

BEEN GOING

ON FOR A WHILE. IT WASN'T

REAL CLEAR.

AT THAT POINT IN JANUARY OF

2008, WE

DECIDED TO DO A ROUTINE CHEST

X-RAY.

I WAS NOT WORRIED AT ALL, I

HAD NO

SUSPICION AT ALL THAT

SOMETHING COULD

BE WRONG WITH MY HEALTH.

THE DOCTORS SAID IT WAS

WORTH. IT

WAS A LESION.

DOCTOR REFERRED HIM TO A

CAT SCAN.

TIM AND DIANE WERE SHOCKED

WHEN THEY

SAW THE RESULTS.

I WAS LOOKING AT THE KIRK

--

CIRCLES AND COUNTING.

HE'S COUNTING TO 20 AND I

THOUGHT

THIS MAN ISN'T GOING TO WALK

OUT OF

THIS OFFICE ALIVE.

ALL I REMEMBER IS I GOT UP

TO 22 AND

DR. SCHULTZ CAME BACK IN AND

I SAID

WHAT ARE THESE CIRCLES AND

ARROWS?

HE SAID THOSE ARE YOUR

TUMORS. I

SAID THIS IS MY HEART AND HE

SAID NO,

THESE ARE TUMORS.

THIS MAN IS A WALKING DEAD

MAN.

DOCTORS DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

WAS IN HIS

LUNGS.

IT'S NOT A BACTERIAL IN

TECHNICIAN

-- INFECTION, IT DIDN'T

INDICATE

CANCER.

TIM UNDERWENT A BIOPSY BUT

IT WAS

INCONCLUSIVE AND THE TUMORS

WERE

TAKING OVER HIS LUNGS. HE

ASKED THE

SPECIALIST TO BE HONEST.

I WANT A STRAIGHT DOC TO

TELL ME

WHAT'S GOING ON.

FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, SIX 6

MONTHS

ARE LEFT. THOSE WERE HIS

EXACT WORDS.

ALTHOUGH HIS HEALTH WAS

DETERIORATING, HIS FAITH WAS

GROWING.

I HAD A STRONG FEELING,

I'M NOT

READY TO DIE. I HAD GREAT

MOMENTS OF

FAITH WHERE I KNOW GOD IS

GOING TO

HEAL ME. THE LORDING

SPEAKING TO ME

NOW. I READ THE WORD AND GOD

GAVE ME

PROMISES.

THERE WERE TIMES OF

DOUBTING AS

WELL.

TIM AND HIS WIFE FLEW TO

GENTLEMAN

-- GEORGIA TO CHURCH BUT HE

BECAME

FRUSTRATED.

I SAID GOD, WHY COME ALL

THE WAY

HERE AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO

HEAL ME.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN MIND?

I HEARD THE LORD'S VOICE "

JUST

REST". I REALIZED I'M NOT

HERE TO

REST AND THE LORD SAID IT

AGAIN "JUST

REST".

WHEN HE GOT HOME, HE DID

EXACTLY

WHAT HE TOLD HIM TO DO.

I PUT OUT MY HANDS AND I

SAID "GOD,

HERE IS MY HUSBAND. I GIVE

HIM TO YOU

AND YOU SAID TO ASK AND GOD

I'M GOING

TO ASK. I'M GOING TO ASK

THAT YOU

TAKE MY HUSBAND AND GIVE HIM

LIFE".

ONE NIGHT 200 PEOPLE

GATHERED IN

THE CHURCH AND PRAYED FOR HIM

AND HE

SAYS IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE HE

WILL

NEVER FORGET.

AS THE PRAYER GREW, A HEAT

STARTED

AND I FELT HOT AND I DON'T

LIKE

FEELING HOT AND I STARTED

MOVING

PEOPLE'S HANDS-OFF BUT THEY

CAME BACK

ON. THAT'S THE BEGINNING OF

THINKING

I'M BEING HEALED.

WITHIN A FEW DAYS TIM

NOTICED THE

PAIN IN HIS CHEST WAS GONE.

THE CAT

STAN REVEALED SIX TUMORS HAD

DISAPPEARED. 6 MONTHS LATER,

HE HAD

ANOTHER CAT STAN.

I WAITED FOR SIX MONTHS 6

MONTHS

AND THE CAT SCAN REVEALED NO

TUMORS.

THEY WERE GONE. I WAS

COMPLETELY

HEALED. THE DOCTOR SAID, THE

MIRACLE

HERE IS THAT THERE IS NO

SCARRING IN

YOUR LUNGS.

THIS IS A MIRACLE. GOD IS

WORKING.

DOCTORS WERE SHOCKED TO

SEE THE

REPORT.

THIS IS UNUSUAL, A

PLEASANT

SURPRISE BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T

USUALLY

HAPPEN.

TODAY TIM IS BACK TO THE

ACTIVE

LIFESTYLE HE'S ALWAYS LOVED

AND HE AND

HIS WIFE ARE AMAZED WITH WHAT

GOD HAS

DONE IN HIS LIFE.

THIS IS A MIRACLE. EXPLAIN.

I FEEL EXTREMELY

OVERWHELMED. IN

PRAYER ALONE I THANK THE LORD

FOR

TOUCHING ME AND THAT'S WHERE

I

BREAKDOWN AND MY EMOTION TO

THE LORD.

HE REACHED DOWN AND TOUCHED

MY LIFE.

I'M SO THANKFUL FOR IT. I'M

SO

THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE.
