Child's Ear Ache Healed
A nine-year-old is introduced to the Bible through the healing of an earache.
On my summer vacation, I visited my aunt and her family. I played in the pool and Jacuzzi all day. That night my ear really hurt. I usually have earaches, but this was worse than ever. I never can go to sleep when one starts. I told everyone about my ear.
Three family members asked if they could pray for me. I didn't think that would work, but I said, yes. My aunt read to me from the Bible. She read Prov 20: 12
The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them.
She told me God made my ears. She asked me if God could make a bad ear. I never thought about God making my ears. This was new to me. She read Jesus' words, Matt. 13:16
blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
I never thought about having blessed ears. Everyone talked with me gently as they tucked me into bed. This was very comforting and I fell asleep right away. I woke up an hour later to get a drink of water. My ear didn't hurt. I woke up my aunt and said, "My ear doesn't hurt, it doesn't hurt." She thanked God right away and so did I.
I played in the water for the next few weeks and never had my ears hurt again. I like what the Bible says about God and me.
