A Faith That Never Gave Up!

“It was frustrating because I couldn't do the things I wanted to do like swim, exercise, and pick up my grandchildren when they were younger,” Sherrie Kemp recalled. Sherrie led a healthy, active life until a few years ago when a debilitating and painful shoulder injury began limiting her mobility. “As I'd gotten older, it's gotten progressively worse. I couldn't sleep on my right shoulder, and lifting plates--even a small amount of weight would hurt.”
Sherrie grew up in church and always believed in healing, but despite her prayers, the pain persisted. “I'd been praying for healing for a long time – a very long time. And, you know, God has a reason for everything, so I just kept believing. I didn't give up.”

 In April of 2022, Sherrie turned on The 700 Club. “I watch The 700 Club typically every day if possible. I've been a member for a long time. And Gordon was speaking about right shoulder pain.”

“There’s someone else saying ‘right shoulder, right shoulder’ and you too are laying your left hand on that right shoulder,” Gordon had said. “And you are being healed. Just feel the presence. That joint is now loosened and you can raise your arm all the way up. Just do it now in Jesus’ name.” 

“The pain went away and I was moving my arm all over, moving it back and forth. I could never put it behind my back,” Sherrie remembered. “Now I can do everything. It's just amazing. Since that day, I've had full range of motion and no pain whatsoever. I'm able to exercise, lift weights, swim, which I do as much as I possibly can.” 

Since then she says the Lord has healed her in several other areas as well. “When I went to the doctor, he was telling me I need a knee replacement. I said, ‘No, thank you. Have a nice day.’ I came home and I prayed and I said, ‘God, you made me. You can heal me.’ And then it progressed from there. I mean, my knee is fine now. We only have one body and we have to take care of it so that He can use us for our purpose in life. That's what He's teaching me.”

Sherrie continues to lead an active life and wants to share what Jesus has done for her with everyone she can. “I can see Him working not in just my life, but in people around me. I just pour into people and God pours into me. I know that I have to overflow into others so that they can receive what God has for them as well. I want to leave a legacy of love inspired by the Lord God. I want everyone to know what He did in my life.”
