Dissolving a Rock

3 year old Json was at church one Sunday evening, and was playing just outside the front doors as we were having worship. All of a sudden he started to cry, and his mom ran out to see what was wrong. Pretty soon she came carrying him back in, and she wasn't really sure what to do next.

While he was playing outside, he had stuck a rock, somewhat larger than a pea, up his nose, and now he was crying because he wanted it out. His mom brought him to me to see what we should do, and although we could see the rock, it was too far up for us to simply remove it with our fingers.

As we were looking for something that we could use to carefully extract the rock, you guessed it, Json sniffed, and much to our disappointment, we watched the stone disappear out of sight into his nasal cavity.

It was out of our hands now, and so we gathered around little Json to pray for him before his parents left to take him to the emergency room.

I planned on praying and asking the Lord to make the rock come back out of his nose, but as I began to pray the Lord spoke to me and said, "Ask Me to dissolve the rock where it is." I think subconsciously I wanted to see the rock come out so that I would know God had answered our prayers, but I obediently prayed and asked God to dissolve the rock where it was.

After having prayed for Json, we sent them off to the emergency room and finished our service.

A little while later I received a phone call from Json's mom. She said that they had taken numerous x-rays at the hospital, and although we had all witnessed the rock being sucked up into Json's sinus cavity, the x-rays showed absolutely no trace of it anywhere, or any damage at all!

The Lord showed me later that the rock had gone far enough in that there was no real way for it to come back out without hurting him even more, so that was why He had me pray and ask Him to dissolve it instead.

I never cease to be amazed at the things God will do for us when we need Him, and simply reach out to Him for help!
