From a Knox County Jail & Bledsoe County Prison Women's Volunteer.
Often I will develop a relationship with an inmate at Knox County who will eventually end up at Bledsoe. The bond already established at Knox County is carried over when the person gets to Bledsoe and I have interaction with them they are on a different level. Such is the case with Jenny.
I had been experiencing many health issues this year and the inmates at Knox County and Bledsoe have been praying for me. The doctors were baffled I didn’t know quite what was causing it. Prior to a pulmonology appointment, Jenny approached me one night at Bledsoe and sat down beside me and told me that the Lord has been speaking to her telling her that something I was taking was poisoning me. I wasn’t quite sure what to think of that, but I could honestly tell that Jesus was working with her.
I went to the pulmonologist later that week and my lungs checked out clear and so did my heart, but the doctor and I began talking about supplements and discovered that I was massively overdosing on vitamin D3 to the point of causing toxic effects in my body. It was a potentially dangerous thing in this have been going on for about three years. I immediately thought of what Jenny had told me. After stopping my supplements, within two weeks all of my heart issues were resolved and I fell back to normal energy for the first time in several years. No more headaches, no more nausea and no more fatigue.
However, this testimony is not about me. It is about Jenny and the gifts of God within her and how the Lord worked through her that night to give me a word fitly spoken. I testified the next week at Bledsoe and praised God for how God had worked through her to speak what I needed to hear. It is truly a blessing to see God work through these women, to see them grow and to see them become stronger in their faith and determination to follow Christ and turn their lives around. To God be the glory!
