My name is Renaye Thompson. On 9-24-12 my husband and I were side swiped by a car. We were on a motorcycle and the came left of center and struck us. When I tried to get off the motorcycle, I couldn’t put any pressure on my left leg. I thought I was just in shock. We went to the hospital, had x-rays and they said nothing was broken. But I still couldn’t stand on it and the pain was getting worse. By the end of the week the pain was so sever and my leg was swollen so bad, that I was sent to an orthopedic specialist. It felt like anyone that touched my leg was using a blow torch on it. My pain level would stay between 8-10. He done test on me and diagnosed me with RSD/CRPS which is a permanent nerve disease.
Over the years we have gone to specialist after specialist. I have been told that I would never walk again. I had 1 doctor tell me that I could have my leg removed from the knee down. But I would most likely still have the phantom pain. I told him no, that when I walk again, it would be on my leg. Around 5 ½ years later, 2-21-18, I was in Indiana to have some treatment done on my leg to try to get some of the pain to quit. While I was there, my husband told me that a pastor friend (Bro. Markham) text him and said for him to get in contact with Bro. Hurt. He wanted him to come and pray for my healing. So, Tom contacted him. Bro. Hurt has such a spiritual calm and confident demeanor about him, when he talked to us in that room and led us in prayer that our faith was boosted, and I then learned to put faith into action.
When he told us that fear was a spirit and we needed to pray it out of the room. I feel as if we all were in one accord and that is when faith stepped into action literally. As we were praying, Bro. Hurt told me to take a step, then another one and another one. For the first time in 5 ½ years I was walking. I or Tom had never experienced this type of miracle in person and we are so thankful for all that listened to God and made it possible for Bro. Hurt to come and pray for me. God is so Amazing!
