Well I’m new to this site, but I want to start with saying, god is so good, he is awesome. I have a son name Christopher Leon Phillips, he was shot and paralyzed in 1997 and it was one of the worse days of my life. It was gang related. And the lord spared his life, the young man shot at him more than eight times, and then he ran to my son’s window and stuck the gun in, and continued shooting, and my son later told me, Moma something knocked me to the floor, now I knew what it was that knocked him to the floor it was one of god’s angels. I was so thankful that the lord spared my sons life.
I was in California, visiting my sick mother, and I woke up that morning and packed my clothes, but I said to myself, why am I packing, oh well, and I sat down and watched TV. Then about 6:00 p.m. we got a call from Portland, Oregon. It was my brother saying my son had been shot. Now when my sister and I called the hospital, asking was my son going to die, it was the worse feeling I have ever had, waiting for the nurse to give us the answer, but she said, I’m not suppose to tell you this, but he is going to be alright, but he will never walk again. But the first thing that came to my mind was, I know a man from Galilee, so I got on the bus and headed to Portland, Oregon.
When I got to the hospital I walked in the hospital room, and I thanked god that my son was still alive. Then the lord started sending people in the waiting room to pray for me, there were people coming in that I had never met, all I could do was cry, and thank god for his goodness, for it was a time that I needed someone to pray for me and my son. Then I went back in the room where my son was, and he was crying and trying to get up, I didn’t know what was wrong, and I started to cry really hard, and my brother said sis, you have to leave, out of this room, because you can’t handle this thing.
So to make a long story short, the next morning they did an x-ray and they found a fragment of the bullet in his lungs, and that is what was making him unable to breathe. They removed it and he woke up and he started talking to me, about why god had sent him here, he said I know my purpose now mom, and then I said son, I always told you that god didn’t send you hear to gang bang and sell drugs, he has bigger plans for you. So I said that to say this never ever doubt god, for he is an awesome god, and when he tells you something believe him for he is real, and he can do anything, anything but fail.
