TESTIMONY
For at least 20 years I have been diagnosed with kidney disease. It was called stage 3 kidney disease even as of 5/29/15. Stage 3 means you have 2 abnormal lab values and a glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) under 60. The 2 abnormal lab values consisted of the Creatinine (Cr), blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and BUN/Creatinine Ratio. My lab values have been getting increasingly worse over the years. As of 5/29/15 my Cr was 1.47 (standard is 0.5 to 1.3), my BUN was 25 (standard 5-20), my BUN/Cr ratio was 17 (standard is 10.0-25) and my eGFR was 49 (standard above 60). I decided back in around the first of 2015 to pray each morning before I got ready for work to Jesus to restore my kidneys. I have done this every morning. Of course you don't notice anything with the type of kidney disease such as this so I just kept believing He was restoring my kidneys until I got a notice in the mail from the doctor’s office that it was time for another metabolic blood test. This was 8/27/15. I didn’t think much about it and just went and did it. Then the next day I was able to view the results on line and I saw my levels are now in the standard range. It was amazing! My Cr level is 1.27 (n=0.5-1.30), my CrBUN ratio was 12.6 (n=10.0-25) and my eGFR which reflects the kidneys perfusion rate has gone up to 58 (want to be at least 60 but close enough due to lab error etc.). This means I no longer exhibit kidney disease! I will continue to ask for restoration, however now I can be more specific and ask for the filtration rate to improve. God hears us always and just because you don't notice a miracle right away, don’t fret, just keep believing.
