2 Corinthians 4:16-18  So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,  as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Pins and needles may also NOT have an anatomical cause. It can be related to a chronic pain syndrome or ANXIETY. A home strengthening exercise program and heat packs can help alleviate the symptoms. Don’t worry about anything but put it in prayer to God is the answer to anxiety, then trust and rely on Him.

Hi Gift (great name, by the way)
I have witnessed healings when calling on the name of Jesus. My mum, dad and older sister cried out to Jesus when my sister’s toddler girl drowned in our back yard pool. The doctors said she would be in a vegetative state at best but my family believed for our baby to be fully healed, fully restored, and our baby WAS fully healed and fully restored. Soon after that she was running around the ward being a nuisance to the nurses! She did very well all through school and is now a mother and a wedding photographer and a real estate property manager. Praise God!
