With all the advances in medical science, there are still some phenomena that doctors can’t explain, such as miraculous recoveries. This is exactly what happened to Paul Wood, from Lodi, California, and he believes he was cured by the grace of God.

Paul’s story

Several months ago, Paul started getting severe headaches and feeling dizzy. He went to his primary care doctor, who referred him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco. Paul’s brain scan showed a tumor.

But Paul wasn’t scared. He believed he would be fine as God would take care of it. "This is just a test of my faith, and that’s all it is," he recalled thinking in an interview on Fox & Friends. When Paul told his fellow church members about the tumor, they all started praying for his recovery.

The day before the surgery, Paul had another brain scan. What doctors saw on the images left them speechless: the tumor was gone!

Paul’s doctor, Dr. Richard Yee, told CBS Sacramento:

We do tests and we have medical technology and we try to come up with some conclusion… sometimes things happen that we can’t explain.

Paul’s miraculous recovery was not a surprise to members of Gravity Church, of which he is also a member. They believe Paul’s cure was the work of God. Jason McEachron, a pastor at the church, told CBS Sacramento:

He just kept saying, ‘no matter what happens to me, I’m going to be okay. I trust God.’ And that was an inspiration for a lot of people around him.

Paul volunteers for his local community, and he wants to use his extraordinary experience to help others. Doctors asked him to take part in a study, and that may (or may not) shed light on what exactly happened with him.

The power of positive thought and prayer is known to help people recover faster. But, as any doctor would tell you, faith alone may not be enough. Paul knows this, which is why he relied on the divine power and his doctors. If you experience any troubling symptoms, seek medical help.
