GNN Note – We never hear these types of stories on TV or radio – NEVER. The people running the TV and radio want us to believe Jesus Christ has been kicked to the curb – well, He hasn’t. Jesus comes is alive in the hearts of millions and He comes to life in the hearts of hundreds, thousands, ten of thousands or more every. single. day. / END
Football legend Deion Sanders recently shared how his faith in God guided him through a difficult and potentially deadly health struggle resulting in the amputation of two toes.
Sanders, now head coach at Jackson State University, credited the Lord with his healing in a recent interview with Chris Neely of “Thee Pregame Show.”
Trouble began for the 55-year-old Sanders in 2021, when he was diagnosed with blood clots in his legs after a surgical procedure and needed two toes on his left foot amputated.
He faced weeks in the hospital and eight surgeries. Despite the dire circumstances, the football star is now thanking Jesus for his recovery, The Christian Post reported.
“It was a blessing, because I could have lost my life very easily. … It was there. It was a thought process of losing my leg from the knee down,” Sanders said. “It was almost there. So when I look up and say ‘Thank you, Jesus,’ it’s because I know the quiet cries at night that were in that hospital.”
Watch him discuss these issues:
Sanders said he is “thankful” to have gone through the ordeal, adding it showed him more about God and his faith.
“I got to really see God’s face and the different personalities of God, I feel,” he said.
Throughout his hospital ordeal, the football great turned to prayer, explaining he spoke in tongues and praised Jesus during his stay.
