She Came ThroughBarbara Mensah
I have listened to you, I have heard your request,
I’ve come to tell you that it’s only a test;
Just hold on, though your storm be strong,
Just hold on, this test is your storm,
But it won’t be long, go through, hold on.
These were the exact words I heard in my spirit at the emergency word of KOMFO ANOKYE TEACHING HOSPITAL. I can’t really remember the month, but the year was 2013, I had just started the first semester of my final year at the university.
I had actually lost count of the number of times my mother had been rushed to the hospital. Though it has been seven years on, I still remember it like yesterday. In every scream, every agony, I could literally feel the pain she was going through.
As I sat by the nurses, the man next to my mum at the emergency ward passed away. We had a long wait for a doctor to come around and attend to her, I couldn’t hold back my tears though others tried to console me.
I had to be consoled. Thus, it was just right that the friend, counsellor, sweet Holy Spirit dropped these lines into my spirit. All at once, I was at peace.
That was the last time I stepped into the emergency ward. Fast forward she was treated for free in the United States and has been healthy ever since. She will be 60 years in September.
