The following testimony was submitted by Donna Martindale

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. Luke 18:42 (KJV)

My sight was declining.

Last year, I visited my regular optometrist because my vision was no longer correctable with a new prescription. I was referred to an ophthalmologist for some detailed exams. My left eye was diagnosed with a disease called macular pucker.

Blind Receive Sight

Macular Pucker is a condition where scar tissue forms on the macula, located in the retina, causing blurred and distorted vision. 

The only cure is a delicate surgery which is not always successful, and the post op is very grueling.  The ophthalmologist referred me to a retina specialist. After a week, I wrote a letter to my doctor telling her that I appreciated her expert advice, however, I would not be seeing a specialist at this time.

I was going to make it a matter of prayer, and believe that the Lord would heal me, and that I would see her in a year for another check-up.

After receive sight

Last week I went in to see her again, trusting that the Great Physician had done a good work. As the doctor checked the new images taken of my retina, she turned and  looked at me and said, “Donna, a healing has definitely taken place!” I was so excited, I cried out. “Oh, praise you Jesus!” and she replied, “And I am praising Him right along with you!”


I am so very grateful, humbled, and excited because of the goodness and faithfulness of our God!  I want to shout it from the house top with my hands lifted up, “Thank you Father, thank you Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit!” Lamentations 3:25&26 says, The Lord is good to those who wait for Him; to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. To God be all the glory for the things he has done! I love you Lord!
