The Story of Jude…

I wrote this for a dear friend, but it has been resonating with me so much, that I decided to share it with my other friends too. Please feel free to share this note as you may be blessing them more than you could possibly know. This is a testament to the fact that that “With God NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE…”

Let me tell you the story of Jude: Jude (Judy) had stroke that affected the whole of her right side, her right arm was totally paralyzed And she had partial paralysis of her right leg. The attending neurologist told her that she would never regain use of her right arm. She, understandably was very distressed and when I came to see her as her primary care physician I found her crying, and visibly shaken by what she had heard. She said to me “Dr. Okulaja, the neurologist said I would never use my right hand again”. As God is my witness this is what I said to her. It was not medically appropriate, neither was it based on any scientific evidence whatsoever, but I said to her: “rubbish, rubbish, rubbish! You can do whatever you want to do. You just focus on getting better, and keep believing”. I don’t know how it happened, but Jude took me completely at my word. She kept believing and worked really hard. As of today, it has been approximately seven years since I left the state in which I was practicing at that time, and I will tell you that Jude took me out to a farewell dinner, at the end of the evening she signed the check with her RIGHT HAND! And she had eaten her meal totally independently, using a knife and a fork! I looked at Jude and I was inspired!! God has sees you and has been watching over you. And so to you also today, and on your behalf, to all those who have written you off, those who cannot understand the miracle that you are, I say, “Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish! You can do whatever you want to do. You just focus on getting better, and keep believing!”

“With God NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE…”
