GodWink Stories: How Does God Help Me with My Medical Problems?

Part of the delight in authoring the When God Winks books is discovering where they are taking me. I distinctly remember the day the word Godwink blossomed in my mind . . . and thinking, My, what a friendly little word. Then saying, “Thank you Lord, for placing it there.” A word to fill a vacancy in the language for so‑called coincidences.

A Devotional

Chapter 2: Health

"When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted."

Psalm 138:3 NIV

Part of the delight in authoring the When God Winks books is discovering where they are taking me. I distinctly remember the day the word Godwink blossomed in my mind . . . and thinking, My, what a friendly little word. Then saying, “Thank you Lord, for placing it there.” A word to fill a vacancy in the language for so‑called coincidences.

Along my journey, I soon learned to disengage myself from thinking that I was the person writing these books. I am not. I write them down.

It was, therefore, another delight when the term Godwink Link popped into my head, for it seemed to perfectly identify the person who is the deliverer of a Godwink to you or me—the unwitting messenger who “just happens” to make a phone call at the perfect moment to give you encouragement; or bumps into you, out of the blue, and changes the course of your life through a new job or relationship; or places something precisely where you’ll see it for the purpose of giving you necessary information.

In fact, we are all Godwink Links at one time or another— innocent couriers for God, brightening someone’s day, or in some cases, providing that person with life-saving information.

That was the role of Dolly’s friend—a Godwink Link— as Dolly describes it in her letter.

Dolly’s Godwink Link

My husband and I annually visit close friends, Patty and her husband, at their cabin in West Virginia for a fun weekend. This particular visit was a Godwink for me.

Patty and I were in the kitchen, and she told me she’d gone to the dermatologist for a checkup the week before. While waiting to see the doctor, she watched a video about skin cancer. It raised her concern at first, but the doctor gave her great news—she was fine.

I was at the sink doing the dishes, wearing a tank top, when she came over to me and said, “Dolly, you have a mole on your back that looks funny, you should have it looked at.”
