“The Impossible”: Miracle Story of a 14-Year-Old Who Came Back to Life
Written by Christi Given | February 19, 2018
Recently on Christian radio, on the program Building God’s Kingdom in Media, I had the honor to interview Joyce Smith, author of The Impossible, and Pastor Jason Noble with Reaching Out Radio’s Ambassador Elisa. The radio show featured the story of 14-year-old John Smith, who fell into an icy Missouri lake one day and died for 60 minutes.
John’s mother, Joyce, a praying woman of faith, never claimed her son died. She never spoke it out and never believed it. She stood on God’s Word and experienced a Lazarus-type of resurrection, similar to the story in the Bible when Jesus raised him up again (read John, Chapter 11).
Listen to the whole story below:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)
The nurses and doctors were even astonished at the boy’s resurrection story and testimony. It has been three years since the event took place and FOX Studios is planning on making a feature film with DeVon Franklin about John’s supernatural experience. This story reminds me of a Miracles From Heaven type of story.
PI readers, have you seen God heal someone or do you need a miracle? Believe and ask God in faith. He said if you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. Faith pleases God; doubt and fear comes from the enemy. Stand on God’s Word (the Bible) and His truth and power. God is able to do what you are waiting for, but better! (Ephesians 3:20)
