9 Years Healed! 9 Lessons Learned

And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:2

Nine years ago today, the Lord miraculously healed me of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (declared a miracle by my fibromyalgia physician). For about 15 years, I was a walking pharmacy … pills to deal with the pain, pills to make me go to sleep, pills to wake me up, pills to counteract the side effects of the other pills.

Bright lights, loud noises, and strong fragrances bothered me. My husband, Keith, stopped wearing cologne during those years.

Most department stores place the perfume counters at the main entrances. I had to hold my breath, walk like a racer past the perfume counters (not easy for a fibromyalgia patient), and hope that I walked far enough to avoid a whiff of fragrance.

I feared getting into an elevator. At times, I was on the verge of a flair by the time the door opened, and I could escape the heavy perfume.

Fear, pain, fatigue, hopelessness, and brain fog vanished on November 21, 2010.

Then came the lessons.

Update to Breakthrough to Your Miracle Book Review

“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8

I am currently on the Breakthrough Online Event featuring the movie that airs tomorrow and Pastor Jason Noble’s book. I am disappointed that he is selling a study and a “13-Week Breakthrough Experience” for $129 (at a discount for people attending the event). Yes, God’s servants need to be provided for, but He gave so much to John and to the church through the miracles He performed after John was raised from the dead, couldn’t Pastor Noble have offered the “experience” for cost of production?

8 Things I’ve Learned from God’s Healing

On January 1, 2011, Keith and I were observing the San Diego Kite Club flying kites on the beach. A stranger came up to me and asked, “Would you like to have this kite?”  Almost six weeks after the Lord miraculously healed me of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Another test of my faith.

Do I have the energy and strength to get this heavy thing in the air? Continue reading 8 Things I’ve Learned from God’s Healing

5 Things You Can Do When the Healing Doesn’t Come

Life Path - 1

Ever feel like life is an uphill struggle with a multitude of barriers in your way? Are you suffering with a chronic illness or what you perceive as an impossible situation, and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight?

You and your doctor have tried everything you can think of: special diets, exercise, physical therapy, drugs, experimental treatments, prayer, healing services, and anointing with oil.

You’ve cried out to God, “WHY?”

You’ve searched your heart for secret sin and found nothing. Your faith is real, and it’s strong.

Still, you are suffering. What do you do? Continue reading 5 Things You Can Do When the Healing Doesn’t Come

8 Reasons to Believe God for Healing

Great Wall looking back
Six months after the Lord healed me, I climbed half-way up the Great Wall of China (only halfway because the bus was going to leave). I would not have been able to climb the steps without healing.

Wednesday will be the eighth anniversary of the Lord’s healing. On November 21, 2010, Jesus healed me of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, confirmed a miracle by my doctor. I struggled for about 15 years with pain, fibro fog, and other issues. I was about to resign from the job I thought God had chosen for me when God healed me. Sometimes, God brings those of us who are strong-willed and A-types to our knees in utter hopelessness before we will give Him control of our lives, our bodies, and our circumstances, even though we try. In our weaknesses, He is strong!

The next two days are dedicated to Jehovah Rapha, God our Healer. Continue reading 8 Reasons to Believe God for Healing
