10 Years Healed! A Name For Each Year

Come and listen, all you who fear God,
and I will tell you what he did for me.
For I cried out to him for help,
praising him as I spoke.
Psalm 66:16-17

There is no cure for fibromyalgia.

Brain fog, pain, fatigue, and depression plagued me for about 15 years.

Pills for pain, pills for sleep, pills to wake me up, pills to counteract the effects of the other pills, and handfuls of supplements filled my days and nights.

The work that I thought God had placed before me demanded too much from me, and my doctor encouraged me to resign.

One Saturday, I told God that I must have misunderstood His direction and that I would resign that Monday.

Key to Answered Prayer

We’ve lived in the Philippines, Italy, the East Coast, the West Coast, and the Midwest. Keith was in the Air Force for 22 years, and he transferred to different locations every three or four years. A woman asked my pre-teen daughter where she was from.

“No where.” No place to call home.

Shoulders almost touching my ears, head thrust toward Kristin, I explained that she was born in Oklahoma and her home was the world.

Didn’t make her feel better.

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?
