I really am healing.
The process has been long but I believe God has His hand in every single step. It started with a large amount of people praying for my healing and many communicating to me they believed I could be healed and a few people telling me that I would be healed. If you have read my blog through the past year you know I have believed God would heal me some day. I really was not sure if it was this side of heaven or the other side but I have truly believed in my coming healing.
I have been thanking God for my healing for years. In spite of the progression of this nasty illness I thanked Him for healing. In spite of waking up in pain during the night and struggling with rising in the morning I would thank Him for my healing. I kept on keeping on. 😉
About three or four months ago I created a ‘Dream Board’. I typed out things like ” I am healing. I am loved. I am valued.” Then I typed out other things I was believing him for in our finances, my writing accomplishments and more. I wrote down things that I felt I was supposed to believe God for but I knew in my flesh were HUGE and if it were up to me, depending on me, I could not do it. They were Big Hairy Audacious Goals and many of them were far beyond my imagination.
Two months ago, during a prayer meeting, the most precious couple came in and we had the privilege of meeting them for the first time, interceding for them, encouraging them and blessing them. The husband had a brain tumor and he was not doing well. It was through this encounter that I could not stop thinking and praying for them and this precious woman could not stop thinking about little ole me . She began praying for me all while she was walking a difficult road with her husband. They traveled to Mexico for treatment and she still kept thinking of me. When they got home he unfortunately transitioned into a coma and within five days he passed away. Just a few days of her husband passing away this gift of a woman reached out to me with love and compassion. She offered to me the Immune Therapy her husband was supposed to take. And of course, I was beyond humbled and absolutely willing to receive this gift!
Within the first few weeks I was able to wake up without feeling the heaviness and pain. I began to have moments and days where my brain felt clear and I was actually able to think clearly. The mild eczema on my arms began to clear. Jason noticed my mental state was getting better. I was more jovial and less irritable. A week later while walking from a parking lot to a community pool a friend noticed how much better I was moving in the high heat.
Within a few weeks of starting the Immune Therapy I started coffee enemas and implementing them every other day. At the beginning of the sixth week I was able to drive longer than I had in a long time even with traffic. My brain was able to focus for the drive. That was HUGE! It was just last year at this time that I could barely drive around the corner to music lessons. Holy Toledo! Rejoicing!! I just realized yesterday morning while showering that I could stand and shave my legs. I have not been able to do that in years. Every time I tried to look down to shave I would have shooting nerve pain from my neck down and it would cause a dangerous weakness. Because of that weakness I always sat down to shave. Hallelujah, that is an experience of the past!
The detoxing process has not always been so fun. I began to break out and have an increase in nerve sensitivity and headaches. I also had itchiness in my arms. This was all a part of the detoxing, healing process. There are no negative side effects of this therapy only that which are a part of of the cleansing and those are up and down. It is worth every bit of the healing!
It has been eight weeks and I have more energy, sleeping through the night and able to wake up in the morning. I am taking Alteril, a natural sleep aid just to make sure my body is able to have at least two full cycles of REM sleep. This is vital to the healing process. I have emotional ups and downs and energy roller coasters because I am living real life still. I am team working with my husband, homeschooling my children, managing and caring for my home and keeping up mildly with ministry life in the midst of healing. I highly recommend people to visit the treatment center in Mexico and to allow their body the rest time away for healing. They help you with eating for healing and walk you along the path of restoring your body to homeostasis. Click here to visit the website to get more info.
I do believe I am having significant results due to my obedience to God’s guidance and my willingness to eat clean, exercise and care for myself. I have had this disease for at least eighteen years. When I was diagnosed six years ago I was told I had been aggressively attacked via MS and although I had a few years without progression I had a series of relapses that affected by bladder and bowels and much more. We are standing in awe at the results in such a short time. Due to clinical trials and current results, our expectation is that this disease will stop attacking and reverse some, if not all of the symptoms. I may be able to stop this treatment in a few months or years and I may have to take it the rest of my life due to the severe amount of damage previously done but I am willing to trust God for the process of my healing and His faithful provision.
I am humbled by my healing. I am humbled to be apart of dear Patty and Mark’s story. I am humbled that this is God’s story in me.
I do not know your story. I may never know your story but please, please with all my heart I plead with you to never, never lose hope. Speak positive words about your future even if you cannot fathom life being any better. Speak thanksgivings to God over and over and over again and combat the enemies lies with God’s truth. We have been praying Psalm 91 for the past six months and believing God’s promises for His people.
“I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust. For He will save you from the trap of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you and protect you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall. You will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noon.” Psalm 91:2-6
Think on these verses this week. Ask God how He wants you to believe Him for His promises of truth.
Isaiah 53 says “Surely He took up our infirmities (maladies, anxieties, calamity, disease); and carried ( to bear, carry, to lift up) our sorrows (pain), yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the chastisement that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds (bruised, stripes, blows) we are healed (mended, cured, to make healthful).” The added words are the Hebrew meaning of the word.
By His stripes we are healed.
He sees you. He has not forgotten or forsaken you. Praying you know that truth today. Praying you have a renewed zeal to believe Him against doctor’s diagnosis, man’s opinions, feelings and emotions and anything that stands against the truth.
You are loved.
