Good Morning Beauties,
Yesterday I shared my physical healing testimony and also celebrated a few women in my life that prayed for me during my season of being sick and healing. Being that it is Women’s history month, I thought it would be appropriate.
In October of 2017 I got bronchitis which then turned into asthma.
I had to use nebulizer for about two months, couldn’t sleep and went to the ER, because I felt like I was suffocating and the inhaler wasn’t working nor the nebulizer.
While in the ER the doctor was asking me questions and she made a comment and said that my immune system was in chaos, being that I was allergic to so many things I never use to be allergic too. I thought this was interesting, because when I had gone to the healing rooms to get prayer that was one of the insights someone got while praying over me.
Now prior to even going to the healing rooms and ER, my husband really felt that it was stress that brought it on, stress at work, stress and anxiety, fear and worry over a loved one.
At the time I really didn't think it was stress, I just thought it was from the bronchitis, but what brought on the bronchitis?
I thought back and I was very tired and stressed from work and wasn’t getting enough sleep so I believe it weakened my immune system.
Stress can also cause sickness in our bodies and affect us in so many ways.
I became allergic to cold and dusty environments and so many foods I was never allergic too.
I couldn’t sleep in my bed, because I felt like I was suffocating so had to sleep in the living room. Some nights only had a few hours of sleep if even that, because the steroids kept me up.
Of course I prayed, my husband prayed and I had my friends and sisters in Christ pray for me, where ever I could put myself on a prayer chain I did.
I started going to the healing rooms in the prayer room and every time I would go I would feel so much better there, I could breath, I felt peace and rest.
But as soon as I would go back home I would be the same way so it was a clue that God wanted me to continue getting prayer in the healing rooms and soak in the prayer room. This is where I would feel so much peace. I didn’t realize I was carrying stress, fear and anxiety.
God wanted me to hand everything I was carrying on my shoulders to Him. To surrender all my worries and not fear for the future.
I also started eating healthier, organic and taking supplements to help my body heal.
I would take supplements for my lungs and lots of vitamin c and this green tea my friend Kim advised me to take, so I was doing everything I knew to do, eating healthier, staying away from all the foods that I was allergic too.
As I continued going to healing rooms and prayer room, soaking in worship and eating healthier and taking supplements. I started getting better and it will be 10 months without having to use inhaler and nebulizer or any steroids and I am also able to eat those foods I was allergic too, but I do stay away from all gluten, wheat, GMO products.
I give God all the glory.
The lord gave me this scripture Jeremiah 30:17 and Jeremiah 33, the whole chapter is the promise of restoration.
“But I will restore your health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 30:17 (NIV)
He promised me he was going to restore my health and that He has. He has kept His promise to me.
Because it is women’s history month and we are celebrating women I wanted to personally celebrate these women in my life, my mother who prays for me all the time, my sisters in Christ Julie, and Mary who prayed for me countless of times during this time, Kim for introducing me to supplements for my lungs, my other friend Juli, who also introduced me to probiotics and supplements I am taking now to help with energy and getting my hormones in balance and lose weight.
And so many of my Facebook friends and family that have prayed for me.
God is faithful. God hears your cry and your prayers. Don’t give up.
Keep asking, keep believing and keep on standing on His word.
