The spot on my brain was gone, and whatever was once there had VANISHED and I was HEALED! I found out my stroke scan was clear at the end of January 2019. There was NO damage found. Hallelujah!
The long list of tests and possible surgeries ahead of me was no longer in sight. My nightmare was finally over! I hadn’t collapsed in several months (when it would have been normal for me to be collapse several times a day), but I started fighting another battle in my mind to believe that I was truly healed. I was exhausted and fearful thinking about the what ifs; “What if I collapsed again and they put me in a helmet like they said they would. What if I have another stroke or get another concussion,” the thoughts fought center stage of my mind. It was then that I felt God say to me through the Holy Spirit “I healed you, daughter. You are free! Now go and live. Tell of ALL I have done.”
I had to let go of the fear and trust that what God spoke to me was true. No matter what my mind told me, I had to take God at His word.
I took a deep breath and bravely stepped one foot out of my wheelchair. I arose from the seat and stood up in obedience to God’s call for me to “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” (John 5:8).
From that day on I haven’t collapsed once! I can now drive and function normally full of energy and vibrance to go and do as I please. Sweet Sisters, whatever God is calling you to walk in faith toward—do it. You won’t see the miracle unless you walk in faith. I could still be in my wheelchair afraid of the unforeseen future if I had not stepped out in obedience to God in is His call for my life.
We don’t know why some of us are healed now and some have to wait until eternity, but we do know this—God is good and there is nothing in our lives wasted. He will use our circumstances for our good, the good of others, and for His ultimate glory if we walk in obedience to God’s voice. No matter what is before us, walk in faith with joy. Never lose hope because He cares for you.
If you were ever doubting, let this be your reminder that God still does miracles today and answers prayer. Your miracle might not look like you think it should or happen in your own timing, but His timing and ways are without flaw. Don’t give up praying and believing for your healing. You may not see what He is doing, like I didn’t, but there is purpose in your now. He will use it all.
I have so many tears of gratefulness. Yet, my heart is so heavy for all you mamas still waiting for healing. I ask this question often. Why me? Out of all the people to be healed, why did you choose me? Have you ever asked God that question…Why me? I guess the only question for us to ask is “What now, God?” What do you want me to do next?
Arise and Shine mamas…
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” —Isaiah 60:1
What is next sweet mom is to SHINE His love & light as you tell of His glory. Your story like mine, will pour out hope and joy to those around you.
