The healing power of God begins in the spirit of a person. According to the Bible, God is not just interested in physically healing us but in healing broken hearts and reviving our spirit. Janie experienced the incredible grace and mercy of God in her life when she received the truth from God's Word at Be in Health®. She shared her wonderful journey of restoration and healing in God with us as she learned how to receive His love and apply His truth to her life. Now she can boldly say, 'God healed me!' Praise the Lord!
1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his anger [endureth but] a moment; in his favour [is] life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the morning. Psalm 30:1-5 KJV
Janie's testimony –How God healed me of all my diseases and from the torment of anxiety and depression
In December 2019, the book, A More Excellent Way (by Dr. Henry W. Wright) showed up on my doorstep in an Amazon envelope. To this day, I still do not know who sent it to me. However, once I picked it up, I could not put it down. At that time, I was in the darkest season of my life. Within the two years prior, three close family members, including my mother, passed away. Following that, my one remaining uncle nearly died from diabetic ketoacidosis. Due to disagreements on how to care for him, I was separated in relationship from my remaining family.
During this time, I began to have a sudden onset of tachycardia spells with no real explanation. I also started having a lot of strange symptoms. Through the greater part of the past ten years, I had gotten deeper and deeper into the new age movement, searching for answers and relief. However, I still attended church regularly and believed in the healing power of God; I even attended Christian College.
My desperate search for healing and deliverance
No matter what I tried, things continued to worsen. I got to the point where I would corner myself off in my bedroom and rock back and forth, begging God for mercy because the voices in my head were telling me every way that I was going to die—my days revolved around death, depression, and darkness that overwhelmed me. I had chronic health issues my entire life; however, I had never experienced anything like this.
My hands, fingers, feet, and toes became so stiff and swollen with lumps on them that I could not move them. I could hardly walk or stand; the pain was excruciating. I had been told by a 'healer' who was also a nurse that I had a heart problem, and I could drop dead at any given minute. I had a list of a hundred conditions spoken over me by numerous doctors and new age practitioners. These pronouncements didn't always make sense, yet still, I would speak these things over myself and come into agreement with them. I was told that I had over a hundred food allergies, so I was down to only four or five foods that I could eat. I was miserable but figured that was just the way things were. My skin was also covered in an autoimmune disease; my face looked about the same, except it was acne rosacea. I had boils almost all over me and in the most uncomfortable places, including inside my ears.
Questioning whether God can heal me
In addition to the voices telling me this or that was going to happen to me, or don't leave the house because it's not safe, I also had a broken spirit. Out of bitterness and anger, I accused day and night. I felt rejected not only by myself but by everyone I had ever known, and, along with all that I had a boatload of self-pity. I was deep in ungodly grief, unloving, and fear consumed me. I was so scared to close my eyes because of night terror that sometimes I would try to stay awake all night until my husband woke up.
Hope that God wanted to heal me
Needless to say, if it was in the A More Excellent Way book, I was dealing with it. As I read A More Excellent Way, everything started to make sense; I started to see the light. A few weeks after receiving the book, I called Spiritual Lifeline because I was suicidal. I had a bad tachycardia spell two days before, and I didn't know what to do. I don't know who answered the phone and prayed for me that day, but with God's help, they saved my life. The tachycardia stopped that day, and I began to heal. The minister on the phone suggested that I come to the For My Life Retreat at Be in Health. At that time, it wasn't possible because I wouldn't even leave my house, but they told me that God would make a way. Two days later, my dad called me and repented to me, and paid for me to do For My Life Online.
Finding healing in God through my overcomer journey
After completing the For My Life online, I would sometimes panic around people, and I began to face my fear of man by taking student's graduation pictures for four weeks in a row. Every time it rose up in me, I talked it down and cast it out in Jesus' name.
Then I saw a cardiologist and had some tests done; nothing was wrong with my heart. The following week, I saw an allergist, and my bloodwork and my white blood cell count were so normal that I didn't think it was my blood. My blood had been all over the place with a high white cell count for more than half my life. I eat a normal diet now, less a couple of foods I'm still working on taking back, and I have lost about twenty pounds while eating more food and thanking God for every little morsel.
I went to an endocrinologist and found out that I no longer have low thyroid levels. My pituitary gland is working great. My adrenals are also at peace.
Scriptures that God used to help me heal
I read Psalm 73 daily for several weeks; it helped me to walk out of the bitterness that was causing the pain in my hands and feet. It says, 'But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.' (Psalm 73:28). I also grew a new, very lovely set of toenails.
Some other scriptures that have been a mainstay for me are Psalm 91 and the book of Ephesians. These scriptures helped me walk out of a large portion of my skin issues; the improvement so far is amazing! God also helped me to walk out of rebellion, conflict, and self-conflict. Ephesians 6:12 really helped me with that, 'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.'
How God healed me and delivered me from anxiety and torment, and restored broken relationships
One day, I was riding in the car and was very anxious, as I was every time I left the house, and my husband said something, and it just left me. The fear, anxiety, and agoraphobia were gone! I hadn't driven for more than two years, so I faced my fears, as I do with most things that are trying to keep me stuck, and began driving. First, I took a passenger with me, and within three days, I was driving alone with God as my only passenger.
Although my relationship with many of my family members is yet to be repaired, I am so grateful for my restored relationship with my dad and with a couple of other family members. Romans 12:18 encouraged me greatly in this area, 'If at all possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.'
Most recently, I had my eyes checked, and the doctor told me that my optic nerves had healed and to keep doing whatever I was doing because that doesn't happen. I told her that I just got into a deeper relationship with God. She responded, 'Sometimes that's all it takes.' Her words were timely and simple when the world makes things complicated.
God healed me, restored my identity in Him, and continues to help me grow up in Him.
I don't even have one of the diseases on the list of 100 that had previously been pronounced over me. I am a work in progress and under construction, but I am moving forward by the grace of God, and I now know who I am in Christ. This quote by Dr. Henry Wright hangs on my wall, and I remind myself of it daily, 'I am not what I was, I am not what I shall be, I am in a state of change from Glory to Glory.'
