Jesus healed me!

 

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Isaiah 53:5

Below is my original blog post regarding how Jesus healed me completely of a genetic disease that has afflicted me from birth. It had made me crippled and in pain for much of my adult life.

In addition to healing me from that, about two months later, the Lord healed me from intense allergies to gluten and nuts. He doesn’t do anything halfway – HALLELUJAH!

This is a rather disjointed testimony and doesn’t include the story of the latter healing (it’s referenced in this post about Healing, Allergies and Soul Ties). I’m posting it all here for now, and doing a major re-write so that the world knows what God has done for me!

If you are ill or in pain and you know Jesus, take heart: You do not walk alone. He may not answer your prayer for healing today, but trust that He hears you and that He will answer. We must walk by faith and not by sight. Remember that the children of Israel prayed for Messiah to come for many years, but the Bible says that “in the fullness of time, Jesus came. (Gal. 4:4)” God answers all prayers in that way: in the fullness of time.

Dancing for Jesus
God is doing a work in me ~

it’s like nothing I ever expected, could have asked, or imagined.

Most folks know that I have (had? heh) a genetic joint condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It causes, among other things, joint subluxations and dislocations, along with hypermobility. I’ve had to wear splints on my fingers for some time (they’re pretty – look like silver rings) because without them, my fingers would bend backwards and to either side. (The hand therapist nearly cried when she felt of my hands, they dislocated so easily at every joint). I had a hard time typing w/o them, punching buttons on the microwave, things like that. The splints served as sort of an exoskeleton for my fingers to keep them from bending too far or even dislocating.

I also was in a wheelchair for a season. At first, I thought that getting the chair would be a good thing as I’d been in considerable pain and had been dragging myself around on a cane. The doc said my hips were degenerating (another facet of EDS is arthritis and early osteoporosis). So the chair gave me mobility but it also took away my independence. I couldn’t simply take off to the store any more, someone had to help me load and unload it from the car. We toyed with outfitting the van we’d bought to carry the chair with a lift, but that’s pretty expensive.

One day, I read in my Bible, in John 11, “21 Then Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.””

I’m not sure why I equated that passage with healing in that moment, but I began from that day to cry out to God earnestly to heal me. No more “well, I know that when I get to heaven…” I wanted to be able to live my life, pain free, in the here and now, not limited by physical handicap, and I sought Him. Back around Thanksgiving of last year, I felt that I’d had a breakthrough (and everyone around me did, too – people at church and in the neighborhood said, “What’s happened to you?” Well, I started walking. At first it was dragging myself around on the cane, then hobbling, then walking w/the cane just for balance with the occasional relapse. Which is where I’ve been until this weekend.

Now, around the time this all started, God whispered to my heart, “You’re going to dance for Me.”

I’ve never been able to dance and have always wanted to … so the double promise was staggering. At first I was tempted to think, “well… yeah. Right.” But one night a woman at Calvary (our old church) that I’d never seen before or since came up to me and said that she’d had a vision of me dancing joyously before the Lord, and God had confirmed to her that it would be on this side of heaven. Talk about tears flowing!! I clung to that promised and prayed for Him to complete the good work He’d begun in me.

Months passed. Incrementally, I’ve gotten better and better each week – but it’s been a “two steps forward one back” process… and sometimes a three or four steps back and start again sort of thing. But I’ve gotten to the point where my morphine level’s are way down, most days I can function really well, and I’m enjoying a relatively *good* existence.

God wasn’t satisfied with that, I guess. icon_mrgreen

Friday morning I was up early, went outside and prayed, came in and made myself some coffee, and sat down at the computer. Only a few minutes later my hands started to HURT SO BAD that I had to tear the splints off! The pain felt like when nerves heal – that electical-shooting-ZING! It lasted for about an hour at that intensity and has been slowly subsiding since. I still get “shocks” now and then but not so bad. I’m surprised I didn’t tear off my skin getting those splints off as they fit quite snugly!!

So I’m sitting there in pain, and holding my hands, massaging my fingers because they HURT – and I realize that they’re not bendy. AT ALL. Won’t bend backwards, won’t bend sideways, and the “forward” motion into a fist is normal and not overextended the way it had been. My eyes got real big at that point but my hands hurt too bad to process much of anything!

Over the day, as the pain went down, I started to check them out more – and sure enough, I’ve got normal range of motion in my hands. icon_eek confused icon_mrgreen

Other times I’ve taken the splints off, I’ve had to be very careful because they’re so used to being splinted, there’s no muscle tone or anything, and bones pop right out of joint. But now – it’s no more bendy than Ken’s fingers (we checked!)

I even went and worked over @ the church on Saturday, using my hands for all sorts of things, unsplinted.

So … Sunday rolled around. First Sunday am @ our new church, and it’s homecoming. Had an excellent preacher, had lunch on the grounds, and then we had singing. Now, my church has a Latino church that uses the facilities Sun afternoons, and so they came for lunch too, and joined us to all sing together and worship the Lord. It was awesome Smiley We had an interpreter for the spoken parts, but once the singing started – we all just sang and worshiped. Have you ever heard the phrase, “The Holy Spirit fell…” Well, the Spirit fell in that place – we didn’t get home from morning church until after 6pm.

Here’s the best part: about the 5th song into the set that the Latino church was doing – an exuberant fast-and-faster sort of hand-clapping song – all of a sudden I felt like my body just had to MOVE. And I was dancing for the Lord.

Words just cannot express the emotion I have as I type those words …. “I was dancing” …. to see that promise fulfilled is –

I’m just overcome by the goodness of God. Literally completely swept-off-my-feet overcome.

We came home last night, slept like babies all night long, woke up this morning feeling so great I took Lucy for a walk (I never take Lucy for a walk – she pulls and it hurts. But this morning she pulled and it didn’t hurt icon_mrgreen Praise the Lord!)

Last Friday night (the Friday before the Sunday, so to speak) we were at a Missions Conference at Calvary. The speaker, Greg Johns, talked about time and how “in the fullness of time” is God’s way of doing things. Sometimes, certain things, people, places, and events need to come first, in order for a thing to take place. I’m guessing that’s what happened? I think back to all of those trips to the altar to have the elders pray for me, at Calvary – asking and asking in faith. God heard every time! All the times that I was huddled in pain, praying – He heard, He knew, and indeed He was there comforting me in it. But it wasn’t the “fullness of time” for healing me yet; there must have still been things to accomplish. There may yet be things He needs to work out with this but, akin to the blind man in John 9 who once said “I was blind but now I see” – I can say, “I once had bendy fingers that popped right out of joint and now they won’t, even with some force applied. I once was in too much pain to walk, but now I am walking without pain. I’ve never been able to dance my whole life – and pain has prevented me from even trying – but I DANCED FOR THE LORD YESTERDAY.”

God is awesome beyond our wildest imagination and WORTHY to be praised!

_____________________________________________________________________

Addendum

The following Tuesday I took the handicap tag from my car. When I did, it disintigrated into bits. I took that as a sign.

The next day, I went to see my orthopedic doctors. About six weeks ago, I hurt my right wrist and was scheduled to see Dr. Li, a surgeon, to see if scoping my wrist might help. The pain in the wrist had gone away at the same time as everything else. At first I was simply going to cancel the appointment, but then I thought – nah! I want to see what the doctor thinks of all of this!

First, I went and checked in. Saw Rosemarie, one of my favorite people there :) She said, “Kathi, you’re glowing!” That’s what everyone says. It’s the power of God and my joy. :) I danced in the lobby of Comp Rehab at Baptist Hospital. How about that? hehehehehehe… She cried, she was so happy for me.

Dr. Li examined my wrist first and pronounced it not only “fine” but “remarkably stable” (no one’s ever said that of me before :::grins:::) He looked at the other and said the same. He even tried to hyperextend the joint – couldn’t do it.

I asked, “Since I’m here, would you give an unbiased opinion on my fingers?” I told him the reason Dr. Koman had put me in the splints, and told him about the nerve pain and that I’d had to take the splints off, and that they seemed to be fine now. He said that my fingers were somewhat flexible at the hand but certainly not beyond normal range, and that at the other joints they were perfectly normal. And stable. They couldn’t be dislocated.

I just grinned.

Then I went dancing off to my regular hand doctor’s. I wasn’t scheduled to see them, but a form had been sent to me for my daughter’s school by their dictation department, and they’d forgotten to get the doctor to sign it first. So I went in to see if she could sign it, and when Susan saw me, she said, “Kathi, you’re glowing! What’s up?” So I began to tell her my story, and her eyes got bigger and bigger. She looked at my fingers and pronounced them “medically impossible – but WOW!” Then I told her how I was walking around and had removed the handicap tag from my car and how I had danced in church. She asked me to add her to my prayer list. You bet!

It’s really odd – I was SO hypermobile before. Could “beyond” touch my toes. Now I can barely reach them. Could reach one hand over my shoulders and the other behind my back and clasp them – now I can barely touch them. Could touch my thumb to my wrist, now it doesn’t touch. Could lay my hands flat on the wall, now it hurts to try. My husband says that it’s like I’ve become normal.

Me! Normal, by the grace of God! Hallelujah!

    I am happy and excited to read about your testimony! I want to thank you for sharing your testimony. It helps to build faith and belief for healing and miracles. I am believing for a miracle for myself and my son. My son was born with Cystic Fibrosis and he just turned 29 years old. He has suffered with this disease all of his life. I went completely deaf in my right ear in January 2006 with tinnitus. I am believing for healing for both myself and my son. Reading testimonies like this inspire me to keep on believing and not to give up hope. God bless you for sharing.

  • Guitarstomp

    I was wondering how you have been since getting your healing? Are you totally normal now? Have your doctors reversed the diagnosis? Are all the symptoms totally gone? Did you have collagen problems with wrinkles and saggy skin and if so did your appearance go back to normal? Was it vascular and if so is your cardiovascular system back to normal?

    • Anonymous

      Hi Guitarstomp!

      I was healed in September 2006, so over four years. Yes – I am totally normal now except for the two joints I had surgery on (jaw and thumb). My jaw, which gave me troubles for years, is still not “normal” but there is no pain and no popping any more. My thumb is fused at the 2nd joint, but I am believing for a creative miracle and full restoration.

      When I walked into my doc’s office a few days after my healing, she nearly fainted. I got to see one of the PA’s two years ago, after a car accident and a relatively minor injury to my hand. He expressed curiosity about my healing so I invited him to test my joints, and he muttered about things that could not be understood.

      Symptoms TOTALLY gone. TOTALLY. I’m not sure I could dislocate a joint WITH force, much less without force like I used to. I had to wear braces on nearly every joint in my body, from fingers to ribs to knees. No more!

      No pain, no pain, no pain, hallelujah! I used to take morphine like candy, not because I was addicted, but because the pain was so intense. Most of the pain came from my ribs, which would fold in upon themselves.

      No skin stretchiness. I hadn’t progressed to the point of wrinkles. And all my hypertrophic scars are fading. That is a gradual process, but big ugly scars that I had for years are going and some are even gone.

      My cv system was relatively normal except I did blow the vein of every IV I ever had. Haven’t had the opportunity to test whether that will happen now, and hope I never find out! :)

      I can run and play like any 40-year old kid now. In fact, I took the dogs for a run at the park the other day. Never could have done that before!

      Hope this answers your questions… feel free to ask more!

      Remember, though, a testimony of what God did is like a pre-history of what He will do again. What he did for me, He will do for you.

      • Guitarstomp

        Please pray for me, I have what the drs think is a collagen disease developing. My skin has become grossly loose and stretchy and I am covered in lipoma tumors, and other related complications have been developing rapidly. I am a 32 year old male and lived a pretty normal healthy life until this started showing up around 5 years ago. I want to be and look normal again, I am praying everyday for God to restore my body.

          In the name of Jesus, I release the Kingdom of God over Guitarstomp and
          declare full healing to his body…. that skin would be normal… all tumors
          disappear… AMEN!

          • Guitarstomp

            When you had EDS was your skin affected by it, like was it all loose and stretchy and collagen diffident, and did it go back to normal with your healing?

          • Anonymous

            Hi again! My skin was moderately affected – loose and stretchy but not to
            the point that you could grab it and pull the way some people with EDS can.
            It was very soft (softer than a baby’s skin) and very easily damaged; I had
            lots of cigarette paper scars and a few keloids. I also bruised VERY easily.

            After my healing, my skin became normal, and many of the scars (of all
            types) have faded and some are totally gone. My old appendix scar no longer
            breaks open, either, and even though it’s still visible it’s faded a lot. I
            don’t bruise easily any more either. My skin isn’t soft like that any more
            either. And I’m now capable of building calluses, something I never did in
            my entire life before the healing!

            Continuing to pray for you!

            Curious… what part of the country are you from?

    Praise Jesus that’s awesome!!! I’m convinced that God takes his time to heal people, just so he can do it, when all seems hopeless. Just to prove to people that with faith all things are possible and noone is ever beyond hope. I too have been healed after years of dealing with hearing scary voices and having migraines. The devil told me I’d never be off of psych meds and God showed him up for the liar that he is!!! I am now pain free, delusion free and fear free. I know that we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us. God is for us, so nothing can be against us! Never stop shouting the wonders of God’s power to everyone! Praise the Lord for he is good and his mercy endures forever!

    Hi Kathi,

    Your story really encouraged me tonight. I have been really pressing into God
    for healing for 16 years and things seem to get worse. I had accidents, skull
    fractures, 2 infected teeth, more skull fractures and micro fractures, infections,
    more surgeries, 21 rounds of antibiotics, mal absorbsion, mineral, vitamin, and
    amino acid deficiencies and I haven’t been able to lie down for almost 5 years.
    It is painful to chew, talk, move. I have become home bound essentially, but was
    very active 16 years ago before all this happened. Played tennis, was a
    manager, traveled all over.  I live in unbearable pain and keep reminding
    God that He promised to restore health to me, restore my youth and restore the years
    the locust has eaten. No doctor has ever promised me that, so I keep going to Him
    for healing. Please pray for my miracle. I believe Lord, help my unbelief. At
    times it is so hard to keep pressing on!  I so want to be normal again and tell others that God has healed me. I keep saying Lord, Glorify yourself. Blessings! KF

I just read this to my children and they loved it too.  We are believing for a sore tooth today and an infection I’ve been battling for 2 years.  I was thinking a lot of what you said, God does hear every prayer! I’m writing a healing song for people who don’t know God’s truths or just need to reaffirm them in hard times.  I thought they could just learn the song and sing it to receive the healing the Lord is waiting to bring them too.  For me as well.  You are a treasure, never quit sharing and being so bold for HIM!!!

    Hi, I’m a girl that just got diagnosed with EDS today which explains a lot of weird symptoms I’ve been experiencing lately. But I’m sad, I don’t want it.. I know Jesus can heal any disease, I just want to know how I should pray. Should I stop think of all the symptoms I got and just focus on Jesus healing me? Thanks for your blog, it’s encouraging and hopeful!

      Hi Hope, sorry for the delay in getting this posted… having a whirlwind here as school ended and work picked back up.

      The Bible says that the power of life and death is in the tongue, and so therefore our confession is important. There are things that are facts, and we often can’t ignore those – but even as we deal with what HAS to be dealt with (and yes, as much as possible, ignore the rest), we also need to confess the Truth… the Truth is a Person, His name is Jesus, His atoning work on the cross provided for my healing, and it is finished!

      Praying for you!!
      -Kay

      I’m from india . Last year I was daignosed and reported with B.P, Diabetes, High Cholestrol, Fatty Liver etc..However the Love of God healed me.. Receiving healing from God is simple..But you really hav to fought with devil.. Here are some bible scriptures that I prepare for myself to meditate upon..

      Exodus 15:26 – For,
      I am the LORD that healeth thee.

       

      Isaiah 53:5  – With His
      stripes we are healed.

       

      1 peter 2:24 – By
      his stripes you were healed.

       

      2 Cor 5:7 – We
      walk by faith, not by sight

       

      Psalm 118 :17 – I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.

                                                                                                                    

      Jeremiah 29:11 – For
      I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord.  “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
      plans to give you hope and a future.”

       

      1 Peter 3:9 – Do not returning evil for
      evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called
      for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.

       

      Philippians 4:6 – Be anxious for nothing, but in
      everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
      made known to God.

       

      Philippians 2:13 – For
      God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and

        Hi Sri! Great list of scripture, thanks for posting it!

        I do disagree with one thing, though – we don’t have to fight the devil. he is defeated! I’m going to try to make time to blog about this later today; check back and chime in with your thoughts about what I write!

        Blessings!

    Thank you Sri and Lundbybc for your advice and Bible scriptures, I wrote them down on a paper and now I have them next to the Bible and read them aloud..
    Kay, thanks for your answer and your prayer! I believe Jesus can heal me!
    I try to stop think of all the symtoms, its so tough when it get worse and I have to repeat it to all doctors I meet.

    I’ve always been double jointed but not that it caused me problem. Through the last 2 years I’ve lost muscles all over the body, I’m more flexible than ever,  my subcutaneous fat is gone, my blood vessles are now visible at my temples, my jaws, chest, hands and legs. I get bruises easily, I can bend my thumb to the arm and my fingers backwards, my skin is so thin and dry and “doughlike” and looks a lil old I feel how fragile it is, my blood pressure and heartrate are so low. I don’t know if it has to to do with EDS but I lost so much hair that now I just have hair laying flat on my skull, all these symtoms make me feel depressed. Every time I see a doctor I have to repeat all symtoms, and it my physiotherapist was the third to comfirm today that it looks like have EDS but said that it wasn’t normal for me to have that little hair. I got problem with my eyes and ache in my eyemuscles and there are more symtoms too but I just feel tired to write it out. Next week I’m gonna get some special sandals that will help me so walking wont hurt that much. I’m tired of having ache. And after that await other doctor appointments again. But I want to be healed by Jesus!

    This weekend I’m gonna stay at a christian place where you get two people praying for your healing through the two days. I’m scared what will come up within me but I want everything within me that is in the way just to go away so everyting can turn into the right direction. I just want to stop feel all this and just receive healing from Jesus and instead of repeating symtoms I want to say what is the Truth, what He’s done for me! I know what it says in Matt 18:19. “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as
    touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my
    Father which is in heaven.” and that is God’s word” Would you like to pray for my healing along with me?

      Hi Hope! We are continuing to pray for you!

      About the hair loss – that happened to me several times – each time it seemed to be somehow related to the thyroid. Once it seemed to be connected to a medicine which sent the thyroid so far off-kilter I thought I would die (Cymbalta). I’ve read a number of accounts from people claiming a link between EDS, fibro, and thyroid conditions, and also quite a few accounts of “freaky” things happening from medications (I had a list a mile long – ranging from the hair loss and MS-like symptoms to getting lost in familiar places to extreme, extreme paranoia… at times the “cure” was worse than the disease!).

      Father, I release heaven and all of the power of the Kingdom of God over Hope right now, and I release healing to every cell of her body! I command all pain to leave her body and every bodily system to normalize and come into alignment with Your image. In the mighty, awesome name of Jesus – Amen! So be it!

    Hi. I am 24 years old male, and I’m really in big trouble now. I am anxious of my future, worried about my health. I admit, I am bi-male and I have done things that is unworthy to be called His son. He called me many times, but I ignored him. Now, I realized the consequences of the things I have done in the past. It’s really scary. Now, I am worried about acquiring HIV infection. I don’t know if I am just paranoid or getting more conscious of my health. I think I am being punished. I am a sinner, I am an unworthy son. Right now, I finally saw the light that God showed me before. I’m willing to surrender everything for HIM. I am asking forgiveness to the Father for all the things I have done. I hope he will still give me another chance to prove my worth to be called HIS son. I pray for God’s mercy and grace to whatever is bothering me.I always cry every night because of this things in my mind.  I ask for His healing both physically and spiritually. I want to devote my life to HIM,.. Oh God, I ask for your healing, spare me from HIV infection, temptations, etc. I lift up everything to you, my worries, my fears, my sorrows, my pains. You are a merciful God. Please help me God. Give me one more chance.. 

    Psalm 23:4 I may walk through valleys as dark as death, but I won’t be afraid. you are with me, and your shepherd’s rod makes me feel safe.

    I keep praying and hoping for God’s promises, I am really worried,I am the breadwinner of my family. Dear Lord, I claim your healing,, for you have said, ” Believe and you will be healed.”give me and my family health of body and spirit Oh GOd..

      Hi there, “I need healing” … good to meet you!

      Your story really moved me… partly because it’s part of my own testimony (I was bisexual before I met Jesus, and also very promiscuous for a long season of my life; I lived in fear of HIV and other diseases… and partly because a lot of your fears are enforced by the Church but unfounded in Scripture.

      We’ve all sinned because it’s our nature to do so, and that sin separates us from Father… but when we come to Christ, we get two things in all of their fullness: we get a new nature (we could call it a new heart), and we get restored relationship with Father. FULLY restored.

      Remember, the first Adam – a man – sinned and gave away his sonship and all of the “rights” of that family relationship. And we say, “oh we are so unworthy, we’re scumbag sinners, worthless…” but that’s a lie, because Jesus came and died for us sinners. Value is determined by the price someone will pay for something. God Himself gave up everything for you… while you were still a sinner.

      Jesus – the second Adam – born and lived as a man – tempted in every way as a man – did what Adam did not do. In so doing – and dying – He recovered everything that Adam lost… and then He turned around and restored it to us.

      So, my friend, if you are in Christ, you are no longer a sinner. It’s not
      your nature any more! If you are continuing in sin, it’s probably because
      you’ve been sold a bill of goods that says you’re a sinner, saved by grace.
      Not true. You are a saint. You can choose to act accordingly. It is a
      process, and it takes practice – but the heart of God is restoration for
      you. FULL restoration.

      That is good news, isn’t it? :)

        Thank you Kay. I hope I am not too late to change the way I live. Everyday I read the word of GOd to ask for strength and courage to submit myself for a test. I am really afraid. I’m too young to die. My family depends on me. Jesus is my only hope..I’m just holding on to his words in Matthew 9:29 “Because of your faith, you will be healed”.  and Mark 9:23 “Anything is possible for someone who has faith”. Let your will be done in my life Father, not my will.. Sustain me with your strength Father, Heal my spirit and my body.. I want to be healed by Jesus and I believe in HiS power of healing.

          It’s never too late to change your life – surrender to Him! :)

    Hello Kay. Words cannot express the comfort and the hope your testimony gives me. I am nineteen years old this year, and about half a year ago I woke one one day in a debilitating condition. It came to me after a bad case of the flu. I feel as if my brain no longer functions correctly, I cannot concentrate, my memory is not what it used to be, I became anxious and depressed, and I often feel as if I am living in a dream, things around me are just hazy and don’t register with my mind. As a Christian who drifted away from God, this experience has led me back to Him. I am now convinced that this is all part of God’s plan, as I have taken a break from college to return to my parents house. I’ve now realized that my family needed me here, and that several of my friends also needed support back home. I have no doubt now that God saw all these things and used my illness to benefit those I love. Now I am waiting for Jesus to restore my health (sometimes a little impatiently), as He often promises in His Word. I now thank God for your miraculous healing, and am eagerly awaiting mine. Know that your experience has brought me hope and faith, and I’m sure to many other people as well. Please pray for me so that I may be patient, faithful, comforted, and will be able to return to college in the fall as a healthy young man again. Thank you so much! In Christ I send you my love.
