I plan for this to be the last of the posts regarding times the Lord healed me in a divine kind of way with no help from medical field – medicine or doctors. As I’ve stated previously Put Me In Remembrance was written about 2000. There were other healings but none that I have written in detail. Some of the ones listed below need additional explanation, so what is written in blue are notes added tonight (8-8-19).
Another excerpt from “Put Me In Remembrance.”
Other times I never want to forget, for which I thank you (God) again. Do you remember?
The infected bladder at mother’s when she was so sick. I was determined not to worry her. And, God, you did it! Thank you.
That bladder problem has been a recurring one, but you have taken care of it each time. Long ago, I went to the doctor about that. Back about my twenties or so. Before my “call” to trust you for my healing. This problem has not been back for many years. I guess it was the problem when I was so sick at my mother’s as mentioned above. She passed in 1994, so that’s been a long time.
The time on the highway when my eyes went kuerpluey. I got off the road and went into the credit union to sit and decide what to do. I sat in there until you rescued me. Thanks. There were other recurring incidents of that but not nearly so bad, or so scary. It has been quite a long time now since that happened. I don’t know what that was. It happened when I was in the hospital. I think in Denver, 2013. I told the doctor. They did an CAT; anyway nothing showed up. It was troublesome to me, quite scary. I don’t really know how to explain, but things would look all cracked up so I couldn’t focus pin point vision. If I was driving, I would pull off the road and try to get in a populated area in case I had a stroke or something. Still happens occasionally but much less severe. I’m still trusting the Lord for that situation.
Remember the back ache one Saturday. It was so painful until the next morning when I got ready for Sunday School. You healed it and I carried on my Sunday morning duties.
And do you remember the fear I had about the bump on my tongue when the dentist told me to have it checked. (to have a biopsy – scared the liver out of me) The amazing peace you gave to me. (I wrote that up somewhere. I need to find it and add it to this paper.)
One night I thought I had heart attack. It sure hurt. Thanks for the touch. I have a note in my Bible regarding this incident. I opened my Bible to Psalms 18:4-6. “The cords of death entangled me; The torments of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me. The snare of death confronted me. In my distress I cried to the Lord. I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice. My cry came before into his ears.” I have marked in the margin: June 18, 1999 2:15 am. I am amazed that I opened to that scripture at that time. I had never even noticed the scripture before that!
Remember a time when church started, I went to the front and asked Bob to pray for me. I had a headache and I realized I didn’t need to sit there until he asked if anyone needed prayer. And you took it away immediately. Amazing.
One of your first healings to me was the healing of the rash on my hand. I put the need on a prayer card for the women to pray for me. I wasn’t even at the service, but my hand healed up.
The strange pain centered in my back and chest. You took care of that at church one Wednesday evening as I stood in the aisle. Someone named Teresa prayed for me. That has been troubling me more this week, but I know what you did.* (See more below about this.)
*As more time has gone by, this needs more record. This pain came back.
December, 97. One day I went to the church for prayer by some of the staff
people who were there. I got some relief but at church the next night, it became
so bad! could not remain in the service. I headed toward the restroom where I
could hurt in private, and met Bro. W. in the hall. I knew that was more than
coincidence. He was one of only. about ‘five people among that thousand or so
who were there that night who knew about my problem. He prayed for me again.
I went in the restroom and cried for a bit, then got relief. Only a trace of pain the
rest of the night. Then it was over. When I was at Karen’s in February this pain
came with vengeance. After a couple days, her pastor and his wife came and
prayed. That night there was slight pain. Then it was gone. I drove home the next day without pain. (About 350 miles) It came back this week. Again, I affirmed that you are taking care. I slept with my hand on your words in Ex. 15:26 “I am the Lord who healeth thee.” A day later I was in the car only about three or four minutes and some woman read that scripture on the radio. What timing! You astound me, Lord. It has been a long time since this pain. I never did know what it was. Maybe kidney infection or stones.
About 2006 or 2007 I had another issue with passing blood. It was a hard time for me. Too much detail to remember at this time, but it was an amazing thing the Lord did at that time. There was another issue regarding a “bump” that I feared was cancer. I have details on that somewhere but I’ll hold it – for now anyway. These issues were after Put Me in Remembrance was written, so they are not included.
Dear Readers, I hope I haven’t been excessive with these posts regarding my Lord as Healer in my life over the 55 years or so when I did not go to a doctor. But the rest of my story will not be significant to what I have learned if you do not understand the amazing walk in physical healing that I experienced. How did I finally come to the place where I had to say, “Even so, Lord, not my will but Thine be done?” And why do I run to the doctor at the drop of a hat now?
Oh but to have a tiny sliver of your faith my friend—thank you for helping to keep me focused on the one true Healer!!!
It really was a precious time. But I tumbled. Stick with me, as I struggled and as I gained peace again. I’m at peace with the doctor situation now, but it is nothing like my private and secret issues I had then – just Jesus and me. I’ve learned a lot, but I’ve lost a lot. It was certainly “down a road less traveled.”
I’ve learned that there are physical trials that can be devastating to simply aggravating…that we journey through for reasons—reasons for us or reasons for those around us…we simply don’t and may never know as to the reasons why.
But to have the faith to turn to Jesus first before a doctor and wait for Him is powerful—some would say foolish but knowing you, I say it is wise beyond human understanding…
Thank you. You are a jewel. 😀
I have been known as “jules” for quite sometime 😉
