Health, healing, and wholeness – I find it strange how different Christians react to these words. For some these words cause a positive reaction to others negative, but whatever our stance we can not argue the fact that the Bible speaks about health, healing and wholeness. But what is healing and where does it come from?
I know that there are still many people who visit this blog searching to understand why they suffer from Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome a neurological immune disorder where the immune system attacks the nervous system causing pain, cramping and spasming in the muscles surrounding the peripheral nerves. It’s a horrible illness, but as I sat and looked over the stats for the last few days and saw that there didn’t seem to be a day when someone didn’t end up on my blog because of this disorder I realised something that I AM getting better! This is what sparked off this post, I wanted to share my experiences of what I feel is healing me. Continue reading Where does healing come from?
I know it’s been a while since I have properly been here but today I just wanted to come over and share this testimony with you all, the first three paragraphs are a short background and after that is the testimony.
You know that things have been tough for me both health wise and financially, I fell ill in 2008 due to excessive stress and work and left my job in 2009 partially as a consequence of this but would have probably stayed on if God had not asked me to leave. I have worked sparadocially since then knowing that it is not God’s will for me ‘to work’ in the same field/role that I had been in. In 2010 my hubby and I had our traditional wedding, a small intimate affair in my dad’s house and in the same year we lost our own home. We moved ‘temporarily’ into his mother’s house as she was away for 6 months, when she returned hubby remained and I moved in with my dad. This was the case until January this year.
In around February/March hubby began to experience strange symptoms (I won’t go into the details) but we were worried, he was on antibiotics for a bit, went to A & E and even was referred to a specialist. Slowly, hubby began to hear God asking him to “come out of her” ie. the slave system of the work he had been doing. He was working so many hours, trying to be a man of excellence and integrity but the more he gave never seemed to be enough, in fact his co-workers became jealous of his success and started to plot against him. After taking nearly a month off due to illness, he finally accepted that God wanted him to leave his place of employ and start his own company. So he did.
My husabnd’s last pay package came in, we used it to set up the company and live. We felt so sure that the business would be successful from start as many of his previous clients on hearing that he had left asked him to contact them, but every door we had previously thought would lead us to a fertile plane had a no entry sign on. It seemed that financially we were in a tight spot, we only had £30 left to go on food and electricity. We had two choices in front of us:
- Try and do something to bring in money e.g. work, beg or borrow.
- Trust in God in what He was teaching us and showing and see whether He really is El Shaddai
We decided to do the latter.
The testimony Continue reading Sharing my testimony of God’s goodness to me
