MY NEW WALK
Early one morning, I got up to go to the bathroom. When I went back to bed, I glanced at the clock and saw that it was 2:30 am. I was lying there just thinking when that indescribable voice told me to watch The Chronicles of Narnia. I was in such a state of shock; I could not believe that this was really happening to me. I asked the voice if it was God and, He said, “Yes.” I replied that I thought those movies were dark and too extreme. God said, “No.”
I tried to reason away having heard God’s voice again. Had I just dreamed it? Am I’m going crazy? I did not know what to believe. I even woke my husband up to tell him, to make sure I was not dreaming. But I knew that there was no mistaking God’s voice. I borrowed the movie from Katie and watched it. Although my husband really could not get into it and, could not understand its significance at the time, it made perfect sense to me. I was able to see that its main lessons were that, no matter how many problems we may face or how difficult our issues are. ONLY God can fix them and He is the one and only we should turn to. And, that our faith must be unquestioning, like that of a child.
I have been cured of the thyroid disease hypothyroidism, which I have had since I was about thirteen years old and is generally not curable. I was on a high dosage of Synthriod, a prescription synthetic hormone that I was told that I would have to take my entire life. My own thyroid did not produce enough for my body to function properly. If I missed a dose I became very tired, and extremely irritable. It constantly created situations where my husband and children suffered because I was very unpleasant to be around.
After having been without my medication for over a month, due to medical appointment issues, I decided to turn to Jesus for help. I prayed to Jesus to touch me and cure my affliction. I believed without any doubt whatsoever that he would make me well. It is not something that I sensed; I knew it with absolute certainty. I said out loud, by his stripes and, precious blood, I am healed. I had even called my grandmother and told her that I was healed. I did not experience any physical difference, but simply believed that I was cured and went to the doctor that afternoon for verification.
I explained to the doctor what had happened and that I was not there to get more medication but only wanted confirmation that I was healed. She agreed to do the blood work and told me that it would take several days to receive the results. For about 24 hours the devil would try to lie to me, through thought, taunting me and telling me that I did not really think that I had been cured. I responded by telling the Evil One that Jesus says that I am
healed. The next afternoon, I received a call from the doctor and she told me that everything was normal and that I did not need medication any longer. As I was coming home, I looked toward the sky and thanked the Lord for healing me.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, said the LORD.
Later that day, while walking my dogs, I looked up in the sky again and noticed a huge cloud and outside of it there was an image of the faces of two men. The image was not in the form of the cloud, but something apart from it. The men’s faces’ had the likeness of the way I would imagine God and Jesus to appear. God had a big crown and Jesus also had a crown that, toward the bottom, appeared to be a crown of thorns, but without the thorns. I gazed at them for about a minute and then turned away for a period of time that could have been no more than a second and the image and cloud were both gone. The next day I finished watching the second Chronicles of Narnia. At the end of that movie the image of God that comes out of the water was the exact image I had seen the previous day; only without the crown.
Here is another experience that I would like to share: When I went to get my blood work done to verify that my thyroid was healed, I felt myself being lead to ask a young couple if they knew Jesus. The first time I was directed to them, I ignored them, not knowing who I was going to ask,
I walked around a moment. I asked Jesus to help me.
I said, I am nervous and do not know who to talk to. I walked by the same couple again and was lead to go back and ask them. I said to myself and God, ok this must mean you want me to talk with this couple. I didn’t know what I was going to say. I was really nervous, going and asking someone random about Jesus.
However, I followed the lead that was pushing to ask. This woman very rudely stated no. I was kind of in shock and didn’t really know what to say.
I then was puzzled and asked again, if they knew who Jesus was. The woman again said rudely no, no, no. I then had feeling to walk away.
I then stated to the man that was with her Jesus died for our sins and that I appreciated his service. About 30 minutes after that, an earthquake hit Virginia that was felt where I live, in Georgia.
I am still to this day being taught many lessons; Every once in a while God, wakes me for a Bible lesson and leads me to the book that he wants me to read from.
