January 1997 – The doctor recommended immediate surgery. Leaving the doctor’s office, I was pondering things before the LORD, as there were not any funds to pay the $3000 for the cost of the surgery that the insurance would not cover, nor was I positioned to take six weeks off work. The surgery would require someone to drive for six weeks and help at home. As I was living in a new city, I truly knew no one that would help me. Exceedingly discouraged and depressed I went to bed and my closing prayer was simply, “GOD help me!” Without fanfare, a healing team, anointing oil, the elders, any faith or hope – GOD in HIS mercy came. Immediately, the 8 to 12 pound mass of scar tissue disappeared. It was the size of a large grapefruit or small melon. Immediately the cysts disappeared. The hemorrhaging immediately discontinued. The pain stopped. The exploding cysts never returned. The migraines never occurred again! JESUS CAME!
A few months later I returned to my gynecologist for the annual checkup and C125 test (a blood test for ovarian cancer). While examining me he said, “I thought I was your doctor.” I answered, “You are, I haven’t seen anyone since I last saw you.” He asked, “Who did the surgery?” I laughed, “Oh that, GOD came last February in a moment in time it all changed.” He said, “Best surgery I have ever seen. I never argue with the BIG GUY!” He was very happy for me and then he said, “Well, it seems we can discontinue the C125 tests, don’t imagine you are going to be having any cancer.” Later the lab reports indicated that both the C125 and hormone levels were normal (and they have continued to be since then without any hormone replacement drugs.)
Nineteen years of monthly suffering ended in one moment in time. The Joy of Womanhood was taking on a completely new meaning. GOD is faithful! I knew that someone somewhere sometime had prayed for me and GOD had answered their prayers. GLORY TO HIM ALONE!
January 2001 – The LORD had proclaimed that my 50th year would be A YEAR of JUBILEE! HE had many surprises in HIS storehouse for me.
February 10, 2001 – While attending a healing meeting in Albany, Oregon and during a time of prayer I could see in the Spirit Realm a second wave of the Holy Spirit coming across the gathering from the right to the left. The Guest Minister announced a few seconds later that a second wave of the Holy Spirit was coming across the room and to lift your hands to the LORD if you wanted to be healed. So, I lifted my hands and said, “Surprise me!” (That is because there were so many choices). Immediately my lungs felt like they were bursting, and I COULD BREATHE! REALLY BREATHE! The LORD gave the minister a word of knowledge about a woman that GOD was doing something in her lungs and then he asked if she would please come forward. As I am not an on-stage, be in front of people, kind of person, I hesitated, then finally went forward so that he and his wife could pray for me.
On February 14, 1988 my 12-year old son had poured Clorox bleach (one and half gallons) into a shower stall that had been cleaned with comet cleanser forming a toxic gas. When I inhaled the toxic fumes, the lining was burned out of my lungs. Within a few minutes I was passed out on the bed because “I did not feel well.” Even though I died three times that night as my husband said that I turned perfectly gray and completely stopped breathing, he did not take me to the hospital. Of course, by the time I made it to the doctor the following afternoon, the damage was irreversible, and the prognosis was 3-4 years for the lining to grow back. The trouble being that it was impossible to intake the oxygen that I needed for the fullness of life. Immediately hiking, bike riding and running were alleviated from my life. After four years my lungs were x-rayed, and the lining had returned but I was only absorbing 50% of the oxygen that I was breathing. Oxygen deprivation creates a number of physical problems but for me the greatest hindrance was the physically induced depression from lack of oxygen. It had been 13 long years of not being able to take a deep breath. Thirteen years of daily overcoming depression, struggling each day to move forward, to get out of bed and to just make myself move.
When the song was released, “This Is the Air I Breathe!” it became “my song” in ways that most will never truly understand. At the time of this healing my lungs absorbed about 80% of the oxygen I breathe, and life has changed radically. The simple act of walking upstairs without being winded or walking the long corridors of airports without feeling like I was going to pass out or just being able to worship JESUS with flags and Glory Rings and my lungs not screaming at me in pain. It was a miracle that only GOD could perform! HE IS THE AIR I BREATHE!
February 17, 2001 – The LORD directed my steps to Albany, Oregon again for another healing meeting. There was a word of knowledge released about a woman in two car wrecks in the same week and there had been pain in the right hip since the wrecks. That would be me!
On June 13 and 15, 1994 the vehicle I was driving was rear-ended without warning. Both times I was stopped at traffic lights. The damage to my physical dwelling place was internal. No broken bones or lacerations. So, from outward appearances I looked just fine. From my neck to my waist my spine was jerked forward two inches. The right hip was jammed, twisted and turned with about 39 places of ruptured connective tissue. The curve in my neck was reversed. My right arm useless for four months. Due to the misdiagnosis and the wrong treatment the connective tissue damage was permanent. No chance for healing in the medical field. Diagnosis: walk with a limp for the rest of my life, four vertebrae in my back permanently damaged, always in pain. Connective tissue is like the nervous system – one place of damage affects whole system. To sit anywhere meant sitting on at least thirty-nine pieces of pea gravel (scar tissue) – the burning fire pain in my leg had continued for almost seven years. This caused me to view metal chairs much differently and the choice of cushioned chairs became essential to be able to sit more than ten minutes. Because the car wrecks were in 48 hours of each other, there was no settlement as each insurance company blamed the other wreck for the damages. After a year of over 200 medical, legal, chiropractic, neurological appointments…the medical expenses were not even fully covered.
JESUS came and gently took the scar tissue out of my hip, which caused the majority of the pain and walking with a limp. Because I had made a promise to GOD that I would worship HIM no matter what at the beginning of 1994, so far it meant always worshiping HIM in physical pain. Of course, when I made the commitment it was before most of the pain had begun and it was when I had no idea of where HE was taking me.
March 22, 2001 - My daughter, Angela, my grandson Elijah and I went to the evening Healing Meeting in Albany, Oregon. A prophetic word was released regarding Elijah, Elisha, Jezebel and King Jehu, which confirmed many things in my spirit. The guest minister had a word of knowledge about knees and witchcraft. I went forward for prayer as in our family we have a genetic curse or weakness regarding knees and I had not been able to kneel or crawl around on my knees for 30 years. Our family also has a history of some witchcraft, my grandmother's sister professed to be a witch. Perhaps the greatest blessing is that earlier in the day I was sharing with Angela how much I would like the LORD to heal my knees so that I could get down on the floor with Elijah. So, GOD was building her faith as HE was meeting me. Knees were something I could get along without until Elijah came into my life. Then knees became more essential for being able to play with my grandchildren.
After the prayer, my knees burned like a fire upon them for three days. They were bright red in color. On the third day the pain and red coloring departed. The kneecaps were still very weak and and a bit wobbly but the pain was gone and I was delighted for that miracle!
April 15, 2001 – Resurrection Sunday – From my Journal, “Jesus came into my room early in the morning….it shook me…..although I have seen HIM many times at PAPA GOD’s throne…..I can’t remember HIM coming to see me for years….since 1959 in the Oak Grove. HE did not speak…just held my face in HIS hands and looked into me. HE loves me so much. Third Day Resurrection Sunday (Song of Songs 2:9, John 14:20, Song of Solomon 2:8-9, Matthew 5:8, John 10:14-15).”
It was over a month later before I realized that when JESUS came into my bedroom while I was sleeping. HE touched my neck and throat area healing my thyroid. While in high school in the 1960’s my thyroid had been petrified from dental x-rays and I had taken thyroid medication for 17 years. Not anymore. Yes, the medical tests have revealed that my thyroid levels are “normal.” People always ask me about my energy level and I just laugh because any of you that know me know that HE has more than equipped me with huge amounts of energy! YES GOD!
July 8, 2001 - Jubilee Church in Camarillo, California. Notes from my Journal, “The Scripture on the Bulletin was Psalm 119:105. There is a shift. GOD is doing a new thing. Promise of GOD transforms us. HIS Presence provides the energy and atmosphere to bring forth HIS promise! Psalm 18 for me (visitation). Pastor Steve Dittmar had a word of knowledge for a right shoulder injury, a woman spraining her right shoulder, doctors thought it was rotator cusp, it has been misdiagnosed, then he held his shoulder in the exact place mine has hurt for 3.5 years, by the collar bone. Pastor Steve Dittmar’s prayer for me: Visitations from the LORD for 14 days beginning 7-08-01-Hear HIS voice….He will be releasing things to you and from you. You dance like David before GOD. Some will ridicule you….some will accept you….God will rebuke the assault of Michal’s against you. He said that the LORD was fitting me with HIS Righteous Breast Plate….that I would have many visitations from the LORD. I noticed that his watch had the word “tide” on it and that he began praying for me at 1:24.” January 4, 1998 - While at work in the Ochoco National Forest, I slipped on an icy covered deck and sprained my right shoulder twice. When I fell, I hit a closed door, someone opened the door from the other side, and I crashed and hit the cement floor. So my shoulder was jammed twice into my already damaged spine from the car wrecks in 1994. This was not a good day! The following day I went to the doctor and the next day I was terminated from my job. The workers compensation claim was not submitted by my employer, which required an appeal. I was granted eight weeks of chiropractic care as the orthopedist could find nothing requiring care. Three and half years of consistent burning pain in my right shoulder area, especially near my collar bone, led me to believe something different happened. X-rays are not perfect nor are the technicians reading the x-rays. The humanity factor is always present on the earth. Once again JESUS came when no one else could or would! And the year of JUBILEE continues!
September 7, 2001 - While at a friend’s house, she asked if she can pray for my knees. Although the pain has been gone since February my knees still sound like rocks in a glass jar. In her prayer she asked the LORD for “two pearly white knee -caps” and she waited until she could see them in the Spirit Realm and then put them on my knees. GOD was completing the healing HE had begun in February. HE IS LIKE THAT! FAITHFUL AND TRUE! The Year of JUBILEE held many other miracles and surprises according to HIS GLORY and RICHES in CHRIST JESUS!
As we began 2002 and the LORD released us to hold HIS GLORY REIGNS Gatherings weekly, the following is one of the messages the Holy Spirit gave me to share. Trusting HE will continue to bless, encourage and heal you!
18 Years Later: My hormones are still normal, I have never taken hormone replacement. My thyroid is still normal. My shoulder has hauled 50-70 pound suitcases around the earth. I still pretty much walk without a limp. I have never had any form of cancer. God has been faithful to sustain, strengthen, heal and align me as HE sends me forth for HIS Glory and Purposes. HE IS BEYOND FAITHFUL!
