I was raised in the church and had accepted Jesus as my lord and savior as a child. I was filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues when I was 19 years old. God has always been very real to me, so I had no excuse why I chose to make such bad decisions. But God is gracious and merciful. More than anyone can fathom.
My story begins in 2016. I was 23 years old and had a job working at a nightclub. I wasn’t living how I knew I should have been. I wasn’t living my life for Jesus. I started sleeping with my coworker. I knew it was wrong but I was letting my flesh take control and just being disobedient. A while after we had been sleeping together, I noticed something strange happening to my vagina. It was a terrible pain, and I knew something wasn’t right. I told the man I was sleeping with what I was experiencing and he just shrugged it off and said it might have been a UTI. But I knew that wasn’t the case. I knew it was something far worse than a UTI. Actually, I remember the night I contracted the disease because I felt the holy spirit tugging at my heart trying to get me to stop what I was doing. but I didn’t listen.
We went to the doctor together and by this time I knew what I was experiencing were symptoms of my first herpes outbreak. It was the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life. The doctor examined me and told me that it looked like herpes indeed. They tested my urine that day which came back positive for Chlamydia. Right at that moment, I felt fear start growing inside of me. I immediately started praying in the spirit and rejecting the idea that I would have to live with this disease for the rest of my life. I had my blood drawn so I could be tested for herpes. All while my blood was being drawn I was praying in other tongues under my breath. The Holy Spirit was giving me flashes of images of my blood being cleansed and visions of my body being healed. The doctor gave me a prescription for an antibiotic for the Chlamydia and I went and had it filled.
I told the man I was seeing what the doctor said, and he acted like he was surprised, but I could tell he was faking. He knew he had it the whole time and didn’t tell me. I was so upset, I burst into tears. I couldn’t believe what was happening to me. I went home after filling the prescription. I was about to take the medicine when I looked at the bottle and thought:
“My God is a Healer, I don’t need this medicine! Jesus is my medicine!”
I pulled out my bible, got down on my knees, and started reading all the verses where Jesus healed people. I read about the lepers who were healed, and the woman with the issue of blood. I read about the blind men and the men who were possessed by a legion of demons. I also read Isaiah 53:5 and repeated it to myself out loud. I prayed harder than I have ever prayed. I did this every day for about a week while I waited for my test results to come back. The symptoms started clearing up and one day I felt the healing deposit in my spirit and I knew that I was healed! I praised the Lord and thanked him for his mercy.
I went to church that Sunday and we just so happened to have a guest speaker who is on fire for the Lord and walks in Christ’s Authority. The power was falling in the service and many people were being healed of various ailments. I stood up and walked to the altar and asked the man of God to pray for me. He said yes, and touched my head and I felt a HEAT go straight down my back! It was like electricity! Or like hot oil! I knew that my body was healed before I went into the service that day, but it was at that moment that I felt the manifestation of God’s healing power. It was amazing!
The next day a letter came in the mail from the doctor. It was my test results! I opened it up and sure enough, I was NEGATIVE. If you are going through something similar, I want you to know that with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Don’t listen to what anyone says if it does not line up with what the bible says concerning your healing. The devil will try to make you doubt and try to make you afraid, but you have to disregard those thoughts and reject those imaginations of going through your life diseased. You have to fight to not let depression get the best of you and stand on the word! The word is healing medicine! Take it every day! I wanted to post my testimony here because this site helped encourage me during that time.
I hope this reaches someone, God Bless. Jesus Loves you!
