From Despair to Deliverance: A Testimony of My Healing!

“My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart.  For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.” – Proverbs 4:20-22

Have you ever experienced feelings of depression and confusion so intense that life seemed unbearable?   Six years ago, I felt this way. But today, I stand here healthy and whole because God was my hope and deliverer. 

Struggles During Pregnancy

When I was 15 weeks pregnant, I was dilated 2cm, and the doctor put me on bed rest.  Soon after, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.  It’s difficult to describe my condition because I had never experienced anything like it before. My mind felt like it was spiraling out of control.  My heart raced  constantly, I couldn’t focus or sleep, and my body shook.   It was too much to handle.“When life felt unbearable, prayer became my lifeline to divine healing.”   To cope, I would drive around the neighborhood at 2am  to pray, otherwise, I might have harmed myself.  I did this every night for about 3 months.  I even said, “God if you’re not going to heal me, then just kill me.”  I thought dying was the only way to find  relief.  

Facing Medical Challenges

 On top of this, I vomited multiple times a day  and ended up in the hospital 3 times.  The doctor had to give me a shot to prevent early labor at 15 weeks, hoping to keep the baby longer.  The plan was to deliver at 21 weeks, but the chances of survival were slim. Despite this, I believed in God power’s and refused to let fear take hold. I prayed fervently for a full-term pregnancy because I believe in a God of miracles.

The Miracle Unfolds 

Finally,  my miracle arrived!  My daughter was born at 37 weeks.  After her birth, I continued to battle thyroid issues.  I prayed even more for healing and initially refused  the medication  prescribed by my doctor. When I told my doctor that God would heal me, she was upset and insisted that healing would come through the medication. Reluctantly, I took the medication, but it made me vomit, so I stopped. I believed that God had already healed me and that the medication was causing my body to react.

 When I returned to the doctor for a blood test, it came back clear. To be sure, I went back two more times, and each test confirmed that I was healed.

A Message of Hope 

Why  am I sharing this with you?  I understand how depression and anxiety can be.  It can make you feel like you’re about to jump out of your skin and that you can’t go on. In moments of deepest despair, remember that God’s love and healing are within reach. There is a way out. It is through prayer! God is the God of hope.  He is more capable than you think!  

If you are struggling, know that God sees you. He knows your pain and is ready to bring healing and deliverance. My story is proof that with God, all things are possible – even the imposible. Trust in Him, pray, and hold on to His promises. You are not alone, and there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.
