That day the Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, and Ehrlichia died. How do we know? For the next three weeks while the bacteria died and left poisons behind, I was in horrible pain. If you know anything about Lyme, you know that die off is worse than the daily living......It is called "herxing". Two months later my two doctors confirmed that the Lyme was gone. Praise Jesus.
Are all my symptoms gone? Not yet. My full healing has been a process. More crockpot style than microwave, like Joels. But the crockpot healing has also released me from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and allergies, thyroid disease. Bringing my chronically ill body back to full health has taken me through a season of inner healing too. A journey guided by Holy Spirit. Seeking healing has brought me into a closer relationship with God and Jesus, and amazing life-changing encounters with Holy Spirit. All ordained by my Papa God. The One who delights in me. In you.
Thinking back on the many years of horrific pain and sickness that are behind me, brings me to my knees in gratefulness for where I am today. What we have learned about healing and Holy Spirit has taken us out of our comfort zone and into a life God has ordained. We can never go back to our old way of living or thinking. We have experienced the "something more" that Catherine Marshall talked about in her book of the same title I read over 40 years ago. It has wrecked us. And we love it.
So, today we celebrate the day I was healed from Lyme and it's nasty friends. Today we celebrate the day the enemy lost a big, long battle in my body. And we celebrate the freedom that has come with Jesus. We celebrate the victories yet to come. We give praise to the One who holds our every moment!
