Six Years Of Celebrating
Six years. It has been six years since Joel woke up at 4 am, sat up in bed and said, "I am healed." A miracle had manifest itself in every part of his body. He was healed of Lyme Disease, and the co-infections Bartonella and Babesia. He was healed of Sleep Apnea, Thyroid Disease, Recurrent Corneal Erosion, Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gluten Intolerance, and something our doctor called Pre-Parkinson's. God did a complete overhaul of Joel's body. And the confirmation of his healing was something he never expected.....he spoke in tongues.
Joel went to bed on January 23rd and prayed in a way he never had before. He spoke to the sicknesses, commanding them to be gone. He addressed the Lyme and co-infections and told them that they had no authority to be in his body, they needed to die and leave his body immediately. Then he lay down and went to sleep. He woke at 4 am healed.
After being on disability for 3 years, spending 9 hours a night sleeping and and 4 hrs a day napping, unable to physically exert himself nor work full time, he was able to work, go back to regular sleeping hours, walk an hour at a time, and ride his bike again. It was an amazing over the top miracle that could have only come through God.
He went to his eye doctor and was told that what a doctor had called his "80" year old eyes (from an eye disease) were now the eyes of a "50 year old"! Our Lyme doctor tested and examined him and could find nothing of Lyme or other diseases and conditions left in his body. Even the arthritis bumps on his joints were all gone. He was healed.
He has told his testimony as often as he feels led to do so. Why? Because only God could do this. It was His miracle and we need to give him the glory. Because Joel (and I) believes that God wants us all well and he is one example of what God does. We celebrate every year, the reminder of God's goodness for His children. It is a reminder to us of the healing we have seen in Joel and myself and it brings hope for the healing that is to come.
The past six years have been quite a journey for us with healing and Holy Spirit. We are so grateful.
