Healed of Fatigue, Fibromyalgia Syndromes & Immune Dysfunction
Holly R.

All Glory goes to God!

This is my testimony as to what God has done in my life regarding my health!

I battled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Immune Dysfunction (CFIDS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) for 5 1/2 years, slowly struggling to regain my health and energy level, starting from the point of being virtually bedridden for almost a year. There is no known cure for CFIDS/FMS; and I know of people who have been dealing with these conditions for over 20 years, some still unable to function in society. For over 20 years, I have had to take Sudafed due to nighttime sinus congestion. If I didn't take it, then I would wake up in the night feeling like I was suffocating.

Since Kevin and I were both born-again in Jesus Christ in March of 2002, I got a jumpstart on my health and it has been improving at a steady pace, and I have not had to see any doctors since then - which is pretty miraculous in itself. I was able to get off of all prescription medications in 2002. Then in December of 2003, while visiting with a group of spirit-filled born-again believers, I had hands laid on me and prayers said over me, and was anointed with oil, like it says to do in the Bible.

{James 5:14} Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

{Mark 16:17,18} And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

They believed that God had healed me, but I had a hard time believing since I had been sick for so long and still felt tiredness and other symptoms. If I had a broken leg and could suddenly walk, then I could easily believe it. Also, the devil had me convinced that my sickness was a burden that I had to bear for Christ. I had believed and accepted that having CFIDS/FMS was something that I would have to live with for the rest of my life. That was such a lie and a major hindrance to my healing. Jesus bore our sickness and diseases on the cross.

{I Peter 2:24} Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

So with hope, I observed my health and I noticed that I did not get a cold or the flu that winter. I also was able to withstand colder temperatures. I went off of all other supplements and was down to just one herbal supplement used specifically to boost my energy level (I did try to go off of this around March of 2004, unsuccessfully). I know that God can heal instantly, as well as over time; sometimes it is a trial of our faith He is putting us through (1Peter 1:6-7). In May of 2004, the Lord had pressed it upon my husband and I that we needed to enter a period of sanctification. After researching in the Bible, we decided to fast and pray for 7 days, closing ourselves off from the outside world. After fasting 5 days, I was extremely weak since I was not fully healed. I again was debating whether or not to go off the supplement, and that is when the Lord let me know that I was healed. I specifically got the words, "You ARE healed" in my head. The LORD was letting me know that I was already healed - past tense. I decided to step out in faith, drop the supplement, and trust that He would carry me, as there was no other way for me to continue on fasting without His help, and He did not let me down! I believe the fasting helped me to hear the LORD.

I believe the Lord has completely healed me. I have read of other testimonies of divine healings where the person just did not believe they were healed until they stepped out in faith AND acted on that faith, despite what they saw or heard or felt. (James 2:17) It's a daily thing to act in faith - God will test your faith frequently. I believe I could have been healed back in December had I just stepped out fully in faith. I was looking to physical signs of healing as proof, when I needed to just have faith that the healing was accomplished at the cross and all I needed to do was to receive the healing. The faith comes usually before the manifestation.

{Matthew 9:28-30} And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened;

I continue to enjoy my newly restored health. Praise God for his grace, mercy and compassion to heal me even with my little faith at that time. It only takes faith the size of a mustard seed! There have been many times that the devil would have me wonder if I was still sick, causing me to question or doubt my healing especially when I am weakened (by fatigue or other some other minor infirmity that may bring about symptoms similar to CFIDS/FMS), but I simply reject and refuse to believe that I was not healed by God and the doubt leaves my mind along with the symptoms. Again, there is usually a trial of our faith before total manifestation of healing; there may be more than one trial to see if we will waiver on what we have believed.

{1 Peter 5:8} Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

{James 4:7} Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

During this timeframe, I also had hands laid on me for my sinuses. They cleared up instantly, but later when I started to get some congestion, I went back to taking some Sudafed and got dependent on them again. Then one night, the Lord let me know that the Sudafed was causing some heart problems I have been having for many years - irregular heart beat, chest and shoulder pains, etc. I had not connected the two things myself. The next day I decided to research Sudafed on the Internet. I knew Ephedrine was not good, but I didn't know anything about Sudafed, which is epinephrine. I found out that it can cause rapid heart beats, etc., so I needed to get off of them. So, again I prayed about it and decided to step out in faith that the Lord would keep my sinuses clear without it. And I've been off of Sudafed since then and have not had any need for a daily decongestant. My heart problems are gone. All praise goes to God!

Both Kevin and I have had other healings and continue to have healings in our bodies as well as being touched in many other areas in our life by God. I hope that this testimony of God's healing power and the trials of our faith will bless you. I have abbreviated this so if you have any questions or comments, please let me know. I am thankful for my long-term illness since it brought me to God. All glory goes to God!
