It all begun one fine morning in April 2000. I went to the bathroom to have a wash and noticed to my horror that there was some spotting in my underwear, (breakthrough bleeding) as they call it in medical terms. I was quite alarmed as I had never experienced anything of that nature and it was nowhere near my next period date. Overcome with concern, I told my husband who cajoled me into thinking it was nothing.
All day long, I thought about this and took it to the Lord in prayer. I consulted a family friend whose husband is a Gynaecologist to discuss this issue when the doctor was free. Word came to me that it was nothing to be alarmed about. However, still deep down in my heart, I knew something just wasn’t right. Day after day I checked it out and it was the same old issue; and every morning I prayed to the Lord "Lord, I know you are the only one who knows the cause of this and the only one who can heal me. Thank you for healing me, in Jesus' Name AMEN".
I booked an appointment to see my Doctor who looked puzzled and started a guessing game it could be this or that, she went on , (if you know what I mean). Through all this I prayed to my Lord who is the only Healer I know and trust. In her dilemma she instructed me to come back for a smear test and swab when the spotting had ceased. I did so and the swab results came back all clear. I had to wait for the smear test results.
In May 2000 around the same time,it started in April, the spotting begun again. My faith and trust was in God and God alone, as I waited for the smear test results. That month in particular my period was extremely heavy with unusual big clots, but I sensed that the Great Healer was at work delivering me from infirmity.
One evening I had this strong urge to scan through a Medical Encyclopaedia I have, to find out the root cause of this spotting. I found out that it could be symptoms of Cancer of the Uterus. Alarmed, I stood on the Word of God and believed that I had already been healed by the stripes of Christ!
The Holy Spirit led me to take a week off work to attend a conference organised by Creflo Dollar Ministries who were visiting London where I reside. I diligently attended the meetings morning, day and night. On the third day (Friday) of the conference programme, in the afternoon at around 2.30pm, just as we had settled down for the afternoon teaching by Taffi Dollar, she paused after declaring that "God will exceed your exceptions in life", and said that the Holy Spirit had laid on her heart that, He wanted to heal someone in the audience. She said that if anyone could relate their situation to that of the woman with the issue of blood in the Bible, they should come forward and receive their healing.
I was overwhelmed, the whole auditorium was silent, I said, "God, you want to heal in the midst of thousands of people". I boldly got up and went to the front, and as I walked down I heard a round of applause. You bet it took some boldness to get up and go, but hey, when the Lord is passing by you don't want to miss the opportunity of touching the hem of his garment.
When I got to the front, Pastor Taffi asked me to pray in the Spirit. Suddenly, I heard a thundering noise, ladies of all ages, rushing forward to receive their healing. I wasn't alone. I thank God for deliverance.
I called my husband to tell him what had happened and he was stunned, but full of praises for the Lord. When I got home that day there was a Personal letter awaiting me, and when I opened it, it was the smear test results, stating that the results were abnormal and that they had to carry out the test again in 3 months. They suspected Inflammation of the Uterus. I cried out "Lord, you want to give me a testimony in black and white". I praised the Lord for His wondrous work.
The next day as I began to share my testimony, I felt a sharp pain in my stomach, but I carried on giving praise to the Lord and sharing it with anyone who would listen.
I decided to go and give the Lord a praise offering at Church the following Sunday and I did just that, dancing and singing in the presence of God. Just before my Pastor begun his sermon, he received a Word of Knowledge from the Holy Spirit and said "The Lord wants to heal a lady here between the age of 30-50 whom the enemy had plan to inflict with Cancer of the Uterus, and to know that it is you, for the past few months you have been bleeding between periods and you know it is not normal and you have been concerned".
Now, I was stunned, this is a confirmation of the healing that took place on Friday. The God we serve is an Awesome God who never fails. Indeed he brings the counsel of the enemy to nought and his devices to no effect. I AM HEALED AS I WRITE IN JESUS' NAME!
Assist me in praising the Almighty God and remember that His words never return to Him void. He says "....What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do". (Isaiah 46:11). PRAISE THE LORD!
