TESTIMONIES

Timberlee's Testimony of Healing:

Ok this is a bit long, ok, it’s really long, but stick with me! I am so thankful and excited to share with you all that the Lord has HEALED ME COMPLETELY!!! WOOO HOOO!!! Thank you Jesus!!! Yay God!!!

Here’s part of the story of how he did it:

You all know I’ve been setting my timer and laughing and thanking the Lord for healing me. Well....

Saturday my family and I went to the healing rooms and I was prayed over. I didn’t feel any different but I kept standing and believing in faith that God was healing me - entirely.

One of the ladies that was praying for me felt like shame needed to be broken but that didn’t really resonate with me at first. I asked Holy Spirit to show me where there was shame and the only thing that came to mind was that I felt bad for asking so many people to pray for me for so long and for so many health issues. In obedience to Holy Spirit and in agreement we broke off any and all shame.

When we left I was in just as much pain as when we got there but I knew God was working on and in my body. I just knew it.

(Side note: my husband was totally and miraculously healed on Saturday when the Lord touched him!)

Anyway, Sunday after church I wasn’t planning on getting more prayer for healing but a dear spiritual Dad said he wanted to press in and pray for my complete healing. So he and a couple of others gathered around and laid hands on me and began to pray.

It seemed like we were praying for a long time and seemed like nothing was changing, I heard and felt a pop in my back but the pain was still there and it wasn’t getting better. I kept believing that God was working a miracle even though I didn’t feel it or see it. I told those praying for me that although I believe God was healing me, I struggled with wondering why my pain didn’t go away and that caused me to question if I really had enough faith. I noticed that pain in one of my fingers had gone away and I could make a complete fist, which I couldn’t do before.

As we continued praying all of a sudden it felt like the Lord landed on me, I don’t know how else to explain it except that I could feel his presence touch the top of my head and then it felt like a surge throughout my entire body, not missing a single cell, all the way down to me feet!

The joy of the Lord fell on me and I started laughing. As I was laughing and thanking him there was one spot in my back that was still in a lot of pain, but more joy kept coming and I started to fall over as I was overcome with joy and thanksgiving in his presence. As I was falling (I’m sure it looked like I was doing the limbo) the pain left! I knew he had done it!

EVERY. SINGLE. ILLNESS. GONE!! 100%! ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO JEHOVAH RAPHA, OUR GOD WHO HEALS!

No morefibromyalgia, no more degenerative joint disease, no more torticollis, no more migraines, no more lupus, no more crohns, no rheumatoid arthritis, no colon cancer, no more liver scarring, no thoracicoutlet syndrome, no more herniated disks, no more COPD, no more plantar fasciitis!

Later that afternoon the Lord showed me that breaking shame off the day before set me up to receive complete healing. Because although I didn’t realize it, I carried shame because I hadn’t been healed for all these years and it was hindering me from receiving my healing. So breaking off shame in obedience the day before set me up to receive all that he promised to do in healing my body.

Another cool piece to this testimony is that as one of the gentlemen was praying in tongues over me another lady (not even praying or involved in what was going on) heard him in English! She came up and asked for prayer because he had just named (in tongues that she heard in English) a condition that she has suffered from for a long time that I also had! So I got to lay hands on her and pray for healing for her!! It was super amazing to see God work a miracle not only in me but in her as well!!

I slept soooo good last night! Better than I have in years!! And I woke up for the first time in a really long time actually feeling refreshed and ready for the day and I had energy!! My team of doctors have been doing my bloodwork every 6 weeks and I go back for labs on December 9th. I can’t wait for the proof that GOD HEALED ME!!

He healed my voice too!! Girls I just had a fiber optic transnasal endoscopy/laryngoscopy last week that showed damage and inflammation on my vocal cords. My voice had been hoarse and different than normal for almost a year and I was just told I needed therapy for it. NOT ANY MORE!! Thank you Jesus!!

All of this was a flat out attack from the enemy to keep me silent!! I am a super talkative person and I became so quiet because it simply took too much out of me to talk!! And I have a story to tell of God’s faithfulness and goodness!! I have lived in a domestic violence shelter, been a single teen mama, been through the pain of divorce, experienced the emotional pain of abortion (and been healed and set free, thank you Jesus), and lived with chronic pain for 10 years. Through all of that God has had his hand on me and never left me alone!! Well, I’m not just laughing at how the enemy’s plan backfired-I’m belly laughing!! I’m cracking up!! I’m roaring!!

All day long my girls and I have been dancing around the house singing and worshipping and thanking Jesus! This song is playing over and over-I don’t believe we have to "beg" for his blessings though so I change the words to thank him for blessings! And I also say I want MORE joy of the Lord to come down!!

Thank you all so much for your encouragement and for standing with me and contending with me in faith and for praying (and laughing) for my healing! I truly believe that being part of this community, this family of awesome mamas was and is an integral part of how the Lord chose to heal me. Because of all the pain and sickness I had been experiencing over the last 10 years I fell into a deep depression. I began to feel hopeless. You were such an encouragement to my heart, you brought emotional healing to places I didn’t even know I needed it. I am eternally thankful for you all and I love you all!!

Yay Jesus!! Thank you for your extravagant love for us!!

"A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect —life in its fullness until you overflow!" John 10:10 TPT

"With my whole heart, with my whole life, and with my innermost being, I bow in wonder and love before you, the holy God! Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration. How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness you’ve done for me? You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done. You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease. I will bless and praise the Lord with my whole heart! Let all his works throughout the earth, wherever his dominion stretches, let everything bless the Lord!" Psalms 103:1-3, 22 TPT
