I am sending you my story of healing from migraines. Please feel free to use my testimony as you and God see fit. I felt it strong in my heart to share.
I started suffering from migraines and my sophomore year of college. I did not have them often but when I did, they were terrible. I would vomit and not be able to get out of bed for at least 24 hours. After I had my child who is now going to be 11, they increased exponentially. I literally had daily migraines. I took daily migraine medication. They continued getting worse and worse. I was taking 12 pills a day. Then when he would add rescue medications on top of it, I was taking between 14 and 16 pills every day. I was getting occipital nerve injections in the back of my head, and Botox injections as well. These Botox injections were 40 to 50 injections into my head and shoulders to help every three months. I had also been hospitalized for a migraine that lasted 17 days and had another one that lasted for 14. During this time, I could not function, I could not get out of bed. I would ask God to relieve me of this pain and take me to heaven.
Kent and his army of prayer warriors have been praying for me for many years. I want to tell you to never give up on God. He does things in his own timing and we may not understand it. I know I still don’t understand why I would suffer for eight years of daily migraines and being stuck in bed for most of it. But I want to tell you there is always hope with God and he hears us even when we feel like he doesn’t. Continue to do the best you can and I am trying to make meaning from it. I am much more compassionate now when people tell me they are in pain.
On Friday, January 12 at 8:10 AM 2018, I knew I would never have a migraine again. My friend Fay was with me and we were sitting in my car and had just arrived back and parked in the garage from an outing. I can’t tell you how I knew, it was just this overwhelming feeling of relief. I had just been relieved of a 17-day migraine and I knew in my heart and my mind that God had healed me.
I am now off of every medication that was to relieve a migraine. I no longer receive occipital nerve injections or Botox. It took a while to be able to come off of all of these medications safely, but with time and God I have been able to do it.
My message to anyone out there praying for a miracle is to never give up. Trust God. He hears you and is working in your life in ways you could never imagine.
I am a medical professional and I take care of extremely sick people every day. I believe in both medicine and God. However sometimes, God is the only one that can truly heal us.
I know it can be hard to trust when you are in pain or don’t understand what is going on, but he has an ultimate plan for your life. I believe that with all of my heart, soul, and mind.
