12/13/11 — "So, I thought He gave me MS to teach me something…"
Andrew, I just wanted to write and say how much I’m truly grateful for your ministry. In the summer of 2008, after a brain MRI, I was told I had lesions, which meant multiple sclerosis (MS). At that time, I never knew that God wanted me well. I grew up in church, but the teachings were that He gives us sickness and financial crisis when we are in sin. So, I thought He gave me MS to teach me something. I was happily married with two young kids. I kept thinking that I had no real sin in my life. What did I do to bring this on?
Somehow, and I don’t even remember how, I received one of your teaching CDs, and after that, I spent all my time in my closet listening to your teachings and reading the Word. I would read your guestbook along with every one of the healing journeys and be encouraged of all the testimonies. I was a very dry sponge slowly soaking up all the Word that was given. I told no one other than my husband and a few members of my family what I was dealing with. I never pursued any medical treatment either. I didn’t want to talk sick, and I didn’t want anyone to know. I didn’t want people to ask me about it or judge me.
To make a long story short, I was a very slow learner, but I continued about my regular day of taking care of my kids and work, even when the symptoms were screaming at me. I continued listening to you in the car, in my office, or wherever. I called your Helpline for prayer so many times—thank you from the bottom of my heart to each of them. I started to see the symptoms fade very slowly. As I continued getting the Word in my heart, letting it work, and learning of my authority, the symptoms became less and less to nonexistent. I confessed constantly over my body that my brain and mylein sheaths are strong and healthy, that every organ functions properly. There are NO lesions because of Jesus. When the symptoms would flare, I would immediately take authority, command them to go, and/or meditate on a healing scripture.
At the same time I was told I had MS, we were also facing a financial mess due to a business I was starting, so I have also been studying on your financial teachings also. I learned that for years, we gave our tithes and offerings all wrong. Very recently, we have seen a shift in our finances as well. I now know God wants me and my family healthy, well, and blessed to be a blessing. I’m so honored to be a giver to your ministry. If it wasn’t for your online resources and teachings, I would not have been able to resist the devil and see him flee from me. I’m so grateful for what you and your staff are doing. God bless!
