Kathy – Healed of Lymphoma

I was initially diagnosed with lymphoma, a blood cancer, in March of 2003.  At that time I was a devout Catholic and did not know all of God’s truths.  I did not know that it is God’s will to heal.  I did not know that God does not bring sickness.  I did not know that healing is for everyone and that it is for today.  Because of not knowing God’s promises and truths I went through that experience with a lot of fear and anxiety.  But I had enough faith in God to make it through three relapses in an eighteen month period.   In August of 2004 after relapsing a little over one hundred days after a bone marrow transplant, the doctor told me to get my affairs in order because I only had weeks to months to live.  Even though I did not know what I know today, I had enough faith and hope to say that with the grace of God I would prove that doctor wrong.  I praise and glorify God because I was blessed with a remission for six years after that doctors words.

In February and March of 2013 I was coming up on the ten year anniversary of that first diagnosis.  Still not knowing what I know today I started to speak fear about relapsing.  Be careful because our words have power.  In July of 2013 I was re-diagnosed with the exact same lymphoma.  The first thing I said was, “God what lesson did I not learn the first time that you gave me this cancer again?”  I did not know His truths at that time and was believing so many lies of the enemy. The Word says My people shall perish for lack of knowledge.

However, that second healing journey was the beginning of a total new way of life for me and a totally new walk with Christ.  A friend of mine told me about these Healing Classes at Pastor Tim’s which I started attending at the end of August.  That is where I met Cindy and she told me about her healing classes, and I started attending her healing classes also.  I started to learn the truths and promises that are in the Bible.  I learned that it is God’s will to heal, that He does not cause sickness or give us sickness to teach us a lesson, and that healing is for today and for everyone.  I was like a sponge and started learning as much as I could about God’s truths and promises.  I started studying the Word, and listening to good teachings.  I asked two different people to be my mentors who could teach me, love me, encourage me, and walk with me through this healing journey.  I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having good spiritual mentors who can walk with you.

At the second diagnosis the doctors put me on a treatment that I had been on before for three years and was able to tolerate.  Within two weeks of attending these two healing classes I developed side effects that led to my being taken off the treatment.  I was only on the treatment for one month, and I know this was a God intervention because I have not been on any treatment since that time and I am doing extremely well.   A few months after attending these healing classes, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and this brought me to an even greater level of healing.  I became on fire for the Lord and nothing was going to stop me from inheriting all the goodness that God has for each one of us.

As time went on, I continued to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually but the doctor’s reports still did not give me a perfect bill of health.  In the natural, man’s report had not yet lined up with God’s report.  I put my life on hold waiting for that perfect report from man. I knew that I was called to the Healing Ministry, but I was believing the lie of the enemy that I had to first have that perfect report from man.  As I look back, I see that I had elevated the importance of man’s report above God’s report.

Last June I was at a Full Gospel Meeting and someone spoke prophetically over me in front of the entire group of approximately seventy-five people.  He said that I was called to the Healing Ministry now, and I did not need to wait for that perfect report from man to do what God had called me to do.  Two days later Cindy asked me to join their Healing Ministry Team.  As the summer went on, I became involved in a street healing ministry where we went into the streets and prayed for people and encouraged them.  These things helped me take the focus off of myself and put it on God and others.  As the Word says, pray for one another and you shall be healed.   That is exactly what happened.  I became even more on fire for the Lord and started Ministry School last September.  Today I am involved in several Healing Ministry’s and have a heart of compassion for healing and a strong burning desire to spread the Good News of the Gospel everywhere I go.  I want everyone to know the truth about the goodness of God and how much He loves you and wants you to walk in health and prosperity and to have an abundant life here on this earth.  I want everyone to encounter the amazing Presence and the love of the Father.

I want to leave you with a few thoughts that I have learned.  We can choose to focus on His Presence or the presence of our problems.  When we focus on His Presence, His perfect love for us will cast out all of our fears.  The most important thing that I have learned from my journey so far is my identity in Christ. We are God’s children.  We have a spirit of sonship.  When we know who we are in Christ and know that we come from God’s love we don’t have to strive to get our healing because we already have it because of what Jesus did on the Cross.  When we know who we are in Christ, we can walk in His power and authority and rest in His goodness because He is Jehovah Rapha – a God of healing. Our job is to receive our inheritance which is all of God’s benefits and promises and to believe that He does His job well because He is faithful.  He is a God of goodness!  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
