A Sign from God


I want to write a testimony to the glory of God. I have been thinking about the verse from Psalm 33:4b, “For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does” (NIV).

I’ve been praying for divine healing for a long time because I’m always in pain day and night. I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.

In 2019, I unexpectedly got cancer in my thyroid. I had to have two surgeries. After the first surgery, the doctor said they almost got to the nerves where I could have lost my voice. He didn’t want me to wake up without a voice. That’s why they operated on my other gland six months later. Everything went well. The surgeon said I had a two inch tumor with aggressive cancer.

I had to have iodine treatments. I thought everything was fine. But after that, I had to go for an examination again. They realized the cancer was growing back. The growth was only the size of a pea.

Then we started praying to God very earnestly that He would heal me if He wanted me to stay here longer.

I’ve been praying for a sign from God for a long time. Then, on February 13, 2022, Brother Kehler preached about divine healing. His theme was “God heals all infirmities!” from Isaiah 53 and Psalm 103. He ended the message by saying if there was anyone who wanted to be anointed, there would be an opportunity next Sunday. Sunday came, and I still had no assurance because I had been praying for a sign. Suddenly, the Lord gave me the conviction that I should be anointed. Then I became calm inside. I went forward and was anointed by three pastor brothers. God heard the prayers. I had to wait a while before I got my results from tests again. Two doctors said everything looked fine. I have had to go for ultrasound scans every six months since. I recently had another check-up, and today I found out from the doctor that everything is still fine. “Praise the Lord!” I said inwardly right away. I had already told my doctor that I was anointed and that the Lord healed me.

I am so thankful and praise the Lord that He counted me worthy of His touch. It’s such a sacred act. I would advise every reader to pray earnestly for divine healings. We need them more than ever and also to encourage others.

United in love to Christ, your sister in the Lord,
