“He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.”

Psalm 147:3

God has done so many miracles for me and us as a family during the past year. My heart is overflowing with thankfulness as I ponder His goodness and mercy on us. 

“He heals the broken-hearted”

In the month of June of last year, I had my third major anxiety attack. I had experienced two miscarriages within six months prior to June and my heart was overwhelmed with grief. I was not able to sleep well and therefore my mind and body stopped working properly. This time my anxiety got so bad that I had to be brought into a Mental Health Care Center.

During the time at the Health Care Center, I went through extremely dark moments. I felt like Satan had been let loose to come and just pound on me with doubts, extreme fear, and hopelessness. The following thoughts went continuously through my mind: “I will die and be lost forever. Life will never be back to normal and I will never be able to be blessed with a family with children of my own,” and many more. Oh, how wrong Satan was! I have firsthand experience that Satan is nothing but a liar. 

My whole close family, as well as my church family and many other children of God across the globe were praying earnestly for me. God answered those prayers and in just over a week I was released from the Health Care Center. God continued to heal my body and mind.

In the month of August, my husband and I had the opportunity to visit a church retreat in Germany. The opportunity was given to be anointed and prayed over for healing. I felt the call from God to be anointed. As a pastor anointed and prayed over me, I felt a wonderful peace coming into my heart, knowing that God would glorify Himself through my life in a wonderful way. The healing was not instantaneous, but slowly God brought healing to my body and mind so that today I can say I am healed! 

I have not had an anxiety attack since that day. God has also blessed us with a beautiful, baby boy exactly one year later. He is healthy and thriving. My heart is overflowing with joy and happiness. God is so good! All praise and honor be to Him.

If your heart is broken, come to HIM (Jesus), and He will heal you.
