Monday, July 22, 2019 – Just a regular day, right?

Not for me. For 2+ years I’ve suffered from severe, excruciating back pain. The kind that medicine can’t even touch. You’re thinking, “just take something stronger.” Well, because of several autoimmune illnesses, I’m already taking pain medication that should cover my back. I have tried everything, even shots.


I was walking through my bedroom and was stopped in my tracks by the intense pain in my lower back. Totally fed up with the throbbing pain, the kind you can’t ignore, I began to call out to Jesus.

I stood there and started quietly chanting Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Over and over again and again. Telling him how much I loved him; how tired I was of hurting so much… CONSTANTLY IN PAIN!!! By now I was crying.

I surrendered all the pain to Jesus.

He died for me and hurt so much more than this. I thanked Him for dying for me and asked him to please take this pain too?

Then I just stood there for a while afraid to move. When I did, the pain was gone! I haven’t taken a muscle relaxer/pain pill for my back in 19 days! Praise God! God is Good!

Don’t give up hope. Don’t give up believing God wants to do the same thing for you. Every time you doubt, complain and become fearful, you allow the sickness and disease more power and control. Don’t give it a foothold. The disease is not just a cross you have to bear. It is a demon that needs to be expelled. Thank you, Jesus, for carrying our diseases and for taking away our infirmities.

“to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet: ‘He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.'” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:17-18
