5.Healing through dealing with the inner man
The worst time of my life came after various traumatic experiences, a big operation and catching a virus. I was immobilized. I could not walk or
live a normal lifestyle. I was utterly exhausted and felt near death. I am not exaggerating in the slightest,
I had no strength. I could not lift my arms,
I had to crawl slowly and painfully to the bathroom next door, I couldn't walk at all, I was bedridden. Upon asking Yahweh
if I was to die,
He replied: “If I will that you tarry till I come, what is that to thee?” – a quote of course from the time when Peter the disciple asked
Yahshua what would happen to John (read John 21:21-22) The point of His comment to me was, that I had an understanding that my life was in His
hands, and He would determine the time of my death, and it was not my business.
He did tell me however, that I was ill because of deep inner trauma, tragedy and torment. True, my life had been difficult (and I may add here
that some of it was of my own making)
After having many appointments and tests at hospital the consultant (almost in a whisper as it was a ‘new thing’ in the 1980’s) suggested, almost
apologetically (if I could ‘accept it’) that I had what was known as “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” and that there was no known cure. Happy days. What
he did not know though was that I knew Someone – who could cure me.
As Yahshua had already told me the cause of my illness I began addressing the pain deep down inside me which had brought my body and life literally
to a standstill.
I sought a Christian counsellor to pray with me through the issues.
This went on for about a year during which time I was given relief from all duties naturally and spiritually.
Gradually, and with a great deal of courage I began to address issues of childhood abuse and trauma and other tragedies and difficult events and
circumstances which perhaps I had wrongly ignored or ‘pushed down’ inside myself for the sake of caring for the people I was responsible for.
What a relief to finally deal with the pain, and how wonderfully Yahshua ministered to me during these difficult times, and how marvellous that
as the issues were brought to light and healed, my physical body and spirit began to recover! Later, I began studying “A More Excellent Way”
a book by a renowned minister who has spent his life studying the spiritual roots of diseases and finding wonderful answers (see later in the article)
The ways of Yahweh are past finding out, and His care and love for us is incredible. I can say today many years after these events took place
that when He heals, and when He delivers and moves in our life, it is forever. I am so very thankful that today I can stand healed,
delivered and free.
I no longer have what is called ‘Chronic Fatigue Syndrome’ but am healed, healthy and strong.
6.Healing through Persistent Prayer
I was in Israel working with a group of dancers creating a film called "The Joy of Return. (" The film "Joy of Return" is available for sale.
One night a terrific pain came into my side. I couldn't stand, I was bent over, rolling on the bed in agony. My husband Peter and friend Ginnie came
and began to pray earnestly for the pain to subside, for my healing. The pain grew worse and worse, they prayed 'without ceasing'. The prayer went on
for five, ten, fifteen minutes. The pain did not subside. They prayed more, and more, and still more. Three quarters of an hour, an hour, without
stopping. I continued to groan and clutch my side.
They continued to pray...
Suddenly, I fell back on the bed and amazingly began to laugh. I laughed and laughed as I felt the awesome
Presence of Yahweh in the room. I saw a vision and the pain
as suddenly as it had come.
The vision was of a concentration camp. I was overwhelmed with the sight of the barbed wire, line upon
line creating a formidably high, strong fence around
beloved Jewish captives. I realised, that this terrible wire had been a formidable thing to face day after day, unable to do anything about it.
I cried out for forgiveness for what the Gentiles had done - what we had done to His people. I began to cry, tears rolling
down my face. I continued to pray for forgiveness. The pain forgotten, I related to Peter and Ginnie what Yahweh had shown me, it was an awesome
moment. I was both healed and enlightened, through the power of Elohim and through persistent prayer.
The next morning as it happened, we were to shoot a portion of the film which included the
reconciliation between Jew and Gentile. Yahweh was giving me the right spirit to portray my part in the film. He is amazing.
