I've Been Healed!

This is so exciting!

For a long time, just about 2 and a half years now, I have struggled with a very annoying jaw problem. My 'disc' was loose, I'd been told, which caused my jaws to make a variety of scary KA-CHUNKs, CREAK-Cracks, CLICK-Pops, and other weird sounds. I didn't have any pain, but I could feel bones in my cheeks and the hinges of my jaws move around whenever I opened my mouth wide enough to bite a large hamburger. That was a little unnerving, to say the least! I couldn't yawn without my jaw feeling tight and then snapping loose with a "Crack!".

Then, this morning in church, our pastor called anyone who needed prayer for healing to come to the front.

I believe that God still heals people today. (And I've been blessed as a result) I am pretty sure there is no place in the Bible where it says "And I the Lord will stop healing people at such-and-such a year" the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob still works in his children's lives.

I walked to the front and asked for prayer for my jaws.

A wonderful, sweet lady named Nikki, who had also struggled with jaw problems in the past, prayed for me, then asked if I believed God would heal me. "Yes!" I said. "Then according to your faith you are healed!" She said, a smile on her face! We hugged and I thanked her and then walked back to my pew.

About ten seconds later I was brave enough to open my mouth and see if it still clicked.


I could open my mouth as wide as I pleased and the motion was smooth and effortless! HALLELUJAH!! "Thank you God!" I whispered. I turned to my Mother, Father, and two younger brothers seated next to me in the pew and whispered excitedly "My jaw doesn't click anymore!" Their faces lit up and they smiled happily. They knew how much the clicking had bothered me.

I ran up to Miss Nikki after the church service had concluded and told her my jaw didn't click anymore, eagerly demonstrating how I could open my mouth smoothly. "Praise the Lord!" She said, giving me a glad hug.
My sentiments exactly!




  1. That is wonderful Julia! What great news!!


  2. That is so awesome! I am sure you are so thankful to the Lord! Have a good week!!!

  3. That's so amazing Julia! We serve an awesome God!

    What type of church do you go to?

  4. Hi Julia!
    Soooo glad your healed!


    P.S. I believe that you're a winner for the photo taking contest....did you send in your address and so on?
    (Can't remember....short term memory loss!!!:)

  5. Julia,

    I wanted to let you know just how much I loved your latest comment on the Rebelution. I am exactly like you. After my final days of homeschool high school, I will begin my training as a wife and mother (Lord willing!) I will study some subjects, but having a family of my own is my main goal. It is so wonderful when you find on other blogs people who think the same way!!

    As to your post, the Lord does amazing things!!

    In Christ,

  6. Wow! That is so neat! We serve such an awesome God :)
    I found your blog via Kindred Spirits Network and it is so refreshing to me to read about another girl around my age that wants to be a wife and mother! Very cool :)

  7. Thanks for the suggestions, Julia! I have read the Elsie series...ok, not all 28 books...I think I'm still on book 21...have been for a few years...yikes...
    I haven't read the Millie Keith series or the Mitford series. I listened to the Mitford radio drama. However, I didn't really enjoy it so I'm not really wanting about reading the books. Sarah's enjoying them, so maybe it was just me or maybe it was the radio drama...
    I'm really looking for a book that's not part of a series, since I don't have a huge amount of time on vacation to read (mostly just in the plane and car is the time I'll get to read) and I don't want to get into a big book or a series since we're starting school the day after we get back.
    I know, I sound soooo picky. I'm really sorry. But you've been a great help and you're so patient! Thank you! :o)
    P.S. I just sent you an email.

  8. Oops. Made a mistake. (blushes) I couldn't decide how I wanted to say it so you got both ways. lol
    I said:
    "However, I didn't really enjoy it so I'm not really wanting about reading the books."
    I meant to say:
    "However, I didn't really enjoy it so I'm not really wanting to read the books."
    "However, I didn't really enjoy it so I'm not really excited about reading the books."
    Joanna Moment... Sorry, Julia. :o)
