Such an amazing evening filled with God’s grace and all these beautiful ladies. My friend @cherylroseborough asked me to open my home for her December @selfesteemelevated “Naomi Speaks” Appreciation Dinner. At first, I was hesitant as we just moved in and our house is not completely finished yet. And, I was planning on being out of town this past weekend. Apparently God had other plans as that trip fell through. What a sense of humor and omnipotence God has. And being obedient to Him fulfills blessings in a mighty way. He knew exactly what I needed and where I needed to be last Friday.
I was expecting to pour into these women, but they poured into me…so much more. I have been suffering from chronic pain for over 8 years, and now a mysterious illness that has taken me from cancer doctors to rheumatologists with yet still no firm diagnosis. I can’t even begin to express to you how much suffering I have endured.
That only increased after almost dying from a severe bout with Covid that rendered me hospitalized, in ICU, and almost dead. After my temperature reached 107-108 it was a miracle I survived, and with my brain still functioning. I’ve been in Long Covid therapy for over a year. The mysterious inflammation that plagues my body has taken a toll on me physically, mentally and in every area of my life. I’ll just leave it at that for now.
These ladies formed a circle around me and prayed for my healing on Friday night. They spoke in tongues. They cried out to God, they sang and they gave me hope for the first time in many years. I know God knows my name. The Bible says, “I knew you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart for me before you were born; I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.” He knew me before I was even a thought and HE KNOWS MY NAME. I believe I am healed in Jesus name. Thank you to all the ladies that came and participated in the worship. We were all surely blessed and God knows all of our names.
