    Greatest Healer of All
    Grace1337 posted:
    Hello friends, this isn't a question just a positive and encouraging story. Like some of you I had used drugs and shared needles, was very reckless in the past. I've been clean for 5 years and since then had two beautiful boys. I was told about a month ago that I had antibodies for Hepatitis C, and this scared me to death. I was overcome with guilt, shame, anger for what I exposed myself to when I was younger. I needed help, and just not from healthcare professionals, I needed God to heal me. I prayed and opened my heart to God begging Him to heal me, asking Him for forgiveness of my sins for being so destructive in the past. I started going to church and reading the Bible, I gave my burdens, worry, pain, fear and doubt to Him and did my best to give Him control of the situation. When I started to feel worry and doubt that this was the end, I turned to him and asked Him for strength because I couldn't do this on my own. I had faith that He would heal me because He loves me unconditionally and despite of my transgressions, He would heal me if I boldly asked Him to. Less than a week ago I went to the specialist, had my blood drawn to see if I actually had the virus. I prayed for the best and reminded myself that God will protect me no matter what the outcome may be. A couple of days ago I got a call and was told that I do NOT have Hepatitis C. Friends, I truly believe God will heal us if we just believe in Him and open our hearts to Him. God wants us to give Him our burdens because we are too weak to carry it ourselves. He can heal us because He loves us unconditionally and is the greatest Healer there is. Please pray to Him for healing, He will heal you. Also, when talking to the specialist I was told that in 3yrs there will be a new treatment that will have an 80% cure rate even for genotype 1. The specialist sounded quite optimistic about this new treatment so don't lose faith or become discouraged. Open your hearts and minds to the power of prayer and God, He'll always listen to you for we have a merciful, God full of grace and love. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God bless you.

    can relate - i was 7 years into recovery when i found out - im grateful now for had i been diagnosed in early recovery i likely would have relapsed -and the God of my understanding does work miracles --- however statistically speaking about 1 in 4 people infected with hcv spontaneously clear the virus - just because one tests positive for antibodies doesnt mean one has an active infection - the antibody test is only the first step in diagnosis - the pcr viral load test is the only way to confirm an active infection - this is likely your story and it may well be an act of God - i also rely on faith and the power of prayer - i believe thats a big part in my cirrhosis not progressing over the past 10 - 15 years - thanks for sharing and God bless

    AMEN SISTER! I am sooo glad to hear that there is some FAITH in this room! I too am a Christian, when I went to the Dr. three years ago they had told me about this new drug that they were making and so I waited on the Lord. Now I am on my second week of treatment and I feel that it is really bringing me closer to God in so many ways, not to mention that I dont want to experiance the pains of side effects that so many suffer. They are all in my prayers. As you are as well. This is Gods will for our lives. He will always have his way, what ever it takes to get us on our knees and knowing that we need a savior, well this is how much the Lord loves us! I know that there is a God and when I calm my mind at night I can feel the Holy Spirit cleansing my body of harmful feelings. I was watching TBN today and the preacher said that the Spirit works at his best when we have given complete authority (gave all our fears) to God. I believe in this. I am so glad that you found your way into the hands of our great God. Congrats on the results. You have 2 wonderful kids and it was Gods will for you to be well for them! AMEN, your in my prayers!!
