Rejoice with me!

At the age of 21, six weeks after the birth of my second son. I was diagnosed with SIN 2 cervical displaysia. SIN 3 is cervical cancer. It was a very hard time in my life with struggles in every direction. I had just endured a very sick baby, whom was in NICU for two weeks. Rob had taken a job that had him traveling and gone for months at a time. I had been given the DEPO shot at my six weeks post natal appointment, during the same visit that my pap was taken. I had BAD side effects from this shot, which included non stop bleeding for the duration of the life of the shot (3 months). So I was given my diagnosis, yet we could not do the biopsy until I stopped bleeding. We waited and waited, the whole time wondering if this was an aggressive displaysia, while words like possible hysterectomy were thrown around.

My labs also explained why I had this horrible diagnosis. I had the HPV virus. After 3 months of waiting, we went in for the biopsy. I remember crying in the waiting room after the procedure and telling Rob that I was so happy that we had had at least two children, because the Dr's made it sound as though a hysterectomy had a high possibility of occurring. A few weeks later we were told our "number" of SIN and I was scheduled to be frozen. The freezing worked and The Father covered me with Mercy. I was told I would need a pap smear every six months as opposed to the normal year and we went on with our lives.

Fast forward three years, to the pregnancy of our fourth child. During my routine initial pap, displaysia rears its ugly head once again. I was only about 8 weeks pregnant, and all we could do was wait for 7 long months. But, The LORD had a miracle to perform in my life I just didn't know it yet. Many people prayed for me during this time, the men at Robs work came together in the office and stood in prayer to our wonderful Father. The folks at church, came together and lifted us up in prayer. I had my beautiful fourth son on July 3rd 2001. I went in for my pap smear six weeks later, the nurse said she would call me if the results were positive, and that it would be about two weeks. More waiting....two weeks came and went and no phone call, so I called them and asked for my results. She said "its negative" I asked her to check again ;-) and she replied again with "yes mam, negative"

You see I had been HEALED! I knew it, The LORD told me I would be. But I needed proof! I was given a word during this time by a lady whom I had not met before and it was this "You will be healed and restored from the things that you carry with you due to your sinful past." Praise The Father!!!

So moving on to present day rejoicing....it is six years later and I received a phone call from my midwife today to let me know that it is once again negative! This is just one example of how The Lord restored me and made me whole, from a life filled with heart ache and pain of all types. HE can do this for you! He can restore you, make you white as snow....you only need to ask HIM, truly give your life to HIM and HE will make you WHOLE!!!
