A bump on the head

My name is Bernadette and I am a part of DB Ministries. I host a church in my house led by Pastor Celia Brockhurst. The name of the church is Dagenham Miracle Family Church; God gave us that name about 2 years ago.

I would like to share a testimony with you. For about 10 years, but it seems as long as I can remember I had a lumpy bumpy thing on my head. I was always aware of it and when I combed my hair I was careful not to knock it.

I would say around 1 year ago, I became more aware of it and started worrying about it and allowing my mind to imagine all sorts of things, none of which were good. You see, my Dad has had skin cancer so I knew what it looked like and how I imagined it would feel as my Dad had once described it to me, and of course it is not what you see on the outside but what grows inside.

I never really shared it with anyone, as the devil did not want me to. It was not part of his strategy, as he wanted to keep me silent. Eventually, I did share it with my sister and we prayed but the fear of it was still on my mind. I decided to go to the doctors to find out what I was dealing with so that I knew how to pray and what to pray for. The doctor said that it did not look suspicious and was like a fungal or a virus, and if I wanted to he could cut it out. I said that I would think about it and let him know my decision.

God had said that before I went to the doctors He would cause the lumpy bumpy thing to wither and fall off. Obviously, after hearing what the doctor had said I was relieved that it did not look suspect, but then I thought “What am I doing accepting that thing, even if it did not look suspect as it was definitely suspect on a child of God. So I started declaring the truth over that thing on my head, but it was still there annoying me and my thoughts turned to the doctor’s offer of having it removed, but then I remembered what God had promised. I still fiddled with the lump all the time until I went on holiday with my family. We were having such a lovely time together that I forgot about the lump. Well, not quite, but I started to let go of it in my mind.

Praise the Lord that I took my hands off it long enough for God to do what he said he would do, to cause that lump to wither and fall off. When I got home from that trip I searched my head for the lump and even looked and felt all over my head in places where I knew the lump had not been. I could not find it as on 15th July 2008 the lump had gone completely.

Faith is now arising in me for God’s healing power and the name of the church is as God called it, a miracle church. This is not the only miracle as there are others with many more to come.

I give all the glory and honour to God, for he who promised is faithful.
