Hello all, I am a woman, who went thru 5-6 years of OCD. I studied all aspects of it. It was unhealed wounds. I was wrestling in spiritual terms with a stronghold. I had one foot in eastern religion, one foot in what Jesus taught about one life. But God has set me free, and let me know solidly as it says in His word in Hebrews 9:27, that man is appointed to die once. I am so much better, and thankful for the level of peace i have, but i feel like I just want to pray for cleansing, and total healing. The OCD is mild to none now, but i am still restoring. I daily try my best, to lead any who listen to Jesus. I hope and pray after all my flailing, and sitting on the sidelines for a long while healing, that I can heal others. I try to encourage others in pain that they can get through. If anyone wants to give me a good word or encouragement today (in the discussion area), I feel slightly thirsty for it.. i have lovely friends and family, thank God, but I just welcome any encouragement so I can be my strongest, in God, to encourage others. Thank you!

Sometimes God allowed us to go thru some pain and healing later for the purpose below: 2Corinthian 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. So that you may understand & have compassion on others who are going thru what you had gone thru. That you may bring them comfort and hope thru the faithfulness of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive" Matthew 21:22 ask for a full healing and believe for one and u shall receive
Yes, all according to the will of God and his plan when we allow him to work in us and when we are willing to conform our will to accept his will and to receive his plan, leaning more fully on him confident and with all trust and faith in him. We are only more fully whole when we are in him. We only know more of ourselves and about ourselves when we know him. We are only whole, complete and worthy when we are in him and accept him. Matthew 8 1-4, The word wish was quickly replaced with Will according to the scripture and the translation of the passage. 2, and then a Leper approached, did him homage, and said, "Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean." 3. He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, "I will do it. Be made clean." His leprosy was made cleansed immediately. Other translations have indicated "I will it" therefore replacing the word and meaning of "wish" with the word and meaning of "will" He always referred to "will" rather than "wish."
Yes. If you are asking this question, it is because you either haven't asked GOD for this 'complete healing' yet, or because you have asked and it hasn't happened yet. I will try to cover both possibilities. "And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who draws near to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6). If you haven't actually asked yet because you aren't sure it is right to make such a request of GOD, let me assure you that GOD actively seeks 'true worshipers' above all else, (John 4:23). Jesus used this term in context of explaining to a Samaritan woman, (a 'social outcast' from the perspective of the Jews), that GOD wants people who look past the surface and see His true motives, vision, and purposes. If you TRULY align yourself with that 'divine will' you will be amazed to find that there is literally nothing GOD will not do for you in response, (1 John 5:14-15). I am only still alive today because Christ once graciously did this for me. I 'accidentally' put myself into a situation where I didn't have any 'superficial' motives or viewpoints left and I asked GOD to do something 'impossible' for me and He actually did. In fact, He didn't hesitate, ease me into it, or prepare me for it, other than putting me in a situation where I was literally dying and couldn't summon the strength or motive to ask for duplicitous, dishonest or selfish reasons. My death just didn't seem 'right' and He apparently agreed. I was in college and apparently contracted an infection from food that was being served in a gorgeous cafeteria that also happened to be riddled with listeria bacteria and no one knew it. My roommate had just gone home to Alaska for a family emergency, (many thousands of miles away), and I got very ill so quickly that I laid in bed unable to move. My resident adviser looked everywhere for me and inquired everywhere but no one had seen me since my roommate left. He briefly looked into our dark dorm room and saw no one, so he locked it up from the outside, assuming that I must have gone with my roommate to help his family. There I laid getting weaker and weaker for days, unable to speak or move until I finally felt as if I were floating in my own body. I wasn't afraid or panicked, I just thought that GOD was calling me home, yet it somehow didn't seem 'right.' So I just simply asked GOD why I felt this way and why I wasn't excited to be 'going home.' I didn't hear any response at all, but I 'felt' like I had been answered somehow anyway. Just then, a group of five young men came into my dorm room while one of them was returning an article of clothing I had lent them. The one returning the clothing dropped it on the floor and ran over to me, followed by the others. No one said a word but they picked me up and propped me up in a chair. No one asked if I was okay, why I was there, why I was so weak, or thought to call an ambulance for me. They each seemed to just be somehow operating on 'autopilot' and began to pray over me in turn. The thought came over me like a wave: "Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him." (James 5:14-15). These were the 'elders.' A bunch of college goof offs GOD just randomly recruited to 'save' me. Not exactly what I had EVER pictured when reading that verse. How could this have even happened? But it did. I never went to a doctor, or even had a 'follow up.' I was up, showered and eating lunch in less than an hour and I warned the college about the contamination. Others were just starting to show symptoms too. I only know what it even was because they 'found' it later after testing for it and tracing the exact source. This was the 'true worship.'
