Healed Of Eczema

 

I suffered from contact eczema on my right hand for the past 10 years. I visited doctors, dermatologists, and even underwent a series of tests at the National Skin Centre. However, doctors could not explain why the eczema was only found on my right hand and not on other parts of my body. They said it was an incurable condition which could only be managed by applying moisturisers and steroids. I bought numerous skincare products but there was no improvement.

The eczema on my hand was bad. It was a vicious cycle that most people suffering from eczema would know: the area would itch, I would scratch, and the scratching would cause bleeding and dry skin, and the area would itch again.

Sometimes, the lesions on the skin would be so painful that I did not even want to wash my hand under the water. This condition also made me self–conscious as the pus and blood that oozed out from the lesions on my hand were unsightly.

However, after attending New Creation Church for the last three years and partaking of the Communion every week, my eczema got better and better.

Though it would still flare up sometimes, I continued to believe that by Jesus’ stripes, I am healed.

On 28 January 2014, I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to create a photo album to chronicle God’s healing of my eczema. At times, I didn’t take any pictures because my skin did not seem to improve and my faith was low.

Nevertheless, God is faithful to our prayers EVEN when we are disheartened. His healing is not dependent on our faithfulness but on His unfailing love and grace.

As of 18 July 2016, I did not use any moisturising or steroid cream. It has been many months since I last used these products and I have lost track of when was the last time I had used them.

Today, the skin on my right hand looks as good as new. A good friend who knew of my condition remarked that he could no longer tell my right hand from my left. I believe that Jesus has healed my so–called “incurable” condition. Hallelujah!

Panic Attacks Gone

 

On 19 June 2016, while I was making my way home on the train, I suddenly felt dizzy and breathless. My heart palpitated extremely fast and I almost fainted. I was praying as I made my way to the nearest clinic.

At the clinic, the doctor found that my blood pressure level was very high. The clinic called for an ambulance to send me to the hospital. I was admitted on the same evening, and stayed there for two days and two nights.

Thanks to the prayers, support and help from my loved ones, recovery was easy. However, I would think to myself how things could have been worse and what could have happened to me on that day. Day and night, I would thank the Lord for His deliverance but deep down in my heart, I was still worried and fearful.

Four days after I was discharged from the hospital, I experienced another panic attack. My heart started to beat very fast. I went to the clinic and they asked me to go back to the hospital again since my blood pressure reading was high.

Again, I was sent to the accident and emergency unit. That night, my employers visited me in the hospital and told me that only Jesus could help me. Later, the doctor told me that I needed to be put under observation for eight hours.

Before my employers went home, they prayed for me. On the same night, I also asked God to give me calmness and peace of mind. I also declared healing over my body and that the blood of Jesus would cover me. The next morning, which was a Sunday, the doctor informed me that I could be discharged because my blood pressure was back to normal and there were no other complications. Praise God!

On our way home, I told my employers that I would go to church with them instead of going on my own. The Lord is so good because He put me at the right place at the right time. That day, the sermon by Pastor Prince was about Psalm 91 and God’s protection over us.

When he was preaching, he stopped and said that God had told him that someone in the congregation was worried about getting a stroke. But God was assuring the person that it would not happen.

When I heard Pastor Prince said those words, I was in tears. My employer looked at me and said that the message was for me. I knew and believed in my heart that the message was for me. God is so good! He knew my worries and sent the answer through Pastor Prince. I felt so loved. After the service, I approached a church leader to pray over me.

The next day, when I experienced heart palpitations again, I prayed and declared that I am complete in Christ, it was just a lying symptom and that by Jesus’ stripes I am already healed. After a few minutes, I was calm and the palpitations had stopped. Thank You, Jesus!

Since then, when I wake up every day, I would always declare that I am complete in Christ. I know that I am greatly blessed, highly favoured and deeply loved. To God be the glory!

No Longer An Angry Mum

 

I used to struggle a lot with my temper towards my children, especially my eldest boy, in the area of his studies. During the run–up to exams, daily blow–ups were a fixture in our household.

After every incident, I would pray and ask God to change me. At that time, we were still relatively new to New Creation Church. I would still deal with sin the same way I was taught in the past. I would confess my sin to God, and ask for His forgiveness. Then, I would vow not to do it again.

I employed all kinds of strategies to try and stop losing my temper by counting to 10, taking deep breaths, leaving the room, screaming into a pillow and beating up a pillow. I even made a poster for my children to wave in front of my face. It read, “Mummy, you are raising your voice! Please leave the room NOW to cool down!” Needless to say, none of these worked for long.

I spent a lot of time after each relapse wondering why God was not answering my prayer and changing me. This sense of failure added to the guilt and worries I had over the impact of my actions and my son’s studies, and these led to even more anger outbursts. I dreaded the year my son had to take his Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE). I couldn’t bear to think how I would turn out when I was already so out of control in a normal year.

Now that we are seven months into the PSLE year, it suddenly occurred to me that this year has been incredibly peaceful! The exam is just two months away and I couldn’t quite believe it. Even my children and husband all agreed that my temper had improved a lot this year.

The truth of the matter is, sometime in the middle of last year, my family faced with new challenges that took my mind off my temper problem. The challenges were so overwhelming that I desperately sought Jesus in order to cope. I began to play Pastor Prince’s sermons regularly in the car and also read regularly from grace–based devotionals and the Psalms, and declared out loud that I am the righteousness of God in Christ whenever I felt fearful.

These constant reminders of Christ’s finished work, His unceasing love and my unassailable position in Him, had given me such peace, security and joy to face all the challenges. This deep peace even extended to the area of my son’s studies. I have not used any of those strategies to control my temper this year because the things that used to rouse my anger easily in the past, no longer made me angry.

Because of the challenges, I had to return to work and had even less time to guide my boy in his studies. To counter my anxiety over this, we took to praying together in the car every morning when I sent my children to school. We would start by reminding ourselves of what Jesus has done, and of our righteousness in Him. We would also remind ourselves that all the blessings Jesus deserves, we now receive because of His finished work and that His supply of grace is never–ending. Then, we would pray for God to give my son the desire to study and for God to empower him to act out this desire.

For Chinese language, my son’s weakest subject, we would remind ourselves that God created the Chinese language and that He is the best speaker and writer of it in the whole universe, and because He is with my son, he can draw from Him whenever he needs guidance. Praying daily had really contributed to the peace I had over the exams.

It is very clear to me now that when I was preoccupied with my temper problem and trying by my efforts to overcome it, I was bound to fail. Victory only came when I was no longer focused on the problem, not even on trying to solve it, but focused instead on Jesus and His finished work. All glory be to God!

Thank you, Pastor Prince and New Creation Church for teaching so clearly about God’s grace.
