Fascinating how God works...this started one way and ended another. I thought 40 miracles and I got a mission in recording what I see God do, new definitions for miracle, and the prophetic insight to the power of the testimony and power for the keepers of the testimonies!

For 5 1/2 years I have tried unsuccessfully to get my daughter to sleep on her own. It has been VERY frustrating for me. I gave up hope that I would ever have my own space to sleep in. God recently revealed what was going on in her room that caused her fear and my husband and I each nightmares any time we slept in that room. With friends and Joy we all "swept the room clean" Since 8 nights ago my daughter has had no more fear in that room. I have been trying to get her to sleep on her own but with little success and a lot of sleeplessness on my part. God released me to freedom from hopelessness two nights ago and it only took that one night to train her to sleep in her room. Last night she did not get up once! I SLEPT IN MY BED ALL NIGHT LONG WITHOUT HER for the first time since I can remember! Thank you Jesus!
I have suffered from RLS for years. I am becoming accustomed to God's healing power so instead of taking medication the past two nights I suffered through the "torture" and pressed into God for my healing. Each night I received revelation about where this spirit of restlessness comes on me. Both nights I went go from a 0 to a 10 in one second when a certain thing occurs. I continued in prayer praise reading meditating pleading for hours the first night and one hour last night. Each night I was released when I declared a certain passage of scripture and meditated on the blessings and promises to me in Ezekiel. I am going to continue to receive healing IF restlessness comes on me again but it is a wonder that I could have the symptoms of RLS disappear through meditation on truth instead of medication. With medication I am tied to that every night. This way there is hope of not only healing of RLS but healing of the soul issues that cause the symptoms to occur. Praise you Jesus!
I have been reading the testimonies of miracles on Bill Johnson's Bethel Church in Redding CA website. God wants us to record what we see like John said in the Bible " I recorded what I saw.." I realized that this 40 days has been a lot about teaching me how to record what I see God doing. On this website http://www.ibethel.org/features/testimonies/index.php?f=testimonies.php testimonies are posted from even other churches. I knew that it couldn't be right that this 40 days was all about me but I couldnt figure out how this would all work until now... I am going to be posting some miracles that I collect from other people in our area and from some associated churches. This has been a fun lesson in the miraculous. It feels like a miracle to me to be writing because since I was a little girl I have always known that I would be a writer!
A friend was overtaken with bitterness toward a man who was treating him unfairly. I am keeping the details private but the story is an amazing one. This was my friends worst week of his life. He had done something remarkable and instead of being appreciated he was being reamed out. My friend prayed for two days and couldn't shake this resentment. So finally he told God I will not stop praying until this spirit leaves me. 45 minutes later he found himself declaring praise to God that this resentment was not a part of who he is. He declared that his heart was perfect toward this man because his spirit was righteous in God's eyes because of the finished work on the Cross of Christ. Instantly he was freed from the feelings of bitterness. 20 minutes later he received a phone call from the man. The man showered him with blessing and appreciation. Praise God that when we come in line with our true identity in Christ the enemy cannot hold us and God will also release others around us!
My son's back was hurting after a sliding incident. I prayed for him and asked him to declare that he agreed God wanted to heal his back. He said, "I agree." Then he said, "Do you think I have to shout it out?" I said no. Immediately his back felt better. I kept asking him and he had been totally healed! Jesus loves the little children!
A friend was approached about giving money charitably. He had the thought to give $50 but he had already designated it for something else charitable but decided that God would provide for both. He gave the $50 not knowing where the other money would come from. That day or the next he received a random check in the mail for $50! Nothing like that had ever happened to him before and he was thrilled! Praise Jesus!
