With this I close this blog

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!

daughter in her own bed Miracle 23

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!

healed from restless leg syndrome Miracle 22

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!

another lesson in the miraculous

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 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!

miser turned blesser Miracle 21

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!

a child's back Healing 20

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!

money duplicated Healing 19

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!

freed from anxiety Healing 18

A friend was driving in the city and his car started acting like it was going to break down. This would normally cause him severe anxiety but God released him to a new truth that his "safe place" was not at home but anywhere God is and my friend was free from anxiety. He called not for the anxiety but the car. I prayed and the car stopped acting funny and ran smoothly from then on.

boy healed of fever Healing 17

Praise you Jesus....I am thrilled to share this testimony. Normally in the past when my son would get a fever and chills it turned into an asthmatic attack which caused me to freak out when he would even slightly shiver. This day I realized that it was a spirit of retaliation from the day. All day he had been attacked with visions of seeing himself receiving a shot like at the doctors office. These visions were really upsetting for him. We prayed and saw little relief. That evening he suddenly came down with chills and a fever and a headache. As I looked at the situation from a spiritual perspective not a physical one I had peace instead of anxiety. I realized that the enemy was retaliating against us because of what I taught them in school that morning. Jesus was sleeping in the boat during the storm. The disciples woke him to rescue them. Jesus really wanted them to use their own "badge" as I decribed to the kids of authority but He rescued them despite their immature faith in who they really were. Our enemy did not want Will to understand and live out the truth of his role in Kingdom warfare. My friend was led to pray for Will and teach him about our spiritual armor which by the way is already on permanently. Look it up in the Greek. It is fascinating. Anyway I prayed against spirits of retaliation that do not want my son to walk in Jesus deliverance power. He is totally fever free!!!! Praise you Jesus.

home life Healing 16

Jesus is so faithful!!!! He revealed something personal that affects our family life every day and we received a cleansing in that area of our home life and are filled with hope for our future family life.. too personal but definately a miracle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

from despair to hope Healing 15

I had been praying for a friend and when I saw her she melted into tears. For her privacy I will not say what her heartache was but when I prayed for her I realized that God had already shown me I would be praying this way for her ahead of time so I was filled with confidence in her heart being restored to hope. She expressed that she felt hopeful and the weight was lifted. Jesus continue to heal her heart. I saw a plaque that said Jesus not only hears your words He reads your heart. Jesus love heals the broken hearted.

click in knee healed Healing 14

A man had clicking in his knee that God healed and now he can walk freely!!! Praise you Jesus!!!

shoulder healed Healing 13

Jesus healed a woman who had proof with xrays. The doctor was dumbfounded at the "disappearance" of the problem in her shoulder. This woman declared her healing was from prayer and the power of Jesus grace!!! Praise God B can drive and work!!!

healed shoulder Miracle 12

At church a week ago I saw a woman healed in her shoulder. It was amazing to see her go from pain for months to no pain in minutes and it lasted the week . There was a time in the week that the enemy tried to steal the healing with guilt and condemnation and the pain returned as soon as she received the word that she was over using the arm. But when she declared the truth that Jesus took her condemnation and she is righteous in Him...the pain left immediately. Praise Jesus!

debilitating headaches healed Miracle 9-11

Bob bumped into his doctor and told him that he receives healing when I pray for him. His doctor said that they can't do anything for him so he may as well keep calling me since it is working. So Bob does call and every time receives healing. I don't understand why the pain returns but Praise Jesus for loving Bob and healing him!!! Jesus do a deeper healing in his soul that will result in complete healing.

I've learned so much

This 40 days is teaching me a lot. Praise you Jesus for teaching me this week that I can focus on You. Joseph Prince has an amazing teaching on the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse that showed me the Israelites in the wilderness camped in the shape of a cross all with their tent doors facing Center to the tabernacle. God's plan is for us to focus on Him not on the possible enemy attacks. God will guard our back as we keep our eyes on Jesus. I was becoming so sad for the people I have listed on this blog who are not receiving prayer for healing. Jesus plan is not for me to focus on the problems of the world but on Jesus and then He will touch people through me. Peace. Love. All will be an overflow. Now when I think of sick children or hurting souls I have relief instead of burden. I don't have the strength anyway to fight these demonic strongholds...but Jesus has already defeated the enemy and He is in control.

flu symptom disappear Miracle 8

So, Jesus said wait...listen..move. That was a challenge for me...The kids were content I was doing the dishes. Prime moment to call someone who needs healing and ask if I can pray for them. Remembering though that Jesus healed all who reached out to Him for a miracle not necessarily the other way around. So I waited. The phone rang..."Will you pray for me I have the flu and my body is aching all over: my joints in my hips knees and elbows are hurting so badly" Jesus healed the achiness. It disappeared as soon as she received prayer. She still had the stuffy head but not the pain. Thank you Jesus for your love to people and your character of healing touches!

Jesus wants me to listen to Him not busily carry out any agenda. He has some very important things to say! There are so many who need His love and grace I could go crazy reaching out to them all. wait...listen...move...
Is it Andy the homeless guy? Is it the guy at the gas station who is crippled? Who Jesus? When Jesus? You asked Bartimaus What do you want me to do for you? Jesus, make me your clothes. You move. I go along. But thank you for wanting my participation too. I trust you. Why did you tell me to go talk to my Grampa? That scares me....but you did say to consider weaknesses as strengths and strengths as weaknesses. I could go up to a homeless man easily but to my Grampa not so much so. Jesus you are just so cool!!!!! This is so much fun....I am listening with anticipation! I am running to do Your work but I won't let go of Your hand. I love you Jesus. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a boy with diabetes

I bumped into a mom who is suffering with the weight of having a toddler who was recently diagnosed with diabetes. God, I know it is your character to heal this boy. Bring your powerful Grace to this family. Pour out Your heart on this family and give them a miracle for Christmas dear Jesus!!!

man prays to God for first time Miracle 7

I am not really the one to share this but I asked if I could include it...I did get the move of the Spirit to intercede on this one...and it is really good! A man who never talked about Jesus before and rejected religion entirely was released to freedom. It moved him to tears to hear the message of Grace and he prayed for the first time ever. The message of Grace: God accepts you now and doesn't need you to DO anything to earn His favor is SOOOO powerful.....Praise you Jesus!

Woman at the Well

The woman at the well from John 4 got a miracle. She was looking for love and after 5 husbands and the current lover her soul was parched. Jesus talked with her even though it was against societal standards. How many of us are willing to talk to the social outcasts in our area. Aren't they the neediest of all? Grace is for the needy after all. It gets even better. Jesus knew she needed a drink of his love that would not make her thirsty ever again. I know the feeling: God touched me and satiated my heart with love and I know it is real and permanent and I will never go back to not being able to feel love again. So like the woman at the well I am going and telling everyone. And like the people who heard the testimony: they will go to Jesus and hear the truth for themselves from Him that will set them free and they will believe. So don't believe just from my testimony. Like them , "Now we have heard for ourselves and we know that Jesus really is the Savior of the world."

3 Miracles I need help with

There are two boys who are paralyzed that God put right in front of my face: one just as He was telling me to find a child in need of a miracle and there he was being walked in a wheelchair right in front of my eyes. Jesus, we all stand together asking for a miracle for these boys the Christmas. The woman walking the boy I think is a local doctor and I explained that God wanted to give the boy I think his name was Nathan a miracle and she said that they needed overnight help. I prayed the kingdom of God over him and declared that God wanted to totally heal him. Please help me in this pursuit of a miracle. Maybe put his name on you fridge and pray this Christmas season for God to heal him. God does miraclese and we get to be a part of it.
The second one I am asking for help with is a boy who lives near us. Trevor. He needs healing in his soul and healing in his eyes. The therapy cost is $6000 God can provide the money. I am praying that He will heal his eyesight completley and pour out His love into Trevor's soul to heal his wounded heart. Please join me in praying for him this Christmas.
The third one is Chip our UPS driver. He needs healing in his body and God has already begun a work in Chip because unbeknownst to me Karl and his class have been praying for Chip all last year and this year. I told Chip that and he said he does need a miracle for physical healing in his body. It is urgent and God is going to do this miracle. Pray for opportunites for me to release the power of God's grace to Chip.

relief for heartache Miracle 6

There is a mighty warrior for the kingdom of God D.P. who has been in a fierce battle in her home. Demonic realms are tormenting her day and night. She stands firm in Christ...but just like kidney stone pain for me there comes a point when you need relief. God told me plainly in the middle of my pain: "When you are in so much pain it is hard to see you own personal breakthrough that is why we need the body to help us." So D.P. needed a spiritual i.v. and we prayed for her and saw little breakthrough but in my spirit I knew that God is the kind of God that wants to give her relief. I will not give the detail of how this went down but she got much needed relief and God released a word: (in relation to it all being over soon" "it is just around the corner." Praise be to Jesus. RAMAH NISI!

anointing revealed/freed from fear of kidney stone pain Miracle 4

This is a good one: A young girl is sick and no one can figure out what it is after mutliple tests. God uses me to release her to her destiny. She has a POWERFUL anointing to release the creativity of God to those around her to bring hope. We cannot see into the spiritual realm to see how the act of anointing her affected the supernatural all around us but it was powerful enough to land me in the hospital with kidney stones which by the way I should add to the miracle list because I went through the pain with no fear at all. Praise be to Jesus! We hit a big spirit and it fell.

released to love Miracle 5

ME! God did a miracle in my heart. I have wanted this miracle for my whole life even if I didn't know it. I have been searching for love. I tried to find it in many ways through parents, boyfriends, best friends, my husband, my children but I couldn't really feel love and began not to be able to really truly love my husband. This week God broke down the resistance and defensiveness of my heart in a simple vision from Margaret, my sister in Christ. When she told me the vision something happened in my heart. It is kind of like an arrow penetrated and cracked the hard coating and love poured out. I started crying and sobbing and then laughing and laughing and telling Tim I love you I love you I love you. I cannot put into words what it felt like to love. I am in love with my husband overnight because of the power of God reaching down to me and setting me free.
It gets even better:
I asked for prayer from Todd and Dawn, pastors of Healing Grace Ministries. They spoke the truth of Jesus finished work on the cross and God released a simple word: God is your defense Kara. WHOOSH!!! The power of God fell on me like no other time. There are hardly words to describe the relief God flooded my soul with. I had a kidney stone two nights before and when I went to the ER and they gave me an iv for pain I got relief. However the feeling God gave me was 100 x more "feel good" physically my body was just oooohhhhhh...His presence feels soooooo goooood. But the presence and words from God come with power to live out in your every day life and I am already seeing the effects of that in my relationship with Tim. As someone said to me well, the proof will be in the pudding: I respond, "That is where faith comes in" I believe that God miraculously healed my heart and marriage in two encounters with His love and grace and power. Wow. Thank you Jesus Praise You Jesus. You love me enough to heal me!!!!!!!!

wounded hearts Miracles 2 and 3

As a group we told a couple about the grace message and the man was healed in his soul from being wounded as a child and released to his destiny to heal wounded children through Jesus love. The woman was freed from a NASTY spirit of fear that left and the presence of God reached in and touched her in power!

Debilitating pain GONE Day before day 1

God led me to pray for Bob Murphy a man who you will see at BJs in Greenfield working as the greeter/receipt checker. He has been suffering from excruciating pain. God told me to go unbeknownst to me the day following the day he felt like giving up because the pain was too bad and no one knew how to help him physically or spiritually. I preached the message of grace, prayed for him and the PAIN LEFT. ALL of it left and has not returned!!!! This is where the Pay it Forward concept comes in. He is telling everyone he sees about his Jesus who healed him miraculously. He gave testimony before a large church He calls everyone he knows and He tells people as they pass through BJs. He said they pull off to the side to hear his testimony if there is a line. I believe that the 40 people have already been touched but I know my God and He wants to touch more people through me and I welcome that.

40 Days 40 People 40 Ways

This is an adventure in miracles. God told me He was going to do 40 miracles up until Christmas this year. It started off with a bang! More than I expected has happened and with the concept of Pay it Forward it is already exceeded 40 but the stories are fascinating every one.

They are all a result of the message of Grace. Jesus died for you, paid for your freedom from sin, gave you His right/ness, you don't have to try any longer to meet requirements, He rose again to give you power over stongholds in your thinking and feelings that keep you from receiving the overflow of love and power you have always dreamed of in the Spirit filled life.

This message is so REAL that when preached and taken hold of minds emotions and bodies are HEALED by the power of God's acceptance and love.
