Danielle’s Testimony

How Jesus changed my Life

I was a rebellious teenager with my anger at God after the sudden death of my Dad. I went to uni, where I studied enviromental and evolutionary science to prove that God didn’t exist, and I was offered a job in Zakynthos as a Manager of a conservation project working with sea turtles. I had everything I wanted; my degree, dream job, I had good friends, I was living on a greek island. But there was still something missing. No matter what I could get my hands on, it never filled that void. Two discs slipped in my back. Suddenly, I was numb from my waist down, and I was in agony. I had an operation, then the symptoms of other diseases started to manifest. I couldn’t walk. I was on crutches. I had metal supports up my wrists together. I permanently had supports in my knees and ankles. One day Mum said, ‘God has the power to break the strongholds of fear in your life. If you let me pray with you, God’ll take it all ways.’ Something in me snapped, and I saw red. I launched at my mum. I took two steps and then fell on my knees. “Mum, I need help. If you think Jesus can help me, I don’t care what it takes.’ She took me into the prayer room and I got on my knees and said the sinner’s prayer. I fully repented, and I’ve never been the same. That August, I was at a music festival . A lady came over and said, ‘Can I pray for you? She asked, ‘Are you feeling anything?’ I said, ‘No, it’s okay, God must be developing my character through suffering.’ And she looked at me and said, ‘God loves your character through suffering.’ What loving father would give his child a disease to develop their character? Every good and perfect gift comes from above.’ It was like the lights came on, and I was thinking, ‘I’m believing a lie.’ I repented and the Lord said to me, ‘Woman, thou art loosed from thine disability. Run.’ And I ran out of that tent, and I ran around that field three times, shouting, ‘You’ve healed me, I’m healed, I’m healed, there’s no pain in my body.’ That was 2014, and now I’m fantastic, I’ve got my mobility back, and I’m just loving life.
