So this isnt so much a discussion i really just wanted to share my testimony but if u have any questions or anything than feel free to comment!!
Okayy well first off my name is Amy, im 19 (turning 20 in 2 weeks lol)
soo about 4 years ago i was diagnosed with Alopecia. Within 3 weeks of being diagnosed i went from having a full head of very long hair to having next to noo hair at all and having to buy my first wig!! The doctors had told me that based on the pattern of my hair loss that i was going to have Alopecia Universalis and to just start getting use to the fact that i wasnt going to get my hair back :(
It was, hands down, the hardest thing i have ever had to deal with to this day!
I wasnt a Christian back then tho, when i was diagnosed with aa i was a very troubled, lost and depressed girl!! I had gotten myself involved with drugs, drinking, boys (and bad ones at that) and everything else that comes along with that lifestyle.
Having gone through all that, especially loosing my hair, i really began to doubt Gods existence!! Now i was raised a Catholic my whole life so i knew about God and Jesus and all that but i really turned away from it when i had lost my hair.
My best friend had gotten saved and started attending this Christian church, she invited me out, and i had absolutely no intentions of getting saved or nething becuase i didnt even really believe in God! After that service everything changed-i dont need to get into all the details because im trying to make this short lol but i knew at that momnet that i was sinner apart from God and that i needed Him in my life! So on Febuary 22 2009 i got saved! Now the story doesnt end there.
I was wearing a wig and no one knew, of course some ppl could tell and they would ask questions but i would lie to cover it up. One day we had a Pastor come down from the states to do a revival. At the end of the service he asked if anyone wanted to get healed and to come to the front, now i was new to the church and no one knew about my aa so i decided not to go up but rather to cry out to God in my seat and ask to be healed. And God came through! I knew at that moment that God had healed me and i was crying with joy! Now there was no way to prove at that very moment that God had healed me because its not like my hair grew right at that very moment!
Within 3-4 months i was able to take off my wig and i got hair extensions-my hair was appox at my ears. When i had prayed for healing i was 80% bald and the hair i did hav was appox 1inch long. so about another 3-4 months after wearing my hair extentions i was able to take them off and my hair was fully grown in and down to my shoulders!! Praise God!!!!!
Since then i havent had any issues with hair loss!!!
Despite what the doctors had told me God healed me!
I dont doubt for a moment that it was God who had healed me!!
and you know everyone in this group is a Christian, just as God healed me fully and redeemed me from my life of sin, He is able to do that to you too!! the bible says that He heals all diseases, not just some!
dont treat Alopecia as a terminal disease God is able to heal us, we just have to have faith, not doubting His ability at alll!!!
I really look forward to hearing from you guys!!
Great Testimony Amy, God Bless You!
Praise the Lord! God is good! I pray that it happens for us all! Keep us updated.
Happy Holidays to all of my AA family
I know God heals but I had just about accepted my granddaughter's alopecia as His will. Your testimony has truly encouraged me. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for the testimony Amy, very encouraging :) God is able!
My dear child, your testimony was really inspiring! I'm a grandma with alopecia and I wear wigs. I've been praying for years for God to heal me, but my wigs are the next best thing! Whether He heals me or not, I'll still serve Him the best way that I can. He's healed me from other diseases and sicknesses in times past, so I'm well aware of His healing power. I do alot of church and charity work also to help others out with similar problems like mine. I volunteer for our local Cancer Services and am in charge of their wigs now. Have a blessed holiday season and may He continue to use you in a mighty way!
