I don’t know where to start from but I’ll start from somewhere… IN 2018, I had had a smooth journey from January to almost the end of the year. 2018 was indeed a great year, it was the year I graduated from the university
, wrote my first thesis, travelled outta Nigeria
and so on. So, you see, things were getting on fine 😁😁. Then, I got my admission into the Nigerian Law School which would warrant me conducting a lot of test, medical test inclusive that will aid my registration in school.
So, around November (12th or somewhat) I went to conduct my test as required by the NLS. I got my result and that was where it all started. I saw it there written boldly “HCV-POSITIVE”, I was not bothered as I didn’t know what it was about, the doctor saw it and said, why is yours positive?😠 then turned to my colleague seated beside me, what is your result? She said negative,😦 okay, there and then, I knew something is amiss🚫. She counseled me as to what to eat and to treat it without telling me what I’d treat it with. Then, I went home. I got home, told my mum what I came back with, she said okay cos she doesn’t know what HCV is too. We called an acquaintance at the hospital, she told me to come the next day (I haven’t researched here and still thought it isn’t anything bad). I went to the hospital, met with her, she prescribed my drugs and said to come back in 3 months for a checkup.
I decided to make a research as to what HCV is exactly, I found out, that it is Hepatitis C virus, a liver disease caused by the virus and it can result in both acute and chronic hepatitis which may lead to a serious lifelong illness. Research made me know that, if chronically infected, it will develop into cirrhosis and liver cancer which is mostly incurable. Plus, it gives no indications (symptoms) of the condition a person is.
My testimony however is on the basis that God allows things for a reason. If law school had not requested for a medical test, I would not have conducted one. If I had not conducted one, I would not have known that I’m with HCV and I would not have been able to treat it. For the rest of 2018, I continued using my medications even though inconsistently, cos I was in doubt still if I actually had the disease. I stopped eating some foods and started feeding mainly on fruits and veggies. I kept praying too🙏. My parents and confidant were also praying for me and making sure I was using my medications.
Then the end of the year came. We went to crossover night in church on the 31st, I prayed and told God that among the things I wish Him do for me is take away this illness from me, that I don’t want to continue saddling with me drugs everywhere I go. Note: I had faith that God can heal me without medications but I felt I had no time for the consecration it’ll require and I was scared on the other hand cos I do not want to be mourned over as a result of my carelessness.
Fast forward to today. I decided to conduct my test before going back to school. I got to the hospital, my blood sample was taken and phew! The test was conducted. My acquaintance who conducted it was somewhat confused and had to conduct like thrice, facing the woman in purdah that prescribed the drugs to me telling her what the results are… I was given my results which boldly inscribed was HCV-NEGATIVE!
God did for me a great miracle. What would normally be described to people as passed a curable stage, what therapy sessions would take over, and such therapies are usually painful than the illness itself, God did for me on a platter of gold. He showed me in time and healed me in due season!
This is a sign that 2019 will be a great year, with blessings undiluted, favor unending, joy overflow, grace unlimited.
Praise God with me.
I AM GRACE PERSONIFIED!!!
