Ariella Jernigan Healed from Anxiety
A little over a month ago, my husband and I were robbed At the restaurant I work at by gunpoint. Because of the trauma of the event I had been absolutely crippled with fear and anxiety. I’d never struggled with anxiety before. I was sleeping about an hour a night for 2 weeks, having panic attackss often and a mind that was constantly reeling with thoughts of potential disaster and attack that could attack me and my family. I also couldn’t stop shaking every time I would go back to work. I was convinced I needed anxiety medication and would get no relieve without it. I called 3 different doctors and none of them were taking new patients. Multiple doors for help being slammed in my face. Then 1 week ago I was talking with the father in my car on my way to work. I felt him ask me “do you believe that I could heal your anxiety without medication?” I immediately began to weep and realised I didn’t Believe it. I didn’t feel scolded, I felt invited into a new way of thinking. I began to verbally repent for not believing in God as my healer. As I did, I felt something dark and heavy physically leave my car and I had to pull over. I felt something got pulled out of my chest. I felt the presence of the Father replace it and cover me in peace. I was able to take deep breaths which I wasn’t able to do for weeks before that. A few days later I was on my way to lead worship at a women’s conference and I felt the Father playfully say to me “hey do you remember the anxiety you had a few days ago?” I hadn’t even realised my anxiety was completely gone!!! There was so much peace I can’t even explain it in words. I haven’t had any anxiety whatsoever since then!
