Healing of Tourette's Testimony: A Progessive Journey

This story, which you can link to right here, is one of my favorites where a progressive healing is concerned. The testimony highlights a father who, though he had every reason to grow bitter, chose to keep seeking out the truth regarding God's ability to heal. As a result, he never gave up praying for his daughter's healing (Luke 18:1) which she ultimately received. 

This testimony mentions something I just wrote about the other day. A prayer minister commanded Tourette's to leave. As most of you probably know, or at least I hope you do, this syndrome is strictly neurological, so such a command is useless in this case, and the child was negatively affected by that prayer as was the whole family because her lack of healing after ministry tremendously disappointed them. 

On the other hand, reflecting on this issue of speaking commands, although Jesus didn't order a sickness to leave (he ordered demons to leave), he did order parts of the body to work when they previously did not. 

There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him. After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue. He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Ephphatha!" (which means "Be opened!'). At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.  ~Mark 7:32-35

My hat is off to Andrew Womack Ministries for sharing this story. This family did not have a positive experience when they went to them for prayer, and although this could been concealed in the testimony, it wasn't. Also, I am happy that they shared the story of a progressive healing rather than an instant one. While those types of testimonies are always exciting and encouraging to hear, for most of us, the journey to healing takes a bit longer and requires perseverance.
