A person who needs to be healed, is in sometimes desperate thoughts and actions. They dwell on what the doctor says, or what the media says, but they don't seek the Word of God. In the Bible, God did many healings, deliverances, and all-around miracles. He made the lame walk, the dumb talk, and He opened blinded eyes. He brought the dead to life, and delivered many from demonic powers. PRAISE THE LORD! But those things can still happen today... God is still in the miracle business! Don't ever think your problem, or your doctor's diagnosis is bigger than God! God says in His Word that He is the God that heals us. (paraphrased into plain English) I for one can speak from experience.
For those of you who don't know me, or know what has gone on in the past month (and in 2 times previous) I had been diagnosed with FACIAL CELLULITIS. It is a painful bacterial infection that flares up on the face. (Cellulitis iteself can flare up anywhere on the body, usually for adults it comes on the legs or the arms). The first time I got this bacterial infection, I was told by the doctor that it is a low percentage of people in the world that contract this infection, and an even lower percentage of people that it will reoccur with, so I wasn't to worry about it coming back. (Kind of like Chicken Pox, you may get it, but you usually only get it once) I was hospitalized, and put on IV antibiotics, and taken care of, and within a week I was sent home, and it healed. (Through antibiotics and prayer of course). However, five years later, it began to flare it's ugly self up again, and attack my face, and I was again hospitalized and put on IV antibiotics. (The medical staff and some of the University students used my infection for their medical studies, and a medical journal as they had never really dealt with Cellulitis before, and it shouldn't have re-occured.) Again, through lots of prayer by my family, my church, and others I was healed thoroughly, and went on living life normal again. Thinking it will never return again, I put it behind me, and prayed against the infection returning. However, again about five years later (which would put it to 2009), I contracted the Facial Cellulitis again! I was preparing for a "TWEENS" conference that I was a part of, and knew that I had to do stuff, and help get organized for the tweens that were coming to seek more of God. That is my heart, so I prayed, and didn't let the Cellulitis bother me. We went to the hospital, and I self-diagnosed that it was facial cellulitis, whereas the doctors and nurses on staff were thinking it was an allergic reaction or something. Once I told the doctor that I knew it was facial cellulitis, because I have had it twice before, he checked out the signs and symptoms, and diagnosed me with facial cellulitis. I was given IV antibiotics, and oral pills as well, and I returned to the church to be a part of the Conference. I had to return to the hospital the next three mornings for an IV dose. (As they now have a Cellulitis Clinic set up --- gee I wonder if I may have had a part in that.) Again, through much prayer I was healed. However, again just the end of April, I had a flare-up again on my nose, and I prayed against it, and used God's Word to curse the infection, and went to the hospital yet again, and was diagnosed again for the 4th time with Facial Cellulitis. The medical staff still cannot determine what is causing the flare-ups, and cannot determine why it is re-occuring. According to their study of Cellulitis, it happens most in those that are Homeless, live in a Shelter, or have poor living conditions. According to the internet, facial cellulitis happens mos to Children or Men over the age of 45. Neither one of these findings helps me out... I am neither a child, or a man, and I do not, nor never have lived in a shelter or on the street. We are believing in prayer that "NOTHING EVIL SHALL COME NIGH MY DWELLING PLACE" (Psalms 91:10) We are praying against the root cause of this infectious disease, and declaring that I am healed, I am whole, and I am restored in the name of JESUS! AMEN & AMEN!

For those of you who may not be believers in the HEALING POWER of God... try it for yourself. Look at your situation or circumstance (just briefly of course), call it out by it's name, and claim the following scriptures over your life. Do this for a month... and see what happens. If you do, and you would like to give a testimony, please comment as I would love to read how God is working in your lives. If you do this, and nothing changes, then you have not lost a thing. However, I know that my God can do anything, and through Him I can do anything by His strength! (Philippians 4:13)

Psalm 91
Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God

1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a] And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. 14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.” (New King James Version - The Holy Bible)

I wasn't looking for anything like this on the internet today. I was trying to look up symptoms of cellulitis of the face today. And I came across your site. And I am so glad I did I believe with god all things are possible. I know that god sent me to your site so that I may hear his word and be at peace.

about 2 moths ago (in July) i woke up with my right cheek red swollen and very hot to the touch. i went to the ER and the doctor said I had a salivary stone in my face and told me to go home and take some antibiotics and suck on sour candy and the stone should pass. confused by this diagnoses i went to my primary care doctor about 1 hour later. he said it was a sinus infection that spread into my cheek (although i wasn't having any sinus problems at that time) he gave me an antibiotic shot and gave me some amoxilcellin to take my mouth. 3 days later nothing has changed so i went back to the ER and a different doctor said i had cellulitis of the face and gave my a different antibiotic through IV. he said if the IV didn't help by the next morning i should see an internal medicine doctor.

so the next day still nothing changed at this point i was freaking out and super scared. i went to the internal medicine doctor and she put me on a 7 day dose of leavaquin and the heat and redness did go away after about 3 days of taking that. but the swelling still stayed. about 3 months has past and some of the swelling in my right cheek is still there. so have just ignored it until last night my face turned red and hot all over again. i dont know if it it cellulitis or something else. I will not go to the ER now because of the swine flu outbreak and the ER is full of people coming down with it. So I am going to be strong have faith in god and continue to read your site for strength. If you could pray for me I would be so happy. I do believe that prayer is very powerful.

Thanks so much God bless!

Thank you for your blog- I have been recently dealing with a mysterious breakout on my face and other parts and your image is the closest I have found to what my face looks like. I do believe that prayer and faith and affirmations can help and heal and I just wanted to say I am glad I came across your blog. I believe I have (subconciously) had a kind of struggle with my spirituality in a sense that I believe in God but I realize I am not doing my best to live as the example I want to be for others- but I certainly DO want and INTEND to. I believe that once I truly open up and release any hidden 'demons' or supressed feelings I can truly live up to what I was meant to be- an inspiration and good example for many others to come. God Bless you and thank you again.

With Love,
Kola Hes
