For a while now the Lord has been telling me to not take any medical tests. Below are the dreams, visions and words:
9/18/2018 (Dream) I was at a medical facility to have medical tests done along with my other family members. Right before I walked into the room to have the test performed, I heard the Holy Spirit break into the dream and say “DON’T DO IT.”
The woman in the room told me I would be drinking something. I told her no. Then before I could object, she jabbed a patch with little needles on it into my thigh. It must have been in the summer because I was wearing shorts and my legs were bare. I went to pay the bill and it was over $15,000.00. I was in shock at the price because I did not have medical insurance. End of dream.
11/23/2018 (Word) I heard the Holy Spirit say “NO BLOOD DRAWS, NO MEDICAL TESTS.”
8/13/2019 (Word) I heard the Holy Spirit say “NO BLOOD DRAWS OR TESTS”.
4/2/2020 (Vision) I saw two women, who were driving around testing people. They drove past a man, who was hiding in his own car. He crouched down in the seat to avoid being seen.
4/2/2020 (Dream) I was visiting my ex-husband at his house. Somehow it was reported that he was infected, because a cop came to the door wanting to test him.
Now when all these warning messages started, I had no idea why the Lord was giving them to me. After all, I have not been to a doctor in over five years, preferring to use homeopathic remedies and natural treatments for sickness whenever possible. It wasn’t until late last year that the reason became clear. That is when I suddenly started getting visions about not being able to see.
On 8/7/2020 I dreamed that I went to an employment agency to find a job for a homeless man. The woman who worked there had me fill out a form and take a test where you are given part of the word or sentence and asked to fill in the rest. Suddenly my vision clouded and I had a hard time seeing the sentences.
On 8/14/2020 I dreamed I was in a classroom sitting at my desk talking to someone. Suddenly I couldn’t see or open my eyes. Then it passed and I was able to open my eyes. Later that same night I dreamed I was outside working in my yard with a hoe in my hand. Then the neighbor walked over to my yard to talk to me. As he was talking, I suddenly could not see or open my eyes.
On 9/3/2020 I saw a vision of a woman hold up her glasses in her hand and wave them around.
It was that last vision that finally convinced me to go get my eyes checked. On the day of the eye appointment, the doctor said “Everything looks good, except you definitely have early stage cataracts and one eye is much worse than the other”. Whoa! I said, “But how can that be? I’m way too young.” He assured me that anyone over 40 could get them.
Okay so now this presented a huge dilemma for me. The usual treatment for cataracts is cataract surgery. And currently the CDC guidelines require PCR testing 3 days before surgery. Otherwise, they won’t do the surgery.
So this is where the rubber meets the road. Would I trust words of God and refuse the test, which meant no surgery? Or submit to the test in order to get the surgery?
Well like any of life’s problems, I knew the answer was in the Bible. Before long I found a passage that addressed my issue perfectly. It was in 2 Chronicles 16:12. Basically it is the story of King Asa and how he did what was good in the eyes of the Lord when he was younger. But when he was older, he stopped seeking the counsel of God and relied on the counsel of people. Asa became diseased in his feet and it was pretty severe. Then it says “yet in his disease he did not seek the Lord, but the physicians.”
So I’ve decided to trust in God and not man. No PCR test for me.
One day I was talking to my cousin, Brad (not his real name), about the cataract diagnosis. He responded by telling me about his father, my uncle, who had cataract surgery to fix his cataracts. Then I told him that I wouldn’t be doing that. I was going to trust in the Lord for my healing.
Then I told him about the time when I went almost entirely deaf for 40 plus days and how the Lord healed my ear. I told him that this cataract diagnosis was pretty much the same sort of thing. All I needed to do was stand on the promises of God for my healing and He would do it.
Honestly the whole cataract thing did not faze me all that much. It’s just another “giant” trying to scare me and get me off track. I am truly grateful for my times of testing with the all the other “giants” in my life. Hey, when you’ve tackled “the lion and the bear”, what’s one more? It’s just like when David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”
2 CHRONICLES 16:7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the LORD your God, therefore has the army of the king of Syria escaped out of your hand.
2 CHRONICLES 16:12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease became severe: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.
PROVERBS 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
JEREMIAH 17:7 Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when the heat comes, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be anxious in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
ISAIAH 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, says the LORD, that take counsel, but not from me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: 2That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked my counsel; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! 3Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your humiliation.
SONG OF SOLOMON 8:5 Who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
1 SAMUEL 17:33 And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”34But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”

The Lord began drawing Dana to Him about six months before she was saved. By January of 2015, the urgency to make a decision about God was so strong, that it was all she could think about, but she was clueless how to even get saved. One day in her bedroom, she cried out to God telling him she really wanted to be saved, but she didn’t know how. Then she had the thought, maybe she could Google it. And that’s what she did. She found instructions on the Internet and said the Salvation prayer out loud.
In 2017 the Lord led her 600 miles away from her family, friends and home to a place she had never been and did not want to go – Missouri. Then in April of 2019 the Lord gave her a vision of a woman sitting at a desk, writing on paper. That’s when she knew He wanted her to write, but what on earth could she possibly write about? Then in July of 2020 the Lord gave her a vision of an eyebrow pencil outlining a woman’s eye. She interpreted that to mean “I OUTLINE”. And that is exactly what He did. And that’s how the Lord got her to pick up her pen.
