The Healing Testimony Of: Charis Plumley  "His Promises Never Fail"

"Thank You Lord"
Lisa Holden

I am a 73 year old woman, my husband and I just celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary in 2003. We have 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. I was born again or saved at the age of 9, but in my teen age years did not always remain true to the Lord, but I know He never left me, neither did He forsake me. Shortly after we were married both my husband (who also chose the world's ways for a time) and I rededicated our lives to the Lord and have tried all these years to walk faithfully with Him.

We were very active in our evangelical church for many years, but in the 1960's we became hungry for more of God. As a result of this hunger, we received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and I also saw that healing was in the atonement and for us today. In addition to the Bible, one of the first books I read which had a dynamic influence of me was "Healing The Sick" by T.L.Osborn.

I read that book through many, many times. I would listen to healing messages on our cassette players in the car and in the house. I would use ear phones to listen at night when I was awake so I wouldn't disturb my husband. I thank God that I did, because this knowledge went down into my spirit and built my faith, and would prove life saving in my latter years.

Through the years I had taught children's classes, played the piano and led praise and worship. In 1984, I began teaching a women's Bible study where we saw many lives changed for the Glory of God.

It was in 1988 when I began experiencing severe pain in my lower abdomen. I was confessing the Word, listening to tapes etc. but one night I knew it was time to go to the hospital. They ran many tests and confirmed the presence of a large ovarian cyst. I had that removed, and the tests showed there was no cancer.

In 1989, just one year later, I began experiencing extreme fatigue and some other problems. I stood strong in faith and I cast down imaginations and would quote the Word of God. When fear would try to come, I would just praise God that He had not given me a spirit of fear, but one of power and of love and of a sound mind!(2 Tim. 1:7)

On January l0th, 1990 I began passing large blood clots and went to the Dr. where tests determined that cancer was present. On January 24th I had a complete hysterectomy and the surgeon's first words to me upon entering my room the next morning were, "It's bad, it's really bad!"

I didn't ask him any questions as I knew this was a critical moment and that I needed to watch what I said and to be careful of what I heard. He told me he would let me go home for one week and then start radiation for 5 days a week, for a duration of 6 weeks. He sent someone up to me from the Oncology Dept. with a lot of material to read. I never read it. I told my husband when he came, to throw it all away at home. Proverbs 4 tells us we need to guard our heart for out of it flow the issues of life, and I didn't need to read that which would cause fear, doubt and unbelief.

When I got out of the hospital, I called and cancelled my treatments. I had been home for about one week when I got very ill. I was so nauseated and I kept vomitting. When that would subside, severe pain would attack me in the stomach area. After several hours of this, my husband called my surgeon and he had me come immediately to the ER at the hospital.

While lying there waiting for the doctor to come, I looked at the clock and said to myself, "It is 11 o'clock and I am not sick anymore." Upon examining me, the doctor was unable to find anything wrong and sent me home in two days. In talking to a friend after I got home, she told me she had been burdened to pray for me when I went in, and at 11o'clock the Lord spoke to her heart that she could quit praying for me, all was well.

When I went back for my six week checkup, he saw I had cancelled all of my treatments. He told me he didn't want me to think him unkind, but with or without the radiation I didn't have long to live. I told him I was believing God for His healing miracle. I have not been back to him since.

In l995 I experienced some strange attacks of pain which would come and go in the pancreas area. Again, I read scriptures on fear and confessed His Word, not what I felt. The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart one night that the devil was trying to put cancer back on me and He asked me what was I going to do about it? My spirit rose up and said, "The devil can't do that because God made an utter end to that affliction and it cannot arise a second time." Nahum 1:9. So, the enemy was once again defeated by the Word of God.

Today, I enjoy good health, keep busy teaching and serving the Lord wherever I can. I would encourage anyone reading this to do as the wise man in the Bible and get firmly established on the Word of God, being not double minded. And when the storms come, as they do to the saved and the unsaved, your house will stand!

It is 13 &1/2 years later and I never tire of praising Him for Who He Is and What He Does. I know for a fact that Jesus is our Healer!
