The 700 Club

"Like Fireworks Going Off in My Brain"

Shannon Woodland - 700 Club Producer
Danielle Thompson - 700 Club Producer

Becky explains, “I would wake up in the morning and I could just feel that I was off.  Mainly with this eye I could feel a lot of tension, and a ton of pressure.  Lots of pressure.”

As a migraine sufferer for 16 years, Becky always knew when one was coming.

She continues, “All of a sudden it's like fireworks going off in my brain.  And just pain, and when the pain would go off in my brain, it would start traveling through my body.”

A busy wife and mother of two, she never took time to go to the doctor, using over-the-counter meds and aromatherapy with essential oils to manage the pain.    

She says, “The oils really helped a lot.  As long as I caught it in time, it wouldn't be as bad of a migraine.  I could deal with it.  But if I didn't get it in time, I had those just migraines where, uh, I couldn't do anything.”

Becky also prayed for relief.  Sometimes, prayer was the only thing that seemed to work.

She says, “I would pray a lot.  I would just ask Jesus to take this from me and to just help alleviate the symptoms, let me get through my day.  Help me to get through my day.  And a lot of the times, those prayers were answered.  But it just didn't stop.  It was hard.  And all I could say is, God got me through.  He would give me the strength and He would help me push through, even when I felt like I was just falling and drowning.” 

And the worst part of all was missing out on quality time with her husband and children.   

Becky shares, “I cried.  It's really all you can do.  Just ask God to heal you.  It really did take a lot.  I didn’t realize how much it took out of - away from my family.  It just stopped me in my tracks from being the most that I can be for my family, for God, for-for a lot of people.” 

The morning of July 27, 2018, Becky felt another migraine coming on.

She remembers, “I woke up and I just felt all that pressure. And I was like, ‘Oh, my goodness, this is just not gonna be a good day.’  It was already past the point to where uh even if I use my oils, it was going to turn into something worse.” 

Then, like most mornings, Becky says, “I turned on The 700 Club.  I was just watching and praying with other people.  And Terry called out to me.”   

On the show, Terry Meeuwsen prayed, “There’s someone else, you have these chronic migraines.  It’s not like it’s sinus-related or just allergies.  It’s like a band, and it goes all the way from the front of your head around to the back.  Then you’ll have it again the next day and the next day.  You just never seem to be free from it.  Today, Jesus Christ sets you free.  Lift up your hands and receive it.  You’ll not have it again.”

Becky says, “This is me!  I couldn't believe it.  And I just started crying.  I just started crying.  It just felt so wonderful.  I could feel the pain just subsiding and going away.  And-and it has not been back.  No migraines at all!  Thank you!  Thank you.  It – He's God.  God is good.”    

Finally, Becky could enjoy her life, and time with her family, with no pain!  

She says, “He took it all away.  And I just feel – I feel so blessed.  I feel honored to be healed.  Because now I can be with my family!”
