Exchanging My Wig for My Healing
This blog was written by Charis student, Allyson Rola from Charis Bible College Charlotte.
At nine-years old, I suddenly found myself in our family’s upstairs bathroom, shaving my head.
I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis, a rare disease that leaves you completely bald. As my hair began to fall out rapidly, I had to shave what remained to be fitted for a wig.
I put that wig on and hardly ever took it off; it held me captive. I had no idea how the Lord would heal me, but I would dream of waking up in the morning, completely healed, with a full head of hair and as the girl in Matthew 9, who simply touched the edge of Jesus’ garment and was instantly healed.
Eleven years later, I told my best friend, “If God hasn’t healed me by now, then He’s not even real!” Obviously, I didn’t mean that, but something had to change. Either Jesus is who He says He is or He’s not. I surrendered everything to Christ and took the wig off. The world saw me bald. This was huge experience that is difficult to put into words—I was free.
Looking for answers, I was introduced to Andrew Wommack’s ministry.
I listened to hours of his sermons. It was as if I could see for the first time!
Rather than begging God to heal me, I simply thanked Him for what He already accomplished for me on the cross.
Still bald, I began to thank Him for my hair.
I took Psalms 103:1-3, “He heals all of my diseases,” as my own. I commanded my mountain to move and my hair to grow!
After almost 15 years of struggling with this disease, I was completely healed with a full head of hair.
I quit my job and moved to attend Charis Bible College Charlotte. My grandfather and I are now going to Charis together!
It was such a simple but life-changing message; we don’t need to get God to heal us, we just need to receive what He’s already done.
