God gave us homemade cough syrup!

God amazes me. Obviously in more ways than one, but how magnificent are you when you create plants that contain their own healing mechanisms?
I first got this cough mixture remedy from my old Manager, and when I saw it contained cloves I never thought anything of it other than expressing a dubious look. That was until I realised that cloves contain Eugenol, which makes it a natural anaesthetic and contains antibacterial properties that fight off bacteria and promote healing! God is amazing!

The whole family caught flu last week and I whipped up a batch of this stuff. I like to give it to Jordan because it’s safe, sweet and can even come as an ice lolly! Her favourite!
This syrup tastes great and you can actually feel the back of your throat go slightly numb after you swallow it! Excellent for sore throats!

You need:

  • one package of whole cloves
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup sugar

Boil all the ingredients in a pot for a few minutes until the liquid reduces to one cup (I realised that placing a wooden spoon over your pot while prevent it from boiling over really does work!)
Strain the cloves and store the mixture in a sterilized jar in the fridge.


To turn them into ice lollies to soothe sore throats, just place about a teaspoon of clove mixture into each ice cube holder and fill it with cooldrink or juice of choice. I used Creme Soda in this instance

Just before they are completely set, but soft enough, pop lolly sticks into each ice cube and place them back into the freezer until fully set.


Teeny’s Swollen lip – another healing testimony!

My poor kitty cat just couldn’t seem to cut a break! Just as I started praying for his snuffles and wounds, his lip swelled up, raw and protruding, out of nowhere! There was no injury to his lip and it just seemed to get bigger and bigger. Medication from the vet never helped. I could see that it was quite painful for him to eat.

So I decided to consistently pray for healing over his lip, just as I did with his neck. The healing over his lip took a little longer, but it was gone within 3 months!

Here are pictures of it when I started praying in April (6th, 7th and 12th respectively):

How God healed my kitty- what vets couldn’t do!

Healing is a strange thing, and I have to admit – I don’t get it. I really don’t. I find it all complicated. One person may spend hours upon hours and months upon months praying for healing and they never get it; yet another person can ask once and they are healed instantly. So it’s the one area I battle with.

But! I have two testimonies I would like to share with you, and they are of the more fluffy variety – my kitty cat, Teeny.

Teeny was born with snuffles, which is another name for Feline Upper Respiratory Tract Disease. It’s a disease that affects felines in their eyes, nose and mouth, and of course respiratory area. There is no cure. Many cats don’t make it. When I got Teeny, he would sneeze and his tiny little eyes would clog up so badly with mucous. He was constantly at the vet for medication and treatment.

As Teeny got older, the sneezing got worse and he resorted to scratching himself all over. If he came into contact with any sort of stress then it was really bad. At times he would sneeze blood.
In 2010 his scratching was terrible – he had scratched a huge hole into his neck that just got bigger, even when he wasn’t scratching. The vet gave him a shot as well as medication I needed to dab onto the affected area as much as I needed to. But nothing helped. Sometimes he would walk and blood would drip from the wound! Big patches of fur were missing from his neck, front and back. This carried on for a just over a year and no amount of medication was helping.

Eventually I had had enough. Teeny had eventually shied away from me because I was always coming to him with cotton wool and red liquid! I am the child of the Most High God and here I was struggling with a disease that was placed under Jesus’ feet a long time ago!
One of my favourite Bible verses is Romans 4:17 As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead, and calls those things which are not as though they were”. Here, the Lord changed Abram’s name to Abraham one year before the birth of Isaac, thus confessing that Abraham was the father of a multitude before it happened in the physical.
I find this a beautiful powerful promise to the children of God. Our Bible starts with “calling things” into existence. God called forth light and the light came. He spoke creation into existence, and here we are.

The tongue is a powerfully scary little muscle. I never really took James 3:6 seriously enough until I went through this process. The verse says, “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.” If our tongue is that powerful by the words it spews out, what are we calling into existence then? Scary thought!
The whole of creation was made by and responds to words. Our words, when spoken in faith, release either life or death (Proverbs 18:21) and will affect people, things, circumstances, and yes, our pets!


God gave us dominion over creation and I take that very seriously! I’m currently waging war in prayer for our rhino! I wholeheartedly believe that we release power by the words we speak. So, I decided to stop his medication and first took authority over his illness and commanded it to go in Jesus’ name. Every day, every time I would walk past him, I would thank God for Teeny’s healing in Jesus’ name and for what He accomplished on the cross. I would walk up to Teeny and say “Hello Teeny, Jesus loves our little Teeny and has healed you! We thank You Jesus for Teeny’s healing and that this wound will soon be gone all because of You!” Something like that, every day. Proclaiming Jesus’ truth and declaring, and most of all, thanking! I will never expect to see healing without thanking. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” It is God’s will that we thank Him for everything He has done and is about to do! Always be thankful, I cannot stress that enough!

I also like to pray using scripture a lot. The Word is living and powerful (Hebrews 4:12) and can only fuel your prayers! So, I would also say over Teeny, “Thank You Father for Teeny’s healing! Thank You that You are able to do exceedingly abundantly above all I ask or think for Teeny’s healing, in Jesus’ name” (Eph 3:20)

Teeny’s wound was entirely gone within 4 weeks! After a year and a half of struggling with medication and treatment!


During the whole thing, I never once doubted. It was almost like “Duh! Why didn’t I think of that! Oh well, let’s get this done!” Remember James 1:6-8 “But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does”. Don’t doubt – God has given us this power, so use your God-given authority!

Focus on the good that you want to see, and do not look at what is right in front of you. It shakes your faith. I focused on seeing Teeny healed, not at the huge bleeding sore that looked straight back at me. It was just a temporary wound – temporary because Jesus says it is!
When my daughter was in NICU, the paediatric nurse that was assigned to her was saved and I thank God for her. She became my mentor and she is a wonderful woman of God. One day she came to me and said, “God asked me to give you this verse.” And she handed me a handwritten verse of 2 Corinthians 4:18: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 

Teeny no longer scratches or sneezes today, and is wound free! All glory be to God! Who was, and is, and is to come!

Healed! Just in time to attack the carpet!

Fasting and prayer brings healing to toddler

There was an 18 month old baby in Johannesburg, South Africa in April 2010 that was beaten up to the point of unconsciousness when their home was broken into. She was home alone with the nanny and 3 men beat both her and the nanny up.

From the onset this story struck me hard and to this day I believe the Holy Spirit had nudged me to get involved to pray and fast for this child.

I was truly devastated by this story. I cried for hours and I just could not wrap my mind around the horror of it. I prayed hard for her, and often. Many times the Lord would wake me up at midnight or 2am and tell me to pray for her and her parents. He would tell me to pray at work, in the traffic, while cooking, etc. I also encouraged my Bible study group to pray for her daily. I would know when my prayer session would be over because a feeling of peace would come over me.

One night God sent me a dream.  I was in a church and a lady dressed in white (I couldn’t see her face) asked me to sing. I started singing and these angels appeared all around the church, large, and dressed in pure white. They produced the most divine music I have ever heard, nothing like you hear on earth! I can’t describe it but it was so angelic.

My spirit could sense that the music was glorifying God for something He had done. When I woke up, I just KNEW it was for this baby! The next day I heard that she was taken off the ventilator and improving! Praise Jesus!

After that she was improving tremendously but my prayers never stopped.

However, a few weeks later, it was let known to the country on the news that this child was blind from the attack! Again – devastation! I burst out crying at my desk at work. But I had this supernatural faith the Holy Spirit had placed in me that she was going to be fine. He urged me to fast for her.

I had then called a fast with every saved Christian I knew and urged them to get their churches involved. By the time the fast started on the first day, I had calculated that between 400-500 people were joining me in this fast for her eyesight to return! The fast was for 3 days.

One morning during the fast I woke up and the Lord gave me a vision – I saw a man from the side sitting against a wall. I looked at his eyes and they were white, that white that covers a blind person’s eyes and I heard this voice that said “Watch – these are [baby] X’s (name can’t be mentioned) eyes.” And this man blinked and as his eyes opened again they were this awful, dark, evil black and their shape was that of a reptile’s! I immediately discerned that her blindness was due to the attack – which was an attack of hate. 1 John 3:15 says “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer”. God equates hatred with murder and all attacks of hatred have demons involved – this was a demonic affliction! That is then what the fast focused on – ridding the demons from her eyes that were causing demonic blindness.

About a month after the fast we heard news from their doctor that this child was regaining her eyesight!!
Today, she has her eyesight restored completely!

Again, Jesus was victorious and I was so honoured that He chose me to see this through! the one thing that stood out for me during this trial was that you have to be obedient to the Holy Spirit’s nudging. Yes, even to pray at 3 in the morning! If you ignore it, it can result in dire consequences.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
