“From the time I was a young child of 5 or 6 years, my heart was drawn to the Lord. I knew I wanted to serve Him, and as I got into my teen years, I rededicated my life to Him. However, there always seemed to be something lacking and I had a hard time concentrating on the Word. The joy of my salvation seemed to be lacking.
In my middle years, I began to be harassed by unclean thoughts and soon I was very depressed, wanting out of this life. I threw myself into collecting “things” of this world, and I got so overloaded with “things” that I began to hate them. I then went into the antique business but eventually had a severe breakdown in my life. I couldn’t handle anything and ended up in the mental hospital for a week. I even thought I’d lost my salvation. I wandered around for 3 months – couldn’t cook, clean house, etc. I yearned for the peace of The Lord. I cried to the Lord constantly.
One day my sister told me about Isaiah 61. My husband, son and I went to the meeting and felt the presence of God. Through the Group Deliverances, God has delivered me of many things. He will deliver me of more when I go through individual deliverance.
He has released me from the bondage of compulsive buying and I no longer have the harassment in my dreams that I’d had for so long. I can now read The Word of God and He is showing me different gifts that I can use for Him. The Joy of my Salvation is now mine and real. I have been healed in so many areas. Our Lord Jesus Christ has given us the Victory!
