Faith Can Move Mountains

  • Faith Can Move Mountains

    For me, this is exactly what happened. Matthew 17:20 “Faith can move mountains.” I went from the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania to the Smokey Mountains, Tennessee. I was lost, then found, I was down every rabbit hole and toxic behavior you can think of think. When things got so bad, I was being tormented by ever demon I picked up on the way. Literally. I began to see demons in faces of people in the streets. There was a time I did not know if I was one or shown by discernment but one thing I did know I was “Not in Kansas Anymore..” ( Wizard of Oz reference). The anxiety was so horrific. I felt as if someone was touching my hair all the time. Twitching, flinching, PTSD, tics and my mind played tricks on me 24 hours a day. There surely was no rest for the wicked. What I was doing was wicked, What I spoke was wicked plots, my behavior was wicked and out of control. I was aware and under deception at the same time. It was right before covid hit in November 2019. I had a day like no other , blissfully happy. Until the Lord was ready to show me everything. Literally, on camera. Well, down I went. Dark Night of Soul and all. You want to talk about surreal. Well, during this time, I was actually floating through my days. Felt like I was not existing inside my body. I actually was diagnosed at the time having “Transient Alteration of Awareness.” – meaning is a condition that comes and goes (Transient) where the patient has a change (Alteration) of there level of consciousness according to medicalexpert.com. It was dark, it was cold and little did I know during this time that the enemy was after me and if I didn’t fight for my life, family and my spirit it would have been over, All of it.

    So, how does God work….well, He uses people. He sends messengers and angels to send you “life ropes”. “Life ropes” as in words, scriptures, phone calls, reminders of what’s important and these all will be moments that will remind you what is worth fighting for and what is not. I began to get the phone calls, I found an old Bible in my house, I received confirmations, I prayed in my boiler room, I cried, I declared the Blood of Jesus over my home. The convictions became so real. Once the Lord had my ear, I was full speed ahead. Jesus told me when to move, when to be still, when to run and when to wait. I rented a 20 yard dumpster and through all my toxic habits out. Witchcraft, feathers and stones and crystals and black and red candles and more. I felt more love and conviction from the Holy Spirit then I did my whole life. Why because HE knew I was ready. I was ready to surrender. The Lord, well, He was crosses the oceans so I wouldn’t drown. Even though I felt like I was. I was restless all night, I woke up with fight or flight. My family was scared. I began to see so clear and I was filled with the Holy Spirit fire to burn down all evil and wickedness in my home with the power and authority of Christ.

    Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

    Acts 2:38

    I was ready to declare the Lord over my home one morning and before I could even walk into the house from outside, I watched the demon LITERALLY fly over the mountain from above my house. But that is another story. There was nothing that could stop me with the Holy Spirit. Oh do not get me wrong, the aftermath still resurfaces at times but not like it was. What does that mean?

    We made choices in our past. It takes, healing, it takes work, it takes a new mind set..

    Colossians 3:2-3 “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”

    Yes, there may be reminders BUT we need not pay attention to them. The enemy knows we belong to Christ and it pisses him off in plain English. He still “aTEMPTS” BUT, once you walk with Christ and realize everything you can ever need is in Him, the enemy will flee. Instead of being tortured from my past. These days the memory make me smile as I say thank you Lord to every moment He showed me that he is the one and only Savior I ever needed then and now and for all eternity. And for this, I will always preach the Gospel. Jesus saved my life.

    John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    Thank you Lord for saving me. Lastly, some do not believe in signs from the Lord, I am not one of those people. I believe in angels and signs and tests from the Lord. My faith favorite scripture verse is found in Hebrews 11:1. “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see.” It was 111 that the Lord showed me as I was guided through every step of my journey out of darkness. From motel rooms to receipt sales to times of my thoughts that confirmed everything I was doing was on the right way to the “promise land”. And for me, at this point of my journey to heaven it was the Smokey Mountains is one of those stops for me. Every one has their own journey, where they were, where they are going, what is real to them and their perception during and afterwards. Thank you for reading just a glimpse of my story. If the Lord saved me I have full FAITH that He can save you to. God Bless you all.
