Angels on assignment

18 Jul

Stories to Inspire

Most of us believe in angels.  It’s likely that many of us believe that angels attend to us.   But most of us have very little understanding of angels and much less interaction with angels.  What would it do for you to ‘see’ your angels actively engaged in their assignments over your home and over you?  Would that inspire you?  Would you feel more protected, secure and emboldened in your life and family?  I think the answer is unquestionably, “Yes!”

That’s what happened to a couple of our friends.  Without any preconceived expectation, they saw something which gave them a great deal of faith to believe that they were receiving the supernatural help from angels on patrol, protecting their home.

I think you’ll like this simple but impacting story from Tyler and Crystal.

Angels on assignment

“A few weeks ago, our neighbor drove by and said that they “saw our cat entertaining a family of raccoons” in our front yard.  That neighbor called and suggested that we view it on our security cameras.  We accessed the camera memory and found something very different. 

We never did see the cat and raccoons, but were surprised to see this wispy ‘figure’ move across our yard just in front of our porch, as if it was an angel on patrol.  Very encouraging and inspiring!

A few days ago, without any prompting, our daughter said that she saw an angel in our back yard and said it was very similar to what was on our cameras a few weeks ago.

Thank God, the Heavenly realms are becoming so much more real, these days!” – TS/MO

And I will manifest Myself to him

How many times have you discovered a phrase tucked away inside a verse that you know so well?  It was like the Light of Heaven shone on it in a brand-new way, revealing a brand new rhema.  And when that rhema bursts alive, you find that it is easy to embrace or walk in the reality of that new insight. 

That’s the power of Revelation.  When revelation comes, it also brings the permission and empowerment to walk in the reality of that revelation.  This is so clear in Col 3:4.

“When Christ, who is our life, appears, we shall appear with Him in glory.” – Col 3:4

Let me elaborate on that verse, like this:

As often as Jesus appears to you and in whatever way He appears to you, He brings with Him the permission and empowerment for you to manifest in that same glory that He just manifested.” – Mark’s Expanded Version

O boy!!!  So Julie found a little phrase tucked away in a familiar verse.  There it was.  Had it been hiding in there all this time?  Of course it had.   Evidently God thought it was time to take the next step.

And so she did.  She engaged with the living Word of God.  You’ll like her story.  And you’ll want to try it.  That’s the power of testimonies.

And I will manifest Myself to him

Yesterday morning, my husband Jeff and I were talking about John 14:21, which says,

“And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” 

Jesus manifest

After Jeff went to work, I remained in the living room, sitting in one of the fireplace chairs, pondering this verse that seems to promise us that if we love Jesus He will personally appear to us.  What an amazing promise! 

So I closed my eyes and said to the Lord, “I love you, Lord, please manifest Yourself to me.”  Then when I opened my eyes and looked at our couch, this is what I saw! 

On the velour blanket, there was an image of Jesus‘ hand… and His arm up to His shoulder… and the sleeve of His robe.  Do you see it? And can you see the nail print on His hand?

What an amazing God we have!  So faithful and true to His promises!

So the next morning, guess where I had my quiet time?… in that very place, in His arms! – JE/KS

Reconciler is on the job!

Stories to Inspire

Our Heavenly ‘family’ is getting more real, more relevant and more practical all the time.  What a gift from our most loving Father!

People ask frequently, “So how does this change your life?”

And that’s a great question.  I’d want to know, also.  For starters, when a person’s heart gets tenderized and their mindset about Heavenly realities gets upgraded, that a real blessing, right!?!?   But when our circumstances are being radically effected for the good, that becomes the ‘icing on the cake’.

A friend of mine is experiencing some very real life changing benefits from partnering with her angels… which is just one category of Heaven’s many resources to the saints.

What would you think if this was your family?  Would you be happy?  You betcha!

Due to the personal nature of this story the names have been withheld or changed.

Reconciler is on the job!

My family has been disconnected for the past 5 years, which was when a disastrous Christmas resulted in disconnection of relationships and family members taking sides.  It was heart breaking for this Mama to watch it unfold.  But God has been faithful to grow my faith and equip me with faith-tools to bring breakthrough and reconciliation in my family.

So, I met a new angel named Reconciler, about a month ago.  It has been really fun to partner with Reconciler in assignments for my family.  Since I’ve met and partnered with him, here are a few wonderful developments with my adult children and their families.

1. My son called to tell me of a dream he had about 2 weeks ago.  In the dream his sister came to visit and met her niece and nephew she had never met.  My son woke feeling hopeful, peaceful and encouraged about the possibility of reconciliation!!   Woot! Woot!

2. Another son called and wanted to let me know they would like to come visit.  (We haven’t seen them since last summer.  They have chosen to not be together because of covid.)  While here, some very painful situations from 20 years ago were brought up in a conversation – blaming me.  The Lord gave me grace to stay ‘present’ and listen.  The result was that my son said, “Mom, I don’t think I have ever said this, but I want to celebrate you for taking the courage to leave Dad.”  That was a 180 from where the conversation had started.

3. More family was here last weekend.  We had a delightful time.  I asked my son for a private meeting in my office and God gave me grace to ask questions and share my heart with him around a story he had told me that I had a very different perception of.  He listened and I felt his heart shift…he stood up and walked to me and gave me a big long hug and said, “Mom, I love you.”  Woot! Woot!

4. Next, I received a text message from a daughter (another big disconnect with she and her family) asking us to come for Grandparents Day at my granddaughter’s school.  We made the 7 hour trip and had a wonderful time with our granddaughter at her school and spending time together with her family.  I am so grateful for hearts opening to connection.

5. More recently, I received a call from my son.  He had taken the day off.  He shared what he is learning about meditation!  My ears perked up!  He asked me if I would lead in a meditation/prayer… however I wanted… with him on the phone.  Wow, so cool!  So I did both.  It was a sweet heart connection that we had not experienced before.

6. A few days ago, I received a call from my oldest daughter.  I haven’t had any communication from her for months.  She called to apologize for the things that she said to me the last time we talked.  Wow!  Guess who is at work!  Reconciler!

I’m thanking God for letting me partner with my angel Reconciler.

I am so grateful that we are learning to meet our angels and partner with them.  When there had seemingly been no evidence of healing in the family, the tide has shifted and fruit is coming forth..  Glory to God!

Where’s Betty?

Stories to Inspire

Our Heavenly inheritance is expanding all the time.  Just one of those areas of inheritance has been traveling in our spirit with Holy Spirit to do Kingdom missions.  And it’s been an amazing adventure.

But, as we all know, it’s also Biblical to ‘travel’ in our body.  Jesus did it, Philip did it, Ezekiel did it, Paul did it… etc.  And we even have modern day examples.

A convincing and significant record of these phenomena are recounted in the writings of the Catholic mystics (Remember, that was the only church there was until about 500 years ago).  Sadly, we lost many of those Heavenly realities.  BUT, what we lost is being regained in this last century.  And we’re actually seeing some of this recuperation happen right before our eyes.

Don’t you love it!  We’re stepping into that same reality that inspired John to write:

“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.” – I Jn 1:1

These ‘Stories to Inspire’ are of the ‘seen and touched’ kind!  Thank God!

Continue reading as my sister Leann Albrecht, tells of when her friend ‘disappeared’ for a while to go on a Kingdom mission.

Where’s Betty?

It was a Tuesday evening worship service.  Betty took her place on the same seat in the front row, where she always sits.

That day there had been a huge and very devastating earthquake in Nepal.  So we spent time during worship praying for Nepal.

As I was leading worship and sometime in the middle of our time of prayer, I looked up and realized that Betty wasn’t in her seat.  I thought that she may have stepped out for a minute to go to the bathroom.  But, ten minutes later she was still gone.  I thought to myself, “I hope she’s alright.  I’ll ask her later.”

Afterward, Betty was walking around, so I asked her, “Are you ok?”
“Sure, why?”
“You were gone from your seat for a while during worship.”
“No way.  I was here the whole time.”This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is spirit-travel.jpg
“I thought you may have gone to the bathroom.”
“No, I never left my seat.”
“Ok then, where were you?”

“I was in Nepal, walking the streets.  People were bumping into me because they couldn’t see me.  I could smell the street life and hear and feel the terror.  So, I released the Presence of God… the Peace and Power of Jesus over the people in the streets.  Then I came back.”

Even as we talked about it afterward, Betty was completely unaware that she had not only traveled with Holy Spirit in her spirit, but in physical form, also.  It was very hard for her to comprehend!

What a deal!!  This Heavenly mission with Holy Spirit involved Betty’s spirit AND body!  And there’s so much more ahead, for all of us! – LA/TN

Now I BELIEVE!

20 Jan

Yesterday morning my good friend Ryan, was driving to his work when ‘out of the blue’, he heard, “Your boss is going to complain about his painful elbow today.  If you pray for it, I will heal it.”  Ryan was kind of taken aback, because nothing he had been thinking about related to this thought.  Then, he promptly forgot about it.

During the day, his boss asked him for help and while they were together, his boss said, “Man! My elbow is so sore!”  Ryan immediately remembered the thought from earlier.  And before he could chicken out, he quickly said, “This morning on the way to work, God told me that you would complain about your elbow and that if I prayed for it, He would heal your elbow.  Do you mind if I pray?”

Hesitatingly, the boss said, “OK.”

Ryan prayed a very simple prayer and immediately asked his boss to move it and check it out.

The man exclaimed, “How’d you do that?!”  
Ryan asserted, “It’s God.  Is all the pain gone?”
 Surprised, “Almost all.” 
“Do you mind if I pray again?” 
“Sure.”

Another short prayer and the boss was elated.  The pain was all but gone… only the smallest of pain remained.  Ryan finished by saying, “You go home and when you wake up tomorrow morning the pain will be all gone!”This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is now-i-believe.jpg

Well, this morning Ryan texted his boss to get the assignment for the day and asked about the elbow.  Here’s the proof.

Don’t you love living in the Kingdom with God!!

Eyesight restored!

18 Jan

Somewhere around 10 years ago, my great friend Barry, who is of senior age, began to lose his vision in his left eye.  He had already lost all sight in his right eye.  The doctors diagnosed him as having macular degeneration.  This is a malady for which the medical community has no cure.  His eyesight had degenerated to 20/70, which made driving a vehicle very difficult.

About 8 years ago, someone prophesied to him that if he laid his hands on his eyes and prayed for them, God would begin to heal them.

About a week later, while in a leader’s meeting, a friend came up to him and said, “God told me to kiss your eyes and that He would heal them.”  Barry’s reaction was “fat chance”, but as he thought about it, he thought this is just weird enough that it could be God.  So he let the friend kiss his eyes.

A day or so later, Barry was in a completely different meeting when a young lady came up to him and said, “I feel like I am to sing a song over you.”  So she sang a spontaneous song which ended with singing in tongues.  Then the young lady gave him a painting she had painted, entitled, ‘The Eye of God’ (below). This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is eye.jpg

Within another day or so another person in Sioux Falls prayed for his eyesight.  Afterward, she challenged him, “Call it ‘macular RE-generation’.”

About a week later, Barry had a routine Dr appointment and discovered that his eyesight had dramatically improved to 20/45.  He and his wife Mary, were elated.  Interestingly, his eyesight has continued to slowly improve to between 20/35 and 20/30 over the last 7 years.

But a week ago, some guests were in Barry’s home and asked him about the “Eye of God” painting.  Barry told the story and gave glory to God for the improvement of his eyesight.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” – Rev 12:11

Well, a few days later, he had another routine Dr appointment.  In the eye exam he read all the lines and then asked if there were more lines.  The assistant said, “No Barry, that means you have 20/20 vision!”  Shortly afterwards,  Doctor Sam who had been attending Barry over the years, walked in and exclaimed (I quote verbatim), “Barry, what the hell you been doing!?”  Barry laughed and replied, “It’s an answer to prayer… God is healing me.”  With resignation, Doctor Sam replied, “Well, I don’t have any other explanation.” 

So through some strange… and even weird… installments, God has fully restored Barry’s eyesight in his left eye!!!  

Now, that deserves a Hallelujah and a Thank You, Lord!!!

Good dogs go to Heaven

Stories to Inspire

My friend Sully is a down to earth creative. He loves God as well as anyone, but isn’t exactly your garden variety cookie cutter church go-er. His style is somewhat maverick and very industrious. But God took him by surprise one evening in a group Heavenly experience. There were several great Heavenly encounters that evening, but I think Sully’s impacted me most deeply because Sully wasn’t exactly Sully, when he shared his story. His eyes wouldn’t stop leaking… and his sharing was labored and jerky, between deep waves of emotion. One needed to look no further to be solidly convinced of the powerful nature of Sully’s encounter. He was tearfully happy and a much free-er man than I’ve ever seen. For Sully, Father’s highly personalized Heavenly encounter was unforgettable and life changing.

O Lord, for many more Heavenly encounters!!!

Good dogs go to Heaven

I was raised to believe that going to Heaven was going to be really cool when it happened.  I was told, “You’ll be with Jesus, the 12 Apostles and all the saints.” Wow that’s cool, is Judas gonna be there, dad?  He was an apostle, right?” Yes he was son; but he got cut from the team, and we made a trade with the Pharisees for Saint Paul”… You’ll be surrounded by a cloud of witnesses, too.” Okay, are they like fluffy clouds or more like stormy clouds?  “No son, the cloud of witnesses is all those who have gone to heaven before you.” Oh, so Grampa will be there? “Yes he will”.  That’s great, I miss him.  What about Teddy (our dog that got killed by a car) and Toots (the turtle whose death was caused by eating beyond his shell capacity)?  No son, only people will be in heaven.  You see son, animals don’t have eternal souls like we do.  Oh…uh….okay.  And so, that was my introduction to Heaven.  Oh, one more thing, you had to be dead to go there.

Fast forward about fifty years and my friend Mark is in my barn with about 20 other people asking all of us if we want to “spirit travel, and go to heaven”. I no longer had a child’s view of Heaven, which was rather unfortunate, because Mark told us that children have a much easier time of spirit traveling because their head doesn’t get in the way of their “golden imagination”.  I didn’t think I’d be going to heaven on Mark’s Spirit bus, with my thick head; but I figured, what the h…eaven, I’ll give it a try.

And so, the journey began, with Mark gently encouraging us to let go of our earthly tethers; and enter through the door… “Jesus is the Door”.  Those were the last words I remember him saying, my mind slipped it’s adult mooring and I was a child of God, wandering in His green and golden Heaven.  I found myself (a much younger me, maybe 13 or so) wandering carefree in what appeared to be an endless green field, on a bright and beautiful sunny day. Suddenly, out of nowhere, my favorite dog, Jedidiah was there with me. He was jumping out of his skin with joy, wagging not just his tail; but wagging his entire body. His excitement was all consuming and as I fell to my knees to hug him, he intensified his affection with sloppy wet face licks for his master. We were having such a joyous reunion, that time seemed to stand still; and all that remained was joy, pure unabashed joy.

I should tell you that I was in my 50’s, not a boy when Jedi was my dog. Also, you should know that Jedi was a ranch dog and didn’t like going to the vet, AT ALL; but when he started acting sluggish we took him anyway. We were heartbroken when our vet delivered the devastating news, our young, ‘wonderboy’ had inoperable cancer. A tumor was growing inside him and the best we could do was to keep him comfortable until it was time to put an end to his suffering.  So when the time came, rather than add to his suffering by taking him to the vet, I took it upon myself to end his life. I’m not a stranger to killing; but putting down my favorite dog was a bitter pill to swallow. 

I’ve been around joy junkies for a while now; and to be honest, I never really trusted them. Haha. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t judge them for their “drunk in Spirit” behavior, I just simply didn’t have a clue as to what the heck they were doing or talking about.  Well, that little trip to heaven really flipped the script on me.  NOW I have an understanding of the joy they are talking about; but I have to say that little 3 letter word is woefully inadequate to describe my experience.  

When Mark asked if anyone wanted to share their experience to the group, I was very reluctant and finally, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, tried to explain what happened. However, I was so saturated by this emersion in God’s bottomless ocean of JOY, that salt water was springing from my eyes! Now, if those tears had letters or words, I’m sure they would tell you about this level of joy a whole lot better than me. I simply cannot find adequate words to describe it; and for 6 months I’ve tried! The closest I can get is “Heavenly Joy”… and I pray you and I get to have some more of it before we get there! – SS

New heart granted

10 Jun

Stories to Inspire series…

As we grow in God, we realize that He gave us a new heart, we just have to learn to live from our new heart instead of the old patterns of yesterday.  “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” (kainos – new species) (II Cor 5:17).  We must be diligent to “get a new mind” (Rms 12:2) and experience “the washing of regeneration, and the renewing of the Holy Ghost” (Titus 3:5).  

O, it’ll take some time to wean ourselves from the earth-centered consciousness to the upgraded Heaven-based consciousness… but it’s so worth it.  

Below, my buddy Earl shares a story of how God recently gave him a new heart… at least took away all the problems that his old heart used to have.  If you have heart or blood pressure issues, let this testimony be your ticket to a position of faith for your own miracle.  


_______________________________________


New heart granted

About three months ago, I started to have issues with my blood pressure.  When I exercised it would rise instantly to over 180/100 and I would feel pressure in my chest. Just resting I would feel it rise and my head would start to pound.  It was constantly above 150/90 even when resting. I would wake up in the middle of the night with it 165/98. I was feeling fatigued all the time.


Add this with my history of having a quadruple heart bypass surgery 9 years ago; I have been understandably concerned my arteries were getting clogged again.  These were all the same symptoms I had before that last surgery.

Another concern was the VA Doctor has been after me for years to take cholesterol-lowering medications and I refused them.  I could hear them saying “I told you so.”

The first thing I did was give up salt and sugar.  Yes, I salted bacon.  Sylvia, my other Holy Spirit, has been saying I needed to quit the salt for years.  Amazing what you will do when you hear the “shot across the bow.”  That was five weeks ago and my resting blood pressure returned to normal, but I was still having chest pressure and extremely high blood pressure when I exerted any activity.  Going up the stairs twice caused it to spike and my chest to tighten.

At a meeting at Mark Hendrickson’s, I explained to him what was going on with me and asked for prayer sometime during the meeting.  Later there was a time of prayer for those who needed healing… so several gathered around me to pray.  God’s presence was wonderful.  I felt that something had happened but no real outward signs.
Five days later I went for a stress test at the hospital.  I walked and eventually started jogging and continued for 9 minutes.  They got my heart rate up to 125 and my blood pressure rose slowly from 125/76 to 135/80 to 175/88 and then when I rested it immediately came down to 135/65!  No chest pressure at all!!  After that, they put dye in my IV and had me run for another minute.  After nuclear imaging, I was sent home.  At 4 pm I received a call from the doctor’s nurse.  She said there were no issues and no further tests needed.  She said I was at low risk for heart problems.  I have not had a high blood pressure reading since that prayer time.

This gets even better.  I have been taking 12.5mg of Carvedilol for a heart arrhythmia problem.  The VA put a 24-hour heart monitor on me and my heart skipped a beat over 6,000 times during that period.  I have been taking that for 9 years.  I felt the Lord say to stop taking it, so that is what I did.  That was several weeks ago and my heart has not skipped a beat.  I have not had one side effect from the sudden discontinuation of the medication.  I feel like my youth is being renewed according to Psalm 103:5, “Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”  I have quoted this Psalm at least once a week for years.  And to think this is under the older covenant.  What does the New Covenant promise? – EA

Follow-up: “It’s been a month now. All blood pressure and arrhythmia issues are still healthy normal as they should be. But I’ve discovered another blessing… Since I’m off of the meds, my short term memory has dramatically improved. I began noticing a marked improvement… and even my wife and friends have noticed it. Wow!!! Thank You, God!!!”

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget ALL His benefits!!!” – Ps 103:2

Jesus rewrote the story

Stories to Inspire

This story may not be so much different from some other great ministries such as; Sozo, Theophostic, Healing Prayer or Emanuel Prayer…. all of which are methodologies of healing problematic issues in our past.  But in most of those practices, it requires a ‘coach’ to assist you on this journey into our healing.

Isa 2:3 says that He (Himself) will teach us of His ways and we shall learn to walk in His paths AS we learn to ascend to the Mountain of the Lord.   Did you catch that?  We must ascend… that’s UP to to His territory.  Thank God for people who come alongside us to help us into breakthroughs.  We’re very grateful!  But what would it be like if we were led by Jesus Himself?  

I believe this is just one of the many benefits of learning to ascend into the Heavenlies.  And that’s just for starters!!! 

Listen to Karen’s recent story of how Jesus lovingly cared for her as He personally escorted her back in time to a place of a lot of pain for a young 12-year-old girl.  He extracted that pain from her memories.  It reminds us again that He wants to and is very capable of restoring all things in our lives.   

Let’s let Him.

Jesus rewrote the story

“Recently I was invited to go through the ‘Door’ of heaven (John 10:9).  Here’s my experience.”

“Once I walked through the Door I heard water gushing and I saw a waterfall, high cliffs and beauty all around.”

“Jesus came to me and said, ”Let me love you,” and beckoned me to follow Him.  He led me to a scene in my past where I was recovering from spinal fusion surgery.  I was in a very hot and depressing room in a Children’s Hospital in Nebraska.  My Mom was in the room with me.”

“When Jesus walked into the room it was suddenly filled with beautiful flowers and a lovely fragrance.  He motioned for me (adult Karen) to crawl into the bed with young Karen and hold her.”

“One by one He led me back into many memories in that hospital where I stayed for 3 months.  There were many dark memories that happened in that hospital to myself and others.  I was in that hospital 400 miles away from home at age 12 without my family — except for a couple of visits from them.  Each memory we walked through, He transformed into a fun party.  Every day became a big party in the ward with 30 other girls between the ages of 12-18.  Some days we had our toes painted and some days we had our fingernails painted.  We had angels attending us in a loving and kind way.  There was an atmosphere of great joy in the place.  Jesus rewrote the story… not only for me, but for every girl in that ward.”Jesus rewrote the story

“There is truly a transformation of joy happening inside of me because of this encounter.  I love how Jesus took the memories and experiences and redeemed them as only He can.  As a result, these memories are not holding me as a victim any longer!!  Now, when I remember this season in my childhood I feel a sense of joy instead of dread.” – KD

Go back and remake your choice

28 Feb

Stories to Inspire

Have you ever had a regret in your past that you wished you could go back and do it right?  Of course… I think most of us have.  What if there was a way to do just that?

1.  Is it Biblical to go back in time?   Can we have any influence over something so pervasive as TIME?

Paul admonishes us to “redeem the time”.  Most of us probably think that means to just work harder or more diligently.  And I imagine that is good for starters but I’m confident that there is more latitude for interpretation of this verse.  Here are just a few references to changes of time in our Bibles.

“Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” – Eph 5:15-16

“And another king shall rise up… and he will intend to change times and the law…” – Dan 7:25

Sun went backward ten steps for Hezekiah – II Kngs 20:9-11

“So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies.  Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.” – Josh 10:13

2. So how can I change things back in time?  How can I change things that seem buried in my past? 

Well, for starters check out a post on my blog of how a daughter was physically healed without knowing that her mother went back in time andrewrote the script.”

And now, check out Donna’s story as she remakes a choice in an event that happened many decades before.
_______________________________________________


Go back and remake your choice

“A few years ago I read Nancy Ravenhill’s story and was impressed with how she prayed for Jesus’ help during some abusive times as a child.  Her story reminded me of something that happened to me when I was a little girl.  I wished I could have asked Jesus for help then, but at the time I didn’t know to do that.  Instead, my experience brought fear into my life.”

“Several months after reading Nancy’s book, I heard Patricia King speak at a conference.  She said that Jesus, as our redeemer, “buys back and reestablishes”.  She said, “If there is an area you have remorse over, go back into the memory with Jesus.  Repent, receive forgiveness.  Then make the right choice.  He can then fix and redeem the situation.””

“I decided to go back to my childhood experience and remake my choice, which I didn’t know how to make when I was young.”

“What happened—more than 50 years ago—was that I “saw” a man in my closet, an old man wearing a suit.  I was afraid of him and afraid to get out of bed.  My mom came, opened the closet, and showed me that no one was there.  But the fear remained throughout my childhood and into adulthood.  Looking back on this incident through the years I always saw that man in the closet.”

“I went back in time in my imagination to the experience with the intention to make a better choice than I made as a little girl.  I told Jesus I was sorry that I didn’t ask for His help back then.  I asked Him to help me and to take care of the man in my closet.  It was that simple.  The next part was not a product of my imagination.  I saw Jesus angrily dropkick that man right out of the house.  Gone for good!  I knew Jesus was not happy about what had happened to me, and that too was healing.  From then till now I see only an empty closet.” – Donna
