Before coming to Above and Beyond Counseling Center, I was in chains. I experienced a very rough childhood that led me into an addiction of drugs and alcohol. As I reflect back to who I was prior to being delivered by the Holy Spirit I was in bondage in every area of my life!
I had tried programs; treatment centers all of the above. I even consistently tried walking with the Lord and doing it on my own but I always seemed to be brought back around to the same problems. I felt hopeless, thoughts of suicide and death ran around in my head constantly the anxiety and paranoia had gotten to be so much that I couldn’t work or barely even get out of my bed! I was plagued with shame and guilt.
Even with all the love and support of my family, my children and my wife who all fully knew the consequences of my actions, I just couldn’t stop running off using drugs. The Lord was bringing me to my end and preparing a place for my deliverance. I just couldn’t see it yet.
After my first session with Don I began to realize between the voices in my head and the thoughts and beliefs about myself that I was being demonically oppressed. I knew that I had to have faith and believe with all my heart that Jesus Christ could set me free.
I took my deliverance very serious, believing that what I put into it I would get out of it. With God as my witness, He did it. I can honestly say without a shadow of doubt everyday my joy is being restored! The overwhelming anxiety and oppression has stopped!
Even though the enemy tries to come in and cheat kill and destroy I have the tools now to fight him, not believe the lies and choose to believe what Christ says! I mean everything I’m saying with all my heart!
These last few weeks have been life changing and my heart goes out to Above and Beyond Ministries and the amazing blessing they’ve been to my family and me.
My hope is that this testimony gives someone the encouragement and faith to get the same healing I have had. Most importantly I give all the honor and praise to Jesus for the unbelievable work he has started in me!
