My name is Jade and I‘ve been a student at Mary’s song for 5 months. I grew up in a small town in the country, with two older siblings, my mom and dad. Through abuse, and other things, he enemy slipped in and I began to believe lie after lie. I was less than, I wasn’t enough, I was alone, and no one understood me.
As and young teenager I went through a major trauma that made me very angry with God and warped my identity. From that point on began using drugs and alcohol to cope with my past, who I was, and my worthlessness. Through the years my addiction progressed and so did the worthlessness. I ended up becoming a heroine addict which took me to the point of multiple drug overdoses in a short period of time.
During a revival serviced while Pastor Zach was preaching on the story of Lazarus the Lord gave me a vision. He took me back to the last of the series of overdoses, but this time I was watching. I was not alone. I saw myself dead, and sitting beside dead, and sitting beside me was Jesus. I heard Him telling my lifeless body to wake up. He said, get up! Come on get up! you have to tell people about me! And with that my body rose to life. I watched myself questioning if I was dead or alive. Pinching my skin and running in circles to try and feel if there was still a physical body attached to my spirit
In this vision I was watching my frantic body and talking to the Lord as He took me through this event again and I asked Him to reveal His glory to me. At the time of the actual overdosed I looked in a mirror to see if I was still “there”, but during the vision when I asked the Lord to reveal to me His glory He replied with, “go look in the mirror.”
“Didn’t I tell you that you will see God’s glory if you believe?” 41 So they rolled the stone aside. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. 42 You always hear me, but I said it our loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so they will believe You sent me. “43 Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, Come Out!” 44 And Lazarus came out, bound in greave clothes, his faced wrapped in a head cloth. Jesus told them, unwrap him and let him go!
Now I am no longer bound by my pain, trauma or past. Jesus called me out of my grave and I am now alive!!!!!!!
