All my life I was told ghost stories and wives tales. When I was 3 years old, I was watching “Lost in Space” and there was a mummy on this particular episode. That night, I awoke to see this same mummy standing at the foot of my bed. This was the beginning of my fear of darkness.
.For forty years the fear of darkness had me afraid to go outside alone after dark. Even while in the arm forces, I struggled with a fear of darkness in spite of the fact that I was carrying a loaded rifle. It made no sense to me that I would still be afraid of the dark even when carrying a loaded gun. Even after I received Christ as my Lord and Savior, the fear remained with me.
In 2001 I met Jess Parker and ask him to pray for me. He cast the spirit of fear out and sense that day I have been free of the fear of darkness. I am now aware of the power that is within me through Christ and any time I am confronted with fear of any kind, I resist it and immediately its power is broken.
