The Spirit Project

Spiritual warfare is real, but it is also nothing to fear if you have placed your faith in Jesus, as your Lord and Savior. However,  the Bible tells us in Ephesians 6  “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”

We planned to make a film called For Such a Time, but it wasn’t to be, at least not at this time. The story of the film’s focus is on the unseen spiritual battle that takes place all around us. We wanted to give people the opportunity to share some of the spiritual battles they have faced.

If you’d like to learn more about the film project please visit For Such a Time or the kickstarter page for the project.

Please share your story below in the comments or you can email it to us and we’ll post it for you anonymously.

    My husband and I adopted three kids from Ukraine five years ago. It was a huge spiritual battle. It began with five years of infertility. We then decided to adopt. While waiting to adopt a domestic child, my husband and I decided to host two boys from Ukraine for the summer (a church sponsored event). Then we decided to go ahead and adopt the boys, which led to me spending three months in Ukraine during the adoption process. Not supposed to take that long, but it did.

    Got there, found out they had a sister, agreed to adopt all three. Had pretty serious car accident in a taxi cab while in Ukraine, put my translator in hospital and out of commission for important meetings. My husband had his wallet stolen on the subway there. I almost missed the final adoption court hearing due to another accident. Our house was being painted back home early in the adoption process, jewelry was stolen by painters. Stress of the robbery led me to get very very sick while in Ukraine.

    After adoption, kids were far more than we could handle, oldest boy was out of control (17 when we adopted him), stole a car while drunk driving, threatened to rape the nanny, refused to obey any house rules, refused to learn English, led his siblings to also reject our authority as parents.

    My biological daughter was 16 at the time, suffered severe emotional trauma from the whole adoption ordeal. Oldest adopted child returned to Ukraine when he turned 18, which caused his younger brother to have severe emotional issues. Had to call the police multiple times due to either him running away or extreme violence at home. My husband travels a lot for work which left him feeling helpless.

    Eventually we had to place our adopted son into a Christian residential treatment center in Michigan (Promise Village) which saved his life and ours. They are wonderful. He is still there today. He battles a severe addiction to porn. A month after placing him at Promise Village, my biological child was raped. The stress of all of that caused me to have severe health issues (hypothyroid), all while struggling with menopause, which did lovely wonders for my marriage, as you can imagine. My husband has struggled with health issues of his own during all of this, severe and chronic pain throughout his whole body.

    Now, life is still a little fragile, but we are piecing it back together. My health is getting better. We have only the youngest adopted child at home now and she is such a blessing and joy. My biological daughter who was raped is starting to piece things back together but she still struggles. Throughout this whole story, God has been present, loving, gracious and good. He has given us strength when we didn’t have on our own, hope in the face of much sadness, loss and desperation, and healing for the many wounds and afflictions that came our way.

    There is much more to this story, of course. I can’t possibly capture it all in a quick message. And it’s not a unique story really, as many suffer from similar and equally difficult circumstances. But it is amazing how God is ever present, even in the darkest places. And in the end, he has a plan and a purpose for all of it. He can (and will) take and use the darkest times for His glory, if we let Him.

    I went to visit my Aunt Petra. She lived about an hour from my house. Afterwards I had decided to visit the local casino with my then husband. I don’t gamble but decided to go for a little entertainment.

    I played the slots standing up for awhile and I decided to sit down and play a slot machine. While I was sitting down an elderly lady sat next to me. She never looked at me. The minute she sat next I immediate felt very uncomfortable. I wanted to get away. While I was wrestling with my thoughts about it a little old man sat next to the elderly lady. I immediately felt calm. I looked over at the man and he was playing a game but then he leaned way back behind the lady so I could see him. He gave me this cute little way and had a huge smile. It was like I’m here now your safe. Nothing evil will hurt you. I smiled back at him he was so cute. I knew an Angel had come to protect me. To protect me from the negative presence of the lady. I finished what I was playing and immediately left. I really felt like I had encountered a good vs bad situation. I really felt my waving Angel came to protect me from harm.

    I had an experience just last night around 1:30 am while I was sleeping. All of a sudden I felt this pressure the entire length of my body, pressing me down so hard that the boards under my mattress made a cracking sound. I immediately tried to speak and could only get out the word “God”. Immediately I heard what sounded like large wings flapping and the pressure was gone. During this experience, I also tried to open my eyes but was unable to do so until after the pressure lifted.

    For some context, I am a deeply spiritual person and always ask for Almighty God’s white light of protection over me and my home every night before bed.

    Before I started the practice of asking for protection, I’d had the same type of experience a few times before, but I was never able to speak – and I never heard the wings. That, to me, was the most amazing thing – hearing those wings. I just know my Guardian Angel was battling whatever it was that tried to attack me. The entire event lasted less than a minute or two, but I was hyper-aware of every second.

    The other amazing thing was that when I felt the initial pressure, I knew immediately that I was being attacked by something dark and non-human, so I urgently called out to God and, for the first time, was able to verbalize His name – then heard those wings. I also never felt fear. I knew at that moment, that I had Divine protection. I did clutch the Holy Bible to my heart for a little while afterward but was able to drop back off to sleep with no problem.

    I don’t know if anyone else would see this as a spiritual attack, but because this has happened to me more than once, and this recent event had audible evidence of SOME kind of activity, that it is, at the very least, compelling and I certainly believe it was a supernatural experience in which I was saved by Divine forces from God.

    I’ve had other truly amazing experiences but felt the need to share this spookier event to see if you’ve heard of anything like it with other people. I’d love to know if anyone else has had anything similar happen to them.

    In 2000 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Needless to say the chemo and radiation were very physically draining. Although I continued to work through it all – every morning I would begin praying as soon as I got in the car to start my 45 min drive
    to work. It was imperative for me to have this morning prayer time so that I would have strength and a sound mind just to get through the day.

  5. Several years ago, I was driving home in my van with my small children and I was praying and crying, as I did a lot in those days. My husband and I were going through great difficulties in our marriage at the time. I had just caught him viewing pornography and found out he had some type of involvement with young ladies who were part of his new “hobby.” I remember crying out in prayer much of the time, desperate for God to heal our marriage. As I was in the van that day, I was again asking God to intervene and do something to heal our marriage and suddenly, I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit fill that van so intensely that it almost felt (as close as I can explain it) like a strong force or wind blowing through my van. He spoke to me in the midst of that and said, “Everything is going to be okay; I will be with you.” A few minutes later, I arrived home and my husband confessed to his sex addiction. I actually laughed in his face, saying “What? You never touch me. How can you be addicted to sex?” He admitted to his porn problem and the fact he had been addicted for years. Even though I already sensed it before he confessed it, this news made me feel like my last breath had just been kicked out of me. I was numb, disgusted and felt betrayed. The Holy Spirit spoke just in time and this is the ONLY thing that held me together at that very moment, when otherwise I would have fallen apart. I still deeply loved this man and to think of all the times he cheated both directly and indirectly really hurt.

    He quickly became an angry person. It looked like his eyes were filled with hatred whenever he looked at me, almost demonic like. I became afraid he would hurt me physically at this point. I prayed every day that God would protect me from him and surround me and my home with angels until I could find a place to move, which did not happen until a few years later. Right before we moved out of state together (and then he left right after we moved), my then 4-year-old son insisted one night as I put him to bed that he got up in the middle of the night the night before because of a light outside his bedroom window. When he looked out into the driveway, a very bright, glowing angel was in the driveway looking at him. I told him that perhaps it was a dream and he was very adamant it was real. I felt at that moment that God had answered my prayer and sent a guardian angel to guard me and my household from harm by my husband.
