MCML Podcast E13: Rose’s Story – Overcoming Spiritual Warfare
Rose is a freshman at the Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Zoology and Wildlife Biology with a focus on Marine Biology. She loves to scuba dive and go on mission trips and wants to be known as a woman who stands strong in every trial and tribulation.
Her most recent mission trip to Hyderabad in India taught her the true meaning and importance of Faith. This past trip had her going through a difficulty in accepting that she is a child of God. Rose has struggled with anxiety her whole life and it has been a problem that she tends to turn away from the Lord. Instead of reaching out to the Lord first, she used to reach out to her own ways of coping with trials and that was to hurt herself.
There was a point in her trip when she believed that she was not good enough and did not know why God had led her there. One night the devil was whispering in her ear telling her that she was not good enough. It was not until her team came and found her that she realized that what was happening was actually spiritual warfare. Her team members became her life support. The Holy Spirit flowed through them and into Rose, and that night she learned that she does not need to hurt herself anymore. Because she has Jesus Christ in her life and she has faith that He can protect her from the lies that the devil had been whispering in her ears.
With this breakthrough came the realization that it’s not just other people’s lives that are changed when going on a mission. Her own life has also been changed and some things have been revealed to her. These are things about herself and how God’s raw love can radically change your love for yourself and other people.
Rose’s story helps us understand how one’s life can change on an international mission trip and how our faith in Jesus Christ can become the ultimate weapon for overcoming spiritual warfare.
