My Testimony: Mental Illness & Homeless Lifestyle.

Psalm 18:15
Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, At the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

This is the day that the Lord has made, we shall rejoice and be glad. It was just like two days ago all happened when things were not working well for my life when realizing that things were not going well for us at home. Eventually, there was no job left because I was fired. When the sadness hit my heart, I started finding ways to make money when the second news hit our family; I couldn't find a job so unemployment was the only choice for me to live on an income of unemployment. Months later, the vehicle we depended on was into an accident. I couldn't find answers to all my troubles, but I didn't give up. I held on my life. I was born in the village of Grand Gedeh, Liberia West Africa, August 9, 1982 Monday.

Romans 5:3 (KJV) And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

Poverty got us into sins that my parents had to work long days hours to help us with food, drinks, shelter, and clothing. We lived in a rich neighborhood both parents worked but in poor conditions where many of us siblings share the same bed. But we were happier and content.

Philippians 4:12 (KJV) I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

But really, the understanding of mental illness becomes a shocker to the world to understand what really did go wrong with the Woman of God to have entered the mental hospital? While evangelizing in the streets, not realizing the time and hour of the night, I was found by the Policemen who comforted me until entering into ambulance. When I arrived at the emergency room, I was wheeled into the room and immediately, I was bond by men and administered medication to me by injection. I almost thought that it was in a comma. I went into a deep sleep until realizing that it was over for me. That was when I began living my life into a mental hospital for nearly four years.

There were days I spent one month other times, several weeks and at times, I didn't think I would ever end the visits to the mental hospital. Living at the mental hospital were all about eating, medications, and saying hello to others in the current situations. There were limited visits time. There were days, I had to be bond to bed because I didn't obey rules of medications and screams in the hallways. The room that I was put in is a small size room with a bare twin size bed. It was very uncomfortable and didn't feel like a bed.
Other days, I felt so isolated and out of order. All days long I would hear different instruction voices and false visions. I would see false visions and false jesus and false spirits that claim to speak to me as the Holy Spirit. Nothing seemed to work as I took those pills, I wouldn't feel any changes or differences.

The truth is that homeless person that I was and still am walking away from the lifestyle of homeless living. Sleeping inside shelters and coaches of friends. Nowhere to call home. Couldn't work nor was able to understand how to fully care for myself.

There were days, I would walk long walks and stand longer, other days, I would lay down on the bed doing nothing. The truth was I didn't understand what was truly happening to my life until I realized that it was time to seek God.
Besides the prayer phone conference, I was attending Christian Fellowship Church. The church picked up me and drop me off to prayer.
I was faithful in the phone prayer lines that demons started to leave eventually. Through the revival of prayers I was delivered from a mental hospital.

Psalm 18:16‭-‬18 KJV
He sent from above, he took me, He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: For they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity: But the LORD was my stay.

Today, the Lord has blessed me with spiritual gifts to use as my strong armor to protect me from mental illness. The Lord has delivered me fully from mental illness hospital stays. I am about to soon have my degree in ministry to enable me to hold ministry. The Lord has performed many miracles signs in my life. I am happy to announce my freedom through the mighty powers of the Holy Spirit, my Parents Mr. & Mrs. Benjamin Toe Collins reside in Detroit, Michigan. I am thankful to all those prayer warriors who pray for my full recovery.

Today, I want to tell you today that if you never received the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please submit and understand that we have sinned and fallen short to the Glory of God. If God can deliver me from mental illness hospital he can do anything for you. I want you to know making this decision of your life, God will rewrite your life story. If you are in agreement, please say this salvation prayer.

Mighty Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner. Today I want to fully repent and turn away from all sins and give you my life. Please forgive me and cleanse me from all sins in your precious Holy Blood. I believe you are my Lord and I am sorry for all those past sins in Jesus Name. Today, I am born again.

CONGRATULATIONS! saying this prayer gets you closer to the Lord Jesus. From now on, please read Holy Bible, read scriptures verses, worship songs, prayers daily. Remember, you have a praying friend therefore, please never stop praying in Jesus Name.

Ephesians 2:4‭-‬10 KJV
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: that in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Happening Now.
