Ex-Marine Supernaturally Healed of PTSD Now Helps Others Find Freedom

by | Jan 17, 2020 | Supernatural & Dreams

As a former U.S. Marine who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, Jared Laskey is well acquainted with the horrors of war and the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. But he also knows firsthand the miraculous and incredible power of Holy Spirit and how God can radically heal the broken for His purposes.

An author and staff writer for GODTV, Laskey himself has experienced God’s healing power after suffering a traumatic brain injury from negligent discharge from a shotgun blast next to his head in Afghanistan. He was also diagnosed with PTSD, which led to a rough transition when he came back home in 2009.

“I was angry with these crazy outbursts and then depression,” Laskey told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent edition of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “It was horrible thoughts, night terrors, weird things. For a while I couldn’t sleep in my own bed; I had to sleep on the floor. I realized I was no longer me.

“But realize that, because of Jesus, by His stripes, we are healed. Like with me, He fixes things all for His glory. Like with me, God can still heal us and use us to bring healing to other people everywhere we go.

“If you are experiencing adversity, no matter what you are going through, put your eyes on Jesus and partner and fellowship with the Holy Spirit, and He will lift you up out of the miry clay. All things are possible in Jesus and, no matter where you’ve been, no matter what you’ve done, He can use you for His glory. Holy Spirit is still speaking to people on the front lines.”
