So I have been thinking about you all that visit here on this WordPress site. I also am going to step up my prayers for you. Why? Because I know that you are called and appointed by God and destined to be here at this time in history. Yes, you!!! That is one of my all time favorite attributes of God. He shows favor to anyone He wants. Our acceptance by God is through us accepting what His Son came and did for us. Jesus makes us worthy to be in the kingdom of God – not our works – our belief.

Anyway – I want to help you if I can. I have been on a 40 year journey and have seen many miracles and encountered so much of the miraculous presence of God. I want you to open up an HOPE. That God wants to reveal Himself to you in some of the same ways He did in my life. The Bible says He is “no respecter of persons”. If you seek Him like I did you WILL get results far above what you could expect.

I pray you will read this little excerpt from my story and realize God has assignments for you too. I want to set this before you so you will know that God wants to do for this generation as He has done in the Book of Acts. Here is a modern day story from my little life that shows – God will show up for those who seek Him and desire to obey Him. So here it is:

ANGEL AT THE TIME CLOCK

Now I fully believed that we have angels working with us.  I had just never seen one with wings on the earth, until that day…

I went to work in the small little town of Greenville, North Carolina.  I worked at a place called S. & S. Cafeteria and it was located in the towns only mall. I drove the ten or fifteen miles to work with the radio on trying to get ready for another mundane day.  I arrived on time and began walking down the hallway towards the time clock to punch in. 

Out of the blue, for a moment,  my eyes were opened to the unseen realm.  The spirit realm.  Lo and behold right before my eyes, standing beside the time clock, was a beautiful giant angel.  He was tall, maybe ten feet or more,  and glistened like gold.  He had wings that reached to the ceiling and was so majestic looking.  It was not a frightening experience, but it startled me because it was so unexpected.  Then quickly, the vision closed, but I knew he was still there. I was aware of what the Bible teaches about the gifts of the Holy Spirit located in chapter 12 of the book of 1 Corinthians.  That at times when the Holy Spirit desires to, He can open your eyes so that you can see what is in the spirit realm, it’s called “discerning of spirits”,  and that is what I had experienced.

All day long I wondered what the Angel was there for.  Was he there to prevent an accident?  A robbery?  My mind danced around like crazy with curiosity!  Finally, I took my lunch break and sat down at the table with my Bible.  As I was eating and reading, a young man came and sat down abruptly across from me and looked me square in the eye.  He said, “I heard you were a Christian”  I said, “Yes I am.”

He excitedly said, “What must I do to get saved?”   Well, here it was!  I knew the Angel was there to see to it that this event took place.  There is no greater miracle than the new birth, to become what the Bible calls “born again”.   When someone accepts Christ and has their name written in the Book of Life.  After showing him some scripture and briefly explaining salvation, I prayed with the young man at the table to receive Jesus as his Lord.   I also asked him to meet me after work to talk about the baptism in the Holy Spirit which he was excited to do! I figured he needed the whole package!

The young man did meet me in the parking lot after work and received the baptism.  It was incredible.  I felt like I was living in the Book of Acts!  The Holy Spirit descended on him and he was filled with God’s presence and spoke in tongues right there in the parking lot!  Never think God is limited to a church for a holy experience to take place!  The whole earth is filled with His glory!

  I knew that this had been a divine appointment. A special one because God allowed me to see the presence of the Angel, although they are surrounding us in the spirit realm all the time, especially if we are believers.  This man’s life was now transformed.  I don’t remember his name, but I saw him a year or so later and he said he was going to Bible school to be a minister. He wanted to be a Pastor.  I knew God was taking good care of him and it was a blessing to have been allowed to take part in his journey.

How cool to think of the angels involvement in our lives.  All going on around us in the unseen realm!  They are around you too!  The more we pray and walk in faith….the more they are activated around us!

Hebrews 13:2  “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”

1 Corinthians 12:7-11   “ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:  for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.  But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

CALLED TO ENTER (poetry)

November 20, 2020

Think not that God doesn’t know you

That He doesn’t see your life

It is He that has fashioned and made you

You are centered in His eye

You are His creation

And He makes all things well

Though it all may seem a mystery

In time the truth shall tell

He made you for a purpose

Yes you fit in His divine scheme

As perfect as a puzzle piece

That completes His heart felt dream

His heart, it longs to know you

And for you to know Him too

He invites you to this journey

But He won’t force you into

He longs for deep communion

Just between you and He

He longs to open up your eyes

To things only He can see

Fulfillment is in intimacy

That can be found in Him

As you take the steps on earth

To seek Him once again

You see at once the enemy

That tries to cloud your soul

He wants to take you down with him

Into the eternal Sheol

Don’t let the lies get to you

That’s contrary to God’s Word

Let the Bible lead you

The truth that you have heard

So like a giant treasure

You must choose to seek

Determine you will find it

Until your life’s complete

You are His great diamond

Only one of it’s kind

He made no other like you

This truth He wants you to find

So determine now to see Him

Look into His word

Call His name in the darkness

And KNOW that you have been heard.

Tenderness
Cocooning all around
A life with much pain
Will receive such a crown

All of the tears
Collected in love
Gentleness sees
Observes from above

All of the days
You thought you were alone
Never a moment
Just a breath from His throne

Tender loving Father
I wish we could see
Unravel the layers
Of seeming debris

Things we’ve considered
Of little report
Are the things heaven sees
Receives great reward

Small acts of kindness
Trickles of love
Never forgotten
Peace like a dove

Acts of forgiveness
In the face of such hate
Makes the Father smile
You’re a champion at the gate

Psalm 56:8,9
“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?
When I cry out to You,
Then my enemies will turn back;
This I know, because God is for me.

I know many of us are worried about the coming election.  But I want to share something with you.   On Saturday, September 26th,  we went to Washington D. C.  To join a Day of Prayer and Repentance called “The Return” with Johnathan Cahn coordinating it.

It was just that.  Around 75,000 people stood and knelt on the ground weeping and repenting for the sins of the nation ,  listing many of them one by one.  Yes it took hours.  And it was awesome and so right.  The unity of the body of Christ and the Presence of God among us was palpable.  

It went from 9a.m. to 9p.m.  and it was not tiring at all, but life giving.  You could feel it.  This is what God has wanted us to do for a long time.  Another group was simultaneously doing a prayer walk around D.C. with Franklin Graham.   When it was over – I wondered.  Was this enough?  To stay the hand of judgement and procure from God’s hand a little more time to turn this nation around?  It would have only taken 10 righteous for God to spare Sodom and Gomorrah. (Genesis 18).  Was this enough for a nation of 330 million?

Then a month later another group of mainly young people filled the national Mall again and worshipped and prayed for four hours and then walked all around praying and worshipping at different sites in D.C.   And we saw a victory with a pro life supreme court justice sworn in the next day.  That gives me hope.

Now another group of believers will gather and pray at the end of October.  People have been traveling from all over the United States to join in these gatherings.  And there were over 12 million joining online for ‘The Return”. Plus millions around the world joining  in livestream and praying for America.

Only God knows what He will do.  But for the first time in a long time,  I have hope that God may grant us more time for revival if we will continue and not stop after the election.  The church is out of the building and in part we need to keep it that way and not retreat into a mindset of  four walls and only individual programs.  

There needs to be unifying events like these.  A Body of Christ that will rise up and fight against the darkness and lawlessness of the age.  A Body that will pray and fast and seek His face until a great awakening and harvest of souls comes full throttle into our land.

It was so beautiful to be with believers of all walks of life.  The unity of purpose was incredible.  It felt like we were experiencing the answer to Jesus prayer in John 17:22.  when He prayed that we would be “one” as they are “One”.   I saw Amish, Baptist, Messianics, Pentecostals, and probably most denominations were represented among us.  All that was secondary – we were there for Jesus.  To do His will.  To cry out for our nation.  

I pray it continues and grows.  May God bless this land of ours and a harvest of souls come into the kingdom of God!  

If God needed to warn you about something or get a message to you,……could you discern it? Would you detect God speaking to you in a dream? God is no respecter of persons and my desire is to give safety guidelines with scripture. The enemy comes with dreams too. Can you tell how to judge them? This is about safety for the people that I love. Everybody dreams. Most mean nothing – but is good to know how to judge them. I hope this helps someone – even one. (p.s. near the end I said “Deborah, when I meant Elisha” (2 Kings 6:12) oops please overlook, I can’t edit these.) https://youtu.be/yj2MdUjcp9o

I’m getting disgusted with the censorship from Facebook and youtube. Please let me know if you are able to access the video from the link. Thanks so much.

It’s easy sometimes to read the Word of God and not seem to get anything from it.  How is it that some people say that the Word “spoke” to them and came to life?  How does that happen?  It can happen in many ways, but I want to give you a small example.

I was reading one of my favorite scriptures, Psalm 91, affectionately known as the protection scripture.  I came to the part that says,  “surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler”.   That just seemed to jump out at me.  It seemed to stand out and beckon me to go deeper.  What is a fowler?  So I stopped what I was doing and looked it up.  A fowler is one who catches birds in a snare, usually by pulling an attached cord.

Now I’m not a bird, and God often speaks metaphorically, but I still didn’t get it.  Yet I felt it was standing out for a reason.  So I stopped reading and prayed this scripture over myself.  “Lord, deliver me from the snare of the fowler.”  I said that prayer for several days having no idea why, just in faith believing that God had magnified this particular passage.

Events came to pass quickly.  I had been diagnosed with crohn’s syndrome for about 7 years.  I had tried many different medications to no avail.  They finally tried a shot that lowers your immune system and I had a horrible allergic reaction (thankfully).  They sent me to UNC Medical center for another opinion on what to do with me.

My first meeting with the new doctor, he looked at my blood test results that my doctor had sent him.  He looked at me somewhat frustrated and said, “I don’t think you have crohn’s disease at all.”  I was shocked – how many tests my doctor done and said it was crohn’s?   Then he showed me some pretty simple numbers on the lab results explaining his conclusion.  Then he asked if he could privately (apart from my doctor) do his own colonoscopy to confirm his belief.  And sure enough I DID NOT HAVE IT!!!

For seven years I had been in pain on and off and taking some kind of different medicines that didn’t work and still not feeling well.  This UNC doctor told me to immediately stop the medicines and gave me something mild to calm nerve endings.  I had been telling all my doctors that I thought something was wrong with my ribs and that something else might be causing pain.  ALL of them ignored me and left me in the crohn’s box, except this doctor.  He almost turned red faced and said, “You are not a guinea pig”  He could not speak strongly against the doctor that had referred me to him, but he was angry that this had gone on.

Then I began to see it clearly.  I had been “snared by the fowler”.  Snared by a lie I was ignorant of.  Even though I did not understand the scripture fully until I actually saw the snare in my life – God answered the prayer and exposed what I could not see.  Actually it was the Holy Spirit that led me to begin praying that line in the Psalm.

I was free from that medicine and diagnosis rather quickly and went on to look for the correct answers.  I was free from a seven year snare.  

That’s just a small example of how a scripture set me free.  “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”   John 8:32

God speaks in many ways.  I hope this will inspire you to pay attention to that “still small voice” or what seems to be a small leading.  Follow the Master, read His word with an open heart – and follow it through in faith believing.  Unless you have some large outstanding sin you are ignoring and not prayed about –  God will not withhold communication from you!  He is no respecter of persons.  And if there is a sin you need help getting rid of – talk to Him and ask for help.  He is good at removing obstacles.  He loves you and is on your side.  He longs to have a deep, sweet relationship with you.  He promises  “seek and you shall find”  “ask and knock”  Take a step in His direction and see what happens!  He will not withhold His voice from you!

God bless you – you are loved!!

GAZE – poetry

August 29, 2020

I look but I cannot see

My eyes are clouded with dust

The storms are dark up ahead

That’s when I must gaze on our trust

 

Daily my heart is bombarded

With sad thoughts of days gone by

Where did all the good thoughts go

To find them I really have to try

 

But they are there with certainty

Glistening and shining true

The things that God has done for me

The light comes shining through

 

Where is my rhyme and reason

It’s so hard to obtain

Life sometimes seems like a circle

Like an echoing refrain

 

The days are long and endless

I can’t help but wish for it’s end

But then there is that hopeful treasure

Of life’s best coming once again

 

Believing without seeing

Trust without the feels

Life by faith must be experienced

Then you know what is real

 

On Christ the solid rock I can stand

He is always true

Unmovable and unshakeable

Is how I know its You

 

So rocky and crazy the path ahead

One place my head can rest

That you will never leave me, no

I can lay my head on Your chest

 

So now I say a long needed prayer

Come to me Lord let me know

Thoughts of our beautiful heaven again 

And a joy in knowing I will go

In a dark and lonely room

With a fire in my heart

I close my eyes and think of You

 

With unquenchable hunger

I call out to You

You are the union I crave

 

One taste of Your love

One drink of Your soul

My quest will last forever

 

Though clouded by flesh

Surrounded by worldliness

Like a flower buried beneath the snow

 

The enemy rages to rip us apart

Moments are stolen, some slip away

But light always returns

And melts away the baracade that tries to keep us apart

 

And that thing deep inside

First contact never dies

It twists and turns and cries out to survive

 

With conquering force

Breaks down all the lies

And sets free the heart , the love and the cries

 

The candle inside -the Love of my life

So much more than a Savior

His essence abides

 

Jesus, Jesus

Love of my life

May Your heart know how I hunger for You tonight

Heaven Will Be Undivided

August 2, 2020

It is important to see things through the eyes of God, which can totally be found in the scripture if we read it for ourselves and ask His help to understand it.  Everything happening today was foretold by God.  Thousands of years in advance.  Because “ He knows the end from the beginning.”  He dwells outside of time.  That’s why it is so foolish for man to seek “mediums” and horoscopes and such to find “wisdom”  when God is Wisdom Himself.  He made everything and knows what it’s purpose is, and when it will come to an end.

The beauty is – that He has offered us through accepting what Jesus Christ did on the cross and accepting Him as our Lord – we are offered the promise of living in His kingdom – forever – where there are no more tears, pain, sorrow…..heaven.  And in the here and now – we will never be alone.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  We have good promises to stand on.  Having faith is believing what He said – no matter what you see.

God will protect us in this crazy time or take us home to His house at our appointed time.

As for where we are now…..it’s all in the Book.  Don’t be afraid to look.  

God will arise to judge the earth – but if we are in Him, in Christ – it will be okay for us.

Here is an interesting scripture about God “shaking” the earth.  For us – it is so our reliance will be on Him.  But for the world and the enemy of humanity, the devil, Satan.  He gets his way for only a moment in time – and people decide who their allegiance will be to.  Then for Satan and all those that have chosen to follow his ways……it will end…..and not well.  Choose life.  God rules heaven and earth and yes, we will have to live by His ways…..because a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.  And heaven is undivided.  

Isaiah 2:17-22

 

The arrogance of man will be brought low

and human pride humbled;

the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,

and the idols will totally disappear.

 

People will flee to caves in the rocks

and to holes in the ground

from the fearful presence of the Lord

and the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to shake the earth.

 

In that day people will throw away

to the moles and bats
