Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]…
Beloved, it is time to soar. Be lifted in the Spirit. Allow My breath to cause you to take flight. Soar with Me, beloved. Rise in My Spirit, and, with eagle-like vision, see. I have so much more in store than you can begin to imagine.
And you’ll find that from the highest heights your perspective is changed. Suddenly you have vision and can better see what lies ahead. So wait on Me. Be refreshed, restored, and strengthened. And then, beloved, rise. It’s time to soar. Continue reading “Time to Soar”
Ephesians 5:26 (VOICE) …He gave Himself up completely to make her His own, washing her clean of all her impurity with water and the powerful presence of His word.
Beloved, allow My Word to wash over you. Take the time to soak in it. Meditate and saturate. Be washed clean, refreshed, and renewed. Allow it to hydrate and soften you, let it remove and restructure areas that are dry and brittle.
And in the same way water refuses to be held back – managing to find cracks and crevices, and then over time changing the shape of even the hardest surfaces, yield to the life-changing flow and be transformed.
1 John 4:18 (TPT) Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts…
Beloved, fear is abolished in the presence of My perfect love. You no longer need to fear punishment, for even though I chasten those I love, I do so in love. If I wound, I heal. And if I break, I bind. And even then beloved, I only do so when it is necessary and I AM with you through it all.
You are cherished and loved. I AM not looking for things to reprimand you for nor seeking reason to punish you. I AM a good Father, and I love My children. Receive that love and be made whole.
1 Corinthians 12:25 (KJV) That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.
Care for your Body, beloved. Whether you realize it or not, when one of you hurts, the whole is effected. Pause to minister. Pause to tend. Give help where help is needed. You are to be known by your love, and you are called to love like Me.
Be intentional to give grace. Be intentional to operate with patience. Be intentional to reject offense. Walk in love. Walk in unity. Walk in peace. Cultivate that which is good. Care for and strengthen the Body, for it is your Body, beloved, and well worth the effort. Continue reading “Care for Your Body”
Philippians 2:13 (TPT) God will continually revitalize you, implanting within you the passion to do what pleases him.
Beloved, trust that I have equipped you for every task you’re given. I will not send you out unprepared, and I AM always with you – refreshing and revitalizing you. I have given you all you need.
Focus your passion and complete that which has been set before you. For I give you not just the strength and ability to succeed, but the passion and drive to do so. Unleash your passion and do that which is pleasing to Me. Focus your attentions on the Kingdom and My glory, and let your zeal be contagious and unfaltering.
John 10:27-28 (VOICE) My sheep respond as they hear My voice; I know them intimately, and they follow Me. I give them a life that is unceasing, and death will not have the last word. Nothing or no one can steal them from My hand.
I AM still speaking today. I paid the price for your freedom and your healing. It was Our joy to do so and My Son lay His life down willingly and without hesitation. Shrug off feelings of inadequacy and shame, and allow My truth – My words – to mold and shape you. Respond to your Maker. My sheep know My voice and another they will not follow.
Creation speaks My name. I AM your Creator and I spoke you into being. The echoes of My voice resound in your heartbeats. When I speak, you cannot help but respond, your very DNA recognizes its Maker. You must align. Your cells and organs must obey My word. I speak life over you and everything in you MUST take action.
Refuse to give the enemy any hold over you when your freedom came at so high a cost. Trust the plan of the One who loves you, the One who created you, the One who is sovereign. I have deemed you worthy – worth the price, worth My time, worth My love, worth My effort, worthy of My grace. It is sufficient for you. Receive, beloved.
Psalm 68:8 (VOICE) The whole world trembled! The sky poured down rain at the power of Your presence; even Mount Sinai trembled in Your presence, the presence of the True God, the God of Israel.
Beloved, never underestimate the power of My presence. It causes darkness to tremble, the dead to come to life, it brings manifold change and tremendous breakthroughs. I AM God Almighty – El Gibbor, the Mighty God. My presences changes things. My presence will change you.
As you stand basking in My overwhelming love, allowing My joy to refresh and heal you – how can you not come away changed? Make the time, be intentional, and soak Me in. Allow Me to saturate you in the oil of My Spirit.
Then prepare, beloved. For the power of My presence brings forth response. It brings about action. You cannot know Me and spend time with Me and stay the same. It’s not that a response is required as much as it is inevitable.
So prepare to take new ground. Pour out your fresh oil with the knowledge that I AM always pouring back into you – just step into My presence and be filled – heart and hands open, beloved, receive from Me – then go forth. Expand the Kingdom.
Psalm 3:5 (VOICE) I lie down at night and fall asleep. I awake in the morning—healthy, strong, vibrant—because the Eternal supports me.
Beloved, I AM with you always. Rest in Me. As you yield to Me even in your sleep, I will meet you there for times of refreshing and impartation. Be ready to receive. Come with your heart prepared to meet with Me. Truly you cannot begin to imagine all that I want to share with you there, beloved.
Be ready to be commissioned. Be ready to be mantled. Be ready to be radically and completely healed and transformed. Come ready to lower your guard (you don’t need it with Me anyway), and your logic won’t help you here – My ways are not your ways. Simply trust and yield. Take Me at My word and receive.
This silk came out of a church service a couple weeks back. We have a number of river/water silks already, but God showed me He wanted something new. It started stirring up during the “I Rest in You” song mentioned in the letter (you can hear us singing it in the background on this video) and below is what came forth!
He had me make silks for both ladies who wrote the song and a pair of spin wings for myself. You’ll see some of the pics/video of those throughout. The name of this silk is River of God. The colors in it are: Continue reading “Silk: River of God”
Inspired by the Gateway:61 song which was played during worship this past week (here’s a clip of me worshipping as they sang it). I inadvertently shared this same silk again once I had pictures of the worship leader (whose song inspired this) wearing her crinkle silk of the same style! The name of this silk is River of God. The colors in it are:
- Light turquoise representing refreshing waters
- Cayman island green representing river of God
- Emerald green representing healing waters
- Turquoise representing rivers of living water
- Deep dark blue representing deep waters
