Psalm 18:2 (TPT) You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet, like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress, my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape, my tower of rescue where none can reach me. My secret strength and shield around me, you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside, always the champion of my cause.
Beloved, I AM your firm foundation, your covering and protector, the One who nourishes your soul. Abide in Me. Rest in Me. Like a tree planted by rivers of living water, I will refresh you and give you life abundantly as you tarry with Me. May your roots go deep.
Trust that My covering will protect you from the harshness of your environment, and know that My Son’s rays will warm you and coax forth life. I declare that you will flourish, and My word will never return void, it accomplishes all it sets out to do. Flourish, beloved. Covered in My love and watered by My Spirit, flourish.
Isaiah 43:2 (TLB) When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up—the flames will not consume you.
Beloved, regardless of the trials you face, I AM always with you and will never leave you. The waters that feel as though they might drown you cannot rend you from My grip. Release yourself to Me and allow the water of My Spirit to saturate you with the depths of My love.
Focus on My heart for you. Refuse to be distracted by the troubles and worries on every side for My love is larger than, grander than, bigger than anything else. Let it fill you and overwhelm you. As you’re lost in the ocean of My love everything else will pale in comparison. Allow the magnitude of all I AM to right-size everything else for, beloved, everything is small when compared to the vastness of Me. There is nothing to fear. You will not drown nor will flames overtake you, only the beauty of My love will overwhelm you, and that is a safe place to rest.
Song of Solomon 4:15 (VOICE) My bride, you are a fountain in a garden, a well of life-giving water flowing down from Lebanon.
Beloved, you are a well of life – deep and true – your capacity great, your water fresh and pure. Allow the life within you to gurgle up and overflow bringing life to all those around you. Tender shoots of green and brilliant colors of wildflower life surrounding you.
Feed on Me in our times alone. Allow Me to nourish and replenish you, beloved, that your well will never run dry. Wait on Me. Soak in My presence. Abide in Me. Allow My Spirit to overtake you and saturate your soul.
Revelation 22:1 (VOICE) My heavenly guide brought me to the river of pure living waters, shimmering as brilliantly as crystal. It flowed out from the throne of God and of the Lamb,
Beloved, My living water flows fresh and clear from heaven – raining down on you. Raise your arms and open your heart and receive My flow. Drink deeply, beloved, and allow the refreshing, life-giving flow to saturate every area of your being and your life. You are a beautiful vessel, beloved, let Me fill you to overflowing.
And then, beloved, pour it forth on the dry and cracked people and places and situations around you. You are a conduit – a carrier of Me – to a lost and dying world who desperately need a touch from Me. Be that touch. Minister My love, My healing, My refreshing, My living water and bring forth life and life abundantly all around you.
John 15:4 (GW) Live in me, and I will live in you. A branch cannot produce any fruit by itself. It has to stay attached to the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit unless you live in me.
Beloved, increase comes from Me. Stay firmly rooted. Life can only come from the source. Draw from Me. Drink deeply from My living water – the flow of My Spirit – be saturated in My presence and allow that rich, life-giving atmosphere to bring forth much fruit.
Deep wells pouring forth, gurgling up from deep within you as My Spirit stirs and hovers over you as you rest and dwell in My presence. Behold, I AM doing a new thing, will you not know it? [I sense Him smiling as He asks that as though He knows already of COURSE you will want to know it.] New life – increase – is coming. Increase is here. Continue reading “Increase Comes Through Me”

Psalm 78:20 (VOICE) He split open the rock, and water gushed out; streams and rivers were overflowing!…
Beloved, I AM the Life Giver. Just as the rain saturates the ground causing it to flourish, so I will pour out My life-giving flow of Holy Spirit over you that you might flourish and bring forth life and life more abundantly. I am even now saturating you. Receive!
No heart is too broken or cracked, no heart is too hardened or dead for Me. Have I not brought forth life-giving water from a rock? Nothing is too hard for Me. I will saturate you. I will overflow your spirit with My own. I will bring forth life in the desert places because I AM the giver of life and I love to see you flourish.
Luke 17:1-3 (GW) …how horrible it will be for the person who causes someone to lose his faith! It would be best for that person to be thrown into the sea with a large stone hung around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to lose his faith. So watch yourselves!…
Beloved, be mindful of your actions and how they affect others. Yes, you each have personal responsibility for your choices, but you do not want to be the one to cause someone to stumble or fall away just as you don’t want someone to cause you to stumble or fall away.
Therefore it is vital you be like Me. Love like Me. Accurately reflect Me. This cannot be stressed enough. I see the full impact of careless words and thoughtless actions, and if you could fully grasp the effect they have you would feel the weight of them. They are not to be taken lightly.
My Word is there to instruct you in how to live. Beloved, eat it as though you were a starving man. It is good and nourishing to your soul. It brings forth life and teaches you to be like Me. So immerse yourself. Be saturated by the water of My word that you might pour out that living water in a dry and thirsty land.
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
