2021 already… Time is flying.. I hope 2021 finds you well!
I restarted this blog last year believing The Lord wanted me to share prophetic insight, dreams, visions and words He gave me… and I did that for the most part. Well, the ones He let me release. There were so many He didn’t let me release. I often wondered why He told me, showed me things and never let me release them. So I finally asked him why aren’t you letting me release these words and He said...”I just want you to know for now what you are hearing from me is correct.” There were some crazy spot on words but they were for teaching me… not for sharing publicly. Also, there were many instances that my knower knew what He told me was correct… when your knower knows it just knows! BUT….it didn’t happen like I thought it would. I for sure learned to listen and be patient and to persevere when things did not go according to my time line.. LOL. I’ve been self employed for many many years. When things need to get done…they get done! I am results driven! So I learned a lot this past year. I’m truly grateful of that time. So this past year was a year of teaching and I appreciate every bit of time that I spent with Him. It was priceless time spent with My father.
I’m sure people are wondering what is going on with all this craziness of the elections…Yes, He talked to me about President Trump…we’ll save that for another day. I will say this…. It’s not about one man even tho that man is called by God…Keep focus on what God is doing instead of who He is doing it through!! Can I get an Amen?? 🙂
You can read here what He did say…
He showed me so many things…the world pandemic..His exact words were “There is going to be a flu like world pandemic”,

He gave me vision after vision, crazy dreams and a brand new experience for me… aromas in the spirit. WOW! Go back and check out some of the words. He’s showing me there is so much more to them. They all seem to fit exactly what is happening NOW. I will write more about them as I can.
Last year was a very personal visitation of talking and listening to God… it was messy at times… lots of tears, frustrations, anger, fear tried to make an appearance too but He squashed that pretty quick. But there was way more laughter, study, hugs, time alone with Him, blessings, glory, His presence coming to visit out of the blue (sitting at my desk working) when all I could do was stop and worship Him…POWERFUL, times of surrender, tears of joy and wonderment, discernment… etc… and love grew in my life for myself, husband, family and others..it created in me a deep hunger for more of God in my life and whatever He wanted to do… It was beautifully messy :)… I believe that is where He wants all of us….craving more of him…. His word says…
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
I truly don’t have the words to express to you 2020 with God. Amazing is overly used. Grateful is an understatement. Deep would be accurate but still not big enough. There is not enough appreciation I can express. I guess I really don’t need to because we are so close now that He just knows…and I take comfort in that…in Him:)
The reason I’m writing again now is simply it’s my next step. To share, encourage, prophesy what The Lord is saying. Last year was preparation this year is moving into a new normal. Even tho I’ve been serving The Lord in gifts for quite awhile He is always up to something new. So I have no idea what it will look like but what I’ve learned last year is it probably won’t be anything like what I would think it will look like…sound like or smell like…LOL and that is OK with me!!
He actually gave me a dream last year in March…
I was walking down our hallway… there was a white front door… there was all types and sizes of shoes lined up on the wall, they were ready to go… one pair was highlighted… a pair of yellow converse… I knew they were mine… I reached down to get them (I didn’t own any)… That’s it..I woke up. So I researched what stood out to me. (Be sure you use reputable Christian references.)
White – Love, Spirit of The Lord; Holy Power; Purity; Light; Righteousness; Reverance
Door – Invitation, Transition, Gateway..it was closed so it’s not a “now” dream (patience).
Hallway – Transition , beginning of something new, spiritual enlightnement, new opportunities.
Shoes – Preparation and training, given to walk in peace fulfill the task at hand.
Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 20:24 A man’s steps are from the LORD; how then can man understand his way?
Yellow – Isaiah 11:2 Spirit of Understanding, soul, hope, gift of God, light, joy, happiness, renewed mind, courage, family.
Isaiah 11:2 And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
WOW!! I know this is crazy and that’s what I love about it. God is not “normal”I experienced every one of these things. God knows what He’s doing. This was a very personal dream. It was an invitation to me from God. He was inviting me on a new journey. 2020 was more preperation for me.
I am so excited for what 2021 brings. It definitely hasn’t begun as I would want but I fully trust God in what He is doing!
God is talking, this I know, so when He talks to you in what ever way He chooses keep pressing in…pray, listen.. and journal!!
Believe me, you think you’ll remember…but you won’t. Write everything down. You will be so glad you did.
God is doing a new thing. Take the time to spend with Him. He wants you to join Him during this time. Everyone has a walk with The Lord sometimes that walk with God involves more praying (conversing) and listening than doing… At this moment He has choosen to speak to me prophetically and to grow me even deeper in his gift of prophecy. I invited and opened myself to Him to be His vessel. Someone who is completely sold out to Him. Yes, I know I will look and sound crazy at times. There will be and even now that I will continue to stand when others aren’t… and that’s ok!
Just for fun I looked up the meaing of converse (I was thinking shoe)
- engage in conversation. Similar: talk speak chat have a conversation have a talk have a discussion discourse confer parley consult with each other
- conversation.”his converse at such seasons was always elevating”—LOVE this!!!
OMG what can I say… this says it all to me. A dream of an invitaion to talk to and listen to Almighty God. The dream tells me He’s communicating to me in deep deep different ways and I need to trust what I hear is from Him and correct. He is preparing me for a time of transition into a new journey and a new walk with Him!
Why shoes? You ask, because I have a thang for shoes.. all kinds of shoes, from Old Navy flip flops to Neiman Marcus Manolo Blahniks LOL 🙂 He speaks to us in a language we understand or what gets our attention… funny huh? I’m sharing my story not to boast but to say… God is talking to you too and He is preparing all who want to participate with Him on His journey 🙂
God speaks in incredibly personal ways to each of us. What is He saying to you?
Pray with me.. Father God thank you for desiring to converse with us and invite us on your journey. I know you are doing amazing new things today and you want to partner with us. We come to you surrendered, prepared and ready to receive all that you have for us. We are deeply grateful for your love grace and mercy to call us as you do. I ask for us all to have eyes that see and ears to hear YOU. Our minds are focused, our hands are open, our feet are ready and our hearts are postured on you..Come Lord Jesus ..lets talk. 🙂
