God’s Peace and Promises 3-11-20

IMG_0056 (1)

I found it hard today not to get caught up in this craziness all around.  I think I even scared a couple people myself.  I thought this can’t happen .  I headed to the store so my granddaughter could pick out her birthday present.  I looked up and said a little prayer.

 

While in the store, an elderly lady that was bent over in stature kept going through her purse to find her money.  I quietly asked the clerk to ring her things with mine.  I don’t normally tell these things but God had a purpose for this.  The sweetest little lady I’ve ever seen put her arms around me and told me God is going to bless me a million fold.  I told her He already has.  This was his instruction to me of what I need to be mindful of.

 

I looked up as I was driving back home and saw an angel in a cloud.  As she glided with the wind I saw she had wings and her hands were in praying position.  It was all I could do to hold it together.  God’s peace flooded over me like a river.  His peace is there for the asking and remember to pray without ceasing.  He gives His angels charge over us.

 

I was then reminded of a vision-like dream I had October 6, 2018.  I found myself holding onto an iron farm triangle bell.  I looked down and knew if I didn’t hang on I would fall.  I looked back up and heard ‘hold on’!  I knew the three corners were God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

 

I just thanked the Lord and praised His Holy Name for letting me see Him again today.

Eye of the Storm 2-28-18

IMG_2794

This dream from 2-28-18 was very powerful.  It told of things to come, but the last part of the dream gave so much encouragement.  The battle is already won.

The dream began with me riding in a small boat.  I kept to my lane on the flooded road and boats coming in the opposite direction kept to their lane as we would in a car.  As I reached anything sticking up out of the water, as a fence post, I would place money or food on it so anyone coming along behind me that needed it could take it.

I stopped at a multi-story abandoned building that had been set up for use because of this flood.

The first room I went to had a couple young girls in it and they showed me the small tags on necklaces they had been given so they could get food.  They were not at all worried and were very content.  The numbers were four digits.  The first one started with 36 but I couldn’t remember the rest.  The other one was 4760 and it stood out to me.  This was not the mark, but it showed me the famine after the floods.

There were a few people in the next room.  It was being used to make frozen pizza or anything quick someone may come in and need.  My neighbor was discouraged because she wasn’t getting much money at all for the food.  I asked if my youngest grandson had given much and she shook her head no.  I told her I’d be back and bring her more money.  I looked down at the desk in front of her and saw a basket of keys.  I knew they belonged to the taxis on the street that could not run.

The next room was full of red-headed graduates in their caps and gowns.  One was to my left standing with my family that is in the educational field, good Godly mentors.  That graduate was excited to make bishop and was going to enjoy his calling.  He was so relaxed and friendly with a sweet smile of contentment on his face.  The others to the right stood without educators.   They were not content with their calling of bishop and were anxiously stressed to move beyond that.  Much later I read Titus 1:7 – ‘For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.’  Those standing alone did not receive the leading and education from the Holy Spirit that was indwelled in the one so content.

I left this dream for another where I appeared to be riding on white caps on an angry sea.  I was not afraid, just trying to figure out where I was going.  I soon saw what appeared to be a sink hole.  As the angry sea churned faster and faster I began to move faster and faster.  I found myself actually coming up on the eye of a hurricane.  The picture above is exactly what I was riding on.  The eye of a hurricane is the most peaceful place to be.  Get into the eye with Jesus and don’t focus on the storms.

May 2, 2018, I Heard ‘things will never be the same again’.

I asked for scripture after my dream and was given Isaiah 29.  I was later led to Acts 20.  I pray we walk in faith without fear and give God all the praise and glory for He alone is worthy.

The first time I posted this is earlier on this site and includes commentary that connects scripture with dream.  Thank you

 

Protection dream from 4-28-16

IMG_2673

On April 28, 2016, I had a dream where I was standing in the woods and looking up at the sky in the distance. That part of the sky was over a clearing such as a city or special area. Many helicopters came over it like military helicopters. They went into formation of a circle around the cleared area with their lights shining outward in protection. It was a perfect circle and the lights covered every bit of ground outside that area. They were hovering, protective, strong, united, focused.

I later heard a girl speak of dreaming an angel was leading people to a safe place and she heard the word Goshen. When I heard that word this dream came back to me. I felt the helicopters were the Army of God watching over a place of safety for Christians, or watching over Christians where they are. Goshen means a land or place of plenty and comfort.
Exodus 8:22 KJV – And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

Being alone with the Lord at this time will benefit us so that we can hear His voice for instructions and feel His spirit for encouragement.  He tells us in scripture that He holds us with His righteous right hand.  He never said that He will at some point stop doing that.  God bless and keep you as He calms your spirit in times of trouble.

Isaiah 41:10 KJV – Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Bridge over Troubled Waters 3-4-20

IMG_0459 (1)

As I woke this morning I felt a burden in my spirit.  The thought went through my head that God’s people are panicking.  Then I kept hearing the song that has been on my mind lately ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’.  Sometimes I think that some of the lyrics in these old songs were given to artists from God.  They will say that they didn’t know where the words came from because they just sat down and within ten minutes there was a song.  I’m talking about the songs that lift us up and give us hope.

We need to get out of the troubled waters and step onto the bridge.  Jesus is the bridge in times of trouble.

When I began getting messages frequently from the Lord in 2015 regarding warnings, I would always have a message  in between of His love and protection.  God does not give us the spirit of fear.

I am strongly led to share some of those dreams of protection here today.

I was on a bridge or dam with my youngest granddaughter in the back seat.  There were so many tornadoes whipping around us.  I knew my vehicle would be taken up into the air for a minute but it would be gently put back down.  And that is how it happened.  I looked back at my granddaughter and she was very calm as she looked from the tornadoes to me with not a flinch in her eyes.  As I came to the end of the bridge, the water had risen in the road so high that I knew I couldn’t drive.  I could go to the left or the right, but the water rapidly flowed to the right.  I knew if I took the right that the water would take us into its current, but we would be okay.  I made the turn to the right and felt the water gently lift my vehicle.  We rode along with the current and we were fine.  March 2016

I had another dream where I was with my family where we had been vacationing.  We had actually gathered the children and grandchildren to be together for a week in the summer.  We did that for two summers.  In the dream, I was standing on the shoreline watching the grandchildren play in the water.  There was a park in the water where you could crawl through tunnels of glass and see underwater.  As I looked out on the horizon, I saw a huge wave coming at us.  We all got in our vehicles and followed each other along the shoreline.  As the wave hit I did see a person swept away but we were fine.  We were in convertibles and the water never touched us.  We made it to a safe place indoors where I stood and watched all my family seated around a very long table.  We have not been back to this location since a hurricane caused so much devastation.  2-18-17

Among other warnings, I received a dream where I could hear everything outside being torn apart.  I heard metal and debris flying through the air as it collided with each other.  I went to the bedroom to open the blinds and look out at this destruction.  Just before I reached the blinds I was pulled back and found myself on the bed face down.  I struggled to get up saying, “I have to make sure everyone in my house is safe”!  I couldn’t move but suddenly through my mind’s eye I could see my youngest grandchild was asleep in the bed next to me and he was covered with the comforter.  After that dream I saw where people had battery operated lights that they were so excited about, but I knew it was a false light.  And I could see the whispers and see the text messages where people were being very hateful to Christians.  But we were protected and we had nothing to fear.  As I drove the grandchildren to school the next morning, I kept thinking how that must have been the enemy that held me down and I wasn’t prepared at all.  Then a calm came over me and I heard in my spirit ‘that was me’.  It was my Lord and Savior protecting us all the time.  8-16-18

As I have had storms in my life, I open the bible and I am at Isaiah 43:2.  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

There is more but I will share this for now.  Please be encouraged.  We are in the palms of His hands.  Give the Lord thanks in all things, pray without ceasing, and let the Holy Spirit calm you.

 

The Secret Place – 3-3-20

The Secret Place – 3-3-20

This morning as I sat in the prayer swing listening to the gentle rain drip off the eaves of the porch, I was prompted to find a lesson on you tube. I went to Joanie Stahl and scrolled to the bottom as if I knew what I was looking for. I had finished devotions and prayer but I didn’t want to leave this place. I mean that more spiritually than physically.

I clicked on the four-part lesson entitled ‘The Lonely Walk of the Saint’. As I listened, it took me back to September, 2015. I knew at that time that I was being called into the prayer closet. Something would wake me every night to get alone and pray. The way I’ve always told it is that the Holy Spirit came down and we had prayer meeting. So many things were placed upon my heart to repent of and through remorseful flowing tears, I did. And instead of wanting to avoid this time every night, I welcomed it. I didn’t want to take anything for allergies or anything that would make me feel sleepy because I didn’t want to miss that time with the Lord. An aspirin makes me sleepy. Even now, I have a slot of time during most nights that I wake and leave the comfort of my bed and I go commune with God. It may be a conversation through tears and it may be a silence of just knowing He is there. I came to realize the Bible is alive. Words will jump out at me when reading and speak to my heart.

One time in particular, I awoke to a vision. A scar-faced warrior was readying his bow. I was looking outside what appeared to be a watch tower where you see those small square windows. When this warrior went away, I saw Jesus. He stood outside this window with his arm outstretched to me. I knew He was saying to come out of her. Later in the day, I saw a short clip of a movie as I was flipping channels. This movie was called Exodus: gods and kings. I saw Ramses speaking to Moses, and Ramses had that same scarred face that I had seen in the vision. I then saw Moses tell the people to put the blood over their doors. I began seeing the verse to go inside and shut thy door for a little while until this indignation passed.

I began seeing and hearing from the Lord almost daily through dreams, visions, and words. I had some of that rarely in my life, but not like this. I had asked one day what Spirit is this, and as I prepared dinner I heard behind me, “Benevolent”. I swung around and said what? I heard “Benevolent Spirit”. I had to look it up.

He was showing me that we are now here. All the warnings in the bible of the end times, we are here. He also showed me in the warnings that He is our comfort and under His wing we rest. Our faith has to kick in now. He is our rest. He has shown me His protection in the storms.

I take Him with me in everything I do since that time. He is such a part of me that I am always speaking to Him or listening for His voice. I wake awaiting to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know He will speak if there is anything to be said and He will let me know when to pull back and remain silent. I have learned the hard way. I have learned the trouble I can create if I don’t listen to this. I have learned a lot of my lessons the hard way. I was a hard-headed person, but I allowed Him to crack this nut because I wanted to walk with Him.

I have learned that when something is placed on my heart to do, it is the Holy Spirit doing that. I may never know why He wants it done and that is okay. I did find out much later why something was placed on my heart one time. I fully believe He showed me why so that I would remember that prompting I had to do something and that I was carrying out His answer to someone else’s prayer. I had given a person a gift certificate to thank him for something he had been doing to help my family. The gift certificate was to a grocery store. I thought maybe I need to give a card that could be used anywhere but that grocery store card kept standing out to me. I went through with that prompting. This person told a family member not long ago that he had been praying and crying out to the Lord the night before because he had no food. I had no idea.

So many times when you feel led to do something, please consider that God could be using you to answer a prayer. He could be using you to put food on a person’s table when they had none. Not that you are so good to do that, but that you answered God’s prompting to do that. It is Him alone that is so good. You allowed yourself to be used by Him and you don’t expect to ever know the reason why because that does not matter. If you asked Him, He may tell you, ‘what is that to you’? Not to be rude, but it really is none of our business.

The only reason I found out why months later is so I would know to always follow that prompting. Don’t ever feel unsure about yeah I may do that sometime or no I don’t know them that well. This person told someone that story through tears because for him that was such a special thing that God would even consider answering his prayer. When I had given the gift certificate, he just said okay and walked away. I thought, ‘well he wasn’t very appreciative’. That was my flesh. I had no idea he was so on the verge of tears and so shocked that God would even consider him that he had to walk away.

It is all about our faith in trusting God’s plan in these last days. We cannot fear His warnings and say we have faith. And if there is fear in the land, then know that God is at work to send them to their knees to look up. We carry out what He needs for us to do with the calm of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Repost of Protection from 3-11-18

main-qimg-86b6193c3c4fe9dd683b247693fba68e

I had called this Deception B4 Rapture.  Yes, that was true, but the main thing was the light to get what we need from while walking in the darkness of deception before the rapture.  It stayed on my mind to repost this and this morning two other sisters in Christ had similar dreams with the same meaning so that was my confirmation.

On March 11, 2018, I dreamed I was walking with two grandchildren. We had left some people that were going to sleep. (There are many going to sleep these days.) We walked into a land that was something like Alice in Wonderland. We would meet creatures or see abandoned rides like in an abandoned theme park. The land was dark and dreary. There was no color anywhere, and nothing was as it seemed. We would see a light in an abandoned home and would be able to go in for food or rest, whatever we needed, then move on. Sometimes we would find a ride that was functioning and could get on it like a slide to go faster or something we could sit on to move quicker, and there would be another light in an abandoned home that we could go into, then move on again. There were others on rides but no one laughing. I would pick up trash here and there but there was no place to dispose of it, and nobody else cared or wanted to talk about it. It was as if they just rather ignore it.
I saw the grandchildren’s mother and she was trying to tell me something. She passed away years ago so I knew she wasn’t supposed to be there. Nothing there was real, except the light in the abandoned homes.  If I had not known her face before me then was a deception, I could have been led into another direction.
This land was full of deception and people I saw were like the old saying – Asleep. They just hadn’t laid down yet.
The children and I were separated a bit, but as I began to walk toward what I felt was the center of this place, I saw the children again. They were walking toward the center and there were a few others that made it. We were finally out of that dark and dreary place of deception.
When we got to the center, it was very colorful. We looked up as the sky changed. It appeared as if we were standing at the bottom of a pool and looking up to the sun beyond the water’s surface. There weren’t many of us gathered there, but I saw the lady in front of me as her arms left her side and flew upward, then she was gone. It was as if she were shot out of a cannon. Then a small person went up and the water or air made a swirl behind her in the shape of a heart. Someone close by yelled ‘that was one of the angels’! I believe they may have been speaking of the children but I don’t know. Then my arms left my side and flew upward, and I was gone. I felt myself going very fast, then I woke. I know we will meet Jesus in the clouds as scripture says.
On March 12, 2018, my dreams were all about rapture. One door would open and I would hear ‘almost home’. Another door would open and I would hear ‘catch away’. I dreamed all night of rapture but the only memory I have of that night were the doors and what I would hear as they opened.
I thought I had heard the phrase ‘catch away’ before but couldn’t remember. I looked it up to make sure it was biblical. I found it in Matthew 13, specifically 19-21. A commentary said that some may have started out as being an excited Christian and just fell asleep or abandoned it. Maybe the hardship or persecution was too much. The scripture explained the dreams.
The main thing for the body of Christ is to stand strong. I kept thinking when God’s children are gone, there will be no light left. The only light we have in us is the light of Jesus.
On April 15, I saw a comment about we are in the time of deception. This dream is symbolic of God’s protection and provision when we went into the lighted, abandoned homes. Because of that we made it through and persevered. Our ears and eyes were open to His leading and He led us out. He took us home. I’ve had more on that and have seen more on that so it’s being called to our attention. May God bless and keep you in all your ways as you lean on Him with hope, faith, and trust.

The Dark Road to Recovery – 12-17-19

IMG_0044 (1)

I have been praying for a young lady very dear to my heart.  I have tried so hard to figure out just where things keep going wrong.  She seems to be headed in the right direction and the next thing I know, she’s veered off again.  She never quite finishes what she needs to get her on the right path, and it is so crucial that she does because this is not just about her.  She has precious children that need her. My heart aches for them, and for her.

On December 17, 2019, I believe the Lord showed me in a dream what is happening with her and so many others.  In the dream, she was being driven in a car at night.  She was in the front passenger seat and it was her side of the car that I was seeing.  I knew that everything was going well.

Suddenly, she stopped the car.  It was like she couldn’t stand it; she just had to do it.  She got out of the car and began walking toward the direction she had come.  As she walked in the darkness, a person came up to her, then another, then another.  I watched as she had a small group there with her now, but she was in danger.  None of them had her best interest in mind.  They were out for self no matter what it caused or cost her.

As soon as my eyes opened, I knew she had allowed the Holy Spirit to guide her.  That was the driver and the safety of the car.  She only lets that go so far and she has to take control and do it her way.  The Holy Spirit won’t interfere with free will.   So she goes back and thinks things will be different now.  Her old acquaintances she calls friends come around and she’s so happy to see them.  It gives her a sense of home and comfort, but she doesn’t see it’s not a home and the comfort is short lived.  Then she finds herself back where she was and an outcast to family and true friends and without her children.  Now she has used all the excuses she had to use others to help her.  Everyone is wise now and no one will listen.

When we lose everything, we have no way to look but up.  I continue to pray now with more hope than ever, but that’s all the help I give.  I will be there for the children, but the end of her has to come so she will say ‘Jesus take the wheel’.  She will be grateful for the safety of that car – and for the driver.

If this is you out there, I pray for you too.  And I especially pray for the people that care so much for you.  I pray they can let go of the situation and hold on to the prayers until you lose yourself.  There is a driver and a car waiting for you, but He’s a gentleman.  He won’t take away your free will.  Don’t ask God or family ‘why won’t you help me’, but ask yourself ‘why won’t you help me’.  He will lead you where you dare to go alone and He will always be with you.  The word REPENT means to turn away from, so repent and turn away from what is hurting you and ask for help from the One that can.

More than once in my life, I have opened the bible to these words: (I usually use KJV but felt I should use NIV on these.)

Isaiah 43:2 NIV – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Haggai 1:13 NIV – Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave this message of the Lord to the people:  “I am with you,” declares the Lord.

And never forget to pray for strength.  I’m an old lady raising grandchildren so I have done it many times and I have never been disappointed.  The One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)  When you resist the devil he will flee (James 4:7)  He will protect you like in the car I saw and it will be your hiding place from those wanting to harm you.  (Psalm 32:7)

So cry out to Him today; He hears you and will deliver you from all your troubles. (Psalm 34:17)  Forget the former things and don’t dwell on the past.  He will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

1 John 5:4-5 – For everyone born of God overcomes the world.  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
