GOD STILL SPEAKS THROUGH DREAMS



Lord God, 
Lover of my soul, 
I surrender my pencil, 
please frame your message 
through my words.


Upon waking from the dream, the battle details weren’t forthcoming. The Holy Spirit wanted me to know that I was engaged in battle, but that wasn’t His focus. My immediate focus was on the battle. Who or what was I battling...and why? However, the message that the Lord wanted me to see, as I chewed on my pencil...was in the remembered details! Once He re-centered me... tabernacled my spiritual eyes through my pencil, the battle fell away; the details that remained... were His intended message. 



I was able to SEE
through KINGDOM EYES

TRUTH is STRANGER THAN FICTION . . .THE UNTOLD STORY



'Beyond any human being I’ve met'


Sitting down at my computer to write a new post, Google stares back at me, as I attempt to sign in. This is largely how I hear what has already traveled the world. News to me ... is old news to the everyone else. I'm not connected to TV, news-feeds, Facebook or all those social outlets and connecting apps. I choose not to. 


I was immediately drawn to the human interest story of Maya Hughes and Tom Perriello - past Congressman and current executive director of the Open Society Foundations’ U.S. Programs. Just in case you haven't heard... I'll place a link to the story at the end.  


15 years ago... our country was in a different place. This story wouldn't have even had the technology to go viral as it has today. But beyond that, we lived in a safer place. Today, Tom's fears of then being accused of sex trafficking... traveling with a 5 yr old stranger... without any documentation... would have caused more than a slight delay. 


Sex - trafficking is so understated. It happens so innocently... so easily. I just want to say that for me,  Tom Perriello has earned the badge of 


TRUSTWORTHINESS 
with children.

Thanks Be To God For His Indescribable Gift
























Exclusive Christmas Card from Joshua's Christian Stores featuring RonDiCianni's 'Simeon's Moment' portrait from THE GIFT ~ Crossway Books 1994


"For my eyes have seen your Salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for Glory to your people Israel." ~ Luke 2:30-32



Artist's Notes (source)
"Imagine that moment! It has to rank at the top of any Christian's list of dreams —to hold the very Son of God in your arms with the understanding of His purpose for coming. This is what Simeon had been promised, and here He is. It was the final exclamation point to fulfill his heart's desire.

THE KISS OF HIS PRESENCE



 ....in the midst of a
COLD and CLOUDY WINTER DAY. 


Christmas Eve day 2018



The dream was not a good dream. It was hugely fearful. I awakened trembling and whimpering like a little child. I seriously struggled to catch my breath. The Lord woke me up to rescue me from the dream's evil intention against me. But He wanted me to write about it to gain His revelation...to walk in understanding and healing. His rod and His staff... They comfort me. He is my Faithful Shepherd.... In Him... I have everything I need. I wrote for 2 hours...  Non stop!

UNDER THE SHADOW of HIS WINGS



We can't normally be encouraging when we ourselves are in the shadow of the valley. But, the valley trains us for our calling. Maybe someone famous has previously said those words. Either way, the lord most assuredly spoke them over me today. 


Today, found me in the Shadow

The 'Sweetspot'...A Healing Place



I've been missing from these pages, but not missing in action. Far from it. I'm returning with a new heart, new message... for a new season. Seasons come and seasons go. This is life as it should be. If we find ourselves moving between the seasons without change...we are not growing, but slowing dying. Jesus Christ came that we might have LIFE and live abundantly from season to season....regardless of the elements of circumstance.



In the past 4 years of not posting, God has patiently ...sometimes laboriously ...poured Himself into me...over and over and over. Four years is a long time at my age. I'm not getting any younger. Yet, in these years, I've gained new LIFE. He's literally breathed into me...adding years to my life. This will become apparent as I scribe future posts on how He did this for me...with me, as I surrendered my old heart to His 'Operating Room'.


I needed a heart transplant
