not just communications

I have pondered long this word that my Lord shared with me perhaps two weeks ago now
are we writers? communicators? story tellers? messengers?
May I remember to surrender my pen, to His hand,

I ask of you
as a chosen one
a beloved one
consecrated, set apart
by Me and for Me
Let the words you share
be Mine
the stories told
My story
not mere imaginings
or retelling
not just creative art
No, I have a higher call
upon your life
and your work
it is not only “communications”
it is prophecy
Tell My people
That is why you are here
This is what I have gifted you for
I Will provide the words
your part is to share them
Spread My glory

Battle orders

Early morning prayer time
preparing for battle
I received His orders:

Arise and move into position
arise and arm yourselves
there is a battle that you do not see
but ask of Me
and I will increase your spiritual vision
ask of Me
and I will give you ears to hear

Arise and man your stations
I have a designated place
for each of you

Together you stand
together you fight
and I Am in your midst
yes, I Am at the core
your Defender
your Protector
your Provider
I Am the Lord strong and mighty

Arise and take courage
your God Is ever with you
like Gideon, declare My victory
Mine is a Kingdom of love
and the war has already been won

When I and all who are with me blow the trumpet (ram’s horn), 
then all around the camp you also blow the trumpets and shout,
 ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’

turn and return

early morning quiet time…

Behold, how good and pleasant it is 
when brothers dwell in unity!

yet I see factions
fractures, war
I see bitterness and strife
bickering, words of blame, shame

Look – it doesn’t take much illumination
to see not My reflection
but the face of evil

when the world looks at you
who shall they see?

turn then, turn
for I Am ever gracious
turn and return
for I Am the Lord of restoration
and I will cleanse you
and I will heal you
and I will teach you again
and again
and again
the better way
the way of love

this is the door to My heart
where I invite all of My children
to dwell, in one place
with one mind
and one spirit

together, in Me
of Me, for Me

next door

we are in a place
where beauty thrives
in even the driest of seasons

colours both delicate
and brilliant
highlight His glory
pointing to the next open door

I see what you’ve done. Now see what I’ve done. 
I’ve opened a door before you that no one can slam shut. 
You don’t have much strength, I know that; 
you used what you had to keep my Word. 
You didn’t deny me when times were rough.

at a fork

we have come
once again
to a time of decision
choices swirling

as we seek His direction
and perfect plans
we, like this common bulbul
are taking our rest
right here in the fork
before taking wing

 Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look; 
and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; 
then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.

eyes and ears open

We are in the middle of the first of several visioning trips
as we open our eyes, ears and hearts
to learn what God is asking of us

building new relationships
breaking bread
(or in this case, crocodile)
allowing the Holy Spirit to over-fill us
with the love only He can provide

God is not yet saying yes here
but He also is not saying no

more to come

I AM still here

I'm here
relaxing in front of our cozy little home
in Zambia
where I rarely have good enough internet access
to connect to you
but you remain
in my heart and mind
and I hope I remain
in your prayers
