I sometimes like to close my eyesthen hold my breath at the same time,erase turmoil from my weak mind,but fragments stay, lagging behind.Surrounded …Outlooks
Recently I asked a few of my friends to do a review on a new book I am writing. The first review came back, and I did not expect the words staring back at me from the computer screen. I was bawling my eyes out reading the touching words about my character as a daughter of Papa God. In that moment I understood the purpose of my wilderness journey, the surrender, obedience and dying to self daily. I remember handing my dream as a prophet back to Father, when He asked me to and taking the painful decision to go on a journey with Him.
Every dark valley, every loss, every betrayal, and the persecution finally made sense. Then Holy Spirit said to me “What if you were not obedient when I called you to the wilderness”? Had I not made the decision to go hard after Jesus, I would have been another “Orpah” returning and clinging to the familiar. When the enemy wanted me to hold on to my past, I took a hold of the hem of Fathers garment like the women with the issue of blood and I did not let go, until I was transformed by His love.
The moment I allowed Father to step into my messy places, my new beginning in Jesus began. About two months ago Father said to me that people will “announce” the remnants bride new season/era in this time. His glory arising over His bride in this hour will be seen and acknowledged by people who know us and people who do not. His glory and the anointing and the weighty sound that His bride will release in this time, cannot be copied by the bride who refused the fiery furnaces of character and heart transformation. The world will know if we visited deep places in Pappa God by our love and unity, the sign of a new era people.
Every challenge, attack and every enemy we face, is part of the cutting away and stripping us of “earth” and our “flesh”. Nothing of ourselves should be visible when we open our mouths. I handed my dreams to Father when I did not want to. A few years later He handed it back to me, with my character intact. Now I do not only operate in my spiritual gifts, but a character that exceeds my gifts.
My pastor used to say that people are waiting for us to step into their lives so that their lives can begin. I believe their lives can only begin, when we have gone through our deep processes of heart and character transformation to mentor them not to chase stages, gifts, offices and fame, but to chase intimacy with Jesus, to be the same person we are at our homes and in public and to release the fragrance of heaven wherever we tread.
One of my favourite verses Revelation 19 verse 7 says “And His bride has made herself ready.” May Father help us to make more effort in making ourselves ready inwardly, then outwardly.
When I seek to understand,
I’m left with more
Not about who You are
But about who I am.
While I long to be understood,
I’m left wondering
I care so much about
What they think of me.
You say I am a
Unique even to
You say I am
You call me
I often forget.
When I “feel” pain from unfair
By those who don’t see me
For Whose I am…
Remind me, Lord.
When I’m pushed aside
And left in the cold
To wonder what it is
Remind me, Lord.
It sets me
You set me
When I seek to understand
And am left with more
Not about who You are
But about who I am…
Remind me, Lord.

Slow and strange
Fast and furious
Numb and nurtured
Waiting and wondering
Wailing and walking
Praying and pondering
Trusting and tears
Testing and transformation
Warm and whimsical
Cold and calculated
Real and ravenous
Raw and reckless
Bold and beautiful
Brave and bitter
Scattered and scheduled
Strategy and silly
Silence and safety
Direction and doubt
Spontaneous and structured
Communicate and contemplate
Surprises and sadness
Love and loss
Hollow and hope
Faith and flawed
Anchored and angry
Sweet and salty
Repentance and rebellion
Recover and rediscover
The Fullness of You and
The Emptying of me.

A restoration only I know.
Reading to you between the lines.
My boldness will be revealed.
Pursuing you all along.
See my flow.
Hear my words.
Open your mouth.
I will fill it.
Restorying told by you.
Tell my story.
It flows in your veins.
Deep in your bones.
The aching the pain.
A birthing of hope.
Spoken to the masses.
Mighty waves with many crest.
Majestic mountains with numerous peaks.
Within each one of you.
Bread you will eat and be filled.
Water you will drink and be satisfied.
Milk has made your strong bones.
Meat to strengthen your muscles.
Age is not a number.
Maturity is welcomed.
The indwelling of my spirit.
Your hair turns to gray.
Wisdom is your crown.
Wear it well.
And straighten the crown of others.
A time to speak a time to rest.
Balance before you open your mouth.
The waves the mountains stay steady.
Ride and climb with precision.
Fear watching from a distance.
As faith takes over the rough terrains.
By foot you are commissioned.
By air you catch the wind.
You are who I say you are.
Done is done.
I finished it all.
Walk in my spirit and know.
I am coming!
I am coming soon!

Look through My eyes, lean into Me, do not miss My hour of visitation.
My new and your new might differ, so be open for change, new paths, new directions, new connections and even new alignments.
This is a time of stretching, a time of My new and uncommon.
Many are finding themselves in this wide open space in Me. It is an unfamiliar place, not previously visited and known.
You have exited the wilderness and are in a place of “waiting”.
You shall hear My voice more clearly, as your future in me is unravelling in the secret place, through downloads, revelations and prophetic dreams.
The intensity of the “wilderness” is starting to make sense. The pain, the dying to self, the stripping and the many losses, were so necessary, because in this new place absolutely nothing of the old can cling to you.
Every “yes” you gave me during your “wilderness” season qualifies you for the new I am declaring over you now!
I am taking My set apart ones into uncharted territories, spaces and atmospheres never been visited.
In this place your desire will only be after Me, as we will move in unison, I in you and You in Me!
Our new normal!

“I could tell you all,
The sorrow of the long night
In the dungeon,
The bliss in the elevation to glory
But all these stories come and go
And often at times you will find yourself alone.
No story to tell,
No glory to rejoice for.
Just you and your soul
Face to face
No chirping of bird
just you and you.
All that would come,
Will not at this time.
This is a measure
of make or break
A meeting in solitude,
Gift to Giver;
Treasure the solitude,
listen to The Giver.
The treasure is in the long silence.
The gold in the mute agony.
Humility in the process,
Glory the end result! ….”

On 11.2.20 I had a strange Vision of Gears ….
I knew God was speaking something to me …
11.3.20 Election day
We prayed – blew the shofar – worshipped and went to bed by 8 pm.
Later in the night I awoke out of a dead sleep.
I felt that it was eerily quiet — more so than normal.
I felt an awakening impression of “Calm Before The Storm” that we were within the “Eye of the Hurricane.” I started to feel a bit of panic and evil foreboding…
I jumped up and tapped my phone and it read 12:34…. I sighed a bit of relief because that is my God Wink time … all numbers in alignment … I always say; “1234 Get Ready for More!”
But More of what? … it didn’t feel as exciting as all the God Winks before …
I decided to check social media for election results … nothing but negative comments and nothing reported …
I went back to sleep and prayed off and on all night in the spirit.
I awoke to a verse Proverbs 3:23 I had from a dream a few days prior and the word “Steadfast.”
My child, never drift off course from these two goals for your life: to walk in wisdom and to discover discernment. Don’t ever forget how they empower you. For they strengthen you inside and out and inspire you to do what’s right; you will be energized and refreshed by the healing they bring. They give you living hope to guide you, and not one of life’s tests will cause you to stumble. You will sleep like a baby, safe and sound— your rest will be sweet and secure. You will not be subject to terror, for it will not terrify you. Nor will the disrespectful be able to push you aside, because God is your confidence in times of crisis, keeping your heart at rest in every situation. —Proverbs 3:21-26 TPT
The 2nd awakening impression / phrase I had is “I will not be shaken.” And I knew from a week ago that I had that verse from a dream. Psalm 62:2.
For God alone my soul waits in silence; From Him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, My defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened. —Psalm 62:1-2 AMP
I used both verses for our family text thread of daily devotions.
I also used Psalm 62:2 as my Thankful for today.
I finished my usual posts and podcasts and checked a few posts that I felt agreed with what I was feeling in my spirit.
I asked the Lord — “What am I to unpack from all this? “
Pray… Rest … Remain Steadfast… Don’t believe the lies… God is still working… He is not shaken so neither are you…Keep declaring… Keep Praying… God always win!
As I went into the kitchen to grab my coffee I saw the strange gear vision again … I recognized the scene from somewhere this time … I was searching my memory on where was that from before ???
I felt the movie “The Wizard Of Oz” drop in my mind.
I got excited and was Yes! It was the gears behind the curtains in Oz!
The movie theme from that scene was perception vs reality ….
Hmmm… but still … I didn’t know what exactly God was showing me.
I texted with my sister and told her … she replied … “In the movie – they think it is some great and powerful Oz only to realize an ordinary man behind the curtain.”
And in the movie when the curtain is moved to reveal the gears and the behind the scenes workings and deception the reply to Dorothy and the others is …
“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…”
I could be wrong — I am still unpacking … but I believe God is saying….
Perception and reality is being revealed in this hour.
That the man/men behind the curtain/s of corruption and deception is being exposed.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…..
God is revealing hearts and changing minds for those that have been deceiving.
God is fighting and righting the wrongs.
You must continue to trust. You must continue to believe. You must continue to pray that God will make a way where there seems no way.
Turn off the news. Get on your face before the Lord. Do not give in to the lies and deception no matter how bad it perceives to be … that is not God’s reality!
Again! Pay no attention to the men/women behind the curtain/s…
They are all being exposed and will reveal the reality of all things hidden.
Steadfast! – Be Unshaken Warriors and don’t give up!
