On Eagle’s Wings

Posted on Feb 17, 2016 in Blog Posts, Ministry

On our last Sunday in NY a few weeks ago, a woman in church came up to me and said she felt the Lord tell her that we were “Going out on eagle’s wings” and that she was to give me the necklace she was wearing that day.  I had noticed it hanging around her neck earlier that morning and commented on how pretty it was, but when she shared more details with me about it, it became even more significant.  “It’s a feather from a red-tailed hawk,” she said.  My eyes widened as I was immediately taken back to when the Lord first called me into missions 8.5 years ago by showing me the hawk soaring in the sky and how just as the hawk effortlessly glides on the wind in full surrender, that that’s how I could soar with Him.  That day in August 2007 has literally set the tone for each day of my journey as a missionary, and a story that I’ve shared with many others to encourage them in their walk of surrendered obedience with the Lord. Now, 8 years later, as my new husband and I prepare to launch out and follow His call, the Lord in His kindness gave me the same confirmation that we are going out on eagle’s wings just like the hawk.  How cool is that?!  I couldn’t have been more blessed and encouraged to have a tangible reminder that He is with us, sees us, and is ready for us to soar with Him on this new adventure. The link below is the 14-minute YouTube video of me sharing that story of how God called me into missions (the specific story about the hawk starts around minute 11.00).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svyZAAPBpSQ You may or may not see yourself as someone to be in missions, but I encourage you to take a moment to watch the video and let my story strengthen your faith to keep believing in the dreams God’s put in YOUR heart, and to know that He will help you get there as you surrender to Him. “They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;     they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary;     they shall walk and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31...

How Beautiful Are The Hands

Posted on Feb 12, 2016 in Arts, Blog Posts, Ministry, Prayer

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”  Isaiah 52:7 This past week in GA I had the privilege of joining with others to paint silks for the people of Cameroon, Africa.  A dear friend of mine is going with a ministry team to not only share the good news of Christ with any/all who will hear, but also to encourage, strengthen, and train the believers in the country and to spur them on to good works!  Just as this team’s feet are beautifully described in Isaiah 52:7, so are the hands that painted these silks, for through each color and design, the silks themselves are preaching the good news of the Gospel.  Below are 2 of the 7 silks that were painted:     As we prayed over the above silk and asked for the Lord’s heart, we felt the Lord say this banner represents a Holy Love revival pouring out in Cameroon!  The whirlwinds represent the Father stirring up intimacy and higher levels of worship in Cameroon. Pink symbolize intimacy and yellow and orange symbolize holiness and the highest praise. Can you hear the sound wave? The intensity of the cries of His people saying, “More Dad! We want all of you! We are laid down lovers for You!” We felt this silk represented the rushing waters that are coming in and covering the dusty places in Cameroon. We saw a well that has not been primed for a while and there’s rust and dirt inside, but felt a cleansing is taking place.  Felt this silk carries a breaker anointing and whoever receives this silk is one who will help prime the pump until the waters of Heaven come bursting forth!  Will you join me in praying for this team and the people of Cameroon, Africa, Feb. 24 – Mar. 4th? May God pour out this Holy Love Revival and send His mighty rushing waters to refresh weary hearts and souls and bring new life!...
