In The Presence of the Almighty

I started this journal to express the many ways my life has been touched since I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord. I hope to share joys, struggles, testimonies and anything I might receive from the Lord. My prayer is that anyone who reads my entries may receive in a way that is necessary for where they are at in life. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you as you come along my journey.

Life is about to Change

On the morning of May 2 2006, I came to my computer to read my email. This was after having a rather unusual, but positive dream. Below are the email and the dream I have received:

Here is the prophetic word, come through an email:

This word submitted by Lonnie Mackley:

They Will Look To You My dear one, you have spent many years being prepared by Me so I had much of your outer life shut down along with many of the normal relationships that could have possibly distracted you while I was changing you. I allowed only what was necessary and useful in your time of growth and healing to remain in your life, but now that most of your time of transformation is now complete I will be opening up many new and old doors to relationships where people will come to you to receive from Me and to serve. Get ready to get busy locally as well as globally my dear one for I will place you upon peoples hearts and some will even dream of you because I am sending them to you for ministry and to also minister with you. So even though you have just survived in a cave for so very long now I will be changing things and causing your dwelling to be expanded and improved to accommodate all those who will be sent to you. Be willing to be open to the many new things that will come because they are right at your door. Even old friends and family that have left your life long ago will suddenly be drawn to you again and new opportunities to help your community will be opening up very soon so be willing to be joined to others within your area that have finished their wilderness time like you have. I will build large families on large pieces of land so though you have dwelt like a hermit you will now be part of a very large and loving family. They are coming my love and they will look to you so open your heart wide and let them in.

My Dream ( I just finished dreaming this dream immediately before going on the computer to read the prophetic word):

I was stuck in a cave with a bear. Somehow I was trapped inside with this bear where I could not gain access to the outside. I managed to trust God and befriend this bear. I was able to get out of this cave unharmed. I was with this bear for a whole week. While the bear fell asleep I managed to climb out early in the morning under a deck. I walked though portions of this cave in dirt. This opening under the deck was extremely narrow and required thought, courage, and trusting God to get out. I would be in serious harm if someone were to walk on the deck, possibly collapsing my chest as I had to squeeze and push myself out. As I came out into the bright morning sun, there was music playing on a ghetto blaster, clothes on the table…a lot were mine, but alot of the clothes were a man's clothes, and there were balloons for a man and myself. The man came out onto the deck as I was examining the clothes. I told him when he came out that I was not stealing his clothes. He knew I had been with the bear and came out to greet me…he said…”Just in time for your birthday. Yes, in a few days I replied. I said it is your birthday now isn’t it? He said yes. I knew I had to go and re-acquaint myself with some friends who may have questions about the bear, plus I needed to get cleaned up. I saw some friends all in a van and was happy to see them. They were not shocked by my experience. I almost was sad that they weren’t more worried, but were happy to see me, but not over-joyous. But then what shocked me more was the attitude that gee…my primary goal in coming back is to not have them looking at me that way, having to need that attention. I was more concerned with the fact that I had begun to stink a little while I was in the cave and really needed to wash. I felt peace.

It was like the friends weren’t in shock or in alarm because they knew I had to go through that experience. Very interesting. Also, the need to wash fits in with a santification process the Lord has led me into starting mid-April. My focus is to press into the Lord allowing Him to strengthen and build my character, while washing away the impurities that prevent me from walking closer to Him.
What is even more fascinating is that every time I have had a dream about bears, it has been in fear. They have been out to hurt or harm me. For years I have been having nightmares about bears...until now. Interesting. After I thought I should go visit the bear if I was able to befriend him…then it occurred tome…no, the bear may be different if I were to voluntarily go back in. This time with the bear was for a season.
After reading the prophetic word about coming out of the cave, it was an amazing moment with the Lord. He had been communicating to me through several sources.

The Lord has been speaking to me about a husband for awhile now. I know that I am ready and God has a man ready for me. Coming out of the cave and seeing the clothes, the man, the balloons, etc. really made me wonder. Hmmm...am I about to meet the man whom will one day be my husband? Or...God will reveal that man to me? It is interesting that we were both in the 'birthday' moment. My earthly birthday is just 6 weeks away. In this dream our birthdays were close together. I do not know why or exactly what it represents.

I am not sure what all of this means nor will I try to figure it out. I know the Lord will reveal more in His timing.

Strange that bear...when you left this town you were terrified of them. I remember you wanting to buy a bell to frighten off the bears out there.

Can't think right at the moment what this means, but freedom seems part of it; freedom from fears of the past, freedom to go forward with Christ and for Him....much more in here dancing at the corners of my mind.

Gracey,
It is an intersting time of transition. Since that dream and word, so many things are happening. An old friend of mine accepted Jesus into his life...Praise the Lord, which fits along with that prophetic word I received on the 2nd. I am now waiting on the Lord, praying to see what direction to take and see what the Lord has next.
