st. augustine door (1 of 1)

I saw myself praying and asking for treasure and prosperity. As I prayed I was taken to a narrow room. It was deep but not very wide, almost like a tunnel. It was filled with golden treasure, coins and pleasure.  I was alone in the room, with everything I had wanted. As I turned over the coins an immense understanding filled me of how utterly meaningless this treasure was. It was as if it had become sand in my hands. I began to despair and I looked back out into the hallway and Jesus was watching me.  My heart knew Him and I ran into His arms and wrapped my full grown legs around His waist and clung to Him. He is treasure. He said “to the one who has, will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever dies not have, even what they have will be taken from them. You have chosen what is better and it will not be taken from you.”

flowers (1 of 2)

I had a vision of woman with beautiful, long hair.  She held a mirror and admired her long locks, for they had grown beyond her and graced the earth as she walked. As I looked I realized she was sitting on a mound of earth. She tried to arise and shine, as the sun beamed down upon her, but shiny, green ivy had begun to grow in her hair. She thought to herself, “O it must have thought me beautiful to climb upon me” so she allowed it to grow.  The sun came out every day and beckoned to her to come up and play. The ivy had grown so, that her time was now spent tending to it. She trained it to grow and was delighted at the work of her hands. She felt the sun’s warmth but never looked up into his face. Fat, full clouds began to cover the sun, but she didn’t notice. Soon rain began to fall. She looked up and questioned “where is my warm sun?” But for now her ivy covered her. Then strong bolts of lightening lit the dark sky and struck the earth. How she wished she could play in the sun. Bound tightly, held to the ground, she could no longer lift her head. She cried and said ” o sun, would you come, I want to play and be warm again.” The sun replied. “I have never left, I am above the cloud, cut off your hair and you will arise and shine and be close to me.” And that.. is exactly what she did! As she was rising, the earth received such a bolt that it dissolved into fine dust and was swept away from sight.

The world is passing away, and all the things that people want in the world are passing away. But whoever does what God wants will live forever. I John 2:17

Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Colossians 3:2-4

 

 

A Vision, Jan 1, 2016

color  (1 of 1)

I was alone on the shore of the ocean. The waves were pounding upon my back. I tried to stand but they were strong. My face was in the sand.  I stood and tried to run but my feet buried deep as the water pulled. The waves continued to beat. I cried for help. I cried out to God. I began to see a Rock behind me. It was big and tall and wide, able to stand and endure the beating surf.  I leaned against it and then I felt His arms. As the next wave crashed over the rock, Jesus said to me, “The punishment that brought you peace was upon Me”.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; It is God’s gift.

2 Samuel 22:31-32 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?
