Dec 3, 2021 … I feel like a cork in a champagne bottle about to blow! The exuberance and life that is bubbling up is about to pop the cork and the bubbly is about to flow! These past months I have been fairly quiet as I have been in transition. Not silent before the Lord, but publicly as it’s been deeply personal in yet another season of surrender. Surrender to my dream, submitting to another move, starting over yet again, and so much more!
In relocating to Sarasota at the direction of the Lord, I’ve been seeking the Lord for His plan and purpose in the move, as I know it’s not simply about a location. The location is indeed beautiful and feels so free, and it feels like home, but it is SO MUCH MORE than that. It is strategic for me, for this chapter, for God’s plan! I have always determined to make this blog “an inside look at My Personal Journey Into God’s Heart”. It’s a way for others tp peer into my journey, in the hopes that it will somehow stir you, encouage you, bless you, and beckon you further into your own journey DEEP INTO HIS HEART! This is why I share this word with you that seems to apply directly to me, and it does, but I also believe that God is no respector of persons and what He will do for me – HE WILL DO FOR YOU! He has a BIG PLAN FOR YOU … IN 2022! Are you ready?
I have this deeply planted dream/purpose/destiny/vision on the inside of me that up until now I have not been able to give birth to. It has remained bottled up on the inside of me as I have waited on the Lord to clarify, and bring me to a place and time of release. In actuality, I had surrended yet one more time to Him as I offered the dream on the alter – even to the point where I believed that perhaps, it too, was dead. SUDDENLY, on Sunday (just 5 days ago), I had a meeting with a woman I had never met before. We were divinely connected by a mutual friend who lives across the country. All I could say afterwards was that it was “crazy, amazing God!” I mean seriously, there was no other way to term the DIVINE CONNECTION! Neither of us knows what it means, but we know that our meeting was DIVINE! Since then, without me even trying … the wine, the rivers – are beginning to flow up out of me! A settling of my spirit has come and a feeling of quick growth about to happen! Like a palm tree shooting up out of the ground – almost as if overnight! Of course we know that anything that seems to spring up quickly – if it has staying power – did not happen overnight! It happened in the darkness, in the quiet, while the foundations were being dug deep into the ground – as we prepared for the appearance of the “overnight” growth! This morning, I kept saying over and over to the Lord that I feel like a champagne cork about to blow, Then, He quietly whispered to me …
“2022 – it’s beginning NOW! What you will see happen in your life in 2022 has already been set in motion by your obedience and your willingness to trust Me in the toughest, darkest season of your life! You have waited upon Me even when it did not make sense, even when you did not understand. You waited on me while you seemed to be overlooked by the world at large, while you didn’t fit in —- still you waited upon Me. I have done a work in you that even you don’t fully understand. There is so much that has happened that will begin to flow out of your life that will bring new life, healing, restoration, equipping, releasing, and abundance to those around you! You will indeed step into a new era this new year! You feel it rising and it will soon spring forth.
2022 will be a year of great reward and abundance for you. Get ready for all your dreams, petitions, and desires to begin to be realized. I mean ALL of them … ALL! Not some, but ALL! You’re about to be uncorked and you will release celebration upon my people. They will be healed, set free, released from their bondage, and filled with EVERLASTING joy!
2022 will be a year where My blessings will rain down on you and fill you to overflowing. You will see those things you desire and so much more. I have more for you than you can even believe me for. You are my daughter, I love you, and desire to bless you in a way that shows my favor and pleasure upon your life! You have been through a tough season but you have trusted me and come up SMELLING LIKE A ROSE! I am about to release that fragrance to the world. The sweet, sweet essence of the beautiful rose.
2022 shall be a year of great reward. It shall be a year that you will reap MORE than you have sown! Your harvest is about to be made abundantly clear. I am opening the windows of heaven over your life and pouring out blessings you will not know how to contain. Its a year that I choose to celebrate YOU! Oh, yes, I do! I delight in celebrating our love and letting the world see our love on full display. Keep trusting me, keep looking to me, and watch what we will do together. It’s no longer simply about what I will do in you or for you. It’s about what we will do TOGETHER! I am ready to ride the chariot upon the mountains with you! Together we will ride and bring our love to the world who desperately needs to know this AMAZING LOVE THAT WILL SET THEM FREE!” (end of word)
I receive it and I bless you with it, too! Let love arise as you submit deeply to the Lord and watch what He has planned for YOU IN 2022!
Who is this one? She arises out of her desert, clinging to her beloved. When I awakened you under the apple tree, as you were feasting upon me, I awakened your innermost being with the travail of birth as you longed for more of me. Fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire forevermore, This living, consuming flame will seal you as my prisoner of love. My passion is stronger than the chains of death and the grave, all consuming as the very flashes of fire from the burning heart of God. Place this fierce, unrelenting fire over your entire being. Rivers of pain and persecution will never extinguish this flame. Endless floods will be unable to quench this raging fire that burns within you. Everything will be consumed. It will stop at nothing as you yield everything to this furious fire until it won’t even seem to you like a sacrifice anymore. Song of Songs 8:5-7 (TPT)
How beautiful on the mountains are the sandaled feet of this one bringing such good news. You are truly royalty!
The way you walk so gracefully in my ways displays such dignity. You are truly the poetry of God—his very handiwork. Out of your innermost being is flowing the fullness of my Spirit— never failing to satisfy. Within your womb there is a birthing of harvest wheat. They are the sons and daughters nurtured by the purity you impart. How gracious you have become! Your life stands tall as a tower, like a shining light on a hill. Your revelation eyes are pure, like pools of refreshing — sparkling light for a multitude. Such discernment surrounds you, protecting you from the enemy’s advance. Redeeming love crowns you as royalty. Your thoughts are full of life, wisdom, and virtue. Even a king is held captive by your beauty. How delicious is your fair beauty; it cannot be described as I count the delights you bring to me. Love has become the greatest. You stand in victory above the rest, stately and secure as you share with me your vineyard of love. Now I decree, I will ascend my palm tree. I will take hold of you with my power, possessing every part of my fruitful bride. Your love I will drink as wine,
and your words will be mine. For your kisses of love are exhilarating, more than any delight I’ve known before. Your kisses of love awaken even the lips of sleeping ones. Song of Songs 7:1-9 (TPT)
