GPS instructions are not foolproof, and on June 9th this was no exception… or was it? Instead of the most direct route, “Waze” chose a path through neighborhoods, flood regions–inconvenient pathways. This was unique because oftentimes “Waze” will go out of its way to guide me away from traffic, construction, blocked roads, etc. Well, this time — NOT.
Very quickly, the presence of the Holy Spirit was experienced. He was highlighting something–I perked up. GPS chose DOVE RD. Unknowingly, this is the road that was and still is flooded. Papa knew how to grab my attention. He knew speaking using the symbolism of “The Dove” would work for His Arab stubborn daughter.
The river had overflowed its banks and was flooding onto Dove Road. Things He spoke of years ago, through Bob Jones, Bobby Connor, Chuck Pierce, and others were about to launch.
Summer and Fall of 2012, Holy Spirit began to speak into my heart about the preparation for a “move of God” which was taking place in this region. Holy Spirit was about to be welcomed and received in this area. Since that time, it has been clear that preparation of heart, the foundation of faith faithfully taught, ministries built-in right standing with the Lord and man, communion with God, and obedience to His leading were steps taken in preparation for receiving God’s visitation.
This flood is a sign of the nearness of time. He was preparing the land. There is going to be a move of the Spirit (Dove) which will signify that the “Sun” is shining in Texas again and that the unseen darkness previously here has lifted.
It’s time to “wade in the water.”
There will be a move of the Spirit which will birth many into the younger generation of believers. Oaks of Righteousness will be refreshed and on their way to shining like the noonday sun — planted in the River of the Holy Spirit (Psalms 1 and Revelations 22).
There will be a resurgence of Justice; freedom received for a supernatural life of Holy Spirit, lightheartedness, peace, righteousness. With justice and her benefits, God’s people will not be easily moved as the times we live in grow darker. For we are called to release His LIGHT – He who is brighter than the noonday sun. This move will reawaken, reunite the family of the King.
Father Claus* said, “Obedience is the greatest honor in heaven and on earth, therefore you must strive to be obedient to one another. Peace is certainly in God, for God is peace.” Well, if this is true, and it is, what are some of the commandments God implemented, expecting us to adhere to, towards each other?
That, my friend, can be your quest for the day…Ponder, choose, act, write, be amazed and forever changed. And in the meantime, ask God how you can prepare and be part of the movement He is releasing in Texas.

ps. @ Wordpress blog, http://www.visualeast.org, the poem, “Storms, Floods, and the Response” can be found (thoughts regarding what the month of May storms really was. BUT this post will focus on Southlake and the surrounding regions of Texas.)
If your region has experienced the storms of 2015 if you haven’t already please consider meditating on passages such as Psalms 18, 50, 68, 85, 99, 104, 114, 144. God can be found in the storm.

ps. the photo above shows flooding on Dove Road – visual confirmations. This photo shows the most shallow portion of the flood. Rivers setting deep beneath roads were now up to the road and covering half of the trunks of large trees. Parks, roads, and lakes were shut down due to the volume of water.
Some call it, “bored.”
Some call it, “lonely.”
The wounded might call it, “forgotten.”
EEeeekkkk left out???
You know that feeling when you don’t know what to do next–hands-free? Surprisingly or not, you have time on your hands. Yes, the feel of a little or a lot uncomfortable. You “look” around and have a momentary silent panic, “OH MY GOSH, I’M ALONE–EXCITED or is it sadness? Heck, am I FORGOTTEN??!!” “Did the party go on without me! !?!!” “Too silent?”
No new emails, text messages, phone calls, or new ideas. “What am I gonna fill time with??? Standing in the middle of your bedroom, or is it the mall.
Sometimes, one can freak out…especially during those adolescent years. Remember?
Well, here’s the amazing truth about those, “silent moments.”
Those, “moments–hours, days, weeks” are an open invitation delivered SPECIAL for you. Your Creator designed those moments into your timeline’s composition. He wants to meet with you to help you in developing your “now” and future.
Once we enter the space of silence, we will realize that we are not alone, but that the Designer of our hearts and life is right there waiting.
So, “fear not” and take the plunge.
His conversation will love you, give you ideas, reveal hidden goodness.
How? Well. We are all different. Is it a walk or run for you? Open journal with watercolors or oil pastels? Worship coming out of your heart, as you lean up against that tree in the nearby woods? Is it your closet, your window nook, your backyard, your tree swing? Whichever it is, you’ll know. Peace, Truth, Love, Light follows Him wherever He visits.
Some call this a dark time. Possibly, but there is a brighter perspective. I recall a conversation, with one of the best guitar players in the West. He said that perfecting his playing was not the outcome of moments in the limelight, busy schedules, or social events. Quality and marksmanship was a result of developing his skill during the “silent moments” — no fanfare, no accolades, no schedule, no lights.
He said that “silence” doesn’t last forever and when that moment is over, he realized that because he utilized that empty space he was well prepared for the next season. It’s the same with us if we would push past the discomfort one will know that this preparation–realignment–communion time has done its job in strengthening and cultivating.
Our fear of silence, rejection, aloneness, “the how” is combated as we face the “empty space” — the “silent moments” heart/head-on. Once we enter the space of silence, we will realize that we are not alone, but that the Designer of our hearts and life is right there waiting.

“sharing is the game plan.”
You’ve been given “manna” from The Originator’s table.
You’ve tasted it, chewed on it, swallowed it, reminisced on the incredible flavor, and noticed subsequent effects of ingesting such wonders.
You then decided to share morsels from the table. Don’t be getting upset when the receiver, in turn, tasted it, chews on it, swallows it, reminisces on the incredible flavor, and notices subsequent effects of ingesting such wonders. They too will decide to share.
The power of multiplication is The Originator’s design.
Don’t forget, without The Originator Himself sharing with you, you would have never received it.👑
In reality, we don’t really know at which stage of “revelating” the receiver was at when “your” food arrived at their lips. Were you the cultivator of the soil of their heart, the seed thrower, the fertilizer, the watering can, the pruner, the harvester, the chef, the host, the presenter of the “manna”. The important truth is, whichever stage they were at your sharing furthered them on their path; hence, you multiplied.
The Originator will notice you have a table full of guests, and will delight in serving you more “manna.”

“The power of Pentecost,

Not earthly power–

Transforming what was waiting,
spirit dwellings into fiery prepared chariots, ready to ride with heaven’s horses given.
Alive: Engulfed, Empowered, Catalyzed,
His Agency releasing heaven’s measurements on earth.
No longer earth constrained,
No longer waiting.
Lifestyle ramifications/origin rectified:
action, response, results, impact, dominion.
Linked with lifestyle

Counsel and Might–touching

Hello gentle giants ✨⚡️
Pentecost gave us permission and the ability to move and have dominion–bring heaven to your lands. ⚡️Go into all the world and preach Christ’s Gospel, making disciples.
Time to change from waiting for clothes to garments engulfed in His flame.
ps. Jordan is my land–yup. This morning, I couldn’t find photos of where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, resulting in being covered in the Spirit of his Father–through His DOVE, but that took place in Jordan.
The Spirit of the one who prepares the way is with us. He longs for us to partner with Him…

Wow, so overwhelmed while reminiscing about the historical events scribed in Acts 2. Grab a drink, Acts 2, a pen, and join in on this pondering…..
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.
And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind,
and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves,
and they rested on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues,
as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem,
devout men from every nation under heaven.
And when this sound occurred, the crowd came together,
and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language.
They were amazed and astonished,
saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans?
“And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born?
“Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia,
Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,
Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya around Cyrene,
and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
Cretans and Arabs—we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God.”
And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity,
saying to one another, “What does this mean?”
(Acts 2:1-12 NASV included below)
Into the earth and its inflicted limitations supernatural reality of Divinity — His Spirit which is Holy was released. Imagination can lead you to envision this incredible highway being made from heaven to earth, as His gift of presence moving through the galaxies making its way to Jerusalem to those who covenanted to be part of His family.
Such a roar. The noise was so noticeable that thousands within the region of Jerusalem heard highway’s approach and followed This presence to where the 120 were immersed under the loving unrelenting fiery power of His identity.
The crescendo of languages–symphonic unity of declarations interrupted the natural order and knowledge of the day, forever changing what was available to mankind.
Engulfed in His wind and fire
This Gift of presence transformed man’s soul and spirit
They received Him!!!
the mind of Christ!!!
Just imagine (or reminisce in what you already have knowledge of–experienced)
Those in the upper room received a new language,
articulating the greatness of God!!!
It isn’t about man, it’s about Him and His magnificent greatness.
Our minds couldn’t comprehend–didn’t have the language–utterance was limited
to explain Him
He revolutionized the tongues of man–
Loosed by fire–
spoke through those in the upper room–the waiting room, to humanity, gathered outside.
His highway of fire traveled from heaven to earth
carried knowledge of Him who is Majesty.
Tongues right on our minds.
Opening earth to receive heavens limitless-ness
What a precious gift God gave us.
Life transforming baptism for those who ask.
Baptism of a supernatural substance–
His fiery reality,
Revealing through fire and tongue
Manifested heaven’s truth.
It’s about God’s greatness!
It’s about transforming into His likeness!
It’s about His message!
It’s about communication!
It’s about God and man becoming ONE!
It is about God’s Greatness!!!
“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard,
And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him.
For to us, God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God…For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 2:9-16 NASV)

Rain falling the size of lollipops;
straight down, horizontal lines,
Arrows of lightning;
piercing the atmosphere,
striking forces unseen.
Unearthly decibels commanding attention;
Sounds–vibrations across the skies,
cold–foreign to spring’s heat,
size enough to cover green, brown, and grey.
Waters pushing past the man-made dam;
shiftings in its path.
Winds whipping through fields;
strength waking up the sleeping–loud,
fierceness uprooting trees–arms.
Coals of fire from beneath the earth;
once standing still.
Seven in one,
rivers of fire stream
while ash fills the atmosphere.
What is this canopy?
Patterns of clouds;
Dark clouds covering the sun,
introduction to storm’s theater.
What cried in drought
Earth’s events new to generation present,
not to the sun–not to the land.
Under the sun.
Do we suggest a negative approach?
Do we sense the heart of God?
Do we whimper in fear of storms unknown?
Do we find peace in the howling winds?
David said that God was His strength, his rock,
his fortress, his deliverer, his shield,
his salvation, his refuge.
David, to Deity, spoke;
cords of death,
torrents of ungodliness,
snares of death,
From His Temple, God heard
The earth responded–God’s reaction.
Thousands have prayed–
This is His answer–
He has come.
His heart responds – the earth shook — Earthquakes
He, angry at enemies untold, coals of fire spewed — Volcanoes
His chariots He road, darkness covered — Clouds
He moved, they responded — Mighty Winds
His voice, He sounded — Thunder
His rebuke, He decreed — Hail
His arrows, His intentions upon the enemy — Lightning
He leads thru the deep waters, as through a wilderness — Waters shift into floods
He moves, He comes, water cleansed — The rain
He, Him, God.
When He comes–a holy visitation;
Looking for a dwelling.
Life comes–man responds.
Truth, Belief, Faith–respond
Move of God
Sons of God
Playing the harp–once lain on the willow tree
He comes–in us–Hope of Glory!!
Presence of God
Truth of God
Mouth of God
Spirit of God
Justice of God
