Chapter 10 Divine

Last March Kiera and I separately received prophetic words/prayers for Eric.

Kiera's word:

Open the door/gate
Open the Bible
Be alert
God has faith in you
He has a treasure for you
that is waiting just for you
Birds are singing
Leaves are falling
Trees are blowing in your face
There is a promise in the storm
Rebuke Satan
Leave spirit of rejection

The word I heard in the spirit:

You went to jail
You are being given time to walk
through the door of restoration
You have to walk through the door alone
You keep trying to walk through with people and agenda's
You won't fit because the gate is narrow
God will be your only companion
He wants to walk with you
that is the desire of His heart
to be your friend
you are His beloved son.
Rejection, abandonment, and trauma
have come against you and bound your mind
and created a warped framework
that you look and operate out of
God so desires to restore you and heal your broken heart.

As I was driving a few weeks ago to an appointment, I saw my Eric walking in the rain with a box balanced on his head. While there have been sporadic phone calls over the past few years...I have not seen him in five years. I drove past him initially, not really sure what to do.

After asking the Lord, I felt I was to got back.

I pulled up next to him and asked him what he was doing? As he stood there, he put the box down on the ground near his feet. The rain was falling on him but he had a hood on. I kept talking to him through my open car door window. (As I was talking to him I realized he was coming down from a high...which he admitted to.) I asked him if he needed something to eat. He said no and I asked when the last time he had eaten and he said that morning. I asked him if he still had that word that Kiera had gotten from the Lord for him last spring. (I had been able to give it to him when he had called last spring) He said he did not have it with I reminded him of a key line in that prayer...which says there is a promise in the storm...I reiterated to him that their was a promise in his storm and that the Lord would forgive him instantly if he walked out of this old worn out yesterday role he continues to walk in. He got teary eyed...but no response. I looked down into the box and realized it was full of liquor.

I asked him if he wanted me to take him to the Bridge (Homeless Shelter in Dallas, TX) or to a rehab...he declined both offers. He is living on the streets - with out a plan! I asked if I could pray for was a good prayer but a difficult prayer in that I instantly felt defenses go up around him - lots of resistance.....after asking him again...was there anything I could do for him and replying no...he picked his box back up and put it on his head and walked away in the rain.

I so feel that this event was a prophetic message to me (and others)...of how to pray for Eric. I felt like the Lord said to pray that his "boxed in thinking...his addiction" would be broken off him. That that box is not only blocking all the blessings and glory God wants to pour upon him...but it really blocks any kind of clear/rational thinking. Please pray that he would receive the revelation that he has the power to put his addiction down as he did so easily when we were talking.

He also had this bright bright green backpack on his back (which would never have been his style and kinda stuck out in a would not want to draw attention to yourself.) I felt like the Lord said he has access to life/future to move forward but he can't see that because it is behind him but if he will just turn around and walk away from that lifestyle that resurrection life is right in front of him!

I would like to ask to come into agreement with Kiera and I for Eric's life to be restored. I believe it can happen. I also do not think it was some random meeting...five represents I believe God truly is offering Eric His grace!

Long Shot!

I had a mission when we arrived at Target, on Black Friday. I knew that they had the Casio Keyboards on sale for half price and I wanted to buy one for Kiera for Christmas. I had only one small problem...she was with me. I did not know how long the sale or inventory would last and I did not want to miss out on a great deal. So, I devised a plan. I got a cart and a giant quilt (which had already been unwrapped) from the Bedding Department. I told Kiera to wait on the movie aisle and not peek. I hurried and had the salesman quickly put the keyboard in my basket and covered it with the giant quilt. I picked Kiera back up with the shrouded gift. We shopped for a while and the plan was going well until a corner of the quilt came up and revealed the photo of the keyboard. She began squealing and jumping up and down in pure excitement! I was sick to my stomach...half the excitement on Christmas morning was the element of suprise and the glee on your childs face...then the verbal pressure began to be poured upon me...about how she would be unable to concentrate at school because she would be thinking about her if she were able to play it tonight...she could probably write a top 40 hit........Yes, I caved. I decided to enjoy the wave of enthusiasm and hope it would carry us closer to Christmas Day!

Purely Fiction

Today, Kiera and I were doing art together and I decided to write and illustrate a silly story for her. Items used: Martha Stewart magazine, glue stick, scissors, crayons, black felt tip marker, a journal and a bit of creativity!

A Four Year old Vessel

The following story is being told to bring honor to our King, our Father in Heaven. He so desires for us ALL to walk in His manifest power and glory! It is so easy, that even a four year old can be a conduit for His power!

When Kiera was in Pre-K, she attended the after school program and he had a sweet teacher named Ms. O. One day Kiera asked Ms. O to please tie her shoes. Ms. O directed Kiera to sit up on the table and she would tie her shoes. Ms. O literally could not bend her back and was in massive pain due to a back injury the previous day.

She had been walking up the wooden steps at the school and had fallen, injuring her back. She did not go to the doctor but the next morning her husband had to assist her in getting out of the bed due to the intense pain and stiffness. She was in such intense pain, she had even asked the older students to cut the apples for snack for the smaller students.

Kiera realized something was wrong, and asked Ms. O what was wrong. She explained to Kiera that she had hurt her back. Kiera immediately asked the teacher if she could pray for her. Before Ms. O could even answer, Kiera had placed her hands on her back and began to pray for her.

When I arrived to pick Kiera up, Ms. O was beaming and told me what had happened. She said I am healed and immediately bent over touching the floor. God is so amazing and so wants His healing power to wash over the planet - be a vessel.

Sweet Fragrance

The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover. Song of Solomon 7:13

Kiera brought this drawing to me and the Lord gave me the verse a few days later. Enjoy!
