What's Next?

What's Next?

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.  Romans 5:3-5

If you've been waiting on God for something, you're not alone!  It seems as if there have been many I've heard from that are believing God for something BIG.  Like us, we've done all we can in faith, trusting, believing, contending & decreeing......and all that is left is God's part.  So what do we do next?

The end of December, in my quiet time, I asked the Lord for a specific date that we would see the provision for the vision (Sonlit Fields Retreat, Ministry & Equipping Hub).  Immediately, I heard a date and I asked God, "how do I know that's not just my imagination".  And He said, He would give us something while in KC and He was right, we got what He said.  After coming back, the Lord gave us at least 5 more, what we call ignorant signs, confirmations and were extremely hopeful for the date to come.  However, the date came and went!  I asked God what was the reason for the provision for the vision not coming as we "heard".  I felt He said there is much warfare associated with this.  I understand warfare, but I don't understand why the delay since He gave us such a specific date.  So I continued in prayers, seeking clarity.

Two weeks ago I saw a rainbow angel in a vision. I didn't know at first what I was seeing but it was brilliant in color. I inquired with someone who sees the angelic often and he led me to Ezekiel 1:28.... All around him was a glowing halo, like a rainbow shining in the clouds on a rainy day. This is what the glory of the Lord looked like to me. When I saw it, I fell face down on the ground, and I heard someone’s voice speaking to me.  I asked the Lord what is this angel and why am I seeing it. The Lord said that it was the angel of My Promises. I asked for clarity. He said, I AM releasing the angel to manifest & bring "the personal promises" I have spoken to you. Last week I saw the angel again. This time his wings were arched and his hands were in a prayer posture and then they came down and looked as if they were serving up the promises to each of us in the room.

Last time God was preparing us for our move from KC to Eldo, He showed us 444 several times. (Our prayer is the next move is into Sonlit Fields Retreat, Ministry & Equipping Hub). Our current lease is up in 30 days.....

Heres what that means - 444, 4444
Open door, creative miracles, creative opportunities opening, invitation to encounter fresh intimacy with God, Come up higher, fresh perspective and increase of vision, breakthrough season of victory.

So today I write the check for rent & the check # is 3444. And our bank balance ends in 444. Today is the 29th which biblically means departure...and its leap my quiet time today, this is what I happened to read. 

Romans 8, The Message: "That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.  All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; its within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy."  

So what's next?  I believe that God is telling us things are about to change.  I believe He is wanting all those who are contending and waiting on a promise to know, it's coming soon. Hang on.  Don't give up faith!  Don't try and get ahead of God and birth an Ishmael, but wait patiently on the Lord....and your Isaac will come.  

Hope deferred makes the heart sick
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.  Proverbs 13:12 


Ken is still working part time at Dollar General.  It's been hard on both of us, mostly as his hours are up early (anywhere between 3am-5am).  But, it's the only paying job available and am thankful he's willing and able to work it.   We've been fortunate to have financial resources from the proceeds of the sale of our home to supplement the income, but those are at the end.   I've (Michele) been trying to find some type of work from home job that doesn't require sales or customer service but nothing I've  been able to find.  My biggest health need is SLEEP.  I  am still struggling to get sleep.  I'm only averaging 2-4 hours and is still taking a toll on my health.  I believe once the sleep issues are healed, the rest of me will be healed quickly.  Please continue to pray for my complete healing!!!!

Bless YOU.  Thank you for caring for us, praying for us and standing with us!  If there is anything you need prayer for, please let us know.  We are happy to!!!
