Psalm 37:7 NLV
Well, we sure have had a whirlwind of excitement over this past weekend.
I do recall God told me in January, it would be a month and YEAR of SURPRISES!! He wasn't kidding!
Our landlord text me on Thursday and said he was bringing someone by on Saturday morning to look at the house we live in. The house hasn't been on the market. This came out of left field. Saturday morning they came as planned and within 45 minutes the house was SOLD!!! The plot is thickening!!! God loves to increase the suspense, doesn't He?
We have been in this rental for the past 3 years (in September) with NO lease. We've been just month to month knowing that at anytime God could shift us into our "Promised Land". Our landlord has been awesome. He is trustworthy, attentive and has always taken good care of us. Selling of the house is no exception, at least that we know of. He has said to us that the new owners would be required to lease to us and not raise the rent as long as we needed a place to stay. The only catch is, that we sign a year lease! That is not something we are comfortable doing, especially since we believe that God is about to shift us. I do thank God, however, as that may be just His grace giving us piece of mind while HE works out the final details for our move? Only He knows that for sure!
Shifting gears here a bit........
Also on Saturday - we had a conversation with the seller of the property we are very much believing God for. That in itself is the very hand of the Lord, and the amazing favor of God! I cannot go into detail, but please be in prayer that God would move mightily to bring forth the provision to acquire this property NOW. (His timing of course-but NOW is preferred)
This past week the Lord has been speaking that NOW is the TIME to enter into the fullness of His promises! I keep hearing It's Time!!! It's time for healing. It's time for the next step in our adventure with Him, and it's time to GO!!!
There are a bunch of prophetic voices confirming what we are hearing.... and it's quite reassuring!
Here's one that came in on SATURDAY - the very day everything happened on our end!!
"Here It Comes! Your Time is Now!"
by Anne Marie Molster, Boonsboro, MD
Your Appointed Time is Upon You!
"For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." Habakkuk 2:3
It is time to stand and be ready to do the things the Lord has placed within you. He is causing the words spoken to Jeremiah to echo in your spirit, beckoning you to stand – stand free of insecurity, free of doubt – full of confidence that He, the Lord, shall go with you.
You need not fear man and what they will say about you. The Lord God has placed a fire in your heart that burns to release the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth to all those He places in your path. He will fill your mouth with the words He desires you to speak, He will enable your hands to do the work He has called you to do, and He will strengthen you to walk in the confidence of the Lord! You need only to stay focused on His Word, His truth and His voice – all else will fall into place and anything that is not of Him shall fall away.
He Makes All Things Possible
God does not place a desire in you to fulfill His will so that you can simply put it aside out of concern that you are incapable in the eyes of others. He places that burning desire there so that nothing except doing exactly what He has asked you to do will satisfy your spirit. You long to please Him and Him alone. Because of this, He makes all things possible even when they seem impossible.
Ready yourself in your spirit and be prepared in the natural to receive all that the Lord has in store for you! Many things are about to fall into divine alignment that will create an ease to settle over your life. He does not set us up for failure, but provides all that we need to have victory in Him. He will cause your life to become one that will draw others in as you carry His light where He leads you. You shall lack nothing in the natural because He has made you whole in the spirit!
A Lifetime of Blessing
This is a walk of faith, but your Father in Heaven is faithful. He takes pleasure in blessing you in this lifetime. His favor is falling over you like a waterfall. He is pouring out His glory from Heaven so that you may share it with others. The changes He has made in you and your life will be recognized by many, and His grace upon your life will be undeniable, causing others to crave their own relationship with the King of kings.
On a recent morning, the Lord highlighted the Scriptures of Jeremiah 1 to me. I heard the voice of the Lord say, "Here it comes!" My spirit became excited – jumping within me – as the revelation that all of His preparation over the years, all of the trials we have had, all of the pain we have endured has brought us to this moment where He will be magnified as the One who provides and cares for those who love and serve Him.
"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as My prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5 NLT)"The Lord replied, 'Don't say, "I'm too young," for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don't be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!' Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, 'Look, I have put My words in your mouth!'" (Jeremiah 1:7-9 NLT)
"I Have Carried You Every Step of the Way"
On that morning the Lord continued to speak these words:
"Rise today in confidence that I knew you before I formed you long ago in your mother's womb for My purposes alone. I have carried you every step of the way. Although you have experienced painful circumstances and at times even trauma, I have hidden you in a place of safety in order that you would not be crushed – only pressed into a vessel made perfect to carry My glory."You have reached your kairos time in which favor and blessing will pour upon you. You will be recognized by others as set apart for My purposes. Many will be drawn to you so that they may be given new hope in a life that has seemed hopeless to them. You shall reflect My light into their lives, so that they may see the beauty I am able to create from ashes."Do not be afraid when others do not receive you. For they will hear what you are saying and although they appear to not be listening, your message will echo in their spirits until it cannot be denied any longer. Your life is marked with My goodness and although it does not relieve you from difficulty and hardships, I have covered you in My grace and goodness so that you may always prevail in victory over all things."I am saying to you, 'Here it comes!' You will witness My power and favor come upon you like a tidal wave, bringing unbridled joy to your days! You have been faithful in your pursuit of Me, it is My time to give to you abundantly as you step into the plans I have for you! Mark My words, you will stand in awe of all that I have for you! HERE IT COMES!""Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them. For see, today I have made you strong like a fortified city that cannot be captured, like an iron pillar or a bronze wall. You will stand against the whole land—the kings, officials, priests, and people of Judah. They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the Lord, have spoken!" (Jeremiah 1:17-19 NLT)

And another that came yesterday. I only copied a portion of the word.....
"It's Your Time to Cry Give me My Mountain," Says The Lord
Dr. Theresa Phillips
When Caleb cried give me my mountain ...
He was not a young man.
Yet he cried "Give me' because he had fulfilled all that had been required for such a time as this!
It is now his time! It's time to cry out GOD I've done this for you NOW GIVE ME MY INHERITANCE! MY PROMISE! MY PLACE!
It's Now Your Time to ascend the hill of the Lord (Prov 23) and RETRIEVE the promise GOD has given you.
This is by no means an arrogant cry.
It's a righteous cry.. because we have been mandated to do certain things for the Lord on behalf of his Kingship.
The Lord is King and The King Requires Your Presence to fulfill the role you are to play.
Part 2 Next week
Dr Theresa Phillips
We still don't know how or when this will all take place, but there is such an excitement in the atmosphere that things are in motion. God is a God of SURPRISES!! He will show up when we least expect it - and yet - we are EXPECTANT and full of ANTICIPATION!
Though these next days and weeks may be a little nail biting, we are confident in the Lord's goodness and His grace to help us crossover. We are standing at the bank of the Jordan, seeking the Lord on how to step in and watch Him part the Red Sea!
Ken - Praise God Ken has picked up 2 days a week (at least this week) doing some interior painting. We are so thankful for the extra work/income. This will help lessen the gap. Please pray for his endurance and stamina as he will be working 6 days a week with this and his other job. Please pray for his health. He's been having back spasms from lots of heavy lifting.
Michele - Praise God for He is good. I am still contending and believing that I will be healed by the Lord. Please continue to pray for breakthrough in the area of sleep specifically...for both of us... and for pain relief - knee & low back. When I sleep, my energy levels are good.
Canyon - He has given us a few scares thinking we might be putting him down. It's amazing that he keeps bouncing back and his still plugging along. Please pray for grace - when it's time to put him down, that there is no trauma for him or us.
Ministry - Praising God believing that God will bring us into the fullness of our purpose, call and destiny SOON!!!
General - Praise God for His faithfulness! We have had several friends here bring us vegetables, fruits and even eggs from their bountiful gardens! What a blessing!! Though in the natural our provision is not enough, God is enough and He takes good care of us!
Thank YOU so much for your ongoing support, love and care for us and our ministry. We are honored to be able to pray for those who reach out to us. Please let me know if you have any prayer needs.
If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support what God is doing through us - financially, below are a few options. Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted). We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord.
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.
The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers. We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church.
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.
Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world. To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas. Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!! We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
