2/19/08 AFTER a SEASON OF SETBACKS
HEARD: Discern you. Youíre a sportsman.
Sheís OK, she needs a rest.
HEARD: I was in a hurry. To run the race.
PIX: I saw a black woman runner with a tear
going down her cheek. She had been sent to jail for
wrong doing. Afterwards she went back to high school
and then on to college to change her life and make a
difference in the world.
Song 1:4-6 KJV
Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought
me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in
thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the
upright love thee. I am black , but comely, O ye
daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the
curtains of Solomon. 6 Look not upon me, because I am
black , because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's
children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of
the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
PIX: I saw a scrunchie that holds hair in a
pony tail. What stood out to me was the large accordion
wrinkles in the cloth.
HEARD: Flattened. Abasement. You worked out
the kinks. Smooth. Laid it all down. Been through
this. You know the way sweetheart. You can smell it.
A runnerís road. Prepared before you. Awesome.
Enlightenment. You understand. It is so simple when
you trust. Waiting on Me. To set you free.
Graduated. Modeled it.
Wayne and I were in Africa and when we got to a river
junction of several rivers merging into one, we saw a
friend coming down one river and joining us. I had to
go the restroom and there were tiny snake and alligator
bodies slimed all over the walls and floors with their
heads cut off. I knew there had been a lot of warring
going on in this place.
Outside the door to the restroom, I had left a little
heart shape rock box with my treasures inside of it. I
asked Wayne to bring it with him. He was in the river
and threw it up in the air, and it landed in the river.
He got it easily and then he threw it into the air again
and into the water. It was deeper and Wayne had to go
down on his knee and put his face in the water to reach
down to get it. He was fully immersed up to his
shoulders. The water was not dirty and muddy as most
African rivers I have seen in photos, but was clear and
INTERP: I sensed that the restroom and throwing
into the river represented a washing through prayer.
Cant find my watch, lost my way. Iím taking you there
to the river. You found it.
WORD TO PONDER: AFTER A SEASON OF SETBACKS 2/19/08
Beloved one, full of zealous passion, you have gone
through a season of set backs where you were so
flattened and abased, you didnt know if you could ever
run again. You survived much accusation and paid dearly
for that time. How precious you are to Me. Thank you
for humbling yourself before Me in repentance and
change, and waiting upon Me through that difficult
time. I understand you have lost your way and dont know
how your life fits in My divine time table. But you
have trusted Me to set you free and I AM taking you to
My river. Through prayer, you and your treasured dreams
will be washed and made whole.
2 Kings 5:9-14 NKJV
Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he
stood at the door of Elisha's house. 10 And Elisha sent
a messenger to him, saying, "Go and wash in the Jordan
seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you,
and you shall be clean." 11 But Naaman became furious,
and went away and said, "Indeed, I said to myself, 'He
will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the
name of the LORD his God, and wave his hand over the
place, and heal the leprosy.' 12 Are not the Abanah and
the Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the
waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them and be
clean?" So he turned and went away in a rage. 13 And his
servants came near and spoke to him, and said, "My
father, if the prophet had told you to do something
great, would you not have done it? How much more then,
when he says to you, 'Wash, and be clean'?" 14 So he
went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan,
according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh
was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he
