EGG, BIRTHED A PEARL
birth to pearls that are 10 times bigger]
This week the Lord has been "birthing" some strange
Words about eggs. I woke today to this email:
what my neighbor (school cafeteria manager) brought to
me? A bunch of eggs in a large white box. I have found
this quite humorous and do not know why?
Anna came into town and brought with her 6 brown farm
eggs. She has never brought eggs with her before. They
were like prized possessions to her as she opened up the
carton to disclose these eggs with the rich yolks. My
spiritual antennas are wiggling and I am wondering what
the Lord is saying because a couple of days ago, while I
was doing a rhema search, my eye glanced briefly at some
old rhema about laying an egg and it was quickened to
CONFIRMATION: I received an announcement that a friend
gave birth to a baby boy yesterday. This was very
special because her biological clock was overdue and she
had waited a long time for this wonderful promise.
HILARIOUS UPDATE CONFIRMATION 5/29/05: From the other
room, I overheard Anna ask Wayne, "What's your house
worth?" I could not believe Wayne's reply! He said very
matter factly, "I don't know, I had an egg a while ago."
Anna & I burst out laughing, it was SO funny. Wayne had
no idea why we were laughing. He thought she had asked
him something else.
CORNER OF THIS PUZZLE
the old rhema I briefly glanced at and was quickened to
me. This was before all these "egg" words mysteriously
showed up all at once.
John runs into the other room and gets his Bible, and is
frantically looking up a verse. He asks me: "Mom, those
notes on the floor by your bed, are they yours or
are a combination of 4 people."
who is the one pregnant?"
goodness, what has he been up to?] I said, "You mean the
one in the hospital giving birth?"
out of the room and goes and gets the notes.] "Who is
this one?" He points to the top page, 12/1/95. "My eyes
fell on this one."
WHAT JOHN SAW FROM 12/1/95:
sleeping, I turned over and glanced at the clock. It
Pregnant. I felt kind of bad. In transition. Laying an
egg. Oyster, big pearl. 10 times bigger.
said, "My eyes fell on the line where the clock said
11:12. Do you know what Matt 11:12 says?"
if you ask for an egg would He offer you a scorpion?!"
heard about laying an egg and it being just like an
oyster bearing a big pearl that had grown 10 times
bigger. To date, I have suffered 10 long painful
chaffing years of delay. I am in an uncomfortable place,
going through transition towards birth. The Lord is
saying if I am giving birth to an egg, would He give me
a scorpion? In other words, would He give me more delay
and cut me down again?
COMMENT AT THE TIME: And life goes on in this screwy
family of mine. Praise the Lord for the "Wing Nut" that
secures all these loose screws! I have really been
cracking up at this last episode. It is so funny!

PONDER: POPPING THE EGG 5/20/05
love. All those years of delay have been accumulating.
You have been sitting on a large nest egg and it has
grown larger and more valuable with time. Did you think
when I gave you My promise, and then you had to wait,
that I would give you a scorpion? Never, My love.
seeds of My Words in your life, the ones you held onto,
the ones you brought into your dwelling place, all those
rich and fertile eggs are like multiplied pearls ready
for harvest. Each and every year that you have waited
and trusted Me, I have added increased wealth to your
basket. Rich and full and overflowing, My abundance is
popping out all over. Travail is very painful, it is
true. But oh such joy comes when the baby is birthed!
when she gives birth to a child, has grief (anguish,
agony) because her time has come. But when she has
delivered the child, she no longer remembers her pain
(trouble, anguish) because she is so glad that a man (a
child, a human being) has been born into the world. So
for the present you are also in sorrow (in distress and
depressed); but I will see you again and [then] your
hearts will rejoice, and no one can take from you your
joy (gladness, delight). And when that time comes, you
will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no
questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that
My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as
presenting all that I AM]. [Ex 3:14.]
