“I have always been known as a good speaker and encourager. I was a school teacher for years, and have taught an occasional adult S.S. class. I believe part of my hesitation with God regarding courage to just "do it" has to do with my concern of being too detailed. I am known as a good story teller but know I can be too wordy. Through my years in the valley, shut away in my bedroom (due to illness), I had time to see parts of myself I didn't like, such as being too outgoing and verbal. Now, knowing He is preparing me for an amazing testimony about Who He was to me and how He brought me through.”  {End reader comment}



Teachers have the gift to be DETAILED.   That is the nature of their gifting.  They micromanage everything in regards to what they have to say, and every little thing is very special and important to the whole theme.  They LOVE rabbit trails and have a great ability to weave them in on little side bars and then come right back to the point.  The LORD loves rabbit trails, He put them in your heart to share at that exact moment, and you are following His anointing by being His river.  A river slows down in some places, it might gently circle around some point, then it continues to move forward at a different pace.  It can bump over rocks and get narrowed down to slim channel. 


BOTTOM LINE:  You go girl!  Don’t let condemnation put you into that squashed corner.  You go where you are celebrated and not tolerated.  Some people, will not always understand your way of communicating, they want the bullets, and bottom line point.  They rarely want to spend the time listening to the rabbit trails.  But God put those rabbit trail inside of you for HIS purpose.  You follow God, not man. 


May the Lord bless and raise up His victorious teachers in Jesus might Name!

HEARD:  Who I am.  You’re important.  Conversation.  Conversation rabbit trail.  Assurance.  I found you.  Can you talk to me? About who I am?



HEARD:  Story in the book.  Rabbit trail.  You did a nice job on this.  I love it.



PIX:  I saw my going around a car and pulling along side another larger car with a very distinguished grey headed man was looking at me.  His face was very sunburned as though he had been in the glory.


HEARD:  Honey wake up the kids or a friend?  Both.  Supernatural arousing.  Let’s get this show on the road. 


HEARD:  And it was quite a story.  Measured portions.  Will you erase it?  Can’t erase.  It’s recorded for posterity.  Why?  So that you will know My faithfulness.  A long story.  I was with you all the way. 


HEARD:  One way or another, it was a powerful storm.  And she made it all the way through.  Rabbit trail.  No telling what she’ll do.  What’s the difference?  The difference is Spirit led. 



My Beloved, I have saved your time in a bottle and recorded all your journey.  I have treasured every step you have taken in your pursuit to overcome and be with Me.  All your tears, all your smiles, all your rabbit trail and all your bull’s eyed targets… they are all numbered one by one.  Each a treasure safely tucked away in the deep recesses of My heart.  How I cherish your innocent trust in Me, My Beloved. 


Like a bottle tossed into the sea, you cast your prayers upon the waters of life and waited for the return of your harvest.  In those lost and lonely times when you saw no return and continued to span the horizon, you did not give up hope.  You waited as an innocent child while I found your bottle and held your heart in safe keeping as you continued to hold on to your faith.  I AM the High Priest Who has been touched by your deepest wishes.  I have prayed you through your darkest hours and I understand those things you have carefully tucked inside your time of waiting within that bottle.  When I think of time and eternity, I think of spending it with you.


Ps 56:8-13 NKJV

You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle ; Are they not in Your book?  When I cry out to You, Then my enemies will turn back; This I know, because God is for me. In God (I will praise His word),  In the LORD (I will praise His word),  In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? Vows made to You are binding upon me, O God; I will render praises to You, For You have delivered my soul from death.  Have You not kept my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?


CONFIRMATION 3/27/10:  I was determined to start digging deeper into the rhema He has said to me, so I had collected the first word of the month that was quickened to me which was, “rabbit trail.”  One of the ways I felt to dig was to gather all the times in my data base where I had heard that Word and see if I have missed something He is wanting to say.  So today I was harvesting March rhema and I wondered if this was important to the Lord for me to “cook” the word rabbit trail into a Word, and asked Him.  By the end of the day, I heard 2 different people say “rabbit trail!”  One was a speaker on a DVD who said “Listen to this rabbit trail, it is very, very important!”  When I mentioned it to Wayne, he smiled and said that he thought of me when he heard the fellow mention rabbit trails. 


FAMILY CIRCUS:  I am reminded of an old cartoon in Bill Keane’s Family Circus.  Billy is asked to do something.  So you see him leaving the house to do something and then there is a dotted line where you see he had climbed the fence, up the tree, around the neighborhood and then back home.  I don’t remember if he was asked to go to the store or what, but the scene is vividly in my mind! 


WORDS OF WISDOM:  In our fast food society, we want the quick heavenly drive-through happy meal.  But God likes us to wander through His garden, pick the spices, crush them between our fingers and smell their aroma.  He wants us to knead His bread and let it rise.  Finally, He wants us to turn on the flame and sear His meat to perfection.  There is simply no comparison.  Yes it takes time.  But given the choice, I would rather linger with God. 


OPENED SMELL:  Just as I finished writing the above, He opened my sense of smell and I smelled sizzling steaks on a BBQ. 


Deut 8:3-4 NKJV

So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.


HEARD {as I was posting this}She may not know where she is going, but she sure does a good job of it!


[The Lord is so funny!]


CONFIRMATION UPDATE 4/28/10:  I was listening to Stacey Campbell this week on God TV and she mentioned, “Now back to the point!”  She grinned and said that she preaches like a girl, going all over the place before getting to the point.  She said those other places were needed and important. 


I also heard Bobby Conner say he preached in bunny trails.
