[Climbed as Far as You Can Climb]

VISION 6/27/04: I had been driving up a winding, narrow road. I was going slow enough to be safe, but the road got narrower and I was feeling more unstable around the corners. A friend was in the passenger seat. I suddenly became alarmed and slammed on the brakes as I turned this corner, and we had literally come to the top of the mountain. It was a solid cliff straight down. It was so far down you could not see the bottom. We were way up, way, way up. I hit the brakes too late and my car went over. I had the feeling of free falling... still with no bottom or land in sight. I looked over at my friend and saw her face very clearly. She was as stunned as I was. I knew that she was accessing that this was the end - that is unless we received a miracle, and she was giving her life to the Lord. I did the same with no fear. I reached out and touched her shoulder as though to loose my peace over her and wash her because MORE THAN FALLING I supernaturally felt His Sovereignty literally holding us up and I knew that whatever the outcome, it would be Him. I had no fear of dying, or falling, or landing, only pure peace.

I have thought about this vision since then. I spent a long time wondering why my friend???? Why was my friend in the car with me? I knew she represented something, but I was not sure what. Here are the various facts about her:

She always wanted to be a nurse. That is her gift from the Lord over people’s hearts and she has the promise that one day she will heal people as she lays hands upon them.

Her name literally means medic.

In her body, my friend is overweight. She has battled her weight most of her adult life.

In her soul, she is tenderhearted and cries very easily. She cries when she is sad, glad and mad.

In the spirit, my friend is overcoming fear and depression, along with the medications that pacify such. She has a strong heart of compassion.



3 John 2 NKJV

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

The condition of my friend represents most within the body of Christ that have been climbing an uphill battle. Statistics show that 80% of all people over 25 are overweight. This is leading to an alarming number of health problems and the results of such have resulted in a downward spiral of misery - not only in our bodies, but also in our souls and spirits. I believe the Lord is saying that we have fought a huge uphill battle and time has run out. We have gone over the edge in the health of our bodies, souls and spirits. We have fallen and are upside down. It is time to consecrate our lives to the Lord.

1 Cor 6:19-20 AMP

Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.


PRAYER: Lord, as one large kindred heart family of The Quickened Word ministry, we unite together and pray. We are far from healthy in our bodies, souls and spirits. Many of us are overweight and out of shape. We have been plundered and taken into captivity and as often as we try to come out, we are caught in never-ending circles of diets, sickness, medications, miseries of soul and spirit. Lord we ask You to forgive us where we have used the pleasures of appetite to be our comfort, for this has taken Your place as Comforter. We have used the comforts of the world to be our drugs, to soothe and pacify the pain of facing the truth. We have been disobedient to You in taking care of our bodies as Your temple. Lord, You thought we were precious enough to die for, that we might be redeemed and made whole; body, soul and spirit. And we have taken Your grace for granted through plundering our lives with the world’s appetites. Lord forgive us now as we consider afresh Your will for us to come out of captivity. Have mercy on us oh Lord and grant us help. In Jesus Name.


HEARD 6/30/04: My weeping friend. How the pieces fit. What’s the way to resolve all these things? Prayer. Keep praying. The answers are coming. Three exits. Here’s one, soaring. Two, grounded, landing. Here’s three, I quit. Dysfunction. Now which layer do you want?

Sleepy wife, listen to Me please. I am not here to scold you. Endear. Did you think that I would? What you need is a good hug. Embrace. I wait for the unsearched and the covered up. I want to teach laughter. My joy. Why don’t you follow Me and I will take you there?

APPLICATION: When I heard 3 exits, it was immediately imparted to me that there were 3 choices I had in the vision of falling off the cliff. The first choice is to soar in faith over the circumstances, the second choice is to be rooted and grounded in love, and the last choice is to just give up and quit. So this means that we have come to the end of our ropes so to speak, and it is time to be held and healed, not scolded. He is going to bring us into lighter days and restore our joy. He does not want to come to us and scold us but to embrace us, because He understands our pain and our desire to just give up and not care anymore.

About the word endear: I recently visited the rose gardens and before I walked through, scanning the array of beauty, it was impressed upon me to ask the Lord for a rose. I wanted to find the rose that was my very favorite and then see its name. I just felt He wanted to talk to me through a rose. I have many special promises from the Lord about roses. It also just so happens that this rose garden was where my Beloved husband proposed to me almost 30 years ago.

I walked through the gardens, it was like hunting for a great treasure. I found one that was by far the most outstanding one I had ever seen in my life. This had to have been the Lord that drew my heart to ask Him. It was a large full bloom rose, and the petals were the texture and color of deep red velvet. They actually looked fury, as though velvet. The innermost petals were a beautiful pink forming an inner core. It was totally exquisite. I looked at the name and it was a French name that meant my dearest.

My dearest wife, My bride, how I have longed to hold you and embrace you as My own. I know your cares, I know your fears, I know your struggles and your uphill journey to overcome. The road has only become steeper in time and more narrow. Yes, I know your failings. I understand your pain and your many tears. Did you think I would come to you to scold you?

Do you really want to quit and give up? Never. As you come to the end of your rope in so many battles, I only ask that you totally lean all your weight upon Me. Let Me carry you to your goal. Allow Me access to put the pieces of your life back together again and I will sustain you in My peace. Resist meddling in My will and bring all things to Me in prayer. I will bring you the answers you need and help you resolve issues for which you have no answers. I will help you soar above it all, and come safely to your destination, being rooted deeply in My love for you.

You have been asleep in your understanding of My earnest love for you and My desires over you. I have earnestly waited for you and am searching you out from the places in which you are hiding. Did you think you could hide from Me, My dear one? You have known tears, but I want to teach you to laugh. There will come a day when you shall throw your head back and belly laugh with Me! Impossible? Not in My vocabulary. Why don’t you follow Me into a journey of new beginnings and I will take you there? I will replace all your shame and your sorrow and give you double portion joy. I will restore health unto you, my dear Beloved.

Ps 56:8-13 TLB

You have seen me tossing and turning through the night. You have collected all my tears and preserved them in your bottle! You have recorded every one in your book. The very day I call for help, the tide of battle turns. My enemies flee! This one thing I know: God is for me! I am trusting God-oh, praise his promises! I am not afraid of anything mere man can do to me! Yes, praise his promises. I will surely do what I have promised, Lord, and thank you for your help. For you have saved me from death and my feet from slipping, so that I can walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

Isa 61:7 NLT

Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy.
