The tension was thick!
She didn't tell me but as we sat in the room with her family I KNEW my best friend was on edge, angry and disgusted! I could feel her…
Have you ever seen one of those movies where putting on certain glasses or goggles allow the people wearing them to see the infrared of other people? I mean, they can see the truth in people, even if people were behind closed doors.
Well, using scenes from those movies is the best example I can think of to explain to you how my prophetic gift works. It’s so exciting!
Just like in those movies, when it comes to the gift God has given me, pre-tense and best performances are wasted because the ability to see truth is present.
For example, while we were sitting in the “tension” room, my best friend's husband casually strolled in and instantly I could see the distance between she and him. I also KNEW that she was upset with him because she felt he was insensitive to her needs. She later confirmed to me that everything I saw about the state of their relationship was true.
Further, anger, distrust, fear and anxiety that she had regarding her father came through. She was angry at him for not taking better care of her mother and didn't trust him to ever do so. And living hundreds of miles away, her parents caused her fear and anxiety.
As I sat in the room with the family, I felt the need to lead them in prayer. So I asked if I could do so and was given permission. As I begin to speak truth in prayer, I could feel a positive shift in the atmosphere. Now, this was a great thing but the work was not complete, God wanted to say some more things to the family.
After prayer, while a calm silence was over the room, God downloaded in me some detailed questions and statements for me to ask and say to them. And as I was speaking to my friend's seventy eight year old father, I kept thinking, "Lord, this man is going to think I am being disrespectful", but he never said or indicated that in any way but rather began to openly share about the childhood hurts that still hurt him today.
God allowed me to help my friend to realize that her father didn't mean any harm when he appeared to make every conversation about himself; he just had so much unresolved hurt in his heart and he desperately wanted to be heard. My friend’s mom was very grateful that this dialogue took place. The appreciation in her eyes told me so and my heart was very touched.
As I drove home that evening I reminisced about what had occurred and had much joy because I knew that I had obeyed God and He was pleased.
Some of you may have the gift of prophecy and feel somewhat fearful that if you say what God has told you to say you will be ridiculed. Or some may feel uncertain that you are hearing God accurately and choose to remain silent. BUT you must not stay silent!
Yes, YOU CAN operate in your prophetic gift and MOVE right past fear and uncertainty!
God still speaks prophetically today and you are needed.

Let me tell you a story...
It was the end of 2016 when Kimmie Robinson approached me about starting a podcast on her network. Her exact words were, "You have an anointed ministry that must be heard." What was amazing was I had just wrote in my journal that I wanted to start my own radio show in 2017. We agreed that I'd start the show January 2017 but when January came, I was no where to be found.
I purposely avoided Kimmie's Facebook messages, texts and phone calls.
I knew in my heart I was supposed to do the show but I was afraid because I had never hosted a radio show before. I kept thinking, "What if the show flops?" I didn't want to let Kimmie down. In addition to that I really wasn't clear about how to design the show. I knew nothing about podcasting. I did not have a professional microphone. I didn't have a huge following. I didn't have money to pay guests. I didn't have a studio. What was I going to talk about for 30 whole minutes? I didn't want to take on another responsibility and not stay committed. I was already running Dare to Dream solo which was and still is exhausting and I honestly didn't know if I could handle adding more to my plate.
Nevertheless, I kept praying. I asked God for the concept, the vision and the name of the show. And God delivered. So in March 2017 I launched the "From Powerless to Powerful" show and winged it. My vision for the show was to use everyday people to empower & encourage other every day people with testimonials of overcoming. My soul's calling is to teach so I knew I wanted to through in a few teaching series.
Now here I am a whole year later with an hour long show! The show is growing, my following is growing, and my guest list is taller. I am proud that I didn't allow all of my excuses stop me from starting.
