The Preparation of Pillars That Will Bridge Nations

By Kathi Pelton

Recently I received a prophetic word from a precious sister from Russia that spoke of my husband and I being like a bridge that would span or connect East and West in our nation. Along with the word she sent a time lapse video of an incredibly long bridge that has been under construction in Croatia. As I watched the time lapse of its construction, the majority of time and energy was spend on the pillars that would uphold this bridge. The time that it took to actually connect the pillars with the bridge was much shorter.

After watching this video, the Holy Spirit began to speak to be about how, for many decades, he has been preparing those who will stand like pillars to bridge nations. I saw the intricate details that began first with going deep below the surface to secure them in the depths of the foundation of Christ. That process alone took many years— testing, refining and aligning. Then the process of building them into “pillars” has been another lengthy time that required these men and women to stand before him as yielded vessels who would allow the work of his Spirit to build their endurance, their character and their posture before him.

When these natural pillars were completed, they had the appearance of men or women with their legs deep in the water and their arms outstretched to either side— reaching out for the pillar to their left and their right.

I immediately thought of the verses from John 17: 20-23 that says,

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

There has been an continuous process and preparation in these men and women to be still and to allow the things that create division or independence from God (and one another) to be removed, repented of and delivered from so that these prepared pillars can come into oneness with God and then be joined as “one with one another” so that a bridge is created for those who will come to Christ and cross over. Even our precious Jewish family. When we are one…then the world will know!

The process of being prepared has been decades of refinement and detailed preparation. You may be one of these pillars and you’ve wondered why you’ve had to stand in such a constant state of preparation for what appeared to have little connection to anything. You’ve often stood alone, being strengthened by the Lord. But your preparation for connection is nearing! Your arms are outstretched in a posture of prayer and longing to be connected.

Do not lose heart now! The pieces that bridge and connect lands and people to God and one another will come into place very soon. There is a spiritual “bridge over troubled waters” being made ready and soon many will cross over!

Your standing still and standing in faith that the preparation has been for a purpose will soon be made known. End time pillars needed to be reinforced to withstand the weight of all who will cross over while being unmovable in the troubled seas that their feet stand in. The bridge that you will help hold up will allow those coming to Christ to be held above the waves while providing them a safe passage. A global family will emerge that creates sonship in all who passover into salvation.

Keep standing! It may be all you know to do at this point but very soon your posture will have purpose!

Never Regret Your Yes

By Kathi Pelton

Next year marks 40 years since the first time my husband and I gave our first “yes” to the Lord and left the home that we loved and all our family to say yes to him. That first “yes” was a bumpy road— partly due to our youthfulness (and the crazy homesickness that I experienced) and partly due to “what was promised was not delivered.” We gave up our beautiful life in Northern California and moved 2241 miles to a place we’d never been…because we wanted our lives to matter and we wanted to follow Jesus! From the very first day we arrived it was hard and the next two years only got harder before we left. I remember when we finally decided to go home (after the leader fell into sin), I felt so much sadness— I felt foolish— I felt like I’d somehow failed— and regrets overshadowed why we had gone in the first place. We had left everything and everyone to follow Jesus! The Lord quickly spoke to me and said, “Daughter, never regret your yes.” I understood that though I had no way of measuring the success that looked like failure to anyone looking on…the Father measured every yes given to his Son as an act of worship and there are no regrets to be carried in that offering.

Now, forty years later and thirty-one homes later…we are still giving our “yes.” We are not so naive now to think that we measure success by what man sees but rather by what God receives. Throughout all the years of saying “yes” we have had “pinch yourself” moments that were so beyond what we could have asked or imagined and we have had moments of pain so deep that we wondered if we’d survive. But no matter if it was “awe” or if it was “weeping”…he was and is worthy of it all.

So don’t judge the pure “yes” that caused you to cross a country or an ocean or leave the ones you love. Don’t judge by the man-made measure of success and don’t judge yourself “yes” harshly— what is offered to him is eternal and the fruit of that yes will reap a bountiful harvest. If you know someone who sacrificed much to give their yes— do not judge or glory in what might look to your eyes as failure. God sees it differently!

Please know that this word is not coming forth because of our upcoming move from the DC region back to the West Coast because we have great confidence in what God has begun in our focused time in DC and our continuing journey with what was planted…this word comes out of witnessing a lot of people give their “yes” during the past couple of years that other might view as “failure”, but know this— it is counted to them as a great reward because Jesus is smiling at their offering of praise! Their yes is still making him smile.

If you are young (or old— or in between) and your excited “yes” did not turn out how you hoped and dreamed please do not take on regret! I fully believe that the very first “yes” that my husband and I gave— which ended in what looked like absolute failure and a waste of time and money— was a seed planted in our lives of becoming a disciple of Jesus. It was worship to him because of our hearts, not because of our accolades. Honestly, though it was painful, God used it as part of our journey and the training of our hearts.

I woke up this morning hearing in my spirit the tears of those who felt great excitement about a venture they said yes to that now has no measurable success. First, your mere “yes” was a victory from the start! Every sacrifice and offering of “leaving all to follow Christ” is a victory. Every mile, every moment, every tear, every homesick and heartsick feeling, every sleepless night…it is all counted as worship.

Don’t you remember the reaction of those who looked on as Mary poured out the expensive bottle of perfume over the feet of Jesus, along with her tears? They mocked her and said that it was a senseless waste. But over 2000 years later it is still seen as one of the greatest acts of worship. Your yes is like that alabaster jar of perfume, broken and poured out over his feet in worship. There is to be no regrets and there is surely no way to measure the worship that is poured out in these moments. These are eternally remembered!

Keep saying YES! Keep pouring out your life and do not let regret take away the offering that you gave. Don’t judge your “act of worship” and don’t listen to the mockers who look on judging the offering wrongly. He was glorified!

I hear the words, “Well done.” over many of you right now. I see Jesus crowned and exalted by the yes that you offered. I see angels being sent to water the seed that may look as if it died and yet we know that He is a God of resurrection power. I wish that I could give you my life experience of what looks like many successes and many failures…because you’d understand that it all produced endurance, character and even the brokenness released perfume that anointed his feet.

“No regrets for your yes, Beloved!”

The Lord has been glorified! You will see fruit one day if you will allow it to be perfume over his feet rather than regretting the cost that was paid. He is so ravished by you and overwhelmed by your offering. Well done!!

A Divine Victory

By Kathi Pelton

Many of you have been and are even now facing what appears to be “giants” that taunt you and mock you with the words of sure defeat. You feel small in the shadow of the giants that stand before you, much like young David must have looked as he stood before the giant Goliath and his vast army, who were positioned in battle array. David stood with no armor, no physical strength, no army backing him and no weapon that is useful in battle. He stood in the “fear of the Lord” with merely the small weapon that he was familiar with– a child’s toy at best to Goliath. Yet, he was not standing only in the shadow of Goliath– he was standing under the shadow of the Almighty which assured his victory. He had faced lions and bears therefore he knew what he needed and what he did not.

The circumstances before you may mock you with their size and their strength but as you stand before them, postured in the fear of the Lord, covered by the shadow of the Almighty and holding whatever “weapon” you are familiar with (it may just be a prayer or a scripture or just your mustard seed of faith as your stone)– you are assured victory. By His strength and His power and in His name you are about to slay a giant! This will cast great fear upon your enemies who will run like dogs with their tails between their legs. It will also impart the fear of the Lord into those who have been fighting alongside you, as they witness your victory. They will say, “It was not by might, nor by strength but by the Spirit of the Lord that they defeated the giant that would cause most to run away in fear.”

Just as David was chosen, just as Esther was chosen and just as Mary was chosen– so you have been chosen. He chooses the weak things of the world to confound the wise so get ready because the wise are about to be confounded by what the Lord does through you and through the battles that you are facing. He is raising up those who are strong in the fear of the Lord even when they may be known for being weak or merely “common.” They may not be from Ivy League schools but they are about to receive wisdom from the Ancient of Days that will cause men to wonder where you receive your wisdom and knowledge. They may not be pro-athletes or Olympians, but people will wonder where they trained to move in such strength and skill. And, they may not have a doctorate in theology but theologians will wonder how the Word is being lived out with such great mystery and accuracy in them.

God is about to promote his David’s and his Esther’s into royal positions where they will lead and step into positions that they seemingly are not qualified for. Some of you will even lead nations and people from oppression into possession. The common man or woman, who walks in the fear of the Lord and the confidence of his Word, will no longer be seen as common but they will be found in positions of authority and power. They will plunder the enemies camp and take back the inheritance of people groups and nations…and of their family line. There is about to be a changing of the guards in many positions of authority in businesses, spheres of influence, governments and even in the body of Christ. It is the posture of surrender and dependence on the Lord that will promote those who seem unqualified to hold these positions.

Strengthen yourself in the Lord! Go out and face your enemy clothed in his heavenly armor. Walk in the confidence of his name and his Spirit. You are not on the defense but you are on the offense because the Lord has stationed his vast angelic army in battle array all around you. You may be small in the natural but you are a giant in the spirit. The enemy that has opposed you is about to run in fear because the Spirit of the Lord is upon you.

If fear has caused you to cower and hide, GET UP! Clothe yourself in the fear of the Lord and go out and face your enemy in the confidence of the Lord. You may have nothing in yourself but you have more than enough when you are “in Him!” You are not going backwards, you are not defeated, you are not alone and you are not ill-equipped– YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED IF YOUR CONFIDENCE IS IN THE LORD AND NOT IN YOURSELF OR YOUR SKILLS!

Victory is yours in Christ Jesus!

Testimony of Encouragement:

Our family and ministry is suddenly facing a massive need that will require us to set up a home/ministry base on the West Coast as well as here in the Washington DC region. This was unexpected and demands immediate action. Just the move to set up a home base on the West Coast is a 10k expense. Then there is the additional costs of setting up another base here in the DC region. It began with the sudden and unexpected loss of our current home and office (the owner is in the military living out of the country and has been reassigned back to DC and legally those in the military can break a lease if they are reassigned).

Last Tuesday we were suddenly and unexpectedly faced with this shift. The Lord then said that we were to set up a west base and east base like “bookends in the nation.” On Tuesday we had an immediate need for $10k and within 48 hours over $6k had come in miraculously! Do not be afraid of the vast need that is before you! God is able!

If you would like to help cover the additional $4k needed (by July 15th), you can be a part of our miracle that will become a sign to many of how the hand of the Lord moves.

Joyful Expectations

By Kathi Pelton

Did you know that in many instances in the Bible the word, “hope” can be translated to mean joyful expectation? To lose hope is to lose faith because as Hebrews 11:1 says,

Now faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see.

It is not only good but it is essential to our souls to have joyful expectation for our life here and now. God has given each of us dreams, desires and hopes that bring us great joy as we expect their fulfillment. Someone that is very close to me has been facing a decade of infertility and I stand in continuous joyful expectation that she and her husband will conceive a child. Together we dream about this little promise, we have talked about it, bought items to prepare for it, she and her husband have picked out names—plans have been made in joyful expectation. This does not mean that there are not many tears, frustrations, disappointments and even the desire to stop hoping. But the hope continues, and this hope produces joyful expectation even amid deep heartache for them. I, too, faced years of infertility so I know the rollercoaster of joyful expectation only to be met by painful disappointments. The day that I held our adopted eleven-month-old daughter in my arms for the first time, I experienced a complete release from all the sorrows that came from the years of “hope deferred.” Then less than a year later I held my infant son who I gave birth to.

We are not guaranteed that every hope that we have will be fulfilled on this side of heaven but we do have a guarantee that the hope in our eternal promise will be fulfilled. Whether or not we see every fulfillment of hopes and dreams come to pass it is still essential to live in the place of joyful expectation. It is life to our souls and health to our hearts. The dreams that children have of becoming an astronaut or fireman nurture imagination and joyful expectation. Though they may never actually ride in a rocket ship this joyful childhood dream is necessary for their growth and for nurturing their hope in the unseen. We were created to dream big in joyful expectation. If we could retain this childlike posture, it would truly break off the posturing of settling for something less than God’s best for us.

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

Often, we stop believing in the “more than we can ask or imagine.” Yet, children are proof that we are to dream of things that are bigger than what we have been able to imagine. I have rarely met a young child with small dreams—they have not been subject to all the things that we learn that cause us to limit our dreams by carnal knowledge.

Common sense can be a great enemy of dreams, but the wisdom of God causes us to enter a joyful expectation of seeing “Him who is able” to do more than we can ask or imagine. I truly believe that the quenching of joyful expectation through common sense or man’s wisdom is more dangerous to the human soul than most any other thing.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:9-11

Shouldn’t we dream of flying rockets or bringing healing to the sick? Shouldn’t we renew the areas of joyful expectation that have been diluted by the wisdom of men? Yes!

When my husband and I began the journey to adopt our oldest daughter, we were young and so full of joyful expectation that we said yes to a journey that was presented to us as “impossible in the eyes of men.” The chances of us adopting this baby girl was truly impossible in the natural realm—judges told us that we did not have a prayer, social workers told us that there was no way for us to become her parents, even Christians looked at us as if we were a desperate young couple that was immature and foolish in our faith and hope. Yet, I had heard my Father’s voice that said, “Trust me and go forth in faith.” Numerous times along the path we hit walls that confirmed the natural impossibility that we were facing, but the Father continued to say, “Only believe.” Nine months later, by unheard of miracles and out of the faith of joyful expectation, we held her in our arms and took her home as our daughter.

I often wonder if God asked me today (thirty years later) the same thing, if I would be as quick to give my yes? Have I “matured” to the point that I’ve lost the joyful expectation that would venture on such an impossible journey with the hope of God fulfilling what he spoke to my heart? Have I matured in the ways of the world or in human understanding or what we call “common sense?” May it never be so!

It is time for us to return to the God “who is able to do above and beyond all that we can ask or imagine” and enter the childlike joyful expectation that we had when we first began walking with him.

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[a] considered him faithful who had made the promise.” Hebrews 11:11

Pray this:

“Father, today I ask you to restore the childlike faith and joyful expectation to me. I declare that every place in my heart and soul that has become diluted by common sense or the wisdom of men would now receive a full restoration of hope and joy. I proclaim today that you are the God who is able to do more than I can ask or imagine! I will not settle for less than the miraculous. I will no longer limit my dreams because those limitations have diluted my joy and expectation of doing the greater things.

The Pouring Plumb Line

By Kathi Pelton

As I sat in the prayer room today I saw plumb lines drop down from heaven to earth over different individual’s lives. As it dropped the tip of these plumb lines became spouts that poured out the love of God, the oil of healing and the wine of intimacy.

As I looked upon this I saw that angels were assisting these individuals to align them directly under the spout so that they received the fullness of what the Father was pouring out. The misalignment was merely causing the person to miss the fullness of what was being poured out. As these loved ones surrendered to his longing the angels were easily able to move them under the direct flow.

Then I heard,

“Their cups will overflow. I have always intended for my sons and daughters to live in the place of the fullness that overflows.”

There is such love, compassion, restoration and healing pouring out at this time. He merely waits for the smallest “yes” to move under his downpour.

Now Is The Time To Live In The “True You!”

By Kathi Pelton

I hear the Spirit saying that now is the time to “shed the old skin of false identity.”

It is time to allow the Lord to put your true identity upon you. You were created in His image and carry within you His Spirit to do great things. If you are living under an identity that bring you shame, distress, insecurity or self-hatred then you are not living in His image or His design for your life.

I know someone, who for many years, denied their call as a leader and as a man of influence. During the years that he denied his true identity he found that within the church he felt virtually invisible. He also continually found great opposition in what he was doing in place of the call of God on his life. He was living an identity that no one could really recognize because it wasn’t who he truly was and what he was living just didn’t fit him. Finally this man allowed God to do a deep work in his life and he stepped out of the false identity, that was based on lies he believed, and into the true identity and call that God had for him. It was an immediate transformation for this man. All of a sudden he was visible and God quickly restored all that he was created to do. He began to walk in favor and authority, as well as fulfillment.

When we live in a way or an identity based on the lies we have believed it downgrades our lives and causes the favor that we were created to walk in to dissipate.

There are men and women throughout the world who do not know Christ but understand their true identity and they experience great favor and success but their success has an emptiness on it that always leaves them striving for greater success and fulfillment. When we know our true identity and are walking with Christ as our Savior we experience favor, success and fulfillment…as well as peace.

If you recognize that you are living a false identity that has downgraded your life and causes you to spectate life more than truly live a joyful and fulfilling life; then now is the time to shed that old skin. It’s time for your upgrade!!!

First, renounce agreement with every lie that you have believed and then ask God for His truth regarding your life. In faith believe and agree with what He reveals to you. Agreement will begin the process of stepping into your true “you”. Then begin to occupy your new and true identity by taking steps to walk in it.

Now is the time for the sons and daughters of God to arise in truth, favor and authority. Now is the time for you to arise and be the reflection of the image of Christ that you were called to display to the world.

Now is the time! Let the “true you” arise for all to see!

Do You Need God’s Wisdom and Counsel?

By Kathi Pelton

“Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will show him the way he should choose. He will live a good life, and his descendants will inherit the land. The secret counsel of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He reveals His covenant to them. My eyes are always on the Lord, for He will pull my feet out of the net.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭25:12-15‬ ‭

These verses from Psalm 25:12-15 are so great!

This is why the Bible says that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10). The fear of the Lord actually means, “reverential awe” (reverence: deep respect and honor). We stand and live in the deepest honor and respect of His awesome love and wonders!

Verse 14 of Psalm 25 says that those who fear Him will receive his secret counsel. This is the wisdom that is given and spoken of in Proverbs 9:10. Jesus walked in the secret counsel of His Father during his time on earth and we can do that too. We can live in WONDER rather than in “wondering and confusion.”

Psalm 25 promises that as we live in this deep reverence and awe that we will be shown the way we should choose and we will have a good life (that will be passed onto our children). It also guarantees that he will rescue us from any snare our feet get caught in. This is COVENANT and cannot be broken!

I am continually asking the Lord to help me to live in a greater awe, reverence, honor and respect for him in EVERYTHING I do— that this would be the standard that I uphold.

I am asking today, “What in my life is usurping the awe and reverence? Where do I need to lift up the standard of the fear of the Lord in my life?”

These are the question that align us with the Holy One and his secret counsel…his wisdom and his ways. It’s good to ask the Holy Spirit to search your life and to find the areas that lack this standard of awe and honor. Then ask for his help to make the adjustments so that you have all that he desires to give to you today and every day to come!

It brings him such joy to answer us and to align us with the outpouring of his love, counsel and covenant blessings. What joy it is to be loved so deeply and to walk in a standard that honors God and reaps a harvest of blessings!

Watch as God Displays His Wonders

By Kathi Pelton

There is such attention being drawn in this hour to all the negative and the display of evil on earth. I often wonder if we have turned our attention away from the sacred and to focus our attention on the display of the profane?

Today I awoke with a renewed realization of “the God of wonders” in our midst. It is time to turn our eyes, our thoughts and our attention back to who he is and what he does rather than watching the display of the wicked. He is calling us to watch the wonder and turn away from the wicked.

Our God will display his wonders in the midst of the wicked and his hand will be the one that is proven to rescue and save. He is the one that shakes the earth, makes the mountains tremble and is an all consuming fire that comes to purify.

Psalm 17:7 says, “Display the wonders of Your faithful love…”

We say, “Yes Lord! We turn our eyes toward your faithful love where we will see your wonders displayed.”

He is our portion and our cup of blessing (Psalm 16:5) and in him there is no lack. It is time to stop looking at the lack that the world displays and begin delighting in the full portion and overflowing cup that we have been given. May this cup overflow from the lives that have been lavished by his unfailing and faithful love. May his faithfulness be poured out upon a world in desperate need of a drink of pure love.

This refocusing will allow our lives to be conduits of the overflow. As we surrender, as we worship and as we give ourselves fully to him we make room for his glory to be displayed and his wonders to fill the earth.

We silence our tongues from the constant testimonies of what the wicked are doing and we ask the Spirit of the Lord to loose our tongues with the sounds of his love. May the testimonies of Jesus pour forth and prophesy to the dry bones. May the songs of wonder and sounds of awe be released that overcome the shock and awe of the evil that has been displayed. And may our “laid down lives” become the posture of seeing Jesus high and lifted up for all to see.

The God of Wonders has not changed and his arm of salvation has not shortened. Our eyes have too often been pulled to look upon the profane rather than focus on the holy. It has clouded our vision for far too long.

We are not to be unaware of what is happening in the world but let us be far more aware of his wonders and his faithful love. We are “heaven’s journalists”, heaven’s sound, heaven’s reporters and citizens of heaven. Even the world is waiting for a good report and longing to see the miraculous. Many are longing for a savior and for something to give them hope. We carry that hope within us.

Isn’t it time to display the God of Wonders and become yielded vessels of his heavenly overflow?

“Yahweh, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth.” Psalm 8:9

Oh the Depths of God!

By Kathi Pelton

“…these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:10

For many days I have been hearing a groaning in my spirit that cries out to His Spirit, “Oh, reveal the depths of God to me!”

In response I feel a swell of the Holy Spirit releasing revelation and encounters into the depths of God. It feels like we are being ushered from the “outer courts” of His heart into the “inner courts.” I believe that many are about to encounter and receive revelation of the depths, heights and width of His love— which contains deep compassion, waves of healing, freedom, wisdom from above and an ability to surrender that lifts us to places in the spirit that we never even dreamed of going to on this side of heaven.

The Spirit of God has searched the depths of the Father and Son— and now He lives within us with that revelation that we can experience. There is a birthing that is taking many from living according to the soul, with occasional spiritual experiences, to living out of their spirit (where His Spirit dwells in us). Our souls will align to the depths of His Spirit which will cause everything to change.

I just keep hearing our beautiful Holy Spirit say, “Come in, come into the depths! Let me submerge you in the depths of the unlimited love of God.”

This is a fresh baptism in the depths of the love of God! It has resurrection power in it and on it. Every dead place will come to life as you yield to this submersion. We were never meant to live in a divided state of being— split identities of sons and orphans that leave us longing for sonship but still eating from the crumbs under the Father’s table when we’ve been invited to come as sons and daughters to eat of the best of His bounty.

We say, “Yes, Spirit of God. Baptize us anew and afresh in the depths of the love of God! We yield to the submersion of our lives into the inner courts of the heart of God. Do what only You can do and resurrect us into sons and daughters that no longer live as orphans.”

WE YIELD…submerge us!

Remain In My Love

Kathi Pelton

Today could have been a real emotional train wreck. “Could have been” are the key words in this sentence. If you follow my writings or my page then you know that 2021 has been nothing short of painful and hard for me. I have wrote about how unfamiliar this place that I am in is to me. It is like a deep gorge that I unexpectedly fell into and now have to walk forward (while disoriented) until I come to the end of it. Then, to add a bit of a “spin” to my already disorienting senses, I received some news today that once again has the potential to change a big part of my life. In the first moments I began to feel sick inside and then I stopped and remembered the lessons from past moments that had the potential to steal my peace. I stopped and asked the Lord to help me and I heard His Spirit say,

“Remain in my love. I have surrounded you in my love today and my love will surround you every day to come.”

I suddenly realized that I was beginning to grieve something that hasn’t even happened yet. I was leaving today and concerning myself with tomorrow. Through all of life’s ebbs and flows there has always been a gift of grace given to me in the moment that I had to walk through a change or transition. When we remain in the moment that we are in, allowing the love that we are continually surrounded in to fill that space, there is peace and grace restored. Yet, when we move into the “yet to come” and the assumptions of what that will look and feel like, we get outside of God’s grace and timetable, forcing us to pull on our own strength and limited understanding.

I have hesitated writing during this season that is personally so difficult for me. The past five previous years have been “mostly” beautiful and writing from that place was a great joy. Writing from a vulnerable place and from this place of grief is hard and it risks misunderstanding by my readers. But, I felt that the Lord asked me to write through the pain and to learn deeper truths from the pain. This is not my first time in the “Valley of Baca” (Trouble) but it is yet another opportunity for me to apply all that I learned on the mountain tops and valleys of past seasons so that I can see Christ established in me all the more. My prayer is that my journey can help others.

If you are in a mountain top season; gather fruit, drink deep of the cool rivers of refreshing and listen to the voice that is clear. If you are in the hill country enjoy the grace of the abiding and steady growth. And if you are in the valley gorge let faith cause you to step forward into the unknown, let the clear voice that you heard on the mountaintop echo into your silence, let the testimonies of old prophesy to your hope– and get still enough to let His love envelope you. In every one of these places and seasons…above all else, REMAIN IN HIS LOVE.

His love is the one sure thing in every place and every season. No matter what lies ahead, His love will be there. No matter what is happening now, His love is with you. No matter what lies behind, His love covers it all. You can move forward as you are held tight in the grip of His everlasting love. His love will never fail you or leave you in want.

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4-5

Remain in His love and watch what beautiful fruit your life will produce in every season.
