Good morning everyone,

Prayer this morning was amazing! I had a small vision! I was in heaven as an adult but I felt like a very small child and I was before Gods throne and his throne was very big I could not see a face but a smile when I said, "look look!" And I began to dance before God as my father and he was so filled with joy! I thought of a dance that was very complicated a ballerina could not execute this move and I did it first try in heaven. It showed me how we can do anything no limitations in heaven so wonderful and I could not see a face just a huge man on a huge throne with a huge smile. There was sunshine emitting but it was not blinding it was to discern happy atmosphere! It was very beautiful! I could even feel his excitement to watch me and I could feel this same genuine excitement that he had for others if they desired to come before his throne! It was just sooo heart warming this love and genuineness!

When I came back from my slight trip to Las Vegas I came back heavy. I was unsure if I had enough faith for the new obstacle that had presented itself to me from visiting home. It wore me down so bad I felt nothing inside just tears running down my face at the most random parts of my day. I asked the Lord why and called to the Lord (literally like two weeks ago in Vegas) asking for guidance/confirmation on some specific things because the news I received was just so mind blowing. Within that same hour of praying Pastor Faith texted me and I just cried harder because I knew what I was experiencing was real. I felt my most valuable weapon being attacked. I didn't want to talk to God about it.

When I came to Dover I hid behind my smile. During prayer and worship for the Easter Retreat I prayed for my heart to not be hardened towards God because I could feel me shutting down in disbelief. I really didn't want to exercise great faith because it seemed too painful...this obstacle. At the retreat by the grace of God I just sung and sung for God and it removed the barriers around my heart and brought out the worshipper in me. The presence of God gave me the rest/peace inside I was not feeling. He empathized with my sorrow and comforted me in my pain but most importantly strengthened me. I received a very simple but powerful word from Pastor Faith. "Submit and Obey" I know I cannot let this obstacle over take me! After the retreat and pure prayer and worship I left feeling like I could endure!

Like my continual faith and prayers could really produce a miracle from God in my life! I have to be honest I am still not vibrant this bad news has saddened me deeply but I am more hopeful than before. In fact I was not that hopeful at all. I am reminded of His words "Don't worry. I will fix it."  I will do my best to put my trust in him.
