You’re not sinking, you’re learning how to walk on water!

Hold tight to the Anchor of HOPE

Hold tight to the Anchor of HOPE

This morning, I heard the Lord repeat the following:

You’re not sinking, you’re learning how to walk on water! You’re not sinking, you’re learning how to walk on water! You’re not sinking, you’re learning how to walk on water! 

God Almighty is reaching down (into the depths of His people) to uncover His sons and daughters who have not forsaken Him. He is reaching down to unveil those who have trusted Him in their darkest hours. He is uncovering and unveiling individuals who have continued to trust Him–even through intense storms and long travail they have continued to move in faith.

And the Lord says, I have seen you. You have been at the depths of the ocean, in the depths of despair, for so, so long. You have been at the depths of the sea, for so, so long…

AND YET you have trusted, and you have trusted, and you have trusted... 

Even in the darkest storms with no end seemingly in sight, you trusted–you searched and you sought the Anchor of your soul! Even in the depths of despair and great travail you sought the Anchor of LIFE. You sought the Anchor of HOPE. 

You searched for THE ANCHOR and it’s been found! It’s been found! 

Cling and hold tight–for the Anchor of Hope is to pull you upright! Cling and hold tight–for the Anchor of Hope is to pull you upright! 

I’m bringing you to the surface now. I’m bringing you to the surface of My Kingdom. I’m bringing you up now. I’m bringing you up now! I’m bringing you up, as I did Joseph–pulling you up from the pit–from the depths of despair.  

I’m bringing you up! I’m bringing you up to stand–to stand and walk on water with Me!

I'm taking you into a new place. I Am bringing you into a new place. Hold on tight. Hold on tight to the Anchor of Hope as I suddenly bring you into this new place...

Hold on tight (in the days and weeks ahead) as I teach you how to move in this new place with Me. This is a time of great momentum and intensified acceleration. Very quickly you will go from walking on the seabed to learning to walk on water with Me (like an anchor being pulled from the depths to join the momentum of its ship yet again). 

I Am bringing you up with great momentum and acceleration!

I have fostered your trust. I have fostered your growth. I have fostered your hope. I have fostered your skill–And now you are equipped! I have fashioned the shoes of shalom securely upon your feet. Now, in these shoes, you are equipped to carry My gospel to the seas of humanity–with humility, love, and power! 

You, My treasured ones! You are the treasures of My heart–My diamonds formed under great pressure. Now I Am uncovering you, bringing you up and into the LIGHT–unveiling you from the depths of great travail. You are My chosen ones–sons and daughters I have been shaping and forming in the hiddenness of storms and in the darkness of great travail. 

And though darkness attempted to steal your souls, you continued to looked for the LIGHT! You looked up–And looked for the LIGHT! You looked for The Anchor of your souls, the very One who walks on water. And you chose to continue on–in faith and in trust, you chose to continue on!

Now this is your day, for I’m bringing you up! This is a new day–


You are My treasured ones–My sons and daughters who will dare to walk on water (with Me) and carry My Word and My Nature to the seas of humanity. You are graced with My peace and you are graced with My power… 

And you are graced with humility! For you know…that you know…that you know…you could never walk on water without Me!

2019 - Learning to Embrace the Beauty of Intensity - Part 1

I believe many of us experienced this past year to not only be a seemingly speedy adventure, but also quite intense at times. It’s been a year of learning how to do the familiar, but in an entirely new way–newness mixed with the inevitable unknown. And it has been a year of seeing things come back-around–a year of pondering past seasons while dreaming of future days.

Personally, 2018 could be summed up as a year of learning to sail with no map and blindfolded as well!–I’ve journeyed with an ever-present holy knowings. Keep going, keep going…my heart senses the winds of destiny are about to blow, yet when I look to the horizon it remains blanketed in a quiet, foggy mist. Countless days I’ve traveled like a sailor without a compass–simply willing my heart to stay tuned to quiet whispers of my Creator Captain, and my spirit sensitive to the ever increasing holy knowings stirring deep within.

Yes, 2018 has proved to be rather intense, but I have discovered God’s empowering grace to be just as intense. His grace has proved to be with me, empowering me in ways beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Grace now travels with me…and I choose to remain in His Shadow.

I believe God is in the process of teaching us how to abide and dwell in His empowering grace. 

Many of the sons and daughters of God are in the process of learning how to lean-inhow to lean-in hard and fast. Like an anchor leaning in to the seafloor to hold the ship secure in the storm, God is training us to lean our hearts into His. 

I believe in these days, many are learning the art of leaning into the heart of God, while we navigate the storms of continued circumstances and adversities. And in the midst of it all, God is lovingly teaching us how to keep our eyes fixed upon the Light of the horizon and our hearts set upon the Everlasting Son…
