I’ll never forget that weekend when I heard the Lord speak to me. I was at a business event when the Holy Spirit whispered to my heart, “The Sacred Woman.” I instinctively knew He was giving me an expanded vision for the business I was building. What I didn’t realize though, was that I was about to live a “Joseph” adventure of receiving a promise and then watching as everything went in the opposite direction of that promise.
Within weeks of receiving this word, I entered a severe financial crisis. The stress and anxiety was affecting my health on every level and I woke up many nights in a cold sweat with fear consuming me. One night I awoke around 3:00 a.m. with fear and anxiety weighing so heavily on me I cried out to the Lord, begging Him to do something about my “mountain of debt.” In was in that moment I clearly heard Him say, “your mountain of debt isn’t the problem. It’s the fear that is the problem.”
It’s been said that “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear,” and after hearing those words from the Lord that night, I was ready to look at my situation from a different perspective – His perspective! My search led me directly to Graham Cooke’s ministry. I devoured his teachings and books. Brilliant TV became my best friend when I woke up in the middle of the night paralyzed with fear. I knew in my heart it was a “now” time for me to be connected to Graham’s ministry.
Over the course of the next 12 months I was amazed as the evidences of transformation started mounting up. I was being changed from the inside out and it literally felt as though even my cells were shifting. Interestingly enough, my financial situation got worse. I was being audited by the IRS, yet my heart was at peace. The home that drained my finances wouldn’t sell, yet, I was living in rest. The contracting job I had secured was suddenly canceled, yet, I found myself fixing my eyes on the Lord and Who He was being to me during this season. So it was natural next step for me to apply to The Warrior Commission and explore in an even deeper way the transformation I was experiencing.
Although these last three and a half years have been challenging, the reward of my deepening relationship with Jesus makes it all worth it. And as a member of TWC, the evidences of my transformation continue to increase as I spend time with the Lord and He brings revelation around my true identity. I love how I’m learning to see every situation that enters my life from a higher plane. And I love that I now have a deep understanding that every obstacle I face, including this one, has an incredible promise attached to it!
