Tonight's wrap up

I got in after 1 am from talking to ladies and I'm real tired, and will post the main points of the 3 speakers sometime in the next week, as well as Beth's message notes.

The service was AMAZING tonight and Martha Tennison was the closing speaker for today. (George Wood is in the morning. Well...should I say "later" this morning. Right now as I type this it's almost 2 am Phoenix time.

At the close of the service Martha had everyone go through a prayer/anointing line. After service Dawn asked me what stood out to me most about tonight's service, from my personal perspective and I said that it showed me once again how real the gifts of the spirit are. For the past 3 months I had heard nothing but words of prophecy and wisdom, and knowledge from people who said things like, "you're in a battle...you're tired...but the breakthrough is on the way...the tide is going to turn...God is going to give you victory, yada yada yada." All that was 100% right on target. It was what the true Word of the Lord was for that time. Well...

Tonight during the prayer line three people in particular prayed over me and had a word...Shemeca Black was the first, followed by Dr. Odonna Atwell, and then Dr. Lori O'Dea. Seriously, every word was soooooooooooooo on target. It proves to me once again the power of the gifts. The first word Shemeca gave me was, "The Lord says to you, the storm is over now! You are in a time, and will continue in a time of joy...rejoicing...refreshing! This is for you and your family and your church! The Lord says that he has seen your sacrifice. He has seen things you have given up and things you have wondered about and He says that NOW is the time for your harvest, for your time of joy and all you have to do right now is ENJOY it."

Amazing, huh? Okay, so every word I received tonight was along these lines. Nothing about a battle. Nothing about depression. Nothing about hanging on. Nothing about waiting for my breakthrough. All the Lord said tonight were victorious statements of the present!

We prayed, worshipped, just stood, knelt or laid down under the glory of God for a long time. Then we talked and talked. I stayed until 1 am with Lori O'Dea and Cheryl Taylor. Then headed to my room but Dawn was still up, so we talked some more. They (Dawn and Sheri) are now asleep but I get so keyed up after these things I can't sleep right away so I'm blogging in the dark. Part of why I can't transfer the notes right now from the sessions! All in good time.

Tomorrow we will hear Dr. Wood and then head to Dawn's house...where we're set for an amazing weekend with Dawn and Randy and their church!
