Sunday night. A great time to reflect upon the coming week and the week that has past. I'm trying hard to document this summer. The Lord has shown me that this summer is important in more than one way. I really am stepping into the position of who I truly am in Christ. He has given me perspective, insight, and, most of all intimacy with himself. What an adventure!

Tonight I got to share a little bit about what happened at the Psychic Fair. God is so good! Pastor Juan, Deidre, Jill, and Michelle shared too. It was great. I'm just amazed that God wants to use me, you know? Even just standing up there with them, I'm thinking "wow, God, you're just whipping me up here, huh?" I shared a little bit about what God showed me throughout our day at the psychic fair. We are told in scripture to eagerly desire the gift of prophecy. I found my heart stirred like it has never before been as I witnessed the prophetic at work.
So, I just shared my heart. Basically, saying to everyone.. I'm new at this prophetic stuff. I took a risk by being there. It was an act of faith and trust. Be available. God wants to use you - you don't have to be an 'expert'. I'm certainly not, but I was able to speak life and encouragement into searching people's lives. Glory to God ;)

A Summer Night at the Higgins'

I'm enjoying an evening home tonight. I'm home before 11pm for once! On these summer nights I can usually be found at the Bou! I'm trying to enjoy my apartment, you know. I lit some candles, just chillin on the couch.

We met for small group tonight and it was great. Today was actually the first night I have been able to make it since I've been busy with dance on Thursday nights up until this point.
Chris and Amanda spoke about faith and then we just released it! Some powerful scriptures in Hebrews about faith..

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

We wrote down some things that we are believing God for in the coming days, weeks, months, years..

I'm having faith for several things. One of my "biggies" is believing God for a marriage that will be a pure testimony of His goodness. My faith has been built up these past few weeks. I'm believing God for His timing to be perfect for us! I can't wait to give glory to God for what He does. It's going to be big.
A godly man.. and not just any godly man (cause they are out there) but the one that God would prepare and bring to me!

I'm believing and declaring that this will come to pass. As we sat outside on this beautiful night. Believers gathered together, edifying one another, I just sat there thinking about the testimony. My marriage will be a testimony! My heart is filled with faith. Thank you, Lord, for the faith-filled declarations made tonight! Let each one come to pass!

Summer Fun

It is hard to believe that June is almost over! Summer 2010 has gotten off to a great start and I'm expecting some amazing things to come.

I'm sitting at Caribou! Holy Spirit has invaded this atmosphere here and I just love observing it. God's people sprawled all over this place. A Bible study going on outside, a group from New Life just met here before a treasure hunt.

I'm still amazed and thankful for all that God has done these last few weeks. I find myself just in awe of what He's doing. My constant desire is that I would be 'good soil'.. ready to receive and grow!

I'm hoping to blog here more in the next few weeks, especially as I prepare to go to El Salvador. This is a nice supplement to a journal, where I can share with others, and have an online record and reminder of all that God is doing in my life and the lives of those around me.
Have a great week!!

Psychic Fair

I'm totally blown away and still attempting to process all that God has done this weekend.
The highlight being a local Psychic Fair that we held an outreach at this past Saturday.
People respond to love. It's amazing what a hug, an encouraging word, and a blessing can do for searching souls. I saw the prophetic actively at work. It was amazing and I'm desiring for God to use me like He's used those around me. Wow. People sat down and were willing to receive a prophetic word from God over their life. Awesome!

It was wild because the woman who was organizing this psychic event called for prayer first thing in the morning. She lead the prayer and asked Pastor Juan to close in prayer after her. Her prayer blew us all away. She asked that everyone be filled with the Holy Spirit. Hahaha! It was wild. Then she spent the day doing astrology readings at a booth. I'm still trying to process.

God showed up big. For each person we encountered, we asked for the Holy Spirit to show up before we even said anything. I did spend a lot of time just interceding and observing as others really moved in the prophetic. Tears of release and peace flowed from people's faces!

Then came the rain! A powerful moment with a sweet young lady and the Holy Spirit. Thunder was brewing and the heavens opened up as she declared freedom from past hurts and a cleansing for a new start in life. I'm blown away by how prophetic that moment was - rain suddenly beginning to pour down!

Another highlight - two of the "staff" members who were helping to organize the psychic fair ended up in church this morning and received salvation! Hallelujah!

And we prayed for one of the astrology readers too! She was awesome -Mimi- and she was totally decked out in her psychic garb (head wrap, long flowing skirt!) She was open and willing to hear what the living God has to say about her!

Summer 2010

Here comes summer. Yes, the most wonderful time of the year. I try to savor these moments. The 'beginning of summer' moments. Four more days with my class. Then I'll have four years of teaching under my belt. Wow!

I'm watching the rain right now. Boy, is it raining. Listening to a band that I just discovered - Hammock - Awesome chill, mostly instrumental music - perfect for a rainy day.

I'm excited about summer. My trip to El Salvador is coming up. It's going to be amazing. Praying that God would use me however he wants. Excited just to get out of the USA, you know, out of these "comforts".

My mom and I will also be traveling to NYC this summer. A real vacation! We went a few years back and decided that it was time to return. Shopping, shows, and eating here we come!

God is teaching me about the finished work of the cross. I attended a conference at VCC about 2 weeks ago and got totally rocked. It was a great time of refreshing, worship, and impartation. Made some great kingdom connections. I want to start this summer in a season of rest and abiding with the Lord. Help me Holy Spirit.

Well, here's to summer 2010. Here we go!
