Life unfolds in phases, like the seasons, or the ebb and flow of the ocean tide. Such has been the unfolding of my life, as I’m sure so many can relate concerning your own lives. Currently, as I see it, I am journeying down the road of phase three of my life.
In October 1987, I had a LIFE CHANGINGING ENCOUNTER WITH THE LORD…at home…by myself. I cried out to Jesus while in a state of desperation and in a puddle of tears on my living room floor. He made Himself very real to me when I flipped opened my Bible and my eyes fell on the scripture, Proverbs 3:5 & 6…Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your on insight or understanding, but in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. At that moment, Holy Spirit entered my heart, and I literally felt the burdens of life lift off my shoulders. I was born again!
A few months into this marriage in March 2001, I had another encounter with the Lord. While in the kitchen cooking, I felt the Presence of the Lord swoop in so strongly that I turned around to see who was there. I immediately knew it was the Lord and the urgency I sensed from Him. So I turned off the stove and ran up two flights of stairs to the room I liked to pray in. I literally dove onto the floor stretched out on my face in very deep intercession like I had never experienced before…it was as if the prayers were coming up from my toes! I knew there was strong purpose in the intercession and that the Lord had great need of something from me…He spoke saying, “Will you accept the call?” I felt the seriousness of His request and with much contemplation, I answered the call and said, “Yes, Lord”.
Now, fast forward through the many wilderness years which all who accept God’s call must endure and be tested and tried. Glory to God, His love endures forever! Phase three of my life…God’s Fire begins!
Experiencing the Fire of God is spectacular! My first experience was at a large healing crusade in 2004…when it hit me, my body exploded in a glorious spasm and I crawled backward out of my stadium seat into the lap of the lady in the row behind me…my clothes all twisted and disheveled…and not understanding WHAT had just taken place exactly, but was totally fascinated and hungry for more! Since then, God’s Fire has “hit” me many times…mostly when in Gabriel’s meetings and a couple of times at home.
transition into phase three where I presently live has everything to do with
God’s plan and purposes regarding His soon coming outpouring of fire and Glory! He’s called me specifically to His
intercession ministry to spiritually birth and pray forth His will for Gabriel
Heymans Ministries as leading the way to the end-time revival.
