This word just keeps popping up! Transition is here and I feel it is time! The number 11 for me is very significant. Let me share something that my Daddy showed me!
I was driving to my Dr.'s visit at the Heart Place for sono on my leg (remember I had the chest pains- but have not had any pain since the 11th day)... I left our driveway and soon after saw a butterfly fluttering. I thought- oh, how sweet, you are showing me a sign of new beginnings. Then on Hwy 114, began to see more. I started counting... 2, 3, 4 butterflies, 5, 6, 7... now remember I am on the highway and driving really fast- they just kept fluttering right in my view... felt Holy Spirit hovering over me. I was listening to my Healing cd by Holly Wagner and quoting scriptures with her declaring my healing. My favorite verse that she said- Nahum 1:9- Affliction will not arise a 2nd time. I am claiming that right now! Ok, so then 8 butterflies, oh my! 8- new beginnings- this is so fun! 9...Then exited Hwy and headed towards Dallas, was stopped at a red light and was singing the song..."I am running, running after You, You've become my soul's delight..." decided to open up my sunroof to look up to Heaven and just as I pushed the cover back and looked up... I saw a ladybug fly over me. God, you are giving me so many signs and showing me how much you love me! Was on Pearl Street and saw the 10th butterfly. Turned on the street in front of Baylor Hospital- and saw the 11th Butterfly. At this point I was almost in tears. I pulled into parking space and lifted my eyes. I said thank you and I knew that He was showing me Transition is here! The 11th butterfly... 11 means transition/ stop... This was too good!
I walked in with confidence to the Heart Place and just knew that the results were going to be perfect!
A few days later, my Mom and I went to an amazing special event presenting my life group leader - Kerrie Oles - she has just written her first book and this was the premier night! It was held at Hope Church. We walked in and ladies were walking around with chocolates and dressed so beautifully. Dance Revolution Team was there and they danced beautifully to a song about Grace. Then Kerrie got up to speak. I almost got choked up because she said she had already had her night planned of what she was going to share, she had it down. But for some reason this past week, God had been sharing with her what He wanted to be shared that night. The words TRANSITION came up on the screen. She gave a definition and started sharing some of her story. So many confirmations... my Mom and I went with an expectant heart... and we Received more than we could have asked for! I would love to share everything that Kerrie spoke- but instead you have to read her book. It is called "Invisible Chains- Discovering the freedom of God's grace". Let me just tell you that once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down. You will absolutely love it and I am sooo excited that she is coming to our Embrace Grace class on November 2 and will be sharing with our ladies about these chains that keep us bound. This in itself is such a "God thing" and we are so thankful for her coming to share with us!
She asked if ladies needed to come up front for prayer. My Mom went down and Kerrie prayed with her. My Mom said- I don't even know what to say... she said God knows. Such freedom happened I feel with so many ladies there. Chains be broken... hearts be free. Then the pastor's wife stood up and said, "I don't think God is finished yet." He still wants to do some work. She mentioned the word "confidence" and I knew that was my cue. You see, during the time of my chest pains and other attacks, the enemy tried to rob me of my confidence for a little while. Especially when I went to class and began sharing with our girls at Embrace Grace. It was finally broken the Monday before this event (4 days prior) and I took back my confidence! I felt that I needed to seal this new confidence in prayer and agreement with someone. The lady that prayed with me was so precious. I briefly shared with her the confirmation of Transition andwhat God had been revealing to me. I also told her my confidence had been robbed- but now is back to stay! We joined hands and she kept saying transformation & transition... confidence has been restored... very strong prayer. I told her if she only knew...so thankful!
