Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.
I received this message right before we were to leave Sierra Leone and head to Ghana. It has definitely been an adjustment now, as a wife. All my time is taken up with Derrick, which is not a bad thing, but something very new for me since I have been alone and able to do what I wanted with my time. But now, having to be available for another so readily, is something new.
(Sorry for all the noise in the background, you guys. They’re working on a nearby house, and I can’t close the window. So I hope you guys can hear me. So, if you guys can hear me…).
So anyways, that is why you guys haven’t received messages from me. Forgive me. There are a few more messages coming. I even thought Jesus would be upset. However, He has been so sweet through the Rhemas — and very clear in this message — that He is in my husband and My husband is in Him. So I am spending time with Him. It sounds so weird to say, “My husband”, guys….
From the previous message the Lord wanted me to stay hidden and not share with my family that I was coming to Ghana. However, that all changed once the Lord surprised me with this marriage. I had to tell them, and my Mom began to pressure us that we needed to not keep it private but tell my other family members, [who] are my cousin and aunt, the same ones doing witchcraft against us. Honestly, I didn’t want to share this celebration with them or really see them.
Then Derrick and I were dealing with baggage from his past that we were having to work through that was painful at times for me — as I was really struggling to overcome my insecurities in this marriage and [to] be confident in who I was — and trustful of him and the Lord’s promises concerning our marriage.
I had a pulled a Rhema that morning that said,
“Bind a Spirit of jealousy, competition, and comparison.”
That summed all my feelings and I have been binding and praying this prayer ever since.
I came before the Lord this morning saying:
Good morning, Lord. I am in awe at your goodness, Lord. Although, I have fumbled my way through certain emotions, tests, and assignments that came — even up until the very day of our wedding. Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness. Help me to come to you daily to hear from your heart. I miss you, Jesus.
“My beloved, I have never been more close. All the time you have spent with Derrick has also been with Me. Do not fret or concern yourself with many things that rise up to cause you insecurity. Truly, that part of your heart will be healed very soon as you both grow together in love and continue to be naked before one another, even down to the hidden thoughts.
“And that is why he is a beautiful man. Much grace has been given to him and he is responding beautifully — and will continue to.”
As an aside guys, that is one thing Derrick has made a commitment to — [to] be very honest with me. Brutal, transparent, and [nakedly] honest with me. He has been convicted in telling me even the suggestions and thoughts that come to his mind, so I know how to pray. And we made it a point to have no private conversations between us — but to tell one another what is always going on, so there is no room for the enemy to bring lies. I am honest with him as well. It’s quite amazing and I pray the Lord continues to sustain us in this grace. I see now [that] this relationship is to mirror that of Heaven where all thoughts are made bare. I get it now — a marriage for the preparation of eternity
“You both are a safe place for one another to grow amidst your weaknesses, fears, doubts, and failures. Do not doubt My words to you concerning your marriage. It will be beautiful, indeed. You are growing more and more in trust with Me and in him. The Rhema given to you today was to ensure you always come to Me for My opinion, Beloved.”
And as an aside, the Lord is speaking of another Rhema I received warning me not to take the counsel of anyone but to follow His voice in my heart.
“You both will be given counsel by numerous people — loved ones, friends, and those even coming across [as] pious. But it’s best you both submit to one another, then submit to Me. I speak to your heart, Beloved — do not be moved by the waves and storms of the words of others, because they will come.
“Stand in faith in what I have spoken and the direction I am taking you both. Sometimes family can be the most intrusive and the most damaging. They think they know best, but My ways are so much higher than theirs and I am teaching you and Derrick now to both have My mind and My thoughts.
“I will continue to speak to you because you have need of My friendship, My words, and counsel. And in time, Derrick will come to see the accuracy of all you tell him —— and value your wisdom, counsel, and these messages I give you, more than gold. Be patient with him, Beloved. And do not worry — because you have obeyed, both of you will live out your life in prosperity, fruitfulness, rest, and contentment. There will always be sacrifices and sufferings that I will permit to sanctify you both. But with Me in the middle, there is nothing that you two cannot conquer.
“I know, many things have been troubling you, but take each one and leave it at My feet. I am faithful and I haven’t brought you both this far to leave you. Trust Me, Beloved One.
“Now during your trip in Ghana, there will be some turbulence in various situations that will present [themselves]. I need you not to be fearful of your enemies. I have said it before, and it bears repeating — they are more fearful of you. You both — do not be afraid to share the union that I have put together because it testifies of My mercy. I am protecting you two. This marriage will not fail.
I said to you — to love your enemies, do good to them and bless those who have cursed you. So that is exactly what I want you to do now. I want you to love them. When you see them, bless them even, and find a way to do some type of good to them so they can get a taste of My mercy. A taste of My love.
“Go forth to establish the City of God properly upon arrival. Be sensitive to My spirit and leading — and go out without fear to the destitute, the suffering, the poor — and most importantly, the children. They are awaiting your arrival in the spirit. You cannot hear the cry of the little ones as I do — crying out for a hand, crying out for help, crying out for someone to love them, crying out for someone to rescue them from their lives of begging and being used as means on income for their families.
‘First present yourself in love — not to teach, but to love — just as you did with those precious little ones yesterday. Do you see how easy that was?”
And here Jesus is speaking of some precious little boys I met when I was taken to the highest peak in Sierra Leone. There were about seven of them begging. I began to talk with them and ask their names — befriending them. We prayed together and the children let me know their needs. You will see them in the next video.
“You are anointed to draw many children to Me because they see Me in you in— your smile, in your gentleness, and in your motherly love. So speak to the children, get to know them and the needs of their parents. Meet their need and that is how you will have an impact to break through their hearts.
You and Derrick continue to pray together every morning without ceasing. I am giving you both a new level and a new grace of prayer and supplication that will be needed very much in this new season you both are in. Tell Derrick not to rush through this time because it will be — and it is the most important time of his life and of each day.
I will give him insight, speak to His heart, prompt him with inspiration and direction. Have him bring everything you guys are dealing with before Me. Not just intercession for the nations and others, but I desire to be a part of every detail of your lives, and I will work miracles. That is all for now, My beloved one. Go forth today with great joy and peace in what I am doing. Let all anxiety fall to the wayside. I will be here again tomorrow to speak to your heart.”
And that was the end of Jesus’ message.
Luke 6: 27-36
“But to you who are listening, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks of you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
Thank you, family, so much for your patience, your love, encouragement, and support in this journey. We have exciting news that Brother Juniper will be returning back to Sierra Leone rather quickly. And now, in Ghana, we are in need of provision more than ever to really help these children and get Heartdwellers Ghana set up. Our donations are low so whatever you can give, would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much for your support. God bless you! Until the next message.
