A few years ago after graduating from my Master’s Degree Program, I was so zombified from the weight of the coursework and was looking forward to time off. But the day after the Monday after my last exam, I woke up feeling like an orphan. I had no new direction.
My dad came down to visit for the convocation. So he took me out to the Airport Fellowship Church. We got there and they were holding a prophetic encounter for anyone interested in lining up. So, I got in line.
After waiting 45 minutes, a group of 3 girls called me over. I sat down. I was horribly depressed and now not confident from the looks of them. The first girl spoke.
“I sense you have a wall around you and God just wants to help you take it down. Brick by brick. Every brick you take down, He will multiply until there are no walls between you and Him or anyone else anymore. Just love.”
The second girl spoke. “I see a windmill”, she said.
The third girl spoke. “I’m from Brazil. In my country, we HUG people”, she hugged herself. “I sense right now, God just wants to give you a great big HUG”.
They gave me the tape. I sat back down to wait for my dad to finish so we could leave.
After waiting a few minutes, he waved me over. There were a group of 3 people, 2 men and 1 woman – all mature – wanting to speak with me.
Dad left and they sat me down. The man in the middle spoke. He had a passage from the Bible he wanted to read to me.
“How do I lead these people, Lord, when I am so young and these people are so many?”
I started to weep great waves of grief. He kept reading and reading and saying and doing things. And each scripture ripped through the mysteries of my mind and put their gentle finger on what my problems, hopes, fears, and dreams were.
I want to know. I want to know how to lead people. To create unity and harmony and agreement and understanding. Is that too much to ask? Will I ever have the wisdom to do it? This is my prayer. This was my prophecy. These are my Bible verses.
