Well! Well! Well!-Stone One

Welcome Back LE Family  I have missed you!🥰

 Happy New Year lovelies………. we have officially made it into 2023!

Can you believe it has been a whole year since we engaged over a blog, after I was prompted to cease the Monthly Script Time series for 2022. 

Well anyway we are back in 2023 and I am excited to introduce a Brand  New Series called: “The Significant 12″ 


-The Significant 12-


The Significant 12 series is a personal blog, where I will be sharing little snippets of significant events in my life over the past 12 months while I have been away from blogging.

It will include encounters I have experienced with the Holy Spirit in areas of Healing, Deliverance, Growth, Excitement, Hope and Transformation, with the hope of inspiring and motivating your spiritual life and personal walk with God. 


-The Key Scriptures-


There are two main key scriptures that will be covering the basics of our theme throughout this 12-month series as follows:

Joshua 3- Crossing the Jordan River 

John 4-Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman

2021-2022 Cross Over (New Years Eve)


Ok so lets start with New Years Eve 2021. There has been so much change in my life, I have changed church but am not yet rooted. I haven’t really got any hobbies, but have an  incredibly busy with Life Essence Housing (not even sure it’s something I want to do anymore)? I have all these plates that I’m spinning, and oh yes I am still very much single! Saved and single! (another story coming soon)

As I continued my reflections on NYE I realized the  one thing I was craving the most was to see more of God’s miracles, signs and wonders here on earth and within my life!

With this in mind I asked myself a few key questions, maybe questions that most of us entering the New Year tend to ask ourselves when we are being specific with our purpose:

  1. How am I going to cross over from 2021 into the new year of 2022?
  2. What was going to stay in 2021?
  3. What was coming into 2022?
  4. How am I going to get across 2022? 

Just like those who came before us (Moses, Joshua and the Israelites) we all need the presence of God in our lives, with the latter needing the Ark of the convent (symbolic of the presence of God) to go ahead of them and make a safe way to cross over the river Jordan.

Then we  have those Significant Memorial Stones placed within the Jordan when the Israelites made it over (which represented the 12 tribes of Judah).  They were Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon, Zebulun, Judah and Benjamin.

(Click for biblical reference on the 12 tribes)

Reflections continuing…..just like the 12  tribes of Israel I knew I needed God  to make it across my own personal Jordan in 2022. I knew I needed Jesus every step of the way and that every stone was a representation of the 12 months of 2022 …. and with this mindset I set on my journey into the end of the year!

 


-Well! Well! Well! I am sitting at the Well-


The only way to bring in the New Year for me is to bring it in with God, however this New Year as I said I wanted to go deep and deeper still,  deep into the depths of the living water.

The psalmist laments,

“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me”

(Psalm 42:7). 

I dedicate NYE 2021 to God with a day of fasting and prayer with my dear friend and mentor, before we both attend a night of worship within our separate churches.

We are that woman, I am that woman, What woman you ask? 

I am the woman at the well sitting with Jesus, asking Him to give me a drink of the living water,  I’m so thirsty for the things of God, I want so desperately to be in his will, to see and experience His miracles signs and wonders here on the earth and in my own personal life!

John 4-Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman


-Praise & Worship-


Praise and worship are such an important part of connecting with God for me, this song helps me to usher myself into the presence of God and ask Him for more of Him in my life on NYE 2021

Listen to this amazing worship song- “More of You” By Lucy Grimble

As me and my mentor continue our NYE journey we sit at the feet of Jesus at the well of his living water. We pray, we repent, we worship, we give thanks, we make our requests known, and we break bread in remembrance of Jesus’s work on the cross. (Holy Communion)

I create a list of the  things that I feel sure I’m taking into the next year (2022) and a list of the things that I’m definitely going to be leaving behind (2021), and also a list of the things I felt  confused or unsure about.

The list includes key areas of my life such as my Spiritual Growth, Family, Key Relationships, Ministry, and Work.

I again ask God my key questions in relation to the different areas of my life:

  1. How am I going to cross over from 2021 into the new year of 2022?
  2. What was going to stay in 2021?
  3. What was coming into 2022?
  4. How am I going to get across 2022?

-God’s Answer-

Now you may think that God answered all my questions at once, well he didn’t, He answered in parts!

Over the next 11 months, I will detail key moments where God showed up and prayers were answered (kind of like ‘mile Stones’)

-God’s Word-

(The Power of Fasting)!

On NYE  during my fast God gave me a personal word  for 2022: SIGNIFICANT!

SIGNIFICANT MEANING: Purpose, the meaning of life, Importance, worthy of attention, words or events.

God said to me that 2022 was going to be a year of significance, it is a year of rooting and growing in Christ in spirit and truth. This is the year of preparation for my calling into ministry and walking with the authority and anointing God has given me.

2022 also symbolized the 8th year of me truly following Christ. The number 8 biblically represents New Beginnings/New Creation/New Born.

God said to me that there would be significant events and significant milestones this year that would  and align with God’s promises for my life that would come to fruition.

This is why this year is so important and so SIGNIFICANT!


-Reflection and Meditation-


As you sit and reflect on this blog I am pretty sure you have had some thoughts about your own life, and maybe where you have or haven’t experienced God?

You maybe asking yourself:

  1. How am I communicating with God?
  2. Am I inviting God into all areas of my life or only parts?
  3. Do I need to sit at the well?

Well, the Good news is God is always available! You can communicate and invite him into your life and situation at any given moment, you don’t have to wait for NYE or a special occasion or even until you think you have it all together!

Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8


I hope and pray that what I have shared so far is a comforting and timely word for you.

Now you have been introduced to the significant 12,  I pray you feel lead to stay tuned, and follow my journey and testimony of how inviting God into my year brought about  Holy Spirit inspired Healing, Deliverance, Growth, Excitement, Hope and Transformation. 

As you start 2023 I hope each  of my 12 stories inspire you and brings you closer to the Lord .. the best is yet to come!

 

(Below is a picture of my partially completed  creative work that will encapsulate the year and the stories to come).

Enjoy!
