In June 1985, after I was married and had my third child, God spoke to me through
scripture to reveal that he was going to use me in the area of a prophetess. Again, it is vivid to me even today; I was in my hallway sitting on the stairs reading the Word. He led me to specific scriptures in Deuteronomy 13, Jeremiah 1 & 23 and as I began to read, it was as if a ‘spiritual light bulb’ came on and the Spirit of the Lord came upon me. I began to speak in other tongues, weeping and rejoice in Him. I was so full that I could not contain it and I called one of my best friends and let her know. Suddenly, all the dreams and revelation knowledge that I had been experiencing and that I did not understand why, were starting to make sense. Many of the dreams flooded my memory and I began to write them down asking God for interpretation. Up to this point, I had a major struggle with fear, women in ministry and what people thought of me. Many times I felt inferior; however, it was not until I began confessing and standing on the Word that God opened my ‘spiritual’ eyes of the type of calling he had for my life. He gave my 2 Timothy 1:7 ’God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.’ This scripture became my daily food whenever fear would rise up, I denounced it and told Satan...’this is from you and it is not from me, it is not of God and I rebuke you in Jesus name.’ Since that time, I have had many experiences in the prophetic, ministering to individuals as well as in corporate church settings.
