As I was saying, the first time I heard God’s voice clearly was in 2006. I woke up from a vivid dream with the words: “Be transparent” vibrating into my whole being. spirit, soul and body. I made an entry into my journal, then looked up the meaning of transparent. Once I understood what it meant to be transparent, I made a promise to God to always tell Him the good, the bad and the ugly.
The number one reason why I love God so much is because He he so loving and merciful, that He gets down to you level in other to bring you higher. He uses words and concepts that you are able to comprehend in your level of maturity. When i find myself struggling to read the bible, falling asleep the minute i start reading; I cried out to Him. His answer, “Read one verse over and over again until you get from your head to your heart.” I did not fully understand the process, so He demonstrated it to me. I took Colossians 1:27 (NLT)
“For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”
After reading this verse over and over, I personalized it. So i will say Christ in me the hope of glory. I began having open visions every time I kneel down to pray. To have conversations with The Lord. I began to understand that this verse had made its way from my head into my heart because i truly believed it. I red a little book by Brother Lawrence: The Practice of God’s Presence, and began to put into practice Joyce Myers’s book: The Secret Power of Speaking God’s Word. Thus began my spiritual growth journey.
Stay tuned for part 3.
