I can hear the rushing of Eagle Falls as I sit on a rock overlooking Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe. Many shades of blue, green, and gray surround me. Thankful for my strength to climb to this place, my heart is full. Early in the morning Jesus called me to come and meet Him here. The vision of God’s beautiful creation comforts and soothes my soul. I pull my journal from my backpack, ready to record the word He has called me to hear.
Why do these tears appear wetting my eyes? I see a heart formed in the clouds and hear an angel whispering, “For you.”
I write the words I hear in my heart,
My everlasting love for you can shelter you, can bring you a peace like today in the busiest intersection of life, in transitions, and in turmoil. Between heaven and earth is My Holy Spirit in you, powerful and gentle, strong with peace, courage that is pure without anything to prove. Who He is, you are becoming. His power is working in you, my beloved, my dear.
The voices of people may come and go, but my voice stands firm and ever present whispering and at times shouting into your heart.
My presence abides in you. Be engaged in my love.
Is there anything you need to fear if I stand guard over your heart?
I am distracted by a loud humming that sounds like an airplane overhead, but there is no plane in sight.
Just like the blaring sound overhead you hear that can distract you, an airplane overhead is loud, so can circumstances in life cause you to wonder… but that sound, that distracting noise cannot change where you now sit… you are in a pleasant place, a peaceful place, resting in my presence. You wonder, when will the noise stop. Refocus. Set your mind on where you are seated in heavenly places, on the side of a mountain. The noise cannot move you, cannot shake you, cannot touch you.
Lord, it is loud. Maybe it’s not just an airplane… it goes on and on and on.
Is it changing where you are seated, does it change your view? Look. Now it’s gone.
It did not change my position or my circumstance… but I am glad that noise is gone.
This is how troubles can affect you. They create noise, but you haven’t moved, nor have I.
I stood with you.
Look around you. What do you see?
I see that I’m seated next to the edge of a rock; just a few feet from danger – it’s fifty feet to the next level.
Are you safe?
Yes. I like it here. There’s adventure and safety with You, Lord. The noise eventually stopped.
The troubles will eventually cease… there will be longer periods of rest compared to noise.
All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory (2 Corinthians 3:18 GNT).
For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms – all because we are one with Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6 NLT).

Let the wind of the Spirit
Blow upon you,
Set your spirit
Free to fly.
A longing in my heart began to stir. I longed go to the ocean to feel the cool sea breeze upon my face, to watch the waves crash against the rocks of the northern coast of California, and to take photos of the lighthouses near Fort Bragg. I love taking my shoes off and allowing the gentle waves wash over my feet as I walk along the shore. I wanted to paint a prophetic picture while looking at the Pacific Ocean. I decided to go, with Jesus.
All things are possible with God.

Where my hand is held
And my voice is heard
My heart is seen
And it is good.
Come, Lord Jesus

The Lord gave me this prophetic picture for the year 2013.
This year will be awesome for Christians. New exciting ministries will be
birthed, launched, and set into motion in HIS LOVE!
This picture flies! Winged creatures represent the presence of God.
For those Believers who have been searching
earnestly for more of His presence and peace, this is the year when the
adventure with Jesus takes wings and flies. Be ready to receive a new anointing
from heaven to bring excitement and peace into your life and into the lives of
any who long to receive MORE of HIM! The Lord is releasing a new thing into our
hearts! This is not a time to withdraw or just decide to stand back and watch.
It is a time to press into Him with more courage and boldness than ever before.
He is waiting for a signal from you to ignite His fire and release His
anointing for new things, more freedom, more joy, more of Him in everyday life.
The body of Christ will be the place where fun happens. Jesus will be taking
many of His children on new adventures with Him! Lives will be changed! Hearts
will be ignited with a fresh love for Jesus and brethren!
Fresh fervent love for Jesus is just a will away.
Let your will be His will.
Come, Lord Jesus, come!

Whisper the wild golden song
To the bright noon day glow.
See the quivering branches
Dancing to twinkling Dew.
If ever there was a feast
To eyes full of longing,
I dare to find You there
Among the quaking aspens.
Gather the violets,
The wild rose
But look for me not today,
For I have gone a’Dancing
In the light of the noonday song.

The Lord of glory laughs out loud,
The angels join and bow,
Our troubles lifted, trials shifted,
Lain down before the crown.
Excerpt from ”Worship” by Lula Adams
When I was a young Christian, I didn’t understand worship. I would join in the singing of songs, but I looked forward to the preaching of the Word of God . I loved to ask questions and study the Bible to gain knowledge. The more I gained intellectually, the more spiritual I thought of myself. I followed Jesus with my mind, and of course, I was careful to stay clear of sin. I actually forgot that before my focus shifted to Biblical knowledge, I believed in miracles. God responded to the cry of my heart and healed someone I loved of cancer. At that time, even before I saw the test results, I knew in my heart that my prayer was answered. But, after over 8 years of focusing only on Biblical knowledge, I not only forgot about miracles, but I began to feel very parched and dry. Something was missing in my walk with God. One night, I finally got to the point where I cried out to God with everything in me to know the truth about Him. I asked the question that burned in my heart, ”Do You move in supernatural power in the present day?”
God answered me that night with power that swept over my entire body in waves of electric energy that filled me with deep peace. How long did it last? I don’t know, but long enough to change my mind to include the supernatural aspect of my faith again and allow room for the gift of tongues. The best single word I can use to describe my experience with God’s power is ecstatic. I was filled with Holy Spirit power!
Everything about my walk with God turned upside down, or I should say, turned right side up. I still study the Word of God and love the Bible. But now, my spirit, body, and my soul (mind, will, and emotions) are involved, and I can soar into the joy of heaven during worship. Something supernatural happens to me in worship. I can sense God’s awesome presence and love in my heart. I often feel so much overwhelming joy in His presence that I laugh outloud.
Since God initially overwhelmed me with Holy Spirit power, I can feel waves of excitement move through me, sometimes with actual goose bumps. This happens often when I worship God, or sometimes when I just speak about Him, or receive revelation as I study the Bible. Worship blesses me and lifts me up so much that I often feel like I must be in heaven. When I find myself struggling with the issues of life, praise and worship will usher in God’s joy, peace, and fresh hope.
I know miracles happen today. I have seen them happen in my life and in other people’ lives, even more since this experience many years ago. Jesus is alive, awesome, and wonderful… the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is worthy of worship. Jesus is supernatural.
I think worship is the best part of fellowship!
Forever we do stand and sing
Forever is today,
Forever is not far away,
We stand and sing.
Also from “Worship” By Lula Adams
If you don’t already experience God’s presence during worship, ask. Cry out to him for MORE. Seek the truth with all your heart. He is very close, waiting for you to seek more of the truth. Jesus is the truth, the way and the life.
My picture is called Sanctification. It shows the Holy Spirit piercing the heart and moving upon a believer with transforming power.
