Two years ago when Neil and I intentionally began praying together, the Lord told me to go back to the beginning…back to the garden…and about a month ago, I intentionally began praying for us and our marriage again. This morning during prayer, I heard the Lord say “go on an adventure and look for daisies.” I told Neil and he agreed to go on a walk with me until we found daisies. I thought it was fun, as this was in a way, pointing me back to the garden, and His original plan for our marriage and His children…the place where Adam and Eve had complete and constant fellowship and communion with Him and where we should abide!
Along Neil and I’s walk, we saw numerous wild flowers, all beautiful. I asked the Lord why daisies and He brought to my remembrance that these are the flowers one often uses to pull off the petals to discover if their love interest has the same feelings towards them…”he loves me…he loves me not…” The Lord reminded me that there is no question that He loves me and He definitely loves each and every one of us!
Recently, the Lord has been prompting me to begin preparing for His return and this was also a prophetic act to Him saying that I am ready and will continue moving forward as He instructs and leads, amen?
Yesterday, on the way back to Mississippi, a friend of mine said she saw a scissor tail bird and felt it was a word for Neil and I. She explained they attack when they are defending their homes. Neil and I saw many scissor tailed birds in a field. As soon as we did, we made proclamations and declarations of Jesus ruling and reigning over our marriage, family, and home!
Later this afternoon, Neil and I went over to Aunt Vicky and Uncle Steve’s. On their property, there were as many daisies as the eye could see! Neil asked if I could pick some and Uncle Steve shared the story of he and Aunt Vicky’s first date. He explained he found out that daisies were Aunt Vicky’s favorite flower, so he bought out three floral shops and filled up his entire car with them! How neat is it that the Lord would bring me back to first loves and Jesus being mine? Oh, how I love the way He woes us to Himself!
