During a week of 7 nights of prayer at gateway:61, there were many beautiful moments involving Dyed4you silk (which seems to happen a lot there in general), but we wanted to share a few because it’s always lovely to see banners woven in so beautifully to prayer and worship. In this first one they are a glorious prophetic declaration. Continue reading
We’ve shared before that as devastating as it is when you have breakage in the natural, we believe it parallels breakthrough in the spiritual realm as well. Today I experienced a new thing – I had a silk tear when I was using it. Believe it or not, in the over ten years I’ve been doing this I believe it’s the first time it’s happened to me personally. And as bummed as I was that it happened, I got kind of a cool download from God on why. Continue reading
I shared this on my personal blog, but given the nature of what we do here at Dyed4you and Dyed4you Ministries in general, I felt like this was worth sharing because this is how we strive to operate: in love. We desire to see the Body function in the prophetic in a healthy, biblical way. After having been in a prophetic ministry for over a decade, I have seen how easy it is for it to be used as a weapon and for people to be hurt, disillusioned, and fall away as a result of lack of teaching in the prophetic and people not operating in it in a biblical way.

We like to say that the words you receive from Dyed4you and Dyed4you Art are a portion of a conversation, not a conversation in its entirety. We love to hear that we’re confirming something He’s already shared. Ideally, each of us should hear His voice for ourselves and words from others should mostly confirm and expand things He’s already shared, but regrettably many of us have been taught to doubt our ability to hear Him for ourselves. We rely so strongly on our natural senses that we prefer to hear another person tell us what He’s saying to us because we trust our natural senses more than our spiritual ones. That’s usually because we’ve spent more time cultivating our natural senses while neglecting our spiritual ones (again often because we’ve been taught to do so). Continue reading
A while back I shared How-To Receive a Prophetic Word, and on our sites we talk about the letters (prophetic words) that come with our silk and art and the fact that they are supposed to be a portion of a conversation with God, not an entire conversation in and of themselves. These prophetic pieces are intended to facilitate conversation with God, add a dimension to interactions that are hopefully already occurring, or begin conversation if none is. Ultimately, relationship with Him is what we all should be working on and trying to strength and deepen. Continue reading
I’ve been meaning to share this beautiful testimony some time ago but then again there are so many that we have … This one is about a beautiful pair of Regular swing flags called Passion Fire. So often it happens that people receive their silk or quill flags or streamer and at first it doesn’t make sense until Abba is starting to reveal himself in His splendor 🙂 Continue reading
It is not every day I get to have the Dyed4you Community at large minister to me, but that’s just what you all did and I am completely blessed! I have to start by saying I didn’t know what Father was up to when this started, but it is not unusual for Him to get sneaky and give me a birthday gift (some of you may remember the one He birthed in a dream that got finished literally on my birthday). Continue reading
Some of you may remember me sharing a post called Releasing Control, where I talk about how Father has used the dyeing process to take me to deeper levels of releasing control to Him (if you didn’t read it, before it’s a good one). Well, He’s taking me to a new level 🙂
Recently, He told me I’m not to keep track of who has gotten which style silk. Now I don’t mean if you forget the name I can’t look it up, what I mean is it isn’t tracked in a way that lets me easily check whether I have sent you one of a particular style before. In other words, it is possible you might get sent the same style twice. Continue reading
I am very particular not just the type of flags I use, but also by whom they are made. Obviously I have a love for the silks the Father births through me, but it occurred to me I might share why it matters who makes the flags you use.
This is a long one, but a fun one 🙂 This actually happened this time last year. Amanda came for a visit in October with a couple friends. For months she’d been talking about wanting a 5mm semicircle wing/voi pair and about a month before her parents had contacted me about wanting to get her something Dyed4you as a gift. So I filled them in on what she’d been longing for and planted an idea the Father dropped in my heart – have Amanda dye her own gift without knowing it was for her. 🙂 Continue reading
It’s fun to see with the silks how the Lord speaks through them over time. This is a great example of one that increased in personal meaning over time as the Lord revealed the fullness of His message to this individual. And who knows but that He is also prophesying over her about a future time when she will be better versed 😉 Continue reading
Some time ago I had an awake dream where the Lord took a big sidewalk chalk and drew a red line on my left palm and a blue line on my right palm. I exited the dream and asked what it meant. No answer. Continue reading
If you didn’t see the post about the BEAUTIFUL prophetic portrait Alison Louise made me entitled Beauty, you will want to check that out first, because this is my testimony about how the Lord spoke to me through this beautiful piece of prophetic art.
It was so fun to have someone create a piece of personal prophetic art for me like I get to do for all of you! In this video I also share a little on prophetic art in general. I hope it blesses you 🙂 Continue reading
I had an email last night from someone who had been very wounded and confused by experiences in a church that moved in the prophetic. This is not the first time someone has shared a story like this with me, nor will it likely be the last.
Regrettably, experiences like these are often what have chased people away from from all things prophetic – which is a bit like throwing out the baby with the bath water. What really needs to happen is that we need to learn how to properly receive a prophetic word – and often this isn’t something we’re taught, but rather something we learn over time (and through hurts). Hopefully, what I’ve shared below will help, even if they simply serve as a reminder for people who already function in these principles. 🙂
