“I Thirst”

One day the Lord put it on my heart to send a scarf to a woman I’d never met or even spoken to on the phone. We were connected through a mutual friend. It took me a couple weeks before I had a chance to dye the scarf and a few more days before I wrote the letter and sent it off. The letter the Lord gave me was this:

The Lord told me you needed a scarf. I was seeking His face on what that should be. I was making seven large veils for a dancer – the Lord had instructed her to get seven done on seven verses that occur during the crucifixion. As I made the 5th veil called “I thirst” (from John 19:28), the Lord told me to make another one for you. So I did.

So the name of your scarf is “I thirst”. The brown represents humility and a contrite heart, the turquoise represent river of life, and the white represents victory. What God began to show me as I made this scarf is that as the brown (man in our humility with a contrite heart) is flooded by turquoise (the river of life – God’s living flow), it makes green which represents life and healing, that is the essence of our victory. Isn’t that awesome? So as we are humble and pressing into Him, He brings life and victory. Wow. What a promise.

So thirst!! Thirst for more of Him and drink to your hearts content… His healing flow will wash and is washing over you.

Your scarf was prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s River of Life, which is used to usher life in wherever it’s needed. The River of Life speaks of healing and purification. It can bring life to the land, people, relationships, situations, places… anything. It contains salt for purging, hyssop for purification, pomegranate for health and to represent the Blood, cyprus to cleanse anger, and cedar to cleanse bitterness.

I pray this blesses you…

A few weeks later, I received this lovely thank you note:

I hope you all are doing well, and I pray constantly that God is blessing you – as you are such a blessing to many. I would like to thank you again for your precious and perfect gift.

Before I received it, I was on the verge of giving up on everything, throwing my hands up and walking away from it all – my marriage especially for years it’s been in trouble, and we’ve even separated a few times. We both know that this is it… All or nothing.

I’ve been praying so hard (and still am) for God to rekindle the flame that burned inside of him for a short time when he came to Christ. I even gave my marriage back to God last year (including sowing my engagement ring) because I had done all I knew to do. It just went downhill from there.

The last thing I asked God (the week I got your scarf) was if I should stay and continue the fight, or walk away. I asked him to give me a clear sign straight from Him if I should stay. I also asked God to show me his love… I wanted to feel his love.

Then a few days later I received your scarf and turned into a blubbery mess 🙂 Your letter was dated the exact day I was praying for all of that. Then, on a day I needed God the most, he showed up in my mailbox!

You anointed my scarf with River of Life, which speaks of healing and purification. It also stated it contained cyprus to cleanse anger and cedar to cleanse bitterness. Those are 2 of the biggest issues in our marriage.

The name of my scarf is “I thirst”, with colors of brown (humility and a contrite heart), turquoise (river of life) and white (victory). Now that’s what I call a clear sign!

During the day I keep it in the office or on me and at night it lays on my pillowcase. Many times at night I just put on worship music and either lay on my pillow or drape it over me and worship Him.

Thank you so much for allowing God to use you. You are such a blessing!

God’s timing never ceases to amaze me!

  1. He’s so awesome! All of these bless me so. This one again, shows how deeply He loves us and He reaches out to us to give us what we need when we need it. His encouragement is priceless.

  2. God’s timing is so, so perfect! I think one of the hardest things to push through is marriage issues & change. I love that God gave her something so special to constantly speak to her & remind her of His promises especially victory!! I remember now reading this before and when I got my first scarf I sleep with it on my pillow every night. 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing this one. What a beautiful story. God is good! Times can be hard, i to am facing some hard time in my work place. I ask God “Why did you move me here”. I didn’t ask to be moved. Only God knows why, he has it all planned out for me. We need to just place all our trust in him. I love how she lays with it, I Love to do that too. We can feel his presence. Truely Meghan, you and your help are such a blessing to so many people. God Bless you 🙂

  4. Wow! I teared up reading this. I love the combined colors and meaning in “I Thirst.” It so speaks to me and my similar journey.

    I became a spirit-filled Christian in 1991, though I had been seeking God in “church” for years. In 1995 I “saw dancers” and began my journey in worship dance. In 1999 I joined a dance team called “Zion’s Bride” and began to step out in prophetic/interpretive dance and flags.

    Recently I moved to Kansas City, Missouri to be a part of IHOP (International House of Prayer http://www.ihop.org) that I had been following and participating in since I began dance in 1999. It is an equipping community and university, training people in 24/7 Davidic prayer and worship.

    This morning, 1/18/12, at 5:30 a.m. I saw a dancer using silk fabric in the dance area. I asked a friend where she got them and she told me about “Dyed4you.” I have spent the last 2 hours browsing your site. “I Thirst” really ministered to me today, but now I’m asking God what colors I am to have, because my circumstances are quite unique and have change slightly as I war and contend for my marriage and the ministry call on our life. (More on our website.)

    Thank you for your obedience in 2003 to follow the prompting of Holy Spirit and begin your ministry of dance and flagging. I look forward to following your blog and encouraging one another. Praying for the Lord to direct and release the finances for one of your “Swing Flags.” At the IHOP 24/7 Prayer Room we can dance and use fabric, but no doweled flags are allowed because too many people have gotten hit before.

    Blessings to you! I will be praying for your ministry, and for your marriage to be sweet in the fine wine of time! <3

  5. @Kathleen – thank you for taking the time to comment 🙂 I love IHOP-KC! It holds a special place in my heart as the Father used a word I received there in 2008 to launch me into a 1.5 yr season of time at my then home church’s prayer room, which culminated with Him launching Dyed4you into a full time ministry. 🙂

    I find it interesting you left this comment the same day I posted a video of swing flags created to war for marriage (http://dyed4you.com/blog/2012/01/whole-swing-flag-pair/). May not be the one Father want for you, but interesting nonetheless. 

    If I’m not mistaken, the swing flags you saw were called Dwelling in His Beauty. They were gifted to the young lady by my lead intercessor during OneThing 🙂 Take a peek and see if these look familiar – http://dyed4you.com/blog/2011/11/more-from-mt-shasta/

    Bless you! I pray you’ll stay in touch 🙂

  6. […] had a comment come through today on a scarf story from 2007 and in the comment she mentioned having seen Dyed4you swing flags being used in the Prayer Room at […]

  7. So touching. I love how the Lord speaks exactly what we need right when we need it. I’m going on 4 years of really discouraging circumstances, it’s been a very up and down battle. God has been faithful through it all. But Im still feeling stuck and confused. Really needing breakthrough. This testimony gives me hope for my own situation. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Agreeing with you for breakthrough! Grateful we were able to encourage you today. Bless you 🙂

  8. This is so beautiful !! I love seeing Gods heart poured out in His people !! So encouraging how much He loves us all !!!

  9. That was beautiful! God is always on time.
