Some of you may remember about 15 months ago the Father had me get rid of my canopy. At the time He let me replace it with a beautiful Dyed4you Art River of Life display including the matching silk.
I confess I’ve mourned the loss of my canopy (which I loved) consistently since the moment it was gone. I KNEW it had to go – it had “witnessed” far too much during my days as a heathen and one of my Dyed4you intercessors at the time had been given a vision that gave confirmation to me it was time for me to release it. My husband was very supportive of course.
The River of Life display prophesied the healing He was bringing during this season. It was a timely word for us and we received His flow gratefully.
A couple of weeks ago as my husband was fasting, he turned to me and told me it was time for me to price a new canopy. I was so excited! And immediately the Father showed me it was to be covered with Dyed4you silk (the last one wasn’t simply because it had pre-dated Dyed4you and I’d never dyed any for it afterward), and He showed me exactly which silk to do.
I laughed because the style He picked included orange, which for those who know me know that’s my least favorite color, but it’s also like an inside joke between me and Father – so He often speaks to me through orange (I share more about this in my Beauty testimony).
Not only did I find a canopy I loved, but it was the same style I used to have and was only $65!!! Allen told me to go ahead and get it and I got the nearly 20 yards of silk to create the canopy as well.
The night of sewing and dyeing was not an easy one, much spiritual struggle to complete the project and when I was done they hadn’t turned out how *I* had wanted them to. Frustrated and sad, I went to bed.
The next day Allen and I looked through them and talked about what images we were seeing in them. In the piece that was to be stretched out over our heads there were two very clear sets of horns! It felt almost violent :/
I became even more frustrated until I suddenly realized the word that went with the silk was coming to life before our eyes…
“…To accomplish this task of threshing the enemy, He is equipping and gifting you with an iron horn and brass hooves. The horn is a symbol of strength and power. The Lord God is our horn (2 Sam 22:3, Ps 18:3) and also denotes how His own strength and power rises up within us as well. Horns were instruments of liberation. Horns also could be used as vessels to carry oil (spiritually speaking, the anointing)…”
The silk is about breakthrough and warfare, it became very clear to me why Father had put a very clear reminder of the word within the silk itself. Laying in bed we will continually be reminded we are yoked to Him and fight in HIS power (thus the name of the silk: Lord of All the Earth).
I also love that as we wrap in our comforter (which is the Beloved style) He reminds us of His love for us even as our eyes stay fixed on the challenging mission 🙂
He is such a good God! And I am so grateful for my amazing team of folks who birthed this word as well as the ones who cover this ministry in prayer – I am blessed beyond words to get to work with such amazing ladies… love you all!!!
The beautiful pics of my hubby and I together were taken by my dear friend Amanda of His Heart photography, another special friend Gina took the one of me, and I took the one of my hubby 😉
