Flags take on many shapes and forms, some are huge and some are small, but ultimately the action of lifting a flag (or standard / banner) has meaning. Below we’ve shared just a few of the things communicated through this type of expressive worship. Continue reading Why We Flag
This post is a quote of an article by Arletia Mayfield (she has a book available on her site), which she posted on Owlcation. When I initially posted this blog, I was not familiar with this sister in Christ personally (nor this website), but the article had so much in it that pertains to the Dyed4you Community I wanted to share it because I believed you’ll be blessed by it (The original article (which she appears to update regularly) is available here). Continue reading The Symbolic Use of Flags and Banners in Praise and Worship
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. Continue reading Operating in Love (The Prophetic Voice)
Last fall we Announced Dyed4you Readymade. It’s been fun to see how things have developed as time has progressed and the store has come into its own. The following is a video that we created for the Etsy store as an overview about how it works and ties in with the vision of Dyed4you. Just wanted to share it here as well since it really captures the heart. 🙂 Continue reading About Dyed4you Readymade
When the tabernacle was built the Lord says of the men he selected to lead the design/creation that He had “filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs” (Ex 31:3-4).
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 How-to Receive Dyed4you Art/Silk
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 What is a Prophetic Word?
I want to touch briefly on the topic of worship and praise. Because this is the heart behind D4Y and you are all a part of D4Y I feel like it is VITAL that we are mindful of where we are giving our praise. This is a repost from my personal blog. I hope it blesses you. If you want to see more from the personal blog, I post on Dyed4you Ministries FB page when I post new ones – so feel free to like the page and set it to show in your news feed 🙂 Continue reading Who Will You Worship
It’s been a busy week getting caught up on orders, but also because I’ve had some extra stuff going on too! This evening is Passover followed by the feast of Unleavened Bread, which has meant it’s been time to get the leaven out of our house 🙂 Continue reading Leaven, Cleansing, & Sabbaths
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 video clip from the live streaming at my church, Passion for Truth. You’ll see a number of D4Y silks in this, most notably on Cheryl (my pastor’s wife) one of our worship leaders. In this clip (about 2:22 in), she shares a good word on receiving – I thought you’d be blessed by – I know I was! Continue reading Word on Receiving
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 Beauty (Prophetic Portrait) Testimony
This is sort of a fun story for me because God stretched me in the middle of it too! Many of you know that Dyed4you isn’t really just about getting a beautiful piece of silk, it’s about getting a word from the Lord that happens to have a tangible silk reminder 🙂
Increasingly I sense the Lord shifting me away from simply “executing” creating scarves (in other words, when people simply pick the scarf they want like you would in a department store) and focus on delivering His word in season to those who order. The interesting part of this is helping first time buyers understand how it all works! And there in begins our story. Continue reading Letting the Lord Speak
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. 🙂
An Ordinary Day
Today while getting ready for the day, I was reflecting upon something the LORD has asked me to do. I initially responded to Him with, “Yes, LORD.” There have been no further instructions. I am waiting for the next command. However, at various times this morning I had become absorbed in wondering about the details of the assignment. I thought to myself, “But I don’t know exactly how to do that.” Continue reading BUT I: Not one of God’s Names
I got an email today from someone who was a bit confused because she’d been to a number of color sites (including Dyed4you’s color chart) and found differences in meanings. It’s understandable how that could seem confusing! And since searches for “biblical colors meaning” and “prophetic color meanings” are some of the top searches that bring people to Dyed4you, I thought it was a good topic to address 🙂 Continue reading Color Meanings
This is a post I shared on my personal blog not long ago, but since it’s about worship – which is so much the heart of Dyed4you – I thought I’d share it here as well. It all begins with a question: if worship is our gift to God is it more important that it be how we want? Or how He wants? Continue reading Worshiping God (Exodus 32)
Thank you, Meghan for inviting me to share what the LORD has placed on my heart with you and the Dyed4You community. This is NOT the posting I thought I would launch with, but trust the LORD’s timing. This seems like a very intense introduction and I am humbled to share this post, as it feels like it just “broke through” my agenda and ordered plan to share. May these posts serve to encourage and build one another up in love (1 Thes 5:11). Continue reading Getting the Hell out of my House
Sometimes people wonder “why” I’ve chosen various colors or oils for their scarf, or why one scarf letter is less than half a page and another is three pages (though they’re rarely that long!). The only way I can answer that is by talking about the nature of God and how He wants to use this ministry. Continue reading Gelah Raz (Revealer of Mysteries)
