In my 50 plus years of living, I've had many visions, but I can count on one hand the number I know of a surety came from God. It happened in 1993. I was watching something on television when I felt the presence of God in the room and the power of God resting heavily on me. Then suddenly I saw myself on the screen, signing poetry before a very large congregation. At the time I was a single parent of pre-teens, working full time, and super active in the church on both local and diocese levels. Learning sign language then was out of the question, so life went on.
Flash forward thirty years later and it's 2013 and I'm joining the Sign Language Ministry of Christ Haven under the leadership of Sister Pamela Hawkins Tisdal and alongside Sister Tiana Warner and others. Pam leads and teaches with kindness, passion, patience and most of all the spirit of God - and Tiana is the same as she was when we grew up together at Refuge: honest, loyal, loving, full of God's word and God's anointing. She's also hilarious!
The moral of this flashback is: No matter how many years have passed, if GOD gave you a vision that hasn't happened yet, don't worry because "..the vision is yet for an appointed time....though it tarries, wait for it, for it shall surely come to pass..." Habakkuk 2:3
