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. This one occurred in 1993. I was watching something on television when I felt the presence of God fill the room and the power of God rest heavily on me. Suddenly I began speaking in that heavenly language known as 'other tongues.' Then I saw a vision of myself on the screen, signing poetry before a very large congregation. When I came back to myself, I knew of a certainty that I had just seen a prophetic vision of my future. However, at the time I was a single parent of junior high school students, 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 30 years later. It's 2013 and I'm joining the Sign Language Ministry of my church, Christ Haven Pentecostal Worship Center. The Sign Language team is led by Sister Pamela Hawkins-Tisdal. She leads and teaches with kindness, passion, patience and most of all the spirit of God. An added joy is that Sister Tiana Warner, whom I grew up with at my former church, Greater Refuge, is also a member of the team. She's the same as she was back then: honest, loyal, loving, full of God's word and God's anointing. She's also hilarious!
The moral of this flashback is that 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
