In my 50 plus years of living I've had many visions, but I can count on one hand the number I know definitely came from God. Flash back to 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 that I had just seen a prophetic vision of my future. However, at the time I was a single parent two children still in elementary school, I was working full time, and I was active in the church. So for me, learning sign language at that time was out of the question.
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 Pamela Hawkins-Tisdal. She leads and teaches with kindness, passion, patience and most of all the spirit of God. An added joy is that Tiana Warner, whom I grew up with at my former church, 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 for an appointed time; at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it; because it will surely come, It will not delay." Habakkuk 2:3
