My guest post is from John Garfield today. I met him years ago. and I was prophecied over that I would have to move (it’s in my book Grace to the Rescue) that there would be nothing I could do about it. And that is exactly what happened. I was forced to move and took my children to Minnesota, where I was eventually delivered from a very bad situation. Another “word” God gave me through this man was that I would be doing something creative that would bless my children somehow.
I was very poor, living in housing, and I started a floral business, and also learned to do floral design through a company that would send me kits and videos. My children saw me overcoming and pursuing my dream, even though I had every reason to just give up at that point in time. When I finally got all the flowers done to sell, I was in the mall selling flowers with my then 12 year old son, and learned my daughter had ran away from home. I left him in charge as I pursued her and got her out of the carnival trailer she was hiding in, ready to run off with them. I remember how I used that authority I learned about in church. “Produce my daughter” I said to the carnival workers that were hiding her,” Or I will call the cops!”
Indeed, they did produce her. John has always talked about desires of your heart and God wanting to use your dreams, gifts and talents for his glory (among other things) but today’s message from him is just really special, so I am sharing it with you. I’ve been super busy, and hope to get back to posting here more often.
