I am experiencing a revolutionary work of God in my life these days. I feel a direct call to take Jesus more seriously than I ever have before.

I hope that you have read both part 1 and part 2 and have had some time to bring the dream I have shared to the Holy Spirit.

In this Prophetic Dream series, I am attempting to process the dreams I believe are communication that I am given from Jesus.

This past Sunday was bath time for my sweet pup, Crowder. Sometimes I can’t believe how dirty this dog, who spends most of his time in the house, can get.
