” I KNOW YOUR DEEDS…”
June 18th, 2011
“I KNOW YOUR DEEDS. I HAVE OPENED A DOOR FOR YOU NO MAN CAN SHUT. I KNOW YOU HAVE LITTLE STRENGTH, YET, YOU HAVE KEPT MY WORD AND NOT DENIED MY NAME.”
…when we received this verse from Stefan Hugo, I BURST INTO TEARS.
I remember when Julie Tiehen came home, she was living with us at the time, and I would process a lot of things with her, (thanks friend!) and showed her the word we received from Stefan, she said…
“…see Kat, GOD KNOWS.”
To say the least, it has been a long journey.
As you know, the Lord gave us the vision of “JesusFreaks” in 2004, in 2005 we googled “how to create a reality series,” in 2006 we were released by God through YWAM Denver, in 2007 we broke down and bought a computer, in 2008 we filmed and edited “JesusFreaks,” in 2009 we got into the our first film festival, The Heartland Film Festival, in 2010…“JesusFreaks” would be recognized by another 8 festivals, both secular and faith based festivals, and now we are in 2011, with 2 more festivals under our belt, and I stand in awe at the opportunity at hand.
GOD’S WORD DOES NOT RETURN VOID.
And not to mention everything in between…DTS, Hurricane Katrina, phase 2, paying job, having 2 babies, educating Charles (he received his Master’s in Conflict Resolution from The University of Denver) yall know…LIFE.
What I have realized is…A WOMAN’S WORK IS NEVER DONE.
7 years later…
I think I need to say that again…7 YEARS.
I couldn’t help look up the spiritual significance of the number “7″ and this is what I found…
The Number Seven:
“We come now to the great number of spiritual perfection. A number which, therefore, occupies so large a place in the works, and especially in the Word of God, as being inspired by the Holy Spirit.”
“…spiritual perfection, …especially in the Word of God as being inspired by the Holy Spirit.”
Now this definition RESONATED within me.
I now know, that once God releases you into the vision He has given you, there really is not an “end” to that vision. In my own naivety, I had no idea we would still be “involved” in this same vision 7 years later.
And when I say “involved” I mean living, breathing, pushing, crying, praying, screaming, sweating, begging, pleading…you get the idea.
So…here we are and I am grateful you are here with us.
At MANY times we have felt alone on this journey even though I know we have not been. God has been faithful every step of the way. Even in the desert seasons, He has given us “canteens” along the way.
And in the form of prayer warriors, He has been GENEROUS.
So I am reaching out to you, prayer warriors, to those I know who spend time with the Lord, to keep the MILLENNIAL GENERATION in your prayers.
My prayer is: THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION SHALL NOW KNOW THEIR FATHER.
“If you want to launch big ships, you have to go in the deep end.”
Well, we are in the deep end.
While you are spending time with our KING this week, please speak our names out in prayer as well.
I hope this note finds each of you resting in His love and favor.
