So I posted this to give you an update and to ask for prayer over my next season. Let me just start by saying that this last year of my life has been a whirlwind and I don’t think it will calm down any time soon. The Spirit of God grabbed a hold of my heart in January of 2012 and started preparing me for a very unconventional lifestyle. In March of 2012, while I sat on my bed in my apartment Jesus said to me out of the blue, “Sarah you will drive up the coast, you will document every day and it will be published.”
It was out of left field and very overwhelming! That was all he said about the particular subject but continued to speak to me and confirm he wanted to take me away from LA. Three months after that Jesus asked me to move out of my apartment and implied to me that I would not have another apartment for a long time. I moved out and Jesus said he would take me away from LA by July. June came along and still I didn’t know where I was supposed to go, but contemplated the Lord’s words in my head about the coast. He only mentioned it to me once, but it was so shocking, obviously I never forgot it. In June I asked Jesus “Am I supposed to go up the coast and do what you told me to?” And he replied, “I am not answering that specific question, but I tell you, have faith in me.”
So Jesus didn’t give me a direct answer, and instead I had to jump out in faith to believe that this was His will for my life. Turns out it totally was his will, because every door flung wide open for me to do exactly what he wanted.
I battled and struggled and battled and struggled again to actually do all this and to be obedient. It was overwhelming and I could only take each day at a time. I got a lot of slack for being a psycho kook. However I was thankful my community was so beautifully loving toward me and this endeavor.
I documented every day, without a clue as to why or to whom I was writing. I didn’t know what I was supposed to document, I didn’t know the reason of why I was doing it, I didn’t understand the meaning, the purpose or the possible fruit of it all. One night half way up the coast, I laid in some hostel bed and Jesus told me the purpose of why I was writing. He said that i was writing a book to put on display an intimate relationship with Jesus. He told me what the name of the book would be and what the cover would look like.
So obviously, my life since last July has still been consumed with what Jesus told me to do, and it has only been halfway completed. It’s been 10 months since the trip, and Jesus has sanctified me tenfold to get me to a place where I would be willing to publish all this. I was a scared little baby and didn’t want to be seen by anyone for doing anything spectacular. It took Jesus 12 months (probably more then that, lets be honest) to strip away my pride of not wanting to be seen or known. Praise Him that he is the only one who could have changed me, my heart and my mind!
This last March Jesus confirmed to me that he wanted me to self publish the book on a website called lulu.com. People can order online and the book will be shipped to them.
I NEED YOUR PRAYERS. This is all His idea, His doing and His purpose. I need you to pray that God’s will be done! He wants to get it into people’s hands, so I have hope that his plan will go forth. I need you to pray that this would glorify him. That the Holy Spirit would fill each word on each page and that it would do whatever work Jesus has planned for it to do. It’s BAFFLED me completely that anything I wrote could do a good work. But I know Jesus doesn’t make bad decisions, and I have to trust that he will do whatever he wants and do it well!!
This last year of my life has been full of prayer and constant dependency on The Lord. And as much as I have gotten backhanded by the enemy and I’ve had everything taken away from me, I get encouragement by the fact that I am still homeless. That sounds weird, but listen to this: last May Jesus said to me as I was moving out of my apartment that I would not have another apartment for a good while. And currently, every day I ask him “Lord, can I have a home yet?” He says to me “No, not yet.” I have been homeless for 11 months now. So to me that says that Jesus isn’t done, and that I am still in His will.
The book is called “Being Creation” and here is the description:
“Being Creation is the testimony of a young woman writing to an unknown audience, prompted by a divine commission to road trip through the Pacific West Coast. With a clear direction but no clear purpose, she records her experiences and communication with the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Throughout thirty-two days of travel she encounters loneliness, people, provision, revelation and joy as she proclaims the struggle and wonderment of faith. As she contemplates the risk of following Him, Jesus reveals Himself through vision, voice and word to display His devotion to humanity. While meditating on our reflection of a perfect man, she confidently concludes her responsibility as a human being: to live a life intimately knowing and loving Jesus Christ.
The voice of God shines through to reveal His affirming love and desire for not only her, but for His church and each individual of creation. Profound insights from first person conversation and interaction display a true friendship between The Creator and the one He loves. Follow this journey of emotion and prayer as the Holy Spirit reveals himself from daily musings to vital truth.
Look inside Being Creation for a glimpse of a relationship with the Living God.”
While I knew I had to send this out as a prayer request, my heart still recoiled at the thought! Ugh Jesus I need you! I need every one of your prayers as well!
Help me Lord and glorify yourself and bring us all closer to you!!
I love you all so much. You are my family. Family used to just be a word to me, but because of you, now it means something great. Now I see what Jesus intended when he created us all together.
I love you.
