Spiritual Nurturer

“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” – John 17:17

I am excited to announce that I was accepted into the Spiritual Nurturer program at a Franciscan spiritual center.  It was a blessing to receive this invitation.  I am very much looking forward to starting this Fall.    There will be a total of eight residencies over the next two years.  In those two years I will be in deep study and prayer.  However, I still plan to read and write posts here on WordPress.

I believe this spiritual program will give me the network and confidence to continue to listen to people’s spiritual journeys and their ability to tell their truth.  I have always enjoyed listening to how God moves through peoples lives and I believe that it is important for people to be aware of this movement.  Something I intend to achieve in becoming a Spiritual Nurturer is to offer a safe space for people to develop this awareness.

My hopes over the next two years are to be able to continue to listen to people’s experiences with enthusiasm, as well as post updates on this blog.

I will keep this post short. 🙂

In closing, I ask that you join me in prayer for the 2015-17 Spiritual Nurturer class, teachers and administration staff.

With Love,

Brooke

Vision of Jesus

jesus on a cloud

“He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters, Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind,” – Psalm 104:3

I had a vision two days ago. I’m still savoring it as I rarely have visions like this. I was sitting cross-legged on a bed in a beautiful light purple bedroom (the color purple had some type of significance). I looked like myself but slightly different. It felt like I was in a different state of consciousness. In this bedroom, I was waiting for someone to come visit.


All of a sudden Jesus appeared.


He was standing about two feet above the ground on what seemed like an “invisible” platform. There was a bright light and mist behind and under him. I went over to him and immediately kneeled and put my hands on his feet. He was wearing sandals and a white robe-like garment. I could feel my hands clasp around his feet. I felt this rush of love like I was being healed. I was at his feet but at moments it was as though I was looking at this scene from out of my body.

He had to leave after what felt like only minutes. I didn’t have any apprehension when he needed to go. I felt like whatever he was there for was accomplished. I opened my eyes and he spoke to me. He said encouraging words that I hold close to my heart. The words were related to an event that took place a few nights prior to that vision.

It was an AMAZING and HEALING experience. I had to share it with all of you.

Thank you for reading.

With Love and Blessings,

July Prayer for Peace

past the trees

“May Your lovingkindnesses also come to me, O LORD, Your salvation according to Your word;” – Psalm 119:41

Good day to you, fellow seekers of truth,

I hope this post finds you well!

I was lead to share the following prayer for the July Prayer for Peace. As I was reading through it the song ‘Kumbaya, My Lord’ was singing in my head.  I know there is no coincidence that this song was running through my head as I read the July Prayer for Peace, as ‘kumbaya’ in Gullah means ‘come by here’ (I didn’t know that before today).  Below is the prayer that I was given:

“Come Lord,

Work on us,

Set us on fire and clasp us close,

Be fragrant to us,

draw us to Your Love,

Let us run to You.” – St. Augustine of Hippo

This prayer means so very much to me.  This is my interpretation:  I’m inviting the Lord into my life to work on me.  I want Him to give me passion for Him and protection.  I want to be able to notice His sweet loving Presence all day, every day.  If there ever are moments that I find tribulation or celebration then I will not even have to think to come to Him first.

I have discovered through my experiences that I can TRUST in God and all He does for me.  If there ever is a moment that I cannot find peace by myself then I call on the Lord to help me see “past the trees”.

What does this prayer mean to you?  

With Love,

Brooke
