A Moment In Time

Sometimes solitude and quiet are a friend, those moments of pulling away to be refreshed in a world trashed by noise, those times when a whisper can be heard like a roar. Sometimes not to speak a word at all, but just to listen to what heaven might proclaim. Sometimes in these moments, especially in the hours of the night, heaven might not even utter a sound but is overjoyed from the touch. Rest and peace, and refreshment for another day. Those moments when heaven and earth kiss… Sometimes they are available more often than we think. We are not alone in this journey. There are more angels around us than we can imagine… Yes, rest in the journey…

I wrote the above paragraph at 4:44 this morning on my facebook wall and then went back to bed to get some more rest, determined to take in as much of the peace around me as I could. I can’t say whether I saw visions or dreams from this point on and it could have been both.

Almost immediately I was taken to this beautiful place, it reminded me of the back area of a large hacienda. There was a covered area in a reddish stone/brick where people could sit as well as pools. It was a place to rest and enjoy the countryside. There might have even been a beach nearby and even though I didn’t see one, I could sense it’s nearness.

From here, I was placed in front of what must have been a computer monitor as I could see the URL address changing every few minutes with another web page being shown. I could even read some of the web addresses as the pages changed. This seemed to continue for quite a while and then I awakened for a few minutes. I decided to go back to sleep and was immediately in a different place.

At one of the places I saw a red, single engine airplane being flown. There seemed to be a lot of people around in the area where it was flying. It could have even been a stunt plane. All of a sudden, the engine sped up and the plane rose, then it sputtered and this happened a few times and then the engine died. Suddenly, the plane banked hard to the left and started spinning as it came quickly to the ground about a 1/4 of a mile directly in front of me. It dug into the ground and seemed to be following a pickup truck as it did, almost crashing into it, yet underground.

I sat there trying to figure out if I should run for help or just pray as there were many people close by to help. Then I saw a man pull another man from the trench it dug and lift him out almost like Superman would have done, like up about 15 feet in the air before laying the man down on the ground.

The dreamed awakened me totally and I asked the Lord how to pray. It was then I realized that this dream might be a future event, so I started praying for the pilot and the mechanic to find the problem before the plane would be used on this flight or show. Later, I also realized that this might be symbolic, so I prayed for the pilot, if something they are doing in their life is getting ready to crash and bring them down. Lord show them what is wrong and help them to see and to hear. If the crash is inevitable and cannot be avoided, then place someone in their life to help them make it through as the man I saw help the pilot out of the trench.

We might not know who are praying for, or how we might be able to help change someones life for the better. The Lord shows us these things so that we might intercede. So to all of you out there who might have crashed or getting ready to crash at something you’ve tried to do in your life, I pray you find the encouragement to go for it again. Sometimes things happen because of our foolishness, sometimes because of others, and sometimes they just plain happen for no reason at all. I’ve crashed and burned many times, but the Lord and others were always there. This vision/dream was not by accident. I determined to see what the Lord had for me in the night and He gave me this. Not coincidence, He cares.

Lift up your eyes and listen for His voice to encourage and direct your path. There is a destiny planned for your life that is better than you can imagine. Fly higher… Psalm 139

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
