How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day today?
Have you found out your calling from the Lord? I think I have found out mine, and I would like to share how amazingly He unfolded it, and how He communicated it to me.
Previously in my blog, “Hearing the Voice of God”, I shared that Sister Margaret Seaward, the teacher of the class assigned a group exercise during the class. In my group, a young lady said to me, “I saw an airplane stuck on the runway. But it is meant to fly, not meant to be grounded.” When I shared this with the class, Sister Margaret said to me, “You should kick off!” At that time, I thought to myself, “Does it mean I should activate the gift of healing?” Then, I thought the Lord would give me the gift of healing. Like I shared in the previous blog, I also received the prophetic words with the painting of myself, and the theme of the painting was “Healing Aroma”. Yet I did wonder how I would “kick off” and whether it’s even something I could kick off.
Outside the class, there were some occasions when I felt I should pray for the sick, or those who were in need to be physically healed. I mustered up the courage to approach them, and asked them whether I could pray for them. I did that, thinking I was obeying the Lord. But nothing happened, they didn’t get healed. And I still wondered whether He would give me the gift of healing.
In about six months after I took the class, “Hearing the Voice of God”, I had a chance to meet a Korean prophet who was in town in Singapore. He gave me a personal prophecy, and shared what he saw in the visions. I recorded it, and listened to it. Indeed, I felt that the prophecy is not something new, but it’s confirmation on what I already knew or felt. His words gave me confirmation on many parts in my life. While listening to his prophecy, I got goose bumps on my skin. He said, “Sister, I see an airplane on the runway, but it has been stuck and grounded, while it is meant to fly. You would have felt stuck, as you were supposed to fly, but you’ve been grounded. But God will give you the faith to take flight as your calling.” He said exactly the same thing as what the young lady in my group exercise saw for me. I was astounded, but I wasn’t still sure what it meant to take flight. Would it be the gift of healing or would it be farming or what else?
Then, one early morning in April 2019, I was reading Psalms 34, and when I read the verse “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good,” I thought of writing my testimonies. I was encouraged by some people that I should write my testimonies whenever I shared them. Deep in my heart, I had a desire to write. When I was a high school student, I once dreamed of making books for students. When I worked for my first employer, one of my bosses said to me that his mind tells him that I’m not meant for the corporate world, but for something more creative. I appreciated his comments immensely, as I already knew I was not meant for the corporate world. I did my best in my workplace and I think I earned a good reputation from my bosses and colleagues. Yet, I’ve never felt that it was for me. In my twenties and thirties, I dreamed of writing sitcoms or novels. Actually, I enjoyed writing to my university friend in New York, after she moved to the United States. She and her husband enjoyed reading my daily writings. At that time, I enjoyed reading Pastor Max Lucado’s books. I’m not sure whether it was in his book, “Cure for The Common Life: Living in Your Sweet Spot” that he shared his experience that no publisher was interested in his writing before his debut. Eventually, his books were published, and I became one of the beneficiaries of the blessings from him.
With all these impetus coming my way, yet I had no courage to leave the corporate world to become a writer. However, I shared my dream with a few friends. As I continued to search myself, one day, I felt deep down in me, a desire to be a writer. It was more of a motive to be famous for my writings in the world. I prayed to the Lord that I would not pursue the dream if my heart’s motive is to promote myself. Since then, I completely dropped that subject.
So, back to the morning in April 2019, the thought of writing came into my mind again as I was reading the Scripture. I went to a nearby church and sat alone to pray. I asked the Lord whether it’s in His will for me to write. I felt Him saying that no matter what I would do, He would use me for His glory. I came back home, thinking I would start to write. While at home, I was surprised to see Doug Addison re-posting a video clip, “Anyone Can Write a Book” in his social media that he had first posted back in November 2017. I felt it was God’s confirmation on my writing. More surprisingly, later in that April, I read the blog of Lana Vawser, an Australian prophetess, “It is right to write”. I also read and listened to other prophecies of hers to encourage writers to write. One of her expressions that stuck with me was, “What you write is about to take flight.” I couldn’t be more assured about writing, and I also could put together the visions of the airplane with Lana’s expression, “What you write is about to take flight.”
So, in April 2019, I began to write. I sent emails with my writings to a friend of mine. Then a year later, I mustered up the courage to write and post my blogs to the public. In the midst of writing, I was amazed to find out my calling and put together the puzzles in my mind. Recently, I read Doug Addison’s blogs on writings that he had posted in the past. This time, I found out four blogs when I searched “writing” on his website. Interestingly, in two blogs out of the four, there were the pictures of paper airplanes. Suddenly I could understand why the Korean prophet and the Singaporean young lady saw the visions of an airplane for me. When I saw the paper airplanes in Doug’s blogs, I was able to realize that people used to write on the paper, before they folded it into airplane and flied it away! It was a moment of revelation, a few years after I pondered and wondered what the airplane meant in their visions, and what it meant that I’m supposed to fly.
In addition, I got to realize that my writings would carry His healing aroma. One day, when I searched for a Scripture that I would write in one of my blogs, I read Revelation 22:1-3, “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” In those verses, the leaves of the tree for the healing of the nations were highlighted, and I was reminded of the golden leaf that Irene, a Singaporean artist painted for me, together with the prophetic word “Healing Aroma”. Amazingly, later at night, I read Lana Vawser’s blog she posted back in 2018 for writers, and she just wrote this verse from Revelation 22:3, saying she kept seeing a vision of huge leaves covering the manuscripts, songs, poems, teachings, etc. of the writers.
It reminded me of the huge golden leaf that Irene, the prophetic artist painted for me. After the pieces of the puzzle were put together and made sense to me, I was blown away.
I think I would write more in regards to the journey to find out our callings. Yes, I will write them on the paper, fold it, and fly it away to you soon. And I pray in Jesus’ name that His healing aroma pour out upon you when you receive, unfold and read it.
Have a bliss!
You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:3)
