Me and Lydia….(I look awful, but oh well…)
Being able to participate in the Cervantino was truly one of the most memorable times in my life! You could really see and feel the Lord’s presence everywhere, touching hearts and changing lives.
During the Cervantino I was able to participate and be one of the “prophets” in the Carpa Del Destino and during that time we would hear from the Lord about any questions that the people would have. While we were there, a small group of teens and young adults approached our tent. We later found out that they were part of a band and had been witnessed to by some of our partners who later told them about our tent.
There was this one girl in particular who didn’t really want to go in and had been avoiding getting in for a while. After some prodding by two other girls from the band who I had received prophesies for, telling her how cool it had been, she finally agreed to give it a go.
Once inside I asked her if she had a question or something that was in her heart that she would like God to answer.
“Well you see, the thing is that I don’t really believe in God. Well, I guess I do…sort of, but I seriously doubt if he even loves me.”
Okaaaay so that hit hard! I asked her if she had anything in particular that she wanted to ask God about. She hesitated a little before answering, “Uhh, yeah, you see, I have been in so many relationships and they have all ended the same way, going nowhere. I guess I just want God to prove that He is there and that he loves me.”
I nodded, took her hands and prayed that the Lord would give her a message that would be just what she needed.
What followed was amazing. The Lord told Lidia that he knew exactly was she felt. That he had created that empty spot in her heart that only he could fill. He also told her that he wanted to be her very first love and have that special first place in her life and that he had let those broken relationships happen in her life so strengthen her and, when the time came, to appreciate even more that special person that he would place for her to spend her life with. He also said that he didn’t want for her to imagine him as afar away, stern, judgmental, God who only liked to cause suffering and pain in people’s life, but that he wanted her to imagine him down at her level, as a friend, lover and someone who truly loves her and who she can lean on when the going got tough.
When I was about halfway done Lydia’s hands suddenly started shaking, but I didn’t open my eyes to see what it was because I didn’t want to lose my concentration, but when the message finished I opened my eyes and found her sobbing. I quickly hugged her while she kept repeating, “Thank you! Thank you!” in my ear. I reinforced that Jesus really did care and that He loved her so much that he would have gone through all that suffering even if she would have been the only person in the world who would accept Him. After hearing the message from the Lord she immediately softened and opened up her heart to me.
She explained that when she was one year old and her brother was just a baby, their father had left them and their mom to fend for themselves. She said how through all the hard times they went through, their mom was always there for them, and so she felt that how she had been acting recently was not fair for her mom. Also how in her job people never paid her any attention even if she was the one that was working the most, and how even her love life had failed.
I asked Lydia if she wanted me to receive another message from the Lord for this situation to which she immediately said yes. She closed her eyes and bowed her head with me while I prayed for her mom, and asked if the Lord had anything to say.
The Lord told her in prophecy that he wanted her to tell her mom about this experience, so that she would know of the happiness only he could bring, also to pray for her constantly as that was not the least she could do but the most. He also mentioned other topics of her life that she needed to change, and to be a testimony of his love for others.
After this message she started crying again while nodding her head as she said “Thank you” all over again. When she left the tent you could really see that new light in her eyes that wordlessly says,
“My life has just been changed for the better.”
And now, lets end this post with a super cool pic of a really awesome person and me :
Jeremy Spencer!!! I love you!!! You are SO AWESOME!!!
