7th February 2018
This testimony starts back in February 2017, when I had some prophetic pictures drawn for me by three School of Ministry students at Bethel.
One picture was of me having a cloak of many colours like Joseph and the artist saw me as a noble knight of integrity. I had been going through a period of self doubt, unsure of my future and had lost my compassionate heart. All the pictures spoke to me and over the next few days many people prophesied over me. These impacted me and combined with the teaching at Bethel and a Sozo (I had been sceptical of having one but would thoroughly recommend it), I experienced a new level/relationship with Jesus and it is awesome.
Fast track to early June, I heard God tell me to be like Teflon - I thought, “what on earth is that about?”
A few days later an incident occurred at work and I challenged a management decision. I thought this had been resolved through discussions, but I went to work one day and was suddenly being accused of being prejudiced and that possible race-hate investigations would be started. For a few days I was in shock and felt betrayed, but I knew I had to continue praising, worshipping through this situation. At times it was a real battle. The “Teflon” word then made sense; that I shouldn’t let the accusations stick to me and get me down. I had to make a decision whether to walk away from the situation or stay: I knew my place was to stay and fight with integrity. I drew from my well of experience and the Lord to overcome this situation. The investigation kept dragging on and due to processes within the organisation, it was not resolved until November, when higher management threw it out of the window, saying there was absolutely no foundation to the accusations. I had been vindicated, Praise the Lord.
The Sunday after the decision had been made, someone had a picture of me with a coat of many colours, confirming what had been prophesied over me back in Feb.
Praising Jesus conquers the mountains!
