December 13, 2023
Wow! I can’t believe we are at the end of 2023. What a year! God has done so much this past year, and next year will be even more exciting!
Over this past year, the Lord has repeatedly told us that change is coming. Even now, while I’m writing this, I feel it strongly within me.
Change is coming. The old has gone and the new has come.
The Lord has been speaking to me personally about changing the way I do things to make room for the changes that are coming. It has been building withing me for a couple of months.
At the end of November, I was feeling this expectancy within myself that I need to let go of the way I used to do things – old thought processes because I know the Lord is about to change everything we’ve ever known.
And as I was praying, he said, “Shedding is what is expected in your new year.”
It was unexpected, but I wrote it down and I’ve been thinking about it a lot over the past few weeks.
So, on December 13th, I went to sit with the Lord in hopes of getting more revelation from Him about this word, ‘shedding.’
As I began praying and worshipping, I discovered He was already waiting for me.
I was taken to Heaven, and I found myself sitting with Jesus in what looked like a go-cart.
He had a big grin on His face and said, “Let’s go!”
I knew I was going on another amazing adventure with Him.
We traveled for a short time on a small dirt road. There was both grass and trees on both sides of this small road. And suddenly tracks appeared in front of us. They were similar to train tracks.
Our go-cart went onto the tracks, and it started climbing up. The amazing thing about this was there was nothing under the tracks – they just seemed to hover in the air.
But it was stable. It felt solid as we glided over them – and we continued to go up higher.
I saw a mountain before us, and I saw that the tracks went all the way over the other side of the mountain, and I knew that is where we were headed.
I watched – in awe of what I was seeing and experiencing. There was a comfortable silence between me and Jesus. He knew I was taking it all in. It was wonderful.
I could see the ground below me. We were really high off the ground – but I had no fear. As we approached the top of the mountains, I looked down at the tall trees below. It was beautiful, and I felt so free and happy.
The wind blew, and it almost seemed like the treetops were gently waving at us.
We passed over the mountain and began to descend. I saw a large house that we were heading towards, and when we got close, I realized it was actually a farm that had all kinds of animals roaming around it.
I looked at Jesus, and He had a knowing smile on His face. I couldn’t wait for Him to share His thoughts with me.
The go-cart came to a stop, and we got out and walked over to a giant barn.
There were sheep that were being sheared, and I watched the process and waited. As the sheep were sheared, they would let out a loud, “Baaaaaa.” And then they were directed to a pen with the other sheep that had already been sheared.
We walked over to the pen, and Jesus reached down to pet one of the sheep. I did the same. Even without their wool coat, their skin was soft.
We then walked out of the barn, and there was a big open field. It was quiet other than the sounds you would normally hear on a farm – quiet and peaceful.
I knew the Lord showed me the sheep shearing because of the word He gave me about shedding.
After a few moments of enjoying our surroundings – Jesus said, “In the new year, a shedding will take place on a grand scale.
The focus will shift to completely shedding your old way of doing things. Old habits will die away. There will be no place for those old things to fit into – for those things will not fit into the new wineskins.
I am bringing in the NEW in the new year.
I am focused on the new – not the old – for again, the old has gone and the new has come.
With it will come many challenges, and these challenges will be easily overcome because I have ordained them.
I have called them to be – so do not fret or fear, for these new things will take place.
When the sheep sheds his wool, the wool is used to make new things – new clothing.
My children – when you shed your old ways – when you completely surrender to Me and all the changes that are coming, we will use the things you shed to make new things – for with this shedding comes great wisdom that I will pour out over you.
You must shed the way you used to do things – for the enemy has you so wrapped up in lies and a way of life that is no longer feasible.
This shedding will affect you deeply – some more than others – but I want you to embrace it fully.
I am preparing you for it now. Surrender to it, so I can bless you with the new ideas and blueprints I have created you for.
The enemy would have you believe that releasing your old ways of thinking and doing things will not be good. He wants you to hold onto the old ways with a death grip, but I say, ‘Release it!’
Shed your old ways – for there are blessings with your name on them if you will shed the old ways.
Change is coming – it will not be stopped. The enemy will be defeated. The TRUTH will come out, and when it does – everything changes.
I am preparing you now for it.
For some, the shedding will take time – for others they will completely molt from their old shell all at once by walking away and leaving it behind.
Yes – a shedding is taking place all around the world. You will see more and more people letting go of the old ways of doing things and stepping into the new.
You will have new governments, a new education system, a new economy, and new media. My church will rise up and be what I have called it to be. Families will be drawn together in unity. And arts and entertainment will completely change – for the old has gone and the new has come.
Yes – new things are coming. But first – a shedding must take place – for the old ways of doing things will no longer work.
If you don’t know what you are to do – come ask Me, and I will show you.
Get ready! A shedding is taking place to prepare for the changes that are coming.
I have spoken these words to encourage you – to let you know that I am working – I am moving on your behalf.
The shaking will continue. The lies will continue to come forth. Darkness and evil have been commanded to come into My light – and all will be exposed.
This new year – as these things continue to come out, you – My children, you will hear My call on your life to shed your old ways and your old way of thinking.
I will guide you through it – so do not fear any of it.
This shedding is needed for what is coming!”
Thank You, Lord, for your wisdom and revelation.
Shedding – wow. God’s ways are so much higher than our ways. He knows exactly what is going to happen, and in His love for us, He tells us His plans – and even though change can be extremely scary sometimes, He promises that He will be with us every step of the way.
After that word from the Lord – my thoughts are more intentional. My focus is drawn more to the things He has been speaking to us for the past few years.
As long as my focus stays on Him and His promises – fear, doubt, and anxiety don’t overwhelm me. Because I know He has a plan – and it is good.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’”
Yes – change is coming – and I will continue to focus on God, for He will guide us through the shedding of our old ways, so He may continue to prepare us for the victory that is before us. Amen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
In His love,
