Many years ago, before I even had a relationship with God, my aunt said to me that I would one day be a trailblazer and that I would do great things for God. She had no grounds for that word of prophecy, based on what she could see with her physical eyes. In the natural, I was on a slippery slope of destructive behavior. Tangled up in addiction, drugs, and promiscuity, there was no indicator (in the natural) that I would ever be able to get free and fulfill that thing she had spoken over me.
As a visionary person, it's easy to feel isolated. You can be among others of similar or same gifting but differ in how it manifests in and through you. Others may not see what you see or understand what you envision. You'll discover who is who in your walk with some discussion. Though some may understand, they may not walk with you. Your passions may be different then theirs. They also may not be stirred and connect with your passions. That's a good indication that though they walk with you, they may not be able to walk closely with your passion. Learn what you can from them but also find others who understand you and are able to help you develop as a visionary.
I woke up from a dream hearing many voices crying out these words, "God, don't let me down." They repeated this desperate cry over and over. I asked the Lord why so many felt as though He might let them down? His answer came in a scripture. "In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one." Ephesians 6:16
In these days of division and tension, Daniel is a perfect role model of leadership and excellence as a watchman. When Daniel was exiled and found himself in the court of the king of Babylon, he dedicated himself to bringing the rule of God into that pagan place. He did it through stellar character and incessant prayer. He was a true intercessor, a watchman on the walls. Daniel did not attend Hebrew University but rather was trained in the School of the Chaldeans. He invested himself entirely in both the success of the king under whom he had been forced to serve and the restoration of his people in Jerusalem, disregarding potential misunderstandings and serious repercussions.
I had a dream last night of going to a house being built inside of a house. Really it seemed more like a pavilion at the time, but many things were gathered and you could tell a lot of thought had gone into it its construction. I was impressed by some of the things I saw that they had gathered. But the house was inside of the house and the world was outside. I got the impression that the people that would be drawn there would be drawn there from the other house that was over it. I just knew that there was sunshine outside, but that it was also a dangerous place. People needed shelter from the storms and attacks.
I was contemplating the thought of what it must be like to dream with God so I figured, why think about it? I'll just ask Him. "Lord," I said, "What is dreaming with you like?" He replied, "Amy, dreaming with Me is a practice of becoming who you are. All My children are dreamers. Many just don't know it or have not allowed themselves to dream anymore.  They were told it was foolish to dream; that it wasn't reality. They were told it wasn't possible, it wasn't practical and that they should look for something possible and practical to occupy in life." God continued, "How can My children believe in me when it is for something they can merely accomplish on their own? "
About a month ago, I dreamed I was walking along the sidewalk of a city street. Along the walk I came upon a little girl crouched down in the middle of the sidewalk. I stopped, bent down and talked to her for a moment. I then asked her what her name was. Her name was, "Heaven."  At that moment, I picked her up and carried her everywhere I went. I went into restaurants and stores and theaters and so forth, and as I did I carried Heaven with me into all those places. As the Body of Christ, we are called to be carriers of Heaven.
"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19) I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying that in this season I am giving you a double new beginning!  He is giving you a new beginning in your relationships. He is giving you a new beginning in your marriage. He is giving you a new beginning in your ministry.
One day the Lord gave me this word after taking notice of several signs throughout the day.  One sign said: "Warning, Contents Under Pressure."  As I looked closer it also said "Highly Flammable."  Later on in the day I had seen several other signs which said "Shock Hazard" and another said "High Voltage." These signs caught my attention as the Holy Spirit gave me this word.  There are so many people who are living under extreme pressure due to challenging situations that they are facing.  For some of you the pressures in your lives are overwhelming. Jesus has a good plan for you no matter how things appear in the natural.
I was meeting with someone last week who noticed my ring and asked how long I had been married. "Marriage is grand," he said, "and divorce is five hundred grand." You could feel the tragedy even through the joke. I laughed somewhat nervously and paused to let him elaborate. Just behind the humor was an obvious sadness. A few days later another person told me about his childhood and the pain he felt from being made fun of for being overweight.
