The Enduring Journey: Joy Coming

(Karen speaking)
I love to reflect back on these early days when this ministry first began in the physical realm. It had already begun in the spirit about 6 months before our actual first trip. There was so much preparation that had to happen. As we listened to the Lord and followed His directions to prepare, we were so blessed to see daily His provision and His plans come to fruition. As you read and sense the excitement we felt preparing our hearts and minds for this new work, we pray that you will also experience the excitement of following the Lord totally and completely in the paths that He wants you to trod in your daily life. We are all His children and as such He desires His best for us! He wants us to be usable vessels in His hands for the Kingdom of God.

(Father speaking)
There is more great joy awaiting you, My children. I have much for you to do. The time is almost here when you will leave. The schedule is set and the time is soon when you leave to do all that I have set out for you to do. You are ready. Just continue in My Word and stay ready to leave. Get all your clothing and supplies together. When the motor home arrives, it will be a quick preparation time. You will call all on your list to come and see the provision I have sent. You will tell all who come how I have given this to you because of your trust and belief in Me. It will not be pride or arrogance but truth and confidence. Some may see it as the other but it will only be, look what I have done. Some will still not believe but will be skeptical and others will fall on their face before Me in repentance and love. Why is it that My children have to see Me work in order to know that I am working? It is the condition of man to doubt and fear what is of Me. I love My children and want them to come to Me willingly and obediently but they resist and suffer the loss of fellowship. You have believed and have chosen to walk with Me. Just do not waver or be fearful. I will provide all I have promised and you have done well to follow all My words. You have been so sensitive to My Spirit. Just continue to do so as the time draws close for all to be accomplished. Even you will be so awed by how the provision comes that your faith will be strengthened and your walk will be straighter. Go and tell My people that the time is now for turning to Me completely and totally. Much will be happening in our world that demands that My people will stand strong. It is the time to make that commitment to Me that will place you at the point of danger just to stand for Me. I am calling all My people to be accountable to Me and to each other. Your word must be your life. What you say must be what you believe. Playing time is over. Some will not change but there are many others who will hear what you say and fall on their face in confession and repentance. They will become the warriors I need at this time. Many will hear and know that I am God and there is no other. You just go and tell all whom I bring to you. Many will be brought to you and I will send you to many. Just remain so close to Me that you hear and obey in a moment. I love you both and I am so glad you have chosen to believe what I have said and have done it. When you falter reach out for Me. I am right here always and will help you. Do not listen to the enemy no matter what he says. Always check to be sure who is talking to you. You know My voice now as never before so just listen and respond as I speak. There is great joy coming even more than you are experiencing now. The time on the road will be the most wonderful you have ever spent. I know you both love each other so much and that will grow as you serve Me and others. The testimony of your life together is a testimony of Me. Keep being open and sharing what I am doing in your life and every day there will be someone to tell. You have done well to speak boldly all that I have given. It is almost time to go so don’t let down. You did well to fast today, as I wanted this time with you totally uninhibited and close. Listen, I will give even more direction to you about these next few days. Share it all with each other. It is all-important to each day’s walk.
Psalm 16:11
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
