Julie Price: A Vision -Words and Weeds ~ Flowers and Seeds ~ and the Garden Called Your Heart!
In a vision I saw a large field. It was full of various flowers and weeds. Some parts of this field were lush and beautiful with flowers galore. As I got closer to the flowers some of them were literally words that had sprung up on the stem in the shape and color of various flowers. The flowers were positive words like health, healing, wholeness, peace, joy, love, and on and on! As I continued walking through this field I noticed that there were a lot of weeds starting to appear and eventually they began to choke out the beautiful flowers. Some parts of the field were nothing but weeds. I couldn’t see a flower anywhere. Finally, I asked Holy Spirit, “Where am I? What am I looking at?”
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “This field represents the garden of your heart. What you sow into it, you reap. Your beliefs, your thoughts, your words, they all determine what the garden of your heart will look like. In this area Julie, you are growing strong and vibrant. The flowers Julie. Look at them! They are beautiful. People will come from all over to smell these flowers. They are the fragrance of Christ; places you have given over wholly to Jesus. You have sown well in these areas of your heart and others will come and pick these flowers and be changed by them. They will learn from them. They will take their seeds, and plant them the garden of their own hearts and they too, will reap a beautiful harvest that will draw others unto our Father.” If you could have seen this part of the garden! It was beyond words! Butterflies danced around on the tops of the flowers. The Holy Spirit told me they can live here because they represent transformation and these parts of me that have truly been transformed. They were a sign of the condition of this area of my garden; my heart. They were a confirmation; a prophetic sign.
As I continued on, some weeds began to appear and the flowers were less and less. It didn’t look like the part of the garden I had just been overwhelmed in by beauty and fragrances. Holy Spirit is a great teacher, a wonderful guide, and I could tell He couldn’t wait for me to ask Him more questions. He loves to be intimately involved in our lives. So, I asked Him. “Holy Spirit, why does this particular part of the garden of my heart not look as pretty? How did these weeds get here?” Immediately He responded, “My sweet Julie. These weeds, they are words you have spoken that were not fruitful. They weren’t good words. They weren’t uplifting, or in faith. They are things you spoke that in some way, they weren’t positive. Some of them were fear based. These types of seeds produce weeds, not flowers. They also work to choke out the good seeds you have planted. Some of these weeds are things spoken against you by others. You took them in. You agreed with them; even though that’s not who Daddy God says you are. They took root and they grew and began their work of attempting to choke out the beautiful parts of you; the flowers.”
I was so humbled. Right in the middle of the path I knelt and asked God to purify my words, my thoughts, and my heart. I looked up and saw weeds being pulled out in droves. They were being taken away in wheel-barrows. Heaven was intimately involved in this process. There were now empty places where weeds once were. I looked at Holy Spirit. He knew what I was going to say; yet waited eagerly for me to ask. “Holy Spirit, now that the weeds are gone, will more flowers come up?” I began to feel the warmth of the sun touching my face. It was so peaceful and calming. Holy Spirit spoke so gently and softly to me, “My sweet Julie. Even now, look close at the soil. The purifying of your heart has allowed the once small and striving flowers to break forth and begin to grow. The more life that flows from your being, the more flowers will begin to appear.” In excitement I began proclaiming scriptures, “You make everything beautiful in its time! You make all things new! I am a new creation! I am Your beloved! Your love for us is deep, and wide, long, and high! Oh how you love us! Bless this person Lord. Give me more love for that person Lord.” With every positive, life-giving word I spoke, new life was coming forth. Flowers were popping up all around me in great variety and color. It was breathtaking! I never wanted this feeling to end.
As I followed Holy Spirit, I was led to another section of this field; my heart. It was in total disarray. I couldn’t believe my eyes. “What is this unkempt field Holy Spirit? Please tell me? I desperately want to change this!” I looked over and saw something carved into a nearby tree. I walked closer to read it. Inscribed on this tree was the phrase, “generational words.” Suddenly I realized, it’s not just genetics that we inherit through our generational lines, but words spoken and never dealt with too; even emotions. I could hardly take this in.

“Holy Spirit! I want to take this land back from the enemy. Every word, every emotion, every unhealthy tendency. What do I do? This field is nothing but weeds!” Drawn to my knees again, I cried out on behalf of the generations before me. As I stood up, Holy Spirit handed me a hose and uttered the words, “The Blood Speaks! It speaks A BETTER WORD.” I began to spray the hose all over the field; covering it with the blood of Jesus and asking Father God to bring forth new life and beauty to this entire area. Before my eyes, every weed came down and flowers began to appear in droves. Too many to count! I found myself so overjoyed I ran through the field dancing and shouting, “The blood! The blood! There’s life in the blood! The blood of Jesus!”
Beloved, God is looking for a people who long for radical transformation. He wants you to take back ground in the garden of your heart. He wants to transform and equip you. But don’t you see? In this entire vision I was cooperating with things the Holy Spirit was leading me to say and do. I was appropriating and taking back what was mine because of the finished work on the Cross! I was breaking agreements with the enemy, and making agreements with Heaven. I was repenting and declaring! This is what God wants. People will hear His word, hear His instructions, and then do them! Take the journey. Cry out to the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to be your comfort, your help, your guide, your teacher. He will lead you. He leads, we follow, and new life comes forth. Amen and amen!!!

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
