“In the Valley of Vision I heard You speak to me. “Open the eyes of your spirit and there you will see.”
‘The burden against the Valley of Vision.” Isaiah 22:1 NKJV
The Passion Translation says it this way, “A prophecy concerning “The Valley of Vision”. What’s happening with you?” Isaiah 22:1 TPT
“What’s happening with you?”
I was definitely the Proverbial “deer in a headlight” when I read this sentence.
Lord, how can one see in a Valley? The question His Word posed, “What’s happening with you?” is one I have asked Him and myself for months now. What is happening with me?
Vision in the Strong’s Concordance is the number 2384. Chizzayown – it’s meaning is a dream or revelation. I knew God was trying to get my attention, and answer the question I’ve been pondering in my heart for months. “What’s happening to me?”
Revelation. Open up the eyes of my spirit. Put aside my flesh or the popular “how do you feel” and listen to what He is showing me.
I’ve been carrying a “burden” in my heart for almost a year. It’s time to reclaim my purpose and get on with His plans for me in life.
Revelation light. I’ve been grieving and it’s time to heal.
I picked up my camera for the first time in a very long time with vision to see. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 NKJV
I’m thankful for a Savior who in the Valley has never, no not ever, lost sight of me. I pray today if you have found yourself carrying a burden of heart to lay it down at the feet of the Cross of Jesus Christ for He will comfort you. Allow His revelation light (His Word) guide you to His purpose for your life. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen🙏
I know on any given day it is next to impossible for me to stop by and visit with each of my WordPress neighbors. The confines of life and time prevent even the most willing of reader and neighbor from doing so. Then there was Jesus.
Two thousand year ago, in His first recorded miracle of changing the water to wine at the wedding in Cana, stepped into Capernaum. Jesus, our Bridegroom, steps into our lives to do the same today. Jesus path to our door. Touching our lives, health, homes, relationships with His miracles of refreshing joyous life, even when our “jars” have gone dry and all hope is lost.
Oh, the marriage supper of the Lamb and His Bride.
Jesus, drawing all people to Himself to raise the dead, heal, touch, embrace, change lives, give new direction, and touch hearts. Jesus of Capernaum. Jesus the same yesterday, today and forevermore.
God Bless and Shalom!
“Let us rejoice and exult and give Him glory,
For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and
His Bride has made herself ready…
Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”
Revelation 19:6-9 (ESV)
“Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and
The last of The Woman on the Street of our walk about the neighborhood of Capernaum.
This poem was written when I woke one morning after a dream where I was missing “teeth”. Feeling a bit down, I ponder the dream and its meaning in the midst of writing this mini series of Jesus going about the neighborhood of Capernaum.
Once again, thank you my WP neighbors for always welcoming a fellow neighbor back…even if we are missing a “tooth” or two.
“Right here on “Joyless” street;
There’s a hole in the smile of all my things neat.”
Reaching to touch His garment sweep.
From sickness to health;
Darkness to Light;
From everything wrong,
To everything right.
At the place where
He turned my smile to bright!
Healing is found in
His wings were we meet,
Between “Joyless” and
“The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings…”
Malachi 4:3 NKJV

It has taken me two weeks to mull over the story of theWoman on the Street of Capernaum. I hope you don’t mind joining me for a day or two as we watching her miracle unfold.
Would the woman with the “issue of blood” having heard about Jesus, used her last coins to go by boat to Capernaum?
Located on the other side of the Lake from Capernaum, is the City of Tiberias, a major Roman town known for its warm springs used for healing. Did she hear about Jesus there?Could she have used the last of her coins to pay the entrance tax to look for the Man in Capernaum?
Could someone have told her whose house He was staying, or did she just follow the crowds while she walked the streets of Capernaum.
“When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.” Mark 5:27 (NKJV)
Breaking the Law, she pressed in to touch the hem of His garment, Jesus turning spoke the words she longed to hear…
Healingcame throughThe Door when Jesus entered Peter’s house.
After leaving the synagogue on Sabbath, Jesus’ path took Him right to Peter’s mother-in-law in her time of need. Jesus reached out His hand, “and lifted her up”, and “immediately the fever left her.”(Mark 1:31)
Peter’s house is located within a short walking distance of the synagogue.
