Today's guest post is from my friend Lauren. The past several years Lauren has been on a journey of discovering her spiritual gifts and learning to walk in a supernatural lifestyle. Things like hearing prophetic words, seeing angels and demons, and having God-given sensitivity to other's thoughts and feelings. She's going to share some of her story and the questions she wishes she had answers to when she first started to experience the supernatural.
On Christmas day there is always one present that I rush to open before anything else. It's not under the tree, or in my stocking, but on the fireplace mantle there's a little card that has become my favorite Christmas gift. This gift isn't expensive, flashy, or bought in a store, but it's the most personal, encouraging, and valuable gift I open each year.
Today marks the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day; the day on which Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany and forever changed the course of history. In Luther's day the church had drifted into a false doctrine of indulgences and a works based gospel. It was no coincidence that Luther chose October 31st to post his theses.
Yesterday I went on a little adventure. The previous night a friend across the country heard rumor of prayer room walls and a Bible dripping with oil just a few hours from me. A few texts back and forth and she had me connected with a new friend who is a part of the community where this sign and wonder is taking place and I was headed on road trip to meet this beautiful community.
