Lost on a crooked path, Joanna couldn't see the wood for the trees. Denied her dreams, she'd got caught up with Silver-tongue, an evil manipulative liar. Seeking a way out of the maze, she encountered the King, who she'd been estranged from. She turned to him for counsel after discovering he was Abba, her Father.
Leading Joanna to a narrow road, he told her to set up signposts and build landmarks. She was to set her heart on the highway leading to his Kingdom and a forgotten inheritance.
But here be dragons, and Silver-tongue. She had to battle her way out of bewilderment in order to break free.
Learning the King's will from the book he inspired, Joanna found that you can't live by bread alone.
“Call to me, and I will show you great and wonderful things” the King promised.
His word came alive. She dreamed dreams and followed signs.
Given a shepherd’s staff in the Valley of Shadow, Joanna was led along the Path of Righteousness. Picking up her lamp, she followed him towards the sunrise. His word was like a light shining in a dark place.
As Joanna struggled through the Valley of Trouble she learned that you have to go through many trials to enter the Kingdom of God.
In the desert Joanna had to make a choice between Ishmael, and Isaac … the son of the promise.
Faith in the King came by hearing, and hearing by the word. Listening to the King Joanna discovered that when he spoke ONE thing, TWO things could be heard. Paying attention, she listened to the word called 'Logos' for learning and the word called 'Rhema' for revelation. In marking the road home by the Rhema word, she uncovered her part in a story that had begun generations ago.
