On April 13, 2017, while in a prayer meeting, I had a brief vision of a red dragon-like beast. It had the earth in the mouth of one of its heads and was shaking it violently. At the time, it was very unsettling and set me on a quest to see if I could find a picture that resembled what I saw. Using Revelation 12:3-4, as well as, Red Dragon of China, I searched and found an image that closely reflected the vision. That fall, there was much speculation about Planet X and the alignment of stars that took place on September 23, 2017. Some felt it was a sign in the heavens that was an indication of the the soon return of Christ. I was reminded of the vision this past year as it seems that the present world is certainly being shaken. I wrote the following as a result:
O Sovereign God – I have known and I have heard, the LORD, is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth (Isaiah 40:28). He has commissioned fathers to tell their children about his faithfulness (Isaiah 38:19). It is to you, the faithful one, who never grows tired or weary, and whose understanding no one can fathom that I appeal for strength. I feel we have crossed the point of no return. I declare I am suffering from PTCD (Post-Traumatic Covid Disorder) and it isn’t even over. I shall rename it Present Traumatic Covid Disorder, a condition from which there is no returning. To whom can I turn for relief, for it is you who has stirred up one from the east (The Red Dragon of China), to hand our nation to him and subdue America’s kings before him (Isaiah 41:2). It is just punishment for our defection from your great and glorious laws. We have bowed down to the work of our hands, but the idols are now toppling. O, Just God, for the sake of your remnant few–reveal, save and proclaim you are not some foreign god among us. It is not the “White Man’s God” who has brought this trouble upon America. For you have made all men of one blood, and you have only one begotten Son, who shed his precious blood for the redemption of all who will receive Him! My Living Redeemer, Come, strengthen the weary, increase the power of your weakened ones! Help me to soar!

In her youth, Michelle aspired to be a journalist, but a series of ungodly choices, upended those plans. A few years later, as a married mother of two, she found herself to be more of an actress, as the life lived before others was a shadowing of the self-loathing that was hidden. She at one time would have described herself as being like Lydia from Acts 16, who was a worshipper of God, but whose heart had not yet responded to Paul’s Gospel message. Her life transformation began in 1986 when she was saved from religion and introduced to Jesus. Now she would say that she is an unschooled and ordinary woman, who has spent time with Jesus. Her dream of being a journalist has been indirectly fulfilled by the countless pages she has written to record her faith journey with the LORD in His Word. Some of her accounts are personal but many are profitable and instructive for others. She shares as the LORD leads through a radio ministry and personal witness.
