On 7/23/2021 I saw a vision of a woman with long, blonde hair dancing with a man with her head on his shoulder. Then I saw a vision of me as a little girl watching Robert Conrad of the Wild, Wild West series on TV. End of visions. Since Robert Conrad died last year, I wondered why the Lord gave me that vision. Was He trying to show me a familiar spirit for some reason?
Both visions together made me think about “Taryn B”, the self-proclaimed scribe of the Lord, who I first wrote about in my post “Something Familiar”. So, I asked the Lord if “Taryn B” (not her real name) was the woman with the blonde hair dancing with a man.
The Lord responded by showing me a vision of a light turning on in the kitchen. I took this to mean yes since He was depicting a “lightbulb moment”.
Readers familiar with my stories will know that I have exposed several “wolves in sheep’s clothing” with my writing, which has ruffled many feathers along the way. Several of these people have even launched attacks against my ministry, my family and my pets. I even wrote about one such example in “The Deceiver Who Brought Flowers”.
So, I asked the Lord if “Taryn” was involved in a plot to hurt me in some way? And if so, how?
He then gave me a series of visions that pertained to my cousin, Ella (not her real name). I just couldn’t believe it. First the enemy came after my cats, then my ministry, then my computer, and now my family members! So naturally, I started asking for confirmation from Him.
On 7/25/2021 the Lord gave me two visions: In the first one, I saw me getting beaten with a poker. In the next vision, I saw someone, who was standing behind me, cut my throat with a knife. End of visions. I felt that the Lord was depicting the word “cutthroat”. The next morning, I looked up cutthroat. It means fierce and intense; involving the use of ruthless measures. Or it can mean a murderer or other violent criminal.
On 7/26/2021 around 12:29 AM I heard my phone beep twice. When I checked my phone there was the following text message on it:
Hey are you Giovanni? im Manda… we matched on Coffee Meets Bagel last time I came up to hang with my cousin but we never met for drinks.. Im back in the area for now if you still want to truly meet up this time, are you around?
Now, at first I thought it was just a wrong number. But then I saw the word “cousin” and had to do a double take. The next morning, I looked up Coffee Meets Bagel and it turned out to be a dating website based out of San Francisco. Then I looked up the meaning of the name Giovanni. It means “God is gracious.” The meaning of the name Manda in Latin means “harmony, beloved” but it also has a Hindi origin, where its meaning is “Saturn, occult god”. Whoa! I wondered if this was confirmation about Taryn B and her dancing partner plotting against my cousin.
Well, I wasn’t taking any chances. So, later that morning I called Ella and told her about my visions concerning Taryn B. Now Ella loves the Lord, but many distractions have caused her to drift away from Him lately. So, I encouraged her to start praying again, and even sent her a simple prayer to pray, which is below.
Father, please forgive my sins and transgressions as I forgive all those who have come against me.
I plead the blood of Jesus over me and my loved ones.
I BIND the forces of evil and command them to flee from me & mine in a Jesus name.
I LOOSE ______( peace, love, healing & wholeness, mercy & grace, blessings & favor, protection, provision, strength) over me & mine.
I decree that there is a hedge of protection around me & mine at all times.
Father, By your stripes, I declare that me & mine are healed and made whole in every way.
Father, may your kingdom come. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Then around 5:30 PM she texted me that two men had tried to kidnap her teenage daughter from a Walmart parking lot! Her daughter resisted and was able to get away from them unharmed.
Below is the text from my cousin on 7/26/2021 around 6:00 pm. (Note: I removed her family members names for the sake of privacy).
Just think about this. You and I talked. You said pray. I did. We said Satan will not win. So, I prayed. I told Satan to get away from us and talked to Jesus and asked him to forgive and to put a hedge of protection around ____, ___ and ____. I prayed for him to intervene. And now this happens! Maybe that was the vision you had but was not clear. Wow. Dana, just wow. You gave me a heads up to danger today. You calmed me
Yes, the fervent effectual prayers of a righteous man do avail much! Praise the Lord for his tender mercies on my family!

The Lord began drawing Dana to Him about six months before she was saved. By January of 2015, the urgency to make a decision about God was so strong, that it was all she could think about, but she was clueless how to even get saved. One day in her bedroom, she cried out to God telling him she really wanted to be saved, but she didn’t know how. Then she had the thought, maybe she could Google it. And that’s what she did. She found instructions on the Internet and said the Salvation prayer out loud.
In 2017 the Lord led her 600 miles away from her family, friends and home to a place she had never been and did not want to go – Missouri. Then in April of 2019 the Lord gave her a vision of a woman sitting at a desk, writing on paper. That’s when she knew He wanted her to write, but what on earth could she possibly write about? Then in July of 2020 the Lord gave her a vision of an eyebrow pencil outlining a woman’s eye. She interpreted that to mean “I OUTLINE”. And that is exactly what He did. And that’s how the Lord got her to pick up her pen.
