"What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?"

Lately I have been censoring my blogs, due to my nervousness...
"People are gonna think I'm crazy if I tell them this."
Thoughts like this have been flooding my brain daily.
Mainly because I used to be one of those people...
Until I came to a place where everyone around me worships false Gods and idols.

But today I choose to share.
And tomorrow.
And the day after that.
Because that's what we're called to do..
To share...even if people may think we're crazy.

Warning: If spiritual warfare freaks you out...please stop reading here.

Last night I spent some alone time with God on the roof. I sat there for a long time just praying, “Lord, let me hear you. I’m listening. I just want to hear your voice. I want to know you’re there.” After a long time of silence I went back in my room and fell asleep.

In the night, I was awoken by loud noises. The noises were so loud I sat up in bed wondering if I should leave my room or not. It sounded like creatures. Barking maybe? Growling maybe? But more vicious than that. Sometimes in Arizona I would be woken up in the middle of the night by coyotes finding their pray. But this was something different. There must have been a multitude of them... I listened for a long time, thinking, “Someone else in the house must hear this.” The thing I remember the most was that it sounded like they were trying to get inside. There was banging against the window over and over again, I was sure they were going to break it.

I woke up really early in the morning and went downstairs. I asked everyone who was awake, “Did you hear something last night? Like maybe many dogs trying to get into the house? They kept banging against the window. They were SO loud.”

No one heard anything. And there was no window there, only metal rods.

It was like they were right outside of my bedroom.

Right before I went to sleep I memorized this verse,

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,

but against the rulers, against the authorities,

the cosmic powers over this present darkness,

against the spiritual forces of evil

in the Heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12

There was no glass.

It was the sound of God.

I heard You.

Protecting me.

Shielding me.


  1. Natalie you have so much wisdom and such a story to share that I hope you keep posting whats on your heart!!! I found that when I posted what I thought that I would not be judged and criticized for that I did not touch peoples hearts as much as when i just posted exactly what was on my heart.

    What an amazing story of God's protection!!!!

  2. Do NOT. Ever. Censor yourself. I think your revelations are beautiful.
