while i know its not always the easiest thing to express ones exact thoughts and feelings out in words in a forum...I do appreciate you guys working with me here.

I could really care less about a position or title...for the most part I want to do what I discovered or was made understood what I was created for.

Sometimes in the midst of the training and waiting, I still want to see God the more, but then again im certain im not alone on that one

You are so right. For so long I wanted someone to teach me how to do this or to do that, to know exactly what I was supposed to be doing, and to know how to do it, but I didn't get any help from man. It was God alone leading and teaching.

What I've learned is that if you are get out where the people are, God will use your gifts and talents and the track record of using your gifts and talents will result in someone giving you a label.

At this point, I don't want a label. I am Mia Sherwood and I do whatever I can to help people. I am a daughter of the King and sister to my brethren. I help in anyway that I can and whenever possible through supernatural/natural my gifts.

Just curious, did you even know what all of your gifts were though?

i definitely felt that way for some time then I stopped when I couldn't come to any conclusions.

..and yes thats the other thing, getting out among the people, its just not something that you can picture in your mind happening, things just happen when and how they do.

That part confused me for a bit also at one point because i used to wonder, how can i exercise a gift i dont know i have, or as the word says, the spirit uses them as he wills.

Its been a short ride, but an adventure nevertheless :)

I didn't have a clue about my gifts. All I knew was that when I dreamed it came true. It was only by trial and error, and being willing to look like a fool that I learned that I had prophetic gifts.

I still don't have any conclusions. I just have gifts that manifest when God wants them too.

The thing that caused my gift to grow was just doing it. Start stepping out and be willing to be rebuffed, rebuked, whatever just to be a benefit to the Body of Christ. I didn't know if something was really from God until I did what I felt He was leading me to do. Then, I found out those things bubbling up in me were really God! And THEN the devil attacked every time I tried to step out, ESPECIALLY when it was God. He will try to convince you it wasn't God and that you are going to look like a fool ... especially because you ARE operating in the Holy Spirit.

Jeremiah didn't know if it was God talking all the time either. Which is why I, like him, test the waters before I launch out with anything.

Wow thats pretty amazing... I have always said the gifts of utterance are the most scary in the sense that they are the most sensitive. They can edify the body like no other, and they can also cause you certain attacks as such as you have described as well as make you feel completely out of place in your mind.

When I have went into a series of tongues in the middle of a service, ive held back from fear in the past feeling thing like, is he going to give me the interpretation, because everyone is quiet now and listening, how long is too long to speak in another language no one understands, etc... you can imagine the things that come to you in that instance

Im seeing you are saying its all by faith and to step out.

There is one thing you may have been a little wrong about here Mia, or to what I believe is that you can learn things from people.... ultimately God is your trainer and teacher, but he uses his people indeed.

Now when you say test the waters... what does that exactly entail?

It's not that I wouldn't have loved to learn, there was no one to teach me! I was on the border of Mexico, in a very small community with only one prophetic church and I begged God for a mentor but there was none where He had me. I had to learn by trial and error.

When I give a personal prophecy there are times that I feel a very, very, very strong unction and I just go with it. Sometimes something seems like a very sensitive topic so I usually try to ask a question that confirms what God is telling me. When I have the confirmation, I go ahead.

Mia I would like to say again Thank You for sharing that with me.

Those kinds of stories are usually things you dont hear people tell that someone may need to hear.

When I see some people move forth in their gift, it seems like they have no problem hearing God, and its easy to flow into it

1The following message came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of the reign of Zedekiah,a king of Judah. This was also the eighteenth year of the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar.b 2Jerusalem was then under siege from the Babylonian army, and Jeremiah was imprisoned in the courtyard of the guard in the royal palace. 3King Zedekiah had put him there, asking why he kept giving this prophecy: “This is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to hand this city over to the king of Babylon, and he will take it. 4King Zedekiah will be captured by the Babyloniansc and taken to meet the king of Babylon face to face. 5He will take Zedekiah to Babylon, and I will deal with him there,’ says the Lord. ‘If you fight against the Babylonians, you will never succeed.’”

6At that time the Lord sent me a message. He said, 7“Your cousin Hanamel son of Shallum will come and say to you, ‘Buy my field at Anathoth. By law you have the right to buy it before it is offered to anyone else.’”

8Then, just as the Lord had said he would, my cousin Hanamel came and visited me in the prison. He said, “Please buy my field at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin. By law you have the right to buy it before it is offered to anyone else, so buy it for yourself.” Then I knew that the message I had heard was from the Lord.


This is one of my favorite scriptures. It totally relates to the life of the prophetic. Most of the time, the Lord's messages are easy to miss. When I first began flowing in the prophetic it was hard to tell if it was God or it is was me. Just like Jeremiah describes here. By signs and confirmations you find out if it was truly God and by practice you learn to tell the difference.

I have read that story before... it just makes more sense now in relation to what we're discussing... now that I think about it, that is a completely loaded bunch of verses

It seems as though he was sure as he mentioned the Lord sending him a message, but he wasnt completely sure of it until it came to pass (it was put to the test)

What a life to live

The practice is when you get this thing bubbling up in you at church and you are wondering if it's your own thoughts or God's, and then you share it to find out and say, I'm new at this but this is what I have in my heart.............

God gave me prophecy with a specific date that it was going to happen. I wasn't positive about it but figured I'd know for sure when the date came. It was Him.

Doesn't have to be at church thought. That was just an example.
