"How fast is a Lamborghini, approximately 220 mph. The speed of thought is equal to the speed of light. Our voices travel approximately at the speed of light. How fast is the speed of light, 186,000 mi/sec. Compared to the speed of our thoughts, our voices and light that Lamborghini is standing still. It is pretty though."
The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses: the normal limits to human perception.
• the state of being or process of becoming aware of something:
• a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression:
• intuitive understanding and insight:
How far can you walk with a broken heart and shattered dreams? A day, a week, a month, a lifetime? I am a living testimony that you can walk around broken for a very long time, yes even after we meet Jesus. We may hide the hurt and pain from ourselves and others but understand this...little by little He will clean out our heart and restore our soul.What is broken will be exposed sooner or later, mine happened later.
The year was 1974 I was 16 and a virgin. I was saving my heart for that special person. I met someone whom I believed was going to be that one. When our relationship ended my heart was broken and without Jesus there was no way to repair it.
Like anybody else I learned to live with the hurt and pain but I was totally unaware of the consequences.
It would be many years later when it first started happening... the pain.
I was in my mid 40's, happily married and with a thriving ministry when all of a sudden I found myself complaining that I was in pain. I didn't know where it came from or what it was... I just knew I was in pain from somewhere deep inside. This unsettling pain wore on me day and night for years to come...There was no amount of praying that brought me relief. i couldn't get the source of my pain it was buried too deep in my heart.
My own personal discomfort and pain was all the enemy needed to eventually wear me down and do the unthinkable...the year, 2007.
2008~2009 were the most messed up years for me.
We are all responsible for our choices in this life but believe me when I say, the enemy made sure the source of my pain was uncovered during this time period.
God allowed this to happen because it needed to be exposed. How I went about coping and fixing the problem was inappropriate.
Guilt, condemnation and shame became my constant bedfellows.They were as relentless as they were brutal. I had taken all that God had given to me, threw it back in His face and walked away. Holy Spirit was screaming for me to stop my decision making process as what I would do next would make matters worse than before. Somehow I was convinced if I could find the person who was the cause of the pain then it would be relieved, possibly healed. I was wrong.
The amount of pain escalated. My decision making became worse and worse until finally in the fall of 2009 what was left of my broken heart burst. I walked away from this newly formed relationship knowing that pursing it was not going to heal me but had actually made matters worse and my life was becoming increasingly much more complicated...
While driving that afternoon Holy Spirit said to me, Are you finished? Are you ready? Can we start now?
I said yes that day and have not looked back.
It's never too late to get your healing!!!
Get yours today...
It was fall 2009 and the Lord provided the perfect operating table for me. He had a place on the seashore during the off season. Unaware of the intensity that would ensue I remember feeling a very deep love coming from Him. I knew I had earned His disapproval and His dissatisfaction but I wasn't expecting His love. I knew when I walked into the efficiency that it was mine, I just knew. I was not really aware of my proximity to the ocean but when I opened the window I heard the pounding of the surf, smelled the salty air and felt the oceans gentle breeze. It made the curtains shiver. It was then that I heard my Fathers voice,
"How do you like our new place? I knew you loved the ocean Tom. I wanted you to be happy during this time as you have endured so much sadness and loss.
I knew you would enjoy having the ocean right outside your window."
Tears streamed down my face as deep sobs welled up from my wounded soul. I felt so unworthy to be loved and yet that was part of His plan.
His love is unconditional, deeper than the sea, wider than the ocean. His love is stronger than any mighty fortress the enemy may have in your life. His love endures all things, believes all things, conquers all things and heals all things...
What do you mean I'm finished? Father you said I would be here six months and it's only been four. My son, Did you not listen to Me when we first came here? I said I would give you six months to deal with things and what you avoided or chose to shy away from dealing with would follow you into your next season... But my son you have dealt with all that I have asked and yes even more in just four short months. I am very proud of you. It is time to go.
But go where?
Tom, Do you know the scripture verse John 3:8? So shall your life be like this now. Behold old things have passed away and all things have become new. The crack and brokenness in your heart has been repaired and now we are going to rebuild.
I packed what little I had left and headed to Florida. Over the next few months the Lord provided lodging, meals and meetings without a single announcement being made. No business cards or phone calls just word of mouth.
Although my strength and confidence weren't there I was available.
It was June 3rd, 2010 when Father said by this time next month you'll be in Africa. I barely laughed because I had seen His graciousness towards me. July 4th, 2010 I was on a plane to Uganda. I would be there for four months and the testimonies would rival the book of acts.
The Lord blessed us with property and many new churches which are still thriving until this day... They are called, "Breakthrough Worship Centere's"
Father how can I go from walking around Africa to this much snow? I had only been back a few short months when the Lord said come back to New England. Plymouth was where I was born and raised so I was very familiar with this part of the country.
Father God was not done with my healing and through out the course of the year of 2011 He would validate this over and over again. Each decision was a step of progress for me and for Him. He was now healing more recent hurts as the past ones were fine.
Angels All Around...
Throughout my life as a Christian I have had many encounters with angels. I very seldom mention this due to the fact it's about Him not angels. People tend to get angel envy or possibly angel worship... the idea of going to meeting to see angels more than a desire to see Him manifest... Anyways I stayed away from mentioning my angelic visitations and virtually the only person who can validate many encounters would be Lynn whom I was married to for almost fifteen years.
It was August 2011 when I had a tangible manifestation happen of which I had not happen before in all my years as a Christian. It was while I was on a small step ladder painting outside that the presence of the Lord overwhelmed me. I could feel His hand literally under my rib cage. His fingers grasped ever so slightly around my heart. Father said, Pray for Lynn now and He squeezed my heart. He repeated this numerous times and with each squeeze I doubled over the ladder. Tears streaming down my face I thought what is going on and then it happened, they appeared. Jesus and Father God together side by side right beside me. As they were speaking to me I heard another familiar voice of which I had not heard it or from him directly in more than three years. I knew the voice of the enemy all to well. Yes lucifer knew me and I knew him.
From out of no where he appeared to my other side taunting me about my ability to pray for Lynn. He shouted about her demise and mine and that I would fail in any attempts I made towards her through prayer.
Then he simply vanished.
The Lord specified to pray for her... I immediately got off the ladder shaken and called her. I shared with her about what happened what the Lord said were her symptoms and prayed for her... Her foot was immediately healed as we spoke.
I say this as a testimony to His goodness and mercy.
I will end with this that unto me appeared another angel in the month of November 2011 in Sarasota Florida. The lord gave me a dream three times in a row in the same eve and to me He sent and angel to explain the dreams, the time frames, people and places of events.
Angels are all around us!!! Open your eyes...
Christmas 2012 -
As of this writing Prophet Tom is presently in Sarasota Florida.
Some days back I lay awake in the early morning hours reflecting on the healing journey I've been on over these last few years and I had a visitation. He reminded me that is was just about this same time last year that he came to me. He reminded me all is well with my soul and that I need to proclaim to the people that 2014 will be your year of deliverance, your year of freedom. You are to enter into 2014 expecting an ending to one thing and demanding the new to begin.
Healing is on the way for many, marriages are plenty as the waiting is over. He said anticipate the supernatural intervention of God. Enter in expecting...
2014 & Beyond
Prophet Tom is grateful to be used again but I must admit the battles have been long and tiresome. The Lord forgives for He is gracious but my battle has been with self. Throughout this whole healing journey I have embraced to the best of my ability His grace and His mercy. I have received His forgiveness but I have not been able to forgive myself until just a matter of weeks ago. Yes my Christmas present to myself was to Forgive Tom, not on the surface but deeply forgive myself for thinking I let God down, I could have done better or differently.
I had to relinquish or give up my ability to mourn or grieve any longer over how much I let people down, that I failed miserably in my ability to reconcile relationships and that I hurt those that I loved the most. The two most precious and valuable things He gave me I lost because of past unhealed emotions.
Lessons have been learned, people are loved even deeper than before and I am also holding onto His promises for my future.
See you in 2014 !!!
Who do you say I am
I would be unable to finish out this year if I didn't ask you these questions.
Do you know who Jesus Christ is? Do you know Him as your Lord and Savior? How about your healer?
I 'm sure many of you reading this already do know about Him but I must ask you again as it was asked me time and time again over these last few years while I was on my healing journey,
Who do you say I am?
We say we know Him. We share with some people who He is but a sure sign something is off is when we just stop talking about what He is doing for us now verses what He has done for us in the past. Time does slip by quickly, people do pass in and out of our lives just as fast and if we are not careful Jesus will be a memory of whom we try to keep alive through our dead works. Don't let another year go bye without getting your healing. Start your journey in 2014. Say yes to Him and you will find out that He is not dead as you thought but He is very much alive. He is willing He is able but are you?
Renew your contract with Him in 2014 and get a new lease on life.
