So where do I write from? Where is the actual place, what does a writers loft or a prophetic den look like? When I am in Georgia there is a place where I do write and work on books. It's the same place I write prophetic words and I spend most of my time praying. It's a little block building with a tin roof. It's 41.81 sq meters or 450 sq feet. It's not two or three rooms it's one big room. Fifteen feet wide and thirty feet long. Two side windows one door, that's it. The ceiling is open beam. The wiring is old and I have curtains up to divide the space. They told me over the years it was a tool shed, a work shed, furniture repair, pots and plants and even a pottery making room at one time. When I inherited the building it was warehousing old furniture, papers and lots of things which were thrown away. If you saw the pictures from last year you watched the cleaning patching, painting, carpet process. I do not own the building. It is a place that I am allowed to use, to stay in as much as I want when I am in Georgia. It has become home to me when I am here. It is my place of prayer and my writing loft.
My laptop can be used anywhere in the room or I can plug into a bigger monitor if need be. I also have a wifi keypad and mouse. I am a music fanatic. I love my music so my loft would not be complete if it did not have an adequate sound system. My Bose system pumps out worship & warfare music at any level that I thank God the main house is far enough away and everything else around me is cow fields. Acres and acres of grass. I spend lots of daylight hours in the loft but quite often I am out here praying between the third and fourth watch. I love praying in the new day. I love praying for my friends and ministry partners. I pray for whoever and what is on God's heart. Many time prophetic words come forth, visions happen, instructions are given, spiritual insight is imparted. It seems that most of my book writing is in the daytime. The night, early morning hours are primarily for intercession, prayer and worship.
*For those who spotted the big Peavey speaker beside my desk. I do not use them in this space. If I did I'd blow the windows out. I have a set of them plus a Peavey guitar amp, a 12 channel sound board, a 800 watt power amp, some Fender speakers, lots of wireless mics, plug in mics, a Yamaha keyboard under the bed, stand, video camera, tripod my guitar and more. Trust me, you do not want to see behind the curtain. It's not as pretty and organized as the space I use everyday. It's still a work in progress.
I hope you enjoy the photos and the updates. As you can see on our books by Tom page there has been lots of progress as of late. The books are coming along, Many of them at the same time. The Lord has impressed me December is a time of change a time of transition. December is a month to be prepared for. As peaceful as my loft seems in the photos there is a lot of energy in there. And yes behind the curtain in the back is a place to sleep, a fridge, a microwave, hot plate if needed and food. There's plenty to eat and drink if I shut in for a few days. We are winding down for this calendar year. I have much work to do.
This is my writers loft and prayer room when I am in Georgia. I hope you like it.
