For many people 2018 has been a tough year. I know personally that this year was a year of hardship, suffering, and much pain but I am believing the rest of 2018 will end with a heavenly reward for the patient prayers so many have prayed for.
Last Saturday I asked my sister to add a little bit of color to my hair because I am believing that many people (including myself) are stepping into the final season and will see breakthrough this Christmas season. As we were going through the process of mixing the color, applying it, waiting (what seemed like FOREVER), and then seeing the beautiful end result, God began to speak and whisper in my ear, "Makyna, this year has been a long year for many. Many people have been patiently waiting to see their breakthrough. And the time is NOW!" As God spoke this, I became very encouraged and hopeful. I also began thinking about the process of dying your hair and how it is similar in ways to getting to breakthrough. Mixing the color in this analogy is like spending time in His word, applying it is the prayer process for which you are believing, waiting is simply waiting – whether that is for God to speak, for dreams, visions, or for God to show up. Then finally the beautiful end result: the breakthrough.
Now when you spend time in God's word you are gearing up to fight your battles in prayer and you are opening your ears and heart to hear Him. I believe prayer will be your greatest weapon for receiving your breakthrough. God's voice is hope for when you don't understand why your breakthrough hasn't come YET. Often God speaks through other people, the Bible (that is why it is so important to be in it daily), and lastly, He speaks through your thoughts and desires. When we are in tune with the Holy Spirit we see and hear Him through our normal day.
God has been doing some amazing things in my life and I believe that we are very close to seeing our breakthroughs. On Wednesday as I was making a prayer list for December, I heard God speak, "Makyna, these are the final prayers. What you pray for now is the most important." God has also been confirming and showing me many things about him and his character in this season that I don't yet feel I can share. However, yesterday I received an email with the image below that simply stated "Your breakthrough is coming." This one image confirms exactly how I feel about this month and season ahead.

If you feel like you have been in a dry season or you are not where you thought you would be, this is your encouragement. From now on it will be different. God is working and sending angels ahead of you to prepare you for what you have been so patiently waiting to receive. When God gives you a word He WILL NOT go back on that word. You are worth it. Don't settle.
Prophetic words from others give hope and encouragement until we see our breakthrough.
Here are some of the prophetic words that I have been closely following:
