HIS FRUIT IN HIS RIVER! ~ For the Fish River, Baldwin County, Alabama, USA ~ April 14, 2016
The Fish River is 29.8 miles long, traversed by Hwy 31, Hwy 98 and Interstate 10; known as an estuarine river which means it has both salt and fresh water and both salt water and fresh water fish.

Sara, in my recent journey to McKinleyville, CA, the third portion of the 4th Corner Border State of the America Prayer Journey 2016, Trudy Leppek, a previous HGRM handmaiden and intercessor gave me this Glory Ring saying that she made it about five years ago but wasn’t able to finish it and did not know where it was supposed to go or who it was for. Trudy made Glory Rings for the Rivers of America in 2007-2009 for HGRM and so I asked, is this for a river. She thought that it could be for a river but she did not know which river. Trudy is one of the most anointed artists of the creation of worship arts that I know, so I am especially blessed to send a Glory Ring to you that her hands have touched.
So, I called Randy and asked him, if he and I had crossed any rivers in Alabama during my time there, he mentioned the “Fish River” which resonated in my spirit. After a bit of research, I am quite amazed at all that has been revealed. It seems important to GOD that someone in the first corner border state Prayer Journey receive a Worship Instrument from someone in the third corner border state Prayer Journey and that we are connected in that way for HIS Glory!
I feel like the salt water and the fresh water are symbolic of the OT and NT, the Old Covenant and the New Covenant merging as ONE….because there is only ONE GOD! I feel like the salt water fish and the fresh water fish are symbolic of the Jews and the Gentiles…coming together in the River of God for HIS eternal purposes. As all roots of Christianity are founded in Judaism.
It was humorous to me to find so many different kinds of fishes in the river...certainly symbolic of the people of GOD and their amazing variety. I am sure I have met them all: Sailfin Shiner, Flagfin Shiner, Weed Shiner, Golden Shiner, Swamp Darter, Mosquitofish, Black-bended darter, Alabama bass (formerly spotted bass), Speckled Madtom, Green Sunfish, Bluegill, Warmouth, Dollar Sunfish, Longear Sunfish, Red-spotted Sunfish, Pirate Perch, Brook Silverside, Redfin Pickeral, Black Spotted Minnow, Crawfish, and American Eel to mention a few. The length of the river 29.8 spoke to me prophetically as 29 symbolizes “departure” and 8 symbolizes “new beginning”, and truly we as HIS servants are often required to make a departure from habits, beliefs, thought patterns, lifestyles, friends, family, relationships, land, etc. in order to walk into a new beginning, in order to receive the promises of GOD. I believe Abraham’s life demonstrated this dramatically. I have moved 39 times in my life, each very significantly symbolizing a new beginning, most I did not choose but were the result of another’s decision and I was living the consequence of their decision, yet I know GOD is sovereign and HE has known each time I have moved.
I also felt the 3 roadways (31, 10 and 98) were symbolic of the Trinity, the FATHER, the SON, the HOLY SPIRIT interweaving through our lives always bringing us back to the RIVER OF LIFE!
Ribbons represent the powerful waves (Isaiah 51:15-16), significant movements, and distinctive pleasures of the LORD being released. The colors, symbols and numbers are relevant to each meaning with Scripture as notated in Have Glory Ring will Travel.
The scarves symbolize the breath, air, wind, life of God being released according to HIS riches in Glory, HIS grace, mercy and joy; HIS love, kindness and delight; HIS light, justice and presence; HIS favor, truth and knowledge; HIS discernment, wisdom and revelation. As mentioned above, the colors, symbols and numbers are significant to each meaning with Scripture as notated in Have Glory Ring will Travel!

The peach colored cording on the handle and center of the ring is symbolic of understanding the priesthood of Christ (Hebrews 5, 6, 7, 11; Revelation 1:12-15), the transparency of HIS atoning love, YESHUA as the New Wine, The New Covenant, The Atonement, HIS Sacrifice, HIS purity and holiness, and that Yeshua paid for the reconciliation of humankind unto the FATHER (John 14, 15, 16, 17, 19).

The lace center is symbolic of the Bride of Christ being prepared.

Different lengths of ribbons symbolize the different seasons of our lives in our walk with GOD and how some are shorter and easier and some are wider and more challenging, yet HE is with us through them all.
