“A Gentle Spirit with a Giant Message, is how I describe Holly Smith. Women are drawn to her message because of her genuine love for Christ and her transparency portrayed in her testimony. The message Holly shares thru ‘The Cracked Pot’ will touch and bring freedom to women of all generations. She shares God’s message with a passionate commitment to change the lives of others in a positive way. She recently spoke at a Powerful Journey Women’s Conference. The evidence of the power in her message was shown as her session quickly filled with standing room only. As God continues to do a great work through Holly, she will be an added bonus to any program.”

“I believe God’s ultimate aim is to cause you to conquer your greatest fear. He does this by exposing the lie you believed. One lie is to look to yourself for ability and deliverance. I didn’t need a master’s degree to follow my Master’s decree to my destiny.”
— Holly Smith
Is. 49:11 “I will turn all my mountains into roads and my highways will be raised up.”
Redemption is My word for you for 2021. My redemption draws near. You have been through the pangs of birth for many whom I will redeem. Your testimony, My story in your life will save many who have lost their compass.
I have truly made you a covenant for My people and how have I done it? Your lives are an illustration of My promise for others. When they see the result of their trials turning into blessings they will rejoice. The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. (Is. 51:14) This has always been My plan to use your difficulties on your journey to give strength and resolve to overcome the enemy and pave the way for others.
For I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of My wrath, you will never drink again. I will put it into the hands of the tormentors, who said to you, ‘Fall prostrate that we may walk over you, and you made your back like the ground.’ (Is. 51:22-23) Yes, I allowed the cup that made you stagger so that you could become strong, stand and thrive against your enemies of shame, poverty, fear, and rejection because I never intended you for man’s approval but for My approval. Now you can give proof that you did not lack bread as you went through this process of being set free. For My arm is not too short to save and My refining fire draws near for others now. I want to see all the dross come to the surface to be cast off in this hour-for I am a redemptive God and want to regather you to My shelter but you need to be cleansed and repentant.
I want to be your guide and rule and govern your lives so fall on Me, Your rock, and derive strength and dependence from Me. Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God and in due time I will raise you up. (I Peter 5:6) You are not able to accomplish this yourselves. I am rebuilding you in My image as you surrender all striving. So persevere in following my directions and you will see what I produce in you! For I have made you upright men and women and you will be My plumb line for others to look up to and measure their growth and standards to live by.
Redemptive suffering is always redeemed for another, for those coming in your path. You are making a highway for travel, for hope, for joy, removing the obstacles to freedom-
“And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” (Is. 51:11)
Daughter, I am making you a place of rest for My people. I am coming to inhabit you in a remarkable way you cannot imagine. Everything you have studied or meditated on, your cause, your prayers will be used in your library of wisdom as I speak fresh revelation through you. You will model the picture of peace even in a storm; you will be a lighthouse, a rescue signal for those who are looking for their way home. All you have been through will be used for those coming in your path.
Is. 50:7-8 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. He who vindicates me is near.
See, I have known from the beginning how I planned to use you. I knew the zigs and zags and distractions you would take but now you are My Bride-you are committed and surrendered to Me and part of My Royal Priesthood that will bring those who were once darkness into My beautiful light. You will praise and worship in advance before you see the victories. Your blood is precious in My sight and I will protect you from the evil one. Stay strong and have faith in the Lord and in His mighty power. I love you daughter and I plan to use you mightily to help bring My spotless Bride to Me and in the coming harvest!
I see a silver star which is a reminder of the Eastern star the wise men used to find Jesus. Silver stands for redemption as I am redeeming the years the locusts have eaten in your life and your Valley of Achor will become your door of hope in this next season!
What did you go out in the desert to see?
A reed swayed by the wind? (Luke 7:24 NIV) As a child John the Baptist grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the desert until he appeared publicly in Israel. (Luke 1:80 NIV) Solitude with God in the desert was his school. He gained the lessons and experiences needed to verify his beliefs, listened to God’s voice, and became forthright to resist an unbelieving world and shun popularity for the cause of the kingdom. No, you didn’t go out to see a flimsy reed tossed and turned with every wind but a prophet who would prepare the way for the Lord who was coming to baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire. What do you need to do to firm up your reed and prepare the way?
May I pray for you?
Lord make us strong! Help us to keep a tender heart but toughen our skin in the times coming that we will stand boldly for your truth. Help us to lean on you and not our own understanding-in all our ways to acknowledge you and you will make our paths straight. Amen
Praying for the Josephs in all the families and countries-there is someone who has been misunderstood, thrown in the pit but brought out at this time to help their families and their nation at this time of need. The rest of the family will then have eyes to see the reason for the journey they have had. There will be a great reconciliation. They will be able to save their family in difficult times such as these and bring peace and security through their faith.
Things that used to plague you from the past have gone away-you see yourself in a new light. In fact you have become very transparent! (II Cor. 3:18) And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
God is watching over you with great love and protection. He tells me you are a dreamer. He is sending dreams in the night and you will learn to value them and learn the dream language to interpret them for others. He’s helping you to see through the eyes and mind of Christ. You have the word to sustain the weary! God is using your knowledge of His word, your experience, and dreams to express His heart in this season. His favor is on you!!
