The Coming Tsunami… Where will you be and what will you be doing?
I dreamed I was in a military vehicle being deployed when all of a sudden all I could see were vehicles, buildings and water being swept over and under what appeared to be an infinity pool.
One minute everything was normal and the next, all I could see was water and vehicles going under.
As I watched in horror I felt a tremendous need to yell and tell the driver not to turn onto the upcoming bridge because the water was coming that direction. The sound of the trucks and the approaching wave drowned out my voice. It was obvious we would turn onto the bridge and be directly in its’ path.
My next recollection was being out of the truck and walking, almost running not on the water; but on vehicles, boxes, containers and debris that were submerged in the water. I felt so young, exuberant, free and able to lightly jump from one floating object onto another as if I was walking on chunks of floating ice.
As I got to the end of all of the floating debris and the wave had passed, I looked out into the endless ocean of water, blue skies & beyond and thought to myself,
“Lord, is this my end? What have I done. Will the next thing I see be your face? Will the next thing I hear be ‘Well done, good and faithful servant?'”
The next thing I remember thinking is “I’ve waited too long to step out.” I don’t think I’m ready for this moment. There is something else I need to do, but I’m not quite certain what my assignment is?
Then, I remember The Parable of the Three Talents and the servant who buried their talent because of fear. (Matthew 25:14-30) I cried out in my sleep, “Lord, don’t let me be afraid, help me to risk it all.”
I felt the Lord saying,
Marlene, your talents aren’t any good if they are buried, or you are not using them for My purpose and plan. In order to be fully satisfied you must risk them all for MY SAKE.
So, with this said, I made the decision to risk it all, give it all, trust it all to Him. The author and finisher of my faith.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
For the past season, I’ve been living and working in Alaska, a state which has the second highest suicide rate in the nation, their largest city Anchorage, is ranked #2 for violent crime and their alcohol mortality rate is three times the national average. In this huge state whose geographic square miles is 663,300 and the entire population is not even 742,000 people, I would consider this a tsunami of crisis and trauma. They need help!
We are seeing many agencies, missionaries, and non-profits who are being called to this state to help serve and bring hope to those who are lost, broken and hurting. Additional crisis and trauma care workers are needed to help in this hour not only for those who are lost, hurting and broken; but their family members, friends, and first responders.
