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 along with the many other places that are being hit by the enemy! It is time for the Lord’s army to arise and take it’s place in the earth.
For this reason, I am taking the rest of the year to raise support and look for a place to live, study, teach, write, rest and refuel when I am in the lower 48. I am feeling the Lord calling me to teach and train up others for the work and the harvest that is coming. With this I feel there are many who are discouraged and need encouraging to get back in the battle and fulfill what the Lord created them to do to give Him glory.
There is no lack of crisis and trauma in the world, but there is a spirit of fear and hopelessness that is attacking our earth like never before. Whatever time I have left on this earth, I feel it is critical to ask God the question, Where do I go from here? Then to be totally obedient to go takes great strength and courage. At times I feel totally helpless, but God is reassuring me that to delay is disobedience.
So, with that being said, I will go and come from the places God is calling me to go.
I pray to return to Alaska (as the Lord wills and provides) in 2018. I am also feeling there will be a time for me to visit China, and return to work in Kenya for part of the year.
Walking by total faith and seeking God’s direction in this hour of trouble is not easy and at times very lonely. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!
Please consider helping by praying or asking the Lord how you can support me by fasting, praying for giving financially. If you have a group of women or young people who need to be prayed for and encouraged, I would love to come and speak to them.
Whatever you do, please do it as unto the Lord and may He get the glory! He has done such great things in my life.
