God’s Treasures Will Last Forever!

God’s Treasures – Patricia & Marcus Winchester

I recently included a testimony in my newsletter from Patricia Winchester who shared with me, “I don’t ask God Why, I say Why Not Me?” She recently shared her personal trial and testimony at her church! My Enews included the entire sermon…but, for just Patricia’s testimony Click Here. It is a message of HOPE and is very worth sharing with those who are in a battle of any kind and of course those who have never received the hope of an eternal home with Jesus Christ.

God’s Treasure – Revivalist Barbara Weeks Spayd

My good friend Barbara Weeks Spayd packed her bags and went home to be with the Lord, this past May. Her church Lifepoint prepared a wedding banquet as a celebration of her life. Barbara taught on becoming the Bride of Christ and was passionate about this topic.

So thankful for mom’s church family at Life Point – the memorial service was set up like a wedding banquet – so appropriate for a woman who was so in love with her Bridegroom – absolutely sure she would have LOVED it 😊. Jeanine Post

I was able to spend time with her just before I left last November for Alaska. Our last meeting together she prayed over me, and said in her always affirming voice… You WILL finish your race strong!

A friend wrote about her memorial service…

Went to the beautiful celebration of life for this dear friend this morning. As usual, I left feeling better than when I went in. It was always the case when being with Barbara. I’m so thankful she was in my life. I’m also a little jealous that she gets to be in heaven right now. Also thankful that we will see her again. Can’t wait.

Her last trip to Israel she began a blog which may be viewed here.

Barbara and I met whenever we could when she was home from Israel. She would email or write to me over the span of  over two decades and was always a source of strength, encouragement and spiritual mother.

I pray for you regularly because I know you are so talented and have a great anointing on your life and destiny arranged by God for you before the foundation of the world.
I can only tell you what I am doing, and Richard confirmed this morning that I am right on.
Devour the Word Marlene, I read all of the Book of Revelation yesterday and Hebrews this morning. I don’t ever remember devouring the Word like I am this last few weeks.
Just read until God gives you a Rhema Word and then cling to that Word for dear life. Jesus is the Word and He is our Bread, the Bread of Life.
What’s happening is that our faith is being stretched like never before. We are no longer in the boat and what that means to me is that if He doesn’t rescue us, we’re lost. I’ve been in such pain with my leg this week, but remember Moses was on the backside of the desert when God called him to deliver His chosen people.

Richard had a word this morning that we can only go on as high a mountain as we have been prepared for through our testings and experiences.

And you my dear friend have had more than your share of problems.

Command that depression to get off you right now. You have the authority. Encourage yourself in the Lord and review every promise He has given you. I pray for a witty invention for you. This is a trial of your faith, but because Jesus is interceding for you you will find your destiny.
This morning he said, “We can call our future in right now because God has already finished it.” So I say to you, “NO MORE DELAYS. NO MORE DETOURS. YOU ARE GOING INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND!”
 
Talk to you soon.
 
Barbara

 

Naomi
God’s Treasure – Evangelist Naomi Moore    I’m So Glad You Prayed for Me!

A third woman God brought my way almost thirty years ago is Naomi Moore. She has been praying for me and my sons ever since.  We were able to sit, laught and share God’s goodness together!  You can listen to a special testimony about a phone that was dead and came to life…just in the nick of time! I’ve titled it The Resurrected Phone!

These are just three amazing women God has put in my life that I would like to honor and share with you today!

There so many men and women in my life who are so very special to me. I am reminded each day how we all need one another, and how important it is to stay connected with those God brings our way!

Looking forward to us all finishing the race well!

Searching for God’s Treasures,

Marlene

A little About Marlene Marlene was raised in Sanford, Florida, the daughter of a 12th generation farmer and part Cherokee mother. Marlene first met Jesus at the tender age of six sitting in an orange tree in her backyard. This was when she first felt the Holy Spirit speaking to her about going to different nations and sharing the love and resurrection power of Jesus to others. She is mother to four sons, three grandchildren, and has many spiritual sons and daughters. Isaiah 54 is her life chapter. It was from that scripture God gave her two specific promises about her physical children, "All your children will be taught of the Lord and have great peace.”(Isaiah 54:13) and, “Your decendents will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” (Isaiah 54:3) Marlene follows the leading of the Lord and goes wherever and by whatever means God guides and provides. She ministers in meetings, retreats, slums, villages, churches and alongside others who are also called to share the good news, pray for the sick and hurting. She has a heart to equip and train the latter day church helping them to prepare for the harvest that is ripe. She is a mother and father to those who are broken, hurting and orphaned. This could be across the street or across the world. It could be in the jailhouse, at someone’s penthouse or simply a backyard BBQ. Wherever she is, her desire is to minister bringing hope and healing. She has a heart for the lost, backslidden and broken and Her desire is to love and know the Lord fully and unconditionally always growing in His grace, wisdom, and mercy; becoming the Lord's perfect bride, without spot or wrinkle. God created us to be beautiful. She wants you to know His love and become God’s treasure in and on the earth, maturing and growing to help others find their identity and place and to finish the race well. God searches today for those who will make Him their single desire, who will say with the Psalmist and King David that, “the Lord is the portion of mine inheritance” (Psalm 16:5). They will be His special possession because, “the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure” (Psalm 135:4). 850-661-6104 24/7 Prayer CinderellaReleased.Me cinderellareleased@gmail.com Webpage http://cinderellareleased.wixsite.com/cinderellareleased
