Hurricane – Who Is Like God?

michael

As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you, and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. Isaiah 66:13

This past week I found myself in the middle of (Hurricane Michael). Last month it was Hurricane Florence. 

After nearly a week with no a/c and limited power, I took ill and found myself laying in my friend’s bed in 95 degree heat wondering, Where is My God? I am so tired, so hot, and so overdone. This hopeless feeling was compounded with guilt from all of the other families who were still without power, and so many with no home, their businesses destroyed,and even some who have lost a loved one(s).

These two devastating storms came on the heels of three other storms that hit in 2017:  Hurricane Harvey, Hurricanes Irma, and Maria.

One minute I lay sick, my strength gone not knowing whether or not I could get up out of the bed in the morning to suddenly it seemed as if a minute passed as I woke up bright eyed at 5:00 a.m.. God had answered my prayer to renew my strength and refresh my dry and thirsty soul.

The Hebrew meaning for the name Michael is “Who is like God?” 

Who but God can answer questions when we endure hardship, extreme loss and even the death of a loved one? Who BUT GOD can refresh a dry and thirsty soul?

Job responds to losses, sickness and trauma by acknowledging and blessing God.

In one afternoon Job had lost his ten children and all his wealth. Shortly afterward he was afflicted with a horrid skin disease. In both these tragedies he kept his faith and revered the sovereign hand of God. In 1:21 he said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” In 2:10 he said, “Shall we receive good at the hand of the God and shall we not receive evil?” He affirmed the absoluteness of God’s control over all things, and he bowed in submission to these heavy blows.

Even though my circumstances had not changed, I was able to thank God for touching my mind, emotions and spirit. I was able to get out of bed and thank Him for His grace and mercy.

Special prayer request:

As of 10/18/2018 the place where I am staying got their power back on! But, unfortunately I have seen devastation like never before and there are many who still have no power, lots of damage and in some cases no place to go until their homes are rebuilt. Please pray for those who have been hit so hard during these storms.

I am still believing the Lord for a place to live, minister and am also working on curriculum and materials for the 2019 Uhuru (Freedom) PowWow to be held in Mwanza, Tanzania next May (2019). I have also been invited to Alaska, the Phillipines and am praying for the Lord’s will and finances. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and also for me to be established where the Lord would have me, at the right times. I am also looking for meetings to share and minister some of the things the Lord has laid on my heart recently for 2019.  May the Lord continue to protect and comfort you now and forever!

You are one of 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
