The Coming Tsunami… Where will you be and what will you be doing?

military-vehicle

I dreamed I was in a military vehicle being deployed when all of a sudden all I could see were vehicles going 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.

tsunami

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.

psunami-bridge

My next recollection was being out of the truck and walking not on the water but on vehicles, boxes, containers and debris that were submerged in the water.  I felt young and able to lightly jump from one floating debris onto another as if I was walking on chunks of floating ice.

debris

As I got to the end of all of the floating debris and the wave had passed, I looked out into the massive ocean of water 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?'”

standing-out-on-water

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.”

buried-talent

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

Suicide in Alaska

About Alaska’s Suicide Rate:

suicide

“There are lots of theories. Maybe it’s the long dark winters or the isolation of the largest state in the U.S. While these factors may contribute to the problem studies suggest the roots may go deeper.

According to Patrick Sidmore, health planner and research analyst at Alaska Mental Health Board, historical trauma endured by Alaska Natives, as well as adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), put certain groups at a higher risk of suicide. Historical trauma among Alaska Native populations can have a lasng affect for multiple generations. Sidmore cites forced placement of children in boarding schools, destruction of culture and overt racism as examples of trauma. “These events can trigger the poor outcomes such as substance abuse,” he explains. “This can perpetuate problems down the line.” Looking At Alaska’s High Suicide Rate – Kaysie Ellingson

suicide-2
For over 30 years, I have served in ministry and this is the first time I’ve not worked my own business and a full-time job. Sometimes, I’ve worked two to three jobs. I’m not old enough yet to receive Social Security, but I know that I’m supposed to go to Alaska. Alaska is ranked 3rd in the States for Suicides, 7th for alcoholism and alcohol related deaths, and is on the top of the list for prostitution and drug addicts. My length of stay will be determined once I get settled there with the team of G3 Alaska Ministries.

There are many who feel called to help, but could never go.  I am looking for those who could help me by becoming part of either my prayer team or financial support team.  All contributions are tax-deductable.  Please consider me in your end of the year giving or 2017 budget.

Crisis & Trauma Care…Praying for Louisiana and Emergency Personnel

before-after-denham

It is hard to imagine losing everything you own in just a few minutes.  Many in Louisiana right now are still reeling from the devastation.  Please Pray for Louisiana.  I just received a request to volunteer in Louisiana, however I will be leaving for an assignment in Alaska, August 22nd.

In the meantime pray for the families and responders heading to Louisiana.  Below are some ways you can help if you are in the midst of a crisis and trauma.

Here are 4 methods for healing from post-traumatic stress.

1. Move your body to disperse stress chemicals.  When a trauma occurs, our first reaction is to freeze like a deer in headlights, take flight without thinking or flood with emotions that are out of control and many times do things we would not normally do. We hold our breath and tense our muscles. Meanwhile, our brains are being flooded with stress hormones like adrenaline, cortisol, and histamine.  It’s vitally important to move your body to disperse these chemicals so the trauma doesn’t become frozen into muscle memory. To recover from anxiety and fear related to trauma, gentle stretching or restorative (gentle) yoga can help you to release and recover a sense of inner peace and feelings of safety and security.

2. Stay away from news reports. It’s easy to fall into the trap of obsessively reading or watching news stories, to try to make sense of tragedy. There’s also a belief that news gives you more control, safety, and knowledge of what to expect next. However, studies show that traumatic news stories flood the brain and body with the same amount of stress hormones as if the trauma had occurred to you personally. This can lead to Secondary PTSD, and the symptoms of PTSD (flashbacks, anxiety, worries about safety, feeling unsafe and insecure, addictions, etc.).  Limit your exposure to news stories. If you feel anxious while hearing about news, be sure to engage in stretching exercises to disperse the stress chemicals. This is especially true for the elderly or shut-in.  Please check on them and make certain they aren’t on media overload.

3. Listen to gentle music.  Soothing meditation music lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and soothes us like a lullaby.  Pandora Radio has a gentle music station called Nature, or you can search for music genres like “Spa music,” “Worship music,” or “Nature Sounds” to find soothing background music. I highly recommend playing soothing music at home, at work, and in the car.  Please note:  Sometimes the sound of rain can trigger additional trauma in the cases of flooding.  Please be aware and cautious of this.

4. Spirituality.  When tragedy occurs, it may test your faith. Still, studies show that those who have spiritual or religious beliefs have healthier responses to traumatic events. Believing in God’s protective power, and/or “that everything happens for a reason” helps you to feel peaceful. You retain a sense of safety, instead of believing the world is dangerous and haphazard.  Praying and meditating are instantly effective ways to heal from stress and anxiety.

 

If post-traumatic symptoms continue or interfere with your relationships, job, or other functioning, please seek professional treatment from a trauma-specialist therapist. Please let me know if I can help in any way.  Email me at CinderellaReleased@gmail.com or 24/7 prayer 850-661-6104.

Insecurity “I”s that will incinerate you!

Insecurity

No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I Corinthians 10:13-14

Idolatry is putting anything or anyone before the Lord. It is a subtle form of insecurity. It is easy to try and please others, especially as Christians.  We will tell subtle lies in order not to hurt someone’s feelings, and we may read other’s actions as contrary to our own welfare, and make assumptions.

Both are traps….from the enemy.  The Corinthian church had these same issues.  The enemy will tempt us…. but God, said He has already taken care of this for us in advance!

Whenever we feel these things try to tempt us…. Run!  Insecurity will incinerarte you and God’s plans for you! Run from insecurity…. Run into the security of Jesus!

Blessings,

Inflammation “I”s that will Incinerate You

eye inflammation

I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. Jeremiah 33: 6b (NIV)

The second phase of healing a wound (there are four) is inflammation. Inflammation means to ignite or set on fire. The process is part of our body’s defense system and actually helps to heal a wound or injury. After a wound has occurred (blood is clotting) the small blood vessels change and allow blood (plasma, blood proteins, and white cells) to enter the area around the injury – it swells. This increase in fluids (blood) accompanies or causes pain, Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 11.39.12 AMloss of function, redness and a “hot to the touch” sensation. Discharging pus is a part of this process. We tend to try and control/stop inflammation but it is needed after a wound for healing; if inflammation does not get rid of the problem or continues that is chronic inflammation and can lead to other health issues.

The parallels of physical inflammation to spiritual inflammation are noteworthy. After the initial shock of a wound we will feel pain, possibly stop doing things, and be touchy; these are natural but it is because “life” (blood) is trying to flood back in. We may/should let loose bad stuff (pus) as part of our healing. In this stage if we don’t get rid of “stuff” it will stay around and cause other more serious problems or at least delay our healing.

∞ Lord Jesus, we know wounds will come but thank you for healing. Holy Spirit thank you for taking ALL things and using them to bring us closer to Jesus and the Father. Amen.
