You can’t stop lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano with water, bombs or walls. Here’s why. Read Entire Article

You can't stop lava flow.jpg

There is a lava flow in Hawaii that isn’t stopping. The wind blew an avalanche of rocks into the road today. The Lord said, “The earth is crying out in travail, it is praising a God that can’t be stopped.

God created mankind to praise and worship him. Let your soul and spirit cry out in travail, cry out in praise and overcome the darkness wherever you go – wherever your feet may tread.

Psalm 33

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.

Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.

The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.

In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

God sent His Son, the Holy One of Israel, Yeshua (Jesus) to redeem mankind from their sins and from the evil one. He will deliver those who will follow Him from the darkness and into His marvelous light!

The Lord God says,

“You who are His voice, You who are His people, You who are His followers and disciples, go now into all the earth and declare His salvation, deliverance and healing to those who are lost and broken and it is I who will deliver them!

Don’t let a rock, a mountain, a volcano, a wind, or an earthquake cry out for you!”

And Jesus headed to Jericho with his disciples, and met Zaccheas the tax collector and told a parable about sowing and reaping and the rewards for those who hold back; giving a charge to those servants to

OCCUPY UNTIL I COME! (Luke 19:13)

And as He told the disciples where to get a Colt for him to ride on those who were following him began to cry out in praise.

Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Luke 19:38-42

“We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.” Romans 8:22

As we praise, worship and intercede for the nations the Lord is faithful to inhabit the praises of His people.

We know as trouble and difficulties arise, this is a call for God’s people to stand firm and Occupy until He comes again.

Set My Soul on Fire Lord!

Hoebel 2

Are You Ready for a Double Portion of Fire?

When they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha, “What can I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha answered, “May I receive a double portion of the prophetic spirit that energizes you.” Elijah replied, “That’s a difficult request!

If you see me taken from you, may it be so, but if you don’t, it will not happen.” As they were walking along and talking, suddenly a fiery chariot pulled by fiery horses appeared. They went between Elijah and Elisha, and Elijah went up to heaven in a windstorm. While Elisha was watching, he was crying out, “My father, my father! The chariot and horsemen of Israel!” Then he could no longer see him. He grabbed his clothes and tore them in two.

He picked up Elijah’s cloak, which had fallen off him, and went back and stood on the shore of the Jordan. He took the cloak that had fallen off Elijah, hit the water with it, and said,

“Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” When he hit the water, it divided and Elisha crossed over. 2 Kings 2:9-14

Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain, that I can’t control

(There’s) No place I would rather be, (There’s) No place I would rather be, (There’s) No place I would rather be, But here in Your love, here in Your love (So) Set a fire down in my soul That I can’t contain and I can’t control Cause I want more of You God I want more of You God Kindle that flame Burning deep, deep down Change me, make me new From the inside out. Reagan-united-pursuit-set-fire-soul-lyrics

The chariot of fire came down and whisked Elijah away because of the”walk” that He had with God. He was consumed by the Lord’s love, His all consuming fire… Matthew 10:22-24 says,

And everyone will hate you because of your allegience to me. But those who endure to the end shall be saved. When you are persecuted in one town, flee to the next., I assure you that I, the Son of Man, will return before you have reached all the towns of Israel.The fiery Elijah confronted and exposed idolatry, helping to change the atmosphere where people could freely ad publicly worship God. Elisha then moved in to demonstrate God’s powerful yet caring nature to all those who came to him for help.”

Prophecy during worship: Lifepoint Church, Tallahassee, FL.
There is a great fire coming, coming from the LORD. It will be as the fiery chariots that came down from heaven and scooped up Elijah. It will leave a remnant of passion and glory needed to equip those who are walking in the last days – those who are willing to pick up this mantel, those who are willing to bear my name in the heat of the battle that is coming upon the earth.

This is a battle against the host of hell. My Fire is a refining fire, a purifying fire and I will use those who can bear the fire when it gets hot. These will be those who worship me in spirit and in truth. These will be those who are willing to lay down their idols, lay down their own agendas, lay down their technology for the day is coming when you will not be able to communicate with each other in this manner.

You must be a people of trust, people of honor, silent before me in the storm, so you can hear my voice in the midst of the rumblings and grumblings coming upon the earth.
You must be willing to lay down your earthly keys in order to pick up your heavenly keys.

These are the keys to the Kingdom.

DADDY, JESUS AND COFFEE

IMG_7191
Baggs Fruit & Produce 2017 Established 1955

Daddy, Jesus and Coffee – Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today May 5th – 2018

My dad would have been 96 today.  It seems like an eternity since I moved to help my younger brother Keith take care of him in 2006.

Baggs Fruit and Produce Market was his life. He and my mom established it July 4th weekend 1955 and it is still in operation. I once asked my dad if he ever minded going to work, (this was when he was 89)? He simply said, “I look forward to waking up every morning and having a place to go that is mine and that I love!” He truly loved the produce market and he loved to watch things grow. He could look at a baby sprout in the field with bad eyesight and tell you what the crop was. He was a great farmer, like his daddy ~12th generation.

It has been six years since his 90th birthday and his passing along. I still miss my daddy. I miss fixing him breakfast and listening to his comforting laugh and silly jokes and the way one eyebrow would raise when he was pulling my leg about something or telling a story that he knew was getting my undivided attention. This was how my daddy showed he cared, telling stories and getting the laughs. I loved the tall tales!  Now, my son Maverick and his son Jonah have this same trait.  The Lord is so good! Below is a story about a day with my dad. I call it Daddy, Jesus and Coffee.

This is a Repost from May 20, 2012

This morning (May 20, 2012) my daddy went to his heavenly home.
He is finally at peace, running, jumping and probably drinking coffee with Jesus!The last few years have been quite a struggle for him. He didn’t like being bedridden and he was tired of being sick and tired. The last time I prayed with him, he said he felt like a “zombie.”  My dad could describe his feelings in one word or one sentence matter of fact statements.  Usually the humor expressed subtly would hit you a few hours later, giving you a fresh appreciation of his wisdom.My daddy was one of the hardest workers I’ve ever known.  Over the past three years, he had gone from getting up early, going to work seven days a week 364 days a year (he always took off Christmas), to being barely able to get out of bed.

Only after extreme doses of chemo therapy and radiation, at the ripe old age of 87, he lost his strength. His mind remained “sharp as a tack” and like I said earlier, he always had a quick wit about him…even to the very end of his life here on earth.

One of his favorite sayings was, “I don’t care which way the wind blows as long as I get a little breeze.” His last birthday was May 6th and he was 90 years old, now he is in eternity. The Lord wants us to honor our parents so we can live a long life.  He honored his daddy who lived to be 96!

I was blessed to have had my daddy and the stories he shared with me over the years. I will miss him. Below is a story I wrote a few years ago, called The Coffee Cup.

96ca7-the2bcoffee2bcup

The Coffee Cup
Dear Seed Sower Deb,

You asked about my dad. This morning I’m home with him. His heart is getting weaker and weaker but he is still able to crack a joke. I always make coffee when he stays home and this morning I took him another cup. Usually I take him a small delicate cup, but this one was heavier. He needs the exercise!

Of course he lays down and drinks his coffee because he is weak. I poured him a refill and he said, “This is the height of laziness.” (He meant, laying in bed drinking coffee.)

He keeps asking me if his brain is ok? He’s worried about becoming demented. I assure him he’s still all there. This has been a serious learning experience being at home with my dad who is 87. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve been blessed to be loved alot.

He is always thankful for every little thing and rarely complains. One thing I’ve noticed is that he is able to discern whenever he is anxious about something. He knows and understands whether or not something is a matter that you should get upset about.

He says, “my nerves are bad, I get upset over something I shouldn’t get upset over.”

This reminded me of Phil 4:6 “Be careful (anxious)for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

For those of you out there with older parents…appreciate their wisdom….and love their life….that all may go well with you and you will live a long life. For more about his produce market he started in 1955 check out

Discerning of Spirits by Smith Wigglesworth & The National Day of Prayer

If you seek nothing

The National Day of Prayer – The First Thursday in May

Today, now more than ever we need to join together in one accord to lift up our nation, The United States of America.

On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer. The National Prayer Committee was formed in the United States in 1972.

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:2-3

In order for God to move on our behalf it is important to stay pure and in a position of intercession and prayer for our nation, our families and communities, it is important to remain humble, patient and bear one another in peace and be in unity with one another.  As Christians we are positioned to take authority over principalities, powers and rulers in high places.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Christians have been ignorant of their position in Christ and have allowed disunity, disagreements, and division in our churches, families, workplaces, schools, communities, cities, states and ultimately our nation and throughout the world.

Lord, I repent, and ask that you will help me to do my part to bring unity and love to those within my influence. I pray you will help me bring healing, love, deliverance, salvation and healing to those whom I come in contact with.

Below is an article written by Smith Wigglesworth on The Discerning of Spirits, a gift that we all need in this hour.

The Discerning of Spirits – Smith Wigglesworth

“To another discerning of spirits” (1 Cor. 12:10). There is a vast difference between natural discernment and spiritual. When it comes to natural discernment you will find many people loaded with it, and they can see so many faults in others. To such the words of Christ in the sixth chapter of Luke surely apply,

“Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”

If you want to manifest natural discernment, focus the same on yourself for at least twelve months and you will see so many faults in yourself that you will never want to fuss about the faults of another. In the sixth of Isaiah we read of the prophet being in the presence of God and he found that even his lips were unclean and everything was unclean. But praise God, there is the same live coal for us today, the baptism of fire, the perfecting of the heart, the purifying of the mind, the regeneration of the spirit. How important it is that the fire of God shall touch our tongues. In 1 John 4:1 we are told,

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God.” We are further told, “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” From time to time as I have seen a person under the power of evil, or having a fit, I have said to the power of evil, or Satanic force that is within the possessed person, “Did Jesus Christ come in the flesh?” and straightway they have answered, “No.” They either say, “No,” or hold their tongues, refusing altogether to acknowledge that the Lord Jesus Christ came in the flesh. It is then, remembering that further statement of John’s, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world,” that you can in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ deal with the evil powers and command them to come out. We as Pentecostal people must know the tactics of the evil one and must be able to displace and dislodge him from his position.

I was preaching in Doncaster, England, at one time on the line of faith and a number of people were delivered. There was a man present who was greatly interested and moved by what he saw. He was suffering himself with a stiff knee and had yards and yards of flannel wound around it. After he got home he said to his wife, “I have taken in Wigglesworth’s message and now I am going to act on it and get deliverance. Wife, I want you to be the audience.” He took hold of his knee and said, “Come out, you devil, in the name of Jesus.” Then he said, “It is all right, wife.” He took the yards and yards of flannel off and found he was all right without the bandage. The next night he went to the little Primitive Methodist Church where he worshiped. There were a lot of young people who were in bad plight there and Jack had a tremendous business delivering his friends through the name of Jesus. He had been given to see that a great many ills to which flesh is heir are nothing else but the operation of the enemy, but his faith had risen and he saw that in the name of Jesus there was a power that was more than a match for the enemy.

I arrived one night at Gottenberg in Sweden and was asked to hold a meeting there. In the midst of the meeting a man fell full length in the doorway. The evil spirit drew him down, manifesting itself and disturbing the whole meeting. I rushed to the door and laid hold of this man and cried out to the evil spirit within him, “Come out, you devil! In the name of Jesus we cast you out as an evil spirit.” I lifted him up and said, “Stand on your feet and walk in the name of Jesus.” I don’t know whether anybody in the meeting understood me except the interpreter, but the devils knew what I said. I talked in English but these devils in Sweden cleared out. A similar thing happened in Christiania.

The devil will endeavor to fascinate through the eyes and through the mind. At one time there was brought to me a beautiful young woman who had been fascinated with some preacher, and just because he had not given her satisfaction on the line of courtship and marriage, the devil took advantage and made her fanatical and mad. They brought her 250 miles in that condition. She had previously received the Baptism in the Spirit. You ask, “Is there any place for the enemy in one that has been baptized in the Holy Ghost?” Our only safety is in going on with God and in constantly being filled with the Holy Ghost. You must not forget Demas. He must have been baptized with the Holy Ghost for he appears to have been a right-hand worker with Paul, but the enemy got him to the place where he loved this present world and he dropped off. When they brought this young woman to me the evil power was immediately discerned and immediately I cast the thing out in the name of Jesus. It was a great joy to present her before all the people in her right mind again.

There is a life of perfect deliverance, and this is where God wants you to be. If I find my peace is disturbed on any line, I know it is the enemy who is trying to work. How do I know this? Because the Lord has promised to keep your mind in perfect peace when it is stayed on Him.

Paul tells us to present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service; the Holy Spirit breathes through him, “And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” He further tells us in Phil. 4, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things.” As we think about that which is pure, we become pure. As we think about that which is holy, w e become holy. And as we think about our Lord Jesus Christ, we become like Him. We are changed into the likeness of the object on which our gaze is, fixed.

To discern spirits we must dwell with Him who is holy, and He will give the revelation and unveil the mask of Satanic power on all lines. In Australia I went to one place where there were disrupted and broken homes. The people were so deluded by the evil power of Satan that men had left their wives, and wives had left their husbands, and had gotten into spiritual affinity with one another. That is the devil ! May God deliver us from such evils in these days. There is no one better than the companion God has given you. I have seen so many broken hearts and so many homes that have been wrecked. We need a real revelation of these evil seducing spirits which come in and fascinate by the eye and destroy lives, and bring the work of God into disrepute. But there is always flesh behind it. It is never clean; it is unholy, impure, Satanic, devilish, and hell is behind it. If the enemy comes in to tempt you on any line like this, I beseech you to look instantly to the Lord Jesus. He can deliver you from any such Satanic power. You must be separated on all lines if you are going to have faith.

The Holy Ghost will give us this gift of discerning of spirits if we desire it so that we may perceive by revelation this evil power which comes in to destroy. We can reach out and get this unction of the Spirit that will reveal these things unto us.

You will have people come to meetings who are spiritists. You must be able to deal with spiritist conditions. You can so deal with them that they will not have any power in the meetings. If you ever have Theosophists or Christian Scientists, you must be able to discern them and settle them. Never play with them; always clear them out. They are better with their own company always, unless they are willing to be delivered from the delusion they are in. Remember the warning of the Lord Jesus, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.”

Before Satan can bring his evil spirits there has to be an open door. Hear what the Scriptures say

“That wicked one toucheth him not” (1 John 5:18).

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul” (Psa. 121:7). How does Satan get an opening? When the saint ceases to seek after holiness, purity, righteousness, truth; when he ceases to pray, stops reading the Word and gives way to carnal appetites, then it is that Satan comes. So often sickness comes as a result of disobedience. David said,

“Before I was afflicted, I went astray.” Seek the Lord and He will sanctify every thought, every act, till your whole being is ablaze with holy purity and your one desire will be for Him who has created you in holiness. Oh, this holiness! Can we be made pure? We can. Every inbred sin must go. God can cleanse away every evil thought. Can we have a hatred for sin and a love for righteousness? Yes, God will create within thee a pure heart. He will take away the stony heart out of the flesh. He will sprinkle thee with clean water and thou shalt be cleansed from all thy filthiness. When will He do it? When you seek Him for such inward purity.

Lydie – A Cinderella Released from the Congo

Lydie.JPG

Lydie was on my plane that was heading back from Kunming, China and we had a layover in Shanghai. I noticed her because of her beautiful and huge smile! After sitting next to her while waiting for our flight to Los Angeles I found out she and her family were refugees who escaped the Congo over 25 years ago. I thought about having to leave your homeland and move and live in a foreign country, starting over with nothing and how difficult this must be. Yet, Lydie had nothing but wonderful things to share and how God has blessed her and her family.

Even though she was a young girl when she fled, she still remembers this time and in spite of the trauma and having to flee her country has such a sweet spirit. She is thankful to be in America with her family. Many others during this time of war in her homeland weren’t as fortunate. Over 5.4 million people were killed in this conflict.

She and her husband pastor a church in Glendale Arizona and her mother, father and siblings all live there. Lydie works full-time and also owns a small boutique called Three D’s Discount (named after her three girls whose names all start with D!) and helps her husband pastor their church.

Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. It was amazing how the Lord brought so many special people into my life during my trip to Asia in 2018.

Masks Interrupted

Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last; and great fear came over all who heard of it. Acts 1:4b-5

In my travels and experience I am seeing how God is exposing truth in my life and in the lives of others. He does not want us to put on masks of pride, arrogance, false humility or other masks that hide the person He desires for us to “be” or become.

The Lord is tearing down and interrupting these masks and wants us to use our position and the sphere of influence which has been given freely to us; only by and through His Power, Grace and Mercy for His Kingdom purposes.

Let us pray and give thanks according to Ephesians 1:15-22
Open the eyes of my heart Lord, and interrupt the masks!
15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

A Birthday Prayer – You Are His Sheep

white picket fence
April 26th, 2018 was my 63rd birthday and I thank the Lord for giving me life, allowing me to grow up in Sanford, Florida and have the abundance of love and joy in my life that I’ve received from so many of you who have already sent me birthday wishes.
I have two awesome brothers and three sister in loves with three nieces and one nephew. I love you Adrienne Baggs, Dena Curtin, Maretta Baggs & Clint Baggs
It was in Sanford that I first climbed an orange tree in my backyard on 20th street, came to know Jesus as my Savior and a loving God. I dreamed of having a house with a white picket fence and being a wife, mother and grandmother.

I don’t have the white picket fence or the loving husband I dreamed about as a little girl, but the truth is I have so very much more! I have four wonderful sons, two daughter in loves that I couldn’t be prouder of and four wonderful grans! Gary Hoenig, Angel, Emily, JJ, Christopher Hoenig, Derrick Colt Hoenig, Maverick Hoenig, Amy Hoenig, Jonah, & Hudson! Can I tell you who could ask for more? Well I know I don’t deserve it, but I have other sons and daughters the Lord has given me along the way. I spend extra time on my knees for you Brenton Hagge!

 

The Missionary Heart
I dreamed of becoming a missionary, actually a nun when I got saved at the age of 12. After a brief time of losing my mind in high school, the Lord stepped in and rescued me as He has kept me from so much, so many times and has blessed me with friends and family all over the world. I’m so thankful that I’ve been blessed with this time here and I wish I could see and tell each of you that come to my heart and mind so many times… I have been blessed with so many memories, joy, laughter, and share in each of your sorrows, pain and sufferings.
Because I have been given the free gift of eternal life I will be able to spend it with those of you who know and love Jesus! I’m asking the serious question of, Do you know Him, Jesus, the Savior of the World? None of us are promised another day on this planet, but I’m asking you to ask yourself if you died today, where would you spend eternity? I hope it is with Jesus, so we can spend time together.

It doesn’t matter where you are, what you have done, or even what you think about yourself or what others think about you! All you have to do is humble yourself, and ask for God to forgive your sins (all of us are sinners – we can’t help our fallen nature), accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, believe really that He rose from the dead and then ask God to help you to receive the precious gift of grace (Jesus as your way to eternity).

Please don’t stop there. Ask the Lord to refine you, fill you with His Spirit, and help you read and know His voice in order to be able to follow Him. Read John Chapter 10 over and over again until you believe you are one of His precious sheep. Read Ephesians 1 until you know the authority and power you have as His child.

This is my 63rd Birthday prayer!
Til the whole world knows Jesus I will be,

Free Love vs. Jesus Love

love-zipporah.png

I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s where there were two types of love being expressed in our country:

1) Free love and
2) then unconditional Jesus’ love.

The Jesus movement was an Evangelical Christian movement beginning on the West Coast of the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s and spreading primarily throughout North America, Europe, and Central America, before subsiding by the late 1980s.

I accepted Jesus in 1967 at the age of 12 in a Christian Missionary Alliance church. I had dreams of becoming a missionary, wanted to end prejudice, slavery and the arpartheid.

My plan was to go to Tocoa Falls Bible College and Seminary. I believe this was God’s plan.  I was fortunate to have really good pastors and teachers and I devoured the Bible throughout Junior High and most of High School. I had parts of Revelation memorized and could tell you every cult and occult company and celebrity that existed at the time. I was labeled a Jesus Freak.

The summer of my junior year, I switched from Jesus Love to the Free Love camp, the country western version. As the saying goes sin had it’s pleasure for a season. Today 50 years after first accepting Christ, I still grieve this decision. Not only has it cost me a lot of pain, it has cost many others pain because of my poor witness. I also regret the time that was lost in being able to share with others the joy that only salvation can bring to a hurting soul.

The Good News is that God’s plan never changed. His plan for each and everyone of us is for good and not for evil. He didn’t give up on me because I made a stupid choice. He was there waiting for me to return just like the Father was waiting for his prodical son to come home. Like me, the prodical took his inheritence and squandered it on the “Free Love” life. What I’ve come to realize is this is Satan’s plan. He wants us to fall, and believe we can never return home. I believe that many are caught in this same lie. But I’ve learned once you choose Jesus Christ, He will pursue you throughout forever.  He will allow you to live in your mess until you are ready to come home.

This is Satan’s plan. He wants us to fall, and he also wants us to believe we can never return home. I believe that many today are caught in this same trap. It is a lie. God is always waiting and wanting us to be in relationship with Him. He will allow you to live in your mess until you are ready to come home.

I can tell you my life radically changed after my third son was born. I became discontent with my lifestyle. I wanted joy back, and God used him to show me what unconditional love was all about. He used this particular son to remind me that God loved more, than I could ever imagine. This put a deep desire and longing to return to the LORD.

I wanted to change to be a good mother but I was bound in sin and was powerless to deliver myself.  Then one day He nearly died as a result of my sin. I can’t tell you God’s voice was literally audible, but it was so soft, but supernaturally powerful. When He spoke to me that day His words literally shook the core of my soul. He said, “Marlene, It’s time,” my knees buckled as if I had been hit in the back of my legs with a baseball bat. I knew that my time of running was over. I wanted to change and begged God to let my son live. I tried bargaining with God and He immediately let me know, that I didn’t have anything to bargain with. Jesus had already paid the price for all of my sins, past, present and future. All he wanted was my love and He would supply the rest. God removed a lot of weight that day, healed my son and my life has been forever changed.

When I heard these words my knees buckled as if I had been hit in the back of my legs with a baseball bat. My life flashed before my eyes, I couldn’t get to my son who had turned blue, but inside I knew that my time of running was over. In my spirit I knew I had a choice that day… Free Love or Jesus’ Love.

I wanted to change and begged God to let my son live and I then trying to take control of the situation I began bargaining with God. He immediately let me know, that I didn’t have anything to bargain with. The Holy fear that I felt wasn’t a terror, it was a respect and realization that Jesus had already paid the price for all of my sins, past, present and future. How dare I minimize the sacrifice. It was either accept His love, total forgiveness and a wiping away of every sin, being baptized anew in Jesus’ love.

All he wanted was my love and He would, could and did supply the rest. God removed a lot of weight that day, healed my son and my life has been forever changed.

I wish I could say everything is so perfect everyday and I never struggle or I’ve never sinned or been deceived by Satan. In the scripture above Jesus is warning the ones He trained while He was still on the earth that we need to be wise, know what we believe because there were going to be tough times ahead. Like the brothers and sisters who have gone before us, being a sold out, committed follower and disciple of Jesus Christ is not going to be easy.

Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 AMP

A Mother’s Touch – A Mother’s Day Story

Hoebel 2

The following is an excerpt from a biography on Hudson Taylor – James Hudson Taylor was a British Protestant Christian missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission. Taylor spent 51 years in China.

Hudson Taylor wrote about his mom when she met him at his ship to sail away…in 1854. I call it:

A mothers touch…

“My beloved, now sainted, mother, had come to see me off from Liverpool. Never shall I forget that day, nor how she Wentworth me into the little cabin that was to be my home for nearly six long months. With a mother’s loving hand she smoothed the little bed. She sat by myside, and joined me in the last hymn that we should sing together before the long parting. We knelt down, abd she prayed – the last mother’s prayer I was to hear before starting for China. Then notice was given that we must separate, and we had to say good-by, never expecting to see each other on earth again.

For my sake she restrained her feelings as much as possible. We parted; and she went on shore, giving me her blessing; I stood alone on deck, and she followed the ship as we moved toward the dock gates. As we passed through the gates, and the separation-really began, I can never forget the cry of anguish stung from my mother’s heart. It went through me like a knife. I never knew do fully, until then, daft “God so loved the world” meant. And I am quite sure that my precious mother learned more of the love of God to the perishing in that hour than in all her lifetime before.

Oh, how itjust grieve the heart of God when He sees His children indifferent to the needs of that wide world for which His beloved, His only begotten Son, died!”
~ J Hudson Taylor

There have been many times in my life when I’ve had to leave my sons and I didn’t know if I would ever see them again. The scripture that the Lord would bring to my mind may be found in the book of Isaiah.

All your sons will be taught by the Lord,
    and great will be their peace.
Isaiah 54:13

When we have the assurance of God that our children will be taken care of the Lord, we can rest carefully and confidently in Him.

Your Table is Prepared in Your Enemies Presence

Your Table Is Prepared in the Presence of Your Enemies
Prophetic Word Given – Women’s Conference August 1993 – Freedom Church, Tallahassee, Florida

I had a vision a couple of years ago on the way to work one morning. It was so intense that I had to pull my car off the road. I had heard a teaching on Psalm 23 the night before. This particular morning verses 4-5 came to me: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for though art with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me.

This was the vision:

The Rod of Comfort

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, Jim Caviezel, 2004, (c) Newmarket/courtesy Everett Collection

The Rod of Comfort – Holy Spirit – Holy Friday

I will fear no evil for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.”

Imagine that you are in a battle not for just your self, but for all of mankind. Also imagine that you love everyone in the world as if they are your own flesh and blood. There is such a passion and burden for your mission to be accomplished that no physical, emotional or spiritual force can rattle your determination. Your ability and talent are irrelevant. In fact, it isn’t even your will that is operating; it is the will and strength of God, and you know it.

You also realize that your mission will cause you the deepest agony that you could ever imagine or have ever experienced ~ EVER!

You will experience physically, mentally, and emotionally the uncontrollable rage and anger of Satan himself along with his staff who are totally determined that your mission will be a failure. You will be forced to hear every lie to try and persuade you that you are not doing God’s will and this staff of evil will try to cause you to give up and into the chaos of confusion.

In addition, you know there is a plot for your assassination and a traitor in your midst.

Airplane Mode, Auto Crashes & Asia Ahead!

One cold, dark North Carolina morning, I walked out side with my last two suitcases after saying goodbye to my sweet hostess. I started the engine and the temperature gage read 30 degrees Fahrenheit. My windows were caked with ice. I realized I should have come out earlier and started the car, but since it wasn’t an extreme cold,  I sat and waited for the car to warm up. I had left my headlights off, so my car could expend all of it’s energy on warming up, pumping the fluids and heat to defrost the front and rear windows.

Foggy-Windscreen

After about five minutes and sitting in the dark I looked over at my pillow which was sitting on the passengers seat and thought, “I could have spent another half hour  in a nice warm bed. Just then the front porch light went off leaving me in complete darkness. I turned on my lights so the dash lights would come on. and then a couple of minutes later I see this little petite shadow come over to my window, so I rolled it down and there was my hostess checking on me.

I quickly told her,

“I’m ok, I’m just letting my car warm up.”

She hurried back inside and I thought, “I could have stayed inside, chatted and had a cup of coffee, oh well live and learn.”

I knew she and her husband had a very busy day ahead and they had just come back from a really long and exhausting trip in Asia.  By the end of the month, I would be on that same 8,553 mile journey across the world to Asia. The Lord opened up a miracle opportunity to travel, be with family, and be on “assignment with Him”. My God adventures are always full of love, joy, surprises, and usually some crisis and trauma care. One thing is for certain, it will always include sharing the “good news” and searching for God’s treasures. It could be on the way, on the way back, or while I am there, or all three!

I’m certainly excited but also a little nervous! Being a crisis and trauma care missionary is very rewarding, but sometimes challenging and even scary!  The Lord knows me very well and one of the things I love the most is watching God move miraculously in the midst of crisis and trouble. He is our Savior, Deliverer and Healer. Sometimes I forget the Lord is right there with me even when I don’t see, feel or hear Him. When someone is in crisis, this is when they need reassurance the Lord is on the way to their emergency!

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Matthew 14:22-33

As I was thinking about traveling alone, and realizing the Lord is always with me, I looked up and the ice had melted from my windshield.

So, off I went … on my 9 – 10 hour 500 mile drive back to Florida!  I whipped into McDonalds and got me a Senior coffee with two creams. Ahh Nice! Now I was really ready!

Just before I pulled out of the drive-thru I decided to ask Siri for directions.  The night before I had been doing some experimenting on my phone for my upcoming flight to Asia. I had turned off my GPS tracker and forgotten to turn it back on. I’m really not a great multi-tasker anymore and it was still dark; so I pulled over on the side of the road, turned my GPS on, plug in directions, and enjoy a sip of coffee.

Senior Coffee

Driving down the winding North Carolina road and I began to thank the Lord for the trip, for my safety, and for everyone else He brought to mind.  It wasn’t long before I began to think about the different things we put our faith in. The conversation went something like this;

“I sure do hope that people can see better in the dark while driving than I can, and that the Lord will help me see clearly.

I hope my tires last the next 500 miles and beyond for the next few months like the guy at the tire store said they would.

Lord please watch over my tires, and don’t let me have any blow outs or cause anyone any harm.

Help the other person, like me, drive defensively and not take any wild chances!

You know God, the guy said to be very careful in the rain, ice and it’s pretty dark and foggy!”

“Now, I’m really praying and repenting Lord, maybe I should have stayed in bed at least until the sun came out and dried up all the ice. Lord, please help me. Plus, I’m thinking about others like me whose vision, reaction time, etc. isn’t what it used to be!”

dense fog

By this time I’m in an area where I’ve switched interstates and I have to stop for an ambulance and a police car. They are both going in opposite directions to two different accident scenes.  For years the Lord has had me intercede and pray for emergency responders, fire and police men, as well as the victims in the accidents.  Even when my boys were little, and we would be late or taken on an alternate route, we would always arrive upon the scene and begin to intercede and pray for the victims and their families. Today was no different.  Then came a sudden change in my route.

My GPS told me to get off the interstate and take an alternate route. A couple of minutes later, “Accident Ahead, You are on the fastest route.” So, obediently I followed the directions and was riding along in bumper to bumper traffic.  Evidently several people had been rerouted!  Another 10 minutes later, again the GPS said, “Accident Ahead, You are on the fastest route.” In another 10 minutes the GPS routed me back onto the interstate and it was smooth sailing until I got on the interstate and there was a huge fog cloud blocking everyone’s vision.  In the distance all you could see was a couple of car lengths ahead. But, you could see the car in front of you pretty clearly.

fog 3

The thought entered my mind. Now I’m having to trust the guy or gal in front of me and they are trusting the one in front of them. Lord help me as I looked over for the third time that morning at my pillow.

fog 2

In about thirty minutes the fog lifted and the letters to the word FOG reminded me of the Favor Of God.  God promises His children favor.  Even though we might sometimes be in the middle of the crisis or a fog, we can always depend and know that God is with us even through the trials and traumas of life.

I began to pray again for those who were in the accidents this morning and pray they would have the peace, comfort and favor of God on and in their lives.

Just as the Lord helped me through the most stressful part of my morning driving in hazardous conditions, with limited and dimmed vision and reflexes, I began to realize the trip to Asia that would be coming up very soon and the traveling alone part, through unfamliar territories would be much better if I was praying for those like myself who might be feeling apprehensive, fearful and jet lagged.

airplane mode

After a few hours driving and talking with the Lord, I pulled over to get gas and a bite to eat.  Then I realized I had been driving on Airplane Mode.  I had been playing with my phone the night before and I had left the mode turned on. No wonder my phone had been so quiet!  I turned it on and several messages had come in!

One from Crisis Response International Intercessors, another from Florida Abolitionist and a prayer request for a rescued sex-trafficking victim, and a special note from a friend who said my email about getting your 2nd wind had come just in time!

God is so faithful. I knew God was speaking to me about the imperfect and traumatized world we live in. It is full of crisis. What God wants is for it to be full of Christ. When we exchange our lives for Christ’s then He exchanges the crisis and trauma for a renewed life, and gives us the ability to walk by faith and not by sight!

Now I could look forward to the trip to Asia and the many wonderful divine appointments God has already ordained before my feet will ever hit the ground there!

Please keep this trip and my family, friends and others who are already there and the many believers who risk their very lives daily in countries where Christians are persecuted.

Pursuing Evil Pleasures

Maska
It is evident that serious times are upon us. Crisis, trauma, sickness & disease are raging and Hell is viciously pursuing the entire world at an accelerated pace.

God’s people are being summoned to pursue His avenues for answers, and not their own.

“So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.
Acts 5:11

A Word from the Lord came to me and now to you:

When others OBSERVE the changes in our spiritual lives—they will readily conform.

Now, especially now, we don’t have precious time to stand idly unfocused.

No time for distractions and delays in the realm of the spirit.

Seek the face of God for direction in uniting with those of kindred spirit. If we remain connected only to our “old relationships” – even in ministry, we will tend not to advance within this new dimension.

Yes, all things have become new, but it’s up to us to erect a new monument, still rooted in the former principles, however implementing amended tactics and operating by modified procedures.

Your challenge for today is to aggressively pursue new avenues in which to accomplish your God given dreams and aspirations.

Now is the time for YOU to take the limits off of God; and permit Him to allow you, to make the impact in the realm of the spirit for which you were created.
~ Pastor Laban Okusi – Eldoret Kenya

God has a plan for your life!

 

Dark_and_dismal_valley
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.

 

Your Table Is Prepared in the Presence of Your Enemies
God has a plan for your life!


I had a vision in 1991 on the way to work on a Thursday morning. It was so intense that I had to pull my car off the road. I had heard a teaching on Psalm 23 the night before. Then during a time of praise and worship two years later and I felt led to share this to the women at the conference.

 


“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for though art with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me.

8c46b-georgeinness-thevalleyoftheshadowofdeath

I saw two mountains, one on the left and the other on the right. The left one represented fear and the right one doubt. I could hear the voice of Jesus calling me, urging me on as I was walking through this very dark and scary place. It was so dark that I couldn’t see a anything and there were no stars in the sky. I knew I couldn’t turn back. As I kept walking very slowly so as to not fall, I could hear the voice of Jesus pleading with me, saying, “PRESS IN! PRESS IN!”

sevenstars
The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. Revelation 1:14

 

Then my eyes focused and ahead I could see a very dim light and as I drew closer it got exceedingly bright. Then, suddenly I saw Him… exactly as He is described in Revelation 1:14. His hair was white as snow, His eyes were on fire and His feet were shining like brass. He was wearing a white robe and He was calling me with a voice that brought peace to the scary valley, and the courage to walk on.

He said, “My daughter, Come in, Come In, PRESS IN!  The fear was there, the doubt was there, but I am here, PRESS IN!” 

Then suddenly as I was sharing this word to the group of women at the conference, a supernatural and great power which felt like an explosion rose up inside my body.

The Lord said, “I have set before you; My table, it is prepared!”

As I looked there was a banquet table set between those mountains or enemies of fear and doubt. In the middle was also a beautifully engraved golden lamp.  It was bright, and burning. It lit up the entire valley with a soft glow. On each side of the table was an olive tree. (A branch was coming out of the two olive trees feeding the lamp with pure olive oil.)

 

Zecharaiah the Lampstand and the olive trees
Zechariah 4:1-14 Read More About This

 

I said, “Lord what are you trying to show me?”

I learned later – how the olive trees were used in building the tabernacle and the pure olive oil was used in the lamp in the most Holy Place.  It represented the presence of God. The priests kept the temple lamps continually burning.

Jesus then said, “This is what my anointing will do, this is what my fire will do (keep us burning continually) “Just PRESS IN TO ME – keep your eyes on ME, Don’t look to the left, don’t look to the right, but PRESS IN! PRESS IN!

At that time all I could see were the olive trees, the lamp and the table and the instruments that the priests used for sacrifices to the Lord, this represented the old way to God’s presence.  Before this vision I had never seen, read or knew about any of these things.  The Lord showed me in His Word the filigree on the lamps and the candle stands and He said,

golden-lampstand-image_9123_960_653

“I have a plan for you my child.  I have a pattern that I have designed for you like I gave to Moses and Aaron. I gave them every intricate part, the design, the knops, the candlesticks.  I gave them instructions for every part of it.  It was a blueprint for them to follow. You need to be strong in Me and I will show you the path to walk.  I will give you the road to follow.  But don’t look to the left, don’t look to the right.”

(Then today at the conference as I was praising and worshipping the Lord)
Lords-Supper-Church-Stock-Photos-
I saw this table again. It was still sitting in the valley of the shadow of death and was still laid before me in the presence of my enemies and the mountains of fear and doubt were still there. But, they no longer held the power they once did, and the valley was no longer dark and scary. Jesus had broken their power.

Then, I was immediately standing at the table looking for my place at the table. There were many chairs at the table, and they went on forever and forever.
Place Setting

The first time all I saw on the table it was set with only the lamp and the priestly instruments. But today, The Lord showed me very beautiful and fine china plates set before the chairs with individual place settings. The table was prepared with the china, cutlery, and everything needed to dine.

It was a table in-waiting longing for each of us to come.  Each place setting was different.

The Lord spoke to my spirit, You’ve been broken and I’ve allowed it, preparing you for this day; not to destroy you but to refine you.”  A clay pot, when it breaks, it breaks into large pieces.  A clay pot is not as refined as “fine china.” What do you make fine china with? You make it with fine sand. How do you get fine sand? It is broken down from rocks over time, by the weather, the rains, crushing and pounding upon it until it is made into a fine powder. “

Then, The Lord said, “I am preparing you as a vessel of honor, glory and power.  And you will move by My Spirit the more I break you. The finer the powder the finer the china that will be laid in the presence ofyour enemies.  And when I see you on that feast day, you will be seated as my vessels of power, honor and glory at that table.”

He says, “I will have that plate set and it will be fashioned into the pattern I have designed for you.”

“Each one of us has our own unique pattern.  One day we will all look down into that plate which will be set in the presence of our enemies and we will see a reflection when we look down at the place setting on that table.


“We will look down and see the reflection of Jesus in us and we will see Him as He truly really is!” 

Jesus has a pattern and a plan for your life.  He has also set and prepared a place for you at His table. Won’t you join Him?

Addictions, trauma, and tragedy are no stranger to me but Jesus has always been my fortress and strong tower.

The LORD has been merciful and delivered me from many addictions, crisis and trauma. He helped me raise two of my sons as a single mother and has since restored me to all four of my sons. Jesus has literally turned many of my enemies into believers and friends. My life has been a Cinderella story and is one of many great release, recovery, redemption and restoration. The Lord delivered me from the power of sin and death, set my feet on high places, and I find great joy in helping others find salvation, healing and true freedom in Jesus!

Claressa ~ A very fruitful woman!

 

Claressa Now
Claressa with her two children 2017

 

Story and Testimony written with Clarissa’s permission

I first met Claressa while I was working as the manager of a shelter for homeless women. She came seeking a place to live and to get back on her feet.  She had two little children but they were with her sister. In our interview she didn’t tell me why.

Like myself, and so many others I’ve come to know, counsel and love over the years, the world was not her friend, it never would be, and thinking it can be is foolish. There is a god of this world and he is our enemy. He hates God, and he hates God’s children. Like in the story of the Good Samaritan, Claressa had been robbed, beaten and left on the side of the road for dead. The enemy counted Claressa out.

The human spirit can endure in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?
 Proverbs 18:14

I remember her like she was a frightened little child who had just fallen off her trike and was still in shock. Of course she felt to blame because she was riding where she probably knew she shouldn’t be riding, but after all what other option does a woman of her background do in her situation? Here she was, homeless, childless, husbandless and hopeless (well not quite totally hopeless).

During the course of our conversation, she never cast blame on anyone else for her current homeless  and dark situation. She claimed, “It was all her fault she should have done better. I’m trying to trust the Lord! I just don’t understand why He isn’t helping me. All I want is my children back and I will do anything to make that happen.”

It wasn’t until later when we were helping build her case for court that she mentioned she was the only one employed with a baby, a son who was paralyzed from the waist down, caring for an abusive brain injured husband, walking to work, dropping off her baby girl to daycare every day, cooking, cleaning and attending church regularly. It is obvious then and it is even more obvious now, Claressa was suffering from fatigue, burn-out and most likely PTSD and Complex Stress disorder. She was also spiritually abused.

To make matters worse her husband’s family who were also her spiritual leaders; had given her ill advice regarding the care of both her handicapped husband and son which ultimately made matters worse on her. Until you here the rest of the story, it is hard to imagine how any good could come out of this!

That first day she was trying to convince me she was worthy of a place in our home. When Claressa gets nervous she has a similar habit much like my self. I try to convince people I’m worthy of their love when in fact, that is or never will be the case. People are flawed, read the story of the Good Samaritan. Yet, I understood her brokenness and shattered heart. She didn’t need anything other than a place where God could touch her, and tell her how special she was, and that “she was worthy… worthy enough to die for.” This is how Jesus feels about us all!

I recognized her need for someone to “listen” and “hear” the desires of her heart, “To love God, serve others and be a part of a community that would love and respect her for who she really was.” One of the main issues as with many of the men and women I counsel, was Claressa’s need to recognize her identity in Christ.” After our meeting I was determined that God had called me to respect Claressa and help her no matter what it cost me.

Below is a portion of Claressa’s testimony; one I’m proud to be part of…

November 5, 2007 changed my life forever trusting God was absolute. I called my mom that morning and told her I loved her. That was the last time I ever talked to her!

I was at work and I felt disturbed all day. I received a call from a State Trooper. I met them downstairs I saw my sister and I was quite shocked. The trooper gently but right away said our mom was dead from a car accident. We cried hysterically but the Holy Ghost gave me utterance and I prayed in the Spirit!

The Holy Spirit comforted and calmed me down. God said you have to trust me!
I stopped crying and then told my sister and she pushed me away. People hugged us. This particular guy hugged me and he too felt the Holy Ghost. They said my son and dad were in the hospital.They were in critical condition, but steady. I saw my dad on blood stained the sheets by his broken legs. He was lying there, but God gave me strength.

My son became paralyzed from the injury. The doctors told me he had swelling but he would walk again. I was relieved. I went to church and prayed. Through the course of the week the Lord told me I could call Him my friend.

Satan tried his best to depress me and blame God. In the midst of his attack,

“I said no God is with me. Then God said to me, Now I can call you my friend!”

My son was in so much pain. They transported him and I to Jacksonville to Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital. They said, “He will never walk again.

But even today I am standing on the promise God told me. The Holy Spirit woke me from sleeping. I prayed and the Holy Spirit said, “Hear me, don’t listen to man, Matthew will walk again.”

The next day his uncle came over and if God has not healed him by now he would never heal him. I said no! It’s been over 10 years but I’m believing God to make my son Matthew Kevin Johnson whole. Two months after the accident my father died.

The moral of the story regardless how painful and dark God will walk with u every step of the way. I never thought in a million years that my parents will die at 60 and 61 years of age. I literally trusted God. My parents were my backbone and my everything. I prayed with my mother everyday. She was accepting of the calling. I loved her and our relationship.

Today I can say the Lord is my light and salvation whom shall I fear the Lord is the strength of my life of whom shall I be afraid.

Five years after this tragedy, in 2010, I lost my children to the state system for three years! My son was home alone with his father, and in another accident. I was held responsible because of my husband’s condition. He and his family abandoned us and left us for dead. No one ever thought I would get them back in full custody. That is another long story.

I lost my job, my husband and my friends.

Nevertheless the Proverbs 21:1 came alive in my life,  “The heart of king is in the hand of the Lord; he can turns it like rivers.”

I went to jail for 72 days, to complete the order the first judge gave me. I had no contact with my ex family. I stayed at the Chelsea house for six months before I went to jail.

That was an experience I will never forget. God gave me a place to stay. I was in an argument with my sister. I fasted the next day. God dealt with Marlene and opened the doors to the Chelsea house. I can remember the day like yesterday. I tried to fix myself up in conversation.

She stopped me and said you are in. I could not believe it. God used me in jail to pray for others and even though my life has been challenging God has seen me through.

Today, I have full custody of my children, an apartment, and a 2 year degree from Tallahassee Community College and waiting to be accepted into Florida A and M University.

God can turn your life around from betrayal and broken heart.

Trust God with all your heart and lean not to your understanding. Proverbs 3:4-5.

2018 ~ Dave Wottle Kick & Year of Your Second Wind

kick
Pinterest Photo Taken in Munich (Photographer Unknown)

“Recently I felt the Lord say, Marlene, 2018 will be a year of acceleration, fruitfulness and you will catch a second wind if you don’t give up!”

This was confirmed recently by a prophetic word from Gale Sheehan : 2018 Open Doors in the Eye of the Storm,

Just like the “eyewall” represents the strongest wind, many times the last step to victory may seem the hardest. Just like a long-distance runner needs to break through the “wall” to receive a “second wind” to finish a race, we will need a spiritual “second wind” in our spiritual races to finish. The “second wind” brings a time of refreshing and renewal. 2018 is a year appointed for the “second wind” from the Lord. Gayle Sheehan – Read Full Article

In 1972 there was a famous collegiate runner who won the 1972 Olympic gold medal in Munich Germany for the 800 meter race. His finish time was 1:44.3.  He was also well known for two other things;

1) He would run wearing a tattered old golf hat to hold back his long hair and;
2) His sudden burst of energy, speed and second wind ~ known as the:
Dave Wottle Kick!

It is this Dave Wottle Kick or second wind which overrides a person’s desire to give out and into defeat or exhaustion. Striding for and finding this invigorating and refreshing second breath or kick of wind enables runners and athletes to go the extra mile, two or more.

It is not only athletes who need or may find this second wind. There are those whom often find themselves in the middle of emergencies, trauma, crisis or even “normal life today.”  I know I often need the mind set of Dave Wottle telling myself,

I’m not going to give in or up till I’ve crossed the line!”

Dave Wottle was a determined 22 year old in spite of opposition. Wottle married just six days after the Olympic trials started.  Being a newlywed worried his coach. Wottle (still married 40 years later spoke about his coach in a 2012 interview:

“He was old-school, and I’m trying to think how to put this tactfully,” Wottle said, “but he thought women weaken legs.”

He also  injured his knee in training just before these games. Dave had two very good reasons to “give in or up,” but  as I see it, he did just the opposite, he pressed in harder.

The writer in Hebrews 12:1-2 tells us as Christians not to give up or in when we feel like it, but to press onward,

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

dave wottle

When we are running our race for the Lord; when the net of sin trys to surround us, let’s fix our eyes on Jesus, accelerate our pace toward the track, the Lord has already paved before us, trusting that He will give us the wind of the Holy Spirit and the “Dave Wottle Kick” to finish our race!

Pray for the persecuted church & those serving there.

persecuted-church-side-column

Please join me today to pray for those sharing the good news of Jesus in places where their lives and livelihoods are in danger if you are a Christian.

We are so blessed to be able to post Christian articles, pictures, quotes, read the Bible in coffee shops, libraries, share our faith and pray openly over our food, families, friends and if allowed over complete strangers!

Still living in our world, even with technology so prevelant there are many who can’t even talk out loud, carry on conversations using the name of Christ, Jesus, prayer, Bible, etc. without being afraid of being extradited, persecuted, ex-communicated and in some places even killed.

It is hard to believe but it is true.

 There are many who are on the field, sharing the hope of Jesus, who can’t say what they are doing, where they are going, or who they are minstering to due to the dangers involved to themselves, their familes and those they are serving.

Those that are on the field often feel and isolated and alone. We know the Lord is with them, and showering them with His love and protection, but God has called us to pray for those we deem “the persecuted church”. This includes, missionaries, ministers, evangelists, teachers, business men and women and all who when and if the time ever came, if asked to deny Christ would have to say,

“No, as for me and my house we serve the Lord God Jehovah, the one true God.”

Imagine putting your children to bed, wanting to pray over them, but having to be very careful that “listening ears and watching eyes” don’t turn you in to authorities that could have you immediately cast out of the country, and/or put those around you in jeopardy of imprisionment or loss of privileges, jobs, and even your very life.

I know personally many times I take the religious freedom and liberties that I enjoy too lightly.

Please pray with me today for those who are called to go, especially their children, and their friends and families who are back home.

Imagine those on the field who are looking at the posts on social media, things happening in their churches and friends back home. Their love of friends, family and country does not go away when they leave for the foreign field.

In cases where they are in a sensitive culture where persecution is prevelant, they are unable to respond openly to posts and comment for fear of bringing attention to themselves. Technology and transportation have connected our worlds, and missionaries certainly have many advantages than years passed; still nothing can replace the lost holidays, etc. with families and friends, but God can and does give them grace and the a ability to pursue their call.

So today, please pray with me for someone you know or ask God to touch someone living or working in the “Persecuted Church”.

There is power of prayer, a note of encouragement that wouldn’t risk or jeopardize their situation. When you hear or read about the “persecuted church” someone has to be the one to actually go and then report this information. It is usually someone in the trenches. Just a simple “hello” I’m “thinking” about and for you is a great encouragement.  If you need someone to write to just let me know!

Crisis and trauma care includes unsaved soul. Perhaps this is the greatest kind of crisis and trauma care there is on the planet!

For more information on countries where Christians are persecuted read this great article from by Randy Alcorn on Eternal Perspective Ministries.

“Remember them that are in bonds as bound with them; and them which suffers adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Hebrews 13:3

I have many partners who are helping me help equip and train others for the harvest that is coming, in our lifetime and beyond. Hoping you will consider joining me by becoming a prayer for financial partner, or mentee!

Acceleration – It’s Time!

Steve McQueen – 70’s ‘King of Cool’ is spending time with Jesus!

But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment. James 5:12
This year the Lord has been speaking to me saying, Marlene, rather than making a list of resolutions you hope to keep or a bucket list of things you intend to do before you die; why don’t you just make a resolution to let your yes be yes and your no be no. Spend each day on ME, and I will bring you before those who are lost, broken and hurting.
It’s time to stop wasting time! You are a soul care paramedic, just look around you, there are people in crisis, trauma and dying all around you.
greg-laurie-steve-mcqueen
Greg Laurie Author of Steve McQueen The Salvation of an American Icon
I recently watched a documentary movie about Steve McQueen the 70’s bad boy actor which is based on the book Steve McQueen, The Salvation of an American Icon. Once deemed the ‘King of Cool’; McQueen came to know Jesus, the ‘King of Kings’ just before he passed away from cancer at the young age of 50.
McQueen was not a stranger to crisis and trauma. He drank and did drugs to cover his pain and shame. One of the things he said in an interview was that he regreted spending so much time drinking, doing drugs, and wasting time on things that were not of eternal value. He finally did learn that He was loved, treasured, and life had eternal value; something he never experienced or knew growing up.

In this poignant documentary, shortly after Steve made a decision to follow Jesus, he sought out Evangelist Billy Graham, who later autographed and gave him one of his own personal Bibles. McQueen treasured it and had it with him at his death.

And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.
 ~Revelation 12:11 NLT

One of the three words the Lord has given me to reflect on this year is the word acceleration. I’m still learning that no one can move or carry us into the places we need to be, faster than God. And certainly no one can usher in God’s perfect timing better than the Holy Spirit. I found it ironic and interesting that the makers of Steve’s first movie The Blob,  and now this last documentary about his life, were both Christian film makers. God had planted seeds of faith into Steve McQueen’s life long before he became one of Hollywood’s famous!

Steve McQueen loved to live, drive, fly and go at an accelerated pace. Even when he found out he had cancer, he wasted no time in seeking treatment, and God only after taking a good hard look at himself in the mirror.

He realized the mistakes he had made (I believe in God’s perfect timing), and was thankful for and to the Lord who rescued his soul and ended his race on this earth. Steve finished very well and right on time. 

Near the end of his life, he recounts that time is valuable but it is important to use it on the right things, because it goes very quickly.

HourglassIn the ministry the Lord has called me, I come across people every day that need the hope that only comes through building a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our lives here are temporal and none of us are promised tomorrow. We can’t bank our hopes, dreams or even our bucket list. But, we can be assured if we are faithful to trust and obey God, following where He leads,  that when our time is up here on this earth, like Steve, we will hear our Savior’s treasured words “welcome home!”

My call is to help those who are lost, hurting and in bondage to the things in this world that keep them from knowing they will hear these words when their time is up.

I have many partners who are helping me help equip and train others for the harvest that is coming, in our lifetime and beyond.
