What is your mission statement?

I recently had the opportunity to meet with several millennials who have started their own businesses.

We discussed Google’s mission statement which is:

Google’s Mission Statement. “To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”Aug 27, 2018

God tells the prophet Habakkuk who was living and working in very evil and perilous times to write down the vision/mission/revelation and make it plain….

The Lord’s Answer

Then the Lord replied:

“Write down the revelation
    and make it plain on tablets
    so that a herald[b] may run with it.
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
    it speaks of the end
    and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
    it[c] will certainly come
    and will not delay.

Read entire Habakkuk 2 Here 

The Lord gives instructions on being a righteous business man or woman and how important it is to stay focused on the vision and mission God gives us.

Merry Christmas from Marlene!

“Shalom aleikhem!” Yeshua repeated. “Just as the Father sent me, I myself am also sending you.” John 20:21 CJB

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our savior let us remember the reason He came was to be with us, to redeem us and to return again. Our mission is to be fishers of men, and to equip and train others to lead others to Him. 

Behold, The Lamb who was slain for our sins!

For a church to be constantly needing revival is the indication of much sin, for if it were sound before the Lord it would remain in the condition into which a revival would uplift its members. A church should be a camp of soldiers, not an hospital of invalids. But there is exceedingly much difference between what ought be and what is, and consequently many of God’s people are in so sad a state that the very fittest prayer for them is for revival. Some Christians are, spiritually, but barely alive. ~Charles Spurgeon – What is Revival – Sword & Trowel 1866

Revival is not measured by the number of people who come to a church, Revival is measured by the number of sheep trained, equipped and led to the pasture God wants them! Mark Geppert, Founder SEAPC

Fishers of men are: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Equipped by the Holy Spirit and Emitted by the Holy Spirit

True Leadership is mindful of others. 

Therefore, if you have any encouragement for me from your being in union with the Messiah, any comfort flowing from love, any fellowship with me in the Spirit, or any compassion and sympathy, then complete my joy by having a common purpose and a common love, by being one in heart and mind. Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves — look out for each other’s interests and not just for your own. Phil. 2:1-4 CJB

May the Lord bless you and your family this holiday season!

Lord, Where do we go from here?

hurricaneirma

As thousands flee in Florida, and thousands more are devastated in Texas, the carribbean and Mexico (as a result of the recent earthquake); I am certain many are praying and asking the question, “Lord, where do we go from here.”

Jesus had just performed two great miracles, the Feeding of the Five Thousand and Walking on the Water (John 6:15)

Jesus then gave a word to the people chastising them about why they were seeking after him.   26Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27“Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”

Still, the people wondered about what they had to “do” in order to work and serve Him in order to get what they wanted. His words were very clear on what to “do” and the condition our hearts should be in when we are asking the big question, Where do we go from here?

Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:29

 When we find ourselves in the midst of the storms of life, our only hope and “work” is to do His will. What is His will?

To believe and trust in the one He sent – Jesus, our Lord.

One moment we are living, working, laughing and enjoying the fruit of our labor here on earth, and then in an instant our lives are changed, many times leaving us in a state of emergency, crisis and trauma.  It could be a hurricane, a sickness or disease, or it could be something as seemingly simple as an empty nest leaving us grieving and asking,

“Lord, What is my purpose? What do I do? How will I survive?
Where do I go from here?”

God knows our name, our shame, our sitation and has already established us and prepared a place for us right along side of Him.

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, 12:2

Lord, where do I go from here? Seek Him, and you will never find yourself lost and without hope. He is the only place we can go and remain steadfast and unshakeable.

Endurance – The Iditarod = Alaskan Sled Dog Race

Mushing_graphicx-800x467

The Iditarod – Alaskan Sled Dog Race

Passion, Vision and Mission

I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 23-24

I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
I Corinthians 9:23-25

The Need for Self-Discipline

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Endurance

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 
2 Timothy 4:7

Iditarod

Portions of the Iditarod Trail were used by the Native Alaskan Eskimo Inupiaq and Athabaskan peoples hundreds of years before the arrival of Russian fur traders in the 1800s, but the trail reached its peak between the late 1880s and the mid-1920s as miners arrived to dig coal and later gold, especially after the Alaska gold rushes at Nome in 1898,[10] and at the “Inland Empire” along the Kuskokwim Mountains between Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers, in 1908.

mail

The primary communication and transportation link to the rest of the world during the summer was the steamship; but between October and June the northern ports like Nome became icebound, and dog sleds delivered mail, firewood, mining equipment, gold ore, food, furs, and other needed supplies between the trading posts and settlements across the Interior and along the western coast. Roadhouses where travelers could spend the night sprang up every 14 to 30 miles (23 to 48 km) until the end of the 1920s, when the mail carriers were replaced by bush pilots flying small aircraft and the roadhouses vanished. Dog sledding persisted in the rural parts of Alaska, but was almost driven into extinction by the spread of snowmobiles in the 1960s.

great race

 

The most famous event in the history of Alaskan mushing is the 1925 serum run to Nome, also known as the “Great Race of Mercy.” A large diphtheria epidemic threatened Nome, and Nome’s supply of antitoxin had expired and doctor Curtis Welch refused to use it, and then proceeded to send out telegrams looking for a fresh supply of antitoxin. The nearest antitoxin was found to be in Anchorage, nearly one thousand miles away. The only way to get the antitoxin to Nome was by sled dog, due to unusable planes and ships. Governor Scott Bone approved a safe route and the 20-pound (9.1 kg) cylinder of serum was sent by train 298 miles (480 km) from the southern port of Seward to Nenana, where it was passed just before midnight on January 27 to the first of twenty mushers and more than 100 dogs who relayed the package 674 miles (1,085 km) from Nenana to Nome. The dogs ran in relays, with no dog running over 100 miles (160 km).

 

balto
Balto

 

The Norwegian Gunnar Kaasen and his lead dog Balto arrived on Front Street in Nome on February 2 at 5:30 a.m., just five and a half days later. The two became media celebrities, and a statue of Balto was erected in Central Park in New York City in 1925, where it has become one of the most popular tourist attractions.

Seppala&Togo3

However, most mushers consider Leonhard Seppala and his lead dog Togo to be the true heroes of the run. Together they covered the most hazardous stretch of the route, and carried the serum 91 miles, the single farthest of any team.[12]john 812

Please pray for the people of Alaska and that God’s light will overcome the darkness as many face tremendous challenges of hardship, crisis and trauma.

Migration is within us – will we choose life or death?

migration

I don’t know about you but whenever I get stressed and don’t know what to do… I feel a migration movement coming on.  What I mean is I want to get up from where I am at and move to another place.  You’ve heard the grass is greener on the other side?  I’ve often wondered if this is attached to migration.  In the case of passing from this life to the next.  I do believe the grass is definitely greener on the other side, at least for me.

Whenever the Lord allows me to go back to Kenya my dream is to travel all around the perimeter of Kenya  and to see the great migration that occurs yearly.  It is a natural instinct for literally millions of animals who migrate from Kenya to Tanzania.  About Travel says,

The great annual migration of millions of zebra, wildebeest (gnu) and other antelope in East Africa tops almost every list of safari experiences. When you plan your trip, you’ll need information about the annual migration, the best times to witness this wildlife spectacle, where to stay, and when to see it in Kenya and Tanzania.

The Migration

Each year around 1.5 million wildebeest and 300,000 zebra (along with other antelope) gather up their young and start their long trek from Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains, further north to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. They go in search of food and water. Their journey runs in a clockwise circle and the animals cover a distance of around 1800 miles. It’s a tough journey, and every year an estimated 250,000 wildebeest don’t make it.

One of the most spectacular sights of the migration is when the herds gather to cross the Grumeti River (Tanzania) and the Mara River (Kenya) from July through September.

Psalm 23 reminds me of this distinct urge and how David must have felt when he was tending his flock and they had this sudden urge to migrate!  When are we comfortable with passing from one dimension into the other.  In David’s case he was hunted, betrayed, and pursued by his enemies in an attempt to keep him from his inheritance.  This was a position and place to which he had not yet arrived, yet I believe deep within him the urge to continue through trauma, stress and trials moved him to not give up and to pursue the unknown.  I wonder if he was choosing life here, and wanting what only death could bring… a migration to the other side where rest, peace and eternity reigns supreme.

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

The Brook, Valley and River of Kidron (Cedron)

1 Kings 2:371599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

37 For that day that thou goest out, and passest over the river of Kidron, know assuredly, that thou shalt die the death: thy blood shall be upon thine own head.

Nehemiah 2:151599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back, and coming back, I entered by the gate of the valley, and returned.

Jeremiah 31:401599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, and unto the corner of the horsegate toward the East, shall be holy unto the Lord, neither shall it be plucked up nor destroyed anymore forever.

It is interesting to study about this brook and valley and the filled and unfulfilled prophecies.  You can read about the first and last time this brook and valley are mentioned Click here.

The darkest valley is spoken about in scripture.  Before you come to it you must go over the brook of Kidron.  David walked over it, Nehemiah, Jeremiah….then finally Jesus and his disciples on the way to the garden of Gethsemane on the night he was betrayed. The famous song says, “we all have to walk that lonesome valley by ourselves.”  Migration comes to us all to make that walk from this life to the next.  I have chosen to walk in the way of Jesus.  He went before me, but He is still with me.

If you would like to learn more about the Journey Jesus took over the Brook of Cedron I would be happy to share with you, your small or large group!  Email me at CinderellaReleased@gmail.com

I Have an Inheritance!

queen

I am the daughter of a King! I have an inheritance!

Today I read about Job’s daughters….Three women who became very wealthy land and livestock owners — ranchers!

Job 42 says, “The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. 13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 The first daughter he named Jemimah. (In Hebrew the meaning of the name Jemimah is: Little dove.),

Hence, for a meaning of the name Jemimah, Jones’ Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names, NOBSE Study Bible Name List and even BDB Theological Dictionary read Dove (yet BDB, states “perhaps” and Jones “as some conjecture”).

To a Hebrew audience, however, the name Jemimah doesn’t look at all like the word for dove — which is יונה (yona), the source of the name Jonah — but much rather like the word for sea, which isמימ (mayim). The name Jemimah would form from using this word as verb (which isn’t done in Scriptures but in the name-arena, anything goes), and making it feminine: She Who Acts Like The Sea.

Jones adds that the most ancient translations of the Bible, namely the Septuagint and the Vulgate, derive the name Jemimah from the noun יום (yom), meaning a day. The derived adverb יומם (yomam) means by day, or during daylight (Numbers 10:34, Job 24:16, Jeremiah 15:9). That would give the name Jemimah the pleasing meaning of Lady Daylight.

the second Keziah (In Hebrew the meaning of the name Keziah is: Cassia; sweet-scented spice and was popular with the Puritans.),

The verb קצע (qasa’ I) means to scrape or scrape off. It’s used only once in the Bible, in Leviticus 14:41. This verb comes with two derivatives:

  • The feminine noun קציעה (qesi’a), meaning cassia, a kind of sweet smelling cinnamon powder, harvested by scraping it off from trees. This word too occurs just once in the Bible, in Psalm 45:8. It is also identical to the name Keziah.
  • The noun מקצעה (maqsu’a) denotes a scraping tool (Isaiah 44:13).

and the third Keren-Happuch.

The verb קרן (qrn) is a bit of a mystery. It occurs in several Semitic languages and it always has to do with horns or having horns. In Hebrew, curiously enough, it may also mean to shine or be radiant. Although there’s an obvious imaginary overlap between being radiant and having horns, in cognate languages this root only means to have horns. But we know that the Hebrews used this verb in the meaning of to shine because it was applied to Moses when he came down the mountain after his meeting with God (Exodus 34:29). The Vulgate had Moses grow horns in this passage, and that’s why Michelangelo’s famous statue of Moses shows him with horns.

This verb comes with a noun, namely קרן (qeren), meaning horn, and that’s peculiar too. Why is there a noun that means horn, and not a noun that means ray? (Although, Habakkuk 3:4 speaks of rays (probably not horns) that emanate from the Lord’s hand.)

HAW Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament thinks that the verb was derived of the noun, while BDB Theological Dictionary says that the verb and the noun were both derived of an even more fundamental root, but the meaning of this most fundamental root is even more obscure.

A similar duplicity may exist in the verb צוץ (sus), which means to bloom or to shine.

Job 42:15 says, “Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.”

There have been times in my life that I’ve been treated as if I’m “not good enough” because I was a woman.  The enemy has said, You’ve lost everything more than once because you are a woman. This is the reason you are alone.  There is no one to help you, and you will never be good enough ever… Have you ever felt this way?

God released me from these lies. He’s told me I have an inheritance that doesn’t come from man or by being a man!

Job 1:1 In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. He had seven sons and three daughters, and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East.

First of all Job was a MAN and lost everything.  He was blameless, upright and loved God. His friends doubted him when he was down and didn’t look at Job’s character, they looked at what he had lost…. They were wrong in their thinking toward Job and in their actions. In the end God called them to repentance and told them to make a sacrifice in Job’s presence and then told them to have Job pray for them.  Of course Job did, they were his friends.  Job’s character hadn’t changed even though his wealth and status had, or so everyone thought! When Job prayed his friends were restored in the eyes of God and Job was given double!

Secondly, God also restored Job’s family. He gave him seven more sons and three daughters. We read above about how Job named his daughters. Job lived 140 years after their birth. He also gave his daughters an inheritance along with their brothers.  They were also the most beautiful women in the land.

God is saying he loves us, we are given light and life through him to be a sweet smelling fragrance to bloom and shine in and through Him who has given us life!  We have been given an inheritance, the same as our brothers and sisters in Christ…that is never-ending, all sufficient and a completely perfect gift from our Father in heaven!
