Woman in the Mirror

Woman in the Mirror

“Who do you believe you are?”

She was asked this question recently and the answers varied from last week.

“I’m a mother, grandmother who is alone, sad, tired, fat, homeless and disillusioned.”

“Why do you believe that?”

“Why? Because that is what I think others see. Therefore, I believe that is who I am.”

“Why do you allow what you “think” others “assume or see” to be the truth?”

“Because that is what we do isn’t it? We believe what we assume to be true.?”

“Does this make it true?”

“I don’t know, I guess it is what you choose to believe.”

“Who does God say you are? He is the one that brought you here.”

“Sometimes I don’t hear God.”

“Why is that?”

“Because I don’t listen to Him. I don’t make time for Him.  I would rather choose to listen to what I think others think.”

“Isn’t that destructive?” 

“Of course it is destructive. And that is what makes me think I am alone, tired, worn, homeless and disillusioned. It is absolutely stupid to look into the mirror and talk to myself like this!”

You should be saying what your Abba Father says about you.

He calls you, “His Cinderella Released, His Mighty Girl, His Woman on a Mission!”

You are full of His grace, glory and gumption!

He says, “You are  totally healed, delivered, set free and are able to do exceedingly, abundantly above anything you could ever hope for or imagine.”

He also says, “His plans for you are for good and not for evil and that He has a seat for you in heavenly places with Him.”

He is preparing a place for you to come for eternity and He has never ever lied to you or told you anything that has not occurred or come to pass.  He says, “You are beautiful and whatever and whoever you are is good enough for Him and that He will never ever leave or forsake you.”

He also says,

“Darling daughter please just come spend time with me.  Don’t talk down about yourself or others.  Don’t waste time, that is going to just take you down and destroy you.  It is time to arise and be about my business.  You just need to love others.  Forget about what they do.”

Others are doing what you do; spending too much time in the mirror.  You will never see yourself as God sees you.

He is sitting right there beside you and will listen to you whenever you want Him to listen.  Jesus is always praying for you.

He hears your prayers when you pray in faith, believing in what you do not see!  Stop looking in the mirror and look for Him. He is here, right beside you.  He’s not in the mirror… He’s at your side looking at you.

He says, Turn to Me, look at Me my darling daughter, look at Me, look to Me, rest in Me My darling daughter rest.  I am here and will carry you, get dressed!

Don’t be the Woman in the Mirror… Be the Woman You Were Created to Be By Me!

Yes, I think I will… get dressed!

You Are One of God’s Treasures,

Emergency Text Alert!

Suddenly Emergency Text Alert!!

As I’m literally writing this blog, I get a text on my phone, “Did you say you are flying to Florida in two days? Have you seen the weather channel?  Will Tropical Storm Alberto affect your travel?  So I did what most of us do, I googled the weather channel and pulled up the map below then thought, “Ok Lord, I know that I’m going where you have led me. But, into a hurricane, now?”

Subtropical Storm Alberto

God really has a sense of humor. I’m flying into Pensacola, Florida this very same Tuesday morning scheduled to arrive at 8:30 a.m. from Alaska. My path is headed directly into the path of now subtropical storm Alberto at the exact time the storm is predicted to hit the Pensacola area.

I have a peace about flying in and know that my steps are ordered of God. Sometimes we don’t know why…we have to walk through certain circumstances or head directly into a storm center. We aren’t sure what the outcome will be.

This reminded me of a conversation I had years ago with one of my Sunday School teachers and fellow brothers in the Lord who was walking through some serious health issues. I shared with him what the Lord had shown me. I told him I see a “light coming at the end of a tunnel”.

 His reply, “I hope it’s not the headlight of a freight train!” 

William and his wife Sheila are always full of humor, even in the midst of crisis, trauma and transition. Whenever we are in seasons of our lives where the circumstances look like calamity is on the horizon, remember what the Lord says about calamity.

They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my stay.
Psalm 18:18

Suicide in Alaska

About Alaska’s Suicide Rate:

suicide

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

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

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

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

Insecurity “I”s that will incinerate you!

Insecurity

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings,

Cinderella Released…from ashes to beauty.

“I”s that will Incinerate You – Immobility

Fear

Immobility  – Fear will immobilize you as was in the case of Pastor Bobette Stubblefield,

Soon after our marriage began, my husband began to isolate me by forbidding me to spend time at church and with my family and friends. Isolation then begins to break down a person’s worth; and little by little steals their identity.  My husband would shove me down and overpower me physically.  …He would then urinate on me.  Fear became my captor (Stubblefield. March 20, 2004).

She also described how she would shake uncontrollably whenever she would think about going home or would drive toward her house. She stayed in the marriage for 12 years and faced fear daily.  Finally, one day, when she had to defend herself in a court battle over her children, she was forced to face fear head on.  Fearful, but determined to overcome it, she took courageous steps toward the courtroom door.  Just before entering the courtroom, she realized she was not alone and that God had stationed angels around her.  Bobette recalls that day:

But, before I walked in front of the judge, God opened my eyes like He opened the prophet Elijah servant’s eyes.  Elijah’s servant saw thousands of angels standing ready for battle on he and his country’s behalf.  When God allowed me to see into the spiritual realm, He showed me six angels dressed like Secret Service men.  They were with me walking arm in arm into the courtroom. I realized I was not alone anymore. The Bible says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and a sound mind.”

Like a Signal in the Sky….The Power of the Cross Never Dies!

Power of the cross

I’m looking back a few years ago, when I took this picture.  I had spent a year in Ohio working at a large ministry and the experience and friendships that I made while I was there are not measurable.  There was probably not anything in Ohio that I didn’t love!  I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life there and build a retreat where all of my friends could come.  I already had my eye on a beautiful old farmhouse!

I had made many forever friends and were building more each day.  I loved Ohio’s central location, the ability to travel practically anywhere in the U.S. quickly and  had set up a very cute and cozy apartment in New Albany.  Getting ready for my first fall and then winter set in as quickly as the next change did.

A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

Change is always difficult and who can know when you are in a changing season how to plan.  For a while after I left Ohio my heart was not open for planning.  It seemed like every time I got my hopes up again for a home, a place to put roots down the season would change and I would be picked up like an autumn leaf and carried away on another adventure.  Thus is the feeling in my spirit.  Who can fight God?  Acts 5:39 says,

But if it is from God, you will not be able to overthrow them.
You may even find yourselves fighting against God!”

You see I didn’t know at the time that my youngest would be soon be getting married. But, I knew he was going to need me there.  The excitement of living near all of my sons again was exhilarating!  Yes, I can do this!  I’m not too old.  A position and plan opened up and yes, there it was God WAS once more directing my steps.  There was also someone very special in Pensacola, that I would learn much from and whom needed and wanted me!  So many things have happened since that drive after that cross appeared in the sky signaling the change that was coming.

[the mockers to Jesus at the Crucifixion:] “…Save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”

“He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.”Mat 27:40, 42 (NIV)

This must have been what the disciples thought when they saw Jesus up on that cross.  I would have thought it.  How many times had the disciples seen Jesus do miracles in their lives, and yet, even Peter had just denied him.  Even after he had promised he would never do it.

John stood by with Jesus’ mother Mary and the other women.  The grief the sadness, the sorrow, the change.  This was what was in my soul that drive from Ohio until I looked up and saw the cross.  It was like a signal in the Sky that everything was going to be ok.  It didn’t matter how old I was, or what the future held, good or bad.  I had hope that only the cross and the blood of Jesus can bring.

This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.
It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Hebrews 6:19

Hope then that I would be working for Globe Hope.  Change for me is really never easy, but it is exciting. Once I get over the hump.  Like a leaf, picked up by the wind in the fall…

Anchor – Hillsong Live

I have this hope
As an anchor for my soul
Through every storm
I will hold to YouWith endless love
All my fear is swept away
In everything
I will trust in YouCHORUS
There is hope in the promise of the cross
You gave everything to save the world You love
And this hope is an anchor for my soul
Our God will stand
UnshakeableVERSE
Unchanging One
You who was and is to come
Your promise sure
You will not let goBRIDGE
Your Name is higher
Your Name is greater
All my hope is in YouYour word unfailing
Your promise unshaken
All my hope is in You

 Hope.jpg

After leaving Globe Hope and following the Lord’s leading, I’ve been able to see how blessed I am and how much more the Lord wants me to put my HOPE and TRUST in HIM! Above is just one of God’s Treasures. She lives on the streets in Los Angeles along with thousands of other homeless.

And a scribe came up and said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” 20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” Matthew 8:19-20

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
