Hurricane – Who Is Like God?

michael

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Special prayer request:

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

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

You are one of God’s Treasures,

The Moose Jumped Over the Fence

Joy Recovery

Sometimes the Lord uses strange circumstances to get our attention! While I was in Alaska I opened the door to let out my friend’s English Setter Samantha and to my surprise there was a moose who had jumped over the fence! I wish I could say that I jumped for joy, while in fact it was just the opposite. I immediately picked up the phone to call for help and the response on the other end was, “Well that is Alaska for you!”

What appeared to be an emergency on my end, barely lit up a response on the the other person’s end. She said, “Usually they will jump right back over when they are ready. It’s just a matter of waiting.”

This reminds me of helping others during crisis and trauma care. We can provide a fence, a safe place, a listening ear and loving heart. When they have been fed, rested, and are ready, they are able to jump back over the fence and face life out in the world.

Many times I’ve had to wait patiently for the Lord to lead or guide me to whom He wants me to minister.

The toughest part is being willing to listen and wait patiently for God’s assignments.

Then, soon as I least expect it I open the door and realize there is a moose in my back yard!

Forgiveness – Key to Healing


FORGIVENESS – A KEY TO HEALING IN ANY CRISIS AND TRAUMA SITUATION – Hear Peter’s Message by Clicking Here
Peter Neuberger, his wife Rebekah and children are missionaries from Tanzania. They are home on furlough visiting his wife’s parents who live in the Mat-Su Valley and will be leading a crusade in Kenya.  Rebekah is recovering from some health issues. Please keep these precious saints in your prayers.

Fathers, We Need You! You are Soul Care Providers

I was sitting in a coffee shop thinking about Father’s Day and asking God what He wanted me to share.  There have been many influential fathers in my lives. Pictured above and below are just a few of some of the ones I know personally.

While I was writing I was privy to a conversation of a young man talking about the soon coming birth of his son. He described it, like being in the midst of a hurricane that is soon approaching.”

He went on to basically describe, “His newfound fatherhood is like a flurry of preparing for an uncontrollable event that he knew would radically change his life forever.”

He added, “My baby boy is running around inside my wife’s belly kicking and screaming. He is coming… and he will be here soon!” 

Then a few weeks ago this man’s unborn son went from kicking and lots of active movement in his mother’s womb to no activity and no respiratory score. Thankfully, after testing and waiting, they found out the baby is fine. I know this must have been especially scary, since this couple has been married for over 14 years and this is their first pregnancy.

He was talking with a couple about helping build non-profit sustainability programs  in Alaska. From their conversation I believe he will make a great dad and provider.

I love how the Lord will seat people right next to you who have the same heart and passion for souls and discipleship. I believe this confirms what God is calling us as believers to do in this hour.  I call these individuals Soul Care Providers.

Fatherhood

I’ve known many mothers and fathers who have gone through trials and tribulations regarding their children. Whatever the storm, God has it under control.

“Jesus is walking through the storm to get to your boat.” Cynthia Pettis

In 1993 I went to work for a young man and his wife who had waited over a decade for their first son. It was such a blessing when this little boy was born! This family now has three grown children and they have been such a model for other parents as well as an example of the Father’s love for His children.

This picture on the left is of Johnny Blue Craig Sr. and his son Johnny Blue Jr. This picture was  created for a prepaid phone card and a promotional ad for a Fatherhood Campaign. There is only a short window of time we have as parents and especially fathers to influence the next generation. The picture on the right is Johnny Blue, April and their three grown children.

We need fathers to come to the revelation that you become a father when life is conceived and you are a “father and soul care provider” even before your baby arrives.

Soul Care Providers ~ Fathers we need you desperately…

So, it is in the case of
hurricanes, tsunamis,
crisis, trauma and lost souls.

Storms of life come suddenly and how can we prepare
and provide soul care without the fathers who love the Father of all Fathers?

Fathers, Soul Care Providers, We Need You!

Onward Christian Soldiers
Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before
Onward then, ye people
Join our happy throng
Blend with ours your voices
In our triumph song
Christ the royal master
Leads against the foe
Forward into battle
See His banners go
Crowns and Thrones may perish
Kingdoms rise and wane
But the cross of Jesus
Constant will remain

What is that to you? Follow Me

Imagine yourself to be the Apostle Peter. You have cried, prayed, fasted, fished, all night, and caught nothing. And then suddenly a voice cries out from the shore and tells you to cast your net again, just one more time. The fish come from nowhere and are practically jumping into the net.  You look back to the man who called out from the shore and realize it is Jesus!  You realize it is going to take some time to haul in this catch and you just can’t wait. So you put on your robe and jump out of the boat to get to shore to embrace Him. In the midst of the excitement, you forget your sorrow and that denied Him ~ three times.

Because…. just a few short days ago, you were in the upper room with everyone and like the rest, swore your allegience to always follow this man you believed to be the Son of God. Then just when you thought you would never do what you did…

 

So when he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and [e]sat down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me, Teacher, and, Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye also should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, A [f]servant is not greater than his lord; neither [g]one that is sent greater than he that sent him.

If ye know these things, blessed are ye if ye do them.
John 13:12-17

Jesus washed each of the disciple’s feet individually. He then said to them, “do this to one another.”  I believe he was saying, “Don’t compare yourself to one another, but serve one another as I have served you.” Peter, John and the other disciples lived, loved and worked with Jesus, yet each one had their individual assignments in the Kingdom of God.

God will never change His mind about you!

Image result for god will never change his mind

God’s word is true and it is certain.
It divides between the soul and spirit,
that which is temporary or eternal.

God separates the darkness and the light,
and upholds what is truth and what is right.

God is true and He is certain.
He never tells us a lie,
He created the world and He loves you and I.
He will never change his mind.

God sent His Son – the Messiah our King.
He reveals His mighty plan and purpose,
to those who will believe and worship him.

He picked me up from my fall, healed,
delivered me, now calls me his own.
He will never change his mind…

No, My God will never ever change his mind.
I am certain that He said,
“I will never ever change my mind
and I am not a God, that I should lie.”
Trust Me my child, I will never change my mind.

God is true and He is certain.
He never tells us a lie,
He created the world and He loves you and I.
He will never change his mind.
