God’s Treasures Will Last Forever!

God’s Treasures – Patricia & Marcus Winchester

I recently included a testimony in my newsletter from Patricia Winchester who shared with me, “I don’t ask God Why, I say Why Not Me?” She recently shared her personal trial and testimony at her church! My Enews included the entire sermon…but, for just Patricia’s testimony Click Here. It is a message of HOPE and is very worth sharing with those who are in a battle of any kind and of course those who have never received the hope of an eternal home with Jesus Christ.

God’s Treasure – Revivalist Barbara Weeks Spayd

My good friend Barbara Weeks Spayd packed her bags and went home to be with the Lord, this past May. Her church Lifepoint prepared a wedding banquet as a celebration of her life. Barbara taught on becoming the Bride of Christ and was passionate about this topic.

So thankful for mom’s church family at Life Point – the memorial service was set up like a wedding banquet – so appropriate for a woman who was so in love with her Bridegroom – absolutely sure she would have LOVED it 😊. Jeanine Post

I was able to spend time with her just before I left last November for Alaska. Our last meeting together she prayed over me, and said in her always affirming voice… You WILL finish your race strong!

A friend wrote about her memorial service…

Went to the beautiful celebration of life for this dear friend this morning. As usual, I left feeling better than when I went in. It was always the case when being with Barbara. I’m so thankful she was in my life. I’m also a little jealous that she gets to be in heaven right now. Also thankful that we will see her again. Can’t wait.

Her last trip to Israel she began a blog which may be viewed here.

Barbara and I met whenever we could when she was home from Israel. She would email or write to me over the span of  over two decades and was always a source of strength, encouragement and spiritual mother.

I pray for you regularly because I know you are so talented and have a great anointing on your life and destiny arranged by God for you before the foundation of the world.
I can only tell you what I am doing, and Richard confirmed this morning that I am right on.
Devour the Word Marlene, I read all of the Book of Revelation yesterday and Hebrews this morning. I don’t ever remember devouring the Word like I am this last few weeks.
Just read until God gives you a Rhema Word and then cling to that Word for dear life. Jesus is the Word and He is our Bread, the Bread of Life.
What’s happening is that our faith is being stretched like never before. We are no longer in the boat and what that means to me is that if He doesn’t rescue us, we’re lost. I’ve been in such pain with my leg this week, but remember Moses was on the backside of the desert when God called him to deliver His chosen people.

Richard had a word this morning that we can only go on as high a mountain as we have been prepared for through our testings and experiences.

And you my dear friend have had more than your share of problems.

Command that depression to get off you right now. You have the authority. Encourage yourself in the Lord and review every promise He has given you. I pray for a witty invention for you. This is a trial of your faith, but because Jesus is interceding for you you will find your destiny.
This morning he said, “We can call our future in right now because God has already finished it.” So I say to you, “NO MORE DELAYS. NO MORE DETOURS. YOU ARE GOING INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND!”
 
Talk to you soon.
 
Barbara

God’s Treasure – Evangelist Naomi Moore    I’m So Glad You Prayed for Me!

A third woman God brought my way almost thirty years ago is Naomi Moore. She has been praying for me and my sons ever since.  We were able to sit, laught and share God’s goodness together!  You can listen to a special testimony about a phone that was dead and came to life…just in the nick of time! I’ve titled it The Resurrected Phone!

These are just three amazing women God has put in my life that I would like to honor and share with you today!

There so many men and women in my life who are so very special to me. I am reminded each day how we all need one another, and how important it is to stay connected with those God brings our way!

Looking forward to us all finishing the race well!

Searching for God’s Treasures,

Marlene

Inflammation “I”s that will Incinerate You

eye inflammation

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

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

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

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

Partner with Me on my Trip to Africa!

Challenge Farm

Dear Friends and Family,

July is finally here and  I’m excited to be heading to Challenge Farm in Kitale, Kenya Africa!

Challenge Farm is part of Globe Hope, the humanitarian arm of Globe International, Inc. where I work.

When I got saved at the age of 12, I felt God calling me to Africa. I could see myself in a vision giving a cup of water to little children. Challenge Farm was founded in 1992 and is home to 188 street children. Many lives have been changed over the years at Challenge Farm and I am so excited to be able to go there! For more information please visit their website at Challenge Farm.org.

Below is a story that happened just last year. Above is a picture of some of these precious children. “On April 9, 2014 in Kitale, Kenya 87 street kids were awakened from their sleep and placed in jail. Challenge Farm by faith took in 30 new children.”As the children were brought to Challenge Farm one of the boys asked, “Is there food at Challenge Farm?” – “Yes, 3 meals a day” – “and football every day!” – “and showers! ” Jesse and Elissa Pontius

The cost of the 21-day trip is about $3,000. This price includes airfare, meals, lodging, and ground transportation and some supplies for the Challenge Farm. Please pray for our team & me as we prepare to go on this mission trip. Apart from financial support, there are several ways you could help:

At the present time I have approximately ¼ of my funds raised. I would like to ask that you would consider supporting me financially. (I recommend a gift of $50, $100 or $150, but you can always give more!), but more important please pray for me and our team. A few facts about where I am going:

Challenge Farm Boys

  • In Sub-Saharan Africa (the part of the continent south of the Sahara Desert), more than 300 million people – nearly half the population – live on less than $1 a day.
  • Every day 6,600 people die from AIDS.
  • More than 12 million African children have already lost one or both parents to AIDS, with the number of AIDS orphans expected to increase to more than 18 million by 2010.
  • In Kenya, the median age is only 18, and about half the population is 15 or younger

The 30 children that were taken in from being “netted” on the street were all 12 and younger. The minimum cost to feed, clothe, provide medical, dental, shelter and education is approximately $200+ per month. Imagine your monthly household expenses increasing $6,000 per month in one day!

Buried Lies – Milky Bath – Cinderella’s Released

Image

In a Dream….

 

The Lord had me go down, swim down into a deep cave under water, and I began to dig out rocks which represented buried lies.  (Years ago I went to a class taught by Missionary Marty Delmon.  She wrote a book “Buried Lies” which goes into great detail about how buried lies affect our souls.)

 

The first rock I found was a rock representing unforgiveness, then fear, doubt, unbelief, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness and finally anger.  As I dug them up it was too much for me to carry alone.  I looked up and saw a man, “Peter” who took off his towel that was wrapped around his waist and jumped into the water.  He brought me down nets for each one of the rocks.  He helped me bring them up to Jesus who was now standing above by the pool of water.

Image 

He crushed the first stone of unforgiveness with one hand, the powder disintegrated into the clean pool, turning it into a milky white color.  Jesus said, It’s milk – you are bathing in it and the water immediately turned warm.  (Later I felt as if He were saying it is time to let go and grow up.  “Get over it!” would be what my Pastor would say.

                                                                                                 

Next Jesus took a bat and began to hit each rock out into the depths of eternity never to return.  He knocked every buried lie out of the earth and then I handed Him one last stone – Disappointment.

 

He said, “No more will you be disappointed.  I cherish you, you are my pleasant one, my darling.  Others might misunderstand you, but I know you, I created you, to be strong, strong enough to wait faithfully.  Strong enough to weather the storms of disappointment and to love those that are embittered, even toward you.

 

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but you are not hopeless, for I have created you for such a special time, just wait.  I WILL to supply and finish every dream I STARTED in you, and if the dream was not from ME, then discard it, don’t count on it for it is only meant to DISTRACT and DISARM you from the tasks I have for you. 

 

I WILL PUT MY STRENGTH IN YOU AND remember those lies are finished, destroyed, diminished and cast into outer darkness.

 

NO MORE shall oppression and grief have a hold on you (ISAIAH 54).  I do not wish to destroy you, but only to build you up in MY most HOLY FAITH.  Receive MY WORD, Receive MY WORDS.  Receive and let your faith flourish.  Look to me and none other.

 

Don’t let the enemy deceive you for I have released you, MY CINDERELLA RELEASED…  Go forth in the name of the LORD and preach MY WORD.  Be strong and of good courage!

 

How to open prison doors…

Keys to prison doors

“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You (Jesus);
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You.
For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor.
You will surround them with a shield.” Psalm 5:11-12

No matter where you are, in jail or in life, there is only one way to experience total and complete freedom.  Jesus holds the keys.
Experience Him…today.

Love this…today my pastor preached on depression and it was awesome! During the praise and worship the Lord began to speak to me about the reason for worship and why He (God) wants our worship. It is the principle of sowing and reaping. When we sow we always reap more than what we sow… God does not have to have our worship to survive. He always has been and always will be. He is the highest KING!

When our praise goes up, He receives it and it begins to fill up like a giant rain cloud and then God begins to pour back down on us HIS PRESENCE, HIS POWER, HIS LOVE and that lifts us up out of the depression. He gives us hope and motivates us to fulfill the destiny and become the being He created us to be! God inhabits the praises of HIS people….

Life is unfolding before you….there are divine appointments you don’t want to miss.

Life is unfolding before you....there are divine appointments you don't want to miss.

I was reading in 2 Corinthians 12:8-10 this morning where the Apostle Paul wrote,

“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it(a thorn in his flesh) away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Trauma, stress, doubt, fear is all around us today. There are many things that are “thorns in our flesh” and hopelessness and despair can come in to cloud our vision. There is life after trauma, divorce, sickness and loss. I want to help you recover your joy!
