Spiritual Abortion An Appeal To Heaven

Embroidery.jpg
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your
book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
The enemy of God, Satan wants you to keep your eyes on the death, destruction and disappointments…. but I say, that God says, He is the ruler of the heavens and He has aborted Satan’s plans for the earth.

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Pet. 5:8-9
Father, thank you for your loving kindness, your mercy, your goodness and love. Thank you for creating the earth and me and thank you for placing me in the family line that fulfills the plans and purposes you desire. Please help my children, grandchildren and lineage to come to all fulfill the purposes you have designed for them. I believe that you created everything living, and there is a realm and heavenly home and a new earth that as your daughter I will live and dwell in forever.

LORD GOD JEHOVAH, I stand in agreement with your words that you have ordained a plan for each one of us and that if we will hold firm to you, that you are faithful to perfect that plan and purpose which will not only bring you glory but will bring plenty of fruitfulness in our lives.
I thank you that you have overcome the enemy and abort his plans, attacks and assignments. I thank you that no weapon formed against us will prosper and great shall be our Shalom and that shall rest on our children and their children to come.
I thank you that YOU inside of me is GREATER than the works of the flesh and the enemy that wage warfare against our souls.

Carved Vessel

I bless your Holy name. I plead the precious blood of Yeshua over myself and my family. I ask you to clean my spirit and make me a vessel of honor for you. I pray that I will not fear the enemy and that your joy will be my strength.
You surround me with your angels in the heavenlies and I declare this day that I believe and have faith in you alone. There are no other gods that I pray to or form allegiance to. I ask that you would sever all ungodly soul and spiritual ties that would keep me from declaring and walking in your divine power, authority and unconditional love.
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.” Is. 54:17
BW Vultue
I pray that you would break off any addictions, judgments, generational curses over me and that the enemy would not have an open door or foot hold in any place in my life. I repent of those things I’ve willingly or unwillingly allowed into my eyegate, eargate or mouthgate that would be a hindrance or open gate for the enemy to come in and have a foot hold to abort your plans and purposes for creating me.
You created me independant of the world and it’s resources. I thank you that I am dependant on you for my provision, protection, health and well being. You promise that you will never leave or forsake us or see your children begging for food. I thank you that I have a place to live, eat, rest and pray without ceasing. You are My King and I am your daughter that loves you. I ask that you touch my heart and spirit and open up the capacity to live, laugh and love in a greater way each day.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Cor. 10:13
I pray that as the world falls off of me, that your anointing grows and as I walk down the road, ride in my car, enter other’s dwelling places, worship areas, and in the market place that your Shekinah glory would bring salvation, deliverance and healing to those that I touch or look at.
Umbrella 1
Lord, help me to grow in your Word and to understand what I read. I pray that in the evenings when I sleep that you would speak to me through dreams and as I go throughout my day that visions would appear as I am in quiet time and communion with you.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Tim. 6:12
Lord, I pray to become a giver and that you would place wealth in my hands that I might bless others. I pray that you would provide and keep me humble in all of my affairs and opportunities to write, speak, pray, intercede and help others.
“Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” Rom. 12:21
Holy Spirit, I long to know you better and to be sensitive to your voice. I repent for ignoring you or quenching you so many times when I failed to hear your voice and obey.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor. 15:57
Jesus, I acknowlege that you died for my sins, and you are always making intercession for me in the heavenlies. Your kindness, ability to disciple and love others is beyond my ability, however I do want to be your hands and your feet in this world that you gave your life for. I thank you that you experienced such pain and suffering for me to walk in health and freedom from the sins that so easily come my way and are in my fallen nature. But, you have redeemed me and I am now a new creature ready for each new moment and divine appointment.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matt. 18:18-19
 Nevertheless
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…” Ps. 91:1-4

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17

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.

Baggs produce
My father, and  my four sons; Colt, Chris, Maverick & Gary Jr.

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

Face of God

When I was in Asia recently and looking into the faces of my two grandson’s Jonah and Hudson, I encountered total unconditional love and unspeakable joy. I observed how they cling to their mother when they are tired and hungry, but aren’t afraid to explore and be themselves in the presence of their mom and dad. When they are alone with their daddy and they run, jump, and get a little more daring in their exploration and play adventures.

They haven’t learned about the dangers and pitfalls that are outside their walls of protection. Whenever they do experience bumps, bruises or sickness, they know their mom and dad will be quick to gather them and soothe their hurts.

As one who knows the loving face of God, my desire and prayer for them is that they will grow up and experience the joy of salvation, healing and unconditional love of God.

Amy Jonah Hudson Windo

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeahRead full Lyrics Reckless Love by Cory AsburyRead full Lyrics Reckless Love by Cory Asbury

Recently Pastor Dennis, of Northgate Alaska church was teaching on the Face of God and told a story about his granddaughter Heidi, He said, “One of Heidi’s first words was Agoo.” Even though no one exactly knew what this word meant, her joy and laughter was very endearing. She recognized that she was able to totally engage and capture the hearts of her loved ones during these face to face encounters, especially with her grandfather. 

Every person is born with a “joy center” in their brain. These types of exchanges between each of us launches waves of joy and excitement and creates unforgettable memories. Face to face encounters provides a sense of love, safety and security that all children need, especially in the formative years. Both science and God’s Word tells us how important it is to stimulate and train the “joy centers” of our brains which can only come through face-to-face encounters.

During these face-to-face times of communication Jonah, Hudson, and Heidi knows they are the objects of complete panim and shalom.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
[a]And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Right-hemisphere-to-right-hemisphere communication requires face-to-face interaction between two people. Right-hemisphere-to-right-hemisphere communication is so fast it completes six cycles of communication every second. Read More

The Matsu Valley in Alaska has been recorded as the worst place to grow up in Alaska, and perhaps the State of Alaska has one if not the highest rank as being one of the worst places in the United States to bring up a child.

Northgate Burn

Northgate Alaska is one of the churches in the Mat-Su Valley who has declared war on this statistic and  has made it part of their local and global mission to create a community that is actively constructing a face to face pathway to train up and raise their children to experience a face to face relationship with the living God. They have been meeting for 18 years for a time of worship, praise, prayer and intercession for their community, state, nation and world. The group called Northgate Burn meets face to face with God each week.

Peniel, panim, is Hebrew for face or faces of God.

Scripture tells us God and Adam and Eve would meet face to face. Adam and Eve had been walking in the garden God created for them to live and meet until one day Satan disguised as a serpent came and tempted them. Genesis 3

Sin (doubt and unbelief) entered into Adam and Eve and they felt ashamed of what they had done (their sinfulness) and they hid from God. Genesis 3:8 says,

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Genesis 3 8

I thought about Heidi and how innocent she was when she was communicating with her granddaddy, saying Agoo! At these times she is totally safe in these face to face encounters.

Imagine someone coming into her life, or your life and saying, “Don’t trust him, there are things that are better for you than this, and if you experience it (or just take this bite), your life will be so much better?”

Once our innocence and trust is broken, doubt, unbelief and a host of other sinful thoughts begin to turn our joy into ungodly thoughts and eventually desires. It is difficult many times for us, like it was for Adam and Eve to understand WHY?

God does allow us and those we know and love to experience hurt, brokenness, and the effects of sin. It seems like we are unprotected.  But, God’s unconditional love for us and for mankind is always available and never negates His desire to be with us face to face.

God loves us so much He sent his son to restore a never ending life with Him. When we accept and follow His plan of redemption we are empowered to overcome sin and death in all of it’s ugly forms.

colt and kiss (1)

God’s intentions are always to restore us to this face-to-face position with him. He banished Adam and Eve from the garden, but continued to provide for them.

Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
Genesis 3:21

Vest

I don’t find it any coincidence in the story of Anna the Prophetess that her father’s name was Phanuel which means face of God.

Luke 2:35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed—and a sword will pierce your soul as well.” 36There was also a prophetess named Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, who was well along in years. She had been married for seven years, 37and then was a widow to the age of eighty-four. She never left the temple, but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.…

Anna worshiped day and night in the temple and waited, for the day she had been promised to see the Jehovah’s face. After recognizing the baby she became one of the first Christian evangelists.
She was also standing in it at that hour and she gave thanks to THE LORD JEHOVAH and was speaking about him with everyone who was waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem. Luke 2:38
Because of the fall of man, God was not going to give up on mankind. So in an instant faster than we can even imagine, He devised the plan of redemption through the second Adam, Yahushua. The Hebrew Bible uses Yehoshua (יְהוֹשֻׁעַ) for Joshua, which means “Yah is Salvation.” Christians, historians, and linguists outside the sacred name movement for the most part reject the term Yahshua (יהשע) in favor of Yeshua (ישוע) as the original pronunciation.

 And every priest stands ministering daily and
offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But this Man,
after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever,
sat down at the right hand of God,
from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.
For by one offering
He has perfected forever those who are being [d]sanctified.

Hebrews 10:11-14

When we realize we have sinned and have been sinned against, we can regain our original position God gave Adam and Eve and all mankind through the plan of salvation and redemption God provided in and through Jesus.

hammock.JPG

Coming to Jesus as a little child puts us in the same position of innocence and complete humbleness that enables us to receive eternal life, and all of the benefits of becoming His child.

What God wants from us, is a face-to face encounter.  I hear the voice of God say,

“Stop struggling, It’s time for you to trust me, and let down the walls and those hidden places of sin that separate you and I from being totally “face to face”.”

Suddenly A Great and Mighty Wind!

acceleration me

At the beginning of the year the Lord gave me three separate words for 2018. He said, “Marlene, This is the year of Acceleration (suddenlies), Fruitfulness (inheritences and lost loved ones, and wealth being restored), and a Second Wind (miracles, signs, wonders and an empowerment of the Holy Spirit to do the things we can’t do in our own strength).

I’ve been praying for individuals, (including my own family members), ministries and lost souls to begin to see God’s salvation, grace, favor and authority poured out upon them like never before.

One of the individuals who is seeing God’s love, favor and Holy Spirit poured out is Pastor Ben Lim. Below is an excerpt from an article posted in Elijah List.

Ben Lim Quote

There is a spirit of suddenlies that is overtaking the Earth. The whole Earth is being swept up in outrageous, fascinating and overwhelming creativity. The whole world is being taken away into new dimensions of God’s glory. Not only is this a spirit of acceleration, but this is the spirit of God’s suddenlies. This is the doing of the Lord.

The spirit of suddenlies is a spirit of power and promotion. However, it doesn’t just happen suddenly. It happens at a cost. It happens at a time of being connected with the Savior. Suddenlies happen, not because it’s a spontaneous happening. They happen rather because there’s been a divine preparation in the heavens and in the natural for this phenomenon. Though it may seem sudden, it actually isn’t. Though many be surprised at how sudden your promotion is, the Lord isn’t. Most of the time, the person who is experiencing the spirit of suddenlies does so because he/she has been pressing and tarrying into the very subject and matters for years. Read full word here

You can imagine my excitement to see that he would be sharing at Glory Fire Church on Friday and Saturday night at one of the fellowships I attended and regularly pray for.  Glory Fire is located in Sanford, Florida (my hometown). It is a fellowship led by Pastors David and Rhonda Raymer. I believe this is a suddenly for those who will be there to hear him speak. This just “happens” to be Shabbat & Pentecost Weekend 2018.

Keep your eye open on this weekend not only in Sanford but Central Florida and around the world!

“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4 NKJV)

Ben pastors a church in Koreatown located in the Los Angeles, California area. This is where my son Colt lives. For those in the Los Angeles area see below.

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.

Road Rocks

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.

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

“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!
