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,

Help! I’ve Been Arrested!

speed fines double

I was recently traveling and had just pulled into a McDonalds to take a bathroom break.  I had been praying and listening to the radio all morning. During this past season I’ve been alone a lot except for when I’m doing ministry or helping someone in crisis or trauma. I also love being a road warrior because it is during these times that God gives me nuggets to chew on and even whole chapters of my book I’m writing.

There are times more often than not recently that I desperately miss and cherish the family and friends that are so important to me.  So I drive along and pray for those that I can’t see, touch or feel. It is in these times I also realize how important I am to my heavenly Father and that He does miss me when I get too busy or neglect my time with Him.

I know there are things the Lord wants me to do, but more so He wants me to be honest with Him and with myself.  This discipline really takes me getting into a quiet place and trusting Him. In order to increase my faith, He has been stretching me it seems like in every area of my life!

The Lord has ALWAYS come through and has ALWAYS been faithful.  The older and grayer I get my weak knees grow weary on waiting and then that devil of fear and anxiousness try to drown out God’s voice. It just so happened that Adrian Rogers was teaching on one of my favorite scriptures.

We Will Be Saved Out of This World
1 Peter 1:7-9 says, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”

He spoke on God’s refining fire and how everything in us will be tested at times. I know from experience when I feel anxious, useless, unproductive, and lonely that seems to be the exact time God allows Satan to test my faith.

“Lord let me be content not doing or seeing anything.” I then heard Him speak softly to my spirit, You don’t have to do anything for my favor or love, just be with Me and follow Me. I love you. Rest… I’ve arrested you!

Right after I came out out of the bathroom and was just pulling out of McDonalds, I looked down and my phone was ringing. Now I happen to have an app on my phone that tells callers that I can’t answer because I am in my car driving. I was surprised at it ringing.

At first glance it was an unknown number and I honestly thought it must be another solicitor trying to sell me an auto warranty. Mind you I have over 230,000 miles on my car and the only warranty is the one My heavenly Father provides! Recently this even got tested when several “alert” lights came on! But, need I say, even whenever I get arrested by the warning lights; God is and always will be my provider.

I looked again and saw the name Lemoine, and pulled back into the parking space at Mcdonalds. Beverly is another minister I had met two years earlier at our fellowship conference. She lives and works in Mississippi and has an outreach ministry named Come As You Are. The first thing she said, “Marlene this is Beverly Lemoine, do you remember me? Your name and face came across my mind like one of those electronic signs! How would you like to go to Tanzania with me next year and help with an international women’s conference?”

I think I was just arrested!

So, the exciting news is we will be doing a Freedom PowWow and will be ministering next May 2019 for three weeks to women and pastor’s wives in Tanzania Africa.

I will be sending out more details as they come in but I am asking for help in making this conference great for these women! We are writing a five-day curriculum and already have 200 New Testaments donated that are in Swahili.

In the meantime I’m being led to find a place to study, pray and write. I have a couple of places in mind, but I’m waiting on the Lord to open up the perfect place. Please pray and agree with me that I will wait patiently!
