A Storm Is Brewing – Will You Listen to Men or Me?

This photo captures when we lived in Myrtle Beach preparing for Hurricane Irma in 2017. God told me a few weeks in advance of her arrival that a storm was coming, to get ready, and that we didn’t need to evacuate, but it would be intense. He said on 9/9 the storm would shift, which on 9/9 is when it took the western track up Florida’s Gulf Coast, and that even Charleston would be affected. Turns out Charleston, being on the northeast side of that ernormous hurricane was slammed with fires, tornados, and flooding. I told the Lord Jerry is never going to believe me, but He said, “I’ll take care of Jerry.” So about an hour later I summoned the courage to tell Jerry (considering I would need his cooperation to prepare) and he somberly replied, “I know, the Lord told me about an hour ago.” He’s a good, good Abba.

Consequently, we started preparing by creating a hurricane bin full of supplies and boarding up our windows. We warned our neighbors and management to not listen to weather reports but to board up the front office full of glass and the indoor pool full of glass. Meanwhile, the local weather kept saying we won’t be affected. At first, people thought we were crazy like Noah building the ark. But a few neighbors did also. Unfortunately, management listened to the weatherman and consequently most of the indoor pool’s large glass windows were blown in and shattered as well as the front office windows and glass above leaked heavily flooding the office for failure to board up. They were scrambling during the storm to board up from the inside. A small suspected tornado passed through picking up pool furniture slamming it into things, a huge wooden welcoming sign completely blew away never to be seen again, brick veneer pulled away from the building’s structure, etc. I also warned Charleston on social media prior to the storm and was called a false prophet, but I guess they realized otherwise when the city was affected.

After all that, the management/board of directors heeded my voice and eventually made me President until I called board members out on their fiscal corruption, then the deceitful campaigned to silence me and terminate me from the BOD. Funny thing is about 6 months in advance, the Lord also told me I would be President of that Board and it would be a test. Without me having to campaign or do any striving in of myself, the former President, who was resigning due to selling his condo, sent out a mass email to all the homeowners and the current Board campaigning for me to be his replacement due to my property management experience. So that is how I got to be President of the Board. The test was if I wanted the power/authority more than integrity…Would I comply to the corruption of the good ole boys or would I stand up for truth? Would I endure “the storm”..the backlash for what was right or love the title more? It was not fun being hated, but it was necessary. Even so, God used it all for me to not just fix up my condo, but we upgraded much needed areas around the entire resort as a board member. Months later, when Abba said, “List it NOW.”, we got a contract 10 days later and nearly doubled our money.

Moral of all this is :Always listen to God and refuse to care what mankind says.

The Ravens Will Feed You

As my husband and I continue to sojourn this peculiar and adventurous way following Yeshua wherever He beckons (John 10:27; Romans 8:14; Revelation 14:4), we have discovered proverbial ravens provide for us just as they did for the prophet Elijah in 1 Kings 17. We marvel, smile, laugh and glorify Abba whenever a “raven” walks up to us and freely gives us an item we had just said we needed. It’s not even something we necessarily asked Abba for, but just spoke the need out loud to each other when lo and behold, a “raven” will walk up to us either that same day or shortly thereafter and deliver to us the very item we just discussed! For example, while on a cleaning job on Wednesday, my husband said to me, we really need to get a two-step step ladder to more effectively reach and detail these higher spaces. All of which I agreed. On Friday, a fellow boater we’ve recently met, not knowing our request, walked up to us and handed us a two-step step ladder. Jerry and I just looked at each other, smiled and laughed while thanking God and this man. That is just one example. There have been many more just like that where Abba has provided us with various marine items for free like a nautical chart of this area, sailing books, a flare gun, an expensive anchor chain, along with cleaning products, essential oils, clothing, food, plastic bins, a mixing bowl, cast iron skillet and even a free Walker Bay dinghy ($$) and floating dinghy dock! If you’ve followed along our YouTube vlogs, then you’ll recall we have come to these foreign lands with little to nothing, not knowing a soul, nor what it all will look like. Nevertheless, it is amazing how we speak the need and it almost instantly manifests. Meanwhile, we have noticed Abba provides cleaning jobs for us shortly before specific bills are due allowing us the opportunity to not only responsibly pay those required expenses, but to trust and know Abba will indeed provide us daily manna (Exodus 16) or our daily bread as Yeshua/Jesus taught us to ask Abba for in Matthew 6:11. It would seem these are critical lessons to remember as we follow Yeshua for He even instructed His apostles to not worry about money or our needs, but rather take little to nothing as He calls you to sojourn or set sail (Matthew 10; Luke 12). He will command the ravens, the widows, and whomever else to serve your needs as you continue to serve Him and others by simply doing what He said to do. Complete opposite as to what the hoarding world preaches!

Moreover, we are learning just as Yeshua taught and John scribed in 1 John 3:22, whatever we ask we will receive because we respond with obedient, surrendered hearts to Abba’s commands… His Voice, which is His word!

What a YAHsome journey this has been! May our documented experiences in this faith journey foster, facilitate, and free you to follow His guiding cloud and fire as well for we can testify: If God calls you to it, surely He will provide for you through it!

Shalom and Amen.

Say What?! Negative Voices

After getting some backlash from family and friends about heeding the word of the Lord, Carrie responds in love and grace stressing the importance of obedience. Obedience to God’s ways and will for one’s life cannot earn salvation. Rather, we obey God’s commands and various invitations to love others because He first loved us..because of His grace. Loving Him and others is the fulfillment of His law. Love is obedience.
