Staying @ Home on the Boat During the Coronavirus

I have been enjoying my free time on the boat during this pandemic. In addition to gardening and learning to hybridize roses (cross-breed), I have finally gotten the name of our boat put on the back (the stern) as well as on the port (left) side and starboard (right) side of our boat. Yesterday, a friend came over and taught us how to open our sails and what all the lines (ropes) do when opening, trimming, and closing the sails properly. Basically, we sailed within our slip (where we are docked). Ha ha! Below are some videos and photos of what we have been doing during the coronavirus pandemic.

A strong gust of wind caused our boat to list or heel to the port side even while in the slip. Always keeping us on our toes! 🙂
Sailing in our slip! Lol
Our main sail has the hull number of our boat #5492 on it. I like to think of these numbers as Isaiah 54 and Psalm 92. They are perfect for who God made me be as a worshipper and all that He has taught me on this faith journey!

From Burning Bush To Bush Overboard, G-d Speaks

Many peculiar things manifested this past week in Carrie’s life. From a confirming prophetic word to a freak storm and the explosion at Exxon’s refinery plant, could Abba be trying to communicate something? Could He be burning up things in Carrie’s life having her let go of somethings so He can have her focus on more important matters or take her into new realms in and with Him?

Ironically enough, a section of this week’s Torah portion hints at “kashering by fire” or being purified by fire before entering G-d’s presence or coming into the camp (Numbers 19, Numbers 31, 1 Corinthians 3). Our vessels need to be purified and that is what Abba seems to be doing in His people. Notice the passage of 1st Kings 18 prophecized over Carrie in worship services recently not only confirms what Abba has been prompting Carrie to do ( to “release” or call out false prophets…as well as perhaps “release” more beloved things to the L-rd), but moreover, speaks to being purified or consumed by G-d’s holy fire. When true prophets are purified by His Spirit, G-d grants them the authority to call down fire or put another way, change the atmosphere for G-d’s Spirit of Holiness is about transformation.

Leading others, teaching others, and or operating in true prophetic realms, is a heavy responsibility…Those who dare to do so should expect to be purified by Abba’s fire as He tosses things overboard through His holy wind.

Vlog: Serving God & Others Has It’s Perks

(Recorded Mar 1, 2019) Carrie and Jerry are amazed at all Abba (God/YHVH) has done..providing for their needs yet again in this foreign new land! While on a walk in this video, they not only explore a new-to-them neighborhood, but have the opportunity to pray for someone. Through it all, they once again discover serving God and others has it’s perks! Abba takes care of His kids by providing not only for their needs, but blessing them with extra perks too. As reported in previous videos that Abba said to Carrie a few weeks ago, “Just do what I tell you do, and I’ll do the rest.” He’s a good, good, Father! Have faith in whatever He asks YOU to do!
