Much Has Transpired

Since the last time I posted, much has transpired. Due to Hurricane Florence, we had to evacuate Myrtle Beach and our beach condo settlement date was postponed by a week. Nevertheless, God was in control and the delayed timing actually worked to our advantage (Romans 8:28). Turns out, our delayed settlement led to an even more affordable sailboat available to purchase. If you are new to this blog or my Flip Flop Fellowship YouTube channel, we listed our beach condo in order to purchase and liveaboard a sailboat. The Catalina MKii I had been closely watching online dropped in price by several thousand dollars making her even more affordable while awaiting our delayed settlement!

I could go on and go about all that has happened these last few weeks. In fact, you can watch for yourself. Be sure to subscribe to our Flip Flop Fellowship channel on YouTube to get caught up on all that has transpired in recent weeks. Since we moved on from Myrtle Beach, we are now making Season 2.  Feel free to click here to Binge watch and get caught up on all the Lord is doing in this Spirit-led journey!

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.

We Are Moving!

In October 2017, the Lord invited Jerry and Carrie to follow Him to a distant land… To find out to where, to do what, and the backstory of how it all went down, watch the video and be sure to subscribe to our blog and YouTube channel to follow along in this latest adventure!

Opportunities To Love

After a few months of social media sabbatical, Flip Flop Fellowship is back!

Throughout the busy summer months as well as into the fall of 2017 and early winter, many unique opportunities to love others manifested in the lives of Carrie and Jerry. From Houston, Texas to a local half-way house, Carrie and Jerry have been blessed to serve others in various capacities. Check out the video to get caught up…

 

Happy Fourth of July @ the beach!

Carrie brings you a brief word of encouragement from the shores of Myrtle Beach on the Fourth of July.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3:17

What Are The Chances? I Found Her!

What would be the chances of finding a dark-skinned gal named LaTonya or LaToya, with a nickname of “Toto” on Memorial Day weekend in Myrtle Beach on the street corner across from where I live? 1 in million! Seemingly impossible, right? I was beginning to think so too.

But just when Memorial Day was coming to a close and as I was feeling like a failure in my God-appointed assignment, lo and behold, “LaToya” appears right in front of me..precisely where God showed me in my vision! Watch the video to find out what happened!! A memorable Memorial Day indeed!

Check out Carrie’s previous videos for the full backstory “The Scary Assignment” and “Stepping Out In Faith – Where is LaTanya or LaToya?”.

 

In Over My Head

If I had to pick just one song to capture this season of my life here at the beach, it would be “In Over My Head” by Bethel Music. Since relocating to Myrtle Beach, temporarily alone, I find myself tumbling in the undertow of a Spirit-led life, which is ironic considering I actually did get caught up in a wave’s undertow as a child right here at Myrtle Beach. Now living here, the Spirit of Christ has His grip on me as He rips me from the safe shores of religion. Surely, His goodness and mercy frees me. Upon surrendering to His doing, or shall I say undoing, I then find myself floating in Christ’s abundantly fluid love while He teaches me to trust and rest in His love and the current He is taking me in. The freedom and depth in and of His love are as deep and wide as the sea that surrounds me. Truly, I am in over my head.

I invite you to watch this lyric video produced by Bethel Music. Perhaps this is the song I should be learning to play in this season by the sea…
