Happy New Year!! Can you help?

Happy New Year from the Cole's!

 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.  Isaiah 43:19 

 

Last time I blogged was about the benefits of covid.  During that time, I felt the Lord told me it was time to leave the job I was doing (remote for an insurance office).   I worked there for 1.5 years and had the best boss ever.  I mean that.  He was so accommodating when I wasn't feeling well, we had a great friendship and could count on each other.   I felt like the Lord told me I was to leave and that something new would open up.   Something that I could do (since I am still experiencing fatigue, brain fog and lack of energy - possibly covid long haul)  It also could be my thyroid.  Too long of story, but thyroid numbers are way out of whack, a bazillion symptoms that are related to that.  So I am pretty restricted with what I can do and not do and working a job that requires specific hours doesn't fit right now.  

Can you help?  

I had mentioned that I started working with Thrive Life again.  This is the only door God has opened for me at this time.   It is a long term food storage and easy meal prep kind of company.  Freeze Dried foods - and the best quality I've ever tasted - and I have tasted quite a few over the years.   With little effort, I was able to have a small tasting party and sign up 5 consultants.  That got me launched.  All of them are excited and as a team we are going to be sitting in grocery stores, having booths at the local gun shows and other events so we can introduce this product and company to others.  If you are interested in learning more, send me an email and I'll be happy to chat with you.  You can also visit my website at https://michelecole.thrivelife.com.     

Here's a little information about why it might be a good idea to have some Thrive Life food......

1.  It’s real food!  It’s fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, etc - picked (if applicable) at perfect ripeness and is freeze dried.  There are no additives or preservatives (except in speciality items, like yogurt bites & prepared meals - all listed on website. 

2.  There is NO waste.  How many times have you bought broccoli or a head of cauliflower and it turned brown before you were able to use up?  When you open a can of Thrive, you use what you need, close it up and put it in your pantry to use again when needed.  

3.  Are you called to the “mission field”.   Thrive pantry cans are a perfect size to take with you overseas.  You can east most right out of the can or hydrate for a meal.   Another great idea is for those who love to camp - or have lake homes - who wants to do all the prep work for your meal when you're trying to have a relaxing vacation?  

4.  How many of you have kids?  Snackies or other product kids love!  Kids will actually eat the fruits and vegetables right out of the can!  Seriously! 

5. Convenience!   How many of you have tried to make an omelet or a soup and are missing an ingredient or two?  What about milk?  If you have Thrive on hand, you will always have ingredients for that perfect meal.   Thrive, there is no washing and cleaning your food, no chopping, just measure & use!!!!  

6.  Fresh - do you know that the food coming from grocery stores, say grapes, come from overseas.  They pick them long before they are ripe, so they don’t have all the nutrients.  Thrive is picked at the height of perfection and immediately sent to be freeze dried!  And you don’t know where or what the farmers use to grow them.  Thrive Life has their own farms and their own freeze driers to ensure quality and freshness. 

7.  Gluten Free - because our product is fresh picked & freeze dried with no additives, most items are gluten free.  Some of our products are organic.  

8. Long Term Food Storage - of course, this is one of the main reasons.  Peace of mind is important!  Both Homeland Security and American Red Cross tell you to have at least 3 days to 1 year of food and water.  If there was a crisis, earthquake, tornado, flooding, would you be prepared?  With Thrive, as I mentioned, you can eat right from the can, so if you lost power, you still wouldn’t starve or have to build a fire.  Of course, if you do build a fire and are able to cook, then making meals will be even easier with Thrive.  

I am also still looking for Facebook Marketing work.  I have one account that I am still working with, but unfortunately is not enough to make up for the income we need.  If you are looking to have someone schedule some posts for your business or ministry, let me know.  I went through 40+ hours of training and have 30+ years sales and marketing experience.  I have had huge success in creating more exposure, and business.    Facebook Marketing is something I can do and schedule posts when I have energy so not to hinder who I might be marketing for.   

Prayer & praise reports
Ken is still working for Landis Painting and mostly keeps a full time schedule.  During the winter it is extra hard finding inside jobs..... this year so far ok as we have many people moving into the valley remodeling their new homes.   He is staying healthy.

I am hanging in there.  Really trying to find the right health protocol to get my thyroid balanced out.  The labs are like a roller coaster as we (my nurse practitioner) and I try to find the best combination/dosage of thyroid rx and supplements.   My sleep is still very much affected and pain levels are still unbearable most days.  I did start a new supplement and got 2 good weeks of some relief of pain and improved sleep.... but for some reason it is not as effective now. ?  Praising God for what I did get.  

Please pray God opens a door for provision/income for me.  

We are enjoying hosting and leading our Upper Room Fellowship.  God continues to bring new people and soon we will outgrow this place....  so we are hoping and praying and believing and contending that the provision for the vision will come soon.  

We lost 3 good friends recently and we still have one friend in the hospital fighting for her life.  I am grieving hard for each of these families.   

We are thankful for those of you who pray for us and reach out to us.  If I can pray for you please feel free to email me.

Vision
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

The Perks of Covid!

Romans 8:28 -And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.    


It has been a very long time since I blogged.  I wanted to send out just a quick update.

Just over 3 weeks ago, I got sick.  I got really sick.  Fever for 9 days in a row, not a lick of energy - mental or physical, lost my taste (which was totally fine as I was drinking some of the nastiest immune boosters and taking Ivermectin, antibiotics and steroids (which I have to crush and take in a spoon).   I never got tested, but I definitely had all the symptoms of Covid.   

I would not wish this on anyone.....however.... there was a purpose in it all. 

I asked God why I was getting it when I have been around many people who tested positive within a day or so of them being at our house.... and I never got it in the past 2 years.   I feel He said that because I was around a few people who just got vaccinated, I was getting sick because of the "shedding symptoms" coming from them.  Yikes!  I knew that was a possibility, but I unfortunately did not know that these people were recently vaccinated.  I would have stayed away.   Secondly, I felt like He said the reason He allowed me to get so sick and for so long.......was because we He wanted me to have the natural antibodies.  He said that another "virus" was being released and it would be worse than this.  

Now before you all get upset over the effectiveness of vaccines and the risks, etc..... I feel everyone should have a choice on what they put in their body.  So if you feel the vaccine is for you, then great.  If you don't, then great!    I have done tons of research and have spoke to many doctors, nurses and other medical and non medical health practitioners and I personally feel not to do the vaccine.  My choice!! 

The benefits of covid - well like I said losing my taste helped with all the nasty concoctions I was taking   The other huge benefit was that I slept.  I slept 10-12-16 hours even - was in bed 24 hours a day for the first 2 weeks and then still sleeping into week 3.   So much so, that I just can't get out of bed until 10 or later.  I do a few things and then back to bed.  The crushing fatigue both physical and mental is not fun. I am praising God however for sleep!!!!!!!!      I'm improving, but I am still not up to par.   I have missed 3 weeks of work....and now am feeling like the Lord is telling me that job is done.   I am talking with my boss and seeing about doing marketing for him instead of the responsibilities I was doing.  It was just too much - trying to be 3 full time people workload in just 25 hours.   I just can't commit to any consistent hours as I am still recovering......but also because I feel like it's a new chapter.  My boss has been amazing and understanding.  It's up to God what happens there!  

I do feel like the Lord is wanting me to start doing Thrive Life again.  Thrive Life is the 25 year shelf life food - long term food storage.   I signed up as a consultant and you can look at my website if you are interested in it at all.  Https://michelecole.thrivelife.com.   This past weekend I had a small tasting party, there were 6 of us.   4 of them signed up to be consultants because they saw the value of the product.  Also, as a consultant they will get paid to buy food and will receive credits as well.  Wow!  

The price of food in the grocery stores are going up up up!  This is a great way to stock up on food in case our shelves become empty.  Haven't you noticed the grocery store shelves are getting less and less items.  Crazy times we live in.    

The other exciting news is that with the help of a local Nurse Practitioner = I am weaning of thyroid meds (which I felt the Lord told me I was being over-medicated on)  and so far doing quite well.  That also may be a part of sleeping some.   

Ken is still painting and doing well. He did not get sick - thankfully!   

We are still actively and anxiously awaiting God's provision for the vision.  We have met some incredible people with similar visions and others who may join us once we have a property.   We started a home fellowship and that has been amazing too!  God is so good!


Please let us know how we can pray for you.   Thank you for your ongoing friendship!!!  

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19

Where Are YOU Lord?

God, where are YOU?  Words from a sleep deprived person.....

I have nothing left in me.  There is no hope for the promises.  Are they really yes and amen?  Do you hear the prayers of many saints and me asking for healing, for freedom from pain and sleep deprivation?  Do you know what sleep deprivation does to a person's emotions, the torment, the anxiety, the panic attacks?  Do you Lord?  Doesn't Your Word say you give sleep to Your Beloved?  You've called me that for years...and yet no sleep comes, 17 years of little to NO sleep.  What should I believe in this case, I don't know anymore?  You promise healing in Your Word.  It's part of the full package of salvation (sozo - healing of mind, body and soul) and yet for 37 years one thing after another.  I cry out to you.  Others pray on my behalf.  I've lost so many friends over this.  People get tired of praying for me.  Who can blame them.  I get tired of asking You and asking others to pray.  What's the point?   You say you honor the faith of others but where's the proof of that?  It's affecting my ability to work, function, hope, believe, have any motivation, desire for anything?  I'm thankful my boss is understanding, but it's not fair to him. It seems all I do is apologize to him for not being able to work fully.   He's a great guy and he has his own health issues and relies on me.  I pray for him.. and yet he still suffers.  

I have a good friend who has gone through decades of intense pain - fortunately she sleeps.  But her pain levels have been ridiculous.  She has battled cancer  over the past year or two and thought she overcame and now she is battling it again and the doctors are only giving her months to live.   She doesn't want to talk to anyone. I don't know what she is feeling.  I can't console her.  I pray for her often  and I know many others are too.  And yet, no relief.  She's trusted you for her healing and yet it doesn't come.  Maybe in heaven...and I long for that day soon IF You won't heal her here on earth.  I cry out often for her.  What does that really do?  

I have a friend who is in miserable shape because she can't eat much.  Very few calories and not the ones that will allow her to put weight back on. She's desperate.  She's in my prayers day and night for years now.  She is so thankful for my prayers and the encouraging words You give me for her, yet no relief in sight.  Desperate for her healing to manifest.  

I could go on and on for ALL those I am praying for - that I feel You've called me to pray for.  There are too many to list.  Where are you Lord?? 

Many are believing You for the promise You have spoken to them and what you say in Your Word... and yet will we ever see them manifest "in the land of the living"?   Will we God?   

You've made my brain to pick up on patterns - and I see sooooooooooo many suffering or contending for something that only YOU can do!!   Some are trusting YOU for healing of their body, for finances for everyday life, for reconciliation of relationships, for prodigals and more.  ONLY YOU LORD!   And the million dollar question - the question I'd be wealthy if only I knew the answer is "Where are you LORD?  Why are you not setting the captives free from whatever they need set free from?  

What about the children?  The poor children that are taken to satisfy the evil wicked people in this dark ugly world.  What about the sex trafficking victims.  The numbers are staggering of how many kids and women are taken for things too disgusting to mention?  What about all the evil - the racism that continues to be fueled by the left agenda.  What about the hate? The LGBTQ agenda.  The small percentage of people are influencing the masses?    Where are You? 


My prayer for me - and others!!

Psalm 142

A maskil of David. When he was in the cave. A prayer.

I cry aloud to the Lord;

    I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.

I pour out before him my complaint;

    before him I tell my trouble.

When my spirit grows faint within me,

    it is you who watch over my way.

In the path where I walk

    people have hidden a snare for me.

Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;

    no one is concerned for me.

I have no refuge;

    no one cares for my life.

I cry to you, Lord;

    I say, “You are my refuge,

    my portion in the land of the living.”

Listen to my cry,

    for I am in desperate need;

rescue me from those who pursue me,

    for they are too strong for me.

Set me free from my prison,

    that I may praise your name.

Then the righteous will gather about me

    because of your goodness to me.


Where are you Lord? Come to our rescue!  Deliver Your people from these afflictions.  Manifest Your promises?  Our hope is in You - but where are You? 


God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 

Just so you know - this is sleep deprivation talking?  When I get 5 hours once in a great moon, I cope, my spirits are better, my faith is strong, etc.    I am thankful for those rare nights! 

It's always darkest before dawn..... 

Prayer Requests.

Ken is painting - and it's taking a toll on him physically. He's so wiped out coming home and has little energy for much.  Please pray for his stamina, energy and endurance..   He is even having some sleep changes.  He's not getting as much as he's used too.  

Ministry - prayer for more opportunities as that does lift our spirits and give us purpose.  And for provision for the vision - we are so ready to move into what God has called us too.  

I'm not going to ask for me - because it's the same ole same ole. If you feel led to pray, great.  But if you do only please pray in the spirit and ask God's will be done.  I don't want conflicting prayers.  

We have need for a car.  Ken's car is really on it's last leg.  We have a friend from church who has offered us their 2012 Subaru - for only $3000.... and is holding it for us for a short while.  We just don't have the resources.  So maybe not God's will?? We pray and ask God to make it clear.  

Thank you for your friendship and care and prayers even if God isn't answering them!

If we can pray for you please feel free to reach out.  We are so thankful for those that continue to pray for us.   You have no idea how much that touches my heart and demonstrates God's love!  Thank YOU!

I AM!


God said to Moses, I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’ Exodus 3:14  

The other day in my quiet time.  I was crying.  I was crying out pleading with the Lord on many subjects!  

Before I could just sit and intentionally listen for His response to my never ending questions...   I immediately heard this resounding voice speak to me, "I AM"!   


It was straight to the point!  

It was firm and yet tender. 

It was commanding but gentle. 

It was simple but yet profound.  

It was kind and yet convicting.  

Most of all, it was EFFECTIVE!  

An excerpt taken from www.chicagobible.org - 

The Hebrew words in Exodus 3:14 for “I AM THAT I AM” are ehyeh asher ehyeh which should more accurately be translated “I will be what I will be” or as Rotherham translates it, “I will become whatsoever I may become.”  This expression in Exodus 3:14 is an idiom, an expression that has a meaning that cannot be understood by the individual words.  So, what does “I AM THAT I AM” mean?

By using the translation “I will become whatsoever I may become,” we see the relationship of this phrase to Yahweh – “He who becometh.”  They both use the word “become.” The use of ehyeh asher ehyeh in Exodus 3:14 was God’s way of assuring and pledging to Moses and Israel that God would become whatever they needed Him to become.   

This promise found in the name of God can be extended to the world of mankind. God will become what they need Him to become – an architect for the plan of salvation that will bring them back into harmony with Him.  In the case of the heavenly church, God will be all we need to make our calling and election sure.

--

Well, that sums it up for me, how about you?  What do you need God to become for you?

Healer - Deliverer - Provider - Restorer - Father - Husband - Spouse -  Comforter - Counselor - Leader - Life Source - You pick! 


That answer "I AM" is all encompassing - all sufficient and all that is needed!  

There are so many beautiful souls that are hurting, lost and broken. Some fellow believers who have been through an intense season of long suffering in one way or another.  There are those that don't know the Lord (even some that do)  that are being led further and further from the Truth.   It's time for the Church to come out of it's slumber and BECOME who God designed us to be.  And yet, there are hinderances or things keeping us from that.   We need God to be the Great I AM and release us from all that keeps us from this!  


                              What do you need God to become for YOU?

                              What will it take for YOU to step fully into His call on your life? 

                              

Prayer and Praise! 

Ken is still painting and thankful that there has been close to full time work (indoors).  We have had a mild winter up until February, when it all seemed to hit at once.  We've had probably a foot of snow with another 3-6" coming over the next couple days.. our temps have been decent until now too...we are going to see -20 to -30 wind chills today with actual temps in the - digits.  With temps this low, Ken uses my car since his doesn't have heat or defrost AT all.  Please pray for God to provide a reliable AWD vehicle for Ken (with heat & defrost & snow tires)    Pray for him as he travels all over the valley for safety on the slick roads.  Pray for his endurance.  It's a lot of physical labor up and down ladders.   He's able but he's not wired for this.    

Michele - Same ole, same ole - prayer for healing please.  I have some decent days but pain levels are still mostly unbearable.  Sleep is hit or miss -and sometimes not at all which takes a huge toll on me.  I am thankful for my boss who provides great grace when I am hitting the wall.   I am working part time - 25-30 hours a week remotely for an insurance agent in KC.  Funny I come to Montana to find work in KC.  But it's a good fit overall.  Please pray for the stamina and mental energy as it can be exhausting especially with pain and limited sleep.  

Ministry - We are still contending and believing God for the provision to build the vision.  We are seeing amazing connections with others with similar visions and/or people who want to come alongside us and be part of this.  I love it!  We are continuing to have people for meals and minister to people.  We have become counsel for a few people here which is rewarding.  Please pray for provision to come!   Please pray for continued opportunities to minister and bless others.  


If we can pray for you please feel free to reach out.  We are so thankful for those that continue to pray for us.   You have no idea how much that touches my heart and demonstrates God's love!  Thank YOU!

Sharing a post from a friend who I thought was pretty encouraging!

Recalculating for 2021?

Don’t you love it? You miss a turn using your GPS maps program, and it’ll give you grace for a little bit. But pretty soon, you’ll hear that word: “Recalculating…” And if you don’t follow instructions soon enough, you’ll hear the words repeat again and again: “Recalculating…recalculating…”

There’s little doubt that 2020 feels a little like we missed a turn. Things seemed to be going along fine—the economy, the markets, a spirit of prosperity. And then a seeming series of wrong turns occurred. COVID-19. A global pandemic declared. Lockdowns, shelter-in-place, economic and market freefall.

Moses and Israelites "Recalculating" memeBut I wonder if in all those wrong turns you heard God say, “Recalculating?” Or perhaps more rightly, the encouragement should be for us to recalculate—to consider what lessons we might draw from these events, and accordingly ask for direction for the future.

Recently, I listened to a message from Michael Jr. where he offered some helpful questions as we contemplate 2020 and look forward to 2021:

  1. What problem am I trying to solve? What are the needs and hurts that I see around me? What are the problems in my path? Place less emphasis on “my calling” and more on the problems around me.
  2. Who are the people [I’ve been given]? Look around—see the people in your life—family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, people along your path. 
  3. What can I give? What can I do about the problems in front of me with the people that are in my path? Perhaps it’s finances. Perhaps it is a talent I can employ? Perhaps it is my presence—being a listening ear? Or perhaps it is just an encouraging word?

As we close out 2020, here’s a great reflective quote from John Piper from his book Don’t Waste Your Life:

The really wonderful moments of joy in this world are not the moments of self-satisfaction, but self-forgetfulness. Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and contemplating your own greatness is pathological. At such moments we are made for a magnificent joy that comes from outside ourselves

Praise & Prayer 

Thanking the Lord for good health.  Ken and I have both stayed healthy this year for which I am thankful.  I pray you all have been too!!  And if not, please let me know so I can be praying for you.  

Thanking the Lord for sustaining us financially.  Ken's work hours are not consistent with winter fast approaching here.  I have been able to pick up a few additional work hours and am thankful for the job and my boss.  He is probably the best employer I've ever worked for.   I am also trying to pick up some additional Facebook Marketing...so if you know of anyone.  Or I will get paid if you buy artwork from www.stevewilsonart.com and mention my name... that you saw his stuff on Facebook Steve Wilson Art.  Him and his wife Cathy are great friends here in the Valley....and he is quite talented! Pretty well known in these parts!   He does commissions and can do just about anything!!    Check him out! 

Thanking God that we are days closer to stepping into the vision He has for us. Though we are not seeing it manifested in the natural, we know that He is at work behind the scenes.  There are many great connections we are making!

Thanking God for our move to Montana.  We are so thankful to be living in such a beautiful state.  I don't think I will ever get tired of looking at the mountains.  And now with snow caps, they are even more stunning.  Fortunately, we have no snow on the ground.  When it does snow it's a quick melt due to higher elevation and when the sun is out, it evaporates!  (Ask me again in Jan-March) when snow falls should be higher.  It's been a mild winter so far... comparable to KC.  

My sister Jackie is here visiting - she made an impromptu trip - her son was passing through here and so she came to see him briefly and then is staying with us for the next 10 days.  She even brought me some KC treats! Yea!   

What are you thankful for this year?   

If we can pray for you please feel free to reach out.  We are so thankful for those that continue to pray for us.   You have no idea how much that touches my heart and demonstrates God's love!  Thank YOU!

Vision
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
