Do not be afraid, only believe!  Luke 8:50.

Have you ever lost your peace due to unforeseen circumstances?  Have you ever felt like you were a tiny canoe on a raging ocean?  Maybe thought your spiritual house was built on sand, instead of on the Rock you thought you had?  What are you to do?  How can you calm the violent storm? 

For sometime now, I have been losing peace over our house.  Should we move?  The Lord has been quiet.  No response.  Back in 2008, Ken and I both felt like we were to put our house on the market.  Our realtor (a believer) told us she didn’t think our house would sell.  I asked her why?  She said that she didn’t feel in her spirit that God was really going to have us move.  That was confirmation as we felt the same thing, but in obedience to what we heard, we listed the home.  After about 7 months on the market, many showings later, we got an almost full-price offer in 6/2009 (that was unheard of if you remember the major housing market crash in 2008).    We accepted the offer and countered the closing date.  They verbally had accepted that and were to bring the contract back the next day.  They came back, but they didn’t leave the contract.  Matter of fact, they vanished.  Their realtor vanished, they vanished into thin air and that was that.  The next month, Ken felt the Lord said to take the house off the market when the listing expired in August.  So we did.  In the meantime, the Lord sent us to a conference where He had us pray for a couple we did not know.  And to make a very long story short, but a super duper cool God story, He had us invite this couple to live with us for 4 months.   They moved in the day our house went off the market. They were from out of town but here in KC for medical treatment.  And after they moved out, just a couple months later, God brought another person to live with us for about a year – to minister healing to them. 

Over the years since we lived in this home, we have hosted small groups, house church, prophetic & healing ministry meetings and have had 1000’s of folks come through.   We have housed and fed numerous guests as the Lord has brought them!  It has been such a pleasure. 

The Lord has spoken directly to us and through many others – specific words, destiny and calling that “seemingly” relate to this particular home.  Even so much as blueprints for a home addition to accommodate even more ministry and guests. There have been so many words and confirmations!  

But…something may be changing….. we have lost our peace, mostly as provision has almost dried up.  I have been out of work for 4 years due to serious health issues and Ken for 2 years as the Lord instructed and confirmed.  Mostly he has been taking care of me, but also as we both felt called into ministry – home ministry and chaplain in the workplace.  Those unfortunately are not paying the bills as we thought.  It’s been pretty rough….. quite frankly. 

In June, I prayed and asked the Lord to provide some wisdom through some friends who were coming to lunch the next day.  They have been walking in “Supernatural Provision  for 30+ years.  And the Lord in His faithfulness spoke directly to them so they were prepared when they came over.  We had told them a bit about our circumstances and they felt comfortable that we had done and were doing all we could in the natural to supplement our finances.  They mentioned a good next step would be to put out a fleece before the Lord.   So we prayed and asked the Lord to help us with the fleece.  What we want most is to be in God’s will.   We want to be where God wants us to be.  I can’t go into detail about the fleece other than the first sign that we were to put the house back on the market came through just last week.  So… that is exactly what we are doing.  Our house will be officially listed for sale the end of next week.  This time, the same realtor, has a strong feeling that our house will sell quickly and what she felt it would sell for is what the Lord showed Ken exactly!  Wow!! 
Part of the fleece also has a clause in it that IF God would show up with two very specific radical signs, that would be enough for us to believe that we are to stay.  Even the worst skeptic would know God was in it.  Again, we are only wanting to be in the center of God’s will.  It’s completely up to Him. 

We are both a bit overwhelmed and confused.  A bit nervous! And very excited! 

Overwhelmed - because there is much to do to get the house marketable.  Most of this will fall on Ken and anyone who wants to help.  Thank God for his parents who are helping! 

Confused – because what do you do with all the prophetic words, things you feel the Lord has spoken that seem to relate to this home….and now we are possibly moving.   Will we have the ability to keep doing what we are doing, are we moving into a new season of completely new things or does God have a more accommodating home for us to do all of it???? So many questions and again NO answers!   We are not attached to this home…..just that we thought there was the destiny here in this home and property???

Nervous – because God is being silent.  Unusually silent.  We have no idea for sure if we are literally moving, where we will move to or how we will qualify.  What seems impossible for us, well we are asking will God do the impossible.  We have NO income so we cannot rent unless God provides a landlord who is ok with that (and 2 dogs).   We cannot buy, again NO income and not enough equity to purchase a suitable home. 

Excited – because we know God is in this and He always exceeds our expectations – and even more than we can hope or imagine, right?   He always leads us into triumph!!

Two weeks ago, the Lord told me to teach our home group about meditating on His Word and to have us all choose or let the Lord highlight Scripture to meditate on.  He was showing us the importance of getting the Word in our heart and not just in our minds.  Now of course, we all “know” that, but persuading your heart to know that you know the truth takes much effort!   Little did I know that the verse I included at the top of this post, was the first one He would show me.  This little verse, Do not be afraid, only believe has been one I have spoken and rehearsed 100’s of times in just two weeks.  Some due to health issues…but also because it’s just been under a week since we made the decision to put our house on the market.  The very day we decided to list our house, the Lord gave me this verse and it is starting to go deep into my heart. 

Exodus 15:13 – Your unfailing love will lead those You have redeemed.
 Your strength will guide them to Your holy dwelling.  (Emphasis Mine)

Praise God He loves us and He will lead us….especially since He is quiet and the hallways are very dark right now.  Praise God His strength will guide us because I have no strength to do this.  This is far more than I can handle physically and even emotionally without His grace and mercy.  Halleliuah He is guiding us to His holy “dwelling”.  That means wherever we go will be His perfect will. 

One final verse the Lord spoke to someone for me yesterday... and it relates to “dwelling” again and the Rock!  Thank YOU Jesus! He is my Rock! 

Psalm 27:4-5 One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: 
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
 to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.   For in the day
 of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; 
In the secret place of His tent he will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock!  (Emphasis Mine)

About us:

Ministry - 
Ken and I love to pray for folks who need a touch from the Lord - with words of encouragement, words of knowledge and a healing touch.  If you are someone in need, please let us know.  We also have a passion to activate and influence believers to walk in radical obedience to a fun and wonderful God!  There is just nothing like it!  

If you are interested in Ken and I coming to minister to you, your small group or church, or go on a "treasurehunt" with us, please give us a call or email.  We would be delighted to!

Prayer requests: 
Please continue to pray for Michele's improvement in health, especially mental & physical energy.  She is boldy declaring God's Truth and know that He will bring her into complete healing in her body.  

Pray for clarity and timing on a few mission trips we are being led to.  (Health has to improve)   
God is our Jehovah-Jireh... and He has called us to a journey of faith for provision, in this season.  It is truly by your faithfulness and obedience to the Holy Spirit's prompting that our needs are being met.  Thank YOU.   Please pray for us as it is a difficult walk - teaching us a much deeper trust.  
Business - 
Our LLC is official - Want InSight Chaplain Services.  God has brought us a business coach to help us and we are excited to see how that goes.  We still have many things that need to be done, logo design, website, etc.... waiting on God to provide the resources and further direction.  

In the meantime,  would you please help us?  Do you know of an employer who often experiences high absenteeism due to the employees having personal issues?  Or maybe has little employee engagement due to struggles on or off the job?  We can help with that.  
We are looking for companies who truly care about their employees and want to offer a business enrichment program that can increase productivity, improve employee and employer morale and provide a safe and emotionally health work environment.  If you know of someone who may be interested, would you be willing to give us an introduction?    We are determined and blessed to have this opportunity to create a cultural change in the workplace!

If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support what we are doing financially, below are a few options.  Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.
