                                                                                                                                           (picture taken by
Isaiah 54:10 "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, 
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,"
 says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

Has the Lord ever surprised you with a retreat vacation - all at His expense?  In April, the Lord had been prompting me to pray for a retreat getaway.  No seriously, He did.  I knew that we couldn't afford a trip, unless He was in it, so I just began to pray as I felt led.  In May, some friends of ours offered us a week stay at their condo in Colorado and said we could use it any time.  They said it would make a good "retreat".  Hmmm, was God really going to give us this trip?  I continued to pray and then more starting falling into place.  My sister, offered us some points to use for a rental vehicle.  When we booked the vehicle, we reserved a Jeep Cherokee - we needed room for 4 people, coolers and suitcases.  On a side note, when we went to pick up the vehicle, we got upgraded to a Nissan Armada.  Wow!!! God even provided us with the gas money.  What a good and perfect gift from the Lord! 

Ok.. so the reason I told you all this is because, while we were in the mountains, the Lord was beginning to show me of things to come. (Isaiah 42:9) The verse I listed above, is one He gave me for two reasons.  The first just to give me peace.  I was really struggling with my health, my adrenals had crashed on the drive there and I also experienced some altitude sickness.  And two, I sensed He was showing me something was going to happen in Colorado.  I just didn't know what.  I began to intercede.  

For the next month after we got back, I kept hearing about people going to the Colorado mountains.  It seemed like everybody I knew or every post I saw on Facebook, mentioned a trip to Colorado.  I asked the Lord did that have meaning?  I felt a strong burden for the people in the mountains, for the valleys below, but I still didn't have clarity on what might happen.  

And... then the floods happened!  Wow!  My heart was breaking for the different stories that were unfolding, people trapped in the mountains because roads and bridges completely wiped out, some may not have access to come down the mountain until mid - late October and that they were already looking at food rationing.  (Are you prepared for such an event?)  

Let's change directions now.  For the past three months, maybe longer, I've been hearing about different folks getting knee replacements.  At first, it was just a part of the conversation, but then the amount of times I was hearing about this person, or that person getting a knee replacement or a second  knee replacment recently had me again pressing into the Lord to see if there was any significance to it.  The sense was yes, but no clarity.  As I continued to pray, the Lord began to reveal His heart and the meaning behind all the knee replacement surgeries.  

A Word for the Church.....  - "We are in a desperate, critical hour.  The Church must be on their knees.  The Church needs to be on their knees praying for mercy, praying for change in our country, praying for change in the world.  The Church needs to get back to the godly values, godly principles and godly ways - get back to the roots of our Founding Fathers. 
         Time is short!  Time is running out.  We are already on borrowed time.  

The spiritual deficit is greater than the monetary deficit. 

 The Lord wants us ALL to be on our knees praying.  Prayer is the one main way we can see change happen.  We need to be praying for blind eyes to be opened to see and know the one true God - Jesus Christ!  We need to pray that the Church will awake and rise up into the Bride of Christ.  The Church is not doing what they are commanded to do in the Scriptures.  They are idle, status-quo, sleeping and satisfied with things of the world.  In My Word, is all you need to know that pertains to life and godliness.  (2 Peter 1:3).  You are to be the light of the world, set apart and called.  Greed, selfishness, lust and lawlessness has overtaken even My Church.  I weep over all I see.  Return to Me, your first love.  Return to My Word.  I am a God of mercy.  I am a God of lovingkindness.  I am a God who loves you and loves the world.  Return to Me!  

Ephesians 5:1-20 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children
 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a
 fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for 
God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, 
which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.  For of this you can be sure:
 No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater
has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things
 God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 
Therefore do not be partners with them.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.

 Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)  and find out what pleases the Lord.  
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 
 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 
But everything exposed by the lightbecomes visible
and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.  This is why it is said:

                                                 “Wake up, sleeper,
                                                                                                                           rise from the dead,
                                           and Christ will shine on you.”

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,

making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 

 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 

 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,
speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,  always giving thanks to God the Father for everything,

 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (emphasis added,mine)

What do the Colorado floods and knee replacements have in common?  The floods are one of many things that have happened and what may happen if we don't get on our knees. We need to be wearing our knees out from being on them in prayer.  Last summer the Lord showed me our country would be experiencing weather related events that would be "epic" or history making.  The Colorado Floods of 2013 are just one of many epic events that have happened.  The Lord is speaking to His people.... are you listening?  

Seek the Lord...what might He want you to do, or do differently?  What, if any, idolatry needs to be repented of? What can you do today to make a difference for the Kingdom of God??

MY PHONE CRASHED & I LOST ALL MY PHONE CONTACTS.  Would you please please email me your contact information!   Pretty please!! 

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: 
We have our house on the market for sale!  Please pray God will bring the right buyer soon, if He wants us to move.... and a new place to live.  No income makes it a bit hard to qualify for renting or buying?  Looking forward to seeing God work this out! 

Pray for provision - we sold Ken's truck, and some furniture pieces and are continuing to attempt to sell things so we can pay our bills.  Ken had work for a few weeks that we are thankful for and are still seeking God on what to do in the interim to us moving full steam in "Chaplain" work (but needing Michele's health to be restored)

Pray for Michele's health - still no changes in physical energy levels and pain levels continue to be high.  The adrenals have been extremely exhausted and even headed towards crisis several times over the last few months.  

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.
