Stepping out in Faith~

Wow, to say I am a little nervous to take this step is an understatement. God had placed this additional blog on my heart several months ago.

For those who do not know, my sister, and best friend Diana have our ministry blog site "Shakin' the Foundation" and for me to step out and add another one to my resume' of blogger is a honor and blessing.

However it is a tad bit scary to start something new......

But that is what God does with His children.....

He has us to step out of our comfort zone into the unknown.....

He brings us to a new place of uncertainties, only to have us learn a new level of faith in Him. 

He tells us to despise not small beginnings.....


So here I am, at a new place, biting my finger nails, twirling my hair between my fingers,and breathing deeply as I take this new step.


 In the near future, I will be introducing a few ladies that will be guest blogging here on a regular basis. I am honored that these women are in my life and can't wait for them to become apart of yours.

Some are old friends .....

Some are new......

And  each one holds a special place in my heart~

Be encouraged as they tell their stories of times where it seemed as if there was no place to go, no hope, no love and no healing.

Stories of God's grace and love in their lives as they too "stood" through their trials, their hardships and their battles.

See the "before", the "during" and the "after" of God's victory in each and every one of our stories~

See His love~

See that you are not alone~


Welcome to "She Stands"

Much Love~

I Don't Know Her Name........

 Over the weekend, I was blessed to travel with an amazing group of people to my home away from home, Cleveland Texas.  It is there supplies were brought and large cooking pots were fired up to cook and serve the community members after hurricane Harvey marked this town with his damaging winds and flooding rain. Serving and caring for those who have suffered a great loss tends to pull on the strings of my heart, however this precious lady not only pulled on my heart strings, her meek and humbleness has lodged a place in the depth of my soul. 

I had watched her walk through the church parking lot, shoulders slumped, her foot steps appearing to be in slow motion with her eyes scanning for someone to talk to. There was softness about her; a presence of need.  She asked if she had to register to gather the supplies she needed. After explaining to her she did not need to register and was welcome to take anything she needed, she humbly began to take a few items, she did not want to take …

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…
