Frozen In Time! Featuring Tracy Teppler~

I feel frozen.  I feel unable to do anything!  I love being creative, although I am not a creative person.  I'm good at following a pattern and I'm practical and get stuff done.  But, this thing that hangs over us constantly, is freezing me up.
  • My emotions are freaking out!  Either really calm or really over the top
  • I am getting nothing done.
  • I'm not trying anything new
  • I am not completing projects I've started
I suppose at the end of the day, that is exactly what the devil wants.  So, I suppose the plan is to do what the devil does not want me to do.  In that case, 
  • I need to continue on with existing projects.  I will go hunt down that knitting thing I started.
  • I need to try new things, eg something new to cook, tackle making that lamp shade cover, maybe go somewhere new
  • I need to praise and worship until all those negative thoughts have no room left in my head.
Your Word Lord, keeps me from freezing....

Yep, that is my plan of action.  I will put on my praise music, take out my half-finished project, look for a new recipe to try and get on with it.  I know God will restore all this situation has stolen, but I mustn't add to this thievery by freezing up and stopping living.  That, I know God does not want for me!

Joel 2 v 25:  I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten....
Amen and amen!

God bless


  1. OH, I so get this. When I froze up 6 years ago, I decided to get up and praise and do and move forward each day. The freezing thawed and away I went.
    Keep movin' and shakin', praisin' and cookin'! :)

  2. So glad you wrote this. I was wondering what was the matter with me. I am frozen. Time to get my praise on and start moving forward :) Thank you so much for this post

  3. I have moments when I feel frozen too, my mom is fighting cancer.........

  4. Hi Ladies, I am so glad that you can relate to my feeling this way, and Kristin, you are completely right, get your praise on and move forward, one step and a time. And one of these days, we look back and see that the thaw has taken place and we are experiencing joy and peace again. Thank you for your encouragement
    God bless

When My Puzzle Pieces Do Not Fit

Putting a puzzle together can be fun, enjoyable and somewhat a relaxing time when the pieces all fit correctly the first time.  However when it is a puzzle with thousands of little pieces that require a great deal of time trying to figure out what piece goes where it can become frustrating, at least for me. Many times I have had to rely on the box top picture to navigate me through the placing of each piece and even that process can be irritating. Eventually the pieces do all fit exactly the way they were created to fit and the perfect picture is formed.It is a victory of sorts for me as patience is not my best quality.

 But what about when our life's pieces are not fitting together?

I had this certain picture I created in my mind, a picture how my own pieces were to fit together, my perfect box top per say. However the pieces I chose I could not force them to fit. No matter how I placed them, pushed them together, they still would not connect. My box top picture was not the pr…

She Shut The Door And Poured

2 Kings 4:5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out.   2 Kings chapter 4 tells the story of a widow woman on the verge of losing her sons to pay off the debits owed. With creditors on their way to take her only means of future support, she cries out to the prophet Elisha. Following his instructions, vessels are gathered and the little bit of oil she has begins to flow in abundance..... after she shuts the door. With many vessels now full, she is able to sell the oil, pay the debits owed and her sons remain with her. She shut the door and poured it out....... Those words erupt in my heart. A Godly woman she was. she poured her heart out and her needs were met. But she shut the door! Too many times in life I have a need , a wanting, a desire but yet can not hear what the Lord would say all because I have left the door open; a open door allowing the voices of the world to pour into my heart and not the promises …

Sifting Before the Shifting

I have been hearing the Lord say " shift" for the last year.  Shift in the atmosphere, shift in our nation, shift in the church, and a shift in me.  When I think about the word shift, I see a grand swope of the hand of God moving all into a direction of peace and wholeness.I believe without a doubt He is doing so, however I never once entertained the though He'd have to do some sifting.... sifting in me.

Sifting is a process, a two part process, when sifting wheat. First comes the threshing, the beating of the grain using a flail. Second part is the winnowing, throwing the mixture in the air allowing the wind to blow away the lighter chaffs and the heavier grains to fall back down for recovery.  I take a closer look at this process and begin to meditate on how it applies to my life.

The threshing  is the process of removal; removing those things which will cause me to stumble.When God begins to remove, He does so with the intent of replacing; replacing with those thin…
