Blogging Through It All~


In my struggles......
In my times of stress....
In my time of brokenness........
In my anger....
My pain.....
My doubt.......
What's a girl to do Lord?


In the past when things were topsy turvey in my life, I had the habit of shutting down.
My answers to any questions were " I'm fine" and " Nothing" ....
I would hide out in my own little world I had created within myself .....

I would retreat to my own private sanctuary and shut everyone and everything out.
Including my daddy God.......
I didn't see myself shutting God out, but my lack of communication with Him showed otherwise.....
My thinking process......
"He knows what is wrong and how to fix it, so I will just hide out under the covers until it is done."

 My hiding under the covers meant that I walked through my daily life with a smile plastered on my face and spoke hollow words.
My insides were broken and in pain.....
And I continued to stuff it all down, never expressing my true wounds.
My mountain of wounds became my ultimate hiding place, for there was much room to carve many emotional caves inside.

Many questions to ponder.....
Much irritation and stress....
A wounded heart.....
And many tears.

Several days ago a HUGE light bulb went off in my mind.....
A revelation of knowledge lit  up my little world.
I now see over the last few years, my daddy God, in His wonderful wisdom and love has me talking about my wounds....


 God, You speak to me by having me "blog through it all"

Instead of going under my covers, He has me share my struggles....
He allows His voice to speak through my words....
His words.......
To show MY pain and confess HIS love.


We all go through seasons of struggle....
It's what we do with it and how we handle it that determines our growth.

I may still have a little more "struggling" (growing) to go through in this season but my best friend and soul sister Diana said it best when she said.....
" This is the storm before the calm"
With that said,  I will remain in the boat, rowing my through it with my daddy God as my guide.

In other words.......
I will "Blog my way through it All" and come out victorious in every season , giving my daddy God all the glory!!!!!

No more pulling the covers over my head....
No more hiding .....
No more pretending.....
I will no longer be ashamed of my weakness.

2 Corinthians 12:9-11


But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


It is in the sharing and confessing we show others less of ourselves and more of our daddy God......
 He is the source of our strength in  life.

I encourage you, throw back those covers......
Step out in boldness, knowing HE is your strength!!!!!

  1. I think transparency is an incredibly good quality! When we share our struggles and triumphs with others, telling how God has carried us through, our faith grows and so does the faith of others. None of us are perfect, but as we demonstrate our reliance on the Lord, He is honored. Thanks for sharing and for linking up today!

    Blessings, Joan

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…
