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…

Receiving Grace 2019

Every year the Lord will give me one word for the upcoming year. Last year He spoke the word receive to me. I'd be lying if I didn't say how excited I was to hear that word. Receive,receive, receive......I couldn't imagine all the great and new wonderful things He had for me to receive in 2018. I did my happy dance all the way through Christmas, extending my dance moves into the new year and added a few toe-tapping moves by the time spring rolled around. At that point, there was nothing or no one that could sway me from my self-indulged happy dance.

And then life cut in and interrupted my blissful dance with "receive".  Division shoved me off the dance floor while strife was stepping on my toes. Hurt was waiting for me to twirl me right into the arms of brokenness. This was not even close to what I believed I was to receive. Not understanding I brought my unhappiness to the feet of my Jesus. My life has been an uphill climb for so long, why for the love of all c…

The Crevices of Change Hurt

Making pottery is a craft of pure beauty. Majestic designs etched in to the clay with the smallest of hand tools. The steadiness of the potter's hands as the wheel is spun, scrapping away what is not needed in creating a one of a kind piece. The brazen shine, bold colors, and lingering prints of love left behind for all to see the tender care that was placed in creating such a piece causes pause and reflection on the times when I have been placed on the potter's wheel where the Lord will mold, shape and reshape me time and time again never to leave me as I am.

I had made a mental list of things I need to change. Next to each item, I noted the whys, the how's and the just because reasons to the changes needed. However, my list was long which caused an overwhelming panic to set in. There I was smack dab in the middle of a self induced panic attack I stared at a list I could never accomplish on my own. I had not even the slightest clue to which change to start with. They a…
