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

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 …

Sometimes.... I Cry

Why is it society deems crying as a weakness? Little boys are taught one criteria to be a man is not to cry. Little girls who cry are labeled as too emotional. It seems shedding tears is frowned upon in the grand scheme of life, however truth be told........ tears are the voice of our emotions.

I tend to cry at the drop of a hat these days. Maybe it is hormones or lack of, maybe I am going through the "change" of life, or maybe just maybe my heart has become more sensitive to the things that surround me? I choose to believe it's the latter. I choose to believe my daddy God has answered my prayer when I asked Him to allow me to see others through His eyes.

Sometimes. I. Cry.

And I'm not alone. 

John 11:35 is only two words, two heartfelt words.........
"Jesus wept."

Scripture allows us to see the depth of His love for Lazarus when He heard of his death. Through his tears, we see the voice of his heart, we hear the sound of his emotions. If Jesus can weep,…

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…
