Am I Ready Lord ??





I can speak of my past.......
I feel safe in my present..........
But I am nervous for my future......
Excited and nervous wrapped into one.

Am I ready Lord??

God's word tells us, He did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love and sound mind.
So why am I so nervous?
 Maybe I am scared of myself.....
~Sheesh~
Scared I will maybe make the same choices again.....
~Yuck~
Scared the "old" me will resurface and the emotional baggage of my past will consume the me of today.....
~Lord No~
Fearful if I truly allow someone in, I will be rejected....
~tears~
Or the choices I make will be just that, MY choices and not God's will for my life.
~Sweet Jesus~


 My door of isolation has opened, I take my first few steps breathing in the new season that is upon me......
It is a sweet excitement.....
Very sweet! 
But as refreshing as it is, part of me wants to run back to the sheltered place I have lived.....
My comfort zone......
My safe place......
Where it's just been me and God......
No rejection.....
No judgement......
No fear.......
My unconditional love......
A love that is without fail.

That's what the enemy wants me to do.
To stay put, not move and live my life peeking around the corner.....
Not uttering a word ......
Fearful.....
Doubtful.......
Closed off.....
And closed up.
Never speaking of the love and grace of my daddy God.....
Never to be a testimony of his healing grace in my life......


BUT my daddy God says different.....
And HE has the final word!!!!

For every correction.....
For every healing.....
Every restoration in my life....
 All leads to the blessings my daddy God has for me.
Blessings in the ministry.....
Blessings in my personal life.....
Blessings over my children......
Blessings over all whom I hold dear to my heart.

Over the past few days, I have gone back to all the promises and prophetic words spoken over me from the Lord.
To remind myself of what HE says......
To shut the enemy up!!!!!

Once again..."Am I ready Lord?"
My answer......
"Yes you are!!"

Ready to walk around that corner......
~no more peeking~
 Ready for my next season my daddy God has for me.
~happy happy girl~

My winter season was one of healing and restoring me back to my Father.
It was one of correction and shaping.....
One of protection and training.....
Learning and growing.....
Stretching my faith to a new level......
Standing as I had never stood before.....
Leaning on Him and Him alone......
Learning to love and extend grace through the eyes and heart of Christ.

My spring season is here and the promised reaping of a harvest is upon me.
For that I am so very thankful!!!
~His word never returns void~

It is through Him that I can do ALL things and so can you!!!
I encourage you, if you are still peeking around your corner and God has instructed you to walk out.......
Your break through is here!!
Spring has arrived!!!
Turn that corner and walk it like a boss!!!!!
Your daddy God has already paved the way for you!!!

We are children of the Most High!!! :)

However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[a]
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—

  8. God gave us life and He wants us to live it, not peek around the corner of it. And living, for the time we are given it, is wonderful. Not perfect, but wonderful.

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…

His Binding Love Letter

Here it is post Valentine's Day and though I am not a huge fan of this particular holiday, I do find a tender sweetness of it's meaning.

Sometimes being single has it's downfalls and holidays are a reminder that I am indeed single. Most of the time I am quite content where I am in my journey of singleness and then there are those times in between when I wonder if I will ever share my life again with a man. I do not ponder on that thought quite often as I know my daddy God has a plan and the right man for me.  This year Valentine's day was odd for me. I was not in a place of sadness nor did I feel sorry for myself. It was not a pity party holiday for me but yet I found myself wanting to hear I am loved. And I believe my daddy God wanted to show me as well. So yesterday as I read many beautiful post from what seemed like tons of flower pictures, and candy filled "I love yous", I secretly asked myself what is my love letter in life…
