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—

When Goliath Refuses To Fall

Goliath....  A Philistine giant who stood over nine feet tall, wearing full armor and came every day for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelite's to fight. 


His stature was massive with a physical strength no man could match. He put such a vast fear into the army of Israel and King Saul no one was willing to confront him, until David, a boy after God's own heart, stood to face this giant with the colossal power of God standing with him.

Some may ask how does a sling and a stone become such a victorious weapon of war?
My answer...... It was the trust and faith in God alone that gave David and his sling and stone such a victory. All though I may not actually face a nine foot giant in life, I do however have had my own Goliath's to encounter. And the one over the last few years has refused to fall...........

Just when I think peace has finally found it's place in my life, this giant surfaces with its mocking and taunting war cry, challenging me to battle. I ha…

He Did Not Just Wear His Badge.....He Gave His Life.

I don't recall a time in my life where my faith has ever wavered, I trust God. I believe in Him and His promises.   However in the recent events I am finding it's not my lack of  trust that has me on my knees, it's my lack of understanding . The grief that has consumed my community and our nation is smothering the very essence of my heart.
So much death.....
So much violence.....
So much brokenness.....
Division at it's worse.

As a nation we grieved for Dallas and the loss of the fallen officers. Today as a community we grieve for our own. The three hero's, Montrell Jackson, Matthew Gerald and Brad Garafola, who lost their lives in a purposely orchestrated attack. A senseless act which has now placed Baton Rouge on the map of sorrow with others across the US. And one question that screams at us all............
WHY?

I do not have the answer nor will I pretend to.  I wish I did. I pray my words of comfort do not sound  cliche' or hollow. I pray the words from …

Digging Up A Bitter Root

Ephesians 4:26 "In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry."  (NIV)
" Many times bitterness is the result of unresolved anger; anger with ourselves or with others. . Anger that is not dealt with can easily become a dangerous bitter root in our hearts......"
(Click here for more on overcoming bitterness)  My mom has told me time and time again, " Stacey you forgive so easily, that's just who you are." Truth be told, I do forgive fairly easy; I have my moment , express my emotions, shed any needed tears, and move on. Am I perfect? Not hardly. Some situations and circumstances in my life have had me not wanting to forgive, and secretly hoping for God to smite them. Harsh? Yes I know." Lord forgive me."  However over the years I have purposed to do my best to see others with the eyes of my daddy God in spite of my hurting heart. And  there are times, regardless of my hearts desire to forgive, my best will have…
