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!!! :)

1 Corinthians 2:9

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—

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…
