Sunshine Through The Clouds



Another new year is fast approaching and with that thought in my mind, my heart holds the emotions of many that have weathered many a storm this past year.
Myself included......

I have learned through my own storms what it means to truly apply God's words.....
There have been some storms it took a little longer than what most would have liked, but in the end I pressed in and pushed through....
I "applied"

No matter the storms we face in life, the sun is always behind the clouds.
No matter the battles we fight, our daddy God is always behind us taking charge for the victory ahead.

 Matthew 6:33 
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Isaiah 41:10 
Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Philippians 4:13 
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

 Romans 8:28 
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

 Nahum 1:7
The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.


I had to get to the place in my own life that speaking God's words was not enough...
I had to not only speak them, but APPLY them daily!!!
Sometimes it is easy to get so caught up in the storm, we quickly speak the word but we do not apply the word.

The old saying " If you are going to talk the talk you need to walk the walk" comes to mind.
Walking the walk is apply our daddy God's word in every situation.

I had to be reminded to apply over the last few months through out my storms.
And in the end, I have seen the sun behind the clouds.

I am standing in the belief that not only are my clouds moving on, but yours are too!!
I want to encourage you to not only speak but apply God's words in your every day life. 
Confess His plan for your life regardless of what your circumstances are saying.....
Believe in the victory your daddy God has for you!!

There is sunshine behind the clouds.

2 Corinthians 12:9 
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

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…
