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.

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…
