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.

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…
