Be Careful of the Pot You Stir

Someone once told me .......... "Be careful what pot you stir, for you may end up eating from that very same pot"
It was several years back this was shared and I love how a lesson back then can and will still apply to the here and now.  It amazes me when my daddy God brings something to my heart and mind.
I have been meditating on this and asking.....   What am I stirring Lord? A pot full of love or resentment?? Does my pot have forgiveness or anger?? Is my soul food tasty or bitter here in my pot?
Do my ingredients smell of sweet nothings and a beautiful fragrance to you Lord? Do they cause others to hunger for you? Or have they began to burn with blackness on my heart and in my words?? And cause pain and sorrow??
Exactly what am I stirring Lord??? It's so easy to get caught up in our fleshy emotions for we truly can not see what exactly we tend to stir.
 I have come to a place in my life, I no longer concern myself with what others may or may not be stirring in their pots.....

Will The " Real " You Please Stand Up?

This is a re-post from March 2012 I wrote over at"Shakin the Foundation"   Click here to visit Shakin the Foundation ****************************************************************************

The "real " me? .....

As a single mom the world has, on many occasions, label me with it's version of who I am . I have been told I am unlovable, that no man would ever want me.

I have been told I was too fat, and too skinny. I have been told I am too loud, not pretty enough, not educated enough, and not wealthy enough to fit in the great social status of life who the world deems the "beautiful" people.

I have been told I am a weak parent as there is no "man" in my household.  I have been told I'm not Godly enough, my values are lacking, once again there must be something wrong with me as I am divorced.

I  was told on a couple of occasions that I spent too much time with my children and was too involved with their sporting activities.

Huh?? Seriously....…

Grace Comes Knocking Again

Grace, Ohhh how I love you........
I am trying with every breath in my being to show this one particular person grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love all wrapped in one..... I am finding it so hard as boundaries have been crossed..... Feelings have been hurt..... Choices made that were not theirs  to make...... This person has rubbed me the wrong way, over and over again.  I want to scream at the top of my lungs ... IT"S NOT ABOUT YOU!!!!
 But.......I remind myself to take the highroad..... To sow peace and not strife...... To eliminate any and all stress to the best of my ability...... To be more of Christ and less of me. However with my words and thoughts on different pages........
~Grace comes knocking again~
I sit with her and began to tell her why I feel the way I do.... I tell her this person is too pushy.... To over bearing.... I explain to her I see this person making everything all about them.... Manipulating every situation. Yes I am angry...... And ready to explode.

Do you see where I am goi…

To Prosper Is More Than Money

When hearing the word prosper most, my self included,  immediately see dollar signs. 
Financial gain is always a blessing....
However there is so much more in becoming prosperous....
Much more.


There is prosperity in our health......
Prosperity in our relationships, old and new.....
When  our daddy God increases our knowledge.....
Our wisdom.....
Our joy.....
We are prosperous. 

When our faith is increased to a new level.....
When mercy and grace become the foundation of our love for others......
When forgiveness comes easy to those who hurt us....
When the peace that surpasses all understanding engulfs our hearts and souls.....
We are prosperous.

When  the manifestation of our daddy God's word comes alive in the very core of our being......
When we see others through the eyes of our Father.....
In the reaching out and lending a hand to those in need......
We are prosperous.

As Holy Spirit continues to whisper to me the words abundant and prosper.......
I encourage you to see yourself prosperous as a…
