Cross Roads

* I take no credit for this photo*

How many times in life do we come to a crossroad? 
I know......Many right?
With every new season in life, we come to a crossroad.
I have encountered many in my life.
Some good........
Some not so good.
 I am sitting at one at this very moment in my life...
Waiting for instruction on which road I am to take. 

I know most see a cross road as a major life change and I agree, most are. 
My cross road my not be huge or major, but to me ,never the less, it is a cross road. 

In the past I have always ran ahead of God....
Turning on  roads I thought were best. 
Little did I know I would have to back up, turn around, and start over.....
Many times......
Which is exhausting in itself, Can I tell you?
~Sheesh~

 The good news....
Our daddy God never leaves us as we are.
We are not left stranded on the side of the road.
He has given us a map....
Road signs.....
Others standing for us , pointing us in the right way.
( Our cloud of witnesses)
Directions for our journey. 
We do however have to be willing to follow His lead.
I have learned to listen for His voice.
( After several wrong turns in life)

For now I will wait for Him to lead me on the road I am to take.....
I have purposed to no longer run ahead of him.....
And in the moments my feet start to venture before the appointed time...
He gives me His word...
His directions. 
Thank you Sweet Jesus!!

If you are are at a cross road in your life, you are not alone. 
He, our daddy God, is there with your map and directions....
Just listen for his voice...
He will not lead you wrong :)


Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path

Psalm 119:130

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 119:133

Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me. 

I shall hear a word behind me, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever I turn to the right or the left. (Isaiah 30:21)

God will instruct me and teach me in the way I should go. He will guide me with His eye.Psalm 32:8

The Lord will guide me continually. Isaiah 58:11 

The Spirit of truth has come and He is guiding me into all truth. He will tell me things to come. John 16:13

  1. The journey of life can be scary if we forget that we only need to hold our Father's hand and trust Him as He leads us. Thank you for sharing!

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 …

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…
