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 …

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…
