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!

When Goliath Refuses To Fall

Goliath....  A Philistine giant who stood over nine feet tall, wearing full armor and came every day for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelite's to fight. 


His stature was massive with a physical strength no man could match. He put such a vast fear into the army of Israel and King Saul no one was willing to confront him, until David, a boy after God's own heart, stood to face this giant with the colossal power of God standing with him.

Some may ask how does a sling and a stone become such a victorious weapon of war?
My answer...... It was the trust and faith in God alone that gave David and his sling and stone such a victory. All though I may not actually face a nine foot giant in life, I do however have had my own Goliath's to encounter. And the one over the last few years has refused to fall...........

Just when I think peace has finally found it's place in my life, this giant surfaces with its mocking and taunting war cry, challenging me to battle. I ha…

He Did Not Just Wear His Badge.....He Gave His Life.

I don't recall a time in my life where my faith has ever wavered, I trust God. I believe in Him and His promises.   However in the recent events I am finding it's not my lack of  trust that has me on my knees, it's my lack of understanding . The grief that has consumed my community and our nation is smothering the very essence of my heart.
So much death.....
So much violence.....
So much brokenness.....
Division at it's worse.

As a nation we grieved for Dallas and the loss of the fallen officers. Today as a community we grieve for our own. The three hero's, Montrell Jackson, Matthew Gerald and Brad Garafola, who lost their lives in a purposely orchestrated attack. A senseless act which has now placed Baton Rouge on the map of sorrow with others across the US. And one question that screams at us all............
WHY?

I do not have the answer nor will I pretend to.  I wish I did. I pray my words of comfort do not sound  cliche' or hollow. I pray the words from …

Digging Up A Bitter Root

Ephesians 4:26 "In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry."  (NIV)
" Many times bitterness is the result of unresolved anger; anger with ourselves or with others. . Anger that is not dealt with can easily become a dangerous bitter root in our hearts......"
(Click here for more on overcoming bitterness)  My mom has told me time and time again, " Stacey you forgive so easily, that's just who you are." Truth be told, I do forgive fairly easy; I have my moment , express my emotions, shed any needed tears, and move on. Am I perfect? Not hardly. Some situations and circumstances in my life have had me not wanting to forgive, and secretly hoping for God to smite them. Harsh? Yes I know." Lord forgive me."  However over the years I have purposed to do my best to see others with the eyes of my daddy God in spite of my hurting heart. And  there are times, regardless of my hearts desire to forgive, my best will have…
