Love In Brokenness

I was broken.
My heart was shattered like shards of glass.....
My soul cried out in pain......
My physical appearance had begun to disappear.
I literally was walking through my life in a state of hopelessness.
And I had no clue...........

By God's grace, I had several in my life that were called to stand with me and for me.
Those who encouraged and lifted me up on a daily bases.
Those who held me up when all I wanted to do was lay down....
Those who would not let me quit in life. 

No judgement..........
They gave me hope.....
The gave me love. 

The broken need hope and to have hope, they need to be loved. 
They need to see there is a light in the midst of the darkness.....
For others to speak into their lives with a resounding voice of victory. 

When we extend love ( light), the broken begin to have hope and faith then becomes a light. 

God's word tells us in 
1 Corinthians 13:13
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Love conquers and covers.....
It shelters and protects.....
It provides and guides....
It heals......
It restores. 

1 Corinthians 13:7
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I am so thankful for the love I had extended to me.
I have chosen to be a light to the broken.
A light full of love.....
Just has those who shone their light of love in my life.....
Extended their grace and mercy....
Helped to restore my hope and faith......
Spoke victory over me and my life.....
I will shine mine. 
The light (love) of Christ.  


God doesn't call us to be" religious". He calls us to be a light shinning in a dark world  ( Joyce Meyer )

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 …

When My Puzzle Pieces Do Not Fit

Putting a puzzle together can be fun, enjoyable and somewhat a relaxing time when the pieces all fit correctly the first time.  However when it is a puzzle with thousands of little pieces that require a great deal of time trying to figure out what piece goes where it can become frustrating, at least for me. Many times I have had to rely on the box top picture to navigate me through the placing of each piece and even that process can be irritating. Eventually the pieces do all fit exactly the way they were created to fit and the perfect picture is formed.It is a victory of sorts for me as patience is not my best quality.

 But what about when our life's pieces are not fitting together?

I had this certain picture I created in my mind, a picture how my own pieces were to fit together, my perfect box top per say. However the pieces I chose I could not force them to fit. No matter how I placed them, pushed them together, they still would not connect. My box top picture was not the pr…

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…
