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.

  1. I believe the Holy Spirit drew me here today- I am an older lady in New Zealand- feeling much as you have described-knowing that my only hope is in Christ my Saviour.
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit., Romans 15:13

  4. It is easy to judge the broken, though it brings noting of real value to the broken or the one judging. But, love, acceptance and genuine friendship can change a life. Good post.

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…
