"Walk Away"..... says God


"Walk away little girl"......I hear my daddy God's voice speaking clearly.
" This is not what or who I have for you".........
"Do not walk off the path I have set before you".........
"You have come so far, heed my instruction"......
"Walk away".....says God.

"Whew that was close Lord".... I tell him.
There are times in life we can get to the point in our waiting period we believe the very thing that has been set before us is ours......
In reality it is not. 
It is a diversion off the path set before us......
A snare to hinder our walk.....
A trap to stop us from reaching our blessed destination......
A disaster wrapped in a pretty bow, aimed to take us out emotionally.......

A task at hand to have us sell out our birth right (blessing) for a bowl of stew, (the here and now). 
~Remember Esau sold his to Jacob ...Genesis 25:29-34~

Making the same type of decisions and expecting a different out come is unwise.....
It is  disastrous ......
A vicious cycle 
It becomes delusional that all will be well.......
A consorted belief it will not be the same as the last time......
That we can save others from themselves and the happy ever after ending will prevail.

Proverbs 1:7
" The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, 
But fools despise wisdom and instruction."

Continuing to make our own choices, with out seeking our daddy God,  proves us to be the fools whom despise wisdom and instruction. 

So many times in my life, I had been the "fool".......
I  ignored the wisdom placed in my path......
I pushed her (wisdom) to the side, all because I knew better......
At least I thought I did.....
~sheesh~

I hear my daddy God speak to my heart......
" Trust me even in the silence. I know what is best for you. No longer the fool who rebels against wisdom are you", He tells me with such love and compassion for he knows my heart......
He knows my desires.....
He knows without a doubt what is best for me, His daughter.  


I read the following not too long ago......
 "Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."

Anything outside of what our daddy God has for us will not serve us, grow us, or give us happiness. 

No longer a fool who despises wisdom or instruction......
"Walk away"....says God
And I do..........

  2. Stacey, you have no idea how this spoke to me. I can't go into details other than someone had been making my life crazy and after much trying, talking, and praying with my husband, we decided the Lord was telling us it was time to walk away...not something I ever do with people. I feel your post has just confirmed it all the more. Thank you sweet friend!

    1. Ohhh Sugar I am so glad it did!! Isn't it great how our daddy God speaks to us?!?!? There are some in my life he has instructed me to do the same thing. However we can still love them as Christ does and pray for them, but from afar :)) Wisdom speaks!

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…
