"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!

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…
