"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!

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…

His Binding Love Letter

Here it is post Valentine's Day and though I am not a huge fan of this particular holiday, I do find a tender sweetness of it's meaning.

Sometimes being single has it's downfalls and holidays are a reminder that I am indeed single. Most of the time I am quite content where I am in my journey of singleness and then there are those times in between when I wonder if I will ever share my life again with a man. I do not ponder on that thought quite often as I know my daddy God has a plan and the right man for me.  This year Valentine's day was odd for me. I was not in a place of sadness nor did I feel sorry for myself. It was not a pity party holiday for me but yet I found myself wanting to hear I am loved. And I believe my daddy God wanted to show me as well. So yesterday as I read many beautiful post from what seemed like tons of flower pictures, and candy filled "I love yous", I secretly asked myself what is my love letter in life…
