A Beautiful Reminder



Psalm 85:8

I will hear what God the Lord will speak,For He will speak peace
To His people and to His saints;
But let them not turn back to folly.

I had not been able to understand why I had  been feeling like something was wrong......
The feeling that something was about to happen......
Not knowing what that something could be.
I questioned where did I belong......
What was the whole picture as to why I was moved in the first place? 
I understand it was partly a time of healing.....
Part of it was a spiritual protection ....( a daddy protecting his daughter from herself)
 And then partly to slowly have me deal with the root of my inter pain that had swallowed me up for most of my life..... Rejection.
One would think with all these "parts" I'd have the whole picture right? 
Ehhh not so much.
 There is more to it......
Much more. 

I had not been able to find the right words for the feelings  I had bouncing around. 
I couldn't articulate how I felt without sounding all gibberish .
I could not connect my feelings with words...........
Frustrated does not cover how I felt some days. 

I began to question just how in tuned I really am with my daddy God. 
If I was feeling all out of sorts , as a child of God I should know why I feel the way I do......
I never doubted His word..........
Nor have I doubted  His promises He has made to me......
I believe with all my heart what He says will come to pass.....
So why the uneasiness for lack of a better word?
Was it the timing of it all I was doubting?
Why do I feel so restless?

I was able to go  visit my Texas family and friends. 
My " Framily" :)
I love going back to my home church, it is amazing!!
 Not only was I blessed with a great service from my home pastor, I was blessed by  friends who had purchased a sermon series from a visiting pastor the week before, and could not wait to listen on the 4 hour drive back home. I was ready soak in every word!!

As soon as I heard him say," I don't know about you, but I have an unsettling feeling in my spirit". I felt like I was hit by a thunder bolt!!!
 Ooooooo......That's it, that's the feeling I have, that's the words I could not put my finger on.
He then goes on to say " Those who have been feeling displaced will be placed" 
 Instant light bulb!!!

"Positioning" my daddy God says to me. 


To hear I am being positioned to full fill the plan he has for me touches my very soul......
To know my feelings are not in vain......
For there is a purpose in it all......
This has been such a strange, hard, yet blessed season I have been it. 



I now see the unsettling as a positive emotion, because through it, my daddy God has taken away my natural compass of direction......
  I am now left for him to lead me.....
To rely on him and him alone.
To full fill my purpose as He sees fit.
When we really listen, we can hear him speak in the midst of the unsettling.....
We can feel his presence on the uncharted road we walk..... 
He will continue to nudge us with his whispers of love and encouragement. 

With the sunset to my back and traveling east to my home,  I am blessed........
He has me in the palm of his hand. 
A beautiful reminder~

  1. I too have felt an "unsettling". I couldn't figure some things out, until one day out of the blue, a couple of things just "settled" in my mind. I still wonder what He has in store for me, because quite frankly, I feel unsettled and anxious about some things. But I know He will reveal it in His time.. Hugsssss and love to ya sister

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…
