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

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…
