Not This Road Again?!?!


I don't know  the exact thing that has me so emotional today.....
Wait....... that statement is not completely accurate.
I know what is weighing heavy on my heart......
For me to speak it out loud sounds so selfish.....
So self absorbed.
But speak it I do. 
~sigh~

"Why Lord?" I ask.....
Why this road????
I am tired Jesus, tired of having to be strong....
Tired of having to be two .......
Tired of picking up the pieces.......
I am just so tired, and I don't want to do this anymore. 

My question of cries continue......
None of this was my choice, so why am I the one having to ride this roller coaster of emotions??
"This is not what I wanted"... I scream on the inside.
I worked so hard to NOT have this happen.....
I did so many things opposite for circumstances and situations to be different. 
Why Lord?? Why??
I am just so tired...............



At this moment, the statement " And this too shall pass" seems to be an eternity.
~sheesh~

"Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest......"
I brush these words spoken off and continue my rant.
"My yoke is easy and my burden is light"
Yeah yeah yeah, I know but Lord this not what I want!!

The words my daddy God spoken to me are not heeded. I am too wrapped up in my own emotions. 
Self absorbed??
Maybe..........
The complete honesty of it all, it's fear,weariness, along with some anger. 
All the ups and downs, twist and turns of this road I am on that has me wanting to jump off and run.
 I have already lived this road once......
Everything inside me screams, NOOOOOOO!
I just can't do this Lord.................

Then the words I hear in my heart.....
" Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. " (Isaiah 41:10)

He is giving me the strength I need.....
The courage to continue............
The peace to complete it..........
The joy to overcome .............
And the love to endure.

"The road you once walked is not in vain, everything you learned will now be used to walk them through.........Walk it in love daughter." 
"Trust in Me"  

I am so thankful He never leaves me where I am....
I am most grateful he continues to teach me.....
I am forever seeking him.

Walking this road (again) is not an option, it's part of the journey....
My journey. 

Man plans, but God prevails.

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.

When My Puzzle Pieces Do Not Fit

Putting a puzzle together can be fun, enjoyable and somewhat a relaxing time when the pieces all fit correctly the first time.  However when it is a puzzle with thousands of little pieces that require a great deal of time trying to figure out what piece goes where it can become frustrating, at least for me. Many times I have had to rely on the box top picture to navigate me through the placing of each piece and even that process can be irritating. Eventually the pieces do all fit exactly the way they were created to fit and the perfect picture is formed.It is a victory of sorts for me as patience is not my best quality.

 But what about when our life's pieces are not fitting together?

I had this certain picture I created in my mind, a picture how my own pieces were to fit together, my perfect box top per say. However the pieces I chose I could not force them to fit. No matter how I placed them, pushed them together, they still would not connect. My box top picture was not the pr…

She Shut The Door And Poured

2 Kings 4:5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out.   2 Kings chapter 4 tells the story of a widow woman on the verge of losing her sons to pay off the debits owed. With creditors on their way to take her only means of future support, she cries out to the prophet Elisha. Following his instructions, vessels are gathered and the little bit of oil she has begins to flow in abundance..... after she shuts the door. With many vessels now full, she is able to sell the oil, pay the debits owed and her sons remain with her. She shut the door and poured it out....... Those words erupt in my heart. A Godly woman she was. she poured her heart out and her needs were met. But she shut the door! Too many times in life I have a need , a wanting, a desire but yet can not hear what the Lord would say all because I have left the door open; a open door allowing the voices of the world to pour into my heart and not the promises …

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…
