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 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…
