Sorting It Out



My life right now looks and feels like a pile of socks that need sorting and matched......
Or at least that's how I feel.
Did I mention I dislike sorting socks???
With a passion.
~sigh~

There has been several changes in my little corner of the world in the last few months. 
My emotions have been running high for several reasons.......
So high, I feel as though there are times they are choking me. 
I have gone from happy to fearful, stressed to feeling blessed, doubtful to belief, and confused to certainty .....
I have had no clue which piece (sock) of my world to pick up first.
From family members struggling to the point of drowning..........
To friends whose world seem on the verge of collapse...
And those who's strong desire for independence, has them on a path of pain and hard knocks. 

It all goes back to my "fix it" syndrome.
I know I must give it all to my daddy God......
I must lay it ALL down and leave it there. 
No matter what others may say of me or think of me......
I am to give it to Him.
However there are times in the natural it can be so difficult. 
This seems to be one of those times for me.

Through  many tears I ask my daddy God how am I to do this.......
And it is in the silence I feel His presence........
It's in the silence I can bare my heart and soul to the one who never forsakes me........
It is in the silence I hear his voice.

Luke 1:45 
" Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord."

John 14:27
" Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives do I give. Let  not your heart be troubled,neither let it be afraid. "

James 5:16
" Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective,fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

Not only has He placed those in my world to hold me up, love me without boundaries, and stand for me.........
 He shows me He is sorting all the "socks" (pieces) in my life.
For that is the love of my daddy God!!!
Do you have a life pile of socks that need sorting? 
Listen for the voice of the One who does it better than we could ever imagine.....
The voice of our Father. 
Let him sort it out!!!

James 5.:11
' Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord-that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful."

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 …

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…

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…
