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."

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…
