I Am Human


I am not as strong as I appear to be.....
I have my time of weakness. 
I cry the same tears you cry....
But behind closed doors.

My smile is genuine.....
So is the pain surrounding it.
I have my bad days just as you do....
Life throws us all curve balls from time to time. 

I love hard.....
I lose gracefully.
I care deep....
I run from rejection.

I stumble through negativity.....
I rise again through encouragement. 
I make mistakes.....
I become victorious.

I stand for the ones I love.....
Through their pain and their joy.
I give second chances.....
And then some. 

I fight strong.....
I crumble easy.
I have my own insecurities.....
I have my own strengths.

I see things in others they themselves can't see....
I believe in them.....
I see their heart. 

I forgive easy.....
I love faithfully. 
I try again......
And again. 

I walk hard roads....
That lead to easy ones.
I climb mountains...
I walk through valleys.
I see the clouds...
But feel the sunshine. 
I don't understand....
But I trust in Him. 

Though I may break.....
I feel His peace. 
Though I may hurt....
I feel His love.....
And for that I am forever grateful. 

I am Human.....
And  His grace carries me forever more.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, " My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. " Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so the power of Christ may rest upon me.

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 …

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…
