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.

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…
