Trust In All Things.....Lesson Learned

Trust is such a powerful word.
In reality it is a powerful emotion.
An emotion that can give joy or pain.
I have been told my entire life that I trust people way too easy.
I believe it's because I do my very best to look for the good in people. I purpose to see others as my daddy God sees them. I don't look to their faults and downfalls in life, for I ,myself, have fallen many times in life.
( many, many times)
I see past who they are at that very moment and I see who they are becoming.
I see their heart............
My trust issues I have discovered come from a place within myself , a place I thought I had long ago removed......
Thankfully my daddy God continues to mold me, shape me and teach me.
In the simplicity of my own little mind, I believed when I prayed and turned a situation over to  my daddy God, I had left it there for him to work on.
Sadly that has not been the case.
By allowing myself to get wrapped up in my own emotions, believing I could fix things faster,
 I had gone and picked back up the very same thing I gave to him.
The very person and persons I have laid at the feet of Jesus.......
Last night the Lord spoke to me.
"TRUST ME", He said!!!
"Believe what I have told you and don't pick it back up from me." I heard his voice so clear.
That hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought I had done that.
Apparently not...........
My intentions came from a place of love........
A place of wanting healing, happiness and joy for those I love.
But every time I take  it back, I hinder the process of my daddy God. 
I get in the way of his plan......
His deliverance............
His restoration............
His healing..............
And most importantly I get in the way of Him shining His love into their lives His way.
Standing for those I love and taking the situation back are not the same.
Standing is praying, showing unconditional love, and most importantly listening and heeding to the voice of God as to what role I am to be in their life at that moment.
I am to TRUST him for their every need.
Just as a child places his or her trust  as they jump into the arms of their daddy.....
I am to trust my daddy God in every area.
He knows my heart......
He knows the enormous amount of love I carry...
He knows the pain I feel for those I love......
He also knows that this daughter of his at times gets impatient and tries to speed up the process......
His process.
I am forever thankful my daddy God loves me and you so much that he continues to teach us!!!
I am laying it down at his feet and this time I will leave it there for his work to be done.
For His ways are better than mine!!!
Isaiah 55:8-9
                                                                 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
                                                    neither are your ways my ways,”
                                                                declares the Lord.
                                              “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
                                                 so are my ways higher than your ways
                                                     and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Trusting Him in ALL things.....
Proverbs 3:5
                                                               Trust in the Lord with all your heart
                                          and lean not on your own understanding;

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…

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 …

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…
