My One Word For 2015


It's amazing that it was three years ago I started participating in the "one word" for the year.
It just doesn't seem that long ago.
But I am so glad I did. 
I love and adore for the word my daddy God has given me for 2015.
"BELIEVE" 
What a powerful word!!!!
It amazes me that I have been referring to this one word for the last 5 months not knowing this was my word for the new year!
God is just so cool that way!!

As 2014 comes to an end, I hear him speaking directly to my heart....
Believe what I have told you.....
Believe in my promises......
Believe that your destiny is blooming brighter that you can imagine......
Believe that I, the Lord thy God, is doing a great work in you!!!!!!
Believe in Me!!!!!!!

It's easy to get swallowed up in  what our circumstances speak....
It's easy to  hear what the world tells us.....
It's even easier to give up when our hard times overwhelming take us to the ground in despair. 
When we are tired and weary and feel as those we can't take another step, it seems the easy thing to do is to just sit down and not move.

However our daddy God says.....
BELIEVE!!!
Believe that job you have been waiting for is here....
Believe that home you have dreamed of is yours.....
Believe that his healing touch has restored every area in your life......
Believe that HIS joy is doing a work inside of you  for others to see His goodness......
Believe what the enemy meant to use to destroy you, God is using to restore you!!!!!
Believe the things that have been on hold are now coming in their entirety.

2014 has been a year of many changes.
It has been a year of growth.
A year of loss......
And gain.
A year of preparation for things to come......
A year of molding and the laying of ground work. 
A year of  purpose. 
(Looking back I can see why He gave me the word purpose for 2014.)

Every step I have walked in 2014 holds a meaning.
Every step has had a reason........
Because in one way or another, they have positioned me for my next season.

As I begin my goodbye process to 2014,  I can say I am thankful for every up and down moment I have walked , and even those I have ran. 
Thankful for lessons learned.....
And wisdom gained.
Thankful for lives touched.........
And those who have touched mine in ways they may never fully understand. 
Thankful for the painful times........
They taught me to find the joy and hold on to the peace.
Thankful for the happy moments......
For the little moments are always larger than life in their own simple,beautiful way.
Thankful for the beauty that emerges from the ashes....
There is always a positive to every negative in life.
Thankful for the light of love......
A light that can penetrate through the thickest of darkness and bring forth a new creation.


As the remaining weeks of 2014 begin to wrap up and the ringing in of 2015 start to explode....
I encourage you........


BELIEVE~

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…
