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~

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…
