My Path...His Light


My path in life appears to be on a change of course. 
A directional shift....
An uprooting of the familiar and a journey of the unknown.....
Removal from where I am to positioning me where I need to be.....
Emotionally and physically.

I did not anticipate or see the impending changes and to be honest I did not ask for them. 
I have been pretty content in my little happy place, why change it?
The irony of it all is our daddy God never leaves us where we are in life, including our content little happy places. 
It is there we become complacent and stagnant.
When our growing stops and our lives become dry.

And then there are those times when all hell breaks loose and our path becomes covered in darkness....
When everything that was so right becomes a storm right in front of your eyes.
A storm sent  to blind our vision....
To batter our hearts.....
To break our spirit......
And shake us to our core.
I don't know about you, but I do not like being blind sided in life.
I am ok with change as long as it's a change I am well prepared for.
I want to know when , how and the reasoning for such changes. 
That's the human side of me.

As I traveled over the weekend to my home church in Texas, I had several hours  for just me and my daddy God to have a conversation. 
Pouring out my heart to him concerning this new storm, this bump in my path .....
Telling him how hurt, broken and tired I had become.....
Asking him "why" and "how come".....
Questions after questions rolling from my heart to his ears....
Tear after tear.......
Mile after mile......
Sharing my most heartfelt emotions, I look up and the sun has broke through the clouds, gleaming over the road , lighting my path.

It was  then and there I was reminded I am not alone.
 He is my light and my lamp.
He is there to guide me.
Heal me.....
Restore me......
Hold me up........
And love me through it all never to leave nor forsake me. 
I am never truly alone....
And neither are you.

I do not know where this new path will take me. 
Or all the changes that will take place along the way.
Nor do I know it's purpose.
But what I do know.....
It is speaking His word in and over my circumstances that brings light in the darkness.....
 His word is the lamp that shines under my feet for each step I take.

If you are on a new uncharted path....
A path that you can not see the end....
You are not alone and there is always a light to guide you....
The light of our daddy God.

My Path.....His Light~

  1. Wow Stacey, I just found your blog a few minutes ago and subscribed to it. This posting is so beautifully written and so timely for me because my husband's sister has a son who is in his mid-to-late 40's and he is suffering with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). He is going down fast and his parents are devout believers in Christ. They have been hit hard with this and so many other things here lately. They are in their 70's. I send them cards to try to encourage them and lift them up. Your posting here is just perfect--may I please include it with their next card? I promise to give you credit. Thank you for your consideration.

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…
