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.

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…
