Knowing God Is......


 Faithful, Merciful, Powerful, Gracious, Love, Aware Of My Struggles, , Ready to Forgive, Willing to Help, and The One Who Loves Me. 


I am so glad God is God and I am not.
I have a hard enough time managing my own little world sometimes much less the world of others.
I am an imperfect woman, who falls in this life regardless how many times I try my best to be perfect.
Perfect in my choices? No as I've made my fair share of wrong ones.
Perfect in showing grace to all ?  Honestly here recently that has been a struggle in my life but I am walking through it with in baby steps. 
Perfect in my actions towards others who hurt me? Not really sure how that on is going , but I am striving to do better and show the unconditional love of Christ, as He always shows me. 

The older I get the more I see myself trying to NOT make mistakes. I am determined with everything inside of me to be all I have been created to be, and what I am learning time and time again, I am not perfect nor will I ever be.

I am going to fall in this life. We all do. 
I am going to make mistakes. It's what I learn from them and I how I apply those lessons to my life determines my growth. 
My best intentions may not always be the correct ones, and my emotions may overrule my common sense from time to time, and the bottom line remains; I will be imperfect, but my daddy God will always remain perfect. 


2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power  of Christ may rest upon me.

 Moving into 2016  I will continue be a woman whose trust remains in my daddy God.
A woman who heeds His word, and who seeks Him in my failures and my triumphs.
He will never fail me.

  3. Hi Stacey, I feel the same way about mistakes, yes I will keep making them, but I also keep trying not to. The word says we grow from glory to glory. We keep improving, growing, getting there, but then the enemy keeps trying harder too so it does seem as though we haven't gotten anywhere in a hurry, when in fact we have.

    It is by God's grace and mercy that we overcome daily. Great post my friend.

    God bless

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…
