A Chosen Daughter



The changing of life seasons can be joyous and yet there are some that can be difficult. I have discovered in this season of my life I am having a hard time finding who I am, or finding my place I should say. 

I am a mom ,a title which will never change. However my role has changed since both my girls are grown. No more running after children, homework, sporting events or sleep overs. 

I am a grandmother who is blessed to witness joy in life through the eyes of my grandchildren and a new found love that can not be measured.

I am a sister whose goal growing up was to make my younger siblings lives miserable with my constant grief giving as the eldest. Now we are more than siblings. We are friends with a bond  that can not be undone .

 I am a child, no matter my age,  who shares my mom's beautiful strength and my dad's compassionate  heart for the sick. 
I am a friend who cherishes my deep rooted relationships; those filled with loyalty, love and respect.

But when I look in the mirror and strip away all those titles I ask myself,.......
" Who am I? " " Where is my place in life?"

Have you ever wondered your place when life changes? When the children have grown and gone, siblings scattered in different states,  parents are moving towards their golden years, and what once was no longer is......

My daddy God tells me exactly who I am.

" I have created you in My very own imagine."( Genesis 1:27)
But Lord you never question your worth and I do............

"Know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made."( Psalm 139:14)
But Lord I look like a piece of pottery with too many cracks to fill......

"Your name is written on the palms of My hands " (Isaiah 49:16)
Why Lord? I have allowed so many things to have place in my life that is not of You........

"Nothing will ever separate you from My love." (Romans 8:35)
As many times as I may fall in life, you mean absolutely nothing Lord??

" I chose and adopted you to be My daughter through faith in Jesus Christ."  (Ephesians 1:5)

I am a woman created in His very own imagine, fearfully and wonderfully made whose name is written on the palms of His hands having nothing to ever separate me from His love......
 I am a chosen!!

Through every season in my life, my title's responsibilities will vary and change; who I am in God will not.

My place and who I am  rests in Him.......

A Chosen Daughter

  1. A.M.E.N!!!! I too am struggling to find out who I am in the moment. Its a tenuous thing that keeps changing. But you are so right, who we are in Christ NEVER changes. I am so grateful that we can start at that point, and figure out the rest with Him.

    On another note, thank you for sending me over to "Blessed is She" Blessed am I because of it :)

    God bless my precious friend!

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 …

Sometimes.... I Cry

Why is it society deems crying as a weakness? Little boys are taught one criteria to be a man is not to cry. Little girls who cry are labeled as too emotional. It seems shedding tears is frowned upon in the grand scheme of life, however truth be told........ tears are the voice of our emotions.

I tend to cry at the drop of a hat these days. Maybe it is hormones or lack of, maybe I am going through the "change" of life, or maybe just maybe my heart has become more sensitive to the things that surround me? I choose to believe it's the latter. I choose to believe my daddy God has answered my prayer when I asked Him to allow me to see others through His eyes.

Sometimes. I. Cry.

And I'm not alone. 

John 11:35 is only two words, two heartfelt words.........
"Jesus wept."

Scripture allows us to see the depth of His love for Lazarus when He heard of his death. Through his tears, we see the voice of his heart, we hear the sound of his emotions. If Jesus can weep,…

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…
