When I Am UnCertain

Repost from Shaking' the Foundation
April 16th, 2015
*********************************************************************************


I am not immune to uncertainties in life. 
I have my share just as the next person does. 
Times when I have no idea what step to take......
What decision is for the best........
When my judgement is clouded by circumstances.....
And I feel as though I am drowning in my situation.

The misconception that is viewed upon those in the body of Christ is we never have bad days....
No doubts, uncertainties, fear or feelings of weariness and despair......
When we do have those days, we are to smile and act as though nothing is wrong because that would mean we have no faith.
 Or the painted picture of the world is to be a woman or man of faith  we walk through life all sunshine and roses without struggle one.
I have even had some mock me with their words " Where is your Jesus now?"
Wrong answer..... 

I have learned the stronger my faith becomes, the more battles I have.
Therefore I have times when I become so  weary in my flesh, I have my own uncertainties as to how I will overcome the task ahead of me. 
Even Jesus himself cried out to God when he was in the Garden of Gethsemane praying before he was arrested.

Luke 22:42
'Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."

He knew what his fate was and the task that laid ahead of him.
But look what happened after he cried out.....

Luke 22:43
An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.

It is when we cry out to our daddy God he sends the help we desire
The answers we need.......
The peace we long to have wash over and in us. 

My uncertainties do not come from the battles or decisions ahead of me. They come from my own lack of strength and wisdom. 
They will manifest when I lean to my own abilities and not those of my daddy God.
Today I  read these words......

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. 

Proverbs 24:14
Know also wisdom is like honey for you:
If you find it, there is a hope for you,
and your hope will not be cut off. 

Being a woman of faith does not mean I will not have trials and tribulation in this life.
God's word tells us that we will have those. 
He also tells us he will never leave nor forsake us. 
Being a woman of faith  does not mean I will not fall in life, make mistakes or sub-come to the pressure of life. 
What it does mean......
I know who to lean on.....
I know where to turn for wisdom....
I know where my strength comes from.

There is no shame in having uncertainties.
It's is through my weakness  His power is made perfect.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 

When I am uncertain..........

  1. Hi Stacey, shoo, tough post. So true though, the more one's faith grows the more battles there seem to be. We NEED God every day. Sometimes I think I am a little like Jonah, seeking to run away, but there is always that big fish to bring us right back to where God wants us. And He sustains us and strengthens us for what it is He has for us. Great post my friend
    God bless

      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…
