I Have Better......

 I can relate to this picture in several ways. Holding to the things I love in life, at times, can be a downfall for me. I clutch to the small with the belief this is the best I can do. I put restrictions on my daddy God as I live my daily life in a complacent safe zone; a area where no growth is available and a season that has come to its end. The reality is I get comfortable and convince myself I am right where I need to be.

And all the while He is telling me "Trust me. I have better."

 The definition of trust..... to depend on, believe, have faith, and assurance in. And yet I continue to cling to what I think is best. The truth, my truth, is the struggle I have been battling within myself and my reasoning behind it. Though I feel my reasons are warranted, my complacency however is not.
The world will have me to believe what I am holding in my hands is it, all there is for me to receive in this life.

That's the worlds version
However Jesus gives me a promise, a promise for us all.

John 10:10 (NKJV)
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Abundantly...... more, greater, excessive and exceedingly. (Strongs Concordance)

His word says abundantly.
To live in abundance it is up to me to let go of the many things I clutch tightly to and trust in the things He has already prepared for me.  Greater will be my wisdom, exceedingly more will my heart love, and excessive grace will I be able to extend. It is not easy when I am called to let go, to see beyond the moment and trust there is more but in the releasing is where I gain.

When my hands hold the brokenness of those I love; He tells me " place their pieces at my feet."
When my heart stores the painful journeys of life; He speaks one word, " surrender."
When I grip the small and refuse to let go, He is there holding out His hand telling me.....
" Trust me. I have better."

And then comes the abundance of physical things.  Maybe it's a financial need, a relationship status or a geographical move.  He desires for me to have those things in abundance as well. However I have to be willing to move my feet when and where He says go.  So does my struggle come in the form of my feet not wanting to move?  Maybe its my heart more than my feet?  Whatever the reason, my reason, holding on to seasons reaching their end will only keep me stagnant in my life.

When my feet move, His favor pours over me like a cloak of honey.
When my steps line up  according to His will, the windows of heaven open for His blessings to rain.
And when I trust His plan for my life, it is then I live more abundantly.

I know my life is on the brink of a new season, a place of growth and abundance, and as I take my first small steps, I look up with my small teddy bear in my grasp and see my daddy God reaching out and once again telling me............

" Trust Me I have Better."

His Daughter,


Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)
You will show me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

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…
