Dear God

Dear God

faith, Grace, Identity in Christ
Dear God, I’m trying. I’m resting in you. Today, I’m reflecting over it all. I know you’ve been with me. You’ve been by my side and in front of me. Lord, sometimes I want to scream! Sometimes I want to cry. I am so strong and I hold things together but I don’t always want to. I have to. People are watching: My husband and children are watching. My family, and church members are watching. Clients and strangers are watching. You have me on display. I’m an example right? That’s what you told me. I’m an inspiration and have to show people how to walk this thing out. I'm a walking epistle. Yeah, and I’m all for that most days. Lord, I’m trying! Reflecting, as I lay here in pain.…

The Authenticity of the Writer

faith
Why I write I enjoy writing immensely. If I could just write and that was all, there would be no issue. Regrettably, that is not the case. Being obedient to the call that the Lord has placed on me is exciting and uncomfortable at the same time. Granted, I have been speaking my mind, and posting scriptures for years on my personal platform. However, using a professional platform to showcase my writing leaves me vulnerable and open in a way that I didn't feel before. Even so, this is what has been asked of me. I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. This is not in question. At the same time, I am being pulled to the front for all to see. As…

It’s Time to Transition

Uncategorized
  A white beautiful butterfly landed on my right shoulder this morning. I was outside moving a chair around so that I am not directly in the sun while having my coffee and morning scripture. Direct sunlight for me hurts my skin terribly. I miss it-the warmth of sitting in the sun typing on my laptop;however, It's temporary. Trusting God, knowing, spiritually I am healed, yet It still has to manifest in the natural. My body has been attacked throughout the years, with this cancer being the biggest attack yet. I can withstand because God is with me. He has given me strength and a strong bold voice. As a result of walking seriously with Him, I know who I am and what I am supposed to do. I am ready…

"You want me to do what, God?"

"You want me to do what, God?"

faith, trust god
How many of you have received a word from the Lord that gave you pause? That made you say, "You want me to do what, God?" I have. I have received a few of those words, that I didn't quite understand, yet most times, I obeyed. The times that I didn't obey, I paid the price. We do suffer many things, not from the enemy or the Lord, but by our own decisions. You do know that, right? Some things are just us. We need to get out of our own way. The Lord says that obedience is better than sacrifice. (1 Samuel  15:22) Also, understand these 3 things. (I cited these 3 from jolly notes.com, but agree with them 100%) #1 God is still God – God is still…

There is more to this than meets the eye…

Grace, Uncategorized
So, if you've been following my blog, you know that I don't normally post more than once per week. But I had to update you guys on what's going on. I am a baby Vegan. Yes! My family and I, spearheaded by my husband Frank, have transitioned to Vegans this past Sunday. Just like that? you ask. Yes, just like that. We made a decision. And everything in life comes down to decisions. You just have to make it and commit to it. This decision comes with many pros, one of which, is the delightful dishes that I have been cooking. Yum!! I have explored new beans, grains and vegetables that I've never eaten before. My oldest daughter said this was the most Veggies she has had in one week.…
