Wondering Weight

It is 3:00 am and my brain is working overtime, the weight of the wondering, over what?  What could be keeping me from enjoying a night of uninterrupted sleep?  In a moment’s notice, life changed, out of nowhere, life took a turn for the better.

The thoughts that weigh on our minds in the middle of the day, or the night, are not always heavy thoughts.  Generally, when someone lies awake at night the first thought is, “they are struggling with something”.  Why does it have to appear as a struggle?  It is a rarity for the world to mention the lighthearted wonders that keep us awake.

~A missed moment of hope for someone in need is a blessing not shared~

Together We Touch the Sky

Gathering pieces of life along the journey wondering how it will all fit together.  Where do we go from here, which direction is the next step? Behind or in front?  What does it look like?  The power that is within our spirit will give us the answers to all our questions as we take on the adventure ahead of us. Creating memories, the making of a story never imagined, reaching beyond the limitations set by the world.

Anything is possible if you just believe, He said. (Mark 9:23)

Listening and Doing

In the moments of life when we walk away from someone or something that is holding us captive, we attempt to focus more on the important things in life. My focus recently hasn’t been right where it should have been. On more than one occasion, I thought it was God not talking to me.  I looked in the mirror and realized, I am not listening and doing as God called me to do. Instead, my focus has been on what He called others to do.

You think you know him, you think you know her, you think you know yourself. Then you realize the moment that God gave you an open window to see a glimpse of the path that is open far and wide for all He has for YOU. So why do we question God exposing us to such behavior of ourselves or others? The truth guides and helps the eyes re-focus and gain the freedom from captivity that God so desires for us. We are exposed so we may see internally the need for a change in behavior, a change of patterns, a change of heart. In order to change these, we have to listen, acknowledge and actually DO something about it.

You may lose “friends or family”, but you will never lose God if you truly are listening and doing right by His word.  I know there are people who walked out of my life for whatever reason they have, and, I am good with it because I am healthier for it. The window was open and I now see clear, hear more clearly and am doing what is according to His path for me.

His Reflection

HE SENDS A MESSAGE …WE MIRROR IT

I moved to Florida in April 2012, and it’s been an awesome journey.  My spare room is what I use as my craft room, office and well the “catch all room.”  I started purging things today, just as most of us do at the start of a new year.  Start fresh, clean slate, organized and ready to take on the next chapter, right?

As I am going through papers and old stuff, I have this soft nudge in my heart telling me to stop working and look in the mirror.  God, what am I supposed to be looking for when I look in the mirror, I wonder. A couple of questions come to mind, “What does my next chapter, my next 364 days’ look like?”  “What is it that God desires for me to learn in this chapter?”

The Power of Christ

Let your guard down.  Let go and let God.  It’s in God’s hands.  It’ll be okay.  Have faith.  God’s got this.

Haven’t we all heard our friends and family say this to us?  I am first to admit, I have even shared these same short blurbs to my very own friends and family.  While each one is a very true short and to the point statement, personally, I struggle with each of them.  Now, I am a firm follower of Christ, and I do have Faith, the reality is, I am of the flesh as is everyone on earth.  The golden question, “how do you know when to…?”

Divine Joy

Even in the struggles that we go through we rarely consider them a “Divine Joy.”

As I am going through my new chapter in this life, I find the people that I encounter are intriguing.  I have been in the world of the homeless and poor, and I have been associated with the world of the rich and wealthy where appearance, titles, and dollars matter.  Of course, there is nothing the same in these two worlds, right?
