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.

How many times have I looked out the window only to find myself wishing that I could see my big dream come to life? To recall the number of years spent wishing, hoping, and struggling through just to make it to that big dream being fulfilled, is next to impossible. Continue reading “The Window or The Door”
We lay dormant; therefore, we do not live. Your life right now, right where you are, believe that your circumstances, good or bad, are considered living.
Where is your center? What is your expectation? Continue reading “Centered Expectation”
Picture a cage, the shape is not important. On one side of this cage, you have the popularity of modern day contemporary Christianity. On the other side, we have the Theologian preacher who provides the traditionalism of deeper Christianity. Neither side is wrong, just different.
What I am about to share, the majority will probably disagree, and that’s okay. This is not an opinion of mine, this is a perspective of what my eyes and my heart see. Continue reading “the common cage”
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)

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 clearly, hear more clearly and am doing what is according to His path for me.

“Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers.” Most of us have heard the song by Garth Brooks “Unanswered Prayers” right? Recently I was reminded that I need to Thank God for my unanswered prayers.
God is for me; God is not against me. Unanswered prayers, if He is for me, why the unanswered prayers?
