I'm so over believing the lies of my accuser. The accusations of my accuser. I'm choosing life! I'm choosing joy! The joy of the Lord is most certainly our strength. For far too long, I've bent under the pressure of the enemy, listening to his bullshit. I'm done! Jesus didn't die so we could live … Continue reading Busting Out of the Cell
The Old Mule in the Well
Had to share this one, a friend of mine retold it to me earlier today and I simply could not stop my giddy-smile inside. It's a good one! A parable is told of a farmer who owned an old mule. The mule fell into the farmer's well. The farmer heard the mule 'braying' -or-whatever mules … Continue reading The Old Mule in the Well
Thoughts of a Walkabout Day
It's amazing to me what we will find if we are simply paying attention. I have a love/hate relationship with incredibly full days. I am praying for God to give me the energy for the busy ones, and the patience for the quiet ones. The full ones leave me exhausted at the end, yet fulfilled. … Continue reading Thoughts of a Walkabout Day
Free will. The will is a funny thing. It is a gift yet can seem to be a curse. It is to be submitted before God as our Lord, King, Father, friend. That's the best scenario, anyway. Yet, daily, this is a choice, a decision we have. To choose. Oh, the gift of choice. What … Continue reading The Will
Tell me why The mass majority of people Only seek Their own gain To get laid To get paid To get made At the expense of anyone in their way No matter what they think Or feel They get Bulldozed Hearts get wrecked Ambitions get tarnished Destroyed, even Lack of care infects Everything it touches … Continue reading Inner Wrestlings
The Simple Heart
a collaborative conversation Dear one, you are still a child. Don't look at this in terms of a maturity level judged by the world around you. This has nothing to do with your image but your relationship to Me. You are My child, ever-learning, ever-experimenting. You are a scientist, testing new hypotheses daily. Do not … Continue reading The Simple Heart
It's raining, it's pouring I threw on my sweats and hoofed it Out to see the day, headphones in ears What did I do with all of these years Internal speculations got me growing, got me breathing Tryna turn my mind off and start living, just start being Self care can be exhausting … Continue reading 12.17.2015
The Simple Life
Kids have it easy. Right? Can I get a show of hands as to all the "adults" reading who agree? It's rather amazing - from birth, they don't have to do anything to earn our love and affection, much less our care and attention. They simply ARE. They go through life, from day one, learning, … Continue reading The Simple Life
Broken, Yet Made Whole
Broken. It's easy to love broken people when we realize that we, too, are broken. When there's chaos, we must extend consideration. Compassion. When we realize how broken we are, don't mind broken places so much. We feel for them. Compassion. Empathy. Desire to help as there were those that helped us. But, how do … Continue reading Broken, Yet Made Whole
Obedience, or relationship?
In the garden, couldn't God have told Adam and Eve beforehand what consequences would come for both them and every generation after them if they ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? But of course, He most certainly could have. But He didn't. Why? Why watch us, His beloved creation, or so … Continue reading Obedience, or relationship?
