It’s my birthday…

It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to…

Not to worry…it’s a happy cry!!

I just feel so overwhelmed with the spirit of God. To truly know what it is to experience His love is beyond measure. Something I really struggle to find the words to describe…

I started my day this way as I met Him, like I usually do first thing in prayer:

 Dear Lord, I thank you for another year of opportunities to choose joy. To live in gratitude. I failed more times than I got it right, but you loved me anyway. So grateful for your love, grace & mercy…That you stood right there and waited for me to look up to you.

You never desire perfection, you just want my heart… and now I see me through your eyes. And I can love myself, because you loved me first. And I desire only your love and affection and approval. Thank you for never leaving me alone…

Today and always I ask you shower me with your glory. Make me new in you. Use me Lord. Let your light shine through me. My birthday wish is to live only for you. Thank you for your abounding love. Amen

What Is Your Seed?

Zero multiplied by zero equals zero.

We all learn this from an early age.  How then, do we get caught up in the thinking that if we give nothing, God will multiply it into something?  Yes, God can and does make something out of nothing.  But, regarding us, that is not his modus operandi.  God is a God of multiplication, and putting that principle to work requires us to deposit something into the equation.  And despite what we may tell ourselves, we all have something.  Even if it is as tiny as a mustard seed.

I believe this is a time where God is asking us to take that mustard seed, ability, resource, measure of time, or even mental or emotional baggage—whatever it may be that he has been highlighting to you, regardless of how unconventional, unfit, or insufficient it may seem—and step out and plant it.

I will instruct you…

“TRUST ME…Don’t fall into the trap of being constantly on the go. Many, many things people do in My Name have no value in My kingdom. To avoid doing meaningless works, stay in continual communication with Me. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” – Jesus Calling daily devotional 2/9/17

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you”. —PSALM 32:8 NASB

I have learned that to escape the feeling of loneliness does not mean to fill all my available time with random activities, rather to be intentional about my day and who I allow to pour into me. I am a product of those I spend the most time with…

I now can see very clearly what and who support me on the journey that I so desire to move…
I am grateful that God instructs me clearly and leads me to His word to find guidance in determining which path to take; and MOST importantly meets me ANYTIME i want to consult His opinion. Trying to figure it out on my own…attempting to control it all…was exhausting and unfulfilling and left me very anxious and lonely.
I have been so blessed to meet and get to know the most incredible individuals during the last few weeks. People who were literally steps away to thousands of miles away…but because I have been obedient to take action when I felt the nudge, God has blessed me beyond belief with the most perfectly gifted people at the most perfect time. As a result I have moved forward faster than I could have ever dreamed…

thought to ponder…If it doesn’t come easy, it may not be the correct path at the right time (and that does not exclude relationships)

OR

perhaps it is indeed the right path, but the adversary is attempting to distract you for the blessings that await….more on that another time….
