Just What I Needed!

As I am preparing for an INCREDIBLY busy September, I'm beginning to get a little bit overwhelmed, waking at 2am, making mental lists in my head, not able to sleep. Not good for a Monday morning. And of course, as God knows each of us intimately, knows exactly what we need and when we need it, I open my devotions this morning to this verse.

Psalms 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

There is a LOT going on right now. God continues to supply our every single need. (I didn't say wants, I said NEEDS) And then sometimes he blesses us with a want, just because he loves us SO much. But he knows my every thought...he knows how to speak to me...and he's reminding me to rest. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time. HE will accomplish what needs to be done. HE will finish the GOOD work he's begun in me. THANK YOU LORD!!!

Lack of Blogging

I wonder sometimes if I should just forget about sleep in order to blog, since I can't seem to find the time to do it. It's either this or Facebook and I'm connected to more people on FB....I'm not sure ANYONE reads my blog.........:::crickets chirping:::......see, I thought not! ;)

I'm embarking on new journeys and I think God is testing me to see JUST HOW MUCH I'm willing to surrender for Him. I'll let you know if I pass.... ;)

Healing Rain

In early December 2009, my dear friend, Melissa Espiritu, was given the diagnosis of a rare, aggressive form of stage 4 gastric cancer. She is a pastor's wife, mother of 6 beautiful girls, ages 19-6, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a dear, precious friend.

God is using this journey of pain & disease in Melissa's life to bring glory to himself. Doctors, with scientific knowledge, had given Melissa 3 months to make memories, spend time with her family & friends, and say goodbye. God, on the other hand, is revealing himself to people in amazing, incredible ways, and is giving Melissa strength, energy, and most of all....healing.

As He draws different people, from different denominations, each week together in Melissa's family room, surrounding her with song, prayer, praise, prophesy and HEALING, HE is becoming the BEACON OF HOPE that our city, our county, so DESPERATELY needs!

If we, as Christians, as those who have FAITH in Jesus Christ, believe that God is EXACTLY who he says he is, and believe HIS WORD is true, then WE BELIEVE that he is the God of MIRACLES, and that our dear, precious friend, Melissa, will be COMPLETELY healed, live a long, healthy life, and see ALL of her daughters grow into beautiful grown women of God, just like their momma!

Closing Out The Year

I'm not going to waste time explaining my lack of writing, because by now, you all know what a horrible blogger I am. I also won't waste your time by promising to write more in the coming year because I really don't know that I can. But I'll's that?

This year has been full of ups & downs, as most people can say. Personally, I'm at a place, spiritually, that I've never been before. My faith is stronger, my trust is deeper and the refining fire has been H.O.T.!!!

I'm a woman of few words, but I pray each day that my actions will reflect my character & integrity, and that others will be inspired to live & BE for God, as they take THEIR steps of faith in the new year.

Voice of Truth

I've just been thinking a lot this morning about all the "things" we do to feel loved and accepted. I pray that I have and will continue to instill in my children that there is NOTHING they have to do to be loved and accepted. God loves us because he created us. There is nothing that this world can tell me or do to me that's going to change that. I CHOOSE to listen & believe the Voice of Truth.
