Sheep of His Pasture

Be very careful, then how you live–not as unwise but as wise,
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
Ephesians 5:15-17

Surrender

Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves,
you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin,
which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
~ Romans 6:20 ~

When we surrender, there is no bitterness, no anger, no resentment, no fear! Just complete peace, joy, contentment, and love! Hard as it is to surrender all you feel, all you are, all you have to the Lord, it is oh so much harder to carry it. Don’t let the situations, tribulations, and conflicts of this life be burdensome….for you were never created to carry the baggage that comes from sin!! Let it go, surrender to God, and find the freedom that only comes from the Almighty!

All my love and may the shackles of this life be broken and your heart, spirit, and mind be set free in Christ! ❤

Waiting Once Again!

I am so ecstatic at the way God moves, but let me assure you it is not always easy. There are things in life we all desire. Perhaps a job, a spouse, children, to travel, and on and on the list may go for some. However, I find it so amazing how God moves. No matter my desire (or yours), he moves in his time, not mine, and always for my best (and yours!). Looking back on my life, I can say with confidence that every time God said no to my desires he brought something better than I could have imagined into my life. Every time he asked me to wait, he met my desire to the fullest. Job lost everything in his life that he held dear, but in his heart and soul, deep within his spirit, he knew God had a plan, and what a plan it was indeed. As he waited during the catastrophic struggle of his life, he held tight to his hope in God’s promises, and was blessed beyond measure, more than he could ever have imagined.

I want to encourage you, to tell you, that though you may be walking through the darkest valley, struggling to keep your head above the water, or crying out to God in the moments of loneliness, HE IS WITH YOU. He may be telling you NO to your hearts desire. He may be asking you to WAIT for the storm to pass. He may be telling you YES to things you don’t think you want. Hold tight, pray, seek his face, meditate on his word, and rest in the truth that he WILL work ALL things out for your GOOD and for his GLORY.

God be with you, and may you feel his presence as you wait! All my love ❤

 Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.
Proverbs 8:34

Wait

Waiting Once Again!

Waiting
Anticipating
Yearning for so much more

Seeking
Praying
Crying out for Your will to be done

Hoping
Pressing onward
Stepping out on faith that all will work for my good

Serving
Ministering
Focusing on Your agenda and not my own

Worshiping
Meditating
Waiting on You to move Lord God

See, I have set before you today life and prosperity,
and death and adversity;
in that I command you today to love the LORD your God,
to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments,
that you may live and multiply,
and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.
~ Deuteronomy 30:15-16 ~

Rise Amidst the Adversity!

Aware that I am not in charge
Detours consistently interfere
Vitality wanes with every blow
Ever-present change comes without warning
Reality sinks within the soul
Security is lost
Intense emotions ebb and flow
Tempting me to give up
Yet, with God, I rise above it all
