Expectations

Who is it that you’re expecting from?
Each time you put people above me you get disappointed.
People will fail you- children, husband, parents, friends. They are feeble. Their minds change at the drop of a hat. I never change. My love for you will never fail. Depend on me. Put your expectation in me. Pray to me, seek me, ask me. When you call on me I will answer. I will tug on your heart strings and cause you to change. Stop looking at others and expecting. Give it to me and look inward.  I am God that does not change.
Guard your heart for this is where all things come from. Protect it. Give it all to me and I will show you what to do. Fall into sink with my spirit and allow me to lead you to a place of rest. This is what I want for you my child. Rest in me. Expect only from Me your maker.

Be Still

What happens when you are still?

One word that described my journey in 2015 was #BeStill. What does it really mean to be still? Dictionary says that still means:

a) remaining in a place or at rest; motionless; stationary

b) from from sound or noise,

c) free from turbulence or commotion

d) stillness or silence

e) to become still or quiet


Its when we are still that our lives can change dramatically. We allow ourselves to be used and ministered to by God. Do you hear his voice in your daily life? As you drive, as you are at work, can you hear him whisper to you? What is he saying? Are you listening? There is nothing like being in his presence all the time. His love will never leave, his presence is constant. So in this fast paced world that we live in, let’s take the time to stop and listen for in all of the chaos He is speaking. I am listening. I hope that you are too!

Hurt

Have you ever been hurt or felt hurt?

I believe that at some point in our lives we have been hurt by someone or something. The question is what do you do when you get hurt? For me it was easy to put up walls. I used these walls to protect myself from others. The scars are deep, so the walls are high. If you  tried to get close I wouldn’t allow it. I just pushed people away. That’s how I lived most of my life. What I hadn’t realized is that these walls that I had erected because of past hurts were hurting me, hindering me and hurting others.

I can see now that as the walls are coming down that I am free. Free to live and love, free to hope and dream, and free to give love and hope.

There is no doubt that I am still scared of being hurt, but I wont let the hurt consume me because of this love that fills me. This love gives me the time and space to deal with hurt. heal that which is broken. This love I have is found in Jesus. He has come to heal that which was broken. I am glad that I let Him in and have allowed Him to tear down the walls that I had built.

Will you allow Him to tear down your walls?

Life

When did it all start? and when will it end? Only God knows the answer to our end. We live not for ourselves but for others.  We are to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are here to make a difference in the lives of those around us. We are not our own, we belong to Him. He bought us with a price when He died for us. Let us live the life that He so desires us to live. Abundantly
