Finding your ‘free’ doesn’t always mean sitting comfortably on your deck by the lake as you read a book and cozy up to a perfect cup of #coffee. Sometimes finding your ‘free’ means taking it all in – everything that God has given you AND has freed you from, that is. Restless nights can be a pain in the neck, but the total rest that the Lord gives afterward can be complete bliss of freedom.
Sometimes I can clutter my mind with a million little things of every little thing before sorting it all out, moving to the next step, and somehow still feeling a sense of incompletion when it’s all said and done.
Finding your ‘free’ means being able to smile and say thank you after watching God having sorted it all out for your good.
Finding you ‘free’ means writing your blog with persistence, even when you feel you have nothing too important to say, but God inspires you as you happily type along, equipping you with a portion of Himself and a God-inspired word to share with another – YOU.
Finding your ‘free’ means knowing and understanding that He is the source where you can always find it, the place where it all just makes total sense.
Finding your ‘free’ means the freedom to move in a godly way – and to have no qualms about it. Just be.

Delight thyself in the Lord, and He well give thee the desires of things heart.
This is your time designated for sleep. What are you going to do with it?
Sometimes I have to remind myself, almost like a child at naptime, that I should have one focus at times of rest: REST.
Put down the restless thoughts – especially after giving them all to God – and let God be your Champion! Rest beautifully as He works behind the scenes, and let Him fill you with His perfect peace.
– a cleansing; a renewal; the start of something new
As I listen to the sounds of the rain outside my window on this early Saturday morning, although I am inside the walls of my house, I get a sense of cool refreshment and excited anticipation of things to come.
I am thankful for the rain – a time when God sends renewal, no matter how small or big.
As you read, and as I write, you may come to understand that this message is for you. Know that there is always a refreshing power found in the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ. Only He can bring new life. Let God clear the pathway to your future – one that you fully and wholly put your complete and total trust in Him.
He will never let you down.
Amid the busyness of the day, God still guided my hand.
So, on yesterday, this was my topic of focus, but I didn’t quite get around to completing my three lines because I was so busy and had worked a bit late.
Today, I got to see the results of God working His wisdom in me. I’ve come to know that as I continue to give God the use of my hands and craft, I understand that His glory will be prominently displayed – no matter what – and that my household will remain blessed by Him. Thank you, Lord, for that.

When God says to cast your cares upon Him, He really does mean it.
This isn’t a conversation of how rough or tough things are, but it is one of discovering a weight that can be lifted.
When a good friend tells you, “Don’t worry about it – I’ll handle it,” do you let them cover your back, or do you worry over it? Trusting a good friend comes easy. That’s what God does for us when He tells us to cast our cares upon Him (I Peter 5:7). He willingly takes care of the heavy lifting while we watch His handiwork and increase our faith in Him.
That’s what God did for me – remove the weight, increase my faith, and deliver ultimate peace. Thank You, Mon Dieu (My God).
When your standing on the right side, no thing can do you harm. When you’re standing on the right side, you realize that God is on your side. When you’re standing on the right side, God will begin to move things and work them for your best.
When you’re standing on the right side, God will grant you extraordinary favor; He will strengthen your footsteps, will guide you into all truths, and will weaken your adversary.
For He IS God; and He IS God alone.
Blessings, Peace, and Favor,

If it had not been for the Lord on my side,
Where would I be? Where would I be?
I’ve come to realize that the Lord is always – and has always been – on my side.
As I continue to walk in humble submission to Him, I learn even more about His unending love. He’s been good; He’s been kind. He’s been the kind of God that cares for my every need. He challenges my weaknesses and beckons me to serve Him all the more. He gives comfort, guidance, wisdom, and goodness.
When I look upon Him, I know that He is love. In Him there is no failure…no mistakes. He is a God of abundance, the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2). I look to Him for supplication. I eagerly await His affirmed outcome.
I am ultimately thankful to my Lord God and Savior for keeping me. He has never let me down – even when I have been afraid. He affirms my trust in Him, and further proves that I can place my comfort and cares in Him, for I KNOW that He loves me, and has prepared a special purpose and place for us.
God, I LOVE You, and I completely and wholly DWELL IN YOU.

What you think is trouble may not actually be anything; you just have to exercise your God-given authority in the Lord.
