Living Prophecy Fulfilled

Today has been a great day. By relinquishing myself, I was able to allow God to fulfill and fill my day in His way.

I’m grateful for God’s movement, plans, and markers in m life.

I know that He is granting prophecy fulfilled. But what I must do is fulfill my portion that God has required of me to fulfill, the the rest will increasingly mobilize towards God’s perfect outcome within my life.

I look forward to those things of the Lord. I discard my flesh. I discard those things which disrupt peace, and I firmly grab ahold of God’s truth, His perfect plan, and His righteous regulation as it pertains to me.

Happy New Year to me! And God’s peace be with you!

– P.S., Kaye –

And just like that…

If I could tell the Lord one thing, I’d tell Him “Thank You for this pivotal moment of change.”

With today comes new energy.

With today comes new strength.

With today comes a new perspective … a renewed sense of passion … a new moment.

This summer … I wouldn’t have it changed for the world. Each new moment gave a way to the next. And each new next gave way to purpose fulfilled.

What I can say is that rest has been well…a preparative process for the next season.

Today was…IS…a new day granted and given by God’s perfect peace – and sweet release of promise fulfilled.

Love you, Lord.

Thankful…

I’m thankful for a day of rest.

I’m thankful for a day of peace and relaxation.

I’m thankful for a day when God can pour back into and rejuvenate us – and for allowing us to see and experience a sense of calm from it all.

I’m thankful for a good husband and for good examples set before me.

I’m thankful for the blood of Christ Jesus, who gave it all so that we may live – all for our eternal benefit.

Today I am just really – THANKFUL!

God Will Give You the Strength That You’ll Need to Finish

Just when you feel as though your strength has run out – and there is literally no steam left – God will REVIVE.

The strength may be given for you, for your needs, and just enough to get you to the next step.

Asking God for His help will get you it; receiving the blessings from it is just an incredible added-in bonus.

I am incredibly grateful for God’s display of love for my husband and me through the friendships that He has granted us to experience. Without the blessing of this, we may not have met our next step so suddenly! May the Lord forever bless your homes, hearts, and lives because of your “being there” and for your willingness to serve and love. Thank you.

Clean Out the Old to Make Room for the New

“Cleaning out the old to make room for the new” is saying that sounds much like a cliché, right? But that saying does not ring more true than on THIS day.

In the past couple of days, so many old things have left my house, but they were all went out for very good causes:

  • Someone gained a place of comfort and peaceful rest
  • A cute little family gained the ability to sustain their child while on the “go”
  • Others gained items that would assist in making home a functional, clean, comfy, and special place
  • Others gained the opportunity to dress their homes in creative ways
  • And another gained the ability to add real value to their dwelling place.

Sometimes, in our letting go of the “old” that once added value and meaning to our lives, we gain so much more as we allow God to cleanse and renew old spaces.

One would imagine that in cleaning out old or cluttered spaces, that there would be no intention of filling it with something else. But sometimes, the Lord has you clean out that old space to allow Him to fill it with something new, more valuable and more useful in this new season of your life.

As I write, I write this in hopeful anticipation, waiting as the Lord fills our new spaces with what it is that He chooses.

Will you clean out the old and allow God to place something new in it’s space?

A Name Above All Names

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9-11

You ARE Equipped

You are equipped, even when you don’t think you are. You are equipped to move forward in the FREEDOM AND STRENGTH that the Lord has given to you!

Confusion is not made for you, nor will it deter you.

You will walk in favor and in peace and with the breath of the Lord as your support, because, after all, YOU have been chosen, tried, prepared, and ready to do the work that the Lord has equipped you for.

You are able to with the strength of the Lord. Never ever lose your focus; but always find new strength and new ground in HIMGod, our Father in Truth and Love.

Exercising Gratitude

Putting prayers of thanksgiving to God should always be a first – in thought AND in action.

Although it is at the end of my day, I will give thanksgiving and gratitude to my Lord for His gracious blessings in my life.

Sometimes you have to take a different route to get to the finish line, and in taking the new route, God is able to show you some very unique and unexpected things along the way. Things that enlighten your viewpoint of Him; things that allow us to see His unique pattern of blessing and operation within our life. Things that allow you to discover more of Him and things that allow you perfect growth.

I’ll never be ashamed of taking God’s way, because when I follow in His direction my path is clear and the outcome is God’s perfection. And for that, I am most grateful.

Thank You, Lord!

False alarm or FIRE alarm?

So, this morning we were awakened at 8am by the harsh, blaring sound of the fire alarm ringing throughout our hotel.

Jolted out of a restful state of sleep, our immediate reaction was to respond by getting up and getting out.

As we prepared to leave our hotel room, you could hear a little chaos in the hallway, but not much. The alarm still continued to sound!

We got ourselves together; I glanced at the back of our hotel door from across the room to get a view of the fire escape map. Things seemed to settle down inside the hallway a bit, but the alarm continued to sound loudly.

Then it stopped.

My husband says, “You still respond to the plan – you go even if the alarm stops.” So, we grabbed our bags and shoes, then we left the room.

As we walked down the hall (sort of on auto-pilot), I couldn’t help but notice that it was me, my husband, a young man behind us, and one person trailing far behind him.

Y’all.

FOUR PEOPLE.

My husband and I along with the young man were walking fairly quickly as we headed for the stairwell. I don’t recall seeing that fourth person ever come through the door and down the stairwell behind us.

When we got to the stairwell I said,“Maybe it was just a test to see if we all would respond.” But as we got further to the bottom of the stairwell, the aroma of something having been burnt was in the air.

When we arrived downstairs, the lobby was full of life: people eating breakfast, business meetings, and a cheeky hotel staff. Outside, firemen in full uniform and firefighting gear were moving about hurriedly. Two totally different existences. So my husband commissioned me to ask the staff what was happening.

Burnt toast. Someone burnt toast. The same thing had happened two days ago…

Hmph! Lol!

We decided that since we were already downstairs, we’d stick around for breakfast. I captured the moment with a few photos, got to meet some of the firemen, and received a toy firetruck from the first responders.

As we prepared our plates, sat down then ate, I thought about the false alarm that rang out as a FIRE alarm – the significance of it, and the fact that hardly anyone took notice of it. Had it been a true emergency, the results may have had a much different ending.

My thoughts journeyed on, and as I reflected, I thought about a plan that was already put in place for all of our benefit.

We often don’t want to respond to alarms in our lives – changes, disruptions, catastrophes – no matter how minor or major. But we have to realize that it behooves us to respond, as our response will lead us down a pre-prepared path that has life-saving results. What if it had been a REAL FIRE? How many lives would have been changed simply because we didn’t take it seriously or feel like dealing with the chaos?

As my husband and I talked more about the experience during breakfast, he shared that the plan is the same – fitting for any environment – just like we learned in elementary school. The alarm resounds, and we respond by following the universal plan for making it out alive. The perfectly prepared plan and path is already set to work for our good. All we have to do is respond – and the perfect outcome will come with ease.

Getting MORE Out of Traveling

Traveling isn’t a one-sided deal. Often when we travel, it awakens out minds and awareness to more.

Traveling refreshes our sense of familiarity while introducing us to new experiences, new memories, and new pathways. It allows us to explore. It reminds you of something old while clearing a path for something very, very new.

That is what I was able to so today. Reminisce, relax and refresh – and I got to spend it with a very special someone: my hubbie.
