Scripture 

Let everyone give all their praise and thanks to the lord! For here’s why- He is better than anyone could ever imagine. Yes, He’s always so loving and kind and it never ends! So,go ahead and let everyone know it! Tell the world how he broke through and delivered you from the power of darkness and has gathered us together from all over the world. He has set us free to be His very own! 
Some of us once wondered into the wilderness like desert nomads, with no true direction or dwelling place; starving, thirsting, staggering. We became desperate and filled with despair. Then we cried out “LORD HELP UP, rescue us!” And he did.

You’re not finished 

Life is a marathon of pain, heartache, joy, peace and redemption. Before you run an actual marathon you train for it. You train your body for the brutal parts, you even change what you eat. We are called to run the marathon in love, joy, patience, kindness and peace. But most importantly that we run our race with Him. He is running with us. He will never leave us. He will never forsake us. He goes before. He is in us. We are called to love in such a way that people near us believe that the gospel is true. Run well. Finish well. Whatever that has happened in the past does not define your run. Keep running. Keep training. Seek Him and you will find rest. His yoke is easy. I am renewing my mind daily to this marathon. I desire to finish well. I desire for more is Him. I want to trust Him more. YOU’RE NOT DONE!!!

Heavy Heart

  

Hard conversations, real conversations make for a heavy heart. I love being challenged. I hate it in the moment when I am being confronted but the more I soak in the truth words spoken over me, I realize that the only answer to my brokenness is more of Jesus. I am soaking in this Psalm. “The valley of the deepest darkness You remain close to me and lead me all the way……….the comfort of your love takes away my fear….You anoint me with the frangrance of Your Holy Spirit. You give me all I can drink of You until my heart overflows.” Soak in this. Praying for more for me and all. Praying that I can be so firm in my identity in Him that nothing can stop me. Praying that I run to Him for everything. Praying that I am reminded by my love that it’s not about me. It’s about living out the Gospel. It’s about loving well. I pray that the aroma of Christ is pouring out of me. I pray for real transformation #livelovehope #lovewins #holyspiritcome #hope #passiontranslation #psalm23 #transformation 

Life is Short 

I was sitting in Thompson Cancer Center for an appointment and it was the most beautiful and saddest moments of my life. I was already nervous about the appointment thinking about all the outcomes that could happen after this appointment. If I’m being really honest I was really more concerned about myself than anything or anyone else. (I’ll talk about that later!)

When I first arrived I checked in, gave my info, looked around, thought about stuff, filled out paperwork then I sat down with nothing to do besides embrace and be in the moment. 

I finally looked around and stopped thinking about me, me and more of me, I felt deep pain for the women, teenagers and men sitting with me. 

I sat back and listened in on some of the conversations  everyone was having. Some patients were just there to get blood work done, some where there to meet with their doctor and the others that were there were supporting the patient.

 I looked over at one women who had no hair and she had two of her friends with her.  I listen in on her conversation and my thought was (I bet she is so sad, sad about her hair (I would be!), sad that she has cancer, sad that she’s here). BOY, was I wrong! She was full of joy and hope and love.

I listened into a couple more conversations and it was all “normal” talking. Nothing depressing. Nothing about cancer, just everyday life!

That day changed me forever. I went to my appointment and thought “whatever the results were I choose life and joy!”

I was very disappointed in myself, embarrassed that I care so much about my hair, the way I look and what others think of me. 

I look up to those brave and courageous people. I want more of what they have. Which I know is strange Bc I am healthy as the world sees us. But in reality they are more healthy than I am right now!

Daily they choose

Life, joy, peace, hope, no drama, no gossip and they hold on to the promises. 

I don’t choose this daily.  I want to but my life gets hard and I want to quit. I know it’s a poor excuse but I am being brutally honest. 

I left the appointment in awe of The Lord. 

This world is so broken, life hands you poop sometimes and even cancer but if we choose life and Jesus then it looks very  different. It looks like HOPE. 

We are only here on earth for a moment. I want my moment to be amazing and I want my moment to be what and how He wants me to be and do!!

In pain, hurt, disease and sadness- CHOOSE JESUS!! He is the healer, He is the great physician, He gives life!! Open your hands and receive the living water that He has for you. 

Stop complaining, moping, being bitter about the past or present- open your hands and receive the real love and truth.

He is ALIVE 

I woke up this morning thinking about Easter coming up. I am not ready. What I mean by I am not ready is that my heart isn’t in a place of really remembering and being present of what Easter is all about.  I think each of our lives are so busy and crazy. We have soccer practice, work, driving kids to and from everywhere, cooking, cleaning and so on. We forget what our mission is. We forget that we only exist for Him. We forget that He died for us. We forget that He rose from the grave Bc He loves us that much. We forget so much. I desire to be in a place of true and authentic love for Him. As we go into Good Friday and Easter I pray that we all take time to sit and be still to remember why we are here.  I am reminded that our mission is daily. Our mission is in our home. Our mission is to serve Him and GO into the world and Love with no expectation. thankful for His life. Thankful for the grave, Thankful that The grave could not hold him down!!   Praying for more. In need of grace and mercy.
