and with him is full redemption….(Psalm 130:7)

For quite some time I used to really get stuck on the hurt I had experienced from people. I’d let it spin around endlessly in my heart and mind. I felt as though it just wasn’t fair and it wouldn’t really be OK until I saw something similar happen in their lives. Some sort of downfall or consequences for their actions.

Isn’t that terrible?

I have now learned the beauty of beholding the one who is my redemption. I really believe that’s what we have to do. We can’t wait for God to do what we believe is the redemption that we need. We simply must see Him as our ever present hope, joy and redemption in each moment for each day. Once I started living in my redemption instead of waiting for it, something changed. I started to have compassion for those…

Stand Tall With God

This really spoke to my heart as I sure it will yours too!!

He makes my feet like the feet of a dear; he causes me to stand on heights….(2 Samuel 22:34)

Friend, God wants you to get above whatever the enemy is trying to pull you into. That’s what I’m realizing for my life is that the distractions, fear, discouragement, etc. is all a tool from the enemy trying to get me into a pit of defeat. Yet, the Lord grants me victory and all I have to do is stand on that victory that is mine. Like a deer stands on the heights.

So friend, whatever you’re facing today, don’t let it pull you down. Stand on top of it with the strength and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Know that as you do, you can see each day with fresh eyes as you look out on the landscape of your life and see what God has for you. That’s…

Our ways are not God’s ways

ok so I would like to try to write a new chapter to my blog, a new story, a new thought. It seems like I think of things I want to say, but never write them down, so now I am writing it down. If I could just help people learn from the mistakes I’ve made….It would surely be a blessing….I think of so many times when I had to be in control….it got me no where.
After struggling to get back up after the fall, I finally found out that I had to give up the reigns. Trusting God with my life was something I always wanted. But before I learned that, I was sinking deep…..but I finally found out that what Pastor Chuck Swindoll had said made perfect sense. He was so right about what he said…..sin can take you farther than you want to go and keep you longer than you want to stay…and cost you more than you want to pay! Boy did I learn this lesson…..and it came to me through a song….like waking up from the longest dream that seemed to real but when God’s love broke through…….I felt the peace I had never felt before. God carried me through the wilderness and brought me to a place He wanted me to be so when I finally woke up….I knew what had happened. So many times I just wanted to crawl in a cave and stay….where no one would find me….I just knew there was something better. When God’s love broke through….it was as if I had the longest dream and even though it seemed real….it didn’t feel like it. I just praise God for not ever giving up on me. So many times I wanted to give up on myself because I had sinned so much and I deserved the worse. But God….but God had something better in mind for me. God tried so many times to show me but like a fool, I just didn’t see it.
