Thy Word

Thy Word
Trust is not a stand alone word,

But is accompanied by Faith;

Character and wisdom are too,

And often there is grace….
Sometimes it is difficult to accept

Words that are meant to help,

When all my emotions right now 

Want to hide me on a shelf.
But emotions can’t be trusted,

Trust is my best friend;

Along with faith and character…

Grace’ll help me win again.

Allways

Oh, Pinions

Oh, Pinions!
I clipped my wings so I could fly;

Soar higher than before. 

My focus has moved to my wing’s length-

I’m stuck here on the floor.
My gaze weighs so heavy 

That it pulls unwanted thoughts in…

Moving me deeper in this cage;

My head’s beginning to swim!
I was meant to fly ; even past 

Intimidating Mountains that block the Sun.

So watch me now as I take the plunge;

Allowing my feathers to be undone-
For it’s not by my strength the wind carries me great distances through the sky;

Jesus remind me that You’re holding me

As You teach me how to fly.

Heart Stones To My Pulse

Heart Stones To My Pulse
Still my heart; bring me close;

Turn the volume down-

Chaos isn’t my type of music

To dance around the town.
Let me hear your voice singing

Whispering in my ear;

That you want to be next to me,

So I don’t have to fear.
My hand longs to be held …

And trace the outline of Your Face;

To feel the One Who’s rescued me-

Saved because of Grace.
With You I want to stop the clock

Together, breathe in and out

Too many things pull us away…

Try to drown us in our doubt.
Promise me before anything unforeseen happens… 

With everything you choose to get-

That you will never allow the enemy strength ….to fill you with regret.

Becoming A Butterfly 

A caterpillar, knits its cocoon and stays in one place for a period of time in during the temperatures around it as well as the transformation within. We don’t know what type of pain the Catapillar goes through. We just see the beauty of it emerging from its cocoon.
Just like The Catapillar, when I go through trials, I am kept in one place. It is painful, but I am changing I’m building my strength through this trial. My features are changing as well- inside and out!
I pray that when you feel like you’re not going anywhere when you’re hurting and you just want out,  please be patient as God is painting you-building your strength as you wait in your cocoon💕
   
   

Saturday Stew 11

Dear Jesus, I thank You for what you have given up for us, that we might have life everlasting, ever so complete!! Forgive us for forsaking You ❤ I pray that our eyes and hearts are open to what You are speaking to us and teach us each day ❤

 

Yuck!! Yellow gunk, hardened. Black crumbs, speckling the grey Teflon coating of my waffle iron! I had poured vegetable oil over the griddle to let it soak, thinking that would help remove the grossness, to no avail. Scrubbing did little to remove any of the baked on grease and remaining food.

 

Yes, I now know how to make waffles in there, but to clean a waffle iron…this was…is an embarrassing topic. Yet do you know, I found out something. The Holy Spirit had me plug the waffle iron in and heat it up as if I was going to make some waffles. I waited a few minutes until it was good and hot, then all I did was wipe it down. Simple. All that time before spent scrubbing and being stressed, not getting my waffles due to a dirty iron…what wasted time.

 

I find when I go through the heat of life that the Holy Spirit carries me through, peeling me out of those difficult situations, as I am trusting Him.  It is those times when I am coldhearted, when my focus is off, when there is a lesson I have to learn that I have to wait a little bit longer. Whatever the reason, God has a plan, for how He is “cleaning” things up in my life. Whether it be on this earth, or whether I get to celebrate with my Dad and Grandparents and all my loved ones in heaven, I know I will be filled with joy everlasting as I am practicing my faith praising my King ❤

 

Luke 10:41“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

 

If only going through the difficult times were so easy ❤

Full Bloom

The sky is overcast with off and on showers. The temperature says it’s 40 degrees but I think it’s more closer to 35 or colder with the wind. It’s supposed to be spring out. Doesn’t that mean the air is supposed to feel more like 60’s and above with the sun shining all the time?

But you know what I saw when I took my dogs out? Buds on my lilac bush! They didn’t care about the cold temps, the wind, the gloom. These tiny buds were doing exactly what they were supposed to be doing along with so many others around the rest of the bush. Which reminds me that I need to keep my focus on what I need to be doing; blooming despite my surroundings….knowing that my petals and aroma will bring beauty, joy and pleasure to someone, somewhere……and especially our Creator ❤
