Does anyone besides me want to be more like Christ, but find that the weight of the world sometimes gets in the way? Do we seek the favor of man and the world more than God?
These questions for me come up a lot during the holiday season. I watch as we buy lavish gifts for our families and lose site of the meaning of Christmas.
I’m guilty of course, but I’m beginning to understand as I dig deeper into God’s word and how that word is affecting me and the choices I make.
I’ve been away from my page for far to long as God continues to draw me close. I’ve been going through a lot in the last several years and just recently a divorce.
The last few years have been difficult as I struggled to determine what was God’s will for my life. Could I make it on my own?…would I survive? The only thing that I continued to hear was God’s voice as I cried out to him in prayer for direction.
In the last twelve month as the divorce has become final, the sorrows are still their , but they begin to heal. As I trust God more, the blessings continue to come forth.
Now, I’m still a work in progress. He has lots more to do, but I feel a sense of calm in being still and listening. If you know me, you know this has been a process!
My goal is to continue to make sure that whatever the lord places on my heart, I share hear. So , as I learn to be still, I will share the message that the lord places upon my heart.
Good morning. As I sit here with my morning cup of coffee, I’m reflecting on this journey of chasing God.
The company that I work for will close it doors on January 31st , putting over 100 people out of work.
What goes through my mind is what is God up to now and will the storms ever end? In my quiet time with God he shows me the storms only make us clear and stronger in our faith to withstand the battle that is to come.
Tell everyone that the battle is not over and that your faith will be tested as he prepares you. Here I thought the journey would be easy; boy was I wrong!
Wow! Here we are again in a new year. This past year has been and the start of this one has presented some challenges, but God has shown me that he is God and lean not on our understanding , but on his.
As time goes on I will go into more detail about all of the changes and struggles that I have experienced in hopes to help others know that they are not alone and that God is with us.
Each experience showed me how God works in your life if you allow him. Building a relationship with God is paramount in how you handle life.
Learning to be yourself first and trusting God creates a person who knows themselves and will not be shaken by what life brings their way. Join me on my journey that has not only brought me to God, but has shown me the woman in myself that God has created me to be.
I’ve made mistakes and I’m not perfect, but God has shown me that no matter the circumstances learn who you are first before you get involved or married. Make sure that you are evenly yoked with that person before you make a commitment.
Join me and follow me on my journey on how I’m chasing after God.
When morning comes be thankful and give honor and glory to the lord our god. This year has been quite the challenge with more to come.
I have grown stronger in my faith and have found a new and refreshing closeness to God. I’m learning to trust him for all things and seek his wisdom in all matter before anyone else including myself.
As my faith grows stronger, I see people and the world in a new light. There has been much pain and mourning this year with more to come for this world, but this is not our home. So pray without giving God direction on what you need and want for he knows , but pray ” father what is it that you would have me do today on your name.”
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myth.
My storms have been real and many and somedays I feel overwhelmed and consumed by them. Have you ever wondered why people commit suicide?
I have. My nephew did and in my recent storms I’m beginning to understand the pressure you feel when you can’t seem to find your way out and in your mine everyone is just to busy with their own storm to hear yours. But sometimes we have to reach out to our love ones and families and just listen.
Still there is one who is always there and never forsakes you. Now you may not get everything you want, but God will provide everything you need. Just call on Jesus.
Psalm 46:1-3Godis our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Last night was a very strange but wonderful night. I was dreaming and giving praise to God from a song I heard at church earlier that day when at 4:00 am my alarm on my phone woke we up. My alarm was not set for that time , but set for 6:00 am. I woke and I to prayed as the lord instructed. What happened next was amazing. One of the promises was delivered as he said he would. Be blessed.
Wow, its been a long time since I’ve been on my page. Let me start with hello and God bless everyone who played a role in the major developments of my life. First, where have I been for the last couple of years? I’ve been on a journey that continues to have many ups and downs in the pursuit of chasing after God. I will not go into a lot of detail tonight, but look for what has been happening with me and how God has been present in my life.
The page will be changing as I learn to adjust to some of the new technology. I hope all the people who followed me will continue to follow and offer the same support and encouragement. As you can tell from the picture I’ve grown a little older , somewhat wiser, and reflecting on how this journey has strengthen my faith. As I have in the past I will leave you with scripture that touches the heart and soul of who we are as Christians who chase after God.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
I Corinthians 2, 2:10-12 KJV
