Looking Back Into My Future

Today is my birthday and the first thought that crossed my mind was to give my Good Good Father my appreciation for the life He has given me.

Looking Back Into My Future

Good morning Father

This is the day that you have made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

This is the day July 19 you planned

For my entrance into the earth

At 2:18 am you hit the start button

For me to begin on the journey

Of my purpose and destiny

Sometimes it hasn’t been easy

But you’ve been here for me

To get me back to your path for me

You knew there would be stubborn times

That I would be disobedient

And do my own thing

You’d let me with a watchful eye

You were there to pick me up

Dust me off and love on me

When my stubborn actions

Got me in trouble

To let me know you’ve still got me covered

You’ve been and still are a Good, Good Father

You are true to your word

You never leave me nor forsake me

You take such good care of me

You said I am bound to be blessed

You heap blessings upon me daily

You shower me with gifts and surprises

That turns me into Daddy’s giggly, giddy little girl

I thank and praise you for letting me

End one year and start another with great

Expectations of what you want me to do for you

I do and always will love you

Need you and trust you with

Every beat of my heart

I honor and love you for being my Good Father

What’s Going On

Today I went to the Post Office to purchase postage stamps. As always I was asked which stamps I wanted. I looked at the samples and was surprised to see one of my favorite entertainers from times past-Marvin Gaye.

I remember not too long before his life was taken I won tickets to see him in concert through a radio station give away. My seats were wonderful. There were seats in front of me blocking my view. I could actually see what was going on. He gave an awesome performance that evening. It was a real treat for me.

Only You – The Platters

Only you can make all this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
One and only you

The ‘Only You’ in my life is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Hope you find or know your ‘Only You’.

A to Z 2015 Blog Challenge – Green

I’m sitting at my desk in front of the window with my eyes open. I realized I wasn’t seeing what I was looking at.

Now that I am seeing, I see green everywhere. The grass, bushes, and trees. The tree and bushes in front of the window are filling up with new leaves. By the end of the week I won’t be able to see across the street. I opened the door to take it all in. Very refreshing.

I have more green grass now than I’ve had in the six years I’ve live here. My Iris’s usually don’t have blooms—just greenery. This year they are full of buds and blooms.

I have two Holly bushes that never lose their green leaves. They do produce white flowers that attract bees every year for a shot time. The bees are all over them now.

A beautiful red bird was an unexpected surprise that landed in my tree. I grabbed my camera to get a picture. He flew away but not far. He perched on my neighbor’s roof and I was able to get a photo. I got a photo of a Bumble Bee on the white flowers.

I relish God’s handiwork when he decorates the earth as the seasons change. He creates a masterpiece like no other.

The Power in Finding You

I was browsing through my documents on my computer and found this piece of encouragement. I don’t know where it came from but I decided to share it. I hope you are as enlightened as I am.

The Power in Finding You

When you cease to be “the person you were never created or intended to be, fear will no longer continue to be what it was never empowered to be. Doubt will cease to be what it was never empowered to be.

When you take that bold action that manifests your Original Self and Original Intent, “all of the emotional death trappings of the soul” will take action and depart from your life.

Be what doubt cannot be. Be what fear has no poet to be. Be what limitation is afraid to be. When you become your Truest Self, every lie will have to disappear.

We are not living in a world of impossibilities. Everything is truly possible to them that no only believe, but participate with their belief. Believing a thing, without participating with that thing, is merely an idea with no food to drink. It cannot be strengthened. It is a weak thought.

Have unlimited faith in who you were created to be.

Allow the curiosity of Divine Discovery to navigate you through the valleys of uncertainty. Allow the Attraction of Truth, Possibility, and Oneness with God, to lead you to the awakening of an individual that has resided within you all along, who at times, spoke to you through your dreams, your passions, and even the simplest, doodling on scrap sheets of paper.

No one is obligating you to be who you were never created to be. Find Yourself. And when you do fear will find its way out of your life.

Vulnerable to Victorious

Sean’s been a loner since he was a small child. He never had friends and was always made fun of. He kept to himself with the least amount of communication.

Can’t be vulnerable if I don’t reveal too much about myself.

His only problem was not vulnerability but constant attack on his character and his self-worth sabotaged. Sean looked in the mirror and hated the person he saw. There was nothing about that person he liked because he compared that person to other people.

Sean’s weight crept up daily. He gained thirty pounds in the last six months. That added to the cruel names he was called.

How can I get them to stop? Stop making fun of me. Stop calling me names. I don’t mess with anyone. I mind my business.

Polishing off a bag of chips and a chocolate bar Sean rolled over and drifted to sleep between sniffles.

God visited Sean in a dream that night.

Sean, God called, who’s making you vulnerable? Who is sabotaging you and making you feel worthless? I didn’t say those things about you. I didn’t create you to be any of those things. The enemy is using the young people to make you feel vulnerable and doubting your worth. Focus on what I’ve said about you—not them.

No longer will you succumb to the lies you’ve been told and be in agreement with them. I call you out of vulnerability, self-sabotage and worthlessness. I declare you are walking in victory. Victorious living is your portion.

Then next morning Sean remembered his dream. Deep within he realized he had more than a dream; he felt the difference within.

Sean went from vulnerable to victorious.
