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

I Want To Be More Than Just Me

I Want To Be More Than Just Me

I want to be a writer. I believe I would be a good one. Distractions come my way.  Ideas that are deposited in me are snuffed out. My memory fails  so I don’t remember the snippets that would make for a great story. My recorder is forgotten and the creative flow is dammed up. No matter what tries to stop me I will put words on paper until I accomplish what I set out to do.

I want to be an artist. My paintings are beautiful. Many have said so. Full of color and life that draws you in to become a part of the community. Then appears an old nemesis fear slithering in with the same old plan to steal, kill and destroy. For some strange reason I succumb to those old outdated tricks. All my creativity comes to a halt. I’m shut down and can’t deliver. I’m telling that voice to shut up and I’m arming myself with my paint brush, paint and canvas and going to war.

I want to be a musician. Music was built in me before I was born. It’s always playing in my ear. Sometimes songs I’ve heard. Other times songs that are being birthed. There are also personal songs that are between me and my Lord. When music starts dancing fills in my feet. Melodies circle me. How do I capture them and express them? I lift my voice and sing. I’ll dance with the broom while sweeping my floors. I’ll be the best pianist that ever tickled the ivory keys.

My goal is to conquer the fleeting moments of creativity and let the masterpieces flow from my being. I will express the ideas that come forth from the Throne room at the time they are to be released. I believe I can and I will.

I want to be more than just me. This is me!

Is there anything that is preventing the creativity in you from coming forth?

Harvest Protectors

Walking through the store I picked out a sign I liked to add to my fall decorations for my home. I noticed Scarecrows and wondered their significance. I heard the Lord say they keep the enemy from stealing your harvest. I immediately bought several as a prophetic act.

The top picture is of the one I have at home where the Scarecrow is protecting my harvest.

The bottom one is my display at work where I’m sharing harvest blessings with joy.

May Harvest Blessings Be Yours With Joy!

The Time Is Now

Do you know what time it is? Some of us do and some don’t. It’s time for us to get serious about our purpose and destiny. We weren’t put on this earth to take up space and party all the days of our lives. It does seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be.

Deep down inside us lies our purpose and destiny. At the right time it will be revealed to us. If we pay attention we will know. Once we realize it we should then move forward to fulfilling what is put in us.We are in time and time waits for no one.

Since that is the case I believe I’ve wasted enough time and I’m going to get busy fulfilling what I know to do.

How about you?

Regroup-It’s Time

There comes a time when various aspects of our lives need a little regrouping. These range from jobs to friends and everything in between.

Friendships need to be looked at on occasion. Some go and new ones come. If the friendship goes bad you have to regroup before moving forward.

Changes need to take place with employment. Asking for a raise or getting a new job causes an aspect of regrouping.

A marriage, new baby or divorce all encompasses changes-for the good and bad. You have to regroup from the old to the new.

Changes are an everyday occurrences in our lives. After the shock of many changes we have to regroup. It’s a part of life we can’t get around.

How do you deal with regrouping in your life?

Journey

I’m on my way somewhere-where God wants me to go.

This will be a journey from where I’m at to where I’m going.

When I look back at this successful journey I expect to see growth like I’ve never seen before in every area of my life.

I expect my relationship with God to explode like multiple firecrackers going off at the same time

My footsteps will be ordered by the Lord with understanding to learn His commands.

I will never be the same-only better in Christ.

This journey will make me fit to do God’s business and bring about an enrichment to my life-like I’ve never experienced before.

Have you ever been on a journey? Did you reach your destination?

Fear

Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real

The voice of fear has no proof you can’t do what you are trying to do. Fear is a spirit. It’s trying to set up roadblocks that look so big that just maybe you’ll give in. When the lie is magnified and you see no way past your nose, you can look again.

Look at the end of the journey and see yourself there. Break up what it takes to get there into segments. It’s like eating an apple—one bite at a time.

Evaluate the completion of each segment. Make adjustments if necessary and move on in the next segment until you’ve completed the journey.

The best weapon against fear is the Word of God. God did not give us a spirit of fear; but of power, love and a sound mind.

Everything we need to turn our dreams into reality is waiting for us to start moving forward. As we move forward down the path that is laid out for us our needs will be supplied

At the end we see is our dreams are no longer dreams but reality.

Do you have something you need to do? Is fear preventing you?
