Glimpses

This is just a little part of the journey for me, You have promised to take me past this, to a place of pure joy and everlasting peace, a place where my body will no longer try to hold me back, a place where my mind will not be constantly assaulted with thoughts of failure and condemnation, I get glimpses of what You have for me as I dwell in Your presence and hide myself in You, I see glimpses of heavenly glory, Jesus by Your side and me seated at Your feet absorbing every word spoken to me, and in the blink of an eye I am on feet dancing before You, my King, my Lord, my Abba, Your love is fueling me, giving me the strength to keep dancing……..

Happy New Year!

happy-new-year-2013-vector-thumb26864205Well Father here we are, another new year is upon us and I’m am so excited for it. Last year was not what I ever expected it to be but I can see how You were present and even in some of my darkest moments I know it was You and Your continuous flow of love for me that brought me to this new year. I saw You in my doctors, you provided the very best for me, in my job and in my employer and co worker, in friends who drove me everywhere I needed to go and especially in my daughter and all that she did & does for me and last but certainly not least my Pastor who fed me You without stopping, never giving up but always hearing You and imparting You to me when I couldn’t hear You on my own. I expect new and amazing moments with You in 2013, even more Jesus moments than ever before, I hear Your promise of great grace in this new year and I am a humble recipient of this promise so no matter what things look like on my outside, I am just like Jesus on the inside!!

Happy New Year everyone!!

I am learning….

I have RSD & I am learning through this thing that is happening in my body, I am learning to lean not on my own understanding, because my understanding doesn’t have a clue! I am learning that when I am in pain I get scared.
As I wrote that word, the word scared, the emotions that it stirred up in me are crazy, why is it that as a Christian the admission of being scared makes me feel less than the believer I thought I was and that admitting it brings about even more fear?? But then just as quickly as those thoughts came over me, the Holy Spirit swoops in and fills me, replacing what threaten to consume me just seconds ago with the assurance that I need not fear He is forever with me and reminding me that RSD has already been eradicated by the Healer who took it in His own body, held it His flesh and took it to the Cross where it died when His physical body died. This is understood as reality by my spirit being, it is my choice to believe and trust in this truth until the day that it manifests as such in my body. Do I trust and believe in all that Jesus accomplished for me, for us, on the Cross? YES, I do!! And in believing this fear no longer has any hold on me. I am learning…

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
1 Peter 2:24 (NLT)
