Be Careful Little Eyes What You See

Posted by:

Someone told me that I am considered “damaged goods” by the world now, because I was caught in a brutal connection and a relationship failed. That just broke my heart that we would see another person’s suffering as beyond expectation for a life of effectiveness. What if there is beauty in the ashes, just as God said?

I have been here before, I wonder if we haven’t all been here before. Life has a way of disappointing, taking a turn before ...

Even if

Posted by:

Today at Church the Pastor spoke about the troubles in the world today and how it’s okay to feel the full extent of life’s extreme difficulties that can overpower the soul with grief.

I wish we would let people be human and just love them through, instead of feeling so superior in their struggles.

He spoke about how even King David spoke to his own soul “Why, my soul are you downcast? Why, so disturbed within me? Put your hope ...

Philippians 4

Posted by:

Today’s message at Church was Rejoice in Conflict, one of the very many things I struggle with. I had coffee with a Friend yesterday and as she walked in the room there was a noticeable difference that was eye-catching to everyone in the room. She had a new radiance about her, a loveliness and she beautifully stood-out! I told her how amazing she looked and she told me God was making a difference in her life.

My mirror fell off the ...

The Armor of God

Posted by:

At any moment there can be a bottleneck ahead on the road I like to call this life! If you’re like me you might just unpack your tent and camp right there never trying to go past it! There is a problem with my line-of-attack and that is the lack thereof!

I am beginning to consider that God might just want to get my attention with this one “I have told you these things, so that in me you may ...

John 16:13

Posted by:

Do you ever wonder why it seems that you just cannot make progress sometimes? I have been struggling with so many things within lately and have been crying out to God. SO today I again cried out to God and in an audible voice I got honestly real with Him. I figured there was no point in candy coating my anguish with a bunch of ornamental beautifully dripping words about how I needed a bit of support,nope I got single-mindedly ...

Merry Christmas

Posted by:

As Christmas draws near I am very much aware that some will tenderly be empty throughout the day! I have always loved this time of year, it is my absolute favorite day to celebrate but this year I am sensitive to the cost of our human condition that can weigh down the heart that so desperately wants to embrace Joy again! I have been struggling to find purpose in my own agony in missing another person in my life and ...

Changing the way I think

Posted by:

I haven’t written on Daniel’s site for a while I have been busy. The only question that matters past that is was I reaching for His kingdom living my life for His glory. The honest answer is not really. I spent 99 percent more motivation on petty-mindedness.

I hate when I let myself get pulled into the abyss of selfishness. I find myself just sitting without direction wandering in my own attention span of zilch watching TV and seriously what ...

He is my life’s Righteousness

Posted by:

I wish bad things didn’t happen to caring and compassionate people, but they do! We live in a world ready to justify the suffering of another by totally disregarding their afflictions because that’s what you do when you choose not to notice, you’ve already rationalised their consequence and are all right with it.

Well that’s not me you say, and you might already be convincing yourself that under no circumstances would you look the other way! But I have ...

His Grace Finds Me

Posted by:

When Daniel died I felt deep, unfathomable loss and a grief that overwhelmed me but I didn’t stay there and people have asked me why. I thought I would take this day to try and pen my peace.

I don’t spend much time in tears at all, I would have to say the only day I feel a drop forming is the day he died. In that quiet moment I feel the regret for moments lost trying to overpower me but ...

Things I’ve Learned :)

Posted by:

You can’t do this on Your Own – When I was sinking in the cost of losing my son, God rained down His mercies drowning me in a new hope unseen by material eyes. We put so much into what we have here and what we think is ours, but God gave us everything! God is not some mean guy up in the sky wanting to see us suffer by ripping our lives apart. He is a ...
