He’s Making a Masterpiece in Me

Posted by:

Some days the hurt is deeper than the darkness and even the light decides to hide beneath the washbasin of refreshing. When you can’t find the cleansing release of the new day you are eager to take part in and you’re pretending you’re okay take heart, God listens even in the shadows of our organised controlling delusions that we are strong.

It’s so easy to look at our health circumstances, broken relationships, financial difficulties or unthinkable losses. But I know ...

Philippians 3

Posted by:

Some days you wonder if the Sun is going to obliterate the blackness into a million shattered pieces of bright again and in those moments of discouragement if you’re like me, you eat cake!

I have been facing some very personal struggles and the battle of many losses are raging in my soul. Yesterday was Saturday and as I was bawling in my car I told God I was feeling lost and scared that I couldn’t face more loss on my ...

Make Jesus Alive in Me Again

Posted by:

It is always a mystery to me when sometimes God gives you the miracle and other times He allows you to ache from the effects of your own choices or the effects of a fallen world. I know and believe without hesitation the God is able to do more than I can possibly ask then here’s the question that shouts defeat at me, why doesn’t He? I mean why does God allow me to suffer?
I hear people say all ...

His Purpose

Posted by:

What is death but the opposite of life here? The people that we miss in death are absolutely the fortunate ones, they don’t miss us. I listened to the song by Glen Campbell “I’m not going to miss you” a song he wrote because he has Alzheimer’s and it hit me, death only hurts the people left behind the people trying to find a reason why?

As we try and go forward without their attendance in our lives, their attendance ...

Until we meet again

Posted by:

Right now it’s so easy to see this life through broken eyes, lost moments and powerful regrets but even that perspective is a choice. My Friend left us today and started on a new journey, a journey into forever!

He wasn’t a perfect man but he was an absolute friend. He wasn’t one to express his love in words but was quick to lay down a good deed your way. His greatest wealth was the people he shared his life ...

Peace

Posted by:

It was decorating day at the cemetery yesterday. Always a flood of emotions laying flowers at a grave site where you know the body is but the soul of the person is at peace in God’s time. I visited a few sites when I was there. Each place brought me to a chapter of great joy when that person was here with me and a memory that I had tucked deep within my heart. Yet even though God gifts each ...

Happy Mother’s Day

Posted by:

This will make the 3rd Mother’s Day for me without my beautiful boy. It only serves to remind me how blessed I am to be a Mom. Even though I will always miss my child I remember how wonderful it is to be his Mom.  My child who is now one of Heaven’s greatest treasures and yet will always hold an earthly remembrance because he made such a wonderful difference in so many lives.

Daniel wasn’t mine to keep but I’m ...

Jesus the Hope in a broken world

Posted by:

It always disheartens me when others think that if your life anchored in Jesus you will not have moments of indescribable anguish. How silly, there are things that God sets before us that are impossible to endure without His daily promises. I miss my son daily; some days are easier to receive then others. Just because I am secure in my faith in God doesn’t mean grief won’t visit me again and again.  In this world Jesus told us we would have ...

He is my joy

Posted by:

 

I am whispered to and chosen by a Wonderful Father who knows me perfectly! So it always brings me to absolute joy when He shows me again and again “He is always with me.” Last night on the way home I was brought to tears when I thought about Christmas without my son. No words can describe that hollow………….no words!

As so many times before through a scripture verse He brings me through and my heart holds on to the purpose ...
