Leaving You Is Not Easy 8-10-18

I am here on the train,

Traveling home without you,

And I am sad.

Because for the past 18 years

You have been my priority, my concern, and my responsibility

Me and your Father have strived to raise you up and to give you the best that we knew to give.

I feel like I am leaving a part of me behind,

I feel sad because I will miss you.

However Son, I am so proud of you.

I knew this train ride would never be easy.

But I know that this time would come.

I pray and believe that God will watch over you and keep you,

I know that God will never leave or forsake you,

And I will be looking for you to do great things.

I know you can.

This is all part of the process,

And as I seek to understand and honor my feelings,

My love for you is so great,

And leaving you is not easy.

Love always

Mommy

The Intent of the Heart

You know the intent of the heart,

You know the desires of the heart,

You know the meditations of the heart,

You know the purpose of the heart,

You know the passion of the heart,

You know the depth of the heart,

You know the content of the heart,

Lord, you know the heart,

Create in me a heart that is clean.

Create in me a heart that is pure

Create in me a heart that pleases You.

Fill my heart with love,

Fill my heart with faith,

Fill my heart with hope.

Fill my heart with a desire to know and do Your Will.

Please bless the intent of my heart.

He Broke my Fall

A lesson from the Fall 3/26

 

There have been times in my life when I fell,

I fell and I was bruised and battered.

There have been times when I fell and I was hurt and sore.

There have times when I fell when I received scrapes and scars.

And when I fell, He rose me up.

And when I fell I got up.

And when I fell I was able to rise and keep walking.

When I think about the physical fall it was unexpected.

When I think  about the spiritual fall it was unexpected.

When I think about the emotional fall it was unexpected.

Each time I fell and the way I fell God picked me up and He healed me.

Each time I fell I learned a lesson from the fall.

I learned and became more affirmed.

I learned and became more careful.

I learned and I became more observant.

And now I have learned not to lean on my own understanding,

And to walk with the Lord, through it all,

And trust that He will hold me up and not let me fall.

 

The Journey continues……..

 

Being Led By God

Like a ship with a sail on the sea,

The Lord is the wind that guides me.

The Lord is the wind that directs me.

The Lord is the wind that leads me.

On this journey there is a map that shows where places are,

Some places are near and some places are far.

However the Lord will direct me and keep me against all odds,

There is a peace which surpasses all understanding when you are led by God.

The Journey continues. ……..

Sounding of the Alarm

The Sounding of the Alarm has a purpose.

The Sounding of the Alarm has a mission and a task.

The Sounding of the Alarm has a goal to accomplish .

The Alarm is set to,

To alert , to awaken, to inform that it is time to rise.

It is time to wake up from sleeping.

It is time to wake up from resting

It is time to wake up from slumbering and napping.

The sound gives a message.

The sound gives a notification.

The sound gives an indication.

To go from stillness to motion.

To go from being dormant to being active.

To go from taking a time out to getting up engaged and putting time in.

The alarm is a reminder.

The alarm opens eyes.

The alarm initiates the start,

the beginning, the ending,

It’s time,

The time has come.

The moment is here.

The season has arrived.

Do you hear the sound of the alarm?

Did you set the alarm?

Did you snooze the alarm?

Did you turn off the sound because you don’t want to get up?

Are you ignoring the sound because you don’t want to get up?

Does your alarm keep ringing until you get up?

The Master is Calling.

Will you run to Him?

Or will you run from Him?

How long has your alarm been ringing?

Are you ready to respond to the Sounding of the Alarm?

The Master is Calling.

Time is priceless and precious.

Time is valuable.

Time once you lose it you can’t get it back.

The time is now.

The moment is now.

The opportunity is now.

Wake up and get started.

Wake up and begin.

Wake up and end.

Wake up and take action.

Wake up and do something.

What is your alarm set to wake you up to do?

What is your alarm set to wake you up to stop doing?

The Journey continues. ………

The Way There

When I do not know,

You show me,

The way there.

When I am not sure and uncertain,

You show me,

The way there.

When I am faced with challenges and adversity,

You show me,

The way there.

When I need guidance and direction,

You show me,

The way there.

You show me the way I must go,

You reveal to me the things I need to know.

The love You shower upon me,

nothing can compare,

You will not give me more than I can bear.

When I don’t know what to do,

You show me,

The way there.

I feel Your Divine Presence in my life and that You love me and You care.

And in times of struggle and despair,

I will trust You,

Because I know without a doubt,

You will show me,

The way there.

 

The Journey continues. ……..

 

Positioning Me

Positioning Me for what’s to come,

Preparing me for what’s already done.

Training me for the path that lies ahead,

Keeping me grounding in faith,  because I am trusting what You said.

Showing me that there is no greater force than You,

Revealing to me time and time again that You can bring me through.

Giving me all that I need,

Teaching me the manifestations of blessings when I believe.

Helping me to be what You want m e yo be,

Blessing, Keeping, Leading, Guiding   and Positioning me.

He has a plan. Our lives have a purpose.
