Sometimes things speak to us at the perfect time—My journal cover. I’m so bad at just being present and seeing the little important things. I sure needed to see this this morning. 🙌 Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart ♥️ Psalm 37 : 4
I love and keep these verses as the best reminders that life has brought me to avenues I wish I never visited. The dark valleys and trouble waters have been tough and drained a lot out of me. But, I may wish a completely different scenario or outcome, but I am taking pride of the crossroads I have passed through. These have made a "so much better person of me" today. The "What if" I do not ask myself, The "why" is of no interest anymore and quasi irrelevant. #Unrecyclable is the past, my past. I packed it and dropped the garbage bag in the truck. It happened yesterday. Can't go back and take the good or the bad. i can only move forward, be proud of who I am today and focus on the road ahead of me. I am thankful and grateful I am still living, being available, intentional and ready every day for all God wants for me. It is His "Will" not my "Want" Isa 43:18-19 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Phil 3:13-14 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Hospice bedside watch. Saying good-bye to a woman I have known and loved since I was 15 years old. Indeed this feels like holy ground. Induced sleep brought blessed relief from pain .... and yet we feel robbed at the same time. She's ready to go. So we have one-sided conversations about mansions, and light, and joy as we wait for heaven's door to open. Come quickly Lord! I'm praying I get a glimpse of that first meeting ❤️
How hard can a heart get? We read in scripture of men like Pharaoh that hardened their heart and dealt with plague after plague but would not repent. We read of Jonah who had a clear word to obey and did the opposite, a storm came and he repented. God will get our attention but what will it take for us to listen. Repent today. God will give us a faith change where we don’t trust ourselves to change but we trust Him. He can redirect us. Immature believers walk by their feelings and live for their own survival. It’s time to mature before it’s too late. Walk by faith. Trust God to lead, guide and provide. We were not called to be gate keepers of our own lives. Let the Holy Spirit be the gate keeper and protector. The enemy will kick in our gates every time if we are our own protectors. We are not stronger than the devil in our own selves. In Jesus name we have protection and power from the Holy Spirit to live differently. .
