    Father at this moment my arms are up like a

    little child reaching and pleading for You to pick me up. Father what steps I have taken are ones that I just don't feel I can take one more step. Father everything and everyone seem against me, and no matter which way I turn it seems that there are nets waiting to catch me and...

    Its a wonder how when someone else puts

    themselves down, their looks, their being and just their overall opinion of themselves, makes an overwhelming love and longing to be the voice that will speak life, love and acceptance to them. The voice that when times get tough for them, to speak encouragement and hope. The...

    Sitting and thinking about how many times I

    have planned things. How many times I preconceived my outcomes. When situations arose especially when negative, and how the worry, anxiety and stress played so strong in that time, to all end up working out some how, some way. Yes there were plenty of outcomes that were not my...

    Just survived a horrific tantrum from one of my

    kiddos. Hubby and I really worked as a team, kept our cool, and did a great job. I'm so proud of me and of us that I'm almost teary.

    Our time is never known.

    With the news and conversations talking about what's happening, the panic and emotional roller coaster of fear, anger, hurt, rage, and overall negative is being radiated in the hearts and minds. Father I lift each person that has experienced trauma and those that are in the...

    Before I take another step,

    I look to You. Father without You I am nothing but with You and through You I can do Any and All things. Right now I take a deep breath of You in and breathe out saying my steps ahead were preplanned by You. As all Your children's steps have been planned. Today You have set...

    Madness of many thoughts of what is to come.

    Father, I am asking that You take each burden of thought and refill me with a renewal of thoughts. Reminders that today is a worry in itself. That You have not, are not and will not abandon me. That each step I take is taken with You. You will and have walked ahead of me. So...

    Tenacious Tuesday is my theme

    for today. I will hold fast, tightly, firmly, and clinging to the one thing I know to be true, which is what is impossible for me is not for You, Father. When the storms and pressures of today try and swing me, push me, test me, try me, and beat on me, I shall tenaciously grip...

    My kids leave tomorrow to go to their father's

    house for 9 days. I don't begrudge him the time, but it's so hard to have them gone that long; I miss them so much. They are my world and when they are gone, a part of me is missing. It's going to be a long, lonely week. 😂

    Thinking how after the day came to an end

    yesterday, I looked back and saw the way Your hand twisted everything to work out. Far above what I thought it would have turned out. So I give You Thanks! As I sit to think right now, how I would love for things not to pile up and then have to run to You, I begin by saying here...

    I had my baby, he's 2 weeks

    and 3days old now. A beautiful replica of his mother, is exactly what my son is. I remember the moment i pushed him out, when I saw him and heard him crying, all I could think was this little thing is a piece of me. Half my heart, half my body, my soul, 100% my blood! We share...

    Today I'm tired, I'm in no mood to move forward.

    So today I shall need You Father to help me move forward. My heart hurts when I see those around me in situations that I cannot help. My heart hurts when people are stricken with illness that no meds can fix. My heart hurts me when people are in situations that are financially...

    Hump day they say, 1/2 way through the week

    they say, but it is only the beginning of the pile up of emotions, and self centeredness each person feels due to a holiday season beginning to unravel. Father may You bless me with eyes to see each person with the love, acceptance, forgiveness, and mercy the way You see me. May...

    I can question You for all the negative

    that has happened to me and or others, but if I look back from where I have come from to where I am, without the negative I would not have become the person I am today. With each negative experience, I have had to come to the end of myself. I had to come to the point of letting...

    where to begin and cannot see an ending. At this time, I am choosing not to take one more step without taking a deep breath in and letting a deep breath out. I am reminded of the many days You have gotten me through. I did not know how, and I was not able to see an end, but the...

    Today while I am Thankful

    for many things, I above all am, Thankful for the enlightenment You give me. As I am sitting and thinking about the show The Walking Dead, I recall the days I was like a walking dead person. Physically I showed all the signs of life but happiness, hope, a will to live, a heart...

    Since the day I stopped running from You

    and turned to You, not once have I had to explain what I did and why I did it. You never demanded me to accept You. You did not even say "I told you so". You never asked me to change who I am, but told me that what You have started in me You will finish to completion. When I had...

    Thirsty Thursday has arrived.

    I am so thirsty to feel that freedom only You can give. Father You know me from the inside out. You know my why's behind each step I have taken. You have seen, heard and witnessed each dirty, grimy, and worthless step I have taken. Funny how the least bit of negative I am...
