In Awe of Who God Is

This morning I was awaken by the terrible stench that has overtaken my house as a result of my forgetfulness…..at 11:30 pm last night we were awakened by our smoke alarm. Having it go off in the past as a result of a dying battery, we didn’t move to quickly to respond, until my 6 year old came running into our room.  My husband got out of bed to see what was going on and all I could hear was “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh”....

Do I trust Him?

My Lord.  I have forsaken you. 

To trust is to be committed into the care of another, to have or place reliance on; depend, hope, to have confidence in. I recently had some swollen lymph nodes on my neck, they became this way about two months ago as I’ve been fighting a severe sinus infection since last November.  After a round of antibiotics, the enlarged lymph nodes didn’t change in size.  My mind began to race. This just so happened to play out shortly after lent started this year and what I had given up for the 40 days was to not go on the internet regarding any health questions or concerns because this was a real temptation for me given my health issues.  I obstained from doing so until one day, about three weeks in, I chose to let my mind feel numb.

Supplements

After 17 years of dealing with illness, I’ve always had my hands in some sort of supplement regiment.  When choosing my supplements, I wanted to focus on creating the healthiest balance in my gut, as that is where 80% of disease starts, as well as do as much as I can to keep my immune system up, fighting and functioning at its best.  Last week I visited my naturopathic endocrinologist whom I hadn’t seen in a few years and she asked what I was taking.  When I told her what I had come up with she was extremely pleased and had nothing to add. When choosing the supplements, I wanted to focus on creating the healthiest balance in my gut, as that is where 80% of disease starts, as well as do as much as I can to keep my immune system up, fighting and functioning at its best.  She is the third doctor to concur with my regiment so I thought I’d share…

What does fear look like?

For me, fear is a sin I am familiar with. I have to choose to deny myself the “pleasure” of camping in it.  If I don’t, it consumes me and swallows me whole at times.

What is it?  According to the dictionary, fear is to be afraid or feel anxious or apprehensive about a possible or probable situation or event.  Basically living in a mental state of “what if”.  This is what my mental state had become.

Transparent

Hi to everyone…it’s been a while.  I’ve been in a different season over the past 6 months or so and decided to take some time away from writing as I let the Lord sift me.  For the past month or so, the Lord has continued to put writing on my heart but with one condition…only if I’m transparent.  Lives can’t be changed, including my own, if we can’t be transparent with the Lord and with those around us.  I’m not saying everyone needs to know every detail of your life but there’s something about being the same person, being authentic, regardless of who you’re around (Jesus, family, friends, readers…).

Kreativ Blogger Award

I got this blogger award recently. Whoo Hoo!! Maybe this could be a little motivation for me to stay more on top of my postings... nice thought but probably not... not with two small children, one being under the age of 2 months and the other, well he talks, he loves to talk. So when I ask for a few minutes of quiet time a day where my ears hear silence, that's just not enough time to get a post up. Anyway, I guess the way this award thing works is you have to follow a list of rules so here goes...

I asked to hear His voice

It’s not uncommon for me to hear God speak to me.  Sometimes it’s been a still small voice, sometimes loud and audible, sometimes through others.  But for months now, I’ve felt more silence from the Lord yet I have some major circumstances whirling around me right now that I desperately would like to hear from Him on. I sat in church tonight and after an awesome time of worship I began to pray that the Lord would speak, that I would hear His voice, that if there was something I had been disobedient to in the past that is hindering me from hearing Him, show me so I can repent and obey. And the Lord began to speak. At first I had my typical thought, “Lord, is that you or me?”  but he said,
