“Where You Are”

I have come to understand that God meets us in our circumstances ~~ right where we are.

As I was shopping the other day, I came across this ~~ and if you’re anything like me, Girlfriend, you HEAR the Voice of God in reminders such as this. Loud. And clear. There is no mistaking when God connects with you in a manner that only you would recognize ~~ a child knows the Voice of her Father.

27 The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27 – AMP

It is in these fine details of my life that reassure me that my Father in Heaven sees to the tiniest of needs of my earthly life. But it is in the constant “connectedness” that I can see His Care for me. This flow and ribbon of connectedness is seamless through prayer.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, Ephesians 1:18 NIV

Recently, I had the sweet pleasure of having coffee with my dear friend, Julie. She’s one of those Girlfriends who, even though you may not see one another for a span of time, you can pick right up where you left off. I thank God for these types of Friends ~~ these are your true Forever Friends. We’ve done life together.

Without boring you with the minutia of our conversation, I will share this: she is exactly the type of Friend I hope that I am to you.

Julie listens with intent ~~ and shows with her eyes, genuine love and care. Her warm smile and embrace are authentic ~~ and her wisdom is timely. We’ve cried and laughed together. We’ve watched our children grow up and go out into the world. We’ve prayed together and we’ve watched the Lord meet us ~~ right where we are.

God knew I needed someone to be skin on His behalf ~~ so Julie “just happened” to call me for coffee. The world would explain this as a coincidence ~~ I call it Divine Appointment.

Throughout our conversation (which I view more of as a monologue since I dominated the time), Julie listened with her heart. And this can only be done if you are both of the same Spirit and mind. Her God-given ability to “feel” with me and to still yet objectively speak to me is uniquely Julie.

Again, God met me right where I was.

Girlfriend, I cannot express the importance of having your world filled with godly presence in an effort to fully experience God’s Presents. His Blessings are not man-made ~~ His Blessings come straight from His Hand to yours..

So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures. James 1:16-18 Message

My only remorse is that it has taken me this long to grasp this ~~ ‘Father, how long suffering You have been with me!’

Make no mistake, Girlfriend, your Relationship with The Lord is imperative and a prerequisite to full awareness of His Presence and Presents ~~ without Him you cannot experience the other. I will lay my life down on that principle.

You must be born again.

Jesus: I tell you the truth, if someone does not experience water and Spirit birth, there’s no chance he will make it into God’s kingdom. Like from like. Whatever is born from flesh is flesh; whatever is born from Spirit is spirit. Don’t be shocked by My words, but I tell you the truth. Even you, an educated and respected man among your people, must be reborn by the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God . The wind blows all around us as if it has a will of its own; we feel and hear it, but we do not understand where it has come from or where it will end up. Life in the Spirit is as if it were the wind of God. John 3:5-8 VOICE

Girlfriend, if you’re wrestling with where you are, feeling as though all of this doesn’t make any sense, you have need of the Savior ~~ you have yet to meet Him. It is then and only then, that the scales will fall from your eyes (and like the Apostle Paul declared: “I can now see) and you will understand that He had been there all along.

Right. Where. You. Are.

I sincerely invite you to invite Jesus into your life ~~ and I guarantee a change in your life (if you are willing to allow it) ~~ of huge proportions. You will be utterly amazed at what God will show you, teach you, do for you.

Above all, you will begin to realize His Love for you.

Then get into a small group of Sisters ~~ these are gifts with skin ~~ and they will help you remain accountable while they love on you. This is Family.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

“Bosom Buddies”

He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise, But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.

Proverbs 13:20 – AMP

She’s the one you immediately reach out to in those life moments — you know, when you’re up and flying high, and when you’re down so low that all you see are the scattered used tissues from balling your eyes out.

Your BFF, your Ace, your #1 — you text, call, or drive on over — and she’s always there with open arms for you.

Our Scripture verse today warns us about who we choose to fill those shoes 👠.

Are we intimate with the ones whom God has led us to for growth and development?

It’s so easy to be persuaded by our present emotions. To get caught up in the moment and make decisions that would impact our lives (and ultimately the lives of those in our immediate circle of influence) by reaching out to the first person available — but caution, Girlfriend, that she be a Sister-in-Christ. Otherwise, her ‘good intentions’ may only be worldly.

As you grow in Christ, you will begin to recognize ‘Spiritual Family Members.’ As with your earthly family, you will see ‘spiritual resemblance’ with true members of God’s Family. Comfort and guidance will be based on The Word of God and not carnal (fleshly) knowledge.

Surely there are people in the world who are ‘earthly’ wise — but when bearing your heart and soul, take great care to receive wisdom and assurance from a Spiritual Family Member. She will pray with you through your situation. She will point you to Christ at every turn. She will minister to your soul as guided by the Holy Spirit.

I pray for you this day, Sister, that you have that Someone who comes alongside of you — that Bosom Buddie — Who is truly Heaven Sent!

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

“Candidate for Heart Transplant”


It’s no secret, that time of year has begun to rear its head and the fact is that the future, the new year, is about to look us straight in the eyes.  For some of us, it’s a welcomed opportunity to begin fresh and anew, embracing the adventure of new endeavors and the unknown.  For many of us, it’s plain scary ~~ knowing that deadlines loom overhead and the fragments of unfinished projects and unfulfilled goals lay at our feet (or in our inbox) and we must address them before the bells toll at midnight.  And yet there are some of us who are in a place of uncertainty of bigger proportion ~~ a place of spiritual incompleteness ~~ a place of longing to be whole.

With no one looking, right where you are, Girlfriend, what is your answer to this?

I’ll be the first to tell you that ‘coming clean,’ is not easy ~~ but transparency before God is what is necessary for us to begin the road to real fulfillment ~~ wholeness.  And I’ll even go so far as to tell you that it took me years before I fully understood this; even as a Believer in Christ.  A true and genuine heart transplant is a spiritual surgery that God performed in me and continues to perform in those who trust in Him ~~ through the workings of The Holy Spirit.  And as we continue our Journey, this non-stop transformation causes us to become authentic Followers of Christ (not just Believers).

But I warn you, Girlfriend, it is not for the faint-hearted ~~ spiritual muscle is necessary for the Journey.  So if you’re up for it, strengthen your faith while you are able.  Eat of the Word, study it, absorb it, drink it ~~ it will give you the life you need to go the distance.

In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and [the Word was God Himself].  He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God.  All things were made and came into existence through Him not even none thing was made that has come into being.  In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men.  John 1:1-4 AMP

Jesus is the Word ~~ He is the Transforming Word that takes us, makes us, and brings us back in right relationship to the Father.  By the power of the Holy Spirit, unity with Christ (Messiah) starts the Transformation process ~~ tenderizes us, Sister (and sometimes that translates into a bending and molding that we would not have chosen) ~~ prepares us for the heart transplant.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to go to the doctor (for well or sick visits) and wait for results, you’ll know the experience of your anxious heart wanting to know that all is good and well.  Sometimes the visit requires laboratory tests, X-rays, scans, etc.  However it is conducted, you’ll reckon those times of having to slip into the infamous hospital/examination gowns (those undesirable back-open-won’t-close-freeze-me-til-you-come-see-me things).  And beneath the sheath is, well, nothing ~~ you are barren and fully exposed.  

And that is precisely how God would have it ~~ just you and Him ~~ fully exposed, barren, with nothing between the two of you.  This is exactly what I speak of when it comes to being revealed before your Maker ~~ transparent.  You may think you are covered by the sheath of your garment (your accomplishments, talents, status, titles, position in. life) ~~ but God sees all and knows all.

Moreover, I will give you a new heat and put a new spirit within you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.  I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statues, and you will keep My ordinances and do them.  Ezekiel 36:26-27 AMP

It’s mind-blowing to think that the God of the universe would take such notice of us in this vast and complex galaxy of His ~~ on an individual level, that’s astounding to even begin to comprehend.  However, within the same context of personal attention, is also the overwhelming and ecstatic delight that just pours over me when I consider that God wantspersonal and intimate relationship with me!  Looking back over the messes I’ve made (and that’s using the word liberally) throughout my lifetime, I don’t know that I could look into the mirror and say that of me.

Here’s the Good News, Sister, no matter how messy your life or my life has been (or presently is), we can still be a candidate for a heart transplant and allow God to create the most unbelievable and amazing beauty from the ashes.  There is absolutely nothing that He cannot transform ~~ but He does ask us to be willing to be revealed ~~ in our nakedness, in His examination room.

If you’re in a place where even looking into a 360-degree mirror is frightening (can I get an ‘amen’ on this?), take heart, Girlfriend ~~ those folks whom you think are ‘looking’ at your imperfections and flaws, God made them, too.  He knows that all are in need of His Perfecting Touch.  

There is no mess that God cannot redeem and bless for His Purpose.

Wherever you are, Girlfriend, God is there. You may think it is a dark and ugly place right now ~~ but God sees all of that.  He knows the agony, anguish, painful feelings and thoughts that you have had to endure in that place.  

You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle.  Are they not recorded in Your book?  Psalm 56:8 AMP

Your tears ~~ my tears ~~ He has saved them, collected them, treasured them.  This is over-the-top for me.  What does this do for you?  Knowing that the God of all creation has taken the time to take notice of your ugliest of times, moments, years, experiences ~~ and collected all of the tears that have flowed from our puffy eyes ~~ and put them in a bottle and recorded them.  

This is love.

It is Love that desires to draw you near to Him ~~spiritual imperfections, flaws, wrinkles ~~ all is sin ~~ and sin is what blocks that nearness.  Is it pride, thinking that we’ve already ‘come clean’ at the time of salvation; said the Sinner’s Prayer, asked Jesus into our hearts ~~ but not given Him true reign of our lives?  Is it fear, afraid that God will require us to ‘do something’ that we would never want to do and certainly don’t want to run the risk of being viewed as ‘overboard Christian?’  Is it arrogance, having mapped out how we want our lives to be, including the lives of those in our immediate circle of influence, and the determination to ‘maintain control’ of all that ‘goal’ entails?

Girlfriend, here is where I want to reach out to you, in these remaining days of this closing year.  

In your ‘place’ of inward reflection. Wherever that ‘place’ is.  However that ‘place’ appears at this very moment.  

You. Are. In. It.

And God is there in it with you.

Are you willing to be a candidate for that much needed heart transplant, knowing full well that if you refuse, you will relive this ‘place’ or worse yet, not leave this ‘place,’ where you are at this very moment ~~ and continue to hide from the Living God Who loves you so much that He felt that you were worth dying for?

Gracious is the Lord, and [consistently] righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate.  The Lord protects the simple (childlike); I was brought low [humbled and discouraged], and He saved me.  Return to your rest, O my soul, For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.  For You have rescued my life from death, My eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling and falling.  I will walk [in submissive wonder] before the Lord In the land of the living.  Psalm 116:5-9 AMP

While the rest of the world ‘resolves’ to ‘turn a new leaf,’ or make promises (that it cannot keep) for a fruitful new year ~~ you have the opportunity and privilege to start with a new heart and allow the God of all Creation to set your feet on solid ground, to cover new ground.  Ground that you would not have ever imagined possible, Sister.

And I speak that from my own heart.

Remember earlier, I said that it took me years to understand and to come to terms with the fact that God requires transparency in a real Relationship with Him.  To simply say that you’re a Believer is not a ‘qualifier.’ Did I step on any toes?  To become a Follower ~~ now, that’s the deciding factor, Sister.  To declare Fellowship with the Holy Spirit is where the surgical process begins ~~ and the effects of the transplantation will reap its workings ~~ but not without the deep dive of the spiritual scalpel (the Sword of Truth).

If this rattles your cage a bit, then I know The Holy Spirit is speaking straight to your core.  If this makes you uneasy, then there’s unfinished business between you and God.  If you feel that God is calling you to a deeper Relationship, then by all means drop whatever you’re doing and go to that prayer closet and deep dive into conversation with your Savior.

But if you’re in a ‘place’ where you have nothing to reveal ~~ I pray most earnestly for you.  Because you’ve taken yourself off the candidacy list and shut yourself off from transplant opportunity ~~ and transformation cannot occur in your life.

We all must daily ~~ not just at the end of the year or at the end of our wits ~~ be transformed.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].  Romans 12:2 AMP

Are you willing to go there, Girlfriend?  I ask not in the tone of sorority or social community ~~ but in the Fellowship of Christ, as one who has been gifted with the heartfelt desire to bring out the best in you by imparting the love of God toward you ~~ here, in this safe place.  Come.

I invite you, Sister (and this Invitation is only for the one willing to come up behind me and then alongside of me), to take up the Call that God has placed in front of you. Be bold in your walk, stand firm in your faith, and be strengthened in the Power of The Holy Spirit.  Muscle up, Girlfriend, because the ultimate best is about to happen ~~ if you are willing and able. Cardio like you’ve never experienced before, awaits you, but only if you have spiritually prepared and trained yourself for the Challenge that will result in phenomenal proportions.  Again, this is not for the faint-hearted.  If you accept the Invitation to experience the Change and Challenge(s) of a lifetime, then come and go with me to a place(s) where only God can take you (and me).

He will blow your mind.

And will blow away all the debris from the fallout of your current mess(es).

Are you ready?  Then let go and let’s grow ~~ into the Love of Christ and let the transformation begin.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

Ever have that deep — really deep — expression of thankfulness that overcomes your entire being, so much so, that you’re left virtually speechless?

Anyone who knows me intimately, knows that I am seldom for a loss of words. (Ok, Girlfriends, I saw you throw your head back and chuckle!). So when I can’t seem to “find the words” to describe my current feelings and emotions, you know it’s special.

That inexpressible sensation of delight and joy — flooding the internal senses to overflowing — that over-the-top “I can’t believe it’s happening to or its for me” feeling. Can anyone relate?

It’s that indescribable internal somersault that I want to deliver to you this morning — on this Thanksgiving Eve.

For all the knowledge and wisdom you have all shared and bestowed upon me over the years — in the countless forms of texts, emails, cards, acts of kindness, prayers — in every moment they were poured out onto me — times of shared joys, sorrows, difficulties, mama-moments, prayer requests, illness and recovery — my heart ♥️ is filled to overflowing with inexpressible gratitude. Because you have allowed the Spirit of God to use you as His Mighty Vessel of Service.

Allow me to encourage you and uplift you to keep on keeping on in rhythm to the heartbeat of the One Who formed and designed your heart, Sister. While in Service to your Savior, you are used mightily; even in ways you are most unaware.

I have come to embrace the beauty of the fact that we were designed to remain in constant communion with God through prayer — we are designed to be just so connected to Him that there is no duality of life. And as His Temple, He dwells within and through us to touch the dying world through the unique qualities of our personality. That, my Sister, is how we can touch the ones coming up behind us; by connecting them with the Savior of their souls. Those original qualities (which we sometimes think are defective or less-than, are actually perfected by The Holy Spirit when we are being transformed into His Image) are intended for good.

So there is no need for comparisons or feelings of inadequacy — we are complete in Christ.

It is my fervent prayer, Girlfriend, that you will continue to pursue God’s Relationship with you by full immersion into His Word and fellowship with The Holy Spirit by inviting Him to breathe wisdom and knowledge and understanding through your life.

In this lifetime, I am privileged to say I have witnessed such from you. And for these things I am genuinely grateful.

Blessings upon you and all with whom celebrate this Thanksgiving!

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

“In Her Silence”

I was driving through the parking lot of one of my favorite markets when I caught a glimpse of what disturbed my soul and ached my heart.

The scene was this: a man and a woman standing outside of a local diner. The woman frantically searching through her purse while the man was yelling at her — in her face and obviously in public.

Apparently the man didn’t care that his actions were on public display, much less that the woman with him was also in clear view of passers by.

I was not privy to their conversation, nor did I know the details of what had brought them to the place of their situation. But in a fraction of a moment, what I had witnessed was enough for me to go to The Lord in Prayer for her safety, wisdom and comfort.

Sister, have you ever been in the right place at the right time, to intercede on behalf of a total stranger? Circumstances and safety may not always permit our human touch — nonetheless, we have the privilege to pray in the Spirit for the well-being of another person.

This was just one of two incidences that met up with me in less than a week.

Days ago, I had been en route to my dental office during my lunch break. Along the journey, I encountered a young woman running naked in the middle of the street — one of the most busiest streets in town during the lunch hour. Another woman had been chasing her, attempting to subdue and assist her, but the young woman always managed to break free and continued to run. At one moment, as I called 911, the young woman ran up to my window and pleaded with me to help her. I will forever remember her face. Uncertain of her mental and physical state, I remained locked inside my car to avoid becoming a secondary victim.

As the police appeared on the scene, and traffic was now gridlocked in both directions, I watched as this young woman even outran the authorities. As I drove away from that chaotic scene, again, I went immediately into prayer for this needy woman. She desperately needed God.

In the silence of their days, these precious women may have only been familiar with their pain and anguish — which none of us have ever known. And for the duration of time which may have felt like an eternity — they’ve suffered in silence.

My heart aches for such a one — and I’m certain there are many, many more out there — some of whom are reading this — some of whom are in our midst.

But God … oh, how these two precious words just delight my soul …

Knows your pain, Girlfriend. And as our Scripture verse above reminds us: He saves our tears in a bottle. That is the most amazing and loving thing — God is genuinely concerned about our comings and goings. He knows our wanderings.

I suppose that is why I am deeply committed to the ones entrusted to my care — they say that is the Gift of Shepherding. I get it.

The ones coming up behind me.

I want to reach out to you, Girlfriend, and reassure you that if you are in such a situation — of despair or feeling hopeless — don’t suffer in silence. In your local church, I encourage you to seek out the confidential assistance of a pastor, Women’s Group, Christian counseling services or (if it’s available to you) Stephen’s Ministries.

It is the community of believers that will embrace you and love you through your dilemma.

And this is one of the reasons we love one another just as Jesus loved us — to readily support and encourage one another in our times of need.

Let me encourage you, Girlfriend, to reach deep inside of you — to that place where only God has seen your pain — and to bring forth that same comfort that The Holy Spirit poured out on you in your moment — and allow God to lead you to minister to another woman in need.

You may not always be capable of wrapping your arms around her — you may not even have the privilege to speak to her directly — but you can pray for her. The amazing power of prayer — even from a physical distance — is our opportunity to minister.

Who’s in?

Do we need a “reminder” of the loneliness that besieged our own souls when we’ve traveled down that long and darkened “hallway” of unknown certainty? I’ve been there, Sister, chained by my own thoughts — erroneously thinking that all was lost.

Feeling so alone.

Choosing to remain silent — for fear of rejection and judgement.

The enemy of our souls wants us to be isolated — it is in this cave of demise that ugly lies engulf our minds and twist the truth about God’s unfailing Love.

I invite you to join me in praying intently for the ones whom God places before you — in your “mind’s eye,” on your heart, in your thoughts — in front of your face and under your nose. The Lord has ordained you to minister to her in the manner He has prepared you.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

“In Due Season”

And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season; Its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].

Psalm 1:3 AMP

I’m not ashamed to say I’m a ‘do-er.’ Been this way since the beginning of my time. But it’s what’s fueling that ‘do’ that can be a major roadblock to my spiritual growth.

As a child and as a result of wanting to desperately please others, I perfected my ‘do-ing’ ~~ until it was exhausting. The inner drive to compete (not so much with people, but with their accomplishments) was insatiable. Can anyone relate?

The pursuit to perfection consumed me ~~ everything I attempted had to be just so and nothing less. As an adult, I reasoned that perfection was no worldly good unless it was timely ~~ my time.

This sort of thinking was so wrong in so many ways ~~ but my stinking thinking was justified; so I thought.

Until I came to terms with what God wanted from me wasn’t even my accomplishments, much less the so-called perfection of them.

God wanted (and still wants) only me.

Stripped of my pride, this was the biggest and hardest pill to swallow. So how did I ‘swallow’ this huge pill? Sloooowly and with daily doses of living water.

Surrendering ~~ that’s the yielding part that’s difficult to wrap our minds around. But look at this, Girlfriend ~~ yielding also means to produce. Is it no wonder that God Himself would say this in the Psalms as He did?

As I strolled through our garden, stopping in front of this tangerine tree, I was impressed with the abundance of fruit draped all around her. But most of all, I was inspired by God and His workings in me.

The fruit comes in it’s due season ~~ when it is appointed to bear the fruit she was designed to produce. And when she does, it’s a magnificent sight! But did you know, this tree doesn’t have a bumper crop harvest every year? After the harvesting has been completed, she is pruned back (ouch!) so that she can bear fruit again. But as I said, it won’t occur the same exact time next year ~~ it will happen the following year. And that’s after all the watering and manure that has to be provided; and let’s not forget the obvious: heat of the sun.

Are you still with me, Girlfriend?

Pruning back is when the Lord removes the unnecessary branches ~~ the activities that prevent the growth. They may not necessarily be ‘bad’ in nature ~~ simply not needed. The watering is the daily dose of God’s Word and being in the company of other supportive Believers. The manure (holding nose) are those unpleasant occurrences that we would choose to do without, but God ordains for our growth. And the heat of the sun is the opportunity for us to endure and develop our patience as we wait.

For the right Season. His Season.

Our ‘do’ (due) time ~~ is when God has cultivated us and then anoints us with the ability to produce (whatever He deems for us).

I pray that whatever Season you are in, my Sister, that you will continue to look up and call upon the God Who lovingly designed you for His magnificent Purpose. We are all joining in with you in prayer ~~ for your time will come in due season.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~

“Icing On The Cake”

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

1 Peter 1:7 NLT

I had just shared some prayer time with a sister~in~Christ … we chatted about being excited over the the Bible Study we were about to encounter this season. A study in Prayer … was on my way home driving and praying with thanksgiving to the Lord about my expectant hope … when I made that left~hand turn and … tumbling went my purse across the front passenger seat.

Not giving it much thought beyond the contents I would now have to recover in the dim garage lighting, I simply continued to drive home.

Arriving into the garage I found more than just a cluttered mess ~~ the small bundt cake that was in my purse had somehow popped out and released a smeared mess all over the handles of my leather purse.

I had no sooner said, “thank you, Lord, for the privilege to serve you through others …” then the challenge was put before me to put feet to my faith.

It wasn’t just the obvious mess that was apparent, but Sister, it was the impression that left me: trials on this side of Paradise require a response from me and how I choose to respond will speak to the transformation that Christ has had upon me.

It’s no secret that we will walk through this life being inundated with trials and persecutions of varying degrees. And if you’ve been a Christ-Follower for any period of time beyond 5 minutes you will know this to be quite true. Setting aside any formal opportunity to give our ‘testimony,’ our life is our Testimony.

This simple incident of the tumbling bundtlet and the gooey mess reminded me of how easy these challenges can roll through our lives, but the response that flows from us is what gives life to our faith.

11 It is not what goes into the mouth of a man that defiles and dishonors him, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles and dishonors him.”

Matthew 15:11 AMP

In essence, Girlfriend, our behavior is the icing on the cake.

I could have easily made a ‘huge messy stink’ over the unexpected incident, by ranting over the whole ordeal. But really, what would that have given me other than more heartache and deeper resentment.

As I mopped up the mess, I pondered over what had just happened and actually thanked The Lord that it wasn’t anything truly serious enough to lose myself by drowning in a sea of woe. I was grateful for the blessed privilege to see that He was reminding me of the spiritual battles that lay ahead of me this season as I stepped into this leg of the Journey.

I allowed God to show me the icing on the cake isn’t always what I believe it should or will be, or even that it will look the way I think it will appear.

Thank You, Lord, for the eyesight to see the hidden Blessings in my life.”

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend,
