It is my daily prayer that God will continue to bless me with the truth of His Words, so that they may become expressions of His goodness. Today, and always May He use me as His instrument to inspire and spread His Love. It is my desire to boldly share the truth of God's Word while unashamedly expressing my heart, always with the hope that others will catch a glimpse of His.
When I think about all that I have been through, All the pain, all the heartache, and all the suffering, Nights of tear soaked pillows, All the mistakes I have made, And will make, Feeling like a failure In everything, Never quite measuring up, Defeat etched into my mind, Self worth all but diminished, Feeling abandoned, Unloved,
I am comforted by the assurance that through it all God was there.
Even now I have immense battles that I am desperately trying to conquer, Enormous struggles that no one knows about, Trying hard not to be what everyone else wants me to be, But to just be me. Longing for the wisdom And strength to make wise decisions, Reaching, but never quite grasping, what I was created to be. Wanting desperately to be freed from the toxic relationships that bind me.
Through it all, Even Still, God is there, Seeing my through.
Though my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be, I have never given up. I will never give up. Taking each day as a lesson, Watching, waiting, trusting, seeking and learning all that God is teaching me along this journey.. Holding nothing back and laying it all at His feet.. Letting go, Allowing Him to teach me, To lead me, To guide me, Filling me with His wisdom, His strength, His courage, Helping me to face each day anew. Loving me as His precious child, Renewing my mind, soul and spirit with His Truth, Instilling in me a new found confidence to rise above the challenges and the struggles, To claim victory over my life.
He has given me the life-giving keys that I need to free me from the things that keep me bound. The keys are hidden in His Word (the Bible) empowered by prayer, and completed by the work of His Holy Spirit living in me, Giving me a newfound freedom and a hope so that I may share it with others, Not only so that I may find my own way, but in the hopes that others might find theirs. He has called me out of the darkness To be a bright and shining light for and to others.
I find peace and rest in knowing that through it all He was there, Is there still, In the midst of it all. My rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower (Psalms 18:2 ).. My ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1).. He fights for me continuously,
Never once have I ever been alone. Even at times when I felt alone He was there, Comforting me with His love and presence.
He is here, Even Now, Speaking to my heart. When I silently listen, In stillness I hear, He says softly that I am worthy, I am loved, I am cherished, I am valued, I am forgiven, I am redeemed, And I am His. And He is mine.
God has promised that He will never leave or forsake His children.
Knowing the Omnipresence of God, He is everywhere and He comes to us wherever and whenever we call on Him.
“I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.” ~ Psalms 17:6 KJV
Words can’t adequately express just how eternally grateful I am for His love, mercy and grace.
Thank you, Lord, for loving me so, And for making me your child. I choose to walk the rest of my days in Your truth, Knowing that, through it all, You are there Walking beside me.
Your beloved daughter.
I wrote this several years ago and although my relationship with the Lord has deepened to a greater degree, this still holds true today.
Through it all, Even Still, God is there, Seeing my through.
She writes With humility, A grand gesture Offered in a spirit Of Gratitude For the things He has done. Oh Lord, I humble myself Before You and Exalt Your Precious Name. May my character Exhibit one Of Virtue And praise that is expressed In everything That I say, And In everything That I do. May my desire be To always Glorify You.
Just like the ocean tides That ebb and flow, So goes the hours That come and go When our hearts Reach with Graceful intention To fill the empty spaces That gathers amongst The crashing waves To bring forth beauty In the unknowns, In our wanderings, And beyond the mystery Of understanding. When hope rises up Past the harsh elements, Bringing His light Into fruition And by the Touch of His hand The tide recedes Leaving behind Beautiful seashells Of every shape upon the white glistening sands. The seashore is Built up, revived And strengthened In resemblance to Our once tattered But resilient souls. His love carries us Just as the ocean Carries the waves That ebb and flow. It is here we find In this knowledge That we can Face tomorrow When the hours That come and go Fill our hearts With contentment.
. . .
For all the brave, resilient souls who have found contentment along the journey, regardless of the unknown mysteries that may lie ahead.
I wrote this poem in honor and in memory of my sweet sister in law –

Always in my heart. ♡~ . . . Walking with Jesus, Talking with Jesus, Hand in hand Along the glistening sands.
He is my Savior; He is my friend, The one I can depend.
Take my hand precious Lord; Walk with me; Talk with me.
Guide me along eternity’s path. I surrender my all To you; I am in awe.
My blessed Savior, My Redeemer, The Rock of my Salvation.
Walk with me Jesus Hand in hand Along the glistening sands.
The shore is just within my grasp. I am finally free everlast. Abounding in love, my eternal home is at last A dwelling place to cast All my worries. Fears and concerns Now are just things of the past.
Just as the sun was rising When once I beheld a splendid dream, My heart began to beam. Such beauty I could not imagine; Heaven is just over the horizon. . . .
Which proceeds with resolve, to abide to dwell, to meditate day and night in the Lord’s statutes in the manner of Christ Jesus.
Well-watered with roots that grow deep, and in due season springs up, flourishing, giving life to all who believe in Him ― The True Vine!
Forbearing and with living intention in proper time yields a harvest.
Holding fast to the profession of faith in Jesus and in His Holy Word, hearts become transformed.
For whosoever continually drinks of His Living Waters will not dry up, nor fade away but so shall succeed in increase.
― Inspired by Psalm 1:1-3 KJV
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; And in his law does he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth his fruit in his season; His leaf also shall not wither; And whatsoever he does shall prosper.”
Prayer For Today:
Lord, please help us to remain deeply rooted in unwavering and steadfast love for you, bearing fruit in each due season, and immovable when faced with adversity and those things that may dare to test our faith. Grant us favor, all the blessings and prosperity you have for us in the future. Help us, Lord, to remain focused on You, the giver of all spiritual increase. May we remain planted by Your Rivers of Living Water. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
