A PRETTY FENCE IS JUST A DRESSED UP AND HARMFUL LIE

Invitation to the Thirsty

1“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.
3
Give ear and come to me;
listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.
4
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a ruler and commander of the peoples.
5
Surely you will summon nations you know not,
and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor.”

6
Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
7
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

8
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
13
Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever.” (Isaiah 55 NIV)

Now is the time to reconcile ourselves back to Christ more than ever. This world is becoming more and more evil. So much is at stake. This applies to believers and sinners alike. How long can we run away from the righteous things before we fall into a pit?There is nothing good that can come from the sinful desires we lust after.

Material possessions, relationships that are unhealthy and/or forbidden, lifestyles and any other god that takes precedence to the Lord that should be cast away should be ridden of. Being ostentatious, taking a fancy to idolatry and giving higher praise to things and people we place above the Lord is simply wrong and a sin. Even our time we give away can be out of line. We know what is right and we know what is wrong yet we still want to ride the fence.

God is a jealous God will have no other gods before him.

* “for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God), (Exodus 34:14 NKJV)

Must we play roulette with his grace? Where is the reverence, what happened to our integrity, our morals and values? Where did the covenant go that we made with the Lord after we received salvation?

We snippet things here and there just to have the “best of both worlds” when we are actually playing with fire. How soon will it be before we are consumed entirely? I hope it’s never.

When we know right, we should do right. Count the cost. May we live out what we declare. Let’s not conform to the ways of the world.

* “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”(Romans 12:2 NKJV)

If your heart cries for what is noble and trustworthy, righteous and upright, lean not to the thoughts and ways that lead to destruction. Do not fall into the snare ( trap ) laid down by lies, deceit, false beauty and gain. Refrain from being seduced by worldly matters and monetary gain.

Every measure of good and bad will be judged by the Almighty God.

It’s time to make a change. Who do we love more? Whom will we serve? There cannot be two masters in our lives. We will either serve the Lord or serve the deceiver.

* Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. (James 1:12-18 NKJV)

May we press forward and not look backwards. Friends and family alike may not agree with you. They may even turn their backs on you because they do not understand the goodness of the Lord and the holiness that he requires of us.

The Word tells us:
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:13-16 NKJV)

We may not turn into a pillar of salt like Lot’s wife in these modern days (Genesis 19:26 NKJV) but I encourage you to take heed to the promptings of the Holy Spirit when conviction comes upon you. Do not look back at what you think you may be missing out on when blessings are plenteous ahead of you if you just stay faithful.

Allow the Lord to balance your life in all aspects.

Think on it and walk it out.

Love Drives Me to Press On

The Greatest Gift

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13 NKJV)

Love and transparency seem to collide a lot in my life. Even through hurt and pain caused directly and indirectly, God always brings me back to a place in my heart that I cannot reject others. The natural man wants to rise up, take control and fully put up a wall of steel to protect my heart and feelings.

I have learned many times that this will never go the way I planned. I can only block and withhold but for so long. Its just a matter of protecting a wounded heart the best way that works for me.

This is not how God would like for me to handle this.

I have known since I was child that I could not hold on to anger, hurt and pain forever, that I could never hate people but that I can dislike their actions.

We all have shortcomings. There is not one man on this earth without blemish. We are a work in progress if we want to succeed. Not just in this life as human beings, but as servants of the Lord.

There is a greater purpose to just being me, being a wife, a mother, daughter, sister and friend. I have been called by the Lord to be a light in a dark world, to be an example of his love that defeats everything else.

No matter the pain, the tears, rejection, answers that have not been supplied….. I have been given an assignment that I must fulfill. I can’t run away from it no matter how hard I try even if that is something that I truly wanted to do. It’s not what I want. It’s just a hard load to carry.

I can’t do it on my own.

I will always need the Lord to carry me because I have had some weary days and nights with a heart full of sorrow and heaviness dealing with various things. It’s not just about my life but that as well of others including you, dear reader. You’d think that I could not drop another tear over the last month or so, but I have.

There’s no boasting at all. It’s hard to be transparent if pride and ego were factors. I can be transparent because it’s a part of who I am. This is how God designed me. I have questioned Him at times why do I have to love others so much when it can hurt so bad.

These were my thoughts when I was younger. Now it’s just about being at His feet humbling my heart and asking for help to never stray away, to never deny love to those who cross my path, to abide in his love and strength always with wisdom to gain because I don’t want to be selfish. I want to be obedient to every thing asked of me.

If we know each other personally and you have not heard from me, I just needed a little time to gather myself. And for those who don’t know me, God has managed to draw me back to the familiar in his own way, lovingly nudging me along that everything will work out just fine.

This journey I walk as a disciple isn’t easy. God did not promise that all my days would be filled with roses and sunshine but he would be there for me when I call out to him.

Love above all else will keep me going. In Him my trust is placed to work out every good and perfect thing that aligns with his word.

Glory be to God for mercy and grace.

Scriptures to think on:

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:12-17
NKJV)

Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. Remember the prisoners as if chained with them those who are mistreated since you yourselves are in the body also. Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:1-3, 5 NKJV)

Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:29-31 NKJV)

Prisoners of Hope: Expecting Promises Of the Lord While Waiting

Prisoner of Hope

Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you. (Zechariah 9:12 NKJV)

Believe me when I say that I know what it feels like when a cloud of rain hovers over your head seemingly to never go away. The rain keeps coming and you feel as if you might drown.

This is not so. God has not left you nor has he forsaken you.

Even as the nights grow long and it may seem as if the sun will never shine, keep holding on to God’s love and truth. Nothing surprises the Lord at all. Call out to him in your despair, through your tears heard, seen as well as unseen.

We will face some hardships in this life. Some emotional and some physical. It is by faith and hope that we must continue to trust the Lord.

Blind faith.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV)

If we trust the Lord Whom we have yet seen with our natural eye to save us from an eternity of damnation to live forever with him in heaven once we repent and receive salvation, He surely will be with us and come to aid when we cannot see the outcome of the turmoil we are enduring.

The mind is a battlefield. We must be careful of the things we allow to filter…. TRUTH or LIES. Allow righteousness to fill you and cover the wounds of words and actions that attack you with doubt.

Let’s take a little look about Abraham shall we.

Abraham Justified by Faith

What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. (Romans 4:1-4 NKJV)

The Promise Granted Through Faith

For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.

Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (as it is written, I have made you a father of many nations ) in the presence of Him whom he believedGod, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, So shall your descendants be.

And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarahs womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore it was accounted to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification. (Romans 4:13-25 NKJV)

Wow, now if this is not an encouragement next to eternal salvation, what is?!! ( though there are many examples and testimonies of the mighty works from the hand of the Lord to think on as well as share with others ) There is NOTHING that is impossible for God to step in and fix. Nothing.

I say this to you out of encouragement and my by own experience and testimony: It is better to just step back and wait on the the promises of the Lord to manifest. Always remember that manifestation may not come in the way that you want it to, so be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading. Just a simple yet profound word of encouragement through a song, scriptures that you just happen to see in the Bible or elsewhere or even through someone you least expect are signs that God hears you and that he is following up on promises he cannot go back on.

No matter how long the wait may be, holding out in the strength of the Lord and not that of your own will be so much more beneficial.

You never know just how much you can learn and grow from waiting through hardships.

“Thank you Lord for anchoring my soul even when doubt, stress, tears of the unknown and unseen could not be seen. My trust is in You and You alone. The natural man easily wants to rise up for instant gratification to feel better but when our HOPE is steadfast and immovable, trusting you for the outcome of your spoken promises and blessings….. sitting at Your feet in silence and meditating on your goodness and mercy as well as calling out to you with an uplifted voice of thanksgiving and praise just for being the head of my life is and should be good enough for me. May we all look to you O Lord even when we take matters into out own hands and repent. May we ask you to take over and remove us from ourselves because no greater peace is found while waiting than in You. ~ Amen.”

My brothers and sisters in the Lord, be encouraged while you wait. Let your Hope be a Godly hope and not that of the world. Let it be justified by your faith in Him Who is able to keep you from falling.

The Blood Transfusion

20120115-223052.jpg
Hebrews 10:5-25 NKJV
“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come— In the volume of the book it is written of Me— To do Your will, O God.’ ” Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them ” (which are offered according to the law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord : I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord and those who seek to repent and receive salvation, I pray that you will begin to live your life with a different mindset on a daily basis. You have been bought with a price. Jesus died for your sins so that you may live a life pleasing to God, to receive and inherit all that has been promised to you through Him who receives you into the Kingdom.

Salvation = taking off the old man and putting on the new man. You have received the Blood transfusion.

20120115-232555.jpg

Not Carnality But Christ
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Character of the New Man
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:1-17 NKJV)

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24 KJV)

20120115-232709.jpg

The Blood of Jesus is POWER and has the ability to make you new if you choose to receive. We’ve come into a new year and it’s time to praise God and thank him for mercy. We don’t deserve grace but it has been given. Don’t take for granted that “one day I’ll change and get right with God ” because tomorrow isn’t promised. Neither is the next breath.

Jesus is coming back. Believe it. It’s time to get your “house” in order and do what is right. Live this life not conformed to worldly standards but that of God’s. Our Father is a loving God, but a jealous One who will not have anyone or anything taking first place to Him.

Scripture references

•Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. (Exodus 34:14 NIV)

•The Lord is a jealous God and avenging; the Lord avenges and He is full of wrath. The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries and reserves wrath for His enemies. (Nahum 1:2 AMP)

May the God Who is able to sustain you be with you from this day forward. Bless every word that proceeds out of your mouth, every thought that enters your mind, for out of the mind it filters down to your heart and out of your mouth. Ask Him to renew, restore and revive that righteous person you are called to be in Christ Jesus. You can not ” get it right ” before you come to Him. In your weakness you are made strong in the Lord. He will meet you right where you are in all your brokenness and begin to reign as Lord and Savior in your life.

Turn this year into a new one. Don’t look back at the past. It’s nothing but a hinderance if it isn’t producing good fruit ( spiritual ) in your life. Birds of a feather flock together. Look to your left and right and see if the fruit bearing around you is producing for the good or bad. Harvest time will show evidence throughout the year. Choose wisely what seeds you sow.

God loves you and so do I. Praying for ya…….

Hello and Welcome!

Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow! Welcome to Wellspring at His Feet one and all. My prayers are that you will be uplifted and encouraged as we unite together at the Well for that is where we will meet Jesus awaiting his precious teachings and words of encouragement. I am thankful for this opportunity to sit along side of you and dwell in His presence soaking up all that is He shares with us. May we sit at the feet of the Greatest Love of all time, praying and encouraging one another. All that I am, all that I do is for the Kingdom. As your sister in Christ, know that you are not alone. There is nothing too big that our God cannot solve or remove. May we thirst no more of this world but consume of that which is eternal. Today marks  new beginnings of a chapter in my life, my spiritual walk that connects me even more with the Body of Christ. Are you ready?!! I am quite excited. God tells me to go and I go. No questions asked!!

 

Meeting you with open arms and a hug…..

Breaking Me of My Own Will

Heavenly Father, I pray that your will, your way and your Word be embedded within my heart to reach out to those who need and seek you. I pray that your strength, comfort, blessings and your abounding love moves gently yet swiftly over your children. Remove the spiritual blinders that we carry that blocks us from receiving all that you have for us. Break us of our own will that we may be made perfect in You. May we seek righteousness, show compassion, be merciful and show grace towards others even when we feel that that they don’t deserve it. We are not in a place to judge anyone. You are the Judge, the Ruler. My God in heaven, remove the shackles that weigh us down and slows up our process in doing your will for our lives. May we strive to be a living example to those around us in a Christlike manner. I speak with authority in Christ Jesus that any negative seeds planted be uprooted and removed. I bind up everything that Satan tries to use against us to keep us from doing your will. I pray healing and deliverance from the crown of our heads to the souls of our feet. In Jesus name, Amen.
Where do I begin from here. Well today (actually this morning) has been challenging within itself to some degree. Emotional roadblocks here and there. Detours, twist and turns from out the blue. Geez, I wasn’t sure if things were going to get better. Well, I knew they would as long as I stayed focused and didn’t allow the troubles of the world to control and dictate my day. I know I can always count on God to bring me through the smallest things, knowing that He has moved mountains in my life before as well as storms that raged and blew mightily when I didn’t think I could recover from, but He did. Okay Terra, here we go again with being shaped and molded. I didn’t realize it at the time. He is creating a new woman in me. I am being refined by The Potter. It sounds lovely but it ain’t pretty y’all! Just think about pottery and everything that needs to take place in order to make it what the creator designed it to be! Amazing. 
Whoa, let me save that subject for another time. That sounds like some good stuff. ( smiling )
Let me get back on track. God is breaking me of my own will. This must take place in order for me to change bad habits, ways of thinking and doing. I must tell you that He is right up in my face! God may show himself in suttle ways and then BAM! There are times when you know he is on your case. That was me today. Feeling a litte flustered and moody. Sometimes it can be the smallest things that can set us off. Dumb stuff at that! I can laugh about it now, but during a time of stubborn mind thinking I wanted to have MY WAY. It felt good to feel that way though I know it was wrong and I was determined to have just that. ” Oh no you won’t ” is what  I heard as I was driving down the highway. As a parent corrects a child for their own good, God was doing just that in me. He was not about to let me throw a fit over something that I just needed to take time to pray about and let go until a way was found to deal with such matter. In my mind I was thinking and kinda acting bratty saying ” Omgosh, are you serious?!! Ugh. Fine then. Good grief! ” Needless to say, I let the matter of the heart go because I know His plan has a greater purpose than letting me have my way. Yes conviction set in and I just road the rest of the way to my destination reflecting. It was for my own good that I yielded. Ahh. I relaxed and smiled from that point. Why fight. I wasn’t going to win anyway! Might as well hear, receive and learn an on-the-go lesson. A seed was planted. Now as to how I care and tend to that seed is up to me. I want to reap a good harvest, so I will choose to take care of it properly day by day. 
In this, I want you to know that there is nothing wrong with having your will broken. We don’t know what’s best for us. Thankfully God does. Breaking of our own will is truly needed to grow. If we want to see a change then just ask God to help you do something you can’t do own your own if He doesn’t do it for you. I think he gives us chances to do it the easy way in so many words but if we chose to ignore, he will likley break us down to get our attention. Just like a good parent should do, He will dicipline us for our own good. Be encouraged and know God will work it out. Whatever it may be.
Thank you Lord for showing and allowing me to see where I was wrong so I could move forward. I pray the same for everyone that they too shall receive and reap a good harvest after their will has been broken and yours has taken it’s place. In love I thank you for teaching me what’s right.

The Butterfly Effect

Good day to you!



I pray that all is well with you and that your mindset is in a place of renewing. I want to start off by saying that I am again so thankful that I have been provided with an outlet to express myself and hopefully someone will be touched. My goal is to be obedient to the Lord and follow his rules for my life. Yes, I will slip and fall at times,but the key is to repent wholeheartedly and move forward. I will not allow the things that I allowed to cause me to stumble to hold me back. I say that I caused myself to stumble, because it is a choice that I made out of weakness. For it is by the Lord that I can overcome with his help and not on my own. I will fail each and every time if I try to do anything on my own.


Eph 4:23-24 Amp version tells us ” And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [ having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude ] , and put on the new nature ( the regenerate self ) created in God’s image [ Godlike ] in true righteousness and holiness.  


A short while ago I had posted a Facebook message about a dream I had about the most beautiful butterfly I had ever laid my eyes on. I’m not sure how many people read it but inspite of that, I just had to share my happiness. I have a love for butterflies and it’s just something about them that brings me joy! I have seen various colors and types,but this one I seen was one I had never laid my eyes on but it just has this special something about it that shined so brightly within my heart. I can say that I recognized the color palette from my childhood. It’s something I really can’t describe it. I can only say that over time looking back in the last 6 months or so through trials and tribulations in my life, that I see now that God had to allow me to go through some hardships to transform me. I am clay in His hands and the closer I have  drawn myself to Him when I have felt emotionally abandoned, the more He shows me. I think this is where the butterfly effect has been coming in to play. Metamorphosis…. this is the best way to describe it. It’s not an easy process from the beginning nor is it pretty depending on how you look at it,but in the end this beautiful, amazing being spreads it’s wings and fly. 





I know I have a calling on my life and as hard headed as I can be, it’s time to stop fighting. I want what He has for me but I want the easy route. Who doesn’t? But how can you actual testify to something if you don’t go through the fire? I am assured through prayer and submitting my case before Him that I will come out on top for his glory. Nothing goes unnoticed by Him and he wants the best for his children. Transformation is taking place within me. I am being renewed and restored. My faith and hope is placed in Him. God works  on his watch. No mine, not yours. Through this, I am being strengthened and my patience is being challenged as to how I respond to people and situations. This is my passion with a purpose. I want to be everything He has called and predestined me to be. I want all the blessings. I don’t want to miss out. Through this I know that I will lose many things. Dying to myself daily plays a major part. Letting go of anything and anyone that is not edifying must go as well. May I have to courage to go forth and not look back. I am naturally a nurturing person and want to help anyone that I can but it’s a downfall, a weakness if I am not careful. Everyone doesn’t have your best interest at heart and will sneak in like a wolf in sheep’s clothing to try and destroy you. I’ve been burned quite a few times but I realize more and more that I can’t be superwoman and save the day. It’s not my job. I will do my part if that and keep going.  The best I can do is pray. I love ya, but I gotta keep going for my journey has not ended and too many pit stops can potentially hold me up. This girl has things to do! 





Be blessed and may the Lord’s hand rest upon you.
