Oh How He loves me …& Tune In Thursday #11

Tweet “Ever so softly she whispered … “They love me, they love me not.  They love me …. They love me not….” “ Tuesday it was my turn to write for an 8 week collaborative series on Perseverance with 3 of my friends. As I wrote the piece on rejection, I felt more needed to be said.  I mean, when does a writer not have more to say? Hahaha … I felt prompted  to share tools that have helped me overcome rejection in my life, so that maybe others could overcome it too. If you missed my post on The Sting of Rejection you can read it HERE:     Overcoming the Sting of Rejection – Part 2   Rejection is a lie and trap from the enemy to keep us all from walking fully in our kingdom destiny.   #Rejection is no respecter of persons, it affects us all, just in different ways and to different extremes.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This It wasn’t until my mid 20’s when I realized that I was looking through lenses colored with a spirit of rejection.  It was then I began dealing with rejection and its affects in my own life. In Tuesday’s post, I compared rejection to dandelion weeds.  I said:    “The roots and seeds of encounters with rejection are very much like dandelions.  Dandelions have roots that twist and turn going very deep into the ground.  When you pluck them, and try to root them out, it seems over time they spring back up.”   #Rejection places seeds that grow roots that entangle areas of our life and heart.Powered By the...

All I am is Yours & Tune In Thursday #10

Tweet Has someone ever said to you, “Don’t just stand there do something.”?   Or maybe you have said it to someone?  Your kids maybe?   I can without a doubt answer YES to all those questions.   I heard it as a kid, and I know I have said it to my husband and kids as well.  I have also heard it in ministry and service settings.   Those very words reverberate in my soul.  The way they were spoken to me, and maybe to you as well, indicate that it is wrong to be idle.  To gain approval or not call into question our actions, we must always be doing something.   I don’t know about you, but I always feel like I must be doing something.  I often feel guilty if I take time to sit, and I am not working on the computer, or reading my Bible or a spiritual based book. I tend to push myself and work all times of the day and night.   My value doesn’t come in what I do, but in who I am in Christ.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This   If I do take time for myself to meet a friend, go to the movie, or read a book that is just for fun, then I feel as if I must make up the time I “wasted” in doing something for me.   Confession: It is hard for me to sit and just be.  It is hard for me to not just get out my list and start checking off the items 1, 2, 3… and...
Who Defines You? & Tune In Thursday #8

Who Defines You? & Tune In Thursday #8

Tweet I have a love hate relationship with social media! Can I get an amen? But seriously, when it comes to social media – I love it and I hate it. Can you relate? I know I don’t even have to mention the reasons why I hate it, but let me tell you about why I love it. I love it, is because I can connect with people from places I have met during ministry times from all around the world. I can also stay connected with family and friends who don’t live near me. I especially love the Facebook memories.  I love it because, it reminds me of events and memories that I may have forgotten. Memories like attending my kids high school events, fun spontaneous adventures, or past ministry locations and people who made an impact on me.  Even memories of quotable quotes or encouragement thoughts I captured from others.  Like this gold nugget: “God is the ONLY one who defines who I am – not my friends, my family, ministry, activities, etc. …”   #God is the ONLY one who defines who I am.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This This power packed nugget came up as a memory I posted on Facebook several years ago.  I wrote it after a conversation with one of my ministry board members.  At the time, I was struggling to write the message God had put on my heart.  Not because I didn’t want to write it, but because I was afraid.  I was afraid the book wouldn’t be any good and I was afraid of what people might think about...

Hidden Treasure

Hidden Treasure

Tweet this post may contain affiliate links I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name (Isaiah 45:3). They all stood and stared in awe of the amazing sight that lay before them.  Had they known what they were about to stumble upon, they would have been more prepared. Yet, how can you prepare yourself for something like this? The team of explorers stood at the entrance to a huge cavern filled with a sea of treasure.  There was so much more here than the natural eye could even comprehend.  How long had this place held such a treasure? A kings ransom to be sure, but why was it hidden here?  It seemed like such a waste, not just the monetary wealth that had been hidden away, but the historical as well.  No one could enjoy it, and someone must have forgotten about it, because no one knew of its existence.  The team hadn’t really been exploring anything when they stumbled upon the biggest find ever.  What lay before them was something of the movies. People just don’t find treasure like this anymore, it has all be discovered or previously uncovered, right?  I mean, who were they to find such riches as these? The King has hidden treasures stored for each of us.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This As I think over this scene, I am reminded of Esther before she was chosen Queen.  There is a scene from the movie “One Night with the King” that...
Arise Warrior Princess

Arise Warrior Princess

Tweet As a youngster, I was adventurous, headstrong, and I had no fear, or so it seemed.  I would much rather be climbing trees, playing in the woods, and playing softball than playing with dolls, having tea parties, and wearing “girly” things. If I had the choice between Barbie dolls or hot wheel cars, I preferred the cars, you could drag them through the mud and send them soaring over rock piles.  They seem to rinse off and get cleaner than dolls.  Don’t get me wrong, my sister and I had Barbie’s … Barbie cars, motor-home, airplane and even a Barbie house. Yet, if my dad was working on the cars, I was there working with him.  If he was riding three-wheelers (I know I am totally dating myself), I was there too.  Growing up I was considered a tomboy, and my sister was the princess.  It didn’t really matter much to me. I just knew, I would rather climb the tree and pretend to save the world, than dress up a doll and play house. My little girl heroes were not Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella or Snow White.  I am a romantic at heart, and so of course I loved the tales and stories of these princesses.  I too dreamed and longed for my white knight, my prince, to one day come ad sweep me off my feet so I too could live in a castle.  Oh the dreams of a little girl. Truth be told, my heroes were Wonder Women and Xena Warrior Princess. I loved to watch these shows. (oh shoot, there I go again dating myself). ...
