Life is good. Better than it’s ever been and I can tell that it’s only the beginning. I’m growing and taking risks and doing things that I have never done.
I understand clearly that one cannot give what they do not have. I’m loving and embracing people who are for me and am grateful to be able to give more of me. By no means am I boasting (pssh! There’s nothing to boast about but Jesus, please!). I’m simply informing you that…
I am a miracle.
I have never been able to love and give as much as I am. I’m beginning to live out my dreams. That’s it!
I am beginning to live out my dreams.
Wow. God is amazing. Really and truly amazing. *tears*
I’ll be going “back home” to visit family soon. Yay!! I’m superrr excited (as are they)! Gosh, you have no idea how much I love and miss them! I’m excited to see everyone that I love and loves me back – and even maybe a few who don’t *shrugs shoulders*. I’m always most excited, I think, to see my little brother who outta nowhere has become my taller twin over the years. He’s a nice glass of water – like his sister 😉 Gosh, I remember praying and asking God for a brother. This very day I’m still just as grateful, if not more, that the Lord heard me and chose to give me my heart’s desires. Keep him Lord, and continue to help me be the sister he needs.
Despite all of the love and excitement, I can’t help but think about how I know that I’m not returning “home” as the same person and how really, as excited as I am to go, a part of me just wants to stay here and not leave this new life. I’m in the right field, ya know? I don’t want to risk stopping by a different field. I don’t want anything or anyone to even slightly get in the way of my journey. This is just what I’ve been thinking though. What I know is, I’m supposed to go. I will enjoy my time, and it, like everything else, will be ministry. All I really wanna do is plant a few more seeds, sprinkle a little more water, love and live.
I’m always singing (inside and out) and up until my move to the east coast I sang these 2 songs repeatedly:
“Beautiful” – India.Arie…
“Jesus Be A Fence” – Fred Hammond…
There’s really no reason for me to be afraid. I believe in the word of God. It is the truth, and all that it says, even when it makes no sense to my human mind, is beautifully correct and applicable.
The Lord has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, love and of a sound mind. – 2 Tim. 1:7
So I’m not gonna be afraid of accidentally moving backwards because I have already begun and am determined to press on moving forward and I can’t do both at the same time.
I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:38-39
Where He leads, I’ll follow. And that, ladies and gentlemen is exactly why I’m freezing my buns off on the east coast lol…
Verb: Undergo or cause to undergo a process or period of transition.
Noun: The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.
Synonyms: passage – change – crossingThis transition has been true to itself to say the least and I believe it’s deeper than I thought. Like an elevator. I know I’m not in the basement, but I haven’t really hit the first floor. I may be in the lobby lol. Like I said, it’s only the beginning 🙂
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit of it. – Proverbs 18:21
…so watch your mouth and try to throw good fruit in the atmosphere, please. It’s a shame to see people destroy their lives and others around them simply because they won’t shut up or think before they speak.
I’m a strong believer in the power of words.
I’ve never been a “grey area” type of person, so to me that statement means, I believe in the power of all words said for any reason and I’m pretty positive that our enemy, the prince of the air, Satan has no respect for your intentions.
Utilizing my power, I say to my mind, body, spirit, and maybe even you…
- You will grow.
You will live.
You will dream.
You will move forward.
When you go “home”, you will not get it twisted.
You will remember that you’re JUST visiting. 😉
