Not exactly Nemo, but Jesus! I’m going on a quest due to my three year old nephew inspiring me. He is so awesome! It’s been a while since I logged in, but the last time that I tried to post my site was not functioning for whatever reason. In due time…..

….until then, I love you, stay warm, and share love.

A wise five year old shared with me, “If you don’t know where you are going, you may end up some place else”- Yogi Berra.

Like Isaiah 43:18-19, the quote above is written on my notebook. Lately I’ve been thinking about the direction of my life and remembered my niece’s precious voice quoting such an awe inspiring message. Every time I read the quote I hear her voice. I’m thankful that she shared that with me because as I’m reflecting I’m able to put many things into the right perspective.

I don’t want to end up just anywhere. I’ve decided to know where I’m going by navigating the correct courses. I hope that you all will do the same and share with others.

A Heart that Forgives July 14, 2014

Filed under: Blogs,Videos — His Princess K @ 1:16 pm

I gotta let it go. The first time I heard this song I was “floored”. It’s so passionate, so open, so honest, so needed.

We’re made in the likeness of God. He forgives. I don’t believe that my issue is with forgiving. My issue is having something present in my life trigger a memory of past hurt and making it fresh; exposing a wound that seemed to have been “healed”, but truthfully only covered with something temporary. How do we address these wounds without hurting other people? I so desire to move forward and on. I, however, keep running into opposition.

I have forgiven. I would prefer that the pain didn’t linger.

 

Do You Not Perceive It? (Isaiah 43:18-19 NLT) July 3, 2014

Isaiah 431819

This peace. This peace that transcends ALL understanding (Phil 4:7). I’m thankful for it. As I was driving to work today my mind wandered on a subject that’s still an issue for me and I told myself that I would NOT let it get me down in a slump. And it was finished! I didn’t think about it again.

I stepped outside not too long ago because it is freezing. I am a lover of nature’s beauty….God’s beautifully crafted landscape (not so much the bugs that irritate me) so I decided to walk a lap around the church. When I came back in (it was still cold lol) I logged into my WordPress account because I’m long overdue for a new post.

I’m satisfied in the Lord, y’all. Even more so, I’m in awe of Him. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in my life and what has transpired I know that peace is available to me because He says so. I have to accept it.

I feel Him walking, sitting, and talking with me. I feel His presence and it’s oh so sweet.

Written on my notebook is “Isaiah 43:18-19”. The scripture reading itself isn’t written on it and I did that intentionally. 1) I wrote it on the outside of my notebook so that I can be reminded of it and 2) to make sure that I not wonder too long on what it is, but actually read it. And that’s exactly what happened today. I don’t pull out this notebook every day because I have two notebooks and a notepad in my bag so I use the first thing I grab, unless I recently used it and need it again (which is the case today). I’m grateful.

God is doing a new thing, yet He’s always DOING something even when I can’t physically see it. What an assurance that He never sleeps nor slumbers?! Do you not perceive it? I know that all that is behind me and what surrounds me now has and is buffering me to be the one He has called me to be. These aches, kicks, and screams are due to molding and purpose. In His Hands. In His hands I am being renewed.

“David said to the Philistine: “You come against me with a dagger, a spear, and sword, but I come against you in the name of Yahweh of Hosts, the God of Israel’s armies — you have defied Him. Today, the LORD will hand you over to me. Today, I’ll strike you down, cut your head off, and give the corpses of the Philistine camp to the birds of the sky and the creatures of the earth. Then all the world will know that Israel has a God, and this whole assembly will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves, for the battle is the LORD’s. He will hand you over to us.”- 1 Samuel 17:45-47Holy Bible

Wow! As I read that in a devotion I became really excited. Shucks, I felt like, “Man, I’m ready to roll out on Goliath with you David. Let’s go!” David told Goliath how it was going to go down with great confidence and no reluctance. For those of you who are familiar with the popular show “Scandal” picture Olivia Pope talking to someone when she’s in “Gladiator” mode and what she says goes. Got it?! Yes, that’s how sure David was certain that the Israelites would prevail.

Reading that scripture has literally made my day. It’s the after noon now, but there’s so much to navigate within this day and I am armed and ready. The Word of the Lord is my sword. May God get the glory this day and I walk with Him.

God wants us to pray. “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus”- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

Time of Growth

Two weeks ago I started a new post that I thought I would publish on the very day I was inspired to post it. Well, that didn’t happen. It is currently saved in my drafts and will be posted at a later date. The fact that it isn’t complete doesn’t stop me from writing today, however! If you’re familiar with my blog, you know that my mind tends to wander and I can ramble so as I type this I can’t even remember what exactly I wanted to write about today. Geez!

I was read last night in a book that in 2 Chronicles 32:31 God “left” Hezekiah to test him to find out what was in his heart. It made me think about the opposition that I’ve felt for quite some time now and ask “Am I being tested?” Of course,  God doesn’t HAVE to test us to examine our hearts. He already knows them just as He knew us before were formed (check out Jeremiah 17:10, 1:5, 1 Samuel 16:7, Acts 15:8, and Psalm 134:13). So why do we see this “separation” with Hezekiah. The test isn’t for God to actually see what’s in our hearts, but for us to see it. Moment of truth: I don’t like what I’ve seen lately. Moment of confessionI’ve seen anger, bitterness, despair, frustration, and have had the inclination to not only quit, but give up. Oh, trust me when I say that I have tried to be put on a façade, but those traits had taken root within me and overpowered my “fakeness”.

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice”- Ephesians 4:31

“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you”- James 1:21

What I’ve been searching for has now been found in James 1:21. The New Living Translation beginning at verse 19 says, “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls”.

I have God’s Word in me, therefore, I have the power to overcome and pull out these bad roots.

Good produces good and bad produces bad. Wouldn’t you agree? Galatians 5:22-25 – “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives” Thank You Lord for truth, love, and hope! I won’t dwell on what I haven’t had, but rejoice that I can have and produce these great fruits.

If a farmer or gardener wants quality fruits, veggies, or flowers, he or she must put the correct seeds in the soil. Otherwise, one shouldn’t be surprised to get tulips when lilies were planted. I’m choosing this day to plant, water, and nourish all things that are good and pleasing unto the Lord.
