Stumble Upon Grace

The shadows her safe place

Non stop chatter in her head

Anxiety and fear her daily bread

She would go down desperate 

roads to numb her pain

Only to wake up the same

Every open door she entered

To get rid of her pain

Looking for solace in imperfect people

Thinking they have the power 

to heal her

If breadcrumbs are all you know 

Hurting people are a feast

Yet she never fit

Never belonged

Her heart a dark hole

Mere moments light tried 

to break through

She could see a glimpse of a 

better tomorrow

Light finds His way to her heart

Through testimonies of the sons 

and the daughters Jesus freed

She saw something different in 

those He transformed

They had hope and peace even 

in the midst of challenges 

Her life a circle of fear

There is a God who sees us

Our brokenness does not scare Him

Not even our wrong choices

Our sin or our pasts

He guide’s us through our graves

The hard places we choose to ignore

Breaking down stone walls of 

guilt and regret

Till we stumble upon grace and

Father’s light breaks through places the enemy once ruled!

Rest

Last week I mentioned that I had a surprise. The surprise I did not discuss became more of a reality later in the week. My nose started to run and I have a little cough…

I really hate to discuss it all because I don’t want to draw attention to any of it, but the lesson I am learning from it is that God does desire for us to rest. Rest in HIM. Rest to heal. Rest to be with Him. Many reasons we need to rest.

I have often said that our lives often become so busy that we forget to rest. The women’s retreats I used to host were about learning to stop and rest. Learning to stop and LISTEN to His voice. Learning how to let go of frustrations and really TRUST Him. The theme was Rest and Refresh and Restore… Someday I hope to host another one!!!

The Word is clear that REST is important. As I looked at verses, this one jumped out at me:

Psalm 55:7-9 I said, “I wish I had wings like a dove! Then I could fly away and be at rest. Yes, I would flee to a place far off, I would stay in the desert. (Selah) I would quickly find me a shelter from the raging wind and storm.”

I read the whole chapter, and it is my thoughts and feelings today. There are days I feel the battle so strongly and just want it to go away. I want to run from it and find a place to hide. Then I read the following verses…

Verses 13-15: For it was not an enemy who insulted me; if it had been, I could have borne it. It was not my adversary who treated me with scorn; if it had been, I could have hidden myself. But it was you, a man of my own kind, my companion, whom I knew well. We used to share our hearts with each other; in the house of God we walked with the crowd.

How very true. It is often those who we are close to that cause the most pain. It is those who we have companioned with and spent time with. It is those who we “shared hearts with.” What does David tell us to do when these moments happen????

Verse 23: Unload your burden on Adonai, and he will sustain you. He will never permit the righteous to be moved.

The chapter ends with:

But for my part, [Adonai,] I put my trust in you.

Friends, let HIM be your ROCK and REST. Don’t run. Just find peace in the middle of the storm. Find HIS WORDS to comfort you. Let HIM sustain you.

Those are the promises I hold onto today as I rest and heal. Those are the WORDS of TRUTH that strengthen me. I pray that you can find a PROMISE from the Word today.

Shabbat Shalom,

Unmatched Legacy

On the edge of giving up

One battle after the other

Her body is bruised

Her ego even more

Seems like every demon is after her

A regular in the gates of hell

She is a worshiper

She is a warrior

Trained by the Best

Known in heaven and hell

She knows what to do…

Worship is how she fights

her battles

Instantly darkness leaves

Making way for Light

Doing what she knows best

Her worship brings heaven 

down to earth

She pours out her heart like 

an alabaster box

A costly perfume of a 

yielded life

Tears well up in her eyes

Overcome by the presence of Jesus

She remembers Holy Spirit words

“See your challenges as training”

Warriors are trained in the 

gates of hell

Discovering their identity and purpose while surrounded by enemies

He is taking you higher

Challenges, painful times are

Father’s methods of training us

Looking past the enemy

We see Jesus

The bigger picture

Warriors do not give up

We fight the good fight of faith

Bold and unashamedly

Leaving an unmatched legacy 

for generations to come.
