It wells up in my heart; from my heart
My eyes start to water
Ready to fall across my face

I feel it - in my eyes
I see it beginning to water

It’s my heart and what it is feeling
It is my heart flowing through my eyes
In the form of tears

Water coming out of my heart
Pouring through my eyes

Ugh! Quick!!! Wipe your tears 
(I say to myself)
I don’t want anyone to see
I don’t want anyone to know

What my heart speaks through my tears…

FINDING OUR WAY HOME… The Beginning

Truly I am learning about me, about myself..knowing who I am, knowing about me, knowing who Christ is in me and through me.  Looking into the deepness of me… it makes me nervous.; but I know my God is with me,

through the process, through the revelations, through this journey.

I’m recognizing things abut me, but I know I’m not alone…

My Lord and my God is with me, every step of the way through my journey of freedom.  For whom the Son sets free, is free indeed!  

Transparency takes courage; because you have to choose by faith in God to look deep inside your heart and mind, and face those dark memories, those dark emotions and allow the light of Christ, to bring you through it. Though I walk through the valley of death (darkness) I will fear no evil (for God did not give us the spirit of fear) for you Lord God are with me, every step of the way of this transformation and the processing of my freedom through Christ Jesus.

A few years ago, my granddaughters and I went to Subway’s Eat Fresh.  There was a man there, digging in the trash can, looking for food.  As we were walking in the door, I turned around and asked the man if he would like a sandwich.  He said that he would love one.  So I went in and got him a foot long tuna with all the veggies.  After I gave it to the man, we went on our way to eat our own lunches.  My oldest granddaughter said to me:  Why did you buy that man a sandwich?  You shouldn’t have.  I told her that Jesus said we should help where we can, even feeding someone.  She was so mad.  But as I explained to her, eventually she began to understand.  Mind you, she was around 7 years old at the time.  LISTEN:  All it takes is helping one life, to encourage you to help others.  JESUS said that when we help those in need we are doing it unto Him.  How else are we going to be an example to our children and grandchildren of what it is to love, to share, to give, to be an example and extension of His love?

Everyone has an opinion:
personal view: the view somebody takes about an issue, especially when it is based solely on personal judgment
estimation: a view regarding the worth of somebody or something
expert view: an expert assessment of something

But not everyone BELIEVES:
accept something as true: to accept that something is true or real
accept somebody as truthful: to accept that somebody is telling the truth
credit somebody with something: to accept that somebody or something has a particular quality or ability

I would rather you BELIEVE IN ME, instead of having an OPINION OF ME! So instead of judging me (based on your opinion), how about you accept me because you believe in me and who I am. To do that, you’ve got to get to know the ‘real’ me. Not the me of the past, but the me of today, of the NOW, of the Present!

This year is about moving forward, making changes, pressing toward the mark of the high call of God through Christ Jesus on my life, running the race, fighting the good fight, making a difference, inspiring, encouraging, and building up.  It’s about mentoring, discipleship, teaching, helping, assisting, doing, not just talking, sharing, not just waiting to receive.  To set hearts on fire with the love and passion of God.  To ignite, set fire to, fan the flame to visions and dreams that burned out, or are simmering, waiting for that breath of God to stir it all up again to bring it to its fullness and completeness <3  So tell me, what kind of IMPACT do you want to make for Jesus through your life in this world?  I want to impact the world for Him, by Him, because of Him.  Let’s go pass the fire of God, and set the world ablaze for Him with His love, His passion, all that is Him and is of Him. <3  So who’s up for an adventure for Yeshua, for Jesus? <3

In the darkness, I wonder, is there hope, is there joy, is the light?  For there are times when I cannot see my way out, of this abyss; yet my heart cries out, “Save me, please.  I don’t want to live in the darkness that seems to envelop me and keep me from rising up and moving out and forward in my life.  I can’t do it on my own.  Is there anyone out there?

And then in the stillness of my heart, I hear a voice, gentle, tender, merciful, loving… calling me, to come into the light.  And so I look up from the darkness and I see, a glimmer of light, a glimmer of hope… and as I continue to look at it, it begins to get brighter, larger; reaching toward me.  I reach out, hoping that the light will wrap itself around me and take me out of this darkness, this dreary disposition. And then I sense a warmth I have never known before, wrapping itself around me like a Father gathering a child into His arms, holding me, keeping me safe… and He takes me out of this darkness into a marvelous light… A light that is hope, faith and love all in One… because I realize the One who is holding me… is the True Light.  The One and Only Light that can and has saved me from the darkness.

Persistent/Persistence: Continuing firmly, pressing forward or toward a goal; to complete or fulfill a vision (purpose), or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

Phil 3:14- I press (persist/forging ahead) toward the mark (goal, fulfilling, completion) for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

When we persist we learn to be consistent. We are purposed on fulfilling God’s call and destiny on our lives for the glory and the advancement of His Kingdom. We become tenacious in our faith and trust in our God, His Word and His will. 

When the storms are raging, the winds are blowing and the rain is pouring; we need to know, believe and trust that Jesus, Lord and Savior, is our Shield. He protects us, veils us, covers us, and strengthens us to keep pressing, to keep walking, to keep running, to keep fighting the good fight. 

We are kept safe and secure in Him. That in spite of what we are challenged with, we know that He is with us and for us. For no weapon formed against us in any form or fashion shall prosper. For greater is He that is in us, then he who is in the world. And if He be for us, then who can be against us.

Because He is our God and King; our Savior and Redeemer; our Commander and Chief; our Everything, our All and all. Let us keep pressing, persevering, being consistent in God’s purpose in our lives for the Kingdom is at hand… 

Jesus IS coming. Amen and Amen
