“God Is Light”

God ask’s me to go down this path, but I fearfully look back at the path I just traveled. The battles were intense and some I thought would be the one that would take me down for good. I know that God was with me through every one of them, but sometimes it felt I walked alone, fought alone and cried alone.
I look ahead again. What was dark and scary before is now enlightened with the light of God’s face. A sudden Peace flows over me and a boldness that I can not explain. When I look up and see light radiating from the lion of the tribe of Judah’s face, my protector and my shield, I know that no weapon, no device, no plan of the enemy will ever be able to stop me. I boldly grab my sword and shield, put on my full armor and with the strength Jehovah gives me, I head into the unknown. 

Unknown future, Unknown battles, Unknown works and Unknown use’s that God has in store. I trust in Him to protect me as I start this new journey. The light is my guide and the word is my shield. I will not fear, because Jehovah is always looking upon me and I am under His domain of protection.

**God gave me this Prophetic Piece to create and then the story behind it, and He wants us to know:

~Whatever God is asking you to do. Wherever God is asking to to go. However He plans to use you, never be afraid to step out and let Him fulfill His plans for your life. He made you, has had a plan laid out for you before you were born and will get you to your destination if you will fully Trust Him and have Faith that He is all powerful and always in control no matter the situation.  Jeremiah 29:11

 

Pour Love Into My Soul, Oh Lord.

When my heart needs refreshed,

pour out your love rain and quench the thirst in my soul.

Like a web your spirit pours into every fiber of my being.

Every part of me is revived.

Revive me Lord, with your healing Rain

I snapped this photo today on my deck.  Rain drops on a web made a beautiful picture.  I used tips from a blog post on the reader about a close up photo challenge.  I am happy with the way this photo turned out. 

A 4 letter word…

Sailing through this thing called life, at some point or another we find that we feel that 4 letter word.  Sometimes it hits us like a ton of bricks, but other times we have to work to feel it.  What is this 4 letter word I speak of?

LOVE!

An emotion that makes you go crazy, lose your mind, or even makes you do things you never thought possible.

Without it we feel empty, like a part of us is missing.  If we have it we take it for granted….don’t we?!

It’s like a tug of war.  We want to feel loved, but on the other hand when we have only known love our whole lives we will almost always take it for granted.  Is that just a part of our human nature?!

God’s promises to us is that He will always love us no matter what we have done, or who we are.  Yet we take His Love for granted after we are showered with it.  We forget that we have a loving Father watching over us, and that He is always loving us even when we mess up.  God is merciful, ever-loving and forgiving.  All a part of His unconditional Love for us.  That big empty spot in your life can only be filled with Gods love.

That 4 letter word has a new meaning when God comes in and fills your heart.  It will never be the same……………..I should know, He filled mine 15 years ago.        

1 John 4:7   

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.”

Who am I and Why am I here?

I am a small town girl from West Virginia, and I am here to share a piece of myself that many of my friends and family get to see daily on my Facebook page.  I Love writing, it is a passion of mine.  To be able to sit in a quiet place and see a story unfolding right before my eyes is calming and stress relieving for me.  I love seeing my characters come to life, and later sharing a small piece for friends to read and critique.

I also enjoy photography.  Mainly outdoor/nature photos, instead of people.  Nature has a way of catching my eye.  I don’t mind taking picture of people, but with nature I don’t have to worry about posing trees or helping a sunset move so that I can find the right light.

My writing has been pared with my love for God.  I love allowing Him to flow through me and help me write posts that uplift others as well as myself.  Many times I have found that whatever I am going through, as I read back through the post I will see that God was using the words to speak to me for my current situation.  I always get teary eyed, and smile when it happens.  I hope to share those moments with you all, which is why I decided to start a blog.

My Favorite verse that has pulled me through many hard times is this:

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord…..Plans to Prosper you, and not to harm you.  Plans to give you Hope & a Future.  ~Jeremiah 29:11”

When I am in a trial, this scripture will pop up many different ways and places.  Again, I smile and get teary eyed, because I know that God is telling me to lift my head and wait upon His plans for me.  God has a plan for each of our lives.  If we wait patiently and expectantly for Him, He will set us in motion for the plan that He has prepared for us.

Be Blessed and Wait upon the Lord,
