DOWN but NOT OUT

GIANT IN FRONT OF ME IS NOT GREATER THAN THE GOD WHO'S WITH MEi guess i can say, the war is on…you know the deal, getting hit from every side, getting blind-sided, right hook, left jab. etc.

let’s just say it hasn’t been easy, and i know i speak for most of us right now.

it seems everyone i talk to is saying the same thing…they all feel like they’ve been in a war that’s been relentless…so, what’s the answer to that? what do you say when someone tells you they’ve been relentlessly attacked from every angle?

i can honestly say, i’m speechless when it comes to answering that question…until now…

in my continued nagging at God over these constant attacks, i’ve found the only answer was to be as relentless as my adversary!!!  i’m determined to not quit or get discouraged, but to fight the good fight and knock the enemy out of the park!!! GAME OVER!!! 

hmmmm, GAME OVER…isn’t that the truth? isn’t that what the Word says? doesn’t it declare the war has been won, and yet we continue to find ourselves in constant battle? well, i don’t know about you, but i’m not giving in to the enemy’s bullying…yep, you heard me…he’s a bully!!!! he’s no different than the kid at recess who knocks you down to take your lunch money!! he’s a BULLY!!!! and i’m not taking it anymore…i’ve decided i’m standing  up to him and reminding him he was knocked out a long time ago and i’m not standing in agreement with him anymore!!!

you see, it’s when i realized that allowing this bully to shake me down(like a mob guy), i had agreed with him out of fear! i finally got the revelation that i needed to suck it up and put on my big girl panties, look him right in the eye and stare him down!!!! yessiree…i heard the music in my head from the movie “Rocky”, and realized, i’ve got what it takes to enforce the victory, that was won for me!!!! that’s right!, no longer will i let him bully me around, even if i’m shaking in my boots, i’m STANDING up to that bully and reminding him, he’s the loser, not me!!!

it’s time for us all to remember what was done for us and what our rights are!! no more bullying, no more intimidation, no more fear!!! WE WIN…THE VICTORY IS OURS…WE ARE THE ENFORCERS…WE NEED TO REMIND HIM, HE’S THE LOSER…WE ARE STRONG, WE ARE VICTORIOUS, WE ARE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE KING…PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!

get BOLD!!! be BRAVE…STARE HIM DOWN!!! and remember, it’s not YOU…it’s Who is in YOU…and the enemy is afraid of Him…and afraid of YOU…he’s just hoping you never find out who you are and Who’s in you…so, let’s rock this out…let’s enforce the victory!! let’s knock him out and show him WHO’S we are and where our help comes from!!!!  ding ding ding…last round…it’s a K.O.

peace out…

Different Crayons Makes Life More Colorful

Different Crayons Makes Life More Colorful

hang in there with me on this one please…

you see, i’ve  always wondered  why people try to fit you into their mold (actually, i don’t even like the word “mold”, it’s a yucky word)…who says you’re supposed to be more like everyone else, or more like your mother, sister, brother, the kid down the street, etc…you get what i mean, right?
what is it about people? it’s the most frustrating thing i’ve struggled with my whole life!
but, this year i’ve given it much thought and i’ve decided that i’m going to be more like a box of crayons…you know, the really really really BIG box, with all the different colors?

yeah, that’s me…because, then i can be any color i want, given any situation…it’s not that i’m a social chameleon, by any means.  it’s just that i have such a diverse personality, and i finally realized i was born this way! so what’s a person to do wit that? well,  i’ve decided to come up with a new personality type…i’m callin’ it ” the crayon personality“…all it means is,now you don’t fit into one type, not an A type or B type…because there are those of us that would be considered a “BBC” type (BIG Box of Crayons)! you see? it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that one!!!

so, now that i have it figured out (for myself, that is), i’d say  it’s got to be a really BIG box! so that means,  there’s plenty of room for anyone who’s brave enough to jump in!! think about it for a minute, if God made us all different, then we should alllllll be who we were created to be! can you imagine what a beautiful tapestry we could make if we all hung out in the same box, not worrying about who’s what color? WOW, that’s the way i like it, we could  be anything (or any color) without hearing the noise from those who are contrary…hmmmm, it’s sounding better by the minute!

so what do you say? want to make our own creation, want to be freeeeeee?  think about it for a minute… we can all be whatever we want and we can help become an example of that beautiful tapestry …wow, we’d make God pretty proud don’tcha think?

peace out…

Divine Help Never Fails…

5 Comments

GOD WILL DIRECT UR STEPS

i apologize for this one being so lengthy, as i can’t seem to find an easier/shorter way to express myself about this subject…and, i will keep it about me, as not to judge anyone who’s been down this road…
here’s the deal…
at times when life threw me some curve balls i tried everything i could, and sometimes nothing seemed to help…i used to think i went to the right people, places and/or things for help, sometimes it helped and sometimes not.
as years went on, i found i was going to the wrong people, thinking they were friends, unfortunately i found they were only there for what they needed from me(i was ok with that b/c my heart is to help others if i can, so i understood it) but yet, it frustrated me b/c now i needed some guidance and there was none to be found, or so i thought.
i began to honestly seek divine help more than ever (i always talked to God , but i never thought i had the right to ask Him to help me with something as trivial as needing people who could teach me or pray with me for help, after all, isn’t He too busy with life’s tragedies and worldwide stuff like war, poverty and disease? i was clueless, being raised catholic i was taught prayers for myself was selfish and prideful as others needs were more important!…
i’m going to skip past this part (it will all be in my book one day lol)
i did find God had particular people He’s given me to go to for prayer and guidance and at times like this,  i will turn to those who are close to my heart and spirit…i know God has put them in my life to stand with me in the best and worst of times. some of them, sadly, have been through the worst of times and yet they are always there for me…(i will always admire and honor them for having such unconditional, loving hearts for me and others).
right now there is no human help for what’s taking place in the here and now, but i do know this, in these times i can and will seek those who God has given me, after seeking Him in all His wisdom…being soul-y dependent on Him, trusting Him and expecting Him to open the path of peace and keep me walking in it steadily as i wait for Him to bring to pass the answers i need.
i know this may sound like gibberish to some…but give me a moment to try to explain a bit…
when there is something in your life that continually causes pain and no matter what you do, it doesn’t ease up, only divine intervention can be the answer… even after some long heartfelt prayer, this is when i realize my efforts of begging or pleading are in vain…why? because there is One who was moved with compassion and love, to come to my aid…but the truth is, He was moved a long time ago and took care of business long before i needed it…
when i came to that realization for the first time, it began to give me a deeper glimpse into the reality of the One who made the earth, the stars, and all things, including human beings…
i don’t want to get into another story here, but i do know this, there is a God who is so loving, so caring, that before our troubles began, He saw to it to give us the answer to every problem before they happened…
by me thinking about ME and MY problem so much, i left out the most important part of the equation…HIM! it seems i lose sight of the whole picture at times and forget there is an answer, even if it’s beyond my seeing at the moment…
i’ve learned through the years, the more i put myself aside and choose to focus on Him the more i begin to understand things from a heavenly perspective.
it’s true i see with my eyes, but i also have spiritual eyes, and i’m choosing more and more each day to look with those eyes, they seem to tell me the truth.
i have found, that if i ask to see with His eyes i get a better perspective on each situation.
this is the divine help that never fails me…with it, i can’t go wrong, it gives me clarity without my emotions getting in my way. and my spiritual friends are an added bonus that God has given me…and silly me, all i had to do was ask for divine help, and voila!
i’m always amazed at how simple things can be…geez, if i only had the sense to understand and ask, but then again, fear kept me from asking, BUT not anymore…i’m freeeeee and it feels good, even in my given situation, i will trust Him, knowing He has all the answers, all i have to do is ask for it to be brought into the light…and, obviously, He is the one who turns on the switch…

peace out…

Getting FINE TUNED

TUNING FORKS

about a week ago i had a vision of the Lord holding a huge tuning fork. He lifted it high into the air and gently swung it as if He were banging it against something. i didn’t hear any sound but i knew in my spirit, whatever He struck caused it to vibrate. He then held it down to where His people were and i heard the words “I’m tuning the hearts of my people”.
that sounded kind of strange, and yet, i knew it was somehow a good thing…knowing that, i’m  going to get a little bold and say this; “get ready…get ready and prepare to have your hearts tuned to His…get ready to have your hearts changed by His vibrations and let Him fine tune you and vibrate/shake you into who you were called to be!”
it’s time to become who and what you were created for…
He then said, “I will do this if you CHOOSE to let me”…interesting words huh?
let’s think about that for a second…hmmmm,  what will you choose? will you allow Him to vibrate His sound into your hearts? will you be brave enough to allow the vibration to shift things around and shift things into their proper place? if you do, that would mean some things will fall away, break off and fall off you…are you brave enough to let things go?
honestly, i believe it’s time…i believe it’s long over due…can you give this some serious thought? do you think you are willing to take the risk of letting Him shake things out of you? i think i’m ready to let Him hit me with that fork, and so what if i shake, rattle and roll…what can happen, i can become something new and shine for Him like never before? maybe i’m finally ready to be used in the capacity i’ve been training for? ok ok, enough with the words, i’m in this all the way…is anyone out there ready too? let’s do this thing, let’s CHOOSE to do this…it can only be good, right?
ok God!! go ahead, hit me with your best shot…fire away!!! 
peace out

Be Fearless…Be Free!

CONFINED BY THE WALLS WE BUILD

how many of you feel confined? ask yourself why are you like this, and why did you build those walls?  and then, ask yourself, what can you do to free yourself? yes, i know it’s not always easy…BUT!
it’s time to free yourself and break down the wallsit’s your time!!
don’t be confined…BREAK FREE and enjoy the life God has given you…imagine yourself finally free, then call it into being!!
BELIEVE in the power of your words, believe in what God has spoken over you, believe in YOU…you and Him, that’s a beautiful match!!
don’t let anything confine you anymore!!!! and don’t sabotage yourself and keep yourself locked away…be brave, be fearless, be YOU!!
go for the gold, the gold in you…be who you were created to be…NO FEAR anymore…
trust that He will walk you through the veil that has kept you from seeing yourself as He sees you…walk through that web that tries to keep you clouded and restrained…
your time has come, get your hammer out and start chipping away at those walls!! piece by piece they’ll come down, giving you a glimpse of the light outside the walls…
it’s beautiful out there, it’s where you were destined to shine!! don’t keep your light hidden behind walls so thick you die slowly, never seeing the light of day!
BE FEARLESS, BE STRONG, TAKE THE STEP, LIFT THAT HAMMER!!
you CAN do it…you and Him…together swing that hammer and make the first crack…it gets easier after the first swing!
go ahead, on the count of 3, swing it
ONE…… TWO…………… THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
peace out…

DO Angels Go on Disability?

GUARDIAN (my) ANGEL LOOKS LIKE THIS

Really? Can they really feel this way?

sometimes I have to say, I can understand if my angels feel like this !

Life can be hectic and wear you to the bone...that’s when I wonder if the Angels assigned to us feel like we do? Ya think?

Days pass and time flies by faster than a speeding bullet!!!! And through it all, my strength gets zapped and I just want to fall down and close my eyes, falling into a deep sleep!

does life really continue this way?  This is when I wonder how much do our angels have to endure? I’m convinced mine are sitting in this exact position, asking the good Lord if they can be put on disability for a long stretch of time!

am I the only one who feels this way? Am I crazy?

Feel free to add your thoughts …I’m really wondering About this…I’m slowly crashing and not liking it…obviously I’m not getting any younger 😉

Peace out
