My friend, inside each of us we must face the Truth and BE LIGHT in our own storm instead of continually looking for a light to help us through the storm.
But it takes great intention to decide you have the goods to pass through this storm.
BE Light. Be there for yourself.
Not good enough?
Feeling left out?
You are not a victim.
You are victorious.
Whatever your obstacle is, you can be your own light.
It might feel dark and you might feel incapable but go look yourself in your own eyes…into your own heart and own pool of swirling emotions.
Look past your hurt.
Look past your pain.
You HAVE to CHOOSE to see through what you feel into what is truth. These are different. One captures you and takes you into use and abuse you. But, Truth. Truth is different. Truth wraps arms around you and tells you not to the swirl and no to the confusion.
Truth is a Person and that Person says look into your eyes one more time – look past the swirl and look into the eyes of Truth staring back at you from your own eyes.
You are not alone. You WILL pass through this. Allow yourself to rise up into this new place of life and let Light be your Truth.
Be LIGHT in your own storm and love yourself as you do it.
Good Grief Charlie Brown! Tonight, we watched an oldie and what I used to think was a goodie – Race for your Life with Charlie Brown. I never noticed how entirely critical and mean those kids were to Charlie Brown. Peppermint Patty yelled at him numerous times. Lucy called him names. Sally complained every moment of the movie. There was another group of kids who created havoc for all of them. In addition, these kids were on an overnight camping trip with water falls, dangerous caves, and the like. Granted we rarely see adults in these shows but this time it felt ridiculous. Craig pointed this out to me multiple times. It literally was a frequency my body rejected. Grief is not good Charlie Brown..
It hurt my heart the more I watched it. Bullying, complaining, gossiping, unkind words, mean spirited kids and it was literally from the beginning to the very end. It reminded me of how I grew up. The time was 1977 and I grew up with that kind of culture. It was like the norm and it seemed acceptable. But, grief is NOT good.
Grieving yourself or others with unkind words, complaints, thoughts and innuendos that make it impossible to believe in yourself is not good. I was 14 years old and I was not treated nicely at school or otherwise. All it did was produce rejection, low self esteem and a fear of love. This picture is of my sister Sandy and me. We were from a very dysfunctional family who did not show love toward one another. We do now but we did not then and the influence of shows like this one is evident in how we treated one another.
Maybe it does matter what we watch with our eyes just like it matters what food we put into our mouth and it matters what we listen to with our ears.
Usually, I love the Charlie Brown movies because they are clean and have a good premise and you laugh. But, I did not laugh much this time. I’m a different person than I was in 1977 and I do not want to return to the person who felt it was okay to be ruthless and retaliatory. I want to allow the influence of Love to have its way and do its work in my heart and in my body. Grief is not good.
I pray today you will take notice of your words and thoughts toward yourself and others. Love is the way. Grief is not good. Love, d
Exchange STRUGGLE for STRATEGY. I have been in a struggle for years. Sometimes it was strife filled but no longer. Now, it’s life fillled. Listening. Daily. Struggle for strategy. This is the key. So, what’s your struggle? Mine has been health? Maybe yours is something else? Family. Responsibilities. Parenting. Adulting. Gambling. Porn. Workaholic. Alcoholic. Crises after crises. Under planning. Over planning. No planning. No miney. Too much money. Stress. Strife. Competition. Stubbornness. You name it.
WE have to see how to maneuver through these days and exchange our struggle for strategy.
I’m getting new thoughts. New ideas. New ways. New processes. A fresh start to hear and see. I’m exchanging my struggle for strategy…
You can receive a strategy to depart from that thought into a new thought, It’s not too late… It feels too late in some areas but it makes me press in more to hear and understand…so don’t give up… Love-d
This little phrase is pouring through my mind – “TAKE JOY MY FRIEND – it’s not the end.”
Have courage with a brand new start. Don’t let the naysayers have their way. But command peace in your new day.
It is a choice you see to love and then Another choice to live forgiven.
So come with Me says Christ in you. I’m right here – I’ll see you through.
I’m in you and you in me. Freedom is yours in My intimacy.
It is not up to them to decide your life. It’s okay – I took that knife.
You’re free to live My Life of Love. I’m here, there, down below and above.
Oh you can run but you can’t hide. I’m your Love – you’re My Prize.
If you live in your hurt I won’t leave. I’m still right here – trust & believe.
I’m with you for the long haul dear one. I’m your Family – you’re My son. PS- you and I already won.

Hope says He is my security even when I run circles with Voices in my head. What about the voices in your head?
Oh, but it does not feel like that does not? Sometimes the storm inside is so full of voices and thoughts and ideas that you think you’re going crazy. Yet, there is One Who is not in favor of you going cray cray. Nope, They want you to lean into Them for security and stability. Father, Son and Spirit are standing strong and still as you run circles. Oh, They speak but They speak in calm not fury. Maybe you are so accustomed to the swirls that you don’t see or discern the Peace available in the midst of voices in your head.
It is like you feel attacked by birds of prey and you feel like there is no use to pray.
Yet, God is there – waiting to capture your heart and set you in a new way.
Stop and be still and hear His heartbeat instead.Do not be afraid of the voices in your head.
If you are living, you will make mistakes in this Life journey – don’t be afraid.
The choice each day to live courageously or cowardly is right before us. Sometimes it seems darker than it is. I’m learning how to recognize the hesitation attached to fear versus the caution attached to wisdom. If you feel you might be in the fear driven, compromised zone then ask for wisdom. Don’t be afraid.
Asking for wisdom is a sure fire way to grow and mature and find courage. You’ll discover solutions to problems and strength to rise. I have a simple practical example for you. I had dental surgery in early March and my mouth took two additional weeks to heal. Four long weeks felt so slow and caused concern. My organs had been fighting infection from the tooth issue and compromised my immune system even more. It was physically challenging and my health was dim.
Now we are in May and my mouth is still awkward and sore. I noticed I was moving into fear. Whoah. Stop. I paused. I asked for wisdom. I asked for direction. Don’t be afraid was whispering into my ear and attempting to redirect my thoughts.
Then I saw it. I’m grinding that area of my mouth at night. I realize that’s why I’m sore. It’s my answer. It’s simple. It’s not anything bigger to worry over. The wisdom was seeing Truth instead of assuming the worst. The Truth is that I’m ok. Don’t be afraid.
If fear is needling you at night then switch gears instead. Ask for wisdom. God is gracious to extend it. Ask with confidence and wait with assurance. Answers will come. They may not come overnight but surely your footsteps will be directed. Don’t be afraid.
A little rant. Someone was talking to me about how “high” their frequency was … and they commenced to tell me “how” they “kept” themselves so full of the “right” frequencies and not the wrong ones. Honestly, I almost spit my drink out. A little rant …
They proclaimed how mature they are and … one of their strategies for maturity is staying away from negative people.
Again, I just about laughed aloud.
I seem to recall the Greatest Teacher sharing on LOVE being patient and kind, enduring and not self seeking. LOVE loved to love…
My discovery? A little rant …
If you are literally staying away from people who love God … If you are staying away from men or women who have a desire to be like God… if you are staying away from those who are like little kids in their trust … If you are staying away from those who desire to know Him …
A little rant … Then honestly you’re the one who needs the identity – frequency change. You are separating yourself from the very ones whom God loves and is transforming.
If you are really so full of LOVE then you’ll be too busy loving instead of comparing.
Jesus said Love is the Way. Love is the highest frequency. Love is a Person Who lives and moves to be our Friend.
So if you honestly feel your love is mature and your response to this Love in you is to unfriend those whom you think don’t measure up to your frequency – you just created a separation from a place called comparison and emotions not love transformation called Done. A little rant …
There is always gonna be somebody more transformed or perfected than you. The weak and strong are supposed to live and love together. Family is supposed to LOVE one another WHILE we are being transformed.
I encourage you not to sow into some elitist attitude while calling it love especially if you follow Christ. Eventually it just backfires anyway…A little rant …
Love is the Only Way that matters and the presence of those you feel DONT fit in with your definition of peace or rest only don’t fit because of you not extending love not because of their lack of love. End of A little rant ….
Long but strong. How much more now in Christ? Remember Christ. Obedience is not works – its His deeds coming forth.
All we have is given by the LORD – the I AM – whether little or plenty. Your little might be someone else’s plenty. What you may feel is not near enough may represent riches to someone else.
Love the simplicity. When you eat and are satisfied – not gorged – not stuffed. How about when you have what you need and are happy with what you have.. OR what if it is you who has enough to give to someone else’s satisfaction?
Maybe you are sitting. Maybe you are standing. Maybe you are laying down. Maybe you are passing through.
Remember the One Who lives inside you and remember the One Who lives inside of the one next to you. Remember those things you said you would do – remember the commitments you made and maybe have forgotten or let it slip away because of your flourishing or your poverty. God speaks. HE starts seasons and HE ends seasons. HE is the Beginning and the End and the In Between. Remember.
Obeying God is from His spirit alive in you – Christ in you allows you to move forward in your health, your healing, your mental awareness, your financial increases, increasing the fruit of the spirit, increasing joy inside you while you move forward. It could be you don’t feel you are hearing. This is where God comes in with His Body – He speaks through others too. HE makes pathway where you can’t see the forest for the trees. HE speaks to others when you are down on your knees. HE is LORD of all and not just of you. So, if HE will speak to a donkey, He will get His plan through – even if through someone other than you. Remember.
There is a cooperation that comes when you remember Christ. HE gives you power to sit, power to stand, power to lay down and power to pass through. Satisfied.
Don’t forget Christ in you when you eat. Don’t forget Christ in you when you are satisfied. Don’t forget Christ in you when you build your house. Don’t forget Christ in you when you settle in. Don’t forget Christ in you when your business flourishes. Don’t forget Christ in you when your stocks increase. Don’t forget Christ in you when your money comes in. Don’t forget Christ in you when more money comes in. Don’t forget Christ in you when your standard of living goes up. Don’t forget Christ in you when your standard of living keeps going up.
Remember Christ so you don’t become full of yourself. Remember Christ so you don’t become full of all your things. Remember Christ Who delivered you from slavery to self. Remember Christ Who led you through your trials. Remember Christ Who led you through that sickness. Remember Christ Who led you through that financial upset. Remember Christ Who led you through that crisis. Remember Christ Who led you through that breakup. Remember Christ Who led you through that betrayal. Remember Christ Who led you through homelessness. Remember Christ Who led you through that divorce. Remember Christ Who led you through that death. Remember Christ Who led you through that fear. Remember Christ Who led you through that torment.
Remember Christ Who led you through that victory. Remember Christ Who led you through that creativity. Remember Christ Who led you through that friendship. Remember…
Feeling deep thoughts for the deep thinkers in grief or pain.
The pain was so deep I could not touch it yet so close I could not get around it.
Pieces of pain like glass splintered under the feet. Not sure how to move without cutting themselves.
The Pain of the feeling the deep kind.
The pain that calls, pulls and consumes. The pain of finality.
The pain of no more.
The pain of standing on the rock in strength…while you wait for joy.
My compassion meter is strong but my rescue meter competes.
It’s difficult to watch a loved one writhe in emotional pain. I want to take them in my arms until it subsides.
I want to break through the boundaries they put in place to protect themselves. I want to help them move forward.
Removing the memory connection will alleviate the instability that fearfully haunts and paralyzes them.
Removing the raw real trauma frequencies that came into their body will help restore health, wellness of mind and stability of heart.
It doesn’t change what happened to them but it does give them clarity to make new decisions from peace not pieces.
Don’t give up – you are close to the new you. You’re standing. You’re climbing.
You’re stronger than you know. You’re one of a kind. You’re safe to feel. Safe to heal. Safe to grow.
You have permission to feel your deep pain. You have permission to live again.
If you’re not safe to feel alone, get with someone who can let you express your heart.
One day you’ll see your strength. Receive truth and life. Love in the pain.
Life through the tears. Union in the brokenness. New start with a fresh breath.
In the mean time, you get to say goodbye to those old patterns, old ways of thinking, old ways of living, old ways of rejecting the ones near you or rejecting yourself. You get to face your past and move past it – it is most definitely time.
One day you’ll feel joy. One day you’ll see intention and one day it will make sense.
One day the strong strength of the rock will be infused into the memories.
One day you’ll feel the sun again through the deep thinking. Feeling deep.
