Scars run deep

Braver Saturday -Time may heal but scars run deep. I know a family. The woman told God that their relationship was going on the back burner. That she would pick up her relationship with Him later. The results? Marriage ripped apart. Families and friends ripped apart. Divorce. Is it all fine now? Sure. Time may heal but scars run deep. Sometimes wrecking your own and other people’s lives is avoidable. If we just listen and obey. Be righteous even when it hurts. Even when you are so deep into it that you feel there is no way out. Cry out to Father. He has the solutions. HE has not left you. If you are in rebellion and you still hear His voice then I encourage you to not take advantage of the grace but tune into His righteousness and let him lead you. Who knows? Maybe He has a different or better plan? A byproduct of relationship with Father is you want to please Him. In this place called Grace, is there still obedience? Did Jesus obey so that we did not have to??? Is that really the grace Father has for His children? To do the wrong thing on purpose is still called rebellion even in grace. Kinda like a little kid who is asked to make their bed by their parents. Perhaps disobedience is at times just immaturity? Father has no condemnation but He does have correction that brings direction. Thoughts? Love-d #moms #marriage #church #jesus #death #life #professional #fit #blogger #faith #blog #instablog

Be stronger

Braver Saturday – One more weight.

One more crunch.

One more plank.

One more time.

One more day. I’m alive and thankful for strength. #bebraver Don’t give up. It will be worth it. Love-d

´╗┐Gloom & Doom

Braver Wednesday –

Today gloom and doom visited me. Distracted, I almost let them in my home. But, I remembered their pungent smell, their destructive presence, and their confused lifestyle. I remembered when they exited my body. I remembered how I told them not to return. So, it’s been a while old friends…I recognize your voices and continue to say no. One day you will show up and find nobody here that you know. #bebraver Say no to your enemy til you yourself get the picture. Love, d

You have purpose

Super Saturday – You have purpose friend. Regardless of your yesterday – your very breath gives you purpose. Peer through the dark. Wait. You’re too close to sunrise to give up now. 

Until soon-d 

 

Troubled waters

Fearless Friday – In due season there will be a breaking through. Troubled wares come to all. It threatens to overwhelm you- even drown you. You remain on your back attempting to rest. You feel you can stay afloat if you keep your head above water. So you float in the troubled waters all the while cognizant that you cannot remain on your back forever. Then you get an inkling of an idea. Why don’t you stand up? Thought. You reach your feet down to find the water is only waist deep. Stand up in the troubled waters. You may find your solution is to walk out to shore instead…

Until soon- d 

 

Chronic Pain

Fearless Friday -Pain has a way of debilitating a person. Your days miserable. Your nights sleepless. Constant agony brings a forced smile. You want to hide reality but authenticity calls you. The last thing you want to be is a downer but really what is there to be up about. People don’t want to be around you because everybody wants happy. Yet happy is a memory. This is my question- how do you help someone who is in chronic pain?

1. Don’t not see them just because you don’t like their negative attitude. 2. Don’t not call them just because you don’t know what to say. Don’t condemn what you aren’t experiencing.

Listen. Just learn how to love by reaching out…one day at a time…one call at a time and one visit at a time.

Until soon/d
