We have a problem.

Listen guys. I am in New York and was caught in the middle of a myriad of men and women picketing against white supremacy (not for it) and holding signs for only one group of women- #blacklivesmatter (for it). We have a problem.

what makes anyone’s color better than another? You and I were both made inside a woman’s belly. ALL colors of humanity start out the same size my friend- the same size. What makes a black or white woman’s life LESS IMPORTANT or MORE IMPORTANT than an Asian or Native American woman OR any other woman on the planet? All lives matter yet we have a problem.

If you or I see the color of our skin as more or less significant than the color of someone else’s skin then … we have a problem. We are blinded by self and we will only see ourselves because we have forgotten.

It’s level as we are born the same – all the size of a grain of rice! Its level when we die and ALL our skin no matter what color goes bye bye. All that happens in between is part of our personal story. I know a man whose story blew me away. He believed in you and me. HE Himself created us in His own image. He lived on the planet as you and me. He died as you and me. He was buried as you and me. He was resurrected as you and me. But we have a problem. We have forgotten … that it was level at the foot of the cross and it was level in the resurrection and we were all there with Him through it all.

Love is all that’s matters now my friend and we each get to choose for ourselves. Lets quit the blame game and play the “we are the same” game. No longer do we have a problem because Love won …

Vital Insight

It sometimes takes years in the journey…to live, to learn, to experience life and living.

Some want to usurp the journey and bypass the process. Yet it’s in the process you see the beauty, the raw revelation of relationship in Christ.

Through the pain and broken heartedness I gained vital insight in Christ. Did I enjoy the hurt? Of course not. Yet God lived through it all. God draws and divides truth from lies, good from evil, love from fear. It’s been beautiful and though there may be some things I would do different- I have respect for the process and journey. Christ in me always lived and loved me as I discovered who He was with and in me. Love-d

There was a time…

IF you can relate – type I GET IT! There was a time many years ago when I would not sleep for #fear I would wake up dead.

There was a time many years ago when I blamed #sickness on disease. There was a time many years ago when I refused relationships for fear they would die and leave me alone.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed with doctors who said I would not live past 30.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed I would die like my mom.

There was a time many years ago when I felt you would not love me if you really got to ‘see’ me.

There was a time when I thought I would disappear into depression.

There was a time when I gave up and wanted to die.

There was a time…

There was a time…

There was a time…

But God.

I said, “But God.”

Yes, it sometimes required a #fight.

Yes, it sometimes required my will overriding overwhelming #emotions filled with #darkness and #despair.

Yes, it required me contending for life I could not yet see.

But God.

I said, “But God.”

So, my #friend if you have read until the end, I want you to know that overcoming that which wants to overcome you is worth it.

Knowing That One Who overcame the world and lives inside of you and lives inside of me is worth it.

And I’d do it again.

You – don’t you give up and don’t you turn back and don’t you give in to those #death filled thoughts and ideas. Choose life because Life chose you and you were and are worth choosing. But #God. I GET IT!! Share so that someone struggling about ‘there was a time’ will choose life. #REPOST Love-d

The Process

Change is a process. We want a silver bullet but it is all about the process. It’s called renewing the mind. It’s not a one time event. You don’t expose lies and vows and change into a different person like magic. You take bite after bite into the lies of who you have thought yourself to be and you let yourself make new decisions as you unfold who God says you have already BECOME. Be patient with you as you let yourself become the brand new you. Be kind to those around you in their process too.

You get to look change in the eye with courage and confidence and kindness and eventually realize your worldview has changed. You have gone through the process of thinking differently – toward yourself and those surrounding you – one decision at a time. Love-d

The Desert is Never Forever


Braver Saturday – it’s a season. Don’t let the moment steal the entire year.love-d

What if it’s you?

Winning Wednesday- it could be someone has wronged you and you are upset deep inside where no one can see it. Maybe it’s so deep you can’t see it. Maybe it’s you who have wronged another. Friend, remember that you have both been forgiven. #BEBRAVER and Agree with His mercy that triumphed over His judgement – and yours. Love-d 

 

I Could Lose It Today!

Motivated Monday – All day. Tests.

Not my fave.

Today is a bare moment where I’m telling you that I’m choosing not to become an emotional wreck. Oh I could. Really. But what would it do? It would send me over the edge. This is why I choose calm over chaos, peace over pieces and a soft answer over anger. I’m not super woman, I’m not perfect. I too can lose it.

But not today.

No- Not today. 

 

Overtaken

Fearless Friday – to be the humble one who loves and does not condemn- to be BRAVE and actually speak words of love and kindness to that one who has fallen from grace. To treat them as you would prefer to be treated.  Be love. Be patient. Be kind. Be the new you from the new covenant. 

 

Praying for You

Tenacious Tuesday-Pray with me – Father, we come in Jesus name and ask You to reveal by Your Spirit any wrong done that has affected how we relate to others including ourselves. We change our mind God. We sever this from us and command it to be under our feet once and for all. Show us how to approach others for restoration – even if we are not in the wrong. We ask You to forgive us Father for You paid the price for us to stay in right standing with You and one another. We receive Your forgiveness. We forgive ourselves. We forgive them God – we know who they are and we choose to forgive. Show us how to talk to them before its just too late and the enemy has his way. Show us how to talk to ourselves too. We release Your peace, Your forgiveness, Your mercy and Your restoration into us and those around us in Jesus name and with His resurrection power which no foe can withstand. Let it be. Let it be.  

 

Divided Heart

Super Saturday-How is your mouth with those you hold dear? If tomorrow does not come with you and that person – how will you handle it? Will you be guilt ridden? Will you be filled with regret? Pain? Condemnation? If that is the case then you are a candidate for a new heart toward not just them but yourself and with God. Don’t go to sleep tonight without righting what has been wronged. Don’t allow yourself to have a divided heart toward yourself or others. EVEN if none of it is your fault.

Love, d
