Too much Hope?

When someone offers you what feels like “too much hope” through an unorthodox way whether it be mental, physical or emotional and you say no based on something that happened in the past to you or to someone else…….. I just want to remind you that you might just miss your opportunity to have a positive change to your life.

What if your no to this “weird too much hope” can’t explain or understand it thing is your no to you speaking, talking, hearing or walking?

Let your tomorrow be different than your past.

And if you are afraid to hope too much because of being disappointed in the past …all I can tell you is that I would prefer to step out and be disappointed than stay stuck in hopelessness which says NO to anything positive. What about you?

I know…. this may not make sense to all of you but some of you get it.

Stop being afraid of your own shadow.

Stop being afraid of the impossibilities.

Start saying hello to the possibilities.

Start saying hello to even ONE LITTLE STEP FORWARD!!

Hope again!

I almost refused to share with someone today something that I know has the capability to change her life and the lives of those around her. Almost.

Then, I felt that nudge inside….. “Why are you afraid to bring hope?” We met with a family and literally changed their lives in a positive way. It was NOT false hope. It was not healing either…but it was definitely improvement. Thank You God!

I remember years ago I was in a situation with a church staff/pastor where our belief systems collided. They called to ask me questions about whether I believed that God healed today. I had been hanging out with some of the women in his church and he was “concerned”. As we explored our conversation, it was as if I had a rope around my neck and I would not get out alive. You see, I did not graduate a seminary (or cemetery) is what my pastor 25 years ago said it was called. Anyhow, my point is that I was fairly new in leaning strongly into believing God healed instead of thinking He did not. After a very long conversation, the bottom line was that he had been hurt years ago – his church he felt had been hurt years ago from what he believed to be “false prophetic words” regarding healing and atonement and all that went in between. His point however was that all those comments and prophecies did was give false hope because that person died. They were devastated and he insinuated that his church was devastated and that it created basically a bad name for God and so he did not want me to influence his church with a belief system that included atonement. I was stuck.

How do I honor this pastor and his belief system and honor God and His belief system and help the women continue to move forward into more life in Christ and let them have their OWN belief system? I was not ruled by fear and the ladies did not want to be ruled by fear either. After all, God IS LOVE – He does not “just love”… I had to choose. I was not scared which honestly was miraculous at the time because I had such a strong submission to authority and wanted more than anything to please pastors or anyone in any kind of leadership and authority… But there was a VOICE…….inside me.

THE Voice – THAT Voice INSIDE me.

I KNEW that voice… I did not know all the information that pastor knew and I did not know how to lead a church but I knew inside me that I was safe to believe and Hope in the One Who healed and believe in healing. This was HIS leading from the inside of me.

Was this pastor lead by the same voice? I believe so but we all hear through our own filters. Maybe there were places inside me that were developed differently than the places in His heart inside him. He was mature and I was mature but in different areas. Now, many years later I’m mature in other areas and have changed. I have great respect for his heart for his congregation and his desire to protect them. On the other hand, I realize I must follow that voice…as I learn and grow I would prefer it to be in hearing Him not just hearing information and following doctrines of safety.

I had seen some healed. I had been healed of some conditions supernatural. Years later, I have experienced more of the same – healed and not healed. Yet, is this because our God of Hope is inconsistent? Is this because God is not a Healer? If I’m not healed, is God the bad guy?

These are thoughts that we all have from time to time right? When you are growing in what you know about Creator…you ask questions and when you are growing in Who Creator is or what you think He is…you ask questions and when you actually converse with Him and get to know Him and you feel He is getting to know you…and you think HEY is God a Person Who hears me and knows me and is real and HE KNOWS ME????? WOW. Everything changes. Share with friends.

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.

Outside The Box

Motivated Monday-We put ourselves, others and God into a box every day. Someone I trust told me I am outside the box and that I color outside the lines. Then she continued to say that God doesn’t color inside the lines either. If He is willing to be creative why aren’t we? We are made in His image!!

So why do we like it inside a box?  Why? We want to control. Fearful. We don’t trust. 

I admit I’m misunderstood outside the box. I admit my friendships – as in true friends who are there for me and not just be there for them – are few. It’s daring. It’s out there. It causes people to mistake your confidence for arrogance. They mistake your focus for snobbery and your intensity makes them uncomfortable. But at the end of the day – you have to be true to you. Who are you? You will never discover your potential by remaining inside a comfortable perspective. 

My suggestion????

Walk away from the box. Get outside of it. 

You are free.

To be. 

Outside. 

Now.

Free them to be outside. Quit controlling others so that you feel safe. Just control you – much less pressure when you stick to your own business. You mom or caregiver- it’s how you do what you do that matters. Give choices instead of ultimatums. Be kind. Be patient. With you and them.

RUN!! Help them run.

Laugh! With yourself and others.

EnJOY!!! You and them. Joy is from the inside and it’s how you get strong. His Joy. In you. Helps you live-

Outside.  The. Box.
