It’s Never Too Late to Let God Move In

God wants to fit into every space within Your heart. Will you let Him? It’s Never Too Late for Your Dreams to Come True. God is Still Changing Lives for the Better. Finish the Process. Have you ever tried to make something fit when it really didn’t? You are just becoming exhausted while you are pushing and trying to maneuver things into place according to your perspective of the layout for your life. I know I have done this and probably looked a tad bit crazy doing it. Hey, it probably happened again this week. 🙂 I knew it wouldn’t work; but, in the moment, I refused to give up on “my” dream of making it so. […]

God wants to fit into every space within Your heart. Will you let Him in?

MY FAITH EXPRESSIONS

Hello and Welcome to My Faith Expressions.

It’s another day! It’s another grand opportunity to make room for God. Is there anything that you need to release so God can fit right in?

Word of Hope for Today:

It’s Never Too Late for Your Dreams to Come True. God is Still Changing Lives for the Better. Finish the Process.

Have you ever tried to make something fit when it really didn’t? You are just becoming exhausted while you are pushing and trying to maneuver things into place according to your perspective of the layout for your life. I know I have done this and probably looked a tad bit crazy doing it. Hey, it probably happened again this week. 🙂 I knew it wouldn’t work; but, in the moment, I refused to give up on “my” dream of making it so.

Sometimes, we make decisions and we know they are the wrong ones. It’s so obvious to us and those around us that what is happening to us does not fit with God’s will. Nevertheless, because we don’t want to look as though we have failed or we don’t know what we are doing, we refuse to step away and take our hands off of it. We won’t let God remove it and give us better; what He knows will work and fit into our lives.

Follow In His Footsteps

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I exalt You and glorify the precious name of Your dear Son, Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living Eternal God. For when I see Him, I also see You. When I glorify Him, I also glorify You. You are One with the Holy Spirit. I will sing of Your unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens. Lord, I have come to realize that only You can help me and truly rescue me from the depths of my sin. Without You and what Your Son exhibited in His death, burial and resurrection, I would be destroyed forever, left with nothing and no one to bring me out […]

God, If I Will Stick With You

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. I don’t want to miss anything You might want to share with me, today. I still have so much that I must learn, not just so that I will know the way, but so that I may enlighten others according to Your commands and instruction for faithful obedience. If I will stick with You, You will teach me all that I need to know. Heavenly Father, I will never fully arrive until Christ returns for me. Things are ever changing around me. I don’t want to get lost in the disruptions that this life brings. According to Your mighty and powerful Word, the grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of my God stands forever […]

In desperation, God, I will stick with You!

Let God Take You Higher

Enjoy the ride and when the doors open up, walk into your destiny. He is building you up and He strengthens you with each level higher that you go. When I arrived at work today and walked into the building, I arrived to see an elevator, with its doors open, waiting for me. “Now that’s rare!” I thought. Well, rare for where I work, as this never happens. I realized that someone might have been looking out for the next person who would arrive, sending down from above what was needed to carry them up to the next level. This rarity of forethought is not always visible to us. It’s almost unrecognizable in the world that we live in; this me, myself, and I world […]

When I arrived at work on yesterday and walked into the building, I arrived to see an elevator, with its doors open, waiting for me. “Now that’s rare!” I thought. Well, rare for where I work, as this never happens. I realized that someone might have been looking out for the next person who would arrive, sending down from above what was needed to carry them up to the next level. This rarity of forethought is not always visible to us. It’s almost unrecognizable in the world that we live in; this me, myself, and I world. This small gesture shows great compassion for one’s fellowman (woman) and can be placed within the category of being a servant; looking out for others and thinking beyond one’s self. I instantly became excited about what God was showing me in the moment.

Hand It Off – God will Carry it the Rest of the Way

Pray the Scriptures: Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your kingdom. I adore You as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from You alone, for You rule over everything. Power and might are in Your hand, and at Your discretion people are made great and given strength. “O my God, I thank You and praise Your glorious name!

This is not how You intended for my life to be, but because of sin and its presence in the world, I must continue to walk towards You in search of everything that I need to sustain me and uplift me in this dying world. I have a way of escape and for this I am able to rejoice, in spite of when things become blurry for me.

Nothing that comes my way has to keep me burdened down when I hand it all back over to You.

Nevertheless, what a sense of joy when I saw “My Faith Expressions” listed as a nominee by a fellow Christian Blogger, DeborahMarie. It is surely nice to be considered as someone who is uplifting hearts through writing what God allows for me to share. I know that I don’t always get it right, but my heart is right, and I truly desire to hear from Him when I have the opportunity to share with you.

Check out DeborahMarie’s blog and I guarantee you will be blessed! Her blog is titled “Great Is God’s Faithfulness”. That, He definitely is; FAITHFUL!

******************

RULES:

  1. Use the sunshine blogger award logo
  2. Give thanks to the blogger that nominated you
  3. Answer the 11 questions given to you
  4. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions

********************

Here are DeborahMarie’s Questions for me:

  1. Are you an owl or a lark?  (stay up late or early riser)

I am definitely an early riser, but then again, I think I also stay up late with a few cat naps during the evening. I don’t know how I do it, but I often function off of probably 5 hours of sleep. It’s not that I do not want to sleep, but often my brain stays awake, if you know what I mean. LOL

  1. What do you do for fun?

My life right now is dedicated to helping a loved one reach their full potential in life, so I don’t do much right now outside of working, attending weekly church services, and pouring into him (my son). I do enjoy watching tv, more so old shows from the 80’s and 90’s (dating myself); but that is when tv was really good. I love a good reboot. Of course, I enjoy reading books, but I find it more difficult to do so during the warmer summer months. But hey, fall and winter, are right around the bend (I know! I know! Don’t mention it! :-)) and I have plenty of books stacked up to get me through those months. I’m sure that I will read something interesting to share with you.

  1. What are your spiritual gifts?

If I had to pick a few, I think teaching would be one, although I haven’t yet put that gift into full action. I need confidence in that area in public settings, that is where blogging has become beneficial to me because I believe that I am able to exercise that gift through the Holy Spirit, this way, and reach others, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and prayerfully I am being used by God to glorify Him. Others would be discernment, faith, and wisdom. I’m a little different, or so I have always thought, but I believe it’s because of the wisdom that God has given to me. I try to share that with others when asked for direction. I pray that when I have something of substance to say that it benefits others and is a part of God’s plan to guide their lives.

  1. Have you made Jesus the Lord of your life? If so, how did it happen?

Yes, I have. I grew up in the church. I have been a Pastor’s daughter for 39 years. That was not always easy. I will just leave it there. LOL So, I’ve always known who Jesus is, but I would have to say in my later 20s is when I made my own decision to really trust God and walk according to His will for me. It was no longer based on just what I was taught and being a certain way because I felt like I had to be, but more because I wanted to experience His grace and mercy within my life on a daily basis and personal level. It’s been a process and the older I get, the more I understand Him. Life’s experiences will definitely teach you who God really is in your own life.

  1. Do you have a life verse?  If so, what is it, and why?

My go to verses for this season are:

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Ephesians 1:18 (KJV)
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

  1. What is your favorite characteristic about yourself?

This one is a little tough. You know we are our worst critics. But, I believe that I am an understanding and compassionate person. I don’t know if everyone around me sees my heart, but, I try to find the good in every person and every situation. Sometimes when life gets a little intense, it is hard to do so, but then I bounce back and I look for God in everything. I’m a work in progress.

  1. What is one valuable lesson you have learned in life?

Never doubt God. Waiting is part of His plan, as it is causing spiritual growth and the ability to help others who may have to walk this same path as me. His “No’s” mean there is better coming and some seemingly “No” answers are just “Not Yet”; so, don’t get frustrated. Shake off those negative feelings. Don’t give up. Believe in the God of the impossible.

  1. When did you know you were a writer?

I always had pen and paper with me, most times, growing up. I get that from my mother. LOL I have always been sort of an introvert (hey that’s the next question), so writing was always my better method of expressing myself. I am also a visual person, so writing allows me to see it and that helps when trying to recall things to apply to my life circumstances.

  1. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Introvert, with some extrovert tendencies depending on the crowd. LOL

  1. Do you dread or look forward to your birthday?

I don’t dread it (I’ll be 48 next week), but I also don’t make a big fuss. I’m not much for a lot of attention (see #9). LOL

  1. Which do you prefer:  city or country, fried or baked, sweet or salty, book or movie, drive or fly, cook or takeout?

City, Fried, Salty, Book and Movie, Drive (if I’m not going to get stuck in traffic), Fly (if the flight is non-stop – One flight up and down to get there and One flight up and down to get back; therefore, I will drive further to get to a larger airport), Takeout, but the budget often says Cook. LOL

Here are “My Faith Expressions” Questions for me:

  1. What prompted you to begin blogging?
  2. What do you most want to get across to others in your writing?
  3. What is your favorite time of the day (morning, afternoon, evening) and why?
  4. What makes you laugh (medicine for the soul) or brings you the most joy here on earth?
  5. Do you prefer the outdoors or the indoors? Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter?
  6. What are your two most favorite activities?
  7. What is the last book that you read or movie that you enjoyed?
  8. If you could write a two to three sentence blog directly to heaven, what would you say?
  9. What is your go to Bible Translation and what passage of Scripture speaks to you today?
  10. If you could choose only one food item to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be? It could be a specific dish or style of food (Chinese, American, Italian, French, Mexican, etc…).
  11. Did you enjoy this question/answer process?

No Competition in This Race

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as I continue to run this race, I desire to keep my eyes stayed on You. Although I am in this race, help me to remember that there is no competition within the body of Christ, for we all aim towards the same goal of living faithfully until Christ’s return. As Your Word says, Lord, give me the grace to love others with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each of them. Do not let my words slander or tear down anyone, as we all walk this journey to bring into line our lives according to Your Word.

What is Good for Me

No matter what comes and goes, I am safe in Your arms. I know that nothing can harm me or ever take me away from You. I will continue to take delight in You Lord, and as a result, You will give me my heart’s desires. Thank You Lord for being a faithful God. There is much that my heart does desire.

God, I’m Not Sure

Look for God in all situations. He’s there, even when you feel stuck and just aren’t sure. It’s a great day to trust God. He has all power in his hand. He knows what is best and He will bring you out of any storm and place your feet on solid ground. What a mighty God He is! Distractions may come, but you can trust God to fulfill His purpose. The things that we may call distractions, perhaps God has allowed those to stop us in our tracks so that we will take the time to seek after Him. Even when we are confused about what to do next and just aren’t sure, we can always feel our way toward God and find Him, though He is not ever far from any one of us […]

MY FAITH EXPRESSIONS

Hello and Welcome to My Faith Expressions.

It’s a great day to trust God. He has all power in his hand. He knows what is best and He will bring you out of any storm and place your feet on solid ground. What a mighty God He is!

Word of Hope for Today:

Distractions may come, but you can trust God to fulfill His purpose.

My blog posts tend to alternate between Intentional Prayer, a little bit of teaching based on my understanding of God’s Word through the revelation that He gives to me and through my day-to-day application and lessons learned, and a sprinkle of personal testimony to encourage another, in order to let someone, anyone know that they are not alone. As I look back, I realized that this week’s posts were mainly directed towards Intentional Prayers to God. Why, I asked myself? Because this past week, I had several moments of just not being sure. What did I do when I felt this way? I turned to prayer, where I could get some relief and hear from God. I chose to quiet myself and turn to Him.

When you just don’t know what to do, turn to God in prayer.

The other day, I had one of “those” days. I must admit that I was having a hard time focusing. I was not being very productive. I was what you may call mentally distracted. I cleaned off my desk and dusted a bit. I logged into some systems, so that they were up on my monitor, but I could not seem to get truly focused. I am kind-of between projects, so thank God that my moment of difficulty really was not hindering the progress of those around me. I could have gotten a jump on some things, but my wandering thoughts would not allow me to do so.

You see, I wasn’t really moving forward in my day or being very fruitful. I was just kind of putting in time, trying to make it to lunch, then trying to make it to my departure time. I really had nothing that I needed to rush home to, but I was allowing some of the cares of life to dictate my day. It wasn’t that I was “overly” worried or really burdened down, as has been the case on other occasions, but I felt a bit defeated because things were not progressing as I would have preferred. Thinking on these things had me hemmed up in a corner where nothing else really seemed to matter in the moment. I wasn’t going backward, but I also wasn’t moving forward. I was in a state of “blah”-ness, if you will (I know it’s really not a word).

When My Words Fail

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I want so badly to help others to see that You have better for them. Lord, I don’t want to do anything of my own strength; therefore, I need Your power to work in my life. Guide me. Give me what to say and when to say it. Lord, it is my prayer that every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God is destroyed right now in the name of Jesus. Capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. The only way is through Jesus Christ. Let my words speak about what Christ did on the Cross for us ALL and let Your promises draw them near. Lord, once they hear about Jesus and learn the truth that comes from him, teach them […]

I’m a Winner

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, despite all that comes my way by the hand of the enemy to try to override what has already been done through Jesus Christ, overwhelming victory is mine through Christ, who loved me. I am able to win life’s battles because the price has already been paid on the cross. Now, all I have to do is walk in the Victory that is already mine. Thank You Lord, because through Your great plan for me, I’m a winner. My soul has been redeemed and eternal life already belongs to me. As I strive to draw closer to You each day, continue to pour out wisdom through Your Word. Open up my understanding. Give fresh revelation each day, so that I may apply Your Word and walk Victoriously, allowing others to see the great and mighty God that I serve […]

Trading Our Pain for God’s Gain

In your deepest, darkest place of pain, God can and will use it for His gain, then He’ll turn your pain into Overwhelming Victory. Through your lowest valley, God’s saving hand of mercy is still moving all around you. As He did with the life of Paul, let Him use your life for good. When our words are backed by the power of Jesus Christ, demons have to flee. Nothing that comes against us can stand up to this great name. But also, our lives must be aligned with the will and Word of God. We cannot be living any kind of way and expect the power of God to be working in and through our lives. Paul was doing what he was called to do. He was on a mission to strengthen others in the gospel of Jesus Christ […]

MY FAITH EXPRESSIONS

pain_gain_280258404_larger

Through your lowest valley, God’s saving hand of mercy is still moving all around you. As He did with the life of Paul, let Him use your life for good.

After Paul’s conversion, He visited many cities where he preached the Word of the Lord. He had a heart for new believers and wanted them to continue in the faith. During a part of his ministry, Paul chose Silas to travel with him with the goal of strengthening the churches.

Acts 16:16-18 (NLT) says,
16 One day as we were going down to the place of prayer, we met a slave girl who had a spirit that enabled her to tell the future. She earned a lot of money for her masters by telling fortunes. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, and they have come to tell you how to be saved.”
18 This went on day after day until Paul got so exasperated that he turned and said to the demon within her, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And instantly it left her.

Here, Paul demonstrates great faith in the power of the name of Jesus Christ. In boldness, he commanded that this demon come out of her, not by his own power, but by the power of the name of Jesus Christ. What happened? God’s word says that “instantly it left her”.

When our words are backed by the power of Jesus Christ, demons have to flee. Nothing that comes against us can stand up to this great name. But also, our lives must be aligned with the will and Word of God. We cannot be living any kind of way and expect the power of God to be working in and through our lives. Paul was doing what he was called to do. He was on a mission to strengthen others in the gospel of Jesus Christ. He had lived a previous horrible life of sin, but once he made up his mind to live for Christ, he gave his all to the ministry, as well as to his purpose that God had placed in him. As a result, he was able to speak the name of Jesus Christ and obtain immediate visible results of the move of God.

A Heart for God

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as my heart is sustained by You, let my heart be only for the things of God. Lord, I want all that I do to delight in You. Every thought, every action is not always Christ-like, so I pray that You reconcile my missteps and align them to Your desire for me. Let the things that settle within my heart be pleasing to You. Though my heart has been broken on many occasions, because of human error and frailty and others seemingly not knowing the best way to treat me, You work through Your healing virtue to mend the shattered pieces and keep my heart pumping, anticipating the goodness that You have prepared for me. When my expectations of others have fallen short, You have shielded my heart from exploding beyond recognition […]

Even When…God Lead the Way
