Broken Shells

DSC_0060
So when you’re washed up on shore in a heap of debris and broken shell, and when there’s nothing left but empty, you’re still sitting in God’s grace ‘cuz His grace runs on empty! He gives something for nothing all the time and when we’re so undeserving of even that next breath, He makes it happen just because He’s God and just because He’s all about you. His love is lavish and His mercy extensive and it’s all over you in that heap of brokenness. So, when there’s no where to go….where to from here? A good choice is right into His arms of protection! Ask Him to fix it and guide you in your next thought, your next choice and your next step and know that’s it’s all ok ~ it’s alright to be empty and broken ‘cuz that’s where we can be repaired and refilled and recycled for His glory. You ~ broken, beautiful soul, are right where He wants you. So begin today to reprogram with the One who made you. Oh there might be loss in the healing and restoring process but growing closer to God through it all is our greater fortune! Rest for now in His healing presence and trust Him to fix it…

Neck Deep In Disobedience


So needy for grace today? So needy for just some assurance that it’s ok and it’s alright and nothing will touch you that isn’t God filtered and God ordered and God ordained? Yeah, we’ve all been there, and we know that sometimes God allows the bad to save us from the worst of stuff. Ponder Jonah the Prophet and his story of rebellion against a God, who had given specific orders. Think of the stench he was allowed to be swallowed up into in order to survive the wild storm on the sea ~ all because of his rebel spirit. Yeah, for sure, one would really wonder what the worst of the two evils really was? The belly of the fish threatening to digest or the wicked waves that threatened to pull him under for the last time? Ahhh, but His sovereign God knew and because he wanted his attention, He orchestrated it all and in Jonah’s disobedience he had to struggle with not only himself and his bad attitude, his precarious situation and his hardened heart but his neck-deep consequences of sheer rebellion. He kept getting in deeper! His ‘On The Run” caught up with him at God’s command and yet, in God’s mercy and grace, his pit of despair became his transport to safety. Oh, yeah, we may find ourselves in neck- deep in the thick of bad choices and we may find ourselves being swallowed by unpleasant surroundings, but we can always be sure, God has His eye on us and He cares, oh yes, he cares and even in the pit, He’s got you and He desires nothing more than your undivided attention. Jonah couldn’t escape or get away from God or disobey Him without consequence, but he never found himself beyond the reach of God’s grace. Nor do we, not even for a moment in our journey. So ~ On the brink of drowning Jonah prayed for help, for life, and for God’s presence to be renewed in his life and God heard! He rescued him and used him in spite of his hardened heart and his anger.
Know today, that God doesn’t need perfection but just a willingness to be obedient. He desires to snatch you from the jaws of death and pit of despair where you find yourself today. Let Him come to your rescue and be your salvation, and just as He managed Jonah’s situation let Him manage yours!

“I sank beneath the waves and waters closed over me. Seaweed wrapped itself around my head and I sank down to the very roots of the mountains. I was imprisoned in the earth, whose gates lock and shut forever. But you O Lord my God, snatched me from the jaws of death!”
Jonah 2: 5, 6

When You Aren’t Enough

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when what you have isn’t enough, God’s grace is. It will cover all we don’t have, and all we can’t do. It will cover all we don’t have control over, and all that seems out of whack. His favour rests upon us regardless of who we are, where we’ve been or what we’ve done. His love goes beyond the imaginable and unimaginable and reaches into the realms of the impossible to share a love so unconditional, so solid, so transforming and so incomprehensible that we sit in awe and wonder- ment of a God who can care so deeply for our needs. Yeah, even in your failure He’s there ready to lift, heal, restore and win! His mercy, so vast and so beyond where we are, and His thoughts of us so brilliant and astounding, we can never pay it back in any of our human attempts. So don’t try! In obedience, just accept His gift of favour upon your life right here, right now, and find HIs richest and joyful blessing on your beautiful soul in your needy moment of “Not enough.”
P1040109

2 Corinthians 12: 8,9,10
Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Daniel 10:19
“Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.”

Serendipitous

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So we’re facing a new day!  What’s on your plate as you anticipate the moments? One thing we can be assured of is that God’s grace will be there in those moments, even before they reach us. Reflect on the awesomeness of it as they come and don’t miss the blessing that might be tucked under some difficulty. That’s where they hide you know ~ in the hard times! Those are the places where we meet miracles head on because miracles come out of the impossible and yet we sometimes fail to see them for what they are because we’re too focused on the trouble. Sometimes we take them out of context and just call them coincidence because we don’t think about God being there. Well, He’s there in your tough places and He makes things new. What glorious hope lies in that thought! In your next moment, expect a miracle with a grateful heart and you might be surprised at the little serendipitous that dot your day!

Isaiah 43:19
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
