Smack Dab In The Middle

So the thing is this, what to do when inner self finds inner self smack-dab in the middle of where you don’t want to be? Right in the middle of hard places and no, you didn’t even choose it with bad choices, but it seems standing up for the good, and for the right placed you right there in the wrong. Where do you go with that? Where do you go when smack-dab in the middle of wrong is really the right place but the oh so difficult place for you to be? Mom, sometimes it’s you there on the bad end of kid’s choices, when standing up for the truth, puts you in the bad books! Worker, teacher, whoever you are sitting there in the wrong because of the right, you fill in the blanks of your life here in this uncomfortable place to be and beautiful soul, if it’s your spot for now, you gotta know, It’s the corner where our Lord refreshes, comforts, soothes and eases the tension and the pressure. It’s where He whispers out from under the weight of His cross and then shouts through the victory of the empty tomb, through the vastness of His love, grace and mercy, and in His own way, customized just for us, He reminds us to let Him take it. So you and I and we and us, Let’s let Him be all that we need for this. Allow Him to take it, manage it and perfect it. He’s got it so don’t fret your beautiful soul with its shenanigans and yeah, the thing is, in the big picture, remember the right side of the cross was so wrong in the hands of the angry mobs, but yet so perfect and so needed for the Father’s perfected work in the world and for the world.

Our Saviour who knew no sin, no wrong, yet suffered in its grip all for our sake, knew the hard place in life. He lived the right! He lived the Truth and took the beating and He took the wrong. So, you there, right there where you don’t want to be ~ when standing for the right and the good places you in the wrong don’t forget about the cross of Christ.

Yeah, He had the cross! He took the cross! He suffered the cross and all the stuff that went with it, and our Lord has this hard place for you and He’s perfecting that which concerns you. It takes time, because He does it so right and so well and so perfect and so timely, so let Him be all that for you for now. Let Him be that sweet peace and glorious rejuvenation in your tough corner for now. The Apostle Paul knew of His perfected and ongoing work in his own life when he penned the words in Philippians 1: 6, “For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your loving-kindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.”
Psalm 138: 7, 8

“Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.”
1 Thessalonians 5:24

God’s Peace Gift


God’s peace is His extravagant gift and our sweet blessing! To experience it is to experience a calm, serene mind and joyful heart in the face of adversity and as His children, it’s our right and our authority to step into it and claim it. Peace is our victory in the difficult, our stability in the storm, our hope against the thick walls of impossible and our hug from God that all is well. Peace in our heart and soul will ward off the enemy quicker than any other weapon of warfare, simply because it takes the pressure off of fear. It removes our desire to control, to fight, to worry, to counter attack and get the last word. Peace is a peaceful mind even in the hard places. It allows grace to all ~ to either change or not to change! Peace takes our hands off the control and allows our Sovereign God to reign and manage and heal and repair. He does the work and we just step into His peace while He does it. Peace ~ such a blessing, and such a gift. Beautiful soul, step into it and walk in it as we progress along in this new year.

Your Story?

DSC_1429
So how’s your story shaped up this week? You knew it was coming and sort of dreaded the unknowns of what you knew would happen. It’s okay isn’t it? It came and it went and you’re still here in real time and in real life and you have so much to be thankful for. You’re Still in one piece although there were moments you wondered about! Good for you! It wasn’t you though it was just that awesome grace that God gives so generously to His creation and created things. Yeah, He graced us this week and led us through those unknowns. It wasn’t a problem for Him. He knew the unknowns in the path and managed them ahead of us. That’s just what He does. I love how He does it?

It’s those unknowns isn’t it? Those little things that catch in the apprehensive corners of our minds and take us off guard. They send us reeling off track and out of control when our fears get hung up on mistrust and doubt leading us into anxieties that should never arise. There’s so much happening in the world and so much crazy happening in our world with stuff out of our control. Anxious thoughts creep in and frazzle our hearts and minds, leaving us weak and rendering us useless. We forget that our power is not in ourselves and our control of the situation! Oh how quickly we forget, in our humanness and insecurity that it’s our sovereign God who is faithful to see us through the hard places. To grace us and make a way for us to face the day of unknowns.

In Psalm 94: 18, 19, the psalmist’s experience of slipping, contrasts with God’s promise to stand with him. “I cried out, “I am slipping!’ But your unfailing love, O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” God stands by His own and He’s so faithful all the time. He calls us to be strong and courageous even in the difficult and the unknowns of this life. His words to Joshua in 1:9, He says to us today right were we are ~

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Trust Him beautiful soul and find peace. He won’t let you go! The battles you face, you won’t face alone. His mercies are new every morning. Let Him open them up and disperse them into the precious moments of your day. ~k

Tough Stuff


So life has thrown some pretty tough stuff at you lately and it’s not fun and it’s not easy, but we’re not here for easy. Yeah, ‘tough” has been thrown at us all in one form or another ~ Maybe many times over but this time it’s over the top and it seems like the way out has gone south on a one way ticket and doesn’t have any inkling to return. It’s left you high and dry and fried, but not “over easy.” Easy was never promised to follow us through this journey but God has promised us joy in spite of… and even though we must walk through the hard places we can experience an unexplained joy in the midst of the tough. The same LORD who spoke words of promise to Isaiah in 43: 1,2 speaks over us today when He says..
“But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.”

So you see He knows your name and if you are His, those rough waters that threaten to pull you under and those high rivers and hot fires that threaten to drown and scorch, can’t drown nor scorch! No, beautiful soul, they can’t even touch us when we let our sovereign Lord carry us over! He sees, He knows, He cares. He’s a God of compassion, and mercy and grace and although He’s allowed some hard places, He hasn’t left you alone. What a blessed thought and a comfort of promise for the road today that you must travel. Tuck it into your heart for recall to refresh that beautiful, tired soul of yours in the early hours of the morning and in the late hours of the night. Ah yes, His grace will meet you right there and His protection will cover you and keep you when you are His and He is yours.

Deuteronomy 31:8
“The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
