I Am a Planner Girl: The Master Planner and Me

origin_5402329418 (1)

O LORD, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.
Isaiah 25:1

I wrote this short post in 2012 as a guest contributor for 5 Minutes for Mom’s  faith based sister website 5 Minutes for Faith. I believe is still one of the the most honest and revealing posts I have ever written. It is one of those moments of observing who I am in my humanity, and who I am through the eyes of grace. When I wrote this, I wanted to show what I believed the root of the struggle was really all about for me and how I choose to continue to trust, even though I stumble, fall and fail. Because the One who upholds me in my imperfection, is Perfect, and I am free to be me…imperfectly. 

I’ve pulled it out of the archives to share again, as Planner Boot Camp approaches. I pray it blesses those who read it for the first time. I hope it gives insight into the heart of Planning with Purpose and my heart in Planner Boot Camp.

Thank you for taking the time to read. I pray it blesses you wherever you are in your own walk of faith.  More

Thoughts on Revelation and Coming to The Light in 2017

img_8376-001

Hey there friend…this may be my longest post of the year. But I hope you will grab a cup of something delicious and linger. I am sharing my wrap up thoughts on last year’s One Word, and revealing  briefly my new word for 2017.

It’s OK to read it in two parts if you like…but the way things have been going in my neck of the woods, I need to put it all out here in one post!

I appreciate you reading and commenting…

I Am Shame-Free (The Victory of Calvary)

 

We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne. Think about Jesus. He patiently endured the angry insults that sinful people were shouting at him. Think about him so that you won’t get discouraged and stop trying. (Easy-to-Read Version) *ERV @BibleGateway

Rescued From The Curse By His Grace Moment by Moment

Standing at the kitchen counter, sleep still permeating my eyes I feel for the coffee pot, prepare the pot, as I have done so many mornings. I squint adjusting to the light well aware I’m being stalked by the morning pet parade. Three sets of eyes are staring up at me. I pour dry food into the two cat bowls, grab the dog’s leash from the coat rack and head to the door with a prancing Reindeer. Once we are out into February’s chilly morning darkness and at the canine appointed place of business, I stare up at the dark blue sky over us. I gaze at the stars. Standing in the starlight, surrounded by winter’s stillness I’m startled awake as I take inventory of my heart.

When the Real Happy New Year Begins

WP_20160125_11_02_14_Pro

 

 

I noticed someone had mentioned on my  Instagram yesterday that February was the start of the New Year for her. After the January 2016 I have experienced thus far this seems like a fabulous idea. However after further consideration while driving home from dropping off my 15 year old daughter at school, the mind of Christ in me spoke up.

Does anyone get those BIG epiphanies while driving, showering, in the middle of a conversation? It’s as if God taps you on the shoulder and says, “Ahem” in that gentlemanly way He has perfected. I find He never plows me over, but the magnitude of His revelations often do.

So as I drove the short ride that the school is from our little home, I felt my mind, heart and soul light up with truth. I think my car was glowing!

Here’s what God revealed to me: More
