The Wrong Side of the Sky

20150627_072453-1I woke up this morning hoping to meet you in the sunrise but I was facing the wrong side of the sky. As I sat watching the morning begin to come alive, I noticed the birds all around me were singing and how the sunrise though behind me turned the clouds to a beautiful shade of orange in front of me.  The ocean view off in the distance then drew me in. Suddenly the thought occurred to me that if I had no singing birds,  ocean views, sunrises or sunsets you would still be here right beside me. You are all I need.

Peace in Your Strength

A Story By Me

isaiah 41;10Most of my life I have had panic attacks.  When I have a panic attack most of the time they come out of nowhere and most of the time they seem to be about nothing. At times they can be so strong they cause me to lose a grip on the reality that I am having a fear about nothing.  When a panic attack starts usually at first I will feel an overwhelming sense of doom, and then the fear will start to come in really fast eventually overwhelming me. Over the years I have learned how talk myself out of having a full blown panic attack. After Jesus came into my life they seemed to not be as severe anymore though I did still have them from time to time.

They came back pretty strong again when I woke up one morning almost 4 years ago with a bright glow in…

Through the Fog and Debris

A Story By Me

Dear Jesus,

I’m overwhelmed by the beauty you put before me this morning.

Beauty I never expected to see

As I walked past the window early this morning I happened to notice a purple colored haze caused by the sun rising over the fog covered woods in my back yard.

As the sun came up the fog began to lift and I saw the trees begin to change color before my eyes.

The woods changed from dull grey to bright shades of green, white and purple the flowers of springtime burst forth tearing away from their winter brown.

As I watched this magnificent display, the fog also began to lift away from my eyes.

Your peace began washing over me as I felt your assurance that there is never anything to fear because it is not by sight that I walk it is by faith, My faith in you.

Through…

A Story By Me

DSCN0507

Emerald water sparkles before me as white finger like waves lift up, rolling forward, lapping at the shore spreading gently over the sand.  Watching this I wonder how could I possibly have ever not believed in You?

Though I said I didn’t believe, I think I always felt your presence in the beauty and power of the ocean.  While I was refusing to see the truth You were always there right in front of me…giving me proof.  Showing me, always calling to me, comforting, bringing me peace.

Thankfully I know you now, but still every time I come here I am amazed and in awe of the beauty and the power of your presence.  I feel so small and so unworthy of the gift of something so huge.  As I gaze out across the waves to that place where the sky meets the water it looks as if they both…

Peace in the Morning

20130429_073429

In the hush of night sky a new day begins

Rays of sunlight spilling over the edge of darkness

Orange and yellow

Shining over blades of grass covered by dew glistening like glitter

Stillness, quietness, peace

Thank you for the moment when the sun comes up

Psalm 143:8    Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

Thank You For Loving Me

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for loving me.  Thank you for loving me so much that you saved me from falling.  Thank you for giving me the strength to make it through another day.  Thank you for hearing me when I cried out to you in need of  help.   Thank you for being there for me when I wanted to give up.  Thank you for staying with me when I felt all alone.  Thank you for catching my tears and taking my pain when I cried out to you… Jesus please take this.   I know without you I would never have come this far.  I know without you I would give in. Thank you for being there putting out your hand for me to grab on to.  Thank you for pulling me up out of the mouth of the pit of self destruction.  Thank you for giving me the strength to keep going on.  Thank you for the strength to keep breathing.  Thank you for breathing for me when I can’t breath on my own.  Thank you for holding on to me and never letting me go.  Thank you for loving me.

Your Faithfulness

Thank you for showing me that your love is never failing.

Thank you for showing me your faithfulness time and time again.

Thank you for the blessings of new and challenging things.

Thank you for never ceasing to amaze me.

You have taken this broken person and gradually help piece me back together again.

You have given me a whole new life.

A life with meaning.

A life with  joy.

A life with love.

Thank you for loving me.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23
