Freedom’s Eve….

~Freedom’s Eve~  Freedom comes in increments and measures, inch by inch and no matter what the freedom means in real terms to you, the only way it will come in entirety is firstly in our mind, and then in our will, it may come in our emotions later on… I have experienced freedom in so many ways in my life but as time goes on I learn that there are more areas within me that need to be freed, and even the areas I am more than aware of are still yet to find that place of true freedom. Life is an untangling of ourselves and with each loosened knot comes a little more freedom and space. I am thankful for God that He has brought me the most freedom into my life, and each day I trust him and follow His ways it comes in increasing measures. I realise that I…

Advance, Retreat, Advance…

So I have been on a little retreat, it doesn’t always turn our exactly has you have planned but I love how it did turn out. I planned to write a lot but instead took a lot of photos. It was so nice to just be away from all the normal things you have to do and today this little retreat come to an end… So in a few hours I will venture back into suburbia from the little piece of heaven in which I have been into the life race that I am in. I haven’t come up with too many ideas of how I could transform my life to resemble even slightly what life is like up here in the country. It would involve not doing a lot of things in which I have no choice but to do… So I need to find the places of solace in…

Known…

O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off. You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have beset me and shut me in–behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it. ~Psalm 139:1-6~ Known… Oh I am so relieved that there is one who KNOWS me! One thing that I always long for is to be understood and for people to know me. When they don’t in the past it has troubled me but now I understand that this is not always to be…

But!????

“I do want to do that…. But…” “I do like them… But…”… “I don’t want to buy that… But…” “I want them to come over… But…” For some reason or another sometimes we add a but to our statements and answers… I was telling my friend about something that I wanted… but… So we started thinking about the ‘buts’ that punctuate our conversations. She used this example: Why invite somebody when you don’t really want them to come…… But, we say to ourselves ‘it’s the right thing to do’, but really it’s for the wrong reasons!! Everything we do has a motive and we need to check that motive where it’s coming from….our heart or our head! We can still feel wrong but if our heart’s motive is right and we know it’s the right thing to do in God‘s eyes then God will change our feelings to line up.…

No time like the Present…

God is beginning to deal with you in certain areas of your life then some things will start coming out into the light and it’s probably not going to be pleasant…. We know that the pain of staying where we are is much worse than the pain of going through. When you are not prepared to work through these things it makes it hard to cope with today…. You can’t cope with today if you haven’t dealt with yesterday! The yesterday’s catch up on you. If this is where you are at it may be very difficult right now but remember the people closest around you don’t necessarily know what is happening… And it can be hard but God can give the grace to make it through in the best way. When you are avoiding your yesterday’s then you are not able to cope with today in the best way…

What Gift Can You Give?…

Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons. ~Ruth Ann Schabacker~ It’s quite amazing to look around me and see the varying gifts that I believe God has given to people and see how He is using them and their gifts. We all have our purpose no matter how big or small we see that it is, it fits into the bigger scheme of things and it is a part of a building block of our world. I have been seeing how each one of our gifts fits into the bigger picture that God has for this world and we all need to play our part in whatever big or  little way it is! My friend plays the piano, she has played since she was little girl, there was a period in her life where she played all the time and many people got to hear her and…
