When Your Afraid

10.22.2014

When your afraid know that God is a protector.  I just happen to be listening to a new gospel song and one of the lyrics was "Don't be afraid of the terror by night, or the arrows by day" and like boom. Shannita you haven't posted a verse for the week. And then like boom, one of my favorite Psalms came to remembrance from the song. Psalms 91 is a great comfort for when your fearful.  Its a great assurance of His love and protection.

Psalms 91 (NIV)
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

Rise

10.16.2014



I rise facing my fear
I rise not letting it stop me
I rise looking at whats real
I rise looking it eye to eye
I rise in the morning with joy
I rise for God is with me
I rise and keep on rising

How Fear Moved Me

10.08.2014

I had finally landed a job in my field of study and was coming to the realization that it wasn't for me.  There was no sign of reconciliation between the man I thought I would marry and myself. At home things where out of sync. The kids where acting crazy. I felt alone with everything that I was going through.

During this time I was trying my legs as a new christian. Little did I know I was trying to walk when I should have been crawling. I went to church and I praised The Lord. I gave my ten percent and attended bible study.  But when I was tested I failed miserably, at least then in my eyes. With everything that I had going on at the time my world was crashing in on me.  I thought I had faith enough to handle it but, I became fearful. Fight or flight kicked in. What to do?



I chose flight. Not prayer. Not faith that things would get better, but flight.  All the way to Arizona.  See what I mean by fear being a catapult.  A change in environment and people may do me and the kids good, I thought.  So I planned as far as letting my family know that I was coming, and saving money so that I would have a cushion til I found a job.  When the day came I loaded up the kids and onto AZ we went. What is usually a 2-3 day trip by car took me 1 day.

We arrived safely. Arizona was a whole new world. And I can't say that life has been coming up roses every since, it still has it's thorns. And although I have no regrets about my decision to move to another state.  I'm pretty sure things would have been different if my faith was a little bit stronger then. But what I didn't know then I know now.  My faith is stronger along with my ability to face my fears instead of running and hiding.

The funny thing I've learned about life and fear, is that the things you fear and run from will continue to pop up in life until you face it and deal with. And once you've done that, that thing may continue to pop up. But you know what? Your not afraid anymore.

Verse of the Week

10.06.2014

This month I'm dealing with fear. Facing it, overcoming it, recognizing it, and the best fear to live with. Fear is a funny thing. It can paralyze you. It can catapult you. It can bring about change. Or hold you back.

I have experienced fear as I'm sure we all have in some shape or form. With this month being October (Holloween, being scared, fear) I want to address fear.  Look it straight in the face and expose it for what it really is.  So join me and til next time.

All I Want For Fall
Living in the desert dosen't call for much during the Fall and Winter months. Although it can get quit nippy. Here is my list of Fall wants.

1. A real cute bootie. I've noticed that they seem to be missing from my wardrobe.
2. Boot toppers. I like the cozy look.
3. A plaid shirt. I haven't rocked anything plaid in years.
4. Sweat shirts. This may be part of my fall sewing.
5. Knit headbands. Because my ears get cold.

What are some of your wants for Fall?

One of Those Bloggers

10.02.2014

So I only posted once last month. And was ghost for a few months before that. What can I say my blogging these days has been very inconsistent. So inconsistent that I've deemed myself "one of those bloggers" haha.

You know the ones. You know, the inconsistent ones. The ones that go on hiatus every other month, and when they return feel the need to explain why.  The ones that you hang in there with because you know they will be back eventually.  One of those.



Well what can I say. All I can do is do. And do what you ask? Do better. That's all I can do. So with the help of my hand dandy blog planner. I'm planning on doing better and not just saying I'll do better.


I'm really loving this. I can finish out the year and start over again for next. And by doing this I now have an idea of a great place to take this blog. It won't just be about me. Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

So the saga continues, and I want to thank you all for hanging in there with me.

If you blog and would like a blog planner this is where I found the one I'm using.

New Month New Season

10.01.2014



It's a new month and a new season. A great time for change.
 
I love fall. Fall is all about change. The leaves change, the weather changes, and depending on where you live the time changes.  Change, change, change.  And I welcome it. It all falls into my plan to change things up in my life. Yup, little by little, step by step, day by day. Things will be changing.
 
So this month in celebration of October I plan on doing things scared. Not letting my negative thoughts, feelings, or emotions get in the way of what I want to do.  This may sound easier said than done and your right.

Til next time,
