When it Clicks

Today was NOT one of those days.

You know, the days when the light is on and no one is home.

Today was a day it clicked!!  The light was on and I was home!!!

While doing my devotions this morning,
           I was to read the complete chapter of Romans 8
Now, I have read this chapter many times,

             but a particular truth did not click.

One of the verses used was Romans 8:28
This is a very familiar verse and one I hold to all the time.

Yet, there are many days, I do not see the good.

Life can be dark and confusing, and no good can be seen.
It is then I realize I know the maker of good, 

        And it is His promises I hold to.

One of the promises I cling to, is the Spirit, Himself, will

intercede before my Heavenly Father for me.

When I become so discouraged,
so broken,

or my heart is so hurt,

to the point where I feel as if I

cannot find
the words to pray,
the Spirit is praying for me.


And Yes, I have found myself at this place many times.

Where the only thing I could do was shed my tears, and know the Spirit was praying.......

 For what I could not even think of  the Spirit knew. 
NOW!!!  The LIGHT BULB  moment……….

This promise is found in Romans 8:26 and 27!!!!   

These verses precede “WE KNOW that all things work
Together for the good of those who love God: those who are called

according to His purpose.

We can KNOW that it will all work for God’s Good if we just

allow the Spirit to do what God directed Him to do,

and God to do what God promised He would do.

AND!!!  all of this happens when we are our most broken.....

Remember,  it is not what we SEE,  it is what we KNOW

                 and who we KNOW. 

God is the God of my circumstances
Love you all,

When All is Silent

There have been many stages and times in my life
I have felt silence.
Not that there wasn't craziness or noise around me,
but the voice of peace, love and grace seemed to be silent.
I know.....
I have the answers.....
I know the verses.....
I can even tell others....
but I wasn't feeling what I was teaching........
And then.....
I began to see God's fingerprints.....
His message to me......
the Creator of World was speaking
and reminding me that He
keeps His Promises.
The silence was my hurt...
He spoke, but I was not hearing.
But I was not, am not, and will not ever be alone.
I need to trust what I know
not what I feel.
