Eating and exercising. Living and breathing. Resting. Being set free in being the person God created you to be. It’s a new season with pumpkins and spice and all things nice, but do you feel like you’re still just in the same rut, going around in the same cul-de-sac of stupidity but have this sense of just freedom but can’t seem to break through to it? You’re not alone! I’m right there with you! How about we gather round the table and/ or go for a walk together and grow stronger and break free together..to be strong and beautiful….all the while pulling on God. He’s that spark you can see! Come on over and let’s have some Pumpkin Bread together!
Do you ever feel like you’re going somewhere, but then really you don’t feel like it at all? You just want the day to end? Or you think haven’t I struggled with this enough (whatever your ‘this’ is).
Isn’t it frustrating? I’ve been feeling that way lately. I just haven’t felt good, and frustrated with that – think maybe it’s just in my head and the enemy is just attacking me. Well it’s not in my head but the enemy won’t leave me alone but I keep clinging to Jesus even though I’m frustrated because I know my God is bigger and fighting for me! It might be another day, same story, God’s Bigger!
Let’s have some Yummie Poundcake and share life around the table as we trust Him….are you ready to laugh and feel strong? I am!!
I’ve made a lot of changes around myself, like moving to Alaska and working, and now living in California working. But is this where I am supposed to be or is it time to go home? I love being closer to my sister, but I don’t know if this is where I am supposed to be. Maybe God brought me to Alaska and to California to show me that who I am and where I’m supposed to be, where I am going is just in His arms, trusting Him and believing that I am a beautiful daughter of the King. I keep striving to do do, be better, be gooder, heal better, think better, feel better. I keep trying to change everything when all He wants me to do is rest and trust and ‘be anxious for nothing’. It’s so much easier said than done, though, but with the Lord’s help I can do it!
“When the journey you are on feels overwhelming, the very best thing you can do is cling to Jesus.” (Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence, pg. 339)
God’s thoughts and ways are WAY BIGGER than my thoughts and ways and I gotta remember that and trust Him, but it’s so freaking hard, especially when I feel like I might be going somewhere but then the enemy tries to keep me back and way me down and put negative thoughts in my head and body! Telling me I’m a failure because I ate ‘that’ or I didn’t do this or I’m leaving before I thought I would or told people I would, or I don’t what it takes to be a mom and a wife to good strong Godly Man. NO more!
I think, too, I keep worrying about what other people will think of me for leaving sooner than orginally thought, not having the most perfect right job, when all I need to worry about is what God thinks about me and trust Him.
“So do not fear for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

So, I’ve been wanting to make a cake…a light and fluffy, pretty white cake and just have fun. Haha, well I did actually have fun, but the cake didn’t turn out as pretty as I was hoping and although the layers are thick and beautiful it wasn’t as light and fluffy as I was hoping for. But, you know, I really enjoyed making it and this year is a year of celebrating and taking risks (more on that to come!:), so I call it my Leaning Tower of Celebration.
I don’t know about you but I hate (okay that’s pretty strong, but I do!) that saying ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but words never hurt me.’ As if!! Words can be the most damaging to any mind, body, heart and spirit! Words you speak to others, about others or especially words you speak to yourself, about yourself are very damaging. Yourself listens, so speak kindly – ‘Pleasant words are like a honeycomb-Sweet to the soul and Healing to the bones!‘ (Proverbs 16:24) and treat yourself and someone else to Summie’s Yummies Cakies!:)
