God’s Bigger

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

If anything ‘I am a child of God.’  That is a new song we have been singing, or belting out, at church.  It’s so freeing and refreshing and mind renewing to just be reminded that I, and you, are children of the King most high (so we are Royal!) and that we have a good good father who calls us beloved, beautiful, abundantly free!

For some, the word father can mean something bad and just rub you the wrong way.  You are not alone, but know this- the word Father is a good word and you ‘are loved by Him, that’s who you are, that’s who you are!’

Gooey Pumpkin Sticky Pudding

As you have probably guessed I’m excited about fall because of football, the change in weather, Thanksgiving, watching ‘The Blind Side‘ and filling the house with spicy sweet aromas of ginger and pumpkin!  I love it when restaurants like paneras or coffee shops like Starbucks announce that ‘Pumpkin is back!’  It’s like there is newness in the air, a start of a fresh beginning because of the refreshing crispness that comes with a cool fall morning.  The exciting anticipation of gathering with friends as you cheer on your football team, while cozying up in your comfy cute jeans and styling long sleeve shirt sharing some kind of warm and cozy, spicy-sweet pumpkin treat.
