This evening I was downstairs in my office, I began singing praises to the Lord. As I was standing there, I looked down and noticed that my feet were slightly pointing a little to the outside. It’s nothing that you would notice at a glance, but I decided to adjust them and point them straight forward . When I did this, my calves hurt. I found it odd, that just by a slight adjustment to the way my feet were pointing, it caused my calves to hurt. As I was thinking about this, I heard the Lord say, “Just as you did not notice that your feet were not perfectly aligned, and you made the adjustment, I am realigning My church. For My church does not recognize that there is adjustments that need to take place in order for them to go in the direction that I Am moving. Even as you began to feel a slight pain as you adjusted your feet, my church will feel as though it is in pain. However, as the realignment happens in the body, the healing will begin to take place causing a new reformation to come forth in this Land.”
“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness [right standing with God and a lifestyle and attitude that seeks conformity to God’s will and purpose].”
HEBREWS 12:11 AMP
Even though you know death is approaching, nothing ever can prepare you for when it comes. I am thankful for the peace and love of God during these times.
On August 7, we lost a great matriarch of our family, Verna Lee Edwards, my granny. I have always known that I come from a strong line of women, and these past two weeks have proven it to me in an even greater way. If you read Proverbs 31:10-31, you will see a glimpse of what kind of woman my granny was like. She was all of that, and so much more to me. There is nothing I could write that could describe how I am feeling right now, and how much she will be missed by all of us. It gives me great comfort knowing that she is gazing upon the beauty of the Lord right now and feeling no pain, and enjoying her eternal life with Papa, in the Kingdom of God.
You have left a great legacy in our family, Granny. I can hear our Father say, "Well done, good and faithful servant," as He places a crown upon your head. I love you forever and always.
"God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart."
This morning as I lay in bed trying so hard to go back to sleep, (because I know I need it) all I could feel was the pain in my stomach. All I could see in my mind was a big ball of yarn in multiple colors that was knotted together with no end, and no beginning. These knots represent so many questions that are going through my mind right now. Continue reading
I often do not know how to start out any post I write, and this one is no different. Well, actually, it is different. It is different because it is about my granny. My grandmother, or "granny," as we call her, has been given days to live Continue reading
The other day as I was contemplating my struggle with choosing the right things to eat, and eating way too much sugar, I started talking to God about it…again. Only this time when I was complaining about myself to Him again, I heard something way down deep inside of me, and I decided to really listen. My conversation kinda went like this…well…. I say kinda, because I can’t promise that I remember everything word-for-word, but I do remember the most important things that were said to me.
So, yes, the fog has lifted and I have been on the upward swing of things finally. I think the doctor scared the crap out of me when she suggested I go on antidepressants if I didn’t snap out of my depressive attitude.
The last thing I want is to need a drug to help me cope with life. Don’t get me wrong. Continue reading
