Are You Ready for It?

When I write, I try to give the most accurate view of what’s happening in my heart in that given moment. I mean… That is the goal of this blog. To stay as vulnerable as possible with the ups and downs of my life as I follow Father God, Jesus and Holy Spirit’s lead.

So today… Well today my heart as been focused on how grateful I am for 2020.

And I know a lot of people might disagree; however, this year has been a good one because my strength to withstand the waves is found in Him.

You see the past 7 years of my life have felt like a constant and at times violent push from God. He’s single handily walked me up and down mountains and valleys of life and into a place where I can’t rely on anything but Him for everything. Which means my life, my family, my career, my ministry, my finances, my entire world has landed in His hands for protection and provision.

He’s actually allowed the past 7 years to become a place where the waves of life have knocked me down, drug me under and forced me to learn how to get up and stand firm and strong in the face of death, darkness, turmoil, chaos, adversity and division.

And because of this… Because of His training, molding and refinement… Well I’ve been able to truly and heart-fully say, “God is at my right hand. I will not be shaken or fear anything dark that comes into my spiritual realm and dimension of space and time.”

Because you see I believe the shaking and transition that’s happening is good. I believe, beneath all of the politics and opinions, God has a plan to bring repentance, restoration and healing to our broken nation and world. And as people begin to wake up and focus their attention on Him… Not on political parties, disasters that have overtaken us or arguments that divide us… I believe we will begin to truly see a new world that reveals the Kingdom of God and the glory of His Kingdom on this earth.

And so… The question is, “Are you ready for it?!”đŸŒ± #cultivatelife

Change the World….

Over the last few months or so… Well I’ve basically accepted that California is home… For now at least… And as much as I miss my family… Well I love the life I am living out here so much….

But I find myself wondering what this is all about… Because a lot of the time it makes sense… But then there are moments when I think “none of this makes sense at all”…

And that’s when I get overwhelmed… Because I start worrying some… Am I doing life the best way possible for me?…

Of course then I have to remind myself that as long as I’m genuinely happy life will keep moving forward… I believe it will continue to evolve into something better than I can hope for or imagine…

But I have my moments… And I’m having one now…

And it’s mostly due to the amount of “free time” I have… The family I work for is on vacation until August… And so I don’t know what to do with myself…

But I guess this is really a time for me to just breathe… To breathe and relax some and remind myself why I have chosen to keep doing the job I’m doing right now…

And when I’m honest with myself… Well I find myself grateful for the truth that we are all capable of changing our own worlds…

Growing up I was taught I was a world changer… My religion and schooling told me that every day….

Now looking back… Well I see that it is a lie as much as it’s the truth…

No… I will never change the actual world… But every day… Well we all change our personal little world… Through our actions, the world is made a better or worse place to live in…

And I guess in so many ways I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with kids right now… And show them how to change their worlds… Just in changing their situations… Just by choosing to forgive and love and be kind…

And I guess in this moment… Well that’s enough for me to just relax and be…
