Winds of Change


I apologize if this entry isn't all that long. I'm not feeing well, but I feel the urge to tell somebody to "hold on." I was taught in school that life and times are like a pendulum; that even though it seems things are only ever going to swing one way-and it seems that way is usually against us- that they have to turn like the tides and swing the other way in our favor. I am SO living this right now.

I prayed months ago for God to reveal my purpose to me- to show me the bigger picture of my life and i believe it's beginning to take shape. As I've written words to these posts and posts for other wonderful sites and bloggers...my heart has begun to shift and change. I can still have a temper and a low tolerance for stupid,lol, but I feel more mellow. I am facing in the coming months major oral surgery to yank my wisdom teeth,remove 3 baby teeth that never came out,braces and the pulling down of impacted adult teeth. I fear sedation,pain,looking ridiculous at 30 and the overwhelming financial hardship this is going to put on us.

But my God is bigger and He loves me.

I'm also feeling it's time for us to move again; we've outgrown this house and prayed for a year now about what to do. I need my mother and my husband and I desperately need a night or 2 out alone..we haven't had one in years.We are barely making it as it is and from the viewpoint of a 3rd party all we can do about this is dream. 

I say I can pray.

I have a home picked out just 10 minutes from Grammie, 2 hours from here.... and prayed over it...now it's a matter of God getting us in there. Or wherever He wants us is fine with me. 

I would never ever EVER make this blog monetized. It is my ministry and it blesses me to bless others. But after having just a feeling (and I'm beginning to know these feelings and follow them) I put a donation button on my other blog           (8 Years of Growth) all the way at the bottom of the page. If people feel led to bless us it can be done there; it is secure and is attached to Paypal. But I don't expect it,I don't ask for it...but in the off chance it leads to my prayers being answered i humbly thank all who have a hand in blessing us in advance. 10% of all donations will always be tithed, by the way. I will continue to write the words God drops in my spirit here and if you believe the words "hold on" were meant for you..please don't fight them. God's got you. I've come to learn when God requires you to jump off a cliff, He either catches you or gives you wings to fly----but he will never let you fall.

Isaiah 40:31 

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
