Um...Hi :)



Where to start except at hello. :)
I started this blog years ago, because I like to write, and I wanted to use my gift to shed some light, even if it's flame barely flickered like a lone candle in the wind. Yet this blog evolved and is evolving into something more. I've always tried to keep it maybe a little impersonal, yet super personal at the same time if that makes sense...impersonal by not really talking about myself, yet super personal by sharing my poems which are the most intimate parts of me, if one knows how to read between the lines.
This blog has shared in my journey, the journey of a girl born in an island in the middle of the sea colliding with her destiny in a major way. Jesus...He is my purpose, my reason for living, my comforter, my friend. It only takes one name, to make all the difference. Yet, what a difference He makes. He enters your world and shakes all that can be shaken, until all that's left is what's solid, and what's real, and oh how He loves.

As I've seen God’s hand, His help, His grace through my adversities I've learned what love really is, by seeing His love in action. It’s the true definition of love : sacrificial love. Loving someone so much that you put their needs, their desires, their wants above your own….even to your own detriment, and that is how He loves us. Each and everyone of us. There is no doubt in my mind…so trouble may come, but He is not in the whirlwind, not in the fire, not in the earthquake that rocks your world….no He is the still small voice, residing in that quiet place in your soul, when you are alone and everyone you thought would always be there  has left, He stands and waits and reminds you : “My child you are in My grip, through the ebbs and flows of life, the strong winds that test your faith, the quakes that shake your world. I keep you from crumbling. I have never left, and in fact I never will. You can let go now, you are safe with me.” This is love...just waiting to collide.

The Heart of God

It's not hard to find the heart of God, it's nestled in the very words of scripture, painted across the night sky,  can be seen in the faces of your children, and even in the twinkle in the eye of strangers as they pass by. You see love is not just what God does, love is who God is.

'Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.' 1 John 4:8 ESV
Yes friends God is love, and oh how He loves us. Before the foundations of the Earth were laid you were in His thoughts.

'even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love'
Ephesians 1:4 ESV

He numbers every strand of your hair, wrote your name across his palm, collects every tear you've ever shed, and His thoughts towards you are for good and not evil. This is true love, not that we loved Him, but that He first loved us, and calls us to Him with loving kindness.

'In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved…

Garment of Praise

Praise is a weapon, and it’s so important that we learn to use it appropriately. We all have challenging days, and it’s those very times that we need to cling to Jesus. The Bible tells us that God inhabits our praise; Inhabit  is defined as: ‘to exist or be situated within; dwell in’
I don’t know about you, but when I encounter difficulties or trials, there is nothing better than knowing that God is in the midst of it with me; moving and working on my behalf. I’m not going to say that my flesh doesn’t fight against this, and that there aren’t times when I want to ‘clap back’ as they say...after all they deserve it right? You hurt me, so I hurt you? It’s the way of the world after all, and we have so many sayings that attest to this...that speak of revenge, and payback...but God doesn’t agree with the things of this world.
 Psalm 22:3 KJV 3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Something starts to happen when I begin to praise God for who He is, and not just…

Hard Days

Some days are just plain hard. Not just difficult, or challenging, but hard. David is one of my favorite characters in the Bible, not just because he wrote many beautiful psalms, but because he knew a thing or two about hard days. 1 Samuel, Chapter 30 speaks about one such day that David had. He and his men had just returned from battle to discover that their wives, children, and property had all been stolen. Yes everything they had that made life worth living, gone in the blink of an eye. Who knows when the last time was that they had seen their loved ones...days, weeks, maybe even months prior. The Bible goes on to tell us that the men were so overcome with grief that they even wanted to stone David. After all they had to blame someone right? And if it wasn't for David leading them to war, they could have been around to protect their families. Now here comes the strange part...with all the tumult going on around him, and his own grief of having his family stolen, David encourage…
