I Will Walk in Healing

1986, devil tried to kill me before I was born. When I was born he killed me but Jesus brought breath back into my body all five times the devil tried to take It away.

 Skip to 2010-2018 the devil has fought me in ways I never dreamed, he tried to take me out. Tried to end my life. Tried to knock me down. Tried to defeat me. He caused anger, depression, hurt, guilt, sadness, shame, heartache, fear and pain. But I am here October 6th, 2018 to tell the devil and anyone else listening, the devil lost!!! 

Jesus is the boss. He is my Savior. Jesus is my provider. Jesus is my forgiver. Jesus is my grace. Jesus is my peace. Jesus is my joy. Jesus is my God. Jesus is my King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus set me free. Jesus gave me victory. What the devil meant for evil Jesus turned into a testimony of His love and grace. 

The devil started the battle but the battle is over, the war is over. I claim it in Jesus name. I have the victory through my Jesus. I am set free. I am forgiven. I am a child of God. Jesus won the war inside of me and from this day forward I choose to walk in healing and Victory because I Am A child of God!  I may not see it completely, but I know it’s there and I see healing everyday. 

Extra Heart Beats, Panic and Anxiety 

My heart is beating out of rhythm 

They call it PVC’s

I know that God is with me

With every extra beat

My heart beats faster throwing in extra beats, then it pauses to catch up and start again.

Panic does not help it though it causes me to panic. My heart fills with anxiety. I have to take anxiety meds to calm me down so I don’t throw anymore extra heart beats then what I already am.

It isn’t serious. I won’t have a heart attack or die from this, but the mind games the devil tries to play on me is hard to ignore so I plead the blood of Jesus and the devil plays his games no more.

My nerves are slowly calming down. Anxiety is beginning to cease. Panic is decreasing. I feel a gentle peace as my heart stops throwing an extra beat. I feel Gods love and comfort. I will rest in Him knowing He gave me relief.

Paddy Anne's First Trip to the Vet Since I Brought Her Home

I brought Paddy Anne home in June and not long after my Mama and I took her and my dog Bama to the Vet. Paddy Anne needed her second round of puppy shots and a checkup and Bama needed his yearly shots and checkup.   Both of my puppies did very good.

On our way to the Vet, Mama and I stopped by McDonalds. I do not remember what I got to eat, but I know I got a Caramel Mocha Macchiato. Those are so good!  You can buy a carton of it at the store too.

 I enjoy taking pictures when I am riding in the car. Okay, I admit I enjoy taking pictures anytime.
 Bama enjoys looking out the window on car rides. 

There is a neat story that goes with this necklace.  Years ago I bought the cameo and made the necklace. I was going to sell it in my Etsy shop but instead I decided to keep it for myself. I had wanted a yorkie for a very long time.  Then I found out about Morkies, and I wanted either a Yorkie or a Morkie. God blessed me with a puppy Morkie. A morkie is part yorkie and part maltese.  Paddy Anne was named Honey Blossom by her owners, and when I got her at six weeks I changed her name a little later.

I thank God for blessing me with Bama, Paddy Anne and my horses, Shiloh, Takoda, and Sundance. What about Sunshine and Dixie Robyn, and who is Sundance you might ask? Come back for another blog post and I will tell you!

What to Blog About

Do you ever want to blog but you are not sure what to blog about so you don't? Or you have a lot of ideas for blogging and when you sit down to blog one of the idea you think to yourself "No, not now?" And then there are times when you want to blog, like now and I have no idea where I am going with this.

I miss blogging when words seemed to flow like water and I almost always had something to blog about that I felt was good content, or important. 

Life this year has been nothing like I expected or planned. There have been a lot of bad but a lot of good as well.

I am looking forward to decorating for Christmas this year.  We had a front and back porch built during the summer. I am going to have fun decorating the front porch.  I am not sure I will decorate the back porch. People will see the front porch faster.

The Dollar Tree and Dollar General have some great decorations this year, so does Walmart and there are three outdoor decorations I saw at a Lowes that I want to order or go back to the store and buy for our front yard.

My Parents don't mind if I decorate the house.  I am glad, because I enjoy decorating.

I have some DIY Christmas projects that I want to work on and finish in time for Christmas. One DIY project is for the outdoors.  Actually two, I want to find some pool noodles on clearance before they are gone in the stores.  I found some tutorials on outdoor decorations using pool noodles, I want to make them.

I plan on making videos for my YouTube channel of almost if not all of the DIY Christmas projects I do this year.

Do y'all like to decorate for Christmas? Are y'all looking forward to Christmas?   I would love to hear from you in the comments section.  I will reply!

I am back to not knowing what to blog about, so I will end this blog post! 

Have a great night.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

A View Through My Eyes: Week 31

 Earlier this year my Mama bought me a bouquet of flowers, they were a mixture of Chocolate Roses and Yellow Carnations. They were so pretty I took pictures of them and wanted to share them with you!  Enjoy! God creates beautiful flowers!

Home Improvements

It's a beautiful, sunny and warm day here in South Alabama. I am outside on one of our porches sitting in our wooden glider enjoying the day.

My dog Bama is laying on the floor in front of me watching the birds, and anything else he sees.  My dog Paddy Anne is walking around on the porch exploring.

In the background I hear hammering from inside my house. We are remodeling our living room. My Daddy and two other men who are family members are working to tear down the walls so they can put new sheet rock on the walls.  The front door frame is being made wider for a larger door.  One wall in the living room is going to be made four feet longer for more wall room.  I believe they are going to make my parents bedroom door frame larger for a larger door.

Last week the men pulled up the carpet in our living room and put down beautiful pine flooring. After the walls are finished they will coat it with pretty sealant and polyurethane to make the floors beautiful.  

Once the living room is finished the pine floor will be put in the kitchen and the adjoining dinning room. 

A lot of remodeling is taking place and will be taking place over the next few weeks, I will update more as it takes place.  Our kitchen will be remodeled, so will my bedroom and bathroom along with some other changes. I am excited.

I enjoy hearing everyone chattering and telling stories from when they were younger as they work in the living room.  Its a peaceful sound.

Paddy Anne is watching me, this is the first time she has seen me with my laptop outside.  She is a curious puppy.

Even though it is hot, I can feel Autumn in the air.

Thank you Jesus for Your peace that passes all understanding.

When Things Don't Happen As Soon As You Plan

 I know this title is similar to my previous  blog post, but these are thoughts that have been on my mind lately.

When things do not happen as soon as we plan we often get impatient and stressed out. Let me make this blog post personal. 

When things do not happen as soon as I plan i get impatient and stressed out. I question God even though I know His timing is perfect. 

I wanted to be married by now with children.  I'm single.

I wanted to have a book published, at least one by this age. Where do I start?

I wanted to still be singing in Churches and at Festivals and Events. When I was a teenager singing from place to place I dreamed that by the time I was the age I am now I would have my own tour bus, a record deal, a booking agent. I would have CD's out, sing with the Gaither Homecoming Friends, tour with my favorites in Southern Gospel and Contemporary Gospel.

I wanted to star in Christian movies.  I wanted to star in Hallmark movies. How do I even begin to audition for movies?

I wanted, I wanted, I wanted, I still want.  I dream of all of the above happening. I know one day each one of those desires will take place.  I know that dreams I have not discussed in this blog post will happen as well. 

The clincher, the part we, the part I don't like very well, that is trusting God.  O, I love God. I know His plans are far greater than my plans. I know He put these desires in my heart. I know His timing is perfect. But, how many times have I fretted asking God why my timing couldn't be His timing? Truth is  it can be, but in a reverse sense. I want God to be on my time schedule. Instead He wants my timing to be His time schedule.

So I am going to trust God.  I am going to pray and listen for His guidance. I am going to do what I can to be prepared for when the time comes for my desires to be granted.

I am going to work to become a better woman. A woman who loves God even more then I already do. A woman who allows God to prepare my heart and mind, my emotions, everything He needs to work on, so when He does give me my Mr. Right I will be ready. Sure we will grow together, but I have growing to do while I am single.

I will continue uploading YouTube videos of me singing, and singing live on Facebook when God prompts me too. I will sing, sing, sing. Sing in the shower, sing outside, sing while I'm working, sing in the vehicle. Sing to the birds, the bee's, my dogs, my horses. Sing to my God whose timing is perfect.  I will practice my piano until it becomes second nature and then keep on playing.

I will continue making YouTube videos so I will be comfortable in front of a camera when the day comes that I get to act in a Christian movie and in a Hallmark movie.

I will write. I will blog. I will write poems, thoughts, whatever comes to mind that I feel I need to write I will write, and when God tells me it is time to begin writing my first book to be published, I will listen and I will obey.

Bottom line.  I will trust in my God who has never failed me and never will.  

When things don't happen as soon as I plan, what should I do?  Here is the answer,

Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct my paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

When Things Don't Go Your Way

What do you do when things don't go your way. When things don't go as you planned?  When life throws your a curve ball. When you keep striking out and getting benched. We have all been there.

We make our plans and layout our plans step by step only to see them crumble.

My traumatic brain injury wasn't in my plan, everything that went with the brain injury wasn't in my plan.  Have health issues relapses was not in my plan. The man I thought was the one being with someone else wasn't in my plan. Hoping to be married with a family by now was in my plan, but I am not, being single at thirty-one was not in my plan.

So many things in life do not go as you plan. I could list so much more, but I won't. You get the general idea.  We don't always get our way.   Sometimes our plans are not God's plans for our lives.  We will hurt, we will go through trials and tribulations, we will have unhappy times, but we will also experience joy, peace, blessings, and happiness while wrapped in the sweet, comforting love of Jesus.

No matter what is not going through way. No matter what is not going my way, I can rest assure God has me. His plans and ways are perfect. He has ordained my steps and calls me to walk with Him. To hold His hand and trust His plans. His heart is pure, His thoughts towards me are thoughts of good and not of evil.

No matter the challenges we face, rest assure the God gives us hope found in His Word, the Bible, His love letter to us.

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." Jeremiah 1:5

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well." Psalm 139:14

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God to them who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 

Trust God. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Remember no matter how it feels like you cannot continue, you can by relying on the strength of Jesus.   "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 

Things won't always go our way, but to live a life worth living, to live our best life that God intended, we must trust His plans. Trust His purpose, Trust His heart. God loves us and only wants what is best for His children. Don't fret, don't fear, God is with you. Take His hand and let Him lead you into His ways which are perfect beyond anything we can imagine. 

Yes there will be hard times but Jesus said He is with us always. 

"Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:20
