Okay, so sorry that I haven't blogged in a while.  I have been moving and working and raising a 3 yr old.  Excuses, excuses I know!  Anyway,  the Lord has just been flooding me with inspirations, thoughts, and ideas.  I don't even know if I can get them all down.  But, I will try.  
I ran a 10 miler on this past sunday.  It was somewhat rough. I was tired from being on my feet the day before and I wasn't getting the right sleep, but none-the-less, I gotter done...  ha ha
While I was running I almost turned my ankle.  Scared me!  But, the Lord used that to teach me something and I thought I would share it.  It's called the slip/push.  whether we know it or not, we are all one wrong step away from slipping over the edge of this cliff we call 'life'.  All it takes is one wrong move, one phone call, one diagnosis, one wrong turn...  The question that was posed to me from God was are you ready for that?  I mean, is your hand ready to grab mine?  In other words, are your hands empty so that you can even grab ahold oh Him?  Other times, we are pushed off the cliff.  YOu know what I mean...  an affair, abuse, discrimination...  All SHOVES over the edge by someone else.  Not fair. But, I will ask the same question. Are you ready to grab ahold of God's hand?  Because, let me tell you, His hand IS ready!!!  we all need to EMPTY ourselves so that we can grab ahold of the only thing that can save us.  Money can't. Friends can't.  church can't.  Food can't.  Sex can't.  Nothing except the hand of the Father.  He is ready, are you?  love you all!

  1. Oh my...how true is your slip/push theory. I participated in a bible study a few years ago and I remember the illustration of a vase. The vase had to be full of Jesus, nothing else can complete us, hold us, love us like he can. Everything else he blesses us with is an abundance, meaning we don't truly need any of those things (house, husband, children, dog, car, etc). All we need is Him....it is hard for me to grasp that in the world we live in. Thanks for being so open and honest. I love your blog, and love you more!
