Forever I Will Run...Now You Have My Heart!

I could not get home quick enough from church tonight so that I could jump on this computer and write this blog. This is the first time I have such a huge urgency to write. Someone needs to read this. Someone is in need of encouragement and hope. I know it and believe it with everything within me.

In all honesty, the past couple of months have been a roller coaster. Good days, bad days. Days when I feel like I'm on top of a mountain top, and days where I dwelled in the valley. There is a song that a good friend of mine shared with me. This song for the past 3 days or so has been playing in my car on repeat. Literally. I have not listened to one other thing. It just plays over and over. This song has become my song of deliverance. My anthem!

I truly don't know what you are up against right at this moment, but I have come to share in the hope that I have found. It could be a heavy financial situation, a broken marriage or relationship, depression, sickness, anxiety, fear, anger, or defeat. I declare today that if you purpose in your heart to run after God and hand over your heart, your desires, and needs, he will show up right in the middle of your situation. I don't mean to preach, but I feel so strong about telling someone this. God is ready to meet you right where you are at. He is calling you by name! Nothing but amazing results follow when one pursues the presence of God. Whatever the need, your answer lies in Him. I can't urge you enough....go after Him!

Like I mentioned before, this has been my anthem for the past few days and I would like to share it with you. Listen to the words carefully and I pray that you too will choose to forget about the circumstance, give God your burdens, and run after Him.

Just a thought!

Out With the Old and In With the New!

For the past 5 years, I have been experiencing these crazy dreams and this morning I woke up from one of them. They always leave me in this paralyzed state of fear only to be able to pray my way out of it. 80% of the time, after a few moments, I am able to go back to sleep, but this morning I couldn't. I laid in bed trying to figure out what this dream meant. I tried to remember every detail of what was happening. I focused on people, colors, emotions, the environment, and nothing was really making sense and I couldn't make the connection to my everyday life. So, I laid there and tried to go back to sleep, and I was failing miserably. 

I started to think about what the next few months of my life will look like. I am embarking on a new journey that brings a bit of excitement but also much fear. In the middle of trying to make sense of it all, I was reminded again (I'm sure through His still small voice) that I really need to let some things and some people go that I have held onto far too long. I don't understand why this is such a hard process. If this thing, or person has brought us so much pain, you would think that you would get rid of it immediately. Instead we harbor bitterness and hurt. We let the wound scar over just enough to cover the deep rooted issue, pretending it never existed. 

I decided this morning, in the wee hours of the morning before the sun was even up that there are some familiar things and some familiar people that are soon going to become unfamiliar. Today, I am letting you go!!

What are you holding on to that isn't allowing you to be free? I think its time to be "out with the old, and in with the new." The newness that only God can bring!
