Three Word Wednesday

Docile, adjective: ready to accept control or instruction; submissive.

Inflict, verb [with object]: cause (something unpleasant or painful) to be suffered by someone or something; (inflict something on) impose something unwelcome on.

Whimper, verb [no object]: (of a person or animal) make a series of low, feeble sounds expressive of fear, pain, or discontent; [with direct speech] say something in a low, feeble voice expressive of fear or pain; noun: a low, feeble sound expressive of fear or pain; (a whimper) a feeble or anticlimactic tone or ending.

Whimpers could be heard
From the darkness in the room
Docile from each blow
That had been inflicted from the night before
A wounded bird crippled from the hatred
Each word inflicted 
Meant to cause more pain then the last
With each blow inflicted
The more docile she became
Each pray whimpered
Brought only more tears
The hopes of the Saviors love
From the pain that was ministered 
With the intent to destroy
The Lords love lifted her up
With whispers of love
Her prayers answered
In the whimpers of a docile broken soul

Lent Letters to God ~ Day 8~9

Mark 5:28
For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

Wednesday was great work day for me. I was super blessed by my clients and a few added extras. Even a gentleman came to get his hair cut. He so liked it he brought his bride of 72 years down to meet me. I was so blessed to see the love. I got some errands done and was feeling really blessed. Stopped to see hubby at work and things went a little south. Or maybe that was a whole lots south. And continued to spiral down hill from that point on. If only I would have said touch me Lord. But...I didn't. The things you learn in life along the journey. Thankful God loves me where ever I am.

Dear Lord thank you for always loving me right where I am. That all I have to say is touch me and I will be made whole. I love that we just have to call out your Sons name and you hear us. Thank you Lord even in our despair you watch over us and make us whole when we stop and call upon your name. Thank you Lord for even in our shortness you already made provision for us. Lord I thank you and give you the honor and the glory for all that you are doing and working out in my life in Jesus name Amen

Mark 11:24
“Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Today was getting laundry finished up. Paying bills and making business calls. Some which aren't always easy to make. Sitting before the Lord seeking His face and forgiveness in prayers. Asking for direction. Praying for multiple needs. Prayer is humbling! Whether your lifting others up which is extremely humbling and asking God for direction in life. It is always wonderful to watch Him work in our behalf as we believe to receive. Then when it comes to pass it is even more humbling to know that it was by his hand and love for us in His perfect timing that all will work out together for His glory in heaven.

Dear Lord as I seek your face and ask you to direct my path and shine your light upon the darkness and broken pieces of my heart I thank you that you are already mending them and healing them in Jesus name. I thank you that your word is a light unto me and a road map for my life as I seek you and your kingdom and righteousness. I thank you Lord as I come to you in pray that you are already answering my prayers and bringing them to pass. I thank you Lord that you see our needs and you have already made provision before we have even asked. I thank you Lord that in my weakness I am made strong in you. I thank you that you watch over me and hear my hearts cry. I thank you that I do believe and I do receive in Jesus name Amen

Sometimes it is very hard to pray. Do you have difficult in prayers in the storms of life or any other times?

Lent Letters to God ~ Day 7

Hebrews 13:9

…it is good that the heart be established by grace…

Today started with a very rough start. It was rocky to say the least. I tried to turn the day around. It did gradual get better. Though I must say it wasn't one of my best day for me emotionally. Glad to see the day come to an end. It was a very successful day business wise. I had three appoints and made a little cash to put towards bills. My oldest daughter Heather she is amazing always praying and asking the lord to help her mom. Also spoke with middle daughter today as well. WOW! I know my daughters love me. I didn't speak with youngest but if this two are an example I'm truly the most blessed mom in the world. I also spoke with my mom today. I love her so. 

Dear Lord I am so grateful for your grace for days like today. I thank you Lord for being there in the darkness carrying me through to the light on the side of your love and grace. Lord I thank you for all that you do for me and how you bless me beyond my wildest dreams. For those friends ships that I struggle with when I know that you have a greater plan than the one I see before me. I just need to stop and listen and know you are directing my path as you lead me to still quiet waters. I thank you for standing with me even when I just want to let go and just give up. You send those to help me see the grace and love and what you have for me. I thank you that your heart is for your loved ones and that you will never leave us or forsake us. That you love us to much to leave us where we are. I thank you for helping me and guiding me through the storm of live to the mountain top of Victory. I love you Lord and I thank you for loving me even when I'm unlovable. Thank you Lord thank you Lord. I love you! Beth

Do you thank God for the storms as you walk through them?

Lent Letters To God ~ Day 4, 5, 6

For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any two edged sword.…
— Hebrews 4:12

Saturday was a day filled some sunshine after sleeping most of the day away on Friday i knew I had to get up and start moving. I so wanted to crawl back under my covers and hide. I'm thinking if I could do that all my hardships and nightmares that I'm living would go away. Not the case at all. But...I manged to get moving and had a pretty good day. The sun was shining so that made it much easier to get out and about. Got to the bank, a little shopping done. Then some phone calls that I had neglected due to the fact I was ignoring all phone calls and texts as I was burying myself. Thankful that those that love me wont let me do that. 

Dear Lord thank you for your word and your love that you have given us. I thank you that you know what we all need. That we can open your word to any page and it will minister to us right where we are at. I thank you Lord for your love that you send it to us through your word and sweet Holy Spirit and those that you love to us. That they are there for us when we cannot seem to fight above the battle you send the prefect laborer across out path to help us fight the good fight of faith Lord. I thank you for all that you are doing in and through each one of us daily Lord. I thank you for a new day and a fresh beginning through your gift of life in Jesus name Amen.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Sunday is a day of wanting to snuggle up and not get up at all and just curl up under the blankets and watch movies. Manged to watch a few movies. I didn't get up and get dressed until almost four in the afternoon. I didn't want to get dressed at all. But guest arrived for a visit then a surprise dinner invitation. So curling up under blankets all day wasn't going to happen. I did enjoy the few movies I did watch. I will have to try a movie day another day. God is always making sure I don't lay in my depression and the storm I'm going through. So grateful He loves me so much.

Dear Lord I'm thankful for Godly movies that reflect your love and your righteousness. I'm thankful that I could curl up with a friend for most the day and watch a few movies that draw us closer to you. I'm thankful for how you work in our lives even when we don't see it Lord. I'm grateful you are always there loving me and showing me that your love. Thankful even in my depression and lost I can find you and your kingdom and what you have for me. I am so happy to be your child even in the difficult storms of live. Thank you for loving me even when I feel like no one could love me Lord. Thank you for drawing me close so that all that I need is found in you and you will add to it as I seek ye first and your kingdom and righteousness. I love you Lord thank you!

John 10:10
“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Today Monday the 23rd has been one of my better days in awhile. Worked around our new home. Did a bunch of small projects that have been on my to do list. It felt good working around the house and helping each other out. It was great to smile and laugh. The sun was out the drapes open letting the sunshine in. It was great to be excited about getting some of these projects done. Trying to find a new happy place isn't always easy. But....with God all things are possible. I know this road ahead will be hard but I am not alone. The best part is true. God did come to give us life more abundantly. Thank you!!! 

Dear Lord thank you for the Sunshine that shined brightly through my windows today letting a breath of fresh air flow through our home. I thank you that you gave us peace. That we were able to work on small projects together with a smile and some laughter. It was great to see things take shape and know that you blessed us with each one of those items, as well as the gifts and talents to get them done Lord. We thank you for friends that hold us in prayers and see our struggles and love us through each one. Lord I thank you for the flowers that bloom even when darkness falls on my heart; you send the sunshine and the love of your Son that brings life and life more abundantly. Thank you Lord for all that you are doing and going to do in our lives in Jesus name Amen 

Do you search for Gods love and sunshine in your sorrow and loss?

Lent Letters To God ~ 2015 ~ Day 3

Isaiah 40:31
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

As each day comes I try and find what the message is that I am to learn. Today it was rest. As it seemed all I wanted to do is sleep. My sisters wanted me to come down for the weekend. It was the hand reaching out to me. The one that God is sending in this time of loss and pain. Though I'm not sure I will head out to see them....As I have another friend that is here from out of town who always lifts my spirits when I am down. It is a strange Lent season for me. I'm sure that is why the Lent letters this year. As I wasn't going to do them....But it was what I was lead to do. God always seems to know what we need to draw us closer to Him so we can hear from Him and follow His perfect direction in a messed up world that we are to bring light and hope to. 

Dear Lord I thank you that you do renew our strength and give us what we need as we wait upon you. I thank you that you do mount us up on wings of eagles far above the trails and tribulations of this world and held tightly in your loving care. That we wont grow weary from the race and that you above given us everything we will need as we follow you and what you have for us Lord. I thank you that you reveal to us your goodness even in the darkness of our lives. That you have plans for us not to harm us but to prosper us Lord. I thank you Lord that your will would be done and not our will Lord. That we would continue to lean upon your and not our own understanding in Jesus name. I thank you that you see the full picture of our lives and are weaving it into something far more beautiful than we could ever dream or imagine Lord. I thank you that you are taking those broken pieces the broken toys and fixing them into a tapestry of beauty. Turning those ashes into beauty that you would be glorified in the midst and it would show the world your love for them and us. That you will give all the strength to those who ask and you will renew them and we will not grow weary as you have promised. Thank you Lord for showing your self strong in our lives that others may see and come to know you and serve and be healed in their brokenness and loss in Jesus name Amen
I love you Lord Beth
