I Wanted to Take a Break

I keep sending out blog posts wishing extending holiday greetings ahead of time and saying I am going to take a hiatus. But the truth is I need to write because if I don’t I will burst. I’m not even sure if anyone is reading my posts anymore, but that is okay. This is cathartic and anyone who is reading is just looking in.

I was reading a blog post about a woman dealing with the demise of her marriage and it’s so painful to read. I feel her sadness. It’s terrible to be rejected by someone. And it’s sad that some men are so narcissistic that they still want to hang around and they don’t realize that you hurt the woman when you do that.

It’s kind of cruel. But you have to let people do what they do and they will get what is due them for the things that they do.

Sometimes I chuckle when I think about how some men will emotionally abuse women and then think they are going to live happily ever after. I know of a situation where a Pastor divorced his wife for no reason and now his ministry is not flourishing and he has to downsize, but sometimes men never make the connection. It’s connected.

How you treat people will affect how God treats you. You don’t emotionally abuse hundreds of woman and then get married and live happily ever after. I’ve seen it happen. The player usually wakes up in a nightmare ad often God allows him to be fooled.

Just venting. I wanted to take a break, but I can’t. But I have made a commitment to no longer respond to certain things. I might not have to worry about that, but just like this dream I had recently. If that dream manifests, I plan on running in the opposite direction.

I’m on my way to Ybor City…Mr. Right! lol

Fast And Pray

I am contemplating some changes and it hit, me that I need to fast and pray. You should never make any big decisions, i.e. changing jobs/career, geographical location or marriage WITHOUT fasting and praying.

The flesh is very deceptive and it’s important that we hear from God and not do what the flesh is telling us we should do. Or God may really want us to do something, but the flesh is telling us NOT to do it. The only discipline I know that I have to do is take time and fast.

Often it’s after you fast, that you see things more clearly.

Matthew 6:16

English Standard Version (ESV)


16 “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.


There Is No Way Lord!

Have you ever said that to God? Have you ever looked at a circumstance in your life and thought, there is no way this is going to happen. This morning I woke up breathless, mainly because I have a cold, but also because I am at crucial point in my life. A prophet gave me a word recently and the wording was interesting. He said that I was being MADE TO MOVE. Almost like I was being forced. It makes perfect sense. I know if I don’t move destiny will be lost.

I woke up this morning fretting because I don’t have the means to accomplish what God is telling me to do and it seems like there is a time crunch, but I read this and was encouraged. Someone needs to be encouraged today!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:Rise up with renewed hope and faith that nothing is impossible with Me, says the Lord.  Release your concerns and distress to Me.  I cannot deal with that which you do not give to Me.  Trust Me for strength where you have been weak and peace where there has been turmoil.  Do not be afraid; I am with you to bring you through every dilemma and cause you to be strong.

Isaiah 61:1-3  1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
