“That’s What Faith Can Do”

So many of us struggle through the trials and tribulations of life. We have suffered through brokenness from abuses, adultery, deception and all the wrongs of this world. But God gave us His Word and His Son to show us the way to overcome. We have to trust Him… and walk in faith.

I thank God for His blessings…
with all He’s done for us…
for our paths have not been easy…
but we’ve all learned to trust.
And as I drove down the road…
praising the Lord today…
5 words came to me…
as I heard the Lord say… Continue reading

Wounds Of Abuse: “Stupid!”

Weapon_choice-027-Edit_STUPID

Wounds of abuse are real! These innocent victims of abuse believe these negative words spoken against them, and their lives are negatively impacted by the power in these words. We all need to realize the “power of the spoken word” and change the way we speak. We need to build up, not tear down. Our children’s lives and our future generations depend on what we teach. Teach them by setting the example.

Stupid! Stupid!
One of many hurtful words said!
As more and more are abused…
not physical, but emotional instead.
For verbal and emotional abuse…
are not considered abuse to many.
For no bruises or cuts are exposed…
but the invisible wounds are plenty. Continue reading

Unspoken Words

So many of us have struggles and fears that we are unable to verbalize because of our situations… But God hears though our words never leave our mouths. He hears our prayerful thoughts and sees the wounds deep within. We just need to keep crying out to Him… whether spoken or unspoken! He knows!!

Unspoken words…
with prayers from the heart…
when we can’t even speak…
or a flood of tears will start.
For the pain is too great…
when our situations seem bleak.
But God knows our thoughts…
though no words we speak. Continue reading

Heart Surgery!!

So many of us have been wounded by abuses including adultery, abandonment, and rejection. These abuses cause deep seeded wounds that negatively impact our lives. We need “heart surgery” to fit the damage.  Do we have anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, slander, lust, deceit, pride, and other wrongs in our heart. We may need His “heart surgery” to remove these to move forward into the calling that God has planned for each of us. Think about it?

Heart Surgery!!
Two words that many fear.

Heart Surgery!!
Needed for physical repair…
but many more need it…
for the wounds that they bare.


Wounds of abuse and rejection…
have been embedded so deep.
And it’s these hidden wounds…
to the heart that we speak. Continue reading
