As I was driving home in a rainstorm the other day, these thoughts came to me. Rain cleanses, it refreshes, it restores. Let us allow His Love to wash over us like the rain.

Rain pours down…
like tears streaming down faces…
to cleanse and restore…
wiping away past dirt and disgraces.
For a fresh cleansing…
is what many of us need…
to start fresh and anew…
like a new slate to read.
For when we start all over…
and allow God to lead the way…
it’s like driving in a downpour…
where you hardly see but just pray. Continue reading

Inspirational Picture of the Day: You Have a Choice

Image result for countless have lost their joy john 10:10

This is for those who have developed a negative attitude from the negative words constantly being spoken over them and the hurtful actions against them.  When all we see and hear is negative,  we tend to always look for the negative. But we can begin to change our outlook by choosing what we want to focus on and speaking positive ourselves.  It is a process of transformation… and it is a daily choice.

So many lose their joy
as darkness looms all around…
but many fail to even look…
for the Light that can be found.
Like wearing dark sun glasses…
that shade the light of day…
many succumb to the darkness…
and chose to live that way. Continue reading

The Wails of Brokenness

The wails of brokenness…
is an indescribable cry…
when a loss is so great…
with no answer to the question “why”.
It comes with a feeling…
of total devastation and more…
where the pain is insurmountable…
and life will never be as before.
It is a point of brokenness…
where the cries come from deep within…
where you can’t catch your breath..
and the tears seem to never end. Continue reading

Seeds of Brokenness

Seeds of brokenness…
get implanted in our hearts.
And all it takes is a trigger…
for the growth of these to start.
For the seed of rejection…
gets planted with abuse and divorce…
and it’s difficult to get rid of…
mixed together with pain and remorse.
And the seed of abandonment…
gets implanted as a child…
and it may stay dormant…
with no growth for a while. Continue reading

REMEMBER THE 3 A’s of BROKENNESS: Abuse, Abandonment, And Adultery

As I honor my mom this week who has breathed her last,
I remember some of her struggles with brokenness in her past.
And this posting on The 3 A’s of Brokenness keeps coming to my mind
for so many of us have experienced them with the brokenness that we find.
Now I pray that eyes will be opened with God’s standards honored in all our days
for none of us deserve to be broken by the mistreatment of these 3 A’s.
So let’s please guard your eyes and ears and all of our gates
for what we “let in” becomes acceptable and leads many to mistakes.
