New day new me new journey

So tonight starts a new journey into a study I am leading called HEAL. (Healthy Eating Abundant Living). I pray this will be a refreshing time with the Lord where He just teaches me about my body and His will and plans for it and how I can be a better steward of my body.

I have had a lot of changes this year in my life and more and more I am seeing I am not the old person I used to be. The Holy Spirit is at work in me and I am so thankful that He has came into my life to transform me into His image!

So...slowing down in my life...taking moments to really let the Lord transform me into who He wants me to be. Here is a song the Lord has put on my heart a lot lately and says kind of how I have been feeling.

New day, new me

So I feel like I have had so much heart changes in the last few months. Its amazing to see how much the Lord is just changing me as I allow Him full access to my heart and life. It's all His! Its the consistent thing I have trouble with, and I praise Him that He is the only thing in my life that is consistent. I wish I could be more consistent (and pray for this) on leaning on Him every moment throughout the day.

Hmm...what song have I enjoyed lately...here is one...I guess in all of my questioning and wanting to figure everything out every day, if I slow down and listen to the Lord He is saying this...BE STILL...I AM...

Rough morning...getting better

So this morning started out with me eating, I suppose maybe to stuff feelings. I have not enjoyed this. I have been believing lies that the enemy has fed to me and now I am seeing light. I pray for discernment in this and for me to just walk each moment with the intimate relationship with God that He wants me to have, which is perfect I know. I no longer want to avoid God's best for me. I want to continue in my Thin Within Journey, just letting go. That is the most freeing feeling. To trust that in this moment, the Lord is in control and I can trust that by His Holy Spirit that lives in me, He will guide me if I rest in Him and not try to run ahead. I pray for this, for me to trust and obey.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

So that is my prayer. Despite millions of circumstances I could list out that are not going my way or the way I want, I want to stop seeking comfort in every moment and seek my comfort in the Lord. He is the anchor for my soul, He will never leave or never change. I can continually draw close to Him and He will direct my paths. I analyze so much that I analyze everything the Lord tells me until its gone.

I no longer want to do this. I don't want to listen to the "inner brat" (as I learned from flylady) who is destroying my joy, but I want to listen to the Lord gentliy guide me day by day. I can't change a thing but with Him I can rest that He will change anything and everything that He wants to change.

So here goes to a good half of the day. The part where I lean on the Lord and not on myself. No more eating outside of hunger and fullness...which is what I have been learning in this wonderful journey with the Lord eating in His boundaries. www.thinwithin.org is where I am now.

I will post more later, those are my thoughts right now.

Long time

Its been a long time since I posted here. I have been discouraged because I have not "performed" to the way I know the Lord would want me to. But then I remember, this is not for me to strive to any sort of perfection, it is for me to learn how to walk in the Spirit...for as the scriptures say...

Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart fail, but: God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

And the scripture that I cannot think of at the moment that talks about not by my strength but by Your Spirit. I just want to learn this...I have strived in the flesh the past few months and the total peace left, I still had peace but knew there was something off. I am now returning fully and wholly to the Lord, in brokenness and just saying change me. I quit trying to control. So freeing to surrender like that but so difficult for the flesh.

So this is the song the Lord has put on my heart since yesterday, so smiling and surrendering over and over to Him until the day of Christ Jesus!!!

10/4/12 Amazing that God put this scripture on my mind and this is the 3rd time I have read it today.  I think God wants me to know today--PSALM 73:26 MY FLESH AND MY HEART FAIL, BUT:  GOD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY HEART AND MY PORTION FOREVER.

Again I will repeat :)
Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart fail, but:  God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I love this song!!!!!!!!

Today is a new day

Good evening. I am learning now that there is a honeymoon period when you first come to the Lord, and then you realize that some days are not always perfect. So I am learning to look beyond circumstances, look beyond feelings and emotions and keep my eyes fixed on the Lord. He has a plan for my every day. He is always with me, that is so comforting.

I am letting go! "It feels like I'm falling and thats what its like to believe!" I seek Him and His will every day and I will surrender my ways to the Lord new every morning. His mercies are new every morning.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

This is a great, stable, everlasting love! It will never end no matter what!!

Empty me!

I love this song! I want to pray and sing this song to the Lord every day! I SOOO long to be emptied so He can fill me overflowing!

Monday, June 8, 2009

This is so comforting and I honestly can say that I shall not want, there is nothing that the Lord has not provided for me...the reason for this...

I want my will to be His will, I want my priorities to be His priorities, I want my desires to be His desires...He will totally complete me! I just have to rest in Him, and live for Him and fall in love with Him more every day! That is my desire :)

Psalm 23
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

Live in Him!!

I feel so at peace...to know now that not always a word is needed from my mouth to tell someone about our awesome Father! He lives through me...if I can't say it in words I can say it with my actions and by living what His word says. This is my prayer for every single day until forever! Thank you Lord!! Thank you that you will direct my paths. Proverbs 3:5

You are my rock, I may not be perfect but I long for your perfectness to live through me and change me from within. My new life started the day I surrendered all. Another song that really shows how I feel and how I live now is this one, its awesome, love the words! The Lord uses it to remind me that is why I am so happy and at peace is because He is all I need.

I want to share how He has changed me!!! I glow for Him!

In the quiet
In the stillness
I know that You are God
In the secret of Your presence
I know there I am restored
When You call i won't refuse
Each new day again I'll choose

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

In the chaos in confusion
I know You're sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will
When You call I won't delay
This my song through all my days

All my delight is in You Lord
All of my hope
All of my strength
All my delight is in You Lord
Forever more

The reason I live

I am so glad that I am learning to surrender all to Jesus every day! What a peaceful, joyful feeling to just be free to obey Him and wow the amazing blessings He pours out on me! He is worthy, He is wonderful and I want to be a vessel for Him to just work through forever!

No day is perfect...but keeping focus on Jesus will make the picture much clearer.

New life

This new life, this new life that has Christ leading me, by His Holy Spirit, it is a life I will never give up, a life that is challenging, passionate, full of awesome life, extremely fruitful and wow, this life that I live for now, I never want to be out of Jesus' sight! EVER! In spite of hard times, in spite of uncertainty, in spite of doubt, in spite of discouragement, nothing holds a candle to trying to live this life without God in control! I praise Him for the changes He has made in my life, for allowing me to get to a point of total surrender so He could take over and how real He is to me now more than ever! This song says what I am feeling...I just want to know His ways and let Him be my guide and be totally dependent on Him for eternity! I love you LORD of my life!!

Happy day

I am going to be the real me. It is peaceful and comforting to know that I have strength in my weakness, the strength that He gives me. Knowing that God knows my heart...nobody else knows me in the world like God does. He will purify my heart, make me as He wants me, and I don't have to worry! That is awesome! Its my honor to serve the Lord in His will every day of my life. He has all the answers. Christ lives in me! I am HIS!

Galations 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

My prayer is that everyone that encounters me will see Jesus in me and that I will get out of the way and let Him glorify Himself through me! Happy Heart

Psalm 144:15 "Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD."

I have a song in my heart!

The song in my heart tonight...makes me smile!

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
[ Find more Lyrics on www.mp3lyrics.org/Kp ]
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me.

All my heart Lord, All Yours!

Luke 10:38-42:

"Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

I want to be like Mary, every hour of every day! I can't have more joy than that! I want to sit as His feet and obey His commands all the day long. It may bring challenges, that is okay, He will be with me through them. He promises. Forever! I love the Lord with ALL my heart, ALL my soul and ALL my mind! I am on a new journey now. Every day I am going to seek His will, and see what He has planned for me that day. He will guide me to be all He wants me to be, I am His now.

This song says how I feel.


Behold, Behold
I stand at the door and knock, knock, knock
Behold, Behold
I stand at the door and knock, knock, knock
If any girl hear my voice,
If any boy hear my voice,
And will open, open, open the door,
I will come in.

Revelation 3:20-22:

20 "Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.
22 "Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches."

I let Jesus in my heart 6 years ago. I am learning now what it really means to let Him live in me. This is an amazing, challenging, all wonderful journey. I am glad he chose me and I get to now walk in this new life He has given me, I am a new creation! Praise Him!

My first day of blogging

I am staring this blog to track my journey with God. My life is His and He is taking me on a new wonderful journey of showing me my heart, leading me on His path and blessing me every step of the way.
