“Faith tells me no matter what lies ahead of me, God is already there.”
This especially on this day of great change Inauguration Day. No matter who is President God is King!
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!
First thing in the morning with my coffee in hand I head to the couch where there I begin my day with prayer.
I have to go to God before I enter into my day. It is my morning quiet time with God. It is where my heart, and spirit sync up with God’s will for my day. I usually begin by thanking God for another day. For we are never promised our tomorrow. I always thank Him for another day of sobriety.
My husband, and I as well read together. Then we pray together as well. We lift up family, friends, anyone who has asked us to pray for them. This has been every morning of our marriage. It doesn’t matter if we are on vacation, or we are just hanging around the house. 7 days a week I start my day with prayer, and reading.
“Thy will not mine be done”. That is that last thing I always say. Then I can feel confident in God to begin my day His way.
I cling to this today, in a world of uncertainty I find myself in prayer. I shall not live in fear, letting go of all at the cross on Calvary.
I find solace in the throne room right at my Father’s feet. I know without a doubt I can trust my unknown future to a very known God. The world may seem crazed, I just have to keep my focus on praising Him in His name! Father “thy will be done”.
This new world order is what must be for you to fulfill things I can not see. I am on bended knee, with faith over fear. You always have our best at heart, you have it down to an art. Even though we can not see the whole picture, you are holding the finished masterpiece in the palm of your hand! On this your truth I stand!
Inuendos of lavenders footprints, Spring lurks in the bloom
The hues are vast in pastels, my eyes have a path set before my gait
Frangrant at the sides of me sublime as I tilt my head for a scent
All this in my arms reach God made for me to uphold
Not a place my eyes take peak that I can’t see God so unique
Purple, Lavender, Blue, Green, tall trees in the midst of the pallete
My path is set before me seeking God in all His glory
Brushing the limbs with the tips of my fingers in hopes my heart takes remeberance
Soft, a little crunchy is the earth beneath me lavender path
Lavender pathway I giggle with girly enchantment
Can I clip a pinch of purple and wear it as a soldier does, I will give you all praise for my wounds you healed
My wings want to take flight into the forest deep a violet wonderland
Take me, lead me, let me follow for today I am yours, and everyday there after, into Lavenders gait

It is the perseverance that you carry, and the smile that you wear. Your heart of gold. You are bold beyond your years
You got up with all you could muster, life had sucked you dry. No tears left to cry. Tired of handing over all of your paychecks with not even a bed to lay your weary hard working bones. No food to keep you fed
You walked out the door, shut the door tight. No key leaving the chaotic ruins behind. Never looked back, as your heart had already took quite a beating. You were always on the back burner, you turned inward words were missed. Personality unknown to them in your home
Clothed in courage you drove miles in change of your life. Yours is an uphill climb. Nothing has come easy. You walk a step behind, but yet you still dig your toes in and begin

I am proud of you, and God has you! Look up, and you shall see the courage comes from above, and He is there. Your life is in the making. It is yours for the taking. God is giving you freedoms pass. True grit in all you do. Perseverance, and free at last. God is rewriting your life. In Him take take up refuge. Never be weary for a place to lay your head again
He will give you billows of peace as you continue on. I see your smile, you can’t fool me. It is the darn cutest thing I ever have seen. Makes your mama’s heart sing
