As we approach the New Year, my heart is now ready to share with my WordPress friends.
After much turmoil of internal school politics, my family and I made the decision in July for me to quit my “loved” position as an elementary secretary.
We are now enjoying our son’s senior year in high school.
Thank you Faye, from Passionate Creative Christian https://fayerootsauthor.com/ Your comment on July 1, 2016 to my post “The Roar of the Blue” unknowingly guided my feet to find the answer to God’s plan and path for my way.
In A Place Where Two Ways Met
“How could I have known, or ever believed to say,
I found direction and freedom within the Words that day.
One was from the OLD, and the other from the NEW,
But there was no doubt involved,
My heart heard clear from You.
In the “donkey and the lion” and “in the place where two ways met”,
You mightily untangled both my feet from within the fowlers net.
The “donkey” is a servant,
But it’s My Peace I give to you,
Not to be ridden hard, whipped and broke in two.
The “lion” is your strength, not to cast aside.
I’ve given you My Power when in Me you do reside.
So now you find your peace “in the place where two ways met”.
Eating up your today, and worrying about tomorrow.
Your blessings are here, and in this hour.
Embrace this “season” of new,
For I have equipped you.
Not by your will or strength, but by
My Love and Power!”
After much Word and prayer, my Jesus has led me here. Embracing a new “season” where in the “natural” makes no sense or reason. But this I know is sure, listening to His Voice, I am embracing a new open door.
Thank you WordPress friend for always welcoming back my pen.
I pray you each are well;
I’ve missed our
“Show and tell!”
“Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me…” Exodus 19:5 (KJV)
Peculiar – Hebrew #5459 Sigullah (seg-ool-law)
Peculiar – treasured, unique, special.
Word pictures of the word Peculiar encourages me to…
Samech – To rest, lean upon;
Gimel – The Kindness, the Help, of
Lamed – The Shepherd of

To rest, lean upon; The Kindness, the Help, of The Shepherd of – Grace
The Lord “Who makes all things new” has caused a new song of Hope to rise up in my heart!!
I was really suffering with indecision and doubt of my future plans.
During quiet time, the Holy Spirit brought a woman who within the past 24 hours and a long period of waiting and lost hope, literally had received a heart transplant.As I prayed for her wellbeing and all the complications and difficulties of a delicate surgery…
The Lord spoke to me…
Just like when I put a “new heart” in you, if your BODY rejects it – it dies!!!
I know what the Word has been speaking to my“spirit” man, but as Paul says, my “body” has been warring with my spirit!! I can either accept the Word of Life or reject it!!!
(I won’t say die, because I know Jesus will continue to walk with me even when I am not strong enough to “walk in the spirit” and let my body lead me the long way around.)
Praise Jesus for His Faithfulness – Mercy and Grace!!!
SO…After a LONG season of drought, He has opened the eyes of my heart to see the “new” in the plans and purpose He has for my life!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
