Stuck Like Glue…Feelings

Life sometimes seems dark, then we experience moments of blue. Those moments of blue, can make you feel stuck like glue, trying to paralyze you.

Refuse to Give Up, Stand Strong

Life crisis are not always fair, often times it is too much, to bare alone.

Remember God is on the throne.

Cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you. This is nothing new, but it is true.

Hold On…

His Grace and Mercy carries you through circumstances that should have taken you out, but God.

Stay Strong…

Lord, looking to you, the author and the finisher of my Faith. You always seem to make a way of escape.

You are a way-maker, a provider.

You are a Strong-Tower, a redeemer.

You are the Living Word, sustaining nourishment from day to day.

Be as a tree planted by the rivers of water or like an Eagle who has mounted up on wings in full flight. Flying above the storm.

Refuse to Give In, Stand Strong…

Like the weather on a cool rainy Autumn Day. The next hour it is warm, blue and true.

Things are forever changing. The world is evolving everyday, yet in a temporal state.

InHisCare,

Yonnie

The Dark House

How many times have you heard the phrase, “Life Happens?”

Reflecting back to my to my childhood, I recall hearing this phrase, being loosely used by my Dad. Like an echo, in response to his own statement, you’d hear “Get use to it.” Pondering within myself, then watching angered look of frustration settle within him, was pretty scary.

We were all programmed. Once he arrived home from drinking, we encountered mood shifts and confrontations. Afterwards came his favorite quote, “Life happens, deal with it.” All verbal conversation, smiles and laugher would instantly cease. The paranoia and fear of us talking behind his back, plagued him everyday. It was all about control, it was like a light switch.

The white walls inside of the house went from sunshine to darkness. Silence filled the cold lifeless house. During the times of silence the three of us communicated with one another by whispering, using jesters and hand signals. My Mother would attempt to make a game out of it, just to ease the tension and stress. We were hostages, moving about the house as if we were walking on eggshells, in fear of awakening the terror. If walls could talk, they would have cried out for help, revealing many secrets…

No one deserves or ever has to accept abuse of any nature, at any age from anyone. If you or you know of someone who is in danger. Tell community service workers or local authorities.

Yonnie’s Words of Affirmation:

God Loves ♥️ Me!

I am valuable, beautifully and wonderfully made by God.

I am more than a conqueror.

I have a voice and will not be silenced.

I will Speak up!

I will Speak Out!

I am Free.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

John 1:5 NIV

Embrace the Moment

Stop, Pause, Breathe

Stop, Pause, Breathe

It has been an extremely busy day of appointments, laughter, chitter chat with my two best girl, my daughters as the music plays softly in the background.

We spent a meaningful afternoon together bonding. We cannot take it for granted that things are good. We have to invest the time and make ourselves available.

Stop, Pause, Give Thanks

It is vitally important that we embrace our current place in time knowing that God’s Grace is sufficient. He gives us new Mercy each day.

Refocus…Slow Down

Like A caterpillar we often are busy eating, working, moving about enjoy life.

Living a carefree life in the sun.

Moving along from branch to leaf, leaf to branch.

Doing what we do as we live this carefree life.

Slide in, Slide out, doing our thing, not wanting to stop.

Suddenly Getting biGGEr on the things around us, biGGER and BIGGER…metamorphosis has begin to set in.

Waiting, waiting waiting….

No movement, paralysis has set in. A coating, a shield of protection today.

It is now a time of rest… it is process.

A time to take care of oneself.

A time to tune in, no more distractions or interruptions. Securely fastened.

A time to tap in…

Knock, Knock, who’s there?

Good, no answer. You are plugged in. Resting, not pressing.

You are no longer just doing, to stay busy, but take the time out, refuel and live again.

Be renewed in your mind with the washing of the word, as you mediate both day and night.

My life is in your hand. Surrender All!

InHisCare,

Shimmering Light

After walking in the cool of the night, through the woods.

Darkness grew thicker,

Every tree looked the same.

Coldness settled in quickly, as she searched for a way out.

Hoping to find the path home.

There in the distance was a shimmer of light.

Drawing closer pressing through the covered trail.

The light seem to from a lantern sitting in window of the small cabin.

Overwhelmed with the joy of finding safety.

Tears begin to fall, drenching her face.

That shimmering light seemed even brighter, as she wiped her tears away.

It gave her a sense of hope, her sight clearer.

She was led to the place.

No longer lost, but found.

The Light guided her Home.
