New Face Needed

After spending some time back on my blog I have realized that I need to create a new face for my blog page! I can't manage my blogs, and I am having trouble leaving comments on some of your have no idea that I visited you and loved what you had to say! I'm working on becoming a bit more computer savy. I want to be able to post writings as well as possibly some audio teaching at some point.

Any suggestions? Im looking for something that is fresh and new...

Making Time

Its been a long, hard year here in the Schmildin household. I have been very preoccupied, run down and far to consumed with the problems of the past year. God has been showing me just how much time I have wasted worrying over the seemingly endless catastrophes that haven taken place over the past year of our lives.

It's so easy to lose focus. But the Lord is forever faithful and has not only been revealing the truth of my ditractedness but also bringing forth new life and hope in my soul. He is giving me a strength and a determination that I do not believe I have ever had before.

In all of my Christian walk I have never really strayed too far from the Lord. I have never walked away, or felt that He walked away from me. Not entirely anyways. This past year, even though I talked with the Lord daily, I have discovered that I wasnt really trusting Him. I know in my heart that God is using all I have been through to teach me how to have an even greater trust in Him, and His ability to work in my life. He is showing me how much time I have wasted as well as working in me at deeper levels to grow and nurture my belief in His faithfulness.

Nothing in this world is as fulfilling and satisfying to me as sharing Gods heart with others. My heart is so full of joy when I type or speak and allow the Holy Spirit to flood the pages or the room with the truths that have been imbedded into the depths of my soul.

I have missed being me...I am looking forward to growing in who God has called me to be. I still have some things to work through...But, Im getting there!

An old friend left this message on my FaceBook page recently,

"Hey Daveda! Congrats on your new grandbaby, you are one of the most beautiful Grandma's I've ever seen! :) On another note...I have decided today, to pray for you to have more time to blog...any selfishness on my part? Maybe a bit. ;)"

and I realized that Im not the only one who misses me.

I am hesitant to say I will blog regularly...yet...but I would like to. So, maybe all of you could pray for me too. Pray that what I am truly passionate about will be what I make the most time for. my "old friend" Vicky...Thank You!

Even When

I made it here twice this week! Woohoo!! If you didn't catch the weeks earlier post just boogie on down below and take a look.

We have had so many things going on in our lives this past past year...and they are still going. Who knows what lifes going to look like in seven months from now...I wonder??

What I do know and am increasingly learning, is that I don't have to try and figure it out. So refreshing...there are moments when wish I just knew what was coming so I could prepare myself and my heart, but I guess that God's job anyway.

So I will continue to be lead by the Holy Spirit and trust that He is in the process of doing just that, preparing me for what is to come. He's good at that ya know! We often get in His way, thats the problem.

We (I, I'm assuming I'm not alone in this) Try to figure out whats coming, try to reason out scenarios, try to look deep inside and determine what our "faith" says...WOW! Can we all say OVERWHELMING!!!

I'm glad that I am increasingly growing in having my "faith" in the person of Jesus regardless of the outcome. I'm glad that God is teaching me how to continually trust in HIS goodness, wisdom, favor and power at work in my life regardless of what I see.

I'm glad that He is faithful and constant to me, Even When I struggle to believe Him.

"I AM"

I wish I could get to this blog more often, however, it seems as though I feel and it is necessary to write and share with you some deeply thought out insights that are proof read and thought over and over,- or nothing at all.

I don't have as much time to be in blogger world as I used to, but I really miss it. I miss you.

So. I've decided that I am just going to pop on here and share whatever happens to be on my mind. I'm not going to spend a lot of time "proof reading" and "rewording" what I say. I'm just going to put it out there and thats how you'll get it. If you came to my house for a cup of Starbucks House Blend, we would just talk. Just plain, raw, unproofed, thoughts and feelings.

So, lets have coffee.

I don't have a lot to say today other than my life has been full of trials and situations this past year. At the present time, this is still the case as I am sure is true for many or all of you. We all have "stuff" going on, right? Right.

Anyway, a simple sentence gave me peace this morning and I felt like sharing. I believe this is for me, and all of you that are having coffee with me right now.

"I AM, what your looking for."

Simple, Profound, Life-Giving.

"I AM, what your looking for."

Being Loved By Him, With You,

Living in Eden

What do you think it was like for Adam and Eve, living in Eden? Can you imagine a place with no shame, condemnation, guilt, or remorse. Close your eyes for just a moment and think about what life would be like if none of these things ever came betweeen you and God; Can you imagine it?

I can. Oh, how I long to learn and have an understanding that goes to the very core of my being, the redemtive revelation of Gods love for me. How my heart longs to recognize at a much deeper levels the oneness that we have with the Father because of what Jesus has done for us.

I believe there is a truth hidden in these thoughts of mine. A truth that will guide and lead us to a place of intwined intimacy with the Father. A truth that encompasses our hearts and souls in such a way that we will never doubt the Fathers love and acceptance of us.

So, what do you think? What do you think life would be like, here and now, if we received and accepted the truth that we have been redeemed back to the place of Eden?
