His Truth

I am SO excited! It amazes me everyday, how wonderful God is. Of course not all days feel wonderful, but thats the beautiful thing about faith...even when we don't "feel" it, we can trust and believe that He is forever and always faithful, that His grace is still opertaing in our lives, that His love has not changed, and that we are still favored and treasured.

I AM a success :) yep... thats what God says about me. He says that I am a success. He says that I am holy, faithful, a blessing to my family, prosperous, helathy, whole, complete, surrendered, lovable, beautiful, confident, bold, and every other wonderful thing under the sun. So are you. It's not about what we see on the outside. The outside reflection off all Godly attributes will come as we begin to be transformed on the inside. Drawing closer to God and allowing Him to help us believe that what He says about us is true, is the only way real outward change is produced.

EXCITING!!! It's not all about me trying harder. Its all about Him, reflecting His great works and love into my life. This is good news!

If you have read any of my earlier posts, you know that I have been transitioning lately and it has been rough. But God, so faithful and true is reminding me at a deeper level of His great and wonderful love for me, that I am His beloved and that He will guide me.

My "ministry" right now may not look the way I thought...but what God says about me is true and I am begining to see the blessing of my new business and how it gives me opportunity to pray for so many people that are coming into my life. I have the opportunity to help people change their lives and I can because I am who God says I am....Read on at Wrapped Up With Daveda

Jesus Is Our Happy Ending

Do you ever feel emotionally moved and touched by a love story, or feel your eyes brimming with tears as you watch a movie about someones dreams coming true? I know, I know...a lot of people say that it's "only in the movies." Some people will even caution you to not get swept away by the unrealistic expectations these movies can create. But why do we experience such emotions, is it really all bad?

Want to know what I think? I think we were created by God to be loved and valued. I think that deep inside each one of us is a desire, placed by God, to be treasured and favored. I think that God created each one of us with a desire to be successful, confident, bold and fearless. I think the reason these movies and stories stir something inside of us is because we can see our hopes and dreams in them.

The problem isn't the emotions or the longings that get stirred inside of us. The problem is that we don't always look to Jesus to fulfill them. He is our answer to every longing and desire we have. Jesus is the answer to our happy ending.

I realized something this morining...My focus has been all wrong. After all that God has shown me about His love and His grace fully operational and functioning in my life...I somehow got my mind stuck looking in the wrong direction.

"For I determine not to know anything among you except Jesus Chris and Him Crucified"
1 Corinthians 2:2

My life has been shifting a bit lately and I have found myself constantly looking at myself and trying to decide if I know what I'm doing. The problem is I should be looking at Jesus and reminding myself that He DOES know what He's is doing. I don't have to try and figure out all these answers, I simply need to refocus and look to Jesus. He WILL guide me, lead me and teach me all things!

It not about me!! It's about HIM. It's not about me having the right answers, or making the right choices becasue when I am completely dependant on HIM He will simply guide me. If I make a mistake it's still ok because God uses ALL things together for good for those who love him.

I know Christ Crucified and what that means for me is a life of rest and trust in His goodness, grace and power operating in my life.

P.S. I am in the process of starting up a new blog page for my business. It'll be ready soon, please come take a look HERE
