Hope, Faith and Love

This is the post excerpt.

I’ve been thinking about the world we live in and how important it is to come together as believers, in the plans that God has for those that love Him and want to walk in the way He has intended for all human beings. A path of unending choices and worldly ambitions that tend to distract us from the promises that bring us peace.

I have an overwhelming desire to somehow share what He has taught me, to actively be a sharer of His love through many years of documented conversations with the light of His love that exists in the deepest depths of my soul, not to push religion but to express a relationship with my Father in Heaven.

I am going to put it out there that I am open to any feedback, questions or experience’s that have brought you to believe in and trust that Jesus is as real to you as He is to me. I have a great love for God that has grown to such a fulfilling and beautiful relationship that I absolutely could not imagine my life without Him. I will also be happy to answer questions however I am not ordained or educated in theology. I am only educated in life experience.

I have been journaling for much of my life. If I were to put it into a calculation of years, it would be at least 20. My journals consist of morning conversations with the Lord that encourage me and lift me up in preparation for my day. Journaling brings peace to my soul and I talk to God as if He is a friend sitting across the table from me. I really haven’t gone back to read much of what I have written but what I have went over amazes me.

I am excited to begin sharing some of the content of these journal entries in hopes that it can somehow uplift others and give hope to those that are hurting or struggling. We face many challenges throughout a day and it is often helpful to be able to know that we are not alone in these struggles. I grew to love and know God, I wasn’t borne into a family that was active in church or bible reading. I was raised in a broken, dysfunctional family that struggled in life as many of us do. I’m not really going to go into the deep stuff of my past. I just want people to know that I can relate in some of the most down word painful life experiences.

So with that being said just to scrape the surface and break the ice a little, I want to say Hello my name is Michelle and I want to ask you if you know Jesus? He loves you!

I thought it would be a great idea if I added an entry from my journals in my blogs and at some point in my life take all that I have written and put it in a book.


So many times I’ve wanted to pray over a certain individual and I didn’t always do it. It’s strange how fear of how someone may feel about you would cause a different reaction to what one’s heart is telling them to do. Lately I’ve been struggling with thoughts that I know are not my own. Weird and sometimes wayward thoughts. I know they are not mine. I know they are forced into my mind by Satan as a trick to try to tempt and side track me from my destination. I know that if I were walking without the Lord in my life I would fall into the pit of despair and give way to the torment.

This is what happens to people who do not have God at the center of their hearts. I once was one of these people. Lord, please let me be a vessel of your love. Humble me and let me be a servant unto you. Remind me time after time to stay in complete peace no matter the situation. Remind me to be kind-hearted and patient with all. That I would stay busy with my hands and lift you up in praise with my mouth. That across my lips will always be my adoration of you. That I would not become over-whelmed but always know “With God all things are possible”

Thank you Lord for all of my blessings.


The Flame

see the glowing embers of my heart,

fanned by the traces of time,

blown about by the breath of life,

lost dreams take flight in the night sky,

shadows of wisdom dance around my head,

earthly sorrow has no hold,

the stars shine so bright,

my soul aches to find you here,

amidst this glowing universe,

I feel you near,

You hold my heart in the palm of your hands,

Your infinite beauty ignites hope,

the flame of loves eternal,

inspires me deeply,

dream little dreamer, dream!

Final Destination

We are in this world but yet at times blinded by darkness and forget we are not of it,

You O ‘Lord are our destination,

We can travel all around the world but our final stop will be where you are,

A place where tears no longer fall and peace reigns,

Walls don’t exist,

Just a beautiful glimpse of eternity,

When I think of this,

I am comforted and free from here,

Embrace my heart with your infinite love,

For thine grace is a mystery,

Yet I drink deeply of it and thirst only for your truth my King,

May the sweetness of your presence be the aroma that fills my days,

The eyes of my soul seeking only thee,

In this torn and tattered place that my feet walk upon,

Will once again see the goodness of the Lord,

For where my heart is,

There my home will be,

Where I stand is only temporary,

My final destination is in the arms of thee,




Until We meet again

If I screamed out loud because I can’t hold it in anymore would my voice sail on the gentle breeze and carry my desperate prayers to you?
If I could measure the time in one’s life in my hand would the sand overflow to see hope grow until the age of old?
If I could just hold you close so you would know you are not alone and the fear of what is beyond this land is but the promised place in which thine dwells.
If I told you good-bye only exists in words because forever is where we will always be whether together or not were bound by thee.
If I told you we will one day meet again where tears don’t fall and pain no longer breaks our bones, only peace is known.
If to when I am called will you wait at the pearly gates to let me in, to greet me with open arms as though we had never been apart?
If so-long for now is all I have to say, may my heart hold memories of you until that fateful day….



When the shadows of thoughts tower over me, my hope shrinks inside the caverns of my soul, desperate to move the mountain of emotions that block my path;
I lean on you, the cross bent beneath my hand, beautifully carved and shaped just for me, the crutch that was fashioned from a tree, the blood-stained wood that set man free;
Lead me Lord beside still waters that I may drink deeply of all that you are and when the valley’s become to much for me to bare and the bones of this old body begin to wither beneath my skin, I will lean on you;
With my right hand I will hold tight to the cross, my faith that holds me up, the gift of your love that keeps me above the tides of life that threaten my peace, I will hold tight to you with all the courage and strength that you have placed within me;
The clouds begin to part the darkness in my heart and the Son appears, just as promised I heard the knock and opened the door, mountains moved and I witnessed my soul soar;



Baby Bird

Baby bird, Baby bird,
How you struggle to fly, with your deformed little wings soaked from the tears that you cry,
O’ little bird how I wish I could hold you up, up so high in the sky that our Father in Heaven could dry your tiny feathers with His loving eyes,
Sweet baby bird, don’t fear, you’re not alone, I believe you can soar through the bluest sky’s where the unknown roams….




You have blessed me Lord, with more than I deserve.

When I stop my spinning thoughts and worldly consciousness,

I am in awe of you,

Truly you are good and your mercy endures,

Your love never fails me,

I drift through the streets of life,

My journey forks to the left and the right, my past pulls me from behind to take hold of my mind and time slips by,

Truth seeps through my fingers like sand, before I realize it, I feel dammed,

The mystery of who you are I seek daily,

You say to me as I cling to the hope that saves me,

“I am with you always”

Look not to the left or right nor behind for “I am ahead of you, preparing your way,

The light that brightens your day!

Grace beyond measure poured out upon Gods treasure,

Underserving without a doubt yet my heart cries out to receive,

My mind incapable not able to fathom the mysteries of His great love for me,

Souls searching and uncertain of tomorrow clinging to only what this world gives,

The burden of hopelessness and sorrow while joy is purchased with hollow eyes,

Brought to my knees I grieve my own fist clinching scorn,

O’ tortured soul eager to leave,

Clinging to thoughts that shred everything that I am as I wrestle with my inner man,

Bravery becomes faith that ingulfs every breath I take and what is only temporary is my fate,

This world that separates me from heaven’s gate will be as but a memory that is not my own,

So today I hold the truth in my hand because that is all that has been promised,

The golden pages of a love so strong pulsing my heart encouraging me to push on,

As my tattered emotions make their way into your presence,

The peace that surpasses all understanding is the key,

Because you Lord are filling every empty place in me!



Timeless Wonder

Timeless wonder,

Thoughts drifting past the silent gazing of my searching soul,

Caressed in wonder as my heart tiptoes just beyond freedom,

Inhaling sheer delight as my pulse quickens,

Truth whispering my feet lifting from where I stand,

The mystery always intriguing me,

Believing in thee,

Sweet serenity portrays the most beautiful essence of God’s grace,

Blindness released as disbelief no longer binds the lost,

Without a cost,

Given freely,

A man plans his own ways,

But His plan remains the same and the path is clear,

Choose wisely the time is drawing near….

The power of your great love unfolds as like a butterfly’s wings preparing for flight; so doth my soul,

Sitting in your presence creates in me an ability to not only believe but to close my eyes and breathe in visions of who you are,

Silence carried on a breeze that caresses my face with such gentle tenderness,

My heart beating with a calm delight as my eyes begin to glisten with the hope that fills every void space in this weary body,

And as a child who has drifted from the fathers eyes I hear the call from deep inside; come my child and find rest,

All the sorrows of this world momentarily fade and the gift that you so lovingly gave stands before me at wait; arms open true loves welcomed embrace,

O’ Lord, how my soul longs to stay blanketed in this moment that comforts like an encompassing cloud that drifts across the bluest sky,

The Son that shines on every created thing, bringing forth praises and honor as I give glory to my King,

Hallelujah Hallelujah Holy Holy is He!

The Test

Life is worth living, it just gets a little tricky at times,

courage seems to be a dream and winning the fight takes a lifetime.

People come and people go, some live and learn, some never grow,

some do but real slow.

Sometimes we know and we show it but those around us ignore it and so

we close it up inside and store it away for some other day hoping and

praying and sustaining the dream so it doesn’t flitter away because

I just may come apart at the seams of this body that was created

just for me, and you see I might seem as though I am a sad and lonely soul

but I’m not, just a lot of thought that always has my mind pulled taut,

like a traffic jam and every light is green but I can’t go because the hope

that fuels my soul is stuck in a rut and my gut says this isn’t real be still my

beating heart that is so loud that my ears are about to explode from the

pounding of every beat that slams against my chest, my soul singing be at rest,

be at rest, this isn’t a test but somehow I’m stuck on the same question

and the answer has never changed but I have, and time is counting down

with every stroke of my pen as my hand glides across these pages yet again

and again, my soul staining every space between these lines telling the story

of every truth that I am until my story is over,               The End!
