Sometimes I get tunnel vision, and if I were clever enough to add a pic to that affect I would! And it seems that the longer I stay in the that tunnel the farther the things that mean the most to me start to fade. Am I the only one that this happens too? This morning I asked the Lord to demonstrate HIS love for me in view of my earthly eyes. Not realizing how very far I have allowed my schedule to distract me from HIM. As I thought about what I just asked HIM, I thought…hasn’t HE already done that…time and time and time again? So due to my schedule I blew the whole thing off as thinking too much. A song came on the radio that I haven’t heard for a long time, and I used to think it was OUR song. A few words from it..”you love me, you love, you love me just the way I am..and it makes me wanna dance”. Needless to say it stirred much emotion in me, and I found my self asking HIM, do you really love us just like we are…and I really want to dance again with you, and sometimes life just hurts, and I get so lost in it all. Then something different happened..I got the day off, and decided to just sit and spend some time just chillin, and recovering from a very crazy week. In the midst of that time…I recieved an email from someone who the Lord prompted to check on me, and she told me that she loved me and so did HE. Well, it touched my heart like only HE could have known to do, and I did ask HIM to tell me today. So I worked through some issues that my heart has been heavy with. Worked on a new plan to stay more focused and not to be overwhelmed in the everyday chaos. Then my phone rang..the same person who hurt me earlier this week, called and apologized and said the same thing..”I love you and I know HE does too”. I walked away from that phone call, and I wanted to dance with HIM.
Princess, and Princes. HE is real and HE does love us, and HE does motivate others to walk in our lives to re-enforce what HE has been saying all along. HE really does want to fill us with HIS joy, and HIS peace, and my favorite- HE wants to dance!! So once again like so many other times..Ask HIM whatever is on your heart, be pleasantly surprised at HIS answers, and the love that HE will pour out just for YOU. I am so glad that HE sees what HE is changing us into, and does not get hung up on the thing we are now. Whew! What a relief! 🙂

Oh how I’m so glad that He sees the finished Stephanie! Love this post.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Love this post. You just have to know too although I knew nothing of what has been going on, God has had you on my heart a lot here lately too. I have been lifting you up because of that. I think it is so cool to know when we are down or just need a picture of God that He dispatches intercessors to pray for them. I am sure I am not the only one He did that too but you should feel so loved at that fact. He prompted people to be praying. I LOVE how He does that. He does whatever it takes to get us to Him. He is so awesome! You are such a blessing and have blessed me so.
You are loved by me and by Him!!! I too have been way too busy lately with ministry type things that could easily cause my relationship with Jesus to take a back seat. Fortunately I am in tune with that and make the extra effort to keep that relationship first. Thanks for the reminder, though. Hope you have an awesome week!!
Tunnel Vision? Oh yeah, mine hasn’t been the hectic busy kind, but the hurting heart kind that I could not do anything to fix. My twin sons who are 36 had a falling out about 6 years ago and have been avoiding each other out of pride. We all live within 15 minutes of eachother and yet it has been so heavy on my heart especially when the Holidays are coming. I had even thought of not having them since every year we are not together. I watch my grandson 3 days a week and this past week his dad has picked him up after work and my other son has “just happened” to stop by after work and be here at the same time.
They have been talking, and I go outside so I don’t get tempted to listen in and think of ways to fix it. The Lord has really had me step aside and watch Him work it out. They both are prideful ever since they shared a womb!!:) Friday I found out that we will all be together at Thanksgiving!!!
Oh my Gosh, I feel like dancing and I don’t even know how. I had told the Lord that when they were kids, I could do time out, sit down and talk it out, something to end the feud. Being adults, I had to just watch and just pray. I had to turn it over to Him and honestly had just about given up.
Then BOOM, out of nowhere, this past two weeks have been birthing a turn around and the Lord has used my grandson being here to draw these two brothers back together. I am so blessed right now I can hardly sit here to type. My grandson is such a blessing to me anyway, and another baby is coming in November, and now this pushes me right over the top with Joy. This is so BIG for me I almost know what a princess might feel like!!! I am looking at my “Tiara” as I sit here Darla. I know it was someone else’s prayers helping this situation of heartbreak be resolved. And since I can’t dance( my foursquare upbringing:) Ugh, I think I will just get up and do the “Satan Stomp” because he thought he really had me on this one.
God is so Good and I know He loves me because He has mended my small family for me in such a Huge Way. I am forever grateful to Him and for your encouragement. So sorry this is so long, but I am so happy and this is really my SHORT version. I love you Darla and boy, if we are all blessed this week like this, LOOK OUT!!!
Love you, Laurie in Ca.
Awwww yall are so sweet!
LL-I reread your comment and I will dance that stomp with you! We are loved and blessed…sometimes we just forget it. I know that when seeking the Lord with all our heart, HE gives us the desires of our hearts! Awesome how HE does that! Princess to Princess…you rock girl!
My oldest, Rachel at oneDirection, asked me about you the other day when you left a comment on her blog. So I told her…”Darla is one of the most “real” people I have ever met. Passionate about God and His people! I have never read one negative thing from her. She compels me to see the best in the world and people.”
Friend, this is truly how I feel about you. You are a very, very big blessing – and you are so beautiful!
What a beautiful and encouraging post! Thank you!
He is so good and how He loves us! Thank you for the post.
I love how He talks to us through others to confirm what He’s put on our hearts! I just love it and I wanna dance too!
Blessings in Christ–
Thanks for this great reminder post about how great God is!
