Bearer of Light: Kingdom Ambassador

I love this!

Learning To Live For Him

I started to write a post over a year ago when i first saw this picture floating around on Facebook.  For some reason though, I didn’t. However, tonight as I deciding what to write about, I was drawn back to this draft. One of the writing prompts for this week’s blog  hop are the two word’s Kingdom Ambassador.  As I was “marinating” on what it means to be a Kingdom Ambassador this picture came to mind.

Missing you Daddy!

How to begin this? Who would have thought that it would be this hard? There are times when it does not seem like you are gone. 4 years seems unrealistic. I know I was not the best daughter and sometimes I did things to get on your last nerve. But I appreciated everything that you ever did. I thank you for all that you taught me that took me a little longer to grasp and understand. I thank God for giving me you for the time that I was allowed. I can only hope that I am still making you proud! Happy Father’s day!

Quiet Places

I have learned that it is hard to think effectively if there are  a lot of other things going on. I used to be able to work though and be unphased. But some where down the line of my life, it changed.

If I am working on something, I can’t have side conversations happening. It is like there is a part of me that wants to go and close all the doors and place in headphones and zone out.

I tend to do that. I get so much done. But that is not productive in a work environment where you are the go to person. So are there days when I grin and bear it? Yes!

I have found that there are times when in my personal life I have a lot of clutter and things that make more noise then they need too. I try to have a small circle of people that I really deal with. I find it becoming smaller and smaller. I pray for the Lord not to seclude the wrong people but I can’t have emptiness and sadness over people and events.  I know I will have to revisit this topic another time but I just know that it takes a lot for me to cut people and situations off.

That is why I do careful consideration before I do. Once I cut that switch off, it takes the grace of God (literally) to move for me to reconnect.
