The Journey Thus Far...


This past year if you've read here at all you will know that I've gone on and on a lot about being Fearless

And God in His godly fashion gave me many opportunities to try this new word out. 

  • I started guest posting (yikes) and started accepting guest posts.
  • Went back and forth about whether or not to add ads to the site, there are some, but will probably be none here shortly. 
  • I joined a Mastermind group
  • Joined a critique group
  • Made an mp3 for a book launch (which I hope to make available here soon)
  • Have some book ideas (which I said I would never do, but you know, never say never)

I don't feel as stuck as I did when I started out 2013. I knew I wanted to write more consistently, which I kinda sorta did. I knew I wanted to accept guest posts and do some guest posting (which was scareee) but I did it anyways. And God opened up opportunities to write, to be around godly encouraging women, to be in groups that helped my writing and gave me ideas and tips to be a better "blogger."

It's through one of these groups (a Mastermind group) that I met and became friends with the ladies that now make up the God-Sized Dreams website. 

Also, God laid the importance of community on my heart. As much as I would love to do things alone and be the lone ranger, I can't. That's not how God made me...us.

In order for our dreams to work we have to let others in. And I think that has been the biggest thing I've learned. 

I need others and maybe, they need me too.

I'm already thinking and praying about what my word for 2014 will be, do you know yours?

I'll post all about it when I've officially chosen it. 

I hope for 2014 that I continue to forge ahead fearlessly. God has already laid some things on my heart and I'm already looking for the exit. Watching how Christine, the brain behind the new website, fought through her fears and kept moving forward has been such an inspiration to me. Getting to see behind the scenes and how much prayer and faith is really involved in making your dreams comes true was a great learning experience for me. 

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.  
Zechariah 4:6 (NIV)  
This is the founding verse of the website and it really says it all. It's not by my might or strength that I will accomplish anything, but through his.

Regardless of what lies ahead "I know who goes before me I know who stands behind, the God of angel armies is always by my side!"(Chris Tomlin-Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies) )








Now, who's up for  a link up?? Come and share what God has been doing in your life this past year or just read, whatever, it's up to you! Either way you are welcome and we'd love to have you!! If you don't have a blog, post in the comments, I'll see you there!

And One Dream Is Realized



Blossom Bunkhouse


I'm so happy to finally be able to tell y'all what I've been working on behind the scenes for the last several months with several of my God-Sized dreamer sisters.

A new website!!

We came together in a way that only God himself could do. So randomly yet not at all. This is one of those things that happens and then you look back and go "Oh, Wow! God did this and I get to be a part of it."

A dream for a site where dreamers could come and write and read and share what God was putting on their own hearts, was planted in a fellow sister's heart and she bravely asked, "Who was in?"

Of course I was!

The website God Sized Dreams, is a spin off from Holley Gerth's book You're Made For a God Sized Dream. It's a place to come and tell your stories or be inspired by others and know that you are not alone on the journey of realizing your God-sized dreams.

We're all on the journey and this website, that I'm so humbly blessed to be a part of, has already encouraged me so much, and I know it will do the same for you!

And tomorrow, there's a link up!

Come link up your posts on what God has done this past year in your own journey. Is where you are now where you thought you'd be? Maybe...maybe not, but that's ok. Come tell your story and read where others are at on their journey.

There's room for everyone, so tell a friend!

It's a beautiful place, I hope you will plan to stay awhile, click around and read a few stories. I know somewhere tucked beneath the pages you will find a story that will make you stop and think, "this is where I'm at, she knows what I'm talking about and how I'm feeling." 





God Sized Dreams is a site for dreamers by dreamers. Our prayer is that you will come and let your dreams take wind and set sail all for His Glory.

Even If (blank) Happens I'm Still Going To Worship

Be careful what you wish for, especially when it comes to God!

Want patience? He'll give you plenty of opportunities to flex that patience muscle.

Want to trust Him and depend on Him no matter what life brings? Want a faith that can't be quenched by life's battles? You will think you have become a modern day Job.

God's funny and quirky in ways that aren't always amusing to us. His ways are definitely not ours!

So, a couple of years ago when my husband and I found ourselves in a pickle. It was a testing of faith that I had never gone through before.

I knew it was a make or break it faith moment.

We were living in Iowa (beautiful state with beautiful people) and still owned our home in sweet home Alabama. We were renting it out when a tornado came busting through the area and did a good bit of damage. That's not what we were even stressed about. Thankfully we had an amazing realtor and insurance.



We were stressed over a balloon payment coming due (yep one of those=nightmare)at the end of the summer. Renters were moving out and we had NO luck not even any nibbles on trying to sell it.

We were looking at possible foreclosure or at the very least short selling the sucker.  This house was causing so many problems financially and within our marriage all I wanted was to be done with it. We were fighting all the time about what to do, and where were we going to get the money etc.

We had worked so hard to be debt free, to stay on top of our bills and have good credit and live within our means.

And due to circumstances beyond our control that was all about to change.

Would we have to declare bankruptcy? Would we really have to join the thousands of other home owners that were forced to foreclose? Where was God in all this? Why wasn't He opening doors and preventing all of this from happening?

I was tired and quite frankly beaten down. We had done all we could do with what we had. Now it was up to God to step in...or not.

Through all my praying and fretting I had an epiphany of sorts. So what if the house was foreclosed on? If that's the worst thing that ever happens to us then, fine, so be it. We had our health. Our children were alive and doing well. We had each other and our extended families.

Take the house!

I am done thinking about it, fighting about it, crying and worrying over it. DONE.

I had gotten to a point that even if everything gets stripped away, even if we are forced to walk this painful road.

I was still going going to worship and believe.

Even if..

we lose our home,

our credit is ruined,

we go into debt.

Even if the worst case scenario really happens and I am pressed in on every side and feel like the walls are caving in I am not crushed. And I will not shrink back like someone that has no faith
 (2Cor 4:8).

People will either grow closer to God or further away when hard times come. Personally, I can't imagine getting through a trial being away from God. I've had my moments of sulking and being angry and refusing to talk to Him for a while, but quickly realized life doesn't work very well without Him and I always came back.

This world can take our homes our possessions, even our lives but that's all it can take. It doesn't feel good when crappy things happen, in fact it downright sucks.

Finding all the little things we have to be thankful for makes all the difference. Along with real belief in your faith.

As it turns out I feel like our act of surrender and saying, Ok God, if this is your plan I know you will see us through it. I don't like, at all. But if this is the road we are to walk we will walk it.

Was the key to unlocking the door for God to move.

Surrender.

That's what it took. Total and complete surrender.

We were able to refinance at the last moment, and we were able to sell the house. It sold for much lower than we needed, but it sold. While we're still dealing with the fall out of the loss, we are nothing but thankful.

The holiday seasons can be stressful, money is tight, or we've lost loved ones. I pray that whatever you are going through, you will be able to lay it all down and say as we did, I trust you, I believe, and even if this horrible rotten thing happens, I will still worship and believe.

"The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."(John 10:10)

The devil only wants to mess with us and do everything he can to steal our peace, I pray this Christmas season he doesn't get away with it.  Jesus came to take away our fears and worries. Let His peace surround your heart and mind in your season of waiting.

One of our favorite songs to listen to in the wait is this song by John Waller "While I'm Waiting"you may remember it from the movie FireProof :)

Draw a Circle


They gave us each a piece of chalk. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with it. But the bible study leader explained she got the idea of the chalk from the book The Circle Maker.

The idea is to draw a circle around the things in your life you want to pray about.

I sat there thinking about how my kids would react if I took a piece of chalk to them, or even my husband. Yep, they'd think I'd lost it for sure!

What I decided was to make a big circle on my front porch around the welcome mat to the door. My pink chalk didn't really show up against the red brick of the porch floor, but I knew it was there.


























My prayer is for peace, love, and joy. To not only be in me and my family, but for it to overflow to everyone that crosses that welcome mat threshold.

God had been impressing this upon my heart that it could be possible, all these things, but they had to start with me first.

Let there be peace and let it start with me.

Let there be love and let it start with me.

Let there be joy and let it start with me.

It all starts with me...





The holiday's are a perfect time for me to live these truths. As most of us know there are and always will be those in our lives that stretch the boundaries of our peace and patience.

But what if instead of reacting to them the way we want we stop and say "God let there be love in this relationship, and let it start with ME. Show me how to love this person right now in this moment."

I felt the holy spirit whisper, It starts with you several times over Thanksgiving. Whenever I felt frustrated or impatient and didn't want to show grace, It starts with you, would blow over my heart. It stopped me cold a few times ( believe me, it frustrated the dickens out of me too).

But when I forced myself to listen and obey...

Four simple words would change my heart and perspective, and I could feel the shift.

I became more deliberate and breathed deep to react slow.

As the holiday season draws nearer let us strive to be different in this world of need more- want more.

Let us draw a circle around our hearts, homes, friends, and neighbors. Let us be Jesus with skin on to them. And as we fill their cup may He fill ours.

It's tempting to be frazzled and not very dazzled by the lights, music, and endless activities. But in our hearts there can be peace if we choose. The deliberate choice to slow down and know that we don't have to race in order to get ready for Christmas, because it's already come to us, thousands of years ago as a baby born in a manger.

He had no audience, no arrival music or twinkling trees.He came humbly and simply.

He grew up and lived out Love. He's the best example of love, really.

So, Please God, Let It Start With Me. Because, really, change, it always starts with you and me.

Just Enough Brave


Life has a way of creeping up on us and sometimes overwhelming us before we know it. Life, circumstances, people they don't always go the way we plan.

I apologize if this place has been a little dark and gloomy lately it's not what I it to be. 
I want it to be real and authentic but sometimes it can be a little too much so.

I read a verse this morning from YouVersion app and it completely described how I feel right now.

Matthew 5:3 "You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule."
In every situation when we get out of the way and let God do His thing we give ourselves margin, we give others margin, room, to have faults. 

God will meet us where we are every time. Starting a new job last month was terrifying. It was more than I expected. I was overwhelmed by the number of things that I needed to know but didn't. By the number of calls I was getting on a daily basis and people wanting answers that I just didn't have. Being on the phone for 8 hrs a day with two 15 min breaks and a 30 min break for lunch put me at a level of high alert sweaty fear.

I depended heavily on my fearless verses and my husband reminding me each day that I wouldn't die, it was going to be ok. I believe the devil smelled my weakness from a mile away and planned a perfect attack every single blessed morning. 

But you know what? God saw me too. And He gave me just enough brave for each day. My husband was right I didn't die from the calls, snarkiness, yelling, and yes the occasional cussing me out for something I had nothing to do with. In fact I grew more resolved not to quit and see this job to it's end.

He gave me courage for each day, right when I needed it. Each day I have grown more confident in my ability and through it all my attitude has stayed positive (mostly). My attitude has helped the most and has been the most helpful in putting out the daily fires. 

Cause, really, it's hard to yell at someone when they are being empathetic and agreeing with you, even if it is to keep from getting yelled at :)

This situation has shown me that I can do hard things, and it won't kill me. God really will give me just enough brave for the step I'm on, I have no reason to be afraid. None, at all!

Sometimes we make up theses imaginary scenarios in our heads of how things are going to go, and we just know things aren't going to go well or we are going to end up looking like idiots.

That fear keeps us from doing the hard things that we need to do in order to make progress. When we push forward even with fear nipping at our heels we are letting it know that it's not the boss of us. We may always be afraid and always feel the fear, it's like a little trusty  travel companion, though unwelcome, it reminds us that we are on the right path. We are never more like mighty warriors when we don't give in to it and keep going.

Fear and anxiety may be my constant companions, but I don't have to let it define me anymore. I don't have to let it rule my life and decisions. And you don't either.

While this job may be coming to an end this week, I'm thankful to have had it for so many reasons. It pushed me beyond my comfort zone, I brushed up on my customer service skills, and it paid for our Christmas bills (big YAY!!), plus all of the funny stories that I get to tell about the cra cra people out there! Good stuff.

I hope to be back writing more regularly after the holidays I have a ton of posts in my head that are screaming to get out all at once.

What about you? What hard things have you done lately or are about to do? You can do hard things too, friends ( I think that need to be on a t shirt, what do you think?).

If you have prayer requests please leave them in the comments if you feel comfortable or drop me an email. I'd be honored to pray with you through your hard times.

Truth-FMF

Five Minute Friday

Truth-
Truth is that I started working full time this week at a job that seemed perfect....and I hate it! And I feel guilty. Guilty because I've prayed and cried out to God for work and he answered. And now all I want to do is quit. (Which I am, bc I have to go home for Thanksgiving and need off, but being new I have no vacay or personal days stored up. I will give my two weeks notice today and resume job hunting after the holidays (pray for me?) )

I hate that I should love and appreciate it because I get to work from home while the kids are at school, but I don't. I feel ungrateful and discontent. Others would give anything for a job like this, so why can't I be happy?

Truth is right now I'm still in a place of figuring out my place. I've been in our new home for a year now and it still does not feel like home. I'm wondering when this grey cloud is finally going to lift and I will feel like me again.

Someone that likes her life, makes the most of bad situations, tries to find the good in everyone and everything.

I still had some posts left in my Fearless series, but I haven't had a moment to really sit with my thoughts and write since this time last Friday. So the series is hanging on day 22 right now. It may stay there...end there.

I got further than I thought I would so I'm proud of that.

This is the truth of my life right now. It's different than I thought it would be. I'm not really liking it.

Thankfully God holds the hand of the needy, and I'm so very needy right now.

And I'm thankful for new friends, online friends, and far away real life friends, and family that are praying for me and encouraging me.

I have so much to be thankful for.

FMF-Grace (Day 22)

Five Minute Friday Grace...

What is the fear in grace? Is it the pride that we may be wrong when we give it? That we will be the ones looking foolish for trusting with our heart and not our heads.

I need so much grace every day. I know how weak I am and would not make it through but not for the grace of God. Grace to get over myself. Grace to love the unlovable. Grace to swallow my pride when I want to shout and scream that I know what I'm doing and you are wrong!

So much grace.

What is holding me back from giving what I have received? That is the question I am asking myself. Why do I find it so hard to forgive those that hurt me when Jesus was tortured and killed for all the ways I've hurt him. And he did so willingly and lovingly.                                                                                          

Without fear.
Without withholding.
He saw the bigger picture.

I pray I can see it too.


STOP. writing for 5 minutes (unedited-ok, very little editing ;) grace, please) on grace with Lisa Jo Baker and the rest of the FMF writing community.

Why I Want To Stop Being Fearless (Day 21)




Oh my, I've just come off a trying day. I have started new job that has my nerves all in a tizzy. I am a customer service rep for a high end dept store now. Everything about it screams perfect...except the reality of it.

I get to stay home (in my pj's if I want) and work in my home office. I take calls and help people out the best I can with their questions while my kiddies are at school. I get off about the time they are getting off the bus. See? Perfect.

Except, today was my first real day taking calls, and I wasn't expecting to take calls. I'm still in what they are calling a new hire training period. I'm supposed to be doing more training and reading than actual talking on the phone. So, when they said about two hours into my shift you're all set up you need to take calls the rest of your time. I FREAKED OUT on the inside. Are they serious?! They trust me to start taking calls?! For real?!

I can't take calls, I'm not ready! Why can't I just sit here and keep reading?? Reading is safe and not scary. Reading isn't going to get angry and yell when I don't know what in the heck I'm doing.

But, I had to take calls. I logged into the phone software and stared at the take calls button for a good 10 minutes before actually hitting it. I prayed, begged, pleaded, for God to zap me with courage, because I was sweating with fear.

What was I thinking?! This job isn't for me! I've trained, I've passed the tests, but training and passing tests is completely different than real life actual on the job doing it for real.

I want to be fearless, but for the love of all that is good in this world I really thought I might die at my computer desk today. This fearless living is not for me. Why does it have to be so hard??

I want safety and security. Not this. I want to feel comfortable in knowing that whatever I'm going to do I am going to do a good job. Not crash and burn with my first call. (Which I almost did, but thankfully they have an awesome support system for newbies like me that were willing to help me on every some calls.) And quite frankly I was honest with my first couple victims and told them I was brand spanking new, and they were my first ever customers so maybe they would show me some mercy and not get impatient. They did, they were nice. Even when I accidently disconnected one (whoops).

Fearless...it's putting me in situations that make me uncomfortable and are stretching me in ways I don't like.

Why do I have to be Fearless anyways? It's just something I thought I would give a go at. Now look what I've gone and done.

However.

I may not like this fearless living, I may actually hate it. But I am excited about what it's preparing me for. I may need these customer service skills one day. I'm just thankful I have the weekend to collect myself before I start again on Monday. My nerves are thanking me anyway.

Now I'm off to take my son trick or treating and eat enough chocolate to put me in a nice little coma.

Night, friends!

If you think about it, wanna say a prayer? I could definitely use them!!

Fear In Numbers (Day 20)

'Numbers in a City: New Haven / 1997 / SML' photo (c) 2012, See-ming Lee - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/


Together we can cheer each other on or tear each other down.

When we have the support of our people around us we feel like we can do anything. Accomplish any goal, chase after any dream, climb any mountain.

One kind-encouraging word from someone may be what we need today to finish a project strong, can we be that someone today?

Fear, just like encouragement flourishes in numbers too. When you have your people doubting what you are doing and telling you it just isn't going to work, give up. You're more inclined to go with the group, instead of what you know God is telling you.

In Gideon, we see God a couple of times telling Gideon to take people with him, when he asked him to do something. Why? Maybe because he knew courage can be found in numbers. If we have those around us supporting us, we will feel courageous.

But on the opposite coin, lies fear.If you have a group of fearful people not sure that they can accomplish something, they may turn and run instead of staying to fight.
"The Lord said to Gideon: “You have too many people on your side. If I were to hand Midian over to them, the Israelites might claim credit for themselves rather than for me, thinking, We saved ourselves. So now, announce in the people’s hearing, ‘Anyone who is afraid or unsteady may return home from Gideon’s mountain.’” At this, twenty-two thousand people went home, and ten thousand were left."(Judges 7:2,3)

"So Gideon took ten of his servants and did just as the Lord had told him. But because he was too afraid of his household and the townspeople to do it during the day, he did it at night." (Judges 6:27)

"But if you’re afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah, and you’ll hear what they are saying. May you then get the courage to attack the camp.” So he went down with his servant Purah to the outpost of the armies that were in the camp." (Judges 7:10,11)
God dwindled his army of thousands to 300. Could it have been because too many men would get to talking about how they are never going to win this war and they should go home before they all get killed?

Fear and insecurity can spread like a wildfire in a group. God dwindled the group down to not only show his people that He would win this war for them, but to also keep their spirits up before it could get taken down.

There may be fear in numbers but, there can also be courage in numbers too.

When we believe that with our faith we can do anything that God asks of us it doesn't matter who agrees or not. God will bring the right people into our lives to encourage us. To affirm and confirm His plans.

We just need to be obedient. And live Fearless (better said than done, I know, but we can do it!)

Live fearless, my friends.

Die Many Deaths (Day19)

'sun grass' photo (c) 2010, David DeHetre - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

"Cowards die many times before their deaths. The valiant never taste of death but once."                    (William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar)


I was looking up quotes on fear that I could share on here today and this one caught my breath in my throat. How true it is. 

Facing fear and dealing with fear almost feels like a death. It can make you feel like you want to die at least.

"Is it that they fear the pain of death, or could it be they fear the joy of life?"                                                                         (TOAD THE WET SPROCKET, Pray Your Gods)


Do we fear celebrating our victories because that means we aren't being "humble?" If all gifts are given from above and we excel in those gifts shouldn't we be happy and rejoice...and rejoice with others?

Fear can hold us back from living the lives we were meant to live, and I think each day we need to make the choice. Hold back or Live fully.

I know what I'm ready to do, do you?

Walk fearless, my friends

You Have a Warrior Fighting for You (Day 17)




The Lord your God is in your midst—a warrior bringing victory.
        He will create calm with his love;
        he will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)


I pray that your weekend is full of rest, peace, and laughter. And of course, Fearlessness!

Whom Shall I Fear? (Day 16)



One of my favorite author's and speakers is Sheri Rose Shepherd.

The following is an excerpt from one of her daily devotionals I get through email.

My Princess,
Are you bound up in darkness and fear? Come to Me and tell Me what you’re afraid of. Is it the future? Your health? Your circumstances? Your finances? Your security? Don’t you know that I am Creator and King of all? I own all the resources in the universe. Nothing is beyond My knowledge or My power...


What are we afraid of? Do we trust God enough to give over our fears? He can and will do abundantly more than we can ever ask for(Ephesians 3:20).

"Light, space, zest—    that’s God!So, with him on my side I’m fearless,    afraid of no one and nothing."(Psalm 27:1)

I read something this week on Jon Acuff's blog that I wanted to share, this is for those of us that don't like the self promotion side of writing. Don't Write a Book

Praise Defeats Fear:: (Day 15)




Did you know praise defeats fear?

Right now on Spotify I'm listening to a mix of Matt Maher, Mandisa, Laura Story and more. All have songs on praising God in the middle of our storms and fears. Have you heard that Overcomer song by Mandisa? Take a listen here if you haven't yet.

In all of the battles in the Bible why does God have them praise and blow horns first before the battle even begins?

Because this battle we fight day to day is not ours it's His and He intends to win. Every. Time.

The praise comes first because we are declaring that God is with us, and despite how small we may be we have a force on our side that can't be defeated.

We may have a life with plans that don't make any sense. But God, he plans to use them. If He can win a war with jars, torches, and trumpets (Judges 7:15) just think what He can do for us, today.

Let's defeat the fear and anxiety in our lives by hitting our knees and thanking God for the battle and  walk in faith that we that we are meant to be overcomers.

"They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshiped him." Matt 2:10


    "Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I've told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I've conquered the world.” John 16:33

If We Knew :: (Day 14)

'Lions & Lion Cubs' photo (c) 2008, fortherock - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/
If we only knew what the enemy knows about us we would never walk fearful or weak in this world again.

He uses the only devices he has, lies, fear, intimidation. He knows the plans for us don't stand a chance. The One that is in us is greater than the one in the world, him (1Jn 4:4).

What if we could get a glimpse of who we really are? I think we would be more confident and have less excuses for not doing things.

The voices of You can't, You shouldn't, You'll never...will disappear

They will have no authority over you any longer.

In the Bible it says we have an enemy. An enemy who prowls around us looking for our weak spots so that he can pounce.

"Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

Remember, Noah built an ark when they were in the middle of a drought. Moses doubted and begged God to use someone else.

And my favorite least likely hero, Gideon. Weakest in the family of the weakest clan.

When you start to wonder what you are doing and if you are going to look like a fool. Keep going. Maybe you will look foolish, but at least you are being obedient. And to God that counts for a whole lot.
"If you're not willing to look goofy in the eyes of others at some point, you will never make it to your God-sized dream."(Holly Gerth, Opening the Door to Your God-Sized Dream Devo)
 We are mighty warriors, it's time we started acting like it!

Walk Fearless, my friends.

I Want To Be Brave:: (Day 13)


LOVE this song, it's about being brave and being who you are. Sara Bereilles is one of my favorite new artists.

Read the lyrics and watch the video below. I hope you enjoy!



Everybody’s been there, 
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is


Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave


With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave


And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Walk Fearless, my friends!
