When you were a kid, who did you call when you faced a situation that was overwhelming or challenging? In most cases, you ran to your Mom or Dad. [Ideally] they provided safety and protection. They were big and strong and knew exactly how to take care of us. They would protect us from any danger or harm. They would kiss our boo-boos and everything would be all better. They were often our shelter and place of refuge. Continue reading
I will add to this occasionally because I want to share a few things I have learned over the years. As many of you know, I came to the Lord back in 1979, and I realize that it hasn’t been that long ago, but over the years the Spirit of God has taught me a few things that I want to share with you.

I want you to turn the clock back a little and think about what it was like as you grew up. Whenever you faced a time of difficulty or something that was frustrating or a situation that left you confused, who did you run to? Was it your Mom or Dad?

When you were lost, did they protect you from any danger or harm? They would kiss your boo-boos and everything would be all better. As a child, they were your shelter and place of refuge, right?

August third was the anniversary of the marvelous day I was born. lol. When I say this, most people (who are outside of true understanding, lol) will roll their eyes. But, I always want my words to actually “mean” what they mean!

I am not a “Diabetic,” despite diabetes attacking my body. I am NOT my disease! Continue reading
