TRUST WITHOUT SEEING

DANIEL 6:23

THE KING WAS OVERJOYED AND GAVE ORDERS TO LIFT DANIEL OUT OF THE DEN. AND WHEN DANIEL WAS LIFTED FROM THE DEN NO WOUND WAS FOUND ON HIM, BECAUSE HE HAD TRUSTED IN HIS GOD. 

Hi my “ROOSTERS” (AKA Supporters) LOL just so you know I’m going to try keeping this blog short because it’s really late lol.  I know it is terrible that it has been almost a year since I wrote anything, but my house has been in pure chaos the past, gosh at least 5 months. My  parents did some remodeling. What was supposed to be a small project with just a bit of paint and new furniture turned into a total remodel. Because once they started freshening things up they couldn’t help themselves but do more and more and more LOL.  So what was supposed to be a 2 week project turned into a 5 month project. We officially just finished. But because our house was in such chaos I couldn’t get much done, every time I tried to concentrate I’d hear saws running hammers pounding and it just wasn’t working for me, so eventually I just gave up trying LOL. I am the type of person that needs complete silence when I’m writing and there was no way I was getting that during this project. On a positive side though our house looks amazing! LOL.

So can you believe I’m another year older!!! (31) I honestly can’t believe it myself. I honestly think this year was a bigger impact on me than my 30th. I woke up this morning of course being so grateful. As I was looking on Facebook this morning reading all my messages. I seen my cousin Kristi posted a video of me entering my 30th birthday party from last year. And as amazing as that birthday was because it truly was AMAZING!!! But as I was watching that I just couldn’t help but start crying. Because to think back to than and remembering the place I was in back than. Being sick as a dog and feeling so exhausted from it all that, it’s not that I didn’t want to fight, but I just didn’t know if I physically could anymore and looking at myself and seeing how swollen I was and remembering how uncomfortable I felt, and just thinking about the full picture from where I was than to where I am now.  It just made me feel that much more thankful to be where I’m at now. To think of how the Lord carried me through, because he did. I truly believe last year could have easily been the end for me, but because I TRUSTED in him I was able to once again come out the other side. Because I didn’t fear, fear, I was able to get thru it. There were times I may have felt overwhelmed and fearful but I never lived in fear, and yes there’s a difference between living in fear and at times being fearful. The difference is when your in fear that means your letting it control your life your letting it effect your every move, your every moment, I have never done that. At times I may have heard a dr diagnose something over me and think oh crap what now. And I may have had to take a deep breath here and there. But I never let it cripple me I never let it get me to the point of depression or to a point where I let it stop me from enjoying life. I mean even that day at that birthday party. I had so many things running through my head but I didn’t let it stop me from taking it all in and enjoying that night and enjoying my family and all the hard work they put in. I just took a deep breath and said ok Lord we can do this let’s go have some fun. And I did, I didn’t allow myself to even think of how sick I really was, I just blocked it out and enjoyed my night.

I have a friend who asks me all the time how could I live in a world where children are dying and just pure evilness is everywhere.  But my question to him is how could I not believe? How can I be me and not believe? Until your in my shoes until your laying in a hospital bed gasping for air and medically categorized as “dying” which I have been at that point several times! And until you are laying there thinking your taking your last breath and than you physically feel the LORD breath life back into you, back into your body, your lungs, your soul! Your not going to understand!

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure you all are reading this going omg we have to be on our death bed to know the love of Christ, what is this girl crazy! No andI’m not saying everyone has to physically be dying to understand his love. But also in a way we do, in a way whenever we finally take that step to come to Christ and trust in him and allow him to be your guide sort of speak, when we finally take that step we’re all dying. Because usually when we get to that point of opening our eyes to see his love truly see, were in a lost and hopeless place, we wouldn’t be looking for him otherwise, that’s just reality!

I can’t promise you all that the LORD gave me some big “word” that this next year is going to be perfect,  I can’t even promise I’ll make it another year. But  but but but I can promise you I’m going to walk in trust and believe I’m going to live and thrive and accomplish what I know he’s called me to do. In Proverbs the Bible says hes given us ears to hear and eyes to see. So let’s walk that out, let’s look for the good things in life that the LORD has blessed us with. Because let me tell you there are so many wonderful things the Lord has gifted us with, not only do we have him but everything that goes along with that. Our loved ones, the sun, the sky, the fresh air that we feel when we walk out of the house. Instead of dwelling on the pain and negativity in life focus on the positive, focus on your dreams and the dreams God has for you. There’s so much life to live so live it PEOPLE!

The song above is a song by Beckah Shae and it fits perfectly with this blog because it’s all about trust. So to Beckah, thank you for allowing me to post whatever music of yours I’d like! (Yes people I did not post this without her knowledge. She gave me permission to use any song of hers I’d like whenever I’d like) SO THANK YOU BECKAH AND JACK SHOCKLEE!!! ❤️

A little update on my book, just so everyone knows, even though I haven’t blogged, I did get some stuff for the book done. I was determined to not let anything stop me from that! I’m actually calling the publisher this week to officially sign the papers and officially hire them. So once that is all done the book should come out pretty fast and I have all you to thank for this. Again this book would not be getting published if I didn’t have your support! And I am sorry it took so long to get this going, but like I told my family. The money I’m investing is not my money, it’s yours, you all donated what you could to get this book published. So I wanted to take it slow and know your money was not going to waste. I wanted to make sure whoever published this understood my desires and my heart and someone who would be willing to be patient with all my medical issues.

I do want to show you all I was not lying or exaggerating a few months ago when I told you all how much this book would cost. I took a screenshot of the price list the publisher gave me. Let me add this guys prices were the lowest of anyone I talked to. I cut the company logo out purposely because, well I don’t want to give everything away LOL, but I do want to show you the prices so that you know this is not a cheap process and any dime I get is going towards all this. And for me to fully be completely comfortable financially without having to hold my breath, in a perfect world I’d still like another $1,500 to have on hand for this process. But I’m not letting that stop me from pulling the trigger on this baby! I’m just going to believe the Lord will bring those funds in over time. Thankfully the company is willing to work with me and I do not need to give them everything up front. IMG_1878

. This is all their packages and unfortunately I can’t go with the $4,399 package for various reasons but trust me that package will just never work I’ll never get anywhere with the book if I chose that package plus it be a lot hard for me to publish with that package, because basically the only thing that package does is put your book together and prints it out and unfortunately I need more help than that. I  do not know how to promote this, I do not know any of the legal stuff you have to do for this book and there’s a few other major things this company can do if I invested for the bigger package. So my focus or goal is the $6,999 package!
