The Source


My heart was racing and my mind was running a mile a minute with thoughts and images. I needed things to slow down but they wouldn’t. I tried to rest my body and lay quietly in the dark. When that didn’t work, I tried to distract myself with Facebook. But I was not interested in that. So, I opened my bible app and looked for a reading plan. After reading scriptures and talking to God, peace began to surround me. I was able to drift off to sleep.

Then the morning came. I was totally distracted. I was moving on auto-pilot. I hungered for the Word, so I completed my bible study lesson for the day. Oh, the similarities between Haman and I in Esther 5:9-10. Haman was happy then enraged. Nevertheless, he held his composure and passed. Likewise, I chose to move forward and to take control of my actions and reactions. Every thought is not meant to be verbalized. God always delivers a word just for you at the exact moment that you need it. You just have to be open and willing to receive it.  

The words of Kirk Franklin played over and over in my mind and lifted the heaviness from my heart. “I know that I can make it. I know that I can stand. No matter what may come my way, my life is in your hands. With Jesus, I can take it. With Him I know I can stand.” I am not alone on this life journey and neither are you. God knows what you’re going through and He wants to provide you with comfort.

Who do you turn to in the time of need?

The Lesson from the B

The B led me to a blessing......
The B word really is not a bad word. 
BUDGETS are such a blessing even though sometimes they feel like a curse. 
When the July budget was completed, it was zeroed out. This means that we intended for our checking account to hit $0 by the end of the month. 
When a budget hits $0 there is a likelihood that things can get tight, especially if you fail to account for something along the way. 
And of course, I failed to account for something. I failed to consider the need to travel down to Daytona Beach and back, not once but twice, during the month. 😓
Although it is not a long ride from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach, any vehicle used for travel would not be able to complete the mission on fumes alone. The 92-mile drive needed fuel for the four trips. 
That's when it happened. 
I stopped for gas and before I even made it to an open pump, the yellow signage immediately caught my attention. Yes, that is E85. According to Wikipedia, it is an ethanol blend…
