Tabbie Just Breathe

So do you ever have those times when you just have to remind yourself just to breathe...
This week is one of those...
Tabbie just breathe...

I can not believe I am packing to go to Thailand for two weeks. I can not believe I get to go there and embrace those precious children with God's love. I can not wait to wrap my arms around those babies and love them to pieces. I can not wait. I can not wait to find out what God is up to and what He has in store for this trip and my life. I can not believe I get to do this with my brother who is also called into Children's Ministry. He means the world to me and to get to do this together just blesses me beyond! This trip could not be more perfect!!

Father I know YOU opened this door. You have blessed me in this in more ways than one!!! This is incredible and I Thank YOU for it all!! I am absolutely in AWE of all that you are doing in my life!!! I know you have big things in store for me from start to finish on this trip. I can not wait to serve YOU!! Thank You Father for who you are in my life. Thank You that You know what is best for me and You have the perfect timing. Thank You Heavenly Father for amazing me everyday with who you are and how You LOVE me. You are so good to me.

Tabbie just breathe...

Father you are up to so much more...and I will not stand in Your way...I will be obediant to you...I will stand where you have asked me to stand...I now believe but I will be obediant...I can not wait to see how this unfolds...You are my driver Lord...and I will ride with You anywhere You take me...I trust You...I believe in You...I will follow You...I will be still and know that YOU are God...I will not move...You are my Father and I will listen to You and obey You...You have told me You are writing my story...You are the Author and Finisher...I have dropped the pen...I will not pick it back up...I LOVE YOU MY FATHER...MY HEART IS TO OBEY YOU AND TRUST YOU AND FOLLOW YOUR LEAD.

Yes HE does

None will ever be able to convince me that God does not care about the details of our life. He does. He has worked out EVERY little detail of this trip to Thailand, and ladies I mean EVERY little detail(ahem). The last little thing I was concerned about will be done and over with by the middle of next week.

God cares about EVERY little detail and He wants to take care of those details. He is a personal God who knows every hair on our head. He wants to be a part of EVERYTHING in our lives. So if you have something that you thing is too small or insignificant to bring before the Lord, hesitate NO LONGER, be assured that God cares about even that and bring it before Him in Faith that He wants to take care of it and CAN and WILL take care of it.

God is so good and He is working and moving. Allow Him to move in your life and you will be amazed at all He does.

Happy Thursday!!

Taste and see...

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

All it takes is one taste...because the Lord IS good.

I am still in awe!!

God is not finished, not even close!!

I simply want to be obediant!

I think I am simply overwhelmed at all God has done. I feel a bit out of body today. I most assuredly in AWE of God and how He works and how He has used me. I am excited but mostly right now just overwhelmed at the events that have taken place. I long for time in His presence alone just me and HIM to talk things out. I long for time in His Word to gain knowledge. Sigh. God is so good guys. He truly is amazing.
In case you are wondering what events I mean:
My friend got saved last night at church
I am going to Thailand

Nuff said. Love you guys. Keep praying. God is moving and wants to move more and do big and incredible things in your lives as well!! TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY. THANK YOU JESUS!!

The RAIN came.

How do you build a boat on dry land when you've never seen rain - By Faith
How do you get on a plane without a ticket - By Faith

When God asks you to stand in Faith...STAND.


I have a plane ticket to Thailand
God said - You are going to Thailand
And God provided the ticket

I think I am still in AWE of how God has worked
But I wanted to let my readers know...
The rain came, and my boat was ready
I stood in Faith that God was going to work out my way to Thailand and HE did

God opened the door two weeks ago and EVERYTHING has fallen exactly in it's place
I have my tickets and my passport will be in my mailbox tomorrow
Two Weeks! God worked everything out in TWO WEEKS!

My Heavenly Father said:
Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."
He said I am sending you to Thailand in May

Hebrews 11:1 "Now FAITH is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."

Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."

Isaiah 40:31 "But they who WAIT upong the Lord shall renew thier strength..."
*The word WAIT in Hebrew is 'qavah' and means "to bind together by twisting". While we WAIT on the Lord we are not just waiting on Him to do something, we are actually being intertwined, twisted with Him. We are being strengthened. Now read those verses again.*

My Faith has been increased! Thank you Father. Thank you!

A new respect for Noah.

Standing in faith.
Feeling like Noah.
How do you buid a boat on dry land when you've never seen rain.
How do you get on a plane without a ticket.
God is bigger.
If He says He will do it, He will do it.
Even if all the worldly signs are pointing in the other direction.
I will stand.

Father increase my faith, give me strength to stand no matter what others are saying or what the signs are poiting to.

I trust You Father.

In Jesus name. Amen.

A new place to stand.

God has given me a new place to stand.
It's called Faith.
I am not sure I can find the words to relay all God is doing.
I know He is up to something and I CANNOT wait to see what He does.
I am so excited at all He is doing in me. There are scary things and scary places but that just means I am outside my box. I am okay with that. God has been bringing me outside my box alot lately and I trust Him. I truly want HIS will.
Any door God opens that He decides to close, I am okay with that.
He is God. He knows what is best. He has me. He loves me. He will NOT fail me. He is that all-knowing One.
My hand is out of the pot. I am watching Him stir. And I am excited about all He is stirring up.

I am just telling you right now. Watch. Just watch and see what He does.

I love you my Heavenly Father. I trust You. I desire You. I seek Your will and Yours alone.
I can not wait to see what you are up to. Thank you for all you are doing. Thank you for all you are doing in me. Thank you for who you are in my life and for bringing me to a new level with you. I love you Father. In Jesus might name I pray. Amen.
