Serenity {Find Rest in the Lord}


That is what I’ve been trying to feel for about 2 to almost 3 months now since we decided we were moving to the Austin area.

Well we went to Georgetown last week and found a home!  Bought a home!  Going through all the closing process and now finishing up the packing in our Amarillo home.

It all feels like a whirlwind.  A very blessed whirlwind, with one hiccup:  our Amarillo home hasn’t sold!  It has been very frustrating for my hubby.  There has been homes in our area that have sold within weeks of being on the market.  He has had a hard time not letting go and trusting God’s hand in all of it.

But, yesterday as I was cleaning and getting ready for a showing that was cancelled I thought: what could be the root, the issue, what’s holding this house in limbo?  I have thought is was my hubby and all his type A personality and him having to work through trust issues and control issues with God.  Of course we all have these same issues just in varying ranges and degrees.

What I have realized through prayer and reflection is I could be the cause of our house having an energy or spirit of being held back.  Okay stay with me.  I know so many of us are able to rap our brains around the mind body soul spirit of a being.  But is there really a spirit or an energy of a thing?  I think it is the link to the being, us, that will create or attach energy thus good or bad spirit to an item or a thing or even a place.  So let me explain….

I have been and still am beyond excited about this move.  BUT being the introvert and highly sensitive person I am, this home has provided 10 plus years of security and SERENITY for me.  It has been where all my friends can come and gather and fellowship.  I am person who doesn’t like big crowds or gathers; but at my own home I LOVE IT!

Now my body and spirit are going to have to start over,  process new people and new places all at the same time.  Where as in my home I get to be me.  I will have that at my new home but it will take time just like making new friends will take time.  I also have to give up my security, my SERENITY, of people who know me and love me for all my amazing quirkiness.  I love being quirky, I love being me.  I need to remember that I can still be me even somewhere else.  Those in Georgetown will get to know me too and I will find my familiarity, my peace, my SERENITY there too!

So to my Amarillo home:  If I have held you back in anyway: I am so sorry.  If I have clung to you rather than God: I am sorry.  And if I have said or done anything to not allow good energy or spirit to flow from you when someone looks at you: I am sorry.  I’m going to miss you.  I will lean on my SERENITY OIL to support me in this process of saying goodbye and to thank you for holding so much love and laughter for over 10 years!

What do you need to find some calm, some SERENITY with?  Do you find yourself having emotional overload, agitation, restlessness, anxiety, or disconnected?   How can you find your peace, calm, tranquil and connected spirit in a situation?

Sit with this….pray about this…..journal about this….share and connect with me about it!

Many hugs and blessings dear followers….family…friends….

Once upon a time there was a beautiful little girl who was trapped in a life of hurt, pain, abuse, a sex cult.  She was raped at the age of 4.  She endured pain: mental, physical, and sexual at such a tender age.  Oh how could she not have scars?

I know this woman.  She is a dear friend.  When I see her she brings such joy and peace to many individuals that most people would never guess the horrific life she was born into but was able to escape it as a budding teen.

Her life was most definitely not easy and I am sure she still has scars to heal from her childhood yet her love, faith, and trust in our amazing God the Father is humbling.

I’ve shared about my Splankna  session experience of how with my own trauma I had made an unholy vow that severed my TRUST in God.  I didn’t even know I had done this.  I was only 8!!!  I have been able to see how that 8 year old little girl cried out “my God…why have you forsaken me….”

And yet this beautiful amazing woman did not feel that.  She SAW God redeeming her rape as it took place!!  WOW…THAT’S FAITH….THAT’S HOPE!

What does this amazing warrior woman do today?  She is passionate about mission trips and finding solutions to rescue women and children from sex trafficking!  She brings HOPE to soooo many around her.

Her story drives home for me.  I find my heart ache for women and File Mar 19, 2 35 09 PMchildren in these situations…..this evil.  I look at my beautiful little girl and I shudder to think of her ever being defiled and touched by evil like I was… this friend was…like so many out there have been.

doTERRA has an Essential Oil blend:  HOPE

This oil is personal to me because it was created to provide HOPE to STOPPING child trafficking!  I will share more next week about the HOPE oil…..but today I want to dig deep and reflect on your faith.

Do you ever feel like you have cried out to God and He has abandoned you?!  How has that made you feel?  Sit with this…..pray about it…..write about it!   Connect with me below in the comments…..share your thoughts….your pain….your hope….your faith!

Many blessings and hugs and HOPE my dear followers…friends…family….
