I have a new look!!!!

I have a new look and it is all thanks to Bethany over at Beyond this Moment. She took pity on this poor computer idiot and fixed me up just fine.

I told Bethany that I love the look, but not near as much as I love her. She is the daughter of my heart, and I am so blessed to have her in my life.

When you get a chance go check out her blog, she is pure beauty!!!

She even gave me a signature. Oh she is way to good to me!

Memory Scripture 1st and 15th

Beth Moore at Living Proof Ministries has challenged the siesta's to memorize new scripture on the 1st and 15th of each month. You can read about it here.

My memory scripture for the 15th is

Colossians 1:13 NKJV

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.

I love the word conveyed in this scripture and it drove me to add this scripture to my 15th memory scripture:

Deuteronomy 1:31 NKJV

and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.

In Beth's scripture tutorial she said that we need to need the scripture that we are memorizing like we need our next breath. And in this season of my life I do need these scriptures, I need to know that He is carrying me, that where I am is not where I will be forever.

I did not post my memory scripture for the 1st, so I will do that now, and hopefully you will see what God has been telling me since my world fell apart on December 19th 2008.

Psalm 57:1 NKJV

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You: And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge. Until these Calamities have passed by.

One of the coolest things that God has shown me in this scripture is that shadows are always moving and changing. So in order to make my refuge in the shadow of His wings, I have to keep moving with Him. This is a place of refuge but not a place of sitting still.

God has just been pouring into me for the past few weeks, and because of that; most times I am at peace about moving forward without Rusty as my spouse. I do have set backs and anger is always waiting just below the surface to jump out and grab me. I am making my refuge in the shadow of His wings, and He is carrying me as only He can. God is good to this weak weak woman. His mercies are new everyday and I am so grateful for that.

In Him,

New Years Resolution

I got a revelation today. I was reading Missy’s post where she was talking about her new years resolutions and how they are do able. On her list she included that this year would be the year of their marriage, and that she would read through the Bible in a year.

I started to leave her a comment about how if she and Walker will make their marriage the top priority, that everything else will fall in place. This is where I got the revelation, because in truth if Missy, me and you will make reading through the Bible in a year the top priority then everything else has to fall into place.

You see, God tells us that His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path Psalm 119:105. So if we don’t have the flashlight out how are we going to see where to step, and if we don’t keep carrying the lamp how are we even going to see to find the path? A one year Bible is broken up into 365 readings, that just enough for each day. And I can promise you that if you are spending time in your Bible on a daily basis that where you are reading is where you are walking. The Jews for centuries have been reading through the Torah (Genesis to Deuteronomy) on a yearly/daily basis, and they believe that you should see where you are reading being walked out in your life.

So regardless of what other resolutions you have made for this New Year, let’s make a resolution to make this a year of living in the Word. Of not losing the flashlight, or setting down the lamp. Of believing that where ever we are reading that we will see it being lived out in our lives. That as God has promised that if we will meditate on His law night and day that we will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bears fruit in season, whose leaves shall not wither, and whatever we do shall prosper.

What a blessing is waiting for us, if we will just carry the Lamp..

In Him,

I have changed my bloggy ID

After much thought and prayer I have changed my bloggy ID from Rusty's wife to Sallye.

I did not know that this would be one of the hardest changes that I would have to make. Changing Locks on the house, moving around furniture and buying a new bed were easy and fun. But changing the ID, that was hard.

This is a step in a new direction. I'm not real sure of the footing here. I have been Rusty's wife for over half of my life. I will be honest and tell you that I do not miss Rusty. I do not miss his presence in my house or my life. My arms do not ache and neither does my heart. God has poured out peace that you would not believe in this.

I am moving forward where ever that is, and I am doing it as Sallye.
