The Season of Waiting

Waterfall-in-autumn-forest

As I was having a bible study last night I got so excited about sharing it.  The first lesson went over the season of waiting and we all know what that is like but you may not call it a season.  In Ecclesiastes 3:11 it says “God has set the right time for everything.” As I was reminded of this scripture it was the timing of this bible study that was amazing.  I have had the DVD and book for awhile but I hadn’t set up a time to start it until a friend needed me and this was the answer God said use and he was right.  I needed the lesson just as much as my friend did.  God is awesome and I know I can be a little cheesy but I that’s ok, I’m excited.

As I heard the sermon about the season of waiting I looked around and said yes I have been waiting and its been difficult but look what he has done.  God has given me a new home, a new church, new friends, a movie, published books, a great non-profit ministry, a new job, and he has made me more desirable as the one for the one.  God knows my hearts desires and he knows yours; look around and see what he has done and smile.  We all have our bad days of “Why not now?” but just remember he knows best.

Be the Incredible….Happy New Year

As I watched Ed Norton in The Incredible Hulk deal with a great power he didn’t want but was given, it reminded me of why God only gives us so much power as individuals.  As individuals with the type of power The Hulk was created to have we would destroy people and things closes to us without even trying and as a group of people it would be catastrophic aka mob mentality.

I have submitted my manuscript and pray that it will be published through this great publisher so that the gift God has given me can be shared in a powerful way.  Do not try to do everything on your own. God puts people in our lives with strengths that we do not have to help us grow and prosper in the gifts he has given us.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

No one really wants to be alone it just happens that way sometimes but its what you do with your time that is a test of God’s.  God wants to see how you will use your time.  Will you use your time wisely and selfless or will you be selfish and foolish? Look to Jesus for help and you will see the truth and love you seek.  God wants you to succeed with the gifts he has given you if you use them for good.

Love starts with Humility

A Discipler of Christ

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

 

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

 

When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.

 

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

 

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

 

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

 

Pride brings a person low,
but the lowly in spirit gain honor.


Humility is the fear of the Lord;
its wages are riches and honor and life.

 

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

 

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

 

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

 

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

 

Before a downfall the heart is haughty,
but humility comes before honor.


Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.

 

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

 

God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.

 

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

 

So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

 

Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.

 

Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord,
and humility comes before honor.

 

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 

Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.”

 

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

You know What I love?

loveoikos

You know what I love? I love the Lord.  There are days when I doubt my dreams, goals, and desires.  I ask myself, “Are you serious?”.  I do not have someone as in another human being asking me everyday “Did you do this? or Did you do that?” when it comes to my writing, and creative passions.  It is just me and God.  God is the only one that can make all these things happen and I am at his mercy.  My hands are his hands so when he says write I write and when he says stop I stop.  God does bring things to my attention by allowing me to see things on a to-do list that I would problem forget to do if I didn’t write it down.

I have been blessed with my first potential sponsor, my first potential song in the movie, and potential actors for the movie.  I’m no fool … no sirree… I plan to live for God not me.

I am looking for sponsors to help with catering food, restaurant locations for a scene in the movie and other additional products  and services we can showcase in the movie.  If you are a local business in the Memphis, TN (metro area) and would be interested in sponsoring us please email Stacey Robinson at actingoutforlove@gmail.com.

God’s Beautiful Script

Blessing-Quotes-and-verse

God can write the most beautiful things.  As I dream and write ideas down I have to laugh because I often wonder why I can’t have these in reality.  The romantic things that come to mind I have lived some but have yet to live others.  But as soon as I ponder this question God reminds me that you are still young and your new life has just begun.  I’m his baby of almost 4 … decades old.

He has so many great plans for me that I can’t even imagine; which I am grateful for because it sweetens the surprise.   Even through loneliness I find comfort with to do list of redoing Sela’s bedroom and ideas for renovating the kitchen and then working on my book and script.  I’m definitely not bored… haha.

I did make the mistake of telling Sela, a 9 year old, I was working on her room yesterday and of course I received several text asking if I was done with it in a matter of 30 minutes.  I am her wonder woman and she believes I can do anything.  I will be lucky if I get done before she comes home.  The Lord has me moving and shaking so as I act out his beautiful script I am thankful for living, I’m thankful for the people who do love me, my home, and all the other littles things he provides for me.

This is a year of Thankfulness and many blessings to come.

 

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
