Scripture

“The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.”

Daniel 8:26

Reflection

Sometimes we receive visions, premonitions, and messages delivered in dreams, and we aren’t sure of their interpretation, purpose, or relevance. Some of us dismiss them as casual dreams that the mind manufactured from commingled messages gathered from numerous sources. While some of us believe that the messages have meaning, we desperately seek the answers through our own means and methods. Then there are some people who turn to God and ask Him the meaning, relevance, and how best to proceed.

Sometimes the messages we receive look into the past, present, near future, or distant future. But no matter what, we aren’t to lean into our own understanding—we’re to rely upon God [Proverbs 3:5-6].

Sometimes we’re too focused on what other people have or what they’re doing. We get competitive, jealous, or envious.

Stay in your lane, focused on you and what you’re supposed to do. You’re bound to crash if you’re busy looking over in someone else’s lane. If you’re busy stressing over whether someone’s going to cross into or over your lane, don’t—let God handle that. If you’re living in fear that someone will take what’s yours, remember that it’s not yours it’s God’s—and our Father-Mother will handle that also. Just live your life today and for today.

Prayer

Father, I pray to keep my eyes and mind focused on today and what You have planned for me to do, experience, and express—not on what tomorrow could or could not bring, and not on what did or didn’t happen in the past. I just want to stay in my lane, on the path You have carved out especially for me, and give my all every second of today. In Jesus’ Name I pray to You Father. Amen.

Love you all!

Update on My Book!!!

Do you see my face?

If you’ve ever written a book, then you know this feeling…when you’ve typed the last word, period, comma….

You poured yourself onto those pages and you’re empty, yet oh so very full.

Last night I finished typing the final words of a book that is inspired by my 9-year journey through my blog BreakingBreadWithNatasha.com and I cried. I cried tears of joy, relief, and satisfaction for putting my all into a piece of work, to glorify God and His goodness and greatness in my life (through storms and rainbows).

I’ve started several books over the past 20+ years, but this is the FIRST one that I’ve finished, and am proud of. It’s taken me almost 3 years, on and off, to reach this point. I would start writing, get discouraged, and stop. I finally reached a point where I was tired of God asking me when I was going to keep my word so that He could keep His. There’s things that I want to do and experience, but I’m holding myself back. Last night was a sweet victory.

I’m not finished. I still have to get final edits and complete a litany of steps including artwork, decide on a title, paperwork, legal stuff, marketing, etc. etc. etc. But that’s nothing, compared to having to discipline myself to sit still for hours at a time, to create something that I would want to read—and hopefully YOU too will want to read.

I will share more when I can. I just wanted to share this moment, especially with those of you who have been asking me to write this book since 2011. Thank you for the loving push!!!
