Jesus Take The Wheel

I've been praying a lot lately and as my cousin said last night he believes that something great is about to happen for me (more than just Baby I although that will be AWESOME). This is not just my transition time but my time.

I took a whole lot of time (2+ years) to become "official" because I just had a lot of stuff going on in my mind and on my plate. Right now much of that "stuff" is gone, but please believe the rest of the stuff that is a major concern I'm working to will be out of here soon. What is the definition of insanity? Exactly! I'm no longer doing those same things over and over.

I want to have a clear head when Baby I comes home, but as my mother says there is never a perfect time. So, the one thing I have been doing all of these months is trying to get my life right with God...without Him I am nothing. I am much more peaceful, prayerful, faithful, joyful...all of those pleasant "ful" words. ;-)

Also, I forgot to share this little story that happened to me last year. I've always heard different people say how God spoke to them. I really would think yea, ok. I just didn't understand or know how that could happen until it happened to me. The week before last I went to sleep and in a dream God said to me "Tami I am your only way. Tami I am the only answer. Come to me for all of your problems. I am the only way." I woke up with a huge migraine (that's how I know when my dreams are real) and said ok, I get it...I hear you. Ever since then I've been recommitting my life. I'm so sold out on The G-O-D. I mean he is some kind of AWESOME - trust me - he has given me so much favor and carried me through so much when clearly I should have had much more than a bruised knee. How can I not love and adore him? How can I not be sold out on him?

Sorry for getting extra on you this morning but...I was just feeling it and had to tell you how Great My/Our God is and play one of my favorite songs for you.

Take it away Carrie:

Ohhhhhhhhh, LOVE LOVE LOVE this post as it is pushing me onward!

"Sorry for getting extra"? Girl, NEVER apologize for going "extra" when your FATHER, the creator of all GOOD things is constantly pouring out His mercy and grace to you even when you don't recognize it as such. Girl, NEVER apologize for putting your toe in the water and realizing that it's good to drink--that it'll actually satisfy that thirst like nothing else can...NEVER apologize for being HIS and HE being yours!!!!

PS...Stop trying to "get yourself together"'ll never work in and of yourself and your strength.
Just surrender and let HIS Spirit guide you and work out of you what isn't in HIS plan for you. Jeremiah 29:11-14..."HE's GOT THIS"

PSS...And don't beat yourself up when it looks/feels like you're going backward in this thing---for that's when you know you are actually going forward in your "skin"! Baby I is a blessed child to have a Momma like you!!!!!

Beautiful post, Tami. God has never let me down when I need him and have asked for His guidance. I accomplish the most and am most at peace when I trust in Him.

Hi Tami:

Not really a response to this blog entry but I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday (especially since we share the day) and I am holding the best thoughts that your current wait will be resolved quickly.

That baby will be here for her entire life. She most likely hasn't even been born yet. I waited 16 months to hold my daughter (who was 7 mos old when she came home) and our anniversary is this Wednesday - MAYBE for your birthday NEXT year, Baby will be YOUR present!! Here's hoping!!!
