Dangerous Surrender- Chapter 1

Whether you are following along by reading the book or you are just curious or maybe you have already read this book.  I am excited that you have chosen to stop in and visit.  I am glad that you have.  I would challenge you to chime in down below in the Comment section.  It is a book that I am convinced even after reading the first chapter that this is one of those books that will change your life.  Change the way that you think. Change the way that you see the Lord working in your life.  OK, so let's get started and look at what Kay shared and then go and look at the questions that she posed in the back of the book.  I will copy the prayer that she posted at the end of the chapter.
She poses 6 questions at the end of the chapter in the back of the book.  We will not go through each question.  I will just pick 2 or 3 of them and share them.  Of course, if you would like to comment on one of the other questions, please feel free to do so.

1. Have you ever experienced God persistently working to direct your attention to some relationship, issue or cause?  If so, describe a major turning point in your realization.
This question for me was one that I actually had to stop and really think about.  I was amazed at all that the Lord just continually brought to mind and how I had changed and how I had moved and of course there were those times that I chose not to change and for that I am sure that I missed some major blessings for not listening.  At present, I could not go a word further without confessing and praising Him of what He is doing in my heart and my life at present.  I am just amazed at how He works.  I realize that this maybe around the world and back but just stick with me on this one.  I even had a time about 2 weeks ago that I was at home and even wrote a post on here about the word "know".  You can go back there and read that later.  The realization that I was in a place where I was frustrated with where I was and what I wanted.  I wasn't looking at what He was wanting.  I was focused on what I thought He would would want for me.  It is something that I believe with all my heart that He has put there.  My passion and desire to be with and educate women about pregnancy, childbirth, and life after a new arrival.  Now this is not something that would be a passion of every other person.  The part that was frustrating me and it was effecting every part of life. I wanted more. I was frustrated because I wanted to do what Pam wanted to do.  I wanted to buy a friends business.  I could teach. I could network. I would be my own boss. I could be home with my little one more. I could have dinner ready when my hubby came home. If I had a Mom in labor, I would not have to ask management if I could go or not.  Do you see the problem?  Do you see where my head was?  Then it hit me.  Well, let me clarify that. HE hit me!!!!!!!!  I went last Sunday.  I went to service and realized as Pastor Rick was preaching that He was speaking to ME!!!!  It literally hit me upside the head.  "Pam, I have you where I want you. I put you there. I want you there. Make the most of where you are. Grow to the point that you are busting at the seams and then when I am ready, I will move you."  OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  That is it.  Do what I have asked you to. Be content in where I have placed you. I was totally shocked.  I realized that He was speaking and it was up to me to respond. It was my choice.  My choice?  Listen and do what He asked!

5. Read Kay's description of the world's wealthy.  By her standards, are you wealthy? If so, do you concur with her assessment of "legitimate guilt"? Discuss why or why not.
This was something that really hit  me.  Have you ever thought about what you are blessed with?  First, He chose to place us here in America and you would think that after even watching TV for 5 minutes we would be so grateful for what we have.  To think that people around the world are dealing with so much and we are so blessed.  I have been blessed to go on several mission trips.  They have been blessings beyond belief and when I look at what we have here compared to them, it absolutely makes me feel guilty.  I know that after the first trip to India, it was very difficult because when we came home, I was ready to clean out everything, sell everything, move to a smaller house, give away my clothes, and everything. It is difficult to come home after a mission trip and try to help others to see what you have seen.  There are days that I come in and see what all is in my home and realize what all we have.  There are days when it would not bother me at all to back up my husbands truck, open the windows and start throwing things out the window because we have so much "Stuff".  Of course, I am not seeing that happen but don't think it has not gone through my head.  I have been so convicted at times that I have cleaned out my closet and taken things to Good Will just because I have so much and knowing good and well, there is no way I am going to wear it.  Now, let's get even more personal.  Do you have a storage unit?  I will admit, we do.  Now, when was the last time that there was something there that I needed?  2 YEARS!!!!!!  I am not going to do the math to figure out how much money goes out to pay to keep the "stuff" in that place that I don't need. Don't use. Don't even go and get anything.  Yes, we will be getting rid of this place in the next 2 months which I am so excited about.  Not only that we have that extra income but the free-ing experience of cleaning out a place but the fact that the "Stuff" that I have could be what someone needs.  Probably most of what is there will be donated. Donated to different places. Next Step Ministries. Good Will. Pregnancy Care Center. Room In The Inn.  What about you?  Do you have legitimate guilt about the things that you have? Legitimate Guilt about what and where you spend your money?  For sure, I have and with His help, He is directing me and my use of the the blessings that He has given me. 

For sure a lot to think about.  For sure a lot to consider. I would love to hear what you think.  Next Saturday we will visit again.  I can't wait to hear what you think. 
Let's close with the prayer that Kay had at the end of of the chapter. 
Father, you are disturbed by the misery you witness every day.  None of it escapes your notice, but, honestly, a lot of it escapes mine.  Forgive me for my complacency, my apathy, my ignorance.  Help me to see the world through your eyes.  I'm scared to surrender all to you; I'm not entirely sure I can trust you with what matters most to me.  But I want to know you; I want to love like you love, and hurt the way you hurt.  I want to live the adventure of risking it all for you.  I am saying yes to you right now, no matter what that yes entails.
Now it's your turn....SHARE!!!!!!

Challenge and Invitation!!!!!

OK, so I have decided that there are a bunch of people that are lurking.  Lurking the post and just seeing what's going on but never leave a comment and not up for the "Challenge/Invitation" and that is OK.  Maybe this is just suppose to be me reading the book and sharing and if that is the case, then that is what we will do and you can read along as I go. 
I would love it if some of you would be willing to jump in.  You can be anonymous if you like.  Not a problem with me.

So, I thought I would just give you a taste of what this book has in it.  The following is direct quotes from the book in the forward and introduction section.  So, I will share the quotes and let you think on them and then I will post thoughts about the first chapter by Friday. 

"Allowing people to get close to you means permitting them to see your flaws, your faults, your failures, and your fears-and that is most people's worst nightmare.  We want our lives to make a difference, but we don't want anyone to really know us.  We only want to share the sanitized story of our lives-just the high points. But that removes the drama of the struggle, the authenticity, and the power to impact others. "

"The journey has been about new internal realities as well as external realities.  God has also taken me places within myself I've never anticipated.  I've experienced the best and the worst about me.  In that process, God has become more real and more personal."

"The reading won't be easy or always pleasant-this is not a book to read when you're seeking a lighthearted romp through a make-believe world.  But if you're yearning for something you can't quite define, then you're ready for Dangerous Surrender."

"Don't be discouraged! I intentionally left the how-to's a bit vague.  Sure, it would have been easier if I had given you a step one, two, and three to becoming a dangerously surrendered man or woman of faith.  But that isn't real life.  No one arrives at spiritual maturity by following a formula-at least I haven't experienced that.  Instead, I've included a section at the end of the book with five or six questions per chapter to allow you to wrestle with the new thoughts and ideas stirred up by your reading.  These questions probe beneath the surface to help you as you process your reactions and come up with responses that will eventually lead to a shift in your thinking and behavior."

So, are you challenged? Are you up for it? Want to jump in?  I'm excited and ready.  I have read Chapter 1 and have been so challenged already. I can't wait to share!!!!!!!!

It's A Book

     You know how you see that other people read a book and they discuss it and talk about it and you would just love to read it?  Well, I have found a book just like that.  It's a book that I had heard about. I had seen it on the shelf at the store.  I even found it on the Thrift Book website that I use for all of my Childbirth Education Books because the books are so cheap.  Anyway, I bought it.  I figured that I had been reading so much about pregnancy, labor, delivery, postpartum and breastfeeding that it was time to read something for Pam.  Not that I don't like those books, but it has probably been 2 years since I read something for me. 
So, I bought this book called Dangerous Surrender- What Happens When You Say Yes To God- by Kay Warren. 
     Well, I have started the book.  I read the Forward and the Intro. of the book and I was already wondering "Why in the world do I want to read this book, I am already uncomfortable just like she says I would be".  I am still digesting Chapter One.  I am sure that there will be a post to follow about this.  It is absolutely amazing.  Things that you "know" but when we aren't so busy and think about them.....WOW!!!!! 
     I have challenged a few to join me on my reading adventure of this book.  Would you like to?  Please let me know.  Leave me a comment and we can read through it together. I have just started.  Pick your copy up and let's see what happens when we say yes to God!!
     I am uncomfortably excited (if that is a phrase) about reading through this.  Of course, excited about sharing the journey as well.  I am sure this will be an adventure.  Are you up for it? I know I am!!!!!!!

A Very Sweet Woman!!!!!! My Great Aunt Valoree

The call came in on Saturday.  I knew she had not been well for a while and knew that things were not going to get any better.  She had taken her last breath earth-side and walked into the presence of her Jesus.  Can you imagine any other way of spending you Saturday morning?  I know I can't!!!!!

She was the sister of my Grandmother, my Dad's Mother.  She was one of those Aunts that you loved to go to their house.  She has 3 boys.  One was already in Glory when she got there and and so was Uncle Johnny.  They had both been called home way before her.  She still has 2 Sons here with their spouses and children.  I can't tell you of all of the memories.  They just keep flooding my brain and every time they do, I just loose it.  Makes me just miss my Grandmother and Papa and Granny that much more. 

I thought it would be good therapy to just write a few of the memories. That would help me and maybe help them, if they even know about this blog.  I'll share with my Mom and Dad and they can send it to them.

I can remember when I was way younger and Aunt Valoree sold MaryKay Cosmetics.  It was just when MaryKay was becoming big.  I mean the big pink Cadilac and everything.  That was her goal.  I just knew she wanted one.  I can remember her opening the closet that was off from the kitchen and there would be just miles high of little white boxes.  I remember her sitting me down and letting me do a "facial" and my Grandmother's reaction when she saw me in full make-up.  Remember I was about 10-12.  I loved every minute of it.  I do remember when she had earned the "Gold Bumble Bee".  I think it was a ring but it may have been a pin.  She was so proud of that bumble bee with all of those little tiny diamonds.

I remember that she always wanted to do something when she came over to Grandmothers and Papas.  She NEVER came in empty handed.  That was just a given that she would always have something in her hands.  It didn't matter if she had stopped at Winn-Dixie or if she had baked it or cooked it last night. She always had something. 

Of course one of my fondest was going to eat Pizza with my Grandparents and Aunt Valoree and Uncle Johnny.  We would go to Pizza Hut and eat thin crust peperoni and then we would leave and go roller skating.  The best part of going to eat at Pizza Hut was that all 3 of her sons (most of the time) would come to eat with us.  We would laugh and eat and just have a wonderful time.  I can even remember where that pizza place was because it was down from Bob Jones University.  Just the memories!!!!!!!! 

Tonight the family will recieve friends.  Amazing how many will come out.  Tomorrow they will celebrate a woman, mother, daughter, aunt, great aunt and great-geat aunt who walked in to the presence of Almighty God Saturday morning.  While I am so saddened for her children and all of the family left behind but what an awesome thought that she is no longer hurting. She is at peace and serving the Lord that she loves so very much!!!!!  I am so excited for her. Tomorrow will be a TOTAL CELEBRATION of who she was and what she is doing today.!!!!!!!  I hope her boys and their family know how much I loved her and how much I adore her.  Shoot, I am still wearing Mary Kay because of her!!!!!!  I love you Aunt Valoree!!!!!  You will be missed but we will see you again!!!!!

Today is 3/16/2011, a.k.a 3:16........

This morning driving to work and listening to KLove as usual, they were discussing that today should be National John 3:16 day because of the date.  They then challenged people to post it on their Facebook, Twitter, or wherever to call attention to one of the most well known verses in scripture. 

Well, of course, I posted it on my Facebook.  I am going to tag this post on my Twitter account as well.  At the same time, I pondered the verse on the drive to work because they had read it out of several different versions and it wasn't different in the message but the wording was a little different.  Probably one of the first verses that many of us memorized.  Maybe one of the only ones that you know.  Yes, today could be John 3:16 day but if you came down to it there could actually be a verse for every day of the year if you thought about it to match the way that we write the verses out. 

OK, let's get back to the verse.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16
Now, just let that sink into your brain and your heart for a minute.
Let's really look at this. 
For God so love the world- God, the Creator, Master, All-Knowing, and many other titles and characteristics that we could name, loved this world.  He knew that we would need Him. We can't function the way He desires without Him. He loved the world. The whole world and everyone in it.  EVERYONE!!!  He created each and everyone. He knows them by name. He knows the color of their hair, the color of their eyes, and down to how many hairs are on their head. He created them and loves them. From the beginning to the end, He loves all of us. That in itself is enough to make you want to fall on your face.
That He gave His One and Only Son- What a sacrifice. I mean, let's ponder this for a moment.  You have one child.  One. Would you be willing to sacrifice your ONE child. One child for the salvation of those people that have sinned, turned away from you, go in their own direction, calling them stiff-necked, and stubborn. Would you give up your Son for them?  HE DID!!!!  HE DID FOR ME AND FOR YOU!!!!!!  Can you imagine? I personally can't wrap my brain around it. I can't fathom giving up my child for such but HE DID!!!!!!!   He did because He loves us.  Oh what a sacrifice.
That whosoever believes in Him - This is where the rubber meets the road so to speak.  Whosoever believes in Him.  You have to make a choice. Do you believe? When we believe in Him, that will require action.  Believing in him requires us to put it to work and get busy for Him.  He gave His life for you and now you are to give your life to be busy and active looking to bring others to Christ. Looking for ways to share Him, His Love and His Sacrifice and the life He has given you with others. 
Will not perish but have everlasting life - WHAT A GIFT!!!!!!  WOW!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!  To realize that He loved me and you so very much that He sacrificed His Son and because I believe in that sacrifice and what He did for me that I want to share it, I will enjoy eternity with Him.  We have that choice to make of Heaven or Hell.  Choosing Christ, loving and believing Him with all that is within you, and the thought of spending eternity with Him in Heaven........... I can't wait!!!!!!!!!  To be able to sit at His feet in worship every day- all day- and never have to leave His presence. Can you imagine how awesome that will be?  Oh the joy!!!!!!!!  WOW!!!!!  is all I can say.  This life is so full of ups and downs and the day in and day out and to be there with Him- face-to-face......Oh what a glorious day that will be.

All of that being said, I hope that as you read the verses that we all know and love and will quote at the drop of the hat.  Think about those things. I mean really think.  Then, take sometime and thank Him for what He has done for you!!!!!!!!

To "know" and then to "KNOW"

OK, so I was thinking....(OH NO!!!! RIGHT???) Anyway, I keep running across this word and I hear people use it and I wonder sometimes if they know what they are saying or maybe they mean one thing and it is coming out wrong. We use words like hope, worship, know and a million others that I wonder if people really use them right. Please understand that I don't use them right either. Please don't think that I do. I am so far but I have found that I am choosing my words a bit more carefully and thinking through them before they come out of my mouth.
So, let's take this word "KNOW" and run with it.
Know- according to Websters means to perceive directly : have direct cognition of (2) : to have understanding of (3) : to recognize the nature of : discern to recognize as being the same as something previously known (2) : to be acquainted or familiar with
So we use this particular word all of the time.
I know how to do that.
I know what her/his name is.
I know who that is.
I know my children.
I know the Lord.
I know the Word.
I know what the Word says.
Now, if you were to look at the meaning behind the word "know" in the context of scripture. At times there is the same know as above. You have knowledge of someone. You know what their name is. You have met them. You may even know their spouse and their children. You have "head-knowledge" of that person. You know them. Does that make sense? You can even know the Lord. You can know the Word. You can even know what the Word says. Now let's look at the word in a different light. Know in scripture can be used in a different way. Looking at the Lexical Aids in my Bible takes it to a whole new level.
KNOW- YADA- to know (Qal) to know 1a to know, learn to know 1a to perceive 1a to perceive and see, find out and discern 1a to discriminate, distinguish 1a to know by experience 1a to recognise, admit, acknowledge, confess 1a to consider to know, be acquainted with to know (a person carnally) to know how, be skillful in to have knowledge, be wise (Niphal) to be made known, be or become known, be revealed to make oneself known to be perceived to be instructed (Piel) to cause to know (Poal) to cause to know (Pual) to be known known, one known, acquaintance (participle) (Hiphil) to make known, declare (Hophal) to be made known (Hithpael) to make oneself known, reveal oneself know for certain4, know with certainty1, know assuredly1, (*This is the Old Testament Word.  If you look in the New Testament it would be Ginosko and the meanings are almost identical)
I realize that was a lot but let's look at it. Stick with me on this one. To know means to know someone or something by experience. As in the way a husband and wife would know one another. You know by a real experience and not just casual, on the surface, it is intimate.
Let's go back to that list again.
I know how to do that (because I have done it in the past and good at it)
I know what her/his name is. (He is my husbands best friend and has been in our home)
I know who that is. (We have been to dinner together before and she is a wonderful person.)
I know my children.(I gave birth to them and they live with me.)
I know the Lord. (I have seen Him work in my life in big and small ways)
I know the Word. ( I read the word and it is alive and active in my life.)
I know what the Word says. (I read the Word and it is being written on my heart and in my head.)
I so hope that I have not totally lost you.  Stick with me.  I promise it will all make sense.  When we know (yada) someone or something we know (yada) by experience.  So this is the way that I look at it and it speaks so loudly at me.
I know, by personal experience, that the Lord loves me.
I know, by personal experience, that He has a perfect plan for me.
I know, by personal experience, that He is my Savior and my Lord.
I know, by personal experience, that His Word is alive and active in my life. 
Does that make sense now?
We can have all the head knowledge in the world but if we don't have that personal experience, yada, of Him, we are missing so very much.
Do you know, by personal experience, yada, the Lord?

I pray that this is something for you to think on today.  I would love to hear your thoughts.

Praise the Lord it is Friday! AND Praying for those.....

As I have watched and read about what all is going on around the world this morning I was almost to the point of tears this morning.  I listened all the way to work about where the Tsunami was and where it was headed and was just overwhelmed with emotions.  I had sat and looked at the 102 pictures that were up on a local sites, probably Yahoo, of the devastation in Japan.  My heart just broke.  I think the thing about an earthquake is that they come without warning.  All of the sudden, everything starts shifting and shaking and for those in Japan, their world was either washed away or it is a heap of ruble. 
As I listened to KLove on the way to work and they were talking about the next place that it could hit would be Hawaii and then the western coast of the US and the time frame that they were talking about I could just feel the knot in my stomach getting that much bigger. It also reminded me as well that we may be the "Mighty USA"  but we are not immune!!!!! I logged in on the computers at work but of course we are not to be "watching TV/Internet" while we are at work and most of the times that I tried to get the latest, it would boot me out.  There was not much I could do but just sit and pray.
I can't even wrap my head around having life as we know it one minute and then it is completely gone, taken, and you have lost it all.  I can remember as a little girl during the winter and going to see my Grandparents in Greenville SC and my Granny and Daniel lived in Honea Path SC about 30-45 minute drive between the 2.  It was winter. It was cold and it had even snowed.  I remember the phone ringing in the middle of the night.  My Mom just kept saying, "Oh No, Oh No, is everyone OK?"  We were at my Grandparents in Greenville and I think it was my Aunt calling to let my Mom know that Granny and Daniels house was burning and nothing was left. I remember all of the phone calls, the traveling back and forth and the first time I saw it.  Even today so many years ago, I will forever remember that scene.  NOTHING!  I mean NOTHING!!!!  It was an old farm house.  Had a wood burning stove in the middle of one room.  I remember the HUGE kitchen and kitchen table that was in the middle and Granny preparing biscuits as only she could. I remember sleeping in the front room in the big bed. I remember the first time visiting after Granny and Daniel got married and realizing that I couldn't sleep in my Granny's room anymore because now there was "some man" in there.(we still laugh about that).  Remembering  that is the only way that I can wrap my mind around what has happened in Japan.
To loose it all.  It's just overwhelming.
It made me really stop and think today.  If something happened and I lost all of my possessions, where would I be?  What would I do? Where would I go? The one thing that CAN NOT BE TAKEN is my faith, trust, love and hope that I have in MY LORD AND SAVIOR!!!!!  What about you? What if you lived in Japan? What would you do? What would your response be? What could you hold on to? For sure something to think about.

What an Awesome God!!!!!

OK, so Monday I was on here typing a way waiting to go to a delivery.  Well lets just say, My God is awesome.  I have shared on here before that I get nervous for whatever reason when a "Mom" of mine is going or is in the hospital.  I have no doubt what so ever that it is the enemy coming at me and I know that.  All those questions of......"What is she goes into the next day and I miss work?", "What if I am up all night and then have to go straight to work?", and a million other "What ifs?".  Well, Monday was a wonderful day.  I had started a bit of panic but quickly claimed my Lord and that went a way.  It was going to be a full day.  I needed to be there for her. I was going to need to meet my hubby and for sure didn't want to miss BSF on Monday night. The lesson had been so full and I was busting to share it. 
How in the world was all of that going to work. 
Well.......check this out........................
I had no MD's in the office so I was off- check
I had a great morning in Bible study and writing on my blog- check
I went to the hospital-check
"Mom" rocked her delivery without any medications at all-check
Got to spend and hour with her before meeting up with hubby- check
Came home and heated up dinner for the Men-check
Went to BSF and had my socks blessed right off- check
Now, there is no way humanly possible that that all could have happened. There is no human explanation. There was NO coincidence. 
Is He awesome or What???!!!!!!! 
**Please note that I had time to write on my blog on Monday.  BIG POST coming up.**
Let's just say that the day was given up and given over and He orchestrated EVERY SINGLE STEP!!!!!

What about you? How has your day been? How has your week been?
I have so much to share and write about.  He is just so very faithful!!!!!!!!

Hope you have a GREAT day!!!!!!!

It's Monday!!!!!!

It's Monday morning and I am just waiting for my phone to ring so I can go to the hospital for a "Birth-Day" today.  So very excited.  It's a beautiful day outside and I probably should have gone to the gym this morning but decided not to and just get caught up on some blogging and other things and most of all just being quiet. Have you ever wanted to do that? I mean just sit and be quiet?  I didn't realize how hard it would be.  I had my Quiet time this morning and then it was like I didn't know what to do with myself. It was a very strange feeling. 
Of course I am in the throws of BSF this year and loving every minute of it.  I think the part that I just love the most is that
Yes, it is study of His Word
Yes, it is discipline ( and heaven knows I need that)
Yes, it keeps me in His Word
Yes, it is Old Testament
The part I love the most is..... IT IS PERSONAL!!!!!
I knew that but now I really see it and look for it.  I mean now I really KNOW it.  When you read the Word and the Lord consistantly keeps saying..... "I will", "I will not", "I am he that" over and over and over He is speaking in FIRST PERSON!!!!!!!!!  He is speaking personally.  OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  How incredible to think that He is speaking so close and so personal to me.
Me, the sinner He saved
Me, the one that He loves
Me, the daughter of The King
Me, that He would have sent His Son for even if I had been the only one on the planet.
Can you wrap your mind, your heart and your thoughts around that? I struggle with that at times. 
I serve a personal Lord. I have a personal God. I have a personal Savior.  What about you? Do you know Him? 
Amazing to me. Overwhelming at times!!!!! 
Take some time. Be quiet. Listen. He is so very close!!!!!!!

Have an awesome day!!!!!!!!!
