God is definitely putting me through the fire! I consider this pure JOY that cannot be stolen from me! The Joy of the Lord is my strength and I hold on to that!!! One day at a time. Discernment is one of the hardest for me! I am really trying to hone in and get quiet and listen to His still small voice. I want His direction and HIS path. There are thousands of options all the time, and my heart wants to do them all...but the enemy warps that by trying to get me to "over-function." So I am dying to the flesh -people-pleasing, approval addiction and learning what TRUE freedom in Christ is."Scripture...considers grieving losses as central to our spiritual growth"It is a painful process and sometimes feels like a death...I have to mourn over it...mourn over that part of my "identity" as I die to that and am found NEW in His identity. He is refining, purifying and strengthening me for whatever is next. I am learning who Malorie really is...without all that other stuff that used to define, control and imprison me. I am realizing that one of my biggest ministry's is my recovery program...God is having me mentor a few girls and that has been amazing! I know it'll all tie together. Design=destiny...how we are designed, illumines our destiny.
I pray that when you look in the mirror you see God, as you bear His image. His glory is in you and His reflection shines through you...
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God- Romans 8:14(NIV)
"I need to love to be in harmony with my family. I need to love to keep myself surrounded by friends. I even need to love to work my job! How important it is to love and to live at peace with everyone!"
The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginnings but not its end.
"The Bible opens and closes with a wedding."- Selwyn Hughes
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (CEV)
Then the LORD told me:
"I will give you my message
in the form of a vision [dream]
Write it clearly enough
to be read at a glance.
At the time I have decided,
my words will come true.
You can trust what I say
about the future.
It may take a long time,
but keep on waiting--
it will happen!
2:2b-3 (The Message)
"This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It's on its way. It will come right on time.
Habakkuk 2:3 Though he linger, wait for him (NIV)
'Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.'
A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
The best vitamin for making friends...... B1.
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..
One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself.
If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished.
One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won't work unless ' You' do.
Your mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open.
The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.
The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!
It is never too late to become what you might have been.

"And all will see YOUR love inside of me. The power of YOUR love has saved me...restored me...it never fails me, your love is all I need Jesus! I'll go with you Oh Lord!!! I'll go, I'll show the power of your love, the world will know the power of your love!!!"

I'm super duper pumped up about what God is doing in Birmingham Alabama...like SUPER DUPER pumped!!!!! I just can't stop worshipping...more more more of you GOD!!!!
After my spare tire was put on, and went back in, got ready for work and then as I went to leave...none other than one of my grandma's famous care packages awaited me at the doorstep. God showed up again...time and time again yesterday to remind me that He will never leave me nor forsake me. I ran inside real quick to open it up and it was filled to the brim with all of my needs! Thank you God, thank you Grandma and Grandpa!!!! Awe-mazing!
Sometimes we have to be in the darkness to truly SEE the LIGHT!
