Creating ripples

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

I took this picture on the day that I created this blog. I was at a beautiful park in Kirkland, WA and as I was looking at this lake I was filled with such peace. There, I realized that I am taking my first deep breath in a while, because life was just too hectic at the moment. The water was so still and I had an urge to break up this stillness. I took a big rock and threw it into the lake – how satisfactory it was! The rock created ripples and splashes and that brought me joy. It also filled me with a sense of freedom, as if that rock was pulled out from deep within me.

In the last two years God began a process in me of getting rid of things that laid heavy on my heart. Things like un-forgiveness, bitterness, jealousy, performance orientation behavior, low self esteem, anxiety and deep sense of loneliness. All of these things have brought me down daily and were significantly diminishing my quality of spiritual life. Working on myself at times feels like peeling an onion – the moment I solve an issue, another inner issue seems to surface. Nevertheless, I have experienced extraordinary miracles DAILY since beginning this process and I am looking forward to what is to come.

See, when I began to remove the walls around my heart and letting God on the inside, the atmosphere of my life shifted. Similarly to the ripples and splashes that were created by the rock I threw into a still lake – I began to see ripples and specks of Gods work in my daily life. This is why I am here, I want to bring you along on a journey of how REAL God can be in your life…I also want to share what is burning in my heart and what He is walking me through.
Most importantly, I want to help anyone, who is willing to burst open their hearts to God…because that is the only way to experience complete freedom, overflow with the power of the Holy Spirit and live in Peace.

Where do I start you ask?
Well, for me it was finding time to be still, turn on some music in the background and asking God in prayer to show me what is hindering me. As I closed my eyes thoughts came and I wrote them down. I trusted that those thoughts were from God and said yes to His invitation to free me…

What is He speaking to you today? What is hindering you? What is it that you must throw away in order to live in freedom?

Believer in Jesus. I live in Seattle. Happily Married and enjoying Motherhood. People find me very open and easy to talk to and this page is a place for me to share my life with you. I believe that when we share our lives we are able to learn and support one another. I named this blog "speckle of faith" because most of the times it takes one small speckle to turn things around. I will be posting about my speckles (life revelations) and daily miracles that are present in my life. Thank you for joining me!
