It is Tuesday here at Getting Real and Drawing Near and you know what that means, right? No? Well, neither do I. Wait, I know, it means we are another day closer to a few days off! [Can you tell I am a little giddy today?] This year I am a little happier than normal because I don’t have the responsibility of hosting Thanksgiving. I … Continue reading My Name is Missy and I am A Martha
Even though it is Monday, remember this is the day that the Lord has made and we should rejoice and be glad in it. I don’t know about you all, but I only have a three-day week, so there is something worth rejoicing there! Today we will finish our discussion of the phases of a dream or promise. If you have not read any of … Continue reading ….No Take Backs
It is Thankful Thursday here at Getting Real and Drawing Near, and it is time to get our praises of thanksgiving going. Okay, I’ll go first. Today I am thankful for the physical manifestations of God. I am thankful for the power of the trinity. I am thankful to have a pastor who taught me about the Holy Spirit, which is quite often forgotten or … Continue reading Thankful Thursday (11/21/13)
Well, this day started out glorious then life happened. Fighting the urge to run away screaming and crying, so I thought I’d take a minute to rejoice in the Lord and think about what is good. You all can join me if you want. Here we go….. and okay, I feel a lot better and I am ready to continue on. Over the last week … Continue reading The Death of a Dream

Now while Abraham and Sarah got discouraged, Abraham still had faith and poured out his discouragement to … Continue reading Just Believe! (Phase 3)
Sorry to leave you all hanging, but that conference I mentioned last week took my full attention. I did not have the opportunity to write my blog as I expected. The good news is that the conference was great and God showed up! Last week I began talking about Lysa TerKeaurst’s book “What Happens When Women Walk in Faith,” and her 5 phases of dream … Continue reading Enduring the Famine (Phase 2)
Happy Wednesday to you all. It is going to be a good day! Tonight starts the prophetic conference I have been waiting all year for and I know God is going to do great things. Yesterday, we were talking about Lysa TerKeurst’s book “What Happens When Women Walk in Faith.” I confessed that I had only read 4 chapters so far, but I wanted to … Continue reading Walking in Faith (Phase One-Leaving)
For as long as I can remember, I have always felt that I was called to do something great for the Lord. Notice I said “felt called”, not I believed I was called. I struggled with the belief factor because I knew myself. I knew where I had been; I knew where I was. I did not know how I would ever be good enough … Continue reading I Have a Dream………….
It is good to be back.

After doing a quick evaluation of what has been happening with this blog over the last few months, it … Continue reading Act Like Men or Act Like Christ?
