2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Ephesians 5:21-25 (KJV)
21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
So something I have really honed in on is something I didn’t fully notice before I met Shane. I am a woman, a mother, at one point a wife. Everything I say in this is out of love, though surely there will be some that have ill feelings towards it. In the scripture above it speaks of the roles of a husband an wife. Now, if you truly know Jesus and love God you know that He is PERFECT and EXACT and God of ORDER. So exactly as it is written. In marriage you are instructed to SUBMIT to EACH OTHER in fear of God. Meaning, that it is a requirement to regard your spouse before yourself. Then in EXACT ORDER…… WIVES SUBMIT yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord. WHHHAAAATTT?!?!?!?! What does it mean to be submitted to God? What does it mean to submit? FULL and TOTAL SURRENDER of ones well being, body, possessions, and ENTIRE life. That’s ridiculous you ladies might say….. totally allow a man to dictate my life? Are you crazy?…. HAHAHAHA God answers that in EXACT ORDER. For the Husband is the HEAD of the wife. EXACT ORDER of LIFE…. GOD, HUSBAND, WIFE, KIDS, House. Ladies, this means that in direct reflection to your marriage and house hold lands not on your husbands shoulders…. but YOURS. He is to lead you are to follow. Have you ever tried moving your body in a particular direction but not your head? Your body cannot walk away from the direction the head is going. Have you tried to keep your body upright yet tilt your head way back? Your body follows the direction of the head no matter if you wanted it to or not. In EXACT ORDER the scripture continues… even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body. THEREFORE as the church is SUBJECT UNTO Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands IN EVERYTHING. WHAT??? Did GOD just say that?!?!?! YES!!! What women don’t get, is that this is the FIRST things that MUST be done BEFORE the husband gives love to the wife. And YES I just went there. God designed it this way end of story. In EXACT ORDER, husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it. This is where the husband cherishes, adores, protects, provides, and laces his wife fulfilling her in every way. See your husband operates on respect, while the wife operates on love. Ask any man if he rather have love or respect more…. Respect is the number 1 answer. He has the weight of God on him. designed by God, your husband is to lead the wife and children to Jesus. He is to the decision maker, the provider, the protector, and the LEADER. Everything that transpires from his house he is responsible for and that INCLUDES the wife. Don’t get it twisted ladies this doesn’t mean you control things from the background or that you can act any type of way. This means he leads you follow. Don’t jump the gun gentleman this doesn’t give you authority to do as you please either. ABSOLUTE PARTNERSHIP in a marriage. Give and take. YET, as the wife your feelings and thoughts have value and merit…. wait for it…. THE ULTIMATE DECISION IS FROM THE HUSBAND!!! (DANG I Just said that) YES!!! That is why God reprimands the the husband as well as the wife when the wife jacks up. Guy’s you may be saying THAT’S NOT FAIR. Hey, your the leader and the head ….. we follow you. (to be continued)
Isaiah 58:11 – 12 (KJV)
11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
I feel this this pull, God reminding me at every corner how my calling is for Him. I love Him so much. I am not sure how you guys feel about christian dubstep / house music but it is pretty awesome. I am HUGE HUGE music person. I have trained to sing and dance since I was 4. God will use these talents one day soon. (1 Peter 4:10) I find myself falling in love with Jesus over and over again. Remember that we are the BRIDE of Christ. there is a ROMANCE that transpires. (Gen. 28:10-22, Exod. 3:1-17, John 21:15, John1:29, Ephis. 5:27) God is so AMAZING guys. You can’t tell me there is no water in a pool I’m already swimming in. He continually is lifting me up when I feel abandoned and unsure. With my business and in my life I have been overlooking the progress and being thankful for what is happening. Feeling like I need to be farther, and do more, and have faster results, etc. The fact that I am so selfish is so disheartening. How can I even be so ungrateful to my God? I love the romance I have with Jesus. Like my husband he ensures and encourages. Like my best friend He defends me, and lifts me up. Like my lover, He wraps around me and tenderly loves unconditionally. Being my God, He commands my life and graciously shows me how much I need Him every second of every day. Have you ever been so absorbed into something others called you obsessed? I have…Be obsessed with Jesus. Out of all the things I have been told I am “obsessed” with my favorite is JESUS. hahaha from fitness, to business….. my truest obsession is God. As I follow His path for my life, I have found so much happiness at the purest submission to God. Standing my ground even when I have oppressors and nay sayers. Jesus is who defines me, guides me and instructs my life. THANK GOD!!! Blinded by the light (Acts 9:1-19) now I can SEE for real!
This relates on so many levels in life. The biggest one is the authority God gives us to have dominion over ALL things, excluding Heavenly things. Reason we were created was to be the head and not the tail. Don’t fear people or thoughts of them. They don’t matter. What matters is what God thinks and what He says to you and about you. Do not fear satan or his army. You are GIVEN AUTHORITY to command them in the name of JESUS, back to the pit of hell. Don’t question it or doubt it. Also, this relays into business and work. What is your calling? What are you doing to get there? Is fear holding you back from great success? God rus my life, because He does success is inevitable. God WINS period! Godo lead me to help people open successfully international business, but only those who want it. …. want to change their lives and family trees. This is just the beginning, I know it. He didn’t say it wasn’t WORK… I started building my business part time, like you can, He did say with helping others success will come financially, relationships I make, connections, and most of all telling others of how Jesus changed my life and can theirs.

Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
I have been pressed to write more on my blog. I can’t lie, I have been distracted and caught up with my business. God is so awesome guys. No joke. i’m doing what is known as a run. A run in my business is when you put your head down and grind it out until you look up and your at the goal. My goal seems distant from me, because I set the bar to be at the top. Like life, everything is a roller coaster. I am going through every emotion every day multiple times a day. I have realized the rate of mindset in others and myself. I have recently been speaking to people around the world initiating conversations that are about business and Jesus just take over and the whole conversation roll into one about HIM!!! God is so good guys. I have neglected to write a blog in along while. God has reminded me multiple times. My daughter asked me when I would write one again because she follows it. Guys she is 9. I was taken aback, I really am slacking if my 9 year old is asking me when I was going to write again. A hard reminder to never forget that God has called me to also continue to keep this going. I have many testimonials to share from the last month or so. Places in which God shows me just how in doubt and times of struggling faith He will always be there. YES, I struggle in points of faith at times. During these points I blast the worship music and remember WHY I must keep pressing forward. My WHY is because God told me to do something. Guess what guys, because He told me to do it, I have the strongest driven passion for it. God will never ask you to do something that He didn’t create you for. He made you specifically to be who you are, to love what you love, to have specific skills and talents, and thought processes. He made you to use all of these to bring Him greater glory and be the fishers of men. (Matthew 4:19, John 21:4-17) All these things is the very thing that drives you, that pushes you, that brings you the greatest joy and happiness in life, what fulfills you and gives you reason to want to live. Don’t allow the enemy to lie to you, telling you that you are unhappy or miserable. GOD is greater. Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives of the the world. (1 John 4:4) What does this mean? This means that whatever you have going on, whatever circumstance is draining you God is greater. That negative husband, nagging wife, friend telling you that you aren’t going to make it, those waiting to see you fail, those who lie about you, or turn their backs to you. YOU BELONG TO GOD…. THAT MEANS YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!! You can feel the hurt f the circumstance but you don’t break to it. I’ve more than taken my fair share before building this business and helping people change the direction of their life and family trees from poverty to wealth (in more ways than just financial). Now that I’m actually doing it I can’t even talk to my family about it, not because I don’t want to help them but because it’s me they want to not even know about it. So to that I say, Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, Matthew 13:57. A prophet is not without honor EXCEPT in his own town.
