I just wanted to tell you guys that Jesus is just so awesome. God is just amazing. I’m reflecting on my last few weeks. And God’s absolute stance in my life is so defined. I am just so unbelievably thankful. See the thing about faith is….. it doesn’t work unless you believe and prove your belief through the tests and valleys.
James 1:3 (NIV) –
because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance
This is so true in every aspect of life. We have to and must work for things. Let me give you an example; You lose your job. You pray God blesses you with another one. And your neighbor owns a business, he’s hiring but you don’t know that bc you’re too busy crying and praying about the situation that you’re in. Do you get the job? I mean to earthly and seemingly natural mind being upbeat and positive during the valleys is the craziest notion. Let me tell you something, if you do not praise Jesus and thank Him for what you do have during these times you will stay in that situation. If you do not get up and put in effort to gain the next blessing He had for you….. you will stay in that situation. If you lose faith or don’t actually believe that God will turn your tragedy into a triumph….. you will stay in that situation. (Romans 5:3, Hebrews 10:36, James 1:2-3) Jesus has just abundantly poured out tremendous blessings even when other aspects of life were getting rough. I do not have the words to express the gratitude I have been overwhelmed with on multiple occasions towards God and all He does, continues to do, and will do for me and my family and all those around me. THANK YOU JESUS!!! AMEN

Be brave enough.
I wanted to share something with you guys. It sometimes takes drastic things to remind us why we do what we do. See I’ve been pretty lax lately on just about everything. My business mostly. My desire to want more for others than they want for themselves got the best of me. The continuous let down as I began working with people to achieve their level of success and they run at the first hint of effort they have to apply. I selfishly let them drag me down to a place of just taking a step back. Yesterday, I saw a recording from a home security camera. This message was to remember that pool flotation devices can and will drown unattended toddlers. Images like these get seared into my very soul. I started my business to help people rise above every limitation yes, but the main goal is to bring up safe havens and other non profits for battered and abused children. That being said, this clip was the longest 4 minutes of my life. I’ve unwilling cried over this just at the thought. A toddler, maybe 3 years old, was in a round baby float in a small pool. The grandma got up and went inside the door for just a few minutes. During this time the toddler flips and is now stuck in the tube upside-down under water. All I can see in my mind is his panic and then how quickly his little legs just stopped. And all I want to do is jump through the screen and grab him. I cling to my kids, I am patient with them and I most definitely see things differently sometimes. I’m reminded so vividly that I’m building wealth not just for me or my family. I’m not just trying to help others succeed or change their entire family history. I do it to build something that I can stand solidly on while I am also able to help as many children as I can live a life. To know love and care and good. All I ever wanted to be a wife and a mom. God took that and said be a mother to the motherless. Protect those who can’t fight back. Show love to the ones who think they are unlovable just for breathing and being born. I don’t think I’ll ever be fully ready. I’m not sure my mind and heart can handle what I feel God’s saying. But I have no choice but to succeed, because there are kids out there counting on me to do so.
I am going to share with you something that I have felt God calling me to do but it has not be the right timing. Today was a big day. I broke. First time in a very long time I broke into such a rage that the body tremors lasted almost half a day. God made me very different than my family. Like most of the population I came from what would be considered a “broken home”. Divorced parents and of course each of them having their crazy to deal with. We all have our faults, I found no reason to speak about them. As I get older and the more I know and understand God the more I see. The more you see the more you understand. The more you understand your tolerance level for BS you take. my first conversation with God was at the age of 4. I would sneak off into the second living room we had and just talk with Him for hours. Once taking the pennies I had and holding them up to ceiling telling Him to take it. Not realizing that what I was doing was Biblical. I was more open to Him at the age of 4 than anyone else in my family combined. Over the years I have strayed and come back to Jesus as different milestones happened. My parents divorce made me the most committed to the church I was attending until I started dating my ex husband whom had literally forced me to choose between him and God at one point. I fell away from God for many years to find my life empty and meaningless. A brand new baby and move to Texas and I came running back to God with tenacity and famished hunger. I divorced my ex husband and slipped up here and there but you can never un-know things. By this point, I could never not hear God I could only choose whether to obey Him or not. So 1 surprise pregnancy at the same time of a bad break up and I choose to become extremely devoted to Him once again. A series of divine events took place. I randomly met Shane, I had a string of jobs each better than the last, my first and worst car accident where I was at fault quickly followed by a second. My newest chiropractor hired me on the spot as he was adjusting me from my accident. Shane taught me so much but he was battling his own demons and God brought him home sooner rather than later. Soon after I met my now fiance who was a patient in the Dr. office I was managing. At first he was my business partner and closest mentor, then it developed into us being inseparable. There hasn’t been a day since we started this adventure where we haven’t been together. The more you seek Him and understand Him the faster He moves in your life. This is so crazy, My original content of this post was entirely something else, this must be for someone reading this. I was going to explain what happened today to cause me to break but God wanted something else to come out. When you understand that you as a human can never ever be good enough to deserve God to be good to you, and you accept Him for the almighty God He is, then will you see just how quickly He moves on your behalf. Even if it seems bad at the time. (Romans 8:28) I want to know God so intimately, because of that He moved me to where I wanted to be and He needed me to be within a year. I recently have been adjusting to the few businesses we now have and the blending of the families while dealing with the negativity of the outside world. By His grace and mercy with me I am still standing and alive. Today I was deeply seeded with feelings and thought that what I feel now and what I am dealing with is to prep me for the task He has assigned me for my future. Moses had to live in the wilderness of the desert and learn how to survive first before he could lead a population through it. (Exodus 2:1-15) The faster you understand there is absolutely nothing you can do to be good enough or to “make” God do the thing you are praying for, the faster you’ll see Him taking you from where you are to where you never thought you’d be. Trust Him fully to not worry or have fear. This is piggy backing off what I was saying yesterday. Obey Him when you hear Him or discern His will. I lost many years of my life that I wish I could take back and give to Him. This life is so much better. I mean a thrill and joy and excitement beyond any amount of partying a person can have. Never feeling alone or unloved, even when you have been pushed to breaking point and sitting in your walk in closet bursting into a hard cry because you know the gravity of what you just had to do to fight for your family and their equality. Or that one time you where fully aware that you where overdosed and had to pray to God your heart didn’t explode. Guys I’m telling you I have pretty much been through it all. Not once did God ever leave me, He was merciful enough to not let me die that way. For sure would have not been in Heaven. He loved me enough to pick me up and clean me off and give me value and meaning and most of all PURPOSE. I am going to do something I have never done before. I am going to give all of you my email address. I encourage you guys to ask me questions about Jesus, just have conversations, if you just need to talk, to ask for prayers, etc. My email is PerfectPersonForTheJob@gmail.com I look forward to connecting with you guys!!!
