So I wanted to dig a bit deeper into relationships. I SAY THIS OUT OF LOVE! ! As iron sharpens iron.(Proverbs 27:17) I’ve gone through enough stuff in my past 3 relationships spanning just about 15 yrs…. learning and growing each time with Jesus. Watching my parents fall apart and now recognizing traits in both the female and male roles played out first hand around me. First to clarify I AM NOT PERFECT. I will protect and defend my guy to no end and yet I will be argumentative at times, I do have trouble with full submission, etc. I’m a handful. From Part 1, it is clear that there is an action that causes a reaction. Wife first has respect and submit to the husband before she receives unconditional love. I have encountered woman that have everything wrong totally. Married and not having sex with their husbands. UMMMM excuse me, I don’t know who you think you are but your body doesn’t belong to you. Married and not catering to their husband. Not doing his laundry or cooking …. even turning down dates. Do you know what this spoiled brat, selfish, self-centered, bigotry does to your husband? To your marriage? What about never supporting him? Never helping him? Never being there for him? Comparing and complaining? You are punching holes in who he is as a man. Proverbs 25:24 & 21:9 state that it is better to live outside of the house on a corner of a roof than in a house with a nagging wife. OUTSIDE…. ON A ROOF…subject to the weather and lack of comfort than to even see you inside a spacious house and deal with you as a nagging complaining wife. Why would he stay with you ladies? I’m all about being a strong woman, and standing for something and what I believe in…. and no lie I struggle with OBEDIENCE… Do ALL THINGS as if unto the Lord (Ephesians 6:7, Colos. 3:23) ladies you are specifically instructed to treat your husbands as it is fit unto God. (Colos.3:18) It starts with YOU WIVES. Most girls today are defiant, demanding, self serving, self centered,spoiled brats…. including myself. Expecting a husband to do what we say, know what we’re thinking, give us all his time and never work yet be the provider of the family. I’ve literally watched a chick (I can’t bring myself to call her a woman or even a lady) be a two timing, fake as can be, ill intentioned, back stabbing wife and never (as far as I know) cheat on her husband and go to church and “pray for answers”. Then when he finally took a stand and said enough, she plays a victim.WHAAAT IS YOUR MALFUNCTION LITTLE GIRL?!? You can’t not touch your husband for years and think he’ll sick around. You can’t not ask him how his day was or help him with things so that he can give you more family time that you’ve been asking for. You can’t not clean the flipping house and expect him to rub your back. SERIOUSLY…. ladies… if you don’t think that catering and tending to your husband and putting him BEFORE your kids is an ABSOLUTE COMMAND from God then leave. No questions, no problems, no attachment just pack your crap and leave. Your A terrible example to your kids and to others and the world that knows you of what a good wife and woman is. If this offends you then you don’t know Jesus, period. If you aren’t in total agreement with me then you’re not reading the Word and therefore not in agreement with God. Is a hard pill to swallow and we choke on it almost every time…. pill called TRUTH. We allow pride and arrogance to consume us. The most selfish thing in the world is play victim. OHHHH MY MAN LEFT ME. … OHHHH HE WAS NO GOOD. … OHHHH HE BROKE HIS PROMISES/VOWS….. my response is STUPID IT’S YOUR FAULT.(this isn’t the case for every relationship, if he beats you, cheats on you, talks down to you, scares you, belittles you, etc… his fault totally leave and if applicable have him arrested) Your husband didn’t marry you for you to try, or to accomplish demasculine him. For you to literally break the bank, the house,and your marriage. Through sickness and health, unless you have a psychological meltdown and need Dr’s to help heal your mental status, no forms of 2 faced actions fall under this. Talking bad about your husband and never to him is not a form of sickness covered under the vows of marriage. For richer or poorer, this doesn’t mean if you never work and max out the credit cards. This doesn’t mean disregard the budget. This doesn’t mean act stupid when he asks you to stick to one. First question is are you working? Are you helping him to reach financial goals? If all your doing is complaining about it #norespect! For better or worse, if he lost his job and you lost everything (house, car, food,etc) you stick with him and support him. Help him and bring him peace not strife. If you are an added stress you bring every type of evil to him and to your marriage. (James 3:16,Roman 1:29) Ladies, I have my own struggles with this as well. I knew well enough to recognize it and take it to Jesus, go back and at least try and make it right. Can’t take back something you’ve already put out… can only try to make it right and work on your problems with Jesus for the future. Get ready ladies. … part 3 is coming soon.
11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.” I was cupbearer to the king
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!
Pray through all seasons Pray in all circumstances Continually Pray through suffering Intercede for those in pain With joy, fill the gaps “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
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.
Ok, guys, I know that I have been touch and go on here. I must admit this journey God has me on is awesomely wild. This past weekend was the international convention for my business and company. If you have never been affiliated with a Jesus founded and Bible based company then you haven’t ever lived. Myself and my team were recognized on stage in front of 30 thousand people. All Honor and glory be to God. There is no way I would have been able to do that or lead my partners to do that if I wasn’t following the Holy Spirit. It’s funny how things work out. God has shown me so much transpiring in the back ground. I’ve been given the stories and testimonies and struggles of leaders that are some of the most influential in network marketing and of the world. I saw others for who they really are at points. God revealed to me somethings that aren’t as wonderful. God is of the details. He plans for His beloved to be set up for life in abundance. Subsequently, that means the blessings overflow unto those around them. Couple scriptures come to mind; Psalms 105:15 and 1 Chronicles 16:22 both speak of not doing harm to the anointed and chosen of God. While Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, and Matthew 13:57 all inform us that a prophet is not accepted in his/her home town. I realized this in a great magnitude when others whom I never thought in a million years to betray or slander me did so behind my back and then smile and plead innocents to me while being promoted through my business because of me. How often do we remember that God is one of details. I thank God for those people. I need them in my life. Without them my life wouldn’t reflect the Word of God. John 15:18-27 is a key factor. At one point even Jesus mother Mary called Him “unstable” and “unbalanced” to the crowd He was preaching to. Matthew 7:16 shows you that you must look at the fruit that a person bears to know their heart. All that has happened in my life and my business has been a strategic plan by God. As I have grown into my walk and strength in my faith I see this more so now than ever before. By His will I was able to attend an exclusive pool party hosted by the leaders of my business. It was here that you realized that these people are the ones who are highly favored by God. So much so that our ENTIRE organization were brought together by God because of how strong and devout our faith in Him is. Because He knows that we would never deny Him and bring others to Him as well as show them how to gain life in abundance with Him. Father God is so AMAZING. and Jesus continuously leaves me in AWE of Him. As the day proceeded and we had tons of fun and networked with the best of the best in the industry, in the company, and as people of faith, God had another plan in mind. There was an impromptu worship. A beautiful pianist sat at the piano and started to play. As she played 2 girls began to sing, though beautiful voices they were hard to hear over the piano. God is one of the details. Soon enough the ones meant to be there where drawn to the room. Even if they couldn’t hear the music. That is when God used my voice. God has blessed me with what is known as a “power house” voice. When He did, Holy Spirit blanketed the room so heavily and thick that a young girl gave her life to Jesus at that moment. Gentlemen, highly respected and successful, fell into worship and praise. Tears of joyous worship and humbled praise fell from every eye. It was the single most amazing thing God has ever used me for. I pray He uses me again and again and again for bigger and greater things to glorify Him. Don’t take this testimony as a brag. I tell you because God is that AWESOME. Who am I? I am nothing but sin wrapped in flesh if it wasn’t for Jesus Christ who died on the cross for me. I can’t do anything if it wasn’t for God who wakes me up, puts air in my lungs, and tells my heart to beat. I AM NOTHING literally, with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I open my heart and myself and my life to be used by Him for His Glory.
Holy Spirit You are welcomed here. (place hand over heart) Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere. Your Holy presence is what our hearts long for. To be overwhelmed by your presence Lord.
Today I had some realizations. God is so good to give understanding in kindness and love. I was listening to a sermon when I was prompted with the question at what point do you trust anything that is you??? The Bible states that the heart deceives and we are to never lean on our own understanding. From the tongue comes the the true heart, yet the tongue tells lies. The Word of God states that it is better to cut of the hand if it is in sin. Now that doesn’t mean chop off body parts, it means that it is better to go without than to sin. We are to do only TWO things, OBEY God and to TRUST Him. There is nothing that can hurt, destroy, upset, or bind you when you simply do these two things. I recently lost my fiance, and since I have had many heartbreaks and disappointment in my life and since Shane was taken home to Heaven. Create the habits that exude TRUST and OBEDIENCE to God. Stay humble and broken before God. He seems to keep bringing me back to this point over and over. No matter your status, no matter your position in life God can keep you humble in so many ways. I find that the more He stands strong with me, the more things I realize He is humbling me. God is so good. Life with Him is a choice. You have only ONE free will in this life. TO FOLLOW JESUS OR NOT. Subsequently, every choice after that falls only under one of these two categories. Nothing about you is for you. Your entire body can deceive you and trick you. That is why we must TRUST and OBEY on God MORE than you want to have something, or do something, or give up, or cave in, or breakdown.
In humility I bow, because Your love comes wave after wave. Crashing over me crashing over me. You are for us, You are not against us. Champion of Heaven You made a way for all to enter in. You make me Brave. You make me Brave. You call me out beyond the shore into the waves. You make me brave, no fear can hinder now the promises You made a way. You make me brave, You make me brave.
God I love You, I worship You Jesus with all that I have inside of me. Every single beat of my heart, breath in my lungs, and fiber of my being belongs to You. I thank You for Your provisions and care, and the grace and mercy and love you show me daily. Without You I am nothing. I need You every second of the day and night until You take me home. Thank You Jesus, thank You Father, thank You Holy Spirit. In Jesus Holy and Precious name, AMEN!
Every day God has revealed Himself to me, REGARDLESS of myself. No matter my struggles. It’s AWESOME when you realize the AWESOMENESS of God. I’ve have been over the top, busting at the seems excited nonstop for days now. Not just because of things in my life but things in other’s lives too. Watching God just move with favor and blessings. Jesus, is just AWESOME. I cannot contain myself. I just can’t. I talk to everyone that has ears around me about Jesus. Because He is the only reason that my heart is full. First love and seek God before anything or anyone else. KEY TO LIFE. God is one of order. You cannot be out of order with your spirit and Jesus and expect your life to be in order. You cannot assume that you are the exception. And it’s so EASY. FIRST comes God, THEN comes marriage, maybe followed by a baby or 2. OBEDIENCE is BETTER than sacrifice. Sometimes God’s will calls you to be obedient by sacrificing. Understanding that God is absolute and forever and never changing. That His Word never returns void. Trust in God because He IS God. Obey God because He IS God. And worship God. ….. because He is God!
Shane and I, this was “Our” book in the Bible. God lead us to this book in the very first of our relationship. Still is spot on.
