I thank God for the many opportunities afforded me, including receiving his precious Spirit into my life. He’s all I need and more. I have launched a business call “SoothingYou.” It’s been a way to get out of my comfort zone and change my way of seeing a career. Nu Skin has everything including great support, coaching, a free opportunity to make the money you want to make and great products that feel and work wonderfully. 
If you’re looking for a way out of the rut or a new career. Message me in Facebook or email me. 
May God bless you richly.

Praying for Opportunity

I am excited. I have been looking and praying for an opportunity to make more money. I am still working at DG but I’m also a brand representative for Nu Skin. I’m actually successful with sales. I simply ask the Lord that if I am to continue that he will bless and multiply it. I am paying my tithes and being faithful but things have not changed very significantly. Maybe I am to rejoice in the small victories and blessings and give him thanks for all my increases. I love the Lord and only seek to honor him.

A Clearer Vision

I’m so grateful and excited about where the Lord is leading me. I know that I don’t know all there is to know about walking with the Lord but I know my experience. If that helps anyone then I am all for a degree of transparency. I’m a broken vessel as many of you are. I chose to give the pieces to the Lord to fashion them according to his purpose.
I will be posting here as usual, but I will also use Facebook as a platform to reach souls who need him! Both ministries are important; to the believers and those who struggle with him.
Whether in word, prayer or songs I will do all I can to lift up, minister to and encourage all who read and hear my posts.
Pray the lord lead and anoint this endeavor!
My prayers are with you as well.
Bless you.

O That They See You through Me!

Let them see You through me! How many times have we prayed a prayer like this one? We've heard it from the lips of worship leaders and agreed in an attitude of worship with emotions at work and tears staining our faces. We want to be the best we can be for him! We want him to be proud of us. We want to give him pleasure.(Rev 4:11)
Do we really know what we ask when we utter those words? Do we know the trials that he permits to come into our lives when we say "Break us" or "Mold Us"?
We look at Abraham who was told to offer the Promise of his lifetime as a burnt offering or the Shunemite woman that sought the prophet for her dead son, telling his servant "All is Well", John the Baptist "That He increase and I decrease.". or even Jesus who cried, "If you will, let this cup pass from me; but let Your will be done."
They all conformed to the will of an all knowing- all powerful God.
We not only pray those words, but we also pray; in the middle of the forming trials that are there to answer that prayer in us, "When will you deliver me from this mess I'm in?" We white-knuckle the waiting room chair where we sit, believing we are helpless to do anything, but wait. But he didn't call us to sit. He called us to wait-to serve! To wait on him is to pull ourselves from ourselves and look around at others in need, offering to wash their feet by helps and acts of love and mercy.
The world calls it paying it forward or doing random acts of kindness. Is that not part of the spiritual fruit resident in the Holy Ghost and what should take fruit in our lives without grumbling or complaining? Do we see those around us, customers, coworkers, family etc. as a mission field of souls that need the Word of Life or are they just a source of stress and aggravation? Is love not what God is and what we should be?

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints (Psalm116:15)."
The Jewish people had layered meanings to all their writings. This is one example. Not only does this speak about the mortal death, but also death to self and one’s fleshly habits. It also speaks of the overshadowing of your soul with his presence, so that only he is evident. Death is change. This is the fullness of the burial that only starts in Jesus Name water baptism. Moving on, mortal death changes the outward features of the physical body. Repentance, death to self, changes the mind as Christ continues to spiritually recreate you into what pleases him and what will reach those around you most effectively. "I will follow you to the death" Peter said. But he was not ready to follow through in that promise. He denied Christ. He saw the method of execution and avoided that agony and shame.
Can we live through some trouble. through backslidden kids, embarrassment, loss, helplessness, poverty, marriages that are on the rocks, etc? Through what will we go to allow the Lord to shape us? We say we'll follow him in death. Can we live through death; from trial to trial? Through what furnaces will we walk with Christ to see His glory become evident to our world? Will we come out as pure gold when we are tried (Job 23:10)? Do they see us in the midst of our calamity or do they see Christ?
God Bess!

Straighten Up and Fly Right!

There was a song made popular by Nat King Cole. As  many pilots can tell you a man's sense of gravity and orientation are deceived once his feet leave the ground. Many traumatic accidents result from a pilot's failure to trust his instruments  only to trust on his own senses.
Proverbs says that a man's goings are of the Lord, how then can he know his own way?
We were created with the guidance system of the Spirit of God. When Adam and Eve sinned that guidance system was removed. "You want to trust yourselves. So, be it!" The only way that man could be back in the graces of God was for the Lord to make a path of redemption, opening up the channel pf communication to himself, again. This only happened by the Spirit of God through a vessel of flesh- Jesus the Christ ("Jehovah is become our salvation."). Many so-called self-made men and women trust their own instincts, accomplishments and popularity to get them through the tough spots in life. But what happens when life throws a curve ball and they are left with nothing?

We all believe we know what is best for ourselves and our loved ones. We believe that doing the most reasonable thing keeps us safe and out of harm's way. But when it doesn't to whom do we turn?Ourselves? Therapists? Loved Ones? Must I remind you that even friends and loved ones erred in their responses to Job and to Jesus. "Curse God and die." "You must have sinned to be here/" Come down from that cross if you are the Son of God! Save yourself!" Thank God he didn't.

We grow up with dreams and ambitions, which are not necessarily wrong. There is nothing wrong with goals and visions. But who steers those goals? What counsel is sought for them to stand through time. and circumstance? Can the hammer say to the one artisan who made it, why did you make me this way (at least (he) knew who to ask that question)? Most people believe they just happened.
IF that belief isn't a house of cards?  And is not sure to blow away at the slightest puff of air, much less a whirlwind?

Are you flying straight and right?

Is your plane upside down and headed to the ground? Do you know for sure? Jesus said that the blind lead the blind and they both fall in the ditch. If you seek counsel make sure the counsel is well grounded. He has to be able to steady you. If he is in the same plane, you'll both crash; unless that counsel is consulting the instruments and gauges that tell you of your true state and position.
There is only one gauge that counts. Whether you believe it or not He is the one true God, who created you and knows exactly how you operate; your feelings your dreams and your desires are all given for his pleasure. (Revelation 4:11)  Let him straighten you so you can soar!

When All Else Fails

I have always been one to believe that if I worked hard, studied hard and was faithful I would succeed in almost anything. The reality is that I don't know the right people to get opportunities that come so easily to others; I also lack the charisma to sell anything to anyone. So, I just worked hard. So, why am I still living below poverty level? I have a Master's Degree in Business Administration. So, what is my point? I am coming to it. I used to be frustrated with the fact that my husband and I would get a job, be doing well and, out of nowhere Murphy would come and bring his lineage along with him. I'd get laid off, lose my rent and have to move in with in-laws. Why can't we just get a break?
Now, to anyone who doesn't believe God works in all things and/or believes that only the rich are anointed, we are plum out of luck and out of fellowship with God. "Just curse him and die."Or "Maybe you sinned and this is your punishment."
Yes, I have been tempted to say "enough with this; give me a bottle of wine. I'll drink away my sorrows."
But I know better. Lately I have prayed for God to fix our situation and then sit on my hands and/or bite my nails. I'd worry every time something else happened to claim the reserved finances saved for bills. I would also be a nervous wreck trying desperately to conserve my job.
But I am slowly realizing that I can do nothing about this than the next right thing.  I can only be faithful to those who rely on me and love me. To the Lord I can only pray and wait on him. He gives me the faith to believe in him and the grace to stay with him. I would be lost if he didn't step in and catch me.
So, I release my husband, my fears, finances, worries, people who aggravate me, situations and circumstances I can't change, etc; into his hands. I still have to remind myself to do this. But this is my goal. This is how I stay sane, and joyful.
"Even if the Best of Life seems at its worst. When the dam of tears is bound to burst..."
He is still working his will to astound you!

Keep waiting on him; and stay full of joy. That is your strength!
He is Still Wonderful!
It's not professional but I hope it will encourage you.

Bless You
