I didn't realized how crazy my life seems until I began to tell other people about it.
I am on a mission to do some awesome things with my life and I am trying to do it all in few hours. My goal is not to run myself ragged but to accomplish as much as I can and not to waste time. Although my pursuit may be admirable, it is not always so wise.
Let me give you a glimpse. I am working a full time job, a part time job, going to school full time, and raising three children. Whew! I am not complaining but I am realizing that sometimes I can get out of balance.
My full time job not only is my natural source of finance, it helps me to grow spiritually and stretches me mentally. My part time job puts me in touch with the world at large and allows me to extend kindness to others. My classes help me to learn more about my dreams and to gain knowledge that expands my mind. And my children, that's a mouth full.
Even when I feel that I have a lot going on, I know that God is orchestrating my life and that I must remain in tune with Him to know what He wants of me. Others looking in may see so much going on and even sympathize with all that needs to be done and I agree I am "doing the most", yet all things work together for the good of them that Love the Lord and those who are called according to His purpose. I have faith that I am in Love with Him and that He has called me according to His purpose, so this is working for my good.
I let the Lord know that tonight I will take some time for us, just He and I. I will use my time and efforts wisely. I will celebrate the birth, life, death and resurrection of the ONE who makes life worth living; the ONE who encourages me to go on and to do exploits because HE promised to give me the power.
Tomorrow is the day that we celebrate Him, in all of His glory. I am thankful to share my life with you all and my love for Christ.
Have a wonderful Christmas and celebrate Him fully.

I am waiting in expectancy to see what my baby will look like. I am glad to have women who are mid wiving me through this and telling me that the process is natural (and spiritual).
Please let me know how your doing as you reach for your goals/dreams in Faith. We are going to agree in prayer that everything that the Lord has placed within you shall be birthed out of you for His glory.
In the meantime...Keep Walking,
MiVida es de Oro!

This Thanksgiving Holiday, say thank you with a sincere heart. Tell others why you are thankful for them. Say Thank you to the bank teller, the cashier and the paperboy. Do something that shows your thanks to someone outside of your immediate circle of family and friends. Bake a cake for your neighbor, write a thank you note to someone who has blessed or helped you, visit the hospital or homeless shelter and give your time, just to say thank you.

No Joke, I need your help.
I have asked for some outside help on this give a way project. I am trying to come up with a good way of doing this. Whoever comes up with the best idea gets a pair. I have sizes 7 through 11. I have shoes and boots (not the winter kind, the dress-up kind).
Leave me a comment on the blog with your suggestion or comment on Monday, November 10, 2008's post. Two pair will be given away next Tuesday, November 18, 2008.
Don't miss out on free shoes.

Yesterday, I realized some flaws in my shoe give a way.
1) I can't add people after someone has voted.
2) I need to institute some type of contests as well as comments.
3) I need to make it easy.
In addition to shoes, I will be giving away other shoe items. As well as anything I find with the word Faith on it. Stay tuned and tell your peeps about this. It is "FOR REAL"!

This week, I have got to say "FOR REAL?"!!!! Oprah has "Ah Hah!" I have "FOR REAL?"
Just when you step over a puddle, you realize you are in the middle of the ocean. And you can quote me on this one. It is not that I expect to sail through life care free and that everything will be so easy. It is just that I want, need, and really deserve a break. I shouldn't say deserve, but desire.
It is hard for me to list these moments, without totally exposing some of the culprits, but you know who you are. And to you I say, "FOR REAL?!!!"
There are times in my life when I really don't understand what people don't get. I guess that because I am Christian, because I have been changed, because I am maturing and because I don't carry a gun, that gives you authority to do, say or treat me any kind of way. Not so!
I am surely a child of God and know that I have been brought out of darkness, into His light. And since He has been so gracious to me, I must extend that grace to you. It is only fair. Because I do not yell, scream and fight like I used to, doesn't mean I won't go to war (in the spirit, of course). I will cry out to God on behalf of both you and me. And because I have grown; spiritually and naturally means that God is truly doing a work in me and that I must understand that you are a work too. And even though I don't have a permit to carry a concealed weapon because of the Blood of Jesus over my life I am still packing (the HOLY GHOST, of course).
It is truly amazing to me when I look back and realize that my reaction to the some things do not affect me in the same manner. I believe it is because I have Faith in God and I know without a doubt that since He has called me to do His will, that things won't be easy. Wearing 4 inch heels is difficult enough on dry land, try it when you are stepping out of the boat and walking water.
I am glad that I am in this place at this time in Mi Vida (my life). A time when I can see the storm, step out of the boat and DARE to walk on water. I have not always been here. I have not always felt confident enough to do something so radical. I have not always felt the love of others, probably cause I didn't love me enough to demand better. I have not always been so open and honest, for fear of losing someone. I have not always been so generous, because of what it would cost me. The Bible states that "Perfect love casts out all fear". I believe that although I am not perfect, I can have and experience "Perfect Love".
To those who still don't get it, I will still say "FOR REAL?!" but I will take the time to enlighten you. I will share my thoughts and feelings with you. I will still love and support you. I will still be a shoulder to cry on, but you might hear me whisper, "For Real?"
MiVida es de Oro!

OH MY GOODNESS! (My computer or my fingers have a mind of their own). I posted a blog with no writing.
On Friday night, I experienced my own personal breaking. I am sharing this with you because I believe that many of us are experiencing the same thing. I had to admit to God that I am afraid to walk on water.
I am finding that writing this blog each week is therapeutic. Although, it is scary to do something that exposes your inner thoughts and feelings and allows others to scrutinize what you say or think. I do want to be pleasing to the Father and even when I am unsure of how it translates to the brethern (sisteren), I must be about my Father's business. My goal is to let others know that it is okay to be you. In the past five years, I have learned that no matter what anyone else says or thinks about me, they have not had to live, think or breathe in my shoes. Their experiences may have mirrored or been similar to mine, but we all have to make our own choices.
I have had people say that they have read the blog and it is "interesting". Well the only thing that I can say is "I guess, I am "interesting" too", because it is about me. That is the only person that I have authority to expose. I have to understand that when you put yourself in a position of scrutiny, you will be scrutinized.
Last year, my cousin gave me the book, "If you want to walk on water, You've got to get out of the boat", by John Ortberg. I have read it front to back two times. This weekend, I read the passages about Peter walking on the water. And I am now finding that it is time to get out of the boat. He is bidding me to come. Just like Peter, I am sure that it is Him but I keep saying, If it is you Lord, command me to come.
I have to continue to do the things that I know will be helpful to someone else. I keep hearing "Fear not", but that just strikes up more fear. Why is God telling me not to fear? Because in saying that, there must be something to be afraid of. Am I afraid of failing, am I afraid of succeeding, am I afraid of what someone else thinks, am I afraid of what it will cost me, am I afraid of the sacrifice?
This is the time of testing. I have to do some hard things right now. I have to set goals, WRITE THEM DOWN, get out of the boat and WALK ON WATER. In this season of my life, I will have to really rely on God to order my steps and to keep me under the shadow of His wings. I expect great things in the season and as He bids me to come, I must be obedient to His command. I must trust that He knows exactly what I need and shall supply it in that time.
In each one of you, there is something that is calling you higher. Please take the first step and get out of the boat. "Even the longest journey must begin where you stand." (Michael Moncur, 9/1/04)

My Life is Golden!

I try to remember that each time I write something on my blog, that it is for His glory and I am a vessel for His use. I know that everything that I experience is an opportunity for growth. I am learning that the Lord uses moves and methods to align me in the right place at the right time. I am learning that everything has a purpose. I am learning to let go and let God. I am learning that He is in control and that He only wants the best for me. I am learning to lean on Him and trust Him in every aspect of my life.
