Divinity Rising!

th-1

In the midnight of my soul there is a light of the divine. A peaceful resolution to those weak moments of the flesh. A pull  toward the broken, we are all broken. Lost but redeemed by a Savior from a God who loves us. We experience the ultimate high of emotional surrender. Freedom expressed with the release of sin and hopelessness. A sanctified extistence of the divine. Clarity begets fog and wisdom releases foolishness. From where we originated from the womb blameless brought into the world onlif we can grasp the full context of the sacrifice of the one who bore it all. All of our reality, our darkness, our pain, our sin. He took it all in each scar, each open wound, each drop of blood that blessed the ground forever. We should only ever be focused on that divine moment that freed us from sin and death. We should only be interested in the submission of our lives and surrender to the service of God. To be so blessed to be redeemed and released from the death that awaited us and the pull of and enemy that roams to and fro looking to devour us and blind us with our own godliness. That he should have us focused on our rule and our life and our wants. When the road that leads to life is but narrow and small not broad where the masses walk to embrace each other in their fleshy passions and open rebellion. It is easy to become lost in what is directly in front of you. The reality that presents itself to us us minute after minute day after day. Whom are we to indulge? Flesh or Spirit. A daily fight or a daily surrender? I choose to submit to the Spirit. To the one who bled and died, who bore my sin long before I knew I would encompass the darkness after it was already in me when I came into the world. I am eternally thankful to my God who shed His magnificent light into the darkness of my life and called me by name and redeemed me.th-5

I beseech you to look into the window of your soul and act on the Spirit that calls us to submission for our eternal good. Welcoming obedience and surrender. Release the need to be politically correct, break free from the bondages that whisper you need, you must, you will, you want! Light will always break through the dark and the battle has been won. Victory is claimed and the end is so very near. Stay focused. Stay true. Stay in line with the Word the Truth. Welcome to the to brotherhood of Christ. Welcome to the sisterhood of Christ. Let each body part of the family express its wholeness in the individual gifts that the Father has freely given to further the work of His kingdom to come. The future of the dance of Angels and the Freedom that the Spirit pours unto the body. If we can all embrace what is, what was originally intended. Use those gifts now is the time the for the body to reflect the purpose of bringing the lost into the Kingdom as a whole of the earth the Lord will always reveal His plan and purpose at His appointed time.

Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of hosts of the Lord:

In all the squares there shall be wailing, and in all the streets they shall say, “Alas! Alas!’

They shall call the farmers to the mourning and to wailing those who are skilled in lamentation, and in all vineyards there shall be wailing, for I will pass through your midst,” says the Lord.

Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light, as if a man fled from a lion and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit him. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light and gloom with no brightness in it? “I hate, I depise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even tough you offer your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept the; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. did you bring me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wildreness, O house of Israel? You shall take up Sikkuth your king, and Kiyyun your star-god–your images that you made for yourselves, and I will send you send you into exile beyond Damascus, says the Lord, whose name is the God of hosts.

“Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory and stretch themselves out on their couches, and eat lambs from the flock and calves from the midst of the stall, who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp and like David invent for themselves instruments of music, who drink wine in bowls and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away..”

For behold, the Lord commands, and the great house shall be struck down into fragments, and the little house into bits. Do horses run on rocks? Does one plow there with oxen? But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood– you who rejoice in Lo-debar (nothing), who say, ” Have we not by our own strengh captured Karnaim for ourselves?”

” For behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel,” declares the Lord, the God of hosts; and they shall oppress you from Lebo-hamath to the Brook of the Arabah.”

The eclipse the 21st day of the 8th month in the year of two thousand seventeen.

Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground, except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,” declares the Lord.

God restores after disciplinary action has been taken and although severely painful as it may be especially to the innocent, His intentions are always in favor of the good. God stands true to His promises.

” In that day I will raise up the booth of David that is fallen and repair its breaches, and raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old, that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by my name, declares the Lord who does this. “Behold, the days are coming, ” declares the Lord, ” when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine and all the hills shall flow with it. I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them.

I wrote this over a week ago. I felt the Lord was speaking to me. I do not have all the answers and honestly I was not going to publish this until I read it this morning. Maybe it will bless someone.

Respons-ABLE/ Inspir-ACTION

Respons-ABLE  Inspir-ACTION Dis-EASE

You are fully able to take real action on your dreams and goals ,your mind and body are at ease!

 

I created this to give myself some guidelines going forth in my life and business. These are all areas that I want to change so that I can impact others lives in a positive way. I began initially writing these for myself but, then I thought others would like the information too! In each area on a daily basis I am asking myself these questions. It might be a lot for you so just take a few if you are overwhelmed. By asking yourself these questions in these areas of your life and writing out your answers you are causing a shift in your mind to happen. This will help you to build positive habits, reflect on any areas that need work and it makes you aware of your thinking before you think and your actions before you act. In case you don’t understand the title of this post I intentionally wrote it out so you could see how words have power. We are all able to take action daily in our lives doing whatever we feel is important be it a dream or goal or just simply going to the grocery store and getting the kids to take a nap. It is all relative to life. Most everyone I know wants to have a life that is important. They want to fulfill their dreams and goals. I have made it my mission in life to help women do just that through inspirACTION! I have a passion for women to be healthy and not have disease but to be at EASE in their mind and body! My prayer is that you will take advantage of these questions and really begin to apply it them to your life right now!

*My goal next year is to start a: Say Yes Fund– $3000.00 per year Biz prospects, missions, charities this is after Tithe.

My Prayer:

Lord, I surrender my life and business to You. I pray Lord, for inspiration and ideas that will generate an income and also help me to bless others. I pray that You would take me out of my comfort zone daily and help me to grow intentionally in each area listed below. Help me Lord, to maintain focus and clarity on my dreams and goals. If my dreams and goals are not what You have lined up for me then I pray You would close the door so that I do not waste time chasing meaningless endeavors. Lord, I pray that you would anoint my pen so I can provide valuable content to my followers and spread Your love. I am grateful for every person reading and praying this right now and I ask You to bless their life and provide whatever needs they have. As, their sista in Christ, let us come together as a community/Tribe of daughters of Zion and embrace each other in love and truth. As You Father, have laid on my heart to build this business as a safe place for us all to grow and mentor one another. Help me to reflect Your love in my speech, attitude and actions daily to my Tribe.  I humbly submit my wants and my desires for this business to You and I pray for You to send the people to me who need inspiration and help taking action -people who are ready to invest in their health and wellness journey. Father, I surrender all I have been taught up until this very moment, I let go of what I thought were the genuine guidelines of living a healthy life. And what I thought was the way to lead people to better health. Help me to keep my mind clear and my heart pure & strengthen my convictions and help me to apply all that You teach me into all areas of my life, my family, health, finances, business, serving others, mind, body and spirit. So that my cup will overflow! Thank You Lord!

In Jesus Name- AMEN!

Farmer’s Daughter

 

 

Daughter

Hello Beautiful,

I grew up in the country. I had a childhood filled with memories of running through endless corn fields, playing in the dirt, riding my bike on long dirt roads till the sun went down, fishing with my brother every afternoon, playing and dancing under the irrigation system (which is basically like the world’s largest lawn sprinkler), and quiet nights with a sky full of stars and making so many wishes I can not remember them all. It was beautiful. I loved every minute of my childhood. I grew up surrounded by family who loved me, brother and sisters who always joined me in the mud puddles and getting into whatever mischief we could. Summers were spent on the farm, which meant you basically did not leave the 300 acres of where my house was until September when school started again. But, like many of you my adolescent years were spent in open rebellion. Sneaking out, lying, trying to be anywhere but, home. You get the idea. Now I would give anything to be on that farm with my children giving them the kind of childhood I had. It was not meant to be as they are all adults now except for my baby who is 16.

When I was that little girl, God very clearly spoke to me. He said, “I love you.” I bet you were thinking I was going to say something hugely enlightening right? No. He kept it simple for a dreamy little girl whose imagination would lose control. It was in that moment though I realized God was real. That He actually cared about me. When I spent countless nights staring out my bedroom window missing my mom and crying He would meet me. God who is bigger than any of us could ever think or imagine, would comfort my soul and bless me with His presence.

Fast forward to the 41-year-old woman I am today and guess what? That same God who comforted me all those years ago met me again this morning. He said, “Amy, this is where I want you.” Tears rolled down my face as I felt the Holy Spirit give me a peace I have been seeking for the past few weeks. You see, I have been in a dry spell and during this time my hubby and I have made some changes. Changes I thought the Lord wanted us to make. It has been a struggle to remain positive and focused. To have faith that God says we are to have. The only thing I knew during this time was that no matter what is going on in my physical world, I had to continue to seek Him every single day. He had to be number one in my life and in my day. First thing every morning I get up get my Bible out open it to whatever, read and journal. Then, I read a devotional (currently I am working through for the 6th time, 31 Days for the Dreamer and the Doer) write out all the scripture, I pray for a bit and then I pray during my run. That is all I knew I should be doing. Yesterday, I had a sense that God was smiling at me. Almost, like He was proud of my determination to seek Him. I know He is but it was and extra special feeling-I can’t really explain it. When today I heard Him say that, my heart was happy. Peace was my friend. I know that the God of the universe is capable of handling any and all problems we have. Sometimes with our limited minds we forget just how BIG HE is! Without Faith it is impossible to please God. I pray for my faith to increase daily as I pray for God to deliver manna to us. Literally. I used to have a problem with understanding faith and when faith becomes foolishness. I have been asking God that question for 20 years and finally He answered me. Faith is always foolish in the world’s eyes. Because faith is believing what is not seen. If something you have faith about does not happen it does not mean it was foolish it just means God said NO. I know there are different levels of faith. Baby Christians take faith like it is a debit card with and unlimited amount of money and spend it like crazy. Then, when it gets declined they get mad and instead of calling the bank they cut the card up and throw it away. They may never try to have faith in anything again or it takes some time. Then there is the faith that you believe for something but you are controlling all aspects of that thing happening, example if you were praying for another job with a higher pay rate and you get the job. Yes, it took faith to believe but you were also the only person interviewed for the position. Do you understand what I am saying? Then, there is faith like God says, Say to this mountain be moved and cast into the sea and it will be done. You believe without really thinking about it. Your faith is solid because you believe in God and so that mountain is moved and thrown into the sea. I understand now the line between faith and foolishness. It will always be foolish to the world. Sometimes, God just says NO and other times He tests us to see if we can handle more. Which brings me back to my point. No matter where you are in life right now. No matter what is going on in your physical world. If you are in the valley or on the mountain top. God loves YOU, He sees YOU, He hears YOU, He is right beside YOU! I urge you today to look around at what you can be grateful for at this very moment and thank Him who provides. With a grateful heart you can submit your requests to God and it will be done. If you want to join in on a 31 day Bible Devotional Group going on this month using the devotional I said I was doing let me know and you can be added. If you have never read 31 Days of prayer for the Dreamer and the Doer it is the best devotional I have ever read for people, who are artist, dreamers, writers, business owners, daughters, mothers and so on. I urge you to join there are live videos every morning on Facebook and you do not need to own the book to do it because the woman who is leading this will take pics and post them for you.

Essentially Emotional

cropped-junkygypsy-1.png

Hello Lovelies,

I want to talk about emotions today. Those rocky ups and downs. The freakish panic attacks that sneak up on us. The crazy outburst of laughter when we are excited. The moments when tears well up in our eyes because we just experienced a happiness we thought we could never know, the loss of a loved one and the sadness that ensues, the fear and joy of doing something new. You get the idea. EMOTIONS!!!

These feelings are your state of mind in response to the environment around you. This includes people, where you are, what you are doing. Did you know that your emotions have a direct affect on a particular part of your body? And you can experience the emotions in that body part. Example: Love, Fear and being misunderstood effects the kidney. It actually explains why people who have feelings of abandonment may have stomach pains. Because that emotion is attached to the stomach. God clearly tells us in His word that forgiveness is healing. Which is another emotion. Understanding that you can release emotions and emotional patterns with essential oils is vital to your health and wellness. I am not saying that all emotions need to be released but, sickness is attached to emotions. The Bible gives us instructions on how to heal.

“Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.” (James 5:14)

I have listed essential oils below that support your emotions. There is so much information out there on emotions and essential oils it can feel very overwhelming. I suggest first and foremost to go to your Bible, Pray and ask God to lead you and heal you. Next, I recommend get the book:

Emotions & Essential Oils.  Now fully doTERRA compliant! Essential oils are widely used for their physical health benefits, but few have understood the scope of their healing capabilities. In Emotions & Essential Oils, essential oils are introduced as powerful emotional healers. This groundbreaking book bridges the gap between the physical and emotional aspects of essential oils and creates a user-friendly guide for taking charge of your emotional health. Each oil is written about with profound insight and understanding of its innate properties and gifts, and the result is as poetic as it is practical.

I find if I am having an especially taxing day full of emotions I will have a rollerball of my fav oils and carry it with me all day! I also, highly suggest purchasing doTERRA’s  ClaryCalm Blend--I am in love with this blend and the past few weeks for me have been stressful so having this blend on hand has made all the difference.

The following oils support emotional healing!

Frankincense.  The Oil  of Truth.

Emotions addressed: abandonment, spiritually disconnected, distant from father, unprotected, spiritual darkness.

Bergamot.  The Oil of Self-Acceptance.

Emotions addressed:  despair, low self-esteem, self-judgement, unlovable and hopeless.

Cypress.  The Oil of Motion & Flow.

Emotions addressed:  controlling, fear, perfectionism, rigidity, stuck, tense.

Wild Orange.  The Oil of Abundance.

Emotions addressed:  Scarcity, over-serious, rigid, dull, workaholism, low energy, discouraged, hoarding and envy.

God gave us these beautiful gifts not just so they could make our home smell nice, they have healing properties. Each oil can do many things. We will always have emotions and it is a blessing to have the tools we need to support our bodies daily so we can each live a healthy beautiful life in the abundance that God wants us to live in!

What is Your Wall?

Hey Beauties,

Today, I want to shed some light on a subject that has been on my mind lately. I am in a transition period of sorts in my life. It is a strange place for me to be. I know where I want to go and I know where came from. This limbo time is a bit of a struggle. I have been digging deep in the Word of God daily. I feel the Holy Spirit leading me to dig deeper, to lean in and trust God. He wants me to pursue Him like I never have before and that is what I am doing, “I think?”

Everyone wants a beautiful life I believe. Yet, why is it that some are thrust into this world in mud holes or in terrible living situations? Why do some come into the world with everything handed to them? Yet, there are others who scrapped the bottom of the barrel and made it to the very top with everything. I ask myself this question often. I never seem to come any closer to the answer. This year I made big plans. I made breaking bad habits my number one priority and setting the example followed in as a close second on my list of accomplishments for this year. Now, here it is mid July where do I find my ambitions but still sitting on the shelf. Every other week I will pull the list out and be laser focused with this Super Hero Wonder Woman readiness to take full on action and then…….BAM! No not really I just added it for dramatic purposes.

I am at this place, 41 healthy, young, ready to change the world. My mistakes are too numerous to count, but I have forgiven myself and moved past most of them. My kids, YES. That is a major hang up for me. I wanted to give them a beautiful life. I desired to shelter them with love, possessions to numerous to count, a big house and reliable cars in the driveway, family vacas, and holidays that would make Martha Stewart jealous. That never happened. I made lots of bad choices and few good ones here and there. Why am I sharing all of this? I believe this period I am in right now is the just before I get to enter the Promised Land. I must slay the Giants that still exist in my life. You would think I could easily recognize them. Truth is I don’t. In order to figure what they look like I am searching in God’s Word. Everyday, I wake up immediately go to my Bible. I am fully aware that if I want to know what they are that I must pray and submit to the Lord to find out. I decided yesterday to embark on a journey. A quest to learn all I can about what the Bible says about health and wellness, how my body is the temple of God, confess sins I have buried deep inside, submit, find out what my mission is now in my life. I know without a doubt that God wants all of us to have a beautiful life. We should be living in His abundance and peace. I find more often than not so many who are trapped, stuck in their own weakness. Trapped in bad habits, doubt and unbelief. I have been witness to people close to me who embrace their trappings as a form of comfort. Rather than break free they chose to stay in bondage. Fear controls them. I experienced my time with fear, it still grips me at times. I really do want to break free. One of my main goals this year was to be FREE! I feel a strong leading to be an example for others. If I can submit and allow God to teach me through His wisdom daily then I can help others overcome these traps that the enemy seeks to keep people in. I can’t go into detail about the specifics of what the Lord is leading but I am fully committed from this point. A beautiful life does not just happen–it is built daily by prayer, sacrifice and hard-work.

Lots of Love,

Simple Seeds

Hey JunkyGypsy Lovers!

Well, I did it! Not by myself but, with my hubby ,whom is super awesome supportive and rocks my world! It all began last winter. My hubby and I were constantly busy with work, life you know just the stuff that takes up all your time because you are doing more stuff that takes up more time. He came up with the idea, it was brilliant I must say! One day after work I pulled out a composition notebook, we were to answer three very simple questions. The idea was that we each would answer the same three questions everyday in a different way for each other. Whoever, grabbed the notebook first had the task of answering the questions. Honestly, I think we were both so excited about the challenge that we both fought over who would go first! Then of course,one would be left waiting patiently for the their turn. Mike came up with the questions. I couldn’t argue it was brilliant, simple, easy, honest , raw and loving. On the first day the question starred me in the face.

What is something you want for the other? 

“That’s good. ” I thought. I had to answer this question everyday in a different way? “Ge’ez this might be harder than I imagined.” Nevertheless, I was up for it. So, day after day we continued. As each day progressed my answers  became more in-depth as his remained simple and to the point. It was great. Our marriage was blooming. We had found a way to communicate our love for one another in a new and fun way. Now, we decided to share it with the world. I truly believe all marriages will benefit from this 21 day challenge. It is super simple, fun and innovative. What makes this journal work is that a couple works from the same journal. It takes less than 10 minutes a day to complete the task.

Walking the Line

JunkyGypsy Inspirations

 

You know the Johnny Cash song, “I Walk the Line”?

Walk the Line

 

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine, I keep my eyes wide open all time…are you singing yet? In today’s world there is a fight a going on. It is a spiritual battle to steal our hearts. To distort every moral that is right. This requires us to stay alert at all times..”walk the line“. I know Johnny Cash was not singing about what I am about to preach. It just makes sense to me. The past few weeks have been exhausting to say the least. In keeping check with myself I have been alert and keeping a close watch on my heart. In good ol Amy style! Which means I am in between houses right now. If you have been following this blog for a while then I am sure you have been witness to many, many blog posts about losing this home that or better yet, the infamous post, “help me Lord, I am homeless!” cries. This time around there is no real panic, just a simple, “oh well, I made the decision. It will work out somehow.” That does not mean I haven’t been moody or slightly fearful. I would be lying if I said it didn’t bother me or cause me fear. During this period before we arrived where we are today, I seriously prayed and asked God to go before us. I stepped out on the water in faith. God always takes care of his children. I know that but, I do have times when it is hard to stay positive. God said we are far more valuable than the bird’s of the air. Which brings me back to this; God specifically said for me to keep a close watch on this heart of mine and stay alert. I haven’t experienced  any voices from heaven telling me to go this way or that. What I can tell you is this is a delicate time for my hubby and I. I believe that if either one of us is not careful to guard our hearts the enemy will attempt to invade and steal our joy, peace, and the blessings to come. Whether you realize it or not, when the enemy comes he comes wrapped not in darkness or evil but in our deepest dreams and greatest desires especially, when we are at a place in life where God may be testing us or molding us into better people. When humans are in desperate situations we tend to “react” to life. We allow life to happen to us and not for us. Which is why guarding our hearts and minds is top priority. We are responsible for our choices and when ownership is claimed and faith is activated God will cause miracles for us on our behalf. Let’s not forget the other side of this is direct obedience. That requires action and action requires making choices with integrity. When we are submissive to the Lord’s plan He will cause the Red Sea to part. Obedience requires walking the line and not side stepping to make things happen in our time frame the way we expect it too. Are you with me on this? I have mentioned a few words that may have hurt or offended you. Nevertheless it is the truth! Words like obedience, submit, and wait are not what we really want to hear when our ship is sinking faster than the Titanic. I know first hand that waiting sucks. How about this word, discipline. How does that word make you feel? You probably think about when you were a kid and you got in trouble for doing something stupid and you get spanked with a belt. I don’t know about you but, that was a thing in my household growing up. Today they call it child abuse (which is really stupid and a whole other blog post). It takes personal discipline when following the Lord. You have to give up fleshly desires. It is the only way to get into the Promised Land. This is where we are today. Waiting to enter the Promised Land. God revealed to me about a month ago that He was about to take us into the Promised Land, He said, “ I will increase your land and expand your tent.” He also, reminded me that to whom much is given much is required. So, I am here I am am waiting and leaning on Him. Trusting that He knows what is better for us than we know for ourselves.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.

 

Are you guarding your heart daily. Are you in a season of walking the line with the Lord? If so I would love for you share your story in the comments below!

 

Peace & Love,

This is the second time I am typing this message. Just an FYI—it is a message that God wants me to get out and thus the first time I wrote it I accidentally hit a button while typing and it deleted. That being said I know I must attempt to say it again.

This message is for us! The Christians of the world. I have been asking the Lord where He wants us to go from where we are at now. I have a feeling deep inside that change is on the horizon. I don’t know how I know but, I just know.  I found myself last week burnt out from working and trying to be Wonder Woman. I tend to stretch myself thin, its my nature. Then, I become bitter and angry. This happened to me last week. I was so exhausted that I was lashing out at everyone. I was at the point that I was about to sabotage the blessing God has provided us. I few days to reflect on my life and the blessings in it. Because bitterness has a way of making us blind to blessings. Someone last week said to me, that God hates bitterness and an ungrateful heart. You can not be a man after God’s own heart if you are ungrateful. That really hit home to me.

My mantra for this year has been ,”to be a woman after God’s own heart.” I had allowed ungratefulness, anger, bitterness and selfish ambition to get in the way of that. I had to let it GO! To release it and lay it all at the foot of the cross. God has laid it on my heart to pray and fast more. So, last week I fasted for a day and I prayed. I am praying for direction for us and for whatever He is calling us to do. During that day I did not receive and answer to my prayers. I thought maybe it was a test from the Lord to see if I was serious about prayer and fasting. The other day while driving I was silently praying about things, life things. God gently said, ” Amy I call all of my children. None is above the other. It is the ones who choose to answer that are the chosen.” This was in reference to me always praying to the Lord that I wanted to be a chosen not just a called.

Matthew 22:14

For many are called, but few are chosen.
Then God said, ” Are you sure you want to be a chosen? The ones who chose to answer are mocked, called idiots, look foolish, are beaten and sometimes killed to be my chosen.” I thought about that. WOW. Why had I not realized this before? I found myself feeling foolish at this point. Was I really willing to step up to the plate? I don’t know about you but, I realized I need to build my faith back up. I have also, been struggling to write this post over the past few weeks when clearly it is a message from God to His beloved children. Every time I would get ready to type I would lose my words or get distracted. The first time I wrote this I hit a button on accident and deleted a very long post. I wanted to scream! God laid it on my heart to let Christians know they need to learn to fear God once more. It seems today that no one really fears God. There is all this love and joy which  is true and great. But, God calls us to have a FEAR of the Lord!

Deuteronomy 4:10

Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.
So much of what I see today is how to create a life you love. How you are responsible of you own life. How YOU are the master of making the life YOU want. It’s all rainbows, fairies, and unicorns. Just scroll social media and everything is a quote about positive living and you being the master of YOU! I am not blameless in this nor am I saying that being positive is bad. I have a hard conviction right now that our enemy is using words like, “live the life you want” ,”create you dream life” and such to steal Christians and keep them from focusing on the true mission. Be doers of the Word not hearers only. We are not to conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed. It seems like Christians are luke warm, they freely do Yoga and freely participate in pagan activities. Doing and accepting things that 10 years ago they would not have done. God is calling us back to Him. We are not FREE to create our lives and do whatever we want we were all bought with a price and that was JESUS. The time is now that we are to be clearly instructed in the Word to share the gospel, to love the broken-hearted and to lead others to Christ. We have been placed here in this time right now, for such a time as this. The enemy seeks to deceive and keep Christians distracted and busy with unimportant matters. None of what we do on this earth is by our design or our making it is all from God above. We must submit to that authority and fear the Lord once more. This is the message I want to share today. It is important for the time is near and living as the disciples did in Acts is what we are called to do again. Do not allow the enemy to deceive you with beautiful words and imaginary dreams. Leading you to believe YOU are in charge of YOUR life. It is not the truth.

James 4: 4-10

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

It is important that this message get out. God says the time is near and I do not want anyone to be lost. I love you all!

Love,

I want people to see Jesus in me. I want so badly to let my inner light sparkle! Then, when it doesn’t I feel like a failure. Have you had that happen to you before? You want to change and know it is for your benefit, yet you keep making the same mistakes over and over again. Guilt takes over and before long you feel ashamed. Yep, it is a vicious cycle my friends. That is the way the enemy keeps us trapped and attempts to hold us back from victory. He really does not want us to walk around on earth being bright and shiny for all to see. So, how do we overcome this? I have asked myself this question daily for the past few weeks and the answer that found was……

YOU GET UP EVERYDAY and BEGIN AGAIN!

Pretty basic and simple. Simplicity is God’s way. We just have to be willing day after day. Pray, ask God to help us and ask for forgiveness for the day before if we acted in a way that diminished our light. Ask the Holy Spirit to come fill us and go out into the world once again—letting our light shine bright.

I want people to look at me and I want to exude peace, simplicity, joy, and love. I want people to question, “How does she do that?”  Then, I can answer and say, “Jesus.”

Will you let your light shine and sparkle today? I hope so. You are not a failure. You are not perfect but, hey God knows that. That is why he gives Grace. Shine bright loves!

Diffuse this custom blend in the morning during prayer! It will help set your day up with success & love!

Ready for Some Inspiraction!

For those of you who read my blog or follow me I would like to share with you more on my mission and purpose. I am finding that daily, weekly and monthly it is changing more and more. Changing for the better, I am narrowing down and streamlining my mission and purpose. I know that my biz and mission will certainly not cater to everyone. I am okay with that. I want to be inspirational and make a difference in the lives of people who are committed to growth and change.

I am now letting my life speak for itself. I am committed to being an example for my children and for others. I would never talk or teach anything that I have not gone through or done myself. You can be sure that the information and quality of it that you are receiving here is honest and real. I am seeking to build a culture and a community otherwise known as the JunkyGypsy TRIBE. I am very passionate about keeping everything as simple as possible in my life and biz. Simplicity and Love are the foundation for this community.

If this sounds like you:

–exude peace

–have patience

–slow down, listen to others

–your speech is impeccable

–lay everything at the foot of the Cross and allow God to work in your life.

–Walk in abundance and joy

–know that you are royalty a child of the KING!

–Love unconditionally

–Laser focused on your growth and self-development

–desire to serve others

–trust your intuition

–be diligent with your priorities

–cut out distractions so you can focus on the important things

–always grateful

*If these qualities sound like you then, I would love for you to be part of the JunkyGypsy TRIBE. I want to encourage you today to wake up with extraordinary excitement to take INSPIRACTION and up level your life now!! I know you have goals and dreams to accomplish, I also know that real life can get in the way sometimes. My desire is to lead, guide, inspire and serve all those who have a like-minded soul. In my current series I am sharing ways you can up level your life.

My next post, I will be sharing how to maintain a positive mindset when it seems everything is coming against you and trying to bring you down. I spent many years living with a negative and pessimistic attitude. I was never happy, much less pleasant to be around. I started each day with a victim mentality that everything that was happening to me was just because and there was nothing I could do about it. I will share with you the day I woke up and realized the way I had been living. How I changed it all and today I live a full, joyful, grateful and beautiful life. I wake up with enthusiasm and ready to see what blessings the holds.

I ask you today, what do you desire in your journey of growth? How can I help you? Please comment below and I would love to connect!

Lots of Love,

Amy
