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!

My priorities are family and work I love!

Hey JunkyGypsy Lovers!

It has been a while since my last post. I was a bit raw in my subject last time. I have been working on myself internally for the past year. Seriously, changing behaviors and thought patterns. I can look back and see how much of my old self I left behind to embrace the “new” me or the “mature” me. It is strange for me to think about how I used to be. I realize now the influence I had on my kids. The way I lived in “reaction mode” 90% of the time. How fear & anxiety gripped me. How I was so indecisive I would have stomach pains just trying to make even the most basic of decisions. The worst was the addictions, alcohol, sugar, drugs (legal), television, and my addiction to poverty. I can see clearly how the way I behaved or the so-called example I was setting has now been thrust onto my children without permission. It hurts to know I did that but, I also know that I am a better example to them today and going forward because I choose to continuously grow. I choose to work on myself daily and even if it is painful and super uncomfortable I have fully committed to my growth as a woman, entrepreneur, wife, and mother.

I briefly want to share my mini growth spurt going on right now as I type. This one hurts! I want to lash out, hit someone, scream at the top of my lungs, ” IT’S NOT F**CKING FAIR!” It is that kinda brutal going on. The lesson is this, once I reach deep inside of myself find my power, the power that God has given me as His daughter and my birth right. (By the way, you have this power too!) Speak up for myself, stand my ground, set real boundaries, and stop allowing people to abuse me and take advantage of me or I of them. I can go to the next level in my life. I must confront things I do not wish to confront. I must deal with things I’d rather not deal with at all. Now is the time! I know it is the time. Have you ever had something keep showing up in your life over and over? Every time it rears its ugly head you push it back down? That is the way this thing has been showing up. Lies, upon lies, treated like a slave, total unfairness, etc….I could go on and on. In the past, all I would do is ignore it over and over. Not any more girl friend shit is about to get real! Part of the lesson is learning how to be a b*tch without being a b*tch. I must be firm, fair, honest, and loving. I know when I embrace all of me the me God created me to be in the proper way, God will bless me. Just this morning I read in my Bible– Deuteronomy 30:7

The LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you.”

It is funny that I read that during my devotional time with the Lord this morning and then we were once again attacked. I can not figure out why. I have been in a deep growth period and it seems the seasons we are going through here seem to keep showing up. Honestly, I am at the end of my rope, I am praying and releasing. I know that God hates bitterness. Once, I make through this hard period of growth I know God shall pour out a blessing to large enough for me to contain. Please keep me in your prayers!

I read this scripture today too, funny because the last few weeks this is how I have felt. Humiliated and abused.

Deuteronomy 26:6

When the Egyptians oppressed and humiliated us by making us their slaves,

I am sharing this because we should always be open to growth no matter how painful it is. Sometimes it will be harder than other times but, as long as we are growing only good things can happen. This is your life, make it what you want. Trust your intuition, stay focused, serve, and love others well. That is our mandate. LOVE.

Peace & Joy,

Amy

 

Open Eyes, New Roads

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,

Amy

What if…

What if you had the power to change your whole life with one major decision today? Most of us know that we have that kind of power.

Let’s just say, you were living your normal life. The daily grind. You had these dreams and goals planned for your future. But, then you come to a cross-road. One choice leads you down a path to fulfilling your dreams and goals in a way that felt totally comfortable. You have ambitious plans to succeed at life and business, bring your family back together, and learn some things along the way.

The other road is totally unfamiliar territory, you can see yourself fulfilling the same dreams and goals but, on a higher level. It is a darker scarier road. You are not sure where each step is and with one wrong step you could totally fall off a cliff. But, somehow the risk seems worth it in the long run. After, many years of chasing what you want. What you actually envision your life to be like.

th

The first road seems the safest, yes it is still scary. But, a little more comforting. You are not alone. You are not thinking selfishly on this path but also, about loved ones and what they want. Let’s say on this first path you have already given up something very precious to you to proceed with what you thought was the right path. You are sad because you did not want to give that one thing up but you did. Path one seems to make the most since when you are 40. It makes sence in the larger sceam of things. You wonder what would happen if you were to take the darker, scarier path? Would it all work out in the end? Would your visions be fulfilled? Just like you secretly imagined. It would mean giving up the one thing you are too afraid to give up. Even though, you have tried over and over again. You keep coming back. Reality sets back in and you refocus on the important things in life. Wondering always wondering what would have happened if you would have taken the risk? There is right now still time to take that path but, time is running out. Before long the choice will be gone forever. So what do you do?

People are made to keep going. Through tragedy and disaster, pain and suffering, death and life. We keep going. A decision is not going to kill you if you are wrong. Yes, there are consequences to pay but, is the reward greater? If faced with this kind of choice what would you do? Stay on the well-lit path and be comfortable? Or would you risk it all and take a chance not knowing where it could lead. I think indecisiveness slowly, kills us. When we freeze and don’t make a choice. Slowly, we die a little each day. Not physically but, spiritually. God hates indecisiveness. His word says so more than once. I more than anyone in the last 3 years have suffered from my inability to make a decision. One major decision. Life altering. My family has suffered greatly from it. Even, today I still can not make the choice. I struggle so much and fear really has a hold on me. When it comes to this one thing. I imagine myself being strong enough one day to just GO. Also, to just LET GO. I have been praying for years about it but, I have not received and answer. This is one of those decisions that has no clear direct answer from God. At least up to this point. Is there some sort of secret to uncovering an answer to prayer? I desperately seek the wisdom of the Lord. I find like David, punishment for our choices does sometimes end up with reward. At what cost, though? Pain, hurt, anger on both paths. It is unavoidable. Honestly, which road is the one that will lead me to the life I imagined I would have? The one where I actually get what I deserve. Things I felt unworthy of but, I know now I am worthy of them. What if….I take the dark, scary path and it turns out to be the biggest mistake I have ever made? Or what if……it turns out exactly the way I imagined, because if you think you can, you can. (Norman Vincent Peale). Why don’t you guys comment below, I really would like to hear what you would do. Not because I need your approval for a decision that will change my life over night but, just to have some insight and thoughts from others. I would love to engage in this topic. How do you or did you overcome your greatest FEAR? Let me know. Check out this post in relation to this subject!

More of this Year!

I am awake at 1 am. I fell asleep for a little bit, but my mind was racing with thoughts of the future. As, I was laying there trying to rationalize everything in my head and all the thoughts that were flooding my mind. I just stopped and the thought entered, ” What if you just had no expectations, Amy?” Wow. That was a thought right there. No expectations of anything or any expectations of anyone else for that matter. And, what if Amy just woke up everyday trying to be the best Amy I could be? And, what if I just worked on finding my happy…without expectations. I have been reading a book lately about these very things. It’s all very relevant to this whole year of just being real and authentic. Baby steps though. For some reason it takes me 15 books, 30 prayers, and at least 10 people telling me the same thing over and over before the light bulb goes off in my head. I’m not really sure why that is. But, hey we all are wired weird some way or another. I just had to get out of bed and write this now just in case I thought I was dreaming. That or I would totally forget and then allow all those thoughts to keep me up all night. Walking through the valleys this year has been hard, uncomfortable to say the least, beneficial, very real, and to the point for the most part. My emotions highs and lows from being homeless to having it all. From food to no food. From kindness to selfishness. I really don’t think I missed a beat. I will tell you how you grow as a person though when your in the valley. You are forced to face yourself in the mirror everyday. The good, the bad and everything you may never want to face all comes out. Looking in the mirror is a good thing and meeting myself tonight was a total pleasure! So, “Hello Amy Cherie, it’s nice to meet you. Welcome to your life of freedom!” I am not free of myself, I have no expectations. I have dreams, goals, to do lists and stuff. No more misery in the mind. Trapped thoughts racing around in that boxed head of mine. No Pandora’s box is open and free! I am ready for tomorrow, just living FREE
