Essentially Magical Life

JunkyGypsy Inspirations (11)

Hello Lovelies!

I have missed writing here on my little blog! It has been far too long. Literally, I find that my schedule is quickly filling up and I have to figure out what works for me. I am writing articles for a couple of magazines, building my new website, prepping for weekly Facebook live Sista Jam Sessions, where we come together in love and truth and chat about our dreams and goals! Doesn’t that sound simply divine? I am super excited about the new launch. I also, starting writing a new book. It is not entirely new, I am rewriting the book I recently published on Amazon and adding lots of value and much better content to the mix. I have found my entrepreneurial spirit, the confidence to embrace my own uniqueness. I am determined to show up big in my life right where I am today. Have you been in a place of new growth and unlimited potential in your personal life and biz? There is this atmosphere of abundance right now. God I believe is opening doors and sending opportunities that maybe once were not options. He is lifting the veil so He can be glorified I our daily life. When we give Him the glory and the honor He is showing up BIG for us! I feel it. If you are on the cupst of growth or something you have been trying to do for a long time just know that He is sending the right opportunities and the right doors will open at the right time. We are in a beautiful space of love and peace. Embrace sista’s with all of your beauty. The world needs you!

The In Between.

I wake up with a thought that has been haunting me for the past two weeks. It resembles a lot of my FEAR. It hangs before me day after day staring me in the face. I know what it is. I know how to get rid of it. Yet, still there it is. I just stare at it as if it were a long-lost friend. A warm fuzzy or a neuscience like a fly buzzing around my head. I am afraid of losing its unfamiliar feeling. The excuse to keep it around. So, I just stare at it day after day. I try to move around it and ignore its presence. I work and clean. Do ordinary life stuff. And it just stares right back at me as I dodge its reminder that its there. I get all excited in my personal growth. My business ideas are flying. My creative spirit is marinating in rainbows of beautiful content. I write as if tomorrow is here. I live as if yesterday never ended. I wake. I sleep. I rise with mew hope and aspirations. I am diligent and intentional in everything around me. Yet, there it is day after day. Hanging in my face. Screaming “Amy it is time!!!” I know I am in the in between. One foot in the future one foot in the past. Today’s reality is plain. A confrontation, a pain. To acknowledge it means it failed. It means I failed. It means I lied. I manipulated. Or at least that is what my thoughts tell me. The pain is too much to bear not on me but on another. I simply can not do this again. I know there is no future if I remain and there is no today if I do not acknowledge it. I am sorry. It is to painful to remain in the in between. What do I do? Run, scream, my mind is stirring. I wish this was easy. I wish I could simply close the door. No. God says, ” Let my child go!”

The in between. Like the Israelites in the desert for 40 years. They were not allowed to go in to the Promised Land. They had to conquer Giants and submit their will. This is my last Giant. Then, God says, ” After Amy. You may go.” To deny my God in the face of fear. Is fear of man or fear of God. Some may say it is an easy question to answer. A simple choice to make. I promise you it is not. Fear of failure. Fear of falling. Fear of not speaking in love and grace. I pray for the moment to be over. Yet, it is still there.

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!

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,

The Long Walk…

 

 

8d9e1ff5e42f1c3dcb71757e31ab1507The past few weeks have been so say the least really hard. My husband and I were both laid off our “work camping” job. A place we were each promised to have 40 hours a week and work all winter long. We moved a hour an 10 minutes away and left another job on the promises of what this person told us. We were excited and had great enthusiasm when we were hired. To us it was our first “real” work camping experience in our RV. What did we know. It all started out so fun, meeting new people, living in the campground, helping build business here and so forth. Little did we know that slowly, week after week our hours began to get cut, things slowly started to be taken away from us (internet access), laundry facilities and we had to move spots more than once. That was not that bad. The owner developed and extreme anger and hatred toward my husband for no reason, other than the fact I think he does not like confrontational, truthful people. I mean, he fired him once and then another family member of the owner allowed him to come back to work for our site fee. Then, came the day last Monday when both owner and granddaughter came to our site and said “You both are done.” No warning, no planning. Nothing. I take full responsibility for not saving $$. It still hurt like hell! When you get your hopes up and are so excited about something and you think its okay but, its not. Just goes to show you who people really are. This man is a dictator of his campground and his grand daughter told us in our 5 hour interview that he had a “God” complex. I saw it with my own eyes. I heard guest say how wonderful he was and nice. I never saw it. The weekends when my kids came I told them to stay away from him so we did not make him mad. I may have been a little paranoid but, the way it turned out I don’t think I was. Regardless of this loss in our life at the current moment. The past few days and weeks have been a daily struggle not knowing what you are going to eat, or when the next time you will have gas in the car. Etc. This kinda stuff just makes the day hard even when I want to be positive and grateful. I have not worked on my business properly. I even forgot to do three scheduled classes which, hindsight made things worse. I have prayed and prayed. All the while looking for work. God is good. Sunday we worked for a wonderful woman who just needed a little help around the house. We met a new friend who not only paid us but, sent us home with chili, cheese and chips for dinner and today she came to the rescue again. God strategically placed her in our path. He is so awesome like that! I am back to focusing on my business, I must succeed failure is not an option for me. I started out this RV thing not for myself but, as an opportunity to build my business and save money so that I could have an income enough to take care of them. I really am a simple person. So, I don’t have all the answers right now and I am not sure where we are going but, I do know God has a plan for this journey. I am asking and seeking His will. I have learned a lot in the last few days about my own selfishness and wants. About who I think I am and who I really am. Also, that I have not had a servant’s heart, even when I pretended I did. I am grateful that God pointed these things out to me so that I can repent and move on. I am ready for what’s next I will not allow money to have an emotional affect on me! I have everything I need right now and I know I have a provider and I am willing to serve and work hard. Maybe my next post won’t be so dramatic but, I sometimes hate that social media is all “fluff” and no pain. I just want to be real and let you know how it is. We live in a real world and sometimes it sucks, sometimes it’s rainbows and roses. Its raw, real, painful, happy, fun, and not so fun. Until next time–

Making Good Habits….

1 Thessalonians 1:11-12

And so we keep on praying for you, that God will make you worthy of the life to which he called you. And we pray that God, by his power, will fulfill all your good intentions and faithful deeds.

I know that God sees all my good intentions and my faithful deeds. My good intentions may not have worked out the way I thought but, He knows I mean well.

What and awesome scripture to find today! It really spoke to my spirit. I am awakened by the Holy Spirit, I want to draw close to Him and Him to me. So, with that said, I need changes. The hard part is when you commit, take action, expect struggle and move forward. I have started to read Joyce Meyer’s new book, “Making Good Habits Breaking Bad Habits”. I have had this book for weeks now, with the intention on reading it, but like I have said in recent posts I have been on overload lately. I am excited to begin, I am not going to smoke anymore! I have made the decision and I am willing to let go of its control over me. Here you go, Jesus! Just one thing I am committed to. Please feel free to pray for me I have been a long time off and on smoker. The next thing I want to work on is eating healthy God created foods so I feel good. I am having a hard time with this because our budget is very….tight. I try to keep fruits and veggies in the house at all times. My struggle is dinner I am married to a meat and potatoes man, God Bless him. I get it that is what he likes. It just means I have to plan two different dinners. Prayers please. I know God is orchestrating these changes so I know he will provide the path and give my body the strength it needs during the battle. I am selfish but, by the end I hope to be selfless. So, anyone else going through the whole breaking the bad habits, I know how it feels and I will pray for you. After all, If God is for us, who can be against us! 

 

Blessings,

Amy

From Hope to Homeless by Friday..

Well, this week really took a turn for the worst. I knew we were struggling financially, but we were scraping by. I knew God called me to homeschool my kids this year and I know I still needed to work but, finding the right job to fit the schedule has been hard. So, Monday our rent was due after our landlord gave us an extra week to come up with it. And I woke up asked my husband about it, I knew we did not have all of it but, I really thought we had at least half. Because this was the first time ever that I was not aware of the situation. I had asked my husband over and over if we would have it and he reassured me he would. So, this one time I really felt,” Ok, I will believe him and let him handle it. He normally comes through. But, this time the work he had lined up last weekend suddenly fell through and NO WORK. Then to make matters worse, his former employer who by the way never paid him all the money he owed him before he left, called his new employer and guess what? The new employer said, ” No you can’t work for me on the events.” Which leads me to today, we have to move. Our landlord is fuming mad, which is understandable. I get it. But, to go from everything is working out on Sunday to homeless and broke by Friday. Wow, what a week. I am desperately praying. But, I feel like this is our fault anyway. I know God can work miracles he has done it many times before. This time I don’t know what to do. My husband is depressed and I am titering on the hillside. One wrong statement from anyone could send me over the edge right into crazy land. The kids still don’t know we have to move. That is a whole other dramatic situation. And move? Where, how? We have no income, no family to help, no bright light at the end of the tunnel. Heck, there isn’t even a dim light. My family will just once again slay me to pieces with judgement and condemnation because they think I am worthless anyway. The only reason I bring that up is because as soon as, our kids find out my 16 yr. old who is best friends with my 21 yr. old sister who lives with my parents, will all know everything and the bashing will begin. My husband’s side of the family can’t help bless their souls. They are wonderful and non-judge mental and they do what they can. So I desperately pray,” God please help us. Please open doorways and close doorways. Please give me strength during this time and help me to be content in all situations. Holy Spirit take my burdens and rest upon me now. In Jesus Name.”  I don’t know what will happen in an hour, a day, or a week for our family. I am tired and sad. I really am trying not to let my feelings get the best of me. I can only pray God works it out for us. It did feel really good writing this. Maybe someone else out their in their late 30’s early 40’s is going through this hard time thing. Maybe I am not the only Gen Xer out in the world who can seem to keep a house or a long term job. This next move will make house # 7 in 7 years for my husband and I. Before I was married to him I lived in 4 other houses. That is really sad and to say my credit sucks and I do not represent what a christian should although I have tried to pay off debts. In my heart I want to take care of these things but, it always seems like something comes in and wipes me out leaving me broken and more depressed and in debt. I will keep posting about our situation, mostly for myself so I  can see how God will bring us through.
