Journey thus Far

After a bout of uncertainty over the first part of the year, life has taken a turn for the better in many ways in the latter.

My wife and I enrolled into Integrity Bible Seminary: she is going for her masters in missions, and I’m working on my associates in theology. By the time we have completed our education we will not have our doctorates: this will help us in our ventures into the ministry field, which is something we desire to be able to do full time.

Four months ago we started our own business, Leap Generation LLC. It has been slow, we think we could have taken a better approach with it. We currently are in the process of revamping the business. We started it with the main purpose of it being a way for us to support being full time missionaries. We don’t believe where we started is wrong, but it would make it more difficult to do while overseas.

One of the things Daddy (God) has began taking us through a period of preparation of training, not in just one area of life but in all aspects of it.

He told us to sell our TVs that they were to much a distraction, to put away ‘childish things’. The training will cover everything from what we eat, drink, do, think, say and much more.

Another part of the process has been to start learning Spanish, which has been fun and interesting to say the least. We picked up two complete (OT & NT) Spanish Bibles: this being the case because of where we feel the Father leading us to go; which are Central and South American regions.

Downsizing: getting less materialistic items for the sake of just getting them, or even to fulfill desires isn’t important to us any longer. Now we weigh things in the scales of calling and Divine purpose. Does what we desire to attain furthering the Kingdom and the Gospel thereof? This is the wisdom that drives us in what we don’t and do acquire in life.

Another one of the things Daddy has really laid strongly on my heart to do is to really buckle down and write a book. This is something I had dabble with in the past but put off doing, then when I picked it back up, Yahveh stopped me from completing it.

I fully believe it wasn’t it wasn’t the right time, nor the right focus on what He wanted it to deal with. But now He has laid it heavily upon my heart to revisit and finish writing this book.

We are both very excited to see where the next three years open up, to where Daddy leads us for His Kingdom!

God is Still in Control!

We have been through a lot the last 2 weeks. Just want to share a few testimonies that God has done for us the last few days.

Last Monday when my husband got off work he went to leave and the van had antifreeze all under the van. He called me thankfully before he drove it. Well I called my dad and he informed me that we should not drive it at all. So I called my husband and told him that I would have to come get him.

This made us go from 2 vehicles down to 1. My husband was a wreck over the whole situations. For some odd reason in this situation I was at complete peace about it. Not once did I question the situation. My parents were leaving town for the week and we were able to get their other vehicle for the week to use.

When my parents got back into town my dad went to get the van. By the end of the day Thursday my Dad texted me and said that it was fixed and ready to be picked up. I asked him what was wrong with it and he said it had broken… I then fully expected for him to tell me how much it was going to cost since he fixed it. I asked him how much it cost and he then informed me that it was still under warranty.

God had given me a complete peace about the whole situation. I knew when it happened that there was nothing we could do about it. For we have put all our finances into our business and have nothing left to fix it. Now we were blessed with this issues being completely taken care of by the Grace of God. It was still under warranty.

God will see us through the trials and what seems like nothing. We will walk this out with our Leap of Faith! He said Leap, that the Time was Now! Now I will Walk in Faith Knowing He is In Control!

God Bless,

Just Have Faith! Leap! Fully Relying On God! 

365 Days of Testimony: Day 31

I am grateful and thankful that I am blessed with Good Health. 🙂 I am super tired right now so I will make this short and sweet.

I have been working super hard at work and nothing seems to be getting accomplished. I have do plenty and am always busy. I get caught up in looking at things through my eyes and not the eyes of my Lord. I will do one thing and have 10 more come on me. That is okay because I can handle it. I do need to realize that running myself down is not the way to go about my life. The same work will be there whether I complete it in one day, week, or month. I have a job to do and even if it is slow at first it will get done. I am grateful for my job that has worn me out the last few months. Many changes and lots of unknowns. But I assure you that there is One Known that will never change… That is that Abba is on the Throne! Jesus Conquered the Battle for me.

All he asked me to do was run the race and finish it. I want to run the race well. I want to complete it, not start it and then lose direction but to win the race and finish it well.

He will give us rest. He is our everything. God thank you for your rest, and your divine health that you give through Jesus Christ Blood on the Cross. I am truly grateful that your timing is perfect in all your ways. Not my way but your way..

Don’t forget to rest. Don’t grow weary, in doing well. Don’t give up hope. Stand firm on the Word that you may have life and life more abundantly.

 

365 Days of Testimony: Day 29

I was gone from Texas last week for 5 days. Then this week I had to work late and didn’t get home till late. My parents kept my kids another 3 days this week and I began to really miss them. So today I made it a point to spend some time with them.

I finally got over to my parents house and we decided to go watch a movie. The movie was good but I think the best thing is the part where Stormy and I make fun of each other because we both were trying not to cry. Looking over her direction to see her smile back because she knows just exactly what I was thinking.

On the way home I was driving the back roads and I knew a bump was coming in the road. As I began to go over the bump, I said, “Weeee!” To my surprise Stormy reacted by trying to hit me. Both Stormy and Chloe jumped…. We had a good laugh on the way home.

It is the little things like laughing together and knowing what the other one is thinking that is a blessing to me. I love my girls with all my heart and I am thankful God saw fit that I was good enough to raise them.

Enjoy the Small Stuff with the ones you love.

365 Days of Testimony: Day 21

God gave us a beautiful day today after a week of rain and flooding. 

Don’t forget the reason we celebrate this weekend is because God loved us so much that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in He shall not perish but have Everlasting Life.

Spend time with family and friends and share why we celebrate Christ who arose on the 3rd day. He is coming back for those who believe in Him.

Happy Easter! He is Risen!

365 Days of Testimony: Day 19

I want to share how God has blessed my husband during his time he has been at his job. My husband got the job he is at in less than 24 hours of looking for a job. That in itself is a God thing. He worked there a little 2 months and became full time with the company. He is now being used to help train others to do what he is good at. I am very proud of my husband and how he has allowed God to bless him and guide him through every step of the way. His job does daily bonuses cash if they do good throughout the day. This week God has seen to it that everything he has touch was blessed and prosperous. God has put favor on my husband and has allowed him to do good at a job he really enjoys.

Watching God give my husband a job that he enjoys is a blessing to me. I am grateful God is showing us how to be His light and love to others we work with. My husband and I both have noticed over the last 2 to 3 months and increase in co-workers coming to us for prayer, and uplifting words. They have seen a difference in our walk where ever we carry His love. I pray that God will continue to shine through us and help us learn to walk with Him daily as we seek out those who are lost, hurting, lonely, and hungry, both physically and spiritually.

God is doing a new thing in us as a family and our ministry has just begun. I am ready to Shine bright to make a difference that I know only God can do.

365 Days of Testimony: Day 15

I want to share with you a blessing God gave me 15 years ago that just keeps giving more.  You see this blessing was my 15 year old daughter. God gave me her to change my life for the better. Stormy has a servant’s heart, always willing to help others. She has been  my pride and joy. She has grown into a beautiful young lady that soon will be leaving us before we realize. It has been a joy to watch her grow over the years. I remember when she was little I would tell her that I love her all the time. I told her that I loved her so much that I figured it would be her first words. Over the years that love for her has grown. I am very proud of her she has good grades and is very caring. She longs to help others in need. I love you Stormy.

I thank God for my daughter He entrusted me to raise. Everyday I am learning something new. I pray that I train her up right in the way she should go.

I think that God that His love for us grows as well. He is pleased with us as we grow in Him.

365 Days of Testimony: Day 9

It has been a very long but good Monday. Work was good and seemed to go by quickly. After leaving work I had a doctor’s appt that went well too.

My daughter had to show rabbits for the first time today. They didn’t place but she learned alot. I am proud of her.

My oldest daughter will be turning 15 on Sunday and it seems like yesterday she was just born. God gave me this child in the middle of a life style that could have been a bad one. If it wasn’t for my oldest child who God gave to me to raise I am not sure what or where I would today.  Stormy was my turning point and she changed me for the better. I am so blessed to be her mom. I have enjoyed watching her grow up but I don’t want the last few years of school to go to quickly.

I know that God is going to use her in a mighty way for His Kingdom. She has always had a servant’s heart and the
courage of a mighty warrior. She will be on the front lines on the battle field. She will do might things for God.

I am Blessed to be trusted with such a treasure of Abba’s.

Excited to see His plan unfold for her.

365 Days of Testimony: Day 7

Today has been a blessed day. I got to spend it with my two beautiful daughters. My oldest daughter will be turning 15 soon and since her grade are up I decided to reward her with letting her get her nails done for her birthday.

So we went and joined my best friend and got our nails done then went and visited at Sonic for lunch. Enjoying each other’s company.

The girls and I then went to Walmart and enjoyed shopping and getting things needed for the house. When we got home Stormy went to work with her show rabbits and then Chloe went to play outside.

When Stormy made it back home she headed the lead of crawdad fishing and then I had a knock on my door where all the kids in the neighborhood brought them to show me what they caught. LOL

My parents brought us dinner and then the girls and I enjoyed a little time together watching a movie. Off to bed before church tomorrow. I love my girls and they are my pride and joy.

I thank God for these two. They are such a blessing in my life. I wouldn’t know what I would do without them.
