Is anything worth more than your soul?
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about your soul? Maybe this question comes easier to you than it has me. I had to dig way deep to figure out what the purpose of my soul is. I thought that my soul represented a safe, and all my mess-up’s and mistakes were just stored there ready for me to count. ?
1 John 3:20 NLT
Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings and he knows everything.
Why do we choose to fail? It's not like we sit around and decide "Today I am going to fail" right? That's what I thought, but a lot of us do just that. Sounds crazy doesn't it?
“When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.”
Proverbs 10:25 NLT
When I started my walk with Christ I understood that I will have to change a lot of things in my life. You can almost compare it to the super talented people on TV that buy a old beat down house, renovate it and flip it. First they come in with a demolition team, break the house down to the core; strip it of all the ugly and get to the basic needs of the house...
Almost daily we face situations in which we have to make a decision. The first logical response comes from your head telling you “ok, here is what we need to do”, and your heart beating you up says “this is what we would love to do”… and of course it comes down to a decision you have to make.
Okay guys, it’s been a while since I posted about my oils, but here I am! Let’s talk about Peppermint! Peppermint is one of the main essential oils we use. There are so many ways to use it that I don’t even know where to start.
One week down, two more to go…
For months now the idea that I need to be in Germany had been tugging at my heart. Naturally, I thought that God wanted to send me to Europe to expand my business. How wrong I was! Yes, business is good, but the reason I am here is definitely not doTERRA. I never thought that my faith would be questioned and tested the way it has.
So I finally made it to Germany. “Home sweet home!”. I haven’t been here in over 3 years and things seem very different to me, even though everyone is assuring me that nothing has changed. I have to say that I was just a little nervous about coming here and having enough confidence that I will NOT drink, nor will I get consumed by panic or stress. You have to know that in Germany it is pretty normal for people to have a couple of beers on their lunch break, after work you go have a beer before you go home, watching your children play soccer you stand on the sideline with a beer in your hand.
Oh my goodness! You guys HAVE to read The Bait of Satan by John Bevere. I am talking about some serious spiritual warfare. Reading that book was kind of like having a strategy meeting at the pentagon (not that I really know how that goes down at the pentagon LOL, but being a military spouse, I like to think I have somewhat of an idea). Just think of John as a 4 Star General that knows how to equip you with a weapon that can use to defeat anyone and anything that wants to cause you harm. That’s exactly what his book did for me.
Yes, I know this may sound just a little crazy, but all I had to do was to know who the enemy was and what kind of weapons he uses. Trust me when I tell you that Satan knows everything about you: your deepest fears, your shame… even your insecurities. There is nothing that makes him happier than to see you backed into a corner feeling as if there is no way out, beat by your own thoughts. Yes, he truly sucks. But there is hope All you need is the amazing word of God and prayer. Lots of prayer.
I pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.
I always wondered who I was suppose to be. I blamed the men that sexually abused me of robbing me of my future. I had wonderful careers, but my past always got in the way. I was always doing good for a few months, and like clock work my past would come back to haunt me. I'd start hiding things, pushing my thoughts out of my mind until they completely consumed me. Then I'd crash and end up going back to therapy. They would prescribe me different meds.
