SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS

Staying in line and in order with what God has for you can be SO difficult. You have people watching every move that you make. People waiting in the wings for you to fail. And more so, people to bring up what “God said He would do for you.”

In my life, I have had to make some TOUGH decisions. Not based on what I think is right, but based on what God is telling me to do. And sometimes it makes absolutely NO sense to me or to the ones looking in from the outside. But what does make sense is the promises that He whispered to me ever so gently. You are responsible for what God tells you to do because no one understands the relationship that you have with God but YOU! Therefore there is no reason why you should have to explain to others what God told YOU to do. If He is constantly telling you to make a phone call to someone about a business deal and you have no money to bring to the table, there just might be a blessing for you on the other side. But it begins with FAITH from you in order to make the steps that He is asking you. Yes you don’t have any money, Yes you have never made a business deal before, Yes you have never had to rely on someone else to help you, but with God being your  mouth piece and fueling you, there is no way that you will loose!

You see, sometimes all it takes is for us to step out on faith and do that thing that God has been telling us to do. But the real problem is not faith. You have that. You believe that it can be done. It’s obedience. Obedience is the other part of faith that we forget about often. And it’s not always that we are not willing to obey, it’s that we don’t know what it will look like when we do obey. Or maybe we do. It may look dumb to the next person, so you don’t want them to think that you are some “Jesus Freak”. LET THEM THINK IT! God is NOT ashamed of you so why be ashamed of Him? He is telling you to do something for your own benefit! NOT HIS! **think about it**.

So my hope is that you find it in the depths of you to obey what God is telling you in this season in regards to moving forward in your life. It may hurt or be uncomfortable for you because you have never had to depend on Him this much. But I have been saying this for a couple of months now. Those who are plugged into God during this season and are willing to be radical for Him, will be blessed TREMENDOUSLY! The struggle is over. The growing part is done once you step out! The remainder of this year is harvest time and I guareentee you that if you allow Him to work in your life, and not worry about what it look or feels like, the rest of this year will be SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!!!! 🙂

It’s not them…It’s YOU!

Did you look in the mirror yet this morning? Did you get a good look? I don’t think you did. I don’t think that you took the time to look at the person who holds your future. YOU!

We run the game of “ah man, she never returned my calls.” ” I guess things are not going to work out, they denied me.” “I don’t know if this is going to work out, I think I am ready to give up.” BLAH BLAH BLAH! **Refer to my previous post, Failing Forward**If you allow rejection and fear to over take you, you will never get anywhere. This life is not about what people can do for you, sometimes it’s about what can you do for yourself! You have to be your biggest advocate and if you are not your biggest advocate, then who will be? Think about this quote, “Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.” Take that in for a second.

After you pray to God about your needs and wants, its up to you to start beating the pavement and getting to work! You cannot sit there in defeat and expect everything to just fall in your lap. “Oh please God, I need this and I need that.” “Please send someone to help me with this.” Ok. How do you expect God to bring someone to you and you are sitting up in the house crying about what you don’t have?! That is not going to work! Get off the couch. Off the computer. Put your shoes on. And start beating the pavement and knocking on doors and be proactive in your success! Sometimes I hate that we have so much technology in this day and age because it takes away from that face-to-face contact and genuine relationship of looking someone in the eye to do business. Sometimes it takes looking someone in the eyes to get that blessing that you have been waiting on! Yeah you can send an email, tweet, or Facebook message, but its just not the same. *Ok….that was a rant** It takes time to be successful, it does not happen over night. But I gurantee you, if you step up to the plate and work hard, all of those prayers that you sent up to God, will start raining down blessings. Remember, “Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.” WORK HARD today! 🙂

Fall in love…..TWICE!

I am a book lover, and I wanted to share a few inspirational books with you.

This particular GOOD read is about falling in love with God, again. Finding out the authentic way that God really loves you, not how society has depicted our God. **an angry/jealous God who punishes those who sin against Him** God is SO much more than a jealous God, “He will again have compassion on us; He will subdue and tread underfoot our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:19 AMP. Knowing this God will allow Him to love on you so much so that you come out of the “stale” place that you are in, in regards to your relationship with Him. Some of us hold on to our sins and past so much that it blocks God from blessing you when He already forgave you! Falling in love with Him all over again can and will ignite the dreams and the future that you have always saw for yourself! Take a look at this clip:

**Crazy Love by Francis Chan**

This is the AWESOME book ^^^^^^^ that you need to take some time to read and learn how to fall in love with God all over again to be fulfilled in life! Not because you want your blessing that is hanging out there somewhere, but because you deserve NONE of this that He has given you. You should have that fire of praise so far down in you that you automatically would want to praise Him for His mercy and grace upon your life! And in exchange for accepting Him and praising Him with a pure heart, God will automatically bless you! Live it and be in relationship with Him. He is in love with you and wants you to return back to Him with a PURE heart.

**Forgotten God by Francis Chan**

This book “Forgotten God” is the sequal to “Crazy Love” and it takes you to another level of understanding about the “Holy Spirit”, one who is apart of the Trinity “The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.” It has become common that we tend to forget that the Holy Spirit was sent here to comfort and guide us until the day comes that He sends His Son again. We tend to confuse the Holy Spirit with our own thinking and miss the mark on what God has asked us to do or say. There were SO many portions of this book that just spoke volume to what a lot of us as Christians go through, but more particularly us who tend to listen to the “fan club” than do what God has told to us. Here is an insert from the book that I highligted and highlighted:

It is about discerning and obeying the Spirit’s voice, especially when He asks you to do something that is hard, a little beyond “normal,” and that requires sacrifice. This is a twofold thing: It is both about encouraging others to obey the Spirit’s leading and about listening to and obeying His leading in your own life.

Could not have said it better myself. Sometimes we just need to ask God for the help ourselves and listen to His instruction and filter out everyone else. It takes some serious prayer and guidance to do this, but with the Holy Spirit giving you the gift of discernment, it is easier than you think!

I hope that you take the time to get these GREAT reads and apply the principles to your life to lead a life full of God’s love while walking out your heart’s desire.

You can find these books in your local library, amazon.com, or The Family Christian Bookstore! **They are on sale right now at Family Christian Bookstore until the end of August!!!**

It’s time

**IT'S TIME!!** Image by Google

Time for what you ask? Time for your dreams to be a reality. Time for all of the old notebooks you were writing in to be dusted off and get a FRESH…NEW….POWERFUL idea breathed into you!

Truth is, some of us have come to the point where we are stale. Just alive and not living! Not living the dream that has been purposed for you. The dream that has been in you and so alive, and then something happened. Fear. This one little negative word took a hold of you. Took a hold of you so much so that you just decided to fall back. Decided to allow your insecurities and others to play down your dreams.

I mean really. Think about it. You have allowed MAN….a person who has NO DOMINION or AUTHORITY over your life to change the whole plan that God has destined for you? REALLY?!?! I have been in this place before and when I look back at it….it’s like really Kim? Who cares that no one believes what God told you to do will ever succeed. Let’s put it like this. If Noah never adhered to what God told him about building the ark, do you think that you would even be here? What Noah did saved man kind even though God wiped OUT mankind! Do you know how important his job was? Really! Your assignment can be the next big thing that God is using to save a generation.

Take what you have in the depths of your belly and birth it out! Come out of fear! Come out of depression! Come out of self-defeat! Come out of negativity! Come out of confusion! Do what you KNOW is right in the eyes of God NOT man! You are to live for an audience of ONE…and the ONE that I am referring to is GOD!! Become the MAN of God you KNOW you are to be! Become the WOMAN of God you KNOW you are to be!

The time has come for you to come out of this “rut” and do what you know! The pity party is over and and IT’S TIME to just do it! The blessing is on the other side of your trouble, and the only way to get there is to get out of the stale place and take your blessing! Speak that thing! Walk that thing! And KNOW that that thing is yours! It can only be done when you believe and know that it will be done in Jesus name! So what are you waiting for?
