BEING ME - PART 2

 

Sowing Seeds of Finances into a Ministry

When we sow financial seeds into a ministry, we partner with a message that we didn't develop. Our financial seeds allow us to walk with leaders who may walk in more spiritual authority than we do - or at the very least, they have a circle of influence that we do not.  And when we sow financial seeds we open up the possibilities for revelation and breakthrough to be brought to us in areas that we haven't been able to reach before.

Sowing financial seeds is not linear - it's exponential - it's kingdom.  God doesn't operate in a one dimensional line.  And He doesn't even operate in 3 dimensions.  There are infinte amount of ways that God blesses, brings provision, provides wisdom and revelation when we sow financial seeds into kingdom messages that break the hell off of people.

If you doubt it, then see if you can account for every single revelation that you've received from pulpit, from a CD, or from some Godly wisdom you've received.  It's all come from a seed - and most of them couldn't have got to you without someone sowing seeds of finances.

My Wishes

The thought keeps running through my head: "I've improved in those things that I've consistently spent time on."  So what about those things that I'm "wishing" about? The reality is that I have spent little to no time on those things.  Why not?  Here are some of my internal reasonings:
 
  1. They seem too big to accomplish.
  2.  I have to learn something new.
  3. They require an investment of time to learn and to do them.
  4.  I have to spend some money on learning or materials. 
 
Ha! As I write this, I realize that these were the very same hurdles that I faced when I started writing my book Whispers of God.  
 
They seem too big to accomplish.
Whispers of God was always going to have poems, paintings, and commentaries.  So here's the list of everything that had to be done:
  • Who was going to paint the paintings?  How would we collaborate on them?
  • What were the content of the commentaries going to be? 
  • Where and How do I get my book published?
 
I had to learn something new.
  • I had to learn to explain the things that I see/felt represented my poems and the heart intention behind them.  I had to keep my heart open to what the artist was doing to see if it aligned with the poetry.
  • I had to learn how to write a story so that my commentaries spoke to people.  Writing the poems was simple compared to this.  Especially after having an editor give me feedback!
  • I had to learn to lay out a book in Microsoft Word.  This one took alot of patience!  Formatting had never been my strong suite, but if I didn't set it up right, then there wouldn't be consistency across the pages.
 
They require and investment of time to learn and to do them.
Whether it was spending time rewriting commentaries or learning how to layout the book, there was a serious amount of investment of time.
 
I have to spend some money on learning or materials.
I spent significant amount of money to have the paintings made and to print my first sets of books.
 
I still have the same amount of time I had when I developed my book, so how do I find the same passion within the other areas that I'm "wishing" about to actually start making something happen?  I Googled "Changing your wishing into doing".  Here are some of the resources I may look into:
 
 
If you're still reading, then you get the juicy tidbit of information about me.  My "wishes" are:
1.  To have a regular beauty routine for both my makeup and clothes
2.  To have a autoimmune protocol menu plan that tastes good and works 60% of the time for the whole family.
3.  To have a completely organized and decorated home top to bottom.
4.  To be fully satisfied on who I am to God, that I don't feel less than because of what I don't accomplish or haven't yet become.
 
What about you?  How do you help yourself jumpstart a "wish" into a doing?  What are your "wishes" you'd like to change to "doings"?

BEING ME - PART 2

I wrote this poem in two stages. The first four paragraphs were written around the concept of the consequences of being me. I was going to title the poem initially "The Consequences" but changed it because the prize is Being Me and the consequences are truly a sideline issue and should not be our focus point.

The rest of the poem was written at a women's retreat where the goal was to rekindle the fire of dreaming. We spent Friday night and all day Saturday being encouraged to open our hearts to dreams that had been suffocated. Sunday morning in the courtyard of the hotel, I was able to have some quiet time and wrote the remaining portion of the poem.

"What person or people did you cling to looking to inspire
Stroking/breathing/fueling their desire"

Was inspired by Paula Baker. She shared a story that weekend about how she always had a heart for those with mental disabilities as a young adult. And she has since come to be in a position to minister to them http://www.ntxsnap.org/.

"The weariness in the marrow of your bones" was a description of how I was feeling at that time, and the longing of being free like a child seemed as impossible as going down a rabbit hole. The part of "revealing your heart, scars scales, and victories is an image of how I view myself - transparent. Even though it may take some time to become a friend that you would invite over to watch a movie, I am always open and free with the depth of the journey that God has taken me on and the struggles that still avail me.

BEING ME - PART 1

The story behind Being Me is all about my pursuit to be a part of "The Group"..the cool ones...the ones with all the friends...the ones that make you laugh and that you want to be around, but I never fit in with that crowd. I was socially awkward throughout my school years, very bookish and unable to relax and enjoy myself.

I spent most of my years up until my 30s trying to be like everyone else, acquiring the capability of transforming like a chameleon – becoming whatever group I was around. But it was sucking the life out of me. By pursuing what everyone else was like, I was rejecting myself in my own heart. This changed when I was challenged by my mentor, Kay Newberry (http://www.destinynetworkalliance.com/ ), to find my own heart and value it like a treasure.

It has taken a lot of soul searching, purification, and forgiveness to bring me to the point where I can see my value. And I still have dark places in my heart about it, but God has brought me to the point where I can be transparent with my struggle portrayed in my poems and still know that I am valuable. Please watch the Being Me Video clip.
