***GET READY***

*** GET READY*** That’s what I’m hearing the Lord say this morning!! Has God put something in your heart that has been a desire of yours for a long time, maybe even years? God said to GET READY!! Start preparing for the journey! When you are equipped to do what He’s called you to do, He will send you forth. Get the training, study, prepare, practice. It’s coming and soon. I’m believing for many it will be before December. To God be the glory for the dream in your heart and spirit. And God will get all the glory when He sends you!!! So, *** GET READY***woman reading woman speaking woman traveling woman working out woman feeding the poor

DREAM WITH GOD!

street talk 1

I am NOT of this world. I am in the world but not of the world. My mind, soul and spirit should respond to heavenly visions that God gives me. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. What we lost because of sin and our sin nature needs to be redeemed in order to live out God’s full plans and purposes for our lives, and that can only be accomplished as we are led by the Spirit of God.

We must submit our will to His will, so that we can see and live out the heavenly vision He calls us to. He became poor so that we would become rich. He gave gifts unto men and gave us power over all the enemy. So why not move forward into your heavenly call and ask God to give you his dreams and plans for your life.

I remember when God called me to write a tract about salvation in plain English and to call it Street talk, so that anyone could understand the message of salvation. I had no idea how to accomplish this. I did not consider myself to be a writer.

Two years later, the vision was still in my mind and my heart. I begin sharing this with a printer that printed materials I needed for marketing. He said Cathy I have a whole skid of paper I will give you, if you will just pay for the printing. I didn’t have the money for printing, but after sharing what the printer told me, my friend said she just received a check and she would give me 3000 dollars for the printing! My mom’s friend knew someone at her church who’s son was a graphic artist. He created the drawing that I gave him from the picture that was in my mind.

All of this was accomplished and I didn’t have one word to go on the tract. I told God I didn’t know how to do this. I asked him to give me a thought and he did, so I started writing. The words fit perfectly on the paper and I received 50,000 tracks!

I worked for a Christian publishing company at the time. Two chaplains came to the publishing house at different times. One of them was going back to Iraq. He asked me if I had a tract that he could have to put on the table because the men were grabbing up whatever they could about God, knowing they might lose their lives. I told him I did, but I didn’t tell him that I wrote it. The other chaplain who came in was from California. I also distributed them in the juvenile correctional facility for girls that I went to weekly. So the tracks that God told me to write, went around the world!

So many testimonies have happened since then. God is so good.

Dream with God let him so you what he wants you to do. Then began to open your mouth and share it with others. He will open the doors and your vision will appear before your very eyes, for His glory.

I would love to hear from you if you have a dream or vision that God has given you.

Until we meet again DREAM WITH GOD!!

Highly Productive!

I am determined to be HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE!  The alternative is weak.

A successful entrepreneur or business professional, requires you to be a highly productive person.  I admit there are many times during the day, my thoughts tend to wonder.  That’s why I have to draw my attention back to my purpose for being. 

In order to be highly productive, I have to plan, then FOCUS on each action step.  As a prerequisite, I have to avoid distractions.  That my friend takes determination! 

There is no alternative to success and peace of mind; until you make right decisions you will continue making the same mistakes.  

As you purpose to be highly productive, everything around you AND inside of you will change;  your dreams will actually start forming, and eventually BE a reality, right before your eyes! 

Have a Highly Productive day!!

Wisdom

My prayer this morning was, Lord don’t let me die in my ways, but let me LIVE in yours. God’s ways are not our ways. His ways are much higher and better than ours. Proverbs 3:13-15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The True Wealth:
13 Happy are those who find wisdom,
and those who get understanding,
14 for her income is better than silver,
and her revenue better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
In every business manner, in our relationships, in our finances, in every decision we make, we need GODLY wisdom. When I go to God in prayer, He gives me His wisdom. It’s a mystery, its’ wonderful! 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 (NIV)
God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit:
6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
STOP, right now, and ask God to give you wisdom. Throughout the day, pay attention to your thought life and use GODLY wisdom in your decisions. Your life, your business, your finances, and your relationships will prosper. You will have joy and peace that you can’t even explain, and God will receive glory! Choose to be wise.

Discipline Yourself

In order to complete the call on our lives, and live the life we desire, we must incorporate a disciplined lifestyle.  My definition of discipline is:  LIVING BY RULES, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED OUTCOME.

YOU get to set the rules for what YOU want to accomplish.

As women, we are often “moody”.  U-hum… yes, I said “moody”!   Women tend to be more emotional than men.  So trying to get everything done and be the GRAND woman we see ourselves as, will not happen if we do not have a disciplined lifestyle.

The problem is, that as we are tied to our emotions, we often act or react on the spur of the moment.  I know I have, many times.  I would go for a few days and do really well, then it was over, LOL…, Spur moment kicked in gear and off I went following my immediate desire, and didn’t use discipline AGAIN, and would find myself in a harried state.

Do you want to gain control of some areas, or EVERY area in your life?   DISCIPLINE  YOURSELF!

Remember, YOU get to make the rules for YOUR desired results.  Stop looking around at what others have, and make a list of what you want, and do something to get it.  You get to decide how long it will take you, and what you can do to accomplish your desires.   I guarantee you will feel much better about the outcome of a disciplined life, than letting your emotions rule you!  Start using those emotions to feel good about being disciplined:)

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

THE OPEN DOOR

Many times we do not move forward with the desires of our heart because we feel inadequate.  I had so many different talents I wanted to pursue, that I didn’t know where to start to be effective for the Kingdom  of God.  I would pursue this, then that… but never really focused on my gifts.  Why?  Because of FEAR!

I felt I wasn’t good enough, didn’t have the right connections, enough education, etc. etc…  When you see, God called me to do something and it’s been in my heart for  a long long time.  I’ve had man tell me that I couldn’t do something, and was downright rude about it.  In my heart I believed I could, but when it came  to really pursuing it, fear crept in and stopped me.

Several years ago, I went through a really hard trial.  I was dying to myself and trying to follow the Lord the best I could, when all hell seemed to come against me.  I couldn’t understand it at the time.  My boss and three other department heads, and one of my employees were speaking against me.  In fact, when I spoke to my boss about my employee cursing me, he said “Oh, she probably didn’t mean it”, and then proceeded to tell me that if I didn’t raise sales in a particular area, that I would be fired after 12  years, and that I had 90 days to change. 

Instead of blaming everyone else for being wrong, I asked God what I had done?  I didn’t want to get angry and do something out of anger, so I sought the Lord.   And in the mean time, I raised sales 70% in an area that no one was prospering in!   And during that time when I was so down, the Lord spoke to me one night after a church service.  I’ll never forget, it was January and very cold outside.  My girlfriend suddenly had a pain in her side, so my friends and I immediately started praying for her.  The Holy Spirit visited us in such a special way, it was wonderful.  I asked my friends to pray for me too!  I wanted to feel His touch. 

The Holy Spirit not only touched me, He spoke to me.  I will never forget it.  He said, I WILL OPEN A DOOR THAT NO MAN CAN SHUT!

Oh, how wonderful it was… I knew then that my job was safe as long as the Lord wanted me there.  After my 90 day trial was over, I asked my boss to let me know if I was to continue working for that company.  He said he had never seen such a Christ like attitude, and that my job was safe.  I stayed another 2 years, and then my department closed. 

That allowed me to start my own business, and begin a journey that I knew God wanted me on. 

I will continue to follow the desires of my heart, and know that there is an open door, because I am doing what God called me to do.

Let me ask you…  What is one of the deepest desires you have in your life?  What door is available to you now?  I’d say, WALK THROUGH IT, and let the Lord lead you the rest of the way!

Revelation 3:7-8

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia, write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My word, and hast not denied My name.
