Jesus is on the Mainline….Call Him Up!

Ultimately, all prayer is for the glory of God. The best answer He can give to any prayer is whatever answer brings Him the most glory. -The Battle Plan for Prayer

Whats going on, my people? Its been a while since Ive talked to you. Laughed with you. Expressed my frustration with you! But alas, Im back to share some of the things Ive learned.

So, let get going.

Lets talk about the Mainline. The mainline that Jesus is on!

Yes, Honey! So, heres how it all started….

I’ve always wanted a space of my own in my house. Like a little craft room or office, but as of yet I havent been blessed with one…so I thought.

I decided I wanted to start going after my dreams; making things happen right where I am. It may not LOOK like I think it should, but God has given me ALL of my needs. Therefore, my dreams are at my fingertips.

I had previously made a conscious decision to get rid of ALOT of my clothes. I adapted the policy of:

1- Having only as many clothes as I NEED (not want)

I only have 4 pairs of jeans. Can you believe that?

2- only keeping clothes that I absolutely loved how they fit on me. If I only somewhat liked it, it had to go!

So anyway, I realized that the Lord blessed me with an amazing thing.

A WALK-IN CLOSET!!

I began to clean out my closet and give all my clothes away. With all the extra space I was able to create a corner for myself. *claps hands* I was so excited!

AND THEN GUESS WHAT HAPPENED!?

I saw the movie WARROOM! OH MAN!! It was like I was getting direct confirmation from God HIMSELF!! If you havent seen it, go see it.

I began to use this space for my devotional time with God, and adapted the A.C.T.S. policy in addition to my prayer journal.

Adoration- When I give this to God, I make sure that its legit. Meaning that I say things that I really mean. At first this was difficult because I didnt really know WHAT to say that would be what I really thought. So, I was real with myself and God. I only said things that I could really idenitfy with. Ex.- You created everything. You know how everything works. You are wiser than I am. Cheesy stuff like that.

Confession- This speaks for itself. Air all that dirty laundry to God that He already knows about.

Thanksgiving- I realized very quickly that there is MUCH to be thankful for. Im so blessed beyond measure!

Supplication- So this is when I start asking for stuff. By this time, I dont ask for what I initially thought Id ask for. Crazy, right.

I feel like this method really puts me in my place:

Adoration: Who God is.

Confession: Who I am.

Thanksgiving: What God has given.

Supplication: What did I “need” again?

Something else that I realized is that God wants to prove Himself to us. He want us to worship Him. Thats what He wants.

Heres the problem….

Do we want, what HE wants for us?

AND THAT BLEW MY MIND!

The key to answered prayer is to wholeheartedly desire what God wants for me.

Its that simple.

If we genuinely, in the purest of hearts, want what God wants, He will answer, and be worshiped.

Matthew 6:33- Seek ye first the kingdom of God and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS and ALL these things will be added unto you.

John 14:13 Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!

If the heart changes, the prayer changes!

My spiritual life has completely changed, guys!

But that’s another post.

Its Been a While, Again.

Im really terrible at this.

I love blogging.

I love talking about my kids and expressing my random thoughts.

What am I terrible at?

Consistency.

I create these grandiose ideas in my head. Perfectly executed. And when I fail, boy oh boy, the pity party I will have.

Usually , I get down on myself about how inconsistent I am.

How ADD I am.

Why cant I just get it together.

I learned recently that Im ok.

Its ok.

Ill try several dozen times.

Ill fail.

And Ill get back up again.

Ill always make the choice to get back up again.

SEE! That’s consistency!

And thats TotallySuperMom

My Goodness!

My Goodness!

Ok, Guys. So much has happened since the last time I posted.

Lets see….

It was my anniversary! Hubby sent me on an adventure. He gave me 7 envelopes and I had to go on a wild goose chase around the city to get my gifts. SWEET! Yeah, I know!

I’ll post about it soon!

And then my son turned three…

and sent us literally running behind him in Red Robin….

Yeah that’s def a post that will be coming soon.

And we put our house on the market and had to go on a cleaning frenzy….

What else?

OH!

I started a 48 day fitness challenge. Im currently about to close day 8. It has been fun, challenging, rewarding, among other things.

The best part?

Hubby is doing it with me! WHAT FUN!

Im a mother of three wonderful children.

I love them so much and they are so worth every stretch mark I have, but my goodness! The body goes through crazy changes when going through the process of having a baby, and trying to get back in shape isnt easy.

BUT…..

Its that time again.

1)Ive gotten the hang of being a mother of three……
AND
2) My youngest is starting to eat food other than breastmilk.

YES! I can leave for more than 2 hours!

Its time to begin the process of remodeling my body, but here are some things I want to be clear about.

And I hope every woman who reads these words can relate…

If Not…Lets work on that!

I LOVE my body.

The extra weight that I have is from LITERALLY making a baby-bringing life into the world.

My stretch marks are a reminder that Im superwoman.

My body DOES NOT determine my beauty or my worth.

Id stil be beautiful if I were obese…

Im all that and a bag of chips….

Im cake and Ice Cream…

Fitness is my cherry on top!

Dinner it is!

I had dinner with the most beautiful, wonderful, loving person I know.

I mean, you wouldn’t believe how beautiful this woman is! I look at her in awe everytime I see her!

She’s a great mom!
She’s an artist!
She a wonderful person to talk to!
She’s so loving!
She shoots from the hip and tells you like it is!
She’s compassionate!
She has such a big heart!
She’s so much fun to hang around!
She’s always searching for ways to make herself better!

I just can’t put into words how great she is!!

And even better….

She paid!!! How cool is that!?

Yeah.

I had dinner with ME!!!

There’s nothing cooler than that 🙂

That’s Totally Supermom

Bag Lady, Eh?

When I was a kid, there was song that released entitled “Bag Lady” by Erykah Badu. I recently heard this song playing somewhere and it really caught my attention so started listening to the lyrics. Although Ive heard this song thousands of times, I never really caught the psychology behind it before. (Oh, you didnt know? Psych stuff is my “thing”)

I wonder how many people actually love this song but dont REALLY get what she’s saying.

We were given a set of circumstances in our life. Some of us have bags others have luggage. (I dont know about you, but i was dealt the “luxury” of being given luggage)

Some of us are more aware of the extra weight we carry than others.(sometimes I think I may be overly conscious of mine)

What’s interesting though is how this baggage plays a part in our everyday life, and how we pass this baggage down from generation to generation.

What baggage are you carrying? Oh, and if you say none…you have tons.

Are you going to continue to carry it or drop it off at your next stop? (Dont know how? Keep fighting until you find out)

Drop that baggage, Girl!

Thats Totally Supermom!
