Into the Word

Isn’t it funny how persistent God can be when He is trying to tell you something. Especially when you keep ignoring what He says, putting it off saying that you don’t have time for that.

You see lately I have been praying a great deal over my Young Living business. Our financial state is a mess, and I know that Young Living can be a great means of financial abundance. As of right now, I am praying that the Lord will lead me to the rank of Royal Crown Diamond. I am certain that I can’t do it without His divine intercession, but Royal Crown Diamond rank will allow me to get my family out of this financial mess, to provide well, to pursue other long-term goals, and to be in a better position to help others when I see a need.

The Holy Spirit has convicted me heavily lately about my lack of time in my Bible. I have tried to read the Bible cover to cover three or four times now. I managed to make it well into the New Testament the most recent time before I became “too busy” to read the word daily.

The things I was busy with were important. There were beneficial. I was reading management and business related books. I was reading about Young Living and Essential Oils. I was listening to conference calls and podcasts. I listened to podcasts from my favorite preachers, to business leaders, to social media gurus, and to MLM (multi-livel marketing) superstars. I was excited, and I was learning. I also wasn’t making any money. I was also neglecting God and my family.

 

So day after day after day the Holy Spirit would turn my glance toward my Bible and tell me, “That is what you need, Sara.” Over and over I let other things fill my days, saying that I didn’t have time. Things started to become much more persistent as I heard the Spirit tell me “You won’t make it if you don’t spend time in the word.” It still took a few minutes for me to finally obey and pick up my Bible and start over in Genesis.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not only in the Bible for what I can get me, or to make money in my Young Living business. I finally listened to Him because I remember the way I felt when I was reading daily. I felt a sense of peace, a sense of joy even, in my time in the word. The time spend reading the word, and learning new things, seeing things for the first time, made my faith stronger, and made me stronger in a time that was really quite painful.

Valor

Let me tell you one thing that has really stuck with me within my first couple days on the path I should have always been on. There is the story of Joseph. He is sold into slavery by his own family, but the Lord slowly promotes him to a position of great power, and in the end, he is able to save all of his family, God’s chosen people from death in a famine.

What strikes me in his story though is his humility through everything. His constant insistence that his gifts are not from him, they are from God. When he is asked to interpret dreams, he says that he can’t: God can. So God reveals the meanings and Joseph is able to give people the answers they seek. Throughout the whole story of Joseph, you see him attributing his skills, his abilities, and even his power to God. It is not him, it is God.

 

I pray that as I grow in my Young Living business, that I always remember that it is my God who has blessed me, that I cannot do anything without His hand. I also pray that I will be a good steward with my blessings. With more money comes more responsibility to spend wisely. I most certainly will need His wisdom as those days come.

Memory Lane

As I was cleaning up my twitter account, I found some old posts that were fun to read and see. It was a nice trip down memory lane! It is so easy to forget different events, and the cute things the kids have said, so I enjoyed the record of things I have posted. Some of the posts weren’t of happy times, but the majority of them were.

Booth1st

I came upon the picture above. That was the first Young Living booth I ever did, with my amazing up-line leader Sara Wallace. She was so much fun to spend the day with. I was very nervous, but she has an ability (much like her mother) to make me relax. I very much enjoyed doing this booth at the church I was going to at the time. Many years later, I still have only done one other booth. I was alone that time, well, the baby was there. I still enjoyed myself so very much. I relaxed with the help of my essential oils, and focused on meeting new people.

NingXia

I found this picture on my facebook while cleaning it up. I laughed remembering going to work shortly after posting it. My nurse was curious why I posted so excited to show off bottles of wine. No bottles of wine! It is the always needed NingXia Red. Besides, due to Oklahoma laws, we can’t have wine delivered here anyway. Thankfully, I can get my NingXia!

Poet

Then there was this picture my husband took of me after lunch that was provided when I had a poem published. I remember how many dresses I had gone through before I settled on that one. I remember how excited I was. I had loved writing poetry as a child, but I hadn’t written in years. I promised myself that I would keep writing it, but I haven’t written any since my Freshman Composition II class ended.

There were other pictures that I won’t share of a very painful time. Even then, it brought me to a picture of my husband being baptized, a wonderful event! I saw some pictures of a time that I felt was incredibly awful, which was really just the beginning of a great amount of peace. Those trials were necessary for me to grow.

I will end this post with a picture I took several years ago of one of my kids’ shirt. I can always use the reminder that there is no time for me to focus of the words of those who have nothing better to do that to hate. I choose to move forward, and hope that you will join me.
