Ok, any diy’ers out there. I just started building maybe 2 years ago. Since then I’ve gotten better. Yet, still learning. But I’ve learned I truly love it. I really like getting that wood and creating something in my mind and building it. I learned it doesn’t take a lot or any schooling to build. I’ve found many, I mean many people, including women, on the internet that build furniture, house deco, etc, without any formal training. For years I’ve always wanted to do something like this but didn’t think I could. Until I did it. I found I am good at it. I praise God for this. Several weeks ago I had a yard sale. Prior to that I was doubting my ability to build, so I asked the Lord about it. Well, at the yard sale God sent three people to help me with my question. Some months…

Ok, any diy’ers out there. I just started building maybe 2 years ago. Since then I’ve gotten better. Yet, still learning. But I’ve learned I truly love it. I really like getting that wood and creating something in my mind and building it. I learned it doesn’t take a lot or any schooling to build. I’ve found many, I mean many people, including women, on the internet that build furniture, house deco, etc, without any formal training. For years I’ve always wanted to do something like this but didn’t think I could. Until I did it. I found I am good at it. I praise God for this. Several weeks ago I had a yard sale. Prior to that I was doubting my ability to build, so I asked the Lord about it. Well, at the yard sale God sent three people to help me with my question. Some months prior I built a cabinet. A BIG cabinet 😀. Personally, I liked it but I noticed some imperfections. But all in all it was a nice build. For months it sat in our garage waiting for me to decide what to do with it. I wanted to keep it, but couldn’t figure out where to put it. It was too big for my kitchen. There was so much considering what to do with this big piece of furniture. After months of sitting in the garage I decided to have a garage sale, and so I put the cabinet out there. During the garage sale there was three people who helped me with the question I asked God. It was a couple, a retired furniture builder and the buyer. The couple liked the cabinet (really liked it) and wanted it, but didn’t have a need for it. So it sat in the yard, waiting. Then another couple came. The husband was a retired furniture builder. He was impressed with the cabinet. He made really great comments and commended me on the build. But didn’t buy it because they didn’t have a need for it. But the fact a professional builder liked my work really, really encouraged me. Then the final person was the man who bought it. I sold it for cheap (God is still working in me), but someone thought it was good enough to buy. I was over elated. That was the day I received my answer from God. When others doubt what GOD has given you to do, keep going. If you doubt, ask Him and He WILL send you an answer.
SN: I just started refurbishing old furniture. I believe I could include this in my diy’ing. But I love building better. I prefer wood dust over poly dust from sanding over old finishers. I prefer the smell of newly cut wood over the smell of furniture stripper – lol. I plan on doing both, but I really enjoy building. If you like to see some of my builds, just ask. I also plan on doing this as a business. I’m currently doing some projects that I plan on using to show I can do this. SN to the SN 😀: Please, don’t let ANYONE discourage you because they don’t believe in the plan God gave you. The Lord God told me not to let others unbelief cause you not to believe. Gotta just love our God

Say who you are…   Leave a comment

Last week, I was talking to someone about a subject the Lord has been teaching me. Her son was very angry and bitter. Instead of beating him up with more negativity or telling him stuff like “you should know better” or “you keep acting that way, you’re going to hell”. She told him who he is in Jesus Christ. She told him what God says about him. She DID NOT condemn him. So many times we address people with how they are acting. There is a time and place to address a person in that manner without condemning. But why don’t we try looking past what they are doing and tell them who they really are according to God word. The sad fact is so many of us Christians don’t know who we are in Jesus. I’m not talking about a title or position. Those are just things we do. They aren’t who we are. Before you “shake your head” at a person, or say they are going to hell, or say they are the “of the devil”. Tell them the truth about who they really are. So many don’t know who they are. So many can’t see themselves as God sees them. It’s not they don’t want to. But maybe they just need to be encouraged. The devil will cause issues to cause us to get bitter, have ungodly anger, fearful, etc. But it’s our responsibility to build one another up and not tear down. You want a person to turn from sin. Which is repentance. Then do as God does. Show goodness. Remember, the BIBLE reminds us it’s the goodness/kindness of God that leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4). And when the temptation come to them to be bitter, or any sin, they can speak the truth in who they are and that devil will flee. We shouldn’t speak what we do or a title because the devil will only laugh and WILL NOT flee. Since I’ve found out the truth of who I am, when temptation come (from the tempter/satan) I say who I am in Jesus Christ and that temptation leaves. NOTE: Key word – Temptation comes from SATAN. I even said “God, that’s not how you made me”. God did not create us to be thieves, adulterous, liars, haters of men, jealous, etc, etc. And since I’m BORN AGAIN, I am a new creature in JESUS CHRIST. I am not a slave to sin. Too many times we state “I’m only human”. That’s not altogether true. I have a spirit also and it’s been changed to the same Spirit from Jesus. I am a slave to righteousness. Jesus righteousness. Not the righteousness from this world. Money is not my god. Man is not my god. A career is not my god. Fashion is not my god. Food is not my god. My looks aren’t my god. Those things did not creat me nor die for me. There is ONE GOD. He sent Himself to earth as Jesus Christ. When Jesus went back to Heaven, He didn’t just leave us hanging. He left us His Holy Spirit. Just as Jesus is, so are we (1 John 4:17). By the way, when this young man heard the truth about who he really is, it brought tears. That’s a sign of change.

Forgiveness   Leave a comment

Some years ago someone did something to me that some would say is unforgivable. But God said differently. God said to call that person and say I forgive you because when you come to yourself you need to know you are forgiven. I heard people say forgiveness isn’t for the other person, but it’s for “you”. Every time I hear or see someone stating that remark, the Lord always remind me what He said to me that day. Forgiveness is a free gift that NONE of us deserve. BUT the MOST HIGH GOD gave it to us anyway through His Son, Jesus Christ. None of us can say who’s deserving or who isn’t. Jesus died for us ALL. Remember the thief on the cross. Remember the woman caught in adultery. Remember the blind man. Remember Peter. Remember Paul. These are just a few people God showed His grace and mercy to. Look in the mirror and remember yourself and how He forgave you. And remember how you aren’t deserving. BUT He did it anyway. That’s just who He is.
