Deep Faith Monday Fire Series #46 – Put In All The Efforts

Putting in all the efforts today? Life happens. Have to get up for work or take kids to school or both. Have to figure out dinner plans for after work or attend a school or work function leaving little time for yourself to guard your mind and heart with efforts. You cannot go thru life without the efforts coming in or going out.  The effort is what leaves them little cracks for bad thoughts and feelings to come in.  Perhaps a bad thought about a coworker or a bad thought about the lady who just cut you off in the school line.

Efforts EK 12219 SFF

Take time to put in all the efforts of prayer, obeying, to know and follow GOD. Without effort there are racing thoughts or planted thoughts that make you put focus on them rather than our LORD. There are outside forces just waiting for one to put a halt on all the efforts we must have, use, and obey daily. Go out daily  & seek GOD’s word, put in all the efforts today to get closer to HIM and make it a better day, week, month, and year. Putting in all the efforts today make for a better day in everything and every goodness you are bringing forth.  Only thru these efforts can we hear and rejoice in the joy. In the effort and constant seeking of GOD there isn’t any room for distractions or unplanted thoughts. Only direction, guidance, and love.

Headband Box JOLLY MOOD Launch

happening right now!

We are Jolly!

Jolly Mood Season 112919 EK SFF (1) 

I’m so excited to be sharing and creating! You friends have been inspiring us to create a headtastic experience to be shared this season! And you literally sold us out last time!

SALEs WILL HAPPEN IN THE SHOP TAB!

I’m a self-declared headband bandit by default. My beautiful baby daughter is the one who inspired me to attempt to make her a monkey headband.  I love a good challenge. Wore a good one to the store and the store clerk was so impressed to know where did I buy it at? An idea sparked and has blessfully grown into these beautiful headbands!

I have been gathering all the good stuff, handcrafting and designing each individual headband with the same love that was put into it for my daughter when she first asked for her monkey headband! There will be no monkeys this time but plenty of fun color, glitz, and glitter all flipped into one!

Be a VIP to be notified ahead of time! We sold out super fast last time! 

<—Click Here to get on our JOLLY MOOD Waitlist!

I wear the headbands and people will ask where I purchased them from. What a hooting story those are!  My daughter’s friends will purchase them from her. My husband has sold some right from the top of our heads.

I have sold thousands to girls little leagues! Now that one tickles me and what a blessing!

And… it’s all 100% handmade.  I have destroyed a few good manicures I’ll say.

I am obsessed with colors, materials, glitz, & bling and making heads prettier and sparkle!  Did someone say GLITTER!

For a limited time only!

You Are Granted Permission

Whatever you are seeking to do in life, job, change lifestyle, or change something for the better of your current status. You are granted permission from the most high. Everything that you are seeking that will improve your life, your families life, your job has been granted from above.  Anything that you cannot foresee or are seeking to get to create, develop, change, or go toward too, you are granted permission from the most high.

Monday 072919 EK SFF

There isn’t really a wall. It’s ourselves stopping us from progressing to the next steps.  Yes, them hard and scary steps, but necessary steps.  What we have developed in our mind is an invisible wall that seems to stop us from going forward.  You are granted permission from the Most HIGH.  Granted permission to succeed. Granted permission to progress. Granted permission to doing it scared. Granted permission to fail, fix, and grow. Now give yourself permission.  Give yourself the opportunities.  Give yourself permission and extinguish that invisible wall.  Give yourself permission for HE has granted you permission since birth and even before.

Ask, Believe, and Receive – Deep Faith Monday

ask believe rec 7119Estela Kelley SFF

Do you find yourself constantly ASKING or constantly PRAYING on something that will help you move forward? Constantly asking/praying for something that you are putting all your hopes and efforts into. Questioning if this is the right direction you should be heading to? Do you find yourself quivering through some uncharted territories? Do you find yourself asking on things that you may want to try, questioning if this side hustle is for you, or wanting to switch gears in your profession? Ask and pray all you want but the answers will be revealed. Answers are revealed in the silent moments. When least expecting something to be revealed.

Then the Believe stage occurs after the revealing answer is on your lap, in your head, or smack right in front of you. Use your discerning powers to assess if this is right for you. The answer is revealed so now it’s up to you to put action. Move forward, pivot, or shy away.  If you claim to not have discerning powers then use a sheet of paper to decipher some pros and cons in your head. Then you can move forward and receive.

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor Podcast Episode 30

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor? Scarcity is in all areas of our walks of life and things. Sometimes we need to be aware and limit ourselves to this.  What is a scarcity mindset? It seems so vague but stay with me here as I demonstrate some of these layers. Layers such as having more than enough, hoarding, jealousy, unacknowledgement, and inherited scarcity. And how to grow out of this mindset. This was a testy podcast, I must admit but as one matures into the right spirit of things is when there is real change, growth, and gratitude!

Remember to wait for that glossy shine in the oil to shine thru before tossing in your steak onto the hot pan. It doesn’t take long.  If the oil burns, it can change the taste of the entire meal so make sure and have all the prepping done. At this stage, you can also toss in a few red pepper flakes, if you like some heat to it. As the oil heats, the red pepper flakes will release it’s natural oils into the pan. Discard all of the remaining marinade.

Podcast Episode 29 GOD KNOWING

Podcast 29 GOD Knowing

A few months ago, I kept hearing this one phrase Be Faithfully Driven. And so I did Podcast Episode 21 Be Faithfully Driven. And I’ve kept this going throughout my podcast even before I recorded Be Faithfully Driven.  I couldn’t do any of this without HIS help and guidance.  When I’m stuck at something, a new concept, idea, or a just learning something entirely foreign to me, I know that GOD has my back.  It’s not GOD willing because HE’s always willing.  It’s more of GOD KNOWING. I know HE knows everything but I’m now in the receiving end of not only asking, believing, & receiving.  I’m in the KNOW.  I’m in the Pray, Trust, and Wait. Pray, Know, and Wait zone.

Work From Home Tips And Balancing Family Life

Lot’s of people work from home just like the abundant amount who work outside the home.  But if you are the type who works from home and has to juggle a family and work life,  I have some tips to ease that during the summer.

Work From Home Tips & Balancing Family Life (2)

There are several types of work from home.  For example,

  • someone can work from home but has regular 8 to 5 office hours for a company. The kids and family have to understand that you cannot play hooky on your bring the bacon home money position.
  • Then there’s the other part time jobs where someone works for a company but half day hours.  This type of job allows the part time working parent to do most of their work in the AM hours and off the rest of the day.  Which is a much ideal way to balance work and family activities.
  • Next, is the bread winner who works from home but all the work is performed outside the house, such as a plumber, AC repair man, contractor, etc. This type of job is similar to the 8 to 5 corporate job.
  • Lastly, is the work from home entrepreneur that can work any hours of the day but preferably has their own schedule and has to juggle the family life. Sometimes there are times when they have to leave the house to do the job.

These tips are for the work from home entrepreneur that has to balance work and family life while the partner is away doing their big boy job. For starters, I’ve provided a list here.  You know I love a good list to keep handy!

Prayers For Everyone

Are you a prayer snob?  Do you only pray for your immediate and closest family and friend circle?  Do you only prayer when you or they have a request?  Are you finding yourself to be truly compassionate and not saying sly remarks onto someone or a situation?  Are you truly meaning your prayers or do they just fall short of reaching up to our Heavenly Father?

Prayers for Everyone Estela Kelley SFF 61619

There are people of all walks of life but it’s up to us to pray faithfully, pray for the less unfortunate, and pray for everyone.  Even the one’s who have hurt us or the one’s we don’t particularly get along with.  We may not ever get along but pray that situation will simmer down.  We should uplift one another all the time. Pray with a thankful heart, send prayer requests for the meek, pray for the world, and know that goodness is within HIM.  GOD is good all the time.  Send prayers for everyone.

He is pleased in us when we are pleased with helping others. Helping in many ways such as giving, charity, and prayers. Making a difference with your time, skills, and talents for the good of others. This is a pleasant offering to our GOD. He sees our sincerity, love, and concern. Be patient with others that aren’t caught up in our world in mind, spirit, and work. We need to see from the outside in and develop patience for our world and send prayers for patience for yourself and prayers for others. Send prayers for everyone.

Acts 10:4 Your prayers & gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before our GOD.

Creamy Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

Creamy Cheesy Casserole EK Sunday Dinners

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner’s!  You are most welcome to take a visit and have a seat at our table for another incredible Sunday Dinner dish.  I remember my Mom always had the biggest meals on a Sunday. I’m talking about homemade from scratch meals.  Do I do that….hmmm…every now and then. But mostly I find taking some short cuts, pre-prepping, or take out is best for this busy Mom. I should really have a new title. MOM should stand for Multi Optimizer of Missions.  Sounds good to me. That will be another time as long as I can have my own cape! Another time! Another time!

Let’s get to gathering before we gather at the table. This is a great recipe to only make half or prepare it all and then freeze half before baking.

Reasons Why You Should Just Get It Going

Life is complicated and easy at the same time. Sometimes one’s mindset gets is one of the main obstacles. But it’s not necessarily just the mindset.  It’s everything in between as well. Such as Ourselves, Family, Work, Family again, one’s daily duties and so on. Then one can’t focus or create a focus from a desire. But sometimes, that’s when one should just get it going.

 

Don't Worry About Getting It Right, Just get it Going Estela Kelley SFF

Remember when you were a kid and you would get in an argument or little disagreement with one of your friends or siblings, you would so put so much focus on that, that you couldn’t even begin to do anything else. The wheels are just spinning out of control in your head.  Bad ideas be churning up in there.  So all you do is sit around going over the fight in your head.  Now you’re putting so much focus on that.

In a sense, when you are fighting with your internal self, it’s the same thing.  No focus. Ideas and procrastination all churning around in a hamster wheel. What you do, is just begin.  When you are wanting to do something, a long forgotten desire, a submerged talent or idea that wants to resurface.  Allow it! Don’t Worry About Getting It Right, Just Get It Going. See, you can’t have momentum and worry at the same time.  It’s like that magnet game of putting two negatives so they never stick.  And neither will you, your idea, or anything you don’t put worry aside in a box and get it going.

So for you friends who like this even more broken down.  I’ve provided a list of reasons why you should get it going.

Get List Here.
