Reap and Sow into 2015

IMG_6918-0.PNG

Food for thought: So now that Christmas Day has come and gone and the end of 2014 is around the corner, take all the time and energy you used to prepare for Christmas and get ready to start a new chapter in the story you call life! Yes a new year begins every year come January 1st but think about how many times you have started over and over again the same way. Ignore the negativity and the voices that drown out your value and worth. You were made for more than this. You have everything you need to take the first step to success and it starts with yourself.

Look inside yourself and change out that chip that is on repeat and put in one that means REAP. Reap what you sow and that means you must invest in yourself and believe that what you are going to set your mind on this year of 2015, you are going to bring to pass. No more repeats but rewards!

Make this last week count. What are your goals, visions, passions? Write them down and make a vision board of what you are going to accomplish this year. 2014 and years past are gone. Make 2015 the beginning of the rest of your life.

Much success and
blessings for 2015,
Zaida

Goodbye Until We Meet Again

IMG_6400.JPG
Today we say our final goodbyes here on earth to a dear friend of mine. Losing her was so unexpected and harder than I thought especially when my brain was expecting to see her at church on Saturday night and then reality kicked in when I saw Her spouse alone.

When your life here on Earth comes to an end, nothing except who you are as a person is what people will talk about and remember. It won’t be about how much money you had or what you owned but about who owned your heart and the light that you brought into every person you came across in your life. Seasons, Reasons or Lifetime, be the person that will forever impact those around you…even if it’s by a simple smile, hello or thank you. I pray to live out my life that way and serving Him.

Thank you Princess B for bringing God’s joy, love and light into my life. We all at our women’s group are feeling a tremendous loss and it really won’t be the same without you.

Give Back Friday

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! My family began the day serving others at a community outreach and our children learned how blessed they really are, not just in food but in many things.

Last night while on our way to yet another Thanksgiving gathering, we passed an older lady all bundled up at a bus stop with all her worldly belongings she had. I had my hubby pull over and ran back to give her my sweater. She was asleep so I said to her excuse me. She immediately replied in Spanish, “Hola Mija” which is a sweet Latin term of endearment. I asked if she was cold and that I wanted to give her my sweater and she politely declined and said she had all she needed. I asked her if she had eaten and she said yes she had. She was very sweet and she thanked me again for my concern and that she was fine thank God. This homeless lady taught me a valuable lesson last night. She was thankful for the little things she had and even though she was thankful for more, did not NEED more than she already had.

The majority of us don’t get that concept and unfortunately never will get it but on this thanksgiving I was grateful for this AHA moment. I am thankful for God’s blessings He has given me and the things I don’t have because I have faith that whatever I truly need to survive on this earthly world, God will continue to provide for…no more, no less.

So last night with a little nudge to my heart and full trust, I would raise the bar a bit higher on this book goal. With just 3 days left in our pre-sale purchase of “A Moment with Jesus” devotional and at only 20% of our goal reached, I am starting today a match “Buy One Give Two”campaign!!! For every book purchased, TWO books will be donated back to ministries! Let’s help give back more to our communities then what we need. Go to www.rkthb.co/50707 or for E-book version and paypal purchases go to www.leadershipchristiancoaching.com/store

Pay it Forward

When God places a goal or vision in your heart, you must follow only in faith.  His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways.  A few years back, God placed in my heart to begin to blog and write.  I began to feel a huge tug in my heart to be obedient and follow His guidance.  The road the last few years has been a roller coaster of trials and emotions as life usually is.  If we did not encounter those trials and roadblocks in life, we would not continue to build the courage and strength to become all that God has planned for us.

This devotional has been all in God’s timing and when I woke up a few weeks back with the burning desire that the time had arrived for this project to move forward, I had no doubt that God would move the way He has.  But through it all, He still leaves me in pure awe and wonder.  This is His project and His mission to bring to pass.  I pray He continues to fill me and all of you with wisdom and knowledge to show others His unconditional love.  I am praying and believing for the last hurdle yet on His vision on this devotional I wrote.

Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:17

Since God placed in my heart to make this project a Pay it Forward, funding support is needed through partnership pre-sales to go to press.  For every presale partnership, a paperback copy of this devotional will be donated to a shelter or prison ministry.  Please share and spread the word!

Ready…Set…GO!

green light Yesterday was a day of awestruck wonder!  Have you ever had a dream or received a specific word from God that you could not decipher what it meant or what you were suppose to do with?  Well I have and what happened to me yesterday was the beginning of a journey God has planned and planted in my mind over 3 years ago.   Sometimes when God gives us a vision or goal, it is for us to receive that idea and pray about what the outcome will be not immediately move on it.  We must sit and wait until God has worked in us, through us, molded us and prepared the way for His plans to come to pass and only then will we get the green light to go. It can be days, months and like in my instance even years but when God let’s you out of the corral, you will be soaring on Eagle’s wings with determination and excitement!

Hello! My Name Is…

name-tag-11

Hello my name is Zaida. I was once lost but now I’m found.

Does this sound like you too?  That’s ok because we all go through this at one point or another in our life and sometimes several times at that.  As I prepare to finish my 40th year of living and enter my 41st, I look back and analyze all that has come and gone.  I have referred in the past to life as a roller coaster full of thrills, spirals, fear falls and straightaways.  When I meditate on what God is doing in my life, I can never explain it or understand it at times.  What I do know is that when I call on Him or cry out in fear, God calms the storm brewing in my mind and heart.  One way I always feel comforted and in union with the Spirit is when I listen to worship music when I am writing or needing an escape from this world.  I once heard a beautiful song that said, “Hold me Jesus because I’m shaking like a leaf.”  These words resounded in my core because so many times I have called upon Him when I have felt that storm arise from within.  Jesus is the only Prince of Peace…Yours and Mine. When I can’t be strong, I don’t have to be because He is my strength.  When my heart and soul is in need of repair and I thirst for the Living Water, I call upon Jesus to fill me.  Don’t ever feel that your problem or situation is too difficult or too small for God to handle.  Nothing is impossible for our Heavenly Father. NOTHING!

Here is another beautiful song I can relate to because I have fallen hard flat on my face many times in my life and I thank God that I am still covered by His Grace and unconditional love.  I hope it will speak to your heart as well because it is always Good to know that no matter the circumstance, God ALWAYS welcomes us in His presence.

Hello, old friend
I know it’s been a while
I’m here again
And it won’t be the last time
I fall apart
But You won’t let me get too far
You’re speaking to my heart[Chorus]
It’s good to know
It’s good to feel the arms of grace
To know that my mistakes are covered by Your love
It’s good to know
It’s good to see that You won’t change
When it’s said and done
You’ll always be enough
To know that I can always come back home
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, OhGoodbye, old me
Yeah there’s so much more that I
Know I could be
So take my worries with
You when you leave
There’s hope that I am counting on
‘Cause I’m never too far gone[Chorus]
It’s good to know
It’s good to feel the arms of grace
To know that my mistakes are covered by Your love
It’s good to know
It’s good to see that You won’t change
When it’s said and done
You’ll always be enough
To know that I can always come back home
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, OhIt’s good to know
That there’s a second chance
Know that it’s all in Your hands
Even if I just don’t understand
‘Cause I know that I will be alright
I finally see the other side
It takes the darkness to open up your eyes
SometimesIt’s good to know
It’s good to know
I’m covered by Your loveIt’s good to know
It’s good to see that You won’t change
When it’s said and done You’ll always be enough
To know that I can always come back home
To know that You will never let me go
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
