Day 10 of 30 day Minimalist Challenge

Who are you?

Day 10 journal of my 30 day Minimalist Challenge

On 1-5-2020, I was reminded that I need accountability. I never voiced this until recently.

My mother never checked on me because she knew I would land on my feet.

In listening to the audiobook,

13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do [electronic resource] / by Amy Morin,

I realized that I have been living my life this way… without accountability. I’m the one who checks on others. And I never required, requested or demanded that people look in on me… to check up on my status in one area or another.

Even my husband has seen me as a Super Woman! I did have two lady friends around 2014 who were good at checking up on me. And when they moved away, I was devastated. Though I couldn’t understsnd my deep grief over their departure.

It was stemmed back to the familial saying, “Nek’ka always lands on her feet”. These two ladies gave me what I was missing… then they were gone.

I mentioned this a few days ago, in my minimalist challenge blog, that I’ve hired a couple of coaches for 2020. The year for praises and not complaints. So I’m incorporating my own helps and hand holding.

I’ve had mentors over the past 20 years and while I was given assignments, so many other areas of my life were unattended to or overlooked.

In Amy’s book, she was relaying a story of how a women’s family of origin had nicknames for all the kids and she was living up to hers even subconsciously. This woman didn’t examine her life to see if that label resonated with who she identified as an individual.

And I never shook off that label, “she’ll always land on her feet”. It’s good to know or believe that. But how is that suppose to happen?

When I land on my feet, are my ankles sometimes twisted? Did I break my legs landing on my feet because I had no assistance? I never saw negative in that statement. I was just doing my best to live up to that expectation.

Don’t get me wrong, I have some really good friends that I can call when needed. And we’re all busy with our daily lives. When I see them, we all get caught up on the latest happenings and have a good laugh. And then I go back to my world of “landing on my feet”… alone, as it were.

What childhood or early adult nicknames or statements are you trying to live up to? Do they resonate with your true identity, your core being? Write your comments below.

Single Mom Hangout at Walmart in Boise on Overland Dr.

October 26th at 11 am. Bring your kids for a happy meal from McDonald’s and a $15 Walmart gift card for you, dear single mom. You might need a new tshirt or want to buy that special coffee blend you’ve been wanting to try. Buy what YOU want.

If you need more help, let’s plan a 15 minute time to chat to see about other resources that you could tap into. I will have my resource notebook there where you can take pictures of places around town that offer different services.

Hope to see you there!

MY IDENTITY SHAPES MY ACTIVITY 

Actions Follow Identity

In watching and listening to the video listed below, I was struck by the phrase, “Has my identity shaped my activity?”

I recently had an opportunity to enter a business deal for the purpose of making lots of money. As I sat there listening to the pitch, I felt I had already answered that question expressing “no interest” in joining this person’s business in previous interactions. I was simply meeting them in person for possible future referrals.

Well, anyone who knows me probably would not descibes me as money hungry. Yet this salesperson was determined to play on that chord…like I would hear something and jump. Are you a salesperson like that?

Knowing my identity in Christ to obey and follow God’s leading, I told this person that if God wanted me in this business, I would be there tomorrow. (I’ve told many people this.) I try to give myself a chance to sleep on the matter before I give a definite answer.

I felt this question had been answered weeks ago and this person didn’t get MY answer. Maybe they thought I had changed my mind or that they could convince me to join.

As I consider single Parents out there, how many potential mates how come on strong like this? You say, No, and they are still trying to turn your No into a Yes. Is your identity in your marital status? I had that hangup during my 16 years as a stay at home single mom. 

Today, my identity is in Christ and not money, fame, worldly success or marital status.

Thank you God for good friends with whom I can  share my frustrations and good friends who keep pointing me back to You, Your will and Your way, in Christ Name, Thank You, Lord!

Luke 19:1-10

“Primary Identity:

For so many years, I have been affected by my marital status.  Married or single.  I’ve been both as an adult. And it has plagued me. The video was so right on about who or what I am basing my identity on. That affects how I am.

Who or what do you base your identity on?

Help us all Lord to based who we are on you,  in Christ’s Name! Amen!

Who is changing things in your life?

God took care of Jacob though Laban changed things constantly.

Who is changing things in your life?

I usually will stop dealing with people if they change their mind or with the agreement we had, they change it too many times. The scripture says to not meddle with them given to change. (Proverbs 24:21)

There is also another scripture that says a double minded man shall receive nothing. (JAMES 1:7-8)

Do you have people around you who seem to flow with the current wind of doctrine about life, finances, relationship, future plans and so on? And it could just be that they are listening to wrong thoughts of others or their own mind. Double mindedness is not good.

It could be seen as a crazy maker. Making the people around them crazy. You could be married to this person, it could be a friend or even a boss. I’ve had bosses that change their mind so much that an employee never knew what to think or what to expect.

Genesis 31 was an encouragement to me today in light of so many changes in my personal and business life. Changes being made for me or about my plans.

What is the solution? If you are not a Christian, I want to tell you that there is hope in Jesus.

If you are a Christian, I want to remind you that the Holy Spirit can guide you into all truth. (John 16:13) There might be some truth in what an unstable person is saying and doing. Though they are confused or double minded, there could be some truth on one side of what they are presenting.

So with the story of Jacob from Genesis 31, Laban spoke truth that Jacob’s wives were Laban’s daughters. Laban did pay Jacob something though he changed it multiple times.

And the biggest truth from this story and most important is that God never left Jacob. God intervene and let Jacob know when enough was enough and that it was time to go… to leave Laban.

Everyone’s threshhold is different for how much messiness they can handle and endure. And God can give strength and wisdom in the midst of the trials and tribulations without removing you. It’s called GRACE for the situation.

This could be seen as a good reason to become a Christian if you are not one yet! You might need some supernatural help and grace for your situation. God wants to be your defender! Let Him in by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Confess that you believe Jesus is Lord, that he was sent to earth for our redemption, that he died for our sins and that God in Heaven rose Him from the dead to soon after rise into Heaven to sit on the right hand of the Father. (Romans 10:9-10)

If you are already a Christian, cry out to God for a solution, for relief and even deliverance in his timing. God hears our prayers. He sees our pain and anguish. God will protect us if we put our trust in Him.

In fact, we know of people who seem to be protected and they are not Christians. Why? Because the scriptures in Matthew 5:45 says that he rains on the just and the unjust. He shines his sun on the just and the unjust. But we will all have a day of reckoning for the things we have done to other and things done in this life. Romans 14:12. Hebrews 9:27 says, it is appointed unto man once to die then the judgement. And another place, it says we will give an account of every idle word on judgement day. (Matthew 12:36)

Why not live this life with supernatural help from God Almighty instead of battling these demons alone? Why not surrender to Jesus to be Lord of your life and this specific area that you are being harrassed in? God told us to cast all of our cares on Him for He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7 )

The story of Jacob and Laban is in Genesis 31:5, 7, 12, 29, 42 (KJV):

Verse 5 reads, And said unto them, I see your father’s countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.

7 And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.

12 And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee.

29 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.

God took care of Jacob though Laban changed things constantly.

My name is Nek’ka Migel and it has been my please to write an encouraging note to those going it alone or needing just a little bit more help. Try surrendering all areas of your life to God who created the Heaven and the Earth.
