National Day Of Prayer

Today I prayed for many things and thanked God for the prayers he has recently answered.

I prayed for our currently society…the senseless crimes against the innocent simply to prove a point or quench a curiosity, the mentality of ” Because of this and that I get to do this and that to you. ” The embracing of things people KNOW are wrong just so they can prove to themselves they don’t have to listen to God. The just overall lack of all morals. The list goes on. So, I prayed and petitioned against this growing epidemic.

But first I thanked him. I had been praying for a safe home for me and my kids. And after months of prayer and petitioning, God preformed a miracle. He got me approved for a great place. And it is much better than I ever imagined. It is more than just 4 walls. It is an end to living off other people’s couches and spare rooms. It is an end to always feeling like a guest, leech, or house servant.

Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate all that has been provided for me in the past. But NOW I can a mom. I can provide for my kids. I can have full say over the lives of my kids and I. I can buckle down on us becoming a strong christian family. I can have Bible group meetings in my home and have a place to invite people over too. The one request I came to God with, a simple request of shelter, he took it and made it a more wonderful present than I can ever imagine. He is giving me a whole life through that one request.

I am reminded of those videos on YouTube where the kid who gets passed over on the team, finally gets the ball. He waits and waits for ages to get the ball and when he gets it he miraculously makes the winning shot.

God is getting passed over as we try to do it by ourselves or run to other things to fill the void meant for him. People have replaced God with ” light and energy from the Universe” . Replaced God’s will with ” Fate “.

Just think what would happen if each and every one of us gave the ball to God more often. If we all started offering small requests to God..how many different ways he could take those small things and make then into a masterpiece revelation of his glory.

Today, on May 2nd, the National Day of Prayer I encourage you to reflect. What one small thing can I petition God for? Hand God the ball and watch him WIN !

My Farm: Simple Blessed Farms

This week has been wonderful for me. I just started opening up my Microgreen farm. This has been a dream that has been in the making for years. It is my goal to go from growing Organic Microgreens to one day having a fully functional Homestead. So as the supplies ( like grow racks and lights, seeds, etc ) started arriving at the house, I couldn’t help but get a little emotional. I am literally watching my dreams begin to unfold in front of my eyes.

So, now the first seeds have been planted. I will nurture the Farm with all I have. However, It is up to God to allow it to grow.

My Guitar Journey – Day 1

Today is the beginning of my Guitar learning journey.  

I have always wanted to play guitar but never got around to it. I even bought one once but then had to sell it for bills. But things are going better so I just went and got this guitar, the Rogue 90,  off the internet for around 50 bucks. Of course, I would eventually like some super sparkly $10,000 Martin, Collings, or Taylor guitar someday, but since I am not even sure if I will stick with it I didn’t want to start by dishing all that out at the start. This Rogue has surprisingly decent sound for a guitar at this price. My only frustration is that it doesn’t always stay in tune. Still it’s a great start. And I am super excited to start learning may basic chords and scales so I can move on to start making music.  I think I might even film my progress over the next year just to see the difference from how I started at the beginning. Let’s see if this 39 year old dog can pick up new tricks.

The way I see it is it’s an excellent way to be alone with my thoughts and God but it’s a great way to share a piece of myself with the world. Who knows maybe I’ll get good enough to write some powerful song on it.

Do any of you play Guitar? What has your experience been so far?

Welcome: A New Start

Hello, Everyone !  Welcome to The Christian Hippy.

I deleted all my old posts and decided I needed to change everything from the site itself, from the feel and the direction of it.  Now it’s going to be me sharing what I’m discovering on my search for a more healthy , Godly, and free flowing lifestyle.

My Goals:

  • Get closer to God.
  • To build a lifestyle I don’t need a vacation from.
  • It’s my goal to go from Microgreens to a fully functional Homestead.
  • To discover and learn some musical instruments and various other artistic ways of expression until I find the one that really flows with me.
  • To get a new and safe house for me and my kids. A place they can call home.
  • Live a healthier lifestyle. ( Spiritually, Physically, and Emotionally )

I would like to invite you to share in that Quest with me. What’s your journey entail? Let’s share with each other and walk it out together !
