Angie

I am Lesson 3-

1. It was stated in the Lesson that God has made you "once, twice, three times a lady." 

where are you in this progression?

I think I am still in the ONCE phase. 
 
Have you been born again spiritually?

Yes- I do believe I have been born again- but I am still on wobbly feet- learning to walk.

2. Has God given you a stirring deep within your Spirit to be a deliverer?

I am not sure if he has given me a spirit of being a deliverer. Honestly I am not sure if there is some "great" calling on my life.  I have desires- but often times I have no idea if they are JUST great ideas or from the Lord. 

3. Do you ever get tired of waiting for the opportunity to do something worthwhile for God?

I look at my children as my opportunity and purpose. I do get tired but not of waiting, of working.(haha)

Do you ever feel God is using someone else instead of you?

Often times I see women whose homes are so much more in order, and have this living for Christ down pat- I often wonder what I am doing wrong and what I am not doing. What am I missing?

4. What do you consider "worthwhile ministry"?

I do feel like being a mother is a worthwhile ministry(sometimes- haha) I truly believe in the heritage for Christ!!

Are you like me and sometimes find yourself mistakenly thinking it has to be Big to be Important?

I think more like- it has be recognized to be important. Being a mother is the most unrecognized, unappreciated job of all time. (at least that is how I feel sometimes) 

5. Have you ever taken a spiritual gift test?
NO- 

Those photos I promised

Here is my princess with her little brother- showing how they filled their bucket!
This what the baby did most of the time we were picking.. He did wake up towards the end. 

The babies first Berry picking! 
My Man-here my second eldest is showing how the blackberry was almost as big as his thumb!

This is my gentleman and my sweet spirited one. He is always so easy going and loving... he was my partner in the picking process.
Here is my second to the youngest! Everything is a competition for him, so him and his sister beat everyone at filling their buckets!


                            My biggest baby picking- He is 17 years Old and handsome as handsome can be!

Ok- Siestas

Hello ladies.. I am slowly working my way through lesson Three. I do have some good excuses for my "slow" process. If a busy life is acceptable then that is what I have had the last two days. 
Yesterday I had to go shopping and those Siestas that are from Texas know that in some places that can be an all day thing. 

Today we had some fun, I took my children to go Blackberry picking for the first time ever. We had so much fun!!
Here is some photos of my  Babes picking blackberries. I will tell you I had a hard time even with the big ones keeping them out of their mouth!!

Ok I was going to add photos but my internet won't let me so I will try tomorrow... 

Good night Siestas!

Lesson 2 of I Am Study

What is "your" initial response when anyone suggests you are beautiful?

Often when someone tells me I am beautiful I have a hard time saying thank you. I look at them as if they grew a second head.(haha-) 

Do you find you engage in alot of negative "self talk"?

I do speak negatively- my husband tells me all the time that I need to stop. 

How much of your thought life does this form of thinking consume?

Depends on what it is.. and what the situation is will depend on how much negativity I am consumed by. 

What is the most radical transformation you've witnessed in an individual after they were born again?

My own transformation- I came from an abusive home, physically, sexually, and mentally. 
Demons plagued me. I experienced spiritual war fare in my life and it burdened me in my young years. When I became born again, and released myself to Christ; He released me from those demons. These demons use to plague my dreams, keep me fearful to live, and be happy, but thank you for the blood! I have been set free!!!

The imagery of being a City Girl has absolutely changed the way I perceive my worth before God. Does it yours?
Yes- to think that He will beautify the meek through my Salvation in Christ!!
Wow- how unworthy but what a booster to know that it is not my worth that I receive this beauty but through Christ. 

Amen?!!

My Memorial Day weekend


For all you siestas out there- just in case you did not know, my family are huge soccer NUTS. I have 3 that play soccer, the eldest has decided to focus his efforts on his refereeing career, so he is no longer on a team. I have two soccer referees in my home. So needless to say alot of our weekends are filled with SOCCER- and this weekend was no different. Maria spent the whole weekend on the field fighting for the Memorial Day Cup. They took first in there division. Though it was hot it did not stop these girls from winning. 

GO WAVE!!


Hello all...

Hello my Siesta(Beth Moore's word for Sisters-Love it) 

I have decided to start this online bible Blog Study that Preacher's Wife wrote. It has already started my wheels turning in my mind and heart. The very first question:

 Are there any circumstances or relationships in your life where you can see God has intentionally placed you?

Yes- many! A few grow heavy in my heart!

What do you perceive may be at stake if you do or do not speak out for Him?

The person's soul will be lost for eternity. They will not walk with me into the gates of heaven and I will spend the rest of my eternal life knowning I did nothing, said nothing and do not do what God intended me to do.

Can you Honestly describe yourself as a woman with a "yes" in her spirit?

No I can not say I can- I would like to fool myself and those around you to say I am but when it comes down to it.. I have failed!

If not what keeps you from this?
FEAR- fear that the person will see my words as judgement and not concern for their eternal well being. Fear that they will reject me, as they have rejected Christ. Fear that it will drive this person away from me, and my life. (my heart grieves over this)

Do you recognize any circumstances in your life which could be described as an "unrecurring event"? 

Yes!!  

Have you ever said "no" to one and watched God use someone else instead?

NO- I have not intentionally said NO- and I have yet to see God use someone else in this person's life to speak HIS Word, Way, and Love!

Are you in an emotionally and spiritually healthy place?

NO-

What do you feel is holding you in your Egypt?
Honestly I do not know! I wish I did know- I do hope it does not take me 40 years for me to come out of the wilderness.

I had to share this..


Dad reading to Noah from Angie Sellers on Vimeo.

Noah reading with his daddy... too cute!!

Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds a house, the builders' work is useless. Unless the Lord protects a city, sentries do no good. It is senseless for you to works so hard from morning until late at night, fearing you will starve to death; for God wants his loved one to get their proper rest. 

Wow- what an incredible reminder that if God is not part of it, if he is not the one moving your hands, part of your motivation that you are working for NOTHING. How many times have I done that? Worked without the Lord? How many times have I tried to do things my way? 
Forgive me Lord.. this was just a huge reminder that that without the Lord, I do things with an emptiness. 

Children are a gift from God; they are HIS reward. Children born to a young man are like sharp arrows to defend him. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. That man shall have the help he needs when arguing with his enemies. 


Praise you Lord for giving me this gift a long time ago. My children have always been my gift. But notice that the scripture says they are HIS REWARD. Though often times we view our children as ours, they really do not belong to us. They belong to the LORD! He has given us the most important job, to raise them up, loving, and knowing the LORD!

May this Word embedded itself in your heart today as it has mine!

We are so proud of our Girl!

She is on the road

Well my sister left early this morning. I hate having to see her go. It was hard to see the sadness in HOnor's eyes. It hurts me to think I can not be there for them. It hurts me that I can not spend the day with my sister every day or least know she is close if I need her.

My heart is sick.. what I want the most though is for the Lord to protect them and get them home safely.

More later...
