Fifteenth of April ~ LIVE TO GIVE ...

Today is the fifteenth of April. I'm in complete shock that the fourth month of this year has half way passed. Each day brings something new, and in that we can always trust. It may not always be what we'd hoped for, but I've learned that if you put your hope in Christ Jesus, in His perfect timing, He'll surpass every hope you've ever had. The visions we've had for our own lives are only a glimpse of what He has to offer us. 

I played the Q & A game yesterday on Twitter, which also posts to my facebook. I answered as many questions as I could before I had to leave last night. It's always so interesting to me to see what people REALLY want to know. If you give someone an opportunity to ask ANY question in the world and they ask you if you like fishsticks, what does that mean?? haha... 
Anyway, someone asked what a day in the life of 'kaci' involves... 
and in answering that, it starts out by reading something like this --

"Listen! My love is approaching." Song of Songs 2:8

For several reasons, I am absolutely positive my husband, Keith, loves me. He shows me in all sorts of ways. For one thing, he tells me he thinks about me often during the day. I know this is true because he calls me at least once or twice at work every day. He testifies of his love for me to others. Often someone will tell me they've seen Keith, and then they'll remark, "He sure seems to love his wife."

If you're married and your spouse is not as loving, please don't despair! I can tell you that God graciously delivered Keith and me from filing for divorce on several occasions. Don't give up! God can work miracles!  -Beth Moore
 (Breaking Free Day By Day)

"Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over..." Luke 6:38

God wants you to be happy! He wants you to live a satisfied life. Jesus said, "I have come that you might have and enjoy life, and have it to the full -- until it overflows!"
A major key to enjoying life is that we live to give.
True happiness and true fulfillment come when you give of your life in some way to others. God promises to multiply back to you what you give. When you step out in faith, you open a door for God's hand of blessing to move on your behalf. It's the simple principle of sowing and reaping. 
God has a specific plan for every one of our lives. His plan involves reaching out and touching other people with His love, mercy and compassion. Ask the Lord to show you how you can share His love with others by giving of your time, your talents and your resources today.

PRAYER FOR TODAY;
Dear Father, thank You for the precious opportunity to share Your love and compassion with others today. I know that as I step out to give of myself, You will use me to be a blessing to others. Thank You for Your goodness and mercy, which follow me all the days of my life. 
-Joel Osteen (30 Thoughts for Victorious Living)

I'm currently listening to "Be Blessed" by Karen Clark Sheard, while writing this blog. I spent the morning cleaning and preparing my apartment for the "final walk through." I'm moving out first of May, so they have to come at some point today to make sure I didn't trash the place. ;)

I have several business calls and emails to take care of, but it shouldn't take too long. I've had a few song ideas I've wanted to sit down and work on for a while, but balancing my schedule has been a bit of a challenge. I'm in the midst of contractual negotiations on a few things right now, so unfortunately my creative side has been slightly neglected for a couple of weeks. 
Pastor Desiree is preaching at the 7pm service at my church tonight. I'm looking forward to hearing her. She's an anointed woman that always brings fire! 

I have a very handsome man in my living room playing guitar right now. It's nice to have someone around that's so musically inspiring. I'm going to wrap this up and see if I can't go catch on to a few things. ;)

I'll have videos and new pictures to post as soon as I get my camera back from the shop. 
YES! It's STILL GONE. :(

I pray you all have a SUPER BLESSED DAY!

My love & thanks for reading,

-k-

ps. my iTunes jumped to "If I Fell" from the London Strings Orchestra. It's on the "The Music of The Beatles- Across The Universe" album. If you don't have it, I suggest getting it. 
LOVE IT!!! <3

Kaci

It really is inspiring to see the Love that you have for God and Jesus. Not many have it these days that I know, let alone those who will profess it. It makes me realize that I need to be a stronger woman and not keep God on the backburner - always keeping in mind that I need to "do the right thing" because of Him - but actually doing the right thing in His Name.

Bless you, and thanks for the morning inspiration.
