God Chose Moses!

This morning in my quiet time I read Exodus Chapter 2: God chooses Moses. Too often I feel as if the Old Testament doesn’t have much going on for me, today, however, was different.
There are many lessons I took away from Moses and his mother. Here are a few:
Special opportunities may come our way unexpectedly. Don’t let the fear of what might happen cause you to miss an opportunity God gives you and take full advantage of them.
Applied to my life right now…sewing and juice plus. Two things I have been letting fear get the best of me on.
 Sewing: wondering if my stuff is good enough or if I am just wasting valuable time that I could be spending with my husband. Wondering if God has placed it in my life as a way to get out of debt at a faster rate.
Juice Plus+: the fear of someone saying “what now Ashley” not to my surprise that happened right away. The fear of failing, not being successful with the business. But I am so excited about it, so so so very excited. I learned about it through a friend whose baby was saved because of her getting on the whole based nutrition capsule at week 20 in her pregnancy. He had a mass on his lung and wasn’t expected to make it, let alone be so healthy. A nurse friend of her told her some doctors had been recommending Juice Plus+ and that she should try it. She got on it and he came out perfectly healthy. Her story has left the doctors and surgeons all amazed and completely on board with JP+. We had a huge prayer chain for her back in the day and it is awesome to see God answer the prayers! Shortly after his delivery her mom decided to become a wellness consultant to share how it saved her grandson’s life. Annie jumped on board since it was her story and son! J  After she saw many allergy suffering posts, she shared it with me. Ryan and I, if you remember, tried actually juicing raw fruits and vegetables and drinking them…YUCK, I think I liked one combination. He wants so badly for our doctor’s bills to go down and me to feel better on a daily basis. But the time, effort, messiness, cost, etc just did not justify. Juice Plus+ does that exact same with organic vegetables and puts it in a capsule so you don’t taste the grossness of what is really good for you. And it’s a lot cheaper! That is why I am excited I see story after story of how it got rid of allergies, sinuses, asthma, improved energy, healed diseases, amazed doctors with the cancer recovery, and the one I am most excited about is BABIES! Everything I am saying is clinically researched…it improves Fertility and has excellent outcomes with the pregnancy process. I have tons of research on that if you’re interested, and much, much more. There are tons of studies and more coming out on the benefits of JP+. It just made sense to me. I don’t eat my recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables, why don’t bring the gap and feel better! On the business side of it there are no parties or inventory and the list goes on.
I’m really not here to discuss all that, more of my fears and excitement. After prayerfully weighing my fears to the benefits it’s easy to see what I chose. Many people are successful with at home business and that is what I want so badly. I want to be able to work, but from home so I can spend time with my family… when the rest  come along. I want to accomplish more than just teaching day after day. I want to help, make a difference, save a life, and make someone feel better! Needless to say Pampered Chef wasn’t for me. The time and cooking thing was just not my cup of tea. So yes, here I go again, and I am so excited about it! www.asnelljuiceplus.com if you’re interested in reading up on the research. Watch the video, it’s great!
Back to Moses, I am taking the opportunity God has laid in front of me and to the full advantage! I’m praying to gets us out of debt faster and provides the way for me to stay home.
The other lessons I learned this morning:
God doesn’t need much from us to accomplish His plan!
When you don’t see the way out of a problem or situation…Focus on God and trust Him for the way out. That is all He needs to begin His work in you.
We may feel abandoned or isolated because of something we have done. But though we feel afraid and separated, we should not give up. Moses didn’t! He trusted God to deliver him, no matter how dark his past or bleak his future.
God knows the best time to act. When you feel that God has forgotten you in your troubles remember that God has a time schedule that we can’t see!

I am encouraged by this message this morning Ash.So many times in life I feel stuck because I don't know where to begin on things I KNOW God is calling me to but I am reminded that "He doesn't need much" just willing. I know that if anyone can be successful in home based business it is YOU!! I also think that you could make as much money as you want to make with your Onesies for sure. We just gotta get your name out there.
LOVE YOU!!!
