Today I woke up not feeling so well. Not sure if its because I am coming down with a little cold or if its because of my allergies. Which ever it may be I was just feeling like I am missing out. Should I have moved so far away from my family and friends. Am I really where I need to be where I want to be. Do you see the repetitive "I". There is a reason for that. It is not about me. It's about what God wants from me. Anyways I awoke from my nap very upset. And I prayed Lord I just want you to talk to me.
So I looked at my bible and said hmm.. Lets just go ahead and open it. Well I like to just skim through the pages and then just pick a page. This time I closed my eyes and just opened. And to my surprise I read Ezra 3: 1-6. However in my bible the New King James version was a page that talks about Zerubbabel. This is what I read:
"Sometimes God's ownership of a project is only recognized after our best efforts have failed. It is dangerous to think of God as responsible for the insignificant details while we take charge of the larger aspects of a project. Instead it is God who is in control and we only play a part in his overall plan. When God gives us important jobs to do, it isn't because he needs our help. Zerubbabel learned this lesson."
It goes on to talk about Zerubbabel's story. This is what just really made me just start to cry because I know God was totally talking to me:
"We do not know what Zerubbabel did during this time. His discouragement, following those first months of excitement and accomplishment, must have been deep. Those feelings eventually hardened into hopelessness. So God sent the prophets Haggai and Zechariah to be Zerubbabel's encouraging companions. They confronted the people's reluctance and comforted their fears. The work began once again with renewed energy and was completed in four years.
Zerubbabel, like many of us, knew how to start well but found it hard to keep going. His success depended on the quality of encouragement he received. Zerubbabel let discouragement get the better of him. But when he let God take control, the work was finished. God is always in control. We must not let circumstances of lack of encouragement slow us from doing the tasks God has given us."
I can't even begin to tell you how completely humbled I felt. I know what I need to do and not let my discouragement that I have placed upon myself get the better of me. God is in control and I know He will get me through this journey.

So I just got back from taking a little drive. And my heart is just filled with love and appreciation for God and all that he does. He is truly working in my life and I feel so blessed and humbled. He is so amazing, all you have to do is trust him. Once you do this seem to feel so right, things fall into place. Even when your scared it just is so right.... He shows you not to be scared and how much He loves you and how much He protects you day in and day out. No matter what time, no matter what circumstance He is there. Just AMAZING!! I am in complete awe... Thank you God for working in my life! I pray that you work in everyone's heart and that they begin to understand the love you have for them.

I just wanted to share with everyone this absolutely amazing song from one of my favorite artist. Her name is Francesca Battistelli. She totally rocks. Check out her CD called My Paper Heart. I just ordered her CD this week. I can't wait to get it. Its my new theme CD for the year. Such uplifting songs. Here is one of her songs I am loving right now.
Album: My Paper Heart
Artist: Francesca Battistelli
At twenty years of age I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see
‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me
When I was just a girl I thought I had it figured out
My life would turn out right, and I'd make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt
And you’re free to be you
Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek
And it’s easy to believe

I hope everyone is having a fantastic day... And if your not I hope what your about to read will make you smile and feel better.
The local Christian Radio station had this up on their web page. I have read this one time before but this time I printed it out. It is truly amazing.
You may not know me,
but I know everything about you.
I know when you sit down and when you rise up.
I am familiar with all your ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
For you were made in my image.
In me you live and move and have your being.
For you are my offspring.
I knew you even before you were conceived.
I chose you when I planned creation.
You were not a mistake,
for all your days are written in my book.
I determined the exact time of your birth
and where you would live.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
I knit you together in your mother's womb.
And brought you forth on the day you were born.
I have been misrepresented
by those who don't know me.
I am not distant and angry,
but am the complete expression of love.
1 John 4:16
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you.
1 John 3:1
Simply because you are my child
and I am your Father.
1 John 3:1
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.
For I am the perfect father.
Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand.
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope.
Because I love you with an everlasting love.
My thoughts toward you are countless
as the sand on the seashore.
And I rejoice over you with singing.
I will never stop doing good to you.
For you are my treasured possession.
I desire to establish you
with all my heart and all my soul.
And I want to show you great and marvelous things.
If you seek me with all your heart,
you will find me.
Delight in me and I will give you
the desires of your heart.
For it is I who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you
than you could possibly imagine.
For I am your greatest encourager.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
I am also the Father who comforts you
in all your troubles.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
When you are brokenhearted,
I am close to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb,
I have carried you close to my heart.
One day I will wipe away
every tear from your eyes.
And I'll take away all the pain
you have suffered on this earth.
I am your Father, and I love you
even as I love my son, Jesus.
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed.
He is the exact representation of my being.
He came to demonstrate that I am for you,
not against you.
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
His death was the ultimate expression
of my love for you.
1 John 4:10
I gave up everything I loved
that I might gain your love.
If you receive the gift of my son Jesus,
you receive me.
1 John 2:23
And nothing will ever separate you
from my love again.
Come home and I'll throw the biggest party
heaven has ever seen.
I have always been Father,
and will always be Father.
My question is…
Will you be my child?
I am waiting for you.
Love, Your Dad

I woke up freezing today! It is 35 degrees out right now and the wind chill of 25!! WHAT is that about!! This is Florida not Antarctica. Don't get me wrong I love the cold weather but this is even cold for me. My friends would be in shock if they read this.
I have had a busy busy morning. Which had been totally awesome! I overcame a Huge deal today and that just made my day. The Lord is really working in my life and I feel extremely humbled and blessed. Joshua 1:9.
So its about 9 more days til Valentines Day! Whoohoo. What do I get for someone I have been with for about 13years. He's already stuck with me! Lol. I have a couple things in mind but I will have to look and compare prices. Even though I was told NO VALENTINES this year!! I never listen. ha ha.
Its better to give then to receive!
Hope everyone has a sunshined filled day! =)

Well I guess I should first introduce myself.....
My name is Kinipela, well that's technically my Hawaiian Name. =)
I have a husband, who I have been married to for almost 7 years (in October). He was my high school sweetheart, even though he claims I wasn't his. That's what he claims but he knows better. ha ha. Just kidding. We are extremely close and have a really unique relationship. He is my best friend and I am so blessed that I have him in my life. Truly my soul mate.
We have no kids yet, except for our animals. We have 2 dogs. A rottweiler named Molly and a yorkie named Buddy. They are the best! We also have 2 cats. Both are mixes. Kiko is the all white one with his face black and his tail black. And we have Lily she is brownish/grayish cat.
I have been truly blessed with many things. First and foremost to know who God is and to see his work not only within me but within my family and friends. The Lord has blessed me with great friends and with a wonderful family who support me with each step I take. Who wouldn't want that?!
This blog is about my life what I do day in and day out. How I feel, what bothers me, what amuses me, life situations and such. Hope you enjoy! =)
