I’m at ease when i find myself struggling in the daily. I am working endlessly on enhancing my Medical Billing knowledge and it has required me to constantly step out my comfort zone. In order for me to be the best, i need to KNOW the competition. I need to know how they’re excelling, where do they slack, their office cycle, the chain of command, what makes the staff happy, what makes them upset etc. I do endless research on figuring out how to get the most money when coding procedures because it’s not just about coding the right way. It’s also knowing the many insurance guidelines to get the most income. There are deadlines to comply to, appeals to write, insurance companies to fight with… its a lot. My goal is to be the BEST AT IT and once i notice I’m comfortable, i know something is wrong. The medical billing field is fierce but every billing company i stepped foot into were very mechanical. Not one had an open mind to figure out ways to be proactive. I plan to be a pioneer in this field and i can’t for not one minute….rest.
What are your goals? Who do you want to be. What do you want to do? Find what that is and go full force. In this world you have to go all or nothing! Once you are comfortable, you’re in danger! There is no growth there.
This is episode 3 of The Bus Chronicles. Enjoy your day!

Before my eyes, I didn’t have to look far. I didn’t have to search vigorously, or even willingly. I simply touched the border of Jesus’ garment and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
“KG, let’s start a daily devotional. Even if you have to start at Genesis. You know you’d find something new.”
I went for it. Genesis 1:1 God created the heavens and the earth…
Wow God, I see what people mean when they say You make something out of nothing. The Earth had no form, darkness everywhere. And You? So sovereign and so in control, spoke light and it became. But here I am stressing about my finances as Christmas approaches not realizing that with just one word, You can make a miracle.
That was just the beginning. I continued to read and I bumped into this gem.
Gen 1:26 Then God said, “Now let’s make humans who will be like us.
It’s clear as day! Jesus and the Holy Spirit were present during the creation of the earth.
Living in a society that tries to offer hope from someone or something other than Jesus brings uncertainty but reading this gives me confidence to stand for what is true.
Jesus is true. The comfort of the Holy Spirit is tangible and proven. God’s powerful essence, unquestionable.
To even think that the stars in the sky, the moon, the sun just simply appeared by accident requires more faith than to believe a powerful, almighty being Who created it all.
Am I that human? Am I like You? Let that be my desire every single day.
So many uncertainties and frequent human inconsistencies leave so much room for fear. Fear that perhaps our comfort gets torn out from under our feet. That in an instant, our lives go from a constant, subtle wave to a thunderous storm tossing us left and right resulting in our destruction.
Have no fear, The Lord says that He is our stronghold. That throughout the storm, He is the lighthouse in the middle of the ocean that never moves; a strong tower that remains sustained. We run to It and are saved.
I can’t deny being provoked by the storm to make drastic decisions coming from fear. What I can say is, moving according to fear leads to more uncertainty.
Let’s put our emotions aside a move towards what scripture directs us to do. God is always right. We, on the other hand, are most likely wrong.
I see it way too often.
A so called gospel that produces fear rather than hope.
Words that causes one stomach to churn vigorously resulting in the rejection of the true gospel.
“Can’t give the gospel another chance, it put me in a bad place the last time I heard it.”
Is it true love if it’s produced out of fear?
Why wouldn’t you lie to your mother?
Because you respect her, you don’t want to hurt her.
Why do you obey your father?
Because you understand that he knows best.
A word with many definitions.
A word resulting in many different emotions.
A word that is used to abuse those who genuinely seek the Lord in times of trouble.
God is Love. If your fear does not confirm this truth, then you are what is called “afraid”.
What Jesus tells us not to be.
Joh 14:27 “I leave you peace. It is my own peace I give you. I give you peace in a different way than the world does. So don’t be troubled. Don’t be afraid.

When Grace is in your heart, your role is to release others from fear, not create it.
-Grace Awakening by Charles Swindoll
What a book!
Teaching the full spectrum of grace is risky. It almost seems like it’s potential can give one the idea that Grace is the license to sin.
It’s not. We water down its potency believing it to be that way.
Yes, Grace is undeserved and not earned and that’s what makes it scandalous I know.
But living in such a way thinking it would shower over us based on our behavior is even more outrageous.
Have you ever sat down and meditated on just that?
We sometimes believe that the enemy is trying to put things in our minds when in reality, he’s keeping things out.
How many times have we fallen into a trap because we didn’t KNOW a way to avoid it?
We condemn ourselves NOT knowing that there is no condemnation for those of us who are in Christ Jesus. Rom 8:1
We fall into temptation NOT knowing that God always provides us a way out. 1 Corinth 10:13
We are anxious NOT knowing that we can cast our cares onto the Lord and that He will sustain us. Psalms 55:22
In every struggle, I find myself unsteady because I have simply forgotten what the Lord said to relieve me from my pain.
The bible says that the word of the Lord is sharper than a double-edged sword. Without the word, we have no weapon. Without a weapon, the enemy has full access to destroy us. Heb 4:12
So what is your weapon of choice? A toothpick or a SWORD.
Pro 27:7 When you are full, you will not even eat honey. When you are hungry, even something bitter tastes sweet
Every time I go to Chili’s, I order a large entrée and the Molten Chocolate Cake for dessert. After my huge meal, even chocolate chip cookies look disgusting to me. Chocolate chip cookies are my weakness. I love love love chocolate chip cookies.
If my husband and I have plans to eat at IHOP for lunch, we skip breakfast. I get so hungry that dry saltine crackers look delicious.
When I read Proberbs 27:7 I was like duhhhh. “What wisdom do you have oh King Solomon.” But I knew God had purpose with this verse.
I was once blessed to be able to listen to podcasts at work. One day, I went through 6 hours of sermons that I felt like a cup overflowing with water. I felt so spiritually full that if someone tried to serve me a spoonful of sugar coated scripture, I’d reject it. I didn’t need it. I didn’t want it. I was so full that even the sweetest most useful words that def could have justified my misdeeds, sins and bad ideas couldn’t alter what God was trying to change in my life.
I too have experienced spiritual starvation when the dumbest Instagram quote spoke to my ego and I mistook it for a “message from God”. Or taking advice from a friend who is spiteful and bitter the majority of their life.
Like the scripture says, “even something bitter tastes sweet”.
There is more to what meets the eye in this verse. It teaches me that a life without prayer and scripture can often lead you down the wrong paths in life.
I’d rather pray about my next productive step than to have to pray myself out of the wrong path.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Father who is full of mercy, the God of all comfort. 4 He comforts us every time we have trouble so that when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us.
This week I have been receiving the same message over and over again. “Help people who are suffering the same thing you’ve suffered and comfort them the way I have comforted you.”
I have suffered through a few things but the biggest one was the sin of adultery and admitting to my husband that I was unfaithful to him. I went through every consequence that follows this type of sin. We separated, I lost my apartment, I went through the whole court process in regards to child support, I received divorce papers, people gossiped, people enjoyed my pain, I was abandoned by my friends and betrayed by a fellow female church member who used that opportunity to get closer to my husband and slightly succeeded.
Internally, I suffered the guilt and shame standing in front of God before I knew I didn’t have to feel that way. I had to take responsibility for my actions and I stood before the leaders of the church. They accused me, pointed their fingers, and called me a liar. Worse, they didn’t help me at all. Instead they pushed me to the side unless it was convenient for them to defend me.
My list continues but what matters the most is that I came out of that situation like Gold!! Not only do I have my husband back, our family continues to grow and prosper spiritually. I am free to talk about my past sins with him and he encourages me every time I hit a tough spot that I haven’t gotten over. My husband also agrees to come together and help those who are suffering through the same thing we have suffered. I am more than happy to say that our relationship is beyond what I expected. We have been through the toughest, darkest valleys and we made it out stronger than ever for the GLORY OF GOD!
It was my molding process. My storm molded me into the woman of God I am today. There is no doubt in my mind about my spiritual life, my family and our ministry. I tell you, repenting takes you a LONG way. Being honest does wonders to your life. Taking responsibilities for your sins brings you to a place that you’ve never imagined. Trusting in God has benefits that words cannot describe.
Why would I keep my beautiful testimony to myself? Why would I waste all the suffering I went through to keep it hidden in a place called shame? Sorry, that’s not who I am. I am bold and I am confident in the things that God has allowed me to go through.
Why now? Healing takes time and although I felt I was healed long ago, I wasn’t strong enough to be extra open about it on my blog as I am today. What sparked it? Well, apparently, people still find my storm amusing enough to attempt to gossip about it with one of my closest friends. People have no idea what I’m doing and no one will never catch a clue by focusing on my social media. I’m smart enough to show only what needs to be seen.
To my faithful haters: I AM NOT ASHAMED! The more you speak of me, the more you glorify the God who has delivered me from my sin. Take a hint. I disarmed you by telling people myself what I have done. I preach about it. I personally tell people about it. The only harm you are causing is the harm you’re inflicting on yourself and on your soul. My ONE sin may have been and outward, unclean thing I’ve done to myself but at least I’m aware of it and at least it doesn’t amount to the 50 you keep hidden.
Currently, I am attempting to encourage 2 people in their storm. I won’t disclose their stories yet but it has everything to do with adultery and the suffering behind it. They give my personal suffering purpose and amplifies the truth behind 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.
After today, I’m hoping to slowly reveal some specific stories from my storm so stay tuned. Im here to help so send me an Email if you need encouragement. AuthKG@yahoo.com Instagram. Twitter. Snapchat— @AuthKG
Where am I?
Who am I?
Where have I been?
I swear, this summer has been so eventful (good and bad) that I haven’t been in touch with myself for a while. I tell you, people think that the weapon of temptation is the best way to draw you further from God but man, the weapon of distraction has to be right along the top of that list if I must say.
No I’m not going to give everyone a thrill of my miserable moments LOL! I don’t want to feed my haters with the illusion that my “bad events” labeled me as a failure. Nah ah! You should know me by now. I can find glory from a bucket full of manure. I’m God-wired, that’s how He got me.
I have to admit that I’m so distracted that I can’t even listen to my inner thoughts. I can’t dig deep enough for something…good (can’t find a better word).
Just because I’m distracted, doesn’t mean I can’t find inspiration elsewhere or in another way. We have to learn how to adjust our minds to our environment. We have to learn to mold ourselves to the inevitable. I have a lot going on and I can’t lose myself because of it. No way. Yes I may have lost that alone time to meditate and look within myself for things I can fix or adjust. No I’m not as inspired or as open as I was in May, but I am aware of this new phase in my life. I’m aware, I’ve adjusted and I have survived CHANGE in my life that could have destroyed me.
There could have been mental destruction. There is still a chance that I may go cray and start flipping tables but I’ve made it too far. I am experienced in a whole lot of different nonsense-es (plural) that I can easily adjust to another nonsense that may come in the future. (Please Lord, don’t challenge that)
Again, my inspiration and ability to write and be all deep has nothing to do with my current abilities or circumstances. (Currently reminded myself of that and writing as I go) I could have made a blog entry many times, I just underestimated myself based on what I SHOULD be feeling from what I was going through.
“I got into a car accident with my son and totaled my car, oh KG, you can’t blog today, you have too much on your mind to blog.”
I was dumb. I could have used that as ammunition to get a good blog going. (We’re all fine BTW.)
Simple: I underestimated myself!
God has always told me how my talents are not provoked by my own works. It is He who has given me the talent ALREADY! Everyday my ability is there. Everyday the inspiration is present. Oh but the enemy is clever. He knows how to stop us from doing what we are already blessed to do. If we fail to do something that God has given us the desire to accomplish, it is because of our lack of faith within ourselves.
That has been my struggle; placing an excuse over something that has full potential to move mountains by simply having faith.
I wasn’t aware of it BEFORE but Praise God for the Holy Spirit who continuously convicts us to become awesome, nonstop Christians >>unstoppable and fully capable to accomplish our dreams, excel in our ministry and become more dedicated to our families.
Que El Señor te bendiga.
