How did Monday get here? Β 


God guides my life but not just my faith. He guides me in all areas of my life and gets me through struggles of life, health, mind, body and soul. If I remind myself to give this all to Him I can conquer any day! 
I believe in taking care of the mind body and soul I struggle something fierce with the working out part. I push I motivate myself and sometimes just feel down right unmotivated. Today was one of those days. 

One of these reasons is when I was 19 I was diagnosed with a low functioning thyroid also known as Hypothyroid. This means my metabolism is so slow! Now at 19 I didn’t let that stop me. I pushed and worked out like a boss and just ate in moderation. I still could enjoy yummy stuff. 

As I get older and having a child ( a handsome 11yr old son πŸ˜€) the struggle is so real. I find that now I look to motivating scripture. I look to others who are the same as me. Real people. Real problems. Real struggles I’m never going to be perfect nor would I even think I would be. I just want to be healthy and find natural ways to improve my energy. 

Today I was not feeling it.   

So I turned to my bible. πŸ™
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 

But he said to me, β€œMy grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Wow!  You see, even when I feel weak God will give me the strength. Even if I have aches and pains God will use that to bring glory to His Name and teach me something, to push me to grow. I can never give up because is by my side. He has got me! I’m not gonna let my Heavenly Father down! I’m going to push through that tiredness, that pain and be the best me I can be.  

Mind, body and soul! 

So yeah I got my workout on. I handled it like a boss. Lol. 
Here are my workouts today. Just in case you wanted to know.  



I just love quick workouts. I never get bored. And I did some hula hooping! So fun!  

We cannot stop


I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 16:33 

Did you ever just feel like the world is against you? Nothing seems to be going your way. You keep trying figure it out but nothing happens. I’m here to tell you don’t give up. Ever! You are not alone and you do not have to figure this out alone. 

First of all the world can seem against you because we are not of this world. We belong to God. Until we surrender to His Will we can find ourselves in constant struggle against it. The more you are for what happens in this world the more troubles you will have. That is not to say that devoting your life to God will bring any less trouble if fact you could even have more trouble. The big difference is now you have God by your side. Fighting your battles. He will get you through the storm but He can also use that storm to shine Light on His glory and grace He has given us

Without God we can feel utterly alone because deep down we feel that separation from God. A separation we have chosen ourselves because God is always s waiting on  us. We have to only reach out to Him. He will never force us to come to Him. We get to choose this freely Why you ask yourself would you choose to go this alone?  

God’s Will and Plan may seem to take forever! Rest assured though!  He has it all figured out in His timing. He knows the bigger picture we cannot see. 

If you are a parent you may understand this because when your children are young they don’t always understand your rules and your ways but when they grow up and become parents they begin to see and appreciate what kind of foundation you laid for them in their lives

Our Heavenly Father does the same. When we are separated or young in our faith we don’t understand what God is  doing. We can even find ourselves getting angry at God and questioning everything but as in our walk we grow closer to Him and mature in our faith we start to understand what He is doing. Maybe not completely but we learn to have faith and trust in Him

So don’t give up. God loves you and while you may not understand, walk closer to Him and feel safe in His Love. He will never give up on you if you choose Him. He will never abandon you.   He is waiting for you right now!

God sent His only Son to teach us of His Love and to die for our sins. Jesus who was without sin took upon all of our sins and died and conquered death so we may live in eternity with our Heavenly Father. How amazing is that? That truly has touched my heart and fills me so completely knowing God love me and loves you that much! 

You are never alone. Reach out to God. He will guide your path!  
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say β€œNo” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.

Titus 2:11-12 
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

1 John 3:1 

Big decisions

Today is the day! The decision will be made. Who will be our next President? 

Will fellow Christians finally stand together and pray for this country? Will we rise up together and fight for our religious freedom. Stand up for the rights of the unborn child. 
(Did you know that when Mary was pregnant with Jesus they never referred to Him as a fetus but that she was with child. 

Luke 2:5

5 He went to be registered with Mary, who was promised in marriage to him, and who was expecting a child.”)
No matter the outcome of this election I have no fear because God is the ruler of all and has given Jesus authority over Heaven AND Earth
Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and said to them, β€œAll authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Our God is bigger than any of these political problems we face. At the end of the day you must ask yourself, when you voted, did you stand up for your faith? Then ask yourself how your relationship with God is? Ultimately that us what this all means. Will this bring us together as Christians? Will we continue to seek God. Share the gospel and love and help others?  
This is not the biggest decision of your life. It’s important who you vote for but not the most important. The biggest decision is do you stand with God or this world?
Let’s join together and pray that no matter what the outcome God will be the ruler of our lives no matter what!
God bless 

About

My eyes don’t see very well but I have realized that this is a gift because it has allowed me to view the world differently. I am a Christian. I am a mother to a wonderful 10 year old boy. I am a massage therapist that just wants people to feel well so instead of focusing on their aches and pains they can focus in what is important. Their faith, their family their passions.

The First Step


I sit and pray and I ask God what do you need me to do next? What is the next step you want me to take? Then that phrase ‘next step’ repeats in my mind and I think of the story in Joshua When they were going to cross the Jordan River and they had to trust and obey God knowing there would be a way across. 

Joshua 3:13

13 ” When the priests who carry the Covenant Box of the Lord of all the earth put their feet in the water, the Jordan will stop flowing, and the water coming downstream will pile up in one place.”

See, God gave Joshua the instructions to cross the river. To take the first step to see what would happen. To see how God would get them across. Trusting and obeying but they had to take that first step to see. When they did the water did stop flowing and they were able to walk across!
I sit and think that I have such an ease in expressing myself in writing and if I’m in the company of close friends or a small group I have no problem using my voice but when I feel unsure or unsafe of those around me fear takes over. I don’t want that fear to consume me. I have to remember that I need to speak to first word and God will carry me through. I need to take the first step towards the direction God wants me to go and He will guide the way.

 I can no longer sit back and wait.

 I can no longer sit in silence. 

I must take action

I must use my voice

I must share my faith without fear or uncertainty

But I must speak the first word

I must take the first step.  

Love Anyway



“I’m going to love you anyway”
Sometimes I don’t feel your love back

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel you don’t even think about me 

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel like you have walked away never to return

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I think you make other things or people more important than me

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel hurt by your actions

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometime I feel you don’t even deserve my love 

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes You aren’t going to agree with me

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you mess up 

I’m going to love you anyway

I’m not always going to agree with you

I’m going to love you anyway 

Sometimes you don’t feel your best

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you are going to be so sad and down and feel alone

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you are going to give up

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you may forget me 

I’m going to love you anyway
-No matter what, love is more than just your feelings

It’s an action word that you choose everyday

No matter what

I’m going to love you anyway

Whether you deserve it or I deserve it God loves us anyway

When we turn from Him he awaits patiently with Love for our return

When we make other things more important than Him like money, sex, people, job etc 

He loves us anyway

We don’t even deserve His Love for how much we mess up daily but He loves us anyway

So why is it so hard to love our neighbors anyway whether they seemingly deserve it or not. Do you think you are always deserving of Love?

What a blessing for those that do love you anyway
“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

John 13:34-35
