Back to Basics: Weigh less

Because there are far too many of us just getting by, living by comparison or hustling to prove our worth…

Weigh Less To Feed More is better than anything I’ve ever seen in the “weight loss & nutrition” industry because it gets to the true root & reason why we’re all hungry and starving; yet full but never satisfied.

It’s more than calories and carbs, it’s beyond eating better on budgets and it’s far more than anything we could ever calculate in an app that’s designed to tell you when, where, why and how based on your lifestyle.
Who better to help us understand what we need in order to thrive than the One who created us… (Psalm 139) So if you’re ready to get honest, get whole & get free; click the link the link and get your spot reserved (sign up), I have 2 spots left and … we begin August 18th!
get honest

“But, except for these special cases, I’m not going to walk around on eggshells worrying about what small-minded people might say; I’m going to stride free and easy, knowing what our large-minded Master has already said. If I eat what is served to me, grateful to God for what is on the table, how can I worry about what someone will say? I thanked God for it and he blessed it!

So eat your meals heartily, not worrying about what others say about you—you’re eating to God’s glory, after all, not to please them. As a matter of fact, do everything that way, heartily and freely to God’s glory. At the same time, don’t be callous in your exercise of freedom, thoughtlessly stepping on the toes of those who aren’t as free as you are. I try my best to be considerate of everyone’s feelings in all these matters; I hope you will be, too.”
1 Corinthians 10:29-33 MSG

Yesterday a friend shared a t-shirt she found that read “SURVIVING MOTHERHOOD ON COFFEE & GRACE” of course immediately I asked where to get it, because seriously that’s my anthem and if I can have a tshirt to declare it; then it’s official!!! #thenewtattoo Last night I asked my husband to pray for me because the past few nights I haven’t really slept and I woke up this morning wondering if the prayer worked. Puffy eyes, stiff necked and groggy I’m tempted to say no {not yet}. Then the Holy Spirit immediately taps my shoulder and says “remember the whole coffee and grace thing, well one of those is overriding the other”… Y’all if I can just be honest for a second… I love coffee. But grace, I desperately need it; like being dehydrated, starving and horribly broken and it’s the only thing that will keep me alive!
Life is scary; people get rude; our kids grow up right in front of us and we blink and the wonder years are gone; death happens and grieving feels like it’s on a schedule of to-dos; competition & perfection rises up at the most inconvenient times; hustle becomes the buzz word of the decade and if you’re not on that train you’re the odd man out; friendships get thick & thorny and your purpose feels thin & flaky; authenticity becomes diluted to a hashtag and then like a flood God starts reminding you that where He has you RIGHT NOW is intentional.
When my hands are ready to go up and the towel is ready to be thrown in; He sends His Holy Spirit to remind you of the redemption, freedom & identity you have in Christ.
He comes like a gardener to uproot weeds that have been choking the life out of the fruit that’s been bitter, to tend to the growth of the sweet, fragrant and life-giving fruit. He comes like a healing balm to the mend brokenness that festers and invades our hearts, homes and happiness and He restores us back to His original design. This summer I set my heart & my mind on being intentionally available to my family & purpose – without missing a beat He consistently shines His light on the darkness and illuminates the joy. We get worn out when we’ve blocked/locked Him out. #relax #getinneractive #Matthew11
break free from food

Where are you on your eating habits? Where are you spiritually? Are you feeding doubts, emotions, fears, faith, comparison, hope, purpose? Have you considered the “process” or “philosophy” you live by and realized that this can’t keep you going for much longer because certainly there’s more to life than measurements, calories, checklists and meal plans? OR maybe you’re on the other side and decided that if you DON’T do that, then life as you know it would fall apart •••Listen, friend; I’m not here to tell you how to live, love or laugh but I am here to tell you that if we aren’t letting God regulate our decisions in how we take care of our daily lives, it’s REALLY EASY to become controlled BY our lives. Freedom – TRUE FREEDOM – in your own skin; doesn’t come attached to a checklist of anything that feels like captivity, like if you don’t do it right then you have to quit and chalk it up as a failed effort. By the way, if you fail that means you at least tried! AMEN?!?! So, listen This is your do over and this time you’ll do it differently because Grace is our anchor! • • •

Weigh Less (no longer weighed down) to Feed More (more availability to the people & purposes that matter) begins August 18!

wEIGH LESS TO FEED MORE INVITE

 

Declarations of freedom

This month the focus is on learning how to #reDEFINE who you are from the inside out. To drop the labels, drop the self-proclaimed ‘personality traits’, to lose the pride that has become a heavy burden to carry, to get rid of the unnecessary weights of guilt and shame and walk so free that it becomes a contagious epidemic that others can’t avoid wanting some of!

Today, in honor of the independence day celebration, we move in freedom making our declarations known both to ourselves and those around us. Not for the sake of them, but I mean if they’re gonna be watching you anyway, why not take that opportunity to point them to the one who set you free!

Here’s your motivation for our #celebratefreedom workout/movement/cleaning the house or whatever you decide to do that needs some encouragement to get you going! There’s music, scripture and motivation tied into this one tiny message! You spirit, soul and body will thank you! #MOVE #getinneractive

Weigh Less Feed More LOVE

Are we feeding faith or fear: Overcoming Anxiety 

  

Have you ever dealt with anxiety? 

I have. FOR YEARS!!! And here’s where I found the solution! 

And I continue to use it whenever new issues, people, things, and problems try to overwhelm me! 

And yes, you’ll need to continue to ‘work it out’ on a regular basis just like one visit to the gym won’t make you fit, one prayer won’t keep you well! 

  

Surrender 

I started this devotional on the bible app and asked God to help me remove anything that’s a distraction from allowing Him access to my heart, (Psalm 139:23) my life and my mind. I’d love for you to join me. 

The 21 Day Plan – We start TODAY! 

I’m reading the @YouVersion plan ‘Living the Surrendered Life’. Check it out here:

http://bible.com/r/51

No spirit of fear

Friends, Grace covers us and removes every fear, every anxious thought, every regret, every what if, every thought that tries to hold itself higher than the name of Christ, every doubt that says we can’t because we think we are either not enough or too much, every deception & lie that disguises itself as truth and tries to convince us that it’s too late or too soon. Grace is the qualifier. Grace IS the reflection of the cross & the Cross was enough! 

For you, me & her and all the rest of them! 

 
I’ve seen many searching for answers far & wide and I know we’re all searching for answers only you provide and you know just what we need before we say a word. 

➕ And you call me deeper still… (Good Good Father Chris Tomlin) 

““It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭65:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Taste & See: Change the ‘why’ in your goals

  
Have you ever noticed you simply cannot stop a woman changed by the love of Jesus?
Run into her and she spills outblessing. Offend her and she proclaims peace. Try to silence her and she will sing a new song to her King. Cut her and she bleeds grace. In Christ, she is contagious, she is bold, she is gracious, she is loving. She is an unstoppable gospel force. She’s the light of the world, for freedom set free.
In Christ, we are told this is who we are, yet if we are honest, it’s hard to be. To be transformed by love is why we train! We train our hearts, minds, souls and bodies by God’s word. Day by day the Holy Spirit changes us more into the likeness of real love; a love that does not run when face to face with fear, nor will it faint in the sun-scorched lands. 
God’s word longs to invade our everything. Will we give Him permission is the question. 
We are people on mission to provide a way for everyone who moves their feet to run headfirst into the love of God. 
If you have yet to try this kind of training, don’t wait one more day. 

Let me introduce you to RevWell TV – an army of worshippers who are standing at your front door, knocking, hoping you will let us in. 

Let us into your home, your office or wherever you find yourself in need of something greater.

Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—

how good God is.

Blessed are you who run to him.

(Psalm 34:8 The Message)

Emancipation proclamation

  
REDEMPTION! He is our redeemer!!! 
When you’ve heard a song that’s become sort of a rights of passage anthem and then you find the biblical reference, it makes the lyrics so much more profound. 
➕ “let Your eyes be open and Your ears be attentive to hear Your servant’s prayer that I now pray to You day and night for Your servants, the Israelites. I confess the sins we have committed against You. Both I and my father’s house have sinned.
Please, Lord, let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and to that of Your servants who delight to revere Your name. Give Your servant success today, and have compassion on him in the presence of this man. At the time, I was the king’s cupbearer.”

Nehemiah 1:6, 11 HCSB
