What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but never have?
What stopped you?
What if you discovered that there’s nothing standing in your way but you?
Living a healthy lifestyle (from the inside out) is a combination of understanding & unlearning your current lifestyle and a willingness to learn how to apply new ideas, thought patterns and habits.
Its less about bout getting it right And more about getting it done.
“Our physical bodies may wander. At times our souls may feel orphaned and lost. But deep within, through the layers of external identity, we can burrow down to the deepest part of who we are, the quiet center we know is in there, the grounded place we’ve felt but can’t see. This solid ground, this rock identity, this fixed point by which all other points are measured, this is our spiritual self, our alive-ness in Christ, our true home.” – Simply Tuesday
Why is it that we have such a strong desire to be a part of something or fear being left out that we pine for it even at the risk of neglecting what we already belong to?
It’s typically not the things we feel obligated to but the things that have become so ordinary to us that we stutter to notice the slightest significance within the relationship.
Going after the desires of our hearts and using our abilities often means going in the opposite direction of the crowd.
It sometimes means that there will not be a manual or an example to follow. Because maybe, JUST MAYBE YOU ARE BEING MADE AS THE EXAMPLE THEY’LL FOLLOW!!
You won’t get it right. But you’ll get it done. You’ll get it done by grace. When grace fills you with a creative ability and power that says ‘it fell apart as it came together’.
“Faith isn’t always a leap. Sometimes it’s just one little step after another, with lots of falling down and getting back up in between”- Unknown
CONFIDENCE IN THE DOING
Nothing fosters confidence like making it through something you’d thought you couldn’t. – Carla Birnberg
Through It All – Colton Dixon
There are days I’ve taken more than I can give
And there are choices that I made that I wouldn’t make again
I’ve had my share of laughter of tears and trouble times
This has been the story of my life
i have won and I have lost
i got it right sometimes but I did not
life’s been a journey
ive seen joy I’ve seen regret
oh and You have been my God through all of it
The Lord is my strength and my power; he has become my salvation. This is my God, whom I will praise, the God of my ancestors, whom I will acclaim. (Exodus 15:2 CEB)
