Ready for change? Create daily discipline

FITness isn’t what you do, it’s who you become! It’s not only physical it’s your entire being.

It’s Not “YOU’RE CRAZY/LOST YOUR MIND AND NOW YOU’RE NO FUN TO BE AROUND” rigid living. It’s balance of keepin’ your heart pumpin & your spirit movin’!

It’s establishing daily disciplines.

It’s getting stronger everyday!

It’s allowing God to create a change & urgency deep down inside of you to live up to your greatest potential!

30 Day FOCUS: Travel plans

Wow it’s December and the count down to Christmas has already begun.

 

Man, New Year’s Eve is literally around the corner and I swear it feels like we were just listening to my Pastor’s message on putting God first.

That message has literally directed my every thought, every word, every consideration.

ESPECIALLY in those moments I wanted to pitch a fit and scream I QUIT!

I have continually reminded myself; not monthly, but I’m talking hourly, minute by minute, and at times it felt like every second.

 

FIRST.

Seek Him first, and all these things He’ll add to you.

Discipline. Focus on the FIRST not the things.

But knowing He literally was working on His plan (Jeremiah 29) kept my FOCUS & kept me in the fight.

 

FIRST. I set about making my goals for 2013 and “where I wanted to go/be”; when distractions (like that joy thief called comparison) tried to get the best of me, when I adjusted my focus to be ANCHORED; He still reminded me, FIRST.

OneWord2013_Anchored

 

Every plan. Every purpose. Every promise.

Anchored? FIRST.

Every thought.

Every consideration.

Every appointment.

Every desire.

Every goal.

Every set.

Every rep.

Every meal.

Every measurement.

Every THING. (Matthew 6:25-33 all those things)

  • To get where I wanted to be, I had to first know where I was coming from. I was not focused on it but at least accepted that’s what I was giving Him permission to lead me away from.
  • Know where I was going.
  • Who & what was leading me.
  • What were my motives.
  • What was my ultimate FOCUS.
  • START ASKING THE BIG QUESTIONS AND LISTEN FOR THE ANSWERS.
    • WHY? WHERE? WHO? HOW? WHEN? WHAT?

It all came back to FIRST.

I heard this message from Christine Caine and thought it might bless your day. It’s really on knowing where you’re going and who’s going with you.

See I’ve wanted to take a trip with my girls for a LOOOOONG time. But I think I made the wrong plans because we seem to never get there.

This 30 day FOCUS is helping me to realize something, before we decide it’s time to plan a trip, first we need to make sure we know where we’re going.

 

Where are you going?

Holiday Body: Blessed MisFits

“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought. (Matthew 5:5 MSG)

20131128-103943.jpg

Never underestimate the power of an invitation! If you’re the one being invited, humbly accept and humbly arrive. If you’re the one doing the inviting, open your house, your heart and your love.

I love my family because we are wildly quirky, perhaps strange to the average person, but they are mine! Every inside joke, every random look, every heart felt tear jerker memory…they’re mine and I’m blessed!

I love watching each of my kids find their ‘fit’ in our family and they’re learning each if their individual talents & gifts are needed for a specific purpose to complete our family puzzle.

Growing up with 7 siblings it amazes me that somehow we each played a unique role within our family & the people around us. But even as adults while I can see those roles being redefined; there were times I wondered how or where we ever ‘fit in’.

I sometimes question where I belong, which group I’m a part of and often I’ll watch the people around and try to see if we’d click.

Having a place to belong or connect with isn’t a about finding an identical match or carbon copy, I learned that quickly in my family. We’re all so very different yet collectively we’re one.

Think about keys & locks. They work because one needed to be shaped, refined and even a bit of heat grinding in order for it to work in the specific lock it was designed for.

Every friendship, job, skill I’ve ever had in my life I’ve tried to “fit” and God had truly shown me that as long as I would continue to squeeze or conform I would always be misfit. But if I allow Him to place me where I needed to be, I could be the specific one for that task!

I’m challenging you today to consider where you may have considered yourself or someone else the “misfit”. Ask God to continue to reshape you & put you exactly where you belong.

 

 

Luke 14

He went on to tell a story to the guests around the table. Noticing how each had tried to elbow into the place of honor, he said, “When someone invites you to dinner, don’t take the place of honor. Somebody more important than you might have been invited by the host. Then he’ll come and call out in front of everybody, ‘You’re in the wrong place. The place of honor belongs to this man.’ Red-faced, you’ll have to make your way to the very last table, the only place left. “When you’re invited to dinner, go and sit at the last place. Then when the host comes he may very well say, ‘Friend, come up to the front.’ That will give the dinner guests something to talk about! What I’m saying is, If you walk around with your nose in the air, you’re going to end up flat on your face. But if you’re content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself.” Then he turned to the host. “The next time you put on a dinner, don’t just invite your friends and family and rich neighbors, the kind of people who will return the favor. Invite some people who never get invited out, the misfits from the wrong side of the tracks. You’ll be—and experience—a blessing. They won’t be able to return the favor, but the favor will be returned—oh, how it will be returned!—at the resurrection of God’s people.” (Luke 14:7-14 MSG)

If it means that I’ll have an entire workout wardrobe reminding me of who I am, so be it! Maybe someone coming toward me will be moved toward greatness!

What does greatness look like to you? I started doing some self care studying and almost automatically God began putting things in front of me to show me how “great” my life was. So I stayed there, with that “theme”. I prayed for my eyes to be opened to see the awesome I already had. And again “greatness” started happening, some was simply uncovered, some untapped and a little more given.

Here’s your challenge this week, commit yourself to a specific “theme”. Everyday do 1 thing that moves you toward defining that theme.

Post a quote, scripture, picture of yourself expressing your theme!

Maybe greatness is a skill, an attitude or an activity.

To me; Greatness is a mindset. It’s the value you place on what matters to you most.

What’s your theme?

“Confidence is contagious. So is the lack of confidence.”
