Holiday Body Commitment: 12 Days of Christmas – Day 8 Connecting to Your Purpose

8th-day

On the 8th day of Christmas my trainer gave to me an opportunity to unlock the desires of my heart, get unstuck and set some goals in spite of the fear that tries to declare my identity.

Let’s finish this year with a clear focus on the things that our heart truly cries out for. In this reflective message from our Weigh Less to Feed More class, we get a better understanding of the words of the promise in Psalm 73:26.  “My heart and my flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

“We fear that we will fail ourselves once again, and with failure comes feelings of negative self worth. The other side of the coin is that we fear success. Fearing success happens when we are afraid of what it might cost us or of the expectations that we might place upon ourselves when we receive the desires of our hearts. There is fear of not getting what we want and fear of getting what we want. Now what?” – Alisa Keeton Weigh Less to Feed More

If we take a moment to recognize how far we’ve come and see that it’s because of His amazing grace (not our ability) that we can take a breath today; we wouldn’t be so quick to accept the invitation to dwell on what we don’t have.

Our scripture focus for week 4 of Weigh Less to Feed More is “My heart and my flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26

Here is your 12 Days of Christmas “gift” for TODAY:

Using this quote from WL2FM, this scripture and the lyrics to the song Broken Vessels, take a moment to reflect, journal, or share in the comments: what are 5 Heart Desires that fear of failure and/or success have misdirected you toward being stuck.

Holiday Body Commitment: 12 Days of Fitness gifts for every need

12-days-promo

If you’re just joining us, we’ve been on our journey to the manger  spending some intentional time moving our bodies and setting our focus on the Lord both in scripture and in honoring him with our WHY. In the spirit of the season and visiting the manger, we recognize that there were gifts brought to the king so we decided to bring you some gifts as you honor the King. We want to pause for a moment and make note of this y’all; we journey toward the manger but let’s not forget that the manger didn’t save us. The manager was the birthplace of the promise, the recognition that God’s word is true and that He will chose the most unlikely person, place and thing to bring forth His plans. Friends, we might just be the unlikely suspect of the fulfillment of His promise. We might just in the right place at the right time when we see His glory fall. We might just have the very thing in our possession that God needs to work a miracle. Don’t ever disregard what you have to offer the King. Today, let’s be intentional about what we present to the Lord.

We’ve put together a week’s worth of ‘fitness gifts’ to help you in your ‘giving’. Don’t forget to register for our GIVEAWAY which will be randomly drawn on December 24th!

Which Name of Jesus do you need in the circumstance you face today? Will you call on Him, trusting that He will supply your every need?

Father God, I thank You that Your Truth and Your power are greater than my difficulties, struggles, and tribulations. I thank You for sending Your Son for counseling, comfort, compassion, and love. I thank You that I can call on the Name of Jesus and He will respond. Lord, make my first response be the desire to call upon Your Name, no matter what I face. In Jesus’ name. Amen //Names Of God study #wonderfulcounselor #princeofpeace #GodWithUs

Holiday Body Commitment: 12 Days of Fitness Day 4

“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.”
‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬
