My heart's desire is for you to know that you are:
I woke up today with a heavy heart. I woke up longing to share with you my heart's desire. To share the whole reason behind this blog, my business, & all the in-between's. You see, it's not about the running, the weight loss, the workouts, the recipes, etc... it's about you & how you see yourself. Do you see yourself worthy or unworthy? God sees you as worthy & my heart's desire is that you will too.
A few years ago I began working with a mentor of mine & through his teachings God really taught me a lot about myself. I always considered myself as "confident" but God revealed something to me during those months. He showed me that if I was as confident as I thought I was then I wouldn't be as prideful either. I grew a lot that summer. My heart was broken & for the first time I really needed God to show me I was worthy. I finally came to terms with the fact that I will never live up to my own expectations if they were to be "perfect"... I worked so hard at being perfect when really all that God wanted was me & my brokenness so I could learn to lean on Him... for everything.
As women we desire to be loved & for someone to really care about us... guess what girlfriends? God truly cares about YOU. It's true... It's not just something you hear on Sunday's but something God did through Jesus Christ that overflows in your soul & then all of sudden you feel the peace he brings to your heart. Redemption is here.
It's true. I promise.
My heart desires to show you how you can find this experience in your own life... to finally find that freedom you are looking for in your life. For you to realize that your imperfections are what make you beautiful. To learn how you can find fulfillment in Him & throw your stress of perfection out the window. Believing in yourself is the first part. You must believe that you can & you're halfway there. I pray that through my posts, trainings, & personal experiences that I remind you just how special you really are & that yes, you my friend, are really worth it. You can be healthy, you can run, you can make a lifestyle change, you can make a difference...... however, you must not forget that making a change doesn't mean it will be perfect but I can promise it will be freeing. Making a lifestyle change is hard, it can be discouraging at times, but don't forget that you are worth the journey. Don't fret about your imperfections but embrace them & know you have a God who loves you with or without them. He made you special just the way you are...
Whatever you are going through today I pray that in some way God used these words to touch your heart & that your heart will move you. Move you in a direction closer to Him.
By ourselves everything seems impossible, but with God, nothing is impossible.
Today's Tip: What is something you have been holding onto for too long? A lie or experience that haunts you daily... Write it on a piece of paper. Shred it into pieces, Throw it away. Press on toward your goals. Trust God's promises. Do it. TODAY.
I believe in you!
