Consistently Enough

Rev 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Just like the seasons, things in my life seem to come on strong and leave in the blink of an eye. The latest fitness craze is usually the ‘season’ that I am in. The last three years I have been ALL-IN on the following things: CrossFit, Olympic lifting, running, Pilates, yoga, Cross Training, strictly cardio, only eating organically and taking 20+/- vitamins a day,  literally doing nothing fitness or nutrition wise, realizing I need to start again. Then repeat. Then repeat again. I feel like my life, in almost all areas, has been characterized by cycles such as this. I am all-in and one day, just as quickly as it started, I am all out. Hot then cold. Not purposely do I do this, it just kind of happens. When someone asks me about a hobby of mine, up until about a week ago I would say “Yes I really like ‘such-and-such’ but you know me, I am such an all or none person!” and I meant it. I know our words have power but this was one of those things that I didn’t even realize I said… much less that I said it a lot. So, my life followed my words and for months I was all-in with God and then like the flip of a light switch, I stopped. For no reason, just stopped. Read more…

The Drive of Life

“Nobody drives you anywhere if you don’t let them take the wheel.”

(Statement made earlier today by the CEO of the company I work for.)

This statement couldn’t be truer. The only way that the actions or words of anyone else can have an effect on us is if we allow them to. However, this goes two ways.

We hear (and say) it a lot. “Such-and-such put me in a bad mood, because……”. “Ugh, I cannot believe what such-and-such did, now I am aggravated”. “Such-and-such drove me to this”. “This happened and now I am in a bad mood”; etc., etc., etc….. You get the picture…..

The things that happen, what other people do or say affects us when we let it affect us. If we just made the decision to not allow those things to have a negative effect on us then they wouldn’t. It is, indeed a choice.

Oppression of Faith

I have come to realize that at times and during certain situations I have had a habit of oppressing my faith. It is easy to speak of and get excited about my walk with the Lord with those who I know have beliefs similar to my own, (which is great because we encourage and motivate one another’s faith [Romans 1:12]). But very seldom would I breach my ‘comfort zone’ and reach out toward others around me. I wouldn’t change my personality; I would still try to be the best person I could be and the type of person who I know God would be mostly pleased with. Nor did I make any type of attempt to hide my beliefs (in the event that faith was brought up) but I would rarely actually bring faith and beliefs up myself. Well, I am not (and should not be) satisfied with God being mostly pleased with me! I want to please Him entirely, I want to be God’s Girl!
