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…

Ephesians 5 Man

IMG_3790From the time we were little girls, most of us have dreamt of our wedding day. It all starts when we play with our Barbie and Ken dolls and continues on when we have our first crush. In a world where romance and weddings are amplified by Pinterest dream wedding boards and fairytale romance shows like The Bachelorette where men fight for a woman’s heart and woo her with extravagant vacations, gifts, and in the end a huge engagement ring. {Provided for free by a jeweler in exchange for some national advertising,} We girls sort of have a ‘fill-in-the-groom’ mentality of our wedding day. We think about how we will do our hair and what type of dress we will wear, we wonder what colors will be the ‘wedding colors’ and almost every detail in between. Ask most girls what they want in a husband and they will say “Tall, dark and handsome” or maybe “Blonde hair, blue eyes and washboard abs.” My question to you is how often when you ask a woman what she wants in a man does she start with aspects that are not purely physical?

Striving To Be The Real Deal

Christian: a person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings.

I look all around me and know many people who are Christian. For a long time I was what you could call a ‘cookie cutter’ Christian. I believed in God and had my salvation, every night I would lay in bed and said my prayers. When things got rough I prayed for God to help me. I said all the right things about God and my belief in Him but I didn’t practice what I preached. I lived my life feeling never good enough for God, like I was disappointing Him with many of the things that I did. This caused me to always keep God at an arm’s length, I didn’t want to get to close to Him, because in my mind God would be even more disappointed in me the closer I got. When I prayed at night, I didn’t ask God what He wanted for me in my life, I would give God my list of requests and pray, plead for Him to just make my wishes and hopes to come true. Now, a lot of times I thank God for those unanswered prayers. I have the definition of Christian written above this, but to me being a Christian is much more than that definition. Being a Christian is not religion but relationship. Above all, being a Christian is striving to be Christ-like

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
