So it is Thursday, and I started this post on Monday as a recap of my weekend but hopefully you don’t mind it’s a little late. Also, this is my first time doing a post from my cell phone so hopefully it works!!😆
I know I post our family devotional a lot but it somehow always fits with what God is showing and teaching me! When I trust God with my life He is guiding me into who He created me to be! Not who I WANTED to be, but BETTER then I could have ever imagined for myself.
This weekend was busy! Friday morning Becca and I had a photo session with the amazing Stacy Salvatori for our little blog (that has some big things coming). Friday night I worked at my smoothie shop so one of my girls that works for me could go to a concert. My husband was working at our house so I took 4 kids to work…good times!!
Saturday morning we (a group of girls Becca and I know workout with) ran in a fun little 5k as fast as we could and went out to breakfast after (Sooo good…Egg white veggie omelet and pumpkin pancakes with walnut syrup…its all about balance)! After breakfast a friend that stayed at the race let me know I got second place, CRAZY!! (Becca would have been right beside me but she was enjoying some much needed family time!)
Sunday I got to do something completely outside my comfort zone (that seems to be the theme of my life lately) I had a cooking class! Me, little old me had a group of women to my kitchen and shared all my meal prep tricks with them!
It was so much fun and from the feedback I actually gave them great new tools to help them eat healthy!!
I can’t wait to do this again!!
I want everyone to know a few things about me
#1 I’m not confident- before everyone came over for the cooking class my mind flooded with self doubt, fear and pure insecurity! I prayed “Lord, I am nothing, I have nothing, and all I have is what you have given me….fill me, use me, and help me to get out of your way!!” He did, and it was amazing!!
#2 Before I ran the race I prayed “Lord, I have nothing, I am nothing, and everything I can do is only because of you.” During the race I wanted to stop in my own strength (it was really hilly and I was running fast) but I just pressed into God and He carried me!
#3 I CANT do ANYTHING it in my own strength! Only when I am pressing into God and seeking His will for my life do I have victory!! That goes for big things and small (like the laundry and food).
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:10
Have you ever let go? Have you ever thrown your hands in the air and said “I can’t do it!” and allow God to work in your life?
