New Discoveries

I had some new discoveries this past week…..
I finally walked on my hands….to some this is not exciting but for me it has been something I have wanted to do for so long.  Set small goals, take baby steps, never give up and you can do anything!!! (Next goal is to walk around the room:)

I also learned I can’t live without my shake.  I went off Shakeology for almost two weeks to see how I would feel.  Well I wanted to eat my house all day every day.  My skin got breakouts and I really didn’t feel good.  Last Monday I went back to having my shake for breakfast and I’m a new women.  Energy without coffee all day, no cravings (that is just crazy for me), not hungry (which is crazier) because I am always hungry.   So my experiment proved that my body responds so well to all the nutrition in the shake and helps me to be satisfied!!! Here was the shake I had all week, it’s new favorite!

This last discovery wasn’t and isn’t fun but God’s overwhelming lesson this past week is that He makes ALL thing beautiful!
Ecclesiastes 3:11 which says, “God has made everything beautiful for its own time.”
No matter how terrible a season of life is He promises to use it for good and Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Back when I went to church, prayed and read my bible speratically I was a mess in my regular life.  I was filled with stress, worry, and no peace.  When life got hairy in the past I turned to food to ease my stress. I would get angry and depressed and eat, which in turn made me more angry and depressed.
This week God has carried me through a rough season of life and I am humbled by what an amazing God we have.  He wants us to know Him, to follow Him, and give Him everything so He can give us something more beautiful then we could dream or imagine for ourselves.
When I met God on the side of the road at 29 years old, I gave Him my life.  I said “take me, mold me, shape me into who you created me to be and use it for your glory!”   This time I meant it. I had said those words before but I was still holding on to my plans and my ideas. It wasn’t until I truly gave Him my life that I saw His power and who He really is!
#1 Our God is big…bigger then everything in your life, bigger then your small plans, bigger then your greatest fear.  He is so big!!
#2. He’s got it all figured out…you can try, you can plan, you can worry yourself to death…but it won’t change a thing! He has great plans for those who trust Him.
#3 He loves us soooo much!!! He wants us to trust Him, to know Him, and to love Him more then anything in this life!  He says when you seek me you will find me.
#4 It won’t always be easy but He promises to make all things beautiful!

As I start a new week especially the week of Thanksgiving I am thankful for everything God has done in my life.  Every new discovery is shaping me into who He has called me to be, and I’m thankful for everyday that I get another chance at discovering all He has in store!!

I don’t and won’t ever get everything right but as long as I keep my heart and eyes on Him I know everything will be ok!!!
With love,

    Hi Shannon! I am a new reader, and I’ve gone back and devoured practically every post and now I am wondering: Do you plan to host anymore boot camps this Fall? I would LOVE to get involved. It’s exactly the community I’ve been looking for….I also have a girlfriend that adores the idea.
    Anyways, keep up the good work!
