It’s over, summer is gone and I’m sad! It went so quickly. I had such great expectations but it flew past in a whirlwind!!
I have the timehop app on my phone and it’s killing me!
Yup, that boy in the top picture that is almost as tall as my husband, this was his 1st day of Kindergarten! Where does it go? Time just keeps flying by!!
Don’t let this life slip past. I know God has great plans for anyone that will trust Him, seek Him and forget what they can do but look at what God can do with your life!!
It makes me think about the day I will stand before God.
“For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.”
2 Corinthians 5:10
“You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.
It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'”
So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” Romans 14:10-12
Will I have wished I lived differently? Will I have wished I loved more? I don’t want life to pass me by in a whirlwind and I don’t want to be consumed by things that don’t matter in the end.
So as a new school year begins I want to live purposefully, set my goals high, and live each day seeking God and His will for my life!
I was so busy this summer with my businesses and kids that I’ve allowed my time with God not be my priority. In turn my eating wasn’t great and workouts were here and there but not as consistent and I feel it and see it. It’s amazing how these three elements- Faith, Food, and Fitness, truly affect every aspect of your life.
It is so easy to NOT spend time with God, to NOT exercise, and to NOT eat well. Trust me Satan loves when we are in this place and he wants us to stay there. Know that God has so much more for us!!! When we spend time with Him we can hear His voice, He can guide our lives, and He gives us peace, love, and joy that surpasses all understanding!
When we exercise we are taking care of the body God has given us and exercise greatly affect our quality of life.
You are never to old to exercise and remember if you don’t use it, you lose it!
This will be a bit harsh but it is the truth. God designed amazing food for us to consume. He also gave us these incredible bodies that use His amazing food to nourish us with vitamins and nutrients to keep us strong!! Food has become so processed with syrups, dyes, and chemicals that it’s no longer food. These other products are making our world sick, causing people to over indulged, and because of the lack of nutrients our bodies will never be satisfied.
This is not how God designed us to operate and I know when I’m not taking the time to spend time with God everything else falls apart!!
Is food or fitness something you struggle with? I challenge you to stop.
Here is your challenge…spend time with God..get alone (even if it’s in the bathroom) lose distractions and cry out to God. Repent of being sucked into this world and it’s desires. Ask for Him to change you, one day at a time, one choice at a time, and let Him know you want to experience who He created you to be!! Prayer changes everything!!
So DON’T give up, start fresh, and next time you don’t want to exercise or you don’t know what to eat, ask the one who made you and designed you perfectly to help you!!!
Who will take the challenge!?!
