Yesterday I came across a photograph of my boys that was maybe from 7 years ago. Kids change so much so quickly, it’s beautiful and painful at the same time. Bitter sweet I guess you would call it. I just sat drinking in the picture. They were all huddled up close to one another, laughing, the baby on my 2nd oldest son’s shoulders—they were so happy. I am so grateful that their early and middle childhood years were happy years for them.
When my kids were really little we would sit on
Learn how to undermine the Underminer.
The Enemy of your soul is a Master of Distraction. He will use subtle little seemingly innocent circumstances to redirect your focus when you are plugged in to something Greater.
I see this a lot when people are on a fitness quest. The Enemy sees them become consistent and resolved. He see they want it and are getting after it…real commitment or even the desire to begin with it. He is subtle, he will use outside factors to derail your goals and
“As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.”
I really think this quote is cute. I’m not a golfer (yet), but I’ve been a few times and I kind of think it’s a hobby I could learn and be challenged and enjoy. But for now it’s a someday thing because I’m in the thick of paying for kids schooling and sports and some other things I’m working on…
My Dad is a golfer. Has been for years.
“I’m hammering out the details.”
This is the word that resignates in my Spirit this morning as I am praying about some deeply personal matters. As I was penning the words I heard,
“I’m hammering out the details.”
I began to think about it.
God is hammering out the details of your life today.
You may not understand or know much about what is happening in the world around you or in your own life, but God does, and that you can trust. He’s going to work it out.
Hammering out the details is just
God always equips us for how He calls us–
In the process of the equipping we endure a season constructed by heaven to retreat into the Savior’s Arms. Often times it requires a Night or a dark season of soul to relinquish our will for His.
Think back in your life to a time when it felt dark as night. You had a trouble or problem that was so much bigger than you and you didn’t know what to do. Maybe there wasn’t much you could do—just endure and perhaps you even
We live in such a superficial society.
Appearance is everything and vanity is it’s chief council.
There are countless strategies available to make us look and feel great. Everything from head to toe–you’re covered if you’re willing to spend the time, money and energy to consume what society is selling.
Sustenance is an interesting thing.
I have noticed over many years of my recent life that the more affluent circles of our nations population base are overall more physically fit with healthy weight management. There are exceptions to this, of course, but overall this
Through time trends come and then they go only to reappear again some time later.
Fitness is in style. Period. We live in a culture that has moved to the extreme in everything. Not only is fitness hip, but there are so many ways to express it.
When I was young I was always attracted to an athletic frame. Not just in men—women also. I had a deep regard for muscle tone and that “healthy” look. I found it appealing. Probably one of the reasons I became a sponge for all things
The human body is such a complex system of parts working together, functioning as a well organized and synchronized unit-creating, sustaining, and advancing LIFE.
People—be it your parents, your teacher, your coach, nutritionist or something you read somewhere or maybe a well versed in holistic medicine physician—will tell you of the importance associated with eating protein. But why?
Did you know…
The human body is made up entirely of cells. These microscopic powerhouses are enormously smart and control most of what happens in the body. A person with cancer or disease in the
There are so many fads and trends with fitness and nutrition. If you study their history you realize that nothing is truly new. Every fitness and eating plan recirculates and comes back “in style” or “trending” under a different name. What used to be the rage, the Atkins Diet, is now back, but relabeled for what it really is “Keto Diet”. Both diets nothing more than extreme carb restriction or elimination in order to put physiology in a state of ketosis.
Pilates was all the rage a few years back,
The high road is this way…
In my young married life–a season of the growth of my soul– I remember struggling with something and God helping me to learn to handle it. I remember having a dream of me carrying a cross just like Jesus did. Only I saw something in this dream that looked like a large hand reach down from the sky and gently pinch the large cross on my back as though it were only a stick and began to gently lift so the weight in my back
