Pilates and God’s Strength

Today I officially rerererererestarted my pilates routine and let me tell you – sometimes one does not realize that Christ truly is your strength until you restart a pilates routine after months of relative sedentariness. I’ve never prayed for my abs more in my life.

I’m happy to report that I survived (in case you thought I was writing you from the Other Side) and am actually feeling really good. I know it’s better to finish than to start, but starting is important too. And it’s nice. In other news, don’t judge me for starting a resolution in February instead of January. I have my reasons.

I know it’s already February but hopefully y’all haven’t given up on your 2018 resolutions yet! I BELIEVE IN YOU. I at least believe y’all can make it until March.

At any rate, whatever it is you’re doing, starting, or just getting into at the crux of 2018, remember that you got this (until March at least…)

KIDDING! I kid. You can totally do it. God says to commit your ways to Him and He will guide your paths.

We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer.
People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.
Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.
Proverbs 16:1-3

If you are doing something with a pure heart God will bless your efforts and guide you.

God’s love is completely unstoppable. His plans for you are unstoppable. The combination of prayer and determination is absolutely unbeatable and our God is always able. He will open doors for you that no one else can! Whatever you’re doing, do it for God and it will be awesome.

Now I just have to remind myself of this tomorrow when my abs are sore.


The Return

Hi, guys!!

It’s nice to be back on the blog again. I took a little bit of a hiatus (almost 2 years, if you’re insistent on being technical…) and as you can imagine, a lot of life happened in that time. Coffee was consumed. Adventures were had. Two or three full seasons of Real Housewives were watched.

While I was “hiating,” however, I thought a lot about this blog and about writing in general. The truth is, I’ve missed this.

I was checking the mail the other day and on my journey to the mailbox a thought struck me… I’d forgotten to get groceries and would have to figure out how to make dinner with what I had: lemons and rice.

And then another thought. Is lemon rice a thing? And then, naturally, why am I not blogging?

And here, folks, I am. Blogging again.

This time around I’d like to do things a teensy bit differently. I’m still here to uplift you and inspire you, but I also want to be more personal. In between posts written to inspire, I’ll talk about life and my response to it. Should be fun!

Til next time,
