Rarely do I recognize the extent of challenges in my path – more often than not, they’re challenges I make far more complicated than they need to be! Follow my intertwining AdvoCare journey… click HERE to Read More to the Story
In my desire to create transparency, I’ve elected to share the physical health journey as well – you’ll find a new tab on the Menu bar – My AdvoCare Journey . Although I have no idea what divine tapestry God is creating, I’m confident it transcends the physical.
I’d love for you to embark on this journey with me!
For months (and months) Romans 12:1 has been on my bathroom mirror…
“…in view of God’s mercy, offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.”
While I’m sure this verse can be interpreted many ways, to me it’s about transparency – is what’s on the inside apparent on the outside? Often perceptions can be skewed if we rely only on what we see physically. However, more often than not, we rely on physical sight alone.
For many years, I’ve been overweight. My physique can be perceived in many ways –
she doesn’t take pride in herself…
she has no self-control…
if she would only exercise…
does she look in the mirror????
I could go on and on, but you get the idea. The real question? What is she hiding from? If you’ve read my testimony, the answer is easy – rejection. To varying degrees, I have placed my value in the affirmation of others – I have circled that mountain many times, but each time God brings me closer and closer to Him. I’m moving beyond intellect to belief .
Join me on this part of my journey as I seek God’s courage to tear down the physical barriers and allow Him full restoration access.
Gosh – it hardly seems possible 8 months could pass with no writing – certainly not for the lack of topics! While I can’t make up for lost time, I can start anew…looking forward to writing regularly – stay tuned!
18 “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
