I lost the weight when I changed my mind. (Proverbs 23:7) realized that God is more than able (Ephesians 3); realized He has a plan which includes me (Jeremiah 29:11)
- It requires a shift in recognizing who God created you to be
- a shift in knowing He will always help you no matter what
- Realize you are forgiven, loved & redeemed
- recognize God created you for a purpose, that purpose doesn’t include destruction, confusion or compromise
- He calls you blessed!
Everyday I focus my attention toward keeping #firstthingsfirst by honoring God & allowing Him access to invade my life. To detox my mind, my heart & my body as He sees appropriate! This cleansing gets rid of the excess weight we often carry around! (Hebrews 12)
We have this short time in life, and God intended for every minute to matter. God created you with a purpose. That purpose will always exceed pain. If you’ve gone through something difficult, what the enemy intended for harm, God will use for His glory.

I was invited to hear this song today and have officially adopted it as my theme song for the year cuz I KNOW that as He’s lovin’ the best of me I will automatically lose the rest of me and that can only make me stronger!
You’re askin’ why is it always rainin’ on you, when all you want is just a little good news instead of always standin’ there stuck out in the weather…When the waves are takin’ you under, hold on just a little bit longer, He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, the pain ain’t gonna last forever, and things can only get better, Believe me this is gonna MAKE YOU…” (Stronger by Mandisa-from the new Album What if We Were Real)

I literally stumbled upon this blog and have fallen in love with her passion, her ability to be transparent and cause you to feel like you aren’t alone in your journey to become more like Christ, identify with other women and be used tremendously by the Lord.
Her recent book Becoming More than A Good Bible Study Girl was profound. I opened the book thinking it would be a ‘how to’ on doing word studies, using a concordance and all that fun stuff. Nope. It was a key that opened up my innermost hidden places. Those places that have been vulnerable to rejection, vulnerable to insecurities, vulnerable to other peoples needs even and vulnerable to brokenness. EVEN, to my surprise, it opened the true desire I have to be passionate for Christ. A MUST READ!
