But, what does God say?

 

Hi, Beautiful!

Happy Friday!  It’s Freedom Friday and you made it through another week despite what you thought.  God is so awesome in that he gives us the strength needed moment by moment.

You’ve had doubts!  You’ve questioned your abilities!  You questioned your faith!  Your mind said you are not enough!  (Maybe that was just mine) Your heart said stop loving!  You were run by fear!  Your mind said so many things!  But, did you ever stop and say….

what does god sayBeautiful, God says:

  • You are equipped Eph. 2:10
  • You are worthy Psalm 139:13-14
  • You are enough 2 Cor 12:9-10
  • You are accepted Heb 12:6
  • You are never alone Deu 31:6, Heb 13:5
  • You can do all things Phip 4:13
  • You are forgiven Rom 8:1
  • He will direct your steps Prov 3:5-6
  • He will give you rest Matt 11:28-30

During those moments of doubting who you are and what you are going through, remember what God says!  Trust me, He made no mistake when He created and this too shall pass!  Keep standing strong, Beautiful!  Fly, Beautiful Butterfly, Fly!

Committed to the trial

Last year, I decided that I would pass on the vision board and focus on one word. As I prepared for 2019, I asked God for my word. I received “surrender” and “expect the unexpected”. Never would have I imagined that those words would be my journey to find out if I was really committed to God which has me asking…

AM I COMMITTED TO THE TRIAL?

What God has revealed to me is am I willing to stand no matter what? Am I willing to keep fighting when all things are breaking loose? Am I willing to keep pushing my purpose of reminding women of their beautiful when I question my own “beautiful”? Am I willing to commit to Him and His will for my life when I’m going through the trial?

And my answer is YES! Don’t get me wrong, it may be a hesitant yes because I have wondered why me. But then I’m reminded of the webinar that I presented that reminded my guests why not me.

You see, when God created us, He gave us a purpose and we will not be content doing anything else until we fulfill the assignment. Therefore, be willing to stand in the trial by:

  • Spending a moment examining any areas of your life where you’ve experienced a persistent struggle. Ask yourself have I leaned on God for the strength to endure
  • Asking yourself are you willing to embrace the need for change
  • Ask yourself how can you invite more ways to be open to the surrender
  • Ask yourself what lies beneath any unwillingness to stand
  • Acknowledging that things may not always work out as planned and letting that go

Beautiful, don’t you see.  It’s the very thing that you consistently struggle with that will be the thing that God uses to bless others.  We just have to lean into him for the strength to be committed to the end.  So, my question to you is are you committed to the trial?

 

If you are continuously pursuing your purpose but never getting there because life gets in the way…If there is chaos around you so loud that you that you have lost yourself in the process… If you are ready to stop saying WOE IS ME to WHY NOT ME…Then get Shift today to claim WHY NOT ME.  Take 20% by using CODE: SHIFT

It’s time for fun!

Hi, Beautiful!

When is the last time that you enjoyed the moment?  When is the last time that you let go of all your fears and to-do lists and just had some fun?  I know you have goals and dreams.  I know you have worry and concern.  I know you have doubts and fears but what I do know is that fun is oh so necessary!

Earlier this week, we received about 6 inches of snow so we had plenty of stuff to shovel.  But, we also had plenty of snow to get out and play in.  Normally, I would have left the task of entertaining the kids to my husband because I had to work.  Well this time, I was intentional in enjoying the moment.  We had a snowball fight and even went tubing down the hill.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen where I went live as they went down the hill.  Well what you didn’t see after that live was that I chose to go down the hill MYSELF.  Close your month – yes, I sure did!  And it was AMAZING!  It was amazing to get back to those childhood moments of playing and not caring about what needs to be done.  Just living life without any expectation other than FUN!  Don’t let life get in the way of living!  There is so much more to life than your to-do list, fear and worry.  Get out and LIVE!

I want to leave you with one more moment of encouragement.  As I was taking the kids to school this morning, “Get Back Up Again” by the Trolls came on and as we are listening, I really started to hear the message in the song.  It really did encourage me to keep going.  Be a kid again and listen to it and let it put a smile on your face!

Have a beautiful and fun filled weekend!  Fly beautiful butterfly, fly!
