That moment when you realize God was planning for this day many years ago & brought things together in such a perfect crescendo to equip you (in 2015) with the proof that you are not crazy and that He has you!
SCREAMING HALLELUJAH!!! **Praise Break**
I am so thankful for the 50,000 coaches and friends that only God could have put together like this!
His Word is real and still holds true today...into eternity!

Have you ever felt your body resist you while your mind was willing? I did today! Then, from somewhere within, I felt like a deer in headlights in one part of my being and a "Let's get it!" Attitude on another part when I turned on a different part of my workout program that I had never done. It was 530am, I knew I was going to go all the way even in the presence of this resistence from within myself. I am just thankful that my will was greater than my flesh today. I really came to fully understand 1 Corinthians 9:27, it talks about beating my body and making it my slave. Our bodies are the vehicles that support us in carrying out our life's purpose. The flesh will do only what it's been trained to do. It has no mind of its own. In the changes inwardly and outwardly I have decided to make, I am re - training my body to serve me on a different level and instilling in it the endurance it needs to perform at optimal measures. It will surrender eventually. In the meantime, I will keep showing it that I mean business and not give in to its encouragement to stay where I've been. Just like a rubber band will go back into place unless it is stretched beyond its normal limits, so it is with our body, our minds, even our environments that we live, work and play. Challenge yourself. Push the limits. When you've gone as far as you think you can go, take 3 more steps, then add to it daily.

I thought of this while enjoying my daily regiment of fitness activities. Our bodies were meant to be used as the vehicle, the house for our souls to csrry out our life's purpose! I love seeing senior citizen aged people and babies climbing the mountain, running the 5 miles around or whatever. They have chosen to USE their muscles and will to remain strong. I don't know why I thought about this today. When we don't use our muscles, the experience of muscle atrophy (the wasting or loss of muscle tissue) occurs. Use it or lose it!
Many of you may not know this, but I used to work for the Federal Government! I spent 10 years there before going into private sector, then in business for myself. In the Federal Government, when so much leave was accrued that you had a surplus, you are required to "use it or lose it"! I would internally shake my head when people who were fully capable to go take some time for themselves, chose not to. I thought why not donate it if you aren't going to use it for yourself. YOU HAVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE & I ENCOURAGE YOU TO "LIVE WELL"! You were meant to be mobile. Ok, so if you have an injury or something preventing you from doing so (I understand). However, the majority do not. Everyday you have air & opportunity. So what you don't have a gym membership. God gave us the best gym yet...get outdoors and see what I'm talking about. You can do it. Park further from the front door of your office or store. Climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Don't get me started because I can give you some suggestions! #EliminateExcuses #YouAreWorthIt #ShoneShine #UseItOrLoseIt
