It's Tuesday, which means I'm linking up with the lovely Kerrie for:
This is one of my favorite link-ups, because it challenges me to be more open about my faith. I've never been one to talk about it very openly unless asked, but that is something that I hope to change.
Do I want to start pushing my beliefs on others? Of course not. But do I want to share how accepting Jesus as my savior has immensely improved my life? Absolutely!
So thank you Kerrie, for the inspiration :)
God has been doing some major work in my life this year. He is showing me how important and rewarding it is to just let go and trust Him. I've never felt more confident with who I am and where I'm at in life than I do right now.
But if I'm being honest, this weekend threw me for a loop. I didn't post anything yesterday because I was still working on putting things back together.
It's not something that I want to go into detail about on bloggy here, and there were luckily no consequences to my actions. But nonetheless, something happened that had me questioning myself.
For me personally, there is no harder feeling than being disappointed in myself. That's exactly what I felt, and with it, an immense amount of guilt.
It sucked. But I definitely needed that reality check.
And with the reality check came an overwhelming realization of how much I need God. How His love and mercy can pull me out of any bad mood or off day. He had already forgiven me, and I needed His help to forgive myself. I needed Him to remind me that my reaction to what I did showed more about me and my character than the action itself.
And as always, His timing was perfect when I stumbled across this verse:
Yet I still belong to you; you are holding my right hand.
You will keep on guiding me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.
Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart,
he is mine forever.
Psalm 73: 23-26
God reminded me this weekend that my faith will always be my foundation. I am human, and I will make mistakes. But God knows that, He made me. And He saved me in spite of my sins.
And knowing that can pull me out of any rough patch.
So now that I'm back to feeling like myself again, let's take a breather from the serious stuff, shall we? Here's a sneak peak at posts to come this week:
Remember the photo shoot that I mentioned? Were you wondering why I was in gym clothes and high heels? Well it's because I finally got around to documenting the three leg workouts that will seriously kick your butt. I guess that still doesn't really explain the high heels, but hey. I went all out, okay? This Lower Body Blast class always leaves me with shaking legs and I'm here to share why.
And also, last night my roommates and I had the best Easter party:
Complete with a delicious meal, dying Easter eggs and exchanging Secret Easter Basket gifts, I think it's safe to say we made the Easter Bunny proud.
So come back soon, will ya?
