Hello all! It’s Thursday, and I am just downright excited (I don’t want to overuse exclamation points, because I could, really easily). What has me so revved up this morning? God is up to some really amazing things in my life. Let me share…
I am getting ready to wrap up the Ultimate Oxygen Challenge. With only eleven days left, the end is right in front of me. Now, realistically, I know my body has not changed enough to win the contest. But that’s OK. I don’t mind at all. The past ten weeks has been filled with discipline, learning, commitment, and more learning. I’ve learned I am truly capable of completing anything God sets my heart to, and that is really where it’s at. Not only that, but making it into Strong Magazine’s Training Guide clinched that goal/dream in my mind.
Second, we are getting ready to kick off the next and final challenge for the year (for me anyway). I am SUPER excited about this! Super. Not too long ago, I had no idea what was going to be next. With one invitation by a great friend, and reading the first several chapters of a book, I received confirmation of what the next thing was, and off I went. I am both blessed and amazed at the number of ladies participating in this challenge, as well as the content and ideas that are flowing from my mind. God is good and He has some great things in store for everyone participating (including my daughters, how awesome is that?!) and following along. I know it in my spirit.
Third, I spoke with a publishing consultant yesterday, and there is a company willing to publish my book. Book?! What book?! The book I have had stirring in my heart for the past year. The book that will be the summation of all the good things God has done in my life. The book I believe will be both a testimony and template to inspire others to allow Christ to become the Master Engineer in their life, where the end product is a whole individual – spirit, soul and body. The book I only have an outline for and little time to invest, but know God will empower me to make time to create, because He has shared the vision and will make it happen. Remember when I blogged about my testimony? This is the follow-up to that. Ah-mazing.
I believe in the power of prayer. So I have a request. Will you please pray with me? The ONLY thing I desire is to know God’s heart, and in turn, communicate and live it out in my life. Please pray I am increasingly sensitive to His voice. Please pray I keep Him, my husband, my children and my family/friends/community in the forefront of my mind, while He moves through me with the challenge and writing. Please pray I do not try to move things along in my own strength, but rely only on Him and His timing. Please pray that I am reminded every day that with God all things are possible, because my mind would like me to believe my current time constraints render His visions impossible.
Thank you dearly! Much Love.
