Often times when God asks us to do something that we think is too big or out of our comfort zone, we immediately start trying to figure out how to make it happen. But, self-reliance is the total opposite of needing God to do what only He can do. It’s not walking in faith, sis. . Walking in faith will require more than you currently have or can do on your own. It will cause you to rely on God and His ways. The job that you want, apply for it. The business you’ve been thinking about, start it. The house you’ve always dreamed of, God has qualified you for it. Make a choice from this day forward to walk in faith. Your future is depending on it. . If this is for you post “faith walker” below👇 . . . . #WalkinFaith #Faith #Trust #GodIsGood #Trustworthy #LoveGod #TrustGod #GodLovesYou #HaveFaith #ComfortZone #Qualified #Truth #Reminder #ReadThis #Positivity #Amen #GoodNews #GodsPlan #HeWontDisappoint #GodisLove #Encouragement #BeEncouraged #Wisdom #SITC #SavedintheCity
June 22 The Unchanging Law of Judgment By Oswald Chambers . With what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. —Matthew 7:2 . This statement is not some haphazard theory, but it is an eternal law of God. Whatever judgment you give will be the very way you are judged. There is a difference between retaliation and retribution. Jesus said that the basis of life is retribution— “with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” If you have been shrewd in finding out the shortcomings of others, remember that will be exactly how you will be measured. The way you pay is the way life will pay you back. This eternal law works from God’s throne down to us (see Psalm 18:25-26). . Romans 2:1 applies it in even a more definite way by saying that the one who criticizes another is guilty of the very same thing. God looks not only at the act itself, but also at the possibility of committing it, which He sees by looking at our hearts. To begin with, we do not believe the statements of the Bible. For instance, do we really believe the statement that says we criticize in others the very things we are guilty of ourselves? The reason we see hypocrisy, deceit, and a lack of genuineness in others is that they are all in our own hearts. The greatest characteristic of a saint is humility, as evidenced by being able to say honestly and humbly, “Yes, all those, as well as other evils, would have been exhibited in me if it were not for the grace of God. Therefore, I have no right to judge.” . Jesus said, “Judge not, that you be not judged” (Matthew 7:1). He went on to say, in effect, “If you do judge, you will be judged in exactly the same way.” Who of us would dare to stand before God and say, “My God, judge me as I have judged others”? We have judged others as sinners— if God should judge us in the same way, we would be condemned to hell. Yet God judges us on the basis of the miraculous atonement by the Cross of Christ.

Great time tonight at #monumentalyoga with my @fitnessimprovementstogether and my little brother, Sam! . He’s starting High School this year. Thanks @bigbrothers_bigsisters for pairing us 4 years ago!
BRAVE. Being brave means facing your own personal challenges. It's not comparing you with, or to, anyone else, but acknowledges that many decisions made around reaching your current level of fitness were brave ones. They include taking that leap of faith and sticking to your guns and going hard. It's about braving cold temps and early starts. It's about being brave enough to stuff yourself with hundreds of calories during the bulking stage (what sane woman ever wants to do that?) hahah; it's about allowing your brave acts to inspire others in a positive way; it's braving injuries, aches and pains; and maybe at the end it's about congratulating yourself on combining motherhood, marriage, work and working out to convert the BRAVE to a BRAVO ~ - - 💎 Something I have been working on with a beautiful soul ~ stay tuned ✌️ - - 💎 #fightingstrong #selfbelief #believinginmyself #mentalstrength #competionprep #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #bodybuildingmotivation #bodytransformation #mshealthandfitness2018 #vote #fitnessmodel #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitmom #fitness #strengthtraining #strength #icn #iamoxygen #muscle #womenempowerment #supportingeachother #womenwholift #babymumma #pushingthelimits #determination #encouragement #power

#nationalselfieday I love selfies. I love other people’s selfies. People complain about the narcissism that appears to be present when people post selfies. How dare this person feel good about showing their face? Who do they think they are? How vain, shallow, superficial, selfish. Screw a bunch of that. I have entire swaths of my life that are poorly documented because I feared and criticized every single photo I saw myself in. Before smartphones and instant images, I often refused to be in front of a camera, even during special events and moments I now regret not having a snapshot of. How ridiculous in retrospect to allow my insecurity and discomfort in my own skin to cause me to hide literally from participating in my life. Self-love and self-acceptance are a radical revolution, especially when the world constantly encourages you to keep your head down. Keep sharing your light—including your selfies. The world needs people willing to show up exactly as themselves and say, “Here I am. Take it or leave it, but I’m gonna do my thing.” ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤
ThrowBack! I enjoyed working with these kids so much. They all participated, never complained, and were eager to learn. If you have any influence over any group of young people be sure to always Encourage and Motivate them. They need to know there is someone who believes in them and cares about them. 💪🏾#T5Fitnes #personaltrainer #bootcamp #hardwork #workhard #Motivation #dontquit #nevergiveup #believe #achieve #dedication #Determination #fit #fitness #workout #gym #grind #run #NoExcuses #encouragement #motivate #fitfam #bodybuilding #goals #running #motivation #youth #children #motivate
Note to self: always remember to look up. In the midst of #TimesSquare earlier today I was so peaceful. I wanted to say in that moment during #yoga . I need to be more mindful to clear out the mind chatter. 🕉🙏🏻💫 . . . . #summeratadler #summer #summerinthecity #summersolstice2018 #summersolstice #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #timessquare #manhattan #timessquareyoga #aerie #concretejungle #thebigapple #thursday #lookup #nofilter #nofilterneeded #encouragement
I need to do a combo post here, because I couldn't be successful on my journey without this man by my side, and we have both come a LONG way with our health and fitness in the last few years! Jon started working out about four years ago and at first, I resented that he was getting in shape and I was still "stuck" where I was. He was seeing the scale go down and feeling better about himself, but he was also completely dedicated to his fitness and I was doing NOTHING. Even when I was hard on myself and feeling like I looked awful, Jon ALWAYS made sure to tell me how beautiful I was 😊 And when I finally made the decision to start working on my own health, he was my biggest supporter--constantly encouraging me, pushing me, and being my own personal trainer. Fast forward to a few months ago when I decided to become a health and wellness coach, and he didn't even hesitate in telling me to "go for it". We are both in so much better shape, and we can finally be active together 🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♂️💪 I am so lucky and thankful 😍 #blessedlife #husbandandwife #support #encouragement #fitmama #momof3 #activefamily #activecouple #familythattrainstogether #wellnesscoach #wellnesscoach #weightlossjourney #spouses #love #thankfulthursday #throwbackthursday #fitness #couplegoals #goals #gainz
There are two types of hope: Wishing something would happen or waiting eagerly and confidently for that something to happen. Thankfully, hoping in Jesus Christ is the latter. We can know, as Christians, that we will one day see the object of our hope face to face.

Wives should want to see other wives win. Period. We should lift them up when they are down, give hope when they want to give up, and be a listening non-judgemental ear when needed. #bethewife

Yes, adulting is hard. It’s hard to be responsible, which is why self care is so important. But I’d rather change that word “self care” to “being loved” by the Lord, or more accurately, “Loving God by obeying Him (and allowing Him) to love me.” . . Being a Mom, there’s so many times that I tell my daughter she can’t stay up late or have that extra piece of chocolate, and what do I do? That exact thing I told her she couldn’t do a second ago...because I’m an adult and do what I want! / I deserve to reward myself because life is rough. But, that “self care treat” never ends up being the kind of indulgence that really fills my need. . . After I’m still unsatisfied, the Lord points out to me why—yes I’m an adult, but I’ll always need a heavenly Father who knows what’s best for me. Yes I’m a parent, but I still need to be parented. . . Listening and obeying His Spirit, while I may protest like a toddler, is always the best version of “self care” because He know’s what’s best for my self when I can only see what I want in the moment. And sometimes, that means forgoing the chocolate, going to bed early, and rising with a renewed mind. . . No matter what kind of dad you had, God is Your Father. He wants you to listen up because He knows and loves you fully, and is leading you into perfection in Him. He delights in giving you lovely things like sunshine and ice cream and outings with friends, but most of all, He enjoys celebrating every single one of life’s gifts WITH you (I’m picturing a big dance party here)! . . Obedience is not meant to break us in but break us out into abundant life. Take a moment for your self to be with Him —listen— and be loved. . . What is self-care to you? . For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" - Romans 8:15

You need to tell that worry that's plaguing your mind that God is in control. Tell that doubt that's causing you to question God's ability, that God is in control. The enemy will do whatever he can to try and steal your faith. Don't trust in how it looks; how it looks doesn't tell you facts like: God is ordering your footsteps, that God is leading you by a way that you don't know (on purpose), that God chose you for destiny before He created you. How it looks leaves so much stuff out that you cannot depend on it. Depend on God! He's always in control! #Inspiration #SpiritualInspiration #Faith #Encouragement #TrustInGod #Blessed #Favored #God #Jesus #HolySpirit #Pray #Grace #SpiritualWarfare #Love #Peace #Joy #Purpose #GiveIttoGod #GodIsAble #Faithful #Repost #Holy #Spiritual #Repent #GodOverPorn #Change #Hope #Mercy #Forgiveness
“Gosh, I really hope all those kids aren’t yours!” That’s the first thing I heard as I walked through the door at our local donut shop! I smiled and walked forward with my head held high. I have my nieces this morning, so I’m sure anyone from the outside looking at me with 6 kids probably thinks I’m crazy. These comments used to bother me a lot, I took them so personally. They don’t bother me anymore because I know that I’m a darn good mom! And that it’s nobody’s business how many kids I have, if they are all mine, if they all have the same dad, if we are done having kids, etc. (Yes, these are all things I am asked on a regular basis!) But it did get me thinking. What would our world look like if we were constantly lifting others up instead of tearing them down? What would it look like if instead of asking rude questions to a tired mama, telling her she’s doing an amazing job. Or stopping to look her in the eyes and sharing that you’ve been there before, and this season goes quickly so enjoy it while they are little! Or to take the time to reach out to the mom with the screaming toddler in the store to encourage her. So she knows she’s not alone and that she’s a dang good mom! Even something as simple as smiling at someone and telling them to have a great day. Or even going as far as saying hello and actually having a meaningful conversation with them. Just thoughts I have this morning. There are days where I can get overwhelmed with our kids, our schedules are crazy, and most nights, I fall into bed right as my eyes are closing! But man, am I blessed! Being a mom is the greatest honor of my life, and even when others don’t understand, I will keep my head held high and keep loving my babies the best I know how! Take time today to lift someone up❤️❤️
