Soul Fitness: Strengthening Your Core {a change in perspective}

Happy Monday Girlfriends,

I have no doubt that over the past two weeks during all of the upheavals, changes and disruptions, you have had many opportunities to exercise your trust muscle! Whether you need someone to cheer for you to keep going, or to encourage you to get going, I hope these posts are helpful as we journey on together.

You`re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God. You’re blessed when you follow His directions, doing your best to find Him. That`s right- you don`t go off on your own; you walk straight along the road He set.Psalm 119:4 (MSG)

We really are in this together. So… here is the third video for Soul Fitness: Strengthening Your Core. I am sharing a perspective shifting bit of wisdom a friend blessed me with a few years ago. It was life-giving and life-changing. I hope it is for you too.

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.2 Corinthians 4:16 (MSG)

Grace and peace to you,

PS. You may view the first two Soul Fitness video blogs here and here. Please feel free share with anyone who may need hope, encouragement and God’s truth at this unsettled time. The truth is, we can’t do this alone – we all need Jesus and each other. xo

    Amen, sister! That’s how I felt those times shortly after losing my soulmate to cancer. I would never want to go back to those times, but I would also never want to give up the intimacy gained with my Savior!

      Rose: Thank you. It is what you learned during your deep grief that is holding you steady today. I just prayed for you. Stay safe and well. xo

    Thank you for this message today ❤️ I am treading water but this reminded me again that our Savior walks on water ❤️

      Jan: I am praying for you right now. Everything has changed, but He has not. Stay safe and well, my friend. xo

    Hi Laura, Thank you for helping me focus on my TRUST muscle…As you described, I have also felt like I’ve been living under water for the last 5 years. That is a great analogy! My father died suddenly on 9/11/15 and my world has been turned upside down since that day…many good days and some long trials as well. It appears we will be navigating this COVID-19 pandemic for a while longer…so I pray that I will be able to come up for air when this pandemic ends and move forward by the Grace of God when 9/11/2020 rolls around. Thank you Sister 🙏 Linda

      Linda: Thank you so much for sharing. I remember you and I experienced loss of our parents at around the same time. It is so so hard, but God is faithful. xoxo

    Deep and meaningful. God has encouraged me to try harder with scripture memorization during this time. That way, until memory fades, I will hide His word in my heart that I might not sin against him. Psalm 121 and 2 Corinthians 4 are the challenges. Thank you, as always, for sharing from your heart. You inspire and encourage all of us and we appreciate your love and care.

      Thank you once again for your encouragement, Jenni. You continue to be a blessing to me. xoxo
