It’s cooling down here in Brisbane, which is great !! Getting out to walk/run, or even just doing a workout in general is just so much more enjoyable. I kinda (like a LOT) hate being hot. So, PRAISE GOD for Autumn !!
As you all know, I’m on a journey of being more obedient to the Holy Spirit and allowing him to work through me with my passion for Health & fitness. As I revealed in my previous blog, I’ve started a instagram, solely for my health & fitness posts. Check it out here if you haven’t already. I have been blown away by the response, and what an encouragement it has been to me.
(For those already following, I did have to rebrand ever so slightly, as the original was just too close to the Fab Fit Fun box company. Whoopsie ! )
Back to the obedience journey… some equipment has been purchased, leaps of faith have been made, and confidence found that I didn’t realise I had. Not too sure when I’ll fully reveal this particular Holy Spirit prompting… but I’ll say it’s BIG.. and it’s something I NEVER thought I’d ever be doing.
I’m so reminded of Isaiah 54:2 Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.
It’s actually really fun (while also being scary) to 100% get onboard with God’s plans for you. Like I said, I’m being taken down paths I never thought I’d trod…. and learning so much on the way. Making new friends, learning new skills… moving my tent pegs out further.
Another passage that was highlighted for me these past few weeks… which I really think has basically became the mantra of my life 3 years ago, is I Corinthians 9:26-27 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
Now, HELLO.. if that isn’t some accountability scripture right there, I don’d know what is. Ever since I put my very first health and fitness related blog up 3years ago (read it here), I was very aware that I was making myself more accountable in that area. I knew that while any info I shared was all to do with me, my journey, my experiences etc etc, there were other people that would quite possibly take the suggestions on, or make similar changes in their lives.
The responsibility of this did not go un-noticed by me. I wouldn’t call it a weight, but it is a constant ‘presence’.. something for me to constantly bear in mind.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 is a constant reminder for me of what I ultimately need to be doing in my health & fitness outreach. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. and Proverbs 27:17 also reminds me that I’M actually being helped greatly throughout this journey, as I connect with others who are likeminded Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
I’d really love your prayers as I walk further down this new path. It’s exciting, but it’s also nerve racking.. so yes, any prayers would be appreciated.
Blessings Peeps !!
