Black Friday: God’s Moving Faster Than a Black Friday Shopper!

Black Friday used to start around midnight, but now it’s starting earlier and earlier. So in the spirit of things moving so fast I posted tomorrow’s blog ahead of schedule to sink up with the theme.

God is moving so fast and it’s a new day and a new moment in time where God wants us to get up and get going on what He has called for us to do. I know it’s not easy, but God wants to bring freedom in every area of our lives.

Nothing is impossible for God so wherever you are struggling right now, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression etc. Just know God wants to set you free so you can move. Move forward and don’t be left behind because God’s moving faster than a speeding bullet train, He’s moving faster than a Black Friday Shopper!

Come on, let’s go with God and make a difference in people around us each and every day!

Giving Thanks: Thoughts, Prayers and Worship!

Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had an amazing day. Are you excited about what God is doing right now? He is moving so fast and bringing so much provision in every conceivable way. Bring your thanks to God and then go out and find someone to lift up this week. I promise you won’t have to look far to make a major difference in a life around you and truly bring someone hope!

Too many times this year I sort of checked out and became lazy and went my own way. I’m not waiting until 2016 to change this. There is no way I deserve all of God’s amazing goodness but He’s been doing whatever it takes to keep cheering me on and He will do the same for you.
May God give us the strength and grace to obey Him more and more in Jesus Name!

Today’s Worship:

On this Thanksgiving Day,
As we worship and we pray,
We take the time to thank you, Jesus
We take the time to thank you.

As we bow our heads and pray
And we worship at your feet, Jesus
We take the time to thank you.
We take the time to thank you.

What are you thankful for today?

Body Image: Do you struggle to find Balance with Food over the Holidays?

Studies show body image struggles often begin around the age of six. Maybe it’s because we grow up here in America with so many Barbie Dolls, mirrors and general focus on what we look like. Many of us also develop negative Body Images because our moms had one and that’s what we grew up with. Sometimes the stress of the Holidays like Thanksgiving can be just enough to trigger you to start ping ponging between eating enough to not eating or anything in between. We want to enjoy the Holidays without letting our health go sideways, but that’s easier said that done at times, right?

What is the hardest thing for you about your body image, food and the holidays?
