We worked on ENDURANCE tonight and rocked a Total Body Workout. Unfortunately endurance takes practice and hard work and repetition. And there different types of endurance....muscular & cardiovascular, for example. It's amazing how long it takes to build up...and how quickly it can go away.
Now, what does that have to do with pruning?Pruning is good for plants...but what about when it comes to us? When we face hard times do we run from it or do we lean into the Lord and try to focus on the bigger picture?! The purpose for the pain? “He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” John 15:2
The purpose is to be better, stronger, bolder, more beautiful and build endurance!
Today I read in the book Becoming MOMSTRONG and this quote hit me in the heart....
"We all have to endure hardship and pain in this life. When we ENDURE what we are really doing is outlasting the enemy long enough to let the MASTER pruner do what HE needs to do in our lives for HIS glory. The Lord is the Master Gardner-if you'll let Him, He will use your past and your pain to produce fruit far beyond what you could ask or imagine." (Heidi St John)
You can trust the PRUNING is for a PURPOSE! Remember endurance is built by going through the training & work. The purpose of pruning is to build endurance to face what comes next....you will face hard times, will you be ready? #endurance#prunning#championcrosstraining#faithandfitness#fitnessministry#heisthegardener#fitmom#workout#purpose#goals#growth#blessed#fitfluential#fitfam#stregthtraining
Waiting at a cafe for my coaching client today - sometimes I have to take stock of where my road has bought me and how much I love the work I do. For such a big part of my life I put my high heels on and trotted onto the trading floor the size of a football field (no exaggeration) and sat in front of multiple computer screens pecking at my keyboard like a battery hen. I knew I wasn’t serving in the way I was called to, I wasn’t creating transformation, I wasn’t witnessing big shifts or aha moments - I was simply going through the motions. Today after a very long road I am so honoured to live my true purpose - I wouldn’t rather be doing anything else! Now I get to help other people find their true purpose - I am so grateful for all of it
I've been feeling focused and happy and full of life since recommitting to my dreams. This Kuan Yin oracle explained to me that right now my actions are being supported by a larger energy field, like a more powerful engine. I haven't felt this way for a long time.... l've had many difficult conversations with God this past year about how all I want is to want to live my purpose, but I can't fake it, and I refuse to do it out of fear of disappointing my guides, but because I was made for this. I just want to be me. My patience is paying off. #guidance#love#support#growth#change#kuanyin#compassion#mother#oracle#purpose#dreams#life
Why do we feel the need to compete with one another? It's always about who has the better car, house, clothes - it even spills into our parenting! Our kid has to be smartest, reach milestones the quickest and has to be better than the rest - what are we trying to prove? I wake up every morning feeling #purpose - I am so #grateful to be your #mama#babygirl -- you remind me to be thankful for all the beautiful things in our life. xx #letthelightin#love#motherhood#daddysgirl#parents
