Crossing the Fine Line

I’ve always enjoyed sharing what I’ve learned. But I haven’t always shared in the best of ways.

When I first started learning about healthy eating several years ago, I passionately shared my experiences with my family and friends. I learned the difference between just counting calories, and being aware of harmful ingredients in processed foods. For me, the information was life-changing, and I knew they’d all want to make the same changes in their diets.

But not all of them agreed with my views.

The Lord has kept me faithful to walk every weekday morning ever since March. I’ve enjoyed the benefits of looser clothing, more energy, and reduced weight. I’ve learned that regaining my health and fitness is a process, and sometimes it’s tedious and boring work.

But not when I can ponder as I walk.

Good Enough

What, exactly, is "good enough"?

Whether it's our diet, our walk with God, our jobs, or just plain living life, seems we always try to measure up to something. 

We stress and strive to be "good enough".

Honor and Celebration

On this MultiColor Monday, I'm honoring the loyal, faithful, and dedicated service men and women who have fought for our freedom: our veterans.

And I'm celebrating another blessed weekend with another group of wonderful God-fearing women.

What's Cookin', Part 2: the Missing Ingredient

Good morning, y'all, and Happy Fitness Friday! 

TODAY'S CHALLENGE:  Are you frustrated with trying to change yourself? If so, I hope you find encouragement in this message.

I've been meaning to write Part 2 of What's Cookin' Part 1 for a while now, but kept getting side-tracked. If you haven't read the first message (or like me, if you need a refresher because it's been so long!), please read now or some of this post may not make sense.

Back to the beans...

What Are You Promoting?

As I thought and prayed about what to write this morning for MultiColor Monday, I remembered a rap song I heard a few months ago. In the song, the artist names 12 men and women and calls them "false teachers" for a variety of different reasons. 

What is the artist promoting?

Details aren't important here. What IS important are the incredible reactions of agreement and judgement within the body of Christ to one man's judgement of another person's faith, motives, and teachings. 

What were the people promoting with their comments?
