FIT FOR SERVICE
God called to (Moses) from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” “Here I am!” Moses replied. (God said) “Now go, for I am sending you to Pharaoh. You must lead my people Israel out of Egypt.” But Moses protested to God, “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” God answered, “I will be with you.” Exodus 3:4, 10–12 NLT
Moses felt inadequate for the task God was calling him to. He felt not only insufficient but also unworthy. He asked God, “Who am I?” In essence, he was telling God, “I am nobody.” I love this note from Matthew Henry’s commentary: “The more fit any person is for service, commonly the less opinion he has of himself.”* That was true for Moses, and I find it true in many instances.
No matter how unfit I may feel to be used by God or even to lead, if God calls me to it, He will equip me for it. And like Moses, I never have to do it alone. God’s presence always goes with me if I am following His will.
In the presence of God, the weak become strong, the broken become whole, the shy become confident, the worthless become worthy, the unsure become wise, and the shamed become honored.
I have found that every time I have an excuse for not doing something God has called me to do, He always has an answer. Sometimes that answer means I have to overcome a fear. Sometimes it means letting God work through my weakness. Other times, it might mean that God completely removes the obstacle. Our God, the Great I Am, is faithful. He will always do what He says with or without my help. But I would rather be in the fight—and not a spectator. *Matthew Henry, Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible: Exodus, http:// www.biblegateway.com/resources/matthew-henry/Exodus. -from The Bible In Poetry: Volume One: The Old Testament
With the demands of your own business, the first thing I let slip was my eating. Then as a result my fitness suffered and then my training stopped.
Nearly 2 years into the business now and it's time to change. @thewarhousegym is a local one off gym in in in Reading, Pa owned and ran by @danalinnbailey and @killrobbailey. Both are inspiring me that I can be fit, and successful.
hey are doing it, so can I.
Thank you for the inspiration to get back on track, I will get back in shape starting today, and in the spring I will train at this gym! I guess this journey is the road to the WarHouse

This is still one of the best quotes ever. Maybe not ever, I just love it.
Friends, don't stop trying to make changes because of a broken past, past mistakes or whatever is holding you back. Keep moving forward, share your beauty with the world! #jesusgirl#personaldevelopment#fitforservice
The best part of my day, giving my first to God. The first part of my day, studying his Word, to have a dialogue with Him. This morning I prayed for help to break strongholds. I can only do these things with Him, He is my life support. I also prayed for eyes to see someone who needs help and the heart to act upon it. I prayed for words of encouragement, wisdom and kindness to serve others. #jesusgirl#fitforservice#fittoserve#obedienceproceedsfreedom#redeemedfreedom
Freedom!!! For, many years, I had an identity crisis. I thought, my identity was found in appearance, a number on the scale, material items, money, the amount of friends I had. All of that lead to heartache, striving for things that would never bring true happiness and low self worth.
When I was saved by God's grace and mercy, it wasn't until then, I began to know my true identity. I'm a daughter of the King, my God. Who has said I am fearfully and wonderfully made, the same King who designed me with a purpose and knew me while I was in my mother's womb. He says I'm enough, worthy, beautiful, smart and I have a purpose.
Now, I don't strive for things of this world. I focus on my true identity and I thank God everyday for His love, mercy and Grace. It's not easy because this world will come against me to take down my joy, but when I remain rooted in my Identity and God's will for my life I can not be stopped as God is on my side.
Your freedom is worth fighting for friends! #jesusgirl#freedomfighter#fittoserve#fitbefore40#fitforservice#freedominchrist#identity
I am grateful for my working feet, there are others who wish they could run.
I am grateful for my breath, there are others who wish their lungs would fill with air.
I am grateful for my eyes, there are others who wish they could see.
I am grateful for my functioning body. While other's bodies are failing.
This is why, I run, I'm grateful for this gift of health. This is why, I strive to make healthy choices, I am grateful, I have the ability to choose.
I am grateful for these gifts from our Heavenly Father. #jesusgirl#fittoserve#fitforservice#mommy#mommyrunner#momof2girls
Focusing on "building the new"... what you're gaining instead of what your giving up can be the mindset that makes all the difference.
When I look at where I was, compared to where I am I can hardly believe it. I've tried this before. Exercise. Diet. I'm sure you have too. Why is it that nothing stuck?
This is different. It's different because of my mindset. Before it was temporary from day one. I'll eat this way until ....(fill in the blank). I'll exercise until I ....(fill in the blank).
There was always a goal weight I wanted to achieve, or a run I had signed up to do. Once that weight was met or that race/event was over, I was also done. Back to my old habits.
Not this time. My mindset has changed. There isn't an end goal this time. There isn't a date on the calendar. I WANT this to be my lifestyle. Our lifestyle.
Do you want this to be your lifestyle? It's small changes. It's consistent behavior. It's one step at a time. Are you ready to join me yet?
We start May 29th. I don't care if you've "tried everything" or have "done this before". It's going to be different this time because we are going to "build the new" together. Message me for details. No pressure, promise. If you're ready, awesome! If you're not, totally cool 😘
Is it God's will that you will sin today? A: Yes and No!
God has two Will's! One is His Word, the bible, and the other is His Eternal Will i.e. plan! We're responsible for the revealed one, the bible! The rules are found there. #accountabilitytoGOD#responsibilitytoGod
A difference of 14 months. As his coach, mentor, and brother in Christ, I can never be too proud of this young man @97.kronus Stephen Winstead! We work hard together to build each other up mind, body, and especially Spirit. Currently serving our country in the US Air Force, he is continuing to grow and never backs down from a challenge and is #integritydriven . That includes challenging me to be #abovetherest in all I do and how I serve others. To have been an example to Stephen and made a difference in his life, and to show him Christ, is a humbling honor. Proud of you man!

In the book of Judges we meet an incredible female warrior named Deborah. It speaks volumes that in this time period a community would consider a woman to be their leader and take them to battle. Her character, faith in God, and courage to face whatever came her way is what made her strong in the eyes of her followers.
As wives and mothers we face battles daily. So, whether you are leading an army of 10,000 or a family of three -- you are a leader. You have the ability and strength to face unimaginable odds because you have the strength of God on your side.
Let’s be a culture filled with Deborahs who are not afraid to lead our armies to battle. Let’s be women who are known by such strength of character that our husbands simply can’t go into battle without us by their side. It’s time we rise up as leaders and put our full trust in a God who can defeat even the strongest of enemies.
Do you ever feel like you are living life by 'default' and not by a vision?
Do you have a clear VISION with a PLAN?
The person I was did not have a clear vision and did not have that plan.
My real transformation started when I took that leap to go out of my comfort zone and finish a program from start to finish. I have broken that cycle of being both a procrastinator and a perfectionist.
I have learned so much by going through the 21 day fix program with my accountability and support group. I have learned that it is NOT ABOUT PERFECTION, ITS ABOUT PROGRESSION.
I saw an AMAZING transformation both MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY in that order. After I saw those results I had a VISION. My Vision is to pay that forward, and to help others create a vision and a plan in ACHIEVING their fitness and wellness goals.
My goal is to help three people a month to build their self confidence, strength, endurance, and energy.
We need to take care of ourselves so that we can care for others.
Put on that oxygen mask so that we can be Fit for Service!
