“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.”
Romans 8:28-30 ESV #romans828#iamcalled#iamjustified#iamglorified#jesus
So tonight there is this.
I slowly breath it in. Crazy week with seven young grandsons, Christmas, 30 Plus loads of laundry, endless trips to the grocery store and my precious daughter who has been away for a long time is home...it is messy and beautiful. Full of hope loss grief recovery adoption foster care family belonging. It is in these times we choose what matters most to our hearts. So we show up reserve judgement and just love. It seems right. It looks like family. It feels like love. #sacrificial#itsnotaboutme#itsabouthisgrace#itallmatters#icecreammoments#grace#theyteachmeaboutlove#iamcalled
In this season I think often of that extraordinary verse in Isaiah 9:6, "For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given." I love what being said here!
The SON is not born; the Son eternally existed and is GIVEN. The CHILD is BORN and entered our time.
He who dwells in the realm of eternity entered time. He understands our times. And so it is that eternity breaks into time to give us a glimpse of what always was and is and will be. God in that divine moment revealed Himself as He had never been revealed before, through His Son. That is what the Christmas message is all about.
Many blessings to you from all of us at Fit For The Call as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. #christmas
// No matter your calling, God chose you for a mission, and He appointed a purpose for you well before you were born. This purpose is to bring glory to Jesus, to be His very hands and feet. And if the task is daunting, remember this: as He calls you, He leans in and whispers, “Don’t worry; I’ll empower your work.” - Rebekah Lyons ////
This quote is from the book “You Are Free” by Rebekah Lyons and I love it so much. God has called me out and I’ve had such fear. But God continues to reveal to me how He is always with me and He empowers me through it.💛 #rebekahlyons#youarefree#iamcalled#youarecalled#trustinhim#heempowers#heequips

✨Go BOLDLY after JOY like your life depends on it✨⠀
I know there’s probably a MILLION things on your to do list today. This Christmas Eve Eve, but don’t let it overwhelm you! ⠀
We are talking about BOLDNESS in my bootcamp this morning. And how Jesus gets it! He knows the struggle, the temptations, how easy it is to compare ourselves to others. Whatever your struggle, He KNOWS!!! And because of this - that baby we celebrate at Christmas time - tells you and me to come before Him with BOLDNESS asking for help with our struggles! ⠀
I don’t know about you, but that lights me UP!!! I don’t serve a far off, unapproachable God. I serve one who got down and dirty for me, starting with a manger in a stable 🐄🐐🐓! ⠀
Imma challenge you like I did my gals! Lay it all down at His feet with BOLDNESS today! ⠀
Lean into the season. Celebrate our Savior and find JOY in being able to lay your cares and struggles at His feet! ⠀
“Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need. “ Hebrews 4:16⠀

☀️Day Spotlight: Josie .
🏡 Little girls .
💭 One day I was walking down the hill and the teenage boys were tossing avocados out of the tree. Later that day I came back with one of the girls and and house moms to pick up the avocados. We ended up standing on a plastic stool on a kiddy table, reaching up with a broom handle and fork on the end to reach the avocados! .
📈 I learned how to be more flexible and value relationships
🗓 3 months
❓ What are all my responsibilities with the kids and what all is required of me in the orphanage?
“I've delivered us to where we are
I have journeyed farther
I am everything I've learned and more
Still it calls me
And the call isn't out there at all,
it's inside me
It's like the tide; always falling and rising
I will carry you here in my heart you'll remind me
That come what may
I know the way!” -From the movie Moana
Disney movies can teach us some
of the most valuable lessons in life.
I know that calling. It’s inside me.
Reach out if you feel that calling too. If it isn’t clear to you let’s talk and see what you’re being called to. “Do you know who you are?”
I set before you life and death blessing and cursing - Hint: CHOOSE LIFE!! Deu 30:19
I used to tell my kids the devil is like a mouse with a megaphone 📣🐀 He is great at special effects, using lights, smoke and mirrors, making you afraid when there really isn’t anything there.
His plan is to make you believe his lies, so that you will choose to follow his path for your life.
That’s the thing y’all, YOU CHOOSE, life is all about choices! And when you do it gives that light show power to manifest itself in your life.
There are two paths before you one filled with love, life and peace, the other fear, doubt and pain. I am not saying it’s always easy, butterflies and rainbows but I am saying it’s ALWAYS a choice!
When a decision sits before you and you don’t know which to choose? FOLLOW AFTER PEACE!!! Heb 12:14
Scroll through the pics to see WHY I am to freaking excited not to share!! I was taking my after pics from our Fall Challenge today (last pic) and I got SO excited about my abs that I totally cut my face out of the picture!! 😂😂 I knew y’all wouldn’t understand my excitement if you didn’t know what those abs used to look like!! 🔶The first picture was December 2016 just 2 weeks before I started my health journey. So tired, weak, defeated and hurting all the time!
🔷The middle one, November 2017 a year in with huge changes!! Energy like crazy, sleeps like a log, no more pain and 30 lbs gone and down 3 sizes!! ♥️Then TODAY!!! Umm ya!!! Down another 10 lbs and 2 sizes but the BEST part is the definition and strength I gained this year!!! #crushinggoals Happy happy happy dancing over the place today!!💃🏼💃🏼 I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!!! 🙌Come On Jesus!🙌 I am opening up 10 spots for my New Year Mentorship Group.
