What are you believing?

The future is inside of you. You must see it with your heart before you can believe it with you mind. Then you will walk it out in your life.

Arnold Schwarzenegger became legend as a body builder. Not only did he have an extraordinary work ethic, but he had extraordinary belief. At one competition he was up against Lou Furrigno, another famous top competitor. Lou told Arnold before the show that he looked good, but probably not good enough to win. Arnold replied he felt so confident of his win that he had already called his Mother in Austria to tell her he had won.

This is the mindset of a Champion!

It doesn’t matter what you are pursuing. It could be to encourage you child in 1st grade phonics.

To overcome, carry on and finish strong we each must have intense BELIEF in better things.

Be Decided! ~Nicole

Holy GPS!

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

Notice the last portion of this verse. He rewards those who earnestly seek him. EARNESTLY, defined as, “marked by or showing deep sincerity or seriousness.” That means, though we plan and we should plan, we must be looking for God’s direction in our plan.
Have you ever taken a a trip, used the GPS, missed the turn and then what does GPS do? It reroutes your course. If you fail to look at the GPS you won’t know you are going in the wrong direction. God wants us completely dependent on His leadership. If we are glued to our plan, even a good one, but God has made other plans, he may give us a thousand life preservers, but we will miss our destination. It’s harder to be in control when we live this way, and for personalities that are more controlling in nature, it’s really hard…but not impossible! God’s got you and he wired you and also given you the ability to follow through with all HE has in mind for you. He’s got a plan that no man can duplicate, accelerate or escape! Be secure in it. ~Nicole

Intentional

With God, “What’s done is done” might not really be done…

All through the Bible we see amazing stories of how someone blew it and then God showed up with a miracle and saw them through it. Who you are is not dependent on what you do! Who you are is a result of to whom you belong to! You’ve been created by a King to do amazing things! You do your part and God does His…
I think there is a lot to be said about God’s willingness to reward our faithful efforts. Despite mistakes, mess ups, and days we just plain miss it. When He knows we are truly trying to follow His path, He is quick to fix it. So every goal you have ever set for your health and fitness or every other aspect of your life–it’s not too late. It’s not forsaken, it’s not beyond you or behind you. He is still with you and if you keep going–so will He! You have been forged from the Rock. You MIGHT as well be granite because you are ROCK SOLID !

God is Intentional about your Redemption! I think that’s pretty incredible. ~Nicole
