“Jealously guard your relationship with God. Jesus prayed “that they may be one just as We are one”—with nothing in between (John 17:22). Keep your whole life continually open to Jesus Christ. Don’t pretend to be open with Him. Are you drawing your life from any source other than God Himself? If you are depending on something else as your source of freshness and strength, you will not realize when His power is gone.” - from @oswaldchambers
“My utmost for His highest” devo on @youversion
Where do you get your ‘life’ from? Not like “your mom” but your energy/purpose?? For so long, I got mine from sources like fitness & competing. God was always part of my life, and I knew that He should be where I got purpose/value from. I would have said I believed that, but my actions reflected otherwise. It wasn’t until about a year ago where I realized that getting “life” from outside sources was not going to end well (aka I was lonely, never content, spending a lot of $, & always striving to be something I thought I needed to in order to feel important). I’m sure this will be a struggle for me more than I would like, but once I turned to God - He met me right where I was at & as I have fought for Him to be my source (again, I’m not perfect- it’s still a fight at times that I lose), He has shown me who I am in Him & given me a new life and purpose that drives me. I still Love fitness & nutrition, but it’s a part of my life that I do to enhance the rest of it - not something that I give all my energy to & rely on for value. 💕
Today’s workout was an easy 5mile Run listening to @levilusko #freshlifechurch
podcast (one of my new favorite podcasts btw!👍🏼). I followed it with a 35min-ish full body lift💪🏼- most my weights went up from last week 🤗 which is a good sign.
➡️Lifting program is on my site (Link in bio)
➡️ I took 3 @gainsinbulk
NO Chews pre-workout - code RebekahC10 for discount
➡️ the #ketoresetdiet
is going well - I’ll have a blog up later this week on it. I’m not striving for weight loss or ketosis - I’m just trying it on to see if it will make my #misophonia
disappear & see if I feel better on the #lchfdiet
as a lifestyle.
Happy Saturday everyone!!
