Choose Your Own Adventure

I am going through an incredible online bible study through the book of Ephesians with Sarah Koontz and being reminded that we are worthy of our calling in Christ.

Lately, my fitness routine has been at some what of a standstill. It doesn’t mean that I am not working out, but just that I am not doing as much. I am not kicking up the intensity. I am choosing to dance more than a grueling HIIT.

I walk more than I run.

It has been good for this Mama’s soul as she prays and waits and wonders what God will do next for our little family.

What is our next adventure?

In our study today in Ephesians, Sarah mentioned that we are kind of on a choose your adventure journey….the gift of free will and choosing what we will do here on earth with what He has given us.  Our gifts and talents should be stewarded for Kingdom purposes, but it is easy to get lost on our way and some of our choices in our journey take us away.  Our choices do affect us.

With that all said, I am forever grateful that there are promises put in place long before I ever got here.  That when I chose Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I became a Co-heir in the inheritance.  I did nothing to earn that.  And neither did you, sweet sister.

Let’s worship Him today in that very thought and praise Him for His wonderful gift!

Read Ephesians 3:1-7 today and get a glimpse of this wonderful promise. As we exhibit free will, let it not be so that we can be more popular, more powerful, more rich, more influential, but to share the hope that we have in Christ Jesus!

As you workout today, or perhaps you are like me and taking it a little bit easier in your fitness routine, or you need something uplifting to listen to while working around the house (or on the job!), here is my Worship Playlist.

 

We Were Created for Good


In our pursuit of purpose, I believe most of us miss the mark on why we were created in the first place.

God does not need our attention or companionship. He does not need our money or anything flashy from us in order to fill His ego. He does not need a relationship with us.

Yet, He created us. He desired one with us. He wanted it because He saw that it was good. 

We were created for good. We were created for good works in Christ Jesus (see Ephesians 2:10) so that we may bring Him glory, but also so that others would come to know Him who loves us.

Often, when we talk of purpose, we think of big agendas and influence. Who doesn’t like to feel important or that they have a voice in this world, especially now. But purpose has very little to do with big bank accounts or big business. Each of us were created in Christ to fulfill good works in His name, whether we be a stay at home mom, working mama, or the CEO of a large company. 

If we pay attention to the word of God, we don’t see Him direct us to find purpose in our careers, but to follow Him and be led by the Holy Spirit to obey Him. I truly believe then, our purpose is made clear. 

Be a Size You,
