Wow, friends! It’s our last week of Holy Grit! I can’t believe how quickly it went and also how many challenges and blessings came throughout it in both Rachel and I’s lives. We are so grateful that each of you have joined us at some point during this journey and hope that you will still share with friends that they can join us via email list to start with week 1.
If you’d like to read through everything so far, make sure to check it out below:
This last week we are discussing strength as our lantern verse of Mark 12:30 has laid out (emphasis mine):
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Make sure you head over to Rachel’s blog to read about her take on strength from a Biblical perspective.
When I think about strength, I think about physical strength, spiritual strength, emotional strength and the ways that all these tie in together. Especially for women, it seems like our emotional feelings and needs can feed into how we think about our exercise, how we eat and a host of other things.
This week we’ll talk about strength and how to build it so that regardless of how we “feel” we will walk in obedience to Christ’s call on our lives to love the Lord with ALL of us.
So, today let’s write down our feelings. This may not seem natural at first, but seriously open up a journal and just start writing. Let your stream of consciousness flow from your mind and soul through the pen onto paper. Give yourself maybe even just 5 minutes to explore what makes you feel strong this week, how your body has felt after working out these past few weeks, how is your sleep? Do you feel connected to your family, your friends, your church? Is that affecting your desire to chase after God? To pursue your fitness and health goals, to get stronger?
God has called us to pursue Him with steadfast obedience even when we don’t “feel” like it. He is our ever-present help and He desires a relationship with you so much, that if you even just start praying about how you don’t feel like talking with God, that will be a starting point. Will you join me in writing and prayer today?
