A little testimony on this Monday morning.So many see where I am today but don't know where I came from. This picture on the left popped up on my Facebook memories yesterday. It was November 25, 2012. I was newly married, no kids, and at the peak of my binge eating disorder. While I loved Jesus and walked with Him daily, there was one area of my life I couldn't surrender: my emotional/mental/physical wellness.
It was a 3 year journey of untangling my mess and still to this day remains an area I MUST put an armor on daily. This morning I am so thankful that God never gave up on me and relentlessly pursued my WHOLE heart. He wasn't content with partial obedience or partial freedom so He kept knocking. I reached the end of me and finally surrendered and man, while hard, painful, and uncomfortable, I experienced HIS grace and love like never before. It all began with digging deep into my identity and my beliefs because our beliefs precede our behaviors.
This is your reminder this morning that whatever that one area of your life you're struggling to surrender, let God in. He won't give up nudging you in it and will continue knocking. Will you answer?
And just know that this is my heart as a coach. It has now become not just an opportunity but a *responsibility* for me to come alongside others and help them untangle their wellness and commit to it HIS way. It is possible. I am a message away if you're ready to take it to the next level and let me be your coach. We will focus on a heart change before we work with our hands. That, my friend, is what guides surrendered effort!
