Being Yourself

Being yourself involves your Maker. He made you with certain gifts and traits. Never try to be more than you are, different than you are or less than you were designed to be or you will not have peace. Aceept your Maker’s perfection of design in you and bask in contentment of His wisdom in making you just as you are. And because He loves you so much, love yourself too, love Him back and love others. And that simple truth and working philosophy of life is the key to contentment and peace and beauty/glory in your life now and into eternity. God is most important. Then be yourself for Him.❤

God’s Fingerprints are All Over You

God lovingly designed you and His fingerprints are all over you. He made you exactly the way He wanted to for His delight. No one knows or loves you the way He does. And God never makes mistakes. He is perfect. So you are the product of His loving design. And He did not simply create you, He even provided a way for us to be eternally secure with God through Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. What a beautiful thought. Oh how precious you are to Him!! I think you are pretty amazing too. 😄❤

So Shocker, I am a Coach Again

In this health quest, I determined to say yes when they again needed a coach for 2nd and 3rd grade homeschool PE. There was a need and I decided to step in but requested a co-coach that can fill in if we need to be elsewhere. And it was granted… Perfect!

And after coaching my very big class, I am not tired but revitalized. I love coaching. And the sheer energy and excitement of these kids is energetic and helping them be healthier and learn different sports just makes my day.

And we start every day with prayer, so they are getting the “God made us to be healthy” connection. And that is one of my favorite new thoughts.

God made us to be healthy. Health is a choice. We were not made to be a lump, to be waited on, to do nothing but be entertained. All that is garbage. We were made to be healthy, to serve, to help, to love on people. And my kids remind me of that and so become the teachers. Beautiful!❤

Loving God is Natural

I don’t have to work hard to love God. It is natural.

I was designed to know and love God.

Yep, you were too. Hey, even the wounded person screaming that God doesn’t exist was made, designed lovingly to know and live His Creator. The proof is how angry they are, they are going against their makeup.

We were designed by God to know and love Him.

He loves us and built within us the wisdom to love Him back. We were designed to relate to Him. All our intricacies point to Him. All our gifts point to His love of us. All of our blessings remind us this has never changed.❤

Age Labels and Why to Defy Them

I am of “generation X”. Whoopty-doo. I actually like that title because in math “x” can be anything and I like to think any person can be anything they really, passionately want to be and are gifted for. But we were thought at one time to be independent thinkers (I believe they meant rebellious by that but never cared for that), computer savvy, television-dependent, attend church but are sometimes loose with the rules and so on. All these things are true of many born of my particular time and not true at all for others.

Milennials are those born in the decade or so after me, those who are in college now or just out. They are said to be dreamers wanting to make a significant difference, spoiled, living in a dream world with relative rules and moral lackness (and rarely attend church) with no work ethic and addicted to their tech. This is true of some and very false of many others.

The baby boomers are hitting retirement now, thought to be hard workers and morally correct for the most part, church still being a part of their lives, caring for family, the backbone of society and wise, people who steer clear of computers for the most part but still read actual books. This is true of some and not true of others.

Labels should most often by defied. Why? Because they put you in a box that has nothing to do with how God created you to be and how you should be if you are obeying Him. Age Labels (and most other labels) are only true and validated if people choose to never rise above them. For instance, anyone on earth with God’s help and living up to their original design, can read and study their Bibles and do what God says, becoming great men and women for the kingdom of Jesus. Every single person can do this at any age. And we absolutely should. This is not lazily falling into a role dictated by people but rising to a noble, heroic role dictated by design by an all-powerful God.❤

About Plateaus

Ya know, in life we have ups and downs. And generally we don’t appreciate the ups fully until we hit those downs. And of course when we are in the downs, we desperately long for the ups that we will again not fully appreciate and so on. That is the way of it. Most t hj ings n in nature God created to want to be neutral. All things were designed to be in balance with each other. It is true in chemistry, which I love, and biology and virology (for the most part) and microbiology (all of these of which I have studied in great depth in earning my science based doctorate).

Enter plateaus. These are the flatlands, thr neutral spaces, the balanced places, the waiting games places where nature is most content and we are not. These places I have come to accept and truly appreciate, for the ups and downs are not present here. Something has to happen to change the plateau. For weight loss, it is to try to change the proportions or mix up the menu or change the exercise. In life, a change event has to happen to go up or down, like a loss or gain or accident or surprise. In nature, an imbalance has to happen for things to scurry to get balanced again. God designed this. These plateaus should be celebrated for they increase stability and balance and allow for some rest before the change comes. They are indeed created by God (like we are) to be a blessing. We still work in the plateau, we all still do our job, nature does its job, mitochondria and enzymes do their job, everything is working but not in a stressed out way. This is an absolutely beautiful place to be, friends. See it as a blessing as it was designed to be for you. ❤

Kinesthetics

Motion is what we were built for. God made us to move. When we work in any way, we are validating our makeup and propogating health and balance. God even built within us the motivation to work and move, called endorphins that produce a natural high as a reward. We feel good doing what keeps us healthy. ❤
