A Little Thing Called Faith.

March 26, 2012

"I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you. You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!"
{Psalm 139 11-18}

This passage makes me happy. I can’t even explain the peace and pure love I feel when I read this. I am wonderfully complex because He made me that way… not sure about you but that makes me feel less “weird” and more “special”! haha, we all have our quirks and funny traits but I know I am who God intended on me to be.
Even though I am a sinner and could never be perfect I am washed clean every day and His thoughts are precious when He thinks of me. I am His child. Goodness, if that doesn’t make you feel loved and safe I don’t know what would.
I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend, I know I did. I’m starting to see that God answers so many prayers and most of the time its when you least expect it. Faith is everything. Faith in God. Faith in His Word. Faith in prayer. And Faith in yourself. And most of all, Faith in His timing!

Yoga and God...?

March 17, 2012

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."Nelson Mandela

At the end of one of my yoga classes this week while lying down on my mat, soaking wet and with a cold lavender washcloth on my face the teacher read the quote above. I felt something move inside me. Something that wanted more. More of love, more of life, more giving for God and His people.

I’ve noticed that some people are a little negative about yoga because they believe it’s a type of religion. As far as I’m concerned I know where my heart is.

I begin each class with a silent prayer to God to put my heart in the right place. Using the hour I have in that class to grow closer to Him. Relying on His strength to push through the moves, using every breath that He has given me to inhale the love and exhale the bad.

When we are having the relaxation time at the end of class to meditate I spend that time lying on my back and talking to my Maker. Thanking Him for giving me a body that can endure the moves I have just completed. Giving me a heart that yearns to become closer to Him everyday.

For me yoga is more than just a workout. It is a spiritual experience however you want to use it. While I am in that HOT room I’m constantly working and talking to God so much that I feel like I am standing right in front of Him at times.

Once I FINALLY reach the end of the class and I lay down my body is so tired but I feel strength from inside. That quote truly hit me when I heard it. I’m so glad that I found this new love for Hot Yoga and I’m so excited about this new level of closeness to the Lord that I have also found… it’s such a blessing!! Now if I could talk the teachers into playing some Hillsong I would have an amazing experience! HA!

I truly hope everyone had an amazing week and hopefully you can make this Saturday beautiful!!! 

Letter from God

March 5, 2012

True. Love. Waits.
No man will ever claim you unless he claims you from Me. 
For I reserved a man for you who has My heart 
and loves Me even more than he loves you. 
For I won't give you unless he asks you from Me. 
He is asleep; don't wake him. 
He is busy for Me... 
for My Kingdom. 
Soon you will know him, but I have the perfect time. 
You are My princess and My daughter. 
Let no prince claim you unless he asks you from My hand for I am your Father and King of kings. 
You, my princess is worth loving for. 

I'm starting my new study and I am so excited. Lady in Waiting: Becoming God's Best While Waiting for Mr. Right and I have heard amazing things about it. I got it for a Christmas gift from my Mom but haven't had the chance to start it since I was in the middle of another study. 

Now it's time and I am so ready. I read the "Letter from God" above awhile ago and for the first time I feel like I am completely in the right frame of mind to know what this means. My heart is not my own... it belongs to Him. It is guarded. Safe. I'm so thankful for that feeling and I can't wait to dive into Lady in Waiting!!
